Skip to comments.Ann Coulter At Homocon: 'Marriage Is Not A Civil Right. You're Not Black.'
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.

I read on FR that Ann was going there to RINO up and sell out. Whut happened?
Ann Coulter is great.
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.
I’d like to hear her talk or preferable read a transcript. Of course the “racially sensitive” thing is total crap.
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.
“Ann Coulter is great.”
Yes, she is, I’m shocked they invited her, they must have known
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?
She just spoke the truth.. the 14th amendment was and is for black slaves.. not all blacks..
Regardless of what people think of her, everyone has to agree that regardless the number of people in the room, Ann can control everyone in it like a bit in a horse’s mouth.
Actually, the proper term is unrepentant sinners.
"I went to a fight and a hockey game broke out...."
I heard that for the first time a few years ago. It is funny.
If they think the Constitution “says” anything about marriage, they’re really not conservatives.
