Her recent media appearances reveal her for what she truly is: a celebrity provocateur who at her core represents nothing and nobody – except for herself and her prosperity.
Oct. 16, 2007 – Geneva (apj.us) – There has been considerable discussion, hand-wringing, and criticism in both the mainstream media and on the Internet about Ann Coulter's appearance on CNBC's "The Big Idea With Danny Deutsch" earlier this month.
Coulter made anti-Semitic comments during her appearance to ostensibly promote her latest trash book.
Deutsch asked Coulter if "[I]t would be better if we were all Christian," and she answered, "Yes."
"We should all be Christian?" Deutsch repeated.
"Yes," Coulter responded, asking Deutsch, who is Jewish, if he would like to "come to church with me."
But Deutsch, to his credit, put Coulter on the spot, asking, "We should just throw Judaism away and we should all be Christians?" She replied "Yeah."
Coulter did not respond directly to Deutsch assertion that she was an anti-Semite by remarking, "That is what Christians consider themselves: perfected Jews." Here is the full transcript of their conversation:
Deutsch: Let me ask you a question. We're going to get off strengths and weakness for a second. If you had your way, and all of your — forget that any of them —
Coulter: I like this.

Coulter: UMMMMM (pause) … It would look like New York City during the Republican National Convention. In fact, that's what I think heaven is going to look like.
Deutsch: And what did that look like?
Coulter: Happy, joyful Republicans in the greatest city in the world.
Deutsch: No, no, no, no, but I'm talking about this country. You don't want to make this country — it's not about Republicans. I'm saying, what would the fabric of this country look like? Forget that the Republicans would be running the show.
Coulter: Well, everyone would root for America, the Democratic Party would look like Joe Lieberman, the Republican Party would look like Duncan Hunter —
Deutsch: No, no, no, I don't want — I'm not talking about politically the landscape. What would our — would we be safer? Would people be happier? Would they be more…
Coulter: We would be a lot safer.
Deutsch: Would there be more tolerance? Would there be — would women be happier, would the races get along better? The Ann Coulter subscription — prescription. What — tell me what would be different in our fabric of country, because —
Coulter: Well, all of those things.
Deutsch: I can give — I can give you an argument there would be more divisiveness, that there would be more hate —
Coulter: Oh, no.
Deutsch: That there would be a bigger difference between the rich and the poor, a lot of other — tell me what — why this would be a better world? Let's give you — I'm going to give you — say this is your show.
Coulter: Well, OK, take the Republican National Convention. People were happy. They're Christian. They're tolerant. They defend America, they —
