Guilty: Liberal "Victims" and Their Assault on Americaby Ann Coulter
Synopses & Reviews
“Liberals seem to have hit upon a reverse Christ story as their belief system. He suffered and died for our sins; liberals make the rest of us suffer for sins we didnt commit.”
Who are the victims here? To hear liberals tell it, youd think they do nothing but suffer at the hands of ruthless entities like the “Republican Attack Machine” and Fox News.
Its just another instance of the Big Lie, of course, told so often that some people have actually started to believe it. In Guilty, Ann Coulter explodes this myth to reveal that when it comes to bullying, no one outdoes the Left. Citing case after case, ranging from the hilariously absurd to the shockingly vicious, Coulter dissects these so-called victims who are invariably the oppressors. For instance:
•Single mothers: Getting pregnant isnt like catching the flu. There are volitional acts involved-someone else explain it to Dennis Kucinich. By this purposeful act, single mothers cause irreparable harm to other human beings-their own children-as countless studies on the subject make clear.
•The myth of the Republican Attack Machine: The most amazing thing liberals have done is create the myth of a compliant right-wing media with Republicans badgering baffled reporters into attacking Democrats. Its so mad, its brilliant. Its one kind of lie to say the Holocaust occurred when the Swedes killed the Jews. But its another kind of lie entirely to say the Holocaust occurred when the Jews killed the Nazis.
•“Brave” liberals: In addition to being beautiful, compassionate tribunes of the downtrodden, liberals are brave. I know that because theyre always telling me how brave they are. Why, five nights a week, MSNBCs Keith Olbermann courageously books guests who completely agree with him. It doesnt get much braver than that.
•Obambis luck: While B. Hussein Obama piously condemned attacks on candidates ­families, his media and campaign surrogates ripped open the court-sealed divorce records of his two principal opponents in his Senate race in Illinois.
•The offenders are offended!: Republican senator George Allens career was destroyed when he made a joking remark to a privileged Indian American harassing him at campaign stops. When did rich kids become a new protected category that must be shielded from words that are insulting in other languages? How did Sidarth become a specially anointed victim? What did we ever do to India? And why didnt we ever hear about the far more offensive anti-Semitic flyers of Allens opponent Jim Webb?
One essential and recurring truth about self-righteous liberals, says Coulter, is that “they viciously attack all while wailing that they are the true victims.” With Guilty-a mordantly witty and shockingly specific catalog of offenses that liberals would rather we ignore and forget-Ann Coulter presents exhibits A through Z.
Just as presidential politic hits fever pitch, Coulter's new work promises to be timely, controversial, and filled with the author's fearless penchant for saying what needs saying about politics and culture today.
In her most controversial and fiercely argued book yet, Ann Coulter calls out liberals for always playing the victim — when in fact, as she sees it, they are the victimizers. In GUILTY, Coulter explodes this myth to reveal that when it comes to bullying, no one outdoes the Left. GUILTY is a mordantly witty and shockingly specific catalog of offenses which Coulter presents from A to Z. And as with each of her past books, all of which were NYT bestsellers, Coulter is fearless in her penchant for saying what needs saying about politics and culture today.
This book is so hot we can't tell you what it's about. Ann Coulter never disappoints.
