Does Ann Coulter make you hot?

OPINION By ROGER FREBERG

Conservative author and activist Ann Coulter will speak at Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo on Feb. 28 from 7 to 8 p.m. at the Chumash Auditorium in the University Union. The event is free and open to the public. However, tickets are required (information below).

Ann has already created quite a stir in the britches of some on the Cal Poly campus. A “flyer war” has erupted with officially approved Ann Coulter flyers being ripped down and replaced with very angry and profane alternatives that look like racist literature to me.

Somebody is going to a lot of time and expense to put up these fakes. The biggest battle ground appears to be the architecture building, long a bastion of right wing ideology. Right!  One faculty member was particularly distressed that any public funding would be used for Ann’s talk (although most of her fees are being paid privately). Public funding or no, some people just don’t think conservative voices belong on campus (or on radio or the internet or employed in academia or anywhere else, for that matter).

Just to be fair and balanced here, President Armstrong’s office has also contributed and this is a refreshing change from prior regimes.

For those of you who haven’t followed or read the works of Ann Coulter have missed some fun — she is definitely part of the American political landscape. Ann is very accomplished as an author and speaker and, yes, she has a degree or two. Her web site provides these ‘offensive’ tidbits about her life (with my observations in parentheses):

• “Ann Coulter is the author of seven New York Times bestsellers. (I am still waiting for one of our local leftist activist professors to have their first).

• She is a frequent guest on many TV shows, including The Today Show, Good Morning America, The Early Show, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Hannity, The O’Reilly Factor, The Glen Beck Show, HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher, and has been profiled in numerous publications, including TV Guide, the Guardian (UK), the New York Observer, National Journal, Harper’s Bazaar, and Elle magazine. She was the April 25, 2005 cover story of Time magazine. ( I don’t see CNN or CNBC or the Telegram Tribune and I wonder why?)

• A Connecticut native, Coulter graduated with honors from Cornell University School of Arts and Sciences, and received her J.D. from University of Michigan Law School, where she was an editor of The Michigan Law Review.” (After this, she had quite a bit of experience in practicing law, but I will leave that to your reading.)

However, it is not her accomplishments that have drawn ire from the left, but rather her uncompromising attitude over what is right and what is wrong in America. Here is one of her recent observations:

“…Oops, I take that back: Government employees who rob the elderly also can’t be fired.

The Los Angeles Times recently reported that, after a spate of burglaries at a veterans hospital in California several years ago, authorities set up video cameras to catch the perpetrators. In short order, nurse’s aide Linda Riccitelli was videotaped sneaking into the room of 93-year-old Raymond Germain as he slept, sticking her hand into his dresser drawer and stealing the bait money that had been left there.

Riccitelli was fired and a burglary prosecution initiated. A few years later, the California Personnel Board rescinded her firing and awarded her three-years back pay. The board dismissed the videotape of Riccitelli stealing the money as “circumstantial.” (The criminal prosecution was also dropped after Germain died.)”

It does appear that a few at Cal Poly really don’t want you to hear or read about things that might make you think in “unapproved” ways. They just want you to live your life according to a plan, theirs.

If you would like to attend, tickets are available to members of the public in limited quantities at the following locations: Spring Street Auto at 729 Spring St. in Paso Robles; Kokkonen Insurance and Financial Services at 1103 Johnson Ave. in San Luis Obispo and David and Zimmerman Law Offices at 227 E. Branch St. in Arroyo Grande.

I won’t say that Ann makes me hot, after all, my wife reads this. Let’s just say I admire her and leave it at that.

Roger Freberg is a San Luis Obispo resident who is using his retirement to write a culinary-inspired blog, comment on important local events and occasionally enjoy getting sued for his journalistic excellence.

“My only regret with Timothy McVeigh is he did not go to the New York Times Building.”

Ann Coulter


So she doesn’t regret that he blew up a building full of people including many children. ‘It’s’ (Coulter) only regret is that he didn’t kill more. If there is such a thing as an ‘evil’ that would be Ann Coulter.


I don’t read anything Roger writes but I did read the headline prior to knowing it was one of Roger’s crazy editorials. Point is, Roger, don’t bother responding to me, I still block out your hateful idiotic posts. I find the best way to deal with him is to ignore him.


Typoqueen

So five of you agree that McVeigh didn’t kill enough….okay then.


Sally

It is interesting when you read the posts who the real haters are.


WiseGuy

Simply fascinating!


Slowerfaster

Hilarious headline …and in answer to that:


No, I am not interested in bony transvestites, so go ahead and try to tap it, Roger. I won’t tell the wife.


WiseGuy

Yeah, Roger. If your wife doesn’t mind, give it a shot. You’ll have something fresh–sort of–to write about. For an ice-breaker you can ask Coulter if she knows what Sarah Palin’s favorite dish is, wink wink. (See story below.)


Sally

lets keep this clean and not personal


maybe not

“lets keep this clean and not personal”


Sally’ you must be new to Cal Coast News!


zaphod

warning explicit text

google ‘what is santorum’ I dare you

thank you for not staring at my adam’s apple


William

Yep, just about what one would expect: a filthy, adolescent fantasy masquerading as political humor. “Oh, you just aren’t smart enough to ‘get’ the sophisticated contrast between Coulteresque political schtick interspliced with her eager, whoring participation in gross,degrading human sexual practices.


An anonymous post slandering a public figure: this takes real cajones. Most Leftists will think this is genius. The rest of us recognize it as one-more-example of bankrupt Leftist ‘argument.’


zaphod

I didn’t mention her baseball bat! here is a partial list skimmed for your filtering pleasures want some dissonant with that cognition?


Typoqueen

He gave you a warning.


“An anonymous post slandering a public figure”


That’s rich, she says the meanest things, meaner than anyone in the Media. She makes Andrew Dice Clay and Howard Stern look like religious preachers. Give me a break, she’s no shrinking violet.


The only thing bankrupt in this discussion is the mind of anyone that would stick adam’s-apple-Ann. She’s evil and she’s fair game.


Typoqueen

oops, typo,,, stick ‘up’ for adam’s-apple-Ann. I don’t usually correct my typos, I just wanted to say that again, AAA.


William

I don’t happen to care for her style either but her views are public, they are hers and she defends them. You and most of the other Lefties around here are anonymous cheap-shot artists. Tell you what, show up for the event and have a go with her during the open-mike…


Typoqueen

I wouldn’t walk accross the street to see AAA. But I practice what I preach. I’ve been to a few tea baggings. I’ve asked questions and spoke with them. Many of them were nice but they were all brain washed or backwards thinking. I’ve always made it very clear that I was a proud bleeding heart lib that supports Obama, I thought it was fun watching their heads explode and I usually take one of my kids so they understand that they are the generation that needs to change things, so they can see what they’re up against.


I get involved using my real name but certainly not in a forum like this.


Slowerfaster

Bravo !

This is what we need more of.


You and I are among a number of fearless freedom fighters…and what we fight IS FEAR.


FEAR and IGNORANCE.


Thing is, the Reich-wingers are so extreme now because they KNOW they are on the way out. That is what they fear the most.


William

“But I practice what I preach. I’ve been to a few tea baggings. I’ve asked questions and spoke with them. Many of them were nice but they were all brain washed or backwards thinking. ”


Well, with your propensity for condescending, vulgar insult one might not be surprised if those ‘brain-washed tea-baggers’ basically have you pegged and treat you accordingly…


Slowerfaster

That’s rich. Coulter is a coward that won’t allow open questions or participate in anything close to a real debate.


I believe that I might be the very last person to confront her/him on a radio call in program. I had all of the ‘over-the -top’ comments uttered by this truly ugly and evil harpy all lined up and blasted the thing with its own words. The defense uttered by this mutant was that it was just parody …comedy.

The remarks were so violent and offensive, that I can’t mention them here. Totally unfunny, just mean and vicious invective intended to hurt and belittle ; and more than a few racist on their face words and phrases.


I challenged the stick insect to a real debate …if not with myself , then with any of a number of friends of my choosing.

Mysteriously, the connection went dead and we heard no more from ANNthrax.


So, NO, this FREAK does not defend the bile that comes out of its piehole. IT BAILS. IT RUNS AWAY !

And then it cries victim, just like so many WHINER-WINGERS prevalent here.


Sally

I hate to admit it but I think she is cute.


Slowerfaster

“lets keep this clean and not personal”. , Sally says


OK with me, but we didn’t bring this up; and it’s obvious that you are not well acquainted with the attraction and history of buggery in conservative circles.


Jay0991

The fact that you defend her by her many TV appearances and academic profile is insane. She is a racist elitist that would put this country 60 years back if she could. She is on TV because the shows want ratings. What better than to have a diarrhea mouthed crazy person spout off racist rants? She sells books the same way Limbaugh and Stern do. People either want to hear what the crazy person has to say next or they actually believe here insane rants. either way, it’s a shame the 1st amendment gives people like her the right to even talk at all.


doggin

Faculty was offended by public funds being used for Ann’s talk? Did we forget about NPR’s liberal right wing bashing agenda and how its funded by tax dollars.


WiseGuy

NPR has a long and respected reputation for reporting the TRUTH. The fact that the TRUTH ends up making conservatives look bad, and thus making them feel “bashed”, is a natural by-product of accurate and truthful reporting.


Incidentally, I was first tipped off about the the Sarah Palin HaliBUTT scene I write about below from a story on NPR, a story since corroborated elsewhere.


The bottom line is that TRUTHFUL reporting tends to make conservatives and Republicans look bad, and thus inspires conservatives and Republicans and rightwing nerds and nuts to want to “shoot the messenger.”


WiseGuy

It’s weird, perverse and certainly creepy how the popularity of Coulter and Palin are based so much on the adolescent-type sex fantasies of the male political nerd faction of the Republican Party. It’s especially sick how blatantly Coulter and Palin pander to this creep-factor.


This became particularly striking to me when I read about–true story–how Sarah Palin first wooed the right-wing media pundits when, as governor of Alaska she held a dinner for all these right wing media nerd guys, including Bill Kristol, and personally walked around the table hand serving the main entree–I kid you not– Halibut Cheeks. Going around the room, with Palin dishing up the fish and explaining that they would all now be enjoying fresh caught HaliBUTT CHEEKS gave Palin and the nerds ample opportunity to make sexual double-entendre remarks at the dinner table as Palin flirted and the sexual tension rose and immediately afterwards the pundits ended up running back to their computers and started telling our nation what a great Vice-President this (hot ass) Alaskan governor would be. And that is how Sarah Palin got her start as the Republican pin-up girl.


I am NOT making this story up.


Ann Coulter in her own way, pretty much follows the same script, somehow appealing to the weird sexual hangups and desires of male Republican political nerds. And it works, as we see so plainly in above Roger Freberg article in which he lards with absolutely unnecessary, but very revealing and repulsive sexual overtones.


srichison

Sure wish I could meet you to hear first hand about that dinner you attended in Alaska. What other first hand stories do you have?


WiseGuy

Srichison, you are a little mixed up. Re-read my comments and that may straighten you out a bit on the facts. Thanks!


Sally

I will be interesting to see what happens, no I do not agree with her and she is as crazy right as code pink is crazy left.

What will be interesting is whether they let her speak or shout her down.

I have come to the opinion that college campuses believe in free speech so long as it is promoting a leftist view.


danika

I am a conservative and THAT woman does not speak for me. She is rude, crude, and thinks she is above all others. I wouldn’t go see her if I were paid to. She is an embarrassment to her gender, her party, and writers everywhere.


Dexter

Sorry …. Even though I’m conservative thinking in may ways, listening to Coulter is like listening to the teacher sweep her fingernails across the chalk board.


Coulter loses her message by making to many inflammatory things which are really motivated in her attempt to stay relevant and make money which is rather sad.


William

Correct, so you vote with your feet by not attending.


What’s so grimly predictable, as has been pointed-out by Sally and some others here, is the Leftists’ infantile attempts to shut her down. Youtube has numerous clips of college Leftists shouting-down and charging the stage against people like Michelle Malkin and David Horowitz. “Free speech” on university campuses is reserved only for so-called Progressives.


Typoqueen

“….against people like Michelle Malkin and David Horowitz. “Free speech” on university campuses is reserved only for so-called Progressives”.


Wrong again William. Malkin and Horowitz do speak at universities, as you said the evidece is right there on Youtube, so I guess they are allowed their right to ‘free speech’. If a couple of people shout at them or throw a pie their way that’s not the point, they were still allowed to speak at those venues. They’re entitled to spew their hateful messages but a moral person would never defend these nasty people like you and Sally do.


William

Correct. When you filter-out the shout-downs, stage-charging, protesters banging on auditorium doors and the almost invariable need for increased security to protect the speakers (and ignore the vandalism and ‘disinvitations’ of course), conservative speakers are welcomed almost with open arms by our institutions of higher learning…


Typoqueen

Now you know how I feel when I go to a tea party rally. I know what to expect when I go to them and they should know what they’ll get when they spew hatred, what goes around comes around.


“And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make”..Sir Paul.

‘And in the end, the hate you take is equal to the hate you make’…Typo


William

This is filed under ‘self-referencing evidence.’


By virtually all law-enforcement accounts, Tea-Party rallies are peaceable affairs with little in the way of violence and vitriol save the shills put in place by Leftist organizations (see links). Plus, they clean-up after themselves. The so-called ‘racism’ so cavalierly thrown around by the Leftist politicians and their fellow-traveler journalist-poodles ignores 1) the numbers of black tea-party speakers and 2) conveniently defines all criticisms of Obama policies as ‘racist.’

Typoqueen

Well in one of your articles it claims that the racists were ‘planted’ but in the other it says the pictures were simply made up by the “Lamestream media” {giggle},,BTW, love that term especially when it’s with ‘errrr that was a gotcha question’. Anyway so which is it, were the planted or completely made up. It’s as Ted kept saying the other day, if it walks like a duck,,,,

They don’t get it just like you don’t get it.


The Iowa tea bags put a billboard comparing Obama to Hitler and Stalin. That wasn’t made up or planted it was paid for by the Iowa Tea Party. After a lot of public outcry they realized that they weren’t gaining favor with the public so they changed it. Why would they spend the thousands of dollars on that billboard and think is was okay to begin with, why did they have to be told that it was wrong?


During tea baggings your tea baggers have guys going around telling other baggers to put away their racist signs because they don’t want to ‘send out that message’. Why do they even attract the kind of people whose signs need hiding? Not the type of party blacks and Jews for the most part would want to partake in. Yes they have their token,,I mean there few minorities and that’s all great. But you will for the most part see a sea of white religious gun tote’n white extremist.

You might say that libs leave trash or make a mess when they rally just as the right did in 60s about the libs but the problem is, is that we have different views on what trash is. You think a burger king wrapper is trash and I agree but it can be cleaned up, I feel a hateful mind is trashier and it can’t be cleaned up. So I’ll take the libs trash any day.


It’s not a big conspiracy by the left to make them look bad, we didn’t pay for the billboard.
