Not Helping

As usual Ann Coulter, psychotic neocon (but I repeat myself) extraordinaire, isn’t helping:

Ann Coulter is insisting that guns don’t kill people, non-white people kill people.

The conservative columnist on Monday told Fox News host Sean Hannity that the country had a “demographic problem” because “white populations” in the U.S. and Belgium had the same low murder rate.

“As you know, I just got back from England,” Coulter explained. “On the gun crimes, we keep hearing how low they are in Europe and, ‘Oh, they’re so low and they have no guns.’ If you compare white populations, we have the same murder rate as Belgium.”

“So, perhaps, it’s not a gun problem, it is a demographic problem, which liberals are the one are pushing, pushing, pushing, ‘Let’s add more [African-American mass murderer] Colin Fergusons and more whoever the [Muslim] guy was who shot up Fort Hood.’ Why are they coming in to begin with?”

Even though gun control has its roots in racism I think it would be wise to divorce the topic of gun control from race. Coulter’s attempt to blame demographics is absurd. Self-defense isn’t about race, religion, or gender. Everybody has the right to defend themselves.
