David Brock: Self-absorbed Noise Machine



When visiting my best friend Bryan Jorgenson in Pittsburgh two years ago, I bought him David Brock's first book, Blinded by the Right: The Conscience of an Ex-Conservative. I was reading Ann Coulter's, Slander, at the time and felt if he read that book we could debate.

I don't know if he ever read the book but David Horowitz at Front Page Magazine read his latest tome, The Republican Noise Machine. Horowitz's review is thorough demonstrating Brock's only true passion: himself.

Here are some Ann Coulter quotes from Slander provided by Right Wing News. Be sure to buy her new book, How to Talk to a Liberal (If You Must): The World According to Ann Coutler.
"If it were true that conservatives were racist, sexist, homophobic, fascist, stupid, inflexible, angry, and self-righteous, shouldn't their arguments be easy to deconstruct? Someone who is making a point out of anger, ideology, inflexibility, or resentment would presumably construct a flimsy argument. So why can't the argument itself be dismembered rather than the speaker's personal style or hidden motives? Why the evasions?" -- Ann Coulter, P. 10

"'Moderate Republican' is simply how the blabocracy flatters Republicans who vote with the Democrats. If it weren't so conspicuous, the New York Times would start referring to "nice Republicans" and 'mean Republicans.'" -- Ann Coulter, P. 15

"With their infernal racial set-asides, racial quotas, and race norming, liberals share many of the Klan's premises. The Klan sees the world in terms of race and ethnicity. So do liberals! Indeed, liberals and white supremacists are the only people left in America who are neurotically obsessed with race. Conservatives champion a color-blind society." -- Ann Coulter, P. 26

"Liberals pretend to believe that when two random hoodlums kill a gay man in Oklahoma, it's evidence of a national trend, but when a million people buy a book, it proves absolutely nothing about the book-buying public." -- Ann Coulter, P. 103

"Liberals don't believe there is such a thing as "fact" or "truth." Everything is a struggle for power between rival doctrines." -- Ann Coulter, P. 113

"If liberals were prevented from ever again calling Republicans dumb, they would be robbed of half their arguments. To be sure, they would still have "racist," "fascist," "homophobe," "ugly," and a few other highly nuanced arguments in the quiver. But the loss of "dumb" would nearly cripple them." -- Ann Coulter, P. 121

"This is how six-year-olds argue: They call everything "stupid." The left's primary argument is the angry reaction of a helpless child deprived of the ability to mount logical counterarguments. Someday we will turn to the New York Times editorial page and find the Newspaper of Record denouncing President Bush for being a 'penis-head.'" -- Ann Coulter, P. 121

"'Stupid' means one thing: "threatening to the interests of the Democratic Party." The more Conservative the Republican, the more vicious and hysterical the attacks on his intelligence will be." -- Ann Coulter, P. 125

"Liberals hate religion because politics is a religion substitute for liberals and they can't stand the competition." -- Ann Coulter, P. 194

"Most of the time, liberals do not imagine the world is real. Their contribution to political debate is worthless, since even they do not believe things they say. The more shocking and iconoclastic they are, the more fashion points they accrue. Liberal Manhattanites believe in redistribution of their own wealth and ceaseless police brutality like they believe in Martians." -- Ann Coulter, P. 203

I notice you were unable to come up with any original comment about Brock's excellent book, and are content to let David Horowitz do your thinking for you... which is, of course, allowed in a free country, but probably ill-advised. I'm also fascinated to see how you highlight Coulter's apparent celebration of a one-party, one-political-line approach to government and public opinion, but I'd always suspected she was a closet totalitarian, as someone of her obviously stunted political intelligence seems consistently incapable of reasonable discourse or embracing other points of view. Gee, you really picked some inspirational heros to worship - nice job.
