Anne Coulter Gets it Right… Sort of

Anne Coulter is a great American and a great writer. We don’t have to agree with everything she writes to recognize this.

Her most recent article, posted in Takimag, does not disappoint. Here’s some of it:

Fight Racism: Lock Up Criminals, Even Black Ones

This is a cautionary tale for all Americans, both white and black.

Last Sunday, a college couple, 22-year-old Adam Simjee and his 20-year-old girlfriend, Mikayla Paulus, were driving through Talladega National Forest when they were flagged down by a black woman having car trouble. If I tell you the good Samaritans may have been National Review readers, you can probably guess that one of them ended up dead.

As they were trying to fix the car, the woman, Yasmine Hider, pointed a gun at them and demanded they walk into the woods and hand over their phones and wallets. At some point, Simjee pulled out his own gun and started firing at Hider, wounding her. She shot back, killing him.

The reason I suspect the couple were National Review readers is that the “good Samaritan” ruse was one of the bullet points in John Derbyshire’s famous “The Talk: Nonblack Version,” which got him fired from National Review in 2012 — standing athwart history and mewling, “Please like me, liberals.”

Derbyshire hadn’t even published the piece in NR.

He was responding to a spate of lachrymose accounts of black parents describing “The Talk” they have to give their sons, instructing them to be super polite to police officers — smile and say, “Yes, sir” — lest the officer shoot them to death for no reason whatsoever. (Ask any police officer, and they will tell you black arrestees, to a man, are the politest people you will ever meet.)

In the piece, Derbyshire issued exhortations about treating black people with “the same courtesies you would extend to a nonblack citizen,” but then listed “some unusual circumstances,” requiring extra vigilance due to “considerations of personal safety.”

The “personal safety” rules concerned only complete strangers. His point was that when you have no other information to go on, you have to rely on statistics.

Derbyshire’s Rule 10 (h) was: “Do not act the Good Samaritan to blacks in apparent distress, e.g., on the highway.” He appended links to stories like the one that began this column…

Back in the halcyon days of Mayors Rudy Giuliani and Michael Bloomberg, we had one other fact to guide us: Criminals were in prison. Unfortunately for black people, a small percentage of their community commit a boatload of crime. But as long as criminals went to prison, New Yorkers could pass black men with little concern because if they were criminals, they’d most likely be locked up, not standing on a subway platform next to you.

Not anymore. Now, the criminals are out among us. There’s no possible way to evaluate a stranger, except the statistics. E.g.: Blacks, who make up about 20% of New York’s population, commit more than 70% of the shootings. In Los Angeles, blacks are only 8% of the population, but commit nearly half of the murders.

Suddenly, New Yorkers, Los Angelinos and anyone else living under Democratic control are behaving like the Rev. Jesse Jackson, who once remarked that when he heard footsteps on the street behind him, he would, “look around and see it’s somebody white and feel relieved.” He made that statement in 1993 — the very year Giuliani was elected mayor, before proceeding to drive down crime rates and liberate black people from dangerous neighborhoods, as well as from suspicious looks.

This is the cautionary note for black people. The Democrats’ Free All Criminals policies have hurt black people in myriad ways — mostly by getting thousands more of them robbed, assaulted and killed each year — but also in other, more subtle ways, like this.

As Senate candidate Blake Masters of Arizona said — and the media lied about — it is blacks, frankly, who suffer the most when criminals aren’t locked up. And the Democrats don’t care.

Coulter makes a good point. It IS mainly blacks who suffer from the pro-crime policies of Democrats.

Unlike her, however, I don’t have a great deal of sympathy for blacks in this regard. They continue to support soft-on-crime policies, they continue to vote Democrat, and they continue to remain silent about black-on-white/Asian crime. With a few notable exceptions, blacks seem to get publicly upset about black crime ONLY when it’s their own child who was killed. The “Snitches get Stiches” policy still holds sway in black communities.

Why should we make a stink about black suffering (from black crime and its consequences) when blacks themselves don’t seem to care enough to change their ways?

Additionally, though it bothers me when innocent blacks get victimized by black criminals, especially children, it bothers me MORE when innocent whites/Asians are the victims. At a group level, whites and Asians are more valuable to society than blacks or mestizos. Of course, this will vary depending on the individual, but speaking of anonymous victims, this is undeniable. Whites and Asians are fiscal assets to society, while blacks and mestizos are fiscal drains upon society. Whites and East Asians tend to create high-trust, quiet, societies. Blacks and mestizos tend to create low-trust, noisy, societies.

It bothers me the MOST when the victims are Jews, and that is mainly because I am a Jew. It’s only natural to value the lives of your own people more than others. Those who deny this, or worse still, have actually TRAINED themselves to not do so, have lost part of their humanity.

  1. Interesting:

    “It bothers me the MOST when the victims are Jews, and that is mainly because I am a Jew. It’s only natural to value the lives of your own people more than others.”

    True. I agree–but that is a Racist statement, is it not? (I say it is!)

    I would like to hear your comment on Joe Biden calling MAGA Republicans “semi-fascists”–(no one will pay attention to the ‘semi’ part). Those are killing words. Faux Joe Biden has breached civility. From the presidential bully pulpit–he has crossed the line and labelled Americanist republicans—Fascists. That is the most hated word for Jews and liberals.

    Is not the logic: Racists are Nazis. Nazis are evil. Racists are to be killed on sight.

    Is that not the logic of the Left? Didn’t the Bolsheviks call the Mensheviks, fascist? The narrative of communism is that anybody that is not a doctrinaire revolutionary Marxist is a fascist.

    I guess the killing can commence then. Joe Biden has unleashed the hounds!

      Yes, by some definitions of the word, I am a racist. It doesn’t bother me.

      As for Biden’s remark, I agree with your take on it. It’s grossly irresponsible – and contrary to reality. It’s the LEFT that’s tyrannizing us, not the right.

    Plus, most of them are part of the “ecosystem” that directly produces these violent criminals in the first place.
