If you know anything about Ann Coulter, then you know she’s prone to running off at the mouth and saying ridiculous things. Which brings us to Wednesday of this week, when the dunderheaded Ms. Coulter decided to write a column for WorldNetDaily in which she declared that illegal immigrants are a bigger threat to the United States than the terrorist group ISIS.
Here’s exactly what Coulter wrote in her hateful, paranoid screed:
“ISIS has killed four Americans–in Syria. We’re not exactly talking about another 9/11. Here’s a tip: If you don’t want to be killed by ISIS, don’t go to Syria. Meanwhile, illegal aliens have killed, raped and maimed thousands of Americans-– in America. If you don’t want to be killed, raped or maimed by illegal immigrants in your own country, I have no tips for you. There’s nothing you can do. You’re on your own. Good luck.”
Not surprisingly, Ann didn’t bother to provide any documentation for her claims that thousands of Americans have been killed by illegal immigrants. She also didn’t take the time to mention that she is opposed to virtually everything President Obama or Democrats have suggested when it comes to the issue of immigration. No need to do that when all you’re really aiming to do is either scare people or confirm their biases.
Coulter proceeded to blame the media for not reporting on illegal immigration. Boy, that’s original, Ann! But she says it so much better than I could ever hope to:
“ISIS is not at our doorstep. Illegal immigrants are not only at our doorstep, but millions of them are already through the door, murdering far more Americans than ISIS ever will. But politicians and the media only want to give us war, while aiding the enemy in the war we’re already in, here at home.”
Does Coulter offer any solutions? Perhaps we should carpet bomb the U.S.-Mexican border, Ann. Would that make you happy? Or maybe you prefer using drones to shoot Hellfire missiles at women and children attempting to cross into the United States for economic and safety reasons.
Neither Coulter nor any of her right wing brethren have any answers other than more hate and fear, and there’s already way too much of that in America.
