It should be titled "Brainless" - more apt in the case of Ann Coulter. I didnt think I would survive the ordeal of reading this book. Ann Coulter is a prominent right-wing media personality in America. However, it is not her conservative views which get her attention: it is the outright hatred she has for the other, and the purposefully rude way in which she expresses her opinion, that does it.
Liberals hate her, and she revels in it. I read this book to see whether Ann is as black as shes It should be titled "Brainless" - more apt in the case of Ann Coulter. As a conservative Christian, she would like to see the USA become a theocracy; however, this is effectively prevented by the constitution which is secular.
So she goes on to attack secularism itself as a godless religion, rather than a logical frame work where all kinds of thoughts can coexist side by side. The book is very badly written, with plenty of her pet peeves surfacing time and again, interspersed with snide remarks and name-calling, so there is no coherent central argument.
However, the main points Ms. Coulter tries make can be summarised as: 1. Liberal thought is a godless religion, less logical than Christianity, which is being forced on Americans through public institutions and state schools.
Liberals want to live a life free of any moral code. Liberals are hell-bent on supporting criminals who have done heinous crimes against humanity, and time and again have sent prisoners out on parole who have again committed more serious crimes.
Muslims are a danger to the world. However, Liberals support Islamic terrorists. Liberal science has no evidential support: the deleterious effects of pesticides, global warming, the fact that AIDS attacks heterosexuals as well as gays, the benefits of embryonic stem cell research… these are all myths created by liberals to further their political agenda.
Anybody who speaks out against these is hounded out of the scientific establishment. She is in fact preaching to the choir. However, she purposefully misrepresents facts.
These half-truths are more dangerous than outright lies; even those who dislike her rhetoric may fall for the veneer of truth in her analysis. I did a quick research on two cases which Ann Coulter presented as proof of the liberal penchant for loosening inhuman criminals on society. What is more, she says that their liberal supporters were aware that they were guilty, but still lied to the authorities and public.
More importantly, there is every reason to believe that the defendants were not given a fair trial. The second case is more distressing. Dennis Dechaine was convicted of kidnapping, sexually assaulting and murdering year-old Sarah Cherry in Maine. The way Coulter describes it, the case is airtight: Dechaine is another monster that the liberals are trying to save. But a quick search on the net will bring out the full facts — there were at least two other people who could be guilty.
It seems more of a case of government obstinacy than a conspiracy to free a convicted criminal. If Ann had her way, lynch mobs would replace trial courts. She is angry with the drawn-out trials, the pleas for leniency, and the mounting pressure to ban capital punishment. In her opinion, harsh punishment is the only deterrent for violent crime: for all her hatred of Sharia law, one feels that Saudi Arabia would be her ideal country.
It seems that the conservatives value human life only when in the foetal stage! Coulter singles out some individuals for special treatment — one of the main recipients of her venom is Massachusetts Governor Michael Dukakis.
Godless: The Church of Liberalism
Quote from Godless: As a matter of faith, liberals believe: Darwinism is a fact, people are born gay, child-molesters can be rehabilitated, recycling is a virtue, and chastity is not. While this statement, like most in the book, is meaningless do over ,, people believe all of these things? Does she think chastity is a virtue? If so, is the year-old never-married woman still saving herself? While certainly there are some Democrats who have trophy wives, one thing that some people noticed is that a lot of the GOP class of many of whom were unexpectedly thrust into congressional seats--suddenly gave their wives walking papers when they became big shots--soon-to-be-indicted Congressman Bob Ney is a good example.
