Mr. Howell: Young man are you accusing a Howell of cheating? I’ll have you know I’m far too wealthy.

Spy Gilligan: To cheat?

Mr. Howell: No, to be accused!

Talking Points memo is breathlessly reporting the following statement from Ann Coulter

The quote that caused them to embed this video and was this:

“On the gun crimes, we keep hearing how low they are in Europe, and oh, they’re so low, and they have no guns,” Coulter told Fox’s Sean Hannity. “If you compare white populations, we have the same murder rate as Belgium.”

Ed Kilgore at Washington Monthly titles his post “Solution is obvious” snarking:

If I didn’t really like the Belgians, I’d suggest that she get herself over there permanently right away. It might be a socialist hell in her eyes, but it would be one where she’d not only be secure, but would not be allowed within 100 yards of a camera.

In the comments at the two sites I see many adjectives describing what Ann said: “Hateful“, “Racist”, “Horrible”, but there are only two adjectives that actually matter concerning her statements:

True or False

Oddly neither TPM nor Washington Monthly bothered to dispute her statement. Perhaps it is presumptions of me to believe so, but if professional journalists from nationally known sites are going to snark over someones remarks one might think they would weigh in concerning: their veracity. Given their scorn for Coulter their failure to do so speaks volumes.

Nevertheless I’m still outraged over Ann’s Comments, not because of what she said but because of the reality they represent.  Just this week a 13-year-old black teen on his way to choir practice in Boston was shot. Nobody demand a march, nobody called for the confiscation of guns over it and no national news network outside of Fox decided the story was newsworthy beyond the city.  I didn’t see any story in Memeorandum for TPM or Washington Monthly to comment on concerning it.

Rather than be upset about Coulter I can’t forget this from afrodaddy:

In relation to homicide the number one killer of black men is other black men. It is a national tragedy that black-on-black crime ranks as the 4th leading cause of death for black men. In the age group of 15 – 34 black-on-black crime is the #1 killer of black men.

because this truth outrages me and it should outrage you too!

I submit and suggest until our friends at TPM & Washington Monthly find a way to blame the GOP for the  stats in this chart from the CDC.
Disease-Homicide
they will continue to be less outraged by Black and Hispanic mothers in tears over their dead children then Ann Coulter suggesting it is a problem.

After all why worry about a bunch of dead people’s whose parents will vote for you if you try to save them or no?

Our friends on the left and particularly in the media, are very loud and proud about declaring their opposition to guns. That is until it hits home:

If you want to know why James O’Keefe is so hated by the left, it’s simple, he shows them for what they are.

If you have a right to know who has a gun doesn’t that automatically mean you have a right to know who doesn’t?

I was all set to write about a different subject when I noticed this at Instapundit quoting Harry Reid at of all places Talking points memo DC. (emphasis mine)

The Second Amendment is something that was adhered to by Hubert Humphrey, John Kennedy,” Reid said. “So I don’t think anyone wants to diminish the Second Amendment, but I think everyone should just take a deep breath and realize where we are and where we need to go.

Harry Harry Harry, you’ve just hit the nail on the head. John Kennedy was killed when I was 5 months old. Hubert Humphrey died when I was 14 and if those people were the type of people running the democrat party I might still be a democrat.

The democrat party ran away from the Humphreys and the JFKs a long time ago. To them I would have been a valued voter. A grandson of immigrants, the first in my family to complete college, a devout Catholic and a person who opened a small business at the age of 26 to try to make a go of it.

Today I’m all those same things and a father of 2 who are now in college teaching them the same values that my devout hard-working parents taught me. To that same party, I’m a racist, bigot, sexist, homophobe who needs to be stopped.

I recognized this change before many leaving the party just before my 30th birthday when I saw what they became, for others it was harder. It took nearly a lifetime for my mother to leave the party she voted for since 1948 and she didn’t cast a vote for a GOP candidate for president until her final vote 37 days before her death.

If the Democrat party was the party of JFK & Hubert Humphrey or even Tip O’Neill then I when it came to the 1st amendment or the 2nd I’d trust them to respect those right enshrined in the constitution.

Today it is the party of Harry Reid, Barack Obama, Alan Grayson and Elizabeth Warren.

On Morning Joe Mika & Joe lamented the lack of trust in Washington between the parties. When your party becomes the party of JFK, Tip and Humphrey again then perhaps I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt again.
