Meet Ann Coulter’s Savior

For Coulter, salvation is always political, not spiritual; temporal, not eternal. For Coulter, pursuing Paradise on earth is preferential to the heavenly one. This has been true for nearly two decades.

Coulter's Savior

Beginning with the 2000 election cycle,[1] Coulter has consistently attacked Christians and pro-lifers, demonized the opponents of her chosen candidates, and sought to subvert the political process to achieve victory.

Apocalypse Now

Coulter loves hyperbole and frequently employs apocalyptic terms. In 2014, she said, “It seems like we’re in the middle of the Democrats’ Thousand Year Reich.”[2]

Keeping with the theme, Coulter asserts, “America is the most consequential nation on Earth … If America falls, it will be a thousand years of darkness for the entire planet.” A thousand years?

Regarding our near future, Coulter argues, “We are talking about the future not only of America but the last genuinely Christian country on earth, and, thus, the world. If we lose America, it is lights out for the entire world for a thousand years!”[3]

Sounds like the future of the planet rests in America’s (not God’s) hands.

Just last week, Coulter chimed in again with her apocalyptic millennial prophesy:

“If America is gone, it’s not just lights out for Americans, it’s lights out for the rest of the world. … When this country is gone, who is going to save these other countries from war lords, from tsunamis, from, from Ebola, from, from, from the Nazis?”[4]

America’s Christian Roots

Surprisingly, in the midst of her Cassandra-like oracle, Coulter said, “This is a powerful Christian country. I would say it is the only genuinely Christian country … the only country with any power that is a genuinely shot through with Christianity from its very founding country on earth.”

America, as Coulter observed, “was not only founded by Christians, it was founded by Protestants.” She added, “The underlying, animating philosophy to this country and to our founding is a Christian worldview.”

Coulter is good at expounding upon America’s Christian heritage[5] but fails to grasp that what America needs most is not a political realignment but a spiritual revival to reclaim America’s roots.[6]

Salvation cannot come by means of political saviors but only through a heartfelt appeal to the Savior of the world.

Yet, Coulter ignores the moral morass and cultural decay prevalent in so much of America and seeks a political, as opposed to moral, solution, saying,

“It is like the fall of Rome but, thank God, and I am not using the Lord’s name in vain, I mean that absolutely literally, thank God for raising up Donald Trump and giving us a chance to save the country.”[7]

Coulter is looking to the wrong savior!

Coulter’s Savior

Trumpeting Trump,[8] Coulter warns, “I think any Republican – other than Trump – would be a disaster [for America].”[9]

Coulter reminisced, “Whoever thought that Donald Trump would be America’s savior?”[10] And, again, “If he ran, I had no idea he would be America’s Savior. … our next president, who’s going to save America.”[11]

Donald Trump is Coulter’s current Savior[12] – and America’s, too. So says Ann, who calls Trump, “my hero, our Savior, the man who’s going to save my world.”[13] (Sorry, Ann, but Jesus is the Savior of my world – and yours!)

Calling Trump, “the greatest candidate for president ever”[14] and “the candidate I’ve been dreaming of,”[15] Coulter astonishingly said, “I totally would [marry Trump if he were single].”[16]

Asked to describe her actual relationship with Trump, Coulter replied, “Blind worship.”

Blind worship? Sounds like a religious experience to me. Coulter amplified her answer, “It’s a little like the North Korean people with their dear, dear leader.” (Trump is really like a crazy, socialist tyrant?)

Ensuring that we all get the spiritual undertone of her remarks, Coulter employs biblical imagery. She introduced Trump at one of his rallies, saying,

“And now I think it’s like Joseph in the Bible. He had to be sold into slavery, imprisoned, betrayed so that eventually he could save the Jews. Maybe Mitt Romney had to lose. And maybe we had to give Republicans one more chance in 2014. And maybe Mitch McConnell and John Boehner had to betray us one more time to pave the way for President Donald Trump. God hasn’t given up on America yet.”[17]

On another occasion, Coulter compared Trump to yet another biblical hero: “and then it all works out and David is the assistant to the king and saves all the Jews.”[18]

Vote Republican! … or Else

Coulter sees Republicans (not necessarily conservatives) as America’s savior.

For many years now, Coulter has insisted that we vote Republican, regardless of either the character or conservative credentials of the candidate. History has proven her wrong. Despite historic gains,[19] Republicans have caved in to the Obama/leftist agenda because far too few Republicans are actually conservative.

Why would that be? In part, because Coulter continually promotes RINOs (even when they are not running!)[20] and attacks true conservatives.[21] Then she is chagrined when RINOs act like RINOs.[22]

Coulter now complains that we should not seek out conservatives because they haven’t done anything!

“Forget conservative. What have the conservatives done for you? What did conservative George Bush do? He nearly destroyed the Party and the country in one swell foop. … He wiped out the Republican Party in the House and the Senate. … How about Mitch McConnell and John Boehner?”[23]

The people Coulter complains about are the ones she supported! Coulter practically worshiped Bush throughout most of his presidency. Now – after the facthe’s the problem? Coulter defended McConnell at every turn, even as conservatives discounted his alleged conservative credentials. (Coulter was wrong!)

Confronted with the claim that they weren’t conservative, Coulter exclaimed, “They’re Republicans! You have to vote for somebody!”

Wow! She still doesn’t get it. Republicans are not necessarily conservatives. Coulter has consistently supported non-conservative Republicans, yet complains when they fail to legislate or govern according to conservative principles.

Blinded by her own unique paradigm, Coulter is alone in her worldview, exclaiming, “In fact, my ideal ticket is Trump-Romney. That’s what I’m really hoping for. That’s the dynamite combo.”[24] (Two RINOs to restore America’s Christian conservative roots?)

Coulter, the Closet Christian

For almost twenty years, Coulter has boasted of being a Christian. She claimed, “I’m a Christian and everything comes from being a Christian,”[25] adding that “Christianity fuels all of my books.”

Why does Christianity fuel all of her books? “because you are called upon to behave in a certain way as a Christian and that is to fight lies, injustice, cruelty, hypocrisy, that fuels everything.” (One could argue that she has been fighting against herself all of these years!)

Then why has Coulter repeatedly vilified[26] Christian missionaries[27] over a period of years[28] and repeatedly attacked[29] pro-lifers[30]for years.[31]

Coulter even refuses to help Christians being martyred[32] in a horrific genocide overseas! For Coulter, political considerations always outweigh the moral and spiritual implications of any situation. Ann Coulter is about as Christian as Barack Obama.[33]

Yet, Coulter insists, “Christianity fuels everything I write”[34] and claims, “I’m an extraordinarily good Christian.”[35]

Just yesterday, Coulter asserted, “You know I’m a big Christian.”[36]

Many Christians live fearfully in the closet, threatened by persecution, torture, and death. Coulter claims to be a Christian. If only her words and actions would come out of the closet and prove her claims!
