I like hearing CNN's Fareed Zakaria ask in a thick Indian accent, "What kind of America do we want to return to?"— Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) July 24, 2016
It would be easy to note that since, at 54, Ann Coulter is no longer the "It Girl" of White Pride Worldwide, she has to hate ever harder and louder to get her ghastly, dead-eyed mug on camera.
But that would be wrong.
You could also argue that, as author Steven Beschloss does that, Trump has opened the door for this kind of despicable talk:
And while that is true, it is not at all sufficient.
As Liberals bloggers and media sites have documented for years and in excruciating detail, this kind of "despicable talk" has been the lingua franca of Hate Radio/Fox News for decades now. Decades.
And yet tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow, she'll still be syndicated in newspapers coast-to-coast. And next week or the week after that she'll be back on MSNBC, yucking it up with Chris Matthews.
It is long past time when anyone can honestly say that Ann Coulter, or Sean Hannity, or Rush Limbaugh are the problem.
No, the problem is the mainstream media that normalizes their bigotry and lies.
I imagine Melissa Harris-Perry's MSNBC termination letter mounted on a pike outside the MSNBC cafeteria as a cautionary tale to anyone MSNBC employee who might be thinking of challenging Comcast's corporate decisions in any way.
I imagine Joe Scarborough rubbing it every time he walks by -- like it was his own, personal Apollo Theater “Tree of Hope” stump -- and laughing and laughing and laughing all the way to the bank.
