Coulter Belittles Carson and Fiorina – as a black and a woman

Ann Coulter has proven herself to be nothing more than a political hack shilling for Donald Trump (and promoting herself and her book).

CarsonFiorina

Yesterday, Coulter revealed her true feelings about blacks, women, the GOP, and the electorate. Moreover, she justified Trump at every turn while attacking his chief competitors, without regard for either truth or decency. Just as she did with Romney, Coulter defended Trump’s many flip-flips, saying, “I think these [criticisms of Trump’s flip-flopping] are all unfair.”[1]

According to Coulter, Ben Carson and Carly Fiorina are so popular with the people because they are merely novelty candidates: one is a black conservative, the other a female conservative. Yes, Coulter’s lowest common denominator is race and gender. Identity politics is at the heart of the Ann Coulter we have come to know.[2] (Do conservatives really have to emulate Hillary Clinton and the Left’s obsession with identity politics?)[3]

For many years, Coulter has promoted racist and sexist stereotypes[4] which clearly demonstrate how she views blacks, women, the GOP, and the average American voter.

Ben Carson – an Unqualified Black

Asked why she has been so critical of Carson, Coulter caustically blurted, “We’re so happy we have a little black Republican [Ben Carson].” Amazing! Coulter really thinks Carson’s surge in the polls is simply because he is black?

Coulter added, “Oh, we have a woman who’s a Republican, oh, it’s so amazing. Oh, we have a black who’s a Republican. They don’t know what their positions are!” That’s not true! Carson and Fiorina have given many interviews and press conferences espousing their views.

In effect, Coulter is saying that Carson’s only qualification is being black and Fiorina’s only qualification is being a woman. Apart from their racial/gender traits, Coulter thinks that these two individuals are unqualified.

Coulter actually denies the obvious! Ben Carson has phenomenally high favorability ratings. People like Carson. They recognize his genuineness, honesty, and integrity. They appreciate his humble, soft-spoken demeanor, his clarity of thought, and his humor. One might call him the ultimate anti-establishment, anti-Trump candidate.

Carly Fiorina – an Unqualified Girl

Asked about the Fox debate with the lower tier of candidates, Coulter said that she was unimpressed and regarded it as a snooze-fest (feigning an exaggerated snore). A record-setting television audience clearly disagreed.

As for Coulter’s opinion of Fiorina, “No, I have not been impressed with her. … Not only is she wrong on [anchor babies], she’s bossy!”

Bossy? This is the best Coulter can come up with? A sexist cliché?

If anything, Coulter and Trump are the bossy ones. Why not just call Carson an uppity black and Fiorina just a girl. Oh, but she does!

Asked what she thought of CNN revising their debate criteria to conform with reality, Coulter smugly smirked, “No, they’re adding 11 because she’s a girl!”

A girl? Coulter tried that stunt a few weeks ago.[5] (It didn’t work then, either.)

Fiorina is a successful businesswoman who has travelled the world extensively, met with world leaders far more productively than Hillary Clinton ever did, and communicates well her views and her vision for America. She is, also, perhaps quicker on her feet than Coulter. (Oops!)

Like Carson, Fiorina is not a “token” anything. Fiorina trounced the other candidates in her Fox debate. She won the debate and she deserves to be in the top tier in the next debate based upon her performance and her high ranking in the polls. Even her fellow candidates agree.

Ann Coulter – an Unqualified Hack

But Coulter has her own agenda: promoting herself and reshaping America into the image she envisions. As she has done for almost two decades, Coulter has decided who the best GOP candidate is and she is willing to foist that candidate on America regardless of what the rest of America thinks about it.[6]

Ironically, she backed George W. Bush long before his political positions were known (he had a huge war chest at the time), but now she belittles Carson, claiming no one knows his positions.

Coulter has a no-holds-barred, no-quarter-given approach to political discourse. She attacks anyone and everyone who threaten either her agenda or her Chosen One.[7] She defended Romney against all his foes[8] and is now doing so for Trump.[9]

But, truth is the very first casualty in Coulter’s campaign.[10] She gets so many things wrong![11] And, to satisfy her desperate need to have her own way, Coulter willfully risks giving the Democrats the victory in 2016.[12]

Will Coulter’s hubris be the death of America?[13]
