"Shame on you."
Conservative commentator Ann Coulter faced a flood of criticism following the Republican debate Wednesday night after she posted a tweet that referred to “f---ing Jews.”
How many f---ing Jews do these people think there are in the United States?— Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) September 17, 2015
Actor and filmmaker Seth Rogen, himself of the Jewish faith, swiped back at Coulter, without censoring the F-word:
.@AnnCoulter you're a horrible fucking idiot.— Seth Rogen (@Sethrogen) September 17, 2015
The editor of the conservative Jewish magazine Commentary wrote:
Holy shit, Ann. Shame on you. https://t.co/w1d8k8ePND— John Podhoretz (@jpodhoretz) September 17, 2015
Coulter later explained that what she posted had to be taken in context of this preceding tweet:
Cruz, Huckabee Rubio all mentioned ISRAEL in their response to: "What will AMERICA look like after you are president."— Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) September 17, 2015
After asking how many “f---ing Jews” there are in the U.S., she posited perhaps the candidates' intended audience was pro-Israel evangelicals:
Maybe it's to suck up to the Evangelicals.— Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) September 17, 2015
The point she appeared to be trying to make was that the GOP candidates were repeatedly "pandering" on the same issues on which most agree anyway:
How to get applause from GOP donors: 1) Pledge to start a war 2) Talk about job creators 3) Denounce abortion 4) Cite Reagan 5) Cite Israel.— Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) September 17, 2015
All GOPs = prolife, pro-Reagan, pro-Israel. Pandering on all 3 tonight was EPIC. https://t.co/lZ0ZUtVdSf— Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter)September 17, 2015
There aren't even that many Evangelicals to pander to (probably the intended Israel pander-recipients). https://t.co/lZ0ZUtVdSf— Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) September 17, 2015
In response to criticism of her comment, Coulter suggested that immigration policy should have been the focus:
And half the GOPS would bring the Jihadists here as "refugees." Could they have talked about that tonight? https://t.co/jmjtEmcjbW— Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) September 17, 2015
I like the Jews, I like fetuses, I like Reagan. Didn't need to hear applause lines about them all night. https://t.co/4guFehK0CM— Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) September 17, 2015
Christians United for Israel issued a statement criticizing Coulter.
“Ann Coulter’s tweets this evening concerning Israel were completely inappropriate,” CUFI wrote. “The U.S.-Israel relationship is both a moral and strategic imperative. There are tens of millions of Christians in this country who stand with the Jewish state. Perhaps Ms. Coulter has forgotten that Israel is America’s stalwart front-line ally in the war against radical Islam and that the Jewish state upholds the very values Americans hold dear.”
