Ann Coulter defends ‘F-ing Jews’ remarks, says debate was ‘pandering’

Conservative talking head Ann Coulter landed in the headlines after her comments after the GOP presidential debate where she wanted to call for other issues other than the Iranian deal. Coulter said on twitter: “How many f—ing Jews do these people think there are in the United States?”

Turning to the Daily Beast, Coulter said the controversy was all based on a misunderstanding. She didn’t mean to say that Jews were hoarding influence in this country. Not at all. “I’m accusing Republicans of thinking the Jews have so much power. They’re the ones who are comedically acting out this play where Jews control everything,” Coulter said.

Coulter’s point was to criticize Republican candidates pandering to Israel, so the Beast asked if it is still problematic to say that a group of politicians think Jews have too much power?

“Well,” she interjected, “this episode is not going a long way to disprove that.”

“My point was this whole culture of virtue-signaling where debates are about nothing.  Look, Republicans all agree 100% that we are pro-Israel, pro-Life, pro-gun. So why do we spend so much time on these issues?  It’s just pandering, so who are they pandering to?”

The Beast asked whether Coulter could understand how some Jews might still be offended by its language, reminiscent as it is of the centuries-old canard that the Jews control Washington/Hollywood/World Banking/whatever.

“No,” she said, “I don’t think it was my language. I think it was ripped out of context and lied about…. Anyone following any of the debate in America knew exactly what I was talking about…  My tweet was about Republicans and the pandering. It wasn’t about Israel, it wasn’t about Jews. It’s what Republicans are thinking in their little pea brains. I could say the same thing about Evangelicals.  Who are you pandering to?  A lot of it is to Sheldon Adelson and the Evangelicals…. This kind of suck-uppery is humiliating.”
