Monday night, Ann Coulter spoke, which of course meant something horrible, ridiculous and/or just plain untrue was said.
She did not disappoint…

In response to Michelle Obama finally speaking up about the racism her family has experienced during the six years her husband’s been in office, Coulter hit the revisionist history talking points. She blamed Democrats for Jim Crow and she blamed modern-day racism on President Lyndon B. Johnson’s Great Society programs.
Larry Wilmore, on his Tuesday night show, was having none of that. He, for once and for all schooled Coulter and other Republicans who claim that it’s Democrats who are to blame for racism.
Wilmore did admit that for the first half of the 20th Century, there were Southern Democrats, called Dixiecrats, who were some of the most vile racists of all, but it was Lyndon Johnson who sent the Dixiecrats over to the Republican party when he signed the Civil Rights Act and the Voting Rights Act.
The Dixiecrat voters ended up voting for Richard Nixon and Wilmore played some of Nixon’s most racist sound clips. He had something to say about nearly every ethnic group, including about black people. He even said, “there are times when abortion’s necessary like when you have a black and a white.” Republicans should love that one.
In the end, Wilmore pointed out:
“The bigger point is that both Republicans and Democrats have had a lot of affirmative action when it comes to discriminating against black people”
