Ann Coulter’s “Spawn of Satan Convention”

Just as Coulter claims to abhor Nazi and Fascist imagery, Coulter decries comparisons of conservatives to the Devil:

A novel released in 2004 advocated the assassination of President Bush “for the good of humankind.” Liberal columnist William Raspberry referred to President Bush as “the Devil.” Remember the good old days, during Bush’s honeymoon with the press, when he was just Hitler?”[1]

Spawn

Eschewing demonization, Coulter nevertheless demonizes. Consider alone her books, Godless and Demonic, which clearly demonize the Left in spiritual terms.

One decade ago, Coulter infamously described the Democratic National Convention in near apocalyptic terms, beginning, “Here at the Spawn of Satan Convention …”

Demonic Liberals

Coulter’s first post-9/11 book, Slander, seemingly laid all the evils of the world at the feet of liberals. She began her book:

“Political ‘debate’ in this country is insufferable. Whether conducted in Congress, on political talk shows, or played out at dinners and cocktail parties, politics is a nasty sport. At the risk of giving away the ending: It’s all liberals’ fault.”[2]

Coulter ended her next book, Treason, claiming, “The fundamental difference between liberals and conservatives is: Conservatives believe man was created in God’s image; liberals believe they are God.” Then, in explaining a litany of liberal abuses, Coulter wrote, “because they are gods. … because they are gods. … because they are gods. … they are gods. … they are gods.”[3]

Her last words: “They instinctively root for anarchy and against civilization. The inevitable logic of the liberal position is to be for treason.”[4]

In Godless, Coulter catalogued what she considered an ungodly (anti-God?) religion of the godless:

“Liberals love to boast that they are not ‘religious,’ which is what one would expect to hear from the state-sanctioned religion. Of course liberalism is a religion. It has its own cosmology, its own miracles, its own beliefs in the supernatural, its own churches, its own high priests, its own saints, its own total worldview, and its own explanation of the existence of the universe. In other words, liberalism contains all the attributes of what is generally known as ‘religion.’”[5]

Coulter emphasized the ungodly (un-biblical and un-American) nature of this false religion, writing, “Liberals swoon in pagan admiration of Mother Earth, mystified and overawed by her power. They deny the Biblical idea of dominion and progress, the most ringing affirmation of which is the United States of America.”[6]

In sneering condescension, Coulter continued: “Although they are Druids, liberals masquerade as rationalists, adopting a sneering tone of scientific sophistication, which is a little like being condescended to by a tarot card reader.”[7]

With Demonic, Coulter expanded her critique of liberalism in league with the forces of darkness, noting, “The Democratic Party is the party of the mob, irrespective of what the mob represents.”[8] She then identified the techniques employed by the Left (oddly, techniques employed by Coulter):

“The Democrats’ playbook doesn’t involve heads on pikes – at yet – but uses a more insidious means to incite the mob. The twisting of truth, stirring of passions, demonizing of opponents, and relying on propagandistic images in lieu of ideas – these are the earmarks of a mob leader.”[9]

One book review made a salient observation:

“An author that accuses her opponents of doing things that she immediately, in full view of her readers, does – is either very stupid or very evil. I do not think Ann Coulter is stupid. To use the Bible to back up a pack of lies is disgusting and the devil, Jesus said, is a liar.”[10]
