12 Unsettling Photos from the Young Conservative Convention Near Mar-a-Lago – VICE

Posted: December 25, 2019 at 4:43 pm


without comments

Last week, thousands of conservative high school and college students gathered for the annual Turning Point USA (TPUSA) Student Leadership Summit in West Palm Beach, Florida. The summit was held near Mar-a-Lago, and Donald Trump showed up himself for a last-minute talk on the conferences third day, during which he launched into a weird diatribe against wind power that went viral.

The event consisted of talks, networking events, and workshops, all of which were pretty much what you would expect at a gathering of the right that included Ben Shapiro, Sarah Sanders, and the president: Capitalism is good. Impeachment is a sham. The left wants to take your guns and turn the country into Venezuela. Antifa are the real fascists. Blah blah blah something to do with how referring to trans people by their correct pronouns is the same as 1984. Someone would say that socialism is bad and the crowd would cheer. Then someone would say "AOC" and the crowd would boo.

A few times speakers said something so wild it stopped me dead in my tracks. Like when Ann Coulter compared Ilhan Omar to Josef Mengele. Or when Dinesh Dsouza said, "To me democratic socialism differs from socialism kind of in the way that gang rape differs from individual rape."

At the networking events, I chatted to students who told me their views havent made them super popular on their college campuses, so it was nice for them to be around like-minded people. One student told me she was too scared to tell her roommates that shes a conservative because she was worried they wouldnt want to be her friends anymore.

The organizers seemed to have made a few attempts to make the conservative messaging more appealing to young people. There were a bunch of selfie stations dotted around, and the Ayn Rand booth had graphic novels and a downloadable emoji keyboard. Sean Hannity was wearing a hoodie.

The talk I saw that seemed to be the most explicitly crafted towards young people was one by disgraced BuzzFeed editor and current TPUSA employee Benny Johnson, who talked about the lefts inability to meme. Johnson came out on stage accompanied by someone dressed as "Left Shark," firing a T-shirt cannon into the crowd and screaming, "Whos ready for some memes?"

"The left can't meme," he said. "We're having more fun than them. We're way funnier. We're more awesome."

On big screens at the side of the stage was a slideshow of conservative memes to underline Johnsons point. The memes included:

More than once, Johnson paused mid sentence because he was laughing at the memes too hard.

"They dont want to speak your language, they dont understand you." Johnson, 32, said. "They dont understand us. The way that we communicate."

Here are some other things I saw while wandering around the event:

Rudy Giuliani

A crowd of excited young conservatives.

A proud author.

Dinesh D'Souza signs a book for a fan.

Christmas Day Open Thread – legal Insurrection

Posted: at 4:43 pm


without comments

What ever happened to Kwanzaa? Its almost like its disappeared from the radar.

Unless Kim Jung Un launches a balllistic missile or does something else dramatic today, its likely to be a slow news day.

So use this post to wish each other well, argue, or post things of interest in the comments. As long as you keep it clean, there is nothing off topic.

Some quick thoughts from me.

We havent published reader-submitted bumper sticker photos in a long time. For a reminder, scroll through our Bumper Sticker Tag,all 58 pages of them dating back to 2010, totaling over 500 in all. Check out Best Bumper Stickers of 2012.It seems that bumper stickers in the anti-Obama era were so much more fun. Anti-Trump bumper stickers lack humor and are just angry. But a small number of readers have sent me images recently. Should we resume?

What ever happened to Kwanzaa? It used to be it was all over the news, now you hardly hear anything about it. Of course, it was a recently invented holiday meant to take away from Christmas. Now that Christmas is *legal* again under Trump, maybe Kwanzaa has lost its purpose.

What are Democrats praying for this Christmas? Heres a partial list, all of which involve some dramatic harm to the U.S. that will hurt Trumps chances of reelection:

1. North Korea: Democrats precarious electoral situation absolutely requires a really futile and stupid gesture be done on somebodys part, and Kim Jung Un may be just the guy to do it. A long-range missile here, a boom there, come on Kim, Democrats need you.

2. The economy, boy theyre stupid: The media tried this year to talk us into a recession. They could taste it and they were salivating. But it didnt happen. Not even close. Guess what? The economy is so strong, it has only once place to go: DOWN!

3. Conflict with Iran: Mullah, Mullah on the wall, what have you got in store to help Democrats win? Sink a tanker? Shoot down another drone. Drag the region into conflict with U.S. troops in the middle of it all? Trump will be blamed by the media, so for Democrats, its all upside.

This meme sums it up.

Thats it from me for the moment.

Merry Christmas to our readers, and even to the commenters.

SOAS to take action against ‘ill-informed’ academic who criticised Stormzy – Middle East Eye

Posted: at 4:43 pm


without comments

London'sSchool of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) has distanced itself from comments made by one of its academics who criticisedStormzy after theGrime artist said Britain had a problem with racism.

Paul Stott, a tutor at the world-leading institution for Middle Eastern affairs at the University of London, asked the rapper to instead say "thank you" to the country that"helpedbring him up".

Stott made the comments after Stormzy, whose real name is Michael Ebenazer Kwadjo Omari Owuo, said people in the UK weren't aware of racism and that it remained "under the skin".

'We fully understand why SOAS staff and students, and the wider community, are deeply concerned about statements such as this being made.'

- SOASUniversity of London

Speaking to Italian newspaper La Repubblica last week, Stormzy said the UK was "definitely" racist when asked if racism was still present in British society.

"It's like: 'Oh no, we're not racist'.But there's a lot of racism in the country,"he said.

"The difficult thing with the UK is, as you said, in Italy it's a clear problem, whereas trying to explain that Britain is a racist country [to a British person] is the most difficult thing ever. They think: 'No, it's not. Stormzy you're successful. Look at London, there's loads of black people.' It's a more difficult case to fight."

A number of news outlets picked up on the rapper's comments and misconstrued what he said to imply that Britain is 100 percent racist.

Stottwas among those who tookoffence and took his view to Twitter.

"If there's one thing the British are rubbish at, it's racism. After Stormzy's dad did a runner, our welfare state helped bring him up. It may not have been perfect, but it was better than what was on offer in Ghana," he tweeted.

The academics remarks drew scorn on social media, namely because Stormzy was born in the UK, not Ghana, and because statics from the Home Office have shown that hate crimes havesurged by at least 123 percent in the last five years, with a large spikereported after the Brexit referendum.

According to the Home Office, there were 103,379 hate crimes recorded in England and Wales between 2018-19, with just under half of all religious hate crime offences targeting Muslims.

Stott, who is also a researcher at the Henry Jackson Society, faced criticism for exceptionalising Stormzy in an attempt to validate his argument.

The Henry Jackson Society is rightwing think-tank, and has faced repeated accusations of pushing an anti-Muslim agenda. Its members have shared the same platform asRichard Spencer, Steve Bannon, Ann Coulter and Milo Yiannopoulos, who are all considered key figures in the "alt-right"American white nationalist movement.

"Although he does not realise it, half the world would swap places with Stormzy in a shot, if they could. If there's one thing we need to hear from this young man in 2020, it is surely thank you Great Britain," Stott said.

REVEALED: How SOAS is facing growing pressure to comply with Prevent

In a statement released on Tuesday, SOASsaid: "These comments certainly do not accord with the values of SOAS as an institution.

"We agree with the criticism that has been expressed that these comments are ill-informed and extremely offensive. We fully understand why SOAS staff and students, and the wider community, are deeply concerned about statements such as this being made.

"SOAS is currently closed for the Christmas period, but we will take this matter up in detail when the school re-opens on 2 January."

Stormzy has been a vocal critic of the Conservative party, and UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson in particular.

His single Vossi Bop contained the line "F**k the government, and f**k Boris", which became the slogan of a campaign aimed at unseating Johnson inthe general election earlier this month.

In the interview with La Republica, Stormzy added that Johnson was a "figurehead"whose actions had made it more acceptable to say racist things.

"If the top person can openly say this racist thing the 'piccaninnies' remarks, 'watermelon smiles', comparing Muslim women to a letter box if that is our figurehead, the top man, the leader we have to follow, and he openly says these things, he encourages hate among others."

ANN COULTER: Article I: Remove this beast from my sight! – MDJOnline.com

Posted: at 9:50 am

In the history of politics, there is no precedent for the medias entire focus to be on undoing the last presidential election.

True, the left has wanted to impeach every Republican president, but at least they used to wait a decent interval between the inauguration and concocting some preposterous impeachable offense.

With Trump, its never been about anything hes done. Its him they cant stand. The technical grounds for their impeachment is: REMOVE THIS MONSTER FROM MY SIGHT!

The left has gone from literally shaking on election night 2016, to literally shaking at Trump firing the FBI director (a.k.a. his employee), to literally shaking at Trump engaging in foreign policy.

On cable news, theyre still talking about Trumps Russia, if youre listening joke.

U.S. media: Proud not to get a joke.

The media pretend the president engaging in standard foreign policy is a big constitutional crisis. It is, but not the way they mean.

As explained in the seminal book on impeachment, High Crimes and Misdemeanors: The Case Against Bill Clinton, impeachment is not for policy disputes. Thats why, in any five-minute span on cable TV, you will hear someone say that James Madison expressly rejected maladministration as a ground for impeachment at the Constitutional Convention. Otherwise, he said, so vague a term would mean the president could serve only at the pleasure of the Senate.

This isnt a random quote, selectively plucked from the convention notes. Its the entire point of our country.

In Great Britain, impeachments were used as a weapon against a king whose veto Parliament could not override. Impeachment was often the only way members of Parliament could express themselves on policy matters. They couldnt block the kings policies, but they could impeach his ministers for giving him bad advice.

As history buffs will recall, we fought a revolution to get rid of the king. No king and Congress has plenty of tools for stymieing a presidents agenda and pushing their own, such as that thing thats completely slipped their minds: enacting legislation.

Moreover, the president, unlike a king, would not govern by divine right, but by the consent of the people. Staging impeachments over policy disagreements is a logical absurdity under our Constitution.

Worse, the Democrats are impeaching Trump over his foreign policy, nearly the exclusive province of the commander in chief.

To be extra clear that they dont care about the Constitution much less the Founding Fathers, whom they keep solemnly invoking the Democrats second article of impeachment against Trump is for obstruction of Congress. That is pretty much his job. How about impeaching a president for ordering a surprise military attack or appointing members of his Cabinet?

The Constitution gives each of the three branches devices to oppose the others. Congress can issue subpoenas, and the president can claim executive privilege. Then a court probably the Supreme Court will decide who wins.

Democrats have spent three years doing nothing but trying to obstruct the president. Theyre indignant, scribbling up articles of impeachment because he refuses to help them obstruct him.

The Supreme Court just took a case that will decide whether Trump can obstruct a House Committee from subpoenaing his financial records. So now its not just the executive branch, but the judicial branch, thats obstructing the almighty, shall-not-be-defied legislative branch. I guess the House will have to impeach the Supreme Court, too.

At least theyre not wasting time passing any laws. That will save us the embarrassment of the House impeaching the president for vetoing a bill.

In an attempt to prove the wide acceptance of their insane ideas about impeachment, the media keep telling us that, as Mike Murphy put it, if it was a secret vote, 30 Republican senators would vote to impeach Trump. (In his defense, Murphy also thought Jeb! was going to be president.)

Murphys non-disprovable smear has been repeated all over by E.J. Dionne at a Brookings Institute forum, on cable news shows, and in several articles in The New York Times just in the last week.

This drop-the-mic charge is one of most cynical and anti-democratic arguments you will ever hear. Its rolled out as if its argument for impeachment, when in fact its an argument against.

The secret vote claim is the precise reason these people should never be anywhere near power not even with a White House tour group. They think a presidential phone call should be broadcast on Netflix, but a senator should only vote in private, like having sexual relations.

Im to vote in full view of the public? Oh, how awful!

Yes, Im quite certain that most politicians would love to do things differently if only they could be rid of the pesky rabble looking over their shoulders. I just didnt think theyd be stupid enough to admit it.

Conspiracy Theory1 day ago Drudge Report has hemorrhaged 28% of its traffic in four months – NOQ Report

Posted: at 10:41 pm


without comments

What was once essentially impossible now seems to be happening right before our eyes. Drudge Report, the news aggregator that dominated the internet for two decades, has been losing traffic for five consecutive monthswith November marking a 28% reduction in traffic in just the last four.

Most attribute the loss of over 27 million monthly visitors since a peak in July to the anti-Trump shift the site has taken. Once a staunch Trump supporter, the sudden shift in narrative has caused speculation that Matt Drudge has quietly sold the site. Further speculation along the same lines points to Chinese, North Korean, or Iranian parties as having taken over the site with a very secretive deal in place, though these rumors are unconfirmed. (Editors Note: As the author states, these are unconfirmed rumors, as in nothing backing them whatsoever. I allowed inclusion of this point only because theres no evidence that theyre not true. Drudge has been acting strangely enough that even though its unlikely, its still plausible.)

During the 2016 election cycle, Drudge Report was an early and unflinching supporter of candidate Trump. All the way until shortly after the election, the front page constantly promoted candidate Trump while dogging on his GOP competitors during the primaries and Hillary Clinton during the general election. But things have changed. The site now highlights negative press and seemingly links only to left-leaning mainstream media publications for takes on anything pertaining to the White House.

One rumor floated is that Drudge has been unhappy with the Presidents inability to build the wall. Conservative commentator Ann Coulter is another former Trump sycophant who turned against the President over illegal immigration. Like Drudge, Coulters influence has been waning in conservative circles. There have been strong Drudge Report alternatives popping up recently to replace Drudge for Trump supporters.

Whatever has gotten into Drudge, its not helping his bottom line (unless the rumors are true and its DEFINITELY helping his bottom line). More importantly, its no longer a benefit for America to have Drudge Report persist with its influence.

Editors Note #2: Of all the conspiracy theories surrounding Drudge, one important note to add anecdotally is that the few times Ive visited the site recently, I havent seen a change in style. This is important to understand because Matt Drudges style has always been unique in the way he handles headlines, picks stories, and roots for the Patriots. Ive always been able to tell when it was him directly versus someone working for him who crafts headlines, and nothing in that regard has changed. I believe Drudge is still in control. He just hates President Trump now for some reason.

We are currently forming the American Conservative Movement. If you are interested in learning more, we will be sending out information in a few weeks.

What too many get wrong about civility – News from southeastern Connecticut – theday.com

Posted: at 10:41 pm


without comments

Civility gets a bad rap these days.

One need look no further than our head of state for confirmation, but it could be argued that Donald Trump is no more capable of civility than he is of humility, justice, good faith, wise counsel or any other virtue we'd wish our leaders to have. The rest of us we can be better.

What disconcerts is that some of the finer minds and political talents of the younger generations in particular but not exclusively have formed a distorted impression about what it means to engage in a civil manner.

If not corrected, that will be the country's loss. Because young adults are often the most passionately bold in their beliefs and possess the conviction and time to lead substantial change, before the obligations careers and family take over their lives.

But people are rejecting the notion of civility. They wrongly believe it's the same thing as meekness, or at best moderation and politeness. That a civil person is docile and genteel to a point of ineffectiveness.

However, its root is the Latin "civilitas," which denotes that which pertains to citizenship, politics and government. This sense needs to be reclaimed, I think, and civility ought to describe the attitudes and comportment that promote our best public values, the constructive aims we hold dear.

Unfortunately, we're seeing more and more behavior that accomplishes the opposite.

Maryland's former governor Martin O'Malley provided a classic example on Thanksgiving eve. He reportedly launched a tirade at Ken Cuccinelli, acting deputy secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, when the two ran into each other in a Washington pub.

O'Malley reportedly challenged Cuccinelli to justify the Trump administration's practice of separating immigrant children at the U.S.-Mexico border and warehousing them in chain-link cages. Fair point and an honest reply certainly would have been illuminating but it was lost amid the drama. At one point, O'Malley asked Cuccinelli if he wanted to throw a punch, according to reporting by the Washington Post.

A few days prior, first lady Melania Trump was jeered and booed by teenagers in Baltimore. The students were reportedly reacting to the president's rude and unprovoked slandering of their city as "a disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess" where "no human being" would want to live. Trump's remarks, in turn, were meant to insult Rep. Elijah Cummings, since deceased, who had criticized Trump.

The heckling carried on for a good portion of the first lady's short speech. The students never settled down while she tried to pitch a message to "be best."

They failed. Their beef is with the president, not the first lady. It would have been far more productive if they'd held signs asking her to press her husband to "be best."

Civility requires that we avoid precisely the behaviors in which Trump indulges: name-calling, slurs and childish derision. However, it doesn't require us to suppress our emotions, even anger.

College campuses, in particular, have become the scenes of the national civility crisis. Groups on the left and right battle it out in a familiar pattern. Right-wing student group invites incendiary right-wing speaker; left-wing students set out to shut it down, by any means necessary. An all-too-typical example is the appearance of conservative writer Ann Coulter at the University of California, Berkeley, in late November. Coulter's the author of, among other books, "Adios America! The Left's Plan to Turn our Country into a Third World Hellhole." The title tells you all you need to know about her and about the intentions of those who invited her. Anyone who seriously wanted to have a productive conversation about immigration even a very pointed and critical one would never invite Coulter as the speaker. She's a provocateur, not an honest scholar or thinker of any discernible public spirit. She's somebody you invite to campus to start a rumble.

And, as expected, more than 2,000 people protested, and there were a handful of arrests. Luckily there was no violence. To the university chancellor's credit, Berkeley had undergone a yearlong dialogue on free speech, including seminars on respectful dialogue, itself a response to campus disturbances over right-wing speakers in 2017.

The point of civility is not to keep the boat steady. Rather, the point is to reprove those who champion error and injustice unsparingly with words in reasoned debate. That can be discomfiting enough! The duty of civility is to articulate the highest and best values in civic life. It doesn't have to be nice, but I'm pretty sure it doesn't involve throwing a punch.

Ann Coulter – Wikipedia

Posted: December 13, 2019 at 6:52 pm

American conservative political commentator

Ann Hart Coulter (; born December 8, 1961)[2] is an American conservative[3][4][5][6]media pundit, author, syndicated columnist, and lawyer.

She became known as a media pundit in the late 1990s, appearing in print and on cable news as an outspoken critic of the Clinton administration. Her first book concerned the Bill Clinton impeachment, and sprang from her experience writing legal briefs for Paula Jones's attorneys, as well as columns she wrote about the cases.[7]

Coulter's syndicated column for Universal Press Syndicate appears in newspapers, and is featured on conservative websites. Coulter has also written 12 best-selling books expressing her political views.

Ann Hart Coulter was born on December 8, 1961, in New York City, to John Vincent Coulter (19262008), an FBI agent from a working class Catholic Irish American and German American family[8] in Albany, New York; and Nell Husbands Coulter (ne Martin; 19282009), an (Anglo-)American native of Paducah, Kentucky.

Coulter's mother's line has been traced back on both sides of her family to a group of Puritan settlers in Plymouth Colony, British America arriving on the Griffin with Thomas Hooker in 1633,[9] and her father's family to Catholic Irish and German immigrants who arrived in America in the 19th century her father's Irish ancestors during the famine[8] and became ship laborers, tilemakers, brickmakers, carpenters and flagmen. Coulter's father attended college on the GI Bill, and would later idolize Joseph McCarthy.[10]

She has two older brothers: James, an accountant,[11] and John, an attorney.[12] Her family later moved to New Canaan, Connecticut, where Coulter and her two older brothers, James and John, were raised.[13]

At age 14, Coulter visited her older brother in New York City, where he attended law school. While he was in class, he had his little sister read books by Milton Friedman and William E. Simon. When he got home from class, he quizzed Coulter. As a reward, he and his friends took her out to bars on the Upper East Side. Reading Republican books made Coulter dream about working as a writer.[14] She graduated from New Canaan High School in 1980.

Coulter's age was disputed in 2002. While she argued that she was not yet 40, The Washington Post columnist Lloyd Grove cited a birthdate of December 8, 1961, which Coulter provided when registering to vote in New Canaan, Connecticut, prior to the 1980 Presidential election, for which she had to be 18 years old to register. A driver's license issued several years later purportedly listed her birthdate as December 8, 1963. Coulter will not confirm either date, citing privacy concerns.[15]

While attending Cornell University, Coulter helped found The Cornell Review,[16] and was a member of the Delta Gamma national sorority.[17] She graduated cum laude from Cornell in 1984 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in history and received her Juris Doctor from the University of Michigan Law School in 1988, where she was an editor of the Michigan Law Review.[18] At Michigan, Coulter was president of the local chapter of the Federalist Society and was trained at the National Journalism Center.[19]

After law school, Coulter served as a law clerk, in Kansas City, for Pasco BowmanII of the United States Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit.[20] After a short time working in New York City in private practice, where she specialized in corporate law, Coulter left to work for the United States Senate Judiciary Committee after the Republican Party took control of Congress in 1994. She handled crime and immigration issues for Senator Spencer Abraham of Michigan and helped craft legislation designed to expedite the deportation of aliens convicted of felonies.[21] She later became a litigator with the Center for Individual Rights.[22]

Coulter has written 12 books, and also publishes a syndicated newspaper column. She is particularly known for her polemical style,[23] and describes herself as someone who likes to "stir up the pot. I don't pretend to be impartial or balanced, as broadcasters do".[24] She idolizedClare Boothe Luce for her satirical style.[25] She also makes numerous public appearances, speaking on television and radio talk shows, as well as on college campuses, receiving both praise and protest. Coulter typically spends 612 weeks of the year on speaking engagement tours, and more when she has a book coming out.[26] In 2010, she made an estimated $500,000 on the speaking circuit, giving speeches on topics of modern conservatism, gay marriage, and what she describes as the hypocrisy of modern American liberalism.[27] During one appearance at the University of Arizona, a pie was thrown at her.[28][29][30] Coulter has, on occasion, in defense of her ideas, responded with inflammatory remarks toward hecklers and protestors who attend her speeches.[31][32]

Coulter is the author of twelve books, including many that have appeared on The New York Times Best Seller list, with a combined 3 million copies sold as of May2009[update].[33]

Coulter's first book, High Crimes and Misdemeanors: The Case Against Bill Clinton, was published by Regnery Publishing in 1998 and made the New York Times Bestseller list.[7] It details Coulter's case for the impeachment of President Bill Clinton.

Her second book, Slander: Liberal Lies About the American Right, published by Crown Forum in 2002, reached the number one spot on The New York Times non-fiction best seller list.[34] In Slander, Coulter argues that President George W. Bush was given unfair negative media coverage. The factual accuracy of Slander was called into question by then-comedian and author, later Democratic U.S. Senator from Minnesota, Al Franken; he also accused her of citing passages out of context.[35] Others investigated these charges, and also raised questions about the book's accuracy and presentation of facts.[36][37] Coulter responded to criticisms in a column called "Answering My Critics".[38]

In her third book, Treason: Liberal Treachery from the Cold War to the War on Terrorism, also published by Crown Forum, she reexamines the 60-year history of the Cold Warincluding the career of Senator Joseph McCarthy, the Whittaker Chambers-Alger Hiss affair, and Ronald Reagan's challenge to Mikhail Gorbachev to "tear down this wall"and argues that liberals were wrong in their Cold War political analyses and policy decisions, and that McCarthy was correct about Soviet agents working for the U.S. government.[39] She also argues that the correct identification of Annie Lee Moss, among others, as communists was misreported by the liberal media.[40]Treason was published in 2003, and spent 13 weeks on the Best Seller list.[41]

Crown Forum published a collection of Coulter's columns in 2004 as her fourth book, How to Talk to a Liberal (If You Must): The World According to Ann Coulter.[42]

Coulter's fifth book, published by Crown Forum in 2006, is Godless: The Church of Liberalism.[43] In it, she argues, first, that American liberalism rejects the idea of God and reviles people of faith, and second, that it bears all the attributes of a religion itself.[44]Godless debuted at number one on the New York Times Best Seller list.[45] Some passages in the book match portions of others' writings published at an earlier time (including newspaper articles and a Planned Parenthood document), leading John Barrie of iThenticate to assert that Coulter had engaged in "textbook plagiarism".[46]

Coulter's If Democrats Had Any Brains, They'd Be Republicans (Crown Forum), published in October 2007, and Guilty: Liberal "Victims" and Their Assault on America (Crown Forum), published on January 6, 2009, both also achieved best-seller status.[47]

On June 7, 2011, Crown Forum published her eighth book Demonic: How the Liberal Mob Is Endangering America.[citation needed]

Her ninth book, published September 25, 2012, is Mugged: Racial Demagoguery from the Seventies to Obama. It argues that liberals, and Democrats in particular, have taken undue credit for racial civil rights in America.[48]

Coulter's tenth book, Never Trust a Liberal Over 3 Especially a Republican, was released October 14, 2013. It is her second collection of columns and her first published by Regnery since her first book, High Crimes and Misdemeanors.[49] Coulter published her eleventh book, Adios, America: The Left's Plan to Turn Our Country Into a Third World Hellhole on June 1, 2015. The book addresses illegal immigration, amnesty programs, and border security in the United States.[50]

In the late 1990s, Coulter's weekly (biweekly from 19992000) syndicated column for Universal Press Syndicate began appearing. Her column is featured on six conservative websites: Human Events Online, WorldNetDaily, Townhall.com, VDARE, FrontPage Magazine, Jewish World Review and her own website. Her syndicator says, "Ann's client newspapers stick with her because she has a loyal fan base of conservative readers who look forward to reading her columns in their local newspapers".[51]

In 1999, Coulter worked as a columnist for George magazine.[52][53] Coulter also wrote weekly columns for the conservative magazine Human Events between 1998 and 2003, with occasional columns thereafter. In her columns, she discussed judicial rulings, constitutional issues, and legal matters affecting Congress and the executive branch.[54]

In 2001, as a contributing editor and syndicated columnist for National Review Online (NRO), Coulter was asked by editors to make changes to a piece written after the September 11 attacks. On the show Politically Incorrect, Coulter accused NRO of censorship and said she was paid $5 per article. NRO dropped her column and terminated her editorship. Editor-at-large of NRO, Jonah Goldberg said: "We did not 'fire' Ann for what she wrote... we ended the relationship because she behaved with a total lack of professionalism, friendship, and loyalty [concerning the editing disagreement]."[55]

In August 2005, the Arizona Daily Star dropped Coulter's syndicated column, citing reader complaints: "Many readers find her shrill, bombastic, and mean-spirited. And those are the words used by readers who identified themselves as conservatives".[56]

In July 2006, some newspapers replaced Coulter's column with those of other conservative columnists following the publication of her fourth book, Godless: The Church of Liberalism.[57] After The Augusta Chronicle dropped her column, newspaper editor Michael Ryan said: "it came to the point where she was the issue rather than what she was writing about."[58] Ryan added that he continued himself "to be an Ann Coulter fan" as "her logic is devastating and her viewpoint is right most of the time."[58]

Coulter made her first national media appearance in 1996 after she was hired by the then-fledgling network MSNBC as a legal correspondent. She later appeared on CNN and Fox News.[59] Coulter went on to make frequent guest appearances on many television and radio talk shows.

Coulter appeared in three films released during 2004. The first was Feeding the Beast, a made-for-television documentary on the "24-Hour News Revolution".[60] The other two films were FahrenHYPE 9/11, a direct-to-video documentary rebuttal of Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 911, and Is It True What They Say About Ann?, a documentary on Coulter containing clips of interviews and speeches.[61] In 2015, Coulter had a cameo as the Vice President in the made-for-TV movie Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!

Coulter is a Christian and belongs to the Presbyterian denomination.[62] She is a conservative columnist and has described herself as a "typical, immodest-dressing, swarthy male-loving, friend-to-homosexuals, ultra-conservative."[63] She is a registered Republican and former member of the advisory council of GOProud since August 9, 2011.[64]

She supports the display of the Confederate flag.[65] She came to the defense of Milo Yiannopoulos, of whom she is a friend, for his comments defending pederasty.[66]

Coulter believes Roe v. Wade should be overturned and left to the states. She is anti-abortion, but believes there should be an exception if a woman is raped.[67] However, in 2015, she prioritized the issue of immigration, stating: "I don't care if [Trump] wants to perform abortions in the White House after this immigration policy paper".[68]

Coulter was raised by a Catholic father and Protestant mother.[69] At one public lecture she said: "I don't care about anything else; Christ died for my sins, and nothing else matters."[70] She summarized her view of Christianity in a 2004 column, saying, "Jesus' distinctive message was: People are sinful and need to be redeemed, and this is your lucky day, because I'm here to redeem you even though you don't deserve it, and I have to get the crap kicked out of me to do it." She then mocked "the message of Jesus... according to liberals", summarizing it as "something along the lines of 'be nice to people'", which, in turn, she said "is, in fact, one of the incidental tenets of Christianity."[71]

Confronting some critics' views that her content and style of writing is unchristian,[72] Coulter said that she is "a Christian first and a mean-spirited, bigoted conservative second, and don't you ever forget it."[73] She also said: "Christianity fuels everything I write. Being a Christian means that I am called upon to do battle against lies, injustice, cruelty, hypocrisyyou know, all the virtues in the church of liberalism".[74] In Godless: The Church of Liberalism, Coulter characterized the theory of evolution as bogus science, and contrasted her beliefs to what she called the left's "obsession with Darwinism and the Darwinian view of the world, which replaces sanctification of life with sanctification of sex and death".[75] Coulter subscribes to intelligent design, an antievolution ideology.[76]

Coulter endorsed the period of NSA warrantless surveillance from 2001 to 2007.[77] During a 2011 appearance on Stossel, she said "PATRIOT Act, fantastic, Gitmo, fantastic, waterboarding, not bad, though torture would've been better."[78] She criticized Rand Paul for "this anti-drone stuff".[79]

Coulter opposes hate crime laws, calling them "unconstitutional". She also stated that "Hate-crime provisions seem vaguely directed at capturing a sense of cold-bloodedness, but the law can do that without elevating some victims over others."[80]

Coulter has criticized former president George W. Bush's immigration proposals, saying they led to "amnesty". In a 2007 column, she claimed that the current immigration system was set up to deliberately reduce the percentage of whites in the population. In it, she said:[81]

In 1960, whites were 90 percent of the country. The Census Bureau recently estimated that whites already account for less than two-thirds of the population and will be a minority by 2050. Other estimates put that day much sooner.

One may assume the new majority will not be such compassionate overlords as the white majority has been. If this sort of drastic change were legally imposed on any group other than white Americans, it would be called genocide. Yet whites are called racists merely for mentioning the fact that current immigration law is intentionally designed to reduce their percentage in the population.

Coulter strongly opposes the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965.[82] Regarding illegal immigration, she strongly opposed amnesty for undocumented immigrants, and at the 2013 CPAC said she has now become "a single-issue voter against amnesty".[83]

In June 2018, during the controversy caused by the Trump administration family separation policy, Coulter dismissed immigrant children as "child actors weeping and crying" and urged Trump not to "fall for it".[84]

Coulter opposes same-sex marriage, opposes Obergefell v. Hodges, and supports federal U.S. constitutional amendment defining marriage as a union of one man and one woman.[85][86] She insists that her opposition to same-sex marriage "wasn't an anti-gay thing" and that "It's genuinely a pro-marriage position to oppose gay marriage".[87] In an April 1, 2015, column, Coulter declared that liberals had "won the war on gay marriage (by judicial fiat)".[88]

Coulter also opposes civil unions[89] and privatizing marriage.[90] When addressed with the issue of rights granted by marriage, she said, "Gays already can visit loved ones in hospitals. They can also visit neighbors, random acquaintances, and total strangers in hospitalsjust like everyone else. Gays can also pass on property to whomever they would like".[91] She also stated that same-sex sexual intercourse was already protected under the Fourth Amendment, which prevents police from going into your home without a search warrant or court order.[92]

In regard to Romer v. Evans, in which the United Supreme Court overturned Article II, Section 30b of the Colorado Constitution, which prohibited the "State of Colorado, through any of its branches or departments, nor any of its agencies, political subdivisions, municipalities or school districts, shall enact, adopt or enforce any statute, regulation, ordinance or policy whereby homosexual, lesbian or bisexual orientation, conduct, practices or relationships shall constitute or otherwise be the basis of or entitle any person or class of persons to have or claim any minority status, quota preferences, protected status or claim of discrimination.", Coulter described the ruling as "they couldn't refuse to give affirmative action benefits to people who have sodomy".[93][94] She also disagreed with repealing Don't Ask Don't Tell, stating that it is not an "anti-gay position; it is a pro-military position" because "sexual bonds are disruptive to the military bond".[95] She also stated that there is "no proof that all the discharges for homosexuality involve actual homosexuals."[96] On April 1, 2015, in a column, she expressed support for Indiana's Religious Freedom Restoration Act and said it was an "apocryphal" assertion to claim the Religious Freedom Restoration Act would be used to discriminate against LGBT people.[88] She expressed her support for the Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission ruling.[97]

Coulter has expressed her opposition to treatment of LGBT people in the countries of Cuba, People's Republic of China, and Saudi Arabia.[98][99] Coulter opposes publicly funded sex reassignment surgery. She supports the Public Facilities Privacy & Security Act and opposes transgender individuals using bathrooms corresponding to their gender identity.[101][102] She says her opposition to bathroom usage corresponding to gender identity has nothing to do with transgender people, but cisgendered "child molesters" who "now has the right to go into that bathroom."[103] She supports banning transgender military service personnel from the United States military.[102]

Since the 1990s, Coulter has had many acquaintances in the LGBT community. She considers herself "the Judy Garland of the Right", reflecting Garland's large fan base from the gay community. In the last few years,[vague] she has attracted many LGBT fans, namely gay men and drag queens.[14][104]

At the 2007 CPAC, Coulter said, "I do want to point out one thing that has been driving me crazy with the mediahow they keep describing Mitt Romney's position as being pro-gays, and that's going to upset the right wingers", and "Well, you know, screw you! I'm not anti-gay. We're against gay marriage. I don't want gays to be discriminated against." She added, "I don't know why all gays aren't Republican. I think we have the pro-gay positions, which is anti-crime and for tax cuts. Gays make a lot of money and they're victims of crime. No, they are! They should be with us."[105]

In Coulter's 2007 book If Democrats Had Any Brains, They'd Be Republicans, in the chapter "Gays: No Gay Left Behind!", she argued that Republican policies were more pro-gay than Democratic policies. Coulter attended the 2010 HomoCon of GOProud, where she commented that same-sex marriage "is not a civil right".[106] On February 9, 2011, in a column, she described the national Log Cabin Republicans as "ridiculous" and "not conservative at all". She did however describe the Texas branch of Log Cabin Republicans, for whom she's been signing books for years, as "comprised of real conservatives".[107]

At the 2011 CPAC, during her question-and-answer segment, Coulter was asked about GOProud and the controversy over their inclusion at the 2011 CPAC. She boasted how she talked GOProud into dropping its support for same-sex marriage in the party's platform, saying, "The left is trying to co-opt gays, and I don't think we should let them. I think they should be on our side", and "Gays are natural conservatives".[108] Later that year, she joined advisory board for GOProud. On Logos The A-List: Dallas she told gay Republican Taylor Garrett that "The gays have got to be pro-life", and "As soon as they find the gay gene, guess who the liberal yuppies are gonna start aborting?"[109]

Coulter initially supported George W. Bush's presidency, but later criticized its approach to immigration. She endorsed Duncan Hunter[110] and later Mitt Romney in the 2008 Republican presidential primary[111] and the 2012 Republican presidential primary and presidential run.[112] In the 2016 Republican Party presidential primaries, she endorsed Donald Trump.[113] Since his election, Coulter has distanced herself from Trump following arguments over immigration policies, calling for his impeachment on September 14, 2017, and saying "Put a form in Trump, he's dead".[114] She now describes herself as a "former Trumper".[115]

Other candidates Coulter has endorsed include Greg Brannon, 2014 Republican primary candidate for North Carolinia Senator,[116]Paul Nehlen, 2016 Republican primary candidate for Wisconsin's 1st congressional district in the United States House of Representatives,[117]Mo Brooks, 2017 Republican primary candidate for Alabama Senator, and Roy Moore, 2017 Republican candidate for Alabama Senator.[118]

Coulter strongly supports continuing the War on Drugs.[119] However, she has said that, if there were not a welfare state, she "wouldn't care" if drugs were legal.[120] She spoke about drugs as a guest on Piers Morgan Live, when she said that marijuana users "can't perform daily functions".[121]

Coulter is an advocate of the white genocide conspiracy theory.[122][123][124] She has compared non-white immigration into the United States with genocide,[125] and claiming that "a genocide" is occurring against South African farmers,[126] she has said that the Boers are the "only real refugees" in South Africa.[127][128] Regarding domestic politics, Vox labelled Coulter as one of many providing a voice for "the 'white genocide' myth",[129] and the SPLC covered Coulter's remarks that if the demographic changes occurring in the U.S. were being "legally imposed on any group other than white Americans, it would be called genocide".[130][81]

In April 2019, Coulter said of Senator Bernie Sanders she would vote and perhaps even work for him in the 2020 U.S. presidential election if he stuck to his original position on U.S. border policy. If he went back to his original position, which is the pro blue-collar positionI mean, it totally makes sense with him, and If he went back to that position, I'd vote for him, I might work for him. I don't care about the rest of the socialist stuff. Just, can we do something for ordinary Americans?".[131][132]

Ann Coulter has described herself as a "polemicist" who likes to "stir up the pot" and does not "pretend to be impartial or balanced, as broadcasters do".[133] While her political activities in the past have included advising a plaintiff suing President Bill Clinton as well as considering a run for Congress, she mostly serves as a political pundit, sometimes creating controversy ranging from rowdy uprisings at some of the colleges where she speaks to protracted discussions in the media.

Time magazine's John Cloud once observed that Coulter "likes to shock reporters by wondering aloud whether America might be better off if women lost the right to vote".[59] This was in reference to her statement that "it would be a much better country if women did not vote. That is simply a fact. In fact, in every presidential election since 1950except Goldwater in '64the Republican would have won, if only the men had voted."[134] Similarly, in an October 2007 interview with the New York Observer, Coulter said:[135]

If we took away women's right to vote, we'd never have to worry about another Democrat president. It's kind of a pipe dream, it's a personal fantasy of mine, but I don't think it's going to happen. And it is a good way of making the point that women are voting so stupidly, at least single women.

It also makes the point, it is kind of embarrassing, the Democratic Party ought to be hanging its head in shame, that it has so much difficulty getting men to vote for it. I mean, you do see it's the party of women and 'We'll pay for health care and tuition and day careand here, what else can we give you, soccer moms?'

In addition to questioning whether women's right to vote is a good thing, Coulter has also appeared on Fox News and advocated for a poll tax and a literacy test for voters (this was in 1999, and she reiterated her support of a literacy test in 2015).[136] This is not a viewpoint widely shared by members of the Republican Party.

Coulter first became a public figure shortly before becoming an unpaid legal adviser for the attorneys representing Paula Jones in her sexual harassment suit against President Bill Clinton. Coulter's friend George Conway had been asked to assist Jones' attorneys, and shortly afterward Coulter, who wrote a column about the Paula Jones case for Human Events, was also asked to help, and she began writing legal briefs for the case.

Coulter later stated that she would come to mistrust the motives of Jones' head lawyer, Joseph Cammaratta, who by August or September 1997 was advising Jones that her case was weak and to settle, if a favorable settlement could be negotiated.[21][137] From the outset, Jones had sought an apology from Clinton at least as eagerly as she sought a settlement.[138] However, in a later interview Coulter recounted that she herself had believed that the case was strong, that Jones was telling the truth, that Clinton should be held publicly accountable for his misconduct, and that a settlement would give the impression that Jones was merely interested in extorting money from the President.[21]

David Daley, who wrote the interview piece for The Hartford Courant recounted what followed:

Coulter played one particularly key role in keeping the Jones case alive. In Newsweek reporter Michael Isikoff's new book Uncovering Clinton: A Reporter's Story, Coulter is unmasked as the one who leaked word of Clinton's "distinguishing characteristic"his reportedly bent penis that Jones said she could recognize and describeto the news media. Her hope was to foster mistrust between the Clinton and Jones camps and forestall a settlement ... I thought if I leaked the distinguishing characteristic it would show bad faith in negotiations. [Clinton lawyer] Bob Bennett would think Jones had leaked it. Cammaratta would know he himself hadn't leaked it and would get mad at Bennett. It might stall negotiations enough for me to get through to [Jones adviser] Susan Carpenter-McMillan to tell her that I thought settling would hurt Paula, that this would ruin her reputation, and that there were other lawyers working for her. Then 36 hours later, she returned my phone call. I just wanted to help Paula. I really think Paula Jones is a hero. I don't think I could have taken the abuse she came under. She's this poor little country girl and she has the most powerful man she's ever met hitting on her sexually, then denying it and smearing her as president. And she never did anything tacky. It's not like she was going on TV or trying to make a buck out of it."[21]

In his book, Isikoff also reported Coulter as saying: "We were terrified that Jones would settle. It was contrary to our purpose of bringing down the President."[137] After the book came out, Coulter clarified her stated motives, saying:

The only motive for leaking the distinguishing characteristic item that [Isikoff] gives in his book is my self-parodying remark that "it would humiliate the president" and that a settlement would foil our efforts to bring down the president ... I suppose you could take the position, as [Isikoff] does, that we were working for Jones because we thought Clinton was a lecherous, lying scumbag, but this argument gets a bit circular. You could also say that Juanita Broaddrick's secret motive in accusing Clinton of rape is that she hates Clinton because he raped her. The whole reason we didn't much like Clinton was that we could see he was the sort of man who would haul a low-level government employee like Paula to his hotel room, drop his pants, and say, "Kiss it." You know: Everything his defense said about him at the impeachment trial. It's not like we secretly disliked Clinton because of his administration's position on California's citrus cartels or something, and then set to work on some crazy scheme to destroy him using a pathological intern as our Mata Hari.[139]

The case went to court after Jones broke with Coulter and her original legal team, and it was dismissed via summary judgment. The judge ruled that even if her allegations proved true, Jones did not show that she had suffered any damages, stating, "... plaintiff has not demonstrated any tangible job detriment or adverse employment action for her refusal to submit to the governor's alleged advances. The president is therefore entitled to summary judgment on plaintiff's claim of quid pro quo sexual harassment." The ruling was appealed by Jones' lawyers. During the pendency of the appeal, Clinton settled with Jones for $850,000 ($151,000 after legal fees) in November 1998, in exchange for Jones' dismissal of the appeal. By then, the Jones lawsuit had given way to the Monica Lewinsky sex scandal.

In October 2000, Jones revealed that she would pose for nude pictures in an adult magazine, saying she wanted to use the money to pay taxes and support her grade-school-aged children, in particular saying, "I'm wanting to put them through college and maybe set up a college fund."[140] Coulter publicly denounced Jones, calling her "the trailer-park trash they said she was" (Coulter had earlier chastened Clinton supporters for calling Jones this name),[141] after Clinton's former campaign strategist James Carville had made the widely reported remark, "Drag a $100 bill through a trailer park, and you'll never know what you'll find", and called Jones a "fraud, at least to the extent of pretending to be an honorable and moral person".[140]

Coulter wrote:

Paula surely was given more than a million dollars in free legal assistance from an array of legal talent she will never again encounter in her life, much less have busily working on her behalf. Some of those lawyers never asked for or received a dime for hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal work performed at great professional, financial and personal cost to themselves. Others got partial payments out of the settlement. But at least they got her reputation back. And now she's thrown it away.[142]

Jones claimed not to have been offered any help with a book deal of her own or any other additional financial help after the lawsuit.[140]

On September 14, 2001, three days after the September 11 attacks (in which her friend Barbara Olson had been killed), Coulter wrote in her column:

Airports scrupulously apply the same laughably ineffective airport harassment to Suzy Chapstick as to Muslim hijackers. It is preposterous to assume every passenger is a potential crazed homicidal maniac. We know who the homicidal maniacs are. They are the ones cheering and dancing right now. We should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity. We weren't punctilious about locating and punishing only Hitler and his top officers. We carpet-bombed German cities; we killed civilians. That's war. And this is war.[143]

This comment resulted in Coulter's being fired as a columnist by the National Review, which she subsequently referred to as "squeamish girly-boys".[144] Responding to this comment, Ibrahim Hooper of the Council on American-Islamic Relations remarked in the Chicago Sun-Times that before September 11, Coulter "would have faced swift repudiation from her colleagues", but "now it's accepted as legitimate commentary".[145]

One day after the attacks (when death toll estimates were higher than later), Coulter asserted that only Muslims could have been behind the attacks:

Not all Muslims may be terrorists, but all terrorists are Muslimsat least all terrorists capable of assembling a murderous plot against America that leaves 7,000 people dead in under two hours.[146]

Coulter was highly critical in 2002 of the U.S. Department of Transportation and especially its then-secretary Norman Mineta. Her many criticisms include their refusal to use racial profiling as a component of airport screening.[147] After a group of Muslims was expelled from a US Airways flight when other passengers expressed concern, sparking a call for Muslims to boycott the airline because of the ejection from a flight of six imams, Coulter wrote:

If only we could get Muslims to boycott all airlines, we could dispense with airport security altogether.[148]

Coulter also cited the 2002 Senate testimony of FBI whistleblower Coleen Rowley, who was acclaimed for condemning her superiors for refusing to authorize a search warrant for 9-11 conspirator Zacarias Moussaoui when he refused to consent to a search of his computer. They knew that he was a Muslim in flight school who had overstayed his visa, and the French Intelligence Service had confirmed his affiliations with radical fundamentalist Islamic groups. Coulter said she agreed that probable cause existed in the case, but that refusing consent, being in flight school and overstaying a visa should not constitute grounds for a search. Citing a poll which found that 98 percent of Muslims between the ages of 20 and 45 said they would not fight for Britain in the war in Afghanistan, and that 48 percent said they would fight for Osama bin Laden she asserted "any Muslim who has attended a mosque in Europecertainly in England, where Moussaoui livedhas had 'affiliations with radical fundamentalist Islamic groups,'" so that she parsed Rowley's position as meaning that "'probable cause' existed to search Moussaoui's computer because he was a Muslim who had lived in England". Coulter says the poll was "by The Daily Telegraph", actually it was by Sunrise, an "Asian" (therefore an Indian subcontinent-oriented) radio station, canvassing the opinions of 500 Muslims in Greater London (not Britain as a whole), mainly of Pakistani origin and aged between 20 and 45. Because "FBI headquarters ... refused to engage in racial profiling", they failed to uncover the 9-11 plot, Coulter asserted. "The FBI allowed thousands of Americans to be slaughtered on the altar of political correctness. What more do liberals want?"[149]

Coulter wrote in another column that she had reviewed the civil rights lawsuits against certain airlines to determine which of them had subjected Arabs to the most "egregious discrimination" so that she could fly only that airline. She also said that the airline should be bragging instead of denying any of the charges of discrimination brought against them.[150] In an interview with The Guardian she said, "I think airlines ought to start advertising: 'We have the most civil rights lawsuits brought against us by Arabs.'" When the interviewer, Jonathan Freedland, replied by asking what Muslims would do for travel, she responded, "They could use flying carpets."[134]

In the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings, Coulter told Hannity host Sean Hannity that the wife of bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev should be jailed for wearing a hijab. Coulter continued by saying "Assimilating immigrants into our culture isn't really working. They're assimilating us into their culture." (Tsarnaev's wife was American-born.)[151]

In March 2013, Coulter was one of the keynote speakers at the Conservative Political Action Conference, where she made references to New Jersey Governor Chris Christie's weight ("CPAC had to cut back on its speakers this year about 300 pounds") and progressive activist Sandra Fluke's hairdo. (Coulter quipped that Fluke didn't need birth control pills because "that haircut is birth control enough".) Coulter advocated against a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants because such new citizens would never vote for Republican candidates: "If amnesty goes through, America becomes California and no Republican will ever win another election."[152][153]

Coulter has been a contributor to VDARE since 2006, a right wing website and blog founded by anti-immigration activist and paleo-conservative Peter Brimelow. VDARE is considered controversial because of its alleged ties to white supremacist rhetoric and support of scientific racism and white nationalism.[154]

Coulter was accused of anti-semitism in an October 8, 2007, interview with Donny Deutsch on The Big Idea. During the interview, Coulter stated that the United States is a Christian nation, and said that she wants "Jews to be perfected, as they say" (referring to them being converted to Christianity).[155] Deutsch, a practicing Jew, implied that this was an anti-semitic remark, but Coulter said she didn't consider it to be a hateful comment.[156][157] Coulter's comments on the show were condemned by the Anti-Defamation League, American Jewish Committee and Bradley Burston,[158] and the National Jewish Democratic Council asked media outlets to cease inviting Coulter as a guest commentator.[159] Talk show host Dennis Prager, while disagreeing with her comments, said that they were not "anti-semitic", noting, "There is nothing in what Ann Coulter said to a Jewish interviewer on CNBC that indicates she hates Jews or wishes them ill, or does damage to the Jewish people or the Jewish state. And if none of those criteria is present, how can someone be labeled anti-Semitic?"[160][161][162] Conservative activist David Horowitz also defended Coulter against the allegation.[163]

Coulter in September 2015 tweeted in response to multiple Republican candidates' references to Israel during a Presidential debate, "How many fing Jews do these people think there are in the United States?"[164] The Anti-Defamation League referred to the tweets as "ugly, spiteful and anti-Semitic".[165] In response to accusations of anti-Semitism, she tweeted "I like the Jews, I like fetuses, I like Reagan. Didn't need to hear applause lines about them all night."[164]

In October 2001, Coulter was accused of plagiarism in her 1998 book High Crimes and Misdemeanors by Michael Chapman, a columnist for the journal Human Events who claims that passages were taken from a supplement he wrote for the journal in 1997 titled "A Case for Impeachment".[144]

On the July 5, 2006, episode of Countdown with Keith Olbermann on MSNBC, guest John Barrie, the CEO of iParadigms, offered his professional opinion that Coulter plagiarized in her book Godless as well as in her columns over the previous year.[166] Barrie ran "Godless" through iThenticate, his company's machine which is able to scan works and compare them to existing texts. He points to a 25 word section of the text that exactly matches a Planned Parenthood pamphlet and a 33 word section almost duplicating a 1999 article from the Portland Press as some examples of evidence.[166]

Media Matters for America has appealed to Random House publishing to further investigate Coulter's work.[167] The syndicator of her columns cleared her of the plagiarism charges.[168] Universal Press Syndicate and Crown Books also defended Coulter against the charges.[169] Columnist Bill Nemitz from the Portland Press Herald accused Coulter of plagiarizing a very specific sentence from his newspaper in her book Godless, but he also acknowledged that one sentence is insufficient grounds for filing suit.[170]

Coulter rejects "the academic convention of euphemism and circumlocution",[171] and is claimed to play to misogyny in order to further her goals; she "dominates without threatening (at least not straight men)".[172] Feminist critics also reject Coulter's opinion that the gains made by women have gone so far as to create an anti-male society[173] and her call for women to be rejected from the military because they are more vicious than men.[174] Like the late anti-feminist Phyllis Schlafly, Coulter uses traditionally masculine rhetoric as reasoning for the need for traditional gender roles, and she carries this idea of feminized dependency into her governmental policies, according to feminist critics.[175]

Coulter has been engaged several times, but she has never married and has no children.[31] She has dated Spin founder and publisher Bob Guccione Jr.[52] and conservative writer Dinesh D'Souza.[176] In October 2007, she began dating Andrew Stein, the former president of the New York City Council, a liberal Democrat. When asked about the relationship, Stein told the New York Post, "She's attacked a lot of my friends, but what can I say, opposites attract!"[177] On January 7, 2008, however, Stein told the New York Post that the relationship was over, citing irreconcilable differences.[178]Kellyanne Conway, who refers to Coulter as a friend, told New York magazine in 2017 that Coulter "started dating her security guard probably ten years ago because she couldn't see anybody else".[179]

Coulter owns a house, bought in 2005, in Palm Beach, Florida, a condominium in Manhattan, and an apartment in Los Angeles. She votes in Palm Beach and is not registered to do so in New York or California.[180] She is a fan of several jam bands, such as the Grateful Dead, the Dave Matthews Band, and Phish.[181][182] Some of her favorite books include the Bible, Mere Christianity, Wuthering Heights, Anna Karenina, true crime stories about serial killers, and anything by Dave Barry.[183]
