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]

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.
