Stop Immigrants, Not Terrorists!

Ann Coulter’s column on the San Bernardino, Paris-style massacre by an Islamist couple repeats her year-long refrain: Stop Immigrants, Not Terrorists.

Stop Immigrants

Perhaps inhabited by the spirit of Obama,[1] Coulter cannot admit that ISIS and other Islamists[2] pose a deadly threat to Americans in America. Instead, she conflates immigrants with terrorists and focuses exclusively on the former while ignoring the latter.

Like the Black Lives Matter group that was incensed over the recent Paris attack[3] – not for the carnage wrought but for taking the spotlight off of them – Coulter was equally incensed that her pet cause (immigration) was overshadowed by the deadliest attack in France since World War II.[4]

Coulter deliberately conflates routine criminal activity and abnormal killing sprees conducted by the mentally ill[5] with terrorism perpetrated by Islamists intent on destroying America.[6]

Coulter’s response to the San Bernardino mayhem is to focus exclusively on the immigrants[7] and deny the Islamist threat already here.[8] Most of the examples Coulter regularly cites are of Hispanic immigrant crime, not Islamist terrorism.[9]

Coulter’s solution is to stop the influx of immigrants and refugees into America. But, at the same time, Coulter has no interest in stopping the Islamists who are already here. Rather, she denies that they even exist!

In denying the threat, Coulter preempts any possibility of combating that clear and present danger.

When Coulter discusses “immigrants” she includes native-born Americans.

For Coulter, unless your family traces its pedigree back to the Mayflower, you are not a real American.[10] Coulter falsely called Gov. Nikki Haley (R-SC) an ignorant immigrant.[11] In Coulter’s world, even Jews and Catholics are suspect.[12] In fact, Coulter refuses to countenance refugee status for tens of thousands of Christians being martyred by ISIS and other Islamists.[13]

As events unfolded in San Bernardino, Coulter tweeted (emphasis added): “Forget the terrorism, crime, welfare etc. Why are we bringing in ppl who are ugly? My Tinder immigration application process much better.” For Coulter, the only thing that matters is immigration. ISIS? Not at all.

Coulter opposes all immigration, claims all immigrants are bad,[14] and frequently cites selective statistics and specific horrific crimes by immigrants as if they were normative for the entire immigrant population. Coulter is wrong. Most immigrants are not bad people.

On the other hand, all Islamists (even those in America right now) are bad people. Failing to recognize that, and to profile accordingly to prevent future massacres, will ensure that future massacres do occur.

Let Them Be Martyred!

Ann Coulter has been actively working against the body of Christ in manifold ways for nearly two decades. Now, she would condemn tens of thousands of Middle Eastern Christians to torture and death – for being Christians – simply to promote her own book and her ideas on immigration.

In fact, Coulter would deny refugee status to the very people those laws were designed to protect: people persecuted for their faith. In that respect (as in many others), Coulter emulates Obama, who, likewise, denies refugee status to Christians suffering persecution, indeed, genocide, in the Middle East.

Martyred

Coulter claims that it’s impossible to only give Christian Syrians refugee status and insists, “We’re not letting in the Christian Syrians. We’re cutting it all off.”[1] Coulter falsely claims, “The asylees and the refugees are 100% fraudulent.” 100%? Coulter has examined every case?

Coulter insists that she would not admit Christian refugees who are fleeing persecution.[2] Why? Because, “We are not a battered women’s shelter.” But America’s refugee laws are explicitly and expressly designed to protect people persecuted for their faith.

1) Refuge laws exist to protect people persecuted for their faith; 2) Coulter admits Christians are being persecuted for their faith; 3) Coulter would deny those persecuted Christians protection.

Coulter said, “Needless to say, the mealy-mouthed, midway position of most Republicans is, ‘we’ll only take the Christians.’ Um, no, no, we don’t want the Christians – alleged Christians – for one thing, we have to take care of our own people first.”[3]

Talk about Christian charity!

America’s Refugee Laws

Coulter, who touts her experience and expertise as an attorney, is wrong (again) about the law. Andrew McCarthy recently explained America’s immigration laws and how they require consideration of religion, determining whether people are being persecuted for their faith. He wrote:

“Under the provision governing asylum (section 1158 of Title 8, U.S. Code), an alien applying for admission must establish that … religion [among other things] … was or will be at least one central reason for persecuting the applicant.”

The definition of refugee “(set forth in Section 1101(a)(42)(A) of Title, U.S. Code) also requires the executive branch to take account of the alien’s religion: The term ‘refugee’ means (A) any person who is outside any country of such person’s nationality … and who is unable or unwilling to return to … that country because of persecution or a well-founded fear of persecution on account of … religion [among other things] …[.]”

McCarthy observes: “In the case of this war, the Islamic State is undeniably persecuting Christians. It is doing so, moreover, as a matter of doctrine. Even those Christians the Islamic State does not kill, it otherwise persecutes as called for by its construction of sharia (observe, for example, the ongoing rape jihad and sexual slavery).”

John Nolte at Breitbart News notes, “Despite President Obama’s sanctimonious proclamation Monday that America does not have a religious test when it comes to admitting refugees into America, the actual math appears to show the complete opposite is true. According to CNSNews.com, who looked at the data, only 53 Syrian Christian refugees have been allowed into America, compared to 2,098 Syrian Muslims.” The Obama administration is perversely permitted entry to Muslims (who are not undergoing systemic persecution) but denying entry to Christians (who are experiencing genocide).

Christian Persecution / Genocide

Christian genocide in the Middle East is on the rise as Islamists seek to create a global caliphate. The Islamic State has seized large amounts of territory and operates with impunity in many nations. Islamists seek the eradication of Christianity and they do so in the most grotesque manner possible.

Nina Shea, the Center for Religious Freedom, says that Christians have been forsaken and abandoned in Syria and Iraq. Shea recommends viewing “Sing a Little Louder,” a video which cautions against the perils of ignoring genocide.

The Hudson Institute reports that “Christians have been executed by the thousands. Christian women and girls are vulnerable to sexual enslavement. Many of their clergy have been assassinated and their churches and ancient monasteries demolished or desecrated. They have been systematically stripped of all their wealth, and those too elderly or sick to flee ISIS-controlled territory have been forcibly converted to Islam or killed, such as an 80-year-old woman who was burned to death for refusing to abide by ISIS religious rules. Pope Francis pronounced their suffering ‘genocide’ in July.”

“ISIS atrocities against Christians became public in June 2014 when the jihadists stamped Christian homes in Mosul with the red letter N for ‘Nazarene’ and began enforcing its ‘convert or die’ policy.” ISIS pursues that policy with the ruthlessness of the Gestapo.

Breitbart reports: “Christian migrants in German asylum centres are living under persistent threat, with many fearing for their lives as the hardline Sunni majority within the migrant population attempts to enforce Sharia law in their new host nation. The situation is so bad that Christians claim they live like “prisoners” in Germany, and some have even returned to Middle East.”

 Reporting last September revealed: “ISIS has already executed thousands of Christians and forced thousands more to flee ancient Christian communities in northeastern Syria and western Iraq, notes the article, adding that the jihadists demand they either convert to Islam, pay an extortionate rate/tax, or face execution, while other Christians are crucified.”

“Christians have reportedly been crucified, beheaded, raped, and forced to convert to Islam by ISIS. All the while, Christian children are being sold into slavery.”

Nolte adds, “there is no question that Syrian Christians have been singled out for the worst kind of persecution under ISIS, including mass beheadings that do not discriminate against innocent women and even small children.”

Open Doors reports that every month, “322 Christians are killed for their faith, 214 churches and Christin properties are destroyed, and 772 forms of violence are committed against Christians.” Iraq and Syria are ranked third and fourth among nations persecuting Christians.

Those are the refugees Coulter callously dismisses as unworthy of aid.

Ann Coulter – Anti-Christian?

For over 16 years, Coulter has attacked Christians for being Christian. Coulter gets upset with Christians who actually live their lives according to their faith.

Coulter has called pro-life Christians “fascists” and “cowards”[4] for pursuing a pro-life agenda.

Coulter has defamed Christians missionaries as “traitors” and publicity hounds[5] for doing humanitarian work and promoting the gospel overseas.

Coulter has charged Christians who oppose the gay agenda[6] with being “phony Christians.”

Coulter asserts that Christians who oppose Trump[7] are bossy, proud, and seeking validation from liberals.

Now, Coulter would watch Christians die by torture and massacre – all in pursuit of her political agenda.

Ann Coulter is about as Christian as Barack Obama.[8]
