Rahm Emanuel to Republicans: Does Ann Coulter Speak for You?
Posted on Jun 9, 2006
We usually don’t like drawing attention to the hateful Coulter, but Rep. Emanuel’s condemnation of the arch-conservative pundit shouldn’t be missed.
Rahm Emanuel via Crooks and Liars:
That doesn’t matter to Ms. Coulter because she’s doing it to enrich herself. But there is something more sinister in Ms. Coulter’s words: The hate she spews is the same kind of hatred we’re battling in the war on terror. As a country of thought and reason, I urge all of us to reject it. I must ask my colleagues on the other side of the aisle: Does Ann Coulter speak for you when
she suggests poisoning [..] Supreme Court Justices or slanders the 9/11 windows?widows? If not, speak now. Your silence allows her to be your spokesman. She should apologize to all of us who’ve lost our fellow citizens [unintelligible]
