That Nice Coulter Girl

I seldom listen to Ann Coulter longer than it takes to change channels, which is no doubt why I was surprised at this in the San Francisco Weekly (h/t Charles P. Pierce):

It just took a few shootings at Kent State to shut that down for good.

Surely Ms. Coulter couldn’t have said that out loud, right where humans could hear it? Maybe the San Francisco Weekly was doing a Lazy American on her: maybe “shootings” referred to what photojournalists do and “that” referred to the Vietnam War. To be fair and balanced, which is sort of a religion with me, I went to the KFSO radio site and made myself listen to the whole interview. The Weekly had the quote right, word for word. In context, “shootings” referred to the 67 rounds fired by the Ohio National Guard at long range, murdering the four unarmed, nonviolent students pictured below. “That” referred to student protests by the SDS and other commie-loving surrender monkeys of the day.

People like her who promote the killing of innocents should be sent to a place resembling hell sooner, rather than later. I'm non-violent but, these people will kill you for simply having the audacity to disagree with them. Our leader seems to have no problem with the killing of innocents and I damn near got killed for having the audacity to campaign for him in the deep South. I'm at my wits end.

As Mr. Reagan said at the time: "If it takes a bloodbath, let's get it over with!"

Yes re: the passivity of "our leader" as the police violence becomes really puzzlingly shameless.

A family friend was quite menacingly seen off the property of a Nevada company town because the overseer caught him campaigning for Obama there in 2008.

And now this.
