Sure, it's got nothing to do with Ann Coulter. But we love this pic.
Sure, it’s got nothing to do with Ann Coulter. But we love this pic.

Pathetic rightwing outragebot Ann Coulter, like former Fox News stablemate Glenn Beck, no longer has the pull she used to in the world of wingnut media, but she still manages to lob the occasional grenade of Pure Stupid into the public discourse, like this column she wrote claiming that Khizr Khan is a terrible man for using his son’s heroic death to say Muslims are patriotic Americans just like normal people. No way, said Coulter: “If the U.S. Constitution required us to admit more than 100,000 Muslims a year — as we do — we’d already be living in Pakistan,” she says, sort of missing her own point. In a nation of 322 million people, admitting “more than” a hundred thousand Muslims a year isn’t ever going to make us Pakistan, Ms. BadAtMath.

But while she was at it, Coulter had a very important point to make about honoring America’s real heroes, who are totally NOT MUSLIMS:

Muslim troops accounted for 0.2 percent of all U.S. troop deaths in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. Southerners accounted for 38 percent of those killed in Iraq and 47 percent in Afghanistan.

What has South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley “sacrificed” compared to the families of these men? How about Nikki put their flag back up?

The Confederate flag won’t lead to thousands of dead and maimed Americans, as Muslim immigration does.

Leaving aside the raging paranoia about Muslims, we feel compelled to explain to Ann Coulter that the Confederate battle flag is not the flag of Southerners who serve in the American military. The American flag is. She may have heard of it — there are several songs about it and everything. The Confederate battle flag is the banner of one military branch of a traitorous nation that existed for fewer than five years before being destroyed by the USA. We thought Coulter understood how defeated nations should be treated — after all, she’s the one who called for the USA to “invade [Muslim] countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity.” Surely it’s not too much to insist that former Confederate states recognize they only belong to one nation? You know, the indivisible one?

Since Coulter brought it up, a reporter at a news conference Monday felt compelled to ask Gov. Haley whether she was going to comply with Coulter’s demand and return the Slavery Flag to its old place at the South Carolina statehouse. Coulter’s proposal came up just after Haley explained that while she disagreed with Donald Trump’s comments about the Khan family, she would still support him for president because Party Unity:

wistv.com – Columbia, South Carolina

When asked for her thoughts about Coulter’s slams, Haley offered the same retort she once gave Trump: “Bless her heart.”

It’s not quite enough to outweigh Haley’s continued support for Trump, but it’s a pretty good dismissal. (If you don’t speak Southern, “bless your heart” means “fuck you.”) Haley also said she’s so busy governoring that she can’t possibly be expected to agree or disagree with every dumb thing Trump says, so we imagine she won’t have any reaction to Trump’s suggestion that Hillary Clinton be shot to death with votes, either. No matter what Trump says, she supports the nominee.

Bless her heart.

    Wait a minute. Coulter has a heart? And the shopping pic, is that Southern for “No Butt Stuff”?

  • anwisok

    Well . . . she means well.

  • Me not sure

    Re. the pic : Where does one stick the pole?

    • Amy!

      You see, when a pole and a bracket love each other very much and want to run up a flag ….

      • Me not sure

        Mommy, is that you?

  • Scooby

    If you look at her percentages of Southerners killed you quickly realize that Northerners are the overwhelming majority of combat deaths, so let’s use thier flag. You good ole boys ain’t pulling your weight.

  • Jeff in the desert

    To Governor Haley: Bless your heart for supporting Trump. (translate as necessary)

    Sweet Jesus, those people in the photo are the two most hideous creatures I have ever seen, on any level.

      I always thought these “People of Walmart” pix must be lucky shots of rare occurrences. Then my parents moved to Mississippi and I was exposed to rural deep south Walmarts.

  • Lizzietish81

    Oh Anne, you’ve become a pathetic parody of yourself. Maybe you should take Henry Rollins up on his offer.

      I would take Henry up on anything he asked.

    W.R.T. that photo, I would just like to say that I am impressed with the selection of Pop Tarts at the Piggly Wiggly.

  • Logic of Color

    Better response from Governor Haley: “Who?”

  • Vegan and Tiara

    You should all be very afraid of this woman. She is very ambitious, and quite corrupt, but she comes across as a “sane, moderate” Republican. She WILL be on a national ticket by 2020, and she will get the GOP nomination if she runs for POTUS.

    • Oblios_Cap

      Highly doubtful. Her grifting has pretty much run its course.

      • Vegan and Tiara

        Oh, she’s just getting started! I can’t stand her, but I wouldn’t bet against her.

        • Oblios_Cap

          I thought you were talking about Coulter.

          • Vegan and Tiara

            Oh, god no! Coulter is too revolting even for most Republicans. Nikki Haley is a minority woman who is supported by the Tea Party, but manages to seem sane. She is a real threat in 2020.

    • Logic of Color

      She does do great podium, I”ll give her that.

      • Vegan and Tiara

        Plus she’s attractive, and she doesn’t drool on herself, and has all the “right” positions. I don’t think she’ll be brought down by a sex scandal like Mark Sanford was, and that’s the only thing I could see that would slow her down.

        • Logic of Color

          There was an affair rumor a few years back but it never went anywhere and probably wasn’t true

          • Jeff in the desert

            Let’s send in a Fox Operative.

          • Vegan and Tiara

            I remember, but there was never any proof, and probably started by Republicans who didn’t want a “raghead” as their governor.

          • Frank The Rat

            Bob Segretti/Lee Atwater/Karl Rove libelz!!!11

    • Marceline

      Hillary will throw her bony ass in a FEMA camp long before that happens.

        I hope so!

    • Gentle Robot

      Nop

      • Vegan and Tiara

        Be AFRAID!!!! Mark my words, she is going to be the savior of the GOP.

        • Gentle Robot

          The Republican base isn’t going to vote for a woman who looks like that.

          • Vegan and Tiara

            She is supported by the Tea Party, Sarah Palin endorsed her, and she won the governor’s race in one of the reddest states in the country. I’m pretty sure she appeals to the base.

          • Amy!

            All good points. How is she going to attract the demographic that is currently voting for Trump, though? Is the GOP going to walk away from them?

          • Vegan and Tiara

            I think the people who are voting for Trump are the usual assortment of idiots who vote for the GOP – racists, homophobes, the elderly, the frightened, the god botherers, hicks, hayseeds, rubes, xenophobes, etc… I think she has appealed to those people in the past, and I think she will win their primary if she decides to run. She will also appeal to the “moderates” who liked John Kasich, even though he’s batshit crazy too, he comes across as sane.

            I don’t like her at all, but I think she will appeal to quite a cross section of the usual numbnuts who vote for the GOP. I mean, FIFTY PERCENT of the country is willing to vote for these idiots, even Trump will manage to get 40% of the vote. Sigh…

  • Oblios_Cap

    I usually don’t have a lot of room to criticize the fashion choices of others, but I wouldn’t be caught dead in public dressed like those two.

    “The Confederate flag won’t lead to thousands of dead and maimed Americans…”

    Has Anne Coulter not heard of the Civil War, FFS?

    • Major_Major_Major

      It’s not in the Bible, so it didn’t REALLY happen.

    • Objectifer

      Stats vary but roughly 640,000 Americans were killed in The War of Southern Treason. Another 500,000 or so wounded, maimed, disfigured. By far the most costly war in American history.
      So fuck the fuck off, Ann.

    • VforV, I’m with Her!

      She’s pretending, also, not to know of the endless violence and abuse directed at Black people in the South under that rag for a hundred years after the civil war right up until the present day.

    • Rock Drummer

      She has. However, it’s convenient for her not to mention it…..facts and all that.

    • chicken thief

      She has and rightly attributes the blame for it on Obama – he’s so divisive!

    • WhiskeyTangoFoxtrot

      I got nothin’. Just like the nickname.

  • Why is it that tighty righties are sooooo bent on people from foreign cultures “assimilating” to American culture, yet don’t seem to think people from the former Confederate states should do them same?

  • AngryBlakGuy

    …really Nikki? I’m a “southerner” and I can rail on that shit monkey Coulter more than that. The reason “southerners” make up such a high proportion of armed forces is because shit head republicans like you refuse to educate them

    Dear Nikki, It must suck the Sun to be you or any non-drooling Republican these days. Not being really white and all must be a terrible burden for you. Yet, many of the cretins who will pull for Donald pull your lever as well.

    Will you give a full-throated denial of Donald or will you continue to gag on your own need to seek reelection in a red state white state of denial?

  • anwisok

    Also too, regarding this question: “What has South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley ‘sacrificed?’” It should be pointed out to Ms Coulter that Nikki’s husband, Michael is a Captain in the National Guard, and HAS served in Afghanistan. He may be a REMF , but he went into a war zone, and he did his job. Who has gone from YOUR family, Ms Coulter?

    • Wild Cat

      She has many proud veterans of the KKK in her family.

  • House0fTheBlueLights

    Do they actually say “I support Trump” or do they say “I will stand behind my party’s nominee” because as I’ve said repeatedly, I think they mean Mike Pence, because that’s who they think is going to be the one finishing out at the top of the ticket.

    Haley was born Nimrata Nikki Randhawa in Bamberg, South Carolina, on January 20, 1972, to an Indian Sikh family.

    I’d have to see her birth certificate before she could run for POTUS. Damn furiner.

    About that picture. It bothers me a little to make fun of these people.

        Go to my local supermarket on Sunday mornings, everyone just rolled out of bed. Completely forgot to brush their teeth, comb their hair or get dressed. Pretty sure they forgot to put on deodorant, too. I find this very discourteous.

            Of course, if you’re a woman you can’t win because the flip side to that is going straight to the market from work with a skirt and heels on. Be prepared for the cat calls.

          • Shan the Libtart

            I don’t do the skirt & heels thing any more but I always make sure I’m presentable. Never been cat-called in my grocery store, but I get a LOT of it at the little shops. At the grocery store, it’s actual pick-up attempts. DAMMIT, I’M JUST HERE FOR GROCERIES NOT DATING!!

        • Frank The Rat

          Only a bit OT, and like anything I write or say, a bit long winded but…

          During the ’60s, when there was this thing called a draft, (give me your tired, your poor, your otherwise undesirables for service in Viet Nam) we had various sessions in boot camp on “personal care” including the correct way to SHAVE, and brush one’s teeth, or tooth in some cases.

          Also, in the late ’70s I was managing a purchasing department for a mid-size corporation. I inherited a female employee a few years my senior who I had noticed during my pre-employment tour seemed a bit “unkempt”. About a week into my tenure as manager my olfactory survival forced me to take her into a private office and advise her to f’cking BATHE DAILY and INVESTIGATE DOUCHING.

          That was one of the most difficult conversations I’ve ever had, outside of some family shit. She did us the kindness of resigning the next day, WITHOUT NOTICE. I wasn’t upset about that but she bad mouthed me to a pretty good employee who gave me her resignation THE MINUTE THE NASTY ONE WAS OUT THE DOOR, also no notice.

          • Skadi

            OK, I’ve actually been in the position you describe, with a supervisor telling me I needed to bathe, so I can tell you it’s fucking humiliating. In my case, I bathed regularly but couldn’t afford the laundromat, so I washed my clothes at home in the bathtub…which didn’t really get them fresh-smelling. Trust me, it was not a good experience for her either.

            (Also, never tell someone to douche, because that actually is medically unsafe.)

          • SpideySenser

            Back at my old (and most favorite) job, we had this thing from the 90s called “Casual Friday”. There was one woman (not in my department, thank jesus h. christ) who quite simply could not understand the difference between “casual day” and “utter slob day”. She came in looking like she had just painted the ceiling of a gymnasium or else like she had just plowed the south 40.

    • Ms.MLG1979

      I hate body shaming, and I don’t want to see ANYONE in their underwear around my damn groceries.

      • OddMan

        I know, if ever there was a picture that crossed the line and deserved a little shaming this picture is damned close to it. Butt still . . . .

        • SisterArtemis

          I feel ya, Oddman…

          I think the joke of the pic works on the both body shaming level, and the inappropriate dress in public level, and the rebel flag/butt X level. Percentage of which probably varies from viewer to viewer. For me it was mostly the “what the fuck are they wearing?” issue (are those shiny bikini shorts on that guy?), and the idea of walking around the corner and seeing them as my fellow shoppers. Ew!

          Being a fat girl myself, the body shaming thing is pretty uncomfortable. And I think this pic does do its joke-making on that level; just on other levels as well.

          [p.s., did you know I can come up with FIVE, yes FIVE incorrect ways to spell “inappropriate” before succumbing to spell check and letting it fix it for me? innappropriate. inaproppriate. iniproppriate. inapproppriate. inipropriate.]

          • OddMan

            Thanks Sister,
            You spell like an engineer, I know, I are one. Much of the time my spelling is so off that spell check just chokes and says nope. I then spend 5 minutes searching dictionary sites trying to find the word, then give up and go to a thesaurus and find some other word.

      Sorry, but if you go parading around Walmart wearing only your tighty whiteys we’re going to point and laugh. A lot.

        The appearance of these individuals is 100% mockable.

    • Jen_Baker_VA

      This is not so much body shaming as it is tighty whities and a confed rag bikini yo. With the x right over the butt.

      • therblig

        i’m just thankful that they don’t seem to want pop-tarts.

    • jmhm

      Both of those people strip down better than I do. My issue is that the whole no shoes, no shirt, no service thing comes out of a desire for there to be a substantial physical barrier between the physical effluvia of the customers and food.

    • BrayingAssSez

      Yeah, but I defy you to show me that those people CAN be shamed.

    • proudgrampa

      This is not about body-shaming. It’s about COOTIES.

    • OddMan

      I will admit that I do find this picture is a stereotypical representation of what I think a Walmart shopper looks like. And that is is a piss poor choice of sartorial splendor for food shopping that would not be allowed in most places.

      It’s just I’m old and out of shape and would hate it if someone made fun of my buttugly body. But then again I would not wear that outfit in public.

      • Joshua Norton

        I think calling that getup an “outfit” is affording it way more dignity than it actually merits! It’s more along the lines of “something I threw on to escape a burning building”.

    • Hairstrike Alpha

      If you want to follow after those guys get into the produce area…well, you do you. I’m not so much body shaming as hygiene shaming here…

    • edith prickly

      I agree with you about the body shaming – but there’s also a question of being dressed appropriately for your environment. If you’re at the beach, go for it. In the grocery store – you should cover up a little more IMO. But your mileage may vary.

      • I agree. If that were a picture of them at the beach, I’d be right there with you. But in a supermarket? Not so much.

    • OddMan

      I know we make fun of and snark on anybody and everybody and everything. Lord knows those two left themselves open to derision when they left the house in that.
      Ok Ok Ok. But I don’t really . . . . Oh hell.

    • Cool_North

      There was a time when one couldn’t go shopping without shoes or a shirt on. Nothing fancy, but you know, as a matter of respect for their fellow shoppers who don’t need to see their ass crack outside of designated places, whether to admire it or to barf.

    • dshwa

      Even if he was an underwear model, wearing only tighty whities outside of the home or photoshoot is completely unacceptable.

    There is no fucking way I would shop in that grocery store.

      They don’t own a mirror.

    • Hairstrike Alpha

      Although, it would make a really good reason to adhere to a diet…looking at those people just caused me to lose my appetite.

      • SpideySenser

        Right? And as ALWAYS those kind of pics show up right at lunch time here on the east coast. Thanks a lot, Wonkette!

  • Cranky Man

    Slightly off topic, but if we can somehow blunder into $4k, Mrs. Cranky and myself have been invited to our “daughter’s” wedding in Kuwait. She, our “daughter”, is the kindest, most gentle, respectful and stiff spined person you could ask for. She hopes to raise her family here, in lovely northern Colorado.

    • Jen_Baker_VA

      gonna have to ask, why the quotes around daughter?

      • Cranky Man

        She’s not a biological child nor adopted. We were helping her and other students from the mid East with their English. We grew very fond, assisted them with some emergency situations, and now we’re all family. It’s been a real treat, as I said above, very good people.

  • BMW

    God…do we really have to start paying attention to Coulter again?

    • proudgrampa

      No. Emphatically, no.

    • Jeff in the desert

      Nope optional fodder.

    • Hairstrike Alpha

      Until Trump is destroyed….

    • Cool_North

      It’s either that, or they’ll thaw Sarah Palin from storage.

      • Speaking of SP, she’s been out of sight for a while. Not that I’m complaining but she’s usually first out of the gate to spew whatever nonsense comes into her head.

        • chicken thief

          She’s been watching the Olympics. Seriously. I follow her on the twitter machine and that’s all she’s posted lately. Since it was fer sure her main man in WI was going to get his ass handed to him by Eddie Munster.

          • Slavakitty

            Did you volunteer to keep track of her, or are you being punished?

        • therblig

          the RNC probably agreed to pay her to either stay sober or not talk about the election.

      • SisterArtemis

        “It’s either that, or they’ll thaw Sarah Palin from storage”

        Boy, that’s a real toss-up!

        But I’m going with Sarah because Tina Fey does a bitchin’ good Sarah, and who can even make a funny really work with the Coultergeist?

        • Rotisserie Teal

          Agreeed. Ann is a vile, calculating, media whore who cynically peddles hate. But she’s not stupid. Caribou Barbie is an evil idiot who’s every moronic pronouncement sounds like fingernails on a chalkboard at Dipshit University.

          And Ann at least has had the good sense not to BREED.

        • Cool_North

          Agree, far more entertaining potential.

  • Hairstrike Alpha

    I can’t even begin to parse the logic of Ann Coulter….so wait, because more Southerners died than Muslims we should put the Confederate flag back up because why now? Do we put the Nazi flag up for German-American soldiers killed? What the fuck is Adam’s Apple even getting at? (no, that’s not a trans joke- some women display the Adam’s apple).

    • Bub the Leftwing Zombie

      Few as prominently as Ann. She should see her farrier too, I think one of her Manolo Blahniks is coming loose and needs to be renailed.

  • Hairstrike Alpha

    Ann Coulter is and always will be a racist pig of a vile decomposing aardvark’s cunt.

    • proudgrampa

      Oh, come on. Tell us how you REALLY feel!

  • baconzgood

    I just want to point out having just come from Gettysburg, where they have a lot of information about the civil war, that the “stars and bars” were battle flags. The flag of the (tee-hee) “nation” looked different.

    I’m assuming that’s the cracker aisle…

        Pigly Wigly libelz!

  • WeaselPoo

    This is just the first step in Coulter’s comeback bid to make it to the cover of Time Magazine again. Sssh, you lot, let her follow her fever dream!

  • Cool_North

    Oh, that pic! I mean, I understand it’s probably Walmart, but seriously, even dueling banjos are closer to some kind of civilization!

    • Bub the Leftwing Zombie

      His shoe is untied! How can someone go out in public like that!?

  • cmd

    This must be the new GOP strategy for not denouncing Trump — see, e.g., Paul Ryan — Oops, been too busy to really hear it.

  • Callyson

    The Confederate flag won’t lead to thousands of dead and maimed Americans

    Um…

    • Skadi

      Somebody, somebody needs to respond publicly to Coulter by saying, “It did“.

      • Brendan_M

        Ken Layne’s old policy of ignoring this attention-hungry troll was a good one. Engaging with her is giving her what she craves.

  • HanBarbara

    The northern politicians and Union soldiers who most loathed the confederacy could not come up with a better way to desecrate the Confederate battle flag than the descendants of said Confederates.
    If anyone had told confederate soldiers that their idiot spawn would be wearing confederate battle flags across their naked bottoms in public places, maybe they would have given up and gone home then and there

  • bcarter3

    If that Walmart picture at the top of the page is accurate, David Vitter has gained a lot of weight since he lost the last election.

    • Jerry Noneofyourbizz

      That’s not Walmart. It’s IGA. Illinois Grocer’s Assoc.

      • bcarter3

        The store may be IGA, but the people in the picture are pure Walmart.

      • Amalga

        Independent Grocers Assoc. I think.

  • greyXstar

    Some people are trying to eat lunch! Sometimes Wonket can be most inconsiderate indeed!!

  • JohnE_o

    About that pic – so ‘X’ marks the spot?

    Also, Texan, but very much #notmyflag

  • Panika MCD

    taking bets on how long it will take some intrepid journalist to track down how many servicemen of the Muslim faith are also too Southerners.

    • Brendan_M

      The Khan family is from Virginia.

    • Catstro

      Islam is the second most common religion in NC (and the rest of the South, I think). If they figure out that a number of southern servicemen are blah AND muslin? Well, I would say that heads would ‘splode, but facts clearly don’t matter to some people.

      • Panika MCD

        we’ve got a pretty big number of muslins in TX also too and Ft. Hood had the largest number of troops committed to Iraq (second place? Ft. Wainwright in my birth/college town of Fairbanks). but referencing Ft Hood would not be good for the argument.

        • Zyxomma

          Shhh. Ann and Nikki will think they’re “taking over.”

        • jmk

          My brother was at both of those places. He loved Ft. Wainwright, despite the cold.

          You couldn’t get him to go back to Ft. Hood if you chloroformed him and shipped him there in a sack.

    calling coulter a vile, loathsome piece of dog shit would actually be a compliment, so i won’t!

      And an insult to dog s*it.

    Yeah, they may talk “Party Unity”, but once they’re in the voting booth, they’ll be voting for someone else.

    • Jerry Noneofyourbizz

      The question remains, what type of “something” was she?

  • SadDemInTex

    The stupid burns

  • loser_sneeze

    “The Confederate flag won’t lead to thousands of dead and maimed Americans”

    Uh, Ann, there are over 600,000 dead, from the Civil War alone ( not to mention Jim Crow, the clan and general white supremacist fuckery) who would like a word with you.

    • Serai 1

      Last estimate I read was well over 3,000 lynchings in the U.S.

      • dansezlajavanaise

        and another random murder by some self-described vigilante just last night.

  • gene108

    I’ve always found “bless his (or her) heart” to be more of a “if you don’t have anything nice to say about someone, don’t say anything at all” expression rather than an implicit “fuck you”.

    • SisterArtemis

      Not from the south, but among my buddies who are, it seems to kind of fill whatever “I’m blowing you off right now” gap needs fillin’

      in particular American flag ones!

  • LibreV

    The caption below that picture has everything to do with Ann Coulter so don’t kid yourself. In fact, the man to the right of the woman in the stars and bars is Ann Coulter.

  • Picabo

    I don’t recall hearing anything from Queen Derp of the Arctic since before the RNC convention, which she did not attend. Alaska being too far from Cleveland we understand. Did they finally throw her under the sled? If so, maybe they can find a way to exorcise the Coultergeist from our collective consciousness.

  • Nightcrawler

    When your “heritage” is represented by a piece of cloth designed to represent the subjugation of an entire group of people, you know you have a lame heritage.

  • alnnc

    It doesn’t matter how many people in the south, the west, or anywhere else in this country died in the war in Iraq. They are all Americans, not fighting for New York or South Carilna. In addition, while the vast majority of us share a collective grief over that loss, it pales compared to the individual grief of each family member and close friend who really knew them, particularly the parents who raised them. For Coulter to try to judge or compare that grief proves she is nothing more than vile slime.

    • edith prickly

      Unfair to vile slime.

      • alnnc

        True, but I was getting very angry and trying to close out before I broke something.

    • efoveks

      This is a woman who blamed 9/11 on the Iraqis for having done it. She is THAT stupid. I commend you on your restraint in calling her vile slime.

      • Mehmeisterjr

        How about “Bless her vile slime?” Better? Worse? About the same?

        • efoveks

          As damn near perfect as you can be on a Wednesday afternoon. I tip my hat to you, Mehmeisterjr.?

  • Iron Monkey

    Hate, not Heritage™

  • Goposaur

    You know, I can sort of get the Carville and Matalin thing, but Maher sticking his pipi into Coulter’s… whatever is all WTF? And I’m not even a big fan of Bill – it’s just gross.

    • SisterArtemis

      As if Bill Maher didn’t already irritate the fuck out of me….

    • berkeleyfarm

      Whoa, Maher is doing Coulter? Yikes.

    • Zyxomma

      I’m sure that was a joke, however often he repeated it.

  • Dr. Rrrrrobotnik

    “Bless your heart” doesn’t so much mean “fuck you” as it means “Aw, you stupid sack of shit. *head pat*” It’s much more passive aggressively hostile that way.

    • hvdv

      A friend of Texan extraction claims it means “Damn, you got fat.”

      • Dr. Rrrrrobotnik

        Well, bless his heart.

        And I always figured that when you see someone and don’t say “You look great!” means “Damn, you got fat.”

        • Miss Anthrope

          I second your interpretation of BYH, but I thought ‘My, you’re looking well!’ was the official code for damn you got fat?
          The subtle shadings of the Southern conversational insult are truly delightful. :P

        • hvdv

          Southern manners are complicated and multi-faceted..

    • M Dubs

      I’m not a Southerner, but I’ve always taken it to mean, “There’s nothing I can do to fix you, and I’m not inclined to try in either case.”

  • malsperanza

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but didn’t the Confederate flag “lead to thousands of dead and maimed Americans”?

    History, so confusing.

    • Lambsendbeds

      Wasn’t it more like “hundreds of thousands”?

      • HanBarbara

        About 705,000-900,000, on both sides, including civilians and depending how you count them. More died of disease than on the battlefield.

  • CATMAN

    As with all of her recent output of verbal spooge, Annie is just desperately trying to be relevant again and get the wackjobs to buy her books

  • HanBarbara

    If you are going to show respect for a Civil War battle flag, here is one every American should honor. And it’s beautiful, too.
    The Union Army Irish Brigade was mostly made up of immigrants who took the worst jobs and were looked down on by most Americans. They were right at the front lines in some of the fiercest fighting in the Civil war, and their casualty rate ( dead and wounded) was close to 100%. I don’t think you’ll see anyone wearing this flag as a bathing suit

    • Jen

      Where can I find out more about this Irish Brigade—my great great grandfather was an Irish immigrant who died at Gettysburg.

  • Craig

    Ann Coulter is one vile hag.

    • phoenix00

      one amongst many, I’m afraid.

  • Carney3

    If the South was a nation, how could it have been traitorous? Whom would it have been traitorous to? Itself? Impossible. The USA? Then it wasn’t a nation.

  • JParkerSD46

    Coulter and the other right-wing lunatics are always talking about how they love the Constitution, the US of A, and Jeebus. Why is it, then, that so many of their words and actions are so extremely opposed the the very things they say they love? Maybe she’d like to change the words on the Statue of Liberty: “Hey foreigns, go the fuck back where you came from and take anyone who isn’t white and rich with you.” Has a nice ring to it, no?
