Separated at Birth II: Joy Reid & Ann Coulter – Christian Edition

Despite their personal enmity and political differences, Joy Reid and Ann Coulter are remarkably alike in their polemical nature and viewpoints in certain areas: anti-Mexican, anti-Semitic, death threats, hate speech, rape fantasies, identity politics, and even misogyny. To that, we can add hostility toward Christians.

Separated at Birth 2

Joy Reid regards evangelical beliefs as fiction, fantasy. She decries mainstream Christianity as opportunistic and apathetic toward those in need. As noted in Christian Post, “Joy Reid’s declaration against faith and family are part and parcel of a greater spiritual movement among the liberal elite to destroy both faith in God and the family.” Indeed, Reid regards “Church … family … police … military … the national anthem” as anachronistic and old-fashioned, things to be forgotten. Reid even attacked Sarah Palin for displaying a Christmas tree – on Christmas!

Ann Coulter has opposed Christians for fully two decades (while claiming to be a Christian!) Coulter has repeatedly condemned Christian missionaries for daring to fulfill the Great Commission in foreign lands, aiding those who are poor, sick, and in need. She calls Christians heeding their consciences “fake Christians” and attacks Christians for being godly. Further, Coulter demands that Christian refugees from genocide overseas be martyred. Moreover, Coulter’s WASP worldview compels her to continually denigrate Catholics.

In many ways, Joy Reid and Ann Coulter are twins. Both are openly hostile to Christianity while one – Ann Coulter – actually claims to be a Christian. Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks, revealing the truth.

Separated at Birth: Joy Reid & Ann Coulter

Arch-left commentator Joy Reid and alt-right polemicist Ann Coulter hate each other (and one another’s politics), yet they have many traits in common. (One trait which markedly distinguishes the two is that Reid will actually apologize when she screws up.)

Separated at Birth

Ann and Joy have frequently butted heads on national television, with mixed results. But have they ever looked into the mirror of their own souls? If they had, they would have seen similarities in their viewpoints (Identity Politics) and polemical style.

Roseanne Barr and Joy Reid

The most recent kerfuffle began with an injudicious Roseanne Barr tweet which caused a meltdown on the Left. Just days later, Samantha Bee’s hateful attack on conservatives put a spotlight on liberal hypocrisy.

Then Joy Reid’s hateful attacks on whole groups of people bubbled up into the national consciousness.

Conservatives were quick to highlight Reid’s many attacks on Coulter, without realizing that Coulter shares Reid’s modus operandi and, in some areas, polemical perspective and nature.

Here are a few of Reid’s remarks regarding Coulter:

Joy Reid anti-Coulter tweets

What commonalities can be found between Reid and Coulter? Many. Here are just a few.

Misogyny

Reid’s misogynistic language employed against Coulter mirrors Coulter’s own decades-long style. Indeed, on Ingraham Angle (6/1/18), in response to Reid’s postings, Coulter replied:

“And then there’s the always popular calling me a man for having a beautiful swan-like neck. Liberal women, as long as we’re being frank here, aren’t used to that because they have rolls of fat on their neck. They’re really taken aback by my beautiful swan-like neck.”

Ingraham was taken aback: “Oh gosh. Okay, alright.”

But is it really “OK” and “alright?”

Coulter has, in fact, attacked women (for being women and on the basis of this looks and lack of intelligence) for around three decades. [See chapter 10,”Equality: Self-Evident Truths,” The Gospel According to Ann Coulter and chapter 7, “Spawn of Satan Convention,” The Beauty of Conservatism.]

Hate Speech

Coulter calls herself a “polemicist” and says she enjoys her “vitriol.” [See Chapter 8, “Polemics R Us,” The Beauty of Conservatism.]

Anti-Mexican

I tweeted: “She sounds an awful lot like @AnnCoulter who for several years now has denounced Mexican rapist culture and illegals who take jobs & welfare from Americans. http://wp.me/p4jHFp-6A.”

[See “Adios, Ann: Fear Mexicans, Not Jihadists,” “Adios, Ann: Coulter’s Blood Politics,” “Adios, Ann: Coulter’s Racial Confusion,” “Coulter: All Immigrants Are Bad,” and “Stop Immigrants, Not Terrorists!”]

Anti-Semitic

I tweeted: “Reid has savagely attacked @AnnCoulter yet they both love Identity Politics and both have a long history of #Antisemitism #AnnCoulter http://wp.me/p4jHFp-f4 .”

[See “Ann Coulter’s Jewish Roots,” “Effing Jews and Ann Coulter’s Waterloo (or Damascus Road?),” “First, Jews; Now, Catholics?,” “Jews: Quality, not Quantity,” and “Is Ann Coulter Anti-Semitic?”]

Death Threats

I tweeted: “Like Reid, @AnnCoulter is OK with death threats and rape jokes. Many of #AnnCoulter‘s “jokes” preceded Reid’s and Coulter has NEVER apologized. http://wp.me/p4jHFp-fY .

[See “Coulter OK with Her Death Threats” and Appendix 1, “Sampling of Coulter’s Elimination Rhetoric,” The Gospel According to Ann Coulter.]

Rape Fantasies

I tweeted: “Like Reid, @AnnCoulter is OK with death threats and rape jokes. Many of #AnnCoulter‘s “jokes” preceded Reid’s and Coulter has NEVER apologized. http://wp.me/p4jHFp-fY .

[See “Ann Coulter Trivializes Rape,” “Ann Coulter Was Gang Raped!,” “Ann’s Rape Fantasies,” and “Coulter on Rape – Good for Politics.”]

Identity Politics

I tweeted: “Reid has savagely attacked @AnnCoulter yet they both love Identity Politics and both have a long history of #Antisemitism #AnnCoulter http://wp.me/p4jHFp-f4 .”

[See “Adios, Ann: Diversity = White,” “Adios, Ann: Coulter’s WASP Fantasy,” “Coulter – Face of the Alt-Right,” “Warped Alt-Right Worldview,” and an e-book, #NeverTrump: Coulter’s Alt-Right Utopia.]

If you regard Joy Reid’s words and worldview as reprehensible, then you should so regard Ann Coulter’s.

 

Trump is a B.S.-er, Not Liar

Straight from the horse’s mouth, Donald Trump really is full of B.S.

trump-is-a-bs-er

Ann Coulter told the audience of The Drive Home (9/29/16), “I think what Trump is is a BSer, not a liar, by which I mean, it’s rhetorical.” She went on to claim that Trump is guilty of hyperbole and jokes, but not lying.

If only that were true.

Coulter has had to contend for over 15 months with Trump’s often bizarre formulations. Coulter has called her candidate “mental” and she “wanted to shoot” her TV prompted by Trump’s words and actions.

Coulter has admitted that Trump is a fraud, yet defends his every misstep, from mocking disabled journalists to defending misogyny. For her, death threats are fun and threatening to nuke Europe a blast.

Never forget, Coulter remains a propagandist for Trump, who, at heart is a bully. Coulter herself is the face of the Alt-Right.

Truly a match made in Hell.

Coulter Goes Mental Over Her “Mental” Candidate

An exasperated Ann Coulter recently lamented, “Our candidate is mental. Do you realize our candidate is mental?”

Trump is Mental

In a recent interview with Milo Yiannopoulos, Coulter peevishly confessed, “I’m a little testy with, with, with our man right now.”

Why? Because his “lowbrow” politics and performance degenerated into a series of hateful tweets attacking Heidi Cruz. Coulter was “ticked off at last night’s tweet,” claiming it “is the worst thing he’s done” (that’s saying something!) and also indefensible to boot.

Still, Coulter defends her man. “I love him so much on immigration,” she said, asserting, “He’s the only one who’s gonna build a wall.”

Tired of defending Trump’s bullying and boorish behavior, Coulter asked Trump to “please stop testing our patience on the rest of this stuff.” Indeed, Coulter joked, “I wanna take him to a urologist and get electrodes inserted into what is apparently a very large schlong, and whenever he does something like this I wanna have the button.”

This is the best candidate Coulter could find?

Will Trump Build a Wall?

But is Coulter right? Will Trump build a wall? Is Trump the best candidate on immigration and border security?

The facts say otherwise.

As I and others have pointed out, Trump is a fraud[1] and his positions on immigration and border security are, by his own admission, flexible.[2] Moreover, Trump’s stances on a whole range of issues mirror those of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.

12552672_10204023520427677_4189162351114348637_n

Coulter once championed Trump as her Savior,[3] but perhaps now is coming to see just how deeply flawed[4] he is[5] as a candidate[6] and a person.[7]

Coulter’s fierce support for Trump is seemingly based solely on her perception that Trump is the only candidate who is right on the issue most important to her – immigration – and, therefore, she hates all of the other GOP candidates.[8]

Even though a Trump nomination would spell doom for Conservatism and America,[9] Coulter still sees him as her only hope.

But why would Coulter trust Trump on immigration and border security when he has proven himself a fraud in every other area of life?

Who Will Build a Wall?

Trump first spoke of building a wall when he announced his candidacy last summer. Cruz, on the other hand, actually introduced legislation to do so in 2013.

Despite his rhetoric, Trump has always favored amnesty (touchback deportation). Cruz, however, has held consistent views. From 2012 through 2016, Cruz has sought to build a wall and secure the border, oppose amnesty, eliminate sanctuary cities, and enforce existing laws.

12733567_10206656619387514_4171566598499971446_n

In contrast to Trump and Trump’s dizzyingly shifting positions on every political issue (always with a tilt toward the Left), Ted Cruz has proven his love for God and country.[10]

12593569_10207289963540198_4891376910258271913_o

Cruz’s lifelong love of, and fidelity to, the Constitution puts most of Congress to shame. He is a warrior for the Constitution and Liberty, the perfect antidote to a lawless regime which wields a pen and a phone to circumvent both the Constitution and the will of the People.

Consequently, BrotherWatch has wholeheartedly endorsed Cruz for President![11]

Will Coulter endorse the one candidate who will keep his word on border security and preservation of national sovereignty – Ted Cruz – or will she continue to be a shill for Donald Trump,[12] who, in her own words, is “lowbrow,” a liar, and a fraud?

Coulter Wants to Destroy GOP

Ann Coulter wants to destroy the GOP (and, ultimately, America, in the process).[1]

Donald Trump is Coulter’s current Savior[2] – and America’s, too. So says Ann.

Destroy GOP

For many election cycles, Coulter has promoted RINO candidates and vilified conservative ones. For several years, she has insisted that we always vote R regardless of any questionable conservative credentials of the candidate.

Coulter has defamed the Tea Party,[3] pro-lifers,[4] and Christians[5] – all to promote her RINO of the day.

Coulter has even joyfully contemplated the demise of the Republican Party – all out of pique over its failure to be transformed into her image. (Ironically, Coulter has promoted many candidates who, like her, are unprincipled.)

Now, Coulter insists that we preempt the nominating process in order to coronate her candidate. Her most recent column title says it all: “It’s Time for the Other 13 Candidates to Drop Out.”[6] (My column, “Coulter Hates All GOP Candidates But Trump,”[7] was posted the day before hers.)

Coulter has always regarded herself as a king-maker[8] and has been ever-willing to circumvent the electoral process.[9]

Destroying GOP

Let’s be clear here: Coulter wants to destroy the GOP over immigration using Trump as her weapon.

With whom would she replace the GOP? The Tea Party she has attacked for several election cycles? The genuine conservatives she has trashed in pursuit of her own agenda? Her dwindling fan base?

A gloating Coulter opined, “it’s apparently considered a devastating attack for Republicans to go on Fox News and say, ‘He’s not a real Republican.’ Well, OK, half the country is say, ‘Oh, he’s not? Fantastic!’ … I think this is an incredibly important election year. This could be the end of the Republican Party. It could go the way of the Whigs.”[10]

And again, “With Donald Trump, I think we may be seeing the breakup, ironically, of the Republican Party, like something we haven’t seen since the Republicans broke away from the Whigs.”[11]

As Jamie Weinstein noted, “If [Trump] won it would be the death of the conservative movement.”[12]

Coulter seems to cherish the thought. Why? During Tuesday’s debate, Coulter tweeted: “Audience so stacked with RNC toadies!!!!! I’m surrounded by America’s enemies!”[13]

Coulter has already vilified every Republican candidate (save Trump), saying she hates them.[14] Coulter claims that all of the GOP candidates (save Trump) are awful, embarrassing, and unpatriotic.[15]

What to do with a party you hate, with candidates you regard as America’s enemies? Coulter’s answer: Destroy them!

Time after time, Coulter has stated her goal of destruction, saying, “All we’ll have to do is organize the death panels for the people who destroyed America, and map out whose graves will be desecrated.”[16]

Again, “No, I’m just not getting to the point that I think the only the only thing left for us to do is death squads.”[17]

Again, “Now it’s time to call out the death squads.”[18]

Again, “OK, now it’s time to call out the death squads.”[19]

Coulter’s warning before the 2014 election: “We’ll vote one more time for Republicans. You screw us on immigration, we are done. At that point, there’s no point to anything except organizing the death squads.”[20]

What If?

What if Coulter had backed staunchly conservative candidates[21] instead of her “magnificent” RINOs? (All Republicans, like pundits, are not equal.)

What if Coulter had insisted on principles over pragmatism? (Unscrupulous people don’t have principles.)

What if Coulter has been true to her espoused core beliefs instead of trading them in for a fantasy? (The only thing Coulter seems to believe in is herself.)

What if, instead of vilifying true conservatives, she had kept her mouth shut? (That would truly be a miracle.)

Perhaps we would then have a Republican Congress and White House which abides by the Constitution and pursues a conservative vision for America.

Update:

Writing immediately after Super Tuesday, Liam Donovan contends (emphasis added):

“But whatever divisiveness a contested convention might bring, whatever fissures within the party it might deepen, there would be nothing more destructive to the GOP than a Trump nomination. If anything, taking this to the convention and fighting until the bitter end is a necessary battle for the soul of the party of Lincoln and the movement it has come to be associated with. There can be no catharsis unless the resistance is fierce.”

Coulter Hates All GOP Candidates But Trump

In yet another series of bizarre radio interviews, Ann Coulter expressed her utter contempt for the entire GOP presidential field (with the singular exception of Donald Trump).

HatesGOP

During her rapid-fire rant on the Eric Metaxas Show,[1] Coulter boasted that upon Trump’s nomination she began “dedicating the next 18 months of my life to making sure he becomes the next president.”

Why interview a partisan shill for one candidate about all of the other candidates? What’s the point? How can Coulter’s views be considered valid when she has dedicated herself to ensuring that Trump wins? Especially given her exceedingly long history of lying for those she supports and defaming those she opposes?

Continuing her modus operandi from the 2000,[2] 2004, 2008[3] and 2012[4][5] election cycles, Coulter championed her man and defamed his opponents. Coulter did so this election cycle, supporting Mitt Romney,[6] until Trump appeared on the scene.[7]

On Eric Metaxas Show (11/11/15)

On her friend, Eric Metaxas’ show, Coulter made a demonstrably false claim: “[Trump’s] always been a Republican his whole life.”[8] She went on to say: “I’m proud of my country; I hate these candidates. I think they are awful. They are embarrassing. They are led by the RNC. They do not care about Americans.”

That’s right: All of the GOP candidates (save Trump) are awful, embarrassing, and unpatriotic.

Coulter again, and frequently, lambasted Carly Fiorina[9] (as she has in the past),[10] complaining, “Carly got an applause line. I hate applause lines.” (Now, that’s funny! Doesn’t Coulter live for applause lines?) Coulter continued with her looksist attacks, charging, “She’s a sourpuss. She is. She never smiles.” On another program, Coulter reiterated her complaint: “She’s a sourpuss. … her little Nurse Ratched face.”[11]

As for Ted Cruz, “He’s not a natural born citizen.”[12] Another lie![13] Surprisingly, her friend did not correct her.

Oh, and Coulter wants Jeb Bush to continue his campaign so that he can “attack Ricky Ricardo.”[14] (But, in the summer, Coulter was positive that, barring a Trump victory, either Bush or Rubio would get the nomination.)[15]

Coulter is so confusing because she, herself, is confused.[16]

On Eric Metaxas Show (10/22/15)

On a previous Eric Metaxas Show,[17] Coulter asserted, “I think any Republican – other than Trump – would be a disaster [for America].”

Again, according to Coulter, all of the GOP candidates (save Trump) “would be a disaster [for America].”

Why would they all be a disaster? Because, according to Coulter, they are wrong on immigration. Coulter said:

“The shortcut [to determining whether someone is smart] is ‘Where do you stand on immigration?’ It’s the litmus test of our day. It tells you how bright someone is. It tells you whether they care about the country. It separates the mice from the men.”

Metaxas responded with “Wow!”

Shockingly, Coulter recently admitted, “I’m not even sure I trust Trump to do the right thing on immigration.”[18]

If that is true, then why demonize every other Republican? Because, Trump is Coulter’s kind of elite.[19]

Hates All Republican Candidates (Except Trump)

Coulter condemns every GOP candidate who is not The Donald. “All these eunuchs running in the presidential race against Donald Trump.”[20] Coulter ridicules them all. Over the Thanksgiving holiday, Coulter denounced “the various Bushes – George, Jeb, Shemp, Zeppo – are trying to turn America into Mexico.”[21]

Remember: Coulter was George W. Bush’s biggest supporter for almost eight years; now he is the butt of her jokes. Was she right then, or is she right now?

Coulter openly professes to be a very-biased Trump advocate: “I’m a super-fan [of Trump].”[22]

If that is true (and Coulter boasts that it is), then why do people interview her about Trump and the other candidates? They know she is a partisan hack and a shill for Trump. They know her history of propagandistic commentary (as noted above), that she will say and do anything to give victory to her candidate. So why have her on at all?

Do ratings really matter more than having an honest discussion with people who will eschew ad hominem attacks and cite real facts instead of fabrications?

If Coulter is the best they can do, then we are doomed.

Coulter Belittles Carson and Fiorina – as a black and a woman

Ann Coulter has proven herself to be nothing more than a political hack shilling for Donald Trump (and promoting herself and her book).

CarsonFiorina

Yesterday, Coulter revealed her true feelings about blacks, women, the GOP, and the electorate. Moreover, she justified Trump at every turn while attacking his chief competitors, without regard for either truth or decency. Just as she did with Romney, Coulter defended Trump’s many flip-flips, saying, “I think these [criticisms of Trump’s flip-flopping] are all unfair.”[1]

According to Coulter, Ben Carson and Carly Fiorina are so popular with the people because they are merely novelty candidates: one is a black conservative, the other a female conservative. Yes, Coulter’s lowest common denominator is race and gender. Identity politics is at the heart of the Ann Coulter we have come to know.[2] (Do conservatives really have to emulate Hillary Clinton and the Left’s obsession with identity politics?)[3]

For many years, Coulter has promoted racist and sexist stereotypes[4] which clearly demonstrate how she views blacks, women, the GOP, and the average American voter.

Ben Carson – an Unqualified Black

Asked why she has been so critical of Carson, Coulter caustically blurted, “We’re so happy we have a little black Republican [Ben Carson].” Amazing! Coulter really thinks Carson’s surge in the polls is simply because he is black?

Coulter added, “Oh, we have a woman who’s a Republican, oh, it’s so amazing. Oh, we have a black who’s a Republican. They don’t know what their positions are!” That’s not true! Carson and Fiorina have given many interviews and press conferences espousing their views.

In effect, Coulter is saying that Carson’s only qualification is being black and Fiorina’s only qualification is being a woman. Apart from their racial/gender traits, Coulter thinks that these two individuals are unqualified.

Coulter actually denies the obvious! Ben Carson has phenomenally high favorability ratings. People like Carson. They recognize his genuineness, honesty, and integrity. They appreciate his humble, soft-spoken demeanor, his clarity of thought, and his humor. One might call him the ultimate anti-establishment, anti-Trump candidate.

Carly Fiorina – an Unqualified Girl

Asked about the Fox debate with the lower tier of candidates, Coulter said that she was unimpressed and regarded it as a snooze-fest (feigning an exaggerated snore). A record-setting television audience clearly disagreed.

As for Coulter’s opinion of Fiorina, “No, I have not been impressed with her. … Not only is she wrong on [anchor babies], she’s bossy!”

Bossy? This is the best Coulter can come up with? A sexist cliché?

If anything, Coulter and Trump are the bossy ones. Why not just call Carson an uppity black and Fiorina just a girl. Oh, but she does!

Asked what she thought of CNN revising their debate criteria to conform with reality, Coulter smugly smirked, “No, they’re adding 11 because she’s a girl!”

A girl? Coulter tried that stunt a few weeks ago.[5] (It didn’t work then, either.)

Fiorina is a successful businesswoman who has travelled the world extensively, met with world leaders far more productively than Hillary Clinton ever did, and communicates well her views and her vision for America. She is, also, perhaps quicker on her feet than Coulter. (Oops!)

Like Carson, Fiorina is not a “token” anything. Fiorina trounced the other candidates in her Fox debate. She won the debate and she deserves to be in the top tier in the next debate based upon her performance and her high ranking in the polls. Even her fellow candidates agree.

Ann Coulter – an Unqualified Hack

But Coulter has her own agenda: promoting herself and reshaping America into the image she envisions. As she has done for almost two decades, Coulter has decided who the best GOP candidate is and she is willing to foist that candidate on America regardless of what the rest of America thinks about it.[6]

Ironically, she backed George W. Bush long before his political positions were known (he had a huge war chest at the time), but now she belittles Carson, claiming no one knows his positions.

Coulter has a no-holds-barred, no-quarter-given approach to political discourse. She attacks anyone and everyone who threaten either her agenda or her Chosen One.[7] She defended Romney against all his foes[8] and is now doing so for Trump.[9]

But, truth is the very first casualty in Coulter’s campaign.[10] She gets so many things wrong![11] And, to satisfy her desperate need to have her own way, Coulter willfully risks giving the Democrats the victory in 2016.[12]

Will Coulter’s hubris be the death of America?[13]

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]

Ann Coulter Hates Carly Fiorina

“I’ve turned against [Carly Fiorina] as of yesterday with the hot, hot hate of a thousand suns.”

So said Ann Coulter on today’s Mike Gallagher Show.

CoulterCarly

Asked for her rationale for such an absurd statement, Coulter explained, “At first, I admit I was suspicious because I hate this, ‘Oh, a woman can talk, oh, isn’t that’s great?’”

Yes, Fox News’ preferred political analyst, Ann Coulter, claims Fiorina has risen to the prominence she has is solely because she is a woman who can talk? (Isn’t Coulter on Fox because she can talk?)

Fiorina has acquitted herself very well in defense of Conservatism and of America, so this dismissal of Fiorina as just a woman who can talk is utterly repulsive.

Nevertheless, Coulter continued her misogynist train of thought, claiming,

“But I just hate this affirmative action among Republicans. Look, Republicans, you’re very sweet people. I love that you’re trying to promote someone because, ‘oh, oh, oh, it’s a woman,’ but, women can talk! It’s not breaking news.”

Who is trying to promote Fiorina because she’s a woman? And Coulter would actually approve of that if it were true? Is Coulter really claiming conservatives are employing Hillary’s “I Am Woman, Elect Me” paradigm?

But Coulter’s claim is not true (as is true of so many of her claims). Coulter’s defamation of Fiorina is but the latest in a very long series of defamatory attacks Coulter has made against Republicans who oppose Coulter’s preferred candidates.

Why attack Fiorina today? Because Fiorina dared to criticize “the magnificent Donald Trump Immigration Plan,” specifically his proposal regarding anchor babies.

As a consequence, Coulter hates Fiorina “with the hot, hot hate of a thousand suns.”

Does that make any sense to you?

Perhaps Coulter really is gaga after all.
