Ann Coulter Blames Single Moms for Rape, Murder
Filed under: Opinions
Whoo, boy, Ann Coulter was busy this week.
During a Wednesday morning visit to the "Today Show," the Queen of Conservatives unleashed her wrath on single moms and 9/11 widows, calling women who lost their husbands in the terrorist attack "griefazillas" and saying that any societal problem -- including murders and rape -- can be traced back to single moms.
Coulter was promoting her newest book, "Guilty: Liberal "Victims" and Their Assault on America," when, during an interview with Matt Lauer, she blamed the majority of society's ills on single mothers. She claims that the "liberal media" exalts the single mom, despite the fact that -- her words, not mine -- most teenage mothers, runaways, murderers and rapists can be traced back to them.
Later in her visit she told Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb that 9/11 widows "advance" socially and financially using their "victimhood as a shield."
I happened to catch the interview as it aired, and watched as Coulter crossed and uncrossed her boot-clad calves and tossed the blond mane that makes her the Hottie of Hotheads.
As I watched her lean forward and raise one eyebrow all the while blaming women -- her own gender -- for the downfall of society, I wondered just what could motivate such a viperous display of bile. Is she just saying these things to stir up publicity for her ridiculous tome, or is it a case of Histrionic Personality Disorder? I mean, what kind of person do you have to be to make Kathie Lee Gifford look totally disgusted?
Or hey, maybe she has one of those satanic single moms. That might explain the whole thing.
I have to hand it to her. If she was looking to cause outrage, she did a good job.
