Revenge Of The Queers (Ann Coulter's Praise Of A Republican Sinner Alert)
Worldnetdaily.com ^ | 03/15/06 | Ann Coulter

Posted on 03/15/2006 4:09:17 PM PST by goldstategop

I guess the only way we'll ever find out how many blacks have worked in the Bush administration is to wait for them to get in trouble someday so we can read the breathless, triumphant stories on the front page of the New York Times about a black Republican scofflaw. It's amazing that anyone has ever heard of Condoleezza Rice – she's never even been arrested for jaywalking.

Claude Allen, whom I first heard of this week, was a top adviser to President Bush for more than 4 1/2 years. Soon after Bush was elected in 2000, he made Allen the No. 2 official at the Department of Health and Human Services. Allen later became Bush's domestic policy adviser, meeting with the president several times a week.

In 2003, Bush nominated Allen to a federal judgeship on the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals – which nomination was then blocked by the party that wouldn't exist without black votes. Deploying their usual strategy against black Republicans, Democrats raised questions about Allen's "legal credentials": Democrat-ese for "He's black, so he's probably not very smart." Allen went to Duke Law School, where he was remembered fondly by law professor Walter Dellinger, later Clinton's solicitor general.

During the entire time this talented, intelligent, magnificently conservative black man held high positions in the Bush administration, he was mentioned in only 11 articles in the New York Times. (A small part of Times Executive Editor Bill Keller dies every time the paper is forced to mention any black top officials in the Bush administration. It might remind people that the most highly placed black in the Clinton administration was his secretary, Betty Currie.)

But since Allen was accused of stealing from department stores a few weeks ago, the Times has mentioned him in seven articles – including a major front-page article on Monday, coverage more appropriate to the first moon landing. This makes Allen the first black alleged thief whose photo has ever appeared in the New York Times.

Allen isn't even working for the Bush administration anymore. Yet the Times is wallowing in his agony. I've never seen people enjoy another person's private pain so much – at least not since a prosecutor started investigating Rush Limbaugh for taking too many back pain pills.

Let me be the first to say: Congratulations, Mr. Allen! The New York Times really hates you. Welcome to my world. We're so happy to have you in our club.

I'm not shocked by the information that Claude Allen is not without original sin. But it has to be said: He was pretty close.

Allen emerged from a tough neighborhood in Washington, D.C., to go to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and then Duke Law School. He joined a "mostly white and liberal" fraternity, according to the Times, where he was adored – despite the fact that he didn't drink, a major demerit at a fraternity – for his ability to get along with anyone. One fraternity brother told the Times that Allen was "always thoughtful and respectful of different opinions" – a trait that would come in handy for a black teetotaler living in a UNC frat house.

He became a born-again Christian at college and – the obvious next step – a Republican after college. These acts are known in the liberal rulebook as "strike two" and "strike three," respectively. He explained leaving the party of his birth to become a Republican with eloquence:

I realized after the fact that I agree more with the Republican Party platform, that it talked about independence, that it talked about individual responsibility, individual rights, it talked about the ability to guarantee opportunities, not outcomes," adding, "that was very much what my family stood for.

He is married with four children, all of whom he home-schools. (Is there such a thing as strike four?) So he was already the moral equivalent to a Ku Klux Klanner in liberal eyes. Wait, no, if he were a former Klanner, he'd be the Democratic senator from West Virginia. Let me rephrase that: He was already a meat-eating, God-fearing, patriotic American in liberal eyes.

Allen also worked for the sainted Jesse Helms, former senator from North Carolina. By now, the average liberal would need yoga and a Barbra Streisand album to calm down. After Helms' 1984 Democratic opponent, James B. Hunt Jr., ran a TV commercial saying Helms was backed by "right-wing nuts," Allen reacted by saying that if the Helms campaign was run by similar guttersnipes, they could say Hunt was backed by "queers."

This week at the New York Times, it was revenge of the queers. I'm sorry it took a tough period in Allen's life for the New York Times to feature him under a banner headline on its front page, but all in all, I'm glad to finally know about Claude Allen. I'm proud to have this great fellow sinner in our party.

Let's hear it for a Republican sinner. Coming from the New York Times the only time you don't get a pass is if A)You're a conservative and B) Black and Republican. That is what really got Claude Allen crucified. They'd be excusing his sin if he were say, a good liberal. I'm with Ann Coulter on its great to have this great fellow sinner in our party.

I understand that Allen has a twin brother who has been in trouble with the law before. Maybe he is staying quiet so that the NY Times can just liable away the hours, and then get smacked with a huge lawsuit?

No one is perfect. Liberals defend murderers with a gusto. I don't condone what Allen did but while we're on the subject it seems to me scamming retailers is of a lower order than murder in the category of weighty sins. So why aren't liberals understanding? It must be the revenge of the queers for the loss over "Brokeback Mountain." I'd hate to see an otherwise good man's pain made public by our newspaper of record.

Allen's biggest mistake was he ripped off Target Department stores. If he had ripped off Wal Mart, the New York Times and other liberals would be calling him their man of the year and carrying him around on their shoulders.

I think you're right. These are the same people who think nothing better can be expected of blacks so they rewarded a group of black artists who wrote the song, "Its Hard To Be A Pimp," with an Oscar. They adore pimps but look down on a shoplifter. Hmmm

From what little is being reported about that angle, it does seem this could be a true to life "my evil twin did it" story.

Great column thanks.

Hang in their Claude. I'll presume innocence, but even if you should turn out to be a shoplifter, it's not like you neglected to pull your girlfriend out of the car, or recruited for the Klan, or let your house be used as a male bordello or took campaign contributions from Chicoms or committed indecent exposure/perjury/forcible rape or . . .

Are we sure he's guilty? As far as I know there has been no trial yet, much less a verdict.

If he emerged from UNC as a Republican, he must have a killer badass attitude.
But what a horrid thing to be charged with, stealing from Target. That's almost as bad as Sandy Burglar's stealing top secret documents and you know what happened to him!

"It's amazing that anyone has ever heard of Condoleezza Rice – she's never even been arrested for jaywalking."

But you see, according to Pravda, the blacks in Bush's administration have other problems.

"Condoleezza Rice's anti-Russian stance based on sexual problems...The US Secretary of State released a coarse anti-Russian statement. This is because she is a single woman who has no children."

I don't understand how it was possible for Allen to do what he's supposed to have done. The house the Allens just bought is less than a mile from our house. I used to ride my bike past there all the time. The road always had at least one and sometimes more than one black Suburbans with dark-tinted windows--that is, security vehicles. Surely a guy as high ranking as Claude Allen would have security accompany him when he went shopping, right? How could he engage in the equivalent of shoplifting if he had a security detail around? It doesn't make sense. That's what makes me question the whole thing. Has he actually admitted doing this?

There must be a lot of crying going on in that house these nights. Poor family!

I gotta check on this further, but as I recall, there was no shoplifting.

Target is saying he redeemed rebate coupons inappropriately.
(Like he sent in more than one coupon for a purchase?)

I don't know the details, and won't defend him until I do.
(And I will bet if he clears this up there won't be even a single paragraph buried deep in the Times.)

Upside of all this: Ann Coulter can make me laugh even when telling a tragic story like this.

The story is that he would purchase an item, return to the store with the receipt, pick the same item off the shelves and take it to customer service for a refund.

When the cameras caught him doing this (coming into the store with nothing and then taking items to the CS counter), they checked and he had returned thousands of dollars in items for refunds.

From what I read, it would be really tough for him not to be guilty.

It's amazing, though, that we'd never heard of him. Nobody had. Maybe he was on the list of stalled judges, but given his high position and the fact that he was a black man denied a court seat, I'm very surprised we hadn't.

Here in Maryland we have some exciting black Republicans who are on deck, ready to take on the Democrat goons who run this state. Ron Miller for Congress (challenging Steny Hoyer), and Mike Steele, who's gunning for the seat of the retiring Paul Sarbanes. Any of you Free Staters out there who would like to support them, contact me. We have events planned. We could use your support.

So its the NY Times fault he was a shoplifter?

If he is in fact a shop lifter it is not the NY times fault that he is a shop lifter.

If he is in fact falsely accused of being a shop lifter it is not the NY times fault that the is a shop lifter either. But your question seems to exclude this possibility--why?

The question to ask, is why does Ann feel it necessary to mention the NY Times at all? How is it relevant to whether he committed a crime? Is it somehow an excuse that he wasn't mentionned in the NY Times before now? Or should the NY Times have not mentionned his arrest?

The NY Times is hardly as obscure to the public as the person they were writing about. Do you think there are lots of folks out there that have never heard of the NY Times until they read this negative critique of it?

But perhaps you are right. It is oh so obvious that Ann should check with us before she dares write about the NY Times yet again ;-).

The question I asked--which alas is not "the question" as you put it--is one you can answer rather then Ann. I know very little of the shop lifting case. I was wondering if you knew something that made it reasonably certain that the man was guilty. If not I was wondering why you presume he is guilty.

Did you even read the column? Or do you have problem understanding what you read?

The column is about Allen, a black conservative, and his treatment by liberals and the New York Times. Which matters because.... the NYT, along with the WaPo and the WSJ are read by the financial and political elites in this country.

BTW, the "evil twin" is not a joke. Allen has an identical twin who has had problems with the law.
