Ann Coulter: What they’re doing is using insurance as communism; Update: Video added

posted at 4:15 pm on February 10, 2012 by Tina Korbe

Ann Coulter’s CPAC speech was, just as you’d expect, snarky, sharp, witty and — at times — wince-worthy, but, out of her many memorable lines, one stood out to me most. In the midst of a succinct dismantling of Barack Obama’s liberty-infringing mandate that religiously-affiliated employers provide their employees with insurance coverage that covers contraception, she came out with this: “What they’re doing is using insurance as communism.”

She drew that sentence out into a larger discussion of the original purpose of insurance and warned that, if we allow government intrusion via the insurance industry to go unchecked, the government could acquire control of even the minutest details of our lives.

In the midst of all the intense discussion of the administration’s so-called contraception mandate, folks rarely point out the obvious: What disaster necessitates contraception in the first place? As simply put as possible, we pay insurance so, in the event of a disaster, we’re able to pay damages. We pay insurance so, in the event of sickness, we’re able to pay for our health care. What sickness does contraception cure?

If the administration isn’t quite implementing communism, it’s at least proving it was never slippery slope logic to say, if the Obama administration can force us to buy health insurance, they can force us to buy anything at all. Any product they want in the hands of, well, everybody, they’ll just force insurance companies to cover. You might not have to buy the product for yourself — but you’ll have to buy it for others. Obama’s best “accommodation” just makes that even clearer.

Update (AP): Eleven minutes of highlights via Mediaite, including a very compelling argument on behalf of her preferred nominee — by which, of course, I mean Chris Christie. I assume she threw that in to remind the conservatives who are angry at her for defending Romney that even she doesn’t have Mitt as her top pick.

You Romney bashers don’t get it. Romneycare is market-based Communism based on the Federalist Papers. If you don’t get that, you hate the Constitution.

This is hardly earth-shattering news. If the State can tell us what to do – because it has some ridiculous link to interstate commerce – then the power of the State is unrestrained, inasmuch as everything has some ridiculous link to interstate commerce.

This is why I will not vote for Romney. I will not vote for any Statist sonofabitch who thinks that he can dictate to us – because he said so.

Marcola on February 10, 2012 at 4:30 PM

Ann, try this argument. “If they can force you to buy health care insurance, they can also force you to QUALIFY to buy health care insurance. Own a gun, register as a Republican – sorry, can’t help you. Come back when you qualify. “

Dire Straits on February 10, 2012 at 4:30 PM

I think Ann biggest motivation is that she feels that she was right in 2008, proved it, and is right in 2012. I don’t mind her choice of candidate as much as her vindictiveness about the other candidates. She’s very funny but things she has said about Sen. McCain (regardless of how annoying) and Newt are better left unsaid. She’s wants Obama treated with kid gloves but anything said about our guys is swell.

H.L. Mencken on FDR:

He was so expert a demagogue that it would have been easy for him to divert the popular discontent to some other object. He could have been beaten only by a demagogue even worse than he was himself, and his opponents showed no sign of being able to flush out such a marvel… He was always a mile ahead of them, finding new victims to loot and new followers to reward, flouting common sense and boldly denying its existence, demonstrating by his anti-logic that two and two made five, promising larger and larger slices of the moon. His career will greatly engage historians, if any good ones ever appear in America, but it will be of even more interest to psychologists. He was the first American to penetrate to the real depths of vulgar stupidity. He never made the mistake of overestimating the intelligence of the American mob. He was its unparallelled professor.

rjulio on February 10, 2012 at 4:37 PM

The obvious solution is to repeal Obamacare. Now that the negative consequences of Obamacare are being felt, Catholics that are only now waking up to reality need to get in line and join the rest of us that are trying to take back our freedom and liberty that was stolen from us by Obama and the ruling class. They don’t get to cut to the head of the line. They need to help us repeal Obamacare in it’s entirety or else explain to us why their liberty is more important than the rest of ours. Why should I care about their liberty if, once theirs is returned, they’re just going to give the rest of us the finger and go back to supporting Obama and Obamacare?

Repeal Obamacare and Romneycare!

I think Ann has lost a significant amount of her credibility. To say that Mitt is the most conservative of the candidates is at best an untruth. And to get so behind Christie when he isn’t a conservative on many issues loses her CPAC cred.

Coulter is right to invoke that once explosive word “communism” into the political arena. It’s a word that once drove school kids beneath their desks. Today, it’s old slang, like “groovy” and “far out.”

The fact is communism is a seductive and insidious lie. It demonizes basic human traits like the desire to make a better life for oneself. It casts the world into the good (the 99%) and the evil (the 1%). It promises utopia but always — always — delivers dystopia.

“Animal Farm” should be required reading for Republicans this cycle. We need to be reminded why people fall for this line of thinking and what happens when nobody puts up a defense against it.

I’d be interested in a HOT-AIR poll asking “If there is a brokered convention what new candidate would you consider voting for” but instead of the NRO approved choices of Jeb, Mitch etc. Put Rubio, Ryan and Christie.

I’d go with Ryan. He appears to want to create a spendthrift trust for the government.

I’m assuming that you’re a Cuda fan. The Cuda is my favorite car … my dream car is a 1970, 426 Hemi Cuda, orange with a black shaker hood.

Do you think that Obamuh can force the taxpayers to give me one? It just has to come under the Commerce Clause.

I guess it amazes me that just because someone is backing a candidate someone else doesn’t like, that the someone else feels it necessary to hate the someone.

Careful – you’re in for some good old fashioned HotArian hatred yourself for even suggesting such a thing.

In an case, it’s the HotAriean way of debating: “You either agree with me or you’re an idiot and I hate your guts.”

Sorry, have to say it again:

The New Republican Party (as envisioned by some here at HA):

The “Get-Out-Of-My-Tent-Because-We-Don’t-Agree-On-Everything-100%” Party.

I think getting on board with RomneyCare is blurring the lines. That’s not even a moderate position, it’s hardcore liberal.

SO save your “purity is for suicide bombers” platitudes for David Frum’s website.

I don’t dislike Ann because she endorses Gov. Romney. I still enjoy listening to her and will give her decision the respect that she should give others.

Ann Coulter and Glenn Beck both proved why Rush is the king of conservative talk radio. They not only put their public political reputations on the line for their chosen politicians, but ruthlessly attacked and smeared anyone who disagreed with them. Sometimes it takes sad events like this to see who is the true wise-man in the house.
