Conservative talking head and author Ann Coulter is no stranger to causing controversy with her off-the-wall statements towards her usual liberal and Democratic targets. Warring with anyone who doesn’t jive with her hard stances, the Mugged: Racial Demagoguery from the Seventies to Obama writer has stirred up the pot once again by attacking President Barack Obama’s so-called Black militancy – and even stooped to calling Obama’s persona fraudulent as a guest on conservative radio program The Mark Levin Show, reports Real Clear Politics.
“Obama is such a fraud,” Coulter said. “He grew up in a “Beverly Hills, 90210” existence, but he’s just desperate to have this angry, Black persona. It’s rather like reading about, you know, Hitler’s musings on his Germanic identity. You know, he graduated from this fancy, fancy school in Hawaii, voted recently the greenest school in America. And yet, when he wants to, he just turns it on and suddenly we’ve got Malcolm X speaking to us.”
Coulter, with her foot already on the gas, goes even further and claims that70 percent of President Obama’s Twitter followers are fake and then added a curious, if poorly stated, factoid saying, “this is a large part of why we now have more child molesters than racists in America.” She then vaguely suggests that the only effect of being Black is that you’re more apt as an African-American to receive benefits such as government assistance or gain positions in lofty institutions by way of affirmative action.
Keep in mind that Ann Coulter just released the aforementioned Mugged book and has been making the media rounds. This could all be seen as a tactic to drum up controversy and interest in her latest title. Or, she could just be a little touched in the head.
