Normal People

Ann Coulter’s definition of “normal” is someone just like her.

normal-people

In her latest column (11/16/16), Coulter argued that “the consequence of the Democratic Party’s decision in the 1970s [was] to get rid of all the normal people.”

Hearing Coulter – lover of words like “retarded” and defender of going “full-on spastic retard” – (for the sheer joy of being offensive) – use the word “normal” with regard to people almost be deemed Hitlerian.

Taken in the context of the Alt-Right’s rise to power this election cycle – an Alt-Right which would relish jettisoning the majority of mankind into the dustbin of history – Coulter speaking of “normal people” takes on far greater significance.

Remember, Coulter truly hates soccer – because it is “foreign” – and hates all foreigners and immigrants. especially Mexicans. Coulter even hates Christian missionaries for going to foreign countries.

She hates Gov. Nikki Haley for being an ignorant second-generation immigrant (meaning, she is a native-born American with foreign parents).

Coulter’s views can arguably be called anti-Semitic and anti-Catholic. She even attacks war heroes and Gold Star families.

Coulter’s hatred also extends to other Americans. She loves to call Democrats Nazis, crazy, and demonic.

Coulter hates Carly Fiorina and the GOP. Ben Carson does not fare well with Coulter. She has had a love-hate relationship with Ted Cruz. Once a Reagan-lover, Coulter now derides Reagan and his legacy.

For Coulter, “normal people” are just like her. But there aren’t too many of them because she is genetically superior to us.

The Alt-Right’s view of the world is distinctly nativist, racist, and supremacist. Ann Coulter is its high priestess and its muse.

Welcome to Ann Coulter’s world.

Trump’s Not So Smart Consigliere

Coulter says she doesn’t think of herself as smarter than Trump (or anyone else), yet she relishes being regarded as Trump’s brain. Go figure.

trumps-not-so-smart-consigliere

When asked, “did you feel like you were smarter than Trump?” Coulter coyly demurred, charging that it was “such a liberal question.” She added, “I don’t think of myself that way.” (When has she not thought of herself that way?)

Coulter continued her riff, contending, “’Oh, we just like to think we’re smarter than other people,’ I would never think that.” (Pick almost any Coulter book or column for a refutation of her claim.)

Coulter then absurdly averred, “I don’t evaluate people that way.” But she does that all the time.

Coulter even repeatedly attacks  prominent conservative leaders (e.g., “Rush Limbaugh, Sarah Palin, all the alleged conservatives” for disagreeing with or opposing her views. She actually claimed that those people don’t read and don’t know what they are talking about, in contradistinction to Coulter, who boasted: “My thought is that everyone should just listen to me.” (Yes, she’s the smart one.)

Even at the “Ann Coulter Roast with Rob Lowe,” Coulter claimed to have the very best jokes.

Coulter seems to see herself as the smartest person in the world. Everyone else fits on a scale from dumb to imbecilic. Calling someone “stupid” is one of her most used attacks.

Furthermore, Coulter loves the word “retard” and sees no problem with mocking “spastic retards.”

But Coulter has always felt superior to most people, even to her peers and her colleagues (see Chapter 4, “Brains”, in The Beauty of Conservatism).

As for Trump, Coulter argues, “Getting details wrong doesn’t interest me. He can follow my Twitter feed to get those things right.”

Wait? If Coulter is not smarter than Trump, then why should he take her advice? If Trump is so smart, why does he keep getting details wrong? And why does Coulter go crazy whenever her candidate goes “mental?”

A recent Coulter profile explained “How Ann Coulter Created Donald Trump.” If Coulter’s “The woman who tells Donald Trump what to think,” how could she not be smarter?

She just won’t admit it publicly. Perhaps she fears angering Trump again.

Ann Coulter, Bimbo

Ann Coulter loves the words “bimbo,” “retarded,” “idiot,” “moron,” and similar words!

Is Coulter, by her own definition, a bimbo?

Bimbo

Simply put, Coulter loves to offend people[1] and, more importantly, she thinks she is smarter than[2] and superior to[3] everyone else. Everyone opposed to Coulter is, in her mind, a “useless idiot.”[4]

In Slander, Coulter asserted, “If liberal propaganda didn’t work, it would be impossible to comprehend bimbo starlets and uneducated slobs attacking the intelligence of the man who won the Cold War.”

(Ironically, Coulter now attacks those “idol-worshipping Ronald Reagan”[5] and laments, “These johnny-come-latelies to Reagan worship [who] seem to think that he was Jesus Christ and could do no wrong.”[6] Would that make Coulter a bimbo talking head?)

Coulter’s own propagandistic version[7] is to simply assert that everyone who disagrees with her is stupid, retarded, or a bimbo. Of course, Coulter’s ad hominem attacks actually work by shifting debates over substantive arguments to issues of free speech.

Coulter Proudly Calls Nikki Haley a Bimbo

A fascinating dialogue on the John Gibson Show[8] is instructive of Coulter’s temperament and Trumpian sense of self-importance. Asked if she was joking about deporting Gov. Nikki Haley, Coulter replied:

“Um, no. No, no, no, no. Yeah, [I think she should be deported]. Yeah, she won’t be governor anymore, I suspect.”

Then Coulter stepped on a linguistic landmine, as is her wont:

“I think she’s a bimbo and, um, you know, having a black Indian do such a fantastic job in a response to the State of the Union, yeah, they picked her to be, to be …”

At this point, Coulter was interrupted by the host, her decades-long friend from her MSNBC days in 1996-97. Gibson asked if her characterization was “kosher.”

Coulter erupted, “What do you mean, ‘kosher?’ Is it true or isn’t it? You’re policing my language? I’m saying something I think is true. I think she is a bimbo!”

Naturally, Coulter never explained how it is true – and the host never asked. (They rarely do.)

Irate at being, in her mind, censored by political correctness, Coulter petulantly queried, “What is that? Do we have to add that to the list of words that can’t be used now, because the list is getting bigger than the dictionary?” (Proper grace and decorum never seem to register with Ann.)

Going with the flow, Coulter then defined what a bimbo is rather than use the term: “Yeah, a not very bright female. Actually, they’re not always females but they often have those qualities, the feminine qualities.”

Notice, Coulter, as she is prone to do, includes liberal men in her definition and regards those qualities as distinctly feminine in nature.

Contemptuous of being asked not to engage in name-calling, Coulter again erupted, “You’re joking!” Continuing, Coulter immediately asked, “Can you email me a list of what words can’t be used?” Then she defiantly said, “Bimbo!”

Still not done, Coulter addressed the GOP’s decision to choose Haley to give a rebuttal to Obama’s State of the Union address. Coulter pondered, “It’s going to be hard to describe how she was chosen. She’s a, a, a, a woman who was accidentally elected, um, because she’s pretty and isn’t very bright. Can we say that?”

In other words, a bimbo. However, Coulter never explained why being a bimbo would be a qualification for that choice – or for anything, for that matter.

Continuing her rant, and incorporating her unisex definition of the word in dispute, Coulter lambasted South Carolinian Republicans, saying, “they have the worst representatives. … Lindsey Graham is South Carolina. … Lindsey Graham and Nikki Haley? Lindsey Graham – also a bimbo!”

(Whenever exchanges like this take place, Coulter is implacably impenitent.[9])

Is Ann Coulter a Bimbo?

As noted above, Coulter offered her preferred definition of “bimbo” – someone who is “pretty and isn’t very bright.” We can work with that.[10]

Remember, it’s been over a decade since Coulter so eloquently said, “I’m so pleased with my gender. We’re not that bright.”[11] Proof of Coulter’s contention regarding herself abounds![12]

Just a few weeks ago, Coulter claimed that the Great Depression[13] was “the most prosperous period in American history.”[14] Need I say more?

Consider, too, Coulter’s own self-revelation. In 2003, she admitted, “Ann Coulter engages in ad hominem attacks. Ann Coulter is insane.”[15] 13 years later, her long-time friend, Sean Hannity, finally reached the same conclusion, saying, “You crack me up, but you’re insane.”[16]

Delusional – New Ann Coulter Book

EXCLUSIVE: New Book by Ann Coulter is a personal memoir!

We have obtained an advance copy of Ann Coulter’s latest top secret book. The nine-time New York Times best-selling author is soon to publish a memoir revealing her innermost thoughts and feelings. The beloved and despised “conservative” polemicist and “Christian” provocateur talks candidly about herself and her aspirations.

Coulter’s soon-to-be-released new book, Delusional, is subtitled, “If I Were Czar of the Universe …” and, in it, Coulter exposes her inner being. In a rare moment of candor, Coulter admits, “Ann Coulter engages in ad hominem attacks. Ann Coulter is insane.”[1]

In Delusional, you will discover the heart and soul of Ann Hart Coulter, who wants to be both a star and a czar, as she reveals her innermost self-perceptions, regardless of how divergent they are from reality.

Delusional

Among Coulter’s many whimsical fantasies about herself are her claims to be “more libertarian than most libertarians,” “more Tea Party than most tea partiers,” “totally pro-life,” and “an extraordinarily good Christian.” Yes, she even wants to be “czar of the universe,” despite acknowledging the totalitarian nature of that rank.

Here are some extracts for your amusement and edification.

Get ready to be captivated by the pundit who is captivated by herself!

All quotes are direct quotes from Coulter – vintage Ann Hart Coulter.

Introduction: “If I Were Czar of the Universe …”[2]

“Every once in a while I sit back and think what the world would be like if I were czar. And, if I were czar, I think my position would be that private institutions can do whatever they want to do and only the government can’t discriminate. … If I were czar of the universe, I would say that a private organization can do whatever it wants to, and, yes, it can discriminate on the base of race.”[3]

“But if I were the czar of the universe, she would be allowed to get away with it … I think a teacher or a school ought to be able to … on the basis of gender, race, the color of their hair. As long as it’s not the government, I think a private university ought to be able to do whatever it wants to.”[4]

“(This elusive concept is admittedly difficult to grasp, especially if you are a Supreme Court justice and prefer to think of yourself as ‘Czar of the Universe.’)”[5]

“You’re not Czar of the Universe anymore, SCOFLA.”[6]

“And I started asking my liberal friends, ‘What are you afraid of? If Tom DeLay were czar of the universe, what are you afraid he’d do?’”[7]

“I’m like the conservative ayatollah.”[8]

“You see – I really do need to be the ayatollah of this [conservative] movement.”[9]

CHAPTER 1: “I’m a middle-of-the-road moderate and the rest of you are crazy.”[10]

“There’s nothing more attractive than a rabid conservative.”[11]

“[I’m] right-wing crazy and proud of it.”[12]

“I’m second to none in right-wing lunacy.”[13]

“I went to Cornell, but I was a casual conservative. After being in Ithaca, NY, I left a violent conservative.”[14]

CHAPTER 3: “I’m more libertarian than most libertarians”[15]

“I’m more libertarian than most people who call themselves libertarian.”[16]

“I’m libertarian on everything except morality.”[17]

“[I regret] when I was 14 and briefly libertarian.”[18]

“My libertarian friends are probably getting a little upset now but I think that’s because they never appreciate the benefits of local fascism.”[19]

“My complaint with [my libertarian friends] is, they don’t appreciate the virtues of local fascism.”[20]

“Libertarian Party – capital ‘L’ – can end up being a little pointless and a little cowardly, I mean, just to attack both parties – ‘Oh, it’s both the Republicans and the Democrats.’ No. Come on! It really isn’t.”[21]

“I think people often claim to be libertarians, most people don’t even know what you’re talking about. It sort of sounds like ‘liberal,’ and I just think it’s sort of the cowardly thing to say.”[22]

“This is why people think libertarians are pussies. … You know, if you’re a little more manly you would tell them what your position on employment discrimination is. How about that? But it’s always ‘We want to legalize pot.’”[23]

“[9/11 truthers] are like libertarians that way. They take facts but the logic just falls off the cliff. They take facts and they weave them together …”[24]

“A lot of libertarians are godless. … So many of your rank-and-file libertarians are cowards because they’re godless and believing in God does not allow you to be a coward.”[25]

“If Rand Paul thinks black people are rooting for black crack dealers to go free, he’s even crazier than his old man.”[26]

[Asked, Are you for Ron Paul or Sarah Palin?]: “Probably Sarah Palin. But my candidate for President in 2012 is Governor of New Jersey, Chris Christie.”[27]

“I think we can do without the tea partiers and libertarians.”[28]

“If you are considering voting for the Libertarian candidate in any Senate election, please send me your name and address so I can track you down and drown you.”[29]

“[If the GOP loses] Republicans were done in by a circular firing squad. Republicans will lose hope, it will be a downward spiral of defeat and all that will be left to do is track down the people responsible and kill them.”[30]

“Libertarians and tea partiers, you were fantastic this election. I have a lot on my plate right now, so it’s kind of a relief that I’m not going to have to drown you.”[31]

CHAPTER 4: “I’m more Tea Party than most tea partiers”[32]

“I speak at a lot of Tea Parties, know a lot of them, and I think I am one.”[33]

“I suppose I consider myself a Tea Partier.”[34]

“I think we can do without the tea partiers and libertarians.”[35]

“… then you have the base – these tea partiers – running off and causing Republicans to lose elections. But for elections lost by Republican consultants and/or the Tea Party, we would already have [a Republican majority in the Senate].”[36]

“I think he’s [Jim DeMint] been paid off by Soros.”[37]

“On their ‘About’ page, [the Senate Conservative Fund] won’t tell me who runs it – George Soros, George Soros, George Soros. … I think a lot of these Tea Party groups are George Soros fronts.”[38]

“Oh I remember, the tea party’s darling is @marcorubio, spokesman for the tea party on amnesty. No, I won’t be ‘joining’ that party.”[39]

“Please get their addresses [of Chris McDaniel’s supporters] for me so I can fly in and hold their heads under the water until the bubbles stop.”[40]

“Without tea party challenges and greedy Republican consultants, Republicans would be looking at 59 senate seats in the next Congress.”[41]

“Libertarians and tea partiers, you were fantastic this election. I have a lot on my plate right now, so it’s kind of a relief that I’m not going to have to drown you.”[42]

“In return for the tea party not being spasmodic and pushing crazy candidates this election, the GOP establishment had better abandon its corporate-benefactor-pleasing ways.”[43]

CHAPTER 6: “I am totally pro-life.”[44]

“I enthusiastically embrace the death penalty [in the context of 14-year-old murderers].”[45]

“Sometimes people are innocent of the crime they were sentenced to death for, but perhaps not all crimes.”[46]

“I think that every day when I take the New York City subway. … I would like to kill all of them. I can analyze that and stop myself from killing people on a New York City street.”[47]

“Once you’ve committed a violent crime, I say, ‘death penalty.’ Why do we waste time with the prisons? I would give Chuck Colson one year of Prison Ministries. If you turn them into a Christian, they can go. Otherwise, death!”[48]

“Take the Virginia governor’s race. [GOP candidate] Ken Cuccinelli is down about 10 points. Guess what the libertarian is polling at? Ten points! We need some strategic hunting accidents, airplane crashes. We need Luca Brasi in our party.”[49]

“It’s not the position of the National Right To Life Committee that a woman should carry the baby of her rapist. I think our position is, ‘No, absolutely exceptions for rape and incest.’”[50]

“Those few abortionists were shot, or, depending on your point of view, had a procedure with a rifle performed on them. I’m not justifying it, but I do understand how it happened.”[51]

“I don’t really like to think of it as a murder. It was terminating Tiller in the 203rd trimester.”[52]

“W.W.J.K.: Who Would Jesus Kill?”[53]

Uniter

CHAPTER 7: “I’m an extraordinarily good Christian.”[54]

“I do believe in heaven. I’m what C.S. Lewis called ‘the worst sort of Christian.’ I believe enough to feel really miserable about not being a saint, and not enough to actually be a saint. So I’m just sort of miserable all the time.”[55]

“Yeah, I suppose I’m a Christian, it’s just not like I’m constantly writing about it and thinking about it”[56]

“Although my Christianity is somewhat more explicit in this book, Christianity fuels everything I write. … I was raised Christian, but I’ve become more Christian in the past five or ten years, and one most transforming effect in my own life is that I’m constantly at peace.”[57]

“I’m a Christian and everything comes from being a Christian … I do think Christianity fuels all of my 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.” [58]

“Although my Christianity is somewhat more explicit in this book, Christianity fuels everything I write.”[59]

“I love America, God, and truth, and I hate liars.”[60]

“I’m a Christian first and a mean-spirited, bigoted conservative second, and don’t you ever forget it.”[61]

“If God himself came down from heaven and told me these cops intentionally murdered Amadou Diallo knowing he was unarmed, I would not believe it.”[62]

“… being nice to people is an incidental tenet of Christianity.”[63]

“I used to love [John McCain], then I liked him, now I despise him.”[64]

“They forgive [John McCain], I don’t. … I’m reconsidering ‘the love your enemies’ part [of Christianity].”[65]

“Now I can officially hate [Todd Akin]. … Now I officially hate him.”[66]

“I hate the feminists. The real reason I loathe and detest feminists …[they] are also marauding, bloodthirsty vipers.”[67]

“If you don’t hate Clinton and the people who labored to keep him in office, you don’t love your country.”[68]

“I for one bolted past indifference straight into loathing long ago.”[69]

“I hate white liberals.”[70]

“The riot in Ferguson reminds me, I hate criminals, but I hate liberals more.”[71]

“I’ve never said anything so outrageous that I regret it. Though I’ve regretted things that were too tame.”[72]

“You can see I haven’t been transformed.”[73]

Ann Coulter’s “Straightjacket Party”

Coulter claims to abhor Nazi and Fascist imagery. Coulter decries comparisons of conservatives to the Devil. Coulter also rebukes liberals who label conservatives as lunatics.

In promoting Slander, Coulter argued:

“The big [lie] and the one I, I, that is really all the same lie is – Don’t listen to conservatives. They are stupid or they’re nuts. … This is how liberals respond to arguments, to principled arguments, to facts, to figures, to studies. They respond by calling the conservatives stupid, mean … This is one of, I think, the biggest lies. Liberals are incredibly vicious. They accuse Republicans and conservatives of every malfeasance imaginable and then they sit back and say, ‘Oh, both sides do it.’ Both sides don’t do it, as I demonstrate in my book.”[1]

Also in Slander, Coulter complained:

“This is how six-year-olds argue: They call everything ‘stupid.’ The left’s primary argument is the angry reaction of a helpless child deprived of the ability to mount logical counterarguments. Someday we will turn to the New York Times editorial page and find the Newspaper of Record denouncing President Bush for being a ‘penis-head.’”[2]

Nevertheless, with a straight face, Coulter contends: “Perhaps if conservatives had had total control over every major means of news dissemination for a quarter century, they would have forgotten how to debate, too, and would just call liberals stupid and mean. But that’s an alternative universe.”[3]

Yet, in this universe, that’s precisely what Coulter does.

Coulter’s Crazy Quotes

Coulter condemns the Left for its derogatory caricatures of Christians as crazy, writing, “The point of the phrase ‘religious right’ or ‘Christian conservative’ is not to define but to belittle. It informs the reader that the object of the sobriquet is presumptively insane by saying he is a member of it.”[4]

However, it is Coulter who is crazy about insanity.

In Slander alone, Coulter calls Sen. Jim Jeffords a “half-wit,” Gov. Gary Johnson “truly stupid,” and Gov. Christine Todd Whitman a “birdbrain” and “dimwit.” Coulter writes of “ideology-driven insanity,” “lunatic demands,” “lunatic overreaction” and “Telegenic half-wits.”

Note also this small sampling from her third book, Treason: “insane policies,” “crackpot ideas,” “this idiot,” “infantile logic-chopping games,” “worthless appeasers,” “raving column,” “the left’s dynamite combination of stupidity and arrogance,” “infantile Oedipal disorders,” “a nitwit’s hysteria,” “every idiot liberal,” “psychopathology of celebrity traitors,” “caterwauling idiot,” “knuckleheads,” and “hysterical fascist banshees.”

Insane

Ann Coulter is the Lois Lerner of the Republican Party. Her perspective on the Democratic Party is succinctly summarized in this statement: “In my lifetime, presidential elections have consisted not so much of Democrats versus Republicans, or even liberals versus conservatives, but the Straitjacket Party versus the Sane Party.”[5]

According to Coulter, “It’s as if all the brain-damaged people in America got together and formed a voting bloc.”[6] She blames the media (as well as institutions of higher learning) for this outcome. “Only total hegemonic control of all major means of news dissemination in America could possibly give rise to the insane pig Latin patois of the left.”[7]

Coulter believes, “Yes, of course liberalism is a mental defect.”[8] Indeed, she takes credit for that observation, asserting, “As I was the first to say and other people ripped it off, liberalism is an aspect of mental illness.”[9] And, of course, she wants to eliminate liberals: “Some liberals have become even too crazy for Texas to execute, which is a damn shame.”[10]

Indeed, she even takes credit for liberal lunacy itself: “The imminence of conservative victory has driven liberals to insanity. Have I contributed to this? Gosh, I hope so.”[11]

On her latest book tour, Glenn Beck exclaimed, “I’m sorry, Ann, you’re out of your mind crazy.”[12]
