The gift and curse of free speech:
MSNBC hosted Coulter and highlighted, without challenge, her assertion that
Obama "wouldn't be running ... if he weren't half-black"
hosted right-wing pundit Ann Coulter to discuss the 2008 presidential race less
than 24 hours after she repeatedly referred to Sen. Barack Obama as "B. Hussein
Obama" and "President Hussein."
Less than 24 hours after she repeatedly
referred to Sen. Barack Obama as "B. Hussein Obama" and "President Hussein,"
right-wing pundit Ann Coulter
appeared on the February 14 broadcast of MSNBC News Live to discuss former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney's endorsement of Republican presidential candidate Sen. John McCain (AZ). During her appearance, on-screen text highlighted her February 8 assertion in a speech she made to the Young America's Foundation that Obama "wouldn't be running for president if he weren't half-black." The on-screen text read:
"COULTER: OBAMA WOULDN'T BE RUNNING IF HE WERE NOT HALF BLACK."
Last week, she also noted that Obama's first accomplishment was being born half-Black:
On February 8, less than 12 hours after her appearance on NBC's Today
show, right-wing pundit Ann Coulter delivered a speech to the Young America's
Foundation in which she referred to Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama (IL) as "B. Hussein Obama" and asserted, "His strongest selling point is that he is one of the least dangerous people I know named Hussein." As the blog Think Progress noted, Coulter went on to say: "Other than that, Barack's really been kind of coasting on his record, since his first big accomplishment of being born half-black. I keep hearing people say, 'Oh, Obama could never be elected because he's half-black. You know, 'cause we're just such a racist country.' What are they talking about? He wouldn't be running for president if he weren't half-black. He'd be [Sen.] Dick Durbin [D-IL] with less experience." The speech was broadcast live on the Townhall.com.
What's worse than this woman are the people that subscribe to her train of thought.
