This announcement was briefly at the top of the Drudge Report earlier today:
COMING THIS SUMMER: THE DEVIL AND MS. COULTER!
PUBLISHER ANNOUNCES NEW BOOK FROM NATION'S TOP-SELLING CONSERVATIVE AUTHOR...
OBAMA AS SATAN? DEMS CULT OF WICKED? WARNING ON AMERICA'S DISINTEGRATION?
"DETAILS: NONE." - from the original Drudge Report postingActually, there are a FEW details, like this synopsis, from her publisher's press release:
The demon is a mob, and the mob is demonic.
The Democratic Party activates mobs, depends on mobs, coddles mobs, publicizes and celebrate 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.
(April 18, 2011 New York, NY)
Smash seven-time bestselling author, syndicated columnist, and conservative political commentator Ann Coulters forthcoming book will be titled DEMONIC: How the Liberal Mob is Endangering America. The book will be released in the U.S. and Canada on June 7, 2011 in hardcover, e-book, and audio formats.
In addition to disclosing the books title, Crown Forum also provided early details about its contents and unveiled the book jacket.
In DEMONIC, Miss Coulter portrays liberal thought in America as the result of mob behavior, including such groupthink earmarks as the creation of messiahs; a fear of scientific innovation; myth-making; a preference for images over words; and a casual embrace of contradictory ideas. Tracing the words and movements of liberal mobs, from the Ku Klux Klan and the SDS to anti-war and pro-ObamaCare fanatics today, Miss Coulter demonstrates how liberals have consistently used mob tactics to implement their idea of the general will.
Miss Coulter writes:Just as fire seeks oxygen, Democrats seek power, which is why they will always be found championing the mob whether the mob consists of Democrats lynching blacks or Democrats slandering the critics of Obama Care as racists.Among the other topics Miss Coulter will tackle in her book are:The lefts demonization of its enemies and idolization of its leaders;Describing liberal mobs over the centuries, Coulter writes,
the innumerable left-wing conspiracy theories; the Democratic Partys coddling of violent mobs;
the false history of civil rights given by the media;
the monstrous bloodletting of the French revolution as opposed to the American Revolution;
the truth about the original Tea Party; ObamaCare and other liberal ideas; liberals ferocious lies about the bestial rape of the Central Park jogger;
The New York Times promotion of violent mob uprisings from Castro to Khomeini;
and the desperate need for approval of the typical liberal.The details of totalitarian regimes may vary, but the inspiration is always the same Rousseauan fantasy: A select group of elites with absolutely no grasp of human nature will figure out the program, inflexibly impose it on the people and thereby regenerate mankind. You will note the similarities in all these totalitarian plans to many of the Democrats schemes.Exploding the liberal myth that conservatives are especially violent, Coulter says,The liberal rule is: Any criminal act involving white men and guns is a right-wing conspiracy, whereas any criminal enterprise involving non-whites and guns is the government violating someones civil liberties.Said Sean Desmond, Executive Editor, Crown Forum: DEMONIC is Ann Coulters most forceful and shocking book to date. Her bold and fearless assault on the prevailing liberal orthodoxy will be sure to ignite a lively national discussion.
(If a black man ever killed an abortionist, liberal brains would shut down.)
Miss Coulter is the author of seven books, all of which have appeared on the New York Times Best Sellers list.
Crown Forum is an imprint of the Crown Publishing Group division of Random House, Inc., whose parent company is Bertelsmann AG.

I used to be a big Coulter fan, but in the past year I have ceased being a supporter. Someone else can buy her books.
The title is accurate. Just look at Portland and Madison last week as the hateful, vulgar left displayed behavior that can only be described as evil. And the motive behind it all IS demonic, because liberalism seeks the destruction of anything with Judeo-Christian roots.
I look forward to seeing the lefty media introducing the book should Ann get on those shows. Maybe Ann can go on The View and throw holy water on Joyless and Whoopi for instructive effect.
Imagine the latte-sipping, NPR-listening typesetter at the New York Times who will likely have to set “Demonic: How the Liberal Mob is Endangering America” on the bestseller list week after week. Tears, bitter tears.
I used to be a big Coulter fan, but in the past year I have ceased being a supporter.I understand.
That seems to be a fairly common impulse lately among some who post here. :(For the record, though, what SPECIFICALLY bothers you about Ann now?
Is it her lack of support for the "birth certificate" issue?And, are those concerns sufficiently egregious to dump Ann now...
Or her "gay outreach" with GOProud?
Or her support of Chris Christie (RINO, New Jersey)?
...in spite of her many OTHER valiant efforts -- to fight the good fight against liberalism?
Go tell Hillary your meme didn't work, and ask her for a new one.
I **love** the eagle’s bulging eyes — in that that old animated gif, created by FReeper REGISTERED.
What the hell are you talking about?
I have come to view her as more of a gadfly than anything else - the Presidential candidates she supports, the losers she has dated. Perhaps I have seen her a few too many times on FNC.
Lots of trolls posting here lately. :(
George Soros certainly seems to be getting his money's worth.
See, for instance:
The above Coulter comment is pure gold.
Yep.That's a rather SHORT answer for my MUCH LONGER question. :o)
So, for you, it's "all of the above," eh?So, you don't think much of the Gipper's philosophy?
"The person who agrees with you 80 percent of the time is a friend and an ally -- not a 20-percent traitor."
I wish trolls came out of the closet and showed their zero gushing. By the way, why is Obama not coming out yet on being musli. gay and part of the Demon world Coulter talks about?
I’ve never read a Coulter book.
I am not a troll. I don’t like Ann either.
Coulter is in it for Coulter. That is fine, but I wish she would keep her anti-eligibility crap to herself.
I know the liberals like to throw the word around, but I wish FReepers would stop using the term “birther”. I’m a concerned American citizen who believes our laws should be followed.
I will not give her any of my money.
I didn' realize that not gushing over Ann Coulter makes one a troll and a minion of George Soros and Hitlery.LOL!
Perhaps you only POST like a troll -- but are not one. :o)Sorry. It is a sore subject around here lately.
But you **do** qualify for posting this thread's top "straw man" fallacy. :o)I was talking about SUPPORTING a long-time FRiend -- even if we do not always agree with her -- not "gushing over" her.
(Not that there's anything wrong with THAT, either! :o)
It’s the 20% that really bothers me. Especially her dismissal of the birther issue and the smug way she did it. Like Beck and BOR.
How is saying you don’t like Coulter posting “like a troll—but are not one”?
I have been here a while, and I do know that blind worship of any so-called conservative is not what FR is about.
Ann, you go girl.
Ive never read a Coulter book.Wow.
Then, may I suggest starting with TREASON -- while you are waiting for her new one?Here is one of my favorite reviews of that book, from www.claremont.org:She certainly did her research on THAT one -- demolishing the "common knowledge" about "McCarthyism" -- even among otherwise well-informed conservatives.
A review of Treason: Liberal Treachery from the Cold War to the War on Terrorism, by Ann CoulterBy William F. Buckley, Jr.
-- snip --
...As expected, much of the book is devoted to rejecting commonly accepted charges against Senator Joe McCarthy. She gives the reader the names of a dozen indisputably traitorous actors who worked in government while concealing their ties to the Soviet Union. Quite properly, she lists Alger Hiss and Owen Lattimore as prime examples of liberal obstinacy, and she wonders very much out loud whether that obstinacy arose because these liberals were concerned with due process and the presumption of innocence and all that, or whether they were, in heart and mind, on the Soviet side in the Cold War...
-- snip --
...She writes with scorn and derision of the critics of McCarthy and of the lengths to which many of them went, and still do. The late Brent Bozell and I spent 18 months attempting to distinguish what McCarthy had said and charged in the years we examined, and where (not often) he was indefensible. Our book was titled McCarthy And His Enemies, because we sought to make the point that many enemies of McCarthy had earned a derision and contempt that they nevertheless never had experienced in the cooler, reflective chambers of historical criticism. Coulter's rejoinders to many of McCarthy's critics are well aimed, and the offenders eminently vulnerable...
-- snip --
...There was the dogged New York Times defense of the so-called Lackawanna Muslims, brought in by the FBI and interrogated. The Times expressed deep sympathy for the detainees, and reported the dismay of their neighbors. "It was just like the Times's man-on-the-street interviews on Bush's tax plan. For the Times, an ordinary American is a sociology professor in Oregon whose wife teaches tantric sex at the community college." Coulter accosts the defense of the detained Yemeni-Americans to the effect that they were no more suspicious than the man next door with some of the data the FBI had come up with. "The prosecution's case, at least in part, is that a terrorist can be the kid next door. Yesif the kid next door trained with al-Qaeda. Mohammed Atta lived next door to somebody, too. Don't all criminals live next door to somebody? What was the Times's point?"
There is a lot of such fun and shrewdness as this in Ann Coulter's book, but there is also mischief, which of course can be fun. Especially mischief about the other guy.
William F. Buckley, Jr. is the founder of National Review.
I have been here a while, and I do know that blind worship of any so-called conservative is not what FR is about.O.K., it looks like we may have a TIE in this current thread's "straw man" contest. :o)
For those of you who are playing along at home, the "straw man" logical fallacy involves changing the other person's position to something that you can attack more easily -- particularly when it is not true -- so that you can then refute that easier "pretend" (i.e., "straw man") argument.As a PROMOTOR, I get this kind of thing a lot -- particularly on threads about Governor Palin.
For the record, I believe that you can AGGRESSIVELY SUPPORT and PASSIONATELY DEFEND public figures who are on our side of the issue MOST of the time without "worshiping" them.
There’s enough Coulter on the internet to keep me busy. Probably read excerpts of every book.
I will not be buying it. Maybe other “cranks” feel the same.
Apparently, for many people, Ann's lack of enthusiasm for the "birth certificate" issue is a deal breaker.I agree that Obama should have to provide at least as much documentation as is required of a ten-year-old who wants to play baseball in Little League.
And, I think that his reluctance to release virtually ANY information about his "non-American" past resonates very strongly with those of us who were raised in a culture that promotes a love for American exceptionalism.
He must be hiding SOMETHING.Still, I prefer ANN -- and the rest of the 80% where we agree, to DONALD TRUMP, for example...
... who is solid on his 20% "birth certificate" attack on Obama, but scares the Hell out of me with his 80% support for liberal positions.In California, we have had a VERY BAD recent experience with another "celebrity businessman" who TALKED like a conservative, but GOVERNED like a liberal.
I fear that Trump may be similarly deceiving conservatives nationwide today -- particularly those for whom the "birth certificate" issue is paramount. :(
Remind me never to get in an argument with you! (Not that I ever would - you agree with me far too often for that!)
Let me know if you'd like to be added to the Ann Coulter ping list.
Talk about picking at straws.
How in the world did you get to Arnold in CA from some of us not worshiping the book pimping of Ann Coulter?
Every post of yours on this thread sounds like you are trying to pick a fight along with your obvious crush on Coulter.
Just accept the fact that some of us FReepers don’t like what she is selling.
Or are we not allowed to think for ourselves?
Ann is leanest meanest RINO exposer of all...
The liberals don't really care about her or her books..
Its the RINOs that despise her..
Maybe. She is tough, I’ll give her that.
I’m sure she will sell many books and continue to piss off the left. But personally I don’t like her.
...How in the world did you get to Arnold in CA from some of us not worshiping the book pimping of Ann Coulter?LOLOL!
Do try to keep up!
I'll type more slowly this time. ;)I am AGRRESSIVELY PROMOTING Ann here on FR -- as also I do for my OTHER passions: Governor Palin, the new "Atlas Shrugged" movie, supporting our troops (and President Bush, when he deserved it), organizing protests against Hillary/John Kerry/Dan Rather, etc.
It is a "straw man" fallacy (i.e., a willful misrepresentation of what I do, done in an attempt to discredit my actions) to use such emotionally-charged words as "pimp," "worship," "blindly follow," or "have a crush on," et al -- to characterize what I do here.And, I'm O.K. with "aggressively promoting" Ann on this forum, despite the fact that many here do not like that Ann has higher priorities than the "birth certificate" issue -- and in fact, sees this as a counter-productive distraction, which could cost us support among the independents.
She may be right. Or not.
But, I like and respect enough of her OTHER positions (where I **do** agree with her) to not let "the perfect be the enemy of the good," as it were.
On the other hand, I have NOT been "aggressively promoting" Donald Trump here -- even though I **do** like his tweaking Obama (and the media) on the "birth certificate" issue -- because I do not agree with him on many of his other (apparently quite liberal) positions.In part, my apprehension about The Donald is the result of getting burned by supporting a similarly "populist conservative" Schwarzenegger.
ANN has earned a lot of "grace" from me over the years, with her long history of consistently effective attacks on liberalism.
TRUMP has not.
And "The Governator's" abject betrayal of his alleged "conservative" philosophy once he got into office is one of the main reasons for my apprehension with "The Donald" now.I. hope. this. helps. :o)
I hope you know you are arguing against issues I, nor anyone else on this thread, have made.
My only comment was I don’t care for Ann Coulter. You have a problem with that opinion and have now written a small opus on everything including the kitchen sink.
Type as slow or as fast as you want to. And don’t forget to keep adding the “LOLs” where nothing posted was funny. I’ll step out of your way.
have = haven’t on my post above
(I knew that sentence was wrong the minute I hit the post button. It still doesn’t look right, but it’s the best I can do at 3am)
If you don't want your opinions challenged by others, here's a hint - don't post them on FR. Start a blog instead and don't allow comments.
Now the projecting starts.
Take a look upthread. I gave my opinion. You had a problem with it.
Or are we not allowed to think for ourselves?
Like I said, if you don't like having your opinions challenged, don't post them on FR.
And if you can't engage in fair debate (like you have demostrated on this thread), you will get challenged furher.
I second your crank.
Only 5 posts to the first Ann-bashing, single-issue poster!
Take a hike, troll.
