hy do I say this? Because of what the lovely Ms. Coulter said here, on that FOX News show Hannity and Colmes:
COLMES: Is that what that is? You certainly don't feel that New Yorkers are cowards?
COULTER: I think they would immediately surrender [to terrorists if attacked].
God, what a sickening person Coulter is, and how black her heart must be. New Yorkers would surrender? Upon what does Ann Coulter base this statement? Certainly not on how New Yorkers responded when they actually were attacked.
New Yorkers ran into fire and smoke and dust and debris to save others, and many New Yorkers died doing so. New Yorkers stood in the upper floors of those burning towers, knowing that they were doomed, and many of them called home to say goodbye before choosing their deaths rather than having their deaths forced upon them by jumping from those heights. New Yorkers didn't surrender; they faced it head-on while the rest of America looked on, horrified and amazed, via television screens and radios and computer monitors.
In Casablanca, Rick Blaine responded to Major Strasser's speculation on a German invasion of New York thusly: "Major, there are certain sections of New York I wouldn't advise you to try to invade." That's still true today -- but not for Ann Coulter, who wants to be able to use 9-11-01 to justify all of her insane right-wing hatred but who also wants to curl up with her hatred of everyone to her left like a warm blanket.
There are few persons in American public life of whom I can honestly claim to feel hatred. Ann Coulter is one of them.
