Ann Coulter, never one to keep offensive remarks to herself, lashes out over a radio discussion on immigration, by remarking ‘Oh God, not the Jews again.’ This is not the first time she has made abrasive remarks towards the Jewish community. The Forward’s Josefin Dolsten reports:
“Oh God, not the Jews again,” muttered conservative commentator Ann Coulter when asked about Jewish immigration to the United States.
She was responding to a question on Wednesday by BBC’s James Naughtie on whether her anti-immigration stance would also have applied to Jewish immigrants to New York in the 20th century.
Coulter went on to say that Jews did not “overwhelm” the country in the same way immigrants today do.
“That’s like 2 percent of the population — that did not overwhelm our culture,” she said. “We’re being overwhelmed. You’ve been out here in California, you go to neighborhoods and people aren’t speaking English.”
Hundreds of thousands of Yiddish-speaking Jewish immigrants flocked to the lower East Side and other urban neighborhoods in a wave of immigration more than a century ago.
