Ann Coulter: Neocon bomb thrower thinks Obama is “Monkey”?
[ Life]

Yesterday evening, the popular neoconservative commentator and author Ann Coulter felt impulsive enough to call Barack Obama a “monkey” who is apparently being danced around by Russian President Vladimir Putin.

To put it mildly, Coulter is not new to controversy. Like a precision clock, she has the remarkable penchant for saying something so outrageous every month that you can almost bet your mortgage on it.

If it weren’t for Coulter’s academic accomplishments – she is an alumnus of Cornell University and Michigan Law School – her wildly successful writing career, and vast knowledge base, one could almost write her off as a crackpot venting her spleen on live TV.

But given the huge audience she commands through her columns, books and TV appearances, the shock value her comments represent cannot be taken lightly.

Most of us who are aware of the dark history of slavery across the world, know that certain words and phrases carry an extraordinary degree of offensiveness to certain races or ethnic groups. The word “monkey” when used to describe a Black person, carries a special connotation which is deeply revolting to say the least.

Outrageous as it may be, do such remarks serve Coulter’s political cause well? Her earlier twitter comment on Syria sounded vastly more normal compared to her TV shock-jock theatrics, where she made a valid point about American diplomacy and military involvement in Syria:

Perhaps a more poignant assertion can be made here that the level of discourse across the political spectrum, from far right to far left, has taken the form of verbal twerking, where political points, viewership volume, and TV ratings are scored based on how much outrage, titillation and drool it can create.

While the casualties in Syria are mounting to a level not seen since Iraq war, the Dollar is on life support thanks to endless wars, “free” trade, and inflationary printing, national debt is spiraling out of control, Medicaid is delivering half of all babies in America, the last thing we need is to distract America with yet another verbal “twerk” that causes gnashing of teeth, raised eyebrows, flurry of condemnations throughout social media, but little thoughtful debate, introspection and decision making.

    Emma, you’re an idiot to begin with, plus you can’t spell or use proper grammar. Second, she didn’t say he was a monkey, she said Putin was making him look like a monkey or making him dance around like a monkey. Maybe she should have just said Putin, the professional killer, was making Obama look like an idiot. That would have been 100% correct and that certainly would have been the truth as he is an amateur world leader surrounded by other idiots of his own choosing. Yes, oh yes, let the balance of the world rest in the hands of a college protestor who never grew up. That makes about as much sense as electing him in the first place, much less the second place. He and Weiner would have been a good team…the dumbing of America continues. Emma, roll on, I’m sure you look like an absolute doll…sure!

      Maybe Emma’s first language isn’t English……. Or maybe you’re right. However, Ann actually said,” Putin has made a monkey out of Obama.” While Putin has not made Obama look like an idiot (or monkey), he has made it clear that he, himself and Russia, are taking the lead on the Syria issue. Though, Obama now looks like a leader who just bluffs, his recent decision for non-military action is one that most Americans asked for. No matter what decision he makes there is always going to be a problem with it. As far as Ann, it’s her job to create separate unimportant dialogue by spewing unnecessary outrageous comments. Like Andy May says, we need not get distracted and that’s the best way to hurt people like Ann.

    Why does this woman still have a job? People like her, Rush, “W”, etc, are why I left the Republican party years ago. Right now, neither party has a real leader. They are both just flapping around, trying to be relative. (not succeeding)

    Get real. Obama has made a silly monkey of himself. He did not need Ann Coulter for that.
