Appearing on Tuesday on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” columnist and author Ann Coulter said that leftist activists are effectively “creating, without realizing it, this really hilarious and ferocious generation of right-wingers.”
“Has there ever been a more obedient little cadre of robots than college students?” host Tucker Carlson asked. “Is anyone brave? Is anybody giving the finger to the man and speaking the truth? Where are those people? What happened?”
“Well, the good news is, I’m following a lot of them on Twitter,” Coulter replied. “I get the impression that we are creating, I mean, the left is creating without realizing it, this really hilarious and ferocious generation of right-wingers, these college students, they’re listening to white privilege all day, every moment of every day, white heterosexual men are emerging from college barking at the moon right-wingers.”
Coulter also said on the show that the United States is “looking at the death" of constitutional freedoms such as free speech and the right to bear arms. Carlson cited a recent Gallup study, which showed that 53 percent of college students think having a more "diverse and inclusive society" is more important than Constitutionally protected free speech. Noting that the Gallup survey had a breakdown according to blacks and whites, Coulter asked if Gallup thinks America is still living in the 1950s. Saying various studies have shown that while black and white Americans overwhelmingly support the rights to free speech and firearms, among recent immigrants (where Asians and Latinos represent the majority) show an entirely opposite position on those rights.
"What you're seeing at places like Berkeley," Coulter said, "is white students are only 30 percent of the population. Asian students, alone, are 46 percent. That's more than black and white students combined. That's why you're getting the biggest attacks on free speech at places like [University of California] Berkeley."
Later, Coulter said, "We are looking at the death of America's fundamental freedoms," and added that students should stop "pretending to be rebels" when they appear to be doing the bidding of corporate America.
