shutterstock_5457793It’s been a few months since I’ve had the urge to tell Ann Coulter to shut the hell up. This is only due to the fact that I have read exactly zero news stories about her until today. Every time this woman opens her mouth, vile stupidity emerges.

This time she is ranting about gun control. Well, sort of. It starts with gun control, then moves to rent controlled apartments, abortion, celebrities and their bodyguards, and crazy people wandering the subway system of New York. She was so riled up I was hoping the climax of the video would be a stroke.  Alas – no luck.

Her rant was a response to the ongoing discussion about releasing the names and addresses of gun owners. She’s obviously against that. But she goes on to make statements and parallels that make absolutely no sense, whatsoever.

Why aren’t we getting names of recently paroled criminals? People with gun permits, by definition, do not have criminal records. Why can’t we get the criminal records? No, you can’t get that.

Um, yes you can. Criminal records are accessible to the public. Anyone can search for them.

She really out does herself with her next rant, though:

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.

Wow. So making a decision about your own body and reproductive future is akin to murdering a child? You are a moron. Does anyone even understand why this woman is still talking? Why is anyone asking her about anything? She makes her own party look bad. I have to believe that Republicans are not as crazy as this woman. I’m not even sure why right-wing news media outlets like Fox News even give her a platform to spew this nonsense.

How dare you imply that women who exercise their right to choose are in the same category as some maniac wielding a semi-automatic rifle and killing children. Even you can’t believe that makes any sense. Can you? Are you really this vile, or is this all a ploy to sell books?

I am very pro-gun control, and I’m not even sure about how I feel about releasing the names and addresses of gun owners to the public. But I’m not going to use the issue to push every single belief I have about every single hot-bed political issue out there.

Get a grip, Ann.
