" Slash-and-burn columnist Ann Coulter shocked a cable TV talk-show audience Monday when she declared that Jews need to be "perfected" by becoming Christians, and that America would be better off if everyone were Christian."
And after reading the entire interview she still comes off as a completely rabid close minded shrew. Mind you I think its mostly an act, calculated to get her attention and sell books, but either way I find her despicable as a person.

Quoting PA110 (Reply 6): She's still a loud-mouth attention-seeking hag who would rather toss out provocative little verbal bombs than think through her wording a bit more carefully, and make her point more intelligently.
100% agree. But, she does clarify her position in that a large number of christians consider Christianity to be the evolution of Judiasm. She's a loud mouthed crack whore, but I don't think she's saying something that isn't supported by other members of the Christian faith.

I wonder how long it will take for her to self-destruct, career-wise. I guess everyone is so used to her saying outlandish stuff nobody really cares, they just wait for the next episode. Kinda like those people who can't wait for Britney Spears to show up without panties again or do something else scandalous.
But as is often the case, what she said has an element of truth to it. It is evident that a monocultural society will be "better", inasfar as there is less violence and antagonism, as you are less likely to disagree with someone who has the same background as you. It is one of the guiding principles that Marx put forward - that communist society had to iron out all cultural and social differences, without exception. But such a society would be rather sterile and boring as well.
Multiculturalism run amok would lead to chaos and a complete fragmentation of society (such as the takeover of South Texas by Mexican immigrants, and all the resentment that has caused). So the balance is to take enough of multiculturalism to keep things growing and interesting and to avoid stagnation, while still maintaining a certain level of social unity to maintain peace.
Read it. I used to think that Ann Coulter was just a character portraying a schtik to rile people up and sell books. Now, I think she would actually be offended by someone using a yiddish word to describe her actions.
I'm sorry, but that WAS anti-semetic. Ann Coulter IS off her noggin, or worse, a bigot.
Look folks, the source of this article was FOX NEWS. Even FOX is slamming Coulter now. I think it's time for her to crawl back under the rock from whence she came.

Do you really think so? History would suggest otherwise. Witness all those countless civil wars in the almost completely monocultural Japan, for instance.
As for Jews, they're one of the most solid pillars of American society, and have always been great contributors to every country they ever settled in. They should definitely not be pressed into the same mold as everyone. If anything, they should be a role model with their culture of hard work, self-reliance, solidarity, non-proselytizing, and emphasis on education.
Christians = an improvement on Jews? Gimme a break.

The fact that it apparently hasn't happened yet is worrying.

I hope this latest speaking of her perversely reasoned and deranged thoughts gets the wrath of every Jewish organization and person in the world. She insulted every Jewish person in the world as well as that entire faith. I hope that she is banned forever from ever being on the air again TV and radio as well as her book publishers rip up her contracts. Maybe if we are so lucky, she will get hit by a bus on her way home in NY City. Yes, their is free speech, but there is responsibility with speech and she has that of a 2 year old. Seems like she was born about 70 years too late to join the Nazis. I hope this is the final bye-bye to Asshole Ann.
Unfortunately, one reason many ultra-conservatives, especially Fundamentalists, support Israel isn't to prop up Israel, per se, but to fufill, in their own warped way, what they see as the Armageddon, and the end of the world. They simply want to use Israel as a tool to bring the world to an end.
Then there are those like Axis Annie, who use them as fodder for religious intolerance. I care for neither.
