Ann Coulter sent out a tweet during the second debate of the GOP primary season that’s been accused of being anti-Semitic. Despite the backlash, Coulter remains unapologetic.

Anne Coulter Anti-Semitic Tweet

During the CNN-hosted debate for the top 11 Republican presidential hopefuls, Coulter took to Twitter. “How many f—ing Jews do these people think there are in the United States?” wrote the stanch conservative.

Many took Coulter’s tweet to be anti-Semitic, deducing that Coulter was espousing the harmful ideology that Jewish people are pulling the strings in America. Coulter, however, has defended her tweets and claimed that the accusations are completely erroneous.

According to Coulter, her tweet was merely a comment on the aforementioned ideology, which she believes is infecting the GOP field.

“I’m accusing Republicans of thinking the Jews have so much power,” Coulter told The Daily Beast. “They’re the ones who are comedically acting out this play where Jews control everything.”

As for her tweet, Coulter explained, “I think it was ripped out of context and lied about,” adding, “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.”

“There is no doubt that the Republican Party is the party of Israel and of Life,” Coulter continued. “So why keep sucking up on Israel?”

Coulter went even further in defending her support of Israel by pointing to her position on immigration. By Coulter’s logic, the “browning of America” will spell trouble for the country. According to her, those immigrating into America are overwhelmingly anti-Semitic and will not support causes beneficial to Israel.

“I can count on Americans to protect Israel,” Coulter said. “I don’t count on foreigners to care about Israel, and that’s who’s coming in to vote.”
