When Will Conservatives Reject Coulter’s Anti-Semitism?

Ann Coulter tweeted: “Where are the Bernie supporters tonight? Did Hillary have them gassed?

Reject Coulter's Anti-Semitism

Coulter has a long history of anti-Semitism, stretching back to at least the early 1990s. In the wake of her Effing Jews tweets, Coulter claimed to be pro-Semitic, employing arguments worthy of an Orwellian dictator. Coulter even enlisted the aid of her conservative friends to prove her noble and just. Those efforts abysmally failed. Her Orwellian newspeak and doublethink was exposed for what it is.

Then Coulter went after Catholics. Now she has retargeted her preferred object of hatred: Jews.

Why attack Jews and Catholics? Because they do not fit into her utopian dream of a restored WASP nation. Coulter is ecstatic over Trump’s transformation of the GOP into a new Know-Nothing Party which is anti-immigrant, anti-Catholic, and anti-Jew.

The Alt-Right and David Duke have eagerly embraced Donald Trump and his (and Coulter’s) message.

Will conservatives join the Never Trump movement and denounce this latest instance of anti-Semitism by Trump’s consigliere?

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.

Wrong and Foolish

Following Donald Trump’s seismic electoral victory and the Republican rout at all levels of government, Alt-Right propagandist Ann Coulter tweeted: “1928 was last time Republicans had the White House, the House and the Senate.

Not quite. Coulter’s tweet is factually wrong and foolishly composed.

wrong-and-foolish

Did she sleep through the George W. Bush years (2003-2006), when he had both a Republican House and Senate? (Perhaps Ann forgot about the presidency part of that equation given her current hatred for Bush, the president she once adored in her neoconservative phase.)

As for foolishness, it is surely foolhardy to remind Americans (and the world) that Republicans ruled when the Great Depression emerged.

Strikingly, the Alt-Right agenda – which Coulter extols and Trump apparently will pursue – includes protectionism and trade wars which exacerbated the Great Depression.

But this isn’t the first time Coulter has made an arse (a good Anglo-Saxon word) of herself with regards to the Great Depression.

Great Depression = Unparalleled Prosperity

During her Adios, America! book tour, Coulter repeatedly claimed,

“From 1924 to 1965, the United States of America virtually stopped all immigration – the most prosperous period in American history. That’s when we developed into a country with this massive, wealthy middle class.”

Putting it another way, Coulter asserted, “For example, in the twenties, 1924, basically a total moratorium for the next 40 years. It was the most prosperous period of American history.”

Somehow, Coulter forgot all about the Great Depression!

She also forgot about the historic economic boom under Ronald Reagan – a period of time during which she lived and experienced firsthand. (Perhaps Coulter’s amnesia stems from her tendency to diminish Reagan’s stature in order to elevate that of her present-day idols, first Romney, then Trump.)

Michael Novak highlighted what Coulter dismisses: the unparalleled prosperity brought about by the leadership of Ronald Reagan. Novak wrote:

“Following the economic ‘malaise’ bemoaned by President Carter, President Reagan changed the country’s direction dramatically. He ended the oil shortage, brought interest rates down by two-thirds, spurred the creation of 16 million new jobs, and put a higher proportion of American adults to work than ever before in history. Under Reagan, the American economy added to its wealth the equivalent of the whole economy of West Germany. This American boon lasted another 20 years after Reagan, through Democratic and Republican administrations. Reagan pointed out that government bureaucrats do not put more citizens to work; millions of new business startups do. He gave priority to sparking business startups.”

Coulter prides herself on her “fanatical” (her word) research. Perhaps she needs more research and less fanaticism.

Coulter’s Genetic Superiority

Donald Trump’s ascendancy to the presidency gives legitimacy to – and greatly empowers – the Alt-Right.

its-in-the-genes

Ensconced in the White House, the nativist Alt-Right will seek to transform America into its own image.

In a stunning interview with Iain Dale of Britain’s LBC, Coulter claimed that “We’re a colony of yours.”

Coulter then asserted, “Most of us have a lot of British ancestry.” Coulter amplified what she regards as a “special relationship” with Britain that, “of course our two countries are very similar in culture, I mean, down to the genes.” (For years, Coulter has entertained the notion of WASP superiority – at a genetic level.)

It is not surprising that the high priestess of the Alt-Right lauds Trump’s decision to elevate Alt-Right guru Stephen Bannon as his chief strategist. Coulter told Howie Carr, “I think it’s quite brilliant.” She added, “I’m very impressed with Trump and this decision.”

Of course she is. In the end, Coulter and the Alt-Right seek to remake America into a white, WASP nation. Hence their obsession with race.

Coulter’s Nativism Glaringly Obvious

Nativist Ann Coulter is the high priestess of the Alt-Right and arguably Donald Trump’s most senior advisor.

coulters-nativism-glaringly-obvious

Coulter’s tweets, on the eve of the election, decisively demonstrate both her nativism and her lack of logic.

Ann Coulter (10:42 p.m.): If only people with at least 4 grandparents born in America were voting, Trump would win in a 50-state landslide.

Coulter’s argument is entirely race-based. She desires racial homogeneity. She has long sought to restore a (white) WASP America.

Erin McCormick (11:09 p.m.): “At LEAST four grandparents” it’s physically impossible to have more than four though?

Confronted with a linguistic error, Coulter proffered her own explanation of the meaning of “is.”

Ann Coulter (11:12 p.m.): There’s 8 great grandparents, 16 great-great grandparents, etc.

Yes, she explained what she meant of tweet. Her explanation further solidifies her intent toward racial (white) homogeneity.

witch docta (11:13 p.m.): Trump couldn’t even vote for himself because his mother was born in Scotland you past-ripe banana lookin bitch

Confronted with a quandary arising because Trump himself is a second-generation immigrant, Coulter claimed that fact to be irrelevant.

Ann Coulter (11:24 p.m.): So what? You are like “Politifact,” citing irrelevancies as if they detract from blinding truth of my statement.

What is the “blinding truth of” her original tweet? That real Americans – those who ancestors date back several generations as native-born Americans – would vote Trump, who “would win in a 50-state landslide.”

First, “real Americans” wouldn’t vote for Trump, a candidate who eschews the Constitution, the rule of law, Christianity, and American principles and ideals.

Second, Trump – and Trump alone – is the only “Republican” presidential candidate who could possibly lose to Hillary Clinton.

Great Wall of Trump Crumbles

The Donald’s “Great Wall of Trump” was a lie from the beginning, a clever marketing ploy to tap in to the legions of Americans who are deeply concerned about America’s national sovereignty and her obeisance to the open borders lobby.

great-wall-of-trump-crumbles

Nevertheless, this huckster succeeding in grasping the GOP nomination based on lies.

Trump will not erect an impenetrable wall to stop illegal immigration.

Trump will not oppose amnesty.

We knew those two truths before the GOP Convention.

David French put it well: “There’s the bizarre wall fantasy, as if we’re going to get – for free! – some combination of the Great Wall of China and the Maginot Line on our southern border.”

Final Presidential Debate

The Great Wall of Trump is, like the Statue of Liberty, symbolic. It symbolizes the substance of the debate over national identity, national sovereignty, border control, and amnesty.

And, like Trump himself, it is a sham.

In the final 2016 presidential debate, Trump started out strong, definitively declaring, “We need strong borders. We need absolute – we cannot give amnesty.”

Then, moments later, Trump rambling equivocation should give his supporters pause (emphasis added):

“Now, I want to build the wall. We need the wall. And the Border Patrol, ICE, they all want the wall. We stop the drugs. We shore up the border. One of my first acts will be to get all of the drug lords, all of the bad ones – we have some bad, bad people in this country that have to go out. We’re going to get them out; we’re going to secure the border. And once the border is secured, at a later date, we’ll make a determination as to the rest. But we have some bad hombres here, and we’re going to get them out.”

So, Trump pledges to “secure the border” and get the “bad hombres” out (the “drug lords”) and, “at a later date,” figure out what to do with the rest. Sounds a lot like amnesty and a lot like an insecure border.

Shifting Goal Posts

Ann Coulter famously championed Trump for his alleged Great Wall of Trump and his alleged “mass deportation” of millions of illegal aliens.

Responding to the Hollywood Reporter’s question – “What’s the top thing you like about Trump? – Coulter replied:

“In this order: Immigration, immigration, immigration, flagrantly violates all the rules of political correctness, immigration, no more pointless wars, will bring back manufacturing, immigration and immigration.”

Coulter was so cocksure of herself that she declared, “If there’s one thing we’re going to get out of a Trump presidency, it’s a wall.”

In her book, Coulter confided, “Until the bleeding has stopped, there’s nothing Trump can do that won’t be forgiven. Except change his immigration policies.”

That’s exactly what Trump started to do.

On the very day her hagiography of Trump was published, the Trump campaign began its reversal of his immigration policy positions.

Heather Wilhelm noted, “Trump appears to be breezily selling out his stances on Coulter’s favorite policy topics – those would be immigration and mass deportation – on the very week of her ‘In Trump We Trust’ book release.”

Wilhelm continued, “Trump has spent the last week – again, the week of Coulter’s book release! – signaling there’s no way he’s going to deport 12 million illegal immigrants,” telling Sean Hannity that illegals would have to “pay back taxes.”

Trump explained to Hannity, “But when I go through and I meet thousands and thousands of people on this subject, and I’ve had very strong people come up to me, really great, great people come up to me, and they’ve said, ‘Mr. Trump, I love you, but to take a person who’s been here for 15 or 20 years and throw them and their family out, it’s so tough, Mr. Trump,’ I have it all the time! It’s a very, very hard thing.”

As reported in New York Magazine, Coulter quickly expressed the first two stages of grief: denial and anger. In fact, she experienced all five stages in little more than one day.

In denial, Coulter told Extra TV: “I don’t think he really did [soften his immigration position]. He just said something stupid, which he’s done before, and he will do again… he does need a little slap now and then. But no, his policy is to put Americans first on everything. If he does that, he’s fine.”

But Coulter rapidly moved on to the final stage of grief – acceptance. Coulter said, “If [Trump] got rid of deporting illegals altogether, which he is not, it would still be better than any Republican who has run for president in my lifetime.” (Didn’t Ronald Reagan run for president in her lifetime?)

Coulter told the Washington Examiner, “The policy is anyone who’s here illegally is here illegally, does not have the right to be here. We’ll decide whether it’s in our best interest to let them stay or not. Perhaps it is in our interest to let some of them stay.”

So much for mass deportation.

And the wall.

Trump’s magnificent wall was a fraud from the beginning. Indeed, he stole some of his ideas from his biggest rival, Sen. Ted Cruz.

Trump’s own Op-Ed from 2013 refutes his recently manufactured respect for American sovereignty. Trump wrote:  “We will have to leave borders behind and go for global unity when it comes to financial stability.” Sounds an awful lot like Hillary’s “My dream is a hemispheric common market, with open trade and open borders.”

Trump continued: “The future of Europe, as well as the United States, depends on a cohesive global economy. All of us must work toward together toward that very significant common goal.”

Amnesty, yes. Wall, no.

Trump Brought Amnesty Back to Life

Just as his entire presidential campaign can be reasonably interpreted as a sham to give the presidency to Hillary, so, too, his hostile opposition to amnesty appears to have been counterproductive, perhaps purposely so.

Red State’s Neil Stevens spotted a disturbing trend. Looking at Fox News polls from July 2010 to the present, Stevens discovered a dramatic shift in support for amnesty.

According to Stevens, “in July 2010, amnesty was only up 4 points, 49-45.” When Trump launched his campaign, the pro-amnesty cohort gained momentum: “64-30.” What about now? Stevens noted, “In the newest Fox poll, Amnesty’s lead has increased by 22 points since Trump’s campaign launched and now leads by an amazing 74-18 supermajority.”

Stevens concluded:

“Donald Trump’s core campaign issue is to boot the Mexicans out, but over the course of his campaign, nearly half the people who used to support deportations no longer do so. Amnesty has taken an overwhelming lead of support. This is why Republicans are losing: they’ve picked a loser of a candidate who is driving people away.”

Coulter’s Beyoncé Blunders

Ann Coulter stuffed so much nonsense into just one tweet that she enraged Beyoncé fans and kicked reason and decency in the head.

coulters-beyonce-blunders

Coulter’s tweet:

“Beyonce, cited by Michelle Obama as role model for her daughters, sings about ‘pussy curvalicious, served delicious.’ Oh my. I just fainted.”

Sarcasm notwithstanding, Coulter was wrong on the singer, mangled the lyrics, offered a tortured interpretation of those lyrics, and confused sexual assault with a provocatively poetic expression of consensual sex in marriage.

Coulter was as wrong as wrong can be. Again.

  • Coulter cited the wrong singer. The lyrics were rapped by Nicki Minaj, not Beyoncé.
  • Coulter mangled the lyrics. Coulter transposed the first two words, mutilating the rhythm of the rhyme. The actual lyrics are: “Curvalicious, pussy served delicious.”
  • Coulter tortured the interpretation of those lyrics. Defending Trump from allegations of sexual assault, Coulter missed the significance of consensual sex in those lyrics. As reported by Mediaite: “By referring to her privates as something being ‘served,’ Minaj is, in effect, giving her partner her consent, which a woman being grabbed ‘by the pussy’ by a famous man has not done.”
  • Coulter equated sexual talk with sexual assault. Intent upon absolving Trump of guilt for gloating over grabbing women “by the pussy,” Coulter spotlights the word “pussy” (a word she herself frequently uses). However, as Mediaite also observes, “most of Trump’s detractors are not as outraged by the word ‘pussy’ as they are by Trump telling Billy Bush that famous men can get away with grabbing women by the pussy.” It’s assault, not talk!
  • Coulter concluded by mocking Trump’s victims. “Oh my. I just fainted.” No! Innocent women have been sexually assaulted by a rich, powerful, and famous man. Coulter was and remains aghast over Bill Clinton’s treatment of women, yet rushes to Trump’s defense over similar charges.

For Coulter, this is all about ideology, not reality. It is about power, not morality. It is about winning an election, not doing the right thing. Apparently, the end really does justify the means to these people.

John O’Sullivan writes:

“In 2001, before anyone saw the Donald as a presidential aspirant, I wrote a critique in National Review of his interviews with Howard Stern in which he discussed women in terms I thought ungallant. My attack wasn’t political, even though Trump was then a Democrat, but its message was sternly disapproving. … Those interviews (which were on the record) were not very different from the notorious videotape. They were vulgar, crass, shameless, and silly sexual boasting – the kind of thing (second only to intrusive women sports reporters) that prompts me to avoid locker rooms. Above all, however, they were known about and readily available.”

Now that the pussy’s out of the bag, so to speak, Trump’s cadre of female shills have turned truth upside down to salvage what remains of Trump’s reputation. Coulter’s Beyoncé tweet is emblematic of those unsavory efforts.

Free book: Propaganda: George Orwell in the Age of Ann Coulter

Free book: Propaganda: George Orwell in the Age of Ann Coulter exposes Coulter as the quintessential propagandist who, especially this election cycle, has escalated her employment of various propaganda techniques to foist a monumentally flawed candidate upon the American people.

Trump has, indeed, adopted Coulter’s agenda, one which he would never pursue were he to win the election.

Heralding Trump as “Awesome” defames America’s roots and self-identity and besmirches all those who champion American exceptionalism and a constitutional Republic.
