Republican blacks are better than Democrat blacks. In the mind of Ann Coulter, that’s a fact. Coulter made the “our blacks are better than their blacks” statement earlier this week on Fox News, and she stood by the claim last night while talking to Joy Behar.
Coulter said on Fox News:
“Our blacks are so much better than their blacks… To become a black Republican, you don’t just roll into it. You’re not going with the flow. You have fought against probably your family members, probably your neighbors, you have thought everything out and that’s why we have very impressive blacks in our party.”
According to the NY Daily News, Coulter points to Herman Cain, Michael Steele, and Allen West as examples of impressive black Republicans.
HLN’s Joy Behard asked Coulter if she believed “all the African Americans who are Democrats are stupid?”
“No. I’m saying Google Maxine Waters, Cynthia McKinney, John Conyers, and then Google Allen West, Michael Steele or Herman Cain. … Ours are more impressive. There’s no question about it.”
Coulter also claims that people are only racist against conservative African-Americans and not liberals. Coulter said:
“The only racism you hear in America is against conservative blacks.”
Coulter isn’t the only one pulling out the race card. Yesterday, Donald Trump accused Jon Stewart of making racist remarks against Herman Cain.
But Coulter’s claim that “the only racism you hear in America is against conservative blacks” doesn’t really hold up. I seem to remember seeing a sign somewhere before…
“Their stated policy, publicly stated, is to do whatever it takes to see to it that Obama only serves one term. What’s that mean? What underlines that? ‘Screw the country. We’re going to whatever we can to get this black man outta here.’”
You might not agree with Freeman or his like-minded celebrities, but saying that racism is only pointed in one direction seems a little short-sighted.
Do you agree with Ann Coulter? Are her blacks better than their blacks?
