Coulter Still Doesn’t Get Terrorist Threat!

In her celebratory “Happy Birthday to Me!” column[1] last Wednesday, Ann Coulter finally – finally! – acknowledged and highlighted terrorism in America. But then, she quickly reversed course, urging us to “Forget the terrorism”[2] and, instead, focus on immigration.

Still

After vigorously denying,[3] for almost a year,[4] the very existence of Islamic jihad in America,[5] Coulter suddenly spotlighted Islamic terrorism in one column.

Brief Recognition of Domestic Terrorism

An elated Coulter penned her birthday column, praising Donald Trump for her “best birthday gift this week” – his plan to stop all Muslim immigration into the U.S.

Coulter repeatedly used terms and phrases like “Muslim terrorist attacks on U.S. soil,” “radical Islamic terrorism,” and “as if the nation had come under terrorist attack,” suggesting that she now understands the threat posed by Islamists to Americans. Coulter admitted there have been “more than a dozen Muslim terrorist attacks on our soil in the last 15 years.”

Coulter even acknowledged, “there are more than a thousand active investigations of ISIS in all 50 states.” But Coulter’s only solution to terrorism is to stop immigration!

Coulter offered no ideas for what to do with terrorists who are already here. Further, she opposes stopping terrorists overseas! Coulter chided Rubio for his military solution to destroy the source of terrorism in the Middle East.[6]

Ignore Domestic Terrorism?

The very next day, Coulter reverted to norm, dismissing the process in which ISIS victories overseas translate domestic radicalization and telling Americans to “Forget the terrorism.”[7] So, Coulter’s seeming change of heart on terrorism was ephemeral, illusory, merely a trick to capitalize on the news of the day.

Why did her column last week focus so much on terrorism? She was not prompted to do so because of the recent terrorist attacks in San Bernardino or in Paris. Rather, Trump’s call to ban Muslim immigrants and refugees acted as a jump start to Coulter’s own anti-immigration crusade.

Coulter decries the immigration of over a million Muslims since 9/11, “as they continue to launch these terrorist attacks here in America.”[8] Coulter also attacks the folly (in her mind) of fighting ISIS overseas. Why? Because the San Bernardino terrorists (she calls them “shooters”)[9] had planned terrorist plots prior to the formation of ISIS. (Except, ISIS is an outgrowth of Al-Qaeda and all the Islamist terrorist groups have a shared goal of a global caliphate.)

Just as she has done all this year, adopting a very Obamaesque line of reasoning, Coulter dismisses the Islamist threat in America in order to focus on her anti-immigration agenda and to promote her book and her Chosen One: Donald Trump.[10]

For Coulter, terrorism is merely a distraction from the real threat to America – climate change. No, that’s Obama’s fear.[11] Make that, immigration.

What To Do About Domestic Terrorism?

Throughout this year, Coulter has merged domestic terrorism into the immigration crisis, when they are, in fact, overlapping concerns. Having subordinated domestic terrorism to immigration, she ignores it.

Coulter is zealous over immigration while dismissing terrorism.[12] Indeed, she refers to the San Bernardino terrorists as shooters.[13] Coulter was horrified at all of the attention paid to the Paris terrorist attack[14] (at the expense of immigration) and, in the face of the San Bernardino terrorist attack, Coulter again opposed immigrants, not terrorists.[15]

Coulter claims that immigration is the answer to everything!

Coulter’s proposal – a moratorium on immigration – would do nothing to stop those Islamists who are already here in America. Coulter neglects those terrorists, Islamists, and others who could be radicalized who already have their green cards or are American citizens. Coulter has no plan for them. Nor does she have any proposals to stop the radicalization of future terrorists.

And Coulter will attack you if you raise the issue!

Instead, Coulter commands us to “Forget the terrorism.”[16]

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]

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.

Coulter Aghast at ISIS Coverage

[There’s Far Too Much of It]

Ann Coulter’s entire column this week was specifically designed to be a wet blanket to the firestorm of ISIS coverage because she wants the entire conversation to be about immigration.

Aghast

Hence her denial that ISIS poses a threat to America.

Emulating Black Lives Matter, which was so incensed at innocent Parisian victims stealing their spotlight that they expressed profanity-laden hatred toward them, Coulter is irate that people are concerned about ISIS and refugees at the expense of her own pet cause – immigration.

It does not matter to Coulter that France experienced its own 9/11 or that ISIS has proven both its intent and ability to inflict monumental harm on the West in its pursuit of establishing a global caliphate.

No! Coulter cares only about immigration, which she constantly says “is the only thing that matters.”

Coulter’s column reeks of anger. Why is Coulter so angry?

Coulter evinced no shock, horror, or outrage at this horrific tragedy besetting innocent people. Instead, Coulter expressed contempt for those people. Even as civilians were dying, Coulter attacked the French people who were being slaughtered by Belgian terrorists.

Coulter’s anger, like that of Black Lives Matter, arose for precisely the same reason: the Paris terror attacks took the spotlight away from what she cares about – the only thing she cares about – immigration.

On the Night of November 13th

As the Paris attacks unfolded, Coulter retweeted twice. Her first: “If France responds appropriately, they’ll be called fascists. If they don’t, the fascists will keep murdering them.” As it turns out, the French responded appropriately.

Coulter’s first tweet was in response to “Gunmen shouted ‘Allah Akbar’” – she tweeted: “But it would be too expensive to deport them. That’s not an ‘adult’ solution.” Even at the beginning, Coulter was obsessed with immigration!

Even as the carnage and horror were ongoing, Coulter’s tweets were all political and derisive:

  • How does one say “Illegal immigration is an act of love” in French?
  • How does one say “DREAMERS” in French?
  • HOW DID THIS HAPPEN? French people ran onto the street with signs that said, ‘Je Suis Charlie’! Why didn’t that stop this?
  • Obama just canceled a speech about closing Gitmo.
  • Paris death toll up to 100. U.S. college students need to tell Parisians about real violence from Halloween costumes & “trigger words.”
  • ANGER? We can’t even deport 3rd world pouring in, committing murder, child rape, Ft Hood, 9/11 etc. It’s not “adult” com/JackChaerea/st… [Coulter responded to this tweet: “Anger is the appropriate response. Those who do not feel angered by this are defective in the head.”]
  • Diversity is a strength!
  • All we need is people rushing to the street with candles and we’ll have these savages on the run! com/Jomamuh/status…
  • Too bad there were no concealed carry permits … anywhere in Europe … since 1818.
  • Every year, the US imports 100K more Muslims to live here permanently. Rubio says he wants more. Why would anyone support him?
  • Can we all agree now? No more Muslim immigration. How is this making life better for us? But the mass immigration machine churns on …
  • What’s the upside of letting millions of Muslims migrate to western countries?
  • 100% of TV talk is @ fighting ISIS–IN SYRIA. Bomb away, but isn’t there something else we should consider? Like not letting ISIS move here?
  • Why does NO ONE say the obvious thing on TV?! It’s insane. Don’t want terrorism in US? Stop importing Muslims!
  • They can wait if they like until next November for the actual balloting, but Donald Trump was elected president tonight.

Coulter Emulates Obama

All year long, Coulter denied the Islamist threat that ISIS poses to Americans. To this very day, she still denies it. Coulter denies the existence and work of ISIS in the American homeland.

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.

Al-Qaeda morphed into ISIS. In that sense, ISIS is Al-Qaeda by another name. It is preposterous to insist, as Coulter does, that ISIS is not here in America. It has been since before 9/11. To suggest otherwise is ludicrous.

In an interview on The Drive Home (11/19/15), Coulter claimed: “ISIS didn’t stage 9/11 – that was different Third World immigrants. ISIS didn’t stage the Boston Marathon bombing – that was again different Third World immigrants.”

Sorry, Ann, but Al-Qaeda was ISIS in embryonic form. Other domestic terrorists have been inspired by ISIS.

FBI counterterrorism expert Dr. Sebastian Gorka warns that “ISIS is among us.” He claims “82 ISIS suspects [were] arrested in America in a 20 month period” and remarked that “FBI director James Comey had warned there are up to 900 ISIS-related investigations in all 50 states.”

In just the past year, 72 U.S. residents have been arrested on terrorist-related charges. Moreover, ISIS sleeper cells have been planted in America for years.

Breitbart reports “that over 250 people from the United States have attempted to join ISIS, according to a report from the House Homeland Security Committee. Also, some 82 individuals in the United States have been interdicted by federal agents as part of ISIS plots, according to a database compiled by Threat Knowledge Group.”

Tariq Aziz lives in Ann Coulter. [Aziz famously said that Iraq was secure even as Baghdad was being captured.]

France Should be Commended, Not Condemned

With the abdication of American leadership on the war on terror, France stepped up to the plate. Consequently, France has been the target of multiple attacks by ISIS (many of them, fortunately, thwarted). The terror cell which conducted the Paris attacks was also responsible for at least four previously foiled terrorist attacks and had been planning many more.

Today, Islamic terrorists have seized a hotel in the former French colony of Mali, killing at least three and seizing about 170 hostages, some of them American.

ISIS intends to subdue all opposition to its globalist plans and it currently sees France as its greatest threat. It seeks to takedown France as an object lesson to every other Western nation. If France is deterred, who in the West will be left to combat Islamist aggression.

Coulter is acting as a Quisling isolationist.

Coulter Flips Out, Again!

[Terrorists and immigrants are all alike!]

Ann Coulter has proven herself nothing more than a partisan hack, self-promoter, and shill for Donald Trump.

Flips Out

Not that long ago, Coulter insisted – against all reason, logic, and evidence – that Islamic jihadists posed no threat to the American homeland. Now, Coulter claims that immigrants are just like terrorists.

The pacifist Left rejects the very existence of Islamic terrorism, while, since 9/11, Coulter proclaims “all terrorists are Muslim.” Now, Coulter adds immigrants (non-Muslim as well) to the list. This is particularly surprising since Coulter claims 20-plus years studying immigration and has spearheaded a jihad against jihadists since the Twin Towers fell.

In her deliberately obtuse column this week, Coulter made some startling assertions. First, Coulter denies Islamic jihadism in America. Coulter’s denials of the Islamist threat in America preceded the publication of her latest book, continued throughout her book tour – even after jihadists attacked a cartoon contest – and she continues to dismiss the truth that the FBI is conducting ISIS-related investigations in all 50 states!

Coulter follows the Obama administration’s penchant for playing semantic games, distinguishing between various jihadist groups (was it ISIS, ISIL, Al-Qaeda, some other outfit), when they are all part of the same Islamic jihadist paradigm. They are all fighting for the same cause, seeking the same goal – an Islamic caliphate.

Yet, Coulter writes: “Not to be a stickler, but ISIS didn’t slaughter 3,000 Americans on 9/11, blow up the Boston Marathon, murder thirteen Americans at Fort Hood, or open fire on a military recruiting center in Chattanooga, Tennessee.” But, they were all Islamic jihadists!

Second, Coulter continually conflates immigrants with terrorists, as if they were the same.

In yesterday’s column, Coulter repeatedly dismisses ISIS and again insists the threat to America is from immigration. Her column title, “When the Third World Attacks!” misses the point: Westerners were not attacked by the Third World; Westerners were attacked by Islamic jihadists. Coulter, an adept propagandist, uses the Paris terrorist attack to stigmatize all immigrants (mostly from non-Muslim origins).

Coulter argues, that “50 years of the most backward, dysfunctional cultures pouring into the civilized world” have led to attacks by “immigrants” (not terrorists!). She claims: “second-generation immigrants are just as likely to shoot up Fort Hood as the first-generation Tsarnaev brothers are to blow up the Boston Marathon.” She calls these terrorists first- and second-generation immigrants to denigrate all immigrants.

Coulter decries the “endless flow of Third World immigrants” and “Stone Age people,” glossing over the realty that it is a particular group of Third World immigrants which is responsible for terrorism.

She makes the further claim of all immigrants: “We can’t assimilate them.” Again, Coulter is wrong. Many immigrants assimilate quite well in a nation which they love, even despite all the efforts of multiculturalists to turn America into a salad bowl instead of a melting pot. Identity politics is a major problem in this regard and Coulter embraces it with fervor.

Moreover, Coulter fails to discern what makes these Islamists unique.

Coulter comes close to the truth when she writes, “The Paris terrorists were 100 percent Middle Eastern, although most were born in Muslim ghettos in Europe.” But she again misses the point: Muslim enclaves are unique among those groups which self-segregate.

They espouse anti-Western and anti-Jewish sentiments as they teach Wahhabism in classrooms and preach it in Mosques. From childhood, whole communities are immersed in this virulent ideology. That makes them different from other immigrants. That turns them into terrorists!

For nearly two decades, Coulter has promoted racial profiling to catch religious extremists. Now, to target terrorists and criminals, Coulter wants to profile all immigrants (first, second, and, perhaps even third generation).

Coulter attacked native-born Gov. Nikki Haley for being an “immigrant” and contends that “all immigrants are bad.” In her column, Coulter defends xenophobia, because she is herself a xenophobe.

Unrestrained hyperbole helped launch Coulter’s controversy-packed career and it may well spell its demise.

Coulter’s Loopy Logic

In her eagerness to defend her indefensible position – (Don’t worry about terrorism in America) – Coulter bungled it yet again.

In the process of exposing the negative aspects of legal and illegal immigration, Coulter expressly denies the presence of ISIS in America – a bald-faced lie.

We have seen, time and again, how Coulter stacks the deck by redefining terms and misusing language. As I noted yesterday,[1] Coulter regards American-born citizens as “immigrants.” This is nonsense.

Loopy

How can we have a rational discussion about immigration if we call citizens “immigrants?” (But, at the very same time, Coulter dismisses the very idea that we are a nation of immigrants. Irrational!)

Coulter incessantly denies the danger posed by ISIS to Americans domestically, despite mounting evidence to the contrary. In her column this week,[2] Coulter ridiculed growing concern over ISIS by contrasting fatalities from ISIS and from immigrants, picking the Fourth of July weekend as her timeframe.

No ISIS Threat?

Her essay title began “ISIS: 0.” Coulter is WRONG – again![3]

According to a Reuters news report, “more than 10 people inspired by the Islamic State’s recruitment online have been arrested over the past four weeks, some of which were focused on attacks around the July 4 holiday.”

FBI Director James Comey “said dozens of people in the United States who are suspected to be under the influence of Islamic State militants have ‘gone dark’ because of encrypted data.”

Were people killed by these terrorists? No. The plots were foiled! If Homeland Security had accepted Coulter’s claims – and if the media had failed to report on terrorist threats – would someone have been killed? Probably.

In defending the Second Amendment, Coulter frequently touts the vast number of criminal attacks which are stopped because the intended victims brandished a weapon. Those stats are, understandably, difficult to obtain because many of those incidents go unreported.

Similarly, with due vigilance by Homeland Security and an informed populace, terrorist attacks can be foiled, as they have been in the past.

Terrorist Kill Count

In recapping “this week’s criminal immigrants,” Coulter includes cases from “last week,” “last January,” and “10 years ago.” Moreover, many of the incidents she describes took place in the distant past but she includes them because the suspects were arrested, indicted, accused of murder, or released from prison during the week.

Using Coulter’s own timeframe, well, then, the terrorist kill count is far from zero.

It seems as if there is a new report every day of threats against Americans in America by ISIS. Pamela Geller is one of those victims who will not cower to Islamist threats despite the daily reality that her life is in jeopardy. Here in America. Anywhere she goes.

Geller is a close friend of Coulter’s. Ann should know better.[4]

On May 3rd, a terrorist plot to kill Geller and her colleagues was foiled just moments before carnage was about to erupt at a Draw Mohammed Contest in Texas. Geller said, “This is a war. This is war on free speech. What are we going to do? Are we going to surrender to these monsters?”

Islamist Attacks in America Under Obama Administration

On June 24th, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was sentenced to death for his part in the Boston Marathon bombing in 2013.

On September 25, 2014, an Islamist beheaded a female co-worker.[5]

On November 5, 2009, Nidal Malik Hasan killed 13 people, injuring 31, in a terrorist attack in Ft. Hood.

According to a website tracking Islamic attacks, there have been 20 such attacks in America since President Obama took office. 44 people killed. 301 injured.

Fudging Nexis Searches

In her book, Coulter uses Nexis searches to prove a media conspiracy designed to hide the immigration crisis. She wrote:

“In a search of all transcripts in the Nexis archives in the first eight months of ISIS’s existence as a jihadist group, ‘beheading’ was used in the same sentence as ‘ISIS’ or “ISIL’ 1,629 times. During that same time period, it was used in the same sentence as ‘Mexico’ or ‘Mexican” twice.”[6]

If you choose a time frame which brackets major events or a significant series of events you will, by default, have results containing a preponderance of those events. Distorted criteria will distort results.

Surprise! There are more stories about Santa Claus in December than in July.

Of course, ISIS beheadings were in the news. ISIS was posting, seemingly almost daily, videos of beheadings and other atrocities. If it bleeds, it leads. Journalists, Americans, and allies were kidnapped, tortured, and killed. And videotaped! Children were beheaded!

Of course, ISIS beheadings were in the news!

The unprecedented expansion of ISIS justifiably caught the attention of people all over the free world. ISIS is now a terrorist nation – identifying itself as a new Islamic caliphate with global hegemonic ambitions – and, acting upon its self-proclaimed self-identity, the Islamic State has invaded and impacted nations throughout the Middle East and, with its savvy social media marketing skills (and the West’s failure to decisively oppose it), it has been enormously successful in recruiting Westerners (including many Americans) to its cause. It’s latest strategy is to recruit people as lone-wolf terrorists in their homeland.

Coulter sarcastically concluded her column with “Now go back to worrying about ISIS.”

Coulter accuses the mainstream media of exaggerating ISIS to distract from immigration, whereas, Coulter denies the very existence of ISIS in America to focus exclusively on immigration. Why not do what’s best for America and address both crises?

Ann Coulter … Dangerously Wrong!

As America braces for a heightened terrorist threat over this Fourth of July weekend, Tucker Carlson exclaimed, “Of course, we’re going to raise the fist of defiance against tyranny.”[1]

Meanwhile, Ann Coulter – fiery neoconservative turned xenophobic paleo-conservative – utterly rejects reality, claiming ISIS poses no threat to Americans in the homeland. All to promote her brand, her book, and herself.

Wrong

Yes, Coulter vigorously denies what everyone else knows to be true: ISIS is in America.[2] But, according to Coulter, the media’s focus on ISIS is part of a grand conspiracy to distract Americans from the real threat to America: immigration. (Not coincidentally, the subject of her latest book.)[3]

Even the Obama administration admits what it is reluctant to acknowledge (and what Coulter denies)[4]: ISIS poses a grave threat to Americans at home.

Coulter claims, “If you don’t want to be killed by ISIS, don’t go to Syria.”[5] In contrast, Michael McCaul (R-TX), Chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, warns: “They’re already in the United States. You don’t have to travel to Syria. They’re already here!”

ISISisHere

Coulter claims, “ISIS is not at our doorstep.”[6] Coulter’s close friend, Pamela Geller, warns, Geller warned: “ISIS is here. Islamic terrorism is here.” Will Coulter listen?

Yes, indeed, ISIS is here, posing a threat to every American.[7]

TerrorUSA

Coulter risks American lives to promote her own agenda and to sell herself and her books.[8]

Remember, this Fourth of July, Coulter is not looking out for America, she is looking out for herself.

Update: In the wake of the terrorist attack in Chattanooga, TN, on July 16th, we should recall Coulter’s words just nine days earlier: “Yes, it could have been any weekend. I’ve noticed, we’ve all been warned all week, ‘Watch out for ISIS! Watch out for ISIS this weekend.’ And no, instead, Americans were killed by immigrants.”[9]

ISIS is here!
