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.

Trump’s P^ssies

Donald Trump described sexual assault and his female surrogates defend him!

trumps-pussies

Trump said, “Grab them by the pussy. You can do anything.”

Kellyanne Conway, Trump’s latest campaign manager, used multiple lines of defense, beginning with denial (10/10/16): “He did not say the word ‘sexual assault.’” But Trump described sexual assault.

Conway also used the he’s-nice-to-me-so-he-can’t-be-bad defense (10/10/16):

“And this is a man I’ve been alone with many times who’s never been anything but gracious and [a] gentleman and elevated me to the top level of his campaign, the way he’s elevated women in the Trump organization for decades, because he respects women.”

Trump propagandist and consigliere, Ann Coulter, used the they-did-it-too defense in multiple tweets (10/9/16):

“Media covered for serial rapist Bill Clinton, who continued his abuse of women & teenaged girls AS PRESIDENT…”

“Media covered for Ted Kennedy (drowned a girl, left her to die, then ran for president ELEVEN years later.”

“It’s not Trump v Bill Clinton. It’s Trump v MSM-covered for Ted Kennedy (killed girl) Bill Clinton (serial rapist) John Edwards(open affair)”

Ironically, both Coulter and Conway were united against President Clinton – seeking to destroy his presidency based, in part, on his sexual exploits – and they are now united against Hillary Clinton – defending the sexual exploits of their new-found savior.

Talk about pussies.

Coulter OK with Her Death Threats

Whether deliberately, or with flippancy, Coulter enjoys employing elimination rhetoric.

Death Threats

Death threats are well within her wheelhouse. She calls them jokes or denies that they are threats but the truth cannot be denied.

In a recent column, Coulter tried doing just that – denying the obvious.

(Check out Appendix 1 of The Gospel According to Ann Coulter for a panorama of her pronouncements.)

Here are just a few examples:

“I think that every day when I take the New York City subway. But I can analyze my feelings. My privacy. I would like to kill all of them. I can analyze that and stop myself from killing people on a New York City street.” – 7/11/00

“I think you would be nicer to me if you thought I was packing [a gun].” – 2/16/01

“One time I had a shot at Clinton. I thought, ‘Ann, that’s not going to help your career.’” – 2/10/06

“My only regret with Timothy McVeigh is he did not go to the New York Times Building.” – 8/26/02

“Both [Al Gore and Gray Davis] were veterans, after a fashion, of Vietnam, which would make a Gore/Davis presidential ticket the only compelling argument yet in favor of friendly fire.” – 8/13/03

“I hope the results are similar [for John Kerry], since Osama is D-E-A-D dead in Tora Bora since December, 2001.” – 10/10/04

“Would that it were so! That the American military were targeting journalists. … Yes, they should do that right after targeting the journalists.” – 2/7/05

“We need somebody to put rat poison in Justice Stevens’s créme brulée.” – 1/27/06

“If the death penalty doesn’t deter murder, how come Michael Moore is still alive and I’m not on death row?” – 6/6/06

“They Shot the Wrong Lincoln.” – 8/30/06

“If I’m going to say anything about John Edwards in the future, I’ll just wish he had been killed in a terrorist assassination plot.” – 6/25/07

“Totally ironically, Zeke Emanuel is on my death list. Hold the applause. I’m going to be on the death panel. … Right [I get to pick who dies.] I have a list. Should I start with the ‘A’s?” – 8/12/09

“Some are left alive, quick reload.” – 2/19/10

Coulter Lies About Media Lying About Her and Trump

Who knew? Both Donald Trump and Ann Coulter have the precisely the same identical problem: Neither of them ever say anything wrong and everything the media says about them is a lie.

Media Lies

To continue this propagandistic point she has been making for months, in her latest column (“How the Media Work”) Coulter lies – and lies wholeheartedly – about an incident from 2007. Not only does she lie about the underlying details but also about the factually-correct reporting of the event.

Coulter wrote: “This isn’t taking something ‘out of context’ – it’s a lie. Try quoting the full sentence!”

OK, I will.

Coulter recalls a Good Morning America appearance (6/25/07) in which she said (full quote, emphasis added):

“Oh yeah. I wouldn’t insult gays by comparing them to John Edwards. Now, that would be mean. But about the same time, you know, Bill Maher was not joking and saying he wished Dick Cheney had been killed in a terrorist attack. So I’ve learned my lesson. If I’m gonna say anything about John Edwards in the future, I’ll just wish he had been killed in a terrorist assassination plot.”

Coulter’s next words: “I’m not a rhetorician, but I believe this would be called a ‘syllogism,’ or ‘deductive reasoning.’” (Thanks for the patina of journalistic professionalism, Ann.)

Coulter continued: “Or maybe it’s just sarcasm about the media’s rank hypocrisy.”

The truth differs dramatically from Coulter’s imagined fantasy.

The media naturally and accurately reported that Coulter called for John Edwards assassination by a terrorist. According to Coulter, “Hundreds of news outlets repeated this lie.” Except, it wasn’t a lie!

Yet, Coulter calls this a lie, claiming her words were “taken out of context.”

What was the context? What made it a “’syllogism,’ or ‘deductive reasoning?’” Or “sarcasm?”

The context was Coulter comparing what she was saying about Edwards to her own false version of what Maher said about Cheney. The media largely ignored the Maher portion of her full quote because it was a lie. Maher never said what Coulter claimed Maher said.

Here’s what Maher said: “I’m just saying if he did die, other people, more people would live. That’s a fact.”

Here’s what Coulter said, “I’ll just wish he had been killed in a terrorist assassination plot.”

One is propositional, the other hypothetical. One is an expressed desire, the other a stated opinion.

Yet Coulter has the temerity to write:

“Ironically, the media’s rewrite pretty forcefully proved my point about the gigantic double standard for liberals and conservatives: In order to prove I was a monster, the media put a liberal’s words in my mouth – the exact same words they hadn’t minded when a liberal said them.”

Except the words were Coulter’s, not Maher’s. Coulter out her own words into a liberal’s mouth.

Remember, Maher never said what Coulter claimed he said. So why would the media deliberately perpetuate a lie created by Coulter?

Maybe Coulter really is a “monster,” to use her own vernacular.

When queried by Fox News about those comments, “radio talk show host Rob Thompson” described Coulter as “intellectual chewing gum … a lady in a dress who likes to spit out things that cause a little bit of unrest, and she’ll go away for a while. She’ll crawl back in her hole and we’ll hear from her in about six months.”

Coulter’s larger point and broader claim that both she and Trump have been victimized by media lies is balderdash. (Coulter has been crying victim for twenty years!)

The truth of what they say and do is far more effective than any lie could be.
