Far-right pundit Ann Coulter joined Eric Metaxas on his radio show last Friday to discuss her new anti-immigrant book, “Adios, America! The Left’s Plan to Turn Our Country into a Third World Hellhole.”
Metaxas tied anti-immigrant politics to the idea of American exceptionalism, saying that that “in order for America to fulfill its mission to the world, we’re supposed to bless the world. This country has been a blessing to all the countries that are not America, from practically day one.”
“We won’t be anymore,” retorted Coulter.
“That’s the point,” continued Metaxas. “Because if you care about people who are not in America…then you must let America be America” instead of “undermining America’s ability to be America.”
Super-patriot Coulter agreed and added: “It won’t be America, it’ll be Mexico. And will Mexico go rushing in when there’s an earthquake in Haiti? Will they be sending out more foreign aid than any other nation? No they won’t.”
Metaxas reasoned that Americans, especially Christians, are “supposed to love everybody. But loving people doesn’t mean telling them what they’re doing is okay. In fact, usually loving somebody will involve saying something that the person maybe doesn’t wanna hear.”
“It’s also not loving people to be dumping these misogynistic alien cultures on the country that are going to end up, um, raping young American girls,” Coulter responded. “Is that loving the young American girls?” Especially when it is being done “without warning, and, and without our consent.”
