Conservative pundit Ann Coulter took to Fox News’ “Red Eye” show Tuesday morning (Nov. 1) to talk about the recent news of past sexual harassment claims against Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain, calling it a “high-tech lynching.”

She says:

“I am not a fan of racism when there is actual racism. When they say opposition to Obamacare is because Obama is black, yes, that is B.S. When they go after Clarence Thomas because they want to
keep a pro-life justice off the Supreme Court, who happens to be black …
their only defense of this rotten president is, ‘Oh, Republicans are
racist,’ and then bring the nonsense charges. The same thing that
Democrats in the South accused blacks of for a hundred years: ‘Oh, the
over-sexual black man’ and then they turned around a hundred years later
and do the same thing. This is a high-tech lynching.”

Host Andy Levy asks Coulter if she thinks Politico, the website that broke the story, would have written the story of Cain were white. She says:

“I’m saying horrible, angry, feminist women hate conservative black men because they can’t accuse us of racism for supporting, you know pro-life positions, or supporting Herman Cain over Obama. Yeah, coincidentally, the two utterly innocent conservatives who have been falsely accused are both conservative blacks.”

Strong words. What do you think of Coulter’s position? (video via Daily Caller)
