Ann Coulter Says Tie Immigrants To Rape, Murder, Incest And ‘Peasant Culture’

Right-wing xenophobe and ardent racist Ann Coulter is sinking to new lows in preparation for her next book, Adios America. The conservative columnist and author of 10 New York Times bestsellers has decided it would be a good idea to bash what she calls “the browning of America” (whatever that means) and the “peasant culture” of Hispanics to promote her book at the Metropolitan Republican Club in New York. The target audience? Equally xenophobic and racist Republicans.

Yes, if you actually support and buy the products of someone who says immigrants are the “browning of America,” you are a racist.

Calling Hispanic culture the “peasant culture” and referring to their immigration as “the browning of America” is not a good way to go if you want the Hispanic vote. And considering Republicans have lost the Hispanic vote in every presidential election since at least 1992 — keep putting her on a pedestal, Republicans! She and Phyllis Schlafly are really helping you with that short-run outreach program you attempted after the 2012 election.

Cedar Attanasio of the L.A. Times wrote on his experience going to the Coulter promotion at the Club in New York:

“Though she complains that she can’t find accurate statistics on immigrant-perpetrated crime, she confidently tied the word ‘immigrant’ to ‘rape,’ ‘incest’ and ‘murder.’ Still, she stressed that she’s not against any racial group of Americans, just immigrants. Then she cites a statistic like this ‘In Denmark, actual Danes come in 10th in the nationality most likely to be in prison.’ (I’m trying really, really hard to find out where this is from; no word yet from Team Coulter).”

That’s the Republican way: We can’t find those pesky facts, but dang it, we’ll say it anyway! And on top of that, their audience will be stupid enough to blindly believe it.

At the Club, during a Q & A session, when a white, undocumented Canadian immigrant told Coulter she was dodging U.S. property taxes, “Coulter responded by sympathizing with the difficulties that Canadian and European immigrants have getting green cards.”

Such a stark difference in attitude. But no, she’s not racist, right? She’s just a concerned American! Never mind that a white illegal immigrant is avoiding paying taxes, the Republicans are more concerned about the illegal immigrants making our food products cheaper! And why is that? Well, because the latter are responsible for the “browning of America.” To people like Ann Coulter, it’s not about the status, the jobs, or the “welfare” usage. It’s about race. They can’t let go of the hope that America will always stay a majority white country.

Hopefully, with people like this in their party, we can say, “Adios, GOP.”
