I've read a lot of nonsense in my life, but this is just about the nadir of paranoid ridiculousness.

Who is going to stop this woman ????

" I promise you: No American whose great-grandfather was born here is watching soccer."


Coulter: Any growing interest in soccer a sign of nation's moral decay

I think the real sign of the nations moral decay is the fact there are very few Family Guy clips having to do with Ann Coulter on youtube.


Its probably not the nations morality at fault on that.

Since the cessation of their usefulness is imminent, may I appropriate your belongings?

It reads like satire like the rest of her drivel.

She very well may be a troll but there are people that think like that. And its a very dangerous way to think.

I'm not familiar to this lady, so... is that bona fide satire or just a case of Poe's law?

I think it's the second, as satire always haves a counterpoint which is the actual point of the satire, and that article just looks... serious.

In which case I recommend that lady to stop a ball with her head after a professional football player kicks it from half the field away, without a helmet. And then she can explain us how "wimpy" does that feel.

Q: Should we be worried? A: Nope. (...) Worry a lot if Fozzie, Masterplan, Rise, Veritas, Bettik, Ytterbium, Scarpia, Arrow, or even Greyscale leaves. Worry a little if Punkturis, karkur, SoniClover, Affinity, Goliath, or Xhagen leaves.

Nope.

She's dead serious. For years.

For the record, my great granfather was born here and I watch soccer.

She would be horrified to know that instead of turkey and dressing for Thanksgiving, my mother always made German Sauerbraten. Every year.

I forget when I stopped reading, but it was about the time I realized this woman is either a brilliant troll or the next Glenn Beck. Her bullet points became progressively ridiculous and mockable and I just lost interest because sadly, she will be championed for this opinion by a vocal minority of the country and amplified through biased networks.

There's not much I can say. Anyone with half a brain and an ego that's not too big to accept another well known sport that is undeniably bigger than anything here in the states is on the same level as American Football should gloss over this article.

I love American Football. Love it. I call it Football and I don't care that the rest of the world mocks me for it and refers to it as hand egg. I don't like Soccer, or Futbol. My reasons are pretty good actually. I like the drama and suspense occurring between every play in baseball and every down in football. I like the strategies coming out of the dugouts and sidelines, there is a whole 'nother level going on besides what the players are doing on the field. I am not a fan of constant in motion sports like Soccer, Basketball and Tennis and the like. But THAT'S JUST ME. That is what I like and dislike and I laid out my reasons for it.

It has nothing to do with where the sport was born or my ethnicity. Personally, I think Miss Coulter would be surprised to find out the types of people who watch soccer, but she probably didn't bother to look because it might disagree with her theories and arguments about the direction our country is taking. In fact, it seems she views soccer as a sissy sport. While I wouldn't dare compare it to contact football, her aggressive stance on the issue seems to suggest our society should be writhing with bare chested vikings beating their chests with spiked maces for fun, or perhaps we should just bring back the roman gladiators. I love the violence of contact football but dear lord don't paint our society as barbarians please.....

You make a valid point, good Sir or Madam.

I've always thought that American, of all people, would appreciate the egalitarian spirit of football: it requires no special equipment (bats, gloves, helmets...) and no special playfield. It only takes, literally, one football.

This is why a guy can be born in a slump in a third world country and become a world famous idol just by being one of the best.

Wow.

She really knows how to push buttons- it'd be admirable, if she wasn't insulting the world's biggest sport to do it.

What an attention hag What?

For clarity, please refer to it as soccer. Football to every American reading this means our violent sport.

I wasn't sure for a bit which one you meant. Thanks.


ed: Football is a great name for the European version for obvious reasons.

I'm not sure why the American sport is called football though. The ball is only occasionally kicked, and is pretty much tossed around....using the hands.

But handball is already taken, so what's to do ??

It's, "Ann Coulter's Unbelievable RANT Against [INSERT SUBJECT]." She's a ranting machine! What ever you do it will not stop!

EDIT:

Never have had her finish a thought(If that is what you could call it.) without turning her off.

I'm going to stick with the fact that the football is nearly a foot long. Smile

Thank you, Krixtal, next time I get the question why the rest of the world hates America so much, I'll point them to this article and explain this is why. America is the only nation on Planet Earth where ignorance is socially accepted together with batshit insanity, sputtered by the likes of this woman.

Ann Coulter is kind of scary. When she speaks, she looks like an intelligent, serious person, not like a Sarah Palin or Rush Limbaugh. But all of this vicious hardhat rhetoric is coming out of her mouth. Anyway, anybody have any naked Ann Coulter pictures to share?

meh yeah she has a long history of it, it's her shtick. She's also a RINO, backs RINO's, which means I don't care about whatever she has to say, which is usually pretty senseless in the scheme of things. She's into shock and attention whoring, then injects her RINO views.

Anyway, what's soccer or futball, Gandalf? Oh that roundball game thingy? Yeah we pref tactical thinking games here mostly, pause-play-pause-play etc. So the comments will only be a blip here, we don't care.

I'm in it for the money

She's a 'bomb thrower' and gets paid to be on talk shows to do it.

She is a professional troll from the American neo-con right. The professional trolls from the neo-liberal American left, will now dutifully whine and complain. They will mutually raise the profile and attention whoring of one another for the purpose of disseminating a narrow world view to the sheep.

And she's broadcast on TV for several hours each day. Certain folks just adore her.

The "european version" of American football it's called rugby, and it's played by real men who don't armor themselves like sissies. P

Whereas football is football. Cool
