Ann Coulter mocked the media for hyping an ‘alt-right’ gathering of neo-Nazis and white supremacists, which she branded as “irrelevant” during a stream of angry Tweets.
The far right media personality downplayed the importance of the racists who spewed anti-Semitic hate at a weekend celebration of Donald Trump’s White House win, saying they had no real ties to Trump or his incoming administration.
She lashed out at the media, taking special aim at MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, for focusing on the white supremacists and their leader Richard Spencer, while ignoring MSNBC host Rev. Al Sharpton and his ties to Democrats.
Coulter also repeated her claims that the white supremacists are harmless, especially compared to Black Lives Matter protesters, whom she accuses of fomenting racial hate against whites.
Rachel shows FIVE PEOPLE at Richard Spencer meeting giving a Nazi salute. Call out the National Guard. Cf. Ferguson protests.— Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) November 22, 2016
10 to 1 Rachel opens with Nazi salute at meeting of 30 people in DC this weekend. 9pm: "Okay. in 1919 the Treaty of Versailles…"— Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) November 22, 2016
The point, brainless sack-of-sh*t, is that Nazis (not connected w/ GOP) = irrelevant; MSNBC's Sharpton (connected at hip to Dems) = 9 dead. https://t.co/vVMGEcNrqN— Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) November 22, 2016
There is NO cnxn btwn Amer Nazi Party & Trump. However, every Dem presidential candidates is required to kiss Al Sharpton's ring. DISAVOW!— Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) November 22, 2016
