Ann Coulter: Trayvon Martin Was A ‘Criminal’ Who ‘Mugged’ George Zimmerman

by David Badash on July 17, 2013

in Bigotry Watch,News,Politics

At exactly 9:59 PM Saturday night George Zimmerman was pronounced “not guilty.” At exactly 10:01 PM  Saturday night — just two minutes after the verdict was read – Ann Coulter tweeted “Hallelujah!” to her followers. Today, less than five days later, she added insult to injury with her column, “To Avoid Looking Like A Criminal, Don’t Commit A Crime,” where she calls Trayvon Martin — whom the jury and conservatives already convicted of his own murder — a “criminal” who “mugged” George Zimmerman.

“The case most like George Zimmerman’s is the Edmund Perry case,” Coulter presumes:

In 1985, Perry, a black teenager from Harlem who had just graduated from Phillips Exeter Academy, mugged a guy who turned out to be an undercover cop. He got shot and a few hours later was dead.

Instead of waiting for the facts, the media rushed out with a story about Officer Lee Van Houten being a trigger-happy, racist cop. When that turned out to be false, The New York Times looked at its shoes. It was the kind of story the elites wanted to be true. It should be true. We had such high hopes for that one. Damn!

She then concludes, “[i]nstead of turning every story about a black person killed by a white person into an occasion to announce, ‘The simple fact is, America is a racist society,’ liberals might, one time, ask the question: Why do you suppose there would be a generalized fear of young black males? What might that be based on?”

“Throw us a bone,” Coulter demands. “It’s because a disproportionate number of criminals are young black males. It just happens that when Lee Van Houten and George Zimmerman were mugged by two of them, they survived the encounter.”

Yes, now the murdered 17-year old Skittles-eating, Arizona iced tea-drinker is a “criminal,” a “mugger,” and responsible for his own death.

Conservatives like to blast liberals on gun control, often claiming we blame the gun not the person who pulled the trigger, for the crime. Now, apparently, it’s not the person who pulled the trigger who’s to blame, but their dead victim.

Conservative logic.

“Black liberals keep bemoaning the danger to their own teenage sons after the ‘not guilty’ verdict in George Zimmerman’s murder trial,” Coulter writes. “To avoid what happened to Trayvon Martin, their boys need only follow this advice: Don’t walk up to a stranger and punch him, ground-and-pound him, MMA-style, and repeatedly smash his head against the pavement.”

I know some might (actually, many have,) call Coulter a racist, but that’s just too easy.

Coulter is the author of Mugged: Racial Demagoguery from the Seventies to Obama.

I understand that Ann Coulter generates pageviews, but there is really no other reason to broadcast her opinions.

teeveedub July 17, 2013 at 6:53 pm

Why does anyone pay this hatemonger any attention? The best thing we can do is go into bookstores and move her books into the history or philosophy sections, where her fans would never look.

Alex_Parrish July 17, 2013 at 10:52 pm

Ha1 I actually did that a few times with Palin's book — or at least turned-it-around to the back cover. LOL

nolacs22 July 17, 2013 at 7:20 pm

I certainly would not post or repeat anything she had to say.Her and Ted Nugent would make a great pair.

pauln2901 July 17, 2013 at 9:09 pm

Did Anne Coulter shit herself as well?

StevyDi July 18, 2013 at 9:19 am

Ann only likes gay men, while most gay men don't like Ann and Ted only likes mares he can shoot his arrows from while riding at full gallop.

nolacs22 July 18, 2013 at 9:24 am

Frankly,I don't know how anyone could put up with him.

pauln2901 July 17, 2013 at 9:08 pm

Why are you pumping up this wacko's infamy? Anne Coulter says something stupid and racist? Wow, who'd have thought it?

Wingspree July 17, 2013 at 9:22 pm

Ann Coulter-whoooaaaa. Well first of all, it is striking to me that she casts facial expressions and at times a blank look that can be interpreted that she never had an orgasm before. Why show the world, Ann? Her comments about the verdict and African-Americans sound ethnocentric as well as culturally and racially displaced. Maybe she's mentally ill-I don't know. I'll rest right now with her displaying and ranting her racism which is poor mental health.

sdfrenchie July 17, 2013 at 11:40 pm

Maybe she's mentally ill? Surely you jest. It's an absolute!

This bean-skinny skag with stringy blonde hair that she keeps signaturely sliding sideways to reveal a long face that daily bears at least a hundred dollars' makeup is such a pathetic excuse for a human being it is difficult to distinguish her from a hyena. I once thought she was simply a Tea Party agit-prop bomb thrower trying to outdo Rush Limbaugh in outrageousness and ire-raising, dumbfounding tomfoolery, but the only people who could possibly find her amusing are crypto-fascist types without an ounce of humanity or a scintilla of empathy for a fellow human being other than Koch suckers and those on the dole from the conservative cottage industries, including publishers like Regnery. These houses buy up copies of their writers' books to claim them "best sellers." At one time, I also bought into the wags' favorite scenario that she once was a man who had a sex change but forgot to have the adam's apple shaved — that is, until it dawned on me that this is unfair to transsexuals, most of whom would never stoop to the gutter nonsense this prostitute for prosperity parades before the reading public with each new tome, all destined for quick relegation to the remainder bins. Finally, I realized what her real problem is. The woman is a sick perversion of a soul lost in egomaniacal sewer detritus, hard to ignore because she stinks so foul. Unfortunate but that's as it is.

sdfrenchie July 17, 2013 at 11:46 pm

She'll get hers. The only one she's convinced is herself and she won't listen to anyone else. She's a nobody who's forced her way into the public domain with her nonstop insidious remarks spoken more loudly and unstoppably than anyone else in a crowd. No one listens and neither does she.

If anyone ever gets furious enough at her to harm her I hope and pray it's a white guy.

mariacatalinaegan July 17, 2013 at 11:51 pm

What a disgrace. An unarmed 17 yr old is dead. I am no fan of that horrid woman, but frankly I thought she had some minimum of common decency.

BJLincoln July 18, 2013 at 12:34 am

What a waste of skin. She is a hatemonger and media whore. She will say anything to get attention.

tgflux July 18, 2013 at 5:17 am

Killer: "This is what happened."
Killed: [ ]

Wingnuts: Killed was a black male, right? What [the Killer] said happened then.

White trash Nazi whore

David, what a predictable response from you and your ignorant followers on Ann Coulter's commentary. She is a breath of fresh air to thinking, wise people. It must be frustrating to have no facts and to resort to personal attacks in an attempt to discredit her.

Just because you and your minions have such a racist lens and narrative, you are bitter and sour over the clearly justified Zimmerman verdict. You might consider that even the distinguished attorney, Alan Dershowitz said there was never a case and there may be prosecutorial misconduct for how Angela Corey deceived the judge by with holding evidence that would have never allowed this to come to trial. Could Corey have a less than honest political agenda, here?

AKayVee July 19, 2013 at 5:01 am

This is the first time I had paid any attention to what Ann Coulter has said. In this case, I think she is right on the spot! I have never thought of myself as a racist, and I have considered myself a 'liberal.' But I agree completely with what Ann C. is saying. I watched every minute of the Zimmerman trial, and I am astounded at how up in arms people (particularly the African American community) are, how indignant, and how spewing over and over the same illogical remarks. George did not simply single him out and shoot him! Are their ears plugged?! Trayvon was the aggressor, he was 7 inches taller than George, he was far more skilled and experience with fighting, he might have killed him. George defended himself. How is all that simplified as creepy white guy hunts down and shoots little black child with candy?! Here is a case where the black person was the aggressor, not the under dog. If we always have to make the black person the under dog, isn't that a victim mentality, and it isn't it discrimination against the white person?
