Ann Coulter on Book Event Protesters: At Least They ‘Weren’t Molesting Any 4-Year-Olds’


Ann Coulter’s signing this week at a Barnes and Nobles in Costa Mesa, California was met with some fierce resistance from immigration activists who loudly objected to the ideas put forward in her latest book, Adios, America.

“Two, four, six, eight, we don’t need your racist hate!” protesters reportedly chanted, holding a banner that read, “Adios, Ann Coulter” and screaming at her to “Go back to Europe!”

OC Weekly reporter Gabriel San Roman wrote that he confronted Coulter on a number of issues when he reached the front of the line, but was escorted out of the building by security when she realized he was a “foe, not a fan.”

He added:

I walked out of the bookstore with ¡Adios, America! still in hand. Roughly 30 protesters started chanting me down saying “Shame on you! Shame on you!” I gave them the book to use in the protest instead. “Do whatever you want with it!” I told them. They proceeded to rip pages from it, littering the floor in front of the bookstore with Coulter confetti.

Bystanders captured the videos below and posted them to YouTube:

Breitbart was able to get a response to the incident from Coulter herself, who did not disappoint with her overheated rhetoric, which may have actually upped the ante on Donald Trump’s Mexican “rapist” comments.

“You have to understand,” Coulter said, “screaming and defacing things is how Latin Americans express disagreement. At least as long as they were destroying books and screaming in a book store, they weren’t molesting any 4-year-olds.”
