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.

Wow. What's she been smoking?

Ann Coulter...an embarrassment to all humanity. I don't know a true Christian that wants anything to do with her or the bile she spews.

I suspect Ms. Coulter has been inspired to write her books after reading posts in online forums by progressives about Bush and Palin.

Pfffffffffft. Coulter has been spouting vitriol for years. It's her stock in trade.

Bush and Palin can't seem to manage to speak, have little intellect, and even less curiosity. But they have enough followers of the "emperor's new coat" variety to reinforce their shield of profound self esteem and absorption.

The same old progressives on these boards have been bashing Palin for years. Yawn. You need not even try to point this out to them, for Obama's call for civility does not apply to them. If someone threatens to rape her, they say she deserves it, if someone stalks her, she deserves it.

Nothings gets these regulars worked up faster than the two words "Sarah Palin". It doesn't matter if the entire world is falling apart, it seems the only important thing worth discussing on these boards is how stupid Sarah Palin is. Pretty pathetic and it makes trying to discuss real issues next to impossible.

Read back through the thread. The poster who brought up Palin is one who typically endorses a conservative viewpoint.

I have been posting here for years. Long before Palin was a vice-presidential candidate. In that period of time, I don't ever recall any of us here saying that Sarah Palin deserves rape threats or stalking. So unless you have proof to the contrary, I consider such accusations to be baseless.

As regards "regulars" here, I've never seen your handle before and submit that unless you have been here in another guise, are not in any position to speak on the topic. Pretty pathetic indeed.

It wasn't a "progressive" that brought up the subject of Palin in this thread, in case you didn't notice. And I never heard anyone on this board say she deserves to be stalked, much less raped. And I'm pretty sure you haven't either.

I doubt anyone could keep track of all the hate Palin or hate Bush threads and posts on ivillage over the years. It's worse on some sites.

This google search palin hate site:ivillage.com

produces 1700 results. That's a lot of hate and Palin in the same thread or article. Replace Palin with Bush and there are only 600. My guess is ivillage either ages off older threads, or has done a change in forum management around the end of the Bush era.

I wonder from your google search how many of those thousands of posts are from conservatives who claim that liberals "hate" Sarah Palin.

I looked at the first ten Google search results. That "hate" search parameter resulted in hits such as in the context of "love her or hate her", "love to hate her", Bristol's dancing, Palin's hating her job, a postreply response accusing liberals of hating Palin, etc.

In those first ten, there was one post by an iVillage member who actually said she hated Palin. Interesting how that works.

The results don't justify the claim made that there is massive hatred of Palin here on iVillage.
