RIP John V. Coulter

Ann Coulter’s world fell apart when her parents died: Father in 2008, Mother in 2009. Though their passing was long anticipated, one can never fully prepare for the death of loved ones. Their absence remains a deep void in Ann’s life.

As Ann put it, “Your parents are your whole world when you are a child. You only recognize what is unique about them when you get older and see how the rest of the world diverges from your standard of normality.”

Her parents were Ann’s moral compass. From them, she derived her set of personal values, moral standards, political views, and religious beliefs. Since their passing, Ann has haphazardly abandoned those values, standards, views, and beliefs.

In 2008, the family patriarch – John V. Coulter – passed away. With his passing, Ann lost a sense of safety, security, and stability. Daddy passed away after years of declining health from dementia, a tragic and traumatic time for the whole family.

In her eulogy, Ann provided poignant personal anecdotes but also exploited her father’s memory to attack liberals and defend herself.

Ann wrote:

“John Vincent Coulter was of the old school, a man of few words, the un-Oprah, no crying or wearing your heart on your sleeve, and reacting to moments of great sentiment with a joke. Or as we used to call them: men. …

“He hated unions because of their corrupt leadership, ripping off the members for their own aggrandizement. But he had more respect for genuine working men than anyone I’ve ever known. He was, in short, the molecular opposite of John Edwards. …

“Of course, toward the end, he probably didn’t even remember he was a Catholic. But on the bright side, he didn’t remember that Teddy Kennedy was a Catholic, either. …

Within her moving eulogy, Ann repeatedly attacked liberals and concluded with a wish that liberals be smited: “Now Daddy is with Joe McCarthy and Ronald Reagan. I hope they stop laughing about the Reds long enough to talk to God about smiting some liberals for me.”

One blogger was inspired to pen this poem:

Now I lay me down to sleep,

I pray the Lord my Dad to keep;

I also ask liberals He kill,

What I can’t do, I pray God will.

Ann’s words – and the blogger’s interpretation of those words – suggest that Ann is unfamiliar with basic Christianity: our Father in heaven is a God of love who gave His only Son to save and redeem the lost and the broken (John 3:16).

May God grant healing in the deepest recesses of Ann’s heart. May He bring Ann’s internal compass into alignment with the North Star of Jesus Christ. And may His grace and peace be upon her.

Coulter’s Ghastly Eulogy

True to form, Coulter politicized her eulogy for M. Stanton Evans.[1] Coulter turned the loss of a colleague she has known for two decades, someone she has suggested was a mentor, and used it to further her own personal and political agenda.

EvansEulogy

Coulter has a very long history of doing just that.[2]

Her lead paragraph quoted Evans on immigration, Coulter’s current cause célèbre.

Coulter then spends more time talking about Reagan, Romney,[3] immigration, and McCarthy than she does about the subject of her eulogy.

And, she throws in an attack on CPAC: “(This was back when CPAC mattered.)”[4]

Remember, CPAC was integral to Evans’ life, yet Coulter churlishly and vindictively attacked his institutional love.

Coulter remains insistent that Romney can win the presidency, again comparing him to Reagan:

“Reagan ran for president a third time, won the presidency and saved the country.” (Coulter noted that Evans was wrong to reject Reagan!)

Lest we fail to grasp her advocacy for Romney, she added:

“(One thing you must always remember, right-wingers: Never run the same guy for president three times. Look how that turned out!)”

Of course, Evans’ defense of Joseph McCarthy lavished attention on Coulter, who mentioned:

“Stan gave me a few teaser documents for my book Treason: Liberal Treachery from the Cold War to the War on Terrorism,[5] which liberals denounced on the grounds that I wore short skirts and also that it was insufficiently ‘scholarly.’”

Lengthy sections on Reagan, Romney, and Coulter’s pet issues, but scant mention of Evans’ life, work, and legacy.

Coulter concluded: “Two weeks ago, he told me not to give up. And neither should you, America.”[6]

Perhaps it’s time we gave up on Ann.
