BRAD BLOG Guest Blogger Lydia Cornell Responds to Ann Coulter's Astounding Violation of Her Privacy
By Lydia Cornell on 11/29/2005 5:15pm PT  

Guest Blogged by Lydia Cornell

(NOTE FROM BRAD: Lydia has been overwhelmed with notes, media interviews and yes, phone calls, since her original BRAD BLOG article on Ann Coulter and certainly since Coulter decided to post her private information on her website. It's been nearly 24 hours, and --- incredibly --- Coulter has yet to remove Lydia's personal information from her website. If you happen to read this in time, Lydia will be on Bob Kincaid's Head-On radio show at 6pm PT if you care to tune in or call in. You can listen online here.)

I have received so many wonderful letters of support, since posting my original article about Ann Coulter here on BRAD BLOG there is no doubt in my mind we are on the right path, shining light on hatred and perversity. Her personal attack against me as posted on her website last night seems to confirm that notion.

My phone has also, unfortunately, been ringing off the hook from people who call and just hang up. Thank you, Ann.

I see that Bill O'Reilly referred with outrage to Media Matters as having "violated your privacy by putting out your personal e-mail address" when in fact, according to this website, they hadn't actually posted anything but a public email address.

Since Brad reported on Bill O'Reilly's Enemy List today, I wonder if he'll add Coulter to his list, or at least show Ann Coulter the same kind of outrage --- and call her a "Zombie" as he did Media Matters --- for violating my privacy next time he has her on his show.

However, the news is still good and my hope for the country is unshaken. Only one out of every 20 letters I've received has been a hateful one. Here's an incredibly cruel letter from someone (whose email address and name I have removed!)...

Wherein Actress, Author and now BRAD BLOG Guest Blogger Lydia Cornell Attempts to Hold Alachua, FL Republicans' Feet to the Fire for Supporting and Profiting off the 'Political Porn' of One of America's Top Hate-Speakers...

Sex is sort of losing its appeal. Death is sexier these days, at least that's the impression I get from Ann Coulter, who makes a living calling for the "killing of Liberals" and repressing the free speech of Democrats. She may appear to be joking, but she is not. And Coulter actually claims to be a Christian. Like Pat Robertson and George W, she seems to take perverse delight in defining Christianity as the opposite of itself, so I suspect she belongs to the Antichrist trinity or the Taliban sect of Christianity.

I never mix religion with politics, but for Christ's sake, don't they know that Jesus was a Democrat? In fact, a bleeding heart liberal?!! The Great Peacemaker was the very essence of love and compassion; he was revolutionary in his softness and forbade vengeance of any kind. How the Christian right has twisted Christ's peaceful message is one of the riddles of our times. I've been bewildered to the point of jaw-gnashing agony at how certain fundamentalists can call themselves Christian, when they do not follow the teachings of Christ! I feel I'm going insane. Right after the 2004 election when You-Know-Who was elected, I actually developed a nervous tic in my left eye, like the Police chief in the Pink Panther, who was driven berserk by Inspector Clousseau. Of course there's no comparing the lovable Peter Sellers with the witless, war-mongering leader of the free world, but I don't want my eye twitch to come back so I'm trying to stop hating him so much. I think I figured out a way to talk to Ann Coulter: turn the other cheek and let her hit that one.

But it's so twisted and malevolent that Bush called himself a Christian and did the exact opposite of what Christ would do by rushing to war with 'shock and awe' --- and claiming he had an audience with God in this decision! The other day a plumber came to fix our sink and told me his wife has breast cancer; since I've had many miracles from prayer I told him I'd pray for her. Then I quickly apologized, "I'm a democrat --- but I pray." He laughed really hard and said, "Yeah well I think Bush is a war criminal."

Are we in the Twilight Zone? The only God I know is the God of Love. These right-wing "Christians" are engaged in the most dangerous perversion of Christianity I've ever seen! And despite what Cheney said recently defending our mission in Iraq --- all successful revolutions start from within; nothing is ever truly won by force. We could have gained allies in the underground and hovered over Saddam for years instead of carpet bombing precious Iraqi children, entire cities and looting ancient Babylonian museums. And by the way, whatever happened to that warehouse of weapons that was 'misplaced?' Does anyone remember what I'm talking about?

Anyway, Coulter seems to be a turn-on for certain young Republicans (the ones that go on field trips to hear Coulter spew hate..."with jokes" at anywhere between $16,000 and $30,000 a pop.) It was bad enough when our heroes were just anorectic models and athletes, but now we have a new generation of hate-speak-worshippers. It's true, hate sells, but I predict that the most exciting thing on the horizon is peace, even between Republicans and Democrats. Fighting and divisiveness are getting boring; 'moderate' is the new sexy. I mean in a world where everything is so intensely fringe, the only way to go is to the center, toward harmony. Think of Halle Barry, the most gorgeous mixture of black and white. Think of the 'Gang of 14': meeting in the middle, working things out, getting along --- it's ground-breaking! In other words, loving your enemy --- which is what The Great Peacemaker taught and what any good Christian would advocate.

So it was with peacemaking in mind --- that I returned the call from Bryan Harman, Vice-Chairman of the Alachua Republican Party...
