B’nai B’rith International condemns Ann Coulter for her ugly remarks on Twitter during last night’s Republican presidential debate. During the final questions of the debate, several of the candidates expressed support for Israel, causing Coulter to take to social media to angrily accuse them of pandering to Jewish voters and asking on Twitter: “How many f---ing Jews do these people think there are in the United States.”
Coulter’s comments were beyond crass. Whatever her intention, her comments came across to many as deeply offensive to all who value the important alliance between the United States and the democracy of Israel. Her odious words clearly demonstrate her endless desire for attention and causing conflict.
B’nai B’rith laments that it is contributing to the spotlight on Coulter and her comments, but this is another example of spreading hate through punditry and it should not be tolerated.
