New for 2011
Synopsis:
The demon is a mob, and the mob is demonic.  Democratic Party
activates mobs, depends on mobs, coddles mobs, publicizes and
celebrates mobs—it is the mob. Sweeping in its scope and
relentless in its argument, Demonic explains the peculiarities of
liberals as standard groupthink behavior. To understand mobs is
to understand liberals.

In her most provocative book to date, Ann Coulter argues that
liberals exhibit all the psychological characteristics of a mob, for
instance:
  • Liberal Groupthink: “The same mob mentality that leads
    otherwise law-abiding people to hurl rocks at cops also
    leads otherwise intelligent people to refuse to believe
    anything they haven’t heard on NPR.”
  • Liberal Schemes: “No matter how mad the plan is—
    Fraternité, the New Soviet Man, the Master Race, the
    Great Leap Forward, the Cultural Revolution, Building a
    New Society, ObamaCare—a mob will embrace it.”
  • Liberal Enemies: “Instead of counterrevolutionaries,
    liberals’ opponents are called haters, those who seek to
    divide us, tea baggers, and right-wing hate groups.
    Meanwhile, conservatives call liberals liberals—and that
    makes them testy.”
  • Liberal Justice: “In the world of the liberal, as in the world
    of Robespierre, there are no crimes, only criminals.”
  • Liberal Violence: “If Charles Manson’s followers hadn’t
    killed Roman Polanski’s wife, Sharon Tate, Clinton would
    have pardoned him, too, and he’d probably be teaching at
    Northwestern University.”

Citing the father of mob psychology, Gustave Le Bon, Coulter
catalogs the Left’s mob behaviors: the creation of messiahs, the
fear of scientific innovation, the myth making, the preference for
images over words, the lack of morals, and the casual embrace of
contradictory ideas.

Coulter traces the history of the liberal mob to the French
Revolution and Robespierre’s revolutionaries (delineating a clear
distinction from America’s founding fathers), who simply
proclaimed that they were exercising the “general will” before
slaughtering their fellow citizens “for the good of mankind.”

Similarly, as Coulter demonstrates, liberal mobs, from student
radicals to white-trash racists to anti-war and pro-ObamaCare
fanatics today, have consistently used violence to implement
their idea of the “general will.”

This is not the American tradition; it is the tradition of Stalin, of
Hitler, of the guillotine—and the tradition of the American Left.

As the heirs of the French Revolution, Democrats have a history
that consists of pandering to mobs, time and again, while
Republicans, heirs to the American Revolution, have regularly
stood for peaceable order.

Hoping to muddy this horrifying truth, liberals slanderously
accuse conservatives of their own crimes—assassination plots,
conspiracy theorizing, political violence, embrace of the Ku Klux
Klan. Coulter shows that the truth is the opposite: Political
violence—mob violence—is always a Democratic affair.

Surveying two centuries of mob movements, Coulter
demonstrates that the mob is always destructive. And yet, she
argues, beginning with the civil rights movement in the sixties,
Americans have lost their natural, inherited aversion to mobs.
Indeed, most Americans have no idea what they are even dealing
with.

Only by recognizing the mob and its demonic nature can America
begin to defend itself.

Revolution as the polluted source of Leftism and the violence
and degeneracy that inevitably follow.
Many people on the Right will gain a deeper understanding of
history from
Demonic. Our troubles didn't start with Marx and
Lenin. Had they not lived, there were plenty of others --
Proudhon, Bakunin, Kropotkin, etc. -- who attempted to expand
upon the twisted legacy of 1789.
It would be revealing to search out other writers who grasped
that the French Revolution was more than just a severe period
of civil unrest, but rather the start of a new age where violence
would become inseparable from politics. Edmund Burke
certainly comes to mind here.
Among 20th century writers, I believe the one who most
anticipates Miss Coulter is Erik von Kuehnelt-Leddihn
(1909-1999), the longtime National Review columnist.
I have read his
Leftism Revisited, From de Sade and Marx to
Hitler and Pol Pot
, (Washington, D.C. Regnery Gateway, 1990)
no less than three times.
Kuehnelt-Leddihn argues that the French Revolution
represented an eruption of mob rage that was contained only by
the fact that modern communications and transportation didn't
exist.
Hitler and Stalin had the advantage of 20th century killing
technology, which allowed them to achieve a much larger body
count. But the Paris mob and their leaders yielded to nobody in
blood lust.
The French Revolution created a model for Leftist violence that
has proved remarkably consistent, particularly the targeting of
entire religious or social groups as "enemies of the people."

THANKS FOR ANOTHER LASER BEAM  OF TRUTH:
Ann Coulter further tightens the noose on liberal lunacy with
her latest expert use of the weapon the Left fears most . . . the
Truth.
With the ever-widening flow of information available to the
public courtesy of the Internet age, the Left, like bin Laden, has
fewer and fewer places left to hide. With astute skill, Ann
observes, collates, analyzes, then disseminates her brilliant and
cogent arguments with the same deadly force to the Left's
methods and intent as a Seal Team 6 projectile to Usama bin
Laden
What defense remains for the Left? To call her "crazy" of
course, as one reviewer already has. But while mobs in the
Muslim world burn U.S. flag anew, while protesting and working
themselves into a lather over bin Laden's untimely demise, it
doesn't change the inconvenient reality that both bin Laden and
the Left have already begun their gentle but inexorable journey
as they slip deeper and deeper into the irrelevancy of the cold
and dark depths of the deep blue sea. *****__Patriot Lynch
