Ann Coulter Blames Liberals For Herman Cain Sexual Harassment Report
Reported by Ellen - October 31, 2011 -
Leave it to Ann Coulter to come up with the same kind of keen insight about the breaking Herman Cain sexual harassment scandal that she brings to her decisions about where to vote. “There’s nothing liberals fear more than a black conservative,” she asserted on Geraldo At Large last night. “This is an outrageous attack on a black conservative who is doing extremely well and I think will be our vice presidential candidate.” Later, when Juan Williams challenged her assertion, she said, “Right-wingers never bring up personal attacks like this.”
Williams burst her balloon. “This is the conservative Republican establishment going after Herman Cain,” he said.
It was telling that host Geraldo Rivera asked Williams to back up his assertion without asking Coulter to back up hers.
And Williams had the back up. He said that liberals do not have opposition research operations going on against Cain. “For the last 10 days, the Republican establishment has been going after Herman Cain,” Williams said, pointing out that Cain’s comments on abortion and his tax plan have been attacked by conservatives. “A lot of that has come from people like Grover Norquist who’ve said, ‘This (the 9-9-9 plan) is going to drive up your taxes, don’t fall for it.’ So this is the Republican establishment. Karl Rove, Grover, those guys.”
Coulter’s response? “Number one, right-wingers never bring up personal attacks like this.” Uh, really? Because Coulter’s entire paycheck and raison d’etre are based on personal attacks. For Coulter to say conservatives don’t make personal attacks is like saying she was never investigated for voter fraud.
Once again, Rivera asked for no proof from Coulter. In fact, he never challenged a word of her outrageous statement.
However, Williams pointed out that right now Cain has no liberal opponent. “What he’s running against is Mitt Romney, Rick Perry. Those are the people who are right now fighting, battling Herman Cain and who are being hurt by Herman Cain’s tremendous success… This is a political fight going on for the Republican nomination among Republicans and the split inside there is between Republican establishment and grass roots Tea Party folks – most of whom right now have been going with Herman Cain.”
