Demand House Republicans Denounce Ann Coulter's Hate-Speech
As Rep. Rahm
Emanuel (D-IL), chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign
Committee, said on the House floor recently, we are blessed with
many freedoms, and among those is the right to freely speak our
minds. While Freedom of Speech is one of the principles that
makes our country great, it also means we have to endure hate filled
rhetoric, like what was recently used by Ann Coulter.
In her new book,
the princess of the Right slanders the 9/11 widows, writing:
"These broads are millionaires, lionized on TV and in
articles about them, reveling in their status as celebrities and
stalked by grief parrazies. I have never seen people enjoying
their husband's death so much."
Ann Coulter has the right to speak of hate, but we also have a right to know whether our politicians stand by these hate filled comments. And right now there's a deafening silence from the Republican side, and their silence is allowing her to be their spokesperson.

I am writing today to ask that you ask all House Republicans to denounce Ann Coulter because their silence encourages her. In her new book, Ann Coulter slanders the 9/11 widows, by writing: “These broads are millionaires, lionized on TV and in articles about them, reveling in their status as celebrities and stalked by grief parrazies. I have never seen people enjoying their husband’s death so much.”
Lest Ms. Coulter forget, more than 3,000 Americans died and thousands of children lost their parents simply because they lived in the United States. That doesn't matter to Ms. Coulter because she's saying these things 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. We are a country of thought and reason.
We must all reject her hate filled words. I ask that you ask your fellow House Republicans if she speaks for them.
