Coulter utters the new f-word
World Net Daily ^ | March 5, 2007 | Tom Flannery

Posted on 03/05/2007 1:12:17 PM PST by Stepan12

Will Ann Coulter never learn?

There are some things you just can't say, not even in jest. And at the top of that list right now is anything derogatory about the "gay" lifestyle or, worse yet, anything that is considered a slur against homosexuals, a protected class of people with special rights which entitle them to live free from all offense.

Ann surely should have known this. After all, hasn't she seen any of the countless films or TV shows produced by Hollywood in recent years which promote homosexuality as a perfectly normal and acceptable alternative lifestyle? Indeed, the homosexuals in virtually every one of these films and TV shows are smarter, funnier, hipper and more humane than the heterosexual characters.

Hasn't she seen or read any of the endless media stories promoting homosexuality in the same glowing manner, with never a critical word to be uttered? Doesn't she know that our schools are teaching children that homosexuality is a completely legitimate practice, and one we must all embrace and support as such whether we engage in it or not?

Yet despite all of this, Ann had the unmitigated gall to get up before an overflow crowd at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Friday, while the cameras were still rolling, and say this: "I was going to have a few comments on the other Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards, but it turns out you have to go into rehab if you use the word 'faggot,' so I – so kind of an impasse, can't really talk about Edwards."

This fine author says the same things I have said recently, except in more eloquent terms. I refuse to be cowed by the lynchmob mentality against Ann Coulter. I also refuse to follow the lead of Michelle Malkin (another fine author and I mean that seriously) in her ignorance of comparing homosexuality with a particular race. Homosexuality is a sex addiction defined by disgusting and dangerous behaviors. Michelle Malkin doesn't understand that; Ann Coulter understands that, at least implicitely.

I'm with Ann on this one (and 99.99% of the rest)

It will be interesting to see if the Homomafia can get to her. I hope not.

Maybe this country has just become way too politically correct. It used to be that you could actually have FREE SPEECH...you may suffer for it, but that is your choice. Ann is still number 1 with me no matter what an queer says, and they can say what ever they want to say.

It isn't on the approved list. Unless you are one. Kind of like the "N" word for blacks.

Here's the deal. This is a very good article and goes further than the weak and intimidated masses dare. But as long as he concedes that respect is something owed to everyone then he might as well not waste his time. He has lost the argument. He can't say he gets to criticize and say all the things he wants to say if he also concedes he is obligated to be respectful. They don't define the traditional conservative position on homosexuality as respectful. Regardless, respect is a meaningless term if it no longer has to be earned. If it is an entitlement then it isn't respect but rather forced phoniness.

Coulter can indeed say whatever she wants, in or not in jest - and she did precisely that. What she and her defenders seem to be looking for, however, is the ability to say whatever she wants, no matter how offensive, without the need to face the consequences.

Which one "denounced her?"

McCain Camp said the comments (not the woman) "were wildly inappropriate"
Which is a true statement.

Giuliani said, “The comments were completely inappropriate and there should be no place for such name-calling in political debate.”
---- Which is a true statement.

The Romney spokesman said, "“It was an offensive remark. Governor Romney believes all people should be treated with dignity and respect.”

My homosexual neighbor, who drives the elementary school bus, likes to visit the sheep barn at least once a day. Should I have any concerns?

Clinton called Bush I "stupid" in a debate and was applauded for it. I find that offensive. In fact, I think the media just generally offensive more of the time. And how about the left calling Bush "Hitler" all the time. Why isn't that turned into a scandal? At least in my examples the people really meant the criticism in a direct way.

The full article is quite good.
There are several protected classes in the USA. There are several thousand words that conservatives are forbidden to say, but liberals can say without fear of retribution.
What is amounts to is that any time any member of a protected class says that he/she/it was offended by anything that a conservative said, did, thought, or thought of thinking, the conservative is given a severe xxx-reaming.

It isn't on the approved list.

Could someone please post the approved speech list? I was going to ask for the list of 'words that will get you sent to rehab", but I think the approved speech list is shorter and shrinking every day.

Sorry about the multitude of Ann pings lately, but this effort to send anyone to re-education camp who dares stray from the PC reservation has got to stop!

Let me know if you'd like to be added to the Ann Coulter ping list.

Denounce wasn't too strong a word. The difference is they denounced what she said, not her. Personally I think you can't really separate a person from what comes out of their mouths (or from what they do) as though these are two (or three) separate entities. So give yourself a break. The other poster is just trying to win the argument with silly word-play.

Don't bother... many here are under the delusion that Duncan Hunter is going to somehow defend Ann for calling Sen. Edwards a faggot. Of course, when the good gentleman properly distances himself they'll call him a spineless Rino traitor who has no place on their party.

Not.

Leftists have this preconceived notion about conservatives that we're all "bigots" or "racists" and try to read that into any comment made,

but God Himself forbid if a "liberal" utters something anti-American or anti-Military and we call them on it (because it IS a given that "liberals" are both) - "It was a botched joke!"
