Ann Coulter Lashes Out Over Immigration: ‘Oh God, Not the Jews Again’

“Oh God, not the Jews again,” muttered conservative commentator Ann Coulter when asked about Jewish immigration to the United States.

She was responding to a question on Wednesday by BBC’s James Naughtie on whether her anti-immigration stance would also have applied to Jewish immigrants to New York in the 20th century.

Coulter went on to say that Jews did not “overwhelm” the country in the same way immigrants today do.

“That’s like 2 percent of the population — that did not overwhelm our culture,” she said. “We’re being overwhelmed. You’ve been out here in California, you go to neighborhoods and people aren’t speaking English.”

Hundreds of thousands of Yiddish-speaking Jewish immigrants flocked to the lower East Side and other urban neighborhoods in a wave of immigration more than a century ago.

In the radio interview, Coulter sang Donald Trump’s praises and said she agreed with his views on Mexican immigrants, calling them “rapists” and “drug dealers.”

Coulter also denied the claim that the U.S. is a country of immigrants and said Americans are “the only people on earth that aren’t allowed to have a home.”

“Everybody else can have a home. You see National Geographic and the indigenous people, and they love their home,” she said.
