Ann Coulter: ‘Different Ethnic Groups Have … Different Predilections For Crimes’ (VIDEO)

Conservative commentator Ann Coulter said something during a Thursday appearance on Phoenix news station that seemed to surprise her interviewer.

“Different ethnic groups have sort of different predilections for crimes,” Coulter told KSAZ anchor Troy Hayden in an interview to promote her latest book. “And I go through the various groups (in my book) and the various types of crimes.”

Hayden then asked her: “You were quoted as saying Mexicans are more likely to rape children. Is that correct? Did I quote you correctly?”

Coulter said it was correct.

“That’s a big thing,” Coulter said. “You will find a lot of it. And you find the media, the main point I’m making in my book, is how the media hides it.”

In addition to the crimes Mexicans are more likely to commit, according to Coulter, she listed other nationalities as well.

“With the Albanians, it’s credit card fraud. Nigerians, credit card fraud. Russians, human smuggling,” Coulter said.

“People might say that’s very racist talk from you,” the anchor pressed her. “You’re basically saying this race of people or this nationality of people commit these types of crimes.”

Coulter replied, “Well, a predilection, yeah.”

Watch the full interview, from KSAZ, below. Her comments about ethnic groups begin at 3:40.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.

Sincerely,
TPM Staff
