First Lady Michelle Obama
Fox News frequent guest and bestselling author Ann Coulter let loose on Michelle Obama during a recent television appearance, ripping the first lady’s go-to argument of America as a racist nation and saying it’s about time she let go the “slavery” guilt trips.
Coulter and host Sean Hannity first discussed the first lady’s recent commencement address, criticized by many as too heavy on the race guilting.
Obama said, of her husband’s campaigning days: “Folks had all sorts of questions of me, what kind of first lady would I be? … The truth is those same questions would have been posed to any candidates’ spouse. … But as potentially the first African-American first lady, I was also the focus of another set of questions and speculations, conversations sometimes rooted in the fears and misperceptions of others. Was I too loud or too angry or too emasculating?”
Coulter called such talk over-the-top.
“I think she’s just letting out her Reverend Wright now,” referencing the outspoken religious leader the Obamas once counted among their friends. “Last week she was proclaiming museums discriminate against, weren’t welcoming to minorities. What do they have to do, be even freer? What are museums doing?”
Coulter then said such rhetoric only furthers the victimization mindset of many in the black community.
“Who is victimized the most by the predator class in the black community? The blacks, law-abiding blacks don’t like this,” she said.
And one more Coulter comment: “Yes, America does owe black America for slavery, for the Democratic policies of Jim Crow. I think we’ve – we’re making it up now, when you’re getting admitted to Princeton when you can’t read. Is that enough yet?”
Hannity was quick to clarify Coulter only meant “there are different standards” for blacks and white.
“Yes,” Coulter said. “The Great Society programs have destroyed the black community.”
