Ann Coulter, the far-right pundit and author of the new anti-immigration book “Adios, America!,” recently voiced her disdain for both immigrants and female voters on the radio show “Free Speech” with Gavin McInnes. While McInnes is himself an immigrant from Canada, he apparently had no problem bashing immigration from America’s Southern neighbors.
Coulter explained that Ted Kennedy’s ’65 immigration act was “specifically designed to change the demographics of this country. When it went through, as with Obamacare, surrounded with lies, a miasma of lies: ‘this will not change the demographic of America; we’ll get basically the same people we’ve always gotten.’” But, instead, Coulter asserted, this act “was specifically designed to bring in peasant cultures who would remain poor for generations, remain on government support, so that you would have a solid block of Democratic voters, and it worked.”
According to Coulter, “Obama never would have been elected, I mean certainly wouldn’t have been reelected – Romney won bigger against, I mean, if the demographics of this country had not changed so dramatically because of immigration, Romney would have won a bigger landslide than Reagan did against Carter in 1980.”
McInnes, also brought up women voters, prompting Coulter to share her position that “women should not have the right to vote.” She continued that while women should not vote, “We can still write books! We can run for office.”
“You just can’t vote,” McInnes reiterated.
This is not the first time Coulter voiced her support for female disenfranchisement. In 2007, Coulter said that “If we took away women’s right to vote, we’d never have to worry about another Democrat [sic] president.” Coulter described this as a “pipe dream” and a “personal fantasy” of hers that women, especially the single women who “are voting so stupidly,” will finally be silenced.
Later in his conversation with Coulter, McInnes purposed another novel idea: “How about if you don’t pay tax, you can’t vote?”
“That was what my father always said,” responded Coulter. “Well, technically what he said was you can vote if you weren’t getting back stuff from the government. If you’re breaking even, okay. But not if you’re getting more from the government than you are paying in, well than you’re just voting for more stuff for yourself.”
