The Rhetoric Devolves – GOP Consultant Rick Wilson Labels Ann Coulter A Prostitute

Over at her website today, my friend Diana West published an essay on an issue with which I never thought she’d have to deal.  With the growing public support for Donald Trump’s detailed plan to deal with our nation’s life-threatening immigration problem, there is a collective broad-based panic-stricken “conservative” journalistic stampede in progress – toward the most vulgar and pornographic rhetoric.

It’s a function of full-blown terror, caused by the fact that everything the press corps and broadcast media outlets have done to sink Donald Trump and wipe him out of contention for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination has failed.  People must be pulling their hair out in abject frustration.  They’ve not been able to stop him.  And the shell-shock is taking its toll.

Here’s how bad it has gotten.  CNN contributor and Republican Strategist Rick Wilson published a Twitter post directed at conservative author and Trump supporter Ann Coulter, strongly inferring that she is a hooker, a prostitute – and asking if Donald Trump pays her extra for anal sex.  There is a whole lot of this kind of “conservative” journalistic excrement slinging going on.  Diana West has done a fine job of compiling it in her essay.  Send the kids somewhere else if you’re going to read it.

For now, with thanks to, let’s look at Mr. Wilson’s original handiwork.

@AnnCoulter Does Trump pay you more for anal?


If you read the Breitbart column, you will see that Wilson tried to backpedal and apologized in several subsequent Tweets – but not to Ann Coulter and not to Donald Trump.  He apologized only to his friends and followers, of which I am not one.

The panic which is now voraciously gnawing at the innards of America’s mainstream press corps is the source of such stuff.  This is, after all, a campaign for the nomination of the GOP candidate for the office of President of The United States of America.  For the rhetoric to have sunken to the level of pornographic inferences as weapons to use in stopping Donald Trump, and insulting the likes of Ann Coulter, does not bode well for what awaits us as the campaign unfolds.

This is really getting ugly.  And, as Diana points out in her column, many of these so-called pundits who have gone to the sewer for material do not hesitate to lecture about civility and decorum in political discourse.

Meanwhile, as President Obama continues to violate his oath of office by refusing to enforce our immigration laws,  the Mexican border remains wide open – and illegal aliens continue to pour into our nation by the thousands.

About John L. Work

John Lloyd Work has taken the detective thriller genre and woven an occasional political thread throughout his books, morphing what was once considered an arena reserved for pure fiction into believable, terrifying, futuristic, true-to-life “faction”. He traveled the uniformed patrolman’s path, answering brutal domestic violence calls, high speed chases, homicides, suicides, armed robberies, breaking up bar fights, and the accompanying sporadic unpredictable moments of terror - which eventually come to all police officers, sometimes when least expected. He gradually absorbed the hard fact that the greatest danger a cop faces comes in the form of day-to-day encounters with emotionally disturbed, highly intoxicated people. Those experiences can wear a cop down, grinding on his own emotions and psyche. Prolonged exposure to the worst of people and people at their worst can soon make him believe that the world is a sewer. That police officer’s reality is a common thread throughout Work’s crime fiction books. Following his graduation from high school, Work studied music and became a professional performer, conductor and teacher. Life made a sudden, unexpected turn when, one afternoon in 1976, his cousin, who eventually became the Chief of the Ontario, California, Police Department, talked him into riding along during a patrol shift. The musician was hooked into becoming a police officer. After working for two years as a reserve officer in Southern California and in Boulder, Colorado, he joined the Longmont, Colorado Police Department. Work served there for seven years, investigating crimes as a patrolman, detective and patrol sergeant. In 1989 he joined the Adams County, Colorado Sheriff’s Office, where he soon learned that locking a criminal up inside a jail or prison does not put him out of business. As a sheriff’s detective he investigated hundreds of crimes, including eleven contract murder conspiracies which originated “inside the walls”. While serving on the Adams County North Metro Gang Task Force and as a member of the Colorado Security Threat Intelligence Network Group (STING), Work designed a seminar on how a criminal’s mind formulates his victim selection strategy. Over a period of six years he taught that class in sheriff’s academies and colleges throughout Colorado. He saw the world of crime both inside the walls and out on the streets. His final experiences in the criminal law field were with the Colorado State Public Defender’s Office, where for nearly two years he investigated felonies from the defense side of the Courtroom. Twenty-two years of observing human nature at its worst, combined with watching some profound changes in America’s culture and political institutions, provided plenty of material for his first three books. A self-published author, he just finished writing his tenth thriller.
