The demon is a mob, and the mob is demonic. The Democratic Party activates mobs, depends on mobs, coddles mobs, publicizes and celebrates mobsÂ—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: Â“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 havenÂ’t heard on NPR.Â”
Liberal Schemes: Â“No matter how mad the plan isÂ—FraternitÃ©, the Â‘New Soviet Man,Â’ the Master Race, the Great Leap Forward, the Cultural Revolution, Building a New Society, ObamaCareÂ—a mob will believe it.Â”
Liberal Enemies: Â“Instead of Â‘counterrevolutionaries,Â’ liberalsÂ’ opponents are called Â‘haters,Â’ Â‘those who seek to divide us,Â’ Â‘tea baggers,Â’ and Â‘right-wing hate groups.Â’ Meanwhile, conservatives call liberals Â‘liberalsÂ’Â—and that makes them testy.Â”
Liberal Justice: Â“In the world of the liberal, as in the world of Robespierre, there are no crimes, only criminals.Â”
Liberal Violence: Â“If Charles MansonÂ’s followers hadnÂ’t killed Roman PolanskiÂ’s wife, Sharon Tate, Clinton would have pardoned him, too, and heÂ’d probably be teaching at Northwestern University.Â”
Citing the father of mob psychology, Gustave Le Bon, Coulter catalogs the LeftÂ’s mob behaviors: the creation of messiahs, the fear of scientific innovation, the mythmaking, 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 RobespierreÂ’s revolutionaries (delineating a clear distinction from AmericaÂ’s founding fathers), who simply proclaimed that they were exercising the Â“general willÂ” before slaughtering their fellow citizens Â“for the good of mankind.Â”
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 Â“general will.Â”
This is not the American tradition; it is the tradition of Stalin, of Hitler, of the guillotineÂ—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 crimesÂ—assassination plots, conspiracy theorizing, political violence, embrace of the Ku Klux Klan. Coulter shows that the truth is the opposite: Political violenceÂ—mob violenceÂ—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 mobs and their demonic nature can America begin to defend itself. . 2012. TRADE PAPERBACK.
