Conservative columnist Ann Coulter asserted on Sunday that Democrats were making a mistake by "dropping the blacks" in favor of Hispanics because rights for LGBT people and immigrants are not true civil rights.
ABC's George Stephanopoulos asked Coulter what she meant in her lasted book, "Mugged: Racial Demagoguery from the Seventies to Obama," when she wrote that feminists, LGBT activists and immigrants rights groups had "commandeered the blacks' civil rights experience."
"The way that liberals have treated blacks like children, many of their policies have been harmful to blacks," 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."
"Immigrant rights are not civil rights?" Stephanopoulos pressed.
