Enjoying the World Cup, are you? Watching USA vs. Germany, right?
Keep in mind, the woman Salon this morning calls a “fading right-wing troll” thinks you’re soft. More specifically, she thinks you’re no American. And worse.
In her latest column, Coulter blames “the demographic switch effected by Teddy Kennedy’s 1965 immigration law” for soccer’s growing popularity in the United States.
Or, in other words, foreigners.
“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.”
That’s from the column’s 16-point italicized intro.

Individual achievement is not a big factor in soccer. In a real sport, players fumble passes, throw bricks and drop fly balls — all in front of a crowd. When baseball players strike out, they’re standing alone at the plate. But there’s also individual glory in home runs, touchdowns and slam-dunks.
Liberal moms like soccer because it’s a sport in which athletic talent finds so little expression that girls can play with boys. No serious sport is co-ed, even at the kindergarten level.
