Leaders with Ginni Thomas: Ann Coulter

Ann Coulter is that rarest species of culture warrior-princesses, the feminista republicana. But although Coulter is a one-of-a-kind phenomenon (much to the relief of countless liberals), there’s no denying that she’s a feminist icon.

To make her point on the front lines of today’s toughest rhetorical battlegrounds, Coulter uses wit, logic and a fearlessness that reminds her opponents that she is, in fact, a real-live lawyer. Coulter tangles — and seems to enjoy it — with MSNBC hosts, liberal university professors, and just about everyone else who believes President Obama’s inauguration was a red-letter day. (She might call it a red-menace day.)

What many have missed, though, is Coulter’s core religious faith. It’s what makes her tick, sustains her in the face of left-leaning barbs, drives her writing (she has penned eight New York Times bestsellers) and gives her the confidence to endure grilling after grilling by unsympathetic TV hosts.

Recently, The DC’s Ginni Thomas interviewed Ann Coulter on the streets of Washington. They talked about faith, political double-standards, the mass media’s villains and heroes, and much, much more.

Who are the villains and heroes on the American media scene?

“I suppose I should say the entire line-up on MSNBC but they give me such belly laughs I can’t really put them in the villain category.”

Discuss your religious faith and how you integrate it into politics.

“There was no epiphany like many of my friends have had. I just become more of an adult and became more serious. And life is so much better when you’re a serious Christian.”

Why do you do what you do?

“It wasn’t really my decision. I was practicing law. I had no idea you could make a living making fun of liberals. And I think God just decided we got enough lawyers because I kept fighting it and he kept moving me into it.”

Tell us an anecdote about Matt Drudge.

“Drudge came up with the cover to my book.”

    I see why you ball yourself bad “boy.” If you were bad “Man” you’d know that it’s ridiculous to allow women to vote.

    What happened to the interview??

    Ann Coulter is our Sarah Connor- she just uses her brains and words instead of a machine gun.  I have no doubt however, that if we needed to actually fight for our lives against some of our obvious enemies, she would be a true warrior and I’d be right beside her.  :)

    I’d rather have a painful rash on my butt than Ann Coulter in my bed — because the one would lead to the other

    Ann Coutler is the best and I applaud her nerve Ann Coutler for president

    Hey everyone just ordered a new book 365 ways to make a Liberal Crazy as if they aren’t already spinning like a top. Can’t wait to use this in Mass.where I’m surrounded by this faction. I’m doing everything possible to get my fellow Veterans involved and it’s working.

    Um… badboy, it’s now known by most that Ann is in fact correct in the clip you posted.  You should probably crawl back in your hole and think twice about posting untruthful videos, it just embarrasses your worthless liberal ideology.

      Atlas,
      Coulter claimed that Canada sent troops to fight in Vietnam and that statement is demonstrably false. She openly displayed her ignorance as you do yours.

      And btw, did you know that Ayn Rand idolized a serial killer?

      Badboy,

      The Canadian government sent troops to Vietnam in August 1954 during the partition of Vietnam. They stayed through January 1973. They incurred casualties and several deaths. Confirmation and further details appear in the articles on International Control Commission and International Commission of Control and Supervision, both of which contain extensive links and references.
      The government of Canada awarded medals to 1,550 of these troops for their service between August 7, 1954 and January 28, 1973. A second medal was also awarded to the 240 Canadian troops who participated in Operation Gallant in Vietnam from January 28, 1973 to July 31, 1973.

      Canadian military personnel who died while in Vietnam or other parts of Indochina include:
      Sergeant James S. BYRNE, CD, Royal Canadian Army Service Corps. Died 18 Oct 1965.
      Corporal Vernon J. PERKINS, Royal Highland Regiment of Canada (Black Watch).
      Leading Seaman Ned W. MEMNOOK, HMCS TERRA NOVA. Died 15 Mar 1973. He was posthumously awarded the Special Service Medal & “PEACE” Clasp
      Captain Charles E. LAVIOLETTE, CD, 12e Regiment Blinde du Canada. Died 7 Apr 1973.
      A simple two minute google search would have saved you from making a jackass of yourself, but hey I realize that is standard liberal fare.  “Demonstrably false” – LMAO, not the sharpest tool in the shed.

        Atlas,
        Nice spin but it won’t work. 
        Coulter claimed that Canada sent its troops to fight in Vietnam and that’s clearly false.
        They sent peacekeepers as early as 1954 and some Canadians volunteered independently, but to imply that the Canadian government directed its military to fight in Vietnam is a blatant lie.
        But then Ayn Rand always was willing to lie, wasn’t she?  Read and learn:
        ——————————————————————————

        Canada
        became officially involved in the Vietnam conflict in 1954, as part of
        the International Commission for Supervision and Control in Vietnam. 
        The role of the Canadians, along with personnel from Poland and India,
        enforced the Geneva Convention accords, supervised cease fires, and
        monitored the movement of refugees. 

        However, the Canadian role was one of peacekeeping, and we were not considered to be a “belligerent” nation.
        Many
        people are unaware of the Canadian Vietnam veterans existence. During
        the Vietnam War, Canada gained more of a reputation as a haven for draft
        dodgers and deserters than it did as a source of volunteers.  It is
        estimated that 150,000 Americans fled to Canada during the war, in order
        to avoid military service. In addition, many deserters from the U.S.
        military made their way to Canada, hoping to find safe haven from
        military justice.

        As one U.S. Marine said, commenting on the draft dodgers and the Canadians volunteering to fight with the Americans, “the worst of ours are going north, and the best of theirs are coming south”.
        Some estimates claim between 20,000 and 30,000 Canadians volunteered
        for service within the branches of the United States military… serving
        in the army, navy, air force and marines. Of this number, it is
        believed approximately 12,000 Canadians actually went to Vietnam.  A
        Canadian government official states that, he believes, less than 5,000
        Canadians served in Vietnam. The true number of those who served may
        never actually be known.  Many crossed at border cities, and listed that
        town as their place of residence. Others had dual citizenship, and were
        enlisted as “Americans”, while more were already members of the U.S.
        military prior to the outbreak of the war.

        badboy,

        WTF are you talking about?  Do you even watch the videos that you post?  Perhaps you just can’t comprehend what you hear and see.  

        Coulter’s statement is clear and correct as I stated in my previous post.  She said they sent troops, there is no spin on this side.  You say troops, but not to fight, then you try to backup and refer to them as peacekeepers.  

        Tell us about these “peacekeepers” are they hippies with signs, Catholic school girls with daisies?  Oh, I know, maybe they were community organizers?  Do tell us all – what were all those peacekeepers that actually received medals from the Canadian government?  Hint – they carried guns.  It is clear what they were and it is clear to everyone you are making a fool of yourself.

          Atlas,
          It’s pretty clear you think you can spin your way out of this but you’re simply embarrassing yourself.
          I post facts about Canada’s actions in Vietnam directly from a Canadian military site while you spin, blather, whine and obfuscate.

          Coulter knew she was whipped and you know you’re whipped as well. The difference is you probably enjoy getting whipped.

          batboy,
          Are you a hypocrite, bi poler, or just enjoy making outrageous and contradictory statements for the sake of self approval? Even your post states Canada became involved in Vietnam in 1954 – by sending troops, call them what you like, but they sent troops. There’s really not anything more to debate here.

          • badboy

            Atlas,
            Can’t you read?  Did Objectivism destroy your brain?
            Canada, like India and Poland, sent troops to supervise ceasefires and to transport refugees, not to fight or support U.S. battlefield operations..
            Are you going to argue now that India was our military ally in the Vietnam War?
            Ayn Rand is dead, thank God.  Give it up.
