Continuing our apparent trend this week of right-wingers being complete dipshits, I give you professional asshat Ann Coulter, who somehow manages to blame the Newtown shooting on black people:

“On the gun crimes, we keep hearing how low they are in Europe, and oh, they’re so low, and they have no guns,” Coulter told Fox’s Sean Hannity. “If you compare white populations, we have the same murder rate as Belgium.”

Wow.  Seriously fucking racist.

Now here’s the thing.  If Ann Coulter had argued that minorities committed more crimes because of various socioeconomic factors, such as poverty or racial oppression, I would be okay with that.  But that’s not what she’s saying.  Ann Coulter is saying that black people commit more crimes simply because they’re black.  She is saying that black people commit more crimes simply because their skin is a darker shade.  And that is fucking racist.

Seriously, why do we still listen to her?  Why does she still get paid?  Something is very wrong with this country if Ann Coulter is still being treated like she has anything worthwhile to say ever.
