Ann Coulter Bravely Steps On A Mine For Josh Gibson
You would think that Ann Coulter gets a gold star for dumbest thing uttered by a right wing hack this week, but you would be oh so wrong. Ann has certainly got a backlash out of this one, and I'm sure she'll find tangling with the tribe is much different than insulting some 9/11 widows. Just some advice bubelah: when your agent can't seem to find the time to take your calls, maybe you should reconsider how perfect we are. Also, enjoy the boycott calls from your previously supportive Jewish pals. Seriously, see how far your support for Israel gets you now. Do not fuck with us.
But no, gold star this week goes to John "Make More Babies" Gibson, who asserted that he knew the latest school shooter was white. Why? Because he killed himself. And "hip hoppers don't do that. They shoot and move on to shoot again." Keeping in mind that everyone's favorite Azn assassin blew his brains out and last time I checked Asians are not white, how else is Gibson's latest headshaker worse than the rest?
Outside of the crotchety grandpa act of blaming "the hip hop" and playing a variety of 50 Cent clips, let's examine Gibson's absolute cowardice in not being able to come to grips with his own racism.
GIBSON: He killed himself. Hip-hoppers do not kill themselves. They walk away. Now, I didn't need to hear the kid was white with blond hair. Once he'd shot himself in the head, no hip-hopper.
Let's substitute "black" in where he said "hip hoppers".
GIBSON: He killed himself. Blacks do not kill themselves. They walk away. Now, I didn't need to hear the kid was white with blond hair. Once he'd shot himself in the head, no black.
Even better, as many racists who are "just trying to help" often do, Gibson claims that his assertions are crouched in a concern for the African American community.
GIBSON: "I bought a brand new gun today. I'm gonna shoot you in the face." This culture has even reached the school campus. We're not in the Kip Kinkel era of school shootings anymore; it has changed. Yes, I know the shooter was white. I knew it as soon as he shot himself. Hip-hoppers don't do that. They shoot and move on to shoot again. Triple-8, 788-9910. I know there's a few of you who want to call me racist. But when you do, remind -- let me remind you, African-Americans are dying in major cities because people won't face this problem.
Yes, we all remember when "Get Rich or Die Trying" went on that rampage in Oakland. And who can forget the fateful day in Detroit when "Reasonable Doubt" killed 15 people in the greatest musical massacre since the Columbine Boys hummed Marylin Manson.
