Coulter has targeted her audience and shakes the rattle in front of them. They are the Movement Conservatives who need constant reassurance because their core doctrine is incoherent. This is the fusion conservatism invented by turncoat Red Frank Meyer and publicized in Wm F Buckley’s NATIONAL REVIEW. The ‘fusion’ name comes up welding together the limited government of Robert Taft with the unlimited National Security State.
Buckley acknowledged that the contradiction. He said the explosion in the growth of Big Government, caused by the National Security State, would be a ‘temporary’ evil until the Cold War was won.
If that sounds like Marx’s promise of ‘the withering away of the state,’ it has the same effect. Nothing withers away on its own.
If Rush Limbaugh’s schtick is rabble rouser radio, Coulter’s is books. Her books lack real intellectual depth and are really designed to let her audience of middle-aged conservatives let off steam. Her arguments are meant to be provocative. They’re not designed for intellectual discourse but bar room arguments. There, shouting matches and brawls usually ensue. If, by rare chance, her lines do win somebody over, all you’ve won is a drunk. Whoopee! That’ll really change the world!
But, again, like Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter has a more insidious purpose. To wit: Deflect any serious criticism of the System which is essentially a Dictatorship of the Global Financial Elite. For proof, just ask anyone who tried to call into Limbaugh with a criticism of the Federal Reserve. For her part, Coulter skillfully directs anger at generally impotent liberal targets. It’s fun to vent on the likes of Rosie O’Donnell, who generally has it coming. But Rosie has no power so the vented anger is wasted.
And like Glenn Beck, Ann Coulter is absolutely venomous towards widows and families of those who perished on 9/11 and want real answers. There, like Beck, she shows her true colors. Even Rosie has a better position than her.
Ann Coulter wrote book called TREASON which generally indicts liberal Democrats. Trouble is, some of the biggest acts of outright treason have Republican fingerprints all over them.
According to the Israelis, it was Republican Allen Dulles who tipped off the Nazis that the British had broken their code. That’s why the Wehrmacht maintained complete radio silence leading to the Battle of the Budge which nearly defeated the Allies on the Western Front.
And what about the 1980 Reagan-Bush Campaign making a deal with Iran not to release the hostages until Carter was defeated? That was the real beginning of Iran-Contra of which Coulter is silent about.
In between, there was the Nixon Regime getting the CIA involved big time in the global drug trade.
Coulter is silent on this as well. It’s more fun to attack a Hollywood airhead like Jane Fonda. Fonda’s antics might have been obnoxious but she didn’t have any power to do damage which amounts to anything.
Ann Coulter leads would-be patriots in the wrong direction.
