Conservative Pundit Accuses 'The Left' Of Violence

Liberals are more violent than conservatives, Ann Coulter argued Saturday.

Fox News reported that the right-wing political commentator and author offered as evidence of her claim a litany of former and current progressive groups, such as Black Lives Matter, the Weathermen, Occupy Wall Street and Antifa. “The left is constantly ginning their side up to be violent,” she declared.

Liberals get “the utmost respect” when they speak at conservative colleges, unlike the reception right-wingers receive on liberal campuses, according to Coulter. She said she cancelled her scheduled appearance at the University of California-Berkeley in April because she was afraid that violent left-wing demonstrators would interrupt the speech. While discussing Antifa, an organization opposing President Trump, Coulter warned that “the country is in a civil war.”

The commentator recently accused “violent leftists” of feeling “free to set fires, smash windows and beat civilians bloody” because “no police officer will stop them.” She wrote on her website that liberals “have carte blanche to physically assault anyone they disapprove of, including Charles Murray, Heather Mac Donald, Ben Shapiro, me and Milo Yiannopoulos, as well as anyone who wanted to hear us speak.”

As an example of violence by liberals, Coulter pointed to the case of Micah Xavier Johnson, the African-American who killed five white police officers at a Black Lives Matter protest in Dallas, Texas, last year. The commentator recalled that “President Obama held a news conference the next day to say it’s ‘very hard to untangle the motives.’” She wrote that Hillary Clinton “displayed moral blindness” when she declared on CNN that many officers are guilty of “implicit bias” against racial minorities. Coulter also mentioned the Bernie Sanders supporter who opened fire on Republicans, critically injuring House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, at a congressional baseball practice.

The pundit defended the organizers of an August rally in Charlottesville, Va., where a woman was killed and dozens of other people were injured by a reputed neo-Nazi who allegedly slammed his vehicle into a crowd of anti-racism counter-protesters. “We have no way of knowing if the speakers at the (rally) were ‘Nazis,’ ‘white supremacists’ or passionate Civil War buffs, inasmuch as they weren’t allowed to speak,” she wrote. “The Democratic governor shut the event down, despite a court order to let it proceed. We have only visuals presented to us by the activist media, showing some participants with Nazi paraphernalia.”

Coulter complained that “liberals have Republicans over a barrel because they used the word ‘racist.’” She explained that “the word is kryptonite, capable of turning the entire GOP and 99 percent of the ‘conservative media’ into a panicky mass of cowardice.”

Media Matters reported that Coulter is not among the conservatives condemning Roy Moore, the Alabama Republican Senate candidate accused of inappropriately touching a 14-year-old girl. “Yes, he dated girls who were 17, 19 when he was 30,” she said on Fox News. “We might find that a little creepy today, but this was nearly 50 years ago. … You can’t help thinking about the timing here.”

Since The Washington Post broke the story about Moore’s alleged encounter with the girl, several other women have come forward with their own claims of sexual harassment by the former judge.
