When Will Conservatives Reject Coulter’s Anti-Semitism?

Reject Coulter's Anti-Semitism

Coulter has a long history of anti-Semitism, stretching back to at least the early 1990s. In the wake of her Effing Jews tweets, Coulter claimed to be pro-Semitic, employing arguments worthy of an Orwellian dictator. Coulter even enlisted the aid of her conservative friends to prove her noble and just. Those efforts abysmally failed. Her Orwellian newspeak and doublethink was exposed for what it is.

Then Coulter went after Catholics. Now she has retargeted her preferred object of hatred: Jews.

Why attack Jews and Catholics? Because they do not fit into her utopian dream of a restored WASP nation. Coulter is ecstatic over Trump’s transformation of the GOP into a new Know-Nothing Party which is anti-immigrant, anti-Catholic, and anti-Jew.

The Alt-Right and David Duke have eagerly embraced Donald Trump and his (and Coulter’s) message.

Will conservatives join the Never Trump movement and denounce this latest instance of anti-Semitism by Trump’s consigliere?

Effing Ann?

Christian evangelical Ann Coulter loves profanity. She uses it both privately and publicly. She has even been bleeped during on-air interviews.

Effing Ann

[Profanity alert!]

Coulter shouted “Fuck you” to a blogger covering one of her speeches. She told a reporter, “saying ‘Merry Christmas’ is like saying ‘Fuck you!’ I’ve said it to everyone.”

Immediately after one TV interview, Coulter erupted, “Fuck him! … Fuck Rush.”[1]

In yet another interview, Coulter exclaimed, “Can you imagine the Irish or Italians or Germans saying that to our country back at the turn of the century? ‘No! Fuck you! You came to our country. Learn our ways!’”[2]

Euphemisms figure prominently in Coulter’s lexicon, substituting “effing” to characterize and demonize  individuals and entire groups of people.

One too many anti-Semitic tweets[3] prompted her banishment from Fox News[4] and other conservative outlets. Her attempts to rationalize her anti-Semitism failed miserably.[5] Coulter claimed “effing Jews” referred to quantity and not quality; that, in fact, it was sort of an endearment.

In 2016, Coulter reprised her anti-Semitic commentary,[6] prompting even friends to be ashamed for ever having known her.[7] The question – Is Ann Coulter anti-Semitic?[8] – must be answered, “Yes.”

But Coulter is an Equal Opportunity Offender,[9] going out of her way to be offensive. She blithely employs her “effing” endearment to others, including Arabs. Contradicting her cultivated sense of refinement, Coulter argues, “I promise you out-of-work steel workers could not give two f***s.”

Coulter prides herself on her Buckleyesque language skills. Vulgarity diminishes, rather than enhances, her message. It also offers up a window into her heart.
