Top 10 shocking things in Ann Coulter’s book ‘Demonic’ that will drive liberals crazy

3.) Coulter stands up for the killings at Kent State

“On May 4, National Guard officers were trying to disperse thousands of violent protesters in the middle of the campus. According to the recent reporting of James Rosen, the guardsman were fired upon first, leading twenty-nine guardsman to shoot back at the protesters, killing four students in thirteen seconds,” Coulter writes.

“If Louis XVI had been that decisive, 600,000 Frenchmen might not have had to die. As his grandfather, Louis XIV, had said: When war is necessary, it is a ‘grave error to think that one can reach the same aims by weaker means.’ Though decried throughout the land – and in a Neil Young song! – the shooting at Kent State soon put an end to the student riots.”

This fits nicely with a major theme of Coulter’s book, which is encapsulated in its very last words.

“This nation’s heroes knew what Louis XVI did not: A mob cannot be calmly reasoned with: it can only be smashed,” Coulter writes. “When faced with a mob, civilized society’s motto should be: Overreact!”

2.) Coulter takes on the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr.

“Martin Luther King Jr. was the heir to Rousseau. He used images in order to win publicity and goodwill for his cause, deploying children in the streets for a pointless, violent confrontation with a lame-duck lunatic: Theophilus Eugene ‘Bull’ Connor,” she writes.

In attacking King’s legacy, Coulter uses the words of liberal icon Thurgood Marshall, who became the first black justice of the Supreme Court, to aid her in tarnishing King’s reputation. “Thurgood Marshall had always disdained King’s methods, calling him an ‘opportunist’ and ‘first rate rabble-rouser,’” Coulter writes. “Indeed, when asked about King’s suggestion that street protests could help advance desegregation, Marshall replied that school desegregation was men’s work and should not be entrusted to children. King, he said, was ‘a boy on a man’s errand.’”

Coulter concludes, “The civil rights movement had made mobs respectable, to the great misfortune of the nation. In no time, liberals began engaging in what I believe Gandhi called ‘active resistance’ every time they didn’t get their way through legitimate legal processes.”

In a later chapter, she says, “If Nixon had been elected in 1960, instead of Kennedy, we could have skipped the bloodshed of the civil rights marches and today we’d be celebrating Thurgood Marshall Day, rather than Martin Luther King Day.”

1.) Expressing understanding of anti-abortion violence

“But more important, abortion clinic violence should not be filed under ‘Political Violence’ at all. It should be filed under ‘Things Liberals Won’t Let Americans Vote On.’…When there is no legal process for pro-lifers to pursue to outlaw abortion – unlike every policy liberals violently protest – some pro-lifers will inevitably respond to lawlessness with lawlessness,” Coulter writes. “In the first few years after [Planned Parenthood v. Casey], about six more people were killed in attacks on abortion clinics. Most of the abortionists were shot or, depending upon your point of view, had a procedure performed on them with a rifle.”

“There were no more constitutional options left to fight judicial tyranny on the little matter of mass murder,” she concludes.  “Thus, abortion clinic violence is more akin to the Tiananmen Square protests in Communist China than any liberal riot in America. Want to stop violence at abortion clinics? Repeal Roe and let Americans vote.”

    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.
