Coulter’s Terrorist Protection Racket

Seeking to protect America from terrorists, Ann Coulter actually protects terrorists who are already in America.

coulters-terrorist-protection-racket

Coulter wants to ban immigration to prevent people who are or might become terrorists from entering our homeland. She cites specific examples of “second-generation immigrants” (e.g., native-born Americans) who have committed terrorist attacks. Yet, at the very same time, Coulter denies the existence of terrorists in America.

Coulter has repeatedly denied (again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again) the threat that ISIS poses to Americans in America.

As she has done for the last several years, Coulter primary – indeed, only – concern is immigration. Hence her repeated denials that ISIS is not in America and ISIS poses absolutely no threat to Americans.

  • “I don’t even care about ISIS!” – Ann Coulter, 2/19/15
  • “ISIS is not on our doorstep.” – Ann Coulter, 2/25/15
  • “If you don’t want to be killed by ISIS, don’t go to Syria.” – Ann Coulter, 2/25/15
  • “ISIS: 0; Ted Kennedy: Too Many to Count” – Ann Coulter, 7/8/15
  • “Are you worried about an attack from ISIS in America? I’m not. [ISIS attacks in America] are an immigration problem.” – Ann Coulter, 8/22/16

This, even as she decries the influx of non-WASP immigrants who might become radicalized Islamists.

Classic Orwellian doublethink. The terrorists are immigrants (who must be banned and banished) but, because they’re immigrants, they’re not terrorists.

Confused, Coulter can’t grasp that we are facing an immigration and terrorism crisis. Moreover, Coulter redefines “immigrant” to include native-born Americans.

Coulter wrote (9/21/16): “This is the doubletalk the public has been forced to endure after every terrorist attack.”

Yes! After every terrorist attack, Coulter claims we must stop immigrants, not terrorists!

Coulter and Kerry Agree on ISIS

In a Twilight Zone development, the far left and far right agree on ISIS. Fiery foes, John Kerry and Ann Coulter are in strange fellowship on ISIS.

Coulter & Kerry Agree on ISIS

In addition to sharing a warped perspective of ISIS and being northeastern moderate elites (one actually claims to be conservative[1]), Coulter and Kerry share many other character and ideological traits. (We’ll leave that for another time, though narcissism[2] would be high on the list.)

But, back to ISIS.

Both Kerry[3] and Coulter[4] claim that ISIS poses no threat to America and they absurdly assert that something else is the real existential threat (Kerry – global warming;[5] Coulter – immigration[6]).

One denies the nature of ISIS, the other its goals. Kerry denies that ISIS is Islamic;[7] Coulter denies that ISIS is in America.

Furthermore, Coulter[8] and Kerry are both appalled at the extent of media coverage of ISIS and each would like to silence the media.

Kerry recently said (emphasis added), “If you decide one day you’re going to be a terrorist and you’re willing to kill yourself, you can go out and kill some people. You can make some noise … perhaps the media would do us all a service if they didn’t cover it quite as much. People wouldn’t know what’s going on.”

Coulter ranted, “every time I turn on TV it’s ISIS, ISIS, ISIS,”[9] and said, “Fox was spending a bit too much time on ISIS.”[10] Coulter even regards ISIS coverage as a media conspiracy: “There are always going to be Muslim atrocities! Whenever the media starts obsessing with ISIS, I think you’re hiding something.”[11]

Propagandists[12] everywhere hate the truth coming out.

Coulter’s ISIS Denial

Are you worried about an attack from ISIS in America? I’m not.”

Coulter’s ISIS Denial

Ann Coulter spoke those words on August 22, 2016.[1] Long after San Bernardino and Orlando. Long after Paris, Brussels, Istanbul, and Nice.

According to FBI counterterrorism expert Dr. Sebastian Gorka, there have been 109 ISIS attacks in America in the last two years.[2]

Moreover, Coulter argues that domestic terrorist attacks by ISIS are “an immigration problem.”

Coulter has repeatedly denied (again,[3] and again,[4] and again,[5] and again,[6] and again,[7] and again,[8] and again,[9] and again[10]) the threat that ISIS poses to Americans in America.

Here are a few Coulter gems: “I don’t even care about ISIS!” “ISIS is not at our doorstep.” “Forget the terrorism.”

Forgetting the terrorism, Coulter blithely charges ahead with her anti-immigration agenda and rejects every effort to deal with those terrorists and would-be terrorists who are already here!

If Coulter’s entire immigration plan was put into effect, it would not prevent terrorist attacks from jihadists or radicalized Americans who are already here.

A moratorium on all immigration – which is her favorite proposal – would do absolutely nothing to address the jihadist threat currently entrenched in America. Under Coulter’s plan, American citizens who have lived in America for decades and been radicalized to jihad would remain in America.

As for the 9/11 hijackers, guess how many were immigrants? None! One entered the U.S. on a student visa, the remainder on tourist or business visas.

Emulating Obama, who dismisses the ISIS threat and refuses to even name Islamic terrorism, Coulter dismisses the ISIS threat and refuses to acknowledge its existence in the heartland of America.

Ludicrously, Coulter writes: “If your elected representative is talking to you about ISIS, he’s planning to outsource your job and move Syrian refugees into your neighborhood.”

Coulter is acting as a Quisling isolationist.

Wake up, Ann Coulter!

Coulter Still Lying After All These Years

In her propagandistic column last week,[1] Coulter offered up 11 examples of “non-white immigrant” “mass murder” from 1993-2015. Coulter’s list is nonsensical and meaningless, but meaningless with a mission – to promote her own agenda.[2]

Coulter cleverly culled 11 examples from over the space of 23 years to prove that non-white immigrants are more dangerous that white citizens.

StillLying

Her list is fraudulent, emphasizing the race/origin of the culprits while ignoring the reason or motivation for the violence.[3] Indeed, she does what so many on the Left do: conflate crime, insane shooting sprees, and terrorism – as if they were the same.[4]

Combining a botched robbery, shooting sprees by the mentally ill, and coordinated attacks by Islamic terrorists negates any possibility of developing a clear profile or strategy to combat or deter the violence.

Coulter’s List of Non-White Immigrant Villains

Notice that Coulter’s 11 examples of non-white immigrant mass shootings include seven incidents by the mentally ill, one botched robbery (which, by definition, is not a mass shooting), one incident of workplace violence (and probably mental illness as well), and one coldly calculated terrorist attack.

 

Name Status Killed Injured Comments
Chris Harper-Mercer “mixed-race, half-black immigrant” 9 7-9 Mental illness
Elliot Rodger “mixed-race immigrant” 6 14 Mental illness
Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev “Chechen immigrants” 3 264 Islamic terrorists
Kesler Dufrene “Haitian immigrant” 3 0 Botched robbery
Eduardo Sencion “Mexican immigrant” 3 0 Mental illness
Nidal Malik Hasan “second-generation immigrant” 13 30 Islamic terrorist
Jiverly Wong “first-generation Vietnamese immigrant” (actually a naturalized American citizen) 13 4 Mental illness
Seung-Hui Cho “Korean immigrant” 32 17 Mental illness
Colin Ferguson “Jamaican immigrant” 6 19 Mental illness
Sulejman Talovic “Bosnian immigrant” 5 4 Mental illness
Salvador Tapia “Mexican immigrant” 6 0 Workplace violence

 

Coulter’s contrived list of “immigrants” committing crimes is just that – contrived. Coulter knows the truth. Just two months ago, Coulter wrote (emphasis added): But I notice that every mass murder is committed by someone who is mentally ill. When the common denominator is a characteristic found in about 0.1 percent of the population – I think we’ve found the crucial ingredient!”[5]

Nevertheless, Coulter now distinguishes between non-white immigrant shootings and white non-immigrant shootings, all to promote her anti-immigrant book and agenda.

Mental illness is defined by neither race nor ethnic origin. Neither is it confined to one’s immigration or citizenship status. Coulter used her column to distract from the Islamic jihad[6] taking place as she wrote her column and to thrust immigration back into the spotlight.

Coulter’s Obsession with Whites

Throughout her book tour, Coulter has lionized whites as the Founders of America and saviors of the world[7] and vilified non-WASP cultures[8] as “primitive,” “savage,” “barbarian.” Indeed, for Coulter, “all immigrants are bad.”[9]

In her column, Coulter correctly indicted the media with an anti-white bias, writing, “The media are tickled pink whenever they have a white perpetrator because it happens so rarely in a country that is majority white.”

Coulter’s conclusion, however, is fraudulent. She claims (emphasis added): “After 20 years of nearly non-stop mass murder by non-white immigrants in a country that is still majority white, our media have the audacity to claim that tens of thousands of Syrian Muslims are less dangerous than the most pacific human beings in world history: 21st-century white American men.”

Coulter was very selective in her choice of mass shootings to highlight (almost all of them derived from her book) to place an anti-immigrant slant to the discussion. Of course, she ignored many high-profile cases which refute her contention that “the most pacific human beings in world history [are] 21st-century white American men.”

We could begin with Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, whose 1999 Columbine, CO, massacre has become the model and inspiration for others. Harris and Klebold killed 13 and injured 21.

Here are a few of the more recent “mass shootings” committed by Coulter’s “pacific” white men:

 

Name Location Killed Injured Comments
Robert Lewis Dear Jr. Colorado Springs, CO 3 9 Mental illness
Dylan Roof Charleston, SC 9 1 White supremacist
John Russell Houser Lafayette, LA 2 9 Mental illness
Chris Harper Mercer Roseburg, OR 9 9 Mental illness
James Eagan Holmes Aurora, CO 12 70 Mental illness
Ryan Lanza Newtown, CT 28 2 Mental illness
Jared Lee Loughner Tucson, AZ 6 13 Mental illness

 

As with Coulter’s anti-immigrant list, most of the perpetrators listed above committed mayhem while mentally ill. One could argue the white supremacist in this list is also mentally ill. Immigration status had nothing to do with any of these tragedies. Whiteness – or Otherness – is not germane.

From the beginning, the San Bernardino attack had all the hallmarks of a Paris-style terrorist attack. The only question was by whom. In an astonishing tweet, Coulter totally missed the mark, tweeting: “This was an amazingly prescient column. I should have gone with my original subhead: ODDS ARE IT’S NOT WHITE MEN.”

Coulter, obsessed with race,[10] fails to grasp that this was an ISIS-inspired terrorist attack on U.S. soil – just as her column dismissed the threat posed by ISIS to Americans in America.

Coulter was wrong at the beginning of this year when she claimed “ISIS is not on our doorstep[11] and she is wrong now when she shrugs off domestic terrorism.[12]
