Ann Coulter Says It’s Time For The Right Wing To Target President Obama’s Children

Desperation and hate. Only these two emotions could cause the right-wing to begin targeting the children of President Barack Obama. But that’s exactly what conservative banshee Ann Coulter wants to do. During an appearance with Sean Hannity on Fox News on Wednesday night, Coulter called on her rabid conservative followers to start targeting Sasha and Malia Obama because according to her, liberals attack the children of conservative candidates.

After Hannity once again tried to harangue liberals for attacking Rush Limbaugh for calling Sandra Fluke a “slut” during his radio show, Coulter launched into her own tirade and then turned into an entirely different and dangerous direction, bringing up David Letterman’s joke about Bristol Palin in 2009.

COULTER: “Coming from people who are constantly telling us about their abortions and their vaginas, no, I find it very hard to believe that they’re so upset about any word Rush Limbaugh uses. I don’t really care what words people use. I don’t care about dirty jokes, sexist jokes, racist jokes etcetera, etcetera. All I care about is that they be funny. And I would like to hold a little seminar for certain individuals like David Letterman’s writers to explain what is funny and what isn’t.”


HANNITY: “I don’t think that it’s ever funny to make fun of — like your buddy [Bill] Maher did — the children of Rick Santorum or Gov. Palin in the manner he did.”

COULTER: “That’s right, and they do go after the children. I just say that going after the children generally ought to be off limits. It has not been off limits for Republicans, though, conservatives have taken the Obama children off limits. So maybe it’s time to start imitating liberals in another way and go after the Obama children. By the way, that has been done grotesquely and viciously over the years by the left.”

Like nails on a chalkboard, Ann Coulter just makes you cringe. I’m confused about how Coulter can counter liberal attacks on Limbaugh for making a derogatory remark about an adult woman by calling on conservatives to attack President Obama’s little girls. And to justify this, she also brought up David Letterman, who unlike Limbaugh IS a real comedian. As I’ve said before, Limbaugh isn’t a comedian, he’s just a punchline, but Letterman is a comedian who made a joke about Bristol Palin, who by the way was no longer a child when the joke was made. And her personal life had already been paraded in the public eye by her mother Sarah Palin. So it’s not exactly the same. The Obama girls on the other hand, are NOT adults. They are young girls who are not paraded in front the media by their parents. And last time I checked, President Obama has never gone after the children of his political opponents. He has always avoided talking about the kids of political foes. Why? Because he is an adult who doesn’t operate under the sick rules that Ann Coulter operates under. She and other conservatives are so desperate to destroy the man they hate that they are now willing to target his children as part of their deranged strategy. These conservatives can’t possibly get much lower, though I wouldn’t be surprised if they did.
