@AnnCoulter, Trump’s 3D Chess is #Winning! (Part I)

Ann Coulter abhors 3D Chess and castigates Trump over it. Why? She can’t grasp how he does it!

Coulter wants Trump to do things her way, not his way. But Trump is winning, winning, winning – on every front! Yet, all Coulter does is whine, whine, whine.

Coulter Abhors 3D Chess

Coulter is smart and, at times, brilliant. She possesses an exquisite command of the English language and is renowned for her witty repartee. But she cannot grasp 3D chess. (Perhaps checkers is more her style.)

But, Ann, Trump’s 3D Chess is WORKING!

America is Winning, Winning, Winning by every imaginable measure! In the economy, the judiciary, foreign policy, reducing government and incresaing liberty, defending the preborn and people of faith, and putting a check of the world’s most dangerous tyrants and regimes.

Peace and prosperity is a winning platform! (Who, besides leftists and Ann Coulter, could be against that formula?)

More recently, Larry O’Connor observed:

The Washington Examiner recently reported:

“The unemployment rate for adult men and women stands at 3.3%, 6.0% for blacks, and 4.3% for Hispanics.”

Remember the maxim: “It’s the economy, stupid!”

Support for Trump is gaining in very single demographic. Meanwhile, Leftists have exposed their extremism and demonstrated just how out-of-sync they really are with Middle America.

America is winning, winning, winning, but all Ann does is whine, whine, whine.

Why?

.@AnnCoulter, Coward of the Country

Erstwhile “conservative icon” Ann Coulter continues to prove herself to be the Coward of the Country!

Coulter, author of In Trump We Trust and Resistance Is Futile (both failures), quickly became a member of the Resistance and has even declared herself Never Trump for the rest of her life in a remarkably rash and remarkably clear vow to the American People.

Those familiar with her work know that Coulter is prone to making rash and hasty decisions and intemperate declarations such as her vow quoted above.

Does she regret her words? Her rashness? Has Coulter, at the age of 57, yet to learn from past mistakes?

Conversely, has she fled the massive negative feedback from her views by retreating into other areas and missions?

Repentance and forgiveness are not part of Coulter’s repertoire. Admitting error, or weakness of any kind, is not in her moral or emotional DNA.

Indeed, Coulter lacks the courage to admit she made a mistake. Apologize? Never! Admit error or a moral failing? Not a chance!

At a recent event at the New York Young Republicans Club, Coulter exhorted the audience: “Be brave, be Christian, and don’t worry about Liberals.”

Does Coulter practice what she preaches? Decidedly not.

“Be brave, be Christian, and don’t worry about Liberals.” – These are not attributes which are prevalent in Coulter’s own life.

Has Coulter Kept Her Vow?

As of this writing, Coulter has written 25 columns since pledging to denounce Trump in every one of her columns for the rest of her life.

Did she follow through on her promise to her fans, her audience, herself?

Of course not.

Only five columns (20%) denounced Trump and/or his “bloodsucking relatives.” In some of the remaining columns, Coulter took a few slight snipes at Trump, but they were hardly denunciations. In other columns, Coulter tacitly defended Trump on the periphery.

In four columns, Coulter actually explicitly defended Trump (on Cohen’s porn-star payoff, fake Russian collusion narrative, false Epstein-Trump narrative, and phony Charlottesville-Nazi narrative).

Three columns addressed immigration and its societal costs and changing racial demographics.

Two columns condemned marijuana while a third addressed those incarcerated for drug-related crimes.

Two columns were devoted to Robert Mueller.

Two columns lambasted the Central Park Five.

One column covered Felicity Huffman and the elite college admissions scandals.

One column deified Thurgood Marshall while vilifying Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

One column vindicated Thomas Jefferson from historical revisionism while another column addressed historical revisionism and cultural Marxism in general.

One column explicitly attacked the Swamp (instead of Trump) and another column examined the relationships between Jeffrey Epstein, Alex Acosta, and Barry Krischer (tacitly defending Trump).

Coulter Has Not Kept Her Vow!

Why not?

Either she quickly realized the foolishness of her vow, or she fears that by keeping her vow she will alienate the dwindling remainder of her fans, peers, and colleagues. Either way, Coulter has again taken the coward’s way out.

Coulter should either courageously own up to and apologize for making a mistake or she should courageously keep her vow even if it has a negative impact on her career and livelihood.

Coulter loves to be viewed as a courageous heroine, but, whenever the going gets rough, she chooses the easy (cowardly) way out. This is but the most recent example.

@AnnCoulter, NOT @Drudge, is the #WackyNutJob

Ann Coulter calls President Trump a coward for not calling Matt Druge a #WackyNutJob.

Ann, not Matt, is the wacky one!

Coulter is the Real Culprit!

But it is Coulter – not Drudge – who has done the following:

Coulter wrote a book, In Trump We Trust, and, for three years, has not trusted Trump.

Coulter wrote a book, Resistance Is Futile, and has joined the (futile) Resistance as one of its most vocal and virulently hostile critics of Trump.

Coulter had a lengthy, infective-filled shouting match with the President – in the Oval Office – and is actually proud of her moment of ignomy.

Coulter is the alleged “conservative” who has, over the course of three years, threatened and bullied the President of the United States with impeachment if he does not do exactly what she wants done the way she wants it accomplished.

Coulter is the alleged “journalist” who has engaged in a nasty name-calling campaign against President Trump for three years, vilifying his character, integrity, intelligence, and America First agenda. No reputable, objective journalist would do that! (Is Ann auditioning for CNN?)

Highlights of Coulter’s Invective Against Trump

“Our candidate is mental. Do you realize our candidate is mental?” – Ann Coulter!

In a rather strange interview with Politico, Coulter expressed her frequent frustration with Trumpgetting the details wrong” and going off-script. So much so that Coulter said three times: “I wanted to shoot my TV.”

On the Sean Hannity Show (11/15/16), Coulter declared:

“The wall and deporting illegals … renegotiating trade deals and not starting pointless wars – those are the big ones. If he betrays us on those, they’ll impeach him and there’ll be nobody to defend him.”

According to The Times, Coulter told Trump, “I’m the only one losing money trying to get you in the White House, you’re going to listen to me.” After Trump’s immigration flip-flop, a piqued Coulter joked, “He just said something stupid, which he’s done before, and he will do again … he does need a little slap now and then.”

“Then it will be a bloodbath. Not only Trump, but also the entire GOP, is dead if he doesn’t build a wall. … It would be an epic betrayal … If he can’t do that, Trump is finished, the Republican Party is finished, and the country is finished.” – Ann Coulter, 4/26/17

“If you defend this man [Trump], I am coming down to your studio and holding your head under water until the bubbles stop.” – Ann Coulter, 5/3/17

“I think all of the Trump true believers are petrified.” – Ann Coulter, 5/14/17

“I am mad at the emperor God over this. He’s behaving like an infant.” – Ann Coulter, 7/26/17

“Trump is the worst negotiator I’ve ever seen.” – Ann Coulter, 9/14/17

“It is 100% his fault [that he isn’t building a wall]. … This is 100% Trump’s fault. The blame has to be laid at his feet so innocent Republicans don’t get blamed for this. … It is 100% Donald J. Trump’s fault that there is no wall and that he’s trying to push amnesty now.” – Ann Coulter, 9/15/17

“In order to prove he doesn’t have dementia, as alleged in a recent book, President Trump called a meeting with congressional leaders on Tuesday – and requested that it be televised. … He then proceeded to completely sell out the base and actually added to his problems by appearing senile.” – Ann Coulter, 1/10/18

I knew he was a shallow, lazy ignoramus, and I didn’t care.” – Ann Coulter, 3/27/18

“Trump’s claim that he was pulling out of the Iran deal in order ‘to protect America’s national security interests’ is a big, fat lie.” – Ann Coulter, 5/9/18

“[Trump] has a suck-up personality.” – Ann Coulter, 8/29/18

“The Swamp has succeeded beyond its wildest dreams. Trump seems to have completely forgotten about the one policy the left fears most.” – Ann Coulter, 9/5/18

“If he offered to pardon witnesses in exchange for their agreement to blame Steve Bannon for shooting Kushner – again: excellent example of obstruction of justice … But Trump hasn’t shot Kushner, and he probably won’t, since he doesn’t even realize that Kushner is wrecking his presidency.” – Ann Coulter, 9/13/18

“I’ve been a little upset with the president for keeping – let’s see – none of his promises.” – Ann Coulter, 10/17/18

“If Trump doesn’t keep his immigration promises, Hillary might as well have won. Trump will leave no legacy whatsoever. Without a wall, he will only be remembered as a small cartoon figure who briefly inflamed and amused the rabble.” – Ann Coulter, 11/28/18

Essay title: “GUTLESS PRESIDENT IN WALL-LESS COUNTRY” – Ann Coulter, 12/19/18

“Either Trump never intended to build a wall and was scamming voters from the beginning or he hasn’t the first idea in how to get it done and no interest in finding out. My prediction is his support will evaporate and Trump will very likely not finish his term and definitely not be elected to a second term.” – Ann Coulter, 12/19/18

“But you’ve chickened out. The only edifice you have built is constructed of tweets, press conferences and speeches.” – Ann Coulter, 1/23/19

“The longer our border stays open, the more I think Trump colluded with Russia.” – Ann Coulter, 2/12/19

“Look – the only national emergency is that our president is an idiot.” – Ann Coulter, 2/15/19

“The bill President Trump signed last Friday is worse than anything Hillary could ever have gotten through Congress.” – Ann Coulter, 2/20/19

“Hey liberals! Hot tip for you: You want to go after Trump? Point out he hasn’t kept any of his promises.” – Ann Coulter, 3/24/19

“No collusion and no wall. I’d prefer collusion and a wall.” – Ann Coulter, 3/25/19

Essay title: “ALL THE PRESIDENT’S BLOODSUCKING RELATIVES” – Ann Coulter, 4/17/19

“It turns out that instead of taking us away from hell, he’s zigzagging all over creation, sometimes getting stuck in a parking lot, sometimes heading straight for hell, then suddenly taking a left at the last minute, so that it’s never clear where we’re headed.” – Ann Coulter, 5/8/19

“Throughout 2016, we gave Trump cheese crackers every time he said, ‘Build the Wall!’ Yet, as with the Myna bird, it turns out he lacks any comprehension of what those words mean.” – Ann Coulter, 5/20/19

“Instead of Kobach, who could have saved the country, Trump appointed a series of imbeciles, who managed to engineer the worst immigration crisis in the nation’s history.” – Ann Coulter, 6/26/19

Yes, Ann, YOU are the #WackyNutJob!

@AnnCoulter, the Left’s Secret Weapon Against America

Ann Coulter is 100% wrong about Donald Trump and the 2020 election – and here’s why!

Coulter is a brilliant writer, but she is totally wrong about the 2020 election.

Coulter has claimed throughout Trump’s presidency that unless he builds a wall, he will lose in 2020 and Democrats will forever be in power overseeing America’s demise.

Coulter’s apocalyptic prediction has far less validity than any of the polls showing Hillary winning a landslide victory in 2016.

Even without a wall, Donald Trump will win with a landslide victory.

Let’s examine the validity of each of her claims.

Trump Will Lose the 2020 Elections

Coulter absurdly contends that Trump will get less votes in 2020 than he got in 2016.

Seriously?

First, Trump is an incumbent and incumbents generally possess huge advantages from that status.

Second, every demographic has benefited from Trump’s policies, which have resulted in a roaring and soaring economy, record unemployment for every demographic and increased wages and incomes across the board. Moreover, America has become energy independent, exporting oil.

Third, Trump has fought for Americans – all Americans – most notably the working class, the unborn, and people of faith.

Fourth, Trump is the most pro-American, pro-life, pro-freedom, pro-free market, pro-liberty, pro-military, and pro-Israel president America has had in my lifetime.

Fifth, Trump has exposed the Left for who they really are, showing them to be anti-American, anti-liberty, anti-Constitution, and anti-Christian fanatics who will subvert the law and employ mob rule to achieve their Progressive utopia.

In doing so, Trump has exposed the depth of – and subversive nature of – the fake news media, the deep state, the resistance, and all those who have sought and continue to seek to overthrow the results of the 2016 election.

Americans have discovered that there was “No collusion, no obstruction” and that it truly was a Russia hoax and witch hunt. We have also learned of spygate and the shadow government, tracing back to the Obama administration and Clinton candidacy.

Sixth, Trump has clearly delineated deep distinctions between the Left and the Right, between Socialism and Capitalism, between Identity Politics and Liberty for All.

Seventh, Trump’s enemies have overplayed their hands or are no longer in play: FBI, CIA, DOJ, Fake News Media, Obama, Hillary, and Hollywood. The Deep State is dwindling and scurrying for cover.

Meanwhile, the Left has proven itself to be the party of illegal aliens, infanticide, reparations, mob rule, and many other extremist positions in a growing number of areas – all anathema to most Americans, including moderate Democrats.

The Left has moved so far left that, contrary to Coulter’s assertions that Democrats will get more votes in 2020 than they did in 2016, I predict moderate Democrats will abandon the party and simply walk away.

Far from a shrinking fan base, Trump’s base is expanding in every demographic.

Democrats Will Get More Votes in 2020

A Politico feature listed a number of ways the Left can forfeit victory to Trump in 2020. Among them: “Hold firmly to the idea that Twitter is the beating heart of the real Democrat Party,” “Embrace the weird,” “Keep promising lots of free stuff and don’t seat paying for it,” “Go ahead and abolish private health insurance,” “Spend time talking about reparations,” “Lots more focus on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez,” “Socialism,” and be extremist on abortion, guns, and court-packing.

A Breitbart feature contended that it is already too late for the Democrats to pivot for a 2020 election victory. Joel Pollak’s lead paragraph:

“The near-unanimous verdict across the mainstream media about last week’s Democratic debates – from the New York Times to the Wall Street Journal – is that the party has moved so far to the left that it is jeopardizing its chances to unseat President Donald Trump in 2020.”

Pollak concluded: “It is not clear Democrats can right themselves. They are gambling the country will hate Trump so much by 2020, it will not matter.”

That gamble is disastrous for the Left, as Trump’s approval ratings among all demographics rises.

Philip Klein tweeted:

“There’s actually a relatively broad consensus among 2020 Dems on policies. It’s just that Biden wants to work with Rs to not get them; Warren/Harris want to steamroll Rs to not get them; and Bernie wants to start a revolution to not get them.”

To which Jonah Goldberg replied:

“This analysis is spot on, but leaves out Williamson who wants everyone to hold hands to form a human circle of love and positive energy to not get them.”

A tweet by Janie Johnson encapsulated Trump’s 2020 opposition:

“Democrat Platform 2020: Reparations, Abortion at 39 weeks, infanticide, pack the Supreme Court, Abolish the Electoral College, let 16 year olds vote, gun takeover, free healthcare to illegals, ocare for citizens with mandates, and open borders!”

Even avowed Never Trumpers might turn away from Democrats and toward Trump. In The Bulwark, Sarah Longwell admitted:

“if Never-Trump type Republicans want a candidate whose policies broadly align with their own preferences, they have one. His name is Donald J. Trump.”

There is an intense civil war within the Democrat Party, spearheaded by freshmen congresswomen hell-bent on a canvas-cleansing revolution employing scorched-earth polemics to create a progressive paradise in America. Americans do not want that and will not vote for that outcome.

Trump Hasn’t Kept Any of His Promises

Raging at reality, Coulter churlishly screams, “Trump hasn’t kept any of his promises.”

Huh?

Trump is winning by every economic indicator!

Rep. Buddy Carter (R-GA) provided a brief list of Trump’s accomplishments.

Charlie Kirk summarized some of Trump’s key kept promises (video here):

Immigration is All that Matters!

Whenever a prominent Democrat (e.g., Al Gore, John Kerry, Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, Joe Biden) evinces interest in building a wall or controlling immigration, Coulter believes them – but she doesn’t believe Trump!

Since Trump’s inauguration, Coulter has said it would have been better if any of those other Democrat candidates had become president because, then we might have a wall. In each instance, they said something she agreed with on immigration – as if any one of them would have built a wall!

No sane person believes that to be the case.

Coulter is living in an alternative reality giving Twilight Zone commentary.

Coulter claims that demography is destiny. It is not. As Erick Erickson noted,

“hispanic and black voters tend to support traditional marriage and cultural conservatism and be more religious than the rich white people making up the Democrat coalition with them.”

Erickson added:

“As cancel culture and wokeness have picked up speed and girls are suddenly fighting for their own bathrooms instead of having to let boys in or let boys into girls sports, more and more data is showing plunging rates of support for leftwing social engineering among younger voters – the post-millennial voters.”

People from every imaginable demographic are benefiting from Trump’s foreign, domestic, and economic policies – and they will reward Trump with their votes!

Trump’s Enemies!

All this in the face of astonishing opposition which would have crushed anyone but Donald Trump.

American Thinker offered its list of Trump’s enemies:

  1. The Democratic Party.
  2. The Mexican and Central American Governments.
  3. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
  4. The Wall Street Journal.
  5. The Leftist News Media.
  6. Hollywood.
  7. The Deep State.
  8. RINOS.
  9. Unelected Leftist Democrat Judges.
  10. George Soros and His Open Society Foundation.
  11. Left-Wing Think-Tanks and Academia.
  12. The Lawyers Guild. 
  13. The United Nations. 
  14. The pope.
  15. Assorted U.S. Industries.
  16. The Russian and Chinese Governments.
  17. Jihadis.
  18. Labor Unions.
  19. The Mexican Crime Cartels.
  20. The Reconquista Movement.
  21. The Illegal Aliens.

One could arguably add Coulter’s name to this list (as well as the GOP establishment even today).

Given the insidious forces arrayed against him, Trump’s tremendous accomplishments are that much more breathtaking! (People of faith might suspect that God has had a hand in this – and they would be right.)

Coulter is 100% Wrong on the 2020 Election

If anything …

  • America’s prestige and power have been greatly enhanced
  • America has experienced the longest economic expansion on record under Trump’s watch.
  • Trump’s economic, judicial, and foreign policies have all been vindicated.
  • Trump’s political base has greatly expanded.
  • The Democrats’ base has significantly contracted.
  • Moderate Democrats will either stay home or vote for Trump. (#walkaway)
  • The fake news media is dying.
  • The deep state is being ever more exposed for what it is on a daily basis.
  • Christians, pro-lifers, and constitutionalists who once doubted Trump’s genuineness and commitment to their issues have had all of their doubts removed.

Coulter’s Idée Fixe

Coulter suffers from an idée fixe. For the past five years, it has been her vehement contention that immigration – and only immigration – matters. (Prior to that, for a dozen years, she claimed that terrorism – and only terrorism – mattered.)

Coulter repeatedly, ad nauseam, claims that every other problem will be solved by controlling immigration. Well, not really.

Trump has consistently proven Coulter wrong. Trump has shaken up the 3D-chessboard in a new realignment of America First priorities, exposing opponents of America First as enemies of America.

Trump has blown up political correctness and infuriated snowflakes, making it far easier for regular Americans to think more clearly and speak more freely.

Coulter’s obsession with immigration is her panic over the prospect that Democrats will have total power forever in America.

But Trump has routed the Left. They are in panic. They are desperate. They are doing everything they can to stop Trump. (And they will fail and America will succeed.)

The Left failed in 2016. The Russia Hoax and Spygate failed. Their continued Resistance continues to fail. And the American People now know the truth. The truth will set America free.

The more the Left lurches leftward, the fewer Americans will heed their siren call.

Trump can more than handle any Democrat nominee in any debate. Even with the fake news media and establishment elites against him. Even with Coulter, a #TDS-addled #NeverTrumper constantly on the attack.

A #Trump2020Landslide is just around the corner.

@AnnCoulter and @KTHopkins – Alt-Right BFFs

Ann Coulter has long been called America’s Katie Hopkins and Katie Hopkins has likewise been regarded as the British Ann Coulter. Why? They hold extremelhy similar views and confrontational styles. They frequently retweet and support one another.

Until their infamous meeting at Politicon, some jokingly pondered whether they were the same person.

Katie Hopkins – British Ann Coulter (Alt-Right)

Like Coulter, Hopkins expresses racist views and also regards herself as a courageous heroine.

Here are a few lowlights from Katie Hopkins (whose ideas are highly congruent with those of Ann Coulter):

  • Tweet: “Dear black people. If your lives matter why do you stab and shoot each other so much”
  • “I hear cries that he is a blithering idiot. I have often been called a deranged fool. But if this were true you could ignore me, ignore us, imaging the two of us shouting naked at the rain. It’s because we articulate sentiments repressed by the politically correct consensus that we have a voice”.
  • “I asked fair questions and I think it’s important that someone has the balls to speak out.”
  • Tweet: “Little sweaty jocks, sending us Ebola bombs in the form of sweaty Glaswegians just isn’t cricket. Scottish NHS sucks.”
  • Column (4/17/15): Hopkins compared migrants to “cockroaches” and “feral humans” who are “spreading like the norovirus.”

Like Coulter, Hopkins engages in fat shaming:

“Would I employ you if you were obese? No I would not. You would give the wrong impression to the clients of my business. I need people to look energetic, professional and efficient. If you are obese you look lazy. To call yourself ‘plus size’ is just a euphemism for being fat. Life is much easier when you’re thinner. Big is not beautiful, of course a job comes down to how you look.”

Like Coulter, Hopkins is misogynistic:

“I think women are really vicious in the work place, they’re really jealous, really competitive. Women are emotional, they cry in toilets. The sisterhood only extends as far as the kitchen door. Men talk in logic and rational terms, they don’t squark and make a noise.”

Like Coulter, Hopkins hates feminism:

“Women don’t want equal treatment, they couldn’t handle it if they got it. It’s a tough world out there. What a lot of women are actually looking for is special treatment. What women need to realise is that they have to toughen up.”

Like Coulter, Hopkins is obsessed with white genocide in South Africa (but not the genocide of other races or, even, of Christians in the Middle East):

“My kind are being slaughtered. Your kind are theiving farms and failing. Your kind turned the breadbasket of Africa into a barren wasteland, less fertile than @Julius_S_Malema

Hopkins called for a “Final Solution for Muslims,” not dissimilar to Coulter’s two-decade-long jihad against Islam (remember, Coulter wanted to kill all of them!):

“Yeah, though Hopkins started off as a conservative and, over a relatively short space of time, became a fascist. She’s called for a ‘Final Solution’ for Muslims (that’s how she lost her radio job) and described migrants as ‘cockroaches’.” [[Coulter has frequently called immigrants “cockroaches.”]]

Like Coulter, Hopkins is a provocateur:

“Provocation for provocation’s sake. No wit. No humor. No intelligence. So yes, like Ann Counter without the LBD.”

Naturally, the Left despises these two individuals just as they despise the entirety of the Alt-Right. (However, the Left often lumps in mainstream conservatives with the Alt-Right, failing to distinguish between the two.)

Joker: Ann Coulter Unplugged provides an in-depth, detailed analysis of Coulter’s own Alt-Right views.

Meet @AnnCoulter, Sociopath

Erstwhile conservative icon Ann Coulter can be charming and engaging, yet her inner sociopath often erupts in Twitter tirades, employment of elimination rhetoric, attacks on the recently deceased and bereaved, and vilification of whole swaths of humanity.

Yes, Ann Coulter can be – and often is – cruel!

Degrees of Sociopathy and Psychopathy

There is often a correlation between narcissism and sociopathy and/or psychopathy.

Coulter registers at the high end of the Sociopath Scale and is probably mid-range on the Psychopath Scale.

I have never seen Ann express or exhibit guilt over hurting people, whether personally or professionally. Indeed, she takes delight in provoking people, enjoys employing elimination rhetoric, and loves attacking the recently dead and grieving.

Ann experiences no guilt over anything and exhibits no shame in attacking and wounding others. But she does experience shame when it comes to herself. She hates criticism of herself, hates being viewed as a liar, racist, or fool. She feels shame when she fails to measure up to her various self-identities, such as beauty, brains, and balls. She feels shame when her jokes fall flat, her witticisms are proven witless, and her credentials are credibly challenged.

In other words, any shame Ann feels is because of how people view her as opposed to how she treats others. Her shame in inward-oriented, not outward-directed. The world could end tomorrow and she would be fine with that as long as the world loved her.

Twenty years ago, Ann boasted that she was obsessed with biographies of serial killers (“studies of serial killers”), saying, “I actually am sort of interested in it.”[1] Would she, herself, kill anyone? I doubt that. Does she take pleasure in the death of other people? Quite often. Did she, as a child, exhibit cruelty toward animals or insects? I don’t know. But, throughout her career as a journalist, she has exhibited cruelty toward her fellow human beings.[2]

Was Ann Coulter raped? Perhaps in college? (That could certainly be a causal factor.)

If so, that would explain her three-decade-long enmity toward feminism and ire over rape hoaxes as well as her zeal in advocating for and owning guns. As she emotionally vented on MSNBC, “Men’s hands are lethal weapons. … Every male I walk past, every male I walk past, I look at him knowing with his bare hands he could kill me, and I can do nothing. … But I have no option. I can’t kill somebody with my bare hands.”[3] (It is noteworthy that she was off-the-clock for that segment; she stayed longer to express her views, without being paid for her time.)

It might also explain her repeated claims of being raped not just as political allegory but, perhaps, as a means of subconsciously admitting to actual rape.

It might also explain her desire for rough sex (in which she wins or takes revenge). The Internet is populated with images of Ann as a dominatrix (created by fans and foes alike).

A psychologist clarified this for me (emphasis added): “Personally, she’s functional and most likely doesn’t kill people and animals by some driving need to do so, but her ideation probably veers in those directions. … Think fatal attraction material without the actions. … One can o learn to hide it if they aren’t committing violent acts. Many people who are sociopaths or psychopaths are very successful in life, but they aren’t serial killers or criminals, but they think like one. They restrain their darker impulses, however.”[4]

While Coulter is certainly not on the violent/homicidal end of the Psychopath Scale, she is certainly well positioned mid-range on that scale.

Simply put, she enjoys hurting people. Her words wound. They are calculated to do so with maximum effect. She wants her foes to be sputtering in rage.  Coulter is certainly a narcissist with a strong sociopathic streak and psychopathic tendencies.

There is an interconnectedness among narcissism, sociopathy, and psychopathy. The following chart compares and differentiates among them.

Another important aspect I’ve discovered is this:

Guilt is relational; shame is image-based, identity-based.

We see throughout Coulter’s life that she fails to express or exhibit guilt over her wrong behavior toward others. Guilt is utterly absent. But she does feel shame – shame over public exposure of her behavior and shame related to credible challenges to her own, deep-seated, self-identities.

The Clinton Affair

The 20th anniversary of Bill Clinton’s impeachment generated a slew of documentaries, some of which featured Coulter. Among them, Scandalous (FNC) and Truth and Lies: Monica and Bill (ABC).

Naturally, Coulter considered ABC’s to be the best of many such documentaries, primarily because she was heavily featured in it with close to a dozen segments featuring her.

Notable in ABC’s documentary were the number of Coulter soundbites in which she laughed as she was talking about the various ways in which Clinton harmed his female victims. I was reminded of some of Coulter’s appearances on MSNBC in early 1997 when she would gleefully recite from memory various portions of Paula Jones’ legal brief against Clinton, laughing at the accusations against Clinton – not caring that a real human being had experienced such pain and anguish.

 

Quadriplegic Lady or Dead Dog?

Sociopathy could have developed as early as infanthood when Ann was in an incubator for several weeks. Sociopaths have little to no empathy, but they can learn to fake empathy and thereby manipulate other people.

The real Ann Coulter was on display during a 2015 radio interview[5] which demonstrated, like Animal Farm, that some people are more equal than others and that Ann is more equal than everyone else.

At the beginning of the interview, Ann was told the heartbreaking story of an innocent woman who was struck during a high-speed car chase, becoming a quadriplegic. Utter silence from Ann. Shortly thereafter, she made jokes about car chases and joked about a suicide.

Then Ann was told about a tragedy concerning a dog. She asked, “What happened to the dog?” Hearing that he died (burned to death on live television), she replied in shock, “Awww!”

Moments later, Ann said, “I feel sorry for the quadriplegic lady, too. I don’t want you to think I’m only worried about the dog [laughs]. That was just kind of a surprise ending.”

Coulter is so intellectually agile that she immediately recognized the disparity in her reactions to two very similar tragedies and she knew the audience would take note at well. So, she instantly went into justification mode, trying to put out the flame before it became a raging fire.

Note that Coulter is more concerned with what people think of her than she is about the tragedies which have befallen others.

That segment of that interview strongly reinforced my conclusions that, for Ann, most people are worthless (worthless = worth less than Ann). To her, they are invisibles. She cared far more about the deceased dog than about the quadriplegic lady – but doesn’t want us to know that.

@AnnCoulter – WASP Queen

WASP Identity

Coulter, the high priestess of the Alt-Right, is obsessed with race and looks.

She boasts that she is a looksist. Why? Her family roots go back to America’s founding; they were among the first settlers.

Yes, this is personal for Coulter. Her maternal roots are primarily Anglo-Saxon.

Coulter’s self-identity as a “settler” (as if she herself were the “settler” who “created” America) drives her views on race, culture, citizenship, immigration, and the like. Coulter’s preeminent descriptor for “settler” is “WASP.” White Anglo-Saxon Protestant.

WASP defines Coulter and Coulter’s idyllic America. Coulter wrote: “In fact, the natural state of the world is Darfur. The freakish aberration is America and the rest of the Anglo-Saxon world.”

Not All WASPs are Equal

For a decade or more, Coulter has had a hate-on for the Bush family. I vividly remember that, during one CPAC speech, Coulter demanded, “No more Bushes or Doles.”

But the Bush family are just as much Settlers and WASPs as Coulter.

Apparently not all WASPs are equal. Indeed, the Bush family is perhaps even more WASP than the Coulter clan.

American-born Samuel Bush (1647-1733) was the son of Englishman John Bush III (1593-1670). The Bushes, like the Coulters, are of English and German stock.

Does Bush’s patriarchal lineage going back to 1647 trump Coulter’s matriarchal lineage going back to sometime after 1632?

In any event, the Bush family has a far more extensive collection of American ancestors with far more notable and illustrious members than the Coulter clan.

But Coulter snobbishly looks down on the Bushes who are far more distinguished WASPs than the Coulters.

What qualifies the Coulter clan more than the Bush family to determine America’s fate and future given that they are equally settlers and WASPs by pedigree?

Listen to the sage words of America’s 43rd president. In a heartfelt tribute to his father, President George W. Bush said, “He valued character more than pedigree.”

Citizenship

Most of America’s Founders were WASPs. Therefore, to Coulter, being a WASP is part of what it means to be an American. Thus, she loosely correlates citizenship with WASPiness.

Coulter’s jaundiced view of American citizenship was on full display in one 2015 column[1] in which she again dismissed the terrorist threat in America[2] and confused the immigration issue by conflating various groups as if they were identical.

Coulter wrote (emphasis added): “And, once again, the weekend came and went without anyone in America being killed by ISIS, but a lot of people being killed by immigrants – legal, illegal, second generation and anchor babies.” Coulter later added, “Some of these crimes were committed by legal residents – even ‘citizens.’”

In addressing crime by immigrants, Coulter lumps everyone in together: immigrants (illegal, legal, second generation, anchor babies) and “citizens” (in air quotes, so that we might know she regards them as not really citizens).

Coulter even regarded the then-current governor of South Carolina, Nikki Haley, as an air-quote citizen.

Coulter smeared Gov. Nikki Haley (R-SC) – a native-born American citizen – for having immigrant parents, suggesting she was somehow less than a real American. Why? Because this successful governor and, later, U.S. ambassador to the U.N. – who is a native South Carolinian to boot – was from the wrong race! Haley’s family hails from India, not England.

Remember, Coulter calls many native-born Americans “immigrants,” not citizens.

The very nature of citizenship eludes many liberals and some conservatives, particularly Coulter. As noted by the Ashbrook Center (emphasis added):

But in fact, of course, only Americans are American citizens. Our revolution began with a universal claim about human equality, but it culminated necessarily in the establishment of a particular nation. ‘We the People of the United States’ are distinct from the other peoples of the world not by birth, race, or religion, but by the deliberate act of establishing ourselves as a different people. By the act of consent, the people of the United States committed themselves to each other, as distinct from all the others who live outside the bond if citizenship.

An idea – liberty and equality – gave birth to America.

Coulter’s Race-Based Immigration Plan

Coulter has a very narrow, unidimensional perspective, shallow and superficial – literally skin deep. Don’t take my word for it. Consider Coulter’s very own criteria for determining whom to let into America.

Coulter’s plan is distinctly racial: “I want to be 100% in charge of all of our immigration. I can decide before breakfast every morning. I just need a picture, age, country of origin – that’s about it.”[3]

Coulter added, “I’m a looksist and I like ‘em tall. Those are the two primary factors. And, obviously, English-speaking.” Moreover, her diversity would extend to, well, “I want more British and Dutch, but I would say a lot more British and less Dutch.”

And, if you don’t think race is Coulter’s primary criterion,[4] consider these words: “Send me a million people who want to come to America, and I will decide them all before breakfast. I can pretty much decide on looks; it would save a lot of money.”[5]

Dennis Prager (who is Jewish) offered insight into Ronald Reagan’s vision of America – a vision diametrically opposed to that of Ann Coulter. Prager wrote:

Matthew’s Gospel speaks of a city on a hill, an image that captured the imagination of Ronald Reagan: “I’ve spoken of the shining city all my political life, but I don’t know if I ever quite communicated what I saw when I said it. But in my mind, it was a tall proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, wind-swept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace, a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here.”

Quite a different outlook from that of Coulter.

WASP = White Anglo-Saxon Protestant

Coulter speaks of WASP culture in almost exclusively racial terms, emphasizing the first word and giving lip service to the last.

Myron Magnet noted “The Plymouth Pilgrims were only the first of many who came to the New World to escape religious persecution. … because they were accustomed to reading the Bible and feeling free to judge its meaning for themselves – to believing, that is, that they had a direct relation to God and his word independent of any worldly institution or authority – they also brought a deeply rooted culture of individualism and personal responsibility. For them, the individual and his conscience were of preeminent importance.”

Moreover, religious revivals (called “Great Awakenings”) animated the public square and reconstituted America. Kevin D. Williamson observed, “The American proposition is a theological proposition: ‘that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights.’”

But Coulter gives short shrift to the spiritual (Christian) origins of America.[6]

Gerson emphasized the importance Christianity had in America’s founding and maturation. Gerson explains, “The First Great Awakening, led by George Whitfield in the 1730s, promoted the doctrines of individual conscience and liberty that added momentum to the American Revolution, sending many traditional conservatives fleeing for Canada.”[7]

Gerson added, “The Second Great Awakening, which flamed a century later, created the moral constituency for abolition, and the political constituency for Lincoln’s election.”[8]

Gerson continued, “The Third Great Awakening, at the end of the nineteenth century and the beginning of the twentieth, led to a Social Gospel that confronted the excesses of the industrial revolution with soup kitchens, homes for unwed mothers, and progressive laws.”[9]
