Fake outrage is the pixie dust of the internet!

I just had to stop in and comment with a question.

How is someone saying mean things at a roast a 9 page worthy topic?

Don't go all SJW with this, that's what Liberals do. It's a roast, this is common. The roasters attack eachother brutally, then attack the person they are roasting.

Couldn't have happened to a more deserving target. I'm sure Ann hears a lot worse than that - when ever she calls home. Why in the world would Hillary have to disavow anything said at a comedy roast? The GOP supporters are really getting desperate in their attempts to pin anything they can on her. Sad. Childish. Misguided. Coulter is almost universally despised, except by the Breitbart, PrisonPlanet, Drudge, FOX'NEWS' crowd - people who aren't exactly known for their sense of humor, (except when it come to presidential candidates, that is...).

Because The People are impotent, politically, and only have manufactured outrage to use as a weapon in light of their impotence?

Was Ann Coulter at The Roast? If She was not at the roast this is very disrespectful ignorance not understanding what comedy is all about.
Your suppose to laugh with people not at people.
Sounds to me they where laughing at her instead of with her,because to many jokes aimed at her when the roast is not about her.

Artists have a bigger heart but a smaller brain. Wealthy artists have a small heart and a small brain. So obviously given the chance, they will attack someone they don't like because they cannot understand others with their puny ignorant brains. In general of course.

I have great disdain for celebrities. I don't even like people who LOOK like celebrities. I'm always hearing "celebrity x is hot" and I think to myself... gross, no thanks. I cannot find myself attracted to people with small hearts and small brains even when they have physical beauty.

She was on the dais. That is what you do when you are on the dais....share the roast with everyone. Everyone gets made fun of, the guest of honor just gets an extra joke or 2.

Seriously....does no one not know how a roast works?

Comedy Central and Ann Coulter both knew what they were doing when they put her up there. With Rob Lowe (who everyone pretty much loves). Someone had to be the lightning rod. Ann Coulter's a big girl....and she knows how to play rough. Given that politics is all just a stage show anyway, she's pretty well versed at how this whole thing works.

 


My best advice to the world at large: if media is telling you to be outraged, don't. Quit being puppets.

That's true to an extent except that Ann Coulter is one of the most heartless, insensitive nasty people on the planet. It's like getting upset because someone insulted jared fogle or Kim Jong-un. Some people deserve what they get.

We all know how a roast works.

We're just saying this is a new low.

Just because you've been conditioned to think this is ok.. doesn't mean it is.
I frankly don't give a ratts about the target, it's what happens afterwards and the bar it sets for further interaction.

Ripple effect.. and it's been going on for a time now.. someone goes lower.. we all follow them down cheering all the way.

"THAT" is the problem.. not the event, not the target..

They haven't moved the damn bar any lower than where Coulter took it in the first place:




"My only regret with Timothy McVeigh is he did not go to the New York Times Building."

I am personally opposed to shooting abortionists, but I don't want to impose my moral values on others."

"I think the government should be spying on all Arabs, engaging in torture as a televised spectator sport, dropping daisy cutters wantonly throughout the Middle East and sending liberals to Guantanamo."

"We need to execute people like (John Walker Lindh) in order to physically intimidate liberals."

"You will find liberals always rooting for savages against civilization."

"We need somebody to put rat poisoning in Justice Stevens' creme brulee. That's just a joke, for you in the media."

"I was going to have a few comments about John Edwards but you have to go into rehab if you use the word faggot."

"If I'm going to say anything about John Edwards in the future, I'll just wish he had been killed in a terrorist assassination plot."

But that's not true. Because you won't find me insulting widows of 9/11 victims, you won't find me calling people retards, you won't find me using homosexual slurs, you won't find me insulting an entire demographic by calling them fat and lazy, you won't find me insulting the elderly, and people of faith.


That's very good of you. But there are plenty of sadistic, violent, and psychopaths who do not insult people. Jeffry Dahmer was considered a nice man by everyone that knew him. So though I won't find some insulting the elderly, we could find them doing other things that are morally reprehensible.

Words are not weapons. She gets to you because you let her.




The question is, why have you fallen under her spell and why can't you see it? Why do you defend her? Interesting questions.


What spell?

I defend her because she doesn't seem like the person you're condemning her as.


I disagree. A not sure why you think words don't hurt or matter. They do. Second, her words are all public record. She is the person I say she is, which is mean and hateful and negative and offensive, not because it's my opinion but because she really does say mean, hateful, negative and offensive things.

I would suggest this...If you say mean, hateful things because it makes you money and people pay you to say mean hateful things, then you are a mean hateful person.

And I think the realm and scope of this thread revolves around one simple question. Is Ann Coulter a nasty person and should we be upset that she was insulted on a Comedy Central roast. The answers are yes she's the nastiest person I know (based on the historical record of what she's said) and nah don't feel bad for Ann it's Karma -you get what you deserve in the end nnd...you go on a roast you get roasted. It's like getting invited to be on Jerry Springer...You know it's only going to end badly. Don't go.



Words do not hurt (I never said they do not matter) because to say otherwise is to believe words can manipulate matter, or in other words, to believe in sorcery. It is a superstition that our society has yet to get over, and I think your indictment of someone you have never met, and the way you pretend the words are driving your judgement instead of your emotions holding the reigns, is evidence of this.

Ann Coulter has never hurt anyone, she has never committed a crime, and all you can convict her of is that she wrote things you didn't like, yet you compare her to the likes of Kim Jung Un and pedophile Jared Fogel. This is little different than Khomeini charging Salman Rushdie for blasphemy, because he is superstitious against words he doesn't like and writers who put them to paper. You sound like thought police, and I am glad you are not in a position in power.

You are very smart, so I'll assume your misunderstanding of "words can hurt" must be done on purpose?

Perhaps you've never heard of Psychology? Maybe you don't understand that words can influence people in negative ways...words are the primary weapon of those that want to spread propaganda or hurt someones character or assassinate someones character, lies are spread with words, brainwashing is done with words, indoctrination is done with words, gossip is spread with words, we have been divided as a nation into a false left right paradigm with words...words even help start wars.

My dislike of Ann Coulter is based on the historical record of what she says. The lies, the insults, the negativity and the hateful things she says. It's all right there on google with literally hundreds of good sources.

This country doesn't need people spewing hate right now. Hate is never good for anything.

I'm not sure how you don't see her hateful rhetoric as problematic. Especially when there are people that hang on these peoples every words. They read Ann's books and believe every word she rights, they listen to Rush Limbaugh not realizing that he's an idiot. They watch Bill O'Reilly never questioning his character.

Dumbest fake outrage ever.


I hear that. I am confused as to why this is in a political forum instead of the "People" forum.

Ann Coulter is an outspoken "shock jock" of the political world and that's all this story has to do with politics. But it doesn't surprise me that some 'roasters' took advantage of the opportunity to say a few things that they wouldn't normally say. That's what happens at a roast. She has certainly voiced her share of acerbic insults to people over the years. What do people expect them to do? Be politically correct. maybe?

I would never watch a roast. The snippets I've seen from years ago were appalling and I don't condone anyone speaking to ANYONE like they spoke to Ann Coulter. But she volunteered for it. She's got to know that there are some people out there who cannot stand her and have been insulted by her, and given the opportunity, would return fire in her direction.

She's selling a book, so I bet she thinks it's a GREAT story! All her fans will go out and buy her book to defend her honor...

No I am saying your misunderstanding is based on a deep-seeded superstition.

I have heard of psychology, yes.

Yes people can believe words; people can believe propaganda. Yes, people believe lies, people will believe another's brainwashing, people will believe gossip. Words are not agents. Humans are. You have put yourself and others in the passive, and the words in the active. It is the other way around.

I know you dislike what Ann Coulter writes and says. You’ve quote-mined her quotes out of context, stripped them of all comedic nuance, irony, sarcasm, and used them as the scapegoats to your own emotions. That’s evidence of your own hate, not Ann Coulter’s. It would be more prudent, not to mention less hateful, to refute her writings, to prove her wrong, than to declare blasphemy.

I don’t see her rhetoric as hateful, nor problematic. They are words, and are absent of human emotions and intentions. Words cannot be anymore hateful than a rock can, and until people realize that, we will be forever divided.

The problem with hateful propaganda is that weak minded people feed off of it. You are correct in that words cannot harm more than a rock can, but she is a propaganda agent and uses her words to instill fear and get to the lowest common denominator. It's not our job to shepherd the weak minded, but even many stronger, intellectual minds get persuaded and polluted by propaganda and brainwashing.

Her words help in the effort to divide the United States of America into the left vs right camps. She's making things worse by trying to divide us when we need to come together as a country. Only words can bring us together. The right words. Words are that powerful.

I took nothing out of context, you should watch her on Sean Hannities show sometime. It made me puke in my mouth a little bit, every word was an insult to those who didn't hold her beliefs or were of a different political philosophy or upbringing. There was no comedic value. She's about as funny as cancer.

What her harm? She's helping divide this country as are her cohorts Hannity, Limbaugh, O'Reilly etc. All of them worthless blowhards. Look em up online. It's not an opinion, but a fact based on what they say.

We don't need the uneducated amongst us ..those that are easily swayed by rhetoric, believing that what she says is truth. It's like a Cult...once they get indoctrinated into her belief system..they are very hard to bring back and many of them believe till the day they die.

It's criminal really.

This thread still going? pretty sad honestly.

It is a ROAST.

People get made fun of and not in a nice way.

Why does this bother so many people? who cares? live your life and stop worrying about someone you don't even know.

This is the biggest problem with society, people are way too insensitive and care way too much about people they don't even know.

Now I'm not saying don't care about the next person, i'm saying don't get offended by what someone else says to another person you don't even know personally, who is being made fun of....at a ROAST.

Threats?

Is that what it was? I could have sworn it was an acknowledgement of having little use for being insulted, and having a bit of a temper about such things...oh, that's right I'm still growing up.

But that's ok, because you're here to tell me these things. Cool.

Sorry if such humor (?) doesn't appeal to my overly sensitive self... I shall work on becoming more insulting, that'll be humorous, right? ...or at the very least, not expressing my distaste for it.
