In a column written hours after the mass-killing in San Bernardino recently, Ann Coulter complained that the only reason people believe that white men commit the majority of such attacks is because the media’s convinced them that they do. “After 20 years of nearly non-stop mass murder by non-white immigrants in a country that is still majority white,” she wrote, “our media have the audacity to claim that tens of thousands of Syrian Muslims are less dangerous than the most pacific human beings in world history: 21st-century white American men.”
As evidence, Coulter rattled off a list of non-white immigrants who have committed mass-shootings, like the “mixed-race immigrant, Elliot Rodger, [who] committed mass murder at a sunny college campus in Santa Barbara.” Rodger’s mother is Malaysian, but to call Rodgers an “immigrant” when he moved with his family from London to the United States when he was five years old seems something of a stretch. Even by Coulter’s own logic, Rodgers’ parents would qualify as “the right kind of immigrant” – wealthy, well-educated, and from a First World country.
Coulter also claimed that the only reason why some of the most powerful media houses across the United States are referring to white men as mass-murderers and “are putting forward only the crimes that were committed by white Americans” is because of President Obama, who is “a racist who aims to make white people in America a minority in their own country.”
“It’s what he’s been doing ever since he became president in 2008,” she said. “He has been systematically allowing every other race and religion in the United States to trump over Christianity and white people every chance he got, and the result of all that today is that gay marriages are legal nation-wide and that we have thousands of Syrian Muslims on their way to America, in pursuit of the American dream. And I don’t have to tell you what that means for white Christian Americans.”
Coulter also added: “It is more than obvious that our president is a racist who’s only intention during presidency is to weaken the traditional American family, to destroy everything that has made America a world power. He knows that we draw our strength from our liberty, from our ability to be free in our own right. And he wants to crush that freedom and enslave white people. He wishes he was white, but since that’s not the case, he wants all of us destroyed. And since he has already struck at the very fabric of our core, which is our faith, he is now turning to the other all-important postulate of every patriotic American – our guns. He is making slaves out of all of us and we’re being made fools for not seeing it.”
