Ann Coulter Uses Paris Tragedy To Hype Donald Trump

662



Late last night while many were showing their support for the Paris community, Ann Coulter decided to use the horrific incident to shill for Donald Trump.

Paris

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

She took to her Twitter account to campaign for Donald Trump.

She makes this claim before the identities of the terrorists have been made public. They could have very well been French nationals that grew up within the boarders of France, yet she decides to jump to the conclusion that they were in the country illegally. This irresponsible behavior will not accomplish anything other than increase anti-immigration sentiment among her supporters. Her demagoguery did not stop there:

Her tweet was quickly retorted:

Tyler is absolutely correct which was echoed by another educated tweet when a Coulter supporter attempted to refute:

The International Security Program has kept track of domestic terrorism within the United States since 9/11, their findings show that indeed that more deaths have come by the hands of Right Wing Extremists (many of which proclaiming Christianity as their faith), than by jihadi’s.

Coulter makes this tweet days after suspects were arrested for plotting to attack black churches.

Betsy Woodruff of the Daily Beast reports:

News broke yesterday that the FBI arrested two young men under the suspicion that they were planning to start a race war by bombing black churches in their home state of Virginia. The men, Robert Doyle and Ronald Chaney, allegedly ascribe to an Icelandic pagan faith called Asatru that has a disturbingly large following among white supremacists.

The faith itself doesn’t seek to endorse or promulgate racist or anti-Semitic views. But you could be forgiven for thinking it does, given its strange appeal to Nazis and other sundry bigots.

Think Progress continues:

Traditionally, most American white supremacists claim to be Christians — hence the Ku Klux Klan, which uses a burning cross as its symbol, and the Phineas Priesthood, a group that preaches an anti-immigrant message and whose members attempted to burn down the Mexican Consulate earlier this year in the name of Jesus.

Coulter’s claim that closing of borders is the solution for curing terrorism around the world comes from a place of ignorance.

Courtesy of the New York Times:

But it is only the latest in a string of lethal attacks by people espousing racial hatred, hostility to government and theories such as those of the “sovereign citizen” movement, which denies the legitimacy of most statutory law. The assaults have taken the lives of police officers, members of racial or religious minorities and random civilians.

Non-Muslim extremists have carried out 19 such attacks since Sept. 11, according to the latest count, compiled by David Sterman, a New America program associate, and overseen by Peter Bergen, a terrorism expert. By comparison, seven lethal attacks by Islamic militants have taken place in the same period…

If such numbers are new to the public, they are familiar to police officers. A survey to be published this week asked 382 police and sheriff’s departments nationwide to rank the three biggest threats from violent extremism in their jurisdiction. About 74 percent listed antigovernment violence, while 39 percent listed “Al Qaeda-inspired” violence, according to the researchers, Charles Kurzman of the University of North Carolina and David Schanzer of Duke University.

So what basis does Coulter have for continuing to publish tweets like the following?

One can come up with many reasons on why they shouldn’t support Marco Rubio, but her assumption that Muslims are the main reason for domestic terrorism is simply false.

Her attempts to use this terrible tragedy as a pedestal for Donald Trump are without taste or compassion for the victims.



Ann was recently interviewed by Cenk Uygur of The Young Turks, during a fiery exchange which didn’t go down well for her.
