Conservative iconoclast Ann Coulter has equated protesters in the Occupy Wall Street Movement with Nazis and likens their anti-capitalistic rhetoric to the “beginning of totalitarianism.”

Wall Street Protests are the beginning of totalitarianismSpeaking with Fox Business’ Eric Bolling on Monday about the protests in Lower Manhattan, which have sparked similar demonstrations in cities across the country, Coulter referred to the demonstrators’ use of the phrases “demolition of capitalism” and “if we can learn to share we can all live in prosperity.”

She said: “All of those quotes could have been said in 1789 in France before the French Revolution, or the Russian Revolution, or with only slight modifications when the Nazis were coming to power, in Cuba under Fidel Castro, Hugo Chavez in Venezuela. This is always the beginning of totalitarianism.”

Coulter also said the Democratic Party loves “mob uprising,” and added that Democrats “always assume that the mob leaders will remain mob leaders and not end up like Maximilien Robespierre, beheaded a couple of years after the [French] revolution began. That is often the way revolutions go.”

In her latest book “Demonic: How the Liberal Mob Is Endangering America,” Coulter spends two chapters examining the French Revolution and writes that "the Democratic Party is the party of the mob.

“Indeed, the very idea of a 'community organizer' is to stir up a mob for some political purpose."
