ANN COULTER ON BOMBING SUSPECT’S WIFE: ‘SHE OUGHT TO BE IN PRISON FOR WEARING A HIJAB’ AND…

Ann Coulter Lambastes Boston Bombers Wife Katherine Russell on Hannity

On Monday night, conservative commentator Ann Counter appeared on Fox News’ “Hannity” to discuss the latest developments in the Boston Marathon bombing. And by Tuesday morning she was making headlines for it.

Among the topics discussed was Katherine Russell, widow of deceased terror suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev. While commenting about Russell, Coulter made some controversial claims and quips about immigration, assimilation – and clitorectomies.

It’s been widely reported that the alleged bomber’s wife converted to Islam after meeting Tsarnaev. Despite being raised a Christian, she now reportedly embraces Koranic teaching and wears a traditional hijab. Coulter, using the woman to make more wide-ranging determinations, took aim at Russell.

“She ought to be in prison for wearing a hijab,” the commentator said. “This immigration policy of, you know, us assimilating immigrants into our culture isn’t really working.”

She wasn’t done.

“No they’re assimilating us into their culture. Did she get a clitorectomy, too?,” she asked.

Host Sean Hannity paused and then said, “Well, I don’t know the answer to that.” He promptly moved on and the two continued discussing the case. It seems clear Coulter was likely overemphasizing these themes to make a grander point, however her critics likely won’t see it that way.

A clitorectomy is also known as female genital mutilation and is sometimes used in cultural and religious practice to suppress female pleasure. The procedure is widely regarded as a horrific and barbaric practice.

The full block quote from Coulter’s discussion about Russell can be found here:

“One thing that’s been sort of confusing in the reporting — they say that he married her in 2010 that I believe to be true. But they keep saying that he hit her, or his girlfriend a year ago, it turns out, which the father by the way defended as, according to The New York Times, quote ‘he only lightly hit her.’ Point two, no the person he hit was another girlfriend while he was married to her. I don’t care if she knew about this. She ought to be in prison for wearing a hijab. This immigration policy of, you know, us assimilating immigrants into our culture isn’t really working. No they’re assimilating us into their culture. Did she get a clitorectomy, too?”

One of the parents of a child in my dd's daycare wears one.  She doesn't bring him to daycare anymore because she wears one of those.  People are harassing her like crazy and she's afraid to leave her house!   It's so sad and ignorant the way people treat others.  Clothing doesn't make you a bomber or a terrorist!  Some people! Ugh!

WTF! 

Well I personally think she should be in jail for stupidity and that Fox news should be taken off the air. Disgusting! Completely disgusting! People wonder why people keep acting out in violence? This is why! We breed and pass on so much hate in this country, that it's a wonder it doesn't happen more often!

She's in her element.  She is happy this happened, I'll bet.  Then she can get really stupid and will get away with it because of the bottom feeders in this country who are all stirred up about them dirty Muslims.

So did she actually say anything about the actual crime that was committed?  Or just start randomly making bigoted and uneducated remarks?

She reminds me of that Don Henley song:

We got the bubble-headed-bleach-blonde who 
Comes on at five 
She can tell you 'bout the plane crash with a gleam 
In her eye 
It's interesting when people die- 
Give us dirty laundry
