Nutjob Coulter Continues His Lies About Obama "Madrassa"



Coulter Says Obama Is ‘Specially Situated’ To Racially Profile Because He Attended A Madrassa


Following Nigerian Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab’s failed attempt to blow up a U.S. airliner over Detroit, right-wing pundit Ann Coulter has dedicated the last few days to reviving the myth that Obama attended a radical Islamic madrassa as a child in Indonesia. According to Coulter, that puts his administration in a unique position to institute racial profiling to prevent future attacks.


Coulter began the week on Fox News’ The O’Reilly Factor deceptively insisting that since Obama attended madrassas and has brown skin, that means that "if anyone can say we’re going to look for radical Islamists, it ought to be President Obama." On the December 30 edition of Fox News’ Glenn Beck, Coulter once again promoted the madrassa lie as a way to justify and encourage racial profiling by the Obama administration:


…If anything, I mean — I mean, they kept using it as a selling point that Obama would throw Islamic radicals on their hind legs when they look up and they see someone who studies with [sic: studied at] madrassas and they see the "Great Satan" has a president with a brown face and the world is going to love us. [...]


And like I say, Obama can be doing more than Bush. He is specially situated that way, as having gone to madrassas as a child, not being a white male, which is, you know, the height of political incorrectness, but just the contrary, we’re moving in exactly doing the — making — repeating the worst mistakes of the Bush administration.


Media Matters points out that the madrassa lie, which was initially reported as truth in Insight Magazine and then promoted on Fox & Friends, was debunked back in 2007 by CNN. Though Fox News was forced to "clarify" its report two years ago, no one from Fox jumped in to correct or challenge Coulter’s claims this week.


Back in 2006, Coulter argued that profiling Muslims is justified because it’s just like "profiling the Klan." Despite the growing chorus of right-wingers exploiting last week’s failed terrorist attack to renew their call for racial and ethnic profiling, data shows such tactics represent "a flawed law enforcement tactic that diverts precious anti-terrorism resources, alienates potential allies in the anti-terrorism struggle, and is inconsistent with cherished notions of freedom and equality."

    What I found interesting about this bout with terrorism, Obama takes days to make a statement on it, but the Whitehouse took just hours to respond to Cheney's remarks. Just where the hell are their priorities?

    They sure responded quickly to the Christmas day crotch bomber. They stopped the interrogation after 58 minutes. Then read him his Myranda rights, and appointed him an attorney.

    Unlike someone else we know, look up her birth certificate, it's available. You could always ask Bob Guccione, Jr. and former New York City Council President Andrew Stein(Democrat) about Ann, since they both also have dated her.

    I don't actually buy the "Coulter is a man" stuff. Coulter is a disgusting hateful person regardless of gender. The only reason I play with it is that it is only slightly LESS nonsensical than the birthers.

    And I guess you missed it. Here's proof of the President's Birth in Hawaii, as confirmed by the Governor of Hawaii, the United States Congress, and former vice president dick cheney:

    I trust you will post a copy of Coulter's birth certificate. Don't come back until you do.

    That's a computer enhanced copy your showing. As far as Coulter's you can find it on your own. The site I located it on requires a fee. Since Obama's lawyers have all of his documents sealed, I don't think you can give me a site to go to.
    Oh, her birthdate is 12/8/1961 in New York

    Why does he hide everything from medical records, school records and his real birth certificate? I didn't say he wasn't American, I'm only wondering what he's hiding!
    Occidental College, Columbia and Harvard, and all we know is he was President of the Harvard Law Review. We also know Dr. Kalid al-Mansour went to Percy Sutton to get Obama into Harvard. You know Kalid al-Mansour? He mentored the original founding members of the Black Panthers. Want to guess if al-Mansour is Christian or Muslim?
