Hate-Spewer Coulter Defends Racist Group - Nobody Surprised

From HuffPo: Mark Potok: Columnist Ann Coulter Defends White Supremacist Group

(Thanks to Dispatches from the Culture Wars for pointing this one out.)
Rabid far-right commentator Ann Coulter is known across America for sliming everyone and everything she disagrees with.
But despite denouncing school desegregation as a "spectacular" failure, Coulter has generally avoided bolstering white supremacist hate groups. Until now, that is.

In her latest foaming-mouth tome -- Guilty: Liberal "Victims" and Their Assault on America, released on Jan. 6 -- Coulter spends the better part of three pages defending a group called the Council of Conservative Citizens (CCC), which The New York Times had described as a "thinly veiled white supremacist organization."
So she's not only a sexist, homophobic, hateful, vile, psychotic, fraudulent, moralless, gutless, ugly-bodily-and-mentally slimebag, she's also a racist. Don't believe me? Read on:
Coulter begs to differ. 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."
(Emphasis mine)

So she carries the water of a well-known adjunct of the KKK, complete with breathless assertions that DEM NEEEGROZE IZ CRIMNULZ KILIN GUD WITE FOLKS.

Is anyone surprised by this? Anyone? I doubt it.

Sometimes I think the people who think she's actually a liberal who's trying to make conservatives look bad are right - then I realize that there are still people in the world who honestly believe this kind of crap, and I stop thinking that.
