This is not the first clash between Joseph Farah and Ann Coulter. The Worldnetdaily carries Coulter’s weekly column, but Farah was not pleased when she ignored and then made fun of the birther movement that he helps lead. Now imagine living in a world where Ann Coulter is considered a weak-kneed moderate.
While claiming to “love” the tea-party activists “out there in America,” she denigrates some unnamed organizations that are getting rich fighting “establishment Republicans.”
The solution to all of America’s problems, according to Ann Coulter, lies in electing Republicans – any and all Republicans. It doesn’t matter where they stand on the issues. It doesn’t matter how effective they have been in office. It doesn’t matter if they have betrayed those who elected them or the Constitution.
Ann Coulter enthusiastically supported Mitt Romney in 2012 – in the Republican primaries. Her real favorite at the time wasn’t running – Chris Christie.
Is this still the face of conservatism in America?
I hope not.
A Facebook friend the other day came up with a great name for this kind of thing: the One True Scotsman. Only Farah is pure enough to be the One True Conservative. Republican politicians keep moving further and further to the right and it’s still never enough. Even John Cornyn, rated as the 2nd most conservative member of the Senate, gets multiple Tea Party types wanting to run against him in the primary. In the end, there can only be One True Scotsman.
