Ann Coulter on Twitter:

Yes, this is what I call MSM Backlash Libel—it’s obvious at this point that France isn’t being xenophobic enough.

The possibility that one of the attackers was a migrant or had posed as one is sure to further complicate the already vexing problem for Europe of how to handle the unceasing flow of people from Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere. It could also lend weight to the xenophobic arguments of right-wing populists like Marine Le Pen, the leader of the National Front party, who on Saturday held a news conference to declare that “France and the French are no longer safe.”

Three Teams of Coordinated Attackers Carried Out Assault on Paris, Officials Say; Hollande Blames ISIS

By Adam Nossiter, Aurelien Breeden And Katrin Bennhold, NYT, November 14, 2015

Hollande closed the French border for a while in response to the attack. This Tweet by Ann links to a Tweet from David Frum: “Maybe guard the border before the massacre.”

You should see the outpouring of perfervid hate directed at Frum in response. It’s not right-wing hate, it’s left-wing hate.

I’m afraid Frum’s position as a post-Conservative writer of the Atlantic means that his Twitter followers are “liberals”—which means that their response to a dissident Tweet looks like this:

  • @davidfrum shut down your account.
  • @davidfrum take that advice. seriously, man, shut it down.
  • @davidfrum really? you chose this over shutting your stupid mouth or expressing sympathy or empathy? wow, dude. Wow.
  • @davidfrum seriously tone deaf comment that is both insensitive and politically implausible.
  • @davidfrum disgraceful comment based on nothing but ignorant prejudice
Of course, these are all people who used to respect Frum for his "centrist" position on the abolition of American gun rights. You know, I think I prefer being on the Dissident Right to hanging around with people like that.
