Ann Coulter Calls Latinos Lazy Underclass

By December 10, 2012

Follow me on:

Republican pundit Ann Coulter is still seething over Mitt Romney's failed presidential bid. And which group does she blame for Romney's loss? Hispanic Americans. Coulter seems to believe that Romney would have crushed Barack Obama in the 2012 presidential race if Latinos looking for handouts hadn't shown up en masse at the polls.

In an column called "America Nears El Tipping Pointo," Coulter argues that immigration from "Mexico's underclass" and the "poorest of the world's poor" has irrevocably altered U.S. society.

"Perhaps the reason elections maven Michael Barone was so shockingly off in his election prediction this year was that... Barone has been assuring us for years that most of these Third World immigrants pouring into the country would go the way of Italian immigrants and become Republicans," she states. "They're hardworking, they have family values. Maybe at first, but not after coming here, having illegitimate children and going on welfare."

In fact, a higher percentage of whites use such social services than Latinos, according to the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities. Moreover, higher numbers of Hispanic immigrants live in households made up of couples and children than the American-born population does, according to the Pew Hispanic Center. But let's forget about the facts for a moment. How does Coulter think that the GOP will ever attract Latino voters if conservatives such as herself are determined to make sweeping generalizations about them? Most minority groups take offense to racial stereotypes, so Coulter's hardly doing her party a favor by characterizing Latinos as a bunch of good-for-nothing types out to score government handouts.

George W. Bush won significant amounts of the Hispanic vote during both of his presidential campaigns. In 2000, Bush won 35 percent of the Hispanic vote. Four years later, he won 40 percent. Would Coulter have characterized Latinos in the same way eight years ago, or does she found this description suitable today because it's easier to point the finger at someone else than look at the failings of her own party?

Just the fact that people buy Ann Coulter’s books shows the thought level of some Americans. Since when is she an authority on Latino’s and Blacks? Romney lost because his racial view points are exactly like her’s blind sighted and racist.

Ann Coulter is a racist. The people who buy her books are identical to her . I can’t believe she makes herself an authority on Latino’s and even worst places a public racial stereotype on them. Romney lost because he was a dishonest politician a liar and a racist. He should have chosen Ann Coulter as his Vice Presidential running mate Dumb and Dumber together.

Big mistake to think Hispanics will be helpful for Blacks. They have a strong antipathy towards us. I got a job with a roofing company during college break in 2008. The rest of the crew were Mexican and Central American. No or very little English. From the first day on the job, they made it clear they did not want me there. During lunch, they ate together and gave looks that told me to stay away. I ignored them for three weeks, but began to see things that made me afraid for my safety.
On the steep roofs , we were supposed to wear safety harnesses. There was always one short, guess who did without. Complaints to the foremen, who was a Guatamalan, were ignored. I needed that job, but not at the risk of my life. As time goes on, and they increase in numbers, we are going to be the third man out.

These sets of people are “bad dogs and bad dogs” hate to be called a bad name “bad dogs”. They are deceitfuls, liars, hipocrates and unpatriotics, they believe in their money bags politics which woefully handed them magnanimous/huge loss beyond their imagination. They forgot money is not everything and happiness cannot always be bought with money. They thought they can sway people’ s mind with negative advertisements, full of false campaigns but reality has done on them which they found it so difficult to understand. Their pains will continue like wounded lions hence they started calling us all kind of names to get a revenge of a bitter loss election. The election has come and it has been won by the best of the two candidate PRESIDENT OBAMA., NO RECOUNT, NO HANGING CHARTS, NO “MAGOMAGO” SORRY NO MALPRACTICES AND WAS WON CLEAN CLEAR BY A WIDE MARGIN” .What a wondeful way God has compensated the masses with his own chosen of PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA from the so called money minded politicians who have no plans, sympathy or consideration for the masses. WHAT A WONDERFUL GOD! They will continue to “cry” and nurse their wounds for the next 4 years and beyond, bluntly predicted till the year 2020! by then they should have become a bit smarter to understand the pains and the yearnings of the common people, the masses of this great nation of all of us – UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. AND UNITED WE STAND!

Rumor has it that Anne’s surgery to have the testicles removed was a failure. So we’re left with this he-she man who wears makeup fooling no one.

Ann Coulter is a fool… and a racist… and not really all to bright. She has made a career and likely lots of $$$ saying stupid things that get people angry… we should do what my sister does when her 3 yr old states acting up… ignore her. By giving her an audience, we are making her important… she is not.
