IS IT ANN COULTER -- OR IS IT DAVID DUKE?
Maybe people wouldn’t be so quick to call Ann Coulter a hatemonger if she didn’t write so much like...well, an ex-Klansman. Here are twenty-five statements, some from Coulter’s best-selling book Slander, others from writings posted by David Duke at his Web site, David Duke Online (including excerpts from his book, My Awakening). Duke is thought of as a man with, well, issues about black people, and while that’s true, a visit to his site shows that the real bee in his bonnet is Jews. So I’ve chosen Duke passages in which he talks about Jews, while the Slander passages, needless to say, concern liberals.
Can you tell which is which?
1. ...[liberals/Jews] are bitter. The one impulse that consistently unites them is hate.
2. You will never appreciate the full savagery of [the left/Jews] until you get in their way.
3. Powerful [liberals/Jews] in media and government around the world frequently act to exert control over the peoples among whom they live.
4. [Liberals/The Jewish people] hate America, they hate “flag-wavers,” they hate abortion opponents....Even Islamic terrorists don’t hate America like [liberals/Jews] do.
5. Through the efforts of [liberal/Jewish] and other traitors to the United States, the American government has embarked on a foreign policy that has repeatedly betrayed America’s true interests.
6. Predators are great fun for [liberals/Jews]. Criminals and poor people allow them to swell with a sense of their own incredible self-worth.
7. [Liberals/Jews] hate society and want to bring it down to reinforce their sense of invincibility. Secure in the knowledge that their beachfront haciendas will still be standing when the smoke clears, they giddily fiddle with the little people’s rules and morals.
8. The same media that prohibits even the slightest criticism of [liberals/Jews] has no reluctance to demean other groups....The portrayal of the slack-jawed, green-toothed, ignorant, racist, hateful, murderous, rural White Southerner has become a stereotype in Hollywood films....In stark contrast, whenever [liberals/Jews] are mentioned as a group, it is always with a sort of a hushed reverence.
9. Like all propagandists, [liberals/Jews] create mythical enemies to justify their own viciousness and advance their agenda.
10. Each year, tens of thousands of stories about intelligent, compassionate, unselfish, creative, moral and courageous [liberals/Jews] fill two-foot TV screens and 30-foot movie screens; our newspapers, magazines, and books; our playhouses, pulpits and podiums; our radio waves and satellite transmissions. There are thousands of portrayals of persecuted [liberals/Jews] as innocent, noble and heroic; while their opponents are portrayed as the embodiment of evil. No group on Earth has better public relations than do [liberals/the Jewish people].
11. The wildly disproportionate percentage of [liberals/Jews] in the media is not an insignificant point. The media determine how the news will be served up, how the players are characterized, what news to report, and what news not to report. The same clichés, biases, and outright lies are constantly reinforced through the media sound chamber.
12. The [liberal/Jewish] domination of American media is long-standing. Even as far back as the 1920s, [liberals/Jews] had influence far disproportionate to their percentage of the population. And even though media operations frequently change hands and the CEOs, chairmen, administrators, and top editors change, [liberal/Jewish] domination is stronger than ever—and the power brokers continue to increase and consolidate their power.
13. Once I discovered the [liberal/Jewish] power over the American media, I resolved never to surrender my freedom of speech in deference to it, no matter what it would cost me. I became determined to oppose the media masters who seek to destroy our way of life and our very life form.
14. During my hundreds of interviews over the years, whenever I mentioned [liberal/Jewish] media domination, my interrogators first would deny the [liberal/Jewish] preponderance of power. Then, when that defense sank beneath a sea of facts, they acted shocked that anyone could even suggest that [liberals/Jews] might use their media power for their own advantage.
15. [Liberals/Jews] don’t try to win arguments, they seek to destroy their opponents and silence dissident opinions.
16. If you live in a major city, the daily newspaper you read will more than likely be [liberal/Jewish]-owned or -edited. So will the national newsmagazine you buy at the news counter. More than likely, the national cable or regular TV network you watch will be [liberal/Jewish]-owned, and if not, [liberals/Jews] will be preponderant in the executive and decision-making departments. The movie you see in the theater or watch on television will very likely have been produced, directed, or written by [liberals/Jews]—and often all three. The publishers of the hardbacks or paperbacks you read, even the record companies that produce the music you buy, will probably be [liberal/Jewish]-owned, and if not, they will very likely have [liberals/Jews] in key executive positions. Bookstores and libraries often select their new book purchases based on reviews by [liberal/Jewish] critics and publications such as The New York Times Book Review, another part of the [liberal/Jewish]-run New York Times.
17. Vast agglomerations of money are deployed to publish and promote [liberal/Jewish] authors. National magazines and newspapers give hallucinatory reviews of books by their fellow [liberals/Jews] and snub books by [conservatives/Christians]. Ludicrous uncompensated advances are made to support [liberal/Jewish] authors, and [liberal/Jewish] jeremiads make it to print without the most cursory fact-checking.
Meanwhile, the entire information industry works overtime to suppress [conservative/Christian] books.
18. Book publishing is perhaps the part of American media least controlled by [liberals/Jews]. Yet they still dominate the most important parts of that industry. All one needs is a printer and some cash to publish a book, and tens of thousands of printers do business in America along with hundreds of small book publishers. Yet here too the [liberal/Jewish] influence is powerful, for writing a book, no matter how intelligent and provocative, offers no guarantee of it being published, and being published offers no guarantee of being professionally promoted, distributed, or even reviewed. The half dozen or so of the largest publishers and distributors handle 95 percent of the biggest-selling books in America. And in those areas of book publishing and distribution, [liberal/Jewish] appraisal is inevitable and [liberal/Jewish] approval is crucial.
19. The spirit of the First Amendment has been effectively repealed for [conservative/Christian] speech by a censorious, accusatory mob. Truth cannot prevail because whole categories of thought are deemed thought crimes.
20. If there were a modern Spanish Inquisition in America today, it wouldn’t be Bob Jones rounding up Catholics. It would be [liberals/Jews] rounding up [right-wingers/Christians] and putting them on trial for hate crimes.
21. As they have gone from outsiders to now thoroughly dominating the Western governmental and media establishment, many [liberals/Jews] have shifted from strong defenders of free speech to some of its most willful suppressors.
22. The [liberal/Jewish] students who dominated the "free-speech" movement at Berkeley in the mid-’60s sang the praises of free speech for the purpose of inviting to campus the likes of the filthy-mouthed and repugnant Allen Ginsberg and the violent, openly Communist, black revolutionary Angela Davis. Today they attempt to silence anyone who dares to speak before a student audience on the issues raised in this book.
23. [Liberals/Jews] need not bother with logical persuasion as long as they can prey on people’s sense of weakness.
24. My assertion that there exists a powerful, cohesive, world-wide [liberal/Jewish] supremacism finds confirmation in evidence mostly provided by the [liberal/Jewish] supremacists themselves.
25. That’s the whole point of being a [liberal/Jew]: to feel superior to people with less money.
