Ann Coulter Calls Fury Over Jewish-Debate Tweet “Fake Outrage”: “I’m Pro-Israel”

“It’s totally fake outrage from frauds who want to continue the dump of third-worlders on the country, including Muslim Jihadists, and voted for the guy who just gave a nuke to Iran,” says the conservative pundit.

Conservative pundit Ann Coulter, under the gun for tweeting about Jews and Israel during Wednesday night’s GOP debate, says her tweets were “ripped out of context, chopped up and sent out in tweets with inflammatory headings.”

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, she also says that the ones who are using her tweets to bash her are “mostly Israel-hating liberals and pro-mass-immigration Republicans. Both of whom don’t want anyone to notice how immigration is changing the country, putting Americans — and Israel — at risk.”

  • The Butterfly

    She’s right.

    • V10_Rob

      The only time liberals care about anti-Semitism is when they think they can accuse a conservative of it.

  • David

    She should not have said it.

    • Alain

      I disagree. Taken totally out of context and ignoring her record of being pro Israel is what this is about.

      • Everyone Else

        It was a good comment.

        The anti-semites all say that Jews control the media and politicians.

        The subtext of her comment is that there is a lot less Jewish influence than people think.

        There aren’t many Jewish USA citizens (1%?) and moat of the billionaires aren’t Jewish.

        Nobody needs the Jewish vote to win, and it was weird seeing candidate after candidate talking about Israel.

        Her comment was funny and effective.

    If what she says is true, then I and many conservative Jews like me, are into fake outrage, are frauds, are pro-immigration, pro-Jihadist, and voted Obama. No – all Jews are outraged by her comments, and they are clearly anti-Semitic comments.

      “If what she says is true, then I and many conservative Jews like me, are into fake outrage, are frauds, are pro-immigration, pro-Jihadist, and voted Obama. No – all Jews are outraged by her comments, and they are clearly anti-Semitic comments.”

      You might not fall into this category, but most Jews in North America are supporters of those very things, and by quite a wide margin.

      Odd that the old benchmark for anti-Semitism was being anti-Israeli, but now that one of the most objectively pro-Israel voices in America is now suddenly a ‘Jew Hater’ after one misinterpreted tweet.

      Step out of your own shoes for a moment and just think how odd it would sound if almost all of the GOP candidates started unconditionally praising Armenia in lockstep.

      • DBN – Armenia is not comparable to Israel. It does not play the same role, either in the MidEast or in world politics or in world history. As for Jews in the US, you say most voted Obama etc. but also most other people did too, since he got elected and Jews are only a small minority. Ann Coulter’s tweet is inexcusable – it is not a minor slip of the tongue, but symptomatic of a serious fault within her. As I commented before, this is not her first anti-Semitic coming out.

        • Drunk_by_Noon

          Ok, then replace Armenia with England.
          ‘Still sounds weird.
          Israel is important, but should it UNANIMOUSLY be the most important country in the world?
          Probably not to most Americans.
          Jews voted for Obama at 78% in 2008 and at 69% in 2012.
          The only group more dedicated to team Dem are blacks. Jews even outvoted the Hispanics for Obama in both 2008 and 2012.

          So, what other “anti-Semitic” thoughts has Ann Coulter expressed?

          • Actually, I was going to mention England before you did. Suppose the UK is about to fall into Muslim hands (which is likely soon), do you not think that every US candidate for president would be expected to pledge to help Britain? Would this be inappropriate in any way? Would Ann Coulter or you say F..cking Brits? You tell me – honestly.

            Israel is on the front line against the most evil force in the world today – Islam – a force which are dangerous not only to Israel but to the whole Western world, including the US. Surely it is quite rational and normal to wonder whether a candidate has the will to defend it. Israel was a close ally of the US throughout the Soviet period, giving the US oodles of intelligence and help. Still today, despite the US having a Muslim president, Israel is a foremost ally of the US.

            Ann Coulter is an anti-Semite. She’s a conservative, but still she has shown before her bad feelings towards Jews. These bad feelings have a religious motive, not a political one, as interviews of her in the past have shown. Give me a break.

  • Thermblog

    America’s original material support for Israel obviously had little or nothing to do with America’s Jews & these days it’s a mixed bag but there’s so much more to it than just U.S. Jews. Her tweet did not really make sense. I still supported her but standing four-square behind addled logic is wearisome. The Trump ego seems to be rubbing off on her.

  • OK, Ann, we know you are pro Israel- no matter how many F*cking Jews there are over there.

    • David

      Bingo.

    • Drunk_by_Noon

      F–k Yeah!

    Crap. Bitch blew my cover.

  • Xavier

    She who tooteth not her own horn, that same horn shall not be tooteth.

    i.e., STFU.

  • Xavier

    Fasten your seatbelts, it’s going to be a bumpy night.

  • Drunk_by_Noon

    Too bad most Jews in the U.S. today are more aligned with Sarah Silverman than Ann Coulter.
    She explained herself already and if that’s not good enough then wallow in your contrived outrage.
    The rest of us don’t really care anymore.

    • glasnost

      Agreed.
      What Ann is saying is that she doesn’t support US politicians pandering to American Jews, many of whom are not supporters of the state of Israel.

      • truthdareisay

        Then she could have easily said, “Those f*cking US politicians”…but that would not have gone over very well either with most of you, would it?

        • Clink9

          Umm. Wrong.

  • Brett_McS

    “Faux outrage from the pretend illiterate” was my comment at the time.

    Those tweets couldn’t be read as anti-Jewish by anyone who applied basic reading comprehension skills.

  • Jay Currie

    Twitter does not lend itself to ironic statements…But it is great at outrage, faux and otherwise.

  • Mal

    To be honest I always figured that Coulter is pro-Jewish. That effing adjective had done her no good at all, though.
    I’m sure that if she’d said something similar along the lines of “How many effing Christians do those islamic bastards have to kill before blah blah blah…?” there would be hell to pay, too.
    I don’t think it’s “faux outrage”, so much as honest outrage at a very clumsy remark.
    Not being Jewish – and as a person who pretty much has an honours degree in making clumsy remarks – I find myself gritting my teeth in embarrassment, more than anger at her.

  • truthdareisay

    Sorry. Most Jews I talk to are NOT pro Obama, are against mass immigration, despise the NDP and thought her remarks were, in fact, anti Semitic. Those who think she is just fine, imagine had she said in same context, “Those f*cking Catholics or those f*cking Christians, you guys would not be so forgiving. So forgive this Jew, if I no longer am a fan of Coulter’s.

    • David

      It does give one pause.

    • She can always do Sharknado if all else fails for her. She is crazy.

  • She is just like Pat Buchanan.
