If the left is trying to shut up Ann Coulter, their tactics are not working.
After much ginned up controversy over refusing to hug rotund illegal immigrant Gaby Pacheco during the Q & A session of an interview with Fusion’s Jorge Ramos, Coulter doubled down on the “outrage” with a disparaging remark about “overweight girls.”
The best selling conservative author was asked about the non-hug in an email exchange with Breitbart News.
“When I’m in charge of immigration (after our 10 year moratorium), I will not admit overweight girls,” she wrote.
If the rejected hug upset liberals, this latest comment is going to send them into the stratosphere.
The question posed by Pacheco got lost in all the focus on the hug. During a radio interview with Sean Hannity, Coulter brought it up, saying the illegal immigrant wants to restrict free speech in America based on what she likes to hear and doesn’t like to hear.
“She proceeded to inform that there are two kinds of speech, one is ‘free speech’ and one is ‘hate speech.’” Coulter said. “And I explained to her the long Anglo-Saxon tradition of free speech and the idea that in the whirlwind and competition of ideas, the truth will emerge and how we’re going to be losing this the more cultures we bring in [to America] who think there are two different categories here.”
Coulter addressed the use of the term “illegal immigrant.”
“Do not police my speech!” she said. “Screw you! I’ll use which words I want. Do not tell me not to call an illegal act illegal. It is illegal. That’s what I mean when I say illegal.”
Not backing down, Coulter explained how the right to free speech is at risk.
“This is part of the cultural attributes of America that will change by dumping third worlders on the country,” she told Pacheco, in response to her question. “You don’t have a tradition of John Stuart Mill.”
