Ann Coulter blames soccer for Americas 'moral decay'

The headline says it all really.

Ann Coulter, the bonkers blonde who poses as a 'journalist' has lashed out at the world game, and pretty much blames it's rising popularity on those pesky immigrants. But I digress, over to you Ann:


“Any growing interest in soccer can only be a sign of the nation’s moral decay”


Don't worry, it gets better (or worse). Ann miraculously manages to link football to the guillotine in a statement that is either the worst satire in history or the worst segue in history, or the result of a few too many chardonnays. Maybe it's all three.


“Soccer is like the metric system, which liberals also adore because it’s European. Naturally, the metric system emerged from the French Revolution, during the brief intervals when they weren’t committing mass murder by guillotine”


It seems that if you give Ann a meter, she'll take a kilometer. And as we approach full time, Ann runs with the ball and scores an own goal with this statement:


If more ‘Americans’ are watching soccer today, it’s only because of the demographic switch effected by Teddy Kennedy’s 1965 immigration law,” Ms Coulter says. “I promise you: No American whose great-grandfather was born here is watching soccer. One can only hope that, in addition to learning English, these new Americans will drop their soccer fetish with time.”

And I thought my rants were nuts- I'm not too familiar with her work and now I know why. A red card for Ann.

America doesn't love soccer.
We love winning in soccer.

Here's a link to the original column:

If you read it in it's entirety, it becomes even more ridiculous than you already presented. Gave me a good laugh any way

I think that was the point "A good laugh". Ann Coulter might be a lot of things but stupid isn't one of them. You may not agree with her political views, and I am not defending her, but this is tongue and cheek.

This video shows just how ignorant Coulter really is she doesn't have a clue.

What astonishes me is how conservatives will defend other conservatives, knowing full well how stupid the comment was.

Another case of partisan ideology getting in the way of common sense!

I think she just wants attention,
she isn't crazy,
she just knows the best way to get attention is to say something outrageous/stupid.

I'd be more inclined to blame reality TV and an entitlement society .....

Soccer is the European retaliation for "trick or treat".
You call off the teenagers wandering the streets and knocking on doors, and we'll call off David Beckham.

I swear the reaction to Coulter's column is telling. Did anyone actually read it? She DID NOT "blame Soccer for America's moral decay." She said soccer was representative of America's moral decay, a symptom, not a cause.


Any growing interest in soccer can only be a sign of the nation's moral decay.
Read the column here.

And anyone who takes Coulter's columns as serious needs to have their head examined. She's tongue-in-cheek the whole way, but the humor-impaired have a heart attack every time they mis-interpret yet again what she is saying.

And I thought I was the only one who go it, there is way too much hate going on today by the left.
