The National White Alliance, an alt-right organization, has decided to rescind its Caucasian of the Year award from commentator Ann Coulter.
According to the National White Alliance, the Caucasian of the Year award honors those “who have advanced the cause of white people.” This year’s winner was White House advisor Steve Bannon. Coulter and right-wing commentator Tomi Lahren were runners up.
The alliance said they decided to withdraw the award because of Coulter’s “personal choices.”
“After some new information came to light, we have decided to replace Ann Coulter with Attorney General Jeff Sessions,” said Brian Blanc, president of the National White Alliance.
Although Coulter has gotten wealthy and famous for making outlandish, often racist, statements, she has been dogged by rumors she dates black men. Earlier this year, a story resurfaced of Coulter being involved with actor/comedian Jimmie “Jay-Jay” Walker.
But FOX News’ Sean Hannity had a similar problem. Hannity was livid when he found out the Media Research Center had withdrawn his William F. Buckley Award for Media Excellency.
According to a CNN article, Christopher Buckley had lobbied against Hannity receiving the award.
“If we have reached the point where rank-and-file conservatives see nothing amiss with giving Hannity an award named for Buckley, then surely there’s a Milton Friedman Prize awaiting Steve Bannon for his insights on free trade,” said Bret Stephens, a conservative New York Times columnist. “The floor’s the limit. Or, in Hannity’s case, the crawl space beneath it.”
