The point of Ann Coulter getting shit on horribly and constantly at Rob Lowe’s roust. 

When you spend your entire existence being horrible and spiteful to people, well, yeah, eventually people are going to turn around and be horrible and spiteful to you. That’s how life works.

Her fake empty forced smile, though. Christ. She’s fucking mortified. She can’t defend herself…or attempt to.

But she’ll get over it. For all the right wing speech tour money and whatnot. 

This is all rather disturbing to watch.

I know people rag on Tumblr politics but like.  I was going through my old, old books and I found my collection of Ann Coulter from over a decade ago.  I was about as bad as you can get.  Tumblr, with its “discourse,” did so much over a few years to turn me from a hateful, closeminded bigot to someone far more openminded and who actively tries to do better and make the world better.

I have three points:

1. Yes, I know that tumblr discourse can be shitty as fuck but it can do so much good.

2. Never assume that people of opposite viewpoints can’t be talked around with facts, detailed debate observation, and really good conversation.

3. I actually love how I have this background because it means that I know exactly what talking points are going to be thrown out to oppose me in arguments and I am prepared. :]

After Ann Coulter referred to President Obama as a “retard” in a tweet during Monday night’s presidential debate, Special Olympics athlete and global messenger John Franklin Stephens penned her this open letter:

Dear Ann Coulter, Come on Ms. Coulter, you aren’t dumb and you aren’t shallow. So why are you continually using a word like the R-word as an insult? I’m a 30 year old man with Down syndrome who has struggled with the public’s perception that an intellectual disability means that I am dumb and shallow. I am not either of those things, but I do process information more slowly than the rest of you. In fact it has taken me all day to figure out how to respond to your use of the R-word last night. I thought first of asking whether you meant to describe the President as someone who was bullied as a child by people like you, but rose above it to find a way to succeed in life as many of my fellow Special Olympians have. Then I wondered if you meant to describe him as someone who has to struggle to be thoughtful about everything he says, as everyone else races from one snarkey sound bite to the next. Finally, I wondered if you meant to degrade him as someone who is likely to receive bad health care, live in low grade housing with very little income and still manages to see life as a wonderful gift. Because, Ms. Coulter, that is who we are – and much, much more. After I saw your tweet, I realized you just wanted to belittle the President by linking him to people like me. You assumed that people would understand and accept that being linked to someone like me is an insult and you assumed you could get away with it and still appear on TV. I have to wonder if you considered other hateful words but recoiled from the backlash. Well, Ms. Coulter, you, and society, need to learn that being compared to people like me should be considered a badge of honor. No one overcomes more than we do and still loves life so much. Come join us someday at Special Olympics. See if you can walk away with your heart unchanged.

A friend you haven’t made yet,

The other day I saw a girl in Barnes and Noble who was buying a guide to holistic medicine, a volume of Black Butler, and “In Trump We Trust” by Ann Coulter, and ever since I’ve been trying to piece together what kind of person she must be

A few years ago, the young republicans at my alma mater invited Ann Coulter to speak and were planning on using university funds to pay her speaking fee. In 24 hours the rest of the student population mobilized in protest. The president of the school (a Jesuit and badass) wrote a public and strongly worded letter asking the young republicans to rescind her invitation and donate the money to a worthier cause. In the next 24 hours she was disinvited and Fox News came and did a segment on Ann Coulter being “censored” by elitist New York college students. It was hilarious.

I wish Fox News would go a little easier on Hillary Clinton. She’s the one we want to run against.

Could you guys just back off?

Because I feel like I’m living through this, I feel like this is déjà vu again. We used to say, ‘Oh, the next president isn’t going to be a guy named Barack Hussein Obama.’

Our next president could be Sen. Bernie Sanders, if you people keep this up.
