NEW CANAAN, Conn. -- World Cup fever may be growing across the United States as the home team moves to the next round, but New Canaan native Ann Coulter is blasting soccer as un-American. 

In a piece called "America's Favorite National Pastime: Hating Soccer," Coulter links the rise in the popularity of soccer in the U.S. to U.S. Sen. Edward Kennedy's 1965 changes in immigration law and said, "Any growing interest in soccer can only be a sign of the nation's moral decay."

She attacks the sport for everything from its lack of scoring, coed children's leagues and rules banning the use of hands. 

"No other 'sport' ends in as many scoreless ties as soccer," she wrote. "If Michael Jackson had treated his chronic insomnia with a tape of Argentina vs. Brazil instead of Propofol, he'd still be alive, although bored."

She also complains the sport is "foreign" and compares it to the metric system. 

Her column is drawing reaction from across the Internet, especially on Twitter. Here are a few comments: 

  • "Ann Coulter meets a new low. I have no words. Probably the worst column I've read. And I don't even like soccer," Alexander Hallberg said via @wingate32
  • "The biggest fail of Ann Coulter's presumably mock-Xenophobic and tongue-in-cheek-ignorant anti-soccer rant is that it wasn't actually funny," Jim Piddock ‏said via @realjimpiddock  .
  • "Hate to give it more attention because that was the whole purpose of the article, but Ann Coulter's piece on soccer was truly truly awful," Alex Eaton ‏said @EatonGood.
  • Alex Kantrowitz ‏@Kantrowitz  called it "Ann Coulter self-parody." 
  • "Hilarious anti-soccer anti-immigration op-ed from @AnnCoulter that reads like an Onion piece," Kris Nielsen ‏said @KrisNielsenKC.  

But some came to her defense:

  • "The fact that people are mad about  @AnnCoulter's clearly funny take on soccer is a sign of America's moral decay," Steven Crowder ‏said @scrowder.

Ann Coulter is a 1980 graduate of New Canaan High School who writes a regular column.

I think our friendly, super- intelligent Norwalk Troll is in fact the moderator! What better way to get as traffic to such a boring, vanilla site such as DV, then to stir up some drama? Lmaoooo!!!

You could be right.. The only thing is the posts from natsgarage who is the same troll as www.Norwalktroll.com that destroyed other Norwalk sites using different user names. This troll actually lives in Port Chester. It was known as RObtard when it destroyed Norwalk Topix.

Joe
FYI
She doesn't even live in Norwalk she just trolls the Norwalk sites and destroys them from the Port Chester Homeless Shelter

What about all those 'headers' and concussions? What about the violent and deadly riots that are directly associated with 'football'/soccer over the years? Biting, concussions, riots, people trampled to death...how civilized. As far as Coulter, her books are some of the best cited, footnoted, and researched with real evidence and analysis. Satire is not owned solely by the left.

You tell them girlfriend

Good for you Ann. 90% of these people who are on the soccer bandwagon are doing it to appear cool and don't know crap about the game or have any interest in it the rest of the year. Just an excuse to dress silly and drink. Finally someone said it.

She's desperate for attention and media buzz, so that's why she's saying this xenophobic stuff. Typical right-winger crap. If the sport is a sign of "moral decay", then why is soccer so popular among young children in weekend and travel leagues and supported by many well-educated, upstanding parents here in Fairfield county? And is it "moral decay" when the cream of the crop wind up getting college scholarships?

She drives liberals nuts. I like her.

Is Coulter still relevant on anything? I do not care for soccer, but I care even less about anything Coulter says...

She is one of the far right nutso's who gives conservatives a bad name. I honestly wish she'd be quiet and go away, but this is the attention she craves and, sadly we're giving it to her. Enough said.

Coulter summed up her hatred of soccer with two words: "It's foreign."

Coulter hates the left and abhors immigration. Hence, her diatribe on soccer. Coulter’s inexplicable hatred of the Other is one reason why we should Never Trust Ann Coulter - at ANY Age, a new book available at www.coulterwatch.com/never.pdf.
