Ann Coulter Compares Trayvon Martin Media Coverage to 'Lynch Mob,' KKK

★~DoctorWhoGuru~★ 2012/04/01 02:44:24

Ann Coulter's disdain for the mainstream media reached new levels on Friday as she compared news coverage of the death and subsequent police investigation of Trayvon Martin's killer, George Zimmerman, to a lynch mob not seen since the Ku Klux Klan.


A few Democratic politicians have made statements about Martin's death, including President Obama and Rep. Bobby Rush (D-IL), who wore a hoodie on the floor of the House of Representatives on Wednesday; a number of Republicans, including presidential candidates Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum have expressed sadness over the death, as well, though Santorum also blasted Obama's comments.Appearing on fellow conservative Laura Ingraham's radio show, Coulter said, "I mean it is a lynch mob. This isn't how we try cases in this country. And you know, the last time you saw this sort of thing on a regular basis was of course again from the Democratic Party and the Democratic Party’s outgrowth, the KKK."

"So, I guess we shouldn’t be surprised that we get this from the Democrats," Coulter continued. "They have never bought into the criminal justice system where you have, you know, grand jurors and a procedure where evidence is vetted, and police look at it and prosecutors and grand jurors."

Criticism of media coverage about the case has come frequently from the right, with Bill O'Reillysaying, "That's what's wrong with the media in this country; no longer the facts matter. Accusations are enough to condemn folks and press wants the story and doesn't care who gets hurt in the process. Allegations become front page news no matter how flimsy they are."

Rush Limbaugh has accused the media of playing up the racial aspect of the case and said that they drummed up "fake outrage" in this case, as they did during the heat of his Sandra Flukecontroversy.

"The country is never as roiled and as agitated as the left is. They can succeed in upsetting people. But the object lesson here is to, from this point forward, just don't believe them," Limbaugh said earlier this week.

    She's 100% correct. The media and the race baiters will not be satisfied until Zimmerman is dead.

    Ann Coulter is a White Supremacist that has spoken many times at the Counsel of Conservative Citizens which is the corporate branch of the KKK.

    "In her latest foaming-mouth tome — Guilty: Liberal “Victims” and Their Assault on America, released on Jan. 6 — Coulter spends the better part of three pages defending a group called the Council of Conservative Citizens (CCC), which The New York Times had described as a “thinly veiled white supremacist organization.” Coulter begs to differ. The CCC, Coulter opines, is “a conservative group” that has unfairly been branded as racist “because some of the directors of the CCC had, decades earlier, been leaders of a segregationist group.” “There is no evidence on its Web page that the modern incarnation of the CCC supports segregation,” she says. “Apart from some aggressive reporting on black-on-white crimes — the very crimes that are aggressively hidden by the establishment media — there is little on the CCC website suggesting” that the group is racist. Indeed, its main failing is “containing members who had belonged to a segregationist group thirty years earlier.”

    Coulter could hardly be more wrong. And even if she can’t find time to read beyond a page of the CCC’s website, she really ought to know — after all, the organization where s...





    Ann Coulter is a White Supremacist that has spoken many times at the Counsel of Conservative Citizens which is the corporate branch of the KKK.

Indeed, its main failing is “containing members who had belonged to a segregationist group thirty years earlier.”

    Coulter could hardly be more wrong. And even if she can’t find time to read beyond a page of the CCC’s website, she really ought to know — after all, the organization where she frequently speaks, the Conservative Political Action Committee, has publicly banned the CCC from its annual gathering because it is racist. Also in the late 1990s, Jim Nicholson, then-chairman of the Republican National Committee, asked GOP members to stay away from the CCC because of its “racist and nationalist views.”

    How could conservative Republicans be inspired to say such ugly things? Let us count the ways.

    The CCC’s columnists have written that black people are “a retrograde species of humanity,” and that non-white immigration is turning the U.S. population into a “slimy brown mass of glop.” Its website has run photographic comparisons of pop singer Michael Jackson and a chimpanzee. It opposes “forced integration” and decries racial intermarriage. It has lambasted black people as “genetically inferior,” complained about “Jewish power brokers,” called gay people “perverted sodomites,” and even named the late Lester Maddox, the baseball bat-wielding, arch-segregationist former governor of Georgia, “Patriot of the Century.”

    Seems ironic she would mention a lynch mob because it's that type of vigilante attitude that led to Trayvon Martin's murder in the first place http://zombielogicblog.blogsp...

    Well lets see, her dislike for black, homosexuals, Hispanics for starters. Yeah you could even call her dislike blatant prejudice, if not out right hatred.

    Really? show one example where she says she does not like Blacks or Hispanics.
    Homosexuality, does not fit into the same category as race. Believing someones life choices are wrong is not hate.
    I will wait patiently while you look for her hate filled words.

    It is the way she puts it. Listen to this. She blatantly divides and vilifes between blacks. "our blacks are better than their blacks". If that isn't a patently racist comment there is no such thing.



    And just for grins and giggles I suggest you get your daily fix of Ann Coulter by reading her book Demonic. He condensending attitude towards liberals and illustrating them as a "mob of black and hispanics" is a more than telling attitude of he attitude towards Hispanics and Blacks.

    As far as homosexuality, it is NOT A LIFE CHOICE. Homosexuality is an ingrained part do the persons psycho-sexual makeup and cannot be changed. Her blatant prejudice against homosexuals is more than enough to almost be declared a hate crime.

    There was not a word of racism in what she said. Everything she said was spot on.
    And Joy Behar? The biggest racist idiot in the world. Surely you can do better.

    We have had the homosexual talk. Homosexuals are not born homosexual, you will never convince me otherwise.
    So you can stop trying.
    When a person disagrees with your LIFE CHOICES, it does not mean they hate you, it means they disagree.
    I don't have to rubber stamp all your choices.
    I have EVERY RIGHT , and so does she to say we are being fed a load of crap.

    Yeah, Coulter, African Americans know all about lynchings since THEY experienced so many from KKK "dixiecrat" conservatives that called themselves Democrats then. Wonder if she got some tips from this white supremist that was at the CPAC meeting holding a conference for the right. CPAC Supremist

    this has nothing to really do with blacks or whites.....Approximately 330,000 "white soldiers" died on the Union side.

    There was approximately 360,000 total Union deaths in the war, first source.
    Approximately 30,000 African-Americans died in the war fighting for the Union. Enjoy your blessings...our world would be better off.

    The civil war has been over for a long time, however I dare say many more whites died than their black counterparts in the civil war.
    You seem to forget the black folks that fought on the Confederate side.
    Bottom line, it's people like you, Obama, Sharpton, Jackson, Lee, Waters etc....that keep the imaginary racism going.
