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.

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?

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]

Honest Ann? Honestly?

Ann Coulter seems intent upon continually out-Coultering herself. Yesterday, she claimed: “If you crave association with honest people, you’ll love Ann Coulter!”[1]

When it comes to truth, Coulter is frequently truth-deprived. Coulter has a trust deficit because she has a truth deficit. (Not unlike Hillary Clinton.)[2]

Honest

Let’s consider Ann’s record over just the past nine weeks, during her current book tour.

Coulter has lied about …

Even after her claims have been debunked, Coulter repeats them – and even amplifies to them.

For quite some time, Coulter has been living in an alternative universe[17] where she envisions and ascribes various and sundry superlatives to herself[18] (best Christian, conservative, libertarian, pro-lifer, etc.).

Why is Coulter not trusted? It all has to do with Coulter’s integrity and veracity,[19] or lack thereof.

To be trusted, one must be trustworthy. Coulter is not.

Conservatives Diss Coulter!

Ann Coulter recently evinced surprise to be criticized by conservatives. Why? Is she just now noticing?

Diss

Since 9/11, many conservatives have frequently found fault with the substance and style of Coulter’s work, as well as with her integrity and veracity. In fact, conservative criticism of Coulter has increased dramatically in recent years.

Yet, Coulter grumbled, “I expect liberals to diss me, but not conservatives.”[1]

Playing the victim card once again,[2] Coulter added, “What is it with me? Is it because I’m a girl?”

No, Ann. It’s because you are not the conservative you claim to be.[3]

Coulter consistently attacks Christians,[4] the Tea Party,[5] pro-lifers,[6] and libertarians,[7] while promoting RINOs[8] – from Chris Christie, to Mitt Romney,[9] to Donald Trump.[10]

As she does so, she issues death threats[11] and tells lies[12] (often whoppers!) about individuals,[13] groups,[14] and even American war heroes.[15]

Ann Coulter – Not a Reagan Conservative

For years, Coulter idolized America’s 40th president, proclaiming herself a Reagan conservative – and proud of it.

No longer.

In her 2004 eulogy for the Gipper,[16] Coulter attacked his grieving family.[17]

Since the 2012 election cycle, Coulter has regarded Mitt Romney as the new and improved Ronald Reagan.[18]

Until Donald Trump announced his candidacy for President, Coulter was so obsessed with a Romney nomination that she engaged in historical revisionism, repeatedly claiming that “[Romney] did better than Reagan did.”[19] Quick to lie about one of the greatest American presidents and a hero to the Right, Coulter falsely asserts:

“In 1980, Reagan won the biggest electoral landslide in history against an incumbent president, Jimmy Carter. Without the last 40 years of immigration, in 2012, Mitt Romney would have won a bigger landslide than Reagan did. He got more of the ‘Reagan coalition’ than Reagan did.”[20]

Is it true? No!

With 1980 demographics, Romney would have received 52% to Obama’s 46% – a 6 point spread. But Reagan won in 1980 with a 10 point lead. In 1980, Reagan received 51% of the popular vote; Carter, 41%.

Immigration is Coulter’s single-issue this election cycle, and, therefore, immigration trumps everything else – including reason, integrity, and veracity.

Now, Coulter looks askance at Reagan and his admirers, bemoaning, “These johnny-come-latelies to Reagan worship seem to think that he was Jesus Christ and could do no wrong.”[21]

A recent Coulter tweet berates conservatives: “GOPs all trying 2 B Reagan in a nation that wld not elect RR today bc of post-1970 immigratn.”

Actually, Ann, Reagan was a visionary who knew what he was talking about and he had a way of connecting with people from all walks of life. He was truly a People’s President. (See my 1997 “Ronald Reagan Special Edition” (28 pp) with tributes from people who knew him best.) I suspect Reagan would have done well in today’s political environment.

Reagan, a charming and compassionate man with character and integrity, was a real winner. (But not good enough for Coulter, whose appreciation of those very qualities is decidedly lacking.)

Ann Coulter – Not a Conservative

As I noted in my CPAC 2002 press kit:[22]

“Let us dispense with this preposterous notion that Ann Coulter is arch-conservative or far-right. Adding arch or ultra to conservative implies more; Coulter is less. Coulter may be arch but she’s not conservative; she may be far but she’s not right.”

Only One Admits to Being a RINO

Ann Coulter proves daily her true identity as a RINO.

Coulter lionizes Mitt Romney, vilifies the Tea Party, and dismisses the Republican presidential field as a “joke.” For Coulter, Romney is the only possible choice.[1]

TwoRINOs

Coulter has again identified Romney as “the most conservative candidate we’ve had to run for President,” even “more conservative than Reagan.”[2] Gushing, Coulter contended, “Mitt Romney was not only the most articulate but the most conservative candidate we’ve ever had.”[3]

Coulter has a plan to achieve her goal: “My plan is still that Romney comes in at the end when conservatives realize that they were lied to by many of their own alleged spokesmen.” How, exactly, this is a “plan,” could be called her plan, and could be accomplished by Coulter has never been explained.

On Sean Hannity’s radio show, Coulter insisted that, in the end, Romney will be the GOP nominee for president in 2016. She boasts, “I’m waiting for Republicans to wake up and realize that Romney was the best they ever had and beg him to get back into the race.”[4]

Coulter blamed the Tea Party and Sarah Palin for Romney declaring that he would not run, saying, “He said ‘No’ because he can’t fight both the New York Times and Sarah Palin.”

Coulter again besmirched those conservatives opposed to Romney, claiming, “You were lied to, right-wingers. You were lied to by people who care more about their careers and think it’s somehow ‘pure’ to run someone who’s a loser.” Coulter continued to berate “alleged right-wingers who go around claiming he was a RINO.”

Romney is a RINO.

Sean Hannity was perplexed by Coulter’s refusal to support any candidate but Romney, saying, “This is you. No matter what I say, you’re gonna say, ‘Mitt Romney.’ He’s not running.”

On Hannity’s television show, Coulter again promoted Romney for president. A puzzled Hannity pointed out that Romney was not running. Coulter reiterated, “I think he’s gonna jump back in when people realize [interrupted].”

Besmirching Republicans everywhere, Coulter claimed, “the only possible candidate who isn’t a joke right now is Scott Walker [as Vice President with Romney as President].”

Coulter was so confident in her analysis and predictions, that she boasted, “And you’ll see! Ann is going to be right. You’ll apologize.”[5]

If neither Romney nor Walker won the nomination, Coulter said “I’ll take a long vacation,” prompting Hannity to ask, “You’re that rigid now?”

Three years after Romney’s disastrous defeat – foisted on America in large part due to Coulter’s incessant proselytizing for Romney and demonization of Romney’s conservative opponents – Coulter remains in denial over that debacle and the part she played in reelecting Obama in 2012.

Moreover, Coulter is employing the very same techniques now that she did then: lionize Romney and demonize the Tea Party. All while denying that she and Romney are, in fact, RINOs.

Is Coulter as Corrupt as Clinton?

Coulter has written yet another diatribe[1] against Hillary Clinton, again contending that “the smartest woman in the world is not only arrogant and corrupt, but incredibly stupid.”[2]

To prove her point, Coulter lists a series of scandals and controversies, culminating with Hillary’s destruction of public records. But, as I’ve contended, this is not proof of stupidity. Rather, it is further proof of arrogance and corruption.

Corrupt

According to Coulter, Hillary must be stupid to be involved in so many scandals and behave so unethically – so often![3]

Coulter’s reasoning: “I think Hillary’s just really dumb. … it’s so stupid, it is such a self-inflicted wound … With her, it’s always – it’s just something that is so stupid.”[4]

But is that true? Let’s take Coulter for an example. Her intelligence has never been questioned by me. At times, she is brilliant.[5] But she is also integrity-challenged. One scandal or controversy after another.[6]

Consider this sampling. Coulter has …

Are these the actions of a bright person, or a stupid one?

IQ is not the parameter. The answer lies elsewhere: integrity.

But Coulter has always felt superior to most people, even to her peers and her colleagues.[17]

Coulter was born and bred an elite who came to believe her own press.[18]

Ann and Hillary share so many character traits[19] that Coulter had to find something to differentiate herself from Clinton. That something – stupidity – is a smokescreen. Coulter would prefer to believe that Clinton is stupid as opposed to “corrupt and venal,”[20] because those are traits she shares with the former First Lady.

Hillary has survived this long because she knows how to manipulate the system; she possesses money, power, and influence; and she has a network of colleagues and friends who will protect her no matter what she does. Hillary keeps getting away with immoral, illegal, and unethical behavior because she has never been held accountable for that behavior. Her ability to arrogantly get away with every escapade emboldens her in her arrogance and encourages further escapades.

The entire paragraph above applies equally to Ann.

Fifty Shades of Coulter

Ann Coulter can be brilliant and she can be abominablebut she doesn’t know the difference!

Over the last ten weeks, Coulter has reached the pinnacle of literary inspiration and she plumbed the depths of demagoguery. She has spanned the spectrum from laudable to deplorable!

Shades

Golden Girl

In March, Coulter penned a brilliant parody of Obama.[1] This was by far one of her best columns – ever! I would consider it the high-water-mark of her commentary. It spectacularly satirized the Obama administration in matters foreign and domestic, truly grasping the mindset of those she ridicules.

Truth is at the very heart of her hysterically funny parody. Coulter captured the essence of Obama’s rhetoric, worldview, agenda, and way of thinking. Indeed, while reading Ann’s words, one can hear Obama’s voice – his diction, intonation, emphasis – as if he were actually saying those words.

The best humor, after all, is rooted in reality.

Brilliant!

In April, in a passionate defense of Christians and of the First Amendment, Coulter praised Middle American Christians for their faith and courage in standing up to the forces of political correctness, while appropriately denouncing political and religious leaders who have failed to do so.

Coulter said: “These small-town owners of [Memories Pizza] have more Christian courage than most Christian leaders and certainly the Republican Party.”[2] She added, “the one thing every Christian should have is courage. … Go out and fight.”

Rape Hoaxes

Coulter also wrote a series of well-thought-out columns addressing political correctness, phony hoaxes, and the like.

Last December, Coulter admonished the media and the Left for uncritically promoting these hoaxes. She raised a good point: “If we’re in the middle of a college-rape epidemic, why do all the cases liberals promote keep turning out to be hoaxes? Maybe I’m overthinking this, but wouldn’t a real rape be more persuasive?”[3]

She made that same point on Hannity: “If we’re drowning in this epidemic of rape on college campuses, why are all the cases they keep giving us hoaxes? Could they give us a real one? And in fact, what it illustrates is an epidemic of false claims of rape.”[4]

On April 1st, Coulter asserted, “Whenever one of these conscience-shocking stories is promoted to front-page status by The New York Times and involves … a campus rape … you can be pretty confident it’s a hoax.”[5] Except …

Her latest column on rape hoaxes was well done, except its title belied its content.[6] It asked, “Can the Left Come Up With One True Story?” The answer – not addressed in her column – is “Yes!” The Vanderbilt gang rape, which has resurfaced in the news.

(It is a pity that Coulter has become the spokesperson for rape, given her own history of trivializing that vile behavior.)[7]

Absurdum Redux

Last summer, liberals and conservatives alike skewered Coulter for her polemical and outrageous commentary[8] – from diatribes against soccer[9] to tirades denouncing Christian missionaries as traitors.[10]

I thought we were past all that, but, alas, no!

Shades01

Coulter recently boasted that her first soccer column was one of her best, even calling it “magnificent.”[11] She has returned to attacking Christian missionaries,[12] charging, “that these Christians would rather get praise from the New York Times, Nicholas Kristof by changing bed pans of Ebola patients in Nigeria rather than stand up to the New York Times and fight against abortion and fight against these bullies.”[13]

In her defense of courageous Christians (noted above), she attacked these noble Christians, charging, “You’re afraid of being sneered at by the New York Times?”

Coulter’s eulogy for M. Stanton Evans[14] follows her habit of capitalizing on the death of others by using eulogies for partisan purposes.[15]

Coulter petulantly denounced CPAC for not inviting her to speak at its conference this year.[16] She expected to be asked to speak at CPAC. She felt she deserved to be invited to speak. Indeed, she felt entitled to speak. Therefore, in her eyes, CPAC was obliged to invite her.

Arrogance keeps cropping up in her work and her behavior!

Romney Mania

Coulter remains fanatical in her advocacy for a Romney presidential run in 2016.[17] To this very day!

She asserts, “No, with Mitt Romney we had someone who could win, who will win again.”[18]

Coulter continually compares Romney to Reagan, claiming, “[Romney] was better than Ronald Reagan.”[19] She emphasized that Reagan made a lot of gaffes and claimed that Romney made none! “[Romney’s] alleged gaffes, and I’m just not seeing it.”[20] Coulter so effortlessly jettisoned down the memory hole scores of Romney gaffes.[21]

Gaffes

Continuing, “[Romney] won more of the white vote than Ronald Reagan did in 1980. So, don’t tell me he is a suck-ass candidate. He crushed Obama.”[22]

Romney crushed Obama? Crushed?

Romney ran.

Romney lost.

Romney lost to the worst president in American history!

Shades03

Still smitten with Romney and in denial over his ignominious defeat (and her complicity in that defeat), Coulter blindly defends and promotes him as the GOP’s political savior. Even though Romney is not running, he is the only candidate Coulter will consider for nomination: “They lost the best candidate they ever had with Romney. I think they’ll call him back by acclamation.”[23]

Coulter’s presidential fantasy for 2016 is that Republicans loseto prove Coulter right! She said, “No [I won’t give up on Romney], because I was right!”[24] In that context, she envisioned Scott Walker in a presidential debate, and said, “I just think people are going to see [Walker] on stage … and think, ‘Damn, I wish that were Romney up there.’”

Just a few days ago, Coulter commended Romney for withdrawing his candidacy: “I think Romney totally did the right thing by withdrawing.”[25] Why? To prove that Coulter was right all along. Coulter wants to gloat!

“I think Republican primary voters are gonna look up at whomever the last two are standing [at the end of the nominating process] … and say, ‘Wow! We totally blew it by not running Romney again. Then Romney gets it and, ha ha, we win.”

(Ann, that’s not the way elections work! A nominee can’t be spontaneously coronated at a convention without having already gone through the primary process.)

RINOs

Coulter’s arrogance is continually on display in how she treats those who disagree with her political views – even among conservatives.

Though claiming to be a Tea Partier, she abandoned the Tea Party during the 2012 election cycle to support Romney, whom many Tea Partiers opposed. In like manner, she has favored many RINOs for Congress, while claiming otherwise. She has recently discovered that RINOs … vote like RINOs.[26]

Coulter attacks “alleged Republican spokesmen or news analysts,”[27] “fake Tea Party groups,”[28] and “alleged Tea Party for saying that Romney wasn’t tough enough and he should have said this and he should have said that.”[29]

Even though RINOs vote like RINOs, Coulter objects to non-establishment conservatives who “consider it a measure of their purity and their integrity to only run a candidate who will lose.”[30] In other words, real conservatives can’t win an election?

Coulter continued her harangue:

“And that’s what happened with Mitt Romney. … What was it Sarah Palin had against Romney other than he could actually win? For the first time ever, it was the conservatives who had tricked the establishment into supporting their candidate.”

Except, Romney was the establishment – as everyone but Ann realizes.

Again calling the Tea Party a mob, Coulter complains, “Now I do see a little bit of this mob mentality on the Right. And that is, just to shout out at people ‘RINO,’ ‘establishment.’ Well, unlike the mob aspect of the right wing, I actually read people’s positions and what they have done.”[31]

Yes, Coulter knows better than us mere mortals. It seems that Coulter does not know what a RINO really is. She gets the Republican part pretty well, but not the In Name Only part.

Does Coulter seem confused? She is. Consider her explanation:

“But it became kind of a mark of the fake Tea Party groups, and I don’t mean regular Americans. My conversation can get very confusing. I was explaining to one of my friends: when I say Tea Partier I either mean salt-of-the-earth, regular, nice American or I mean a sleazy, conman, faker whose ripping off conservatives. So it does get confusing. So I don’t mean the regular people. You saw it with all of these Tea Party runs against suspect Republicans …”[32]

Wait! Coulter uses the same term – “Tea Partier” – to refer to two opposing groups of people? I can well imagine that her “conversation can get very confusing.” The thing is, Coulter’s confusing way of speaking about these issues derives from her confusing way of thinking about these issues.

Coulter has to morph the language to fit her thoughts so that people can reach her conclusions. Coulter has twisted language and logic for over half-a-decade to justify foisting an establishment Republican upon the Conservative Movement, hailing him a purer-than-Reagan conservative.

Coulter continues to pretzel-twist language and logic in order to square the circle.

Hillary Clinton = Ann Coulter?

Arrogance again emerges whenever Coulter talks about Hillary Clinton.[33] Coulter repeatedly calls Clinton “just really dumb. … the dumb one … so massively stupidso stupid … she’s dumb … she is dumb.”[34]

It’s a theme she cannot turn away from, saying “It raises an IQ question that she would do this again.”[35] And, “I think probably a lot of them are starting to wonder ‘why would she do something this stupid?”[36]

Coulter disagrees with those who view Hillary’s various scandals – from Benghazi and foreign donations to deleted emails and other violations of law – as resulting from sheer stupidity and not from moral defects or psychological flaws. Coulter claims, “It’s not just arrogance. It’s not just cronyism. This is just pure, blind stupidity.”[37]

Coulter dismisses Hillary’s arrogance for one reason: it is commensurate with her own.

Coulter has been an expert on Bill and Hillary Clinton since the mid-1990s. She once said that she views the whole of life through the prism of the Clintons.

Coulter called Hillary a prostitute for marrying Clinton[38] and an unfit mother for staying married to Clinton.[39] For Coulter, it was always a character issue with Hillary: “Her whole persona is a lie. Her being is a lie. She’s a lie.”[40]

Suddenly, in 2015, Coulter has had an epiphany. It is no longer a character issue. Hillary is merely stupid?

In a remarkable twist of fate, Ann shares many traits with Hillary.[41]

Perhaps it is for that very reason that Coulter rejects Clinton’s psychological dysfunctions (which she shares) – hubris, sense of entitlement, corrupted by power, etc. – and opts for dismissing Clinton as simply too stupid.

Immigration = ISIS

Proffering a particularly provocative perspective, Coulter dismissed concern for ISIS and claimed illegal aliens are more dangerous than ISIS.[42]

With unmistakable clarity, Coulter said, “The common enemy are the Democrats! Haven’t I made that clear. I don’t even care about ISIS!”[43]

Very insistent – and wrong in her assertions – Coulter contends, “I don’t think we are vulnerable to ISIS. I can protect any American from ISIS right now, don’t go to Syria. Problem solved. ISIS is not 9/11. Stop talking about ISIS.”[44] And, “all we hear about, day in, day out is ISIS.”[45]

Coulter even asserted a conspiratorial argument, claiming, “Whenever the media starts obsessing with ISIS, I think you’re hiding something. And you’re hiding something on the Democrats, who themselves, when they’re running for office, say, ‘Oh, no, of course I don’t support Obama’s executive amnesty.’ Now they’re down there filibustering it! Do Americans even know that?”[46]

Remarkably, conservatives gave her plenty of uncritical attention, in stark contrast to that given Bernie Chambers, Nebraska State Senator, who claimed, “Nobody from ISIS ever terrorized us as a people as the police do daily.”

For instance, all of the co-hosts of The Five chastised Chambers:[47]

  • Julie Roginsky: “They take it to an insane point where, instead of making your case, you start comparing people to ISIS.”
  • Kimberly Guilfoyle: “It’s just so insulting and so disrespectful. I mean, this kind of rhetoric, why does this guy even have a job? I don’t understand why people tolerate this kind of nonsense.”
  • Dana Perino: “Use your words, use your reasoning and your logic, bring your facts, bring your statistics. The thing is, reckless and irresponsible rhetoric like this could lead to him needing protection.”
  • Greg Gutfeld: “There’s always somebody comparing somebody to Hitler. That will never go away. They’ll say you’re worse than Hitler. No matter what, that’s what they’re going to say.”
  • Eric Bolling: “Look at everyone – it’s coming from the left. It’s coming from liberals.”

Sorry, Eric, but your friend, Ann, frequently makes ISIS and Hitler comparisons without regard for truth.[48]

Liberals’ Nazi Propaganda and Tactics

While making valid arguments opposed to various race hoaxes, Coulter employed Nazi illusions,[49] writing,

“Is this the kind of society we want to live in, where a student can record his intoxicated friends singing a nasty song, and the whole country applauds the Nazi block-watcher and joins in the denunciation of his marks?” Lest we miss her point, Coulter called this student an “aspiring Stasi member.”

In a repellent column (which made some good points in a bad way), Coulter attacked ABC news anchor David Muir for his looks and accused him of being a Nazi.[50] Calling him a “pretty boy,” Coulter argued that Muir’s summary of an event was “nothing short of Goebbels-like propaganda.”

Coulter concluded her diatribe: “A prettier face, but the same old propaganda.”[51]

Mengele

Coulter on the Offensive

Coulter boasted in 2006: “A word to those of you out there who have yet to be offended by something I have said: Please be patient. I am working as fast as I can.”

Yet, she claims, “I don’t think my opinions are controversial.”[52]

Squaring the circle can be difficult at times.

But, Coulter’s prime directive since the turn of the millennium has been to offend. Coulter is adept at offending.[53]

She compared libertarians to special needs children: “The problem with libertarians is – and it’s perfectly illustrated in Rand Paul’s case – is they’re like special needs children. They need extra work because they take these wild-eyed libertarian positions.”[54]

(Meanwhile, she ludicrously asserts, “I’m not a Libertarian, though I’m more libertarian than most libertarians.”)[55]

She continues to employ elimination rhetoric:[56] ““I would totally take the Chinese approach and kill them [liberals] all”[57] and “we’ll have to do is organize the death panels for the people who destroyed America, and map out whose graves will be desecrated.”

Temper

Coulter compared Obama to would-be assassin John Hinckley: “It’s like, you know, ‘Has John Hinckley called to congratulate Ronald Reagan yet?’”[58]

Coulter is now a proponent of widespread nuclear attacks: “I am now a pacifist in favor of the liberal use of nukes.”[59] And, she’s not joking!

“I’ve become a pacifist in favor of lots of nukes and daisy cutters. … We oughta just deploy nukes far and wide when necessary and not waste any more American lives.”[60]

Recently asked, “How do you come up with this stuff?” Coulter candidly replied, “Blind rage!”[61] This comes as no surprise to anyone. Coulter has been motivated by blind rage for most of her professional career.[62]

Coulter on Coulter

In much of her commentary, Coulter is sharp, incisive, spot-on. But in far too many areas, the chasm between Coulter’s perception and actual reality is far too wide. Coulter’s self-perceptions are particularly divergent from reality.[63]

Shades02

Coulter has always wanted to believe herself among the crème-de-la-crème.[64] She has always envisioned herself better than the rest.[65] Consider these remarks:

  • “I’m always … I’m always right.”[66]
  • “My thought is that everyone should just listen to me because I do[67]
  • “I write about it in my very first New York Times’ best-seller, High Crimes and Misdemeanors.”[70]
  • “I’m thinking we may have to move [the release date] up. The country needs [my new] book. … this is the best one ever.”[71]
  • “I’ve been finishing my page proofs for my magnificent new book that comes out June 1st.”[72]

Coulter’s inaccurate perceptions about herself, others, and reality itself; her inability to either repent or to forgive; her purposeful character assassination of others; her eager employment of elimination rhetoric; and her refusal to do what she knows is the right thing to do – these are all emblematic of and a consequence of her vanity.[73]

Coulter current speech title is “Republicans Could Win, If They’d Stop Doing Some of the Things They’re Doing.” Yeah, they could stop listening to Coulter!

Coulter Discovers RINOs will be … RINOs

Coulter was for Mitch McConnell before she was against Mitch McConnell. Coulter has favored RINOs for years and is “shocked, shocked” when they act like RINOs.[1]

DiscoversRINOs

For years, conservatives have warned Coulter about McConnell (just as they did with Romney).[2] Coulter never listens to anyone but herself.

Coulter Loves McConnell, Not Cruz

Two years ago, Coulter praised McConnell, calling him “the Ted Cruz on campaign finance reform … Mitch McConnell was so strong on that, was so brave, was attacked by the media, never backed down. And just one other point – he is leader of the Senate … he has to gather all the Republicans together.”[3]

Yet, Coulter opposes Cruz and insists we should not primary Republican candidates like McConnell. Coulter said, “We can’t get anything done unless we have a majority in the Senate. So stop blowing Senate races for Republicans. That’s a big lesson from this.”

For years, but especially since the 2012 election, Coulter has lambasted the Tea Party and insisted that we elect “Republicans” irrespective of their actual ideological purity.

But Coulter’s political playbook does not work,[4] as McConnell himself proves.

Coulter was so entranced with McConnell that she refused to acknowledge any negatives about him, prompting Glenn Beck to say, “I’m sorry, Ann, you’re out of your mind crazy if you think that Mitch McConnell had nothing to do … with a two billion dollar work project in his state.”[5]

Nevertheless, Coulter was ecstatic at the thought of a McConnell-Boehner dynamic duo courageously confronting Obama on key issues. As she told Hannity,

“If we have the Senate, too, with Mitch McConnell and John Boehner passing repeals of Obamacare and terrific things, the media won’t be able to keep maintaining its Republicans who are doing nothing but passing birth control laws. They will have to report on the bills that get passed out of both houses of Congress and our do-nothing president keeps vetoing. That will set up a presidential candidate very well for 2016. This is a very important election, please, Republicans.”[6]

Coulter’s Paean to McConnell

One year ago, Coulter wrote a paean to McConnell in which she called anti-establishment Tea Party conservatives a “mob” and insisted McConnell is not an establishment RINO.[7]

Coulter claimed, “For months and months, for example, I’ve been demanding facts – not shibboleths or epithets – from the anti-Mitch McConnell brigade.”

But Coulter has studiously, myopically, and willfully ignored the facts presented against McConnell.

Coulter asserted, “There are breathless headlines all over the Internet claiming, ‘McConnell Supports Amnesty!’ but when you click on them, the links don’t work and the claims don’t make sense.”

Except, of course, the senselessness was really coming from Coulter.

Coulter continued: “I know this from looking up McConnell’s actual voting record, as opposed to reading nonsensical jeremiads against McConnell on the RedState blog.”

Coulter mocked her opponents: “Here’s the counter-argument from the anti-McConnell crowd: HE’S A RINO! HE’S AN ESTABLISHMENT REPUBLICAN! HE’S BEEN A TERRIBLE LEADER! MITCH LIED, KIDS DIED!”

Except, of course, the “anti-McConnell crowd” was right.

After an historic victory last November, the first thing McConnell promised was that there would be no government shutdown. Isn’t that like Obama taking off the table “boots on the ground” before negotiating with an enemy?

Likening the Tea Party to a mob, Coulter added: “Ladies and Gentlemen, there you have all the attributes of a mob: Slogans in lieu of logic and evidence, beliefs impenetrable by facts, emotional hatred of the ‘enemy’ and the acceptance of wild contradictions.”

But the Tea Party was correct. McConnell should have been primaried. Coulter has a habit of preferring RINOs to the Tea Party.

Coulter repeatedly tried to convince Hannity of her point of view, saying, “As I said on this program a few weeks ago, if you want to see who’s really going after the establishment, I wanna hear they’re going after someone who supports amnesty. … The only thing standing between us and amnesty right now is Mitch McConnell.”[8]

McConnell caved without a fight!

Coulter Knows Best!

Just a few weeks ago, Coulter again claimed to know what’s best for America.

Coulter’s pride and arrogance were on full display as she attacked prominent conservative leaders: “Rush Limbaugh, Sarah Palin, all the alleged conservatives.”[9]

Coulter claimed that those people – Limbaugh, Palin, alleged conservatives – don’t read and don’t know what they are talking about, in contradistinction to Coulter, who boasted: “My thought is that everyone should just listen to me because I do read.”

In that interview, Coulter again compared Romney to Reagan,[10] as she has done since Romney’s disastrous defeat in 2012:

“Romney is the ferocious Terminator on immigration, but these idiot conservatives – because he looks good in a suit, he looks presidential, he got more of the white vote than Ronald Reagan did in 1980 – ‘no, we must hate him.’”

Yes, Coulter called Limbaugh, Palin, and the Tea Party “idiot conservatives.”

Coulter again reiterated her three-year-old political playbook:[11] vote Republican regardless of their ideology.

“There is a suicidal tendency on the part of some conservative activists – not you and me, we actually care about the country – which is to say, their idea of what constitutes a ‘true conservative’ means ‘anyone the big money people don’t like.’ So, if you don’t have a chance to be president, that’s the one that ends up getting anointed – the ‘true conservative.’”

Did you notice that those “idiot conservatives” – Limbaugh, Palin, Tea Party – also don’t “actually care about the country?”

Coulter continued her jaundiced view of the Tea Party, insisting, “Many conservatives determine who a ‘true’ conservative is by who is most likely to lose. That really proves your conservative bonafides.”

But wait, didn’t Romney lose?[12]

In settling for less than Romney, conservative powerhouse Ann Coulter expressed her confidence that she could “influence” a President Walker or President Cruz to follow her immigration prescription.

In the summer of 2014, Coulter demanded that Republicans obey her orders: “We can’t just abandon the field right now. You have to vote Republican, even for crap-ass Republicans, and I would name them but I’m not going to. You have to vote Republican.”[13]

Coulter commanded Republicans and Libertarians to resist primarying an incumbent (or establishment) Republican: “Why are we attacking Republicans right now? There are a lot of bad Republicans, there are no good Democrats. The country is in the balance. You have to vote Republican right now!”

But “crap-ass Republicans” – by definition – will not vote conservative.

And didn’t.

Coulter Sees RINOs will be RINOs (sort of)

Aghast at the Senate’s repeated capitulation to Obama’s amnesty actions, Coulter finally recognized McConnell’s cowardice, sort of. (To be fair, he is behaving as the establishment Republican he has always been.)

Coulter complained – of her courageous hero – that he had sold out to the media, saying:

“Mitch McConnell will get all kinds of dividends on this from editorials in the New York Times. They will be praising his bravery. It takes a lot of courage – takes lots of courage to betray your constituents, to break your promises in the interest of bipartisanship and that is what Mitch McConnell is going for. No, of course this is a total cave.”[14]

Coulter also penned a polemic attacking all of those “crap-ass Republicans” that she insisted we vote for.

Coulter wrote:

“Back when they needed our votes before the last election, Republicans were hairy-chested warriors, vowing to block Obama’s unconstitutional ‘executive amnesty’ – if only voters gave them a Senate majority. The resulting Republican landslide suggested some opposition to amnesty.”[15]

Coulter continued:

“Before the election, then-Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell complained that Obama’s decision to delay his executive amnesty until after the election was a ploy to prevent Americans from ‘hold(ing) his party accountable in the November elections.’”

Coulter continued:

“Now McConnell is Senate majority leader – and he claims his hands are tied.”

Coulter continued:

“If a Republican majority in both houses of Congress can’t stop Obama from issuing illegal immigrants Social Security cards and years of back welfare payments, there is no reason to vote Republican ever again.”

But wasn’t that the Tea Party’s point? If you elect RINOs, you get Republicans In Name Only.

But just last night, Coulter defended the GOP cave in on what she regards as an existential threat to America. She said, “I blame the media more than the Republicans.”[16]

What? We elected Republicans, not the media.

RINOs will always behave like RINOs! When will Coulter learn?

Update: McConnell keeps caving!

Propaganda: Orwell in the Age of Ann Coulter

For almost two decades, Ann Coulter has proven herself untrustworthy.[1] From betraying her own client[2] and scamming voters,[3] to using lies and employing elimination rhetoric,[4] Coulter has shown herself to be unscrupulous – all in the pursuit of self-promotion and self-glory.[5]

A new book – Propaganda: Orwell in the Age of Ann Coulter – delves into the various ways in which Coulter promotes herself and her worldview, and it examines why so many people can come to believe her distortions and lies, even when confronted with a wealth of irrefutable evidence.

FrontCover

That Coulter retains any credibility at all – despite her pathological prevarication, her eager employment of elimination rhetoric, and her enmity to all who do not fit into her scheme of life – is perhaps the mystery of the ages. Propaganda endeavors to explain the seemingly inexplicable.

In a startling manner, Coulter audaciously adopted Orwell’s iconic 1984[6] as a blueprint for her own career. What totalitarian governments and dictators do on a national and international level, Coulter does on a somewhat smaller scale. Ever ideological, always self-promoting, Coulter uses the tactics and techniques, the verbiage and the principles, of 1984 to pursue her own agenda. Where that agenda collides with conservative principles or Christian values, those interests become subservient to her own.

If George Orwell is the Father of Big Brother, then he is the cherished uncle of Ann Coulter. Coulter certainly seems more at home with 1984 then she does with either the Bible or the Constitution.

Propaganda: Orwell in the Age of Ann Coulter is structured in a simple fashion.

Chapter One compares and contrasts Coulter with Nazi propagandist Leni Riefenstahl.

Chapter Two provides a humorous review of a fictitious Ann Coulter book, Delusional, in which all of the quotations contained therein are from Coulter, demonstrating the schizophrenia of Coulter’s own self-identity.

Chapter Three examines Coulter’s first distinctly Orwellian book, Slander, and its incorporation of many Orwellian propaganda techniques. It further looks at Coulter’s own addiction to addictive thinking and its implication in her work.

With Chapter Four, we see the pervasiveness of Orwellian thinking as it is exhibited in Coulter’s third book, Treason, which is steeped in the thought processes of 1984. This chapter explores the many and varied Orwellian techniques and constructs employed by Coulter in Treason.

Chapter Five looks at Coulter’s first compilation of essays, How to Talk to a Liberal (if you must), which is an instruction book – or, How To manual – for conservatives.

A series of case studies then fleshes out the reality of Coulter’s utilization of propaganda and its political and cultural impact.

An Epilog renders hope possible in the life and work of Coulter.

An Appendix critiques an (almost) perfect piece of propaganda by Coulter.

Delusional – New Ann Coulter Book

EXCLUSIVE: New Book by Ann Coulter is a personal memoir!

We have obtained an advance copy of Ann Coulter’s latest top secret book. The nine-time New York Times best-selling author is soon to publish a memoir revealing her innermost thoughts and feelings. The beloved and despised “conservative” polemicist and “Christian” provocateur talks candidly about herself and her aspirations.

Coulter’s soon-to-be-released new book, Delusional, is subtitled, “If I Were Czar of the Universe …” and, in it, Coulter exposes her inner being. In a rare moment of candor, Coulter admits, “Ann Coulter engages in ad hominem attacks. Ann Coulter is insane.”[1]

In Delusional, you will discover the heart and soul of Ann Hart Coulter, who wants to be both a star and a czar, as she reveals her innermost self-perceptions, regardless of how divergent they are from reality.

Delusional

Among Coulter’s many whimsical fantasies about herself are her claims to be “more libertarian than most libertarians,” “more Tea Party than most tea partiers,” “totally pro-life,” and “an extraordinarily good Christian.” Yes, she even wants to be “czar of the universe,” despite acknowledging the totalitarian nature of that rank.

Here are some extracts for your amusement and edification.

Get ready to be captivated by the pundit who is captivated by herself!

All quotes are direct quotes from Coulter – vintage Ann Hart Coulter.

Introduction: “If I Were Czar of the Universe …”[2]

“Every once in a while I sit back and think what the world would be like if I were czar. And, if I were czar, I think my position would be that private institutions can do whatever they want to do and only the government can’t discriminate. … If I were czar of the universe, I would say that a private organization can do whatever it wants to, and, yes, it can discriminate on the base of race.”[3]

“But if I were the czar of the universe, she would be allowed to get away with it … I think a teacher or a school ought to be able to … on the basis of gender, race, the color of their hair. As long as it’s not the government, I think a private university ought to be able to do whatever it wants to.”[4]

“(This elusive concept is admittedly difficult to grasp, especially if you are a Supreme Court justice and prefer to think of yourself as ‘Czar of the Universe.’)”[5]

“You’re not Czar of the Universe anymore, SCOFLA.”[6]

“And I started asking my liberal friends, ‘What are you afraid of? If Tom DeLay were czar of the universe, what are you afraid he’d do?’”[7]

“I’m like the conservative ayatollah.”[8]

“You see – I really do need to be the ayatollah of this [conservative] movement.”[9]

CHAPTER 1: “I’m a middle-of-the-road moderate and the rest of you are crazy.”[10]

“There’s nothing more attractive than a rabid conservative.”[11]

“[I’m] right-wing crazy and proud of it.”[12]

“I’m second to none in right-wing lunacy.”[13]

“I went to Cornell, but I was a casual conservative. After being in Ithaca, NY, I left a violent conservative.”[14]

CHAPTER 3: “I’m more libertarian than most libertarians”[15]

“I’m more libertarian than most people who call themselves libertarian.”[16]

“I’m libertarian on everything except morality.”[17]

“[I regret] when I was 14 and briefly libertarian.”[18]

“My libertarian friends are probably getting a little upset now but I think that’s because they never appreciate the benefits of local fascism.”[19]

“My complaint with [my libertarian friends] is, they don’t appreciate the virtues of local fascism.”[20]

“Libertarian Party – capital ‘L’ – can end up being a little pointless and a little cowardly, I mean, just to attack both parties – ‘Oh, it’s both the Republicans and the Democrats.’ No. Come on! It really isn’t.”[21]

“I think people often claim to be libertarians, most people don’t even know what you’re talking about. It sort of sounds like ‘liberal,’ and I just think it’s sort of the cowardly thing to say.”[22]

“This is why people think libertarians are pussies. … You know, if you’re a little more manly you would tell them what your position on employment discrimination is. How about that? But it’s always ‘We want to legalize pot.’”[23]

“[9/11 truthers] are like libertarians that way. They take facts but the logic just falls off the cliff. They take facts and they weave them together …”[24]

“A lot of libertarians are godless. … So many of your rank-and-file libertarians are cowards because they’re godless and believing in God does not allow you to be a coward.”[25]

“If Rand Paul thinks black people are rooting for black crack dealers to go free, he’s even crazier than his old man.”[26]

[Asked, Are you for Ron Paul or Sarah Palin?]: “Probably Sarah Palin. But my candidate for President in 2012 is Governor of New Jersey, Chris Christie.”[27]

“I think we can do without the tea partiers and libertarians.”[28]

“If you are considering voting for the Libertarian candidate in any Senate election, please send me your name and address so I can track you down and drown you.”[29]

“[If the GOP loses] Republicans were done in by a circular firing squad. Republicans will lose hope, it will be a downward spiral of defeat and all that will be left to do is track down the people responsible and kill them.”[30]

“Libertarians and tea partiers, you were fantastic this election. I have a lot on my plate right now, so it’s kind of a relief that I’m not going to have to drown you.”[31]

CHAPTER 4: “I’m more Tea Party than most tea partiers”[32]

“I speak at a lot of Tea Parties, know a lot of them, and I think I am one.”[33]

“I suppose I consider myself a Tea Partier.”[34]

“I think we can do without the tea partiers and libertarians.”[35]

“… then you have the base – these tea partiers – running off and causing Republicans to lose elections. But for elections lost by Republican consultants and/or the Tea Party, we would already have [a Republican majority in the Senate].”[36]

“I think he’s [Jim DeMint] been paid off by Soros.”[37]

“On their ‘About’ page, [the Senate Conservative Fund] won’t tell me who runs it – George Soros, George Soros, George Soros. … I think a lot of these Tea Party groups are George Soros fronts.”[38]

“Oh I remember, the tea party’s darling is @marcorubio, spokesman for the tea party on amnesty. No, I won’t be ‘joining’ that party.”[39]

“Please get their addresses [of Chris McDaniel’s supporters] for me so I can fly in and hold their heads under the water until the bubbles stop.”[40]

“Without tea party challenges and greedy Republican consultants, Republicans would be looking at 59 senate seats in the next Congress.”[41]

“Libertarians and tea partiers, you were fantastic this election. I have a lot on my plate right now, so it’s kind of a relief that I’m not going to have to drown you.”[42]

“In return for the tea party not being spasmodic and pushing crazy candidates this election, the GOP establishment had better abandon its corporate-benefactor-pleasing ways.”[43]

CHAPTER 6: “I am totally pro-life.”[44]

“I enthusiastically embrace the death penalty [in the context of 14-year-old murderers].”[45]

“Sometimes people are innocent of the crime they were sentenced to death for, but perhaps not all crimes.”[46]

“I think that every day when I take the New York City subway. … I would like to kill all of them. I can analyze that and stop myself from killing people on a New York City street.”[47]

“Once you’ve committed a violent crime, I say, ‘death penalty.’ Why do we waste time with the prisons? I would give Chuck Colson one year of Prison Ministries. If you turn them into a Christian, they can go. Otherwise, death!”[48]

“Take the Virginia governor’s race. [GOP candidate] Ken Cuccinelli is down about 10 points. Guess what the libertarian is polling at? Ten points! We need some strategic hunting accidents, airplane crashes. We need Luca Brasi in our party.”[49]

“It’s not the position of the National Right To Life Committee that a woman should carry the baby of her rapist. I think our position is, ‘No, absolutely exceptions for rape and incest.’”[50]

“Those few abortionists were shot, or, depending on your point of view, had a procedure with a rifle performed on them. I’m not justifying it, but I do understand how it happened.”[51]

“I don’t really like to think of it as a murder. It was terminating Tiller in the 203rd trimester.”[52]

“W.W.J.K.: Who Would Jesus Kill?”[53]

Uniter

CHAPTER 7: “I’m an extraordinarily good Christian.”[54]

“I do believe in heaven. I’m what C.S. Lewis called ‘the worst sort of Christian.’ I believe enough to feel really miserable about not being a saint, and not enough to actually be a saint. So I’m just sort of miserable all the time.”[55]

“Yeah, I suppose I’m a Christian, it’s just not like I’m constantly writing about it and thinking about it”[56]

“Although my Christianity is somewhat more explicit in this book, Christianity fuels everything I write. … I was raised Christian, but I’ve become more Christian in the past five or ten years, and one most transforming effect in my own life is that I’m constantly at peace.”[57]

“I’m a Christian and everything comes from being a Christian … I do think Christianity fuels all of my books because you are called upon to behave in a certain way as a Christian and that is to fight lies, injustice, cruelty, hypocrisy, that fuels everything.” [58]

“Although my Christianity is somewhat more explicit in this book, Christianity fuels everything I write.”[59]

“I love America, God, and truth, and I hate liars.”[60]

“I’m a Christian first and a mean-spirited, bigoted conservative second, and don’t you ever forget it.”[61]

“If God himself came down from heaven and told me these cops intentionally murdered Amadou Diallo knowing he was unarmed, I would not believe it.”[62]

“… being nice to people is an incidental tenet of Christianity.”[63]

“I used to love [John McCain], then I liked him, now I despise him.”[64]

“They forgive [John McCain], I don’t. … I’m reconsidering ‘the love your enemies’ part [of Christianity].”[65]

“Now I can officially hate [Todd Akin]. … Now I officially hate him.”[66]

“I hate the feminists. The real reason I loathe and detest feminists …[they] are also marauding, bloodthirsty vipers.”[67]

“If you don’t hate Clinton and the people who labored to keep him in office, you don’t love your country.”[68]

“I for one bolted past indifference straight into loathing long ago.”[69]

“I hate white liberals.”[70]

“The riot in Ferguson reminds me, I hate criminals, but I hate liberals more.”[71]

“I’ve never said anything so outrageous that I regret it. Though I’ve regretted things that were too tame.”[72]

“You can see I haven’t been transformed.”[73]

[51]     Ann Coulter, Reclaiming America for Christ Conference, Ft. Lauderdale, FL, 3/3/07. Coulter said something similar at a Values Voter Summit in Washington, D.C.: “For two decades after Roe, no abortion clinic doctors were killed. But immediately after Planned Parenthood v. Casey, after working within the system did not work, produced no results…for the first time an abortion doctor was killed. A few more abortion clinic workers were killed in the next few years. I’m not justifying it, but I understand when you take democracy away from people, some of them will react violently. The total number of deaths attributable to Roe were seven abortion clinic workers and 40 million unborn babies.” (See http://www.publiceye.org/christian_right/values-voters/Values%20Voters-09-04.html#TopOfPage.)
