Ann Coulter Defends White Supremacist Group

Reported by Ellen - February 15, 2009 -

The Southern Poverty Law Center, the venerable civil rights institution now dedicated to promoting tolerance and tracking hate groups, has laid out in detail how FOX News fave Ann Coulter has advocated on behalf of a white supremacist group in her latest book.

SPLC's Mark Potok writes:


The CCC, Coulter opines, is “a conservative group” that has unfairly been branded as racist “because some of the directors of the CCC had, decades earlier, been leaders of a segregationist group.” “There is no evidence on its Web page that the modern incarnation of the CCC supports segregation,” she says. “Apart from some aggressive reporting on black-on-white crimes — the very crimes that are aggressively hidden by the establishment media — there is little on the CCC website suggesting” that the group is racist. Indeed, its main failing is “containing members who had belonged to a segregationist group thirty years earlier.”

Coulter could hardly be more wrong. And even if she can’t find time to read beyond a page of the CCC’s website, she really ought to know — after all, the organization where she frequently speaks, the Conservative Political Action Committee, has publicly banned the CCC from its annual gathering because it is racist. Also in the late 1990s, Jim Nicholson, then-chairman of the Republican National Committee, asked GOP members to stay away from the CCC because of its “racist and nationalist views.”

Coulter also recently made news because she is under investigation for voter fraud again.
