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.Cognitive dissonance.
“Never has a civil war ended with such love between the former enemies. That’s our history, our country, our war — North and South, black and white.”
Coulter then segued to bashing immigrants and blaming them for the carnage (without citing any evidence):
“No, the moving force behind this frenzied destruction of American history isn’t black people suddenly offended by monuments that have been around for a century; it’s pushy newcomers, bitter that their ancestors had nothing to do with the creation of this country. After other people’s ancestors carved a nation out of the wilderness, they just kind of showed up. Now they go around obliterating anything that reminds them that this country was up and running long before they got here.”
Are these so-called “pushy newcomers” really the ones trashing America? Where’s her proof?
Coulter again defended the Confederacy while undercutting her own argument:
“America’s leading hate group, the Southern Poverty Law Center, titles its report on Confederate symbols ‘Whose Heritage? Public Symbols of the Confederacy.’ Yes, exactly, it’s not their heritage, so it must be destroyed. My ancestors fought on the Union side, but they were involved, and it matters to me.”
“MSNBC’s smirking Chris Hayes can get weepy about some ancient Roman ruin, and Rachel Maddow about a building in Warsaw, but I care about my history. These savages are smashing and graffitiing my antiquities.”
Coulter is rightly upset over cultural Marxism and the toppling of statues and monuments by people whom she calls “savages.” Are Confederate statues and monumentsreally Ann’s “history” and her “antiquities”?
Free book: Propaganda: George Orwell in the Age of Ann Coulter exposes Coulter as the quintessential propagandist who, especially this election cycle, has escalated her employment of various propaganda techniques to foist a monumentally flawed candidate upon the American people.
Trump has, indeed, adopted Coulter’s agenda, one which he would never pursue were he to win the election.
Heralding Trump as “Awesome” defames America’s roots and self-identity and besmirches all those who champion American exceptionalism and a constitutional Republic.

Free book: Vanity: Ann Coulter’s Quest for Glory explores the narcissism and hubris which besets Coulter and her savior, Donald Trump. Both profess a desire to save America but each seeks their own glory.
Hubris demands the fulfillment of personal ambition regardless of the consequences to America.
What is the impetus for this self-serving pride and how does it become so potent, yet, ultimately, impotent?

Free book: The Gospel According to Ann Coulter exposes charlatans like Coulter and Trump who claim allegiance to God while exhibiting allegiance only to themselves.
Ten years ago, Coulter was hailed a Christian heroine despite her often unchristian attributes. Now, many Christians join Coulter in championing a libertine “lout” (Coulter’s word) to save America from itself.
Faith has given way to fear. Why? How? What are we to believe in this season of chaos?

The apocalypse is nigh and Ann Coulter insists that only Donald Trump can defeat the Four Horsemen.
On The Drive Home (9/29/16), Coulter berated a Christian Never Trumper, saying, “So do not pretend to be a Christian when you are rooting for the destruction of the last Christian country on earth.”
Coulter’s rationale for haranguing this “nobody,” as she called him, is the same as it has been in recent years. In her mind, America is “the last Christian country on earth” and this election will decide the fate of America and the entire world.
Therefore, a Christian must support Trump – a non-Christian, bullying, libertine liberal liar masquerading as a conservative – in order to save mankind.
If you believe that God in heaven, Christian virtues and principles, Constitutional government and the rule of law, and liberty in the land of the free take precedence over a Trump victory in November, then you are pretending to be a Christian.
