Are Coulter’s ‘Facts’ Right?

Ann Coulter has been sacked by the Truth[1] more often than RG3 has been sacked by the Detroit Lions.

Coulter often does speak truth, but she all too often tells lies. Discerning between truth and lies can be problematic with Coulter. During her latest book tour, Coulter has told countless lies. Small lies. Big lies. Smug lies. Hurtful lies. Shameful lies.

Sacked

One tactic Coulter uses to present her propaganda[2] (to promote herself and her agenda) is that of speaking with conviction. She will forcefully and vehemently lie with the expectation that her seeming conviction will convince others of her falsehoods.[3]

Coulter v. Colmes

Before highlighting some of the many falsehoods from Coulter’s current book tour (so many lies, so little time), it would be instructive to consider an exchange with Alan Colmes:[4]

Coulter: “The truth about immigration is always the same; the lies are always different. I look at the studies. You know, you have to read down and figure out, where’s the lie here? Where’s the lie there? They lie in all different kinds of ways.”

Colmes: “So whenever I present data you don’t like, you just say it’s a lie.”

Coulter: “Exactly!

Colmes: “So every study is wrong except the ones you quote?”

Coulter: “Look! I show the data. You can look at it yourself.”

Whenever Coulter is confronted with facts she cannot refute, she will dismiss them or deny their veracity.

Coulter’s False “Facts” on Her Book Tour

Here are just a few of Coulter’s many prevarications:

[The hyperlinked headings provide the truth about her fraudulent claims.]

ISIS poses no threat to the American homeland.[5] “I don’t even care about ISIS! … ISIS is not at our doorstep.”[6] And, “I have a little tip. If you don’t want to be killed by ISIS, don’t go to Syria.”[7]

ISIS: 0.[8] Dismissing the terrorist threat in America, Coulter concluded a column: “Now go back to worrying about ISIS.”[9]

America has taken in 25% of Mexico.[10] “America has already taken in one-fourth of Mexico’s entire population.”[11] And, “We’ve taken one quarter of Mexico’s population.”[12]

Civil rights[13] are only for blacks.[14] “The only time you should be able to sue for discrimination is if you are an African-American. That’s it! That’s it! I don’t want to hear about anybody else. You can hire whomever you want to. You can fire whomever you want to. … Civil rights are for blacks.”[15]

Diversity is white.[16] Ann Coulter’s America is exceedingly small and insular. Coulter crows, “It used to be more diverse, admittedly from white, Western European countries, mostly. But I consider, you know, the Scotch, the Irish, the English – I think that’s enough diversity. That really mixes it up for me.”[17]

America will be a WASP nation again.[18] Coulter explained (emphasis added): “It’s a monochromatic WASP country that other ethnicities have come to and for the first 400 years of its existence, (as a colony and then as a country) the ‘wildly diverse’ immigrants were other white western Europeans. That was the extent of the diversity.”[19]

And, “Send me a million people who want to come to America, and I will decide them all before breakfast. I can pretty much decide on looks; it would save a lot of money.”[20]

Coulter has never been accused of racism.[21] “One thing I have never been called, ah, is, is, is, is a racist. Um, anyone, anyone who reads my book – or, or Mugged – will see, um, that that would be a very difficult case to make.”[22]

All immigrants are bad.[23] “My only quibble with [Trump] is that, No. 1, it’s legal immigrants, too. And, No. 2, there are no good ones.”[24]

Pro-lifers are putzes[25] and sissies.[26] “Exactly. So sick of the anti-abortion machismo from right wing sissies.”[27]

And, “… their big thing is to keep talking about this abortion thing. Well, that’s great if it were 1977. I’d think you’re really brave and you’re doing a great thing. But I kind of think you’re just a putz imitating what was good forty years ago at this point.”[28]

Mitt Romney was better than Reagan.[29] “[Romney] did better than Reagan did. I think that’s pretty good.”[30] And “The best we ever had was Mitt Romney.”[31]

Donald Trump could win as a third-party candidate.[32] “[A third party candidacy] would be fantastic! Go, Trump, Go!”[33] And “I think he could be not only a nominee who could win but a third party candidate who could win.”

Hillary Clinton will be Democrat nominee.[34] “I promise you Jeb or Rubio are going to lead to a Hillary presidency.”[35] And, “You have to vote for Hillary over those two[36] [Bush and Rubio].”[37]

Nikki Haley is an ignorant immigrant:[38] “Well, I’m a student of American history. On the other hand, [Nikki Haley] is an immigrant and does not understand America’s history.”[39]

Ted Cruz is ineligible to be President:[40] “Ted Cruz gave a good answer on immigration. Too bad he’s not a natural born citizen!”[41]

Carly Fiorina is just a woman who can talk:[42] “I’ve turned against [Carly Fiorina] as of yesterday with the hot, hot hate of a thousand suns. … At first, I admit I was suspicious because I hate this, ‘Oh, a woman can talk, oh, isn’t that’s great?’”[43]

Ann Coulter is better that Donald Trump.[44] “Trump’s a piker compared to moi.”[45]

Coulter is Not Conservatism’s Best

Delusions of grandeur aside, Coulter cannot be trusted because she thinks too highly of herself and she regards her lies as superior to the truth that we all need to make informed decisions.

RG3 boasted: “I feel like I’m the best quarterback in the league, and I have to go out and show that … There’s guys in this league that have done way more than me. But I still view myself as the best because that’s what I work toward every single day.”

Throughout her book tour,[46] Coulter has boasted about her superiority,[47] praising herself[48] and her book.[49]

Coulter is sacked by truth on a weekly, if not almost daily, basis. Until Coulter speaks the truth and sticks with the truth, Conservatives should not stick with Coulter.[50]

Coulter Disses Pro-Lifers – Again!

Coulter claims, “I am totally pro-life.”[1] But then, why does she always attack pro-lifers? What explains her 15-year opposition to the pro-life movement?

Did you know that pro-lifers are putzes? Ann Coulter says you are!

Putz

Referring to the current furor over Planned Parenthood’s selling body parts from aborted fetuses, launching of congressional investigations, and attempts to stop funding of Planned Parenthood, Coulter chides the so-called (in her eyes) bravery of politicians who are behind the times, saying,

“… their big thing is to keep talking about this abortion thing. Well, that’s great if it were 1977. I’d think you’re really brave and you’re doing a great thing. But I kind of think you’re just a putz imitating what was good forty years ago at this point.”[2]

Sorry, Ann, but “this abortion thing” is a big deal, especially now, when the entire country is horrified by what recently released videos reveal. (Much like the public is horrified by the Kathryn Steinle murder, a media frenzy Coulter is all too keen to exploit and take credit for.)[3]

Instead of doing the right thing – protecting the lives of those most vulnerable – Coulter would have Congress do nothing but pursue her immigration agenda. (Build fences while babies die!)

For Coulter, it is never the right time to defend the unborn,[4] to help those who are regarded as somehow “below human.”

In 2000, Coulter vilified GOP presidential candidate Gary Bauer and other pro-lifers who were seeking a constitutional remedy to abortion. Her essay was titled, “Must Christian conservatives be fascists?” Coulter’s purpose was to preserve George W. Bush’s candidacy from the wrath of the abortion industry.

Ever since, Coulter has subordinated pro-life considerations to whatever matters she considers more immediate or more expedient. Coulter has, in fact, rejected many potential pro-life candidates for others she deemed more electable.[5]

Coulter blamed pro-lifers for Republican defeat in 2012, writing, “Can you learn to say, ‘no exceptions’ or rather, ‘no abortions with exceptions for rape, incest and the life of the mother?’ Learn that. Memorize that. Stop waxing philosophical when you’re running to make laws.”[6]

Yes, Coulter blamed pro-lifers for Romney’s defeat: “The last two weeks of the campaign were consumed with discussions of women’s ‘reproductive rights,’ not because of anything Romney did, but because these two idiots [Akin and Mourdock] decided to come out against abortion in the case of rape and incest.”

Moreover, Coulter thinks life in the womb is a “philosophical” argument and wants pro-lifers to be pragmatic by permitting human beings who are conceived in rape to be aborted. Coulter’s disregard for human life is clear in her pretzel-twisted logic:

“No law is ever going to require a woman to bear the child of her rapist. Yes, it’s every bit as much a life as an unborn child that is not the product of rape. But sentient human beings are capable of drawing gradations along a line.”

A child of rape is “every bit as much a life as an unborn child that is not the product of rape,” yet that child’s life is forfeit for political reasons.[7]

Ethics have never been Coulter’s forte.[8]

Last year, Coulter offered a talking point for Republican candidates:

“Yes, of course there should be exceptions in the case of rape and incest, and I also support giving rapists the death penalty, unlike my Democrat opponent, who wants to give rapists the right to vote.”[9]

Now, Coulter scorns pro-lifers to target immigration – her current single issue – because she is selling a book.[10]

Still, Coulter has the temerity to claim, “I am totally pro-life.”[11]

Coulter is the real putz![12]

Coulter’s Ego: I Did It!

Illegal immigration and sanctuary cities have caught the attention of both the public and politicians. Outraged citizens, anti-immigration activists, non-profit organizations, the media, lawmakers, and presidential candidates have weighed in on the escalating immigration crisis.

And Ann Coulter takes the credit.[1]

CoulterEgo

Last Friday, when asked about the depth and intensity of interest in illegal immigration, Coulter jumped in, claiming, “Because of Adios, America![2]

Ann, never shy, immediately added, “Everyone always says to me, ‘Oh, what good timing this book was.’ No, it’s not good timing. The book came out – that’s why everybody’s talking about [immigration].”

(Yet, in interview after interview, Coulter has complained that the mainstream media is completely ignoring her. How can this circle be squared?)

No, Ann. The intense interest in illegal immigration did not arise because of the publication of Adios, America! It arose because of a human tragedy.

The face of the movement to end sanctuary cities and enforce existing immigration laws is not that of Ann Coulter but of Kathryn Steinle, a 32-year-old woman murdered by an illegal alien who had been deported five times and had returned to San Francisco for sanctuary.

The public, politicians, and other concerned citizens are responding to this tragedy, not Coulter’s book.[3] (Nor Trump’s campaign.)[4]

It’s called “Kate’s Law,” not “Ann’s Law.”

Let’s show some respect for the dead and the bereaved.
