Ann Coulter’s Jewish Roots

Ann Coulter has come under fire for what have been described as “controversial” (i.e., anti-Semitic) tweets. Given Coulter’s long history of anti-Jewish sentiment, why are conservatives giving her the benefit of the doubt?

Jewish

Before perusing the historical record, let’s examine Coulter’s most-recent tweets.

Coulter’s Tweets on Israel

Coulter remains single-mindedly obsessed with immigration (and selling herself and her book[1]), so much so that every other cause means nothing to Coulter, who has viciously attacked pro-lifers[2] and Reaganites.[3] Now, Coulter has gone after Jews and Israel. Anything or anyone posing a threat to Coulter’s agenda or her preferred nominee is fodder.

As for her tweets (emphasis added) …

Time Tweet
8:46 pm Huckabee admirably passionate on Israel. If only he cared as much about the survival of the U.S.
8:51 pm GOP definitely wants to protect Israel! How are they going to do it when immigration turns US into CA and no GOP can be elected president?
9:00 pm So glad I’m watching debate! Learned GOP is: anti-abortion, pro-Israel, pro-Reagan. I wonder if there’s any disagreement on immigration…
11:00 pm Good grief! Huckabee is running for PM of Israel.
11:05 pm Cruz, Huckabee Rubio all mentioned ISRAEL in their response to: “What will AMERICA look like after you are president.” [NOTE: The actual question was “world” not “America.”]
11:05 pm How many f—ing Jews do these people think there are in the United States? [NOTE: Coulter courteously bleeped out expletive so as not to offend. Answer: Almost 7 million.]
11:06 pm Maybe it’s to suck up to the Evangelicals.
11:14 pm Christie also talks @ Israel in response to the question: What will AMERICA look like after you are president? [NOTE: The actual question was “world” not “America.”]
11:18 pm How to get applause from GOP donors: 1) Pledge to start a war 2) Talk about job creators 3) Denounce abortion 4) Cite Reagan 5) Cite Israel.

In Coulter’s lopsided logic, affirmation of America’s commitment to Israel should be presumed but not expressed.

Coulter must know that there are many reasons for candidates to pledge support to one of America’s staunchest allies and the only democracy in the Middle East. Geopolitically, candidates employ “Israel” as a symbol of their worldviews and global vision: Judeo-Christian camaraderie and a united defense against terrorist, tyrannical, and rogue regimes. One’s stance on Israel presages one’s foreign-policy perspective.

If we’re not standing with Israel, we’re standing with Iran.

Notice that Coulter impugns the motives of all those who are “anti-abortion, pro-Israel, pro-Reagan.” She contends – as she has throughout her book tour – that they are “pandering” to constituencies (offering no evidence) and that they are cowards for not being single-mindedly focused on her preeminent issue: immigration.

The ease with which Coulter enters into scorched-earth polemics is astonishing.

Coulter Defends Tweets on Israel

Coulter’s self-defense began on the Kelly File, with her close friend, Megyn Kelly, lending support. Asked by Kelly, “Do you want to take that back?” Coulter said, “No” and claimed her tweet was part of a larger narrative condemning the alleged political “pandering” of GOP candidates who seek to check off “virtue boxes.”[4] Coulter again misquoted the debate question about how America would be different when the question was about how the world would be different. Kelly then quickly switched topics.

Coulter’s post-Fox interview tweets build upon her creative justification for her earlier tweets (emphasis added):

Time Tweet
1:15 am U weren’t following tweets. About pandering on RR Israel prolife. Last Q was @ AMERICA & 4 Reps talk @ Israel AGAIN! twitter.com/jpodhoretz/sta… [NOTE: The actual question was “world” not “America.”]
1:16 am All GOPs = prolife, pro-Reagan, pro-Israel. Pandering on all 3 tonight was EPIC. twitter.com/jpodhoretz/sta…
1:17 am There aren’t even that many Evangelicals to pander to (probably the intended Israel pander-recipients). twitter.com/jpodhoretz/sta…
1:28 am I like the Jews, I like fetuses, I like Reagan. Didn’t need to hear applause lines about them all night. twitter.com/Jimbobbarley/s…
1:32 am It’s not about Jewish people; it’s about Republican panderers. twitter.com/lilenchiladas/…
2:00 am It has to be read w/ prior tweet. Only 140 characters so sometimes they continue. Not @ Jews; about GOP pandering. twitter.com/RightForLife/s…
4:24 am @JoelCRosenberg Joel! I am a huge Israel fan! See my current book. I was attacking GOP for pandering on Israel (AND Reagan AND abortion).

Anyone who is “a huge Israel fan” could not marry the words “f—ing” and “Jews.” Moreover, if it was about pandering, why an expletive for Jews instead of the pandering politicians?

Who uses expletives to express love for a loved one? Yet, Coulter tweeted, “I like the Jews.” Do you believe her?

In that very same tweet, Coulter continued, “I like fetuses.” Since when? Throughout her book tour,[5] Coulter has vilified pro-life Republicans[6] for pursuing a pro-life agenda.[7] For nearly twenty years, Coulter has subordinated pro-life concerns for her own personal or political agendas.

Don’t listen to who or what Ann Coulter claims to be. Pay attention to what she actually does. Her claims[8] and promises are worthless.[9]

Coulter’s Jewish Roots

Throughout her career, Coulter has expressed antipathy toward Jews, from writing about “oily Jews” to wanting them to be “perfected.” These are not gaffes. They reflect her heart.

Coulter has a long history of anti-Semitism, stretching back to at least the early 1990s. In his first anticonservative book, David Brock “outed” Coulter as an anti-Semite, stating, “That she wanted to leave her New York law firm ‘to get away from all these Jews’ was one of her gentler remarks.”[10]

Consider a 2003 column by Coulter (emphasis added):

“In addition to having a number of family deaths among them, the Democrats’ other big idea – too nuanced for a bumper sticker – is that many of them have Jewish ancestry. There’s Joe Lieberman: Always Jewish. Wesley Clark: Found Out His Father Was Jewish in College. John Kerry: Jewish Since He Began Presidential Fund-Raising. Howard Dean: Married to a Jew. Al Sharpton: Circumcised. Even Hillary Clinton claimed to have unearthed some evidence that she was a Jew – along with the long lost evidence that she was a Yankees fan. And that, boys and girls, is how the Jews survived thousands of years of persecution: by being susceptible to pandering.”[11]

Pandering to Jews?[12]

Only Coulter (or an MSNBC host) could write of “oily Jews”[13] and get away with it.

In an equally astonishing entry on her own personal website, captioned “Who said Jews are smart?” Coulter wrote: “NYT Letter of the Day!: ‘Astroturf’ refers to protesters who disagree with me and therefore are not rational.”[14]

Let’s not forget Coulter’s infamous dialogue with Donnie Deutsch about “perfecting” Jews. To save herself from repercussions for her faux paus, Coulter claimed to be the victim and besmirched Deutsch with a wholly fabricated claim which fellow conservatives and fellow Christians bought into as if it were holy writ.[15]

Regarding her “f—ing Jews” tweet, the Anti-Defamation League immediately condemned her remarks, noting:

“While most of America has rightly tuned out Ann Coulter’s hyperbolic and hateful rhetoric, her irresponsible tweets during the Republican presidential candidate’s debate are truly a new low and must be called out.”

“Ms. Coulter is pandering to the basest of her base. Her messages challenging the candidates’ support for Israel were offensive, ugly, spiteful and anti-Semitic.  Her tweets give fodder to those who buy into the anti-Semitic notions that Jews ‘control’ the U.S. government, wield disproportionate power in politics, and are more loyal to Israel than to their own country.”

“All decent Americans should reject Ms. Coulter’s rhetoric as simply beyond the pale.”

Coulter has often said that she sets out to deliberately offend people,[16] and offend she does. Coulter has no filters. Also bear in mind that Coulter is explicitly seeking the restoration of a WASP culture,[17] one predominated by Western European (i.e., British) peoples. Jews and Israelis need not apply.

Update: As usual, Coulter claims her innocence. She insists she “likes” Jews. Does she consider “f—ing Jews” a compliment? An expression (epithet) of love? How can she defend her choice of words and how could she even imagine marrying those words to begin with? Did she greet her father, “F—ing Father?” How does she speak to her lovers?

Coulter told the Daily Beast: “I’m accusing Republicans of thinking the Jews have so much power. They’re the ones who are comedically acting out this play where Jews control everything.” But, wait! Coulter is the one perpetuating this stereotype that no Republicans have voiced. This is Coulter’s explanation for expressing anti-Semitic thoughts – that other people (who have stated those thoughts) are thinking it.

Coulter interjected, “This episode is not going a long way to disprove that [Jews have too much power in Washington.]” Yes, Coulter laments that Jews are so powerful that they are behind the backlash against her anti-Semitic remarks.

Coulter continued: “My point was this whole culture of virtue-signaling where debates are about nothing. Look, Republicans all agree 100 percent that we are pro-Israel, pro-Life, pro-gun. So why do we spend so much time on these issues? It’s just pandering, so who are they pandering to?”

Except, as noted above, Israel is a proxy for a candidate’s entire foreign policy perspective. Moreover, at this moment in history, with Israel (and Jews) under attack throughout the world, and with Obama’s complete surrender to Iran – who wants to destroy both Israel and America – voicing support for Israel is a good, moral, and rational thing to do.

Moreover, Coulter is a consummate wordsmith. She knows language and is proud of her expertise. The adjective “f—ing” modifies the noun “Jews” – not panderers. Indeed, she only tweeted about “pandering” after fallout from her earlier tweets.

Coulter defended her choice of words – “f—ing Jews” – saying, “I don’t think it was my language. I think it was ripped out of context and lied about.” Contrary to Coulter’s assertions, her words are clear and precise – and they reveal her heart.

  1. The truth hurts. When it comes to the chosen people, no one can say a word. They can insult , dehumanize, and support the terrorist policies of the neonazizioinist in Palestine, but they are above any criticism because they are the chosen people. Ann Cutler is nothing but media whor, who would say any thing to keep her name public. When she called for the invasion of all Muslim countries and convert them to Christianity, every fucking racist, islamophobic bastard cheered her, and FIX news was hosting her every night. Now she become persona non grata at the zioinist controlled media, when she told the truth, that all the GOP politicians are sucking to Israel, and acting as they are running for the President of the United State of Israel. Screw them all, why don,t they move to Israel and run for Natanyahoooo office!!!!!.

      1. So what? The point is that they have carried her column since the year 2000. Fifteen years. Thus your “persona non grata” depiction is false.

        As to “no one can say a word”, there are newspapers magazines, radio show, TV shows, YouTube channels, and books showering down such discussion hourly, daily, weekly, monthly and yearly.

        Facts matter.

    1. You are right. My research indicates that she has no Jewish ancestors.

      Coulter does, however, have a very long history with Jewish people, from employers and coworkers to friends and acquaintances. She is adept at cultivating useful relationships, but she is all too quick to attack and disparage Jews when it suits her needs. As she does with so many other groups, she appears to regard Jews as inferior to herself and her own ancestors.

      1. Thanks for answering. I think the question is not her regarding Jews as inferior but being disproportionately represented in power by acting collectively and unfairly to advance tribal interests. Also acting to promote immigration, multiculturalism, diversity, miscegenation for non-Jews in all Western nations except in Israel and so posing an existential threat to the white race.

      2. In our allegedly post-racial age, too many people – like Coulter – advance a specific racial paradigm to the detriment of society and those they purport to be helping. The Left has been notorious in that regards for many decades. Coulter’s own version could be accurately labeled white supremacism. Moreover, she has consistently promoted the reconstruction of a white WASP nation in America. Coulter often speaks of WASP culture, but she often makes it clear she really means WASP as in white (race) and Anglo-Saxon (British).

        See “Adios, Ann: Coulter’s WASP Fantasy” at http://wp.me/p4jHFp-7H.

        Coulter is also very confused, specifically, about the black-white paradigm in America.

        See “Adios, Ann: Coulter’s Racial Confusion” at http://wp.me/p4jHFp-7f.

      3. It is Jewish cultural Marxism which decided that America should no longer be a 95% white nation and it is Jewish left and right agitation which has filled America with non-whites and tried to stamp white people down and destroy their families and stop their women breeding with the promotion of Judaeo-Frankfurt school political correctness, feminism, ‘diversity’ ‘multiculturalism” and ‘positive discrimination.’ Jewish Hollywood has pumped out millions of immoral, drug, alcohol and crime promoting radio, TV shows and movies extolling every vice and inciting hatred for white people among minorities and trying to weaken white people with guilt for Jewish crimes like moneylender induced colonialism and the almost exclusively Jewish trans-Atlantic slave trade. Jewish Supremacism, arising out of Talmud, Torah and Judaeo-Marxism seeks to create a world of mixed-race, dumbed-down, low IQ, rootless Goyim that can be controlled by exclusively Jewish elites. It is only thanks to mind-control and brainwashing by the transnational Jewish controlled media that the vast amount of the American and European sheeple are taken in by the Big Lies. You may complain about Coulter talking about the WASP culture of the majority of Americans but you won’t complain about the ethno-nationalism and Jewish Supremacy of Israel; the wall to keep Muslims out, the race-based schools without any diversity, the expelling of African migrants to Europe and the fact that miscegenation and diversity are banned in Israel.

      4. I won’t complain about a Jewish conspiracy that does not exist.

        Israel is not an oppressor. Rather, it is a continuing victim of hostile nations surrounding it and of a United Nations which is ideologically dominated by anti-Semitic nations which target Israel for another final solution. Israel is the only functioning democracy in the region and it provides a level of freedom and prosperity for its citizens (Jew, Gentile, Arab, alike) unmatched in sharia-law countries.

        Liberal Jews in America, sadly, have supported Democrat candidates and policies which are often actually inimitable to Israel and to Jews.

        As for the societal ills in America that you mentioned, blame liberals, not Jews. Look at college campuses today. They are becoming anarchic due to political correctness, Marxist indoctrination, identity politics, etc. while, at the very same time, they are becoming virulently anti-Semitic and pro-Islamist.
