Tortured and Torturers are All the Same

Ann Coulter wants to do nothing about the Christian genocide[1] taking place in the Middle East, so her apathy toward non-Christians being persecuted is not surprising. One would expect, though, that she could distinguish between the tortured and the torturers! Coulter can’t!

Tortured

In yesterday’s column,[2] a confused Coulter again conflated victim with victimizer, demonstrating yet again that in her mind refugees fleeing persecution are synonymous with their persecutors and no different from all those bad immigrants who are “hell bent” on destroying America.[3]

By Coulter’s own account, Kamal, a Syrian refugee living in Texas, fled a government which imprisoned and tortured him for protesting against the government. Kamal fears for the lives of his relatives in Syria who do not abide by sharia law. Kamal understandably wants his family and other freedom-loving refugees from Syria to be able to join him in the land of the free.

From Coulter’s perspective, Kamal is no different from his persecutors. Coulter asks, “Why would any country not jump at the chance to admit masses of people who administer electric shocks and remove organs as punishment for protesting the government? We must be crazy!”

Kamal is the victim, not the perpetrator!

Yes, Coulter equates a protestor opposed to government tyranny and persecution with the government being opposed and performing the persecution!

Coulter also claims that Kamal hates Syrians (because he fled Syria) but wants to bring Syrians to the U.S. Wrong! He hates the Syrian government, not the Syrian people. Coulter used to be more sanguine. As she noted in 1996, “It wasn’t that we hated the Russians; we hated the system, we considered them victims of the system.”[4]

Now, Coulter has changed her tune. Now, she is outraged at those who want to help persecuted Syrians. Sarcasm directed at the Times, Coulter wrote, “they’re shocked when readers don’t respond to descriptions of these medieval cultures by saying, What this country needs is more electric shock torture and organ harvesting of prisoners. How about we bring in some more Syrians?

Kamal was the victim of “electric shock torture and organ harvesting,” not the culprit!

Coulter next relates a gruesome story of Farkhunda Malikzada, was savagely “beaten to death” by “a homicidal mob in Afghanista,” “after being falsely accused of burning a Koran.” One local merchant, Mohammad Yaqoub, was “eager to join.”

Coulter, apathetic to all the victims of these Islamists, jokes: “Let’s get Yaqoub here. He can work at Lens Crafters!”

Coulter decries “the government’s plan to continue dumping these sick, sadistic cultures on us.” Again, Coulter confuses peoples and cultures. They are not the same. Individual refugees fleeing persecution (especially those actively opposed to the government and sharia) are fleeing the culture.

Ask Ayaan Hirsi Ali. She is a Somali-born, Dutch-American activist who has dedicated her life to end the culture of female genital mutilation and reform Islam.

For over 15 years, Coulter has projected her own unique worldview, one which posits good and evil with no shades of gray. Her paradigm offers only stereotypes. In 2002, Coulter claimed that all liberals are to blame for all the evils extant in the world. In 2003, Coulter contended that all liberals are traitors and opposed to civilization. In 2006, Coulter asserted the godlessness of all liberals. Now, she claims that all immigrants are bad.

Well, almost all. (She likes the white European ones.)[5]

In the end, Coulter seeks to restore a lost WASP culture in America and she seeks the permanent elimination of Third World immigration. She laments that the Obama administration has admitted only “approximately 12 immigrants from the British Isles.”

(Ann, non-white Middle Easterners also reside in the British Isles. Oh, that’s right, that’s why you want to use Tinder to process their applications.)[6]

  1. I don’t think Ayaan Hirsi Ali would agree with your championing mass Muslim immigration.
    She had to flee Holland because of Muslim threats on her life.

    Ann Coulter seems to like America she doesn’t want to see politicians or film makers beheaded on American streets

    1. I, too, am opposed to “mass Muslim immigration” as well as the cultural transformation we have witnessed over the past decade.

      Coulter, however, has, as one writer put it many years ago, “a starkly black-and-white worldview.” Consequently, Coulter often throws the baby out with the bathwater. In this case, reformist refugees who have actively opposed tyranny and sharia, and, as a consequence, suffered for it. Coulter’s column actually notes that this person celebrates Christmas and is assimilating well in America. Yet, she uses him to attack OTHER refugees. She treats this seemingly freedom-loving person as just as evil as the culture he fled when, in fact, he has been fighting against that culture!
