Coulter’s Cognitive Dissonance

Is the often brilliant Ann Coulter scatterbrained? One could arguably say so.

Indeed, for over two decades, Coulter has suffered from cognitive dissonance and the negative consequences of addictive thinking.[1]

In Orwellian terms, Coulter suffers from doublethink – believing two diametrically opposite things at the very same time.[2]

Coulter’s column on 9/15/21 is emblematic of this strange phenomenon.[3]

In it, Coulter simultaneously condemns the dismantling of Confederate “antiquities,” which she calls part of her history, while taking pride in her Presbyterian ancestors who were abolitionists fighting for the Union against slavery.[4] Cognitive dissonance.

Her essay title: Gray Lives Matter.

Gray = Confederate, not Union.[5]

Coulter has – for decades – defended the Confederacy while simultaneously extolling her heroic Union ancestors.[6]

Coulter has insisted that everyone should listen to her yet has admitted that she’s bad at making predictions. Indeed, she has come to loathe every presidential candidate she endorsed or campaigned for.[7]

Coulter was fiercely for the war on terror before she was against it.[8]

Coulter championed tax cuts for decades but now is in favor of a (Socialist) wealth tax.[9]

Once ardently pro-life, Coulter abandoned the pro-life movement for personal and political purposes.[10]
