Ann Coulter on the Jews.: "COULTER: Well, OK, take the Republican National Convention. People were happy. They're Christian. They're tolerant. They defend America, they — DEUTSCH: Christian — so we should be Christian? It would be better if we were all Christian? COULTER: Yes. DEUTSCH: We should all be Christian? COULTER: Yes. Would you like to come to church with me, Donny? COULTER: No, we think — we just want Jews to be perfected, as they say. DEUTSCH: Wow, you didn't really say that, did you? COULTER: Yes. That is what Christianity is. We believe the Old Testament, but ours is more like Federal Express. You have to obey laws. We know we're all sinners DEUTSCH: Welcome back to 'The Big Idea.' During the break, Ann said she wanted to explain her last comment. So I'm going to give her a chance. So you don't think that was offensive? COULTER: No. I'm sorry. It is not intended to be. I don't think you should take it that way, but that is what Christians consider themselves: perfected Jews."
Comments on what the bitch said: comment thread.
Jewish Task Force (JTF.ORG): JTF Loves You, Ann Coulter!: "Ann remarked on June 14, 2004 that self-hating left-wing Jewish billionaire George Soros is a prime example of the kind of Jew who causes anti-Semitism -"
Jon Wiener: Jews, Jesus and Republicans: Playing Ann Coulter's Game - Off The Bus on The Huffington Post: "But this time, Rutten argues, it's different. That's because Coulter's argument - that Christianity 'perfects' Judaism, and that Jews need 'perfecting' -- is the major theological underpinning of anti-Semitism (along with the notion to that the Jews killed Jesus). The Catholic church, and most Protestant denominations, have explicitly broken with that claim. The Republican candidates ought to do the same thing. 'It's a scandal that in this pluralist nation it falls to the voices of organized Jewry to make this case,' Rutten writes, 'because it is a case whose outcome is of the greatest consequence to us all. For too long we've pretended that the brutal political rhetoric that now characterizes our partisan politics can be quarantined, that it won't inevitably leach over into every other aspect of our lives.' So it would be good to ask Rudy Giuliani, Mitt Romney and their rivals: Ann Coulter is a best-selling Republican pundit; do you agree with her that the ideal America is a Christian America?
