Ann Coulter, a favorite of ours here at Yes I’m Right, just took to writing one hell of a take down for every liberal that called Donald Trump racist in regards to Omar Mateen, the ISIS-loving Muslim radical that killed 49 gay people in an Orlando night club recently.
Coulter’s usual sharp wit has no equal, so I won’t waste any more time with praise.
Here’s an excerpt from her epic article, as posted by St. Augustine:
The media have lost their minds after Trump’s magnificent speech last Monday.
It’s all hands on deck; no attack is too extreme. Their main point is: do not look at the speech. It has “words that wound.” Much too dangerous even to read it.
Instead of reporting what Trump said, the media give us the “gist” of it (in the sense of an unrecognizable distortion). It was awful, Hitlerian, beneath our dignity as a nation. They lie about what he said and then attack their own lies as if they’re attacking Trump.
In his speech, Trump said:
■ “The killer was an Afghan, of Afghan parents, who immigrated to the United States. His father published support for the Afghan Taliban, a regime which murders those who don’t share its radical views. The father even said he was running for president of that country.
■ The bottom line is that the only reason the killer was in America in the first place was because we allowed his family to come here.
■ “That is a fact, and it’s a fact we need to talk about.
■ “We have a dysfunctional immigration system which does not permit us to know who we let into our country, and it does not permit us to protect our citizens.”
Immediately after Trump’s speech, MSNBC’s Katie Tur “fact-checked” Trump, announcing that he had incorrectly said Omar was “born in Afghan.”
What did Tur think this meant? “Afghan” isn’t a country. Didn’t she pause for a moment and realize that what she thought he said makes no sense?
Journalists with their outsized sense of importance say, no, no, that’s not what I heard. It says in my notes right here, you said, “blue carrots for Eisenhower.” I stand by my notes.
Obviously, what Trump said was that Omar was “born an Afghan.” Which he was.
The media began indignantly informing us that Trump was wrong because — as The Washington Post put it: “The shooter was born in Queens to parents who emigrated from Afghanistan.”
With the media, you’re an “American” when you commit the worst mass shooing in U.S. history, an “Afghan” when you’re applying to college.
You’re an “American” when you shoot up the San Bernardino community center, a “Pakistani” when you’re offended by Trump’s remarks. You’re an “American” when you slaughter troops at Fort Hood, a “Muslim” when the Army realizes it can’t fire you.
This can lead to confusion. After the Post snippily corrected Trump on Omar not being an “Afghan” on Monday, on Tuesday, the Post admitted he was. Headline: “Orlando gunman said he carried out attack to get ‘Americans to stop bombing his country,’ witness says.”
