“That’s the direct way, the no-PC way, I’m even going to go ahead and call it the Trump way. We all know what it is- it’s simple, clean, it’s no-BS”
In a week when GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump and his son have gone out of their way to bash immigrants, Ann Coulter joined the attack immigrants pile-on by going after “second-generation immigrant” South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley (R) for removing the Confederate flag from the state capitol. Appearing on like-minded Trump booster Sean Hannity’s radio show, the conservative gadfly who has found a second act to her career during the Trump campaign lauded Trump for “going after political correctness.”
“He’s said it literally thousands of times before, I and many other supporters have repeated it just as many times, but hey, why not do it again: political correctness is killing this country from the inside out,” Coulter told Hannity. “I feel like that statement is so on point and so true and so Trump-like that I honestly think he ought to scrap the ‘Make America Great Again’ slogan and just roll with this instead. I guarantee it would be just as, if not more effective.”
The conservative author then turned to the recent deaths by police shootings and somehow managed to make them about political correctness as well. “It’s just ridiculous how far we go out of our way, how afraid we’ve become of saying something that might ‘hurt’ the other guy’s feelings. I mean, it’s just words, people. Newsflash – they were meant to be used, not printed out in a dictionary and then thrown in the garbage,” she said. “Heck, we’ve become so PC-sensitive as a nation that we have people dying on a daily basis throughout the country because cops are afraid to be direct when it comes to handling suspects.”
She continued, “I mean, you’ve got cops pulling over suspects and going, ‘Good afternoon Sir, I was wondering if perhaps it wouldn’t be too much trouble if you could just show me your driver’s license and registration? Oh, thank you kindly.’ It’s just ludicrous; I have no other way to explain it. Why can’t they just keep it simple and be like, ‘Do you or do you not have a gun on you, ni**er?’ That’s the direct way, the no-PC way, I’m even going to go ahead and call it the Trump way. We all know what it is- it’s simple, clean, it’s no-BS.”
Coulter also went on to say that if Donald Trump was a cop, there would “almost be no crime” in the country. “I’ve said it before, if Donald Trump was, by any chance, a cop or something, if he was in law enforcement, he wouldn’t just rid the town/city/state/region of crime; he’d also find a way to make money off of it. But, fortunately for some criminals, he’s going to be going after them another way entirely,” she said.
“At the end of the day, people like to call me a lot of things, and that’s fine. But the one thing I am not is a liar. I always call it like it is, no-PC, no-BS, the Trump play all the way,” Coulter added. “And if cops throughout America started practicing the same approach to handling suspects and going about their everyday job of fighting crime, we’d have this country so clean you could literally eat off the streets. I mean, I know a lot of people do that now – I’m not stupid – but they’re just poor. That’s different.”
