Ann Coulter’s Reaction to Election Results

Whatever one might think of right-wing pundit Ann Coulter (below, posing with Bookman from Good Times), one cannot help but be drawn to her first post-election column. The same would be the case for one of her left-wing counterparts had Sen. McCain won, though that box of Lucky Charms would come with a free “I’m moving to Canada” toy inside, but I digress.

After 2 years of continuously (perhaps uncharitably) referring to the now President-elect by his full name in her columns, one could almost imagine what sort of mischief the willowy Ms. Coulter had up her designer sleeve.

Well, the wait is over for friend and foe alike.

The opening line sets the table. She comments on the historicity of last night’s outcome,

Last night was truly a historic occasion: For only the second time in her adult life, Michelle Obama was proud of her country!

Oprah: Biased? No Question. Racist? Hmm…

I create feelings in others that they themselves don’t understand. — Lightning McQueen

Well that’s one thing Barack Obama has in common with the Pixar creation. At least when it comes to the popular Ms. Winfrey, who said this after the Senator’s recent acceptance speech,

What I saw with Barack Obama was something that was transcendent and I felt transformational for me as a human being and for this country.

Hey, I hear you O! I’ve already given the best reasons that qualify Mr. Obama for the Presidency:

  1. He took the time to take pictures with the Texas football team
  2. He wears Asics

Those 2 trump what has been told to me : “he gives a good speech”, “he reminds me of JFK”, “he’s for change”

So now Oprah (unabashed Obama honk) is in the news for refusing to have Sarah Palin on her insanely popular show. Granted, O will have her on after the election (probably provided that the GOP doesn’t win) but not anytime before.

This prompted the good impartial folks over at ABC to ask the following question:
Is Oprah Biased? Host Won’t Interview Palin

Well of course she’s biased ABC (takes one to know one?) but the better question is, “Is she racist?”

I know it sound preposterous (it’s impossible for libs to be racist) but let’s play a bit of “A Time to Kill” pretend.

You have an immensely popular white talk show host who is endorsing a young, charismatic “biracial” GOP Presidential candidate (For example, George Prescott Bush, right). The Dems have a woman VP candidate on their ticket but said talk queen refuses to have her on the show.  Now imagine that the Democratic VP candidate is black.

How long would it take for the race-hustlin’ Sharptons and Jacksons of the world to cry bloody racism?

A shade longer than it took Mr. Cruise to leap into O history…

[For the record Ms. Winfrey, I don’t think you’re racist]

The Whitening of NFL Rosters

I became a huge Jason Whitlock fan after watching him take Al Sharpton to task for the latter’s alarmist tactics.

Whitlock is a gifted writer not to mention a brilliant communicator, which is why he is linked to right in the “Opinion” box.

A column he wrote for Fox Sports (his new home) titled,
“NFL buffoons leaving terrible legacy”, expounds on the effects of hip hop culture on the composition of NFL rosters.

A sample,

African-American football players caught up in the rebellion and buffoonery of hip hop culture have given NFL owners and coaches a justifiable reason to whiten their rosters. That will be the legacy left by Chad, Larry and Tank Johnson, Pacman Jones, Terrell Owens, Michael Vick and all the other football bojanglers.

In terms of opportunity for American-born black athletes, they’re going to leave the game in far worse shape than they found it.

It’s already starting to happen. A little-publicized fact is that the Colts and the Patriots — the league’s model franchises — are two of the whitest teams in the NFL.

If a white journalist would have said this, Al Sharpton would have called for the man’s immediate dismissal and subsequent hanging. Even if our theoretical white journalist would have added what Whitlock did further down the page,

Race is not the determining factor when it comes to having a good or bad attitude. Culture is.

I recommend reading the entire column to consider the following question: Does Jason Whitlock have a point?

“I agree with Dr. Watson”

Is the title of an editorial (alternate link) written by Nigerian Idang Alibi in response to the comments attributed to famous geneticist James Watson (blogged about it here).

Needless to say, I was somewhat shocked by the title of the column and even more so with its content.

For example,

Since then (Watson’s comments being made public), some of us cannot hear anything else but the outrage of black people who feel demeaned by what Watson has said. So many people have called the man names. To be expected, some have said he is a racist. Some even wonder how a “foolish” man like Watson could have won the Nobel Prize. Even white people who, deep in their heart, agree with Watson want to be politically, correct so they condemn the man.

Any truth to that last sentence? It would be interesting to know the stats on this group of people.

The following would brand Mr. Alibi a racist if he weren’t a black man,

But I do know that in terms of organising society for the benefit of the people living in it, we blacks have not shown any intelligence in that direction at all. I am so ashamed of this and sometimes feel that I ought to have belonged to another race.

The following would draw the righteous indignation of Al, Jesse and Quanell, and of course, the politically correct whites Alibi mentioned in the opening,

Anywhere in the world today where you have a concentration of black people among other races, the poorest, the least educated, the least achieving, and the most violent group among those races will be the blacks. When indices of underdevelopment are given, black people and countries are sure to occupy the bottom of the ladder. If we are intelligent, why do we not carry first when statistics of development are given?

In a moment of honest reflection Idang lets it out,

As I write this, I do so with great pains in my heart because I know that God has given intelligence in equal measure to all his children irrespective of the colour of their skin. The problem with us black people is that we have refused to use our intelligence to organise ourselves socially and politically.

Couldn’t agree more with this paragraph in regards to what he says about God giving his children intelligence.

As to the latter part of the paragraph, he has a point. So long as demagogues like Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and Quanell X keep telling their community (and they in turn listen to them) that their internal problems are always someone else’s fault, black people in America will sacrifice their God-given intelligence at the altar of victimhood.

[On a related note, Dr. James Watson resigned from his position of Chancellor of Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, so I guess he did get Carleton S. Coon’ed.]
