    Absolutely Fabulist
    by Ann Coulter


    In their latest demonstration of how much they love the troops, liberals have produced yet another anti-war hoax.

    The New Republic has been running "true war" stories from a brave, anonymous liberal penning dispatches from Iraq. The famed "Baghdad Diarist" described his comrades joyfully using Bradley fighting vehicles to crush stray dogs, mocking a female whose face had been blown off by an IED, and defacing Iraqi corpses by wearing skull parts on their own heads.

    Various conservatives began questioning the plausibility of the anonymous diarist's account -- noting, for example, that Bradley vehicles don't "swerve," as the diarist claimed. The editor of The New Republic responded by attacking the skeptics' motives, complaining that some conservatives make "a living denying any bad news that emanates from Iraq."

    Sadly, I don't think many are interested in the truth about anything these days, Pastor Bob! :tear:

    Yer gonna get some hate-mail for daring to put up Coulter, here.

    But I like her. Anyone who gets their picture taken next to McCarthy's grave is OK in my book.

    I don't believe they do. I believe they are only interested in political rhetoric, aimed at the destruction of GWB, truth not needed.

    Mr

    Ann Coulter certainly never tells the truth. I'm surprised that self proclaimed Christians listen to someone as evil as she is.

    Amen!
    I also find it interesting that one writer who didn't tell the truth means that "the left" (whatever that means) isn't interested in truth, yet they love Hannity & Coulter, who make careers out of lies & misrepresentation. Oh, and let's not forget the president of "the right" who lied us into war.

    Right, all the problems in this country, nay the world would dissolve once GWB is destroyed....:laugh:

    While I don't care for Bush, and think he is one of the lousiest, if not "the" lousiest, POTUS, I am not naive enough to believe the world's problems will be solved with his demise. Do you really take everyone on the left to be mindless idiots, Hill?

    If you are not familiar with the history of how the terms of "left" and "right" came about (I suppose you only went to public schools:laugh: ) then check out this site: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Left-right_politics

    In a nutshell a liberal has two basic meanings:
    1. to give freely (the problem is its MY MONEY he wants to give away)
    2. A liberal believes you should take care of everyone except for yourself.
    therefore it is the government's job to protect people from themselves which leads to the philosophy of no self-responsibility

    ps the liberal motto is: Dont confuse me with the facts, I have made up my mind:tonofbricks:

    I know about that. I was alluding to the reference to "The Left" as if it is a monolithic group, which is nothing even close to reality. I also excelled at both public and private institutions, scoring top ten percentile on both math & language on my SATs, and graduating with a 4.0 on my undergrad degree, so thanks.

    Is this a bit of an exaggeration? Are you sure that she "never tells the truth?"

    If she embodies your understanding of evil, I would be interested to hear your opinion of Bin Laden.

    This is but the latest in an ongoing denial of the truth relative to the events in Iraq.

    Maybe if the general public would get their heads out of the sand, the public media would follow suite. Perhaps you could document a couple of "lies" and "misrepresentations" upon which these two have made their careers.

    The ludicrousy of this statement speaks for itself. Left-wing Presidential candidates agreed with the need for action in Iraq when it was in their best interest to agree.

    I guess the right isn't interested in the truth.


    Just google "hannity lies" or "coulter lies" if your head is truly that deep in the sand you mention.


    OR when they were lied to about WMD. Oh, or wait...was it to bring freedom to the Iraqi people...oh no, wasn't it to depose Saddam....no no, it was the yellow cake uranium from Africa...no wait...it was that Saddam perpetrated 9/11..oh no that wasn't it.

    Interesting how you point fingers in one direction but give a pass to the side you favor. Interesting and amazingly sad. Try opening BOTH eyes.

    As much as the right is interested in truth.

    In the minds of the warvangelicals the "left" is composed of those who dare to disagree with them.

    Though I wouldn't phrase it that way, yes, I do. They succumb to the leftist political propaganda of the day. They have been conditioned by the operatives in the far left. Outraged at GWB winning in '2000', and control of their beloved Congress, stolen from them, They have waged a war on the right wing conservative viewpoints ever since, with GWB as their main target, despite his left leanings. Repeat lies long and loud enough and the gullible in public will learn the words and sing along. So mindless idiots? No, I think I would label them ignorant and gullible.

    Just as the gullible and ignorant folks on the right swallow hook, line and sinker what is said by people such as Hannity and Coulter.
