Separated at Birth II: Joy Reid & Ann Coulter – Christian Edition

Despite their personal enmity and political differences, Joy Reid and Ann Coulter are remarkably alike in their polemical nature and viewpoints in certain areas: anti-Mexican, anti-Semitic, death threats, hate speech, rape fantasies, identity politics, and even misogyny. To that, we can add hostility toward Christians.

Separated at Birth 2

Joy Reid regards evangelical beliefs as fiction, fantasy. She decries mainstream Christianity as opportunistic and apathetic toward those in need. As noted in Christian Post, “Joy Reid’s declaration against faith and family are part and parcel of a greater spiritual movement among the liberal elite to destroy both faith in God and the family.” Indeed, Reid regards “Church … family … police … military … the national anthem” as anachronistic and old-fashioned, things to be forgotten. Reid even attacked Sarah Palin for displaying a Christmas tree – on Christmas!

Ann Coulter has opposed Christians for fully two decades (while claiming to be a Christian!) Coulter has repeatedly condemned Christian missionaries for daring to fulfill the Great Commission in foreign lands, aiding those who are poor, sick, and in need. She calls Christians heeding their consciences “fake Christians” and attacks Christians for being godly. Further, Coulter demands that Christian refugees from genocide overseas be martyred. Moreover, Coulter’s WASP worldview compels her to continually denigrate Catholics.

In many ways, Joy Reid and Ann Coulter are twins. Both are openly hostile to Christianity while one – Ann Coulter – actually claims to be a Christian. Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks, revealing the truth.

Separated at Birth: Joy Reid & Ann Coulter

Arch-left commentator Joy Reid and alt-right polemicist Ann Coulter hate each other (and one another’s politics), yet they have many traits in common. (One trait which markedly distinguishes the two is that Reid will actually apologize when she screws up.)

Separated at Birth

Ann and Joy have frequently butted heads on national television, with mixed results. But have they ever looked into the mirror of their own souls? If they had, they would have seen similarities in their viewpoints (Identity Politics) and polemical style.

Roseanne Barr and Joy Reid

The most recent kerfuffle began with an injudicious Roseanne Barr tweet which caused a meltdown on the Left. Just days later, Samantha Bee’s hateful attack on conservatives put a spotlight on liberal hypocrisy.

Then Joy Reid’s hateful attacks on whole groups of people bubbled up into the national consciousness.

Conservatives were quick to highlight Reid’s many attacks on Coulter, without realizing that Coulter shares Reid’s modus operandi and, in some areas, polemical perspective and nature.

Here are a few of Reid’s remarks regarding Coulter:

Joy Reid anti-Coulter tweets

What commonalities can be found between Reid and Coulter? Many. Here are just a few.

Misogyny

Reid’s misogynistic language employed against Coulter mirrors Coulter’s own decades-long style. Indeed, on Ingraham Angle (6/1/18), in response to Reid’s postings, Coulter replied:

“And then there’s the always popular calling me a man for having a beautiful swan-like neck. Liberal women, as long as we’re being frank here, aren’t used to that because they have rolls of fat on their neck. They’re really taken aback by my beautiful swan-like neck.”

Ingraham was taken aback: “Oh gosh. Okay, alright.”

But is it really “OK” and “alright?”

Coulter has, in fact, attacked women (for being women and on the basis of this looks and lack of intelligence) for around three decades. [See chapter 10,”Equality: Self-Evident Truths,” The Gospel According to Ann Coulter and chapter 7, “Spawn of Satan Convention,” The Beauty of Conservatism.]

Hate Speech

Coulter calls herself a “polemicist” and says she enjoys her “vitriol.” [See Chapter 8, “Polemics R Us,” The Beauty of Conservatism.]

Anti-Mexican

I tweeted: “She sounds an awful lot like @AnnCoulter who for several years now has denounced Mexican rapist culture and illegals who take jobs & welfare from Americans. http://wp.me/p4jHFp-6A.”

[See “Adios, Ann: Fear Mexicans, Not Jihadists,” “Adios, Ann: Coulter’s Blood Politics,” “Adios, Ann: Coulter’s Racial Confusion,” “Coulter: All Immigrants Are Bad,” and “Stop Immigrants, Not Terrorists!”]

Anti-Semitic

I tweeted: “Reid has savagely attacked @AnnCoulter yet they both love Identity Politics and both have a long history of #Antisemitism #AnnCoulter http://wp.me/p4jHFp-f4 .”

[See “Ann Coulter’s Jewish Roots,” “Effing Jews and Ann Coulter’s Waterloo (or Damascus Road?),” “First, Jews; Now, Catholics?,” “Jews: Quality, not Quantity,” and “Is Ann Coulter Anti-Semitic?”]

Death Threats

I tweeted: “Like Reid, @AnnCoulter is OK with death threats and rape jokes. Many of #AnnCoulter‘s “jokes” preceded Reid’s and Coulter has NEVER apologized. http://wp.me/p4jHFp-fY .

[See “Coulter OK with Her Death Threats” and Appendix 1, “Sampling of Coulter’s Elimination Rhetoric,” The Gospel According to Ann Coulter.]

Rape Fantasies

I tweeted: “Like Reid, @AnnCoulter is OK with death threats and rape jokes. Many of #AnnCoulter‘s “jokes” preceded Reid’s and Coulter has NEVER apologized. http://wp.me/p4jHFp-fY .

[See “Ann Coulter Trivializes Rape,” “Ann Coulter Was Gang Raped!,” “Ann’s Rape Fantasies,” and “Coulter on Rape – Good for Politics.”]

Identity Politics

I tweeted: “Reid has savagely attacked @AnnCoulter yet they both love Identity Politics and both have a long history of #Antisemitism #AnnCoulter http://wp.me/p4jHFp-f4 .”

[See “Adios, Ann: Diversity = White,” “Adios, Ann: Coulter’s WASP Fantasy,” “Coulter – Face of the Alt-Right,” “Warped Alt-Right Worldview,” and an e-book, #NeverTrump: Coulter’s Alt-Right Utopia.]

If you regard Joy Reid’s words and worldview as reprehensible, then you should so regard Ann Coulter’s.

 

Trump is a B.S.-er, Not Liar

Straight from the horse’s mouth, Donald Trump really is full of B.S.

trump-is-a-bs-er

Ann Coulter told the audience of The Drive Home (9/29/16), “I think what Trump is is a BSer, not a liar, by which I mean, it’s rhetorical.” She went on to claim that Trump is guilty of hyperbole and jokes, but not lying.

If only that were true.

Coulter has had to contend for over 15 months with Trump’s often bizarre formulations. Coulter has called her candidate “mental” and she “wanted to shoot” her TV prompted by Trump’s words and actions.

Coulter has admitted that Trump is a fraud, yet defends his every misstep, from mocking disabled journalists to defending misogyny. For her, death threats are fun and threatening to nuke Europe a blast.

Never forget, Coulter remains a propagandist for Trump, who, at heart is a bully. Coulter herself is the face of the Alt-Right.

Truly a match made in Hell.

I wanted to shoot my TV

Ann Coulter is renowned for her employment of elimination rhetoric and her desire to kill people and nuke nations. Now, she sets her sights on her own television set!

i-wanted-to-shoot-my-tv

In a rather strange interview with Politico, Coulter both commended Donald Trump as a fantastic and magnificent presidential candidate and also expressed her frequent frustration with himgetting the details wrong” and going off-script.

So much so that Coulter said three times: “I wanted to shoot my TV.”

Drop the gun, Ann. Leave your poor TV alone. Don’t blame your TV, blame your candidate.

(Don’t blame #NeverTrump, blame Trump’s failures, flaws, fabrications, and fantasies.)

Ann, may I suggest: Turn off your TV.     Put on more nicotine patches.     Calm down (it’s only one election).     Fess up (confession is good for the soul).

Remember, Trump is your candidate. You picked him. You deified him. You own him. You have only yourself to blame.

Coulter OK with Her Death Threats

Whether deliberately, or with flippancy, Coulter enjoys employing elimination rhetoric.

Death Threats

Death threats are well within her wheelhouse. She calls them jokes or denies that they are threats but the truth cannot be denied.

In a recent column, Coulter tried doing just that – denying the obvious.

(Check out Appendix 1 of The Gospel According to Ann Coulter for a panorama of her pronouncements.)

Here are just a few examples:

“I think that every day when I take the New York City subway. But I can analyze my feelings. My privacy. I would like to kill all of them. I can analyze that and stop myself from killing people on a New York City street.” – 7/11/00

“I think you would be nicer to me if you thought I was packing [a gun].” – 2/16/01

“One time I had a shot at Clinton. I thought, ‘Ann, that’s not going to help your career.’” – 2/10/06

“My only regret with Timothy McVeigh is he did not go to the New York Times Building.” – 8/26/02

“Both [Al Gore and Gray Davis] were veterans, after a fashion, of Vietnam, which would make a Gore/Davis presidential ticket the only compelling argument yet in favor of friendly fire.” – 8/13/03

“I hope the results are similar [for John Kerry], since Osama is D-E-A-D dead in Tora Bora since December, 2001.” – 10/10/04

“Would that it were so! That the American military were targeting journalists. … Yes, they should do that right after targeting the journalists.” – 2/7/05

“We need somebody to put rat poison in Justice Stevens’s créme brulée.” – 1/27/06

“If the death penalty doesn’t deter murder, how come Michael Moore is still alive and I’m not on death row?” – 6/6/06

“They Shot the Wrong Lincoln.” – 8/30/06

“If I’m going to say anything about John Edwards in the future, I’ll just wish he had been killed in a terrorist assassination plot.” – 6/25/07

“Totally ironically, Zeke Emanuel is on my death list. Hold the applause. I’m going to be on the death panel. … Right [I get to pick who dies.] I have a list. Should I start with the ‘A’s?” – 8/12/09

“Some are left alive, quick reload.” – 2/19/10
