Another Ann Coulter Column

This immigration debate is really bringing out the best in Ann (at least from my perspective of wanting to make fun of her). In here latest column, Ann wishes that Congress in the 60s had banned Irish Americans, so as to keep Ted Kennedy out. Nice.

She then bemoans the fate of the lowly whites. Poor white people.
In 1960, whites were 90 percent of the country. The Census Bureau recently estimated that whites already account for less than two-thirds of the population and will be a minority by 2050. Other estimates put that day much sooner.

One may assume the new majority will not be such compassionate overlords as the white majority has been. If this sort of drastic change were legally imposed on any group other than white Americans, it would be called genocide.
Incidentally I suspect that her description of the White Majority as "compassionate overlords" is not ironic; she really believes that Whites have acted as compassionate overlords.

You could write a whole article about the phrase "compassionate overlords" couldn't you? This would be a good time to point out the underlining racism in many (but not all) conservatives attacks on the immigration bill, but since I've done it so often, let's just consider the point made.

The rest of her article she complains about the difficulty in emigrating from America. This is one of those articles that more clearly shows her background as a spoiled rich white girl, whining because she can't everything just the way she wants it.
