Impeachment Week: It's OK to Be Bored;
Not OK to Be White
Ann Coulter, January 23, 2020
It's weeks like this that make me wish I
had a job and didn't have to stay home watching TV. With the impeachment
nonsense dragging into its 56th month, I have some random observations, only a
few of which have anything to do with impeachment.
1) As tempting as it must be for
Republican senators to make a headlong rush to the TV cameras at the conclusion
of the day's festivities, they would be well advised to say this, and only this,
Here are the vital issues the United
States Congress did NOT address today:
-- Repairing our highways, bridges and
border with a major infrastructure bill.
-- Ensuring that all Americans can get
jobs by cutting off the deluge of cheap foreign labor.
-- Providing the public with quality
services by not inviting the rest of the world to come partake of government
benefits meant for Americans.
-- Fixing the disaster of Obamacare, so
that all Americans have access to quality health care (by activating the same
mechanisms that give them quality food, housing and iPhones: the free market,
contract law and occasional government subsidies).
-- Passing a bill to defund all the
pointless, expensive military deployments around the globe, so we can FINALLY
address the hellfires in our own hemisphere.
-- Ending the opioid crisis by declaring
war on Mexican drug cartels and building a wall.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell
should attach electrodes to the testicles of every Republican and blast him the
moment he (OR SHE!) diverges from the script.
2) The person I really feel sorry for is
Nancy Pelosi. I assume she's weeping uncontrollably as she watches her chances
of holding the speakership dwindle every time Jerry Nadler waddles to the mic.
True, you "go to war with the army you have, not the army you might want," as
Donald Rumsfeld said, but surely there are more telegenic Democrats than Nadler
and Adam Schiff.
3) Every day since forever, The New York
Times has run a column about how white people are getting on African Americans'
On Monday of this week, it was "How Much
Racism Do You Face Every Day?"
Average for black teenager: 5x a day.
Example: Hearing about a family member
who experiences something they described as racial discrimination.
And here's one from Tuesday, titled: "How
to Convince a White Realtor You're Middle Class; Black people expend daily
energy to counteract racial stereotypes and get fair treatment."
The examples included a white real estate
agent asking a slatternly attired black woman if she could afford a specific
house, and a black woman claiming she was required to sign a "no party" pledge
before checking into a Portland, Oregon, Marriott.
Also since forever, whites have been
trying not to offend. Thus, on the same day as the racial stereotypes column,
the Times ran an article about white Iowa voters terrified of picking a
Democratic nominee whom black people won't like.
It's useless. No matter how hard they
try, whites just can't stop offending black people with their damned
My thought is, anyone of any race can
commit "microaggressions" against people of other races. What we all should
endeavor to do is avoid macro-aggressions -- you know, little things like
murder, rape, assault and carjacking.
4) Last week, 20-foot-tall letters
appeared on the side of a barn in Southport, England, spelling out the phrase:
"IT'S OK TO BE WHITE." British papers went on red alert, denouncing the
"[r]acist and anti-ethnic graffiti" that "[s]hocked" and "appalled" residents.
We understand and deeply apologize for
such monstrous racism. Would any of these variants pass legal muster?
-- It might be acceptable to be white,
but we're not sure, we'll get back to you.
-- While it is certainly never OK to be
white, we hope you will accept our deepest apology.
-- Whiteness is not for everybody, but to
say it's 'OK' to be white is not who we are.
If none of these are acceptable, please
rest assured, we don't mean to offend. Apologies all around! We're all staying
late at the office to figure this out. Food is being sent in as we speak ...
At least we won't have to watch
Gov. Northam and Liberal Media Seem
Disappointed That Virginia Gun Rally Was Peaceful
Sheriff David Clark (Ret), January 23, 2020
The cafeteria food fight, also known as
the Senate impeachment trial, is underway. I, like most Americans outside the
Beltway and the political bubble, know this is like watching a movie where you
already know the ending. Trump will rightfully be acquitted. The Democrats do
not realize that America is tired of their political antics and high drama
tactics. I mean come on, they walked over the articles of impeachment like a
bunch of mopes, feigning seriousness, while many Americans either yawned or
The rest of the country is more
interested in what happened recently in the gun-grabbing Commonwealth of
The Virginia midterm wins allowed
Democrats to take over the House of Delegates, and after the previous election
cycle wins, they now control all of the state government. They promised gun
control, and they are delivering on that promise. However, they are moving
stealthy, one step at a time, toward gun confiscation. These new proposals are
designed to frustrate and create hurdles for people who want to exercise their
Second Amendment rights. To me, these laws are similar to what Democrats did
when they drafted the Black Codes to frustrate newly freed slaves in the South
from exercising their constitutional rights. One of those codes restricted
blacks from owning firearms or for people to sell them guns. Another tactic
Democrats used that frustrated blacks attempting to vote came in the form of a
poll tax. As you can see, there is a parallel here with the tactics Democrats
used against newly freed slaves and current tactics used against gun owners.
Pay attention, folks. These gun
restriction laws won’t stop at Virginia, and will likely be coming to a state
near you. How ironic that the gun rally was held on Reverend Martin Luther
King’s birthday celebration. King had been denied a concealed carry permit.
The response from some brave residents of
Virginia is encouraging, however. Pro-Constitution, pro-Second Amendment
patriots are rising up and are pushing back, fighting as Democrats do. More
importantly, they are using tactics that Democrats think are reserved only for
them. I have been encouraging and waiting for this moment for a long time. I
have written about the need for a new kind of conservative political fighter for
the battles of the 21st century. Forget about the establishment GOP. They don’t
have the fight in them. I have encouraged people all across this country that if
they want to preserve this great republic, they, like the Founding Fathers, are
going to have to fight to keep it and to rescue it from the damage that already
occurred during the Obama regime.
The idea of sanctuary city status started with
the Democrats and their liberal ilk by fighting the Supremacy Clause in Article
VI of the Constitution and the federal government’s attempt to enforce its
immigration laws. I didn’t see, unfortunately, any attempt by the feds to apply
8 USC 1324 that calls for criminal penalties for whoever knowingly
provides safe harbor for illegal aliens. Now that gun rights supporters are
using the sanctuary status to in an effort to block their state from enacting
restrictive gun ownership, the Democrat Governor Blackface/KKK Ralph Northam in
Virginia is going after these counties by declaring a state of emergency and
using some bogus intelligence reports that had no connection to the event to
legitimize it. The FBI quickly arrested a few white nationalists who didn’t even
live in Virginia, and they gave us no information that these goofs were
preparing to descend on the Virginia capital for the rally. If the FBI had been
as attentive to the 9-11 hijackers, the Tsarnaev brothers who blew up the Boston
Marathon, Omar Mateen from the Orlando nightclub massacre, and Nidal Hasan in
Fort Hood Texas—all people known to them—countless Americans would be alive
today. Maybe they don’t know the difference between a real threat and a
Make no mistake what is going on here. This is
a flat out provocation by Gov. Blackface. It’s an act of intimidation. He is
trying to create a chilling effect against citizens exercising their right to
assemble peaceably and petition state government. He is manufacturing hysteria.
It is as if he wants a confrontation so he can show the country how dangerous
and deranged gun owners are and that they need to be disarmed. It was his former
Alabama Governor George Wallace standing in the school house door moment to
prevent school desegregation.
The liberal news media played their
predictable role, too, with their sky-is-falling headlines leading up to the
event. They all hyped that trouble was inevitable. Here is a sample headline.
USA Today: Richmond
Virginia Gun Rally, Protests Draws Militias and Fear of Violence.
Now read the headlines after the event, and you get a sense of the liberal
media’s disappointment. CNN: Virginia
Gun-rights Rally Concludes Peacefully Despite Earlier Fears of Extremist
Pro-Gun Rally, Despite Anger, Threats of Insurrection, Massive Rally is Carried
Out Peacefully. And
this from Politico: Pro-Gun
Rally by Thousands in Virginia Ends Peacefully. While
you feel the disappointment in these headlines that no trouble occurred, the
media doesn’t hold such perceptions of leftist radical groups like ANTIFA or
Black Lives Matter rioters. Why? We all know that answer.
So the event went on in an orderly way. I
knew it would. So did Governor Blackface and his propaganda machine known as the
liberal media. But they couldn’t resist the opportunity to smear supporters of
the Second Amendment with his pre-event, hysteria-filled narrative.
I hope that other states organize a
critical mass of people who support the Constitution, all of it not just a few
self-serving pieces of it, and that we will push back against their attempt to
remake America. It is time to show Democrats and the left that we will do unto
them as they do unto us. #RiseUp.
I watched the Impeachment Trial yesterday for
as long as I could stand it. Speaking for myself, this address is for all of the
bleeding heart liberal leftest Socialist Go to Hell Democrats. I don't care who
President Trump talked to or what he said. What I care about is the strong
economy this country has, low employment and good paying jobs and keeping your
sticky fingers out of my wallet. All you Democrats and your feel good policies
contribute to this country is more debt with your half baked schemes on how to
sucker more people into “Freebie Giveaway Programs” at my expense. What I call
it is buying votes. Some of the poorest voting districts in this country are
controlled by you and your failed promises. If you are so concerned with social
engineering get your ass on an airplane and go the Cuba! You will be right at
Today as I
have checked my AOL e-mail from time to time I notice the liberal press
expressing dire consequences for Republican Senators who vote to dismiss the
Impeachment charges so prescribed by the Democratic controlled House against
President Trump, I would suggest to the liberal media that it's not the
Republican Senators who should worry but the whole Democrat Party that is fixing
to have a foot shoved up its anal orifice. You reporters would do well to cease
snorting the nose candy and take off the rose colored glasses and join the real
world before the November elections when as we say in the South “ A GOOD OLE ASS
KICKING” is going to send the Democrat Party packing!
