Got Racism?

Renowned for her racism, Ann Coulter again heralded the racial superiority of the white male over minorities (particularly women).

got-racism

In her column (1/11/17), Coulter asserted (emphasis added), “the 21st-century white American male is the most pacific – and least rock-throwing – Y-chromosomed being ever to walk the Earth..”

In contrast, Coulter contends, “Black women accusing white men of throwing rocks at them are thinking of what they would do.”

Moreover, Coulter declares rock throwing at Occupy Wall Street events was not committed by the “directionless, white (alleged) ‘men’” but “was done by their minority backup.”

During the last presidential cycle, Coulter claimed that she deserved a racism credit because of her good intentions. Her deepest desire is to recreate a WASP America, arguing that true diversity is white. Oh, and the superiority of WASP culture can be traced to its genes.

Coulter has become the high priestess of the Alt-Right movement, yet denies that its worldview and agenda emulate those of David Duke. She even confused the Confederate and American flags.

Coulter’s racist views keep bubbling out in her tweets, columns, and books because she regards herself as genetically superior to other people.

Ann Coulter Can’t Count, Read or Reason

In a stunning twitterstorm, Ann Coulter proved that she cannot count, read, or reason.

ann-coulter-cant-count-read-or-reason

Coulter was outed on January 5th, with a big controversy over her three-character tweet – “14!” – which shed obviously meant to identify the number of days until Trump’s inauguration but which was misconstrued as a white supremacist code word.

Defending herself, an irate Coulter unleashed her fury in a 2 ½-hour Twitter tirade (emphasis added):

6:16 pm – As I have been doing periodically since January 2016, today I tweeted out the number of days left in Obama’s presid… twitter.com/i/web/status/8…
6:17 pm – Inasmuch as today is Day 14 on the Obama Countdown Clock, I tweeted “14.” https://t.co/ArR3JMApGV
6:20 pm – Unknown to me, but VERY well known to hysterics, “14” has some mystical significance for the 5 or 6 ppl who believe themselves to be Nazis.
6:21 pm – Being the target of idiotic attacks can be fun! But being called a Nazi – even by ppl who are really really really dumb – isn’t so fun.
6:21 pm – The ringleader, a CUNY prof who specializes in – you’ll never guess! – social activism on the taxpayer’s dime, can’t figure out Twitter.
6:22 pm – This loathsome creature takes taxpayer money in order to waste students’ time and ensure that they are unemployable.
6:23 pm – His students don’t know how to read or write, but a guy too stupid to use Twitter, count or follow the news, is teaching them how to protest
6:246 pm – This charlatan ADVERTISES: I teach students to make life hell for taxpayers, white ppl and workers. (But not learn anything useful.)
6:24 pm – The others work at HuffPo & Mediaite, under the insane delusion that some day it will read to a paying job. (It won’t, Jenna.)
6:26 pm – To sh*t-for-brains, desperate hysterics: If you put your head on the desk & think really, really, really hard, I be… twitter.com/i/web/status/8…
7:57 pm – No, 14 days, moron. See “Obama Countdown Clock” which I’ve been using for my countdown tweets since LAST JANUARY.… twitter.com/i/web/status/8…
8:49 pm – 14: Angus Johnston’s percentile on the verbal SAT. twitter.com/studentactivis…
8:49 pm – 14: The last age at which girls were nice to Angus Johnston. twitter.com/studentactivis…

Coulter seemed particularly incensed over being called a Nazi, an appellation which actually deserves some consideration.

(It seemed obvious to me that “14!” was part of a countdown and not a secret code word – and that she had simply miscounted – but her critics’ confusion is understandable given Coulter’s prominence in the Alt-Right movement and her ideological affiliation with David Duke.)

Counting

As for counting, well, Coulter needs some lessons.

Her Twitter counteroffensive ignored this self-evident truth:

20 days – 5 days = 15 (not 14) days!

The countdown clock itself read 14 days plus. (It’s always the plus which seems to escape Coulter’s grasp.)

Nevertheless, Coulter has accused Republicans of stupidity, saying, “It’s not even just cowardice on the part of Republicans. It’s abject stupidity. It’s an inability to do math.”

Indeed, her rebuttals merely proved the point of her critics. Coulter’s error could easily be corrected by 1) counting on one’s fingers, 2) accurately reading source material, and 3) reason.

Both literacy and numeracy appear to evade Coulter. She even thinks the Great Depression was a time of unparalleled prosperity for America. Now that’s bad counting.

Reading

Actually reading her source material would have given her the clue. Her justifying tweet contains the answer to her error. Immediately above the countdown clock, the text reads, “we also have the countdown to 12 noon the same day, when inauguration actually occurs.”

countdown-2

In other words, Coulter was using the clock counting down to midnight, not noon (when the inauguration actually takes place). Each countdown is X days plus hours, minutes, and seconds.

In the military, it would be called 14 days and a wake-up, meaning more than 14 days. (A partial day counts as a day.)

Coulter should have used the noon countdown clock to determine the time until Trump’s inauguration (as plainly stated on the clock).

By her own account, for a year Coulter has been counting down to the day of the inauguration, not to the inauguration (and failing to see the difference).

The next day, Coulter – with rapid-fire humorous tweets – attempted to deflect attention from her miscalculation, to no avail (emphasis added):

3:25 pm – 13! (which is not a satanic, Nazi, Klan or reference, Lindsey Ellefson & Angus Johnston, you pathetic morons.)
3:28 pm – 13! Hey @Mediaite! Is it the number of brain cells in Lindsey Ellefson’s head??? https://t.co/une7ya8rUM
3:28 pm – 13! Could it be the jersey number of Russian hockey player Pavel Datsyuk as a secret code to Putin??? Get on this… twitter.com/i/web/status/8…
3:30 pm – 13! Is it the average number of times a day Angus Johnston swears at his parents for naming him Angus? https://t.co/sUwm1PW8Ko
3:30 pm – 13! Hey Angus! Could this be a reference to our 13th president, who had SLAVES??? https://t.co/jivwOYJ6mf
3:32 pm – 13! Is it the average number of years Angus Johnston’s students have to live with their parents after they graduat… twitter.com/i/web/status/8…
3:34 pm – 13! Hey sleuths! It’s *Friday* the 13th! A cryptic message to Jason to put on his hockey mask fire up the chainsaw… twitter.com/i/web/status/8…
3:36 pm – 13! Is it a subtle reference to the number of hours liberals spend lying about me per day??? https://t.co/2P7e7Xq1OU
3:37 pm – 13! Is it a DOG WHISTLE referencing the average number of fake news stories by HuffPo per day? https://t.co/qHzKNmgmNv
3:38 pm – 13! An unlucky number … unless it’s the number of days Obama has left in office!!!!! https://t.co/O8dKPE8DdZ

Reasoning

Humor notwithstanding, Coulter replicated her mistake from the previous day.

Berating her critics for their paucity of brain cells, Coulter showed herself immune from reason.

countdown-1

Let’s read the countdown clock she used.

It reads, “Time until Obama leaves office.”

It gives the days, hours, minutes, and seconds.

Let’s reason: Once the 13 days have expired, there remains over eight hours “until Obama leaves office.”

In other words, more than 13 days (i.e., 13 days plus part of a 14th day). It’s not in 13 days, it’s on the 14th day.

So, Coulter’s critics – and everyone else who knows how to count on their fingers – knows it’s 14 days until Trump becomes president.

(This isn’t like a birthday, which is traditionally marked at midnight, but a legal ceremony with a specific time of implementation.)

Coulter’s critics were rash – but understandably so – to impart a nefarious meaning to Coulter’s “14!” tweet. For her part, Coulter has again demonstrated that she doesn’t handle criticism very well, is quick to justify herself, and loathe to admit error.

Media Advisory: New book released – #NeverTrump: Coulter’s Alt-Right Utopia

#NeverTrump: Coulter’s Alt-Right Utopia explains what Donald Trump’s “New American Revolution” portends and why we should oppose it.

nevertrump

The Alt-Right is a central feature of the Trump movement. The Alt-Right worldview permeates every aspect of the Trump phenomenon, its self-identity, its view of America and the world, and its view of individuals and liberty itself.

Ann Coulter is the high priestess of the Alt-Right and Trump’s consigliere, propagandist, muse, and wannabee consort. (Coulter offers herself up as the model, the quintessential American.)

The Alt-Right has transformed patriotism into an isolationistic nationalism which eschews both foreigners (outside) and immigrants (inside) alike. It redefines the very terms “American” and “citizenship.”

The Alt-Right is the mirror image of leftist social justice warriors.

The New Trump Party also borrows much from the antebellum Know-Nothing Party: anti-immigrant, anti-Catholic, anti-Semitic, nativist, and isolationist.

Ann Coulter = David Duke — In Denial

In an Esquire profile, David Duke, notorious former Klansman and white supremacist, claimed a strong affinity with Ann Coulter, high priestess of the Alt-Right.

ann-coulter-david-duke-in-denial

David Duke said, “Ann Coulter is so savaged by the media, I guess she’s gotta feel like, ‘Well, at least I’m not David Duke!’ But if you really look at what she says, if you read her books, it’s very close to what I’ve been saying.”

Why did Duke call out Coulter? He responded to Coulter’s claim on Real Time (1014/16): “I don’t even think David Duke exists. He appears every four years so that you can use him as a boogeyman.”

Coulter also facetiously claimed, “For all we know, Duke died 20 years ago and the media are using a body double.”

On the very day Duke expressed being ideologically simpatico with Coulter, she again denied Duke’s very existence, writing, “No one even knows if Duke actually exists or is just a phantom produced by the media every four years to smear Republicans.”

There are actually two David Dukes. One was a former Grand Wizard and the other dresses in a miniskirt as she ministers to the Alt-Right.

Coulter’s Colors of the Rainbow

In a fascinating interview with Scottie Nell Hughes, Coulter revealed her racial confusion and racist inclinations. She said, “No normal person thinks of themself as Hispanic. They think of themselves as ‘I’m Mexican,’ ‘I’m Cuban,’ ‘I’m Ecuadorian.’ [Hispanic] is an invention of the political parties.”

coulters-colors-of-the-rainbow

Really? Coulter continued:

“Trump transcended this. He’s appealing to ‘Hispanics’ [Coulter placed air quotes around Hispanics], blacks, Asians, Americans, white Americans.”

If Hispanics don’t think of themselves as Hispanic but of various nationalities, then why is that not true of blacks? Aren’t they Kenyan, or Jamaican, or Haitian, or Nigerian, or …. [fill in the blank]? Yet, Coulter doesn’t deny that they are black. (In fact, she also claims that America still owes blacks for slavery, even those who emigrated after emancipation.) So, why deny that Hispanics are “Hispanic?”

What about whites? Are whites, as Coulter implies, homogenous? Are there no cultural and linguistic differences between Swedes, Polacks, Britons, French, and Italians? Yet, when it suits her, Coulter emphasizes those differences, always in favor of English WASP culture. Moreover, Coulter actively courts “white” votes to the exclusion of non-white ones.

Does anyone say “I’m Asian?” No. They refer to their national origins, whether China, Korea, Japan, Nepal, or elsewhere. Would Coulter suggest “Asia” “is an invention of the political parties?” Hardly.

It’s funny. When Coulter listed peoples to whom Trump appeals, she said: “Hispanics, blacks, Asians, Americans, white Americans.” When she said “Americans,” she quickly corrected herself and qualified it as “white Americans,” almost as if she doesn’t regard non-whites as Americans, or, perhaps more accurately, to emphasize the group of Americans she values most: whites.

Whites are crucial for Coulter’s restoration of a WASP (i.e., white) America.

Apparently, “Hispanics” (don’t forget those air quotes), blacks, Asians and other non-whites aren’t real Americans to Coulter.

David Duke Denial?

Ann Coulter, the queen of the alt-Right, attacked the media for focusing on David Duke and the alt-Right.

david-duke-denial

She wrote: “For all we know, Duke died 20 years ago and the media are using a body double.”

Has Coulter forgotten that David Duke raved over her book, Adios, America! Duke heavily promoted her book for his legion of fans. Moreover, Trump very prominently endorsed Donald Trump for president.

davidduke

Body double? Cute, Ann.

Does @AnnCoulter Love #BLM?

Nativist Ann Coulter recently reaffirmed her view that America “owes blacks” for the “legacy of slavery and Jim Crow.”

Coulter Loves BLM

Black Lives Matter would be proud. Those who value truth cringe.

This is polar opposite of the position she took in 1997 when she (quite accurately) said:

“I don’t understand the principle under which I’m supposed to be responsible for what some white people may have done six generations back. I mean, on that theory we oughta be punishing the children of criminals. We don’t even hold one – the next generation – responsible for what that person’s precise father did, much less some white guy 200 years ago.”[1]

(Indeed, today we don’t even hold the culprit accountable for his own actions.)

Only Blacks Have Civil Rights?

Now, two decades later, Coulter contends that America will be forever in debt to blacks. Coulter’s revised paradigm first emerged in her book, Mugged.[2]

Coulter claimed “civil rights are for blacks” because “We owe black people something, we have the legacy of slavery.” Yes, Coulter has fallen for the cult of victimhood and entitlement which is devastating so much of America today.

Civil rights are not, as Coulter contends, a function of victimization, but rather the consequence of a compact between citizens within a nation. For instance, the Constitution provides the foundation for our civil rights, with equal protections to all under the law. One could say these civil rights complement our universal human rights.

Coulter frequently cites the 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments to the Constitution, as well as the Civil Rights Act of 1964, none of which claim that civil rights are for blacks only. Rather, they apply to all citizens of the United States. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 does not limit civil rights to blacks (it doesn’t even use the word “blacks”), but actually prohibits discrimination based on “race, color, religion, sex, or national origin,” a pretty all-encompassing cohort of the population.

The Amendments and Act Coulter refers to were designed to include blacks – and others – into the pool of individuals whose civil rights are guaranteed. Coulter seemed to understand this in 1997, when she commended California’s Proposition 209[3] “to prohibit racial discrimination, much like the equal protection clause under the Civil Rights Act.”[4]

Legacy of Slavery and Jim Crow?

Coulter is simply wrong.

Dysfunctional blacks communities in America today are not the result of the “legacy of slavery and Jim Crow.” Rather, they are the direct consequence of the legacy of identity politics[5] and the welfare state.[6]

For fifty years, every failed big city has been run by Democrats pursuing liberal policies. Chicago, Detroit, Baltimore, Milwaukee, and Washington, DC, spring to mind. Their liberal policies and perspectives have wreaked havoc on those communities, often erupting in violence, riots, and murder.

This is irrefutable,[7] yet Coulter continues her own version of racial demagoguery which acts as if the Union lost the Civil War and the Civil Rights Movement failed.

Coulter tacitly supports Black Lives Matter ideology by promoting a fallacious set of root causes for contemporary cultural pathologies within the black community. In effect, Coulter contributes to the escalating racial divide among Americans.

Black Lives Matter seized upon a false racial narrative in Ferguson[8] which literally fueled fires as the city erupted in flames.[9] Truth succumbed to a racial hoax.[10] Coulter perpetuates the core foundation of that hoax.

Strangely, Coulter once accurately condemned the racial grievance industry[11] and outed white liberals for their complicity and collusion.[12] Nevertheless, Coulter continues to grossly distort racial reality[13] and claim that civil rights are only for blacks and that blacks, in effect, have special rights. Apparently she never heard of Rev. King’s vision of a colorblind society.[14]

Coulter’s Own Racial Grievance Industry

As it turns out, Coulter is actually in the vanguard of a white version of the racial grievance industry[15] which asserts that America’s changing racial demographics will destroy America[16] as we once knew it and that we must restore a pristine WASP (white) America.[17]

Coulter’s nativist and xenophobic[18] views – fully expressed in Adios, America! – demonize all immigrants,[19] particularly Third World immigrants, especially Hispanics,[20] and those views have permeated Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.

Indeed, Coulter trumpets the advent of a New Trump Party[21] remarkably similar to the defunct Know-Nothing Party of antebellum America, one which is isolationist, anti-immigrant, anti-Semitic,[22] and anti-Catholic.[23]

Coulter has repeatedly likened Trump’s fight for freedom for American workers to Lincoln’s fight for liberty for enslaved blacks. Strikingly, Coulter recently confused the Confederate flag for the American flag,[24] raising the question of which side she would have supported in that war.

It is possible that Coulter is compensating for her xenophobic, nativist views[25] (anti-immigrant, anti-Semitic, anti-Catholic) by extoling her love for blacks.

Regardless of her motives, her views suffuse the Trump campaign and threaten American values of liberty for all irrespective of race, gender, and class. We are all “endowed by our Creator with certain inalienable rights” because “all men are created equal.”

Let us all return to our roots – the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution – and reject the nonsense of Black Lives Matter, the New Trump Party, and Ann Coulter.
