Loose Lips: Ann Coulter Causes Riot With Stupid Comment

We here at The Frisky try to avoid Ann Coulter on the theory that if you ignore it, it will go away. But every now and then she says something so ridiculous that we just can’t keep quiet about it. Recently, she’s been saying that Muslims shouldn’t be allowed on airplanes. Instead, she says they should take “flying carpets.” At the University of Ottawa on Monday night, a Muslim student stood up and challenged her on this. Ann’s response to her? “So take a camel.” The audience began to boo. The next evening, when a second appearance was scheduled, a massive number of student protesters showed up and school officials decided to cancel the event. Here’s a look back at some other insane things Ann Coulter has said. On healthcare:

“I might be in favor of national healthcare if it required all Democrats to get their heads examined.” [Brainy Quote]

On women’s suffrage:

“If we took away women’s right to vote, we’d never have to worry about another Democrat president. It’s kind of a pipe dream, it’s a personal fantasy of mine, but I don’t think it’s going to happen.” [About.com]

On immigration:

“If we’re so cruel to minorities, why do they keep coming here? Why aren’t they sneaking across the Mexican border to make their way to the Taliban?” [Brainy Quote]

On the murder of George Tiller:

“I don’t really like to think of it as a murder. It was terminating Tiller in the 203rd trimester. I am personally opposed to shooting abortionists, but I don’t want to impose my moral values on others.” [Jezebel]

On taxes:

“Taxes are like abortion, and not just because both are grotesque procedures supported by Democrats.” [Brainy Quote]

On Democrats:

“Liberals love America like O.J. loved Nicole.” [About.com]

On the Middle East:

“I think the government should be spying on all Arabs, engaging in torture as a televised spectator sport, dropping daisy cutters wantonly throughout the Middle East and sending liberals to Guantanamo.” [About.com]

On Barack Obama:

“I do think anyone named B. Hussein Obama should avoid using ‘hijack’ and ‘religion’ in the same sentence.” [Media Matters]

On MoBama:

“[Michelle’s] obvious imitation of Jackie O’s style—the flipped-under hair, the sleeveless A-line dresses, the short strands of fake pearls—would have been laughable if done by anyone other than a media-designated saint.” [Montreal Gazette]
