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.

For greater insight into Ann Coulter’s worldview and thought processes see Case Study: From Jingoist to Pacifist in Joker: Ann Coulter Unplugged at https://bit.ly/2TttHtF.

Ann Coulter: “Let Them All Die!”

Instead of saying, “Let them eat cake,” polemicist Ann Coulter has effectively said, “Let them be killed, tortured, and raped.”

The fall of Kabul over the weekend is obscenely worse than the fall of Saigon in 1975, yet Coulter lauds Biden’s botched pullout from Afghanistan and berates Trump for not doing the same.

Does the horrific chaos not intrude upon Coulter’s conscience or touch her heart?

What transpired over the weekend is grotesque! And the worst is yet to come.

But, according to Baghdad Babs, “everything is going swimmingly in Afghanistan.”

Coulter tweeted:

“Once Osama was killed, the American people wanted us out. President Obama wanted us out. Trump promised to get us out … But generals (the WORST) and military contractors wanted us to stay forever, so we did.” 8/15/21

Coulter had to attack Trump, not realizing the utter catastrophic nature of Biden’s debacle.

Tens of thousands of AMERICANS are trapped in Afghanistan. Hundreds of ISIS terrorists have been released from prison. The Taliban has not only seized the nation, but taken our Blackhawk helicopters and sophisticated American weaponry.

And they are chanting, “Death to America.”

But Coulter feels compelled to celebrate as she feels safe in her isolationist cocoon.

Coulter also tweeted:

“We didn’t lose! We won the war in about 3 weeks, hung around for another decade to get Osama, and then stayed for another 10 years FOR NO NATIONAL SECURITY PURPOSE WHATSOEVER. (But military contractors got rich and generals got more ribbons!)” 8/15/21

Here’s one very pertinent response highlighting Coulter’s failure to grasp foreign policy and its implications for America First:

“In 20 years we had few terrorist attacks on our turf. And zero under Trump once he obliterated ISIS. Now you’re gonna have China and Russia supporting the Taliban. But I’m sure this can only be good for us, especially now that we have a open border.”

A small American troop presence in Afghanistan kept America safer.

Another respondent made this point:

“The usual Ann Coulter schtick: maintaining comedic effect at the expense of reflective thought. This President Trump-hater has lost the entire point of her boy, Joe Biden’s, disgrace in Afghanistan. “America risks being seen as harmless as an enemy, and treacherous as a friend.”

Exactly right! Trump kept America safe and even brokered numerous Middle East peace deals, which Coulter despised. Why? Did she hate the name: The Abraham Accords? Trump was a peace and prosperity president. Biden is a chaos president, and Coulter prefers Biden!

Quadrupling down, Coulter tweeted:

“How about: Thank you, President Biden for fulfilling one of Trump’s many broken promises by FINALLY ending the pointless war in Afghanistan.” 8/15/21

This was a humiliating travesty for America, a strategic blunder, and will be a moral stain on America for generations. Who will trust us now?

Who will trust Ann Coulter now?

Posting a video of hordes of Afghans striving to escape Afghanistan (many would cling to the planes and fall to their deaths), Coulter commented:

“Isn’t this the opening scene in “Camp of the Saints”?” 8/16/21

Coulter – gloating in chaos and death!

In response to Sen. Tim Cotton’s call to “destroy every Taliban fighter” near Kabul (perfectly feasible since they were all together in one location), Coulter riposted:

“Why not “every bad person in the whole wide world”?” 8/16/21

Making light of the chaos and dramatically-amplified threat to America, Coulter asserted that Tropical Storm Fred is more important:

“This is of far more importance than anything happening in Afghanistan.” 8/16/21

The Taliban NOW is more dangerous than they were THEN! They have routed America and have weaponry beyond what they could have ever imagined. Afghanistan will become a magnet for every jihadist who wants to destroy America and Western Civilization!

Coulter also tweeted:

“Every minute we were in Afghanistan after killing Osama bin Laden in 2011 was a betrayal of America.” 8/16/21

One person stated the obvious:

“We’re still in Japan and Germany 75 years later.”

We also still have troops in South Korea and other strategic places around the world – all with good results.

Now, the terrorists have a place to call home as they make their plans to attack us here in America. Brilliant, Ann.

But reality still escapes Coulter’s notice. She tweeted:

“The only thing I want to hear the president address is the ongoing crisis at our border, Covid pouring in and the unprecedented murder rampage in America. The idea that Americans on on tenterhooks about “WHITHER AFGHANISTAN” is absurd.” 8/16/21

Ann loves using the word “tenterhooks” when she is upset.

Has Coulter forgotten? There are still thousands of Americans in danger in Afghanistan. Yes, of course we should care. Feckless Biden warns them to exercise caution; Trump would be doing something constructive.

Coulter, again, sidestepped the historic catastrophe still unfolding in Afghanistan by attacking Republicans for wanting to launch an investigation into this colossal blunder of epic proportions. Coulter tweeted:

“How about an investigation of his border strategy? (There’s something mentally wrong with elected Republicans.)” 8/16/21

For Coulter, the only thing that matters is the border and immigration. Isn’t it funny, Trump came up with many great solutions (which Biden undid), yet Coulter keeps attacking Trump and not Biden.

Coulter is aghast that Trump would seek to keep America’s commitment to America-loving Afghan interpreters who faced death to help America. Coulter tweeted:

“Wow. Will THIS finally wake up the few remaining Trump loyalists? Does he have to fly them here himself? Send care packages to the border?” 8/17/21

I guess, now, Ann doesn’t believe in keeping promises?

Exploding is anger at the suggestion that a properly planned and carried out exit strategy would have been preferable to what Biden did, Coulter shouted:

“OH MY GOSH! THE TALIBAN COULD HAVE BEEN HELD OFF FOR ANOTHER TWO WEEKS!” 8/17/21

What prompted Coulter’s ire? This tweet from a friend of hers:

“He abandoned the airbase, had no contingency plan to get Americans out, ignored intelligence agencies, prevented contractors from helping the Afghan airforce, and cut off the Afghan military from intelligence or support.”

Exhibiting total ignorance of the terror threat posed by Taliban and ISIS, Coulter absurdly tweeted:

“They’re happy the way things are. Why can’t we leave them alone? 99% of Afghans support sharia as official law.” 8/18/21

Of course, with armed Taliban leaders posing the question, the people replied logically, though not necessarily accurately.

For over a decade, Coulter has dismissed terrorist threats (focusing exclusively on immigration). Coulter asked, “Why can’t we leave them alone?” Because they won’t leave us alone!

Remember, they continue to chant, “Death to America!”

Nevertheless, Coulter remains utterly obsessed with Trump, tweeting:

“It’s hilarious how Trump has aggressively turned against all the issues that got him elected president.” 8/18/21

Coulter can’t stop herself!

Coulter has proven to be the Left’s secret weapon against America.

Astonishingly, Coulter posted her weekly column several hours early and it was devoted to praising Biden for his betrayal of Afghanistan. Here are a few excerpts:

“President Biden ended the war in Afghanistan earlier this week, fulfilling the broken promises of the last three presidents, whereupon both the liberal and conservative media rose up as one to shout: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Sorry, Ann, but Biden did not “end” the war. He capitulated. The enemy is still at war with us! And, now, they are better armed!

“Now Biden has done it. It’s our country’s good fortune that our president is too senile to be outmaneuvered by the generals as Bush, Obama and Trump were.”

Who is senile: Biden or Coulter?

“At this rate, maybe he’ll build the wall.”

Magical thinking does not work, Ann.

“On Monday, Biden gave the best presidential address in recent memory — a full-throated, America-First statement of our interests. ‘I want to remind everyone,’ he began, ‘how we got here and what America’s interests are in Afghanistan.'”

In her diatribe against Trump and all those who condemn the chaos sparked by Biden’s reckless and self-serving action, Coulter completely ignores that very real chaos which will continue, dismisses the plight of Afghan interpreters (and Christians), and has not a single word to say about the multitude of AMERICANS trapped in Afghanistan.

How can you be America First if you willingly jeopardize the lives of American citizens?

Apocalyptic @AnnCoulter Screams Doomsday in Midst of American Renaissance

In the midst of an American Renaissance,[1] apocalyptic Ann Coulter heralds the end of days.

This she has done for two decades.

In the 2000 election, Coulter declared that a Gore victory would lead to Armageddon. In 2004, she claimed a Kerry victory would spell doom for America. Coulter tepidly endorsed McCain in 2008 (Get Drunk and Vote for McCain), although Romney was her true love for close to a dozen years.

In an interview for Amazon, Coulter said, “Insofar as the survival of the Republic is threatened by the election of John Kerry, I’d say 2004 is as big as it gets.”

Why? Post-9/11, terrorism was Coulter’s cause célèbre for over a decade.[2]

But over the past five years, Coulter has claimed that immigration is the only issue that matters! Why? For two reasons: Racial demographic changes would make whites a minority in America and Democrats would rule forever.

Trump has already blown away Coulter’s second contention: He has routed the Democrats[3] and thoroughly exposed their extremism to everyone.[4]

As for her first contention, what difference does it make? To a racist WASP like Ann, it is the most crucial measure of America and American identity.[5]

So, Coulter’s singular concern is implementing a moratorium on legal immigration, stopping illegal immigration, and building a wall.[6]

Once an anti-terrorism hawk, Coulter is now a dove, blithely dismissing the threat of ISIS at home and abroad.

On the Eric Metaxas Show (10/11/19), Coulter said that America had a 50% chance of survival when Trump was elected but now it is only one percent!

She was more graphic speaking to the New York Post:

Like her kindred spirit, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez,[7] Coulter is a provocative and hyperbolic doomsayer.

No wonder President Trump nicknamed Coulter a #WackyNutJob![8]

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.

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 positive and negative aspects of Coulter’s life and career.

Coulter’s Terrorist Protection Racket

Seeking to protect America from terrorists, Ann Coulter actually protects terrorists who are already in America.

coulters-terrorist-protection-racket

Coulter wants to ban immigration to prevent people who are or might become terrorists from entering our homeland. She cites specific examples of “second-generation immigrants” (e.g., native-born Americans) who have committed terrorist attacks. Yet, at the very same time, Coulter denies the existence of terrorists in America.

Coulter has repeatedly denied (again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again) the threat that ISIS poses to Americans in America.

As she has done for the last several years, Coulter primary – indeed, only – concern is immigration. Hence her repeated denials that ISIS is not in America and ISIS poses absolutely no threat to Americans.

  • “I don’t even care about ISIS!” – Ann Coulter, 2/19/15
  • “ISIS is not on our doorstep.” – Ann Coulter, 2/25/15
  • “If you don’t want to be killed by ISIS, don’t go to Syria.” – Ann Coulter, 2/25/15
  • “ISIS: 0; Ted Kennedy: Too Many to Count” – Ann Coulter, 7/8/15
  • “Are you worried about an attack from ISIS in America? I’m not. [ISIS attacks in America] are an immigration problem.” – Ann Coulter, 8/22/16

This, even as she decries the influx of non-WASP immigrants who might become radicalized Islamists.

Classic Orwellian doublethink. The terrorists are immigrants (who must be banned and banished) but, because they’re immigrants, they’re not terrorists.

Confused, Coulter can’t grasp that we are facing an immigration and terrorism crisis. Moreover, Coulter redefines “immigrant” to include native-born Americans.

Coulter wrote (9/21/16): “This is the doubletalk the public has been forced to endure after every terrorist attack.”

Yes! After every terrorist attack, Coulter claims we must stop immigrants, not terrorists!

I Love Hispanics

Coulter absurdly claims, “I love Hispanics” at the same time as she commends Trump’s “magnificent Mexican rapist speech.”

i-love-hispanics

Coulter repeatedly boasts that “He won my heart with that Mexican rapist speech. That won me over.” We are, Coulter tells us, to fear Mexicans and Mexico’s peasant culture more than ISIS terrorists inside America’s heartland.

Yet, she expects us to believe that she loves Hispanics.

Coulter and Kerry Agree on ISIS

In a Twilight Zone development, the far left and far right agree on ISIS. Fiery foes, John Kerry and Ann Coulter are in strange fellowship on ISIS.

Coulter & Kerry Agree on ISIS

In addition to sharing a warped perspective of ISIS and being northeastern moderate elites (one actually claims to be conservative[1]), Coulter and Kerry share many other character and ideological traits. (We’ll leave that for another time, though narcissism[2] would be high on the list.)

But, back to ISIS.

Both Kerry[3] and Coulter[4] claim that ISIS poses no threat to America and they absurdly assert that something else is the real existential threat (Kerry – global warming;[5] Coulter – immigration[6]).

One denies the nature of ISIS, the other its goals. Kerry denies that ISIS is Islamic;[7] Coulter denies that ISIS is in America.

Furthermore, Coulter[8] and Kerry are both appalled at the extent of media coverage of ISIS and each would like to silence the media.

Kerry recently said (emphasis added), “If you decide one day you’re going to be a terrorist and you’re willing to kill yourself, you can go out and kill some people. You can make some noise … perhaps the media would do us all a service if they didn’t cover it quite as much. People wouldn’t know what’s going on.”

Coulter ranted, “every time I turn on TV it’s ISIS, ISIS, ISIS,”[9] and said, “Fox was spending a bit too much time on ISIS.”[10] Coulter even regards ISIS coverage as a media conspiracy: “There are always going to be Muslim atrocities! Whenever the media starts obsessing with ISIS, I think you’re hiding something.”[11]

Propagandists[12] everywhere hate the truth coming out.

Coulter’s ISIS Denial

Are you worried about an attack from ISIS in America? I’m not.”

Coulter’s ISIS Denial

Ann Coulter spoke those words on August 22, 2016.[1] Long after San Bernardino and Orlando. Long after Paris, Brussels, Istanbul, and Nice.

According to FBI counterterrorism expert Dr. Sebastian Gorka, there have been 109 ISIS attacks in America in the last two years.[2]

Moreover, Coulter argues that domestic terrorist attacks by ISIS are “an immigration problem.”

Coulter has repeatedly denied (again,[3] and again,[4] and again,[5] and again,[6] and again,[7] and again,[8] and again,[9] and again[10]) the threat that ISIS poses to Americans in America.

Here are a few Coulter gems: “I don’t even care about ISIS!” “ISIS is not at our doorstep.” “Forget the terrorism.”

Forgetting the terrorism, Coulter blithely charges ahead with her anti-immigration agenda and rejects every effort to deal with those terrorists and would-be terrorists who are already here!

If Coulter’s entire immigration plan was put into effect, it would not prevent terrorist attacks from jihadists or radicalized Americans who are already here.

A moratorium on all immigration – which is her favorite proposal – would do absolutely nothing to address the jihadist threat currently entrenched in America. Under Coulter’s plan, American citizens who have lived in America for decades and been radicalized to jihad would remain in America.

As for the 9/11 hijackers, guess how many were immigrants? None! One entered the U.S. on a student visa, the remainder on tourist or business visas.

Emulating Obama, who dismisses the ISIS threat and refuses to even name Islamic terrorism, Coulter dismisses the ISIS threat and refuses to acknowledge its existence in the heartland of America.

Ludicrously, Coulter writes: “If your elected representative is talking to you about ISIS, he’s planning to outsource your job and move Syrian refugees into your neighborhood.”

Coulter is acting as a Quisling isolationist.

Wake up, Ann Coulter!

Coulter, Orlando & Nonsense

Blunders galore!

In the wake of the horrific Islamic terrorist attack in Orlando, Ann Coulter has, once again, gone off the rails. In doing so, she further endangers every American, resident, and visitor in the United States.

Orlando

Coulter denies the identity of the terrorist, wrongly claims that her solution would completely eliminate terrorism in the United States, and willfully neglects the actual and would-be terrorists currently living in our nation’s homeland.

Misidentifies the Terrorist

Coulter used very slippery phrasing in her column yesterday[1] to assert that the Islamic terrorist who committed such an horrific act in Orlando was not an American citizen (even though he was!). She insists, like Trump, that he was an Afghan.

Coulter quoted Trump: “The killer was an Afghan, of Afghan parents, who immigrated to the United States.” She then chastised the media for correctly citing what Trump had actually said.

Ironically, the theme of Coulter’s column is that the media puts words into Trump’s mouth, misrepresenting what he says. Here, she did just that with Katie Tur. She wrote: “Immediately after Trump’s speech, MSNBC’s Katie Tur ‘fact-checked’ Trump, announcing that he had incorrectly said Omar was ‘born in Afghan.’”

But Kur did not say “born in Afghan.” Kur accurately reported what Trump had said about “the shooter being born an ‘Afghan’” (“an” not “in”).

Coulter continued to attack Kur for what she did not say: “What did Tur think this meant? ‘Afghan’ isn’t a country. Didn’t she pause for a moment and realize that what she thought he said makes no sense?”

Ironically, Coulter, herself a journalist, then added, “Journalists with their outsized sense of importance say, No, no, that’s not what I heard. It says in my notes right here, you said, ‘blue carrots for Eisenhower.’ I stand by my notes.”

Just two days earlier, Coulter maintained, “He’s an Afghani!”[2] Afghani or Afghan? Afghan is more accurate to identify people from Afghanistan; Afghani is usually used as an adjective, not a noun.

In her column,[3] Coulter returned to attacking the Washington Post for writing, “The shooter was born in Queens to parents who emigrated from Afghanistan.” That Post quote is absolutely, factually correct! Coulter disapproves. (Why? Because it is accurate!)

Her soliloquy continued with (probably largely accurate) assertions that the media prefer to identify perpetrators of atrocities as “Americans” and emphasize ethnicity in benign or uplifting stories.

Coulter then got to her main point: the media was wrong and Trump was right. Except, she’s wrong about that, too. Coulter falsely claimed that the Washington Post admitted its error with its headline, “Orlando gunman said he carried out attack to get ‘Americans to stop bombing his country,’ witness says.”

The Post made no admission of error. Coulter’s probable rationale: If he was out to get Americans, he couldn’t be American. Poppycock!

Denying the obvious – that a 29-year-old American committed this atrocity – refutes Coulter’s contention that all we need to do to prevent future terrorist attacks is to stop immigration. (Yes! Omar Mateen had lived in America for almost three decades!)

On the Eric Metaxas Show,[4] an enraged Coulter rejected his American citizenship – and his birth certificate – charging: “No! He’s an Afghani! His parents were immigrants.”

Ipso facto, stop immigration and you stop terrorism.

Stop Immigrants, Not Terrorists!

Coulter has been saying this for years.[5]

Coulter continued: “He wouldn’t have been here. None of the terrorists who have committed any of the terrorist attacks, starting with 9/11, would have been in this country but for Teddy Kennedy’s 1965 immigration act.”

Again, that’s not true.

Kennedy is Coulter’s favorite bogeyman. During her interview, Coulter specifically included the Boston Marathon bombers, who were political asylees, who would have been eligible under the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952. Moreover, since 1965, Congress has passed numerous laws and acts regarding immigrants and refugees. Nevertheless, Coulter always reverts back to 1965 to fit the thesis of her last book, even though immigration law has been radically revised since then.

How about the 9/11 hijackers? One entered the U.S. on a student visa, the remainder on tourist or business visas. None of them were immigrants!

Coulter then prescribed a three-part solution to end mass shootings and terrorist attacks: 1) arm citizens, 2) treat the mentally ill, and 3) stop immigration by Muslims. The centerpiece of her plan: “not importing Muslims – that’s how you shut all of this down.”[6] As it happens, I agree with all three aspects of her plan but not her conclusion.

A ban on all Muslims would not end the jihadist threat in America.

This has been a major flaw in Coulter’s elaborate plan to save America from itself. A moratorium on all immigration – which is her favorite proposal – would do absolutely nothing to address the jihadist threat currently entrenched in America. Under Coulter’s plan, American citizens who have lived in America for decades and been radicalized to jihad would remain in America.

Coulter sees the external, but not the internal, threat. Denying the internal threat prevents us from appropriately countering it.

Instead of dealing aggressively with this internal existential threat, Coulter has consistently and continuously opposed those who seek to do so. She has denied the threat even exists,[7] insisted that Americans need to fear Mexicans more than Islamists,[8] and is horrified at the extent of media coverage given to ISIS.[9]

Coulter demands: “Forget the terrorism.”[10] For Coulter, it’s all about immigration and nothing else.[11]

Coulter refuses to call Islamic terrorists who are American “American” and she is loath to use the term “terrorist” for acts of terror committed in America. She even referred to the Boston Marathon bombers as “murderers”[12] instead of terrorists.

Formerly the foremost neoconservative, Coulter now eschews the military intervention necessary to prevent the radicalization of potential jihadists and American citizens already living here in America. Victory on the battlefield would spell  defeat for recruitment in the homeland.

Coulter will not fight ISIS either at home or abroad. Coulter wants to prevent ISIS from getting here, but they’re already here.

While the Left reflexively demands gun control to stop mass shootings and acts of terror,[13] Coulter’s matrix looks almost exclusively to immigration.

Both miss the point. Islamists seek the destruction of America because of their Islamist beliefs and they are already here![14] Any strategy to defeat the enemy must acknowledge this reality and oppose them over there and over here.

The Real Talking Head Twit of the Year

This week’s Coulter column, titled “Talking Head Twit of the Year Contest,” begs for the nomination of its writer as the winner.

Calling the GOP pundit class “clueless morons,” Coulter invites justifiable reciprocation.

Talking Head Twit

Coulter limited her critique of her peers to prognostications on Trump’s presidential campaign,[1] her singular obsession[2] this election cycle.

Ann Coulter Gems

Here are a few Coulter gems from the past year.

Absurdly, Coulter insists that the Great Depression “was the most prosperous period in American history.”[3]

Coulter has repeatedly denied (again,[4] and again,[5] and again,[6] and again,[7] and again,[8] and again,[9] and again[10]) the threat that ISIS poses to Americans in America.

Coulter’s infamous rant against Jews[11] cost her both speaking engagements and television appearances.[12] Her phony excuses[13] failed to convince others.

Coulter repeatedly attacks Catholics[14] for being Catholic.

Coulter repeatedly attacks Christians for being Christians. To Coulter, Christian missionaries are fake Christians.[15] She even attacks Christians for being godly![16] Coulter advocates for ignoring the ongoing Christian genocide[17] taking place in the Middle East.

Coulter repeatedly attacks[18] pro-lifers[19] for championing life.[20]

Coulter became a birther[21] to lie about Cruz’s eligibility for president.[22]

Coulter relishes calling other people bimbos, while inviting similar criticism.[23]

Coulter claimed that Ben Carson and Carly Fiorina[24] were popular candidates only because he is black and she is a woman. Tokens to political correctness.

Coulter’s Irrelevancy

In her column, Coulter lamented that GOP pundits “can … be so consistently wrong and never lose work.” Why does Coulter still have a job?

Of those pundits, Coulter asked, “why should we listen to you next time?” Why should we listen to Coulter?

Fortunately, a growing number of conservatives are beginning to see Coulter for who she really is.[25] Hence her growing irrelevancy.[26]

Ann Coulter announced a Talking Head Twit of the Year Contest and – surprise! – she won!

Coulter Still Doesn’t Get Terrorist Threat!

In her celebratory “Happy Birthday to Me!” column[1] last Wednesday, Ann Coulter finally – finally! – acknowledged and highlighted terrorism in America. But then, she quickly reversed course, urging us to “Forget the terrorism”[2] and, instead, focus on immigration.

Still

After vigorously denying,[3] for almost a year,[4] the very existence of Islamic jihad in America,[5] Coulter suddenly spotlighted Islamic terrorism in one column.

Brief Recognition of Domestic Terrorism

An elated Coulter penned her birthday column, praising Donald Trump for her “best birthday gift this week” – his plan to stop all Muslim immigration into the U.S.

Coulter repeatedly used terms and phrases like “Muslim terrorist attacks on U.S. soil,” “radical Islamic terrorism,” and “as if the nation had come under terrorist attack,” suggesting that she now understands the threat posed by Islamists to Americans. Coulter admitted there have been “more than a dozen Muslim terrorist attacks on our soil in the last 15 years.”

Coulter even acknowledged, “there are more than a thousand active investigations of ISIS in all 50 states.” But Coulter’s only solution to terrorism is to stop immigration!

Coulter offered no ideas for what to do with terrorists who are already here. Further, she opposes stopping terrorists overseas! Coulter chided Rubio for his military solution to destroy the source of terrorism in the Middle East.[6]

Ignore Domestic Terrorism?

The very next day, Coulter reverted to norm, dismissing the process in which ISIS victories overseas translate domestic radicalization and telling Americans to “Forget the terrorism.”[7] So, Coulter’s seeming change of heart on terrorism was ephemeral, illusory, merely a trick to capitalize on the news of the day.

Why did her column last week focus so much on terrorism? She was not prompted to do so because of the recent terrorist attacks in San Bernardino or in Paris. Rather, Trump’s call to ban Muslim immigrants and refugees acted as a jump start to Coulter’s own anti-immigration crusade.

Coulter decries the immigration of over a million Muslims since 9/11, “as they continue to launch these terrorist attacks here in America.”[8] Coulter also attacks the folly (in her mind) of fighting ISIS overseas. Why? Because the San Bernardino terrorists (she calls them “shooters”)[9] had planned terrorist plots prior to the formation of ISIS. (Except, ISIS is an outgrowth of Al-Qaeda and all the Islamist terrorist groups have a shared goal of a global caliphate.)

Just as she has done all this year, adopting a very Obamaesque line of reasoning, Coulter dismisses the Islamist threat in America in order to focus on her anti-immigration agenda and to promote her book and her Chosen One: Donald Trump.[10]

For Coulter, terrorism is merely a distraction from the real threat to America – climate change. No, that’s Obama’s fear.[11] Make that, immigration.

What To Do About Domestic Terrorism?

Throughout this year, Coulter has merged domestic terrorism into the immigration crisis, when they are, in fact, overlapping concerns. Having subordinated domestic terrorism to immigration, she ignores it.

Coulter is zealous over immigration while dismissing terrorism.[12] Indeed, she refers to the San Bernardino terrorists as shooters.[13] Coulter was horrified at all of the attention paid to the Paris terrorist attack[14] (at the expense of immigration) and, in the face of the San Bernardino terrorist attack, Coulter again opposed immigrants, not terrorists.[15]

Coulter claims that immigration is the answer to everything!

Coulter’s proposal – a moratorium on immigration – would do nothing to stop those Islamists who are already here in America. Coulter neglects those terrorists, Islamists, and others who could be radicalized who already have their green cards or are American citizens. Coulter has no plan for them. Nor does she have any proposals to stop the radicalization of future terrorists.

And Coulter will attack you if you raise the issue!

Instead, Coulter commands us to “Forget the terrorism.”[16]
