The demon is a mob, and the mob is demonic. The Democratic social gathering prompts mobs, depends upon mobs, coddles mobs, pronounces and celebrates mobs—it is the mob. Sweeping in its scope and incessant in its argument, Demonic explains the peculiarities of liberals as regular groupthink habit. to appreciate mobs is to appreciate liberals.
In her such a lot provocative e-book to this point, Ann Coulter argues that liberals show the entire mental features of a mob, for instance:
Liberal Groupthink: “The similar mob mentality that leads another way law-abiding humans to hurl rocks at law enforcement officials additionally leads differently clever humans to refuse to think whatever they haven’t heard on NPR.”
Liberal Schemes: “No subject how mad the plan is—Fraternité, the ‘New Soviet Man,’ the grasp Race, the nice step forward, the Cultural Revolution, construction a brand new Society, ObamaCare—a mob will think it.”
Liberal Enemies: “Instead of ‘counterrevolutionaries,’ liberals’ competitors are known 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 this planet of Robespierre, there are not any crimes, in basic terms criminals.”
Liberal Violence: “If Charles Manson’s fans hadn’t killed Roman Polanski’s spouse, Sharon Tate, Clinton may have pardoned him, too, and he’d most likely be instructing at Northwestern University.”
mentioning the daddy of mob psychology, Gustave Le Bon, Coulter catalogs the Left’s mob behaviors: the production of messiahs, the phobia of clinical innovation, the mythmaking, the choice for photographs over phrases, the inability of morals, and the informal embody of contradictory principles.
Coulter strains the historical past 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 exercise the “general will” prior to slaughtering their fellow electorate “for the nice 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 continually used violence to enforce their inspiration of the “general will.”
this isn't the yank culture; it's the culture of Stalin, of Hitler, of the guillotine—and the culture of the yank Left.
because the heirs of the French Revolution, Democrats have a heritage that contains pandering to mobs, many times, whereas Republicans, heirs to the yankee Revolution, have frequently stood for peaceful order.
Hoping to muddy this scary fact, liberals slanderously accuse conservatives in their personal crimes—assassination plots, conspiracy theorizing, political violence, embody of the Ku Klux Klan. Coulter indicates that in reality the other: Political violence—mob violence—is constantly a Democratic affair.
Surveying centuries of mob hobbies, Coulter demonstrates that the mob is often harmful. And but, she argues, starting with the civil rights flow within the sixties, americans have misplaced their normal, inherited aversion to mobs. certainly, so much american citizens don't know what they're even facing.
Only through spotting the mobs and their demonic nature can the United States start to shield itself.
