Theodor Herzl Benjamin Ze’ev (Theodor) Herzl (Hungarian: Herzl Tivadar, Hebrew: בנימין זאב הרצל (Binyamin Ze’ev Herzl)) (May 2, 1860 — July 3, 1904) was an Austro-Hungarian Jewish journalist who founded modern political Zionism. Herzl was born in Budapest, Hungary, but his family moved to Vienna when Theodor was 18. There, he studied law, but he devoted himself almost exclusively to journalism and literature, working as a correspondent for the Neue Freie Presse in Paris, occasionally making special trips to London and Istanbul. Later, he became literary editor of Neue Freie Presse,and wrote several comedies and dramas for the Viennese stage. The Leader of the Zionists It is widely believed that Herzl was motivated by the Dreyfus Affair, a notorious anti-Semitic incident in France in which a French Jewish army captain was falsely convicted of spying for Germany. Herzl had been covering the trial of Dreyfus for an Austro-Hungarian newspaper. He also witnessed mass rallies in Paris following the Dreyfus trial where many chanted “Death To The Jews!”, and in June, 1895, he wrote in his diary: “In Paris, as I have said, I achieved a freer attitude toward anti-Semitism… Above all, I recognized the emptiness and futility of trying to ‘combat’ anti-Semitism.” Song: Stout-Hearted Men sung by Nelson Eddy.

In an argument that poses a challenge to conventional interpretations of the First Amendment, she argues that because liberals are wrong on every issue concerning political analysis or policy prescription, their politics amount to treason. Her analyses range from the career of Senator Joseph McCarthy to the Gulf War, from the Whittaker Chambers-Alger Hiss affair to the present war on terrorism, from the Nixon presidency to that of Clinton, from domestic to foreign policy. Coulter’s power derives not only from the consistency and thoroughness of her argument that “Liberals have been wrong about everything in the last half century”, but also from her over-the-top humor.
