Ann Coulter: Deny Citizenship To The Blind And Wheelchair-Bound (AUDIO)

Ann Coulter has made a literal career of being a terrible person. She sells crappy books that promote her bigoted views, and she even refused to hug a young undocumented immigrant, and later proceeded to fat shame her. Well, Coulter’s anti-immigrant sentiments are making headlines again, and this time she has stooped to a new low. She is going after an even more vulnerable population of undocumented immigrants: Disabled people.

Coulter made a call in during air time to right-wing talk host Simon Conway’s show this week, and, of course, the conversation turned to what it takes to gain U.S. citizenship or naturalization. Even though English is not the official language of the United States, there is an English-language requirement for most people to gain citizenship. However, the requirement isn’t good enough for Ann Coulter, who expressed shock and outrage at the fact that there are exceptions to this rule, specifically when it comes to the elderly and the disabled. She even heavily insinuated that they “don’t love this country.” Coulter ranted:

“The INS has waived the English-language requirements for many immigrants, and it’s not just — that obviously goes to the heart of it, are you switching allegiance, do you love this country? — but beyond that, how about the wheelchair-only section? How about the section for the blind? Look, wish these people well, but we’re not running an international charity here.”

So making accommodations and reasonable exceptions for vulnerable people when it comes to gaining naturalization or citizenship is somehow “charity?” Wow. Ms. Coulter, you truly have no heart. You’re an absolute imbecile for even suggesting that we should send elderly people who know no other home, blind people, and physically disabled people away and disqualify them from seeking citizenship. Thankfully, the people who run the INS don’t share your hateful views. On the other side of that, there are many on the right, and many in positions of political power who do.

This is truly a new low. Who next? Five year olds who are here through no fault of their own? Oh, wait. You’re already attacking people in that position, the DREAMERS. You know, for someone who says she loves America and the values it represents so much, Ann Coulter, you’re forgetting one thing: This nation was founded on immigration. We are, and always have been, a nation of immigrants. Get over it, get used to it, accept it, or- how about this- you get out. Goodness knows we’d all be a lot a better off.
