Demonic: How the Liberal Mob is Endangering America is a book by best-selling author and conservative columnist Ann Coulter, published in 2011.

In describing her book, Coulter told CBS News anchor Jeff Glor:

  • ... the left's image-based arguments, combined with their frequent adoption of utterly contradictory positions, it turns out, are classic earmarks of mob mentality. Then, of course, there are the frequent explosions of violence from the left, when mob psychology leads to something more frightening than confusing, and becomes an actual, literal mob.[1]

Her publisher's book description says:

  • Democrats have a history that consists of pandering to mobs, time and again, while Republicans, heirs to the American Revolution, have regularly stood for peaceable order. Hoping to muddy this horrifying truth, liberals slanderously accuse conservatives of their own crimes—assassination plots, conspiracy theorizing, political violence, embrace of the Ku Klux Klan. Coulter shows that the truth is the opposite: Political violence—mob violence—is always a Democratic affair.[2]

In a 2012 column noting the release in paperback, Coulter stated that much of her book is based on the work of French sociologist and social psychologist Gustave Le Bon.[3]
