Ann Coulter believes conservative blacks are "so much better" than liberal blacks. And she's sticking to that contentious conviction.
The rightwing pundit defended her eye-brow raising claims on Tuesday in
the aftermath of accusations that Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain sexually harassed two women in the '90s.
Shortly after the charges were launched, Coulter went on a tirade
claiming Cain is a victim of the liberal mainstream media and insisted
the attacks were akin to "high-tech lynching."
"Our blacks are so much better than their blacks," Coulter told Fox
News. "To become a black Republican, you don't just roll into it. You're
not going with the flow. You have fought against probably your family
members, probably your neighbors, you have thought everything out and
that's why we have very impressive blacks in our party."
HLN's Joy Behar
questioned Coulter's remarks on Tuesday evening, asking if she believed
"all the African Americans who are Democrats are stupid?"
"No," a testy Coulter answered. "I'm saying Google Maxine Waters, Cynthia McKinney, John Conyers, and then Google Allen West, Michael Steele or Herman Cain. ... Ours are more impressive. There's no question about it."
Behar argued Coulter doesn't believe liberal blacks are impressive simply because she disagreed with them.
Coulter dismissed the claim, pointing out that Waters supported the Los
Angeles riots, Cain is frequently called an Uncle Tom by his critics
and when Steele was running for Senate, "liberals showed up and rolled
Oreos down the aisle."
"The only racism you hear in America is against conservative blacks," Coulter declared.
