In the fallout of the Herman Cain sexual harassment story, Ann Coulter has quickly become one of the most prominent voices defending the Republican presidential candidate, calling racism against him and other black conservatives for their politics. She went a step further on Hannity last night, claiming that “our [conservative] blacks are so much better better than their blacks,” and tonight she proved to Joy Behar she didn’t just say that because she was among ideological friends.RELATED: Andy Levy Accuses Ann Coulter Of Playing The ‘Race Card’ In Tense Red Eye Clip
On the program tonight, Behar quoted Coulter back to herself and asked her to clarify what she meant by “our blacks are so much better than their blacks,” which she said on Hannity last night. “Are you saying all the African Americans who are Democrats are stupid?” “No,” Coulter replied, “I’m saying Google Maxine Waters, Cynthia McKinney, and John Conyers,, or Google Allen West, Michael Steele, or Herman Cain.” “Ours are more impressive. There is no question about that,” she concluded.
Behar challenged her, claiming that Coulter only didn’t consider them impressive because she disagreed with them, and that liberals didn’t “despise” conservative blacks. “I like Michael Steele, he’s fine,” Behar offered. In response, Coulter noted that Waters had supported the LA riots and that “when Michael Steele was running for Senate, liberals showed up and rolled Oreos down the aisle at him.” She concluded that “the only racism you hear is against conservative blacks, and it is vicious.”
