Controversial Republican commentator Ann Coulter jumped in to defend Herman Cain yesterday on the Sean Hannity Show from what many conservatives are calling a “witch-hunt” after Politico reported that he was accused of sexual harassment by two former employees in the early 1990s.
Coulter echoed Limbaugh’s comments on the matter saying the media was trying to take a Black Republican down.
“Liberals detest, detest, detest conservative blacks,” she said. “…This is now the second time (Clarence Thomas) a conservative black has had outrageous and what appear to be false allegations leveled against him.”
Coulter brought things back to race, saying that some women had been quick to forgive Bill Clinton for his sexual transgressions, but were attacking Herman Cain. “If you are a conservative black, they will believe the most horrible sexualized fantasies of these uptight white feminists,” she said.
Hannity wondered why liberals were, in his words, so “threatened” by Cain. Coulter was blunt in her response.
“Our blacks are so much better than their blacks,” she said, speaking of Democrats. “To become a black Republican, you don’t just roll into it. You’re not going with the flow…and that’s why we have very impressive blacks in the Republican party.”
