Time For Conservatives To Ostracize Coulter

I've not always agreed with Ann Coulter over the years, but that has been OK -- I do not claim that I am the gold standard of conservatism. Indeed, I have defended her at times, in particular after she wrote an overwrought post-9/11 column while grieving the the death of her dear friend Barbara Olson that ultimately got her fired from National Review. But I think she has crossed a line with her latest over-the-top comment, and it is time for conservatives to declare she has strayed beyond the pale.

Conservative pundit Ann Coulter said on Tuesday night that South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley (R) is unqualified to deal with her state’s use of the Confederate flag because she’s an "immigrant."

“I’d really like to like Nikki Haley since she is a Republican, but on the other hand, she’s an immigrant and does not understand America’s history,” Coulter told host Kennedy on her Fox Business show Tuesday evening.

A few points.

First, Nikki Haley is a natural born American citizen -- indeed,, she is a likely vice presidential candidate in 2016. She was born in South Carolina.

Second, even if she were born abroad, we know that does not mean Haley is incapable of knowing and understanding the history of this country.

Third, Haley's decision, even if I disagree with it (see this post, written before she announced it), is completely defensible,.

Fourth and finally, Coulter's attack on Haley is clearly based upon her race/ethnicity, because she would not make such mistaken claims regarding any white public official.

For these reasons, I believe the time has come for conservatives and Republicans to follow the lead of William F. Buckley, who read Birchers, Jew-haters, and segregatio ists out of the conservative movement in the 1960s. Coulter's words in this instance, taken along with the entire body of her work, shows her to be the sort of individual with whom we must refuse to be associated. If her liberal ex-boyfriend Bill Maher wants to hacer her on his show to be the token conservative, that is his prerogative -- but we on the right must say that Ann Coulter does not speak for us, and that she is not welcome at our events and on our platforms. Why? Because she does not and must not be our public face or voice -- and because said excommunication from our midst is the right thing to do.
