    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dxJOn98cRfw]Ann Coulter-Civil Rights Are For Blacks 'We Owe Blacks Civil Rights - YouTube[/ame]

    Coulter declared. "We do have a legacy of slavery and Jim Crow laws. We don't owe the homeless, we don't owe the feminists, we don't owe women who are desirous of having abortions or gays who want to get married to one another. That's what 'civil rights' have become for much of the left."

    Wow, I'm stunned. Republicans don't understand "equality"?

    Civil rights for so called minorities have gotten out of control so much so that they can effect legislation and in essence get away with much more than the so called majority.

    The problem is not civil rights, per se, but that of special identity politics, which both major parties play to the hilt.

    Let’s hope all conservatives aren’t this comprehensively ignorant.

    Our civil liberties apply to everyone equally, regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. The consistent application of civil rights is guaranteed by the 14th Amendment, and all the people retain the right ‘to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.’

    She's wrong. Civil rights are for liberals, regardless of color.

    Actually your point remains irrelevant to the discussion.
