Is Ann Coulter sending out dog whistles to show her solidarity with neo-Nazis?
Several white nationalists seem to think that’s the case after Coulter mysteriously tweeted out the number “14” on Thursday morning without offering any explanation or additional context.

In case you aren’t familiar with white nationalist lore, the number 14 is significant because it refers to the “14 words” that American white nationalist godfather David Lane wrote as a battle cry for his fellow neo-Nazis: “We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children.”
The number is often paired with the number “88,” as the letter “H” just happens to be the eighth letter in the alphabet, and “H.H.” is short for “Heil Hitler.”
While it’s hard to know if Coulter was really trying to send out this particular dog whistle, it was heard loud and very clear by neo-Nazis who follow her on Twitter.
We must secure the existence of our People and a future for White children.
