In the fall of 2011 we quit thinking of Ann Coulter in any terms other than a sporadically useful, but generally inconsistent, establishment GOP talking head. In short, a “Romneybot”.
A recent article reminds us not only why it was so easy to come to that conclusion, but also why this ex-girlfriend of Bill Maher is actually a raving Moonbat.
Before reading what she actually wrote in a recent article entitled “Eyes On The Prize – Chris McDaniel Supporters Should Work To Take Back The Senate“, it should be absolutely necessary to remind ourselves of her book topic:
“Mugged – Racial Demagoguery From The Seventies To Obama”.
Why is this book so profoundly relevant to the article she has penned? Because the entire premise of her McDaniel article is, well, filled with racial demagoguery.
Here’s an excerpt (emphasis mine):
[…] “It also doesn’t look great having alleged Republican activists claiming that any votes from blacks in a GOP primary were fraudulent. It so happens that Cochran has always won a fair portion of the black vote–and the Democrat vote”.
Setting aside the elitist framing of the words “alleged Republican activists“, because we all know that only people of her high brow approved caliber are real Republican activists right? How does she make the leap from fraudulent democrat votes, the actual substance of the issue at hand, to “blacks in a GOP primary”?
The jump there is filled with racial projection, no? We have not witnessed any of the McDaniel supporters question the skin color of any fraudulent voter, only the registered party affiliation.
The only issue they have raised is the political affiliation of the fraudulent voter; because it’s the affiliation that renders the voter fraudulent, not the color of the voter’s skin.
Yet somehow that seems to escape Ms. Coulter. Somewhat strange considering her self-proclaimed skillset around “racial demagoguery”.
[…] In Cochran’s last election without Barack Obama on the ticket, he won 85 percent of the vote–and Mississippi is half-Democrat and nearly 40 percent black. Even in his most recent election in 2008, when Obama was on the ticket, Cochran won 40,000 more votes than John McCain–a pretty good estimate of how many blacks voted for Cochran.
But it’s really fantastic to have McDaniel supporters out there denouncing Cochran for getting blacks to vote for him.
Again, with the non sequitur. Who is denouncing Cochran for “getting blacks to vote for him”? No-one.
From the outset, the McDaniel campaign has been, and continues to be, concerned about “fraudulent ballots”, or “fraudulent votes” cast against state law by Democrats, who voted in the Democrat Primary, and then voted again in a GOP runoff.
Nowhere in this challenge, of which there is much at stake, is there a remote mention of race by the McDaniel team, with the sole exception of rebutting charges of racism levied falsely -and paid for- by the Ann Coulter establishment GOP toward Chris McDaniel.
She polishes off the diatribe with even more evidence of her commitment to the type of demagoguery she rails against:
Why shouldn’t Cochran ask black people for their votes in a primary? The Republican Party was once, and for some still is, the natural political home for black Mississippians.
Again, who said Cochran shouldn’t “ask black people for their votes in a primary”?
No-one. The issue was Cochran shouldn’t ask Democrat primary voters to support his primary run off if they had already voted in the Democrat primary….. and he certainly shouldn’t hire people to pay registered Democrat voters $15 each to violate the law on his behalf.
It’s a matter of voter fraud, the Republican party was once, and for some still is, against.
Will the last conservative inside the beltway please grab the flag on your way out?
We need to bleach a couple more for a few days while we scout another venue….
