Demonic: How the Liberal Mob Is Endangering America - Ann Coulter
Synopses & Reviews

RUSH: Well, [Ann], you stumbled across [Gustave Le Bon] as your latest vehicle to try to explain to people how liberals operate, how they achieve or attempt to achieve their objectives. Give us a little historical review of him.

COULTER: Yes. Well, I have this idea in my head that liberals are a mob and so I just started reading everything I could find on mobs, groupthink, herd behavior, riots — and I’d heard of Gustave Le Bon — and then finally I read Gustave Le Bon’s book, “The Crowd: A Study of the Popular Mind,” and it was so clear, so beautiful; and of course he turns out to be the father of groupthink. He’s the first one to notice the psychological characteristics of someone behaving in a mob. Not surprisingly, he was French since the first mob revolt certainly in anything resembling modern times is the French Revolution. I date the beginning of liberalism to the French revolution. Just page after page you read through this book, and it’s liberals. It’s all of their peculiarities. I almost went back and started inserting some of the other statements from the other books I had read into this book to show that it was more than Le Bon, but he was just so clear and so right. In fact, he was so good — although the book is a warning about mobs — both Mussolini and Hitler studied his book in order to learn how to incite mobs.
