Ann Coulter’s books are never tame.

Her latest book, “Demonic: How the Liberal Mob is Endangering America,” will start enraging liberals with its very title – which is par for the course for the author of such liberal-bashing classics as “Godless” and “Treason.”

The Daily Caller has put together the top 10 quotes and arguments from her latest tome that are most likely to make Chris Matthews’s head explode – and possibly even disturb some on the right.

10.) Democrats are anti-science

Reversing the Democratic mantra that Republicans are “anti-science,” Coulter says it is really the Democratic mob that abhors science and technological innovation.

“The Left’s abject terror of technological development is yet another mob attribute,” she writes.

Quoting Gustave Le Bon, whose theory on mobs is the main intellectual foundation of her book, Coulter writes, “Thus, according to Le Bon, if ‘democracies possessed the power they wield today at the time of the invention of mechanical looms or of the introduction of steam-power and of railways, the realization of these inventions would have been impossible.”

But, Coulter argues, “Our liberals are even worse than Le Bon imagined. Democrats don’t merely want to block scientific progress, they want to stop scientific progress, they want to roll it back.”

She then cites, as examples, Al Gore’s call in his “global warming fantasy book Earth in the Balance” for the elimination of the internal combustion engine within 25 years, the Democrat’s 2007 bill to eliminate the incandescent light bulb by 2014, Obamacare, which she says will hamper medical innovation, and the Democrats’ incessant hectoring of the oil and pharmaceutical industries – industries, Coulter writes, that “are two of the most innovative.”

She goes on: “Indeed, the only way to get liberals interested in novel scientific research is to propose going after human embryos,” citing liberals love of embryonic stem cell research over adult stem cell research when the science on the latter is more promising according to her.

9.) Liberals are not a part of the American tradition

“The men behind the American Revolution – the militias, the Minutemen, and the signers of the Declaration of Independence, as well as the framers of the Constitution – were the very opposite of the mob. Today we would call them ‘Republicans,’” she writes at one point in the book

“Liberals’ history is not this country’s history – theirs is the history of the mob,” she writes in another.

8.) Liberal social consciousness manifests itself in the killing of American soldiers

Though a joke, this one will still enrage:

“If the Weatherman had succeeded in transporting their bombs to the Fort Dix dance, instead of blowing themselves up, they would have murdered lots of U.S. serviceman and their dates. For liberals, that’s social consciousness,” she writes.

7.) Republican “Southern Strategy” was not racist

“The entire basis of the liberals’ ‘Southern Strategy’ myth is the sophisticated belief that anyone who votes Republican must be a racist,” Coulter writes.

“If Nixon had planned to appeal to white racists, speeding up desegregation was not an effective strategy. But he turned around and won an even bigger landslide in 1972, running against George McGovern and the party of acid, abortion, and amnesty,” she argues.

    I could make a very easy living at this, converting cash into bile.
    Try, by changing just six words/expressions:

    “But more important, ISLAMIST violence should not be filed under ‘Political Violence’ at all. It should be filed under ‘Things AMERICANS Won’t Let ARABS Vote On.’…When there is no legal process for ARABS to pursue to outlaw INVADING THEIR COUNTRIES – unlike every policy liberals violently protest – some ARABS will inevitably respond to lawlessness with lawlessness.”

    In a crowd of smug right wing ignoramuses, your post stands out as an extreme of utterly irrational, paranoid, simple minded theotard rubbish.

    1.) Expressing understanding of anti-abortion violence
    Since it is political violence that Ann sympathizes with, that is why she is whitewashing it.

    2.) Coulter takes on the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr.
    I thought MLK was every cons’ favorite dead black guy?

    3.) Coulter stands up for the killings at Kent State
    A total hateful pig making excuses again

    4.) The GOP has always been the party supporting civil rights, not the Democratic Party
    That was in the past. Not now. As far as the Klan goes, it was the GOP in Mississippi who recently wanted to honor it’s founder, General NB Forrest/

    5.) Democrats’ schemes are similar to the schemes of history’s worst regimes
    More hysterical hyperbolic rubbish: Obamacare = Stalin Collectivizing Agriculture, right

    6.) The left (and crazy people) are responsible for all political violence in the United States
    John Wilkes Booth and the Southerners were not leftists, sorry, After all, almost all our founding fathers, you know the ones who God was guiding when they wrote the Bill of Rights, owned slaves.

    7.) Republican “Southern Strategy” was not racist
    But it sure brought all the racist into that party.

    8.) Liberal social consciousness manifests itself in the killing of American soldiers
    Though a joke, this one will still enrage:
    How would it enrage a reasonable person if it is a joke? Easy, Coulter’s fans are hysterical know nothings who live to be enraged.

    9.) Liberals are not a part of the American tradition
    The original revolutionaries certainly weren’t conservative or right wing. As well as liberalism usually means anti-tradition. Another epic fail

    10.) Democrats are anti-science
    Utter rubbish coming from person who doesn’t even have a junior high student’s grasp of Science. After all, she denies Evolution & Global warming.

    But if I was a barely literate talk radio brainwashed know nothing lining up to get my book signed at a Palin rally, I might mistake her motormouth hype and lies for wisdom too.

    Ann Coulter talks way above the heads of liberals. That’s why they just don’t get it.

    • Morrisminor

      I guess if I was a barely literate goon raised on talk radio I would agree with you and her too.
