Ann Coulter Still Blind; Can’t See Trump’s Wall!

Polemicist Ann Coulter again trashed Donald Trump, falsely claiming that he never built a wall.

Coulter appeared on Andrew Sullivan’s Dishcast and lied:

“I grew up in New Canaan and I’ve been reading Page Six since I was a little kid. I was well familiar with what a narcissistic, ridiculous, tacky, vulgar, arriviste this guy was. That I knew about. The one thing I underestimated, in fact, did not see at all is, I had no idea how abjectly stupid the man is. In my defense, a lot of journalists would ask me during 2016, when I was promoting In Trump We Trust, they’d say, ‘Oh he’s not really going to build the wall’ and I’d laugh at them. I’d laugh and say, ‘No the one thing he’s got to do is build the wall. I just couldn’t imagine anyone could be so stupid to run on one thing.”

Coulter’s historical revisionism claims Trump ran on only one thing (the wall) and ignores everything else he ran on which were all components of America First. Trump accomplished an enormous amount of his promised MAGA agenda, yet Coulter bashes Trump and not Biden, who is destroying America every hour of every day.

Why?

Ann Coulter: “Let Them All Die!”

Instead of saying, “Let them eat cake,” polemicist Ann Coulter has effectively said, “Let them be killed, tortured, and raped.”

The fall of Kabul over the weekend is obscenely worse than the fall of Saigon in 1975, yet Coulter lauds Biden’s botched pullout from Afghanistan and berates Trump for not doing the same.

Does the horrific chaos not intrude upon Coulter’s conscience or touch her heart?

What transpired over the weekend is grotesque! And the worst is yet to come.

But, according to Baghdad Babs, “everything is going swimmingly in Afghanistan.”

Coulter tweeted:

“Once Osama was killed, the American people wanted us out. President Obama wanted us out. Trump promised to get us out … But generals (the WORST) and military contractors wanted us to stay forever, so we did.” 8/15/21

Coulter had to attack Trump, not realizing the utter catastrophic nature of Biden’s debacle.

Tens of thousands of AMERICANS are trapped in Afghanistan. Hundreds of ISIS terrorists have been released from prison. The Taliban has not only seized the nation, but taken our Blackhawk helicopters and sophisticated American weaponry.

And they are chanting, “Death to America.”

But Coulter feels compelled to celebrate as she feels safe in her isolationist cocoon.

Coulter also tweeted:

“We didn’t lose! We won the war in about 3 weeks, hung around for another decade to get Osama, and then stayed for another 10 years FOR NO NATIONAL SECURITY PURPOSE WHATSOEVER. (But military contractors got rich and generals got more ribbons!)” 8/15/21

Here’s one very pertinent response highlighting Coulter’s failure to grasp foreign policy and its implications for America First:

“In 20 years we had few terrorist attacks on our turf. And zero under Trump once he obliterated ISIS. Now you’re gonna have China and Russia supporting the Taliban. But I’m sure this can only be good for us, especially now that we have a open border.”

A small American troop presence in Afghanistan kept America safer.

Another respondent made this point:

“The usual Ann Coulter schtick: maintaining comedic effect at the expense of reflective thought. This President Trump-hater has lost the entire point of her boy, Joe Biden’s, disgrace in Afghanistan. “America risks being seen as harmless as an enemy, and treacherous as a friend.”

Exactly right! Trump kept America safe and even brokered numerous Middle East peace deals, which Coulter despised. Why? Did she hate the name: The Abraham Accords? Trump was a peace and prosperity president. Biden is a chaos president, and Coulter prefers Biden!

Quadrupling down, Coulter tweeted:

“How about: Thank you, President Biden for fulfilling one of Trump’s many broken promises by FINALLY ending the pointless war in Afghanistan.” 8/15/21

This was a humiliating travesty for America, a strategic blunder, and will be a moral stain on America for generations. Who will trust us now?

Who will trust Ann Coulter now?

Posting a video of hordes of Afghans striving to escape Afghanistan (many would cling to the planes and fall to their deaths), Coulter commented:

“Isn’t this the opening scene in “Camp of the Saints”?” 8/16/21

Coulter – gloating in chaos and death!

In response to Sen. Tim Cotton’s call to “destroy every Taliban fighter” near Kabul (perfectly feasible since they were all together in one location), Coulter riposted:

“Why not “every bad person in the whole wide world”?” 8/16/21

Making light of the chaos and dramatically-amplified threat to America, Coulter asserted that Tropical Storm Fred is more important:

“This is of far more importance than anything happening in Afghanistan.” 8/16/21

The Taliban NOW is more dangerous than they were THEN! They have routed America and have weaponry beyond what they could have ever imagined. Afghanistan will become a magnet for every jihadist who wants to destroy America and Western Civilization!

Coulter also tweeted:

“Every minute we were in Afghanistan after killing Osama bin Laden in 2011 was a betrayal of America.” 8/16/21

One person stated the obvious:

“We’re still in Japan and Germany 75 years later.”

We also still have troops in South Korea and other strategic places around the world – all with good results.

Now, the terrorists have a place to call home as they make their plans to attack us here in America. Brilliant, Ann.

But reality still escapes Coulter’s notice. She tweeted:

“The only thing I want to hear the president address is the ongoing crisis at our border, Covid pouring in and the unprecedented murder rampage in America. The idea that Americans on on tenterhooks about “WHITHER AFGHANISTAN” is absurd.” 8/16/21

Ann loves using the word “tenterhooks” when she is upset.

Has Coulter forgotten? There are still thousands of Americans in danger in Afghanistan. Yes, of course we should care. Feckless Biden warns them to exercise caution; Trump would be doing something constructive.

Coulter, again, sidestepped the historic catastrophe still unfolding in Afghanistan by attacking Republicans for wanting to launch an investigation into this colossal blunder of epic proportions. Coulter tweeted:

“How about an investigation of his border strategy? (There’s something mentally wrong with elected Republicans.)” 8/16/21

For Coulter, the only thing that matters is the border and immigration. Isn’t it funny, Trump came up with many great solutions (which Biden undid), yet Coulter keeps attacking Trump and not Biden.

Coulter is aghast that Trump would seek to keep America’s commitment to America-loving Afghan interpreters who faced death to help America. Coulter tweeted:

“Wow. Will THIS finally wake up the few remaining Trump loyalists? Does he have to fly them here himself? Send care packages to the border?” 8/17/21

I guess, now, Ann doesn’t believe in keeping promises?

Exploding is anger at the suggestion that a properly planned and carried out exit strategy would have been preferable to what Biden did, Coulter shouted:

“OH MY GOSH! THE TALIBAN COULD HAVE BEEN HELD OFF FOR ANOTHER TWO WEEKS!” 8/17/21

What prompted Coulter’s ire? This tweet from a friend of hers:

“He abandoned the airbase, had no contingency plan to get Americans out, ignored intelligence agencies, prevented contractors from helping the Afghan airforce, and cut off the Afghan military from intelligence or support.”

Exhibiting total ignorance of the terror threat posed by Taliban and ISIS, Coulter absurdly tweeted:

“They’re happy the way things are. Why can’t we leave them alone? 99% of Afghans support sharia as official law.” 8/18/21

Of course, with armed Taliban leaders posing the question, the people replied logically, though not necessarily accurately.

For over a decade, Coulter has dismissed terrorist threats (focusing exclusively on immigration). Coulter asked, “Why can’t we leave them alone?” Because they won’t leave us alone!

Remember, they continue to chant, “Death to America!”

Nevertheless, Coulter remains utterly obsessed with Trump, tweeting:

“It’s hilarious how Trump has aggressively turned against all the issues that got him elected president.” 8/18/21

Coulter can’t stop herself!

Coulter has proven to be the Left’s secret weapon against America.

Astonishingly, Coulter posted her weekly column several hours early and it was devoted to praising Biden for his betrayal of Afghanistan. Here are a few excerpts:

“President Biden ended the war in Afghanistan earlier this week, fulfilling the broken promises of the last three presidents, whereupon both the liberal and conservative media rose up as one to shout: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Sorry, Ann, but Biden did not “end” the war. He capitulated. The enemy is still at war with us! And, now, they are better armed!

“Now Biden has done it. It’s our country’s good fortune that our president is too senile to be outmaneuvered by the generals as Bush, Obama and Trump were.”

Who is senile: Biden or Coulter?

“At this rate, maybe he’ll build the wall.”

Magical thinking does not work, Ann.

“On Monday, Biden gave the best presidential address in recent memory — a full-throated, America-First statement of our interests. ‘I want to remind everyone,’ he began, ‘how we got here and what America’s interests are in Afghanistan.'”

In her diatribe against Trump and all those who condemn the chaos sparked by Biden’s reckless and self-serving action, Coulter completely ignores that very real chaos which will continue, dismisses the plight of Afghan interpreters (and Christians), and has not a single word to say about the multitude of AMERICANS trapped in Afghanistan.

How can you be America First if you willingly jeopardize the lives of American citizens?

.@AnnCoulter Does It Again: Total #TDS – Lies Against Trump

Propagandist Ann Coulter is at it again. Five months after the 2020 election and two months after Biden’s inauguration, Coulter is still lying about Trump, seemingly in an effort to inflict as much damage as possible and destroy any chance of him remaining the de facto leader of the GOP and, more importantly, of the MAGA movement.

Coulter keeps telling the exact same liesover and over and over again – 1) as if they were true and 2) to convince us that they are true. But mere repetition absent proof will never convince any American who voted for him.

Her arguments are neither factual nor rational!

Coulter’s most recent iterations from March 2021:

“Here’s a tip, Democrats: Trump was all talk, no action.” (3/9/21)

But Trump did act!

Trump’s accomplishments are indisputable. Unparalleled peace and prosperity. No new wars. Bringing troops home. Building a wall and curtailing immigration (remain in Mexico policy). Five Nobel Peace Prize nominations. Exposing the Deep State and Fake News Media.[1]

“Even the election of Donald Trump, a ridiculous creature who became president by promising to crack down on illegal immigration and build a wall (promises he ignored), hasn’t put a dent in Washington’s enthusiasm for overwhelming the country with the third world.” (3/17/21)

There she goes again!

Trump did “crack down on illegal immigration and build a wall.”

As for her linguistic sleight of hand at the close of the above sentence, NOTHING will “put a dent in” the Deep State’s “enthusiasm for overwhelming the country with the third world.”

Ironically, Coulter rails against the Biden administration and the border crisis resulting from his policies, but she ignores this crucial fact: Biden reversed Trump’s immigration policies which were working!

Where has Ann been for the last several decades or during the entirety of the Trump administration. Trump was vigorously fighting the Deep State every single day in pursuit of his America First MAGA agenda.[2] Biden embraces the Deep State and globalism.

Americans know all this. Millions more Americans voted for Trump in 2020 than in 2016. Americans know the truth!

Ann Coulter does not.

Ann Coulter: From Jingoist to Pacifist

In the space of a few short years, Coulter turned from being a neoconservative zealot to a Fortress America fanatical isolationist and pacifist.

Her current isolationist and nativist obsession with “pointless wars” in foreign lands leads her inevitably to conclude that World War II was also a pointless war.

Coulter’s foreign policy heart lies with that of one of her mentors, Patrick Buchanan.

During the Clinton presidency, Coulter continually denounced the administration’s use of military force overseas, arguing that it was not in our national interest.

In 1997, Coulter said, “I don’t think we should be trying to go around and be the world’s Policeman because you can guess wrong. I mean, we can’t create a beautiful constitutional democracy across the world.”[1]

Bur for fully a decade following 9/11, Coulter was the fiercest armchair war hawk in America. Toward the end of the Obama presidency, Coulter reversed course, returning to her Buchananite foreign policy roots. (She could easily join the “War Is Not the Answer” crowd if it were more pro-American.)

Once a zealous moral and cultural conservative and fervently pro-life – “There’s almost no conversation I couldn’t turn into an abortion discussion.”[2]Coulter turned her back on the unborn for most of the past two decades. Instead, the political realm possessed Coulter, and, following 9/11, Coulter attacked everyone.

My first essay critical of Coulter in BrotherWatch (January 2002) began with these words:

Following the 9/11 terrorist attack, controversial “conservative” columnist Ann Coulter – best known as that “acid-tongued blonde” wearing her trademark micro mini-skirts – appeared to descend into madness. Cutting edge went over the edge. Coulter declared a two-front war against terrorists and liberals. – Right Wing Warrior Princess

Coulter’s stance on the Korean Peninsula is emblematic of her approach to geopolitics. She also hates our pro-Israel policies and would just as well jettison the War on Terror completely. (Coulter always frames terrorist threats as immigration threats,[3] having absolutely no solutions to the domestic threat posed by ISIS and ISIS-inspired terrorists currently in America.)[4]

Of course, her Fortress America paradigm blindly dismisses the very real and existential threats facing America today and in the near future posed by terrorists and tyrannical, America-hating regimes around the world.

Coulter now denounces the Reagan Doctrine’s formulation of “peace through strength” and she appears oblivious to the renaissance of peace and prosperity which Americans enjoy today – due to Trump’s emulation of Reagan’s proven policies.

Coulter’s single-minded fixation with immigration and a wall has given her a myopic perspective on reality and the world in which we live. She has tunnel vision – like a horse with blinders on – and is oblivious to anything which does not fit her own pet paradigm.

As is always the case, anyone who disagrees with her perspective and agenda is a traitor or evil – even though she herself has completely reversed many of her positions over the past two decades. (At one point or another, she could have called herself a traitor.)

Coulter went berserk over Trump’s visit to the Wailing Wall:

On the eve of Trump’s major prime time national address regarding a national crisis on our southern border, Coulter reversed her position, issuing a series of nonsensical tweets attacking President Trump.

The following chart encapsulates a few of Coulter’s transitions and key transformative periods during Coulter’s professional career as a “journalist.”

Joker: Ann Coulter Unplugged provides an in-depth, detailed analysis in this holistic exposé of how and why Coulter has become such a warped human being.

Joker addresses the physical, mental, emotional, psychological, familial, sexual, and spiritual dimensions which have shaped the Ann Coulter that we know today and it highlights both the positives and the negatives of Coulter’s life and career.

Ann’s brokenness provides an object lesson for all of us and, hopefully, this book will act as an intervention to help Ann face her deep brokenness and motivate her to seek healing and restoration.

What Ann Coulter Gets Right – and Wrong – in Resistance is Futile!

Coulter’s Resistance Is Futile has just been released. Here are a few observations.

What Coulter gets right – and wrong – in her book

What Coulter Gets Right

This quote encapsulates what is right in Coulter’s book:

“Nothing the Russians ever dreamed of could compare to what the Resistance is doing to democracy, obliterating the will of Trump voters, who wanted him to get to work on urgent problems.”

“It is nothing less than a coup.”

Trump Derangement Syndrome grows daily and hourly, exposing every segment of the Progressive movement for what it is, from politics, to academia, to Hollywood, and the – now blatantly out in the open – #FakeNewsMedia.

Other books have recently (or will soon be) released which tell the very same story.

What Coulter Gets Wrong

Coulter ludicrously contends that the Left hates Donald Trump because he is “icky” – that he is a departure from the debonair and erudite Barack Obama. This is hogwash. If Trump pursued Progressive policies, they would love him.

Far from being squeamish about “icky,” the Left embraces it. Witness Harvey Weinstein, Kathy Griffin, so many of the presenters and awardees at Hollywood events, the Ann Coulter Roast, etc. Remember Michelle Wolf at the National Correspondents Dinner? Truly icky!

Ickiness is part of the Left’s DNA. They merely use charges of ickiness to attack Trump and try to peel off some portion of Middle American support for him.

Icky does not matter to the Left. It didn’t in the 1960s and it doesn’t now. The Left was enthralled with the Clinton presidency. Even now, they want Hillary back. (Ick!)

Throughout her media career, Coulter has conflated style with substance (often preferring the former to the latter) and she continues to do so to this day.

What the Left hates about Trump is his devotion to America, his erasure of the Obama legacy, his opposition to the Progressive agenda and identity politics, and his Making America Great Again.

But the Left can’t say that, so, instead, it says, “Ick!”

Trump stands up for America, not against her. (That is what the Left considers the real “Ick!”)

RIP Nell Husbands Martin Coulter

The death of Mother devastated Ann Coulter.

Following Mother’s death, Ann published a very personal, poignant, and often political eulogy.

In her eulogy, Ann mourned the loss her of “true No. 1 fan” who “was the biggest fan of” her entire family. Mother “was a little love machine, spreading warmth and joy wherever she went.” Mother loved hugging her daughter and telling her “what a wonderful, precious daughter” Ann was.

Ann felt safe and secure in her mother’s love: “My whole life, as soon as I’d see my mother’s face I’d know I was safe, whether I was a little girl lost in a department store or a big girl with a problem, who needed her mother.”

This Mother-Daughter love was very real.

A devoted daughter, Ann took excellent care of Mother during her declining years as she battled ovarian cancer. Ann even postponed publication of her seventh book, Guilty, to tend to her mother’s needs.

Ann understandably misses Mother’s “constant, unconditional love.”

In many ways, Ann emulates Mother (often to an extreme). In other ways, Ann repudiates Mother (often in extremist ways). Today, Mother would be both proud of, and perturbed by, her daughter.

Like Mother, Like Daughter

Ann and Mother both cherished their New England and Southern roots. Coulter’s prized genealogical roots all trace through Mother: New England Puritans and Daughters of the American Revolution, coupled with a solid Southern heritage.

Mother wanted to be specifically remembered for her “contributions to the Republican Party, the New Canaan Republican Town Committee and the Daughters of the American Revolution.”

“Mother may have thought her most notable characteristic was her Republican activism,” Coulter wrote, emphasizing her “deep-seated political activism” and being “always delighted to be with people talking about politics.”

Sounds a lot like Ann.

Mother was very proud to be “a direct descendant of at least a dozen patriots who served the cause of the American Revolution.” In fact, she “traced her lineage on both sides of her family to Puritan nonconformists who came to America in 1633 seeking religious freedom on a ship led by Pastor Thomas Hooker.”

Coulter, as she typically does, takes everything to extremes. Ann is so proud of her heritage as a Daughter of the American Revolution that she regards herself as a “settler” – and a “Native American.”

Ann also regards herself – a WASP – as a true American. (Hence her nativist and xenophobic impulses.) She treasures her Puritan roots, making her a self-identified authority on all things American.

Moreover, Ann is proud of Mother’s Southern roots, praising Mother’s “fighting Kentucky spirit” and “charming Southern accent.”

Coulter lauds the Confederacy whenever she can and tweeted (8/3/16): “Southerners accounted for 38 percent of those killed in Iraq and 47 percent in Afghanistan.” She then asked Gov. Haley: “How about Nikki put their flag back up?”

In other words, Coulter contends that Southerners who died in combat in Iraq and Afghanistan were fighting for the Confederacy!

Coulter continued: “The Confederate flag won’t lead to thousands of dead and maimed Americans, as Muslim immigration does. The only danger posed by the Confederate flag is that media elites will hold the South in even greater contempt than they already do, assuming that’s possible.”

Yes, Coulter equates Southerners with Confederates and believes that our brave military members from the South are currently fighting for the Confederacy and not for America!

Thus, Coulter has become the face of the Alt-Right movement, seeking restoration of a distinctly white WASP America while, simultaneously, promoting a neo-Confederate worldview.

Unlike Mother …

Mother was generous. Mother “probably contributed hundreds of thousands of dollars to various conservative outfits over the years.” Ann, not so much.

Ann’s generosity extends to helping those who can help her.

If she can get something out of it – self-promotion, praise, paycheck, book sale, networking connection – Ann will do it. Otherwise – if it does not personally benefit her – forget it.

Mother was compassionate. Since she “was a little girl,” Ann saw that “friends, relatives and neighbors would bring their problems to Mother.” Why? Because Mother “had a rare combination of being completely moral and completely nonjudgmental at the same time” and would give “good counsel” without making others feel worse about themselves.

As for Ann, well, her entire career is based upon wounding other people. Given a choice between fact and polemic, Ann usually chooses the latter.

Mother valued human life. She was a “gentle lady” who “never had an unkind word for anyone.” In fact, “Father would always smile and say, ‘Your mother defends everyone.’”

Mother was proud of Ann for her pro-life speech presented before a Roman Catholic women’s group in New Canaan, CT, and later published in Human Life Review and various essay collections nationwide.

Now, though claiming, “I am totally pro-life,” Ann passionately attacks conservatives and Christians for pursuing a pro-life agenda.

As far back as the late 1990s, Coulter began attacking pro-lifers for purely political purposes. In reality, Coulter would have pro-lifers do nothing and let the unborn fend for themselves!

Mother was a devout Christian. Faith figured prominently in Mother’s life. She was very active in her local church and her faith was important enough to her that she faithfully turned her daughter to Presbyterianism.

In her moving eulogy, Ann emphasized Mother’s Republican activism and DAR lineage. Surprisingly, Ann missed Mother’s Christian beliefs. She utterly ignored her Mother’s faith.

Though claiming, “I’m an extraordinarily good Christian,” Ann has attacked Christians for most of the past two decades. She even attacks Christians for being godly!

Ann lovingly gave honor to Mother with her words, but in her life Coulter dishonors Mother.

Gone Astray

As I wrote last year:

I suspect that Ann never really believed in the Christian ideals and conservative principles she espoused. Indeed, she was not the “true believer” everyone believed her to be. Rather, she adopted those ideals and principles from her parents, whom she loved. Her father died in 2008; her mother in 2009. Since then, Ann’s moral and spiritual compass no longer exists. Ann is being tossed to and fro by the pragmatism of the moment and the passing whims of her heart.”

“Coulter hates conservatives, Christians, and pro-lifers for being what they are because she once believed she belonged in those categories. Now, whenever these people of principle act on their principles, she is put to shame as a charlatan. They expose Coulter for who she really is – a fraud.”

“Will Ann always be a fraud? Only God knows and only He can bring meaning and direction to her life. Unless and until Ann courageously faces the reality of who she has become and fights the good fight of faith to become the person God has called her to be, she will always be filled with hate and fear.”

“May God grant Ann repentance and transform her heart.”

Yes, Ann Hart Coulter has, indeed, lost the moorings of her parents’ presence, principles, and piety. Her heart is now turned in the wrong direction, away from God and opposed to His will. Whether or not she knows it, Ann has rejected God and His will for her life.

Instead, the “Emperor-God Trump” is her Savior. Coulter has rejected God and arrogantly placed her will above His.

Coulter recently said that with Mother’s passing, she can now say anything she wants to. She claimed, “I really am the freest person in America right now. I can say anything.”

The Easter season reminds us that we are all equal before the cross and that we must humble ourselves before the One who saves.

Obviously, humility eludes Ann. Her hubris abhors humility because 1) she rejects its efficacy and 2) she regards it as a sign of weakness.

Here’s the rub: Without humility, salvation is impossible. We must humbly come to the cross to accept God’s love and salvation. Until we do, we are not saved and we will never have peace.

Our Father’s Love

Ann praised Mother for her “unconditional love.” Mother was loving – and loved.

Mother’s love actually points to our heavenly Father’s perfect unconditional love. But only God perfectly expresses and exhibits unconditional love. Mothers can come close, but imperfectly.

Our Father has a perfect love, presence, and power. Trust Him!

In her eulogy, Ann expressed reassurance that Mother and Father were reunited in heaven and that she would see them both in time.

Revelation 21:4 reveals: “And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”

I pray that God wipes away all of Ann’s tears, from whatever source.

Ann Coulter – Assad Truther

Bizarre. Erstwhile neoconservative turned face of the Alt-Right has now gone TRUTHER on us.

Ann Coulter is an Assad Truther!

Coulter claims that Syria’s WMD attack never happened and photos of dead children are fake. If it did happen, America should not get involved, even though “half a million people have died already.” So, Syrian genocide is OK. (Coulter already supports Christian genocide.)

If Syria did commit a WMD attack, Coulter argues that “it wasn’t because they violated some, some horrible, you know, laws of war and humanity.” Except, of course, that is precisely what WMD use violates – “laws of war and humanity” that were enacted post-World War I and strengthened thereafter.

Bashar al-Assad is a (relatively) good guy and a friend of the United States. (Remember, only half-a-million dead.) Assad’s father was a butcher, too. Coulter wrote:

“Assad is one of the least bad leaders in the entire Middle East. He’s not a murderous thug like Saddam, has no rape rooms, isn’t into jihad, protects Christians and is fighting ISIS. He provided us with intelligence on al-Qaida after 9/11. He does not have crazy Islamic police slapping women around or throwing gays off buildings. (That would be our beloved ally, Saudi Arabia.)”

American generals are right out of Dr. Strangelove. “But, it’s been interesting watching so many of these generals straight out of Dr. Strangelove pushing for war with Syria, war with Russia, war with North Korea.” (Coulter is strangely prone to denigrate American war heroes and their families. It must stem from her Alt-Right ideology.)

Coulter questions why Assad would use chemical weapons. That’s not strange, Ann. Assad’s father leveled an entire city (Hama) in 1982 to demonstrate his power and crush resistance. Like father, like son. (Coulter should stop listening to leftist talking points and think for herself.)

Consequently, Coulter demands that Trump not wag the dog. She cannot see that #AmericaFirst includes a strong American military projecting American power against America’s enemies.

Coulter hates the rest of the world so much that she opposes Christians on overseas missions. Now, she wants America to cower within its borders (Fortress America) and let evil rise unopposed throughout the world.

To justify condoning evil she has gone truther, 1) denying evil exists, or 2) if evil does exist, it’s not so bad, and 3) evil out there is neither America’s fault nor America’s responsibility.

Most Americans, Ann, know the truth about Assad and they are coming to know the truth about you.

Coulter – Face of the Alt-Right

Donald Trump’s chief propagandist and cheerleader, Ann Coulter, is the face of the alt-Right.

Face of the alt-Right

Coulter has been a prominent member of the alt-Right community for decades. Over the past two years, Coulter’s beliefs and character have been exposed as never before. This is particularly problematic given her position as advisor to and promoter of the GOP presidential nominee. Her current book, In Trump We Trust, is a fawning tribute to failing candidate.

The alt-Right, according to Jonah Goldberg, “want[s] to replace the conservative movement.” That is Coulter’s goal, too: Destroy and replace.[1] Following are the core beliefs and attitudes of the alt-Right movement as exemplified by Coulter.

Anti-Semitic

Coulter’s anti-Semitic roots go back to the early 1990s           [2] when she worked for, consecutively, two Jewish-run law firms in New York City. Her anti-Semitism exploded[3] last year[4] during the presidential debates and recently re-emerged[5] to the point[6] where a long-time friend tweeted, “I’m ashamed ever to have known you.”[7]

Anti-Catholic

Once raised Catholic,[8] Coulter now expresses deep animosity toward Catholics.[9] She calls them “moral show-offs” and “fake Christians.” [10]Her anti-Catholic sentiments have only grown worse[11] as she seeks to create a New Know-Nothing Party.[12]

Nativist

Coulter’s New Know-Nothing Party is modeled after the mid-19th century version, complete with its America First, anti-immigrant rhetoric and platform. Her nativism runs deep[13] as she hates all immigrants[14] and even hates Christian missionaries[15] for going on overseas mission trips to save lives.

Coulter even trashed native-born Gov. Nikki Haley,[16] calling her an “ignorant immigrant.” Haley’s roots weren’t pure enough, unlike Coulter’s which trace back to the Puritans.[17]

Racist

Race figures prominently in Coulter’s worldview[18] and remarkably so. Yet, she remains very confused in her racial constructions,[19] regards diversity as white,[20] seeks a restoration of a white WASP nation,[21] and argues that she and Trump deserve a “racism credit”[22] for seeking to help blacks even as she advocates for her own (white) racial grievance industry.[23]

Make America White Again

Neo-Confederate

To that end, Coulter adopts and furthers neo-Confederate ideas,[24] continually defends the Confederacy and Confederate flag, and has actually confused the Confederate and American flags![25]

Coulter’s (and Trump’s) America is one where the elite few (like Coulter and Trump) would determine the nature of our national identity[26] at the expense of individual liberty,[27] the Constitution,[28] and our founding ideals.[29]

If one is truly America first, then one must be #NeverTrump!

[1]               See “Coulter Wants to Destroy GOP” at http://wp.me/p4jHFp-bn. Yes, I know, Conservatism and the GOP are not synonymous. However, Coulter has waged war – for years – against conservative and Christian ideals, values, and principles. She seeks to root out and destroy whatever opposes her will and willingly props up a would-be tyrant and statism to achieve her own objectives, whether they are peculiar and pecuniary or personal and political.
