Ann Coulter is at it again and by the law of cause and effect, that means Whoopi Goldberg is too.
The Caucasian conservative crusader appeared on The View (above) to discuss her newest book, Mugged, which is all about how liberals use race mongering "to promote causes that have nothing to do with blacks" and actually harm them in the process.
She tried to plead her case and insinuate that white people were afraid to convict "guilty black criminals" before the OJ Simpson case, but Whoopi got tired of sitting there scratching her head and shot back:

We couldn't be more proud of our beloved Muppets!
Although the Jim Henson Company had partnered with Chick-Fil-A this month to release make-your-own-puppet kits as the toy given with kid's meals, the production studio has announced today that they will no longer be associated with the fast food chain due to its public confirmation that they do not support gay rights…and spend $2 million funding organizations fighting same-sex marriage!
According to a statement on Henson's Facebook page:

We're almost there!!
In February, the Ninth Circuit ruled that Californian Prop 8 was unconstitutional. So supporters of the gay-marriage-banning bill sought to have a larger panel of judges rehear their arguments.
But it's official. They're just not havin' it. The Ninth Circuit has declined to rehear arguments over the statewide ban on gay marriage.
That being said, the case is gearing up for it's trip to the Supreme Court, where the final gavel could bang equality once and for all!!!
If the Court decides the case is worth hearing, a decision will come by

Being a pioneer in ending discrimination trumps not taking home the crown, in our opinion!
Jenna Talackova, the first transgender young woman to compete in the Miss Universe Canada pageant, did not take home the title during last night's competition, but she DID make it to the top 12, and was one of four other contestants named Miss Congeniality!
