American Political Commentator Ann Coulter Disses Nigeria: “At The University Of Lagos, You Can Major In Credit Card Fraud”

Just weeks after Republican Sen.Ted Cruz compared the glitches plaguing the website for Obama’s signature health care law to the methodologies of “Nigerian email scammers”, drawing diplomatic anger of Nigeria, another American has picked on the country.

“You may have noticed that all the Nigerian email scammers have become a lot less active lately,” Cruz said, according to the Houston Chronicle. “They all have been hired to run the Obamacare website.”

Ann Coulter, a rabid conservative ideologue, in an article posted on Yahoo, ridiculed Nigerians, over the Obamacare.

Coulter wrote: “Do you notice anything that stands out about the list of convicts? Would any of their names have sounded strange to Ben Franklin? Of 22 people convicted of defrauding American taxpayers by fraudulently billing Medicare or Medicaid, at least 17 have almost comically foreign names.

“None of the scammers should be foreigners! We can’t do anything about our native-born crooks, but why are we importing them?

“Enormous, unwieldy corrupt government programs run by arrogant bureaucrats would be bad enough in 1950. But after decades of our Third World-only immigration policies, one can’t help noticing that Medicare and Medicaid are beckoning Disneylands for foreign-born thieves.

“The problem isn’t their complexion, it’s their culture. In America, we think only dumb people become criminals. That’s not true in the Third World!

“Nigeria, for example, leads the world in criminal enterprises. Every level of Nigerian society is criminal, with the smart ones running Internet scams, the mid-range ones running car theft rings, and the stupid ones engaging in piracy and kidnapping. At the University of Lagos, you can major in credit card fraud.

“There were almost no Nigerians in the United States until the 1970s. Today, there are nearly 250,000 Nigerians in the U.S. (committing the cyber-crime Americans just won’t do!). In 2011, we took in more immigrants from Nigeria than from the United Kingdom (9,246 from the U.K. and 9,344 from Nigeria).

“Of course, Obamacare never would have passed without decades of massive immigration from the Third World. Liberals didn’t change any minds — they changed the voters. In order to pass Obamacare, Democrats had to bring in the Third World to vote Democratic.

“The downside is that the country is now chock-full of people who come from cultures where criminality and government corruption is a way of life — at the very moment that the country is expanding a government-run health insurance program already shot through with fraud and abuse.

“Only confiscatory tax rates can support such a system.

“Gosh, I sure hope our new Somali and Nigerian immigrants have German-style rectitude and are very honest about reporting all their income to the government”.

Recent events have shown how dented the image of Nigeria is many countries of the world, with the Minister of Goa in India freely using derogatory comments following protests by Nigerians in the province after a Nigerian was killed in a drug-related attack.

Coulter was once alleged to have refused to stay onboard a commercial airline flight to New York from Miami after learning the pilot was a woman of African-American descent, an allegation the conservative commentator and author denied.

The text and photo below was said to have originated in a satirical (i.e., fictitious) article published on the humor website The Daily Currant on Jan. 29, 2013.

Nigeria is yet to respond to Ann Coulter’s disparaging comment.

Ann Hart Coulter was born December 8, 1961. An American conservative social and political commentator, writer, syndicated columnist, and lawyer, Coulter frequently appears on television, radio, and as a speaker at public and private events.

She rose to prominence as a talking head in the 1990s as an outspoken critic of the Clinton administration. Well known for her conservative political opinions and the controversial ways in which she presents and defends them, Coulter has described herself as a polemicist who likes to “stir up the pot”, and does not “pretend to be impartial or balanced, as broadcasters do”, sometimes drawing criticism from the right, as well as the left.

  1. I can’t believe a we’ll read person like Ann Coulter could come out with such pathetic prejudice..is a big shame.Is high time you changed your racial ways of causing confusion..stop your evil ways and stop causing confusion in America

  2. Yes, Nigeria is corrupt and evil; it’s such hate comments that drove some people to aim your airplanes at your buildings! At least Nigerians haven’t descended to the depth of taking animals to bed, or worse still, same sex individuals to the altar!

  3. You are nothing but just a frustrated racist bith…every part of the world has its own evil side…bitches like you are curses to humanity…

  4. This is very sad and shameful, as we try to curb the name calling and racial slur, some so called educated ones are pulling it down. It’s unacceptable to call a whole group of people rogues. Many of us go to school, work really hard, and help build this great country, America. The American jail is filled with all sorts, not Nigerians or Africans. Ms. Ann, if you are going to judge or analyze, do it fairly, analyzing the good and bad. I won’t be surprised if you blamed the Native or the Blacks for the treatment received in America. My dear, look inwards before you start writing. It’s not called third world for nothing, they are growing and they will one day clean their mess. America is over 400 years while Nigerian for example is just over 60 years.

  5. I AM A NIGERIAN I SPEAK FROM NEW YORK, WE JUST HAVE TO FACE THE TRUTH, OUT OF EVERY 10 MAJOR CRIMES COMMITTED IN THE WORLD TO DAY NIGERIANS WOULD BE INVOLVED IN 8, EVERY WHERE FROM THE PRESIDENCY TO THE UNIVERSITY STUDENT HAS CORRUPTION / CRIME WRITTEN ON THEIR FACES. FROM SECRET KILLING OF POLITICAL OPPONENT TO MILLITANCY, KIDNAPPING, CREDIT CARD FRAUD, ARMED ROBBERY, IF ANYTHING I STAND FOR IN MY LIFE IS THE TRUTH, HONESTY AND INTERGRITY, THESE FRAUDELENT NIGERIANS ARE A BIG SHAME TO THE CULTURE/BACKGROUND THEY BELONG:( STOP THIS CRIME)

  6. Every country has its own crop of corruption, all these internet frauds….are what we learn from America. We know we aren’t holy in Nigeria but this woman should stop picking on us for cheap publicity. Let them remove the log of wood in their eyes and stop blaming foreigners for their misfortunes.
    Up Nigeria, we are always good at whatever we are thought. With time corruption will be eliminated to a minimum.

  7. Ms Ann seems to blame every crime committed by Nigerians. Am an economist by profession&i was born&bred in Nigeria,u have a terrible assumption about all of us. Have ever being to Nigeria? there are alot hard working people who make honest living in this country&no university in Nigeria majors in credit card fraud.Am disappointed in u,i didn’t know u are this shallow in thinking. yes corruption has eaten deep into the Nigerian polity but doesn’t make us all criminals

  8. @Matthew I feel ur pain,yet sorry for u cos u are Nigerian birth and nothing can change ur blood even a surgery.@fina change is constant and its on its way to Nigeria.@Chan thank u, our culture remains in Africa is fall better.
    Madam Ann its a pity that people consider u an elite however not all talkers/TV present/analyst/activist are literate. I am deeply sorry for u, ur understanding and ur believes for nothing last forever. D world is aware of d plans/polt of ur great country.
    Nigeria is ours; Nigeria we serve. Great people, Good nation

  9. Can anyone tell me a single thing that is not true in all this woman said? Why are we Nigerians always like this? We know all these and we keep quiet but when anyone is bold to tell it to our faces, we will vilify the person instead of looking for ways to curb our people’s’criminality. We need serious change of attitude for that is the only way we can avoid all these insultd

  10. Hmmmn…this kind of woman is the type that you meet at the US Embassy and she would just deny a noble,responsible and hardworking Nigerian a US VISA for no just cause. Ms. Ann I want you to know that no condition is permanent,cos the BIG MAN up there controls every destiny,believe it or not! Just be careful with the way u speak against a whole nation,it might ruin you,you know!

  11. Its just payback time for d Americans n its so pathetic that they are complaining now,after their conspiracy to impoverish nigerians.Americans n d west buy our oil @ cheap price n influence our ruling elite with cheap bribes @ d masses peril.don’t forget that all d irre gularities happening in nigeria is just directly or indirectly linked to Americans self centred conspiracy.n d only way to get back is through all this criminalities against them.I don’t support such criminalities but to an extent it is justifiable.let dem b sincere in dealing wit us n they will have a soft landing getting those criminals.as for dat political commentator ,she is still thinking we are still foolish n unclever not to know a way to get back @ them…God bless Nigeria..God bless America.

  12. Nigeria is a country of about 165 million people, 55 yrs old and still one of the third countries. no crime is a monopoly of d Nigerian people and was invented by Nigeria. corruption in Nigeria today is being abetted by American organizations and cocompanies and their cronies. it is a shame that Ann is picking Nigeria as a bedrock of credit Card scams and all sorts of corruption. calling a population of over 165 million people corrupt, is sickening by a lawyer who should knw better. it is a shame.she has refused to see the honest contributions of Nigerians in d USA and beyond. we knw we have not gotten there, but we will n d likes of Ann will be shamed.

  13. Idiotic,attention seeking bitch! Just limit yuor utterances to yr decadent american society and leave out Nigeria. This are the type that makes corrective raping justifiable like it happens in South Africa.

  14. It is unfortunate that Ms Ann Hart Coulter can not come to grips with having a black man in the white house. Her statements potray her as a racist and a a person that neeeds psychiatric counselling on racial tolerance.
    Better still, she be moved from 2013 to 14th century.
