Ben Shapiro Rips Off Ann Coulter’s Tweet, Wusses It Up

Published

on

In the spirit of Independence Day, #NeverTrump political commentator Ben Shapiro appears to have ripped of a Tweet made by a true American patriot, and conservative hero, Ann Coulter. The Tweet was in response to U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) who cited the fact that eight immigrants signed the Declaration of Independence.

In response, Ann Coulter correctly pointed out that while eight were immigrants, they were all British or Dutch, coming from the same countries that all the other signers came from. It was clearly a witty attack on Harris, who was almost certainly using the eight immigrant signers to support her pro-illegal immigration agenda. It doesn’t matter to her that none of the signers came from Mexico or South America, which are the main counties involved in the modern immigration debate in the United States.

Presumably after seeing Coutler’s Tweet, Ben Shapiro saw his moment to shine, rewording the Tweet made by Coulter, but weakening the message by not directly stating the fact that the eight immigrant signers fit the exact demographic mold of the United States in 1776.

While there is no way to confirm that Shapiro did in fact rip of Ann Coulter, it can be assumed when a few very simple factors are taken into account. First, Shapiro follows Ann Coulter on Twitter, but does not follow Sen. Harris. Second, Shapiro’s Tweet came just 30 minutes after Coulter’s, making it extremely likely that her Tweet was his inspiration.

Of course, Shapiro made Coulter’s tweet a lamer version. Benji removed the entire message behind Coulter’s tweet: America has a history of LEGAL European immigrants, not ILLEGAL immigrants from third world countries.

Ben Shapiro seems to have simply been looking for something profound to say on Twitter. As somebody with very little profound to say himself, who makes the majority of his arguments based off of bumper stickers he has read, Coulter is a good source of profound content. She has long been a leading voice against illegal immigration for many years, and unlike Shapiro, she actually voted for President Donald Trump.

New Gallup Poll Shows Immigration Tops Most Important Problem List

Published

on

When Americans were asked what they feel is the most important problem facing the nation, immigration topped the list for just the second time in Gallup’s history. The top issue each month since January of 2017 has been the government, but immigration has just replaced its position according to a new Gallup poll.

When asked the same question in June, immigration ranked at 14% when Gallup asked Americans what’s the “most important problem” the nation faces. It jumped from 14% to 22% from June to July 2018.

Each month, Gallup asks the same question and the answer of immigration has always averaged 5% over the 17 years Gallup has included it in their polls. So why the sudden jump from 14% to 22%?

The past several weeks social media and news outlets alike have focused on the issue of separating families at the border with President Trump’s stance on immigration and his modified policy that would keep families detained together (if detainment must occur) continuing to be a hot button issue.

Just last month, TIME ran the cover story, “A Reckoning After Trump’s Border Separation Policy: What Kind of Country Are We,” with the cover photo that was proven to be fake news. The cover showed a 2-year-old little girl crying while President Trump towers above her looking on as she wails. The cover read simply “Welcome to America.” The claim made by Time was that the little girl had been separated from her family at the border, but Yanela, daughter to Sandra Sanchez had never been separated from her mother at all. Sanchez and her daughter were arrested by Border Patrol agents under the zero tolerance policy that criminally charges anyone attempting to cross the border illegally, but at no point were they separated.

Every week immigration has remained in the news cycle, and continues to be an issue that is important to Americans. The Washington Examiner reported on Monday that The National Guard’s deployment to the southwest border in mid-April has led to 10,805 “deportable alien arrests” of people who entered into the United States from Mexico illegally. The National Guard has also intercepted more than 3,300 others who were turned back at the border before crossing into the U.S., and have seized 11,686 pounds of marijuana.

In April of 2006, immigration reached 19% when Congress was working on passing a comprehensive immigration bill. During this time period, immigration protests popped up all across America and saturated the news cycle. The last spike, according to Gallup of immigration as the top problem was in 2014 when the news focused its attention on a large number of immigrants who were attempting to enter the U.S. from Central America.

The issue of immigration is important to Americans, but for starkly different reasons. Republicans are more concerned about potential crime, impacts on the nation’s economy, and jobs being taken away from native-born families. Democrats, in contrast, support a path to citizenship for the undocumented, but more over, they know that they need all the help they can get at the polls, with Trump’s base stronger than ever heading into the Midterms.

The Gallup poll is based on telephone interviews conducted July 1-11 with a random sample of 1,033 adults in all 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia. It has a margin of error of 4 percentage points and a 95 percent confidence level.
