She is also a nationally syndicated columnist with the Universal Press Syndicate, through which she publishes a weekly column. With a background in law, Coulter has made appearances on various networks such as MSNBC and CNN, both as a legal correspondent and political commentator. She is also the author of several books, many of which were New York Times best sellers, among them: In Trump We Trust: E Pluribus Awesome! and Guilty: Liberal Victims and Their Assault on America.

Additionally, Coulter is a purveyor of Islamophobic comments, which focus mainly on fear-mongering and baseless comments about Arabs and Muslims.

RECENT ACTIVITY

Ann Coulter remains a prominent figure within the conservative media-sphere, and continues to write her column, which can be accessed either on her website, or a variety of conservative media sources. Her most recent publication is Resistance is Futile!: How the Trump-hating Left Lost Its Collective Mind. She also maintains an active Twitter account. Coulter has not been silent in wake of recent news, and has been highly critical of President Donald Trump, despite being one of his staunchest supporters during the 2016 presidential campaign. After Trump’s declaration of a national emergency concerning the United States’ southern border, Coulter stated that the, “only national emergency is that our president is an idiot.”

Islamophobia

Coulter titled one of her columns, “Old Mohammed Had a Farm, Jihad, Jihad … Oh!”

Coulter sees Muslims, and immigrants more generally, as “aggressors in hiding” who pose a threat to “Western” society.

“There are nearly 2 billion Muslims in the world, amounting to a quarter of the world’s population, controlling 50 countries. The English-speaking world is about a fifth that size and constitutes a dwindling majority in about a half-dozen countries. But, somehow, no matter how the story is written, Muslims always get to play the victim, and Anglo-Saxons are cast as the aggressors.”

“What is the affirmative case for this? How is it making America better? Improving the schools? The job market? Crime? The likelihood of terrorism?

Can the liberals doing cartwheels over a district judge’s announcement that everyone in the world has a right to come here (except Europeans and Christians), give us the cost-benefit analysis they’re using? Twenty million Third World immigrants give us (___) [sic] terrorists, (___) [sic] welfare recipients, (__) [sic] uncompensated medical costs, (___) [sic] discrimination lawsuits, but it’s all worth it because (___________________) [sic]?”

“Before breathing a sigh of relief that, unlike Western Europe, we don’t have Muslim rapists pouring into our country, recall that we have Mexican rapists pouring into our country. Almost all peasant cultures are brimming with rapists, pederasts and child abusers. Latin America just happens to be the peasant culture closest to the United States, while the Muslims are closest to Europe.”

“The main takeaway from all these stories is: We sure have taken in a lot of Muslims! They seem to have trouble assimilating to American laws about not committing mass murder, but the good news is, when it comes to America’s culture of victimhood, they assimilate like fish to water!

This isn’t mass psychogenic illness, like when cheerleaders at the same high school all develop tics. It’s not even the Salem witch trials. At least the Salem witch-hunters believed in witches. The Muslim hoaxers are lying, and they know they’re lying.

Otherwise, they’d leave the country.

If Muslims want to convince me that they’re living in abject fear in Trump’s America, instead of rushing to the media, somebody’s got to leave.

I’ve heard endless stories about the reign of terror against Muslims, but have yet to hear of one single Muslim – much less a wave of Muslims – moving out of the United States.

It’s not as if they get depressed at the thought of abandoning the old ancestral home, where their great-grandparents are buried. They just got here!

If any Muslim were at risk of so much as a dyspeptic look from white Americans, there’s emigration as well as immigration.”

“As with the British media, the American media keep telling us that all these Muslim terrorist attacks have nothing to do with Muslims, and Donald Trump’s suggestion that we impose a temporary moratorium on Muslim immigration is madness, bigoted, racist.

Thank God Hitler didn’t claim ‘Mein Kampf’ was a holy book and the Fuhrerbunker a mosque.”

“Obama is a hapless fool, but what is so special about the words ‘radical Islam’? Maybe it’s not radical Islam. Maybe it’s just ‘Islam’.

The reason Republicans obsess over Obama’s language is that they can’t go on TV and say nothing, and no one but Trump will say anything useful. To wit: Let’s stop dumping a million Muslim immigrants on the country every year, some percentage of whom we know will commit mass murder.”

SOURCE: Coulter, Ann (“This Hidden Fact Predicts Terrorism”, World Net Daily)(June 6, 2016)

“In addition to the sudden appearance of honor killings, clitorectomies, hijabs and massive government frauds, Muslim immigrants have given us: The most devastating terrorist attack in world history, followed by terrorist attacks at Fort Hood, the Boston Marathon, a military recruiting center in Chattanooga, Times Square, Vaughan Foods in Oklahoma, San Bernardino and an Orlando nightclub, among other places.

We’ve admitted 2 million Muslims just since 9/11 – that’s more than had been admitted before 9/11. If we don’t make it 3 million, we’re monsters? May we ask how many Muslims Khan’s mystery Constitution requires – or is that out of bounds unless we had a child who died in Iraq?

Apparently, sending out a victim to make their argument was the only option left for the ‘Make America Muslim!’ crowd.”

SOURCE: Coulter, Ann (“The Wrath of Khan”, WorldNetDaily)(August 8, 2016)

“In the 14 years since Muslims killed 3,000 Americans on 9/11, this country has admitted another 1.5 million Muslims. So we’re xenophobic, bigoted racists if we don’t make it 2 million? Three million? When will we have enough? How many murdered Americans is an acceptable number before we can shut off the spigot of Muslim immigration?

The amazing thing is that no one (except the American people) wants any pause in Muslim immigration – even after more than a dozen Muslim terrorist attacks on our soil in the last 15 years.”

“I have difficulty ginning up much interest in this story inasmuch as I think the government should be spying on all Arabs, engaging in torture as a televised spectator sport, dropping daisy cutters wantonly throughout the Middle East and sending liberals to Guantanamo.”

Coulter has advocated profiling for terrorism.

“If a martian landed he would say the one advantage you guys have is they all look alike, they’re all foreign born, they’re all male, they’re all between a certain age group, um, they’re all Muslim.”

Coulter utilizes offensive, racist, and stereotypical language when describing Muslims.

“Angry Muslims have been popping up all over TV to denounce Trump and complain about anti-Muslim bigotry in the U.S. If they’d prefer a country with a larger Muslim population and no white devil oppressors, low-rent mud huts are available in any of about 50 Muslim countries around the world. First month free; after that, two goats a month.”

“[Egypt is] a dead-end society, the same sort of society Obama wants to create here.”

“If you don't want to get shot by the police, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, then don't point a toy gun at them. Or, as I believe our motto should be after 9/11: Jihad monkey talks tough; jihad monkey takes the consequences. Sorry, I realize that's offensive. How about ‘camel jockey’ What? Now what'd I say? Boy, you tent merchants sure are touchy. Grow up, would you?”

“Or is NATO -- like the conventions of civilized behavior, personal hygiene and grooming -- inapplicable when Muslims are involved?”

“But apparently the Quran is like the Constitution: It’s a ‘living document,’ capable of sprouting all-new provisions at will. Muslims ought to start claiming the Quran also prohibits indoor plumbing, to explain their lack of it.”

“If we’re not careful, multitudes of Muslims will be going to fight Americans in Afghanistan just so they can go to Guantanamo and get proper treatment for attention deficit disorder and erectile dysfunction.”
