Coulter: Without affirmative action, Rep. Waters couldn't get a job "that didn't involve wearing a paper hat"
In her August 9 column, right-wing pundit Ann Coulter wrote of African-American Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA):
Congresswoman Maxine Waters had parachuted into Connecticut earlier in the week to campaign against [Sen. Joseph I.] Lieberman because he once expressed reservations about affirmative action, without which she would not have a job that didn't involve wearing a paper hat. Waters also considers Joe "soft" on the issue of the CIA inventing crack cocaine and AIDS to kill all the black people in America.
Coulter went on to claim that Democrats "hate Bush because he is fighting the war on terrorism":
As some of us have been trying to tell you, Democrats don't oppose the war on terrorism because they hate Bush: They hate Bush because he is fighting the war on terrorism. They would hate him for fighting terrorists even if he had a "D" after his name. They would hate Bernie Sanders if he were fighting a war on terrorism.
She then described National Organization for Women president Kim Gandy as "bloodthirsty":
Gandy's support for [Connecticut Democratic Senate nominee Ned] Lamont must have been a particularly bitter pill for Lieberman to swallow, inasmuch as he has long belonged to the world's smallest organization solely to satisfy bloodthirsty feminists like Gandy -- Orthodox Jews for Partial-Birth Abortion. (OJFPBA has just slightly more members than GBRFC, "Gay Black Republicans for Choice.")
Who said Ann Coulter was smart?
She can brazen her way out of a LOT of shit she says, but this was openly racist, against black people, and Waters in particular.
I think this will cause her problems. And of course, we can now call her "racist Ann Coulter".
Thank you, Ann. Thank you so much.
