A new Ann Coulter book: 'Demonic: How the Liberal Mob is Endangering America'

Anncoulter_feb2011

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.

The liberal mob will burn this book and then the same liberal mob will continue to harass a conservative preacher who burned a different book.

does any one buy her crap? The Koch brothers must be backing her!

Ms. Coulter needs to look in her own backyard before she observes anyone else.

guess Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, George Washington, John Locke, Franklin Roosevelt, John Kennedy, Martin Luther King are part of that terrible liberal mob.

The best way to deal with the likes of Ann Coulter is to ignore her completely and don't buy any of her books. She writes swill just to make money and we don't need to make a liar rich.

This piece of .... is a real fruitcake playing on the pocketbooks of idiots.

Ever notice how these right wingers, wanna bee fascists, project ignorance.

"the innumerable left-wing conspiracy theories" - Classic! I hope that's the title of her next book. It'll need a single word to start, though. How about, "Jesuscide: the innumerable left-wing conspiracy theories"

I'm sure her great hope is that liberals will buy her book to burn it. Fat chance. Ann Coulter is a figment of her own imagination, trying to make money by being as controversial as she can be. I can't imagine, in this time of real trouble, that there are people out there who would waste their money on what this stick figure with no soul has to say. The woman is a pathetic joke.

Wow! The very first LA Times Book Review of a book they haven't even read. Left or Right, does anyone else have a problem with the this?

The Democratic Party has traditionally included various disorganized/disenfranchised groups to increase their numbers.

At least Will Rogers thought so. Not exactly news...

Apparently Joe does not see the significant difference between a book and religious text. I am not sure burning an Ann Coulter book would generate the same hoop-la as a Bible or Quran burning.

The KKK is a bunch of liberals? She'll just make anything up. Ridiculous.

Satan's little henchman. What a scary mind that creates such a perverted view of reality.

"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."

LIBERAL thought? You sure you don't mean RELIGIOUS thought? I mean, did you actually read this?

She be laughing all the way to the bank - again. She's mirror, telling the radical right exactly what they want to hear. She's learned that the more outrageous the better, and the more controversial the better. Simply stated, it's a sad commentary on the state of our nation's political scene.

Miss Coulter portrays Conservative 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 regressive mobs, from the Ku Klux Klan and the SDS to pro-war and anti-ObamaCare fanatics today, Miss Coulter demonstrates how Conservatives have consistently used mob tactics to implement their idea of the “general will.”...

There, now it makes sense.

Same stuff different cover... Need we say more?? She's probably banned in most other industrialized nations. She makes NO sense.

Groundbreaking and available at a closed Borders near you...

Ann Coulter is a marketing genuius whom many writers secretly admire and envy. She is interesting, articulate, can write well and is easy on the eyes; that's the source of her genius, with a little help from good genes. When Ann is around I feel a little safer in the world. She speaks her mind and most of us, whether we admit it or not, listen. Good for Ann and her continued success. I cannot wait to read her new book!

That woman is not relevant. What has she really done beside write books saying I hate liberals and you should, too.?

From the comments posted her by Libs she is obviously right - plus no one has even bothered to read the book and the liberal mob is bashing it and her.
Hmmmm

I'm not sure which is more pathetic. The fact that she writes the same thing over and over and makes money from it. Or that the same fools who buy her books pay to read the same thing over and over.

If Coulter's books are so inaccurate and far fetched, why does she sell so many?

May be it's because Ms. Coulter's books illustrate how things are on the Left. When Liberals (and socialists, and communists, and Marxists, and radicals) don't like what you say, they don't refute it with facts (because they can't). Instead, they shout you down, threaten you, call you names like "racist", and other childish, sometimes criminal behaviors.

Do Liberals understand facts, logic and reason? It doesn't appear so.

Ann Coulter, you are spot-on.


Freedom of speech is a valuable tool. The evil that this author spews is part of the equation.

Surely we could curb her toxic lies by ignoring her books. A bit of public shunning might cool her down. What on earth sustains her--our money?

All Liberals require history, political science and economic lessons before bashing someone's book before reading it. Whatever...

Coulter says, nuclear radiation is good for you. Enough said.

Thank you, Ann, for speaking up for the vast majority of Americans... And having the guts to stick to your guns... You are a credit to the American female-- now, eat something, you're too damn skinny, girl...

Another republican whack job. So what's new?

Great! Just what we need, more polarization. Thanks Ann!

Who is this woman? She looks like a witch.

She probably came up with the title by looking in the mirror & seeing what demonic looks like. She is evil and hopfully people are just tired of her hate speech.

As an engineer, the assertion I found most amusing was:
"a fear of scientific innovation"
Which party is over-represented by religous fundamentalists and capitalist naysayers that reject mainstream scientific consensus (e.g. evolution and global climate change) based upon scriptute and party dogma?

On a related matter, a Pew research poll revealed that republicans are vastly underrepresented as scientists (6% self-reported compared to 23% in general population). The poll offerred no reason for this discrepency, but perhaps its the right's constant attack on science and the profession?

Hilarious. Coulter writes a book that presumably illustrates the misguided genius behind liberal group-think and before the book is even available the lefties hoist their pitchforks to prove her point. Wake up people. Stop shouting down your opponents, keep an open mind and question everyone. Both parties have more than their fair share of scumbags and neither side will change if they can take your vote for granted.

That horse really has a problem with liberals. Interestingly, every point called out in the synapse of book could be applied to the Tea Party mob just as easily. But that's why I never take anything a horse says seriously.

"I'm not sure which is more pathetic. The fact that she writes the same thing over and over and makes money from it. Or that the same fools who buy her books pay to read the same thing over and over."--Good point why pay for the same tired ideas repeated ad noseum, when you can come to the internet and get see ideas repeated for free.

Who is this woman? She looks like a witch.

Don't insult witches by comparing them to Coulter. (The Ku Klux Klan...liberals?)

She crawls out from underneath wherever it is she hides, pushes another political partisan hack job of a book, suckers the morons on the right to buy it, telling them "I speak for you!" then fades back into the shadows, pockets full of the idiots cash, laughing all the while. I'd love to see her debate ANYONE of substance. She hides behind her printed words where no one can confront her on her "facts" and allegations. In the real world, she's totally irrelevant.

If she is so bad how come all you liberal welfare junkies no so much about her and her books. If you liberals would just stop buying her books she wouldn't have all those number one top selling books.. LOL

Most of these comments only vindicate Coulter's views. The conspiracy theories like: The Koch Brother's Are Pulling The Strings! The liberal mob actually believes that the Koch brothers are responsible for public union reform in Wisconsin even though they donated .41% of the total funds Walker raised in 2010. I guess it's what MSNBC has told them to think. No mention of George Soros and the fact that he's propped up liberal organizations for decades. Then of course the liberal myth that there really is no such thing as a violent liberal mob. Just look at the union slobs that left Madison looking like Tijuana, and typically show up at Tea Party rallies to shout down the speakers and boo during the national anthem. Or the SEIU mobs that show up at private residences of people who disagree with them to terrorize whoever lives there. Imagery over words? You bet. Who can forget the mobs of Obama voters screaming that he was going to pay their mortgages and pay for their gas? Based on what? His campaign logo? If you want to see violence in language just look at the responses on any liberal blog in response to stories like "Bristol Palin buys house in Phoenix". They are worse than unhinged. Get a life. That's classic mob behavior. Why do liberal dolts hate her? Easy. She is successful, articulate and totally unafraid.

[[She is interesting, articulate, can write well and is easy on the eyes; that's the source of her genius, with a little help from good genes.]]

"Easy on the eyes"?!

Does Secretariat get you all hot and bothered, too?

I've finally figured out how Coulter writes her books. First she writes the truth about everything, then she goes to the Find/Change feature in her computer and changes the word "Republican" to "Democrat" throughout the manuscript.

Uhhhh, yeah Vincent. The Klan was 100% white southern democrats. You may want to look it up. Ever heard of the "Civil War"? Who lost? Who was upset about it? And who rounded up blacks as a result of that development? I'll give you a hint: Lincoln was a Republican and they weren't supporters of his. Maybe that will give you a start on your journey.

"...portrays [conservative] thought in America as the result of mob behavior [the tea party], including such groupthink earmarks as the creation of messiahs [Reagan]; a fear of scientific innovation [stem cells/climate change]; myth-making [private market expansion of health care is socialist]; a preference for images over words [what?]; and a casual embrace of contradictory ideas [pro-life, but let the mother die]. "

Sounds like she's starting to mellow at last.

well there's no denying coulter's an expert in the demonic

Wow ... who knew Ann Coulter could write, if thats what we're calling ranting now. It is very heart warming to see that someone is still willing to pay money to keep her off the unemployment line. It's unfortunate that Koch industries can't employ everyone who due to lack of skills, other than an ability to rant, finds themselves unemployed. Congratulations Ann, May you continue to get paid for whatever lip service it is that you give. keep 'em smiling.

In high school most students learned that one of the biggest sins that the Nazi Party used against it own German citizens was that it relentlessly demonized them.

They at least tried to be creative about it.

Ms. Coulter is a such a hack not even Joseph Goebbels would have employed her. Of course her target audience is a bit more far right and down right dangerously primed to hate their fellow citizens than the German people were.

Yes - when it comes to propaganda like this it is fully correct to reference the actions of Nazi Germany.

I have never heard of Coulter. Who is this man?

Ann and her books are so necessary to bring a liberal's blood to a boil. You can just see the results in the hateful comments by those bleeding hearts who care so much for everyone...yeah, right.
