Ann Coulter Bushwacked on Radio by Conservative Christian Abortion Foes


Ultra-conservative Christian talk-radio hosts are taking a new
approach to get their message out — ambushing right-wing pundit Ann
Coulter for supporting 2008 GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
Absolutist anti-abortion activists accuse Romney of being “willing to
sacrifice children for your vote.”

The Denver-based American Right to Life Action (RTL) leads the
charge against Coulter with a YouTube video that shows excerpts of
Coulter’s on-air radio freak-outs and calls on the acid-tongued author
to apologize and retract her support for Romney.

In typical Coulter fashion, she calls the critics “crazy Romney
froofers,” “fanatics” and “on the order of 9-11 conspiracy theorists”
before hanging up.

The foul-mouthed pundit, whose stock in trade is making withering
remarks about liberals, may have met her match in American RTL’s
leaders: ex-Colorado GOP chairman Steve Curtis, Brian Rohrbough, whose
son Daniel died in the 1999 Columbine High School massacre, and
bombastic Pastor Bob Enyart — the three men are no shrinking violets
themselves.

The controversial group was established in November 2007 shortly
after Colorado Right to Life was booted from its affiliate status with
National Right to Life for running a series of ads criticizing Focus on the Family founder James Dobson for not being anti-abortion enough in The Washington [D.C.] Times and Colorado Springs Gazette.

American RTL then moved on as an outspoken backer of Amendment 48, the failed 2008 Colorado ballot measure that sought to give constitutional rights to fertilized eggs.

Bashing Coulter appears to be its latest cause célèbre.

Says Rohrbough in a written statement accompanying the video release:

Ann Coulter has misrepresented and even defended some of
the most egregious and immoral behavior. When Ann covers up
aggressively anti-marriage action, and pro-abortion legislation that
actually funds the killing of unborn children, she apparently is
motivated by a desire to distort the truth and deceive Christians for
some personal gain.

    I have no sympathy for Ann Coulter and could care less who attacks that miserable excuse for a human being!

    The point of this article isn’t to make you feel sorry for Ms. Coulter, but to show how the right wing is so screwed up that even a reactionary blowhard like her gets sniped by her own side!

    Oh wow, this is awesome! They’ll rip each other to shreds while the rest of the world actually gets something done without their senseless prattling.

    I’m going to blame the pro-life wingnuts for the fact that, for the first time ever, I just agreed with the fascist lunatic Ann Coulter. When you’re crazy enough to make her look sane, you are pretty much screwed.

    The attacks couldn’t happen to a nicer person

    Ann Coulter is just like the rest of the right – when they are being interviewed or talking to a person who shares their beliefs they are a know it all smug arrogant human being. As soon as they are up against someone who actually has a brain and can debate them on the points – they get defensive and start name calling. I love seeing her getting cut down to size.
