On the 15th anniversary of 9/11, conservative firebrand Ann Coulter has used the occasion to bash Muslims.
“It’s bad enough we have to hear all the 9/11 widows trotting out their grief again,” she told the Conservative Chronicle. “But in our PC media environment, we also have to listen to Muslims complaining about alleged Islamophobia.”
Coulter continued her rant on Twitter. She wrote: “TV networks preparing specials on how Muslims have suffered in America since then.”
A few weeks after 9/11 Coulter was fired for writing a column in the National Review saying we should carpet bomb Muslim countries and force them to convert to Christianity. She has also referred to Muslims as “ragheads” and “jihad monkeys.” Coulter was recently savaged for her bigotry at Comedy Central’s “Roast of Rob Lowe.”
However, hate crimes against Muslims skyrocketed after 9/11. They have also spiked again in the advent of hate-mongering from Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, who once promised to ban Muslim immigration.
According to The New York Daily News, Emirjeta Xhelili was arrested for attacking two Muslim women who were out walking their babies. Xhelili attempted to rip off their hijabs and knock over a stroller containing a 15-month old baby.
She also yelled, “Trump’s gonna win.”
