Figures associated with the American Far-Right are either praising or discounting the extermination of Myanmar's Muslim populace, commonly referred to as the Rohingya people.

The Burmese government is engaged in a campaign of ethnic cleansing that has displaced more than 600,000 Rohingya civilians from their homes. Burmese military forces have burned dozens of Rohingya villages, raped women and girls, and murdered scores of people, according to an October report from Amnesty International.

Americans on the far-right are praising the Burmese's extermination efforts against its Muslim population.

Ann Colter:

On Sept. 6, Ann Coulter retweeted a video from Voice of Europe, a right-wing account. “Monk: Muslims want to make Myanmar an Islamic country and they are destroying Buddhism.. They breed rapidly,” the tweet read.

Pamela Geller:

Pamela Geller, who Steve Bannon has called “one of the leading experts in the country if not the world” on Islam, regularly suggests the Rohingya are responsible for the violence in Burma.

Pamela Geller:

In 2013, Pamela Geller wrote that the Burmese “have every right to be concerned” about Rohingya presence in the country. In another post that year, she directed readers to a book called The Rohingya Hoax, which calls the existence of the Rohingya people “an ethnological fraud” and “humbug.”
