NJ assemblywomen call for boycott of new Coulter book

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Commentator Ann Coulter's incendiary words about outspoken 9/11 widows have led two state lawmakers to calls for a boycott of her book in the widows' home state of New Jersey.

Assemblywomen Joan M. Quigley, D-Hudson, and Linda Stender, D-Union, on Thursday called on New Jerseyans to stop buying the book, "Godless: The Church of Liberalism," and for retailers in the state to stop selling it.

"Coulter's vicious characterizations and remarks are motivated by greed and her desire to sell books. By making these claims, she proved herself worse than those she is attempting to vilify — she is a leach trying to turn a profit off perverting the suffering of others," the two assemblywomen said in a statement.

Ignoring for a moment that the press release has a glaring misspelling, these two dimwits HAVE JUST PROVEN THE POINT ANN WAS MAKING IN HER BOOK.

The "Jersey Girls", the 4 widows she's talking about (NOTE: not ALL the 9/11 widows, just the famewhores), have put themselves out there in the public arena, and, as such, should be treated as anyone else in the public eye.

But as soon as any criticism is leveled at them, they hide behind their "victimhood shield" – they make whatever ridiculous statements they (and their publicists) concoct, then put up the shield and they're protected.

Now, members of the "Bush-is-hitler!They're-eavesdropping-on-our-phonecalls!Our-rights-are-being-trampled!Whatever-happened-to-free-speech!" party are calling for BANNING A BOOK.  Got that?  I'll say it again: They're calling for BANNING. A. BOOK.

What morons.

From Different River:

Dismantle the Military!

— Different River @ 5:03 pm

The San Francisco Board of Supervisors is considering banning Junior ROTC from San Francisco high schools because they think the military is “discriminatory.” And oh, yes, for one other reason as well:

Supporters such as [sophmore student Timothy] Twyman say the program helps students develop self-confidence and prepare for the working world, while opponents counter that it’s just an easy way for the military to get a foothold in public schools and encourage teens to enlist after they graduate.

[snip]

And one Supervisor has an even more, um, interesting reason for wanted to get rid of JROTC:

In February, Supervisor Gerardo Sandoval appeared on Fox’s “Hannity and Colmes” show and said, “The United States should not have a military. All in all, we would be in much, much, much better shape.”

Really??? We'd be in much better shape, Supervisor Sandoval? Why don't you extract your head from your a&& and face reality:

THIS IS WHAT WE'RE FIGHTING AGAINST.  People (and I use that term loosely, here) who dress their kids as suicide bombers for entertainment.  And you want us to dismantle the military?  Why?  Do you think the whole world will suddenly become a peaceful and loving place once the big, bad U.S. of A is disarmed?  That we'll all get together like the old Coke commercials, and "teach the world to sing?"

Tell you what – why don't you go over there and whine about disarming, ok? 'Cause I think we'd be in much, much better shape without you.

I am astounded at the stupidity of some people.  Do they have to remind themselves to breathe? 

I'm gonna go into the tin-foil hat business.  I could probably retire in a week.

Watch and listen for yourself: Penn and Teller call Bull**** on factually unsound 9/11 conspiracy claims.
