Liberals love America like O.J. loved Nicole

Ann Coulter (archive)
January 6, 2005

Even the United Nations sponge who called the United States "stingy" immediately retracted the insult, saying he had been misinterpreted and that the U.S. was "most generous." But the New York Times was sticking with "stingy." In an editorial subtly titled "Are We Stingy? Yes," the Times said the U.N. sponge "was right on target." This followed up a patriotic editorial a few days earlier titled "America, the Indifferent."
America's stinginess is a long-standing leitmotif for liberals – which is getting hard to square with their love for America. When it comes to heaping insults on America, U.S. liberals are the nation's leading donors.
In 2003, the Center for Global Development – funded by the Rockefeller Foundation, despite the fact that it could have used that money on future tsunami victims – concluded that the U.S. ranked 20th out of 21 nations in helping poorer nations. This came as a surprise, inasmuch as the U.S. gives the highest absolute amounts of foreign aid to the developing world.

Good to have you back my friend. What a catchy title!

Fail to see any connection with pointing out America's problems with lack of love for America. Do you feel America is perfect? Beyond improvement?

Well Greta, it is Anne's title actually.

As for you Doc Nos, when you factor in the donations made by Americans to Faith based and other private charities we give far more than any country on Earth. Actually the fact is America accounts for 5% of the population and we provide 37% of the foreign aid. The NY Times, probably the most Anti-American media source on the planet, next to Al-Jazeera, is only counting the aid sent that was confiscated from the people through taxes. They are also ignoring that our military is the only one in the world capable of distributing the aid. If not for our naval and air forces in the region all that aid we send to Indonesia and other affected nations would be sitting in the airports not reaching the people who need it. Have your facts straight if you want to post here.
