Afghanistan Atrocity: Coulter loves AMERICA but hates AMERICANS!

Biden’s debacle in Afghanistan has revealed something stunning: Ann Coulter loves America but hates Americans.

Biden calls his exit strategy an “extraordinary success” and Coulter agrees with him!

Moreover, Coulter repeatedly lauds Biden’s ignominious retreat from Kabul as good, necessary, and brilliantly executed … all the while blaming Trump for not getting out of Afghanistan. (Ann must have loved the Bay of Pigs!)

Here are some Coulter tweets. (Her column last week was about why we should have gotten out of Afghanistan years ago, but she did not address the lunacy of how we left!)

“The country has gone mad. I need a button on Twitter to mute tweets about Afghanistan. I DON’T CARE.”

In response to reports that Afghan Christians are facing a reign of terror by the Taliban, Coulter tweeted:

So are California Christians.”

Are california christians being tortured, beheaded, and burned to death?

“IT’S LIKE SAIGON! TAHRIR SQUARE! THE IRANIAN REVOLUTION! But Kabul is safe enough for these two idiots to fly in on a “fact-finding” mission.”

“Instead of comparing 12 U.S. servicemen killed in Afghanistan vs. 4 killed in Niger, how about a word for the 49 Americans slaughtered in ORLANDO by the son of an Afghan immigrant?’

It [Biden’s] was a magnificent speech for anyone not blinded by partisan politics or obsessed with sending Americans to die in forever wars all over the world.”

“Thank you, President Biden, for keeping a promise Trump made, but then abandoned when he got to office.”

“Trump REPEATEDLY demanded that we bring our soldiers home, but only President Biden had the balls to do it.”

Coulter is effectively a White House spokesperson parroting White House talking points and propagandistic narratives.

Coulter’s Apathy

As the chaos in Kabul was unfolding, Coulter explicitly stated, “I DON’T CARE.” Later, Coulter lauded Biden for what was transpiring in Kabul. The death of 13 Americans elicited not one word of outrage or sympathy from Coulter. When Biden abandoned hundreds of Americans and perhaps thousands of Afghan allies to the whims of the Taliban, Coulter again praised Biden.

Coulter explicitly expressed apathy about genuine reports of Afghan Christians facing a “reign of terror.” I guess that Coulter is an “extraordinarily good Christian” like Biden’s retreat was an “extraordinary success.”

In the Real World

Rudyard Kipling observed, “Nothing is ever settled unless it is settled right.” THIS was not settled right and will ensure that terrorism is ascendant for a long time to come.

Combat veteran Pete Hegseth warned,

“What we’ve done is legitimize a terrorist state and given them the best equipment in the world.”

Rep. John Kennedy (R-LA) called Biden’s disastrous defeat in Kabul,

“It was the biggest terrorist victory since 9/11.”

CNN’s Clarissa Ward asked,

“If this isn’t failure, what does failure look like?”

The fall of Kabul, in the spectacularly inept and bizarre way it fell, was a monumental catastrophe with seismic geopolitical ramifications as great, or greater than, the fall of the Berlin Wall and collapse of the Soviet Union.

But this time, the forces of Darkness – not Liberty – are prevailing.

Who will ever believe us, trust us, or fear us again? Can the United States be victorious against tyranny and terrorism, or has Biden's blunder doomed our future?

One thing’s for sure: Ann Coulter doesn’t care.

Ann Coulter: From Jingoist to Pacifist

In the space of a few short years, Coulter turned from being a neoconservative zealot to a Fortress America fanatical isolationist and pacifist.

Her current isolationist and nativist obsession with “pointless wars” in foreign lands leads her inevitably to conclude that World War II was also a pointless war.

Coulter’s foreign policy heart lies with that of one of her mentors, Patrick Buchanan.

During the Clinton presidency, Coulter continually denounced the administration’s use of military force overseas, arguing that it was not in our national interest.

In 1997, Coulter said, “I don’t think we should be trying to go around and be the world’s Policeman because you can guess wrong. I mean, we can’t create a beautiful constitutional democracy across the world.”[1]

Bur for fully a decade following 9/11, Coulter was the fiercest armchair war hawk in America. Toward the end of the Obama presidency, Coulter reversed course, returning to her Buchananite foreign policy roots. (She could easily join the “War Is Not the Answer” crowd if it were more pro-American.)

Once a zealous moral and cultural conservative and fervently pro-life – “There’s almost no conversation I couldn’t turn into an abortion discussion.”[2]Coulter turned her back on the unborn for most of the past two decades. Instead, the political realm possessed Coulter, and, following 9/11, Coulter attacked everyone.

My first essay critical of Coulter in BrotherWatch (January 2002) began with these words:

Following the 9/11 terrorist attack, controversial “conservative” columnist Ann Coulter – best known as that “acid-tongued blonde” wearing her trademark micro mini-skirts – appeared to descend into madness. Cutting edge went over the edge. Coulter declared a two-front war against terrorists and liberals. – Right Wing Warrior Princess

Coulter’s stance on the Korean Peninsula is emblematic of her approach to geopolitics. She also hates our pro-Israel policies and would just as well jettison the War on Terror completely. (Coulter always frames terrorist threats as immigration threats,[3] having absolutely no solutions to the domestic threat posed by ISIS and ISIS-inspired terrorists currently in America.)[4]

Of course, her Fortress America paradigm blindly dismisses the very real and existential threats facing America today and in the near future posed by terrorists and tyrannical, America-hating regimes around the world.

Coulter now denounces the Reagan Doctrine’s formulation of “peace through strength” and she appears oblivious to the renaissance of peace and prosperity which Americans enjoy today – due to Trump’s emulation of Reagan’s proven policies.

Coulter’s single-minded fixation with immigration and a wall has given her a myopic perspective on reality and the world in which we live. She has tunnel vision – like a horse with blinders on – and is oblivious to anything which does not fit her own pet paradigm.

As is always the case, anyone who disagrees with her perspective and agenda is a traitor or evil – even though she herself has completely reversed many of her positions over the past two decades. (At one point or another, she could have called herself a traitor.)

Coulter went berserk over Trump’s visit to the Wailing Wall:

On the eve of Trump’s major prime time national address regarding a national crisis on our southern border, Coulter reversed her position, issuing a series of nonsensical tweets attacking President Trump.

The following chart encapsulates a few of Coulter’s transitions and key transformative periods during Coulter’s professional career as a “journalist.”

Joker: Ann Coulter Unplugged provides an in-depth, detailed analysis in this holistic exposé of how and why Coulter has become such a warped human being.

Joker addresses the physical, mental, emotional, psychological, familial, sexual, and spiritual dimensions which have shaped the Ann Coulter that we know today and it highlights both the positives and the negatives of Coulter’s life and career.

Ann’s brokenness provides an object lesson for all of us and, hopefully, this book will act as an intervention to help Ann face her deep brokenness and motivate her to seek healing and restoration.
