    Tuesday September 28, 2010 Ann Coulter Rocks HomoCon, Blasts Same-Sex “Marriage” By Peter J. SmithNEW YORK, September 28, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Conservative commentator Ann Coulter stayed true to her reputation for courting controversy during an address to homosexual conservatives in New York on Saturday, telling them that they did not need special rights and that marriage was the union of a man and a woman.According to reports, Coulter charmed her audience of 150 at the HomoCon fundraiser for GOProud with a number of jokes, admitting that it must have been difficult to come out of the closet and tell...

    BREAKING: JAYSON BLAIR NOW WORKING AT POLITICO!September 28, 2010 Excerpts from a Politico reporter who seems not to have been at the event he was allegedly reporting on, probably because he's homophobic: “The broad surge in the conservative grassroots made it as far as PayPal founder Peter Thiel’s grand apartment overlooking New York’s Union Square Tuesday night, where about 150 backers of the conservative gay group GOProud gathered to laugh at Ann Coulter’s red meat riffs on Democrats, blacks, and the Obamas at a fundraiser organizers touted as ‘Homocon.’” The event was Saturday night -- not "Tuesday" -- there...

    GOProud Pays Lots Of Money To Be Demeaned By Homophobic Racist 09/26/10-by Bridgette P. LaVictoireHomocon is exactly what Ann Coulter did yesterday. She conned a group of homosexuals to give her money while she demeaned them and went on in a very racist fashion. She apparently made a series of jokes and then went ahead and stated the predominantly wealthy conservative lesbians and gays that they should oppose marriage equality and said “I should warn you: I’ve never failed to talk gays out of gay marriage.” She then went on to parrot the usual run of why lesbians and gays...

    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...

    In the wake of a dispute between WorldNetDaily editor Joseph Farah and conservative author Ann Coulter over her decision to headline an event sponsored by GOProud, a gay conservative organization, Farah and GOProud Chairman Christopher Barron will square off in a debate later this month at WND’s convention. Barron told The Daily Caller that Farah challenged him to debate over whether GOProud can be considered “conservative” after Farah argued on his site that there is no place within conservatism for an organization like GOProud, a group that promotes itself as “the only national organization representing gay conservatives and their allies.”...

    What could be more fun than a nasty cat fight between two right-wing leaders, especially when one of them is Ann Coulter, a columnist who attacks the “gay agenda” while claiming to be “the right wing Judy Garland?” The fur started flying when Coulter, who uses “fag” as a putdown, accepted an invite to speak at next month’s “Homocon,” the convention of gay Republicans (yes, Virginia, there are queer GOPers) sponsored by a group calling itself GOProud. Joseph Farah, who publishes the ultra right WorldNetDaily, pitched a fit when he heard about Coulter’s plans, and cancelled her appearance at his...

    The Washington Post ^ | August 27, 2010 | Sandhya Somashekhar
    A growing number of Republicans are breaking with the party's traditional stance to publicly state their support for same-sex marriage, a shift strategists say stems as much from demographics as from the renewed focus on economics and the "tea party" movement. A solid majority of adults younger than 30 - about six in 10 - support the right of gay and lesbian couples to legally wed, according to a Washington Post poll in February. But even many older Americans and self-identified social conservatives have changed their view on an issue that just six years ago galvanized voters in support of...

    World Net Daily ^ | August 25, 2010 | Joseph Farah
    There's been some confusion about this event next month called Homocon, sponsored by GOProud, which bills itself as a Republican and conservative "gay" group. At first glance, the group's platform may have some appeal to conservatives – and I have no doubt that some of the group's members actually vote Republican. "GOProud represents gay conservatives and their allies," claims a mission statement on the group's website. "GOProud is committed to a traditional conservative agenda that emphasizes limited government, individual liberty, free markets and a confident foreign policy. GOProud promotes our traditional conservative agenda by influencing politics and policy at the...

    Ken Mehlman, President Bush's campaign manager in 2004 and a former chairman of the Republican National Committee, has told family and associates that he is gay. Mehlman arrived at this conclusion about his identity fairly recently, he said in an interview. He agreed to answer a reporter's questions, he said, because, now in private life, he wants to become an advocate for gay marriage and anticipated that questions would arise about his participation in a late-September fundraiser for the American Foundation for Equal Rights (AFER), the group that supported the legal challenge to California's ballot initiative against gay marriage, Proposition...

    First, Glenn Beck throws in the white flag on gay marriage, as Politics Daily reported earlier this month, and now Ann Coulter has gone AWOL on what just a short time ago was considered a battle flag issue for conservative culture warriors. The latest controversy on the right began late last week when it was revealed that Coulter, the brutally straight-talking author and pundit, was going to headline next month's HomoCon 2010, an annual event organized by GOProud, a group of gay Republicans. Coulter has been called "notoriously homophobic" by some critics, but she has also described herself as a...

Farah appeared on two radio shows that are hosted by gay talk show personalities this week to blast Ann Coulter for headlining an upcoming party sponsored by GOProud, an organization that represents gay conservatives.

    .................I believe that's what Jesus meant when He told us to love our enemies. The ultimate demonstration of love for a Christian should be to evangelize the lost. There is no indication Ann Coulter has ever used one of her paid speaking engagements to do this. In fact, I'm not even sure a paid speaking engagement is an appropriate forum for evangelizing. Nevertheless, I have heard from a few Christians who compare Coulter's paid speaking gig to Homocon with Jesus sitting down with tax collectors and sinners. That is not good discernment. Coulter is a political activist, a pundit, a...

Coulter claimed she was never actually booked for the event, repeated her resentment over publishing her e-mail explanations to WND Editor Joseph Farah for appearing at GOProud's Homocon event and lashed out at WND for "pushing the birther thing," which she said is not supported by any conservatives.

    News that conservative columnist Ann Coulter would speak at "HomoCon 2010," an event organized by the conservative gay group GOProud, prompted conservative outlet WorldNetDaily to drop her from speaking at one of its upcoming events. Coulter defended her decision to accept the invitation, saying, "They hired me to give a speech, so I'm giving a speech. . . . I speak to a lot of groups and do not endorse them. I speak at Harvard and I certainly don't endorse their views." But while she may have lost a WND speaking gig over it, most young conservatives I spoke to...

The fund raising The Left, as one might imagine, might have a hard time putting together the word "gay" and the word "conservative" in the same sentence.

GoProud particularly opposes the estate or death tax since gay couples do not enjoy the marriage exemption to the tax as...
