Ann Coulter's Most Controversial Quotes

10 of the Most Ridiculous Things Ann Coulter Has Ever Said

Ann Coulter landed back in the news this week by taking aim at soccer. In a syndicated column published on Wednesday — one day before the US played Germany in the World Cup — the political pundit and author wrote that "any growing interest in soccer can only be a sign of the nation's moral decay." According to Ann's way of thinking, the American public is being "force-fed" the sport with other pop culture staples: "The same people trying to push soccer on Americans are the ones demanding that we love HBO's Girls, light-rail, Beyoncé, and Hillary Clinton." Over the years, Ann has made her penchant for divisive remarks somewhat of an art form, grabbing headlines by insulting everyone from women to celebrities. Keep reading to discover some of the most ridiculous things we've ever heard her say, and if you find yourself needing an anecdote to the negativity, check out these inspiring quotes from iconic women.

  1. On radiation: "There is a growing body of evidence that radiation in excess of what the government says are the minimum amounts you should be exposed to are actually good for you and reduce cases of cancer." 
  2. On women: "If we took away women's right to vote, we'd never have to worry about another Democrat president. It's kind of a pipe dream, it's a personal fantasy of mine, but I don't think it's going to happen. And it is a good way of making the point that women are voting so stupidly, at least single women."
  3. On liberals: "I'm more of a man than any liberal."
  4. On oil and celebrities: "Why not go to war just for oil? We need oil. What do Hollywood celebrities imagine fuels their private jets? How do they think their cocaine is delivered to them?"
  5. On John Kerry's military record: "If John Kerry had a dollar for every time he bragged about serving in Vietnam — oh wait, he does."
  6. On public schools: "Most public schools are, at best, nothing but expensive babysitting arrangements, helpfully keeping hoodlums off the street during daylight hours. At worst, they are criminal training labs, where teachers sexually abuse the children between drinking binges and acts of grand larceny."
  7. On voting: "I think there should be a literacy test and a poll tax for people to vote."
  8. On government programs: "Isn't food important? Why not 'universal food coverage'? If politicians had given us 'universal food access' 20 years ago, today Democrats would be wailing about the 'food crisis' in America, and you'd be on the phone with your food-care provider arguing about whether or not a Reuben sandwich with fries is covered under your plan."
  9. On Canada sending troops to Vietnam . . . which never happened: "Canada used to be one of our most loyal friends, and vice versa. I mean, Canada sent troops to Vietnam."
  10. On the legalization of marijuana creating a "disaster for commerce""Potheads are incapable of following simple instructions and getting a job done. . . . You can't get anything done with a pothead."
