Finally Fed-Up, Conservatives Turn Against Ann Coulter


Enraged conservatives turn against Ann Coulter

It seems conservatives have finally had enough of Ann Coulter’s bigoted remarks regarding immigrants – at least when it comes to her latest online hate-fest regarding South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley who delivered the official GOP response to President Barack Obama’s State of the Union speech on Tuesday.

Following Pres. Obama’s lead, Haley did everything but call out Republican hopeful Donald Trump by name in regards to immigration.

“Today, we live in a time of threats like few others in recent memory,” Haley said, adding: “During anxious times, it can be tempting to follow the siren call of the angriest voices. We must resist that temptation. No one who is willing to work hard, abide by our laws and love our traditions should ever feel unwelcome in this country.”

Ann Coulter was quick to respond through her Twitter account in a series of tweets, going so far as to state that “Trump should deport Nikki Haley.”

As Huffington Post reports, Haley is the daughter of Indian immigrants.

Conservatives fired back at Coulter from a variety of sources and manners.

Kimberly Ross, a contributor for the conservative website RedState, told conservative women to look to Haley as a role model and not Coulter.

“[Coulter] is completely incapable of making a positive impact on the things which matter most,” she wrote, adding: “She isn’t a role model for conservatism or conservative women. For that, look to Governor Nikki Haley.”

Matt Moore, the chairman of the South Carolina Republican Party, stated that “what Ann Coulter said is despicable.”

Others took to Twitter directly to express contempt for Coulter’s tweets.

Conservative staff correspondent for the Washington Examiner and former writer for Glenn Beck’s The Blaze, T. Becket Adams, posted a tweet calling Coulter “looney.”

Liz Mair, the former adviser to Carly Fiorina and Gov. Rick Perry (R-TX) as well as Online Communications Director at the Republican National Committee for the 2008 campaign took to Twitter as well.

Katie Johnson, Digital Copywriter for the National Republican Senatorial Committee had a scathing response:

Bubba Atkinson, the Editor in Chief for the ultra-conservative IJ Review, responded:
