Meet Fox News’ newest terrorism expert: Ann Coulter. She appeared on the Hannity show tonight to answer the question, as FoxNews.com put it: Suspected bomber’s widow: Did she know? Not that Coulter offered any clues as to the answer but she employed the same brand of wit and insight that led her to joke about killing Meghan McCain not long ago instead. Coulter “quipped” that the widow, Katherine Russell (an American), should have been arrested for wearing a hijab. For her next knee slapper, Coulter “wondered” whether Russell had had a clitorectomy. She must have been fresh out of murder humor.
Our newly minted terrorism expert agreed with Sean Hannity that the living bomb suspect, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, brother of Russell’s now-dead husband, should be tried as an “enemy combatant.” Coulter and Hannity concluded – without any evidence – that the result of a prosecution in the civilian justice system will be a lack of information.
Just pay no attention to the fact that Tsarnaev has already been answering questions.
Referring to the hiding place where the younger Tsarnaev was finally found and taken into custody, Coulter asked, “Why not just shoot up the boat? If we’re not going to talk to him and get any information about the cell, about any foreign influence… They should have just kept shooting. It’s hard to tell with Coulter – whose very voting record is laughable – but she seemed sincere about this particular murder fantasy.
“Investigator” Coulter had a few more insights:
I want to know about this, this wife, as well. …She ought to be in prison for wearing a hijab. This immigration policy of, you know, us assimilating immigrants into our culture isn’t really working. No, they’re assimilating us into their culture. Did she get a clitorectomy, too?
Hannity, who helped rehab Coulter over the Meghan McCain wisecrack, had no problem with this poisonous punchline. He said, without any apparent disapproval, “Well, I don’t know the answer to that. But your point is well taken in this sense… “
You can’t convince me that these guys made these bombs on their own, financed it on their own and that they didn’t have help. So that means there are other people out there and that we’re not getting the information that we need from the one that actually survived. …I’d waterboard him, myself.
But it’s funny Hannity should mention waterboarding. Because tonight is the fourth anniversary of his still-unfulfilled promise to undergo the procedure that Hannity calls “dunking” – with proceeds to benefit charity – to prove that it’s not torture.
No, not a Muslim, but one who’s actually done some of what these flamethrowers never seem to find the time for… a bit of education.
For reasons I won’t divulge, I believe she’d have no snide remarks about that.
Ann is an ignoramus … I wonder how many days it took her to learn the word clitorectomy (which is banned by Islam, BTW, but – as with Christianity, local customs may prevail).
Hannity is dishonest as well as ignorant. He once said waterboarding was NOT torture but now he says he’d do it to make the 19-year old kid talk. Yes, Visitor, even Ollie North says torture doesn’t work.
Ann and Hannity are living proof of the fact that my ancestors should have avoided helping those first settlers survive in the new world. The word “terrorists” is very fitting in their case.
Hannity: " …I’d waterboard him, myself." OMG. I don’t know whether to laugh or cry on that one.
As for Hannity, he should realize that if they water boarded Dzhokhar it would kill him with his neckband throat injuries. Not much of a torturer, is Hannity?
Goodness, Crazy Annie . . . if Katherine Russell — an American Citizen — should be in prison simply for wearing a hijab, where should Laura “Pickles” Bush be for wearing one while visiting Saudi Arabia back in 2007?
If anyone needs to wear a hijab, it’s unmarried Annie, given her numerous “adventures” with her boyfriends. One wonders if Annie is a virgin. Hmm…maybe she is the one who needs a clitorectomy.
This bitter spinster is the last person to discuss other people’s looks. Annie is thin as a broomstick. If Hannocchio truly loved this broad, he would feed her daily by taking her out to a all-you-can-eat restaurant. If a strong wind kicked up in New York City, Annie would fly away.
These two have a bond that will never be broken-not even by a dowdy housewife wearing a large diamond ring and bracelet. We are surprised she’s not wearing a hijab the way her husband treats her.
NOTE TO ANNIE
Yes or no. Should a person be arrested for voter fraud?
