On Mark Levin’s radio show Tuesday, conservative commentator Ann Coulter questioned President Barack Obama’s suggestion that he is a product of a racist society, and that he is an appropriate messenger to counteract that racism.
Coulter, author of “Mugged: Racial Demagoguery from the Seventies to Obama,” offered he analysis prior to the publication of a Daily Caller exclusive video on the Fox News Channel, which showed then-Sen. Barack Obama portraying himself as something different than he is now.
“Obama is such a fraud,” Coulter said. “He grew up in a ‘Beverly Hills, 90210′ existence, but he’s just desperate to have this angry, black persona. It’s rather like reading about you know, Hitler’s musings on his Germanic identity. You know, he graduated from this fancy, fancy school in Hawaii, voted recently the greenest school in America. And yet, when he wants to, he just turns it on and suddenly we’ve got Malcolm X speaking to us.”
Coulter explained how there is a whole fakeness to Obama and the use of racism in society. Yet, the president still walks around “like he’s Martin Luther King,” she said.
“Yes, and still angry — it’s all an act,” she said. “It’s like his 70 percent of Twitter followers being fake. The whole thing is just smoke and mirrors. And at least for people of our generation, this is a large part of why we now have more child molesters than racists in America.”
“It just isn’t a part of our existence. During our entire lifetime, the only effect of being black is that you get benefits. Doors open for you. You are more likely to get a position in Harvard Law School. Anyone who grew up watching ‘The Brady Bunch,’ this racism and discrimination — at least discrimination against black people, there’s some discrimination against white people — simply isn’t a part of our conceptual apparatus, which is why it’s so strange to have of all people this half-black man born in Hawaii in 1961 walking around like he’s Martin Luther King.”
