Ann Coulter – Assad Truther

Bizarre. Erstwhile neoconservative turned face of the Alt-Right has now gone TRUTHER on us.

Ann Coulter is an Assad Truther!

Coulter claims that Syria’s WMD attack never happened and photos of dead children are fake. If it did happen, America should not get involved, even though “half a million people have died already.” So, Syrian genocide is OK. (Coulter already supports Christian genocide.)

If Syria did commit a WMD attack, Coulter argues that “it wasn’t because they violated some, some horrible, you know, laws of war and humanity.” Except, of course, that is precisely what WMD use violates – “laws of war and humanity” that were enacted post-World War I and strengthened thereafter.

Bashar al-Assad is a (relatively) good guy and a friend of the United States. (Remember, only half-a-million dead.) Assad’s father was a butcher, too. Coulter wrote:

“Assad is one of the least bad leaders in the entire Middle East. He’s not a murderous thug like Saddam, has no rape rooms, isn’t into jihad, protects Christians and is fighting ISIS. He provided us with intelligence on al-Qaida after 9/11. He does not have crazy Islamic police slapping women around or throwing gays off buildings. (That would be our beloved ally, Saudi Arabia.)”

American generals are right out of Dr. Strangelove. “But, it’s been interesting watching so many of these generals straight out of Dr. Strangelove pushing for war with Syria, war with Russia, war with North Korea.” (Coulter is strangely prone to denigrate American war heroes and their families. It must stem from her Alt-Right ideology.)

Coulter questions why Assad would use chemical weapons. That’s not strange, Ann. Assad’s father leveled an entire city (Hama) in 1982 to demonstrate his power and crush resistance. Like father, like son. (Coulter should stop listening to leftist talking points and think for herself.)

Consequently, Coulter demands that Trump not wag the dog. She cannot see that #AmericaFirst includes a strong American military projecting American power against America’s enemies.

Coulter hates the rest of the world so much that she opposes Christians on overseas missions. Now, she wants America to cower within its borders (Fortress America) and let evil rise unopposed throughout the world.

To justify condoning evil she has gone truther, 1) denying evil exists, or 2) if evil does exist, it’s not so bad, and 3) evil out there is neither America’s fault nor America’s responsibility.

Most Americans, Ann, know the truth about Assad and they are coming to know the truth about you.

Got Racism?

Renowned for her racism, Ann Coulter again heralded the racial superiority of the white male over minorities (particularly women).

got-racism

In her column (1/11/17), Coulter asserted (emphasis added), “the 21st-century white American male is the most pacific – and least rock-throwing – Y-chromosomed being ever to walk the Earth..”

In contrast, Coulter contends, “Black women accusing white men of throwing rocks at them are thinking of what they would do.”

Moreover, Coulter declares rock throwing at Occupy Wall Street events was not committed by the “directionless, white (alleged) ‘men’” but “was done by their minority backup.”

During the last presidential cycle, Coulter claimed that she deserved a racism credit because of her good intentions. Her deepest desire is to recreate a WASP America, arguing that true diversity is white. Oh, and the superiority of WASP culture can be traced to its genes.

Coulter has become the high priestess of the Alt-Right movement, yet denies that its worldview and agenda emulate those of David Duke. She even confused the Confederate and American flags.

Coulter’s racist views keep bubbling out in her tweets, columns, and books because she regards herself as genetically superior to other people.

Ann Coulter Can’t Count, Read or Reason

In a stunning twitterstorm, Ann Coulter proved that she cannot count, read, or reason.

ann-coulter-cant-count-read-or-reason

Coulter was outed on January 5th, with a big controversy over her three-character tweet – “14!” – which shed obviously meant to identify the number of days until Trump’s inauguration but which was misconstrued as a white supremacist code word.

Defending herself, an irate Coulter unleashed her fury in a 2 ½-hour Twitter tirade (emphasis added):

6:16 pm – As I have been doing periodically since January 2016, today I tweeted out the number of days left in Obama’s presid… twitter.com/i/web/status/8…
6:17 pm – Inasmuch as today is Day 14 on the Obama Countdown Clock, I tweeted “14.” https://t.co/ArR3JMApGV
6:20 pm – Unknown to me, but VERY well known to hysterics, “14” has some mystical significance for the 5 or 6 ppl who believe themselves to be Nazis.
6:21 pm – Being the target of idiotic attacks can be fun! But being called a Nazi – even by ppl who are really really really dumb – isn’t so fun.
6:21 pm – The ringleader, a CUNY prof who specializes in – you’ll never guess! – social activism on the taxpayer’s dime, can’t figure out Twitter.
6:22 pm – This loathsome creature takes taxpayer money in order to waste students’ time and ensure that they are unemployable.
6:23 pm – His students don’t know how to read or write, but a guy too stupid to use Twitter, count or follow the news, is teaching them how to protest
6:246 pm – This charlatan ADVERTISES: I teach students to make life hell for taxpayers, white ppl and workers. (But not learn anything useful.)
6:24 pm – The others work at HuffPo & Mediaite, under the insane delusion that some day it will read to a paying job. (It won’t, Jenna.)
6:26 pm – To sh*t-for-brains, desperate hysterics: If you put your head on the desk & think really, really, really hard, I be… twitter.com/i/web/status/8…
7:57 pm – No, 14 days, moron. See “Obama Countdown Clock” which I’ve been using for my countdown tweets since LAST JANUARY.… twitter.com/i/web/status/8…
8:49 pm – 14: Angus Johnston’s percentile on the verbal SAT. twitter.com/studentactivis…
8:49 pm – 14: The last age at which girls were nice to Angus Johnston. twitter.com/studentactivis…

Coulter seemed particularly incensed over being called a Nazi, an appellation which actually deserves some consideration.

(It seemed obvious to me that “14!” was part of a countdown and not a secret code word – and that she had simply miscounted – but her critics’ confusion is understandable given Coulter’s prominence in the Alt-Right movement and her ideological affiliation with David Duke.)

Counting

As for counting, well, Coulter needs some lessons.

Her Twitter counteroffensive ignored this self-evident truth:

20 days – 5 days = 15 (not 14) days!

The countdown clock itself read 14 days plus. (It’s always the plus which seems to escape Coulter’s grasp.)

Nevertheless, Coulter has accused Republicans of stupidity, saying, “It’s not even just cowardice on the part of Republicans. It’s abject stupidity. It’s an inability to do math.”

Indeed, her rebuttals merely proved the point of her critics. Coulter’s error could easily be corrected by 1) counting on one’s fingers, 2) accurately reading source material, and 3) reason.

Both literacy and numeracy appear to evade Coulter. She even thinks the Great Depression was a time of unparalleled prosperity for America. Now that’s bad counting.

Reading

Actually reading her source material would have given her the clue. Her justifying tweet contains the answer to her error. Immediately above the countdown clock, the text reads, “we also have the countdown to 12 noon the same day, when inauguration actually occurs.”

countdown-2

In other words, Coulter was using the clock counting down to midnight, not noon (when the inauguration actually takes place). Each countdown is X days plus hours, minutes, and seconds.

In the military, it would be called 14 days and a wake-up, meaning more than 14 days. (A partial day counts as a day.)

Coulter should have used the noon countdown clock to determine the time until Trump’s inauguration (as plainly stated on the clock).

By her own account, for a year Coulter has been counting down to the day of the inauguration, not to the inauguration (and failing to see the difference).

The next day, Coulter – with rapid-fire humorous tweets – attempted to deflect attention from her miscalculation, to no avail (emphasis added):

3:25 pm – 13! (which is not a satanic, Nazi, Klan or reference, Lindsey Ellefson & Angus Johnston, you pathetic morons.)
3:28 pm – 13! Hey @Mediaite! Is it the number of brain cells in Lindsey Ellefson’s head??? https://t.co/une7ya8rUM
3:28 pm – 13! Could it be the jersey number of Russian hockey player Pavel Datsyuk as a secret code to Putin??? Get on this… twitter.com/i/web/status/8…
3:30 pm – 13! Is it the average number of times a day Angus Johnston swears at his parents for naming him Angus? https://t.co/sUwm1PW8Ko
3:30 pm – 13! Hey Angus! Could this be a reference to our 13th president, who had SLAVES??? https://t.co/jivwOYJ6mf
3:32 pm – 13! Is it the average number of years Angus Johnston’s students have to live with their parents after they graduat… twitter.com/i/web/status/8…
3:34 pm – 13! Hey sleuths! It’s *Friday* the 13th! A cryptic message to Jason to put on his hockey mask fire up the chainsaw… twitter.com/i/web/status/8…
3:36 pm – 13! Is it a subtle reference to the number of hours liberals spend lying about me per day??? https://t.co/2P7e7Xq1OU
3:37 pm – 13! Is it a DOG WHISTLE referencing the average number of fake news stories by HuffPo per day? https://t.co/qHzKNmgmNv
3:38 pm – 13! An unlucky number … unless it’s the number of days Obama has left in office!!!!! https://t.co/O8dKPE8DdZ

Reasoning

Humor notwithstanding, Coulter replicated her mistake from the previous day.

Berating her critics for their paucity of brain cells, Coulter showed herself immune from reason.

countdown-1

Let’s read the countdown clock she used.

It reads, “Time until Obama leaves office.”

It gives the days, hours, minutes, and seconds.

Let’s reason: Once the 13 days have expired, there remains over eight hours “until Obama leaves office.”

In other words, more than 13 days (i.e., 13 days plus part of a 14th day). It’s not in 13 days, it’s on the 14th day.

So, Coulter’s critics – and everyone else who knows how to count on their fingers – knows it’s 14 days until Trump becomes president.

(This isn’t like a birthday, which is traditionally marked at midnight, but a legal ceremony with a specific time of implementation.)

Coulter’s critics were rash – but understandably so – to impart a nefarious meaning to Coulter’s “14!” tweet. For her part, Coulter has again demonstrated that she doesn’t handle criticism very well, is quick to justify herself, and loathe to admit error.

Coulter Turns 55 – or Zero?

Ann Coulter was born 55 years ago, today, on 12/8/1961. Coulter’s spiritual birth date is as yet undetermined.

ann-coulter-turns-55-or-zero

Chronologically, Ann is 55-years-old; spiritually, she may not even be a newborn.

Coulter received a strict Catholic education (K-8) at St. Aloysius Catholic School until she entered public school. She eventually rejected her father’s Catholicism in favor of her mother’s Presbyterian faith, yet, upon reaching adulthood, she apparently disengaged herself from religion altogether. The absence of an internal moral compass would forever plague her.

With the publication of Godless (2006), Coulter zealously expressed a newfound faith in God, one which was conveniently finely calibrated to her ideology, agenda, and career.

Her father passed away in 2008, after years of declining health from dementia. Her mother died the following year. Since then, Coulter’s religious and political views have become quite bizarre, suggesting that her religious beliefs – whatever they were as a child and young adult – were actually those of her parents but not something she herself truly believed.

Coulter has never been restrained by an internal moral compass. Rather, when she toed the line it was to please her parents, not God. With their passing, Coulter has liberated herself from all moral and religious constraints.

As Coulter puts it, “My mother passed away. I can say anything now.

Non-Christian Behavior

Coulter claims to be “an extraordinarily good Christian” and “a big Christian.”[1] (I’m surprised she hasn’t claimed to be a Yuge Christian, like her savior, Donald Trump.)

For a “Christian,” Coulter spends an ungodly amount of time attacking Christians for behaving like Christians.[2] Moreover, Coulter’s own version of the gospel[3] is decidedly different from that of traditional and historic Christianity.

Coulter defends Trump on virtually everything, irrespective of the truth, belying her claim, “I want to speak the truth.”[4] But then, truth has never been a high priority for Coulter.[5]

Coulter’s latest iteration of the gospel message of Jesus Christ casts into question her very definition of “evangelical” – a term she has actually applied to herself: “I don’t think the Republicans understand evangelicals. We don’t need to be coddled to constantly.”

Coulter denigrates evangelicals, claiming, “Evangelicals won’t come out in droves for him because he’s not having ecstasies on stage.”[6] She repeated, “You don’t have to have ecstasies on stage to impress a Christian.” Yet again: “You don’t have to have religious ecstasies on stage to get the Christian vote.”

Is that how Coulter views evangelicals?

But Coulter also shockingly implied that Christians don’t have to behave like Christians. She said, “Like the military, you don’t have to observe, you have to respect the military, respect what they do.”

Her words are somewhat confusing, but the implications of her words mirror her defense of Trump’s unchristian behavior: “Some Christians want proof that a candidate has memorized Bible verses. I want a candidate who lives by this verse: ‘So do not be afraid of them.’”[7]

Coulter, again, eschews character and godliness to further her political and ideological agenda. She relegates integrity to the margins and places expediency front-and-center. In doing so, Coulter demonstrates her own faithlessness to not only the principles and doctrines of her faith but to her professed faith itself.

Fruit of the Spirit

Coulter boasts of being a Christian, yet doesn’t act like one. Are we to believe her claims or our eyes?

In Galatians 5:22-23, the apostle Paul describes the character traits of a Christian: “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.”

Coulter appears bereft of the fruit of the Spirit. (Perhaps this is more hyperbole than reality, but then, so is much of Ann’s work.)

Love. If Coulter loves anything, she loves to hate. A master of polemics, vitriol is her passion. Sarcasm – cutting – is her favorite form of humor.

Joy. Coulter appears most joyful when she is in the spotlight (narcissist seeking glory[8]) and when she is emasculating her foes (and they are legion).

Peace. Peace seems to elude Ann. She is well known for her diatribes on matters great and small. (Even soccer filled her heart with rage.)

Longsuffering. The very moment someone steps out of line, Coulter instantly launches into a Twitter tirade. Those tirades are frequent and they are often ugly.

Kindness. Coulter is not particularly well known for her kindness. Indeed, Coulter lacks simple charity.

Goodness. If anti-Semitism, anti-Catholicism, and nativism count as “goodness,” then Coulter is filled to the brim.

Faithfulness. Coulter is renowned for betraying[9] her friends, her clients, her readers, and voters in both local and national elections. Similarly, Coulter betrays the very people of God, attacking their godliness, calling them traitors, and facilitating their martyrdom.

Gentleness. Another spiritual trait lacking in Coulter’s repertoire, gentleness was not to be found for Gold Star Families who are “immigrants.”

Self-control. Coulter’s temper tantrums (on-air, in commentary, and on social media) are inescapable. If Coulter doesn’t get her way – look out! Self-control? No. Control freak?[10] Yes. (The odd thing is, Coulter wants to control everything except herself!)

What has Ann actually accomplished with all of her nonsense? How many lives has she damaged or destroyed? How much damage has Ann done to herself and to those she loves?

The apostle Paul exhorts each of us to focus on what is most important in life: faith, hope, and love. Paul wrote (1 Cor. 13:1-3, emphasis added):

“Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing.”

Coulter sees herself – and more importantly, wants to be regarded – as “an extraordinarily good Christian.” But worldly people are incapable of living a godly life. The fruit of the Spirit is the fruit of the Spirit. The worldly cannot behave in a godly manner.

We expect Coulter to act her age – and she does: 55 (chronologically) and zero (spiritually).

May Jesus touch Ann’s heart this Christmas season and fill her with His love, joy, and peace.

Coulter Doesn’t Trust Trump

Ann Coulter, the author of In Trump We Trust, doesn’t trust Trump.

coulter-doesnt-trust-trump

She never really did.

Coulter has always cared about power and always cared about credit. So much so that she has sought power most of her adult life and claimed credit where it is not due. Coulter is an elite’s elite who loves wielding power.

Her decades-long pattern of behavior continued with her promotion of Donald Trump (and herself).

Coulter, the Bully

First, Coulter browbeat the electorate to vote for Trump, insisting he was the only person who could save America. Now, Coulter bullies, cajoles, and threatens Trump to do what she wants done.

Let’s remember the context. For years, Coulter did the very same thing with Romney. Remember, Coulter was careful to tell Romney that he owed her (personally). Coulter rammed Romney down our throats, promising us that he was the best and would get the job done, all the while warning Romney that he better do that very thing (see Case Study #6, Propaganda: Orwell in the Age of Ann Coulter).

But did Coulter ever trust Trump?

Hardly. Coulter repeatedly told Trump that he’d better do what he promised her he would do because of all the sacrifices she had made for him.

According to The Times, Coulter told Trump, “I’m the only one losing money trying to get you in the White House, you’re going to listen to me.” After Trump’s immigration flip-flop, a piqued Coulter joked, “He just said something stupid, which he’s done before, and he will do again … he does need a little slap now and then.”

Coulter’s face-slaps frequently include Twitter tirades and jeremiads against the only person in the world who can save America (according to her).

Coulter even threatened impeachment against her beloved Savior:  “The wall and deporting illegals … renegotiating trade deals and not starting pointless wars – those are the big ones. If he betrays us on those, they’ll impeach him and there’ll be nobody to defend him.”

Coulter, the Terrified

Coulter is absolutely terrified that she backed the wrong horse, that Trump will prove as unscrupulous as she is, thus jeopardizing what’s left of her own career. Coulter’s fate is inextricably linked to Trump’s.

In her last column in November, Coulter ominously described “How Trump Could Ruin His Presidency.” How? But not doing what Coulter tells him. Coulter succinctly wrote:

“He’d better!”

Also, “But if he breaks a major campaign promise, his supporters will turn on him with a blind ferocity, dwarfing their rage toward Jeb! because Trump’s is the more exquisite con. He will have duped them. And he will never, ever, ever get them back.”

Also, “If Trump betrays voters on immigration, he can have as many rallies as he wants, but Americans will say, Been there, done that — you screwed us. He will never escape the stink of broken campaign promises.”

Finally, “Whether he’s listening or not, his supporters are screaming: TRUMP! NOW! TAKE THE SHOT!!!”

Can you hear Coulter screaming?

Free Republic on Coulter

In the 1990s, members of Free Republic loved Coulter, called her the “goddess of the conservative movement,” and cherished everything she said and did. That has no longer been true for many years.

Here are a few highlights from just one Free Republic thread:

Ann can be NUTS, at times ( look how much she LOVED and pushed for that POS Romney!) and is ALWAYS looking for something to rant about. She does poorly when things are going well.”

“Hannity wanted to know WHY since she has Trump’s ear, she didn’t just call him up and since she knows his closest adviser/team why she just didn’t call them. She sputtered and fumed and then claimed that she had and went back to attacking. Perhaps ‘dear’ Ann isn’t as ‘CONNECTED’ as she claims to be. ;^)”

“I don’t dispute that she’s smart, but I’ll be honest with you and say she has a really grating way about her. If Hillary Clinton is ‘America’s Ex-Wife,’ I’d say Ann Coulter is ‘America’s Ex-Girlfriend.’

She’s being a stupid snowflake….demanding that SHE be allowed to pick Trump’s team; not him. And she just proved, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that she holds NO sway and worse…is NOT ‘in’ with Trump. She’s a damned DRAMA QUEEN and a poser.”

“She is just as world class a troll at generating attention and self-promotion as Trump is. Ann Coulter, first and foremost, is going to do what is in Ann Coulter’s financial interests, she lives by talking head appearances, book sales, social media, web sites, all of which demand promotion and the setting of narratives. Coulter’s tweet means nothing, other than she needs attention. Stop worrying.”

She thinks she is on the inside, but she is on the outside lookin in.”

“Ann, go get your head meds and eat the entire damn bottle.”

“She’s a brilliant writer but…this woman is just scitzo. I don’t know how else to put it.”

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.

Warped Alt-Right Worldview

Alt-Right high priestess Ann Coulter has repeatedly called Gov. Nikki Haley an ignorant “second-generation immigrant.” Has she now extended that verdict to all non-WASPs?

warped-alt-right-worldview

In a recent tweet, Coulter confused a native-born South Carolinian of Indian Sikh ancestry with a Native American.

Apparently one “Indian” looks like another to her. Actually, for the Alt-Right, anyone who is not a WASP is an alien.
