When Ann Coulter clashes with the ladies of “The View”, you know it’s going to be good and juicy television, and they did not disappoint this morning.
Coulter, who was there to promote her new book “Mugged: Racial Demagoguery from the Seventies to Obama“, went head-to-head with Whoopi Goldberg on the topic of race mongering, with Whoopi telling her she shouldn’t talk about things she wasn’t informed on.
“Tell me how much you know about being black,” Whoopi said.
“This isn’t about being black,” Coulter retorted.
“You just made all these statements about how black people feel.”
“No, I didn’t.”
“Yeah, you did.”
“This isn’t a book about black people. It’s a book about white liberals.”
Coulter then went on to comment on Joy Behar’s accusation that Republicans are “going against blacks” with voter ID laws:
“This is a perfect example of liberals using the label of civil rights to promote a liberal cause they support, i.e. voter fraud. In fact, one of the first states in the Union to pass voter ID bills was Rhode Island which has an eighty five percent Democratic legislature. And who pushed it, a black Democrat in the House and a black Democrat in the Senate.”
Coulter later stated:
“I don’t think liberals ever cared about black people. Five minutes after the Civil Rights Act of ’64 passed, they start calling everything that has nothing to do with black people a ‘civil rights issue.’”
That comment sent the stage into an uproar and ended with Whoopi calling bullshit on everything Coulter was saying (which got bleeped out). Watch the drama unfold below.
