Ann Coulter At Homocon: 'Marriage Is Not A Civil Right. You're Not Black.'
tpmdc ^ | September 26, 2010 | Megan Carpentier

Posted on 09/26/2010 9:01:10 PM PDT by tlb

Ann Coulter doesn't mince words. And even when speaking to a gay conservative organization, GOProud, at their inaugural Homocon party on Saturday night, she apparently wasn't willing to start.

After a series of jokes about conservative that sounded -- and were received -- more like a stand-up act then a political speech, Coulter told the assembled (and predominantly wealthy) conservative gay crowd why they should oppose same sex marriage, adding, "I should warn you: I've never failed to talk gays out of gay marriage."

And then she did.

First, she ran down the stereotypical stand-up comedian's list of reasons, including that lacking the legal right to marriage allows the less-committed partner to weasel out of it. But in a more serious note, she parroted the losing arguments of the lawyers supporting California's Prop 8 and told the crowd that the reason she opposes (and they should oppose) same sex marriage is that it is strictly for procreation.

In one of a series of racially insensitive remarks that pervaded her speech, Coulter added, "Marriage is not a civil right. You're not black." It was part of a larger argument on which she later elaborated, telling the crowd that the 14th Amendment only applies to African-Americans and that it does not, in fact, apply to women, LGBT people or other minorities.

Considering the board nearly melted down that she would dare go into the same room with the sinners, it's odd the incident passed without comment. To balance the hysterics and nuts who previously said Coulter lost them for this betrayal, the hysterics and nuts on the other side say now they hate her even more:

How is it “racially insensitive” to tell a group they don’t qualify for racial civil rights because they are not black (and their group is not a racial group of any kind)?

Funny how being straightforward about race when whitey talks about race is racially insensitive. But when a minority is being straightforward about race, it's profound.

Good for Ann! Wonder what Farah has to say now?

Gay marriage is a foolish cause for homosexuals, its all about forcing society to accept homosexuality as the same as heterosexuality, and while the vast majority of people are willing to live and let live, they are NOT willing to normalize homosexulaity once it is made clear to them exactly what that means for society.

It was ridiculous to think she was going to “sell-out.”

She never has, so why would she start with the GOProud homosexual group? She’s always been against gay marriage.

Take a look at the comments at the link.

I didn’t find any complimentary to Ann Coulter.

Not sinners. We're all sinners. The term you're trying to avoid is sexual deviants.

So are you going to slyly root for homosexuals, without being obvious, on this thread too?

What would be the point of joining GOProud as they have a homosexual agenda? Someone that's chaste wouldn't be interested in "domestic partner" issues. So the premise is flawed.

I don’t. But anyone who endeavors to legitimize homosexuality is an unrepentant sinner as they don’t recognize the sin.

Woe to those Christians who aid and abet them in that endeavor.

Someone please help. For the life of me I cannot find a single thing Ann Coulter said to be racially insensitive. She talked about the 14th amendment applying only to blacks and black people agree with that. In no stretch of the imagination has it ever applied to gays. So what "race" is she being insensitive towards?

Step one: Announce you will take the gay group’s $ and get hated on by conservatives (boosting profile).

Step two: Go to gay group’s event and tell them they are wrong to be gay and get hated on (boosting profile).

Step three: sell books, speaking engagements, political endorsements, and whatever else while charging more due to boosted profile from various controversy.

You are correct, of course.

Ann's comment, "Marriage is not a civil right. You're not black" was not only NOT insensitive, it was very sensitive in the favor of black folks, and other racial minorities, who should not have to tolerate being compared the pervert minorities on account of their skin color.

All the cheerleaders for Coulter are now coming out of the closet, I see....

Sorry, Ann does not get a pass for this. Taking a speaking engagement for Homocon is going to get you kicked off a values-related speaking engagement....Farah was correct, now matter how Coulter attacked the gays in attendance

Coulter still supported Mitt Romney (socialized medicine before Obama) early in the 2008 campaign over conservative candidates....and has repeatedly attacked Birthers...sounding like her friends on MSNBC and Bill Maher. She still has not produced Obama’s long form birth certificate to prove why Birthers are “nuts”...

Coulter is still a liberal....and real conservatives see right thru her schtick

Yep.
Ann tried to put that idiocy to rest when she compared this speaking engagement with her past numerous speaking engagements at similarly hostile venues - - universities and colleges. It's easy to speak to friendly conservative audiences and feed them up the red meat with humor and gusto, but speaking bluntly to packed houses full of potentially violent liberals, skeptics, and goofballs takes guts. Everybody should have known this was coming.

That's not a "Bible thumping" generality. It's very specific. And the owner of this site states that FR is pro-God.

You probably think that's clever but it doesn't apply as it is about hypocrites. Homosexuals are unrepentant sinners that use the force of government to force approval of their deviancy. Aiding someone in their sin makes you guilty also.
