Ann Coulter is many things, but the type of woman to mince words she is not. Having accused the Democratic party of being populated by traitors, liars, godless heathens, brainless half-wits, criminals masquerading as victims, and (most recently) people with the mindset of demons, one would not expect Coulter to look on the recent behavior by the Democratic party with anything but contempt.
Nor does she. In fact, in a segment with Fox News's Megyn Kelly, Coulter made the extent of her contempt for the Obama-era Democratic party excruciatingly clear, describing their behavior as "mob-like" and determined to use deceptive imagery to mask their actual beliefs. Coulter's appearance, via Mediaite:
"Any criticism of a Democratic policy is considered a personal attack,” Coulter explains in reaction to a clip of Chris Matthews accusing the President's opponents of birtherism. "Welfare and food stamps are policies Obama has. He altered the 1996 welfare reform which was the requirement of work."
Coulter then proceeds to use this example of Mitt Romney's recent attack on the President for undermining the welfare-to-work requirement to show the degree to which Democrats are uncomfortable with attacks on their policies: "
"They have jettisoned the work requirement. That’s what Democrats call a below-the-belt ad while Biden is saying Republicans want to put black people back in chains? That’s supposed to be comparable? ...Republicans are terrified people won’t understand what they are saying. Democrats are terrified people will understand what they are saying. That’s why they talk in images and myths and slogans. And that works on a crowd."
After repeating again that Democrats are "mob like," Coulter goes for the jugular, describing the Left as intrinsically the party of violence.
"All of the violence, the raids, the storming the barricades, the people standing outside peoples' homes, that all comes from the Left," she says.
Strong words, but one would - and should - expect nothing less from Ms. Coulter.
