Ann Coulter thinks we need to be able to see into Republicans' hearts rather than just listen to what comes out of their mouths in order to tell whether they're racists or not.
After first discussing the dust up over Rudy Giuliani's claim that President Obama does not love America, and then playing some footage of Ed Henry badgering White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest about President Obama calling Bush adding $4 trillion to the debt “irresponsible” and “unpatriotic,” Fox & Friends host Clayton Morris asked if it “was a double standard?”
Flame thrower and Fox regular Coulter was happy to help them push their latest talking point of the week defending Giuliani.
COULTER: Good to be here, especially on this utterly non-controversial statement by Rudy Giuliani. I'm so happy we're talking about it.
MORRIS: So you don't think it's controversial at all?
COULTER: No and I think that's the wrong parallel. Listen, no, Democrats generally do not call Republicans unpatriotic, for the obvious reason that we aren't. But you know everyone keeps saying you can't see into his heart and you can't say this. Gosh, they sure call us racists a lot. Can they see into our hearts? And that’s based on, what? Because Republicans want to cut taxes?
Whereas the fact that Democrats, generally do not love their country. I would base on things like Obama expressly rejecting American exceptionalism. His Attorney General, Eric Holder saying we’re a nation of cowards and constantly finding racists under every bed, investigating this police department and that police department for racism. I mean, to defend yourself by saying “well, you can’t see into someone’s heart.”
No, I think if you go around constantly bashing Joe, “Joe is a racist,” “Joe is greedy,” “Joe wants to keep his own money,” “Joe won’t help me.” I think I can conclude you don’t like Joe”
Apparently that standard only applies to those on the left in Coulter-land.
