Ann Coulter, Christian, Part 237

Is über-Christian Ann Coulter, author of Godless and Demonic, a (in her own words) “fake Christian?”

ann-coulter-christian-part-237

One could be forgiven for reaching that conclusion.

Perhaps Coulter’s tweets can shed some light. Her first and only Christmas tweet in 2016 proclaimed not the gospel but her political views on immigration: “My Christmas card: 7-Eleven Men’s Room Door, Bonner Springs, Kansas, today …” (Build the Wall).

Though she left Christ out of Christmas, what about Easter? Her 2016 Easter sunrise tweet – “Happy Easter! Thanks for eternal life, Jesus! And God bless this sweet Muslim martyred in Your name” – linked to a feature on a Muslim martyr.

While praising Jesus for salvation, Ann was joyful over a moderate Muslim who was martyred for seeking unity between people of different faiths. Asad Shah, a “devout Muslim,” never knew Jesus and was not saved. Jubilation?

In this year’s iteration of her (almost) annual Kwanzaa column (virtually identical to her 2013 version), Coulter concluded with these words (all caps): “MERRY CHRISTMAS, FELLOW CHRISTIANS!”

It is through the Prince of peace that mankind can experience true peace. Yet Coulter prefers political salvation for America and wishes a “Merry Christmas” to her “fellow Christians.”

Actually, the Christmas season is a spectacular time to introduce the Savior of the world to those in the world who do not yet know Him. Wishing non-Christians a “Merry Christmas” with a heart of love can, at the very least, point them toward Jesus. Moreover, it offers us an opportunity to share our faith with non-believers.

Christmas is all about the gospel of Christ, whose birth has been celebrated for two millennia. Favorite traditional Christmas songs (Joy to the World, God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen, etc.) celebrate the incarnation of the Messiah into our world, our lives, and our hearts.

The most well-known Bible verse, John 3:16, encapsulates the gospel message: “ For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” Our Father’s gift of Christmas was followed by His gift on the cross.

Jesus entered our world, not to see a “devout Muslim” martyred for saying “Merry Christmas” or to promote an anti-immigration agenda, but, rather, to save mankind from itself, and, in the process, break down barriers and bring reconciliation.

Reconciliation is the very last thing Coulter wants. Coulter began 2005 reveling to a reporter, “Oh, it was so much fun this year, because saying ‘Merry Christmas’ is like saying ‘Fuck you!’”

The Christmas spirit still eludes Coulter.

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.

Propaganda: Orwell in the Age of Ann Coulter

For almost two decades, Ann Coulter has proven herself untrustworthy.[1] From betraying her own client[2] and scamming voters,[3] to using lies and employing elimination rhetoric,[4] Coulter has shown herself to be unscrupulous – all in the pursuit of self-promotion and self-glory.[5]

A new book – Propaganda: Orwell in the Age of Ann Coulter – delves into the various ways in which Coulter promotes herself and her worldview, and it examines why so many people can come to believe her distortions and lies, even when confronted with a wealth of irrefutable evidence.

That Coulter retains any credibility at all – despite her pathological prevarication, her eager employment of elimination rhetoric, and her enmity to all who do not fit into her scheme of life – is perhaps the mystery of the ages. Propaganda endeavors to explain the seemingly inexplicable.

In a startling manner, Coulter audaciously adopted Orwell’s iconic 1984[6] as a blueprint for her own career. What totalitarian governments and dictators do on a national and international level, Coulter does on a somewhat smaller scale. Ever ideological, always self-promoting, Coulter uses the tactics and techniques, the verbiage and the principles, of 1984 to pursue her own agenda. Where that agenda collides with conservative principles or Christian values, those interests become subservient to her own.

If George Orwell is the Father of Big Brother, then he is the cherished uncle of Ann Coulter. Coulter certainly seems more at home with 1984 then she does with either the Bible or the Constitution.

Propaganda: Orwell in the Age of Ann Coulter is structured in a simple fashion.

Chapter One compares and contrasts Coulter with Nazi propagandist Leni Riefenstahl.

Chapter Two provides a humorous review of a fictitious Ann Coulter book, Delusional, in which all of the quotations contained therein are from Coulter, demonstrating the schizophrenia of Coulter’s own self-identity.

Chapter Three examines Coulter’s first distinctly Orwellian book, Slander, and its incorporation of many Orwellian propaganda techniques. It further looks at Coulter’s own addiction to addictive thinking and its implication in her work.

With Chapter Four, we see the pervasiveness of Orwellian thinking as it is exhibited in Coulter’s third book, Treason, which is steeped in the thought processes of 1984. This chapter explores the many and varied Orwellian techniques and constructs employed by Coulter in Treason.

Chapter Five looks at Coulter’s first compilation of essays, How to Talk to a Liberal (if you must), which is an instruction book – or, How To manual – for conservatives.

A series of case studies then fleshes out the reality of Coulter’s utilization of propaganda and its political and cultural impact.

An Epilog renders hope possible in the life and work of Coulter.

An Appendix critiques an (almost) perfect piece of propaganda by Coulter.

Ann Coulter’s “Spawn of Satan Convention”

Just as Coulter claims to abhor Nazi and Fascist imagery, Coulter decries comparisons of conservatives to the Devil:

A novel released in 2004 advocated the assassination of President Bush “for the good of humankind.” Liberal columnist William Raspberry referred to President Bush as “the Devil.” Remember the good old days, during Bush’s honeymoon with the press, when he was just Hitler?”[1]

Spawn

Eschewing demonization, Coulter nevertheless demonizes. Consider alone her books, Godless and Demonic, which clearly demonize the Left in spiritual terms.

One decade ago, Coulter infamously described the Democratic National Convention in near apocalyptic terms, beginning, “Here at the Spawn of Satan Convention …”

Demonic Liberals

Coulter’s first post-9/11 book, Slander, seemingly laid all the evils of the world at the feet of liberals. She began her book:

“Political ‘debate’ in this country is insufferable. Whether conducted in Congress, on political talk shows, or played out at dinners and cocktail parties, politics is a nasty sport. At the risk of giving away the ending: It’s all liberals’ fault.”[2]

Coulter ended her next book, Treason, claiming, “The fundamental difference between liberals and conservatives is: Conservatives believe man was created in God’s image; liberals believe they are God.” Then, in explaining a litany of liberal abuses, Coulter wrote, “because they are gods. … because they are gods. … because they are gods. … they are gods. … they are gods.”[3]

Her last words: “They instinctively root for anarchy and against civilization. The inevitable logic of the liberal position is to be for treason.”[4]

In Godless, Coulter catalogued what she considered an ungodly (anti-God?) religion of the godless:

“Liberals love to boast that they are not ‘religious,’ which is what one would expect to hear from the state-sanctioned religion. Of course liberalism is a religion. It has its own cosmology, its own miracles, its own beliefs in the supernatural, its own churches, its own high priests, its own saints, its own total worldview, and its own explanation of the existence of the universe. In other words, liberalism contains all the attributes of what is generally known as ‘religion.’”[5]

Coulter emphasized the ungodly (un-biblical and un-American) nature of this false religion, writing, “Liberals swoon in pagan admiration of Mother Earth, mystified and overawed by her power. They deny the Biblical idea of dominion and progress, the most ringing affirmation of which is the United States of America.”[6]

In sneering condescension, Coulter continued: “Although they are Druids, liberals masquerade as rationalists, adopting a sneering tone of scientific sophistication, which is a little like being condescended to by a tarot card reader.”[7]

With Demonic, Coulter expanded her critique of liberalism in league with the forces of darkness, noting, “The Democratic Party is the party of the mob, irrespective of what the mob represents.”[8] She then identified the techniques employed by the Left (oddly, techniques employed by Coulter):

“The Democrats’ playbook doesn’t involve heads on pikes – at yet – but uses a more insidious means to incite the mob. The twisting of truth, stirring of passions, demonizing of opponents, and relying on propagandistic images in lieu of ideas – these are the earmarks of a mob leader.”[9]

One book review made a salient observation:

“An author that accuses her opponents of doing things that she immediately, in full view of her readers, does – is either very stupid or very evil. I do not think Ann Coulter is stupid. To use the Bible to back up a pack of lies is disgusting and the devil, Jesus said, is a liar.”[10]
