.@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.

Joker: Ann Coulter Unplugged provides an in-depth, detailed analysis of Coulter’s worldview and character flaws which have led her to be so wrong in so many areas in which she regards herself as an expert.

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.

Coulter on Rape – Good for Politics

Ambulance-chasing Ann Coulter never lets a bad analogy go to waste, especially if it involves rape. Coulter sees rape when none exists or imposes rape into a political discussion for its emotional impact and to distract from the real issues at hand.

Rape05

Coulter’s most recent foray into depravity was her claim that Donald Trump is the victim of media rape. She has fantasized about rape – being raped – for years.

Rape Fantasies

Coulter has likened immigration to rape.

Rape01

Coulter claimed to be personally raped by immigration.

Rape02

Coulter charged New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio with raping her again!

Rape03

Chillingly, Coulter joked about being raped by political correctness.

RapeTrivial

Coulter defended Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski of assault charges by claiming to have been gang raped.

Coulter Gang Raped

On the other hand, Coulter has little regard for either the victims of actual rape or their unborn children. Even opposition to a rape exception for abortion in tantamount to treason in Coulter’s eyes.

Rape04

Nonetheless, Coulter is absolutely right to oppose the “epidemic” of false rape accusations on college campuses. One wonders why, then, she would perpetrate her own rape hoaxes.

RapeTreason

Coulter lives by her own set of conflicting rules which necessarily create contradictions and cognitive dissonance. No wonder Coulter continues to lose credibility and relevance.

Ann’s Rape Fantasies

Polemicist Ann Coulter has an obsession with making bogus rape accusations to achieve her political ends. Her shock-jock technique of employing hyperbole in this way grotesquely trivializes actual rape. Strangely, Coulter frequently criticizes the rash of rape hoaxes perpetrated by the Left.

Rape Fantasies

Ann Coulter Trivializes Rape

Ann Coulter’s lead paragraph in her latest polemic would be hilarious if it weren’t so Coulteresque.

“Sorry this column is late. I got raped again on the way home. Twice. I should clarify – by ‘raped,’ I mean that two seductive Barry White songs came on the radio, which, according to the University of Virginia, constitutes rape.”[1]

RapeTrivial

If anyone else had written that, one could say it beautifully encapsulates the folly of redefining terms to the point where they cease to have meaning. Like Rush Limbaugh, Coulter is using absurdity to illustrate the absurd. But Coulter has no credibility on this issue to make that point.

In her column, Coulter does makes a superb point, “If we’re in the middle of a college-rape epidemic, why do all the cases liberals promote keep turning out to be hoaxes? Maybe I’m overthinking this, but wouldn’t a real rape be more persuasive?”[2]

However, Coulter’s brilliant analysis of the alleged “rape crisis” on college campuses makes one’s mind boggle over Coulter’s own disingenuous on rape.

The previous night on Hannity, Coulter lamented the trivialization of rape by all of these rape hoaxes. But Coulter herself has – for years – trivialized rape.

No matter what Ann Coulter says, it is hard to believe that she cares about rape victims or the offspring of rape. She does not.

Coulter blithely speaks of raping the planet as our God-given duty, and, just this year, made numerous accusations of rape. Indeed, Coulter claimed that she was being raped.

Immigration = Rape

At a conference in March, Coulter likened immigration to rape. In her own words:

“No, [immigration] isn’t a natural process. It’s like you’re being raped and the guy is telling you, ‘Sorry, my penis is in you. Nothing you can do about it.’ … No, you’re raping me! Demographics are changing by force. There is nothing natural about it.”[3]

Those bolded words – “you’re raping me” – were shouted, with gasps from the audience!

Rape01

For nearly two decades, Coulter has railed against rape hoaxes, such as Tawana Brawley, which were perpetrated to make political points. But Coulter’s real attitude toward rape is cavalier. Babies conceived in rape have no value in her eyes. Coulter speaks favorably of raping the planet. And, now, she claims immigrants are raping her!

Rape02

“Rape Us Again”

Only a month later, Coulter again diluted the meaning and diminished the significance of rape by making false accusations against the mayor of New York City. Coulter marred an otherwise exemplary column on the rapists of the Central Park jogger by invoking the Rape Card again. Coulter concluded that column with these words:

“But now de Blasio wants to hold down our legs while the ‘Central Park Five’ rape us, again.”[4]

Rape03

When did the “Central Park Five” rape Ann, how is de Blasio raping her again, and how are immigrants now raping Coulter? (Let’s be clear: only one person was raped and it was not Coulter!)

Coulter, the consummate wordsmith, should know better! Lacking sense and sensibilities, Coulter – again! – diminishes and trivializes the reality of actual rape.[5]

Astonishingly, her column (and a large section in in her book) describes the 1989 rape in question, yet Coulter is inured to the reality of what she describes.

Rape Exception for Abortion

Moreover, Coulter thinks life in the womb is a “philosophical” argument and wants pro-lifers to be pragmatic by permitting human beings who are conceived in rape to be aborted.

She insists, “Can you learn to say, ‘no exceptions’ or rather, ‘no abortions with exceptions for rape, incest and the life of the mother?’ Learn that. Memorize that. Stop waxing philosophical when you’re running to make laws.”[6]

Rape04

Absolving Romney for his disastrous defeat in 2012, Coulter blamed pro-lifers:

“The last two weeks of the campaign were consumed with discussions of women’s ‘reproductive rights,’ not because of anything Romney did, but because these two idiots [Akin and Mourdock] decided to come out against abortion in the case of rape and incest.”

Coulter’s disregard for human life is clear in her pretzel-twisted logic:

“No law is ever going to require a woman to bear the child of her rapist. Yes, it’s every bit as much a life as an unborn child that is not the product of rape. But sentient human beings are capable of drawing gradations along a line.”

A child of rape is “every bit as much a life as an unborn child that is not the product of rape,” yet that child’s life is forfeit for political reasons.[7]

Ethics have never been Coulter’s forte.

Update: Not long after this column was posted, Coulter suggested that physical violence usually accompanies rape, like “being hit on the head with a brick. People know what a rape is, and to have girls trying to get attention from Lena Dunham to this poor psychotic at UVA … ( Lars Larson Show, 12/11/14).

Coulter has a surprisingly different perspective when it comes to her own safety:

“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 (MSNBC, 11/10/96).”
