Did Ann Coulter accidentally make her first good point ever?
Truly a career milestone
by Katie Way
Ann Coulter is a conservative author, lawyer and radio and television commentator. She's also an evil, fear-mongering bitch, and one of the most compelling reasons to believe in Hell is the idea that when she dies, that's where she'll go.
Some of Coulter's greatest hits include spewing her continuous, decades-long stream of anti-immigrant, homophobic and racist takes, her on-and-off support of Donald Trump, that time she threw a hissy fit when Delta Airlines switched her seat and the way she embarrassed herself at the Comedy Central Roast of Rob Lowe.
In the wake of the recent terrorist attack in downtown Manhattan on Tuesday, Coulter was obviously ready with some Islamophobia, because spreading misleading and hateful information is the only thing preventing her from crumbling into a pile of marzipan and shitty highlights.
But in the midst of her hateful tweetstorm, Coulter accidentally pointed out something pertinent with the following tweet:
Loony left NYPD spokesman refuses to reveal terrorist's name or nationality. I'm guessing a blonde guy named Bjorn from Norway.

The implication of the tweet is obvious: that the man who perpetrated the terrorist attack is of Middle Eastern descent, with a name to match. But when Coulter chose a "blonde guy named Bjorn from Norway" as her example of someone who couldn't possibly have perpetrated Tuesday's attack, she inadvertently invoked another, prolific terrorist of Norwegian descent.
On July 22, 2011, a Norwegian man named Anders Breivik bombed a government building in Oslo, Norway's capital, and then shot and killed 69 people at a youth camp for one of the country's progressive parties. 319 people were also injured, non-fatally, in the two attacked.
Breivik was a devout racist who wrote thousand-page long screeds about the "Islamisation" of Europe, and his fear of Islam was the express reason that he committed his acts of terrorism.
Yes! Maybe indeed it could have been someone from Norway, maybe this guy? Remember him, and the children he killed? pic.twitter.com/zNb9xyL4d8

Dear Ann. I'm from Norway. Six years ago a blonde compatriot of mine, inspired by the likes of you, murdered 77 people. Now fuck off. https://t.co/TNOqFt4YaU

That happened once, you intolerable jackass. His name was Anders Breivik. https://t.co/RPDzj9Cnoz

By being her typical, bigoted self, Ann Coulter accidentally made a good point: There is no one face, race or nationality when it comes to acts of terrorism.
Pretending otherwise not only does victims and survivors of terrorist acts a disservice, it's a myopic viewpoint that can keep us from recognizing terrorist threats because they don't fit the "profile."
