Ann Coulter: Only Liberals Have Noticed ‘Browning of America’

Appearing at the Conservative Political Action Conference, conservative author and pundit Ann Coulter asserted that “only MSNBC has noticed and celebrated the ‘browning of America’,” referring to conservative’s inability to corral Hispanic votes.

She went on to note that while MSNBC celebrates it, “if you don’t celebrate it (the browning of America, that is), you’re a racist.”

“It’s not as if people crossing the border illegally in the back of trucks marked pico de gallo, hiding in barrels, running from the border guards — it’s not like they did not know what they were doing was wrong,” she continued. “Everyone acts like they stumbled into the country.”

She also called on the conservative crowd to oppose immigration reform because it could help the Democrats. “You want the Democrats who want more immigrants, particularly illegal immigrants, because they need brand new voters, just warm bodies, more votes,” Coulter said. “Amnesty goes through, and the Democrats have 30 million new voters. I just don’t think Republicans have an obligation to forgive law-breaking just because the Democrats need another 30 million voters.”

The comments were made during what was supposed to be a debate between Coulter and the Daily Caller’s Mickey Kaus, though it wasn’t much of a debate as Kaus basically agreed with Coulter. “Democrats have a perfectly good reason to be for amnesty, which is craven ethnic pandering that’s going to ensure our power for the next two generations, but what is the Republican excuse?” Kaus said.

Of course, another CPAC panel drew some outcry from Texas Republican Lamar Smith, who said CPAC wasn’t conservative enough. Speaking about a panel called “Can There Be Meaningful Immigration Without Citizenship?”, Smith said “You have to wonder when a self-described conservative organization stacks an immigration panel with amnesty advocates. For the second year in a row, CPAC has featured a panel where all but one speaker supports the agenda of liberal Democrats and the liberal national media.”

When asked if he himself was invited to argue this cause at CPAC, Smith’s spokesperson said “Congressman Smith declined to participate on such a biased panel since they already had three pro-legalization speakers.”

      There ya go again-dealing in facts and being rational…

      Actually, the idea isn’t to PATRONIZE minorities, which is all the GOP seems to be capable of doing, but to adopt policies that benefit all citizens, including minorities And those are the programs that the GOP legislators are quick to cut while they pontificate about groups of people they really know nothing about because they live in an insular, white world.

    It’s not that immigrants (legal or illegal) are inherently Democrats, it’s that the Republican party has so many racists immigrants vote Democrat by default. They have no where else to go.

    The Republican party created this phenomena by not standing on what used to be their own principals. The principals of Lincoln.

    Hateful bitch talks as if all illegal immigrants are from Mexico ignoring the fact that a large percentage come from Europe and Asia. Etc. Hate mongers like her, Limbaugh, Paul Ryan etc are more of the reason that most immigrants vote Democrat. They’re not stupid. They don’t want to be a part of the hateful, ignorant party.

  • Richard Taylor

    I wonder what could have happened to her as a child? So much hate and anger, and bitterness.

    • Goforride

      Maybe not. Maybe it’s just shrewd business savvy, knowing her target audience. Maybe she’s really totally cold blooded.

  • William Bell

    So this is about giving vote to Democrats, instead of making human beings life better? What if they were Eastern Europeans?

  • David Veal

    Very short sighted on the immigration strategy. If you think in terms of the long run you can get more people in with conservative positions. Pass the immigration bill now, show you are a fearless partner in the process. Not a strategic goof.

    Ann is inadvertently advertising an important truth: GOP plans to accommodate immigrants are intended to make them into captive workers without the rights of real people (or even of “corporate-people”) because they want even cheaper labor than they have now (with the real minimum wage at an all-time low)…and because they can hardly hope to earn political support from a group they intend to exploit so ruthlessly. “The Democrats want voters; we just want workers.”
    I feel sorry for the GOP that this woman is their intellectual “party piece”, but there’s no accounting for tastes.

    What is really funny,is these hate mungers started out as immigrants themselves (their heritage is off the boats at ellis island) but ofcourse that is totally different, right? It is even funnier yet to find out how many of them have black blood in there past or blood lines of brown skin of some type. She yes must have had some kind of abuse of some kind as a child, I would say some classmate she made feel like a dirt bag either tripped her and showed her panties or she was made to think she was stupid by the males in her family especially her father, now that one I might bet on. Maybe her Dad was having an affair with the immigrant cook or maid

    so the USA will have 1 billion by 2100 and the water shortages are starting to happen. No one should be welcoming immigrants to a land that only wants them for cheap labor, that has had it’s jobs shipped to China, that just doesn’t WANT THEM. Period. We never asked for them to come here, our government brings them here for cheap labor to work the slaughterhouses for $7 an hour and low paying factory jobs. The end result will be Brazil. 5,000 murders a day and a huge poverty class.
