Coulter: ‘Not a gun problem,’ U.S. has ‘demographic problem’ with non-whites

Coulter: ‘Not a gun problem,’ U.S. has ‘demographic problem’ with non-whites


Ann Coulter is insisting that guns don’t kill people, non-white people kill people.

The conservative columnist on Monday told Fox News host Sean Hannity that the country had a “demographic problem” because “white populations” in the U.S. and Belgium had the same low murder rate.

“As you know, I just got back from England,” Coulter explained. “On the gun crimes, we keep hearing how low they are in Europe and, ‘Oh, they’re so low and they have no guns.’ If you compare white populations, we have the same murder rate as Belgium.”

I think she sits up at night trying to think of the most outrageous thing she can say the next day, regardless if it's factually based, and then does it. She is, as you said, a steaming pile of shit.

21. That's The Attitude Of Some DU Gun Enthusiasts.


The dog whistle phrase is "gang-related." If a shooting death is perhaps "gang-related," it doesn't matter to these people.

22. They do go to great effort to segregate "urban" shootings from the overall carnage

 

Paladin, you have have their M.O. down pretty good. Because the victims tend to be black, brown, yellow or poor whites they want to separate this violence to minimize the effects of guns on society as whole. They also militantly object to counting teenagers as kids.

31. Is That An Original Thought? Did You Just Come Up With That One?


Because it sounds like the same old NRA deflection talking point I've heard for the last forty years or so. I'm a gun owner, and I've never advocated depriving the law-abiding of self-protection. Not once. Gun control is not the same as gun elimination---not that making that painfully obvious point ever seems to make a difference with folks like you.....

45. It matters a lot

we just wonder why it is that assault weapons generate so much angst and vitriol when they are not the weapons that are killing Americans (especially African Americans) day in and day out.

An AWB will do nothing to reduce the two largest segments of gun deaths - criminal violence and suicides. It will do nothing to reduce mass killings for that matter too.

16. It is also factually inaccurate

in addition to being completely offensive. African Americans, in particular, are disproportionately victims of gun violence, but the majority of perpetrators are white.

46. Pretty Hard to get behind that point

To just ignore a whole race of people justifies us not trying to make life better. Talk about Apples and Oranges, whites and non whites socio and economic back rounds are so far off, that makes her comparison specious at best and fraudulent at worst.
Should we then also just ignore the positive impact of these people as well. I saw a lot of those brown faces serving with me in Iraq, but a silver spoon from the burbs would never actually go out and meet other people. The only way she would encounter a minority is if they came to her, after getting thru security of course.

At least there is no mystery about her.

Kinda nice not having to figure out exactly what she means.

I think we are going to see a lot more of this as we seem to be splitting along so many lines.

fans and if to do that it requires racism, she is all over that.

I think it is all a carefully scripted act.
