Mole's Progressive Democrat

The Progressive Democrat Newsletter grew out of the frustration of the 2004 election. Originally intended for New York City progressives, its readership is now national. For anyone who wants to be alerted by email whenever this newsletter is updated (usually weekly), please send your email address and let me know what state you live in (so I can keep track of my readership).

    Progressive Democrat Issue 120: WISCONSIN FOCUS: Fighting Ann Coulter in Wisconsin

    As I highlighted above, Ann Coulter hate speech continues, and so she is once again the target of a progressive boycott. Above I discuss contacting advertisers on her website. Here I want to urge you to contact newspapers that carry her column wherein she advocates terrorism against Americans. Interestingly, one of the first newspapers to drop her column due to her disgusting rhetoric was, long ago, the conservative National Review. They dropped her column after she responded to the 9/11 attacks by stating that America should "invade their [terrorists'] countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity." Since then her hate speech has only gotten worse. She has compared Islam with the KKK and routinely advocates violence against liberals and insults homosexuals. She has the right to say what she wants. And newspapers have the right to carry it. But, we have the right to fight back as well.

    Wisconsin is such a mix of progressive and conservative, that I think it is particularly important to target Ann Coulter here. I think the kinds of progressives AND conservatives in Wisconsin are NOT the types who will like the kind of terrorism Coulter advocates.

    Here is a list of Wisconsin papers with contact info. PLEASE write them and urge them to follow the example of the National Review and drop Ann Coulter's column.
