Is Ann Coulter Actually Calling for Illegal Immigrants to be Executed at the Border?

During the past few years, Ann Coulter has branded herself as a hardliner among hardliners on the issue of immigration, but several tweets this evening exhibited extreme-sounding rhetoric, even for the firebrand blonde.

From her book and columns complaining about the “browning of America” to her infamous tweet during the GOP presidential primaries that she supported Donald Trump’s immigration plan so much that she didn’t care if he wanted to perform abortions in the White House, Coulter has positioned herself among the far right when it comes to immigration. She’s prioritized that issue above all others traditionally found in the Republican platform.

Tonight’s controversy started when Breitbart Texas Managing Director Brandon Darby tweeted at someone who had replied to a Breitbart article about a convicted criminal caught illegally crossing the United States – Mexico border with a call to “execute” such people. Darby, who also serves as the Director of Breitbart’s Cartel Chronicles project covering border control and drug cartel stories, questioned whether executing migrants at the border was truly Christian.


And that’s when Coulter joined the conversation, rejecting Darby’s Biblical interpretation and saying that “God frequently commanded his people to kill ‘every living thing.'”

Darby replied with an offer to send Coulter a free New Testament, since her Bible “seemed to be missing that part.”

I’m no theological scholar, but Coulter could have found some helpful language in the Old Testament as well, particularly those verses in Exodus 20:1-17 that spell out “Thou shall not kill” and several other directives in very clear language.

What are they called again? Oh, yeah. Commandments. Pretty basic stuff Christians learn in Sunday School as very young children. Not quite sure how the well-educated Coulter missed all that, but oh well.


Anyway, Coulter then threw an odd retort back at Darby that, “Jesus isn’t Mohammed. It’s the same God.”

Darby tweeted a reference to a recent column by Coulter titled, “We Used To Care About One Another,” and lamented the “attitudes of many Christians” that he found to be “disturbing.”

Is Coulter really calling for the death penalty for illegal immigrants? Sure sounds that way. “Disturbing,” indeed.
