This week’s two Minutes of Hate, otherwise known as the Coulter Quote of the Week, is dedicated to two people this week.
The first is dedicated to the folks over at “rightmichigan.com.” They attacked Sen. Mark Schauer, D-Battle Creek, because Ken Brock, his Chief-of-staff, was paraphrased in an opinion column by a reporter as calling one of Schauer’s potential opponents in the Democratic nomination for the 7th Congressional District seat a "liberal, Jewish trial lawyer.” What he was doing was talking about how hard it would be for David Nacht to win the nomination in a conservative district that has been held by Republicans for years. The same day Brock apologized for the remark, and Mr. Nacht accepted the apology and understood the context the unfortunate word, “Jewish,” was used. However, it took four days for the good folks over at wrongmichingan to post the apology.
The second dedication goes out to the students at Xavier University in Cincinnati who raised more than $25,000 in a “Counter Coulter” campaign – the speaking fee Ann Coulter was charging the Xavier University College Republicans and Young America’s Foundation to speak for them – to donate to tolerant student groups at a counter event held the same day Coulter is speaking. Great job.
Here in Livingston County, in less than three weeks the queen of hate will be at Cleary University’s Economic Club Speakers Luncheon Series speaking for Cleary University, speaking for the Livingston County Republican and further reinforcing the false notion that Livingston County welcomes racists of all ilks. She will collect her $30,000 for 90 minutes of hate, and she will be gone.
Here are this week’s quotes of the week:
“Moreover, a question on reparations has got to be confusing when you're half-white and half-black. What do you do? Demand an apology for slavery and money from yourself? I guess biracial reparations would involve sending yourself money, then sending back a portion of that money to yourself, minus 50 percent in processing fees — which is the same way federal aid works.” --- Online column 8/1/07
“Democrats are counting on illegal immigrants to be the future of their party, their border guards for the new socialist state. At least liberals have a clear mission and know what they're fighting for. Their plan is to destroy America.” --- Online column 8/22/07
