Ann Coulter on Illegal Immigration and Demographics: ‘No, You’re Raping Me.’

Posted on | March 8, 2014 | 16 Comments

Phyllis Schlafly and Ann Coulter at Saturday’s immigration panel.

Vivid analogies are not evidence of hate and, while I’m sure this is going to become another one of those “CPAC controversy” headlines, the point Ann Coulter was making is entirely valid:

“My favorite network for humor is MSNBC. They’re always sneering, demographics are changing. No this isn’t a natural process,” Coulter said. “It’s like you’re being raped and the guy is telling you ‘my penis is in you.’ No, you’re raping me. Demographics are changing by force. There is nothing natural about it.”

That’s the quote according to the Blaze, and my memory of what Coulter said at today’s Eagle Forum immigration panel is slightly different, but there were dozens of bloggers at the event, so we’ll see video eventually and be able to check it word-for-word.

The springboard of this discussion was the Eagle Forum’s recent report on the political and economic impact of immigration. And the point that Coulter was making is that when people in the media say that “demographics are changing,” they convey the impression that this is an inexorable, organic process. It’s not.

Our nation’s demographics are being changed as a result of deliberate government policy, and anyone who tells you otherwise — whether it’s the clowns on MSNBC or the clowns running the Republican Party — is lying. If people knew the truth about our current immigration policy, they would be very angry about it, but there are people deeply invested in keeping people uninformed and misinformed, so that indeed, we are like rape victims who are being told by the perpetrator that we aren’t actually being raped.

God bless Ann Coulter for speaking the truth — and for putting it in strong language that makes people pay attention.

    Who would have thought Noam Chomsky would be right…and it would be Ann Coulter to show it?

    Schafly, Coulter… Both of whom I would consider to be good feminists were it not for a few on the lunatic fringes of academia who have irreparably tarnished the brand!

    We’re getting awfully close to the “speech at the end of Idiocracy” territory. I won’t be shocked to hear the word “anus” in a political commercial by 2016.

    Well, “current policy” is the result of previous errant “reforms,” the Ted Kennedy plan from the ’60s that gave us “family chain” immigration and effectively repealed national limits, opening us up to more non-European immigration, and the Reagan reform of the ’80s which granted amnesty with the promise of enforcement that never came.

    Sound immigration policy would concentrate on potential entrants with needed skills and sufficient wealth to support themselves on arrival. Unskilled and lower-skilled workers, where needed, could be dealt with as “guest workers” with citizenship and benefits off the table. And we should reinstitute the old policy that immigrants could not receive ANY public welfare services for five years after arrival.

    The biggest part of enforcement isn’t “border security” either, by a long shot. Most illegals get here legally first, through tourist, work, or student visas which they overstay. Visa tracking must be a key component of any workable enforcement plan. Also, e-Verify for all employment solves the problems of the old “I-9” forms and is already proven to work. It stops the use of phony SSNs or ID#s cold.

    Real reform is needed, but it bears no resemblance at all to anything Obama or the Democrats want.

    Absolutely right.

    They are products of the traditional form of feminism, rather than that we see today in Wymyn’s Nonstudies departments.

    Ann Coulter sees the whole of life through the lens of race
    and class and thus injects race into many scenarios.Coulter is fearful of, in her words, “the browning of America.” See Vanity: Ann Coulter’s Quest for Glory for more details, available

    Larger problem: which government agency is responsible for policing legal and illegal immigrants? There is State (several bureaus), DOJ (several bureaus), DoD, DHS (several bureaus: CBP, ICE, ICSIS, USCG, + ), USDA, DOI, HHS (several bureaus), and then we get to the agencies from the states.
    Larger Problem: The diffusion of power protects actual Americans, and we are actively resisting NSA-like data mining and exploitation. Can we find all the illegals and separate them from Americans and legal immigrants and visitors? Sure, but at what cost to our privacy?
    Solution: Regime change in Mexico.

    The solution is regime change in Mexico?!? Don’t make me laugh.

    We can’t make serious changes in our own country, so how do you propose to do it in Mexico? Besides, there is no reason to think that a regime change in Mexico would be a change for the better.

    Of course, we COULD very effectively twist some arms to get Mexico to stop actively promoting the illegal invasion. But no American politician of either party has ever lambasted Mexico for this.

    That is because the invasion is indeed, as Coulter says, a deliberate policy of the US government. Until THAT changes, there’s no sense blaming Mexico.

    Has Mrs. Schlafly ever labeled herself a ‘Feminist’?

    I would hope not.
