Conservative commentator Ann Coulter is coming to bookshelves again, publisher Crown announced Tuesday. "Demonic: How the Liberal Mob is Endangering America" will come to bookstores June 7.

Coulter seems to be courting controversy with the book, in which she writes, "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 ObamaCare as racists."

An advance copy of the book has not reached my desk, so I'll share Crown's description of it:

Miss Coulter portrays liberal thought in America as the result of mob behavior, including such groupthink earmarks as the creation of messiahs; a fear of scientific innovation; myth-making; a preference for images over words; and a casual embrace of contradictory ideas. Tracing the words and movements of liberal mobs, from the Ku Klux Klan and the SDS to anti-war and pro-ObamaCare fanatics today, Miss Coulter demonstrates how liberals have consistently used mob tactics to implement their idea of the “general will.”...

Among the other topics Miss Coulter will tackle in her book are: The left’s demonization of its enemies and idolization of its leaders; the innumerable left-wing conspiracy theories; the Democratic Party’s coddling of violent mobs; the false history of civil rights given by the media; the monstrous bloodletting of the French revolution as opposed to the American Revolution; the truth about the original Tea Party; ObamaCare and other liberal ideas; liberals’ ferocious lies about the bestial rape of the Central Park jogger; The New York Times’ promotion of violent mob uprisings from Castro to Khomeini; and the desperate need for approval of the typical liberal.

"Demonic: How the Liberal Mob is Endangering America" will be Coulter's eighth book.
