Coulter Attacked for Telling the Truth
We said the same thing twenty-three years ago
New York Daily News -- May 27, 2015
Ann Coulter says immigrants should be feared more than ISIS during a TV appearance promoting her new book
   Ann Coulter won't even share her germs with an undocumented immigrant.
    The sharp-tongued commentator has a bone to pick with immigrants, and she has a new book on the topic.
    Americans should fear immigrants more than the Islamic State, she said during an appearance Tuesday on Fusion's “America with Jorge Ramos.”
    “I have a little tip,” Coulter, 53, told Ramos. “If you don't want to be killed by ISIS, don't go to Syria. If you don't want to be killed by a Mexican, there's nothing I can tell you.”
    During the segment --- in which she promoted her book, “¡Adios, America!: The Left's Plan to Turn Our Country Into a Third World Hellhole,” she ticked off a list of grievances she has with other cultures: honor killings, uncles raping their nieces, littering, not paying your taxes and bribing government officials.
    “I think that there are cultures that are obviously deficient and if they weren't deficient you wouldn't be sitting in America interviewing me, I'd be sitting in Mexico,” Coulter told the Mexican-born host and his audience. [...]
    “It's not about race, it's about culture and poverty,” Coulter said. “The answer is, you're not black, so drop the racism crap.”
