After spending more than five hours live blogging both GOP debates, I caught Ann Coulter’s tweet, “How many f—ing Jews do these people think there are in the United States?”
I couldn’t quite believe what I saw. I had to check to make sure I was reading what I thought I had just read. At that moment, I retweeted her tweet with the comment, “Are you going Pat Buchanan on us?”
It would seem so. Some of her other tweets included, “Good grief! Huckabee is running for PM of Israel,” “Cruz, Huckabee Rubio all mentioned ISRAEL in their response to: “What will AMERICA look like after you are president,” and “Christie also talks @ Israel in response to the question: What will AMERICA look like after you are president?”
All of that seems quite Buchananesque. Remember when William F. Buckley devoted nearly an entire issue of National Review to Buchanan’s anti-Semitism? It would later become a book titled In Search of Anti-Semitism. Well, I don’t think even Buchanan would have said or written the phrase “f—ing Jews.”
If Ann Coulter wasn’t so busy sucking up to Donald Trump perhaps it wouldn’t have escaped her notice the Iran nuclear deal has been all but ratified and the Obama Administration treats Israel as if it were an enemy. Why shouldn’t Republican presidential candidates stand up for Israel? Given that nearly the rest of the world has ostracized Israel one must wonder if Coulter believes we should do the same? If that is the case then perhaps she should go to work for the Obama Administration.
On a personal note, someone once referred to me as “a f—ing Jew.” It was in April 1992, during my first year at Carleton University in Ottawa, when I attended a speech given by Preston Manning who at the time was leader of the now defunct Reform Party. While Manning himself isn’t anti-Semitic, his party did attract a number of racists and anti-Semites during its early days. One of those supporters confronted me following his speech and angrily said, “You must be one of those f—ing Jews.”
Well, the Reform Party eventually merged with the Progressive Conservatives to become the Conservative Party and has governed Canada under Stephen Harper since 2006. By the way, Harper is probably the most pro-Israel leader in the Western world. Unlike Obama, Harper actually broke off diplomatic relations with Iran. For that among many other reasons I hope the Canadian electorate will re-elect the Conservative for another four years next month.
Needless to say, it has been a long time since I gave that incident much thought. That is until last night.
It would seem that Ann Coulter is suddenly concerned about the number of Jews in America. So be it. If that is the case then I believe that she should be considered an embarrassment to conservatives and that we ought to shun her.
