The demon is a mob, and the mob is demonic. The Democratic Party activates mobs, depends on mobs, coddles mobs, publicizes and celebrates 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.
 
In her most provocative book to date, Ann Coulter argues that liberals exhibit all the psychological characteristics of a mob, for instance:
 
Liberal Groupthink: “The same mob mentality that leads otherwise law-abiding people to hurl rocks at cops also leads otherwise intelligent people to refuse to believe anything they haven’t heard on NPR.” 

Liberal Schemes:“No matter how mad the plan is—Fraternité, the ‘New Soviet Man,’ the Master Race, the Great Leap Forward, the Cultural Revolution, Building a New Society, ObamaCare—a mob will believe it.” 

Liberal Enemies:“Instead of ‘counterrevolutionaries,’ liberals’ opponents are called ‘haters,’ ‘those who seek to divide us,’ ‘tea baggers,’ and ‘right-wing hate groups.’ Meanwhile, conservatives call liberals ‘liberals’—and that makes them testy.” 

Liberal Justice:“In the world of the liberal, as in the world of Robespierre, there are no crimes, only criminals.”

Liberal Violence:“If Charles Manson’s followers hadn’t killed Roman Polanski’s wife, Sharon Tate, Clinton would have pardoned him, too, and he’d probably be teaching at Northwestern University.”
 
Citing the father of mob psychology, Gustave Le Bon, Coulter catalogs the Left’s mob behaviors: the creation of messiahs, the fear of scientific innovation, the mythmaking, the preference for images over words, the lack of morals, and the casual embrace of contradictory ideas. 

Coulter traces the history of the liberal mob to the French Revolution and Robespierre’s revolutionaries (delineating a clear distinction from America’s founding fathers), who simply proclaimed that they were exercising the “general will” before slaughtering their fellow citizens “for the good of mankind.” 

Similarly, as Coulter demonstrates, liberal mobs, from student radicals to white-trash racists to anti-war and pro-ObamaCare fanatics today, have consistently used violence to implement their idea of the “general will.” 

This is not the American tradition; it is the tradition of Stalin, of Hitler, of the guillotine—and the tradition of the American Left. 

As the heirs of the French Revolution, Democrats have a history that consists of pandering to mobs, time and again, while Republicans, heirs to the American Revolution, have regularly stood for peaceable order. 

Hoping to muddy this horrifying truth, liberals slanderously accuse conservatives of their own crimes—assassination plots, conspiracy theorizing, political violence, embrace of the Ku Klux Klan. Coulter shows that the truth is the opposite: Political violence—mob violence—is always a Democratic affair. 

Surveying two centuries of mob movements, Coulter demonstrates that the mob is always destructive. And yet, she argues, beginning with the civil rights movement in the sixties, Americans have lost their natural, inherited aversion to mobs. Indeed, most Americans have no idea what they are even dealing with. 
 
Only by recognizing the mobs and their demonic nature can America begin to defend itself.  Download and start listening now!

    " Chock full of historical data and humor. Loved it! My only regret is that I got through it too quickly. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laura | 2/17/2014

    " Amazing book. She laid out her case so clearly that I almost felt like I was reading a Geometry proof. :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sherry Anderson | 1/20/2014

    " I listened to this on audio. It was very enlighting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dave Jones | 1/14/2014

    " An interesting caser laid out for the mob mentality of progressive, relying on groupthink. With lots of footnotes. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kelly Baroletti | 12/21/2013

    " Loved it. Coulter is always spot on. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tom Heil | 12/16/2013

    " Great comparison of the French and American revolutions. Underscores the importance of ideas controlling our emotions and not just following the crowd. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janice Williamson | 12/8/2013

    " I like Ann Coulter--her logic, her humor, her directness. Found out things about liberals (who she calls the "mob")--the injustice of it all--the lies, the denial, the deceit. Some sections are not an easy read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Scott | 11/28/2013

    " Surprisingly insightful essay on modern mobocracy with parallels drawn to French Revolution and contrasts to American Revolution. Provides further evidence of political Left's obsession with destroying individual agency and imposing collective "salvation." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeff | 11/19/2013

    " So far so good. 4 stars so far because I'm not sure if she's going to go on one of her maniacal diatribes... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John Murphy | 11/17/2013

    " This (and most of Coulter's books) should be mandatory reading for liberal elites. Not that they would understand it, but perhaps if they knew their own history they might be able to understand the ruin for which they are headed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Betty | 11/10/2013

    " lots of interesting history of the French Revolution. I generally find this type of book takes some effort to get through but this one didn't. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tyler | 11/9/2013

    " Fun read. As always, about a 1/3 of her arguments can be turned on her, but eye-opening perspective and a good counter-balance to mainstream political thought. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ellen | 10/29/2012

    " So fantastically funny, intelligent and with copious footnotes! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Charlene | 8/10/2012

    " OMG Ann Coulter at her best. Unbelievable look at the French Revolution. As a history major, I was shocked at her research and how a great deal is "left out" of what we currently teach Americans regarding that time period. Her research is flawless, whatever you think of her politics. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 William | 5/26/2012

    " A well researched book on the use of crowd tactics by progressives to archive their goals. Mixed in with some history of earlier uses of these techniques during the French Revolution which ended badly for all. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Glenn | 5/17/2012

    " She's obviously got a bias, but I found the book well-researched, clear, concise and well-reasoned. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Patrick Johnson | 2/28/2012

    " This book reminds me why I am not a Democrat. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cheryl | 6/22/2011

    " Educational, tragically truthful information on the "mob mentality." She has an enormous collection of self incriminating quotes from the Left and their propaganda machine. Her analogies are spot on. Love her or hate her, she never states anything she cannot back up. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joseph D. | 6/19/2011

    " Great if your in the mood for a little red meat for the summer BBQ. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dave | 6/13/2011

    " An interesting caser laid out for the mob mentality of progressive, relying on groupthink. With lots of footnotes. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kelly | 6/5/2011

    " Loved it. Coulter is always spot on. "
