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.

Blame it on Paris
The French are to blame first, then the Democratic Party according to AC.
This is an excellent history on the French Revolution and the revolutions that followed. There is a history on the American Revolution and how it differed from the FR. There is a lot on Mobs and mob mentality. These ideas and explanations alone are reason enough to buy the book.
AC is very entertaining, and very informative. It sounds as if a lot of research was done in order to write this book. Listening to the history was erudite. Evidently your not going to get this type of history lesson in our schools or universities.
AC's arrogance and all or nothing blame is the main problem. In placing blame she often contradicts herself, even in the same chapter. I believe she should also point out that she is talking about Liberal Elite, not the everyday hard working democrats. I am married to a democrat and she is not the evil, demonic person Coulter paints her. On the other hand Democratic Leaders are suspect. I was a Republican for years, but Bush ruined me on that. I now believe that there is not much difference between the two. Either party will do what it takes to be in power.
I think if you are a strong Democrat you do not want to buy this book, I believe it will probably just piss you off. If AC, Rush Limbaugh and Glen Beck could all be less arrogant and so 100% sure of themselves they would do better for there cause, but they may not have as many listeners or sell as many books.
Preaching to the crowd sells books and gets ratings.
AC is entertaining and very informative. I enjoyed the book and learned about the FR , AR and mobs and how mobs work. Anytime I can learn and be entertained is a plus.

Just when you thought it was safe....
Ann Coulter did it again. This time not only does she call out leftists on their hypocrisy, but she also provides a very detailed history of a number of key events that are generally misunderstood in our revisionist world (French Revolution etc.). If you are a leftist and afraid to listen to Ann, I think you should reconsider. No matter your perspective, she provides well documented insight into the mob mentality and how it is used in modern times. This is the heart of the ultra-leftist (Nazi, communist, socialist, environmentalist, etc. etc.) way of thinking....all facts are relative...the mob (collective good, Volk, common will, State) is holy...
This really is a powerful read, and I enjoyed it for the depth of history provided. This is a candidate within my library for a second listen...not that many books make that grade with me. Highly recommend.
