Publicidade

Ann Hart Coulter é uma advogada, jornalista e polemista norte-americana.

Abertamente republicana e conservadora, Coulter é colunista de diversos periódicos estadunidenses de direita e escritora de sucesso, com vários livros na lista de best-sellers do The New York Times. Ann Coulter é solteira e sem filhos, tendo namorado o editor da Revista Spin, Bob Guccione, Jr e o escritor também conservador Dinesh D'Souza. Frequenta a Redeemer Presbyterian Church, do pastor Timothy J. Keller.

Frequentemente aparece na televisão, rádio e discursa em eventos públicos e privados. É conhecida por causar controvérsias com seus artigos conservadores, defendendo o Presidente George W. Bush, o ex-senador Joseph McCarthy.

Embora tenha trabalhado originalmente como colunista em jornais como o New York Times, acabou por ser substituída pelos editores pois os leitores consideravam o seu estilo acutilante, bombástico, fanático e mal intencionado. Entre os exemplos deste estilo estão as críticas que fez às viúvas do 11 de Setembro no livro Godless -- The Church of Liberalism onde sugere mesmo que elas são milionárias à procura da fama e que deveriam aparecer na Playboy.

Outras citações polémicas incluem a defesa da guerra como uma nova cruzada pelo Cristianismo. No dia seguinte ao 11 de Setembro ela escreveu no seu site oficial:

"Os aeroportos aplicam escrupulosamente o mesmo abuso ridiculamente ineficaz tanto a Suzy Chapstick como a sequestradores muçulmanos. É ridículo supor que cada passageiro é um potencial maníaco homicida enlouquecido. Nós sabemos quem são os maníacos homicidas. São esses que estão a cantar e dançar neste preciso momento. Nós devemos invadir seus países, matar seus líderes e convertê-los ao Cristianismo. Nós não éramos seletivos sobre encontrar e punir somente Hitler e seus oficiais superiores. Nós bombardeamos cidades alemãs inteiras; nós matamos civis. Isso era a guerra. E esta é a guerra."

Em termos de direitos das mulheres, num episódio do programa Politicamente Incorrecto

"Eu acho que as mulheres devem ter armas mas não devem votar… as mulheres não têm capacidade para compreender como é que o dinheiro é ganho. Elas têm muitas ideias de como o gastar… é sempre sobre dinheiro em educação, mais dinheiro para cuidados infantis, mais dinheiro para creches."

Numa outra ocasião afirmou:

"Seria um país muito melhor se as mulheres não votassem. Isto é um facto. Na realidade, em todas as eleições presidenciais desde 1950 - exceto Goldwater em '64 - os Republicanos teriam ganho, se apenas votassem os homens."

Ann já lançou vários livros, entre eles How to talk to a liberal : the world according to Ann Coulter , Slander : liberal lies about the American right , Treason : liberal treachery from the cold war to the war on terrorism , Godless -- The Church of Liberalism , The Case against Bill Clinton , entre outros.

Citações Ann Coulter

„At this, even Hillary Clinton was thinking, "Come on, guys — let's grow a pair."“

—  Ann Coulter
Context: The not-visibly-insane Democrats all claim they'll get rough with the terrorists, but they can't even face Brit Hume. In case you missed this profile in Democrat machismo, the Democratic presidential candidates are refusing to participate in a debate hosted by Fox News Channel because the hosts are "biased." But they'll face down Mahmoud Ahmadinejad! At this, even Hillary Clinton was thinking, "Come on, guys — let's grow a pair." "No Wonder They're Afraid of Brit Hume" (3 May 2007) http://townhall.com/columnists/anncoulter/2007/05/03/no_wonder_theyre_afraid_of_brit_hume/page/full/.

„God said, "Earth is yours. Take it. Rape it. It's yours."“

—  Ann Coulter
Context: God gave us the earth. We have dominion over the plants, the animals, the trees. God said, "Earth is yours. Take it. Rape it. It's yours." Making references to Dominionism and Genesis 1:28 http://www.mechon-mamre.org/p/pt/pt0101.htm#28, on Hannity & Colmes (20 June 2001).

„I just can't imagine anyone not seeing 9/11 as a really good reason for wiping out Islamic totalitarians.“

—  Ann Coulter
Context: I was not enthusiastic about the last Gulf war. Of course, it goes without saying, I rooted for our team once the shooting started. But I wasn't for that war. I was also against sending Americans to the Balkans. My point is, I'm genuinely against America deploying troops without a really, really good reason. I just can't imagine anyone not seeing 9/11 as a really good reason for wiping out Islamic totalitarians. As quoted in "An appalling magic" in The Guardian (17 May 2003) http://www.guardian.co.uk/weekend/story/0,3605,956452,00.html.

„I’ve never seen people enjoying their husbands’ deaths so much.“

—  Ann Coulter
Context: These self-obsessed women seemed genuinely unaware that 9/11 was an attack on our nation and acted as if the terrorist attacks happened only to them. The whole nation was wounded, all our lives reduced. But they believed the entire country was required to marinate in their exquisite personal agony. Apparently denouncing Bush was an important part of their closure process. These broads are millionaires, lionized on TV and in articles about them, reveling in their status as celebrities and stalked by grief-arazzis. I’ve never seen people enjoying their husbands’ deaths so much. Speculation on motives and desires of politically active widows which caused public controversy, p. 103, quoted in "Coulter lambastes 9/11 widows in new book" at MSNBC (7 June 2006) http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/13186261/.

„The ethic of conservation is the explicit abnegation of man's dominion over the Earth.“

—  Ann Coulter
Context: The ethic of conservation is the explicit abnegation of man's dominion over the Earth. The lower species are here for our use. God said so: Go forth, be fruitful, multiply, and rape the planet — it's yours. That's our job: drilling, mining and stripping. Sweaters are the anti-Biblical view. Big gas-guzzling cars with phones and CD players and wet bars — that's the Biblical view.

„Not all Muslims may be terrorists, but all terrorists are Muslims — at least all terrorists capable of assembling a murderous plot against America that leaves 7,000 people dead in under two hours.“

—  Ann Coulter
Context: Not all Muslims may be terrorists, but all terrorists are Muslims — at least all terrorists capable of assembling a murderous plot against America that leaves 7,000 people dead in under two hours. How are we to distinguish the peaceful Muslims from the fanatical, homicidal Muslims about to murder thousands of our fellow citizens? "Future widows of America: Write your congressman" in Jewish World Review (28 September 2001).

„We know who the homicidal maniacs are. They are the ones cheering and dancing right now.
We should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity.“

—  Ann Coulter
Context: Airports scrupulously apply the same laughably ineffective airport harassment to Suzy Chapstick as to Muslim hijackers. It is preposterous to assume every passenger is a potential crazed homicidal maniac. We know who the homicidal maniacs are. They are the ones cheering and dancing right now. We should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity. We weren't punctilious about locating and punishing only Hitler and his top officers. We carpet-bombed German cities; we killed civilians. That's war. And this is war.

„Liberals are driven by Satan and lie constantly.“

—  Ann Coulter
Context: So for those of you who haven't read any of my five best-selling books: Liberals are driven by Satan and lie constantly. "That was no lady — That was my husband" (28 June 2007) http://townhall.com/columnists/anncoulter/2007/06/28/that_was_no_lady_--_that_was_my_husband/page/full/.

„I say let's do it. Let's repress them. … Frankly, I'm not a big fan of the First Amendment.“

—  Ann Coulter
Context: The Democrats complain about the Republican base being nuts … The nuts are their entire party … They're always accusing us of repressing their speech. I say let's do it. Let's repress them. … Frankly, I'm not a big fan of the First Amendment. Comments at the University of Florida (21 October 2005), as quoted in "Coulter courts Gainesville" by Jessica Riffel, in The Alligator (21 October 2005) http://www.alligator.org/pt2/051021coulter.php.

„If Chicago had been hit, I assure you New Yorkers would not have cared.“

—  Ann Coulter
Context: If Chicago had been hit, I assure you New Yorkers would not have cared. What was stunning when New York was hit was how the rest of America rushed to New York's defense. New Yorkers would have been like, "It's tough for them; now let's go back to our Calvin Klein fashion shows." On the September 11 attacks, as quoted in "An appalling magic" in The Guardian (17 May 2003).

„I wouldn't kill an abortionist myself, but I wouldn't want to impose my moral values on others.“

—  Ann Coulter
Context: I wouldn't kill an abortionist myself, but I wouldn't want to impose my moral values on others. No one is for shooting abortionists. But how will criminalizing men making difficult, often tragic, decisions be an effective means of achieving the goal of reducing the shootings of abortionists? "49 Million to Five" (3 June 2009).

„The portrayal of Senator Joe McCarthy as a wild-eyed demagogue destroying innocent lives is sheer liberal hobgoblinism.“

—  Ann Coulter
Context: The portrayal of Senator Joe McCarthy as a wild-eyed demagogue destroying innocent lives is sheer liberal hobgoblinism. Liberals weren't cowering in fear during the McCarthy era. They were systematically undermining the nation's ability to defend itself while waging a bellicose campaign of lies to blacken McCarthy's name. Everything you think you know about McCarthy is a hegemonic lie. Liberals denounced McCarthy because they were afraid of getting caught, so they fought back like animals to hide their own collaboration with a regime as evil as the Nazis.

„Apparently, even crazy people prefer targets that can't shoot back.“

—  Ann Coulter
Context: Apparently, even crazy people prefer targets that can't shoot back. The reason schools are consistently popular targets for mass murderers is precisely because of all the idiotic "Gun-Free School Zone" laws. From the people who brought you "zero tolerance," I present the Gun-Free Zone! Yippee! Problem solved! Bam! Bam! Everybody down! Hey, how did that deranged loner get a gun into this Gun-Free Zone? "Let's Make America a 'Sad-Free Zone'!" (18 April 2007).

„They have no interest in — or aptitude for — persuasion. Their goal is to anathematize their enemies.“

—  Ann Coulter
Context: Ironically, for all of their love of conspiracy theories — the rigging of the 2000 election, vote suppression in Ohio in 2004, 9/11 being an inside job, oil companies covering up miracle technology that would allow cars to run on dirt, Britney Spears' career, etc., etc. — when presented with an actual conspiracy of Soviet spies infiltrating the U. S. government, they laughed it off like world-weary skeptics and dedicated themselves to slandering Joe McCarthy. Then as now, liberals protect themselves from detection with wild calumnies against anybody who opposes them. They have no interest in — or aptitude for — persuasion. Their goal is to anathematize their enemies. "McCarthyism: The Rosetta Stone of Liberal Lies" (8 November 2007) http://townhall.com/columnists/anncoulter/2007/11/08/mccarthyism_the_rosetta_stone_of_liberal_lies/page/full/.

„Where there is a vacuum of ideas, paranoia slips in.“

—  Ann Coulter
Context: Where there is a vacuum of ideas, paranoia slips in. Much of the left's hate speech bears greater similarity to a psychological disorder than to standard political discourse. The hatred is blinding, producing logical contradictions that would be impossible to sustain were it not for the central element faith plays in the left's new religion. The basic tenet of their faith is this: Maybe they were wrong about their facts and policies, but they are good and conservatives are evil. You almost want to give it to them. It's all they have left. p. 254.
