Ann Coulter – Shining a Light on Slacktivism or Queen of Oxygen Thieves

I have generally stayed out of the Boko Haram issue. Mainly because I really had nothing to say on the topic. I understand the problems with the Boko Haram in that they are similar to the Indian Naxalites, operating out of strongholds where there is an effective governmental black hole, but I also didn’t want to speculate.

He murdered another human. He raped another human. He invaded a home and raped one woman and shot and wounded another. He then buried her with is accomplice.

What ensued was cruel.
