Ann Coulter Beats Andrew Breitbart in “Gay” Butt Kissing Contest!
Redstate ^ | August 24, 2011 | Ryan Sorba

In an August 10 article appearing on the front page of OneNewsNow.com the world learned that Ann Coulter –the “Queen of Conservatism”– was one-upping Andrew Breitbart and Grover Norquist in their “gay” butt-kissing contest by accepting a new position as Honorary Chair of the pro-sodomy organization GOProud. Said Coulter about her new position:

I am honored to serve in this capacity on GOProud’s Advisory Council, and look forward to being the Queen of Fabulous.

If GOProud advisory board member and Gay-Stream Media (GSM) mogul Andrew Breitbart were any happier about this turn-of-events he’d be “gay”!

Shortly after appointing their new Honorary Chair, GOProud declared Ann Coulter a “Gay Icon.” No folks, you’re not reading an Onion article.

Ann Coulter has traded her Conservative crown in for a “gay” tiara. Now this formerly-closeted social-liberal is in the public bathroom stall with the “gays” and her credibility with Conservatives is going down faster than Larry Craig can knock three-times –or DID activist Andrew Breitbart can find out that nobody cares that he’s boycotting Conservatism, again! Well, he isn’t as bad as Mr. Swindle yet -but he’s gettin there!

Due to the controversy generated by Coulter’s move some young activists are asking themselves if “gays” can be a part of the Republican Party?

The answer to the question of course is no. No, Ann, they can’t. What part of “Party of No” don’t YOU understand?

I am not arbitrarily banning self-identified “gays” or pro-“gay” activists from membership in the Conservative movement. Nor am I  a “nasty bigot,” of course. I am simply explicating a tenet of Conservatism. Just ask Mr. Conservative himself. 

Ronald Reagan on the relationship between the government and homosexuality: 

We will resist the efforts of some to obtain government endorsement of homosexuality.

Ronald Reagan on “gays” and HIV/AIDS:

Maybe the Lord brought down this plague [because] illicit sex is against the Ten Commandments.

Ronald Reagan’s hand-picked Supreme Court appointees Antonin Scalia and William Rehnquist rightly upheld anti-sodomy statutes in Bowers v Hardwick.

Conservative icon William F. Buckley Jr. felt the same way. When left-wing activist Gore Vidal called him a crypto-Nazi, he replied stridently:

Now listen, you queer, stop calling me a crypto-Nazi or I will sock you in your goddamn face, and you will stay plastered.

Buckley later apologized to Vidal for his stridency but not before making his position on the unnatural vice clear:

…the man who in his essays proclaims the normalcy of his affliction [i.e., homosexuality], and in his art the desirability of it, is not to be confused with the man who bears his sorrow quietly. The addict is to be pitied and even respected, not the pusher.

GOProud, the pro-sodomy organization which Ann Coulter now honorarily chairs, is an organizational manifestation of what Mr. Buckley referred to as “the pusher.”

GOProud’s mission statement on its website proclaims, “GOProud represents gay conservatives and their allies. GOProud is committed to a traditional conservative agenda that emphiasizes limited government, individual liberty, free markets and a confident foreign policy at the federal level.”

However, in a moment of candor last August, GoProud co-founder Christopher Barron tweeted about the organization’s true mission:  

We are a gay organization, we only work on gay issues, we have never claimed otherwise. My God people.

The aforementioned tweet was posted at 4:04 p.m. on Aug. 4, 2010 by Christopher Barron -the organizations founder.

GOProud’s advisory board member Andrew Breitbart seems to agree with Reagan and Buckley. He implicitly acknowledged that sodomy is not a Conservative tenet 25 minutes into an interview on C-SPAN last October when he stated that he is not Conservative or even libertarian, but “libertine on issues of consensual behavior among adults.”

Conservatism has grown in recent years, not only due to national frustration about the economy and Obama’s socialist health-care plan, but also due to the hard work of a lot of Conservative organizations and activists. This is a good thing, and the entire movement might be more united if it weren’t for the controversy and divisiveness brought about almost single handedly by GOProud.

Although the Conservatism which animates the Republican Party has no rigid ideological dogmata, it isn’t in essence populism either. Conservatism ascendant, I suppose we now need an objective standard by which to determine when a group is legitimate. I propose the following simple measure:

One must not insert an issue contrary to conservatism’s core tenets into one’s core organizational structure or core personal political identity, if one expects to be considered “Conservative.”

Conservative intellectual Floyd Brown summarizes those core tenets thusly:

The conservative movement as envisioned by Frank Meyer is a coalition between economic conservatives, social conservatives and defense and foreign policy conservatives. GOProud’s participation…undermines the coalition envisioned by Meyer, the philosopher at National Review that developed the framework on which the modern American conservative movement was built.

Ann Coulter, renounce your affiliation with GOProud, stop contributing to the “born gay” hoax, and stop using individuals with Same-Sex Attraction Disorder (SSAD) as fodder for the multi-cult (aka cultural-marxists), and third-wave feminists, or prepare to be divorced from Conservatism, and Christianity, for that matter. Oh by the way, Francios A. Houle says ”Hi!” He says you’re welcome back in Ottawa again. Congrats! I guess I’m the one banned now. This is a zero-sum game. If you keep on the course you’re on, you lose.

I certainly don’t understand her embrace of the homosexual deathstyle, unless she, herself is about to be outed. Can’t be any other reason.

Her Dopra-Winfried logic about homosexuals being born that way cannot be condoned when ALL studies have shown that homosexual behavior always was and always will be an aberrant character and behavior disorder, not supported by any physical logic.

Just because the APA was bullied into dropping homosexuality as negative behavior back in the 70s, doesn’t mean that it’s normal.

I wouldn’t be surprised if she’s going to be outed soon.

I don't use the word gay . . . gay means happy . . . anyway, if she's a homosexual, yes, she can be a conservative . . . but I'd rather not know that she's a homosexual anymore than I'd want to know that she might be an alcoholic or a drug addict.

If she were a homosexual, then don't tell me . . . work on correcting that behavior.

She is adamantly against same-sex marriage. I was surprised when I read about her joining that board.

No.

American conservatism, and this free republic, are rooted in a moral understanding of the universe. Natural right. Natural law. Dependence on the One Who created us.

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men..."

Our second President, John Adams, summed it up very well:

"We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge or gallantry would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution is designed only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate for any other."

As long as they aren’t out actively “recruiting” and “doing it in the road” and understand that limiting government power is a good way to keep them out of your bedroom then it is possible.

But far too many in the gay community are under the mistaken impression that to protect what they do in the privacy of their own homes they have to buddy-buddy up with big government. They fail to realize that it make it far easier for the system to turn onthem in the future and strip them of their rights.

Failure to understand inherent rights is a classic symptom of being a liberal.

The “gay community” would be far better served by joinging the Libertarian party in the Long run, but the lust for power in the Democrat/Liberal idealogies is just to attractive in the short term.

The gay Lobby also need to realize that even according to their “patron saint Kinsey” they will never be more than 10% of the population and as a “perpetual minority” they shouldn’t expect overt acceptance and praise for their lifestyle. However they do have the same rights as everyone else in terms of not being prosecuted by the state for their lifestyle unless it infriges upon other people’s person or private property.

Conservatives - some of them anyway - need to decide whether they want to be 'virtuous' and out of office or gay-tolerant and influential in other matters. This is a settled issue for most of the public, or an almost-settled one. It is a losing issue for the Right.

If gays harm anyone, they harm themselves. And 'government out of my bedroom' means 'government out of everybody's bedroom'.

Children are being conditioned by her stand into believing something “evil” and destructive—by Teleological and Natural Law standards, as well as by all traditional religious standards—is “good”. She can’t be Conservative.

It does not surprise me that Ann Coulter with her bizarre worldview which contains incompatible ideas—Conservatism and Pro-homosexuality—does not have any children.

She has no concept of the process of creating “worldview” for children and cares nothing about their Brave New World future she is trying to promote—that which dissolves biological relationships. She is evil to promote ideas which deny children their fundamental right to have both a biological mother and father. She is advocating the silencing of the Bible and all the principles that made this country so successful.

Children with biological parents are the most likely children to be protected emotionally and physically from all abuse—including molestation. Break up the natural family—and have no genetic interest in the child—they are much more likely to be sexually abused as well as emotionally abused.

She thinks you can actually teach children, up is down, that urges are the determination of morality, that thousands of years of morality and the ideas of the Founders are incompatible with Freedom—when it is the very foundation of freedom. She is no Conservative when she adopts this cultural Marxism. Shame on her!

the problem, as always, is not individual homosexuals but the wealth and legal clout of the big homosexual organizations.

Big Gay has millions and milliojns of dollars, and Ann is just adding to their clout. They sue and lobby and produce big advertising campaigns. GLAAD and the Human Rights Council (one of the wealthiest) are lobbying your representatives in your state capitol and inDC as we speak.

They want homosexual sex education in the schools, they want to take over mainline churches (and those churches’ wealth, buildings, investments etc.), they want free sex-change operations for jail and prison inmates and endless ‘diversity training’ programs in all the federal agencies. More money for Big Gay; corporations and federal bureaucracies forced to hire these ‘diversity training’ groups and pay them a great deal for very little.

Not that there isn’t Gay Rodeo, Gay Olympics, Gay softball leagues etc. that do not admit heterosexuals.

If Ann is helping to empower these big, bullying, wealthy gay organizations, then shame on her.

I repeat, it has nothing to do with homosexual *individuals*.

I hate it when I hear of people voting for some homosexual legislation because ‘my son (or whoever) is gay’.

It has nothing to do with people’s relatives or loved ones.

Of course the big wealthy homosexual organizations put out a constant stream of press rleases and propaganda that it’s all about the individual. It is not.

You can not be conservative and PROMOTE the idea that something that goes against Natural Law Theory and God’s laws—is normal and “good” and should be encoded by law that “up is down”.

She can be gay and Conservative—but only if she acknowledges what the Founders did—that homosexuality is a sin when acted upon. It is nihilism and destructive to the body and destroys the very Foundation of our Conatitution and the idea of “Natural Rights” which come from God.

She is removing God’s standards of right and wrong and inserting Andrew Sullivan’s or Charles Mansons, or .....you put whomever...that is what moral relativism is....anyone else’s standards of “right and wrong”—not God’s which is the Objective Truth our country was formed on (Conservatism)—and where Natural Rights originates-—only from God, not governments, not Ann Coulter, not .....

Norquist has been gay friendly for years. And Muslim friendly. And a vector for open borders and amnesty for illegals in Washington.

I don’t know why anyone who calls themselves conservative would pay much, if any, attention to anything he says.

And his promotion of Perry should be a huge warning flag for all.

[ If gays harm anyone, they harm themselves. And ‘government out of my bedroom’ means ‘government out of everybody’s bedroom’. ]

How do you enforce morality in other people’s bedrooms between consenting adults. You cannot because to enforce such things you have to give a lot of personal property rights and allow the government onto everyone’s private property. You may not like this, but you start allowing the government into your bedroom and you allow them into every aspect of your lives.

What the government CAN do is restrict the actions of people on public/government owned property such as schools and parks. Local Laws can be passed against public lewdness and sexual acts in public. I think that there should be restrictions on people groping each other in public be it between a man and women or one and the same.

They want to use the levers of big goverment powers to force themselves via “forced acceptance” because it is an easier way to do this than trying to “earn acceptance by leading by example and living well”.

Earning acceptance is a LOT harder especially for that group than it is “Bully Acceptance”.

The Gay Community already won their battles years ago when some of the invasive laws (and unconstitutional laws, which were a violation of the 4th amendment)were overturned, but in order to justify their existance they keep pushing and pushing it from the bedrooms and into the public square. Originally they were only pushing for “privacy in the bedroom”, but after gaining it they kept going not realizing that they were becomming more and more unreasonable. They tasted power and got addicted to it, which is no wonder they so easily partnered up with the left.

But it is selective; while a lot of people attack Ann Coulter for joining the board of GOP proud, a lot of others are quite fond of Tammy Bruce, who actually is a homosexual, and is the chair of the GOPProud advisory council, and supports gays in the military.

We know he is a trusted advisor to Rick Perry.

I've met Grover Norquist. He is a force in republican politics; he shows up at a lot of republican events, and speaks about tax issues.

Apparently he spoke about taxes in March of 2011 in Texas, at a Perry event talking about not raising taxes and not raiding the rainy day fund.

I can find nothing on the web that identifies Norquist as an advisor in any capacity for Rick Perry, much less a "trusted advisor"; I have no doubt Perry would take a Norquist phone call, because he is the head of an anti-tax organization. Many conservatives sign Norquist's no-new-tax pledge.

But do you have a link to something other than an opinion piece that identifies Norquist as being part of the Perry team, or being one of his "trusted advisors" (whatever you actually mean by "trusted"). I'm not saying campaigns wouldn't have Norquist advise them on tax issues, just that I can't find a story about that, except bloggers talking about Perry's "muslim" problem.
