Anti-Immigrant Activist: 'Child Rapists' Coming To The US Because They’ll Get Off Easier In The Justice System

Earlier this month, Tamara Scott, a conservative lobbyist and Republican national committeewoman from Iowa, invited anti-immigration activist Jim Simpson onto her weekly radio program to discuss Donald Trump’s claims that Mexican immigrants are rapists, which Simpson heartily agreed with.

Simpson, who recently authored a report for the Center for Security Policy on how communists and Islamists are using immigration to destroy America, acknowledged that immigrants may be fleeing failing states, but added that “many” of them come to the U.S. because a fairer justice system means “they can have an easier time committing crime over here.”

“Many of the people that cross the border illegally do so because they’re people that that country just doesn’t want, and they’re coming over here because there are greener pastures over here, they can have an easier time committing crime over here,” he explained.

“We have a legal system that is much more favorable to the defendant than, let’s say, Mexico, where a lot of these child rapists wouldn’t last a week in a Mexico prison, and so they come here instead. And that’s a big part of the problem. We’re attracting all kinds of very, very bad people by our loose immigration policies and our open borders policies being promoted by this, as far as I’m concerned, treasonous president.”

Scott responded that even if most immigrants weren’t child rapists, as Simpson alleged, lenience toward undocumented immigrants would still be a betrayal of the founding fathers, because “we put blood on the line to get the liberty we have, so we can’t allow others not to do the same in their country or we bring those wars here.”

“Here’s the deal,” she said. “We have the freedoms and liberties we have in this country because we allowed our forefathers, our ancestors, they fought, they risked it all, they gave oftentimes the ultimate price to ensure the unalienable rights that we have endowed by our Creator. And the fact that this country was built upon that very premise, that we recognized a Providence, a Supreme Being, mentioned four times in our Declaration in one way or another, we honored the God who we felt gave us the protection to start this country and to bless this country. So we put blood on the line to get the liberty we have, so we can’t allow others not to do the same in their country or we bring those wars here.”

Michael Savage: Obama Gave Me The Flu!

On Tuesday, conservative radio host Michael Savage told his listeners that he recently got “wiped out” by the flu, an illness he promptly blamed on President Obama.

Last year, during a summer spike in undocumented immigrant youths coming to the U.S., Savage warned listeners that the largely Central American immigrants were spreading Enterovirus D-68 to the U.S., which he referred to as “the Honduran flu.”

Savage lamented that “my body really got wasted by the Honduran flu brought in by Obama’s children last summer on those trains.”

Of course, experts report that there is no connection between immigrants and the enterovirus, and the law that blocked immediate deportation of the Central American minors was signed into law by President Bush, not Obama.

Jindal: Obama Is 'Giving Up On America' By Facilitating Immigrant 'Invasion'

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal is up in arms about new Obama administration guidelines for exempting naturalized citizens who are conscientious objectors from the oath of citizenship’s promise to “bear arms” on behalf of the United States. The GOP presidential candidate told an Iowa radio program yesterday that the new exemption guidelines show that President Obama is “giving up on America” by allowing an “invasion” of unassimilated immigrants.

In 1950, Congress added the vow to “bear arms on behalf of the United States when required by law” to the oath taken by naturalized citizens after a court ruled that military service wasn’t implicitly required in the existing oath. However, new citizens taking the oath were allowed to refuse to say the line “on the basis of religious training and beliefs,” just as all citizens are allowed to opt out of military service if they are conscientious objectors.

In 2003, a Bush administration effort to modernize the oath would have removed the “bear arms” line altogether, but was rebuffed after facing conservative criticism that the line replacing it was too weak. The new Obama administration policy keeps the “bear arms” part of the oath, but updates the guidelines on who may be exempt from saying it for religious or moral reasons.

Jindal, who has tried to position himself as the Right’s foremost defender of religious freedom, reasonably reacted to this news yesterday by circulating a petition calling for the director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services to be fired, falsely claiming that the administration was “deleting the requirement” that naturalized immigrants vow to serve in the military, and declaring, “Immigration without assimilation is not immigration, it is invasion.”

Jindal repeated this criticism in an interview yesterday with Iowa conservative radio host Simon Conway, himself a naturalized U.S. citizen, saying, “Look, immigration without assimilation, that’s not immigration, that is an invasion.”

Jindal went on to say that by supporting this policy change, Obama has violated his own oath of office: “He takes an oath saying he’s going to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, this to me sounds like he’s giving up on America.”

Ted Cruz: I've Been Singing Donald Trump's Praises On Immigration

Ted Cruz has been more than happy to attack his Republican opponents for the presidency, save one: Donald Trump.

During an appearance on “The Jan Mickelson Show” last week, Cruz insisted that “the Democrats support illegal immigration,” which led him to praise Trump for his remarks describing immigrants as rapists.

“It’s one of the reasons why I’ve been so vocal in the past couple of weeks defending Donald Trump because you’ve had a whole slew of 2016 Republican candidates running out of their way to smack Donald Trump with a stick, and not only am I not going to do that but I’ve been singing his praises,” Cruz said, before adding: “He is absolutely right.”

Anti-Immigration Activist Who Threatened Violence Suddenly Denounces Threats Of Violence Over Immigration

A debate over immigration on the Fox News program "The Five" got pretty heated last night, with Geraldo Rivera at one point telling Eric Bolling that it is a good thing that they are friends or "I'd knock you out right now."

Radical right-wing anti-immigration activst William Gheen of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC quickly fired off an action alert demanding that "Geraldo Rivera be fired for threatening violence on air ":

Geraldo Rivera is a pro-amnesty and pro-illegal immigration Hispanic supremacist. He is also a projection racist who stays busy calling other people "racist" while hoping to distract from his own racism.

Now he has really gone too far by threatening another Fox News employee with violence due to his opinions against illegal immigration.

Please watch the video ... Then contact Fox News to demand Geraldo Rivera be fired for threatening violence on the air!

...

"Geraldo Rivera has made a direct threat of physical violence on live television seen by millions and that is behavior that no company or news agency should tolerate!" said William Gheen, President of ALIPAC. "If Geraldo can threaten violence without consequences from his employer or termination of employment, then Fox News Corporation is sending a message across America that threats of violence from illegal immigrant supporters like Geraldo are acceptable, and that could put the company in a legally actionable position should others follow Geraldo's style of violent outbursts."

We find it a little ironic that Gheen, of all people, would be decrying threats of violence over the issue of immigration considering that, back in 2011, he warned that President Obama was planning on using undocumented immigrants to wage war on "White America" and so the only response left was to engage in "illegal and violent" "extra-political activities":

We’re no longer referring to him as President Barack Obama, our national organization has made the decision and made the announcement we now refer to him as Dictator Barack Obama. That’s what he is. And basically at this point, if you’re looking for a peaceful, political recourse there really isn’t one that we can think of, and I’m really not sure what to tell people out there than I guess they need to make decisions soon to just accept whatever comes next or some type of extra-political activities that I can’t really talk about because they’re all illegal and violent.

Steve King: It's 'Mexicans Or Central Americans That Are Doing The Raping'

In an interview with The Hill newspaper today, Rep. Steve King defended Donald Trump’s comments calling Mexican immigrants “rapists” and drug dealers, echoing Trump in claiming that the risk of sexual assault for women crossing the southern border translates into Mexican and Central American men being rapists.

"So yes, they’re being raped, they’re being murdered they’re being brutalized,” he told The Hill, “and when I know I’ve been challenged on that, 'well you can’t conclude that (it's) Mexicans or Central Americans that are doing the raping,' well, can you conclude anything else? They are being raped, they are victims of rape, and the price for the transit sometimes is, often is and predominantly is their body.”

Interestingly, while Republican presidential candidates have been scrambling to distance themselves from Trump, they continue to cater to King.

Louie Gohmert: ISIS Right Across The Border

In an interview yesterday with WorldNetDaily’s Radio America, Rep. Louie Gohmert once again pushed a debunked report alleging that ISIS set up a camp on America’s southern border, pointing to a Tom Clancy novel to claim that ISIS may be collaborating with drug cartels.

The Texas congressman said that Republicans shouldn’t have a problem picking up Latino voters since they love God and family, which of course are two things that Democrats hate.

However, Gohmert said that Republicans shouldn’t “disregard the rule of law” through immigration reform because such a move “makes us like the countries in Central America or Mexico that they’re fleeing.” A pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants, Gohmert said, may jeopardize the future of the Republic.

Gohmert also took the opportunity to attack President Obama for not being American enough.

“It may just be because our president doesn’t know enough about our history, I’m sure they didn’t teach it in Indonesia, but the fact is when he says ‘nobody has done more to secure the border than I have,’ or words to that effect, is simply not true,” Gohmert said. The congressman pointed to Woodrow Wilson’s Mexican Expedition, which almost brought the two countries to the brink of war as U.S. troops entered Mexico, as proof that “the border was secure” under Wilson’s administration.

“This administration not only encourages people to violate the law, our immigration law, but it violates the laws regularly themselves,” purported lawbreaking which he said “leads to the tens of thousands of crimes that occur in the United States.”

Savage: Liberals To Use Immigrant Gangs And Internment Camps To Kill Christians And Veterans

Right-wing radio host Michael Savage joined other conservative pundits on Tuesday in blaming San Francisco’s “sanctuary city” policy for the murder of a woman by an undocumented immigrant, which he then used to warn of impending government violence against Christians and veterans.

He predicted that once President Obama incites a civil war by overloading the nation’s welfare system, liberals will employ “illegal alien gangs” as their “army.”

“It’s all well and good, the welfare state, until you can’t afford it anymore,” Savage said. “And guess what happens then? The country collapses. And guess what happens then? Exactly what the government wants, which is civil war and insurrection. And guess what happens then? There’s martial law and autocratic control. And guess what happens then? There are internment camps.”

He said that while the government will only “come for the returning war veterans” and “come for the Christians,” liberals will feel protected with the knowledge that they “have the army of the night behind you, and who is the army of the night? It’s the illegal alien gangs that you have behind you, it’s those who burned the city to the ground in Baltimore behind you, that’s who you have, those are your armies, you think we don’t know it? We understand your entire plan, we understand why you feel protected, we understand why you let a murder like this go unindicted, we understand all of this.”

Savage also railed against gays and lesbians, along with Democratic officials, linking them to murder.

“This is what liberalism brings you,” Savage said. “Insanity and murder and death and disease.”

Donald Trump Asks Extremist Joe Arpaio To Defend His Immigration Remarks

Donald Trump found an ally in Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio during his notorious birther crusade back in 2012, and now the Republican presidential candidate will be joining forces with Arpaio once again, this time to justify his infamous remarks that Mexican immigrants are mostly gangsters and rapists.

Trump plans to deliver a speech in Phoenix this week on “illegal immigration and numerous other topics.” Dan Nowicki of the Arizona Republic notes that Arpaio and a local GOP leader will both be making appearances at the event.

Surely teaming up with Arpaio will help Trump’s plan to win the Latino vote, as the sheriff has a horrific record on issues like immigration, racial profiling, detainmentand upholding basic human rights.

Most recently, he tapped a child sex offender to work as an armed guard for schools and confessed to having “violated several federal court orders resulting from a long-running racial-profiling suit.”

The sheriff, who has been cited by the Justice Department for violating the First Amendment rights of his critics, recently alleged that criticism of Trump’s comments on immigration undermines his “freedom of speech.”

Joe Arpaio: Criticizing Donald Trump Violates The First Amendment

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio defended his fellow anti-immigrant birther Donald Trump last week, saying that Trump didn’t mean “to say anything derogatory” about “all the great people from Mexico” when he said of Mexican immigrants, “They’re bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime, they’re rapists.”

Arpaio told radio host Aaron Klein, in an interview later excerpted in WorldNetDaily, that criticism of Trump and his loss of corporate allies after he made the comments were violations of his “freedom of speech.”

“Well, first of all, I thought we had freedom of speech in this country, and he’s running for president, he has a right to voice his opinion,” Arpaio said. “He did talk about the birth certificate in the past, I’ve been working on that. So, I don’t know, I guess you’ve got to be politically correct when you run for office. But once again, I don’t believe he meant to say anything derogatory about all the people, all the great people from Mexico.”

Steve King Blames Drugs For Charleston Shooting, Says Undocumented Immigrants Have Killed More People Than 9/11

Steve Malzberg invited Rep. Steve King onto his Newsmax program on Friday to discuss issues ranging from the church shooting in Charleston, which King blamed on prescription medication, to undocumented immigrants, whom he said have killed “multiples of the victims of the September 11 attacks,” to Caitlyn Jenner, whom he said illustrates “how far this society has gone from rational thought.”

The Iowa Republican also had some thoughts on Hillary Clinton’s slam of Donald Trump’s racist rhetoric in his presidential announcement. King said that Clinton unfairly made the “presumption that perhaps there will be some white people that might discriminate against some not-so-white people on the basis of being inspired by Trump’s speech.”

He also attempted to criticize the former secretary of state for inconsistency: “It’s Hillary that says ‘I’m not going to channel my husband,’ but she would channel Donald Trumps announcement speech instead to try to gain a political advantage out of that.”

Michael Savage: Use Immigrants To Build The Border Wall, Then Deported Them

Michael Savage is positively ecstatic about Donald Trump’s presidential bid, especially his line that he will “build a great, great wall on our southern border” and “will have Mexico pay for that wall,” an idea that Savage said he is “very honored to tell you that Mr. Donald Trump’s idea to build a wall with Mexico came directly from” his “Savage Manifesto.”

Savage, who has had Trump on his program, said yesterday that he would “use illegal aliens to build the wall” and then have them “repatriated” once the project is finished, all while having notorious Sheriff Joe Arpaio oversee the project.

Later in the program, Savage demanded that Mexico pay the U.S. “reparations” and called on Trump to do away with the Constitution’s birthright citizenship provision.

Pat Buchanan Agrees Immigration Will Turn America Into 'A Third World Hellhole'

Conservative pundit Pat Buchanan is out with a column, “Is Third World America Inevitable?,” today hailing Ann Coulter’s new book, “Adios, America!,” warning that immigration reform “will mean the end to America as the Western nation we have been, and the beginning of America’s life as what Ann calls, unapologetically, a ‘Third World hellhole.’”

Buchanan warns that ethnic diversity will fuel racial tensions, violence and terrorism, likening the purported dangers of immigration to Russian aggression in Eastern Europe and threats from North Korea.

He also laments that immigration will cripple the electoral prospects of the GOP, predicting that it will soon become “impossible” for a Republican presidential candidate to win a White House bid.

Thousands of U.S. troops safeguard the border of South Korea. U.S. warships patrol the South China Sea to stand witness to the territorial claims of Asian allies against China.

U.S. troops move in and out of the Baltic States to signal our willingness to defend the frontiers of these tiny NATO allies.

Yet nothing that happens on these borders imperils America so much as what is happening on our own bleeding border with Mexico.

Over three decades, that border has been a causeway into the USA for millions of illegal immigrants who are changing the face of America – to the delight of those who think the country we grew up in was ugly.

All sides of this quarrel have been using the figure of 11 million people here illegally. In her new best-seller “Adios, America!” Ann Coulter makes a compelling case that the real figure is close to 30 million.

If that is true, and if the next president embraces amnesty and a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants, that will mean the end to America as the Western nation we have been, and the beginning of America’s life as what Ann calls, unapologetically, a “Third World hellhole.”



Politically, immigrants from Third World countries, as they rely upon government for food, housing assistance, health care and the education of their children, support the Party of Government.

Mitt Romney lost the two fastest-growing major minorities, Hispanics and Asians, who now account for more than a fifth of our population and a seventh of our voters, by 40 points. And as their numbers and voting percentages rise, the GOP will find that reaching 270 electoral votes is not only more difficult than in Reagan’s day, it has become impossible.

Among the myths or lies drummed into the heads of Americans is that we have always been a “nation of immigrants,” and “diversity,” i.e., racial, ethnic and religious diversity, “is a strength.”



Has the addition of tens of millions of Asian and African Muslims strengthened the Old Continent that ruled the world? Or do they imperil its security and survival as the cradle and heartland of the West?

As racial, ethic [sic] and religious hatreds pull people apart and create terrorists all over our disintegrating world, why would we make ourselves ever more diverse?

Ann Coulter: Americans May 'Flee' To Canada To Avoid Latino Immigrants

Ann Coulter, author of “Adios, America!” and Gavin McInnes, host of “Free Speech” radio, advocated for strengthening the Canadian border as Americans might need to flee the country in the future due to immigration. McInnes joked that those fleeing America will be “the new draft dodgers.”

Providing listeners with her own version of history, Coulter warned that “crazy diversity” is taking over America due to our immigration policies, recommending that the government implement “a total moratorium” and eventually let in immigrants from countries like the Netherlands and the United Kingdom: “Shut down all of the pro-immigration, anti-American groups. Shut down the entire immigration bureaucracy. We’ll get our files in order, we’ll assimilate the ones already here, and then we’ll start it up again and get more Brits and Dutch.”

McInnes, a Canadian immigrant, responded, “When you say we’ll assimilate, the ones that you mean are the Canadian immigrant who came here in ’99. You wouldn’t want him to have to go back, right? If he brought a lot of jobs and he’s a safe guy.”

“Yeah, I think we’ll keep him,” reassured Coulter. “It’s crazy how hard it is for Canadians to immigrate!” She continued that “a lot of comedy writers and comedians are Canadians. I can’t believe what they have to go through!”

At first McInnes reasoned, “Why is there a border there? Let’s just knock that down.” However, he was easily persuaded by Coulter’s logic that “we’re gonna want to keep it there, because if this book doesn’t work, that’s where we’re all going to have to flee to.” Based on Ann’s calculations, “it’ll take Latin America another century to make it up to that border. So we want to keep that border very strong.”

At least “they don’t like the cold,” concluded McInnes.

Ann Coulter Credits White Nationalist Writer For Her Anti-Immigrant Politics

Ann Coulter has been making the rounds of conservative media over the past couple of weeks promoting her new book, “Adios America! The Left’s Plan To Turn Our Country Into A Third World Hellhole,” which is about as subtle an anti-immigrant polemic as it sounds.

As the Southern Poverty Law Center pointed out when Coulter’s book came out, Coulter remains a reliable presence in right-wing media and politics, despite the fact that her comments on race in America are pretty much indistinguishable from those of the white nationalist leaders who have largely been ostracized from the conservative mainstream. 

This is not just a coincidence. In fact, Coulter revealed this weekend in an interview with Chronicles, a magazine published by the conservative Rockford Institute, that she was inspired to become involved in the anti-immigrant movement after reading a 1992 National Review article by Peter Brimelow, who is now the editor of the white nationalist website VDARE.

Although Brimelow’s ideas continue to fuel anti-immigrant politics, his explicit promotion of white nationalist concepts has put him in an uneasy place in the conservative movement. In 2012, he was given a slot on a Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) panel on “the failure of multiculturalism” alongside Rep. Steve King. But the next year, he reported that the conservative conspiracy theory clearinghouse WorldNetDaily had rejected one of his columns as “too extreme.” Earlier this year, Brimelow spoke at the white nationalist American Renaissance conference, where he recommended the new slogan “whites have rights.”

In the article that inspired Coulter, Brimelow (himself an immigrant from England) lamented high levels of non-white immigration, writing, “Just as when you leave Park Avenue and descend into the subway, on entering the INS waiting rooms you find yourself in an underworld that is almost entirely colored.” He went on to warn National Review readers of the impending non-white majority in the United States:

Above all, the American ethnic mix has been upset. In 1960, the U.S. population was 88.6 per cent white; in 1990, it was only 75.6 per cent white—a drop of 13 percentage points in thirty years. (Indeed, the proportion of “European-Americans” is probably a couple of percentage points lower than that, because the Census Bureau counts all Middle Easterners as “white.”) The demographer Leon Bouvier has projected that by 2020—that is, easily within the lifetimes of many NATIONAL REVIEW readers—the proportion of whites could fall as low as 61 per cent. Among children under 15, minorities could be approaching the point of becoming the majority.

Coulter told Chronicles’ Tom Patiak that she has continued to discuss her work on immigration with Brimelow, who followed his National Review article with the bestselling anti-immigrant book “Alien Nation”:

TP: How did you first become interested in immigration?

A: Peter Brimelow’s front page article in National Review. [But] then I never wrote about it. I was practicing law then, and you know you live in a bubble in college and law school. I suppose I believed all the Jack Kemp nonsense. I read that cover story in National Review and realized I’d been had. I’ve been lied to. Oh my gosh! It was the only time I remember completely changing my mind about something. Of course there wasn’t that much to change because immigration wasn’t something I had ever thought about. I was like a lot of Americans to this day, you just go along: We’re a nation of immigrants, immigration is a wonderful thing, aren’t they hard workers, blah, blah, blah. And since I became a writer, Peter has been haranguing me, demanding to know why I haven’t written about immigration. I kept telling him, because you said it all. I’ve nothing new to say. So I am pleased that with this book—you have to get to chapter 7 and you start hitting things that, I think, surprised even Peter. He wanted me to start the book at chapter 7: Just skip everything before, everybody knows that first stuff, Ann. But I had to stay: If only everybody did know that stuff.

Earlier in the interview, when Patiak asked her to list her “intellectual influences” on immigration, she responded, “Well, obviously Peter Brimelow, who is the one who started it all, God bless him.”

Brimelow’s VDARE has excitedly promoted Coulter’s Chronicles interview, perhaps because its writers don’t always get credit when their ideas get absorbed into the conservative mainstream. For instance, VDARE has been seeking credit from the GOP for the increasing popularity of an idea put forward by its contributor Steve Sailer, who was the first to outline in detail a supposed path to victory for Republicans that relies solely on white voters. Ann Coulter, incidentally, has credited Sailer for the “Sailer strategy” and continues to heartily endorse it. Last year, Coulter cited Sailer's work in a speech from the mainstage at CPAC.

Anti-Immigrant Activist Warns Muslim Refugees Are Part Of Liberal Plot

Anti-Muslim activist Frank Gaffney invited Mark Krikorian of the Center for Immigration Studies, a group that advocates for increased restrictions on immigration, on to his “Secure Freedom Radio” program yesterday, where predictably the two got to talking about efforts to settle some refugees from Muslim countries such as Iraq and Syria, which have both experienced refugee crises, in the United States.

Gaffney told Krikorian that conservative writer James Simpson has written a new e-book for Gaffney’s Center for Security Policy about “what he calls the ‘red-green’ axis and the impact that it is having, sort of the hard-left and the Islamists, in erasing America.”

“Does this sound right to you that there is this kind of dynamic at work between the hard-left and the Islamists?” he asked.

Krikorian agreed, bringing up a column written by a speechwriter for former British Prime Minister Tony Blair who said that Labour leaders hoped expanded immigration would “rub the Right's nose in diversity and render their arguments out of date.” (The writer, in response to right-wing glee, later clarified that this wasn’t a “plot” to impose multiculturalism on an unwilling Britain.)

“I think the dynamic here is the kind of thing we heard about in the Blair government in England,” Krikorian said, “when one of his people, one of his advisors, basically said, look, we pushed immigration as a way to unwillingly force diversity on the British people, to change the nation. And I think a lot of these refugee activists types and immigration activists see immigration in the same way and see Islamic immigration as the most different and non-American way of promoting immigration and therefore serving their purposes the most, even more than, say, the immigration of people from, say, Latin America or Christians from the Middle East, that sort of thing.”

Ann Coulter: 'Get Used To Your Little Girls Being Raped' Due To Immigration

On Friday, Ann Coulter stopped by “The Eric Metaxas Show” to promote her new anti-immigrant book, “Adios, America! The Left's Plan to Turn Our Country into a Third World Hellhole.” Coulter blamed Mitt Romney’s 2012 election defeat on immigration, lamenting that there aren’t enough white voters in the U.S. and urging the former governor to make a third presidential bid to save America.

If the country doesn’t crack down on immigration, Coulter warned, the U.S. is going to transform into Uganda and will face gender segregation and mass sexual violence against women and children.

“Reagan got, I think it was 54 percent of the white vote, Romney got 59 percent of the white vote; the country in 1980 was about 90 percent white, now it’s about 62 percent white though still only 72 who can vote,” Coulter said. “If something drastic isn’t done right away, it is going to be George McGovern’s America, it is going to be La Raza’s America, it is going to be Uganda, basically. And get used to having segregated buses and subways, as they have in India and Mexico, because of the way women are treated and sexually abused there; get used to your little girls being raped and being pregnant; get used to not being able to go to your national parks because they are being burnt down, pot farms are being grown there, pesticides dumped all over.”

Coulter insisted that she was not using hyperbole, predicting that “if this book doesn’t work and change our immigration policy, that’s it, time to build the bunker and hire the cheap maids.”

Ann Coulter Suggests Denying Citizenship To Blind People & People In Wheelchairs

Ann Coulter, who is on a media tour promoting her new anti-immigrant book “Adios America,” called in to Simon Conway’s talk radio show in Iowa yesterday, where the two got to discussing citizenship requirements and naturalization ceremonies.

Coulter told Conway that she was appalled that there is an exception to the English-language requirement for naturalized citizens for certain older people who have been legal residents for decades, who she implied don’t “love this country.” She also took exception to accommodations for citizenship applicants with disabilities.

“The INS has waived the English-language requirements for many immigrants, and it’s not just — that obviously goes to the heart of it, are you switching allegiance, do you love this country? — but beyond that, how about the wheelchair-only section? How about the section for the blind? Look, wish these people well, but we’re not running an international charity here,” she said.

Savage: Obama 'Injecting' Immigrants 'Like A Virus' Into 'All-White Communities'

On Tuesday, right-wing talk show host Michael Savage criticized President Obama as a “con man shyster” who has the “nerve to make believe that he has suffered from white privilege, he has suffered from the things of slavery.”

Savage continued, saying that Obama is attempting to destroy America by “injecting, like a virus, Muslims from Syria into all-white communities in America” and taking “infected children from Honduras and put[ing] them in every school district that he could.”

The radio host continued that Obama wants to bring about “Section 8 housing on a national level,” hoping to “inject low-income troublemakers” into “an all-white suburban community” and “then you let the games begin.”

Ann Coulter: Birthright Citizenship The 'Invention Of One Mentally Delusional Supreme Court Justice'

One of Ann Coulter’s new favorite talking points, which she uses in her new anti-immigrant book “Adios America!” and has repeated in various media interviews, is that the U.S. has “taken in one-fourth of Mexico's entire population."

Earlier this week, Politifact gave that claim a “Pants on Fire” rating , noting that Coulter is comparing the number of people of Mexican heritage living in the U.S. — including people who’s families have been in the country for generations — with the current population of Mexico, which is kind of like saying that the large population of Irish Americans means that the U.S. has “taken in” Ireland’s population seven times.

But this, of course, is all part of the media’s persecution of Ann Coulter, at least according to her friend Joyce Kaufman, a conservative radio host in Florida, who cited the Politifact story in an interview with Coulter yesterday as an example of the media “going crazy trying to debunk facts.” The Mexican-American citizens Politifact mentions, Kaufman said, are “anchor babies” and therefore “should not count” as being Americans.

Coulter agreed, saying that granting birthright citizenship to the children of undocumented immigrants — something consistent with the history of the 14th Amendment — was an “invention” of the “mentally delusional” Supreme Court Justice William Brennan in the 1980s.

“This doesn’t go back to the 14th Amendment,” she said, “this is the invention of one mentally delusional Supreme Court justice. And he’s turned the most precious possession in the universe, citizenship in this wonderful country, into a game of tag with the border control. If they don’t catch you, you get to drop the baby and say, ‘Ha ha ha, I just had the baby and you can’t do anything!’ It’s madness.”

If you are a presidential candidate, you spend a lot of time talking to people in Iowa. And if you’re a Republican, that means a lot of time on Iowa conservative radio, including popular programs hosted by right-wing activists Steve Deace and Jan Mickelson. The fact that Deace and Mickelson have long histories of extreme rhetoric has not dissuaded Republican candidates from joining their shows.
