Speaking about Michelle Obama’s commencement address at Tuskegee University, Ann Coulter said the First Lady let out her “inner Reverend Wright,” Real Clear Politics reported. Coulter said Obama espoused racial views similar to those of the Obama’s former pastor, the Reverend Jeremiah Wright.
“I think she’s just letting out her Reverend Wright now. You know, a week before this, I’m really glad you played the segment of her saying it was the first time in her life she’s proud of her country, and then she’s indignant that people might think she doesn’t love her country,” Ann Coulter said about Michelle Obama.
“Ann Coulter slammed First Lady Michelle Obama on Fox News for ‘crying racism’ during her commencement address at Tuskegee University,” AL.com reported about Ann Coulter’s comments about Michelle Obama.
Coulter had appeared on Sean Hannity’s show on the Fox News channel and made the comments about Michelle Obama’s commencement address at Tuskegee University.
“This is exactly as I predicted,” Coulter said. “We had finally got rid of a lot of this racial demagoguery in response to the O.J. verdict, and Obama and his enablers and the left-wing media have brought it back in order to gin up and keep a certain segment of the black community angry and voting against Republicans.”
“The First Lady expressed her own experiences with racism while giving a speech to new graduates. A clip was played on the show which Coulter quickly responded to in an anything-but-complimentary way,” CBS News in Washington, D.C. reported.
Coulter suggested that Michelle Obama was “harping on white racism” in her comments and not recognizing the vast improvement in racial issues since the successes of the civil rights movement.
Ann Coulter said that white people have done enough to make up for slavery, the Inquisitr reported, “Ann Coulter took the gloves off following Michelle Obama’s commencement address at Tuskegee University. Appearing on the Fox News program Hannity, Coulter spoke to Sean Hannity about the First Lady’s comments, which she characterized as ‘Rev. Wright”-esque.'”
“Yes, America does owe black America for slavery, for the Democratic policies of Jim Crow,” the Inquisitr quoted Coulter as saying. “But I think we’ve — we’re making it up now, when you’re getting admitted to Princeton when you can’t read, is that enough yet?”
