American right-wing personality and Trump supporter has suggested Middle Eastern -- i.e. Arab and/or Muslim -- migrants and refugees cannot stop themselves from raping Western women, citing this as the reason they must be barredfrom entering the United States.
Appearing on Fox News with Sean Hannity, Coulter railed against allowing more refugees to enter the United States from Middle Eastern nations identified by the Trump administration in its new so-caled Muslim ban as being potentially dangerous.
The migrants can’t “stop themselves from raping masses of women”, Coulter claimed, repeating now-debunked allegations about mass rape of German women by refugees.
“Why can’t we learn from Western Europe?” said Coulter on Friday night. “Just a few weeks ago, German intelligence reports [sic] 1,000 German residents have gone to fight with ISIS. Hundreds have come back to Germany, and what does [Chancellor Angela] Merkel do? She’s setting them up with welfare, because you know, if they don’t have a lot of welfare, that could radicalise them.”
“Why don’t we believe what these migrants say?” said Coulter. “They come to countries, they rape women. They are having a very difficult time learning not to rape women—even if they’re infidel whores and have short skirts. What other immigrant group could not stop itself from raping masses of women?”
Coulter also said the mix of “German military discipline with Islamic ideology” is “terrifying.”
Coulter’s comments came the same day Merkel had her first meeting with President Donald Trump.
Anne Coulter is a controversial figure in the United States who has made many outrageous racist statements in the past. In 2005, she wrote: "I think the government should be spying on all Arabs, engaging in torture as a televised spectator sport, dropping daisy cutters wantonly throughout the Middle East and sending liberals to Guantanamo."
Merkel has received significant criticism from Trump and right-wingers in the United States, and far-right parties in Europe for admitting large numbers of refugees fleeing conflicts in the Middle East, especially in Syria.
On March 6, Trump announced a new executive order banning travel into the United States from six Muslim-majority countries. Trump's new ban has since been overturned by a federal judge, the second move of its kind.
The federal judge, based in Hawaii, determined that the order could violate First Amendment religious liberty protections for discriminating against Muslims.
