The women of "The View" took the tired old race-bait, anspecial, as tempers flared on Thursday's episode.
Coulter stopped by the ABC talk show two days after her nemesis President Obama and his first lady visited, to "pimp" her latest book "Mugged," and the moment she slinked onstage and sat down, hackles rose. She opened her mouth and the usual strategic controversial spiel came out. You know the "ignorant, simple minded blacks are duped by the liberals and only vote for Obama because of his color" kind of garbage.
Note the title of her book: It is no accident that she used the word "Mugged" to talk about a black president or black's so-called history of being mindlessly led by the Democratic Party. At least her vitriol and deliberate race baiting is consistent.
Coulter's head is struck so far up her assets derived from writing these books and trolling talk shows that she fails to see her own hypocrisy. Or maybe she is very aware of her own exploitative hype but manipulates merely for profit and fame. After-all she is a media "hog." Too strong a label from one woman to another? Okay, is media hound better?
I say that because she obviously loves the limelight and thrives on the controversy she creates. It is her modus operandi and though she is an academically accomplished woman, she prefers being the butterfly that flits from liberal leaning gabfests to conservative talking heads, whipping up stereotypes and biases to a foaming frenzy.
The woman makes a living race-baiting and doesn't see the irony of her writing books claiming it's that very thing that is destroying blacks. She is a smart woman, so I know she is not that obtuse to believe her own BS, or maybe she does. It has appeared lately that Ivy League education is not a deterrent for ignorant rantings among some conservatives on topics ranging from religion and evolution, to global warming, rape and female reproduction.
Race-baiting keeps her relevant and pays well. She used disparaging and condescending language like "Brooklyn mentality;” and "the white guilt bank was shut down by the O.J. verdict which was the best thing for white America" and more contrived phrases designed to do only one thing. Incite, and the ladies of "The View" fell right into the trap.almost jumped across the table and "bitched slapped" Coulter. Even the lone conservative on the panel , looked uncomfortable as Coulter spoke.
Here’s an excerpt from “Mugged: Racial Demagoguery from the Seventies to Obama:” “Millions of Americans watched as a mostly black jury acquitted an obviously guilty black celebrity and saw black America cheer the verdict. The sight of black law students whooping and applauding O.J.'s acquittal had the same emotional impact as watching Palestinians celebrate the 9/11 attack.
Overnight, the white guilt bank -- once thought "too big to fail" -- was shut down. Henceforth, instead of producing stuttering embarrassment, liberal moral intimidation on race produced only eye-rolling. With that, America became a much healthier country, especially for black people.”
Stunned? I was too for that’s a stretch, even for her. But "The View" keeps bringing her on, for it makes for high ratings. The more intense the cat fights, the greater the controversy, which equals bigger audience numbers in TV land. Inadvertently, they are helping sell that biased trash she writes for though highly offensive, there is an audience out there for that sort of vitriol. The same kind that gravitate towards those other loud venomous mouths of, and the likes of , just to name a few-- whose multi-million dollar contracts depend on cultivating and keeping alive the hate, resentment and ignorance.
The kind that Senator(R-S.C.) was referring to during his Washington Post interview, where he reportedly expressed concern that the Republican Party’s future was at stake because it didn’t appeal to minorities-- adding, “The demographics race we are losing badly—we are not generating enough angry white guys to stay in business for the long term.”
Apparently, according to a sitting senator of the GOP, the party’s core is made up of “the angry white male” who now feels “victimized.” Talk about incredible irony.
