A lot of conservatives have been upset by Ann Coulter‘s recent comments on the return of the Ebola-infected missionaries from Africa in recent weeks.
Jim Treacher at The Daily Caller had some words for her, and a lot of others thought Coulter was heartless in her attack, which seemed to be directed at missionary work in general, and these missionaries in particular.
What I think a lot of these bloggers and commentators miss, is that Coulter knows as much about the Great Commission as she does about dating conservatives.
I enjoy Ann’s writing and commentary and it’s impossible to deny her razor wit, as well as at times her intellect. But judging from some of the guys she’s dated, I would guess her lifestyle is about as conservative as John McCain’s only truly Unpardonable Sin, Meghan McCain.
I don’t know whether Coulter is a Christian or not, but she’s certainly not an evangelical or a conservative Catholic, or she’d understand why these missionaries risk their lives for the cause of Christ.
I won’t resort to calling her a RINO, though, because she acts like just about every other Republican pundit I know: a walking endorsement for Hillary Clinton in 2016. The only thing missing are the sandwich boards.
If Coulter and her establishment friends continue to support governors who either 1) Hug Obama between snacks, or 2) Wear Superman skivvies under their street clothes, it’ll be Hail to the Hag before we know it.
Personally, I don’t think it was advisable to bring these Americans home to be treated, either. And I do agree with Coulter that there is about as much threat of an Ebola outbreak due to their return as there is through Obama’s Mara Salvatrucha Boatlift on the Rio Grande. (All that will produce is a whole lot of syphilitic, heroin-addicted 13-year-old gangbanger mommies and 14 or 15 other communicable diseases the U.S. hasn’t seen for 100 years.) But the medical missions’ workers could have been treated just as well in Africa.
However, unlike Coulter, I have no criticism for the sacrificial service of these missionaries to both Christianity and humanity; they deserve high honor as Believers and Americans.
Frankly, it’s hard to understand Ann Coulter’s hostility toward the missionaries, or Samaritan’s Purse, a fine charity to which I have personally donated. Samaritan’s and the other charity owe it to their personnel to seek out and provide the best treatment available.
These charities have only to answer to their donors and this donor is satisfied they made the decision they thought best for their workers.
Coulter wrote a follow-up piece this week chastising conservatives for name-calling rather than challenging her ideas.
I hope I haven’t named-called here but I probably haven’t challenged any of her ideas, either.
That would be difficult anyway.
Ann Coulter hasn’t been in her right mind since she drank the Kool-Aid at that Christie fundraiser in 2012.
