Ann Coulter Quotes: Sparks Race Debate Saying ‘Civil Rights Are For Blacks,’ ‘Treated Like Children’

“I think the way liberals have treated blacks like children and many of their policies have been harmful to blacks, at least they got the beneficiary group right,” Coulter said. “There is the legacy of slavery and Jim Crow laws. We don’t owe the homeless. We don’t owe feminists. We don’t owe women who are desirous of having abortions or gays who want to get married to one another. That’s what civil rights has become for much of the left.”
“Immigrant rights are not civil rights?” Stephanopoulos asked.
“No,” Coulter responded, “No. I think civil rights are for blacks. What have we done to the immigrants? We owe black people something. We have a legacy of slavery. Immigrants haven’t even been in this country.”

Yup, the woman is nuts. But, probably not much more than a significant chunk of the population.

I love Ann Coulter.

She has managed to make a career out of just being nasty, it’s admirable in a weird way.

I don’t thinks so. I think she is just playing to her audience, and she knows exactly what they want to hear.

My opinion as well.

I agree that she’s playing to her audience, but as I see it there are two choices: 1. That she believes what she says, which means she is really mentally ill.  or 2. That she knows that what she’s saying is completely false but will be accepted by many, which means she is exceedingly evil.

Take your pick.

She is such a negative, far-right, cold, heartless, bitch.  Yet, I find her strangely attractive, as well.  This is a point in favor of her being crazy, as I tend to find crazy women strangely attractive.

Well, she may be evil, but that doesn’t necessarily rule out crazy, too.  Though, I have found that, by far, most crazy people are not evil.

I gotta admit, me too. A lot of men do, it seems.

There is a stereotype that crazy women are wonderful in bed. (Off topic anecdote.)

To make clear, I don’t believe anything Ann Coulter says, she is just good at doing what she does IMO.

Off the wall flaming comments have been in vogue since Joe Pine created the method in the late 50’s. say it loud; say it crazy and people will listen. Watch a Hitler speech and watch the crowd reaction. It’s best to listen to it in the original German BTW. Coulter, Limbaugh, Beck, O’Reilly and their ilk have been using the same formula and it works, well. Statements don’t have to have one scintilla of truth to be believed, just incite the crowd to anger, and watch the fun. Meanwhile the young neocons are mesmerized by her in-your-face attitude and looks (although she seems to be slipping a bit, ugh does that sound sexist?). Don’t forget that she constantly reminds them that she is an attorney! I once picked up one of her books, “How to Talk to a Liberal”, and it was filled with inconsistencies and neocon drivel, much like her editorials in the newspapers. Why Bill Maher likes her I’ll never know.

Are you kidding? Coulter, Rove, Limbaugh, etc. are geniuses.  They know their audience, and can manipulate their thoughts and actions almost at will.  Now their agenda is an evil one, but you can’t fault them for their effectiveness. I mean they literally can get people to believe 1+1=3.

They say that opposites attract.  But maybe it’s just hormones. Bipolars are known for being hyper sexual.
