In keeping with the holiday spirit, Christmas in particular: Do you remember as a child asking Santa Claus for one particular present which was number one on your list? After all, you stated to him as you sat on his lap that you had been at your best all-year-long. You stated to him that you had not been naughty during the year and he assured you that under your Christmas tree, a special present would be delivered to you.
For many our Christmas gift came early and that was the decisive victory of President-elect Barack Obama over his Republican challenger, Senator John McCain on Election Day. The moment it was revealed to all who supported Obama that he was declared president-elect, we said thank you to Santa Claus.
So we assumed that we would not have to put up with miscreants like Ann Coulter during these next four years. How wrong were we? Very! It has now been reported by MediaMatters.org that none-other than Ann Coulter is scheduled to be interviewed on January 6, 2009. I would say instead of a present, this is tantamount to a lump of coal being placed in our stockings. But, that singular piece of coal through this invite grew exponentially.
Her words and appearance on any network, is as toxic as the waste that coal creates as evident in the sludge-spill that occurred in Tennessee. The coal-filled sludge was reported to consist of, “1.8 million cubic yards or more than 360 million gallons of sludge. By Friday, the estimate reached 5.4 million cubic yards or more than 1 billion gallons -- enough to fill 1,660 Olympic-size swimming pools.” I would say that letting Ann Coulter speak of her new book is as toxic-filled and just as devastating as this sludge-spill was reported to be. In fact the crap she spews can fill up just as many pools if not more.
When MediaMatters.org reported Ann Coulter stating, "we could get all of his aliases before he’s sworn in on the Quran," All I have to say to that is, "Geez, Ann, get a brain to pay attention to the numerous reports citing that President-elect Barack Obama will be sworn in using the 'Lincoln Bible'.” Exactly what aliases is she citing? Oh yes, she is referring to his middle name which is Hussein. To me, his middle-name Hussein is just his middle name. If there is any toxicity in a name, it is none-other than Ann Coulter.
If we are to believe which we will not that Hussein had weapons of mass destruction when it was proven he did not, her words to NBC’s viewing audience are provable weapons of mass destruction. At this critical juncture in our nation’s history where we have an economic meltdown, two wars still be waged overseas and the new war between Israel and Hamas, we need pragmatic voices and not destructive voices.
I am left to ask NBC, “Exactly what are you thinking by inviting her to present what misguided ideas she has?” Invite people that are of high-minded thinking who can add something to our nation’s dialogue to help solve the immense problems we are all facing. Voices like Coulter only seek to destroy this nation.
Lastly, I ask all of my readers to call up NBC and tell them you do not approve of them giving this hateful ideologue a podium by calling this number, (212) 664-4444. Also report back to MediaMatters.org how they reacted to the call placed.
