Ann Coulter: ‘No American Whose Great Grandfather Was Born Here is Watching Soccer,’ Interest Sign of Nation’s ‘Moral Decay’

Ann Coulter didn’t share the country’s enthusiasm over the U.S. Mens National Team making the knockout round of the 2014 World Cup, instead writing that the nation’s interest in soccer is a sign of the public’s “moral decay.”

This week, Coulter penned a new column listing nine reasons why “any growing interest in soccer can only be a sign of the nation’s moral decay.”

“Do they even have MVPs in soccer? Everyone just runs up and down the field and, every once in a while, a ball accidentally goes in,” Coulter wrote. “That’s when we’re supposed to go wild. I’m already asleep.”

Coulter also says that “individual achievement is not a big fact,” not to mention the fact that “it’s foreign.”

Naturally, she says, America’s interest in soccer is the result of all the immigrants those liberals allowed into the country.

“If more ‘Americans’ are watching soccer today, it’s only because of the demographic switch effected by Teddy Kennedy’s 1965 immigration law,” she states. “I promise you: No American whose great-grandfather was born here is watching soccer. One can only hope that, in addition to learning English, these new Americans will drop their soccer fetish with time.”

Some other reasons that soccer is “un-American” that Coulter lists includes, “liberal moms like soccer,” “no other sport ends in as many scoreless ties,” and “you can’t use your hands in soccer.”

She writes, “soccer is like the metric system, which liberals also adore because it’s European.”

    annie is starting to look a little rough. my forefathers came here in 1620 on my fathers side and i am native american on my mothers side, and i watch the soccer games. what does that make me? a traitor?

  • Isaiah Liggins

    Mis Coulter, the reason the great grand fathers weren’t interested in soccer – they were too busy watching my great grandfathers who were slaves. Do you really want THAT country back?

    • Michelle G

      She probably does!

    • Carol Graham

      Yeah, she probably does. She be C R A Z Y !!! Luckily, most people don’t take her too seriously anymore (she’s said too many wacky things). “Moral decay” is when the Republicans agreed they weren’t going to let President Obama pass any significant legislation. Used to be public officials tried to do the right thing for the people.

      Not everyone’s ancestors had slaves dear. Some were even slaves of a kind themselves. Google “redemptioners”

      • Isaiah Liggins

        I was only trying to make a point. The point being that she brought up the issue about great grandfathers being born here and their offsprings didn’t watch soccer. Granted, not everyone owned slaves – some WERE slaves. The other point is, when you talk about the past, please include the past from all perspectives.

  • Dave Hinckley

    My ancestors got here somewhere in the mid-1600’s. I don’t watch soccer, baseball is boring, hockey is ok on a big screen HD so you an watch the puck fly around, but, football, THAT’s a game worth watching.
    What’s my point? It’s this: Ann Coulter’s adam’s apple is getting more pronounced.

  • Bob Sackamento

    She’s the nation’s highest-paid troll. God bless her.

  • Frank G. Carter, Jr.

    Wrong again, Ann. All four of my Great Grandfahers were in the Civil War fighting with Cabell’s Division in Pickett’s Charge in Gettysburg. We lost and my family was wounded. Yet, I am religiously watching the World Cup and I’m 64. Take that you Yankee crock of sh$$.

  • M Chancey

    Completely ridiculous! I would love to try to explain how stupid this claim is, but I realize it simply is not worthy of any more of my time….good day.


      I agree , who pays this woman to open her mouth I’m sure you can teach her a better reason for opening it her brain is clearly unable to put words of substance in it maybe she should fill it something she can please .

  • Suhas Sakhalkar

    Well, no American whose great grandfather was born here, and in his or her right mind listens to/or gives a flying f#ck about what this hateful witch has to say!

    • Rodney Levenduski

      Excellent response Suhas !

  • Mickie Lynn Halley

    she’s starting to look like an after photo for meth users

    • Carol Graham

      That’s what inappropraite anger does to you!

  • Rodney Levenduski

    Ann is not worth reading.

  • Carol Graham

    I’m cracking up reading the comments! She says such bizarre things, she gets people going. I don’t usually comment on a person’s appearance, but chronic inappropriate anger will make you ugly inside … and eventually outside.

    Uh, I think the phrase ” soccer mom” started when she was a kid, the yuppies of suburbia where all upper middle class parents had to put their kids into afterschool activities like soccer, that’s when soccer became popular in America. So what’s she talking about? It has nothing to do with immigrants now, and many, many things we do today came from imigrants. We all came from another country, according to our DNAs, except for the Native Americans ( and according to history’s recent discoveries, the Vikings)!

  • Badw0lf

    Wow. I think it’s safe to say that my great grandfather, my great great grandfather and a couple more greats were born here since my first ancestor came here from Baden Germany in 1720. I like soccer just fine. There goes her theory

  • Alex Harman

    The fact that anyone in this country takes Anne Coulter’s drivel seriously is a sign of our national intellectual decay.

    Mr. Coulter needs to shave his head and own his true sexuality.
