@AnnCoulter Ends 2019 with Putrid Polemic

Although Ann Coulter wrote some powerful and praiseworthy columns in 2019, she ended the year publishing a putrid polemic, thus exposing her dark heart.

It was ugly!

While denouncing the evils of Hollywood’s portrayal of America, Coulter’s column was, in large measure – evil.

Much of what Coulter wrote about Hollywood scripts was accurate, but, she went out of her way to lambaste a particular person – Celine Robinson – vilifying both her ideology and her looks, and treating her as representative of all lesbians, Jews, and feminists.

What prompted this column by Coulter? Robinson had enraged Coulter with this tweet:

Coulter, creatively, in paragraph after paragraph, made it clear that in her eyes, this “half French, queer, Jewish feminist” is ugly and the antithesis of the “hot actors and actresses” who play the characters in her scripts. (Coulter was uncharitable, to say the least!)

Indeed, these hot actresses are “the molecular opposite of” Robinson and Robinson’s photo alone is proof that it is “Opposites Day” every day in Hollywood. (Coulter adroitly included a link to a tweet from 2016 which contained a photo of her nemesis and victim.)

Coulter used the phrase “queer, Jewish feminist” five times, notably dismissing as inconsequential the “half French” portion of Robinson’s personal self-identity. (I gather that Freedom Fries have long passed their expiration date.)

The bulk of the remainder of Coulter’s column was devoted to Third World sodomy and pedophilia, in graphic terms. She seemed to delight in being outrageous.

(Coulter is known for being somewhat tardy at speaking engagements and in posting her columns. On this occasion, she posted this column one day early, as if she couldn’t wait for others to see it.)

In the early weeks of 2020, Coulter continued with her attacks on the looks of those with whom she disagrees. Looksism is extremely important to her: She wants to be perceived as beautiful and hot while denigrating her foes as being not.

Here’s one example:

Here are a few responses:

Joker: Ann Coulter Unplugged provides an in-depth, detailed analysis of Coulter’s worldview and character flaws which have led her to be so wrong in so many areas in which she regards herself as an expert.

Happy Thanksgiving! I’m a Settler!

While the Left embraces illegals and foreigners as “Americans,” Ann Coulter and the Alt-Right contend that only WASPs descended from colonists are “true” Americans.

im-a-settler

(Remember, Coulter boasts, “I’m a settler” and a “Native American.” Coulter cherishes her Pilgrim roots, making her a self-identified authority on all things American as well as moral, culturally, and genetically superior to the rest of us mere mortals.)

However, to all those of you who cherish America and are grateful for God’s Providence in our lives and the formation of this great nation, let me wish you a Happy Thanksgiving!

Normal People

Ann Coulter’s definition of “normal” is someone just like her.

normal-people

In her latest column (11/16/16), Coulter argued that “the consequence of the Democratic Party’s decision in the 1970s [was] to get rid of all the normal people.”

Hearing Coulter – lover of words like “retarded” and defender of going “full-on spastic retard” – (for the sheer joy of being offensive) – use the word “normal” with regard to people almost be deemed Hitlerian.

Taken in the context of the Alt-Right’s rise to power this election cycle – an Alt-Right which would relish jettisoning the majority of mankind into the dustbin of history – Coulter speaking of “normal people” takes on far greater significance.

Remember, Coulter truly hates soccer – because it is “foreign” – and hates all foreigners and immigrants. especially Mexicans. Coulter even hates Christian missionaries for going to foreign countries.

She hates Gov. Nikki Haley for being an ignorant second-generation immigrant (meaning, she is a native-born American with foreign parents).

Coulter’s views can arguably be called anti-Semitic and anti-Catholic. She even attacks war heroes and Gold Star families.

Coulter’s hatred also extends to other Americans. She loves to call Democrats Nazis, crazy, and demonic.

Coulter hates Carly Fiorina and the GOP. Ben Carson does not fare well with Coulter. She has had a love-hate relationship with Ted Cruz. Once a Reagan-lover, Coulter now derides Reagan and his legacy.

For Coulter, “normal people” are just like her. But there aren’t too many of them because she is genetically superior to us.

The Alt-Right’s view of the world is distinctly nativist, racist, and supremacist. Ann Coulter is its high priestess and its muse.

Welcome to Ann Coulter’s world.

Warped Alt-Right Worldview

Alt-Right high priestess Ann Coulter has repeatedly called Gov. Nikki Haley an ignorant “second-generation immigrant.” Has she now extended that verdict to all non-WASPs?

warped-alt-right-worldview

In a recent tweet, Coulter confused a native-born South Carolinian of Indian Sikh ancestry with a Native American.

Apparently one “Indian” looks like another to her. Actually, for the Alt-Right, anyone who is not a WASP is an alien.

Coulter’s Genetic Superiority

Donald Trump’s ascendancy to the presidency gives legitimacy to – and greatly empowers – the Alt-Right.

its-in-the-genes

Ensconced in the White House, the nativist Alt-Right will seek to transform America into its own image.

In a stunning interview with Iain Dale of Britain’s LBC, Coulter claimed that “We’re a colony of yours.”

Coulter then asserted, “Most of us have a lot of British ancestry.” Coulter amplified what she regards as a “special relationship” with Britain that, “of course our two countries are very similar in culture, I mean, down to the genes.” (For years, Coulter has entertained the notion of WASP superiority – at a genetic level.)

It is not surprising that the high priestess of the Alt-Right lauds Trump’s decision to elevate Alt-Right guru Stephen Bannon as his chief strategist. Coulter told Howie Carr, “I think it’s quite brilliant.” She added, “I’m very impressed with Trump and this decision.”

Of course she is. In the end, Coulter and the Alt-Right seek to remake America into a white, WASP nation. Hence their obsession with race.

Coulter’s Nativism Glaringly Obvious

Nativist Ann Coulter is the high priestess of the Alt-Right and arguably Donald Trump’s most senior advisor.

coulters-nativism-glaringly-obvious

Coulter’s tweets, on the eve of the election, decisively demonstrate both her nativism and her lack of logic.

Ann Coulter (10:42 p.m.): If only people with at least 4 grandparents born in America were voting, Trump would win in a 50-state landslide.

Coulter’s argument is entirely race-based. She desires racial homogeneity. She has long sought to restore a (white) WASP America.

Erin McCormick (11:09 p.m.): “At LEAST four grandparents” it’s physically impossible to have more than four though?

Confronted with a linguistic error, Coulter proffered her own explanation of the meaning of “is.”

Ann Coulter (11:12 p.m.): There’s 8 great grandparents, 16 great-great grandparents, etc.

Yes, she explained what she meant of tweet. Her explanation further solidifies her intent toward racial (white) homogeneity.

witch docta (11:13 p.m.): Trump couldn’t even vote for himself because his mother was born in Scotland you past-ripe banana lookin bitch

Confronted with a quandary arising because Trump himself is a second-generation immigrant, Coulter claimed that fact to be irrelevant.

Ann Coulter (11:24 p.m.): So what? You are like “Politifact,” citing irrelevancies as if they detract from blinding truth of my statement.

What is the “blinding truth of” her original tweet? That real Americans – those who ancestors date back several generations as native-born Americans – would vote Trump, who “would win in a 50-state landslide.”

First, “real Americans” wouldn’t vote for Trump, a candidate who eschews the Constitution, the rule of law, Christianity, and American principles and ideals.

Second, Trump – and Trump alone – is the only “Republican” presidential candidate who could possibly lose to Hillary Clinton.

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.

Adios, Ann: Coulter Trashes Nikki Haley

In her zeal to combat America’s existential immigration crisis, Ann Coulter denounces all immigrants as culturally (and genetically[1]) inferior[2] to Americans.[3] Coulter’s views regarding Gov. Nikki Haley (R-SC) are emblematic of her worldview.

Adios7

When asked about the Confederate flag controversy, Coulter boasted, “Well, I’m a student of American history.”[4] She continued, “On the other hand, [Nikki Haley] is an immigrant and does not understand America’s history.”

Yes, Coulter called Nikki Haley an ignorant immigrant! In reality, Haley is a native South Carolinian well-versed in its history.

NikkiHaley

According to Coulter’s logic, Nikki Haley had to be ignorant because she was an immigrant and she had to be an immigrant because of her ethnicity.[5]

Coulter’s false claim perfectly fits into her dehumanizing, anti-immigrant narrative – all to sell a book and an agenda.[6] Coulter is captured by her own racial,[7] xenophobic[8] paradigm.

Coulter wields the word “immigrant” like an epithet.

Right Scoop is chagrined: “Thanks a lot, Ann Coulter, you’ve sunk to Joe Biden level stupidity.”

Coulter Denigrates Gov. Nikki Haley

In a recent tweet, Coulter compared Haley to terrorists!

CoulterOnHaley

In her tweet, Coulter claimed that Haley “constantly brags” about being a second-generation immigrant. (In other words, Haley’s bio says she’s a native South Carolinian with immigrant parents.) But then, Coulter compares Haley to jihadist Nidal Hasan (Ft. Hood massacre) and jihadist Anwar al-Awlaki (influential imam) as well as infamous tabloid queen Octomon, snidely noting, “we R getting the best ppl!”

Why does Coulter denigrate and despise Haley, who is a successful and popular governor of a major state? Is it because Haley is not of white Anglo-Saxon heritage? Is it because, in her eyes, Haley is a foreigner who somehow became a governor but Coulter couldn’t even find a party to support her run for Congress in Connecticut?

Why does Coulter attack Haley? Coulter calls first-generation Americans (citizens) second-generation immigrants to fudge her data, flesh out her case, and blur the concept of American-ness. Haley’s success contradicts Coulter’s stereotype of legal immigrants and threatens her agenda.

Coulter’s attacks upon Gov. Haley are not an aberration but, rather, manifestations of how Coulter thinks and feels – about herself and others. Coulter regards herself as extraordinary, as the measure – the gold standard – of patriotism,[9] of conservatism,[10] of Christianity.[11]

In her exasperation with Haley, we see the coalescence of elitism, classism, racism, nativism, and narcissism – all intertwined into the being we now know as Ann Coulter.

Coulter has developed an immeasurable sense of superiority toward others,[12] constantly contending that she knows best, and, as a consequence, condemns Christian missionaries as fake Christians,[13] was incensed at not being invited to speak at CPAC,[14] denies that ISIS is in America,[15] and insists Romney should be the 2016 GOP nominee.[16]

It wasn’t that long ago when Coulter compared Hillary Clinton to Josef Mengele![17] Coulter has also referred to Marco Rubio as “the Jack Kevorkian of the Republican Party.”[18]

Ace of Spades Speaks Out

Ace of Spades made some salient observations on these points. He wrote:

“But I would still have to reject the Essentialist nature of that argument – the implication that only ‘true Americans,’ born here, made of this blood and this soil, can understand America.”

“America is not chiefly about a place. Our physical location is happenstance. It is not about blood or soil. It is not about race. America is an idea – and ideal.”

[But Coulter makes it entirely about raceWhite Anglo-Saxon Protestants – with the emphasis on white.[19]

He continues:

“But if she’s now going down the road of asserting that an ‘immigrant’ (who is not an immigrant) really can’t understand America like the native-born can (even though many native-born Americans seem to want to kick American tradition to the cub and go full-on decadent European socialism), then I’ll have to conclude that she has become more than merely unfashionable, but instead simply … not worth reading.”

“That is off-base. That’s just Nativist and Essentialist – only the native-born are truly American; only those born with the essence of America in their blood can understand America.”

“And frankly, that sounds a lot like the Tribal Identity Politics that I don’t like in the newer classes of immigrants.”

Defending Coulter

Peter Brimelow penned a defense of Coulter, writing, “Ann Coulter misspoke trivially.” Coulter’s tweet regarding her words belies Brimelow’s defense. (Coulter does not misspeak. She says what she wants to say exactly the way she wants to say it.)

Far too many people try to justify Coulter’s misdeeds. Regarding Nikki Haley, Coulter’s words were extremely clear and unhesitatingly spoken.

In a Facebook dialogue, Coulter defenders came to her rescue. Here is an abbreviated version:

Steve Mason: I sure can see the connection between persecuting the Rebel flag and Third World, Turd World immigration. Are we Immigration Patriots the only ones?

John Rutowicz: Nimrata Nikki Randhawa Haley

Daniel Borchers: You can try to justify Coulter’s extremely clear and unhesitatingly spoken words, but Coulter’s false claim perfectly fits into her narrative of criticizing unworthy immigrants – all to sell a book and an agenda.

John Rutowicz: And you think this will make us dislike Ann Coulter?

Daniel Borchers: It’s not about like or dislike. It’s about truth and its opposite. Are you arguing that Coulter is right when she’s wrong? Haley is an American, born in America. Not an immigrant.

John Rutowicz: Americans are racially European, and religiously Christian.

Daniel Borchers: Where do blacks fit?

John Rutowicz: In Israel.

Thomas Meehan: I wouldn’t wish Israel on them. Sub Saharan Africa would be nice though.

[These people represent Coulter’s audience!]

Conservatives should have long ago abandoned Coulter as their spokesman. Coulter has proven herself to be, time and time again, a self-promoter interested in what is best for her [20] – not for conservatives and not for the country.

Update: Following the State of the Union address in 2016, Coulter tweeted that Trump should deport Nikki Haley!
