Ann called for the rat poisoning of Justice Stevens during a speaking engagement at Philander Smith College Thursday. It's just all in good fun. After all-she has a great sense of humor that most great conservative thinkers have that come form the Randall Terry movement.
Ann is usually portrayed as your run of the mill conservative pundit by many in the traditional media as demonstrated by her appearance on the Today Show. (see the video )
In the past few months, Ann Coulter has been a featured guest on Hannity and Colmes and The O'Reilly factor shouting from the top of her lungs about the horrible treatment she has been getting on her speaking tour in colleges. She's reeling in big bucks doing it, (40,000.00 a pop), but those crazy liberals won't allow her to speak her mind so she cuts the time short and goes on to the question and answer segment. She has the proof that liberals are hate mongers because they openly criticize her at her stops and she flaunts the many terrible emails, catcalls, protesters and the like as her defense. It's funny then how she was so willing to publish one of her critics, Lydia Cornell's personal information on her own website which has resulted in numerous hate calls and death threats to Lydia, but hey-Coulter doesn't mind. How dare people get upset over her statements like the one following the 9/11 attacks:
"we should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity"
She lost her job at the NRO over that one.
I have to say I'm all for public flogging. One type of criminal that a public humiliation might work particularly well with are the juvenile delinquents, a lot of whom consider it a badge of honor to be sent to juvenile detention. And it might not be such a cool thing in the 'hood to be flogged publicly." - MSNBC March 22, 1997.
I think [women] should be armed but should not vote ... women have no capacity to understand how money is earned. They have a lot of ideas on how to spend it ... it's always more money on education, more money on child care, more money on day care." - Politically Incorrect, February 26, 2001
These responses probably would enrage a certain number of people, but why would the Larry King's of the world ever challenge her about them or present her views to their audience at large? Of course, Ann has a very hypocritical understanding when it's the causes she supports that are being protested and death overall. She seems to have a penchant for just bathing in it's crimson glory. I mean did you know that she just got all hot and bothered when she found the website called the Nuremberg Files." The site distributed personal information about over 200 abortion providers, including names, family members, addresses, photos and in some cases criminal and civil suit records. To understand this website you have to know the man behind it. His name is Neal Horsley and you can listen to him on Alan Colmes radio show ( listen here) where he says:
Colmes: "You had sex with animals?"
Horsley: "Absolutely. I was a fool. When you grow up on a farm in Georgia, your first girlfriend is a mule."
I think there are a lot of farmers who would disagree with old Neal, but on the web site that was created in 1997,(link) the names of abortion providers who have died are struck out and the names of those who have been injured are grayed out. Dr. Barnett Slepian is one of the doctors listed. Last fall, just hours after Slepian was shot to death by a sniper in his home, his name was struck out on the page. Horsley claims he had no prior knowledge of the event, and only crossed off the name after seeing a TV report. In light of these events, although any threats are not explicitly stated it seems reasonable that the doctors who are named on the site or on the posters feel threatened. Seven doctors performing abortions have been killed since 1977. There have been approximately 16 attempted murders, 99 acid attacks, 153 arson incidents and 39 bombings in the last two decades.

That's a pretty horrible thing to publish right? To any normal person that is. Here's Ann's defense of the site back in 2001:
People say there are a lot of kooks on the Internet, but I don't know. The anti-abortion Web site Nuremberg Files is an excellent concept.
She doesn't mind that doctors are killed and is quite giddy about it. It doesn't come as a surprise that Ann Coulter would "jokingly" wish to poison Justice Stevens.
She also said, "That's just a joke, for you in the media." That's an odd phrase to include because it's just not funny. I just had a thought. I think I'll put some rat poison on Ann's creme brulee just for a few laughs. Watch her squirm and keel over for a bit. I'm just kidding of course. We all know that Ann would never eat creme brulee-so I'm gonna have to put the rat poison in her morning stack of nicotine patches just to make sure she gets that nice early dose. I'm just kidding of course, maybe I'll...
