Why Ann Coulter Doesn’t Care

Yes, the Latino digital space is burning with columns, analysis, and posts from both sides of the aisle about Ann Coulter's "Tipping Pointo" piece, which basically was full of so much ignorance and hate about US Latinos, that we can't even begin to address it.

And yes, Coulter doesn't care. Because as long as her media friends (like the following clips below will attest) worship her for speaking out, she will still find an audience. The key to fighting Coulter is to drown out her more amplified voice with our own new voices. Coulter wouldn't last five minutes engaging anyone who actually knows what they are talking about, but if Coulter can get her own media niche, then it is time for US Latinos to do the same. Don't wait for it. Go for it. We think that time is now, and we truly believe that in a year or two Coulter will feel the "Tipping Pointo" push her away from the limelight.

Because like we said, Ann Coulter doesn't care. To make Coulter irrelevant, you have to defeat her at her own game. Who's in? Because to be honest with you, she is one tough opponent.

Ann Coulter has no dignity. She is a neocon who represent the hardliners. But progressive people are changing this nation to make it a better country. http://tiny.cc/techtrends

DignityPeace, you are correct. Coulter, like Limbaugh, is in it for the money and the attention. And as you point out, their core listeners are very loyal (that is the nice word for it) and supportive, thus they make a lot of money.They are not serious thinkers and they do not debate in good faith, thus arguing with them only helps them. To use a saying I learned on the Gator Country board (sorry to bring sports into this): Never argue with an idiot. They will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience." They love the attention and thrive on being attacked.Andy Kaufman played the bad wrestler because any reaction, even a bad one, is better than none. I believe we should let Coulter and Limbaugh sink into irrelevance. Again, they are not serious thinkers.

It only takes a fraction of people to like you before you have a market. The overwhelming majority of people dislike these right wing pundits and they are actually hurting their parties rather than helping thin, but they are making a lot of money of the 10-30% who are impassioned about them.
