I saw this and I thought, oh, this is too good to be true! M’Ann Coulter at a gay rally? Well, stranger things have happened. Which begs me to ask the question: Does Ann Coulter really believe in all of the eggregious hateful speech she spews, or is she just a liberal parading in conservative clothing?
By and large, I think that it proves that M’Ann Coulter cares more for her pocket book than her ideals and principals that she espouses. Likewise can be said of the homocons that invited her. If you’re gay, be gay. But M’Ann Coulter is the last person on earth that you would want to come to your rally. In case you still don’t believe it, look at this.
Before you spit out your pernod and grapefruit juice, I can explain. No, Fox fave and conservative diva Coulter is not sporting ruby slippers. She’s not hanging out with Munchkins (as far as I know!). But she is getting mighty close to that rainbow because she’s the featured speaker at the “GOProud” (gay conservatives) first annual “Homocon” – “a party to celebrate gay conservatives.” Christopher Barron, Chairman of the Board of “GoProud,” describes her as a “Right wing Judy Garland.” Yes, it’s a complex world when Ann Coulter, whose repertoire includes some homophobic comments, gets invited to a gay event; but as any self respecting professional knows, if you can’t do it for love, do it for the money, honey! (Elton John knows that it’s all about the “Benjamins!”) “GoProud” Director, Jimmy LaSalvia, said that “this is about having fun.” Although he admits that he doesn’t agree with everything she says, he asserts “we can all party together.” (Hopefully copious amounts of alcohol will be served!) But that’s not the end of the story. It seems that the hardcore, homophobic religious right guys are having a bit of a hissy fit about La Coulter’s appearance. For more delicious dish, and I don’t mean my world renowned Julia Child bœuf bourguignon, freshen up your potent potable and follow me down the yellow brick road.
Joseph Farah, of World Net Daily, dropped Coulter as a keynote speaker at his “Taking Back America” Conference because Coulter is “validating” an “infiltration of the conservative movement and dividing it from within with twisted and dangerous ideas way out of the mainstream of American public opinion.” He states that “it would not make sense for us to have Ann speak to a conference about ‘taking America back’ when she clearly does not recognize that the ideals to be espoused there simply do not include the radical and very ‘unconservative’ agenda represented by GOProud,” BTW, Farah and several other “wingers” withdrew from this year’s CPAC because “GoProud” sponsored it. Farah also says, regarding his conference, that “there is simply no room for compromisers or for people who accept money from those determined to destroy the moral fabric required for self-governance and liberty.” So she’s like “oh no you didn’t” and has accused Farah of being a “publicity whore” who “could give less than two shits about the conservative movement as demonstrated by his promotion of the birther nonsense.” She states that “They hired me to give a speech. So I’m giving a speech. I do it all the time.” Regarding lost speaking fees, Coulter says “she isn’t losing any money over Farah’s decision to drop her from his conference because he couldn’t afford to pay her anyway.” (Oh, snap!) But Coulter will still have her column on WND and both she and Farah will get some juicy publicity; so it really could be about just “having fun!”
Update: Radical Christian Right Winger Bryan Fisher says Ann Coulter is a conservative prostitute – the “Ashley Dupre of the conservative movement.” Oh, no he didn’t!!! Fasten your seatbelts cuz we could be in for a rough ride!
Oh, and about that “right wing Judy Garland” thing. You really shouldn’t be sullying the memory of a woman with phenominal talent with a no talent hate monger like Coulter. Pulleeze!
