Ann Coulter is back. The conservative Fox News commentator emerged on The View Thursday to promote her new book, “Mugged,” and finally met her match in Whoopi Goldberg.
In this new tome she, as if on cue, slams President Obama as having abandoned black Americans and posits that the OJ Simpson verdict was a great thing for America. While I’m sure Ms. Coulter is trying to say something she believes to be important in this latest book, I can’t for the life of me figure out what that might be.
When prompted by Joy Behar to explain what she meant by the incendiary charges made in her book she attempted to explain by declaring, “What I am trying to say is race mongering has been very bad for America, liberals use it to promote causes that have nothing to do with blacks and in fact harm blacks. And that excellent lead in you just gave, with OJ, I think that was the movement, having lived near New York City in the 70′s and 80′s, which was the golden era, it was Trayvon Martin and Duke Lacrosse case every day.”
Needless to say the OJ Simpson remarks didn’t sit too well with Whoopi who asked Ms. Coulter to explain herself. Coulter Replied, “Millions of white people watching with the equivalent of New York, we use the Brooklyn juries who simply would not convict even guilty black criminals.”
At this point Coulter attempted to distance herself from the race factor of her statements and moved onto her more typical motives: partisan politics. Coulter stated this is not a book about black people; this is a book about white liberals.
Whoopi, still perplexed by Coulter’s thought process, stated that she believed her facts were sketchy at best. Whoopi then asked “tell me what you know about being black…I mean, you’re saying that because liberals have abandoned black people now–what? I don’t get it. I don’t understand.” To which Coulter had the audacity to say, “I don’t think that liberals ever cared about black people.”
This dialogue carried on for quite some time and got heated on both sides, Whoopi got aggravated and Ann got defensive, because let’s face it, Ann gets defensive. Whether Ann Coulter is writing a new book or just spouting off on Fox News one thing is certain; Ann Coulter is a radical and believes every word she spews regardless of the consequences.
