Ann Coulter is still playing her stupid game for Israel. She is still pimping the Zionist system, postulating one crazy thing after another without even thinking about its moral and political implications.
After the Israelis were obviously caught liquidating Gazans, Coulter took to Twitter to declare: “Can we [Americans] do that?” This woman is still living in a dream world, and Abby Martin was right in saying, “Fascist @AnnCoulter responds to Israel’s ongoing massacre of unarmed protesters by calling for the execution of Mexicans who cross into the US.”
Coulter has been defending Israel’s crimes since the beginning of time. You remember what she said a few years ago? When all the GOP candidates were talking about how they were going to lick Israel’s boots if they were elected, Coulter tweeted: “How many f—ing Jews do these people think there are in the United States?” She also said:
“How to get applause from GOP donors: 1) Pledge to start a war 2) Talk about job creators 3) Denounce abortion 4) Cite Reagan 5) Cite Israel…. How about Huckabee, Rubio, Kasich etc talk about Israel’s sturdy and effective border fence?”
The Jerusalem Post and the Daily Beast quickly denounced Coulter as anti-Semitic. Coulter, of course, had to beg for mercy in order to get accepted by the Neocon and Zionist gangs again. She had to declare:
“Anyone with a pulse knows I am pro-Israel and against the enemies of the Jewish people. I have a whole chapter in my current book praising Israel and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. It’s the people attacking me who couldn’t care less about Israel or Jews.
“The hypocrites who are mad at me are the ones who support anti-Israel college professors, who refuse to condemn Islamic barbarism, who supported the overthrow of Mubarak for the Muslim Brotherhood, who spread the deadly libel that Jews in America are only successful because of ‘white privilege.”
Coulter has been whoring and prostituting for Israel and the war machine in the United States decades. In 2005, she wrote that “Bush uttered the indisputably true fact that British intelligence believed Saddam Hussein had tried to acquire uranium from Africa.” A colossal lie.
Paul R. Pillar, a 28-year old CIA veteran and a visiting professor at Georgetown University, declares in his book Intelligence and U.S. Foreign Policy that U.S. intelligence agencies have repeatedly told Bush that there was no evidence supporting the claim that Saddam was getting uranium from Africa.
When the debacle in Iraq produced unwanted consequences such as sodomy at Abu Ghraib and inhumane torture, Coulter again was on the move to defend the Neocon crowd. “I suffered more just listening to the endless repetition of those Abu Ghraib stories than the actual inmates ever did,” she sniffed indignantly.
Back in 2013, Coulter again declared in Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican that “The magnificently successful Iraq War has been rewritten as a failure” by the so-called Left. In the same book, she again declared that America “won” the war, “executed a dictator, presided over democratic elections and killed loads of al Qaeda fighters.”
No serious historian or scholar or even a journalist will take that silly position anymore. Jean Edward Smith, a biographer and the John Marshall Professor of Political Science at Marshall University, has recently put the final nail in the coffin of the Bush administration.
“Whether George W. Bush was the worst president in American history will be long debated,” Smith writes in his recent biography of Bush, “but his decision to invade Iraq is easily the worst foreign policy decision ever made by an American president.”
Other military historians and scholars such as Andrew J. Bacevich say similar things. Bacevich, also retired career officer in the Armor Branch of the United States Army, writes:
“Apart from a handful of deluded neoconservatives, no one believes that the United States accomplished its objectives in Iraq, unless the main objective was to commit mayhem, apply a tourniquet to staunch the bleeding, and then declare the patient stable while hastily leaving the scene of the crime.”
In short, Coulter is paid to say crazy things, weird things, dumb things, and diabolical things.
