The demon is a mob, and the mob is demonic. The Democratic get together prompts mobs, depends upon mobs, coddles mobs, announces and celebrates mobs—it is the mob. Sweeping in its scope and constant in its argument, Demonic explains the peculiarities of liberals as ordinary groupthink habit. to appreciate mobs is to appreciate liberals.
In her so much provocative publication so far, Ann Coulter argues that liberals show all of the mental features of a mob, for instance:
Liberal Groupthink: “The similar mob mentality that leads another way law-abiding humans to hurl rocks at police officers additionally leads differently clever humans to refuse to think something they haven’t heard on NPR.”
Liberal Schemes: “No topic how mad the plan is—Fraternité, the ‘New Soviet Man,’ the grasp Race, the good step forward, the Cultural Revolution, construction a brand new Society, ObamaCare—a mob will think it.”
Liberal Enemies: “Instead of ‘counterrevolutionaries,’ liberals’ competitors are referred to as ‘haters,’ ‘those who search to divide us,’ ‘tea baggers,’ and ‘right-wing hate groups.’ in the meantime, conservatives name liberals ‘liberals’—and that makes them testy.”
Liberal Justice: “In the realm of the liberal, as on the earth of Robespierre, there are not any crimes, merely criminals.”
Liberal Violence: “If Charles Manson’s fans hadn’t killed Roman Polanski’s spouse, Sharon Tate, Clinton could have pardoned him, too, and he’d most likely be educating at Northwestern University.”
bringing up the daddy of mob psychology, Gustave Le Bon, Coulter catalogs the Left’s mob behaviors: the production of messiahs, the phobia of medical innovation, the mythmaking, the choice for photographs over phrases, the shortcoming of morals, and the informal include of contradictory rules.
Coulter strains the heritage of the liberal mob to the French Revolution and Robespierre’s revolutionaries (delineating a transparent contrast from America’s founding fathers), who easily proclaimed that they have been workout the “general will” ahead of slaughtering their fellow electorate “for the great of mankind.”
equally, as Coulter demonstrates, liberal mobs, from pupil radicals to white-trash racists to anti-war and pro-ObamaCare lovers at the present time, have constantly used violence to enforce their inspiration of the “general will.”
this isn't the yankee culture; it's the culture of Stalin, of Hitler, of the guillotine—and the culture of the yankee Left.
because the heirs of the French Revolution, Democrats have a historical past that comprises pandering to mobs, again and again, whereas Republicans, heirs to the yankee Revolution, have frequently stood for peaceful order.
Hoping to muddy this frightening fact, liberals slanderously accuse conservatives in their personal crimes—assassination plots, conspiracy theorizing, political violence, include of the Ku Klux Klan. Coulter exhibits that actually the other: Political violence—mob violence—is continually a Democratic affair.
Surveying centuries of mob events, Coulter demonstrates that the mob is usually harmful. And but, she argues, starting with the civil rights circulate within the sixties, americans have misplaced their typical, inherited aversion to mobs. certainly, such a lot americans don't know what they're even facing.
Only by means of spotting the mobs and their demonic nature can the United States start to shield itself.
