Ann Coulter: Palin Could Be Next Reagan

Conservative pundit Ann Coulter tells reporters that unwed mothers who the left seeks to portray as victims actually “victimize” their own children. Coulter, whose latest book is “Guilty: Liberal 'Victims' and Their Assault on America,” also says Sarah Palin should NOT seek the Republican presidential nomination in 2012 — but with more seasoning could eventually become “another Ronald Reagan.” The thrust of Coulter’s new book is that self-righteous liberals "viciously attack all while wailing that they are the true victims." She told reporters “The original victims were real victims. America has the legacy of slavery to live with, and the legacy of discrimination. So you start with something that’s real and then you have every other group glomming on to that story without having gone through the oppression. “You have the gays jumping on the bandwagon, you have rich white women living in Scarsdale (Betty Friedan: ‘Oh I’m so oppressed because I’m bored being a housewife’), you have the illegal aliens, you even have the Muslims getting in on the act, [claiming] oppression when they go through airport security… “We live in a world in which he who is offended first wins. So liberals, whenever they need to get their way, they just claim to have had some sacred feeling of theirs horribly wounded…

“The reason that works in a country like this is that American people are such lovely, charitable people. They see someone wailing in indignation and think it must be genuine. They want to aid the afflicted. A big part of this book is to point out to Americans: These are crocodile tears. This is a con.” Discussing one of the chapters in her new book, Coulter told reporters: “Single mothers are portrayed as the ultimate victims, the ultimate in selfless virtue, when in fact they are the biggest victimizers of all. They victimize their own children. “There is nothing you can do to harm your child’s life more than to bring a child into the world without being married. “Yet this is more than an incidental event these days. The illegitimacy rate has gone up by 300 percent since 1970, and this was a specific plan of the left. They hate the nuclear family… “You have all these liberal writers denouncing the nuclear family, denouncing marriage. [You have] the courts, the federal government subsidizing illegitimacy, the courts taking away the privileges of marriage.

The “liberals’ plan has succeeded and harmed millions of children who grow up fatherless and then go on to commit crimes, get pregnant themselves, become addicted to drugs, [become] teenage runaways and teenage delinquents. “About 70 percent of all these social problems I just listed are perpetrated by children who have grown up in fatherless homes.” Martella noted that Coulter mentions Sarah Palin a number of times in her new book, and asked if the media — which Coulter says has gone after Palin with “blinding ferocity” — would continue their attacks if she decides to run for the White House. “Absolutely,” Coulter said. “They’re not going to give up on the attacks. They see that Republicans have gold in Sarah Palin. “If I were Sarah Palin’s adviser I would strongly advise her to not run in 2012. She’s very young.” Instead, Palin should spend the next 8 or 12 years reading the Federalist Papers and other important political works, Coulter said. “Raise your children so none of them turn out like Ron Reagan Junior, and be a good governor, and then I think she could be another Ronald Reagan… “She has everything you can’t get from books, you can’t get from experience. She has heart and soul and absolute integrity, and charisma, and holds the crowd rapt. “Now she needs the wisdom and the experience, and I think she could be another Ronald Reagan.”
