COULTER: LIBERAL VICTIMHOOD: A GAME YOU CAN PLAY AT HOME (Caroline Comforted by her Pony Macaroni)
AnnCoulter.Com ^ | Jan 28, 2009 | Ann Coulter

LIBERAL VICTIMHOOD: A GAME YOU CAN PLAY AT HOME
January 28, 2009

I notice that liberals have not challenged the overall thesis of my rocketing bestseller, "Guilty: Liberal 'Victims' and Their Assault on America," which is that liberals always play the victim in order to advance, win advantages and oppress others.

I guess that would be hard to do when the corrupt Democratic governor of Illinois is running around comparing himself to Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King Jr. and Mahatma Gandhi.

Indeed, you can't turn on the TV without seeing some liberal playing victim to score the game-winning point.

Caroline Kennedy tried to Bigfoot her way into New York's Senate seat while being bathed in the Kennedy light of eternal victimhood. The New York Times began a profile of Caroline by quoting an average citizen who "turns almost maternally protective" upon hearing Caroline's name, mentioning the assassination of her father -- nearly half a century ago.

MSNBC's Chris Matthews summarily announced: "We all want to be protective of Caroline Kennedy." When one of his guests, Michael Smerconish, merely asked what her qualifications were, an appalled Matthews said: "Wow."

Political reporter Ron Brownstein elaborated on "wow," saying: "Well, that's pretty rough. That's pretty rough. I mean, but she has got, at least publicly, a very private persona, one of quiet grace and elegance and intelligence."

The Times' City Room exercised its own protective function toward Caroline by censoring any indelicate inquiries about her on its blog.

The Kennedys are the textbook case of victims who go around victimizing others. As I describe in "Guilty," in 1969, Times reporter James Reston began his story about Teddy Kennedy driving a girl off the Chappaquiddick bridge with the sentence: "Tragedy has again struck the Kennedy family."

Reston waited a discreet four paragraphs before mentioning the name of the dead girl, whose "tragedy" was arguably greater. (Even the Times rewrote Reston's opening line.)

Caroline's expectation that she would sail past all other contenders and be handed a seat in the U.S. Senate is perfectly in keeping with her family tradition.

When Robert Kennedy won his Senate seat from New York, he unseated a well-liked Republican, Kenneth Barnard Keating, who had represented New York in Congress for more than a decade.

Meanwhile, Robert Kennedy hadn't lived in New York since he was 12 years old. But the allegedly sophisticated voters of New York were awed by the Kennedy name, and dumped a popular native son.

A deputy manager of Kennedy's campaign explained that the carpetbagger accusation could not withstand the image of JFK's assassination a year earlier: "You couldn't vote against Robert Kennedy without seeing the presence of John Kennedy."

With New York's record of swooning for celebrity victims, it was a snap for another carpetbagger, Hillary Clinton, to push aside veteran New York Democrats to win her Senate seat in 2000.

When Gov. David Paterson ended the Kennedy soap opera by appointing Democratic congresswoman Kirsten Gillibrand, her Democratic colleague, Rep. Carolyn McCarthy, blanketed the airwaves, threatening to challenge Gillibrand in the next election because of her NRA-approved stand on guns.

McCarthy explained, "My voice is for the victims."

if Obama's African relatives had anything to do with slavery, it was on the business end.

That's right. However, this point will be lost on those same people who dumped their "slave names" to adopt black power names like "Muhammad", "Kareem", "Malik" et al, never bothering to look too closely at the bill of goods they were being sold.

Nobody seems much interested in the Muslim merchant role in the slave trade. We've been told to believe it was entirely a white Christian enterprise where they'd cross the entire continent of Africa to capture the Zulu all on their own...

The Arabs invented race-based slavery, importing East Africans to the Iraqi marshes as the best way to keep their field hands from being able to run off and melt into the populace at large.

From there, African slaving in the West passed into the hands of the Barbary Pirates and Sally Rovers—both of whom were more-or-less colourblind—and from there to the Spaniards who started importing non-Christian North African slaves—predominantly, but not exclusively sub-Sarahan Africans to work their plantations in the West Indies after the Arawaks died out due to Eurasian diseases.

After the War of Spanish Succession, the English received the right to the Spanish slave trade with America as their reward for opposing the Bourbons. The English only dabbled in the trade of African slaves in significant volume from 1715—although they did import some from Spanish colonies before that—to 1807, when they outlawed the traffic while permitting the practice of slavery to endure in their colonies for another 20 years or so.

The history after that is pretty well known, but it was another brilliant Muslim contribution to world civilisation in conception.

Just to repeat the money line.

BTW for those of you that have the ditto cam, did you see Ann give Rush that peck on the cheek after Rush had try to shake hands? Hmmmm. Would that be a marriage made in heaven? No Matlin/Carvill combo there!

HA! That is exactly what I told my boss at work and another friend. They acted as if I was completely heartless and ignorant and irrelevant to mention that Obama has no heritage of American slavery, but his African ancestors may well have captured and sold other Africans to white slavers who could not venture into the malaria zone inland.
How could I dare to say such a thing?!

In Arabic the word "abed" means slave and it also means black man
Why any Black would go Muslim is beyond me.

Throughout Obama's entire life, doors were opened for him, his college applications smiled upon and favors bestowed simply because he is black -- the original victim category in America. Being black is the highest victim caste because of blacks' authentic victimhood: The nation once tolerated slavery and Jim Crow.

But ironically, Obama's father is from Africa: He never suffered from the ancient policies that, today, give his son Victim Gold. To the contrary, if Obama's African relatives had anything to do with slavery, it was on the business end.

nailed it! i've been saying this for a while. glad to see my thinking is in line with one of the great minds of our generation :)

now, i wonder if anyone else will push this thought around... you think American blacks would be happy knowing the president could be a descendant from traders??

"I guess that would be hard to do when the corrupt Democratic governor of Illinois is running around comparing himself to Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King Jr. and Mahatma Gandhi."

Also, yesterday on the Glenn Beck TV Cable show, Blogo compared himself to Mr. Smith goes to Washington.

He'd be a great sitcom character, but in real life Blogo's pathetic and insane. He seems to have learned much from the Clinton years.

Then I got a job at a bar under a dinner house.

Just had to eat those meals from upstairs every nite.

Gained a few but kept doing physical work.

Yep, the physical work will burn up plenty of calories.

And Ann looks to be pretty active. Judging from her toned forearms, I’d say she doesnt sit around the house and click on the remote all day, watching reruns of The View and fatoprah.

You tend to keep busy when you have a high metabolism.
