40 excuses and a mule
Ann Coulter

October 28, 2004

White liberals have been indulging their fantasies of violence against conservatives lately – physically attacking conservatives, ransacking Bush-Cheney headquarters (though not any NRA headquarters, I note). The white wife of vice presidential candidate John Edwards recently warned of riots unless Kerry is elected.

In the midst of this rash of violence by white liberals, this week Al Gore admonished a group of blacks not to engage in violence over the election. Perhaps Gore should have saved that speech for a convocation of members.

And Democrats wonder why they have to ask white people to hold "African-Americans for Kerry-Edwards" signs at their rallies – as happened in St. Petersburg, Fla., last Saturday. The Kerry campaign is hemorrhaging black voters like teenaged girls fleeing an R. Kelly house party. None of the Democrats' top black leaders – Jesse, Al, Bill Clinton – has been able to stem the tide.

Here's the deal on politics and race in America: Republicans don't need black voters, but they want them. Democrats don't want black voters, but they need them. Blacks have been the Democrats' most loyal voters, typically giving the party upward of 90 percent of their vote. But Democrats ignore blacks.

That's according to none other than the Rev. Jesse Jackson, who said precisely that in a speech to "Campaign for America's Future" at the Democratic National Convention this summer.

Now, with the election less than a week away, the Kerry campaign is dashing off to every black church in the country. Bill Clinton had to interrupt an important sponge bath with someone named "Bunny" to come to Kerry's rescue in Philadelphia. (Possible slogan: "Kerry – The Same as Clinton, Without the Burning Sensation.")

The Democrats' inspired 11th-hour message to black voters is: Here are your crumbs, your scraps, your measly handouts. Too bad you're so childish, incompetent and dependent, huh? Now run along and cast your vote for the guy with the "D" next to his name and we'll see you in four years, 'K? Buh-bye, now.

With no fanfare, President Bush has placed black stars like Condoleezza Rice and Colin Powell in top positions in his administration. Kerry waited for complaints that the only black people in his campaign were setting up folding chairs at rallies before finding blacks for any prominent positions. (Another campaign slogan: "John Kerry: Pretending to Fight for Blacks Since Very Recently.")

Among loony liberal ideas polling especially badly among blacks is the Democrats' gusto for gay marriage.

Gay marriage is a tricky issue for the Democrats due to the fact that – like taxes, defense and education – they are forced to lie about their position when running for office. In other words, Democrats are gay marriage supporters trapped in the bodies of candidates who oppose gay marriage. And no issue-reassignment surgery can help them.

By contrast, blacks – like Republicans and most Americans in general – not only believe gay marriage is wrong, but are willing to publicly state this belief.

Bush opposes gay marriage. Kerry is for it – and he has always been consistent on that by taking every position imaginable on gay marriage. Kerry's got more gay marriage positions than the Kama-sutra, including the "yawning dog," the "courtesan's dilemma" and the "flip-flopping weasel."

Campaigning in Missouri about a month ago, Kerry began the day saying he was opposed to Missouri's constitutional amendment defining marriage as between a man and a woman. By the end of the day, Kerry was claiming he supported the amendment and, indeed, that his position on gay marriage was identical to Bush's.

Later, Kerry retracted his support for the Missouri marriage amendment, telling a gay magazine that he hadn't read the amendment and, in fact, he opposed it. (More campaign slogan ideas: "John Kerry won't just take a stand on the tough issues – he'll take two or three of them!")

When Kerry's strategy of being both for gay marriage and against it failed to fool blacks, he sent Jesse Jackson out to black churches to tell the parishioners to set aside their views on gay marriage and vote for Kerry anyway. What are blacks getting out of this deal again?

Compensating for his progressive views on gay marriage, Kerry supports federal funding for partial-birth abortions. Taxpayer-supported abortion on demand should make "Emily's List" feminists happy, but it has not been a big hit with black ministers.

Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, was quite explicit about using abortion as a tool to reduce the minority population. She said the goal of Planned Parenthood was to "give certain dysgenic groups in our population their choice of segregation or sterilization." Even today, talk to any white liberal about abortion and within 60 seconds he will raise the black "overpopulation" problem.

We hear a lot about the 2 million people in America's jails and how many of them are black, but we rarely talk about the 35 to 40 million abortions since Roe v. Wade and how many of those babies were black. When your position on black abortion is identical to the Klan's, maybe it's time to reconsider.

Kerry's supporters are reaching out to blacks by demanding that black cabdrivers in New York City who support Bush be fined and suspended. When taxi driver Etzer Jerome told his sensitive Upper West Side passenger he had voted for Bush, she demanded that he pull over and let her out, yelling at him: "How can a black man vote for Bush?" and "I'm going to f--- you!" She then filed a complaint against Jerome with the Taxi and Limousine Commission alleging that Jerome had "verbally harassed her." He was fined $500 and given a three-week suspension.

On the bright side, the Democrats offer black voters loads and loads of meaningless abstractions that will have absolutely no effect on their lives. "Jobs," for example. (Just not any of the important jobs in a Kerry administration.)

Democrats' extravagant claims about creating "jobs" are as credible as their claims that they will allow the wheelchair-bound to walk. Among the jobs that are currently not available to Americans are these being performed in China under a free-trade bill voted for by John Kerry. (New campaign slogan: "John Kerry: Betraying America Since 1971.")

And apparently, black voters can also look forward to a lot of patronizing demagoguery from the Democrats, such as the claim that Republicans maliciously suppressed the black vote in Florida in 2000.

Kerry claims Republicans disenfranchised 1 million black voters in Florida in 2000, but neglects to mention that after extensive and expensive hearings, the U.S. Civil Rights Commission failed to name a single one of them. Can you name just one out of that "million," Sen. Kerry? We've found more WMDs in Iraq than we've found disenfranchised blacks in Florida.

Indeed – to the contrary! – in 2000, blacks composed 11 percent of registered voters in Florida, but made up 17 percent of those who actually voted. If that's how Republicans "suppress" the black vote, blacks are better off when Republicans attack them than when Democrats pretend to be nice to them.

I think ann is a very confused and angry person. It appears she despises black people. Black people are more than capable in knowing where their best interests lie, and it is not with the Republican Party.

When our finest youth are dying in iraq, bin laden is planning his next attack, and decent paying jobs are being shipped out of the country, is there really any time for any american to worry about whether two homosexuals or two lesbians get married?

Actually, I did bring this up once here. 13 million black babies denied life since Roe v Wade. Noone here even cared as I recall. So much for Black values. Just think of all the 'representin' that was, and still is, being lost, and will never be, because of this barbaric practice of making Black children we cruelly deny life to, and suck the brains out of and discard their unwanted bodies in waste cans.

The Black man or woman who may have come up with the cure for aids may have been killed off as a child in an abortion, not even so much as a respect for his or her very own right to life. Black voter numbers reduced exponentially by a base number of 13 million. THAT is alot of power we'll never see.

We'll never know due to this horrible genocide of black children. We don't care.
This conservative whore has been called the republican slut bc she has been linked to many republican leaders married and single. Ive seen her vile, racist, agenda that she spews on every show shes on. This is the woman who got pies thrown at her while she was giving a speech. She is one of the many drones for Bush and his party. All she does is write racist books so she has no power or authority that disrupts my life. I pay her no attention, she wants to get people all hot and bothered so she can spew her evil and I dont acknowledge bullshit.

I find it interesting that this A. Coulter person had a lot reasons to vote _against_ kerry, but not a single reason to vote _for_ bush.

Lower taxes, pro-gun, foreign policy.

I can agree with those three.

Can't agree with Kerry on pretty much anything.

Anything I don't like about Bush's domestic policies I can fight in Congress.

Please xplain what you like about Bush's foreign policy...I'm curious...

Simple - there are three arguably 3 major ways to combat Islamofascism or terrorism: appeasement, dentente or war.

The first two have been tried & failed (Carter, Clinton/Bush I). The third seems to be working.

Carter (I was over there for this and Reagans 1st term in the Middle East) weak or "appeasement" policy led to the overthrow of the Shah and the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan.

Clinton/Bush I - you get attacked and lob a few missiles didn't work so hot either.

Bush II's seems to be overall working pretty good despite various mistakes.

Throw in everyone I know in that neck of the woods at the sharp end be they friends or family and what they're telling me (some are civilian contractors & some military + when I flew out there last Xmas talked to anyone who had gone in) they didn't want Kerry and preferred Bush.

Much like the barrio whether the micro or macro level (nations etc) - violent people respect only violence.

Kinda like a bet I could never get any of my more liberal friends to ever take down here in SD when talking a different issue:

Let's go to Barrio Logan and I'll wear a jacket with "Citizens For Concealed Carry" and you wear a jacket with "Handgun Control Inc." and see who gets mugged first.

It's human nature plain & simple. The first two approaches can work with rational people. Violent people tend not to be rational so the third option becomes the one you need to use.

I always wondered if Reagan had got the nomination in 1976 (which he came close) rather than 1980 - would Gulf War I, Gulf War II, supporting Iraq against Iran (since Iran would've remained a pro US ally) ever have happened?

Sure a what if question but it seems thru history that if you appease or appear in their minds to appease certain types of leaders etc. then you merely postpone a smaller conflict into a larger conflict later.

But's that's just my two cents. Wink
