Conservative shill Ann Coulter appeared on Sean Hannity's Fox News show Thursday night completely out of her mind over a local New York newspaper's decision to publish the names and addresses of local gun permit holders.
The controversial move received a ton of backlash from many critics. One blogger responded by publishing the name and addresses of Journal News staffers. The paper hired armed security guards after receiving threatening messages, and a suspicious envelope containing an white powder that was later determined not to be a threat.
Coulter's rant went all over the map, and in just a matter of minutes.
First, she argued that public records of gun permit holders should not be available because "people with gun permits by definition do not have criminal records." Then she began demanding various lists of things including "recently-paroled criminals," rent-controlled apartments, and women who have had abortions.
"Why can't we get a record of women who have had abortions? They get money from Planned Parenthood, they get money from Medicare and Medicaid, much of these are tax subsidies. I think mothers might want to know what other women on their street might be willing to murder a child."
"How about a list of the rent-controlled apartments in New York? And by the way, if we're producing lists of gun permit owners, I want 'em for Manhattan! I want to know how many rich liberals with their bodyguards have gun permits."
Then Coulter demanded the names and addresses of the armed guards at the Journal News who were hired after the paper received what Coulter mocked as, "Ooooh some mean emails!" Then she bounced back to the bodyguard "issue" and said that if there is tighter gun control in the future, people who make $200,000 or more should not be allowed to hire armed bodyguards and should be as "defenseless as the rest of us."
She then compared gun control advocates to "hysterical women" who "refuse to go after criminals."
"They will not do anything about manifestly crazy people—no, no, no—we have to let them walk the streets of Manhattan, defecate in the street, you have the ACLU defending crazy people. All of these shoot-ups, this precious protection for obviously mentally-disturbed individuals, there is certainly no effort to reduce single-motherhood, something that is also a contributing factor in many of these cases. In New York City, you can't take a subway without somebody getting pushed onto the tracks by mentally disturbed individuals. And liberals won't let us go after the criminals, no they specifically go out and try to harm people who by definition do not have criminal records so that their guns can be stolen by criminals!"
How did she wrap up her insane, hate-filled diatribe? She suggested that the New York Times be shut down. Why? Who the hell knows.
