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?

Happy 58th Birthday, @AnnCoulter

Conservative celebrity Ann Coulter turned 58 today. What has she accomplished in her nearly six decades of life?

Coulter’s life and work, worldview and self-identity, are all filled with myriad contradictions and conundrums. From whence do those arise? Hers is a fascinating story of elite privilege, hubris, and insecurity.

Almost sexagenarian Ann has both achieved her wildest dreams and squandered her life.

Raising a Narcissist

Ann’s first few weeks of life were spent in an incubator and her child and teenage years were also lived in an incubator of sorts, one which nurtured and molded the narcissist so many have grown to either love or hate. Those incubators have isolated Ann from real life and real relationships. (Now, she confesses to be an agoraphobe who reads a lot.)

As a child, Ann, the last-born baby princess, was both doted upon and the object of high expectations. Ann had much to live up toher family name, her Puritan ancestry, and her WASP settler roots.

Higher Education and Networking

Ann was reared by elites in the elite town of New Canaan, Connecticut, and she later attended elite academic institutions: Cornell University and the University of Michigan Law School.

As a child, Ann quickly learned how to manipulate people with her looks and quick wit. In later years, she put her skills to good use, creating a vast network of useful contacts in academia, the media, and among various political organizations.

Coulter used those useful contacts to obtain jobs and, later, media gigs. Indeed, she would later all of those connections into lucrative book deals and speaking engagements, even cross-country speaking tours (and a Canadian speaking tour, as well).

Coulter would inevitably be drawn to the three power centers of America: Washington, D.C., (politics), New York (media), and Los Angeles (entertainment).

From Senate Staffer to Conservative Star

Since her teenage years (oh so long ago), Ann sought to become a star, a mover-and-shaker, a President-maker. In the late 1990s, Coulter was an obscure Senate staffer who quickly rose to prominence within conservative circles and would, in time, become close friends with multi-millionaires and billionaires.

In 1997, Coulter betrayed Paula Jones in order to impeach President Clinton. Ever since, she has sought to control the nomination process and electoral outcome of every presidential election, by whatever means necessary.

President-Maker and Pretender to the Throne

Beginning with the 2000 presidential election, Coulter sought to make a president. For fully two decades, Coulter smeared all opposition to her preferred candidates, fabricating “facts” and employing elimination rhetoric to achieve her personal, professional, and ideological goals. The politics of personal destruction became her métier.

Coulter became the gold standard for scorched-earth politics and relished identifying herself as a polemicist and provocateur.

Coulter found success in Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential victory campaign and has often claimed credit for his agenda and success. Indeed, during the first three years of Trump’s presidency, Coulter has acted as if she were president and that he should do her will.

Losing Her Moral Compass

In the end, Coulter discarded the values and principles instilled in her by Father and the grace, compassion, and generosity exemplified by Mother. Coulter abandoned the faith of Father and twisted the faith of Mother into her own unique gospel.

While despising the “godless Left” for its anti-Americanism and moral relativism, Coulter adopted the Left’s axiom of “the end justifies the means.”

Though claiming to be “totally pro-life,” Coulter has bashed the pro-life movement for over two decades, placing political pragmatism over eternal principles. Despite claiming to be “an extraordinarily good Christian,” Coulter has attacked Christians for over two decades – for behaving like Christians!

Once the fiercest neo-conservative warrior, Coulter became a strident nativist, pacifist, isolationist, and immigration hawk. With each incarnation, Coulter called those who opposed her views “traitors.”

From #InTrumpWeTrust to #NeverTrump … all over a Wall!

With Donald Trump’s 2016 election victory, Coulter’s dream of making a President (in her eyes, she gets almost all the credit) came true. But the honeymoon was over even before the election results came in.

Coulter vacillates between being #InTrumpWeTrust and #NeverTrump seemingly by the day, if not the hour. One moment she worships her “Emperor-God Trump” and the next she declares doomsday because of Trump! (Talk about mood swings!)

Beginning around 2014, Coulter’s peers, sponsors, and fans began rejecting her. President Trump called her a #WackyNutJob! Coulter became walled off from reality! Even at the end of 2019, in the midst of an American Renaissance, Coulter screamed doomsday! In effect, Coulter became the Left’s secret weapon against Trump and against America.

Coulter’s myopic view of #BuildTheWall walled her off from the reality of Trump’s 3D chess strategy. Coulter remains oblivious to Trump’s phenomenal achievements, all the more astonishing in that he is opposed by the #Resistance and a series of #WitchHunts seeking a #DeepStateCoup! Nevertheless, Trump keeps winning and winning.

Victim of Her Own Success

Power corrupts. So does fame. Coulter acquired both in a short period of time. All of the forces in her life fed her ego, puffed her up with pride, and propelled her to ever greater heights of hubris and hyperbolic polemics.

Coulter has garnered considerable attention, fame, glory, and infamy. She has achieved much, perhaps beyond her wildest imagination. She has received countless awards and accolades and strutted over many red carpets, but what has she really accomplished?

Coulter is intensely hated by the Left, is a pariah on the Right, has been rejected by those who know her best, and is at Ground Zero of the catastrophic forces which are tearing America apart – forces which she herself helped unleash!

Coulter’s perhaps well-intentioned efforts have often proved counterproductive. Justifying her extremist polemics, at CPAC 2002, Coulter argued that moving ever further right would pull people from the left to the center. Instead, her polemical approach pushed the left further left, exacerbating the political and cultural divide which plagues America today.

Coulter fuels the fires and fans the flames of hostile polemical rhetoric so palpable in contemporary America. Yet, she feels no guilt or shame and accepts no responsibility for her behavior and her role in the deterioration of political discourse in America.

Impenitent, not Irredeemable

Even though Coulter remains impenitent, she is not irredeemable. God loves … even Ann.

There are encouraging signs. Ann’s commentary appears much more factual and far less polemical than at the height of her career. Her verbal and Twitter outbursts of rage are less frequent. Certain anecdotal evidence gives me hope that Ann may be turning toward God, who alone can heal her brokenness.

My dear readers, please pray for Ann’s redemption and healing this Christmas season.

May God bless you all, bless Ann, bless President Trump, and bless this great nation.

RIP Nell Husbands Martin Coulter

The death of Mother devastated Ann Coulter.

Following Mother’s death, Ann published a very personal, poignant, and often political eulogy.

In her eulogy, Ann mourned the loss her of “true No. 1 fan” who “was the biggest fan of” her entire family. Mother “was a little love machine, spreading warmth and joy wherever she went.” Mother loved hugging her daughter and telling her “what a wonderful, precious daughter” Ann was.

Ann felt safe and secure in her mother’s love: “My whole life, as soon as I’d see my mother’s face I’d know I was safe, whether I was a little girl lost in a department store or a big girl with a problem, who needed her mother.”

This Mother-Daughter love was very real.

A devoted daughter, Ann took excellent care of Mother during her declining years as she battled ovarian cancer. Ann even postponed publication of her seventh book, Guilty, to tend to her mother’s needs.

Ann understandably misses Mother’s “constant, unconditional love.”

In many ways, Ann emulates Mother (often to an extreme). In other ways, Ann repudiates Mother (often in extremist ways). Today, Mother would be both proud of, and perturbed by, her daughter.

Like Mother, Like Daughter

Ann and Mother both cherished their New England and Southern roots. Coulter’s prized genealogical roots all trace through Mother: New England Puritans and Daughters of the American Revolution, coupled with a solid Southern heritage.

Mother wanted to be specifically remembered for her “contributions to the Republican Party, the New Canaan Republican Town Committee and the Daughters of the American Revolution.”

“Mother may have thought her most notable characteristic was her Republican activism,” Coulter wrote, emphasizing her “deep-seated political activism” and being “always delighted to be with people talking about politics.”

Sounds a lot like Ann.

Mother was very proud to be “a direct descendant of at least a dozen patriots who served the cause of the American Revolution.” In fact, she “traced her lineage on both sides of her family to Puritan nonconformists who came to America in 1633 seeking religious freedom on a ship led by Pastor Thomas Hooker.”

Coulter, as she typically does, takes everything to extremes. Ann is so proud of her heritage as a Daughter of the American Revolution that she regards herself as a “settler” – and a “Native American.”

Ann also regards herself – a WASP – as a true American. (Hence her nativist and xenophobic impulses.) She treasures her Puritan roots, making her a self-identified authority on all things American.

Moreover, Ann is proud of Mother’s Southern roots, praising Mother’s “fighting Kentucky spirit” and “charming Southern accent.”

Coulter lauds the Confederacy whenever she can and tweeted (8/3/16): “Southerners accounted for 38 percent of those killed in Iraq and 47 percent in Afghanistan.” She then asked Gov. Haley: “How about Nikki put their flag back up?”

In other words, Coulter contends that Southerners who died in combat in Iraq and Afghanistan were fighting for the Confederacy!

Coulter continued: “The Confederate flag won’t lead to thousands of dead and maimed Americans, as Muslim immigration does. The only danger posed by the Confederate flag is that media elites will hold the South in even greater contempt than they already do, assuming that’s possible.”

Yes, Coulter equates Southerners with Confederates and believes that our brave military members from the South are currently fighting for the Confederacy and not for America!

Thus, Coulter has become the face of the Alt-Right movement, seeking restoration of a distinctly white WASP America while, simultaneously, promoting a neo-Confederate worldview.

Unlike Mother …

Mother was generous. Mother “probably contributed hundreds of thousands of dollars to various conservative outfits over the years.” Ann, not so much.

Ann’s generosity extends to helping those who can help her.

If she can get something out of it – self-promotion, praise, paycheck, book sale, networking connection – Ann will do it. Otherwise – if it does not personally benefit her – forget it.

Mother was compassionate. Since she “was a little girl,” Ann saw that “friends, relatives and neighbors would bring their problems to Mother.” Why? Because Mother “had a rare combination of being completely moral and completely nonjudgmental at the same time” and would give “good counsel” without making others feel worse about themselves.

As for Ann, well, her entire career is based upon wounding other people. Given a choice between fact and polemic, Ann usually chooses the latter.

Mother valued human life. She was a “gentle lady” who “never had an unkind word for anyone.” In fact, “Father would always smile and say, ‘Your mother defends everyone.’”

Mother was proud of Ann for her pro-life speech presented before a Roman Catholic women’s group in New Canaan, CT, and later published in Human Life Review and various essay collections nationwide.

Now, though claiming, “I am totally pro-life,” Ann passionately attacks conservatives and Christians for pursuing a pro-life agenda.

As far back as the late 1990s, Coulter began attacking pro-lifers for purely political purposes. In reality, Coulter would have pro-lifers do nothing and let the unborn fend for themselves!

Mother was a devout Christian. Faith figured prominently in Mother’s life. She was very active in her local church and her faith was important enough to her that she faithfully turned her daughter to Presbyterianism.

In her moving eulogy, Ann emphasized Mother’s Republican activism and DAR lineage. Surprisingly, Ann missed Mother’s Christian beliefs. She utterly ignored her Mother’s faith.

Though claiming, “I’m an extraordinarily good Christian,” Ann has attacked Christians for most of the past two decades. She even attacks Christians for being godly!

Ann lovingly gave honor to Mother with her words, but in her life Coulter dishonors Mother.

Gone Astray

As I wrote last year:

I suspect that Ann never really believed in the Christian ideals and conservative principles she espoused. Indeed, she was not the “true believer” everyone believed her to be. Rather, she adopted those ideals and principles from her parents, whom she loved. Her father died in 2008; her mother in 2009. Since then, Ann’s moral and spiritual compass no longer exists. Ann is being tossed to and fro by the pragmatism of the moment and the passing whims of her heart.”

“Coulter hates conservatives, Christians, and pro-lifers for being what they are because she once believed she belonged in those categories. Now, whenever these people of principle act on their principles, she is put to shame as a charlatan. They expose Coulter for who she really is – a fraud.”

“Will Ann always be a fraud? Only God knows and only He can bring meaning and direction to her life. Unless and until Ann courageously faces the reality of who she has become and fights the good fight of faith to become the person God has called her to be, she will always be filled with hate and fear.”

“May God grant Ann repentance and transform her heart.”

Yes, Ann Hart Coulter has, indeed, lost the moorings of her parents’ presence, principles, and piety. Her heart is now turned in the wrong direction, away from God and opposed to His will. Whether or not she knows it, Ann has rejected God and His will for her life.

Instead, the “Emperor-God Trump” is her Savior. Coulter has rejected God and arrogantly placed her will above His.

Coulter recently said that with Mother’s passing, she can now say anything she wants to. She claimed, “I really am the freest person in America right now. I can say anything.”

The Easter season reminds us that we are all equal before the cross and that we must humble ourselves before the One who saves.

Obviously, humility eludes Ann. Her hubris abhors humility because 1) she rejects its efficacy and 2) she regards it as a sign of weakness.

Here’s the rub: Without humility, salvation is impossible. We must humbly come to the cross to accept God’s love and salvation. Until we do, we are not saved and we will never have peace.

Our Father’s Love

Ann praised Mother for her “unconditional love.” Mother was loving – and loved.

Mother’s love actually points to our heavenly Father’s perfect unconditional love. But only God perfectly expresses and exhibits unconditional love. Mothers can come close, but imperfectly.

Our Father has a perfect love, presence, and power. Trust Him!

In her eulogy, Ann expressed reassurance that Mother and Father were reunited in heaven and that she would see them both in time.

Revelation 21:4 reveals: “And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”

I pray that God wipes away all of Ann’s tears, from whatever source.
