When political pundit Ann Coulter made disparaging comments on Twitter claiming that presidential candidates were pandering to the Jewish community and questioned some candidates’ focus on Israel during the CNN Republican debate on September 16, white supremacists and anti-Semites were gleeful that she took on what they call “the Jewish question.” Extremists believe that Coulter was exposing alleged “Jewish power” in this country.
This is not the first time that extremists have lauded Coulter for her views. Extremists have been talking about Coulter for a number of years on Stormfront, the largest white supremacist Internet forum.
While there are myriad opinions about Coulter, she has become increasingly popular among extremists who see her as a voice for white nationalism or at least someone who might influence conservatives to move toward white nationalist views.
Coulter does not have any ties to the white supremacists who support her but what she says on issues such as immigration or demographics often resonates with them.
There are generally three extremist perspectives about Coulter: 1) that she is actually a white nationalist who is bringing that cause to the wider public; 2) that she has some good points but should not be embraced because she doesn’t deal with the “Jewish question” (at least until the debate took place), and 3) that she is a neoconservative who is not to be trusted.
