Ann Coulter has a new best seller. Agree or disagree with Ann, she is provacative. The following is from the linked article, it is part of the ABC news story and part of the first chapter of her new book.

Ann Coulter on the 'Liberal Mob' of the American Left

New York Times bestselling author and conservative political commentator Ann Coulter's new book, "Demonic: How the Liberal Mob is Endangering America", tackles politics once again, this time taking on the liberal left and what she describes as their "mob behavior."

In "Demonic," Coulter traces the words and movements of groups from the Ku Klux Klan and the SDS to anti-war protesters and Democrats today to argue her point that liberals have "consistently used mob tactics to implement their idea of the 'general will.'"

"Just as fire seeks oxygen, Democrats seek power, which is why they will always be found championing the mob whether the mob consists of Democrats lynching blacks or Democrats slandering the critics of Obama Care as racists," Coulter writes.

"Demonic" is the eighth book from Coulter, also a frequent television political commentator.

Read an excerpt from "Demonic" below, then check out some other books in the "GMA" library

Chapter 1

The Liberal Mob

2 When Jesus got out of the boat, a man with an impure spirit came from the tombs to meet him.


3 This man lived in the tombs, and no one could bind him anymore, not even with a chain.

4 For he had often been chained hand and foot, but he tore the chains apart and broke the irons on his feet. No one was strong enough to subdue him.

5 Night and day among the tombs and in the hills he would cry out and cut himself with stones.

6 When he saw Jesus from a distance, he ran and fell on his knees in front of him.

7 He shouted at the top of his voice, "What do you want with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? In God's name don't torture me!"

8 For Jesus had said to him, "Come out of this man, you impure spirit!"

9 Then Jesus asked him, "What is your name?" "My name is Legion," he replied, "for we are many."

-- Mark 5:2--9

The demon is a mob, and the mob is demonic. It is the nihilistic mob of the French Revolution; it is the revolutionaries who seized control of Russia at the beginning of the twentieth century; it is the Maoist gangs looting villages and impaling babies in China; it is the Ku Klux Klan terrorizing Republicans and blacks in the South; it is the 1992 Los Angeles riot that left fifty dead and did $1 billion of damage after the first Rodney King verdict; it is the bloody riots at the 1968 Democratic National Convention; it is the masked hoodlums smashing up Seattle when bankers came to town; it is the 500,000 illegal aliens marching under a foreign flag in Los Angeles; it is throngs of Islamic fanatics attending the Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini's funeral, tearing his body out of its coffin; it is left-wing protesters destroying property and attacking delegates at the 2004 and 2008 Republican National Conventions.

Everything else changes, but mobs are always the same. A mob is an irrational, childlike, often violent organism that derives its energy from the group. Intoxicated by messianic goals, the promise of instant gratification, and adrenaline-pumping exhortations, mobs create mayhem, chaos, and destruction, leaving a smoldering heap of wreckage for their leaders to climb to power.

The Democratic Party is the party of the mob, irrespective of what the mob represents. Democrats activate mobs, depend on mobs, coddle mobs, publicize and celebrate mobs -- they are the mob. Indeed, the very idea of a "community organizer" is to stir up a mob for some political purpose. "As so frequently happens when a crowd goes wild," historian Eric Durschmied says, "there is always one who shouts louder and thereby appoints himself as their leader."1 Those are the people we call "elected Democrats."

The Democrats' playbook doesn't involve heads on pikes -- as yet -- but uses a more insidious means to incite the mob. The twisting of truth, stirring of passions, demonizing of opponents, and relying on propagandistic images in lieu of ideas -- these are the earmarks of a mob leader. Over and over again, one finds the Democrats manipulating the mob to gain power. It is official Democratic policy to appeal to the least informed, most weak-minded and perpetually alarmed members of the public.


Their base consists of soccer moms, actresses, felons, MSNBC viewers (both of them), non-English speakers, welfare recipients, heads-up-their-butts billionaires, and government workers -- who can never be laid off. The entire party gave up on attracting the votes of white men decades ago. It's easier to round up votes by frightening women about "assault weapons" and promising excellent free health care to non-English speakers. Yes, a free health care system that is so superior that they exempt themselves and their friends from having to be in it. Liberals frighten people about their health care in order to stampede through ObamaCare. They claim the Earth is overheating in order to seize taxpayer money for solar panels and compact fluorescent lightbulbs.

They call out union thugs to force politicians to accede to insane benefits packages. They stage campaigns of calumny to get their way on gay marriage. Faddish ideas that would never have occurred to anyone fifty years ago -- or even twenty years ago -- are suddenly foisted on the rest of us by the liberal mobs.

Ed Schulz called Laura Ingraham a "right-wing slut." He offered a seemingly heartfelt apology to Ms Ingraham, which she accepted.

Has Ann Coulter apologized for her spew?

I tried to use each of the clickable links in your post. EVERY ONE resulted in "[page] not found". The one which supposedly covered Maddow's "lies" about MoveOn (a puzzler, that, since MoveOn is a liberal group and Maddow is supposedly a liberal commentator) isn't in a valid URL format.

Again, the person who makes the claim is the person responsible for providing proof.

((Has Ann Coulter apologized for her spew?))

Who, personally, has she called an inappropriate term? If she did call someone something inappropriate then she should apologize, but I have not heard of any person in particular.

Have you?

Well, I am sorry the links didn't work for you, because they did for me. If you are not willing to google yourself since the links I provided didn't work on your computer, then I guess there is nothing more I can do.

They don' t work for me either, so I think you need to work on your google skills and get back to us when you can actually support your points.

You could provide links that work to back up the claim that you made.

She's called Biden a "drunken Irishman."
She's compared Obama's book to "Mein Kampf."
She called John Edwards a "faggot."
Public schoolteachers are "tax-supported parasites."

That's just a few. I'm not really interested in spending my morning being steeped in the vileness that is Ann Coulter.

The links didn't work for me either.

I also seem to remember Ms. Coulter dumping on the 9/11 widows...let me see if I can find a link.

Excerpt from: http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2006/06/07/entertainment/main1690954.shtml

Coulter writes in a new book, "Godless: The Church of Liberalism," that a group of New Jersey widows whose husbands perished in the World Trade Center act "as if the terrorist attacks happened only to them."

She also wrote, "I've never seen people enjoying their husbands' deaths so much."

Now tell me, what do you think of that? And that's just one example of the horrible hatred she spews continually.

And the reason Ms. Coulter is known to everyone is because she spews such hatred & is so controversial & divisive that she constantly makes the news.
