Media Advisory: New book released – #NeverTrump: Coulter’s Alt-Right Utopia

#NeverTrump: Coulter’s Alt-Right Utopia explains what Donald Trump’s “New American Revolution” portends and why we should oppose it.

nevertrump

The Alt-Right is a central feature of the Trump movement. The Alt-Right worldview permeates every aspect of the Trump phenomenon, its self-identity, its view of America and the world, and its view of individuals and liberty itself.

Ann Coulter is the high priestess of the Alt-Right and Trump’s consigliere, propagandist, muse, and wannabee consort. (Coulter offers herself up as the model, the quintessential American.)

The Alt-Right has transformed patriotism into an isolationistic nationalism which eschews both foreigners (outside) and immigrants (inside) alike. It redefines the very terms “American” and “citizenship.”

The Alt-Right is the mirror image of leftist social justice warriors.

The New Trump Party also borrows much from the antebellum Know-Nothing Party: anti-immigrant, anti-Catholic, anti-Semitic, nativist, and isolationist.

Ann Coulter = David Duke — In Denial

In an Esquire profile, David Duke, notorious former Klansman and white supremacist, claimed a strong affinity with Ann Coulter, high priestess of the Alt-Right.

David Duke said, “Ann Coulter is so savaged by the media, I guess she’s gotta feel like, ‘Well, at least I’m not David Duke!’ But if you really look at what she says, if you read her books, it’s very close to what I’ve been saying.”

Why did Duke call out Coulter? He responded to Coulter’s claim on Real Time (1014/16): “I don’t even think David Duke exists. He appears every four years so that you can use him as a boogeyman.”

Coulter also facetiously claimed, “For all we know, Duke died 20 years ago and the media are using a body double.”

On the very day Duke expressed being ideologically simpatico with Coulter, she again denied Duke’s very existence, writing, “No one even knows if Duke actually exists or is just a phantom produced by the media every four years to smear Republicans.”

There are actually two David Dukes. One was a former Grand Wizard and the other dresses in a miniskirt as she ministers to the Alt-Right.

Coulter’s Colors of the Rainbow

In a fascinating interview with Scottie Nell Hughes, Coulter revealed her racial confusion and racist inclinations. She said, “No normal person thinks of themself as Hispanic. They think of themselves as ‘I’m Mexican,’ ‘I’m Cuban,’ ‘I’m Ecuadorian.’ [Hispanic] is an invention of the political parties.”

coulters-colors-of-the-rainbow

Really? Coulter continued:

“Trump transcended this. He’s appealing to ‘Hispanics’ [Coulter placed air quotes around Hispanics], blacks, Asians, Americans, white Americans.”

If Hispanics don’t think of themselves as Hispanic but of various nationalities, then why is that not true of blacks? Aren’t they Kenyan, or Jamaican, or Haitian, or Nigerian, or …. [fill in the blank]? Yet, Coulter doesn’t deny that they are black. (In fact, she also claims that America still owes blacks for slavery, even those who emigrated after emancipation.) So, why deny that Hispanics are “Hispanic?”

What about whites? Are whites, as Coulter implies, homogenous? Are there no cultural and linguistic differences between Swedes, Polacks, Britons, French, and Italians? Yet, when it suits her, Coulter emphasizes those differences, always in favor of English WASP culture. Moreover, Coulter actively courts “white” votes to the exclusion of non-white ones.

Does anyone say “I’m Asian?” No. They refer to their national origins, whether China, Korea, Japan, Nepal, or elsewhere. Would Coulter suggest “Asia” “is an invention of the political parties?” Hardly.

It’s funny. When Coulter listed peoples to whom Trump appeals, she said: “Hispanics, blacks, Asians, Americans, white Americans.” When she said “Americans,” she quickly corrected herself and qualified it as “white Americans,” almost as if she doesn’t regard non-whites as Americans, or, perhaps more accurately, to emphasize the group of Americans she values most: whites.

Whites are crucial for Coulter’s restoration of a WASP (i.e., white) America.

Apparently, “Hispanics” (don’t forget those air quotes), blacks, Asians and other non-whites aren’t real Americans to Coulter.

Trump, Coulter, and the KKK

Ann Coulter defended “conservative” racism in her column yesterday. Her main argument seems to be that the Left does it too, and, besides, theirs is worse!

Trump Coulter KKK

Should Donald Trump denounce David Duke, the KKK, and white supremacists? Of course! But not in Ann’s world. Coulter just dismisses them as irrelevant in the 21st century.

Since Trump entered this presidential race, white supremacists have come out of the woodwork to support him and praise his message. They agree with the racial aspects of his platform. And this isn’t news? (Even Louis Farrakhan praises Trump!)

The very same thing happened when Coulter published her latest book, Adios, America! During her book tour, Coulter championed an identity politics given the David Duke seal of approval.[1]

Why do white supremacists praise both Trump and Coulter? Because these white supremacists agree with their racial politics and agenda!

Why do white supremacists agree with Ann Coulter’s book? Because a white supremacist wrote it!

Coulter wants protection against charges of racism by decrying those charges[2] even as she pursues a racist agenda[3] built on a racist paradigm.[4] Let’s not forget about the anti-Semitic component[5] of Coulter’s WASP worldview.

Yes! Every conservative and every Christian should denounce David Duke, the KKK, and white supremacists!

Why won’t Coulter?

Ann Coulter’s “Racism Credit”

Environmentalists have adopted a “carbon credit” to justify those who are creating a larger carbon footprint. So, too, Coulter employs a “racism credit” to inoculate herself and her colleagues against charges of racism.

We see this so clearly in her defense of Donald Trump’s disparaging words against Mexicans, words which Coulter herself agreed with and found pleasurable to hear.[1]

RacismCredit

Before getting into the crux of my critique, let me reiterate my praise for an earlier book by Coulter[2]Mugged. It was exemplary, with a few exceptions, most notably her contention then (as it is now) that civil rights are only for blacks and not for all citizens. (The Bill of Rights contains civil rights for all citizens.)

Moreover, I have praised Coulter for her opposition to the racial grievance industry.[3] If only there was more consistency in her views and her expression of them.

Racism Credit for Trump

In his presidential announcement speech, Donald Trump disparaged virtually all Mexicans. (Coulter has done the same, vilifying Mexico’s “primitive rape culture.”)[4] But Coulter commended Trump and suggested (emphasis added),

“I think his next move should be that he should point out that he’s the only one who cares about black jobs. I mean have you seen the black unemployment rate? How dare liberals accuse him of racism? They don’t even have an argument. He’s the one trying to defend American jobs and particularly with the black youth unemployment rate. How about letting Americans take those jobs instead of the foreign born poor?”[5]

Yes, Coulter’s argument is that because Trump helps blacks, he cannot be a racist against browns.[6]

On Hannity, Coulter again attacked Trump’s critics, using the very same argument (emphasis added):

I’m so sick of this nonsense about Donald Trump being the racist here. He’s the one speaking for working-class Americans, for African-Americans. Have you seen the teenage black unemployment rate? Why shouldn’t they be getting those jobs? It’s Donald Trump that’s speaking up for them!”[7]

Yes, Coulter’s argument really is that because Trump helps blacks, he cannot be a racist against browns.

Blinded to Color-Obsession

Instead of being racially colorblind (as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. envisioned),[8] Coulter is blind to her own color-obsession. In a soliloquy on the Joyce Kaufman Show, Coulter spoke of the many colors of the rainbow:

“The idea of some Hispanic unity, to say nothing of Black Hispanic unity, is a fantasy believed by white liberals and stupid Republicans. As I say in my book, anyone who knows any of the people they’re talking about – other than Lupe the maid – Dominicans and Puerto Ricans hate one another; Mexicans and blacks hate one another; everybody hates the Cubans. And all these Republicans think, ‘Oh, if we run Cuban Marco Rubio, it’ll be catnip for all the little brown brothers. No! You don’t know what you’re talking about![9]

About those brown brothers, Coulter contends there is no such thing as racism against them. She has defended both Trump and herself of charges of racism against Hispanics because Hispanics are not black. Such scintillating logic!

To one questioner, Coulter replied: “The answer is: you’re not black, so drop the racism crap.”[10]

No One Has Called Coulter a Racist

Coulter recently made an utterly ludicrous claim: “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.”[11]

Ann knows better than that!

As she did with Trump, Coulter invokes previous work on behalf of blacks to insulate herself from charges of racism, this time against browns. (Defending herself, Coulter cites Mugged and, astonishingly, Adios, America!)

As for the accusations themselves …

In 2001, Coulter spoke at her alma mater, Cornell University, and was confronted with those very same accusations. According to David Horowitz, “Even before her arrival, campus Democrats had already sent out a flyer calling on students to protest Coulter’s talk, while another flyer from the more ardent left aggressively linked her with Adolf Hitler and David Duke.” Those accusations of racism were neither the first nor the last levied against Coulter.

A 2002 article, “The Racist Rhetoric of Ann Coulter,” pretty much spelled out the case against Coulter. It correctly reported that Coulter spoke disparagingly of Indians as “savages,” suggested juvenile delinquents in the hood should be flogged, and promoted the superiority of the white man.

Coulter also contended that Halle Berry won her Oscar by being white enough, writing: “Large-breasted, slightly cocoa women with idealized Caucasian features finally have a chance in Hollywood.”[12]

Chapters in two 2012 books also highlighted Coulter’s racist tendencies: The Gospel According to Ann Coulter[13] and Vanity: Ann Coulter’s Quest for Glory.[14]

Last year, Coulter was embroiled in numerous controversies of her own making. One revolved around her nativist denunciation of foreigners vis-à-vis soccer.[15] Another centered on her defamation of Christian missionaries.[16] Both incorporated racist views which Coulter again reaffirmed just this year.

Since Adios, America! was released, several relevant columns have been published in opposition to the overt and foundational racism contained in her work and expressed throughout her book tour: 1) “Adios, Ann: Coulter’s Blood Politics,” 2) “Adios, Ann: Coulter’s Racial Confusion,” and 3) “Adios, Ann: Diversity = White.”

If calling Coulter a racist is “a very difficult case to make,” perhaps we should attempt something a little easier, like proving Coulter is a person of integrity and veracity. Any takers?

Adios, Ann: Coulter’s WASP Fantasy

Ann Coulter’s historical revisionism now extends to redefining what it means to be an American. Using a barrage of statistics (some real, some fabricated),[1] coupled with heart-wrenching anecdotal evidence, fanciful narrative, and a passionate zeal for her nativist perspective, Coulter is rewriting our past with an intent to change our future.

(Remember Coulter’s own fraudulent biographical information[2] and her chameleon-like self-identity[3]?)

Adios8

Not Really Americans

Recently, Coulter has defamed whole groups of people, calling them “phony” – from the Tea Party[4] to Christian missionaries.[5] She has a long history of making such false accusations. Now, Coulter is targeting yet another group – immigrants – and doing so with a redefinition of (and conflation of) terms, all to advance her own agenda.

Coulter’s jaundiced view of American citizenship was on full display in her column,[6] posted yesterday, in which she again dismisses the terrorist threat in America[7] and confuses the immigration issue by conflating various groups as if they were identical.

Coulter wrote (emphasis added): “And, once again, the weekend came and went without anyone in America being killed by ISIS, but a lot of people being killed by immigrants – legal, illegal, second generation and anchor babies.”

Further on, Coulter added, “Some of these crimes were committed by legal residents – even ‘citizens.’”

In addressing crime by immigrants, Coulter lumps everyone in together: immigrants (illegal, legal, second generation, anchor babies) and “citizens” (in air quotes, so that we might know she regards them as not really citizens).

Does Coulter regard the current governor of South Carolina as an air-quote citizen? Seemingly. Coulter actually called the native-born governor an ignorant immigrant.

Coulter smeared[8] Gov. Nikki Haley (R-SC) – an American citizen – for having immigrant parents, suggesting she was somehow less than a real American. Why? Because this successful governor – who is a native South Carolinian to boot – was from the wrong race! Haley’s family hails from India, not England.

Remember, Coulter calls many native-born Americans “immigrants,” not citizens.

The very nature of citizenship eludes many liberals and some conservatives, particularly Coulter. As noted by the Ashbrook Center (emphasis added):

“But in fact, of course, only Americans are American citizens. Our revolution began with a universal claim about human equality, but it culminated necessarily in the establishment of a particular nation. ‘We the People of the United States’ are distinct from the other peoples of the world not by birth, race, or religion, but by the deliberate act of establishing ourselves as a different people. By the act of consent, the people of the United States committed themselves to each other, as distinct from all the others who live outside the bond if citizenship.”[9]

An idea – liberty and equality – gave birth to America.

America – An Idea or a Race?

In her book and on her tour, Coulter dismisses the notion that America is an “idea” and claims it is the creation and culmination of an Anglicized white race. She wrote: “America is not a ‘nation of immigrants,’ it is not an ‘idea,’ it was never ‘diverse,’ and ‘diversity’ is a catastrophe.”

Further, “Without the white settlers, what is known as ‘America’ would still be an unnamed continent full of migratory tribes chasing the rear end of a buffalo every time their stomachs growled.”[10]

(What? No one but white settlers were capable of settling America?)

As Coulter put it, “The first people here, back in the 1600s, were not immigrants. They were settlers. They came to a continent that had no country. They created this country. The Dutch – mostly the British – created America.”[11]

Yes, Coulter contends that America’s greatness stems from having the correct racial composition (i.e., white, specifically British) and that her decline is a result of the wrong racial composition (i.e., non-white, non-European). If that were really true, Britannia would still rule the waves.

Coulter asserts (emphasis added): “Only white Anglo-Saxons always seem to be in the position for apologizing for being white Anglo-Saxons. Well, no: You can come in and you can be part of what is a white Anglo-Saxon-American culture, which is better than the culture that it was created from.”[12]

Coulter insists, “American culture is WASP culture.” But for Coulter, the most important component of that acronym is the beginning: White. Coulter’s almost inalterable emphasis is on race.

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.”

White western Europeans.

Yes, white western Europeans created America – an America based on an idea, premised on a proposition, with the purpose of being a shining city on a hill and the last, best hope of mankind.

As Kevin D. Williamson put it, “Ultimately, we Americans are not a blood; we are a creed.”

But for Coulter, American culture remains white culture.

The Idea of America

Coulter dismisses the notion that America is an idea when, in fact, America was birthed by an idea enshrined in the Declaration of Independence. As Dana Perino recently put it, “We have our core identity and that is our independence.”[13]

The idea – freedom – is at the heart of the American Dream. That idea encompasses the biblical understanding that “all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights.”

Our forefathers – whether genetically or ideologically – took a virgin continent to create a New World. Not like Hitler’s Fatherland or Stalin’s Mother Russia. Theirs was not a blood and soil philosophy, but one which built upon the collected wisdom of Western Civilization, the principles and precepts of the Bible, and the surety of God’s Providence.

The Framers of our Constitution and Founders of our Republic created a nation and a government which maximized political, economic, and religious liberty to an extent never before seen.

America’s Founders believed in the idea of liberty and equality – not race! Abraham Lincoln eloquently spoke of the “proposition that all men are created equal.” A proposition is an  idea or an ideal, not a race!

Michael Gerson notes, “Lincoln not only rejected slavery, he rejected relativism – the belief that moral standards change from culture to culture, or shift with public opinion. And he rooted his moral beliefs in two great traditions: the Enlightenment views of the Founders, and the teachings of religion.”[14]

WASP = White Anglo-Saxon Protestant

Coulter speaks of WASP culture in almost exclusively racial terms, emphasizing the first word and giving lip service to the last.

Myron Magnet notes “The Plymouth Pilgrims were only the first of many who came to the New World to escape religious persecution. … because they were accustomed to reading the Bible and feeling free to judge its meaning for themselves – to believing, that is, that they had a direct relation to God and his word independent of any worldly institution or authority – they also brought a deeply rooted culture of individualism and personal responsibility. For them, the individual and his conscience were of preeminent importance.”

Moreover, religious revivals (called “Great Awakenings”) animated the public square and reconstituted America. Kevin D. Williamson observed, “The American proposition is a theological proposition: ‘that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights.’”

But Coulter gives short shrift to the spiritual (Christian) origins of America.[15]

Gerson emphasizes the importance Christianity had in America’s founding and maturation. Gerson explains, “The First Great Awakening, led by George Whitfield in the 1730s, promoted the doctrines of individual conscience and liberty that added momentum to the American Revolution, sending many traditional conservatives fleeing for Canada.”[16]

Gerson adds, “The Second Great Awakening, which flamed a century later, created the moral constituency for abolition, and the political constituency for Lincoln’s election.”[17]

Gerson continues, “The Third Great Awakening, at the end of the nineteenth century and the beginning of the twentieth, led to a Social Gospel that confronted the excesses of the industrial revolution with soup kitchens, homes for unwed mothers, and progressive laws.”[18]

Coulter’s Immigration Plan is Race-Based

As with everything she cares about, Coulter wants to be in charge. She foisted Romney on the nation in 2012 and wants to do so again.[19] She insists that only governors or senators should be nominated.[20] She wants to decide everything. So, too, with immigration.

Coulter has a very narrow, unidimensional perspective, shallow and superficial – literally skin deep. Don’t take my word for it. Consider Coulter’s very own criteria for determining whom to let into America.

Coulter’s plan is distinctly racial: “I want to be 100% in charge of all of our immigration. I can decide before breakfast every morning. I just need a picture, age, country of origin – that’s about it.”[21]

Coulter adds, “I’m a looksist and I like ‘em tall. Those are the two primary factors. And, obviously, English-speaking.” Moreover, her diversity would extend to, well, “I want more British and Dutch, but I would say a lot more British and less Dutch.”

And, if you don’t think race is Coulter’s primary criterion,[22] consider these words: “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.”[23]

Dennis Prager offered insight into Ronald Reagan’s vision of America – a vision diametrically opposed to that of Ann Coulter. Prager wrote:

“Matthew’s Gospel speaks of a city on a hill, an image that captured the imagination of Ronald Reagan: ‘I’ve spoken of the shining city all my political life, but I don’t know if I ever quite communicated what I saw when I said it. But in my mind it was a tall proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, wind-swept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace, a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here.’”

Quite a different outlook from that of Coulter.

Coulter Declares Herself Self-Evidently Not a Racist

A befuddled Ann Coulter recently defended herself with a laughable claim:

“Just out of historical accuracy, of the many, many, many hate campaigns waged against me – ah, accusing me, you know, of being anti-woman, anti-widow, anti-Muslim, anti-Semitic, anti-gay – 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.”[24]

Huh? Coulter’s entire immigration agenda is race-based[25] – and people are calling her on it. On the one hand, she decries, “Identity politics isn’t our game. It never works. … knock off the identity politics.”[26] But then, in the same breath, she asserts, “Your base is white people, Republicans!”[27]

What is Coulter’s agenda? In her words, “The Ann Coulter Plan: The way to win is to drive up the white vote.”[28] Asked why candidates are not advocating the Ann Coulter Plan: “A combination of stupidity and cowardice.”

Coulter has never before been called a racist?

In 2001, Coulter spoke at her alma mater, Cornell University, and was confronted with those very accusations. According to David Horowitz, “Even before her arrival, campus Democrats had already sent out a flyer calling on students to protest Coulter’s talk, while another flyer from the more ardent left aggressively linked her with Adolf Hitler and David Duke.” Those accusations of racism were neither the first nor the last levied against Coulter.

Last year, Coulter was embroiled in numerous controversies of her own making. One revolved around her nativist denunciation of foreigners vis-à-vis soccer.[29] Another centered on her defamation of Christian missionaries.[30] Both incorporated racist views which Coulter again reaffirmed just this year.

The Way of the WASP

Coulter offers Americans a bait-and-switch in which she champions an idyllic WASP culture which must be restored for America to once again flourish but offers instead a white supremacist paradigm[31] which is antithetical to the very culture she champions.

America’s settlers and Founding Fathers created a new American culture distinct from, though similar to, Anglo-Saxon culture. People of all races and cultures have assimilated to – and enhanced – that foundational culture.

Richard Brookhiser, author of The Way of the WASP (1990), has written extensively about WASP culture, making many salient points which Coulter’s antics only serve to obscure. Brookhiser said,

“I think WASP values can go in a number of different political directions. Over time, there have been WASPs who were isolationists and WASPs who were imperialists. There have been WASPs who were social Darwinists, free marketeers of the most rigorous sort, and there were WASPs who were prairie socialists. WASP ideals can form different varieties of society. However, they’re all within certain limits. There are certain types of society you’re not going to get in a WASP country.”

That variety is anathema to Coulter, whose monochromatic outlook corresponds with her, in Michael Isikoff’s words, “starkly one-dimensional worldview.”

Reviewing Brookhiser’s book, Michael Novak commented on WASP characteristics totally neglected by Coulter. He writes:

“In the most interesting chapter of his book, Brookhiser lists six ‘traits’ that define the essential WASP character: conscience, industry, success, civic-mindedness, use [practicality], anti-sensuality. … More than many other cultures, WASP culture insists on a certain inner self-government; it construes freedom to mean doing not what one wishes but what one ought; it insists upon unbroken attention to the bite of guilt.”

None of these traits are racial. None of these characteristics are inherited. America’s Founding Fathers understood this. They understood that liberty, morality, virtue, godliness and the like all transcend race and ethnicity. Similarly, they grasped that the gospel – which imbued the life of colonial and early America – transcends all cultures and can impact the life of any person anywhere. They understood these things to the marrow of their bones.

Why doesn’t Coulter? (The answer may surprise you!)

(Why would Coulter lie about such basic historical facts, distort the nature of the American identity, and promote such a racialist perspective and agenda – all the while believing herself to be the opposite of a racist? You will find the truth to be absolutely astonishing! Stay tuned!)

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.

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!
