Ann Coulter: Liberals are Presidential Assassins and Racists
October 23, 2009
(ChattahBox)—Conservative pundit Ann Coulter appeared on Headline News Joy Behar’s program last night armed with her usual bag of offensive statements ramped up to achieve maximum shock value. And she managed to malign liberals, as terrorists, presidential assassins and racists, within a few moments of heated chatter with Behar.
With the tone of the right-wing dialogue currently dominated by the bizarre rants and conspiracy theories of Glenn Beck, Coulter must have realized she needs to step up her attacks to a new level of crazy.
When Behar asked Coulter to comment on the recent Secret Service report of an alarming rise in threats against President Obama since he took office, she denied the claim outright. She then proceeded to say well all presidential assassins are liberals:
COULTER: “I don’t know what the evidence is. I would be shocked if there were more threats against Obama than there were against Bush. I think they may be more aggressive about investigating it.” [...]
COULTER:”As I have not only witnessed in my own life but described in “Guilty”, every presidential assassination or attempted presidential assassination was committed by some sort of left-wing loon, communist, anarchist, communitarian’s, yes they were or they had no politics at all.”
An exasperated Behar notes the absurdity of Coulter’s claim saying, presidential assassins are murderers not liberals. Coulter then digs in and claims the only threats against President Obama would come from a progressive group, like MoveOn.org. She also brands home grown terrorists as liberals. When Behar interjects that threats against Obama have increased, because of his race, Coulter responds that makes sense, because liberals are racists:
BEHAR: Home grown terrorists are also another group we have to worry about here.
COULTER: “OK, but they are all liberals, so if Obama gets assassinated— [...]
COULTER: “If something happens to him [Obama] it will be because of MoveOn.org.” [...]
COULTER: “Liberals are racists and my evidence of that is how liberals are going after Charlie Rangel but not Chris Dodd. The way they are going after Gov. Paterson.”
