Talk To Action: Coulter Calls for Murder, Again

-By Frederick Clarkson

December 3, 2011- Nationally syndicated provocateur Ann Coulter has once again justified the murder of people of whom she does not approve. 

Media Matters reports that this time she told San Francisco radio talk show host Bryan Sussman that Occupy Wall Street protesters should be shot, much as anti-war protestors were shot in the notorious episode at Kent State during the Vietnam war.  She describes OWS protesters, in the manner of the Religious Right, as "demonic" and "evil."

"... just remember the lesson from my book: it just took a few shootings at Kent State to shut that down for good."

Coulter also said:

"This is the first time they got bullets back... and that put an end to the protests pretty quickly."

It is not the first time she has looked to the Kent State shootings as a model, nor is it the first time she has suggested violence against or the murder of people with whom she disagrees, including Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens. Media Matters has a good list for those who are interested in Coulter's sorry career,  but here are some relevant additions. 

Coulter has justified the assassination of abortion providers at least four times in print and on television, and before a national Religious Right political conference, as I reported in 2009.  This included the justification of the assassination of Dr. George Tiller.

Appearing on The O'Reilly Factor she said: 

"I don't really like to think of it as a murder.  It was terminating Tiller in the 203rd trimester."

When O'Reilly pressed her on this she replied:

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