Conservative commentator on why Super Bowl shooter couldn’t have been a White male

Ann Coulter Bill Maher Super Bowl Kansas City shooting White male

Conservative commentator Ann Coulter has explained why she believes a gunman that killed one and injured 22 at the Kansas City Super Bowl parade could not have been a White male.

In an appearance on HBO’s Real Time With Bill Maher alongside left-wing pundit Van Jones on Friday, Coulter responded to the host’s claim that the shooter was unknown by saying: “If it were a White man shooting, we’d know”.

When Maher replied that the race of the shooter has not been revealed, Coulter countered: “That’s how we know it’s not a White man. I can tell you that much.”

“You think they were repressing that reporting?” Maher asked.

“They wouldn’t tell us about the transgender woman [sic] that shot up the Christian school for, what, like a year? Oh, San Bernardino out here. Remember the crazy terrorist Muslims? That’s when I first noticed. Hmm, they’re not telling us who it is. It’s not a White male,” Coulter answered.

“The longer they go without telling you, it’s not a White male.”

Maher replied: “We don’t officially know. Okay, you know, you have special powers”. To which Coulter said: “we’ll see”.

Two juveniles have been charged with crimes connected to the shooting so far, and although police have not identified them TMZ footage appears to show young Black males facing off moments before gunfire erupted.

Maher and Jones seemed unaware that this is not the first time Coulter has applied the theory, despite her reference to the San Bernardino terrorist attack.

Her 2015 tweet about the shooting read “The longer we go without being told the race of the shooters, the less likely it is to be White men. #sorryNYT”, and the observation has since become known as Coulter’s Law.

Coulter’s Law rests on the idea that the mainstream media’s liberal bias makes journalists more reluctant to write negative stories about non-Whites, due to concern that reporting on crimes committed by minorities is racist and/or will cause a racist response.

Therefore there will be no hesitation identifying a mass shooter confirmed as a White man, but journalist will take extra care before revealing that a gunman is non-White, transgender or Muslim, and sometimes will not publish identifying characteristics at all.

Another theory popular among conservatives, named Sailer’s Law of Mass Shootings after journalist Steve Sailer, also suggests that the Kansas City shooter was not White.

Sailer’s theory is that if wounded outnumber killed in a mass shooting, the shooter is likely Black.

UPDATE 20/02/2024: Ann Coulter and Steve Sailer were right.
