I GOT 30 MILLION REASONS
Ann Coulter.com ^ | 7/3/13 | Ann Coulter

Posted on 07/03/2013 5:51:20 PM PDT by SoFloFreeper

We keep hearing insistent claims that if Republicans don't pass amnesty yesterday it will be the end of the party.

Can I see the math on that? I can see why bringing in 30 million new Democratic voters would be good for the Democrats, but how does it help Republicans? Maybe conservatives shouldn't blindly trust the calculations of the guy who graduated fifth from the bottom of his class at the U.S. Naval Academy.

If I were a Democrat, I would have tried to sneak this bill past Republicans by proposing amnesty only after reaching some easily rigged benchmarks. But, apparently, Chuck Schumer knows elected Republicans better than I do.

Step One: Everyone's amnestied. Step Two: After they're amnestied, they can bring in all their relatives.

If Hispanics voted 50.1 percent for Democrats, amnesty would be a bad deal for Republicans. But, in fact, they vote 70 percent to 80 percent for Democrats. How did it become an urgent priority for Republicans to bring in 30 million new voters, 80 percent of whom will vote Democratic?

Democrats want 30 million new voters and they will say anything to get there:

-- It's a crisis! Illegal immigrants are "living in the shadows"!

That's not a "crisis." At most -- and this is highly dubious -- it's a crisis for the illegal immigrants. But evidently, "living in the shadows" is at least better than living in Guadalajara. Otherwise, there's an easy solution.

We're told, "You don't know what it's like to live in the shadows!" Yes, you're right, and that proves it's not a crisis...

Coulter takes a lot of crap here for not being "pure" enough. Give me a break.

I take Coulter one article at a time. 3/4 I give a thumbs up. 1/4 I give a thumbs down.

I don’t consider her any more insightful than you.

(that’s a compliment BTW).

My thoughts are that the GOP is or has already alienated most or all of its base, and thinks that it has to create a new base for itself, and may be attempting to do see with this legislation.

But seeing as how they are incapable of selling themselves to anyone about anything, they are going to end up assisting the democrats in extending their base and leaving themselves alienated to just about everyone in the country.

Which is just fine with me, to be perfectly honest, because I can no longer see any purpose or reason to their existence other than to provide a boogeyman for the democrats to run against, and I’d just as soon the democrats no have that boogeyman any longer.

As far as Coulter goes, she mostly pisses me off. Every now and then though I must admit she makes a good point on something or other.

I saw her on Hannity a few nights ago, and she looked terrible. She’s too skinny, and she looks like she may have an eating disorder. I’m not sure if that’s the case, but she needs to get to eating.

She does NOTHING to sell the conservative message to the larger electorate and she tries to sneak liberal memes into our brains.

I’m sorry, she’s not worth a warm bucket of spit.

But what about all the other demographics that can take advantage of this disaster?

Are the mexican’s the only ones that get to reap the rewards?

I’d hate to see what the newly minted citizens of Dearborn, Mich...Paterson, NJ...Minneapolis, Minn....Lewiston, Maine...and elsewhere, where the US State Dept has relocated thousand and thousands of 3rd world ugly and Muslims.

Can’t wait to have a radical muslim as a sitting member of the US Congress. It’ll be great.

She takes a lot of crap for her girly crush on Gov Christie. Now that she is over it, she wants her place back as a best selling author. She is again flirting with her base - us.

I know. But, I’m going to go out on a limb and say they are more the prison, black muslim type. And use that to hide behind and give themselves some undeserved press.

I don’t think they’re wanting the caliphate. Hell, real muslims don’t even like blacks, so they’re really pissing in the wind with their conversions.

I'd say she's batting about .500. She has a snappy way of expressing herself sometimes, but seems to believe she's wiser than she is.

As for the Republicans: I've had more than enough.

Give you a break? I was a big fan of hers until she attacked TEA party thinkers and helped the democrats foist Romney on us. These are the same Democrats that she derides in this article. Next she wants to foist Christie on us.

She is so wrapped up in her cocktail party crowds that she has forgotten about true American Conservatism.

Give you a break? Yeah right. She gets the treatment that she has earned.

Ann Coulter is the CO2 of American political commentary. She's a lagging indicator, in other words.

Freepers are brilliant and insightful. Coulter knows how to copy and paste their thoughts back to them.

GOP called me today for some donations. I told them to pack sand ... and that I’m seriously tired of the traitorous activity, especially when it comes to illegal immigration. Even the gal on the phone agreed with me.

They can really all just GTH. None of them give two hoots about this country, or Americans. It’s all about their reward in Lobbyland ...

It’s not that she is too “ideologically impure”, except maybe when it comes to the homo agenda. It’s that she all too often cozies up to the Karl Rove RINO brigade, even though they seem to disagree with her on quite a few issues. So it’s more of a “the friend of my enemy is my enemy” kind of thing.

It doesn’t have anything to do with pure enough, it has to do with she’s a fraud, she supports Christie, a rino at best, she supported Romney early on, a rino, she dated Bill Maher, a liberal scumbag, and she calls conservative’s who disagree with her names.

You should give yourself a break and stop trying to get us to like her, she betrayed us, she is no different then Rubio or McCain, who you no doubt like too.

Coulter was well liked here, was a time when if you posted something against her you were zotted, there was an Ann ping list, I was on it, there were rules that had to be followed, ie posting here picture.

Ann burned here own bridge here with her leftist bent, we saw her for who she really is, those who support her still hold the same beliefs as she does.

As Republicans succeed in passing voter ID laws and similar efforts, shutting down dammocrap “voting of the dead” schemes and other methods of wholesale voter fraud, dammocraps have to create a new source of dammocrap votes.

Hence, legalizing millions of illegal immigrants to replace the previous dammocrap graveyard voters.

You may have misunderstood my position and of many here on FR, I will not read what she writes, most posters here have better insight then she does including me, as a matter of fact if you go back to before she wrote whatever this load of tripe is about you will no doubt find it mentioned here by a FReeper.

She like RubiObama is finished in my eyes, she is just trying to regroup to sell some more books to conservatives.

We also tire of her pimps coming here trying to convince us to return to the days of old as if nothing happened.

To make it even worse she dated Bill Maher, the lowest of low life fascists in America, and most who support Ann are Karl Rove, Jeb Bush, supporters.

Interesting. I'm supposed to prove you right?

I went to her archive. There was only one in 2006 that could be against what Bush was doing. The archive goes back to 2000. Bush wanted to do basically what Obama is doing regarding illegal aliens and I don't recall any conservatives talking against it.

No. Coulter takes, and deserves, a lot of crap here because she unapologetically helped the GOPe foist Romney on the party, and STILL thinks Pork Porkie would make a great president. I agree with the poster who said they take Coulter one column at a time. She's a northeast, "Log Cabin Republican" and seems to sell out too easily. Still, most of Ann's columns are very entertaining, and she is usually on the conservative side of the issues.

Those of us who DO remember 2006, though, do recall...in fact, that the amnesty push by Graham, McCain, Martinez and Kennedy was fierce but short-lived.

The Senate had defeated it by June, and Ann Coulter’s column against amnesty appeared in May.

The Senate plan for amnesty died mainly because die hard conservatives opposed it, and Ann Coulter was among those speaking out.

From the column:

Maybe New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie supports amnesty (as he did, via his appointed senator), hoping to be the last Republican ever elected president. There’s one for the history books!

But if Christie says he’s pro-life while giving the Democrats 30 million new voters, he’s a liar. Hispanics favor abortion by 66 percent, compared to 50 percent of other voters.

If he says he opposes Obamacare, court-mandated gay marriage, wants small government and loves his country while voting to give the Democrats 30 million new voters, he’s a liar.

Hispanics support Obamacare by 62 percent, gay marriage by 59 percent and big government by 75 percent.

If he says he opposes bloated, expensive public sector unions, he’s a liar. Look no farther than California for our future.

Instead of the elites bringing in another flood of low-wage immigrants to clean their homes and manicure their lawns (and vote Democrat!), how about we start getting some immigrants to compete with Florida senators and New Jersey governors?
