Ann Coulter (Again) Promotes Loony Leftist Attacks on Trump

Trump-deranged Ann Coulter regurgitates anti-Trump propaganda from left-wing sites like the New York Times. Her latest attack commended nonsense from the Le Monde diplomatique, which falsely claimed:

“He lied constantly, even in easily checked public statements. He was a demagogue who only pretended to care about working people. He used the nation’s highest office to enrich himself and his supporters.”

Her Retweet was brief: “Check, check and check.”

FACT CHECK: Wrong, wrong, and wrong.

Remember Coulter’s worst column?

Returning to Coulter’s most recent ludicrous tweet:

The writer, Thomas Frank, vilified every GOP president – a strikingly obvious clue that this was a partisan hit job. Coulter, who has hated Trump for years, fell for it.

Many responses aptly noted the delusional nature of Coulter’s tweet:

“As I read it I thought they were talking about Biden.”

Why such hate ? When I read supposed Intellectuals like this buffoon it becomes even more clear why Trump was elected. I loved the “old Ann” that would go on The Howie Carr Show.”

what happened to you? do the dems have your fbi file or something? what you’ve posted is totally false !!! #thefive

“And somehow, some way, was the greatest President since Ronald Reagan.”

Ann is behaving like a jilted lover. Boring. #unfollow

Sounds more like the Biden family. Trump did more for blue-collar working families in my state than any of the last 3 democrat presidents, and the last couple of Republican residents at the White House (#’s 41 & 43).”

“For all the hair on her chest, who new Ann’s fragile ego couldn’t handle an alpha male with more money than her, who was more effective at dealing with the democrats/liberals that she so claims to loathe. Rather than attack the swamp, she rolled over and became what she despises.”

“I love how people can claim he “enriched himself” when he lost $1.3 billion off his net worth. Ann’s schizophrenic relationship w/ the 45th President continues.”

Stalker Ann can’t stop talking about Trump. She’s still not happy that he didn’t cater to her and give her a job in his administration. He saw right through her. She’s having a hard time with not being Trump’s friend. So sad.”

The article exclusively denigrates GOP presidents. Not a good take to circulate this.”

Coulter’s obsessive hatred for Trump gives aide and comfort to those who want to destroy America. As ever, Coulter is on the wrong side, placing her enmity above the interests of America and the MAGA movement!

.@AnnCoulter Does It Again: Total #TDS – Lies Against Trump

Propagandist Ann Coulter is at it again. Five months after the 2020 election and two months after Biden’s inauguration, Coulter is still lying about Trump, seemingly in an effort to inflict as much damage as possible and destroy any chance of him remaining the de facto leader of the GOP and, more importantly, of the MAGA movement.

Coulter keeps telling the exact same liesover and over and over again – 1) as if they were true and 2) to convince us that they are true. But mere repetition absent proof will never convince any American who voted for him.

Her arguments are neither factual nor rational!

Coulter’s most recent iterations from March 2021:

“Here’s a tip, Democrats: Trump was all talk, no action.” (3/9/21)

But Trump did act!

Trump’s accomplishments are indisputable. Unparalleled peace and prosperity. No new wars. Bringing troops home. Building a wall and curtailing immigration (remain in Mexico policy). Five Nobel Peace Prize nominations. Exposing the Deep State and Fake News Media.[1]

“Even the election of Donald Trump, a ridiculous creature who became president by promising to crack down on illegal immigration and build a wall (promises he ignored), hasn’t put a dent in Washington’s enthusiasm for overwhelming the country with the third world.” (3/17/21)

There she goes again!

Trump did “crack down on illegal immigration and build a wall.”

As for her linguistic sleight of hand at the close of the above sentence, NOTHING will “put a dent in” the Deep State’s “enthusiasm for overwhelming the country with the third world.”

Ironically, Coulter rails against the Biden administration and the border crisis resulting from his policies, but she ignores this crucial fact: Biden reversed Trump’s immigration policies which were working!

Where has Ann been for the last several decades or during the entirety of the Trump administration. Trump was vigorously fighting the Deep State every single day in pursuit of his America First MAGA agenda.[2] Biden embraces the Deep State and globalism.

Americans know all this. Millions more Americans voted for Trump in 2020 than in 2016. Americans know the truth!

Ann Coulter does not.

.@AnnCoulter ‘s Worst Column – EVER!

Ann Coulter’s last column during the Trump presidency is arguably her worst column ever!

Jennifer O’Connell even used Coulter’s essay as representative of the bitter Trumper. O’Connell observed (emphasis added):

“As much as I can translate the stream of consciousness, Coulter is unhappy at Trump’s inaction and his family, among other things. It’s hilarious that she wrote an entire book in 2016: In Trump We Trust: E Pluribus Awesome! and did her usual, dim-witted fangirling on Fox News throughout the campaign and in the first year of his administration. Must have sold a lot of books.”

Now Coulter does her best to malign him and everyone in the administration at every turn, whether it’s over the way he handled border issues, Supreme Court nominations, COVID, or the election challenges. There is nothing that Trump can do to make up for her heartbreak. Coulter acts very much like a jilted lover, except she’s the one that did the jilting.”

In a beautifully-expressed but tragically-deranged column, #TDS-addled Never Trumper Ann Coulter vented her eternal enmity for Donald Trump and his family, and she again attacked Israel and Jews.

Orwellian Ministry of Truth

Coulter’s column was filled with malicious mendacity and a potpourri of petty (phony) polemics. Coulter – a lover of Orwell’s 1984 (a book she re-reads every year) – employs many of Big Brother’s techniques in her own work,[1] and, in this column, goes full-bore Ministry of Truth which the former Soviet Union’s Pravda would applaud!

At times, her words were exquisitely-penned, yet irrational and counter-factual (i.e., Ann lied).

Coulter, Anti-Jew, Anti-Israel

Coulter again launched an attack on Jews and Israel.[2]

Trump Incites Riot!

Coulter even joined the chorus of leftists with another big lie, that Trump incited a riot! Notice her derision toward “gullible” Trump supporters who could be goaded “into criminal activity.” She claimed – without proof – that Trump “unleased” a “mob” and was “delighted” to do so!

How to Ratio an Ann Coulter Tweet – I

Coulter’s tweet about her column was ratio’d – big time! People quickly recognized it as fake news, hogwash, and baloney!

How to Ratio an Ann Coulter Tweet – II

Respondents called Coulter a “crazy maniac” who is “a caustic and toxic influence on American culture and politics.

Coulter’s Projection on Full Display

Coulter has been subject to the forces of addictive thinking for decades: denial, rationalization, and projection to name a few.[3]

Coulter is wrong about this one, too. Indeed, Coulter is engaging in a great deal of projection as she is the one who uses and discards people.[4]

Will Coulter ever see herself for who she really is? Or see reality with clarity? Pray that God remove the blinders and scales from her eyes. Otherwise, she will remain a bitter, angry, old woman.

Joker: Ann Coulter Unplugged provides an in-depth, detailed analysis of Coulter’s worldview and character flaws which have led her to be so wrong in so many areas in which she regards herself as an expert.

Public Resists Coulter’s Resistance Is Futile

Ann Coulter’s latest book, Resistance Is Futile, is classic Coulter. She exhibits her characteristic flair for effectively conveying her point of view. Earlier, I highlighted what Coulter gets right – and wrong in Resistance. Here are more salient observations, many of which you are probably unaware of.

Resistance - Public Resists

Dedicated to Deceased Bodyguard and Lover

Let me begin with what I “knew” about Resistance before it was published. I knew (from the very moment I heard the announcement that she was writing another book) that Coulter would dedicate this book to Floyd Resnick, now deceased. (Her second book, Slander, published in 2002, was dedicated to her deceased former editor, Robert Jones.)

I fully expected Resistance to be dedicated to Resnick, Coulter’s faithful, long-time bodyguard and lover. For a time, Coulter’s speaking contract even required first-class airfare for two. They went everywhere together.

RIP Floyd Resnick

I knew Floyd and, at one CPAC conference many years ago, I saw him lead Ann by the hand through the crowds, displaying a certain casual intimacy.

Resnick died on 11/11/16. In lieu of a public eulogy (or even a tweet), Ann gave him this book dedication.

Failing Book Tour

Coulter’s 13th book was released on August 21st to much fanfare and debuted near the bottom of the New York Times bestseller list (#14), only to precipitously plunge into a black hole the following week.

Her book’s disappointing showing (by Coulter standards) cannot be attributed to media bias as several similarly-themed books appeared higher on that list for longer periods of time.

Her (thus far) failing book tour and abysmal sales may be puzzling to some (my own forthcoming book will shed ample light on many factors for this), especially given Coulter’s energetic efforts to achieve success: two book launch parties; intense promotion from Breitbart, Daily Caller, and other Coulter-friendly news media; two appearances on the Rush Limbaugh Show; several appearances on Tucker Carlson’s highly popular Fox News TV show; and a slew of radio, television and print interviews.

Then there’s Coulter’s own Twitter following of over two million Twitter followers. With over two million followers, one would expect more than a paltry 13,100 books (including preorders) to be sold in the first three weeks (per Bookscan). Do Ann’s followers not like her? Not trust her?

Many Coulter followers don’t trust her because of her past history of lies and deception and her Romney-like shifting political positions.

Coulter’s biggest and most vocal fans support her immigration stand. Many of her fans are fixated upon her, in their words, being “hot.” Some of her biggest detractors are pro-Trumpers outraged at the depth and degree of her attacks on Trump. (It is striking that Trump has yet to comment on Resistance Is Futile.)

By my (albeit unscientific) observations, among her following, Ann has some very ardent admirers, many who are neutral and – to use a journalistically “precise” term – a helluva lot who vehemently hate her. (It is as if they follow her merely to criticize everything she tweets.)

Despite all of the positive factors favoring success, after three weeks, Resistance had sold in the mere tens of thousands. (Her previous book, In Trump We Trust, didn’t even make the bestseller list!)

Her fourth week also saw her fall short of a resurgence on the bestseller list, even though audience members at her speeches (Acushnet, MA, and Concord, NH) “purchased” her book as part of their tickets. (People wanting to meet Ann had to buy her book.)

Coulter on Her Own Book

But what does Coulter say about Resistance?

Resistance - better

Coulter typically boasts that all of her books are blockbusters (even when they’re not even bestsellers) and that her columns are excellent. On the Mark Simone Show (8/16/18), Coulter bragged,

“The chapter titles are excellent and they’re very short chapters with lots of headings because I am part of the Twitter generation. And notice it’s a nice short book. It has a lot of footnotes.”

I was particularly struck by one phrase, “I am part of the Twitter generation,” which is utterly absurd, yet she has repeated it on multiple talk shows, evidently considering it a snappy soundbite. If Coulter is part of a Twitter “generation” – whatever that is – then that “generation” spans scores of years.

Twitter was made for Coulter. She has always been good at quick quips and snappy repartee – thus perfect for Twitter. (Though she is prone to gaffes when tweeting off-the-cuff.)

But, no, she is hardly part of a Twitter “generation” which is largely populated by millennials and Generation Z, but also encompasses people of all ages. There “are over 67 million Twitter users in the U.S.

People using a social media platform who range in age from young children to senior citizens can hardly be called a “generation.” Is Ann trying to recapture her youth? Appear hip? Relevant? Perhaps she is trying to make herself more relevant or appear younger than she really is.

Contents of Resistance

Coulter’s writing is solid, including her trademark penchant for hyperbole, as with her concluding chapter title: “For Democracy to Live, We Must Kill the Media.” (Where’s the guillotine?)

(Presumably, Coulter is referring to the #FakeNewsMedia and not genuine journalism. Is Ann not part of the media? She is unclear as to whether she is targeting the institutions themselves, or the people within those institutions.)

As this table of contents indicates, Coulter addresses the hot issues of the day.

Resistance - TOC

Coulter’s Clever Title

Coulter’s titles are often clever and this one – Resistance is Futile – is no exception. Coulter effectively merges a contemporary political and cultural phenomenon with a well-known pop culture meme from twenty years ago.

Resistance - title

But, as with so many things Coulter, contradictions abound, and, in this case, her title itself proffers confusing ideological optics.

Within her book, Coulter accurately conveys the ultimate end results of the Left’s #Resistance movement while adopting its faulty historical and political precepts.

The Left’s #Resistance movement carefully portrays itself as comparable to and the moral heirs of the French Resistance in World War II, when, in fact, they are the enemies of Liberty, Equality, and Fraternity.

With #ViveLaResistance, Progressives conjure up images of determined French patriots resisting Nazi occupation (think Casablanca) and they infer that America is occupied by Nazi-like GOP leaders pursuing tyrannical control of America.

In Casablanca, Rick Blaine is the reluctant freedom-fighter while Victor Laszlo (not an American) is the courageous leader of the French Resistance. The Left loves Bogart’s character, but, now, have adopted Paul Henreid’s serious, combative, and irrepressible hero as a standard-bearer for their own cause – a cause against which the French Resistance would have ferociously fought.

Similarly, while Coulter’s Resistance is Futile accurately identifies the tyrannical and thuggish behavior – and anti-Liberty, anti-American nature – of the #Resistance, Coulter herself frequently emulates their ideology, behavior, tactics, and rhetoric.

Ironically, Coulter has chosen for the title a slogan beloved by tyrants from antiquity to sci-fi villains of the future (most notably, the Borg).

For today’s Progressives, GOP = Nazi = Borg.

Coulter’s title unconsciously confirms their viewpoint.

Coulter – Borg Queen

Coulter’s clever but contradictory title unwittingly presents herself as the villain (Borg Queen) and the #Resistance as heroic freedom fighters.

The irony of Coulter’s latest book title, Resistance is Futile, can’t escape one’s notice. It is a tyrannical imperative that has rung through the ages, most recently by the Nazis and Soviets (and other Socialists), the aliens of V, and, most memorably, by the Borg in the Star Trek franchise.

Strikingly, the Borg demand assimilation, as American nationalists do, albeit in a decidedly un-American, tyrannical, non-Melting pot paradigm.

Resistance is Futile - Borg

In 2015, Coulter spoke at the Eagle Forum’s Collegiate Summit, saying:

“There was no pussyfooting around. We’re assimilating you, you’re here, and you’re going to be an American. There will be no celebration of Cinco de Mayo, there will be no Ramadan, in fact there won’t even be a Feast of the Immaculate Conception – we are an Anglo-Protestant country, and you will learn about the Battle of Valley Forge.”

Resistance - dog

In Resistance, Coulter addresses very real problems of tyranny, violence, and mob rule on the Left while using a construct to promote her own hive mentality of the Alt-Right.

Coulter Is Part of the Resistance

Another great irony during the Trump presidency thus far is that Coulter has frequently been part of the #Resistance! She has often attacked Trump’s positive agenda (tax cuts, deregulation, and peace through strength, which she describes as commitment “to the Military Industrial Complex). Coulter also frequently raises the specter of impeachment.

Coulter told the Independent Journalism Review, “I would do it all over again. I would write In Trump We Trust all over again. At least he’s saying things. He may not be fully following through and I do have to swat him on the nose with a newspaper every once in a while.”

Resistance - Donnie

To Rush Limbaugh and his audience, Coulter said Trump “has a suck-up personality” and his “presidency is more of a transactional presidency. He does have to be swatted on the nose with a rolled up newspaper when he goes astray.” In other words, Coulter knows best!

Last year, as reported by the Washington Examiner and other media outlets (emphasis added), “Coulter said she and Trump were involved in a profanity-laced screaming match in the Oval Office last year over his immigration policy.” (Coulter claims that Trump “started it.” Still, Ann, it’s not a good approach to win hearts over to your side.)

Resistance - Oval Office

Not to be outdone, on The Next Revolution (9/16/18), Coulter argued, “If the Resistance were smart, they’d read my book and attack Trump for not building the wall.”

Nihilistic Annihilation

The corollary to “You will be assimilated” is the alternative: “You will be annihilated.”

Resistance - annihilated

Coulter has always had a bit of a Borg mindset. In the early 1990s, she wanted to eradicate feminism. Post-9/11, her mantra was “Kill, kill, kill.” In the 2000s, Coulter constantly spoke about how wonderful it would to have a world without liberals. During that same period, she was engaged in a jihad against both liberals and jihadists. Prior to and during the last presidential election cycle, Coulter sought the death of the GOP. (On September 23rd, Coulter’s tweetstorm demanded that we “crush the GOP.”)

Now, Coulter seeks the death of the press: “An essential component of saving the country is absolutely destroying the press. Not a brick upon a brick should remain. Then it can be rebuilt on more ethical lines.” (She fails to make clear distinctions between the #FakeNewsMedia and objective journalism.)

Coulter’s conclusion in Resistance is “We Must Kill the Media.” On The Next Revolution (9/16/18), Coulter pondered, “Maybe we do have to destroy everything first” – something a cultural Marxist would say.

Resistance - We Must Kill The Media

Remember, Coulter has been a canvas-cleanser for most of her adult life.

 

What Ann Coulter Gets Right – and Wrong – in Resistance is Futile!

Coulter’s Resistance Is Futile has just been released. Here are a few observations.

What Coulter gets right – and wrong – in her book

What Coulter Gets Right

This quote encapsulates what is right in Coulter’s book:

“Nothing the Russians ever dreamed of could compare to what the Resistance is doing to democracy, obliterating the will of Trump voters, who wanted him to get to work on urgent problems.”

“It is nothing less than a coup.”

Trump Derangement Syndrome grows daily and hourly, exposing every segment of the Progressive movement for what it is, from politics, to academia, to Hollywood, and the – now blatantly out in the open – #FakeNewsMedia.

Other books have recently (or will soon be) released which tell the very same story.

What Coulter Gets Wrong

Coulter ludicrously contends that the Left hates Donald Trump because he is “icky” – that he is a departure from the debonair and erudite Barack Obama. This is hogwash. If Trump pursued Progressive policies, they would love him.

Far from being squeamish about “icky,” the Left embraces it. Witness Harvey Weinstein, Kathy Griffin, so many of the presenters and awardees at Hollywood events, the Ann Coulter Roast, etc. Remember Michelle Wolf at the National Correspondents Dinner? Truly icky!

Ickiness is part of the Left’s DNA. They merely use charges of ickiness to attack Trump and try to peel off some portion of Middle American support for him.

Icky does not matter to the Left. It didn’t in the 1960s and it doesn’t now. The Left was enthralled with the Clinton presidency. Even now, they want Hillary back. (Ick!)

Throughout her media career, Coulter has conflated style with substance (often preferring the former to the latter) and she continues to do so to this day.

What the Left hates about Trump is his devotion to America, his erasure of the Obama legacy, his opposition to the Progressive agenda and identity politics, and his Making America Great Again.

But the Left can’t say that, so, instead, it says, “Ick!”

Trump stands up for America, not against her. (That is what the Left considers the real “Ick!”)
