Ann Coulter To GOProud’s Gays: Stop Forcing Your ‘Fisting’ Education On Kindergartners

When Ann Coulter told the wealthy gays gathered in Peter Thiel’s home at GOProud’s Homocon fundraiser event in New York that marriage wasn’t a “civil right,” it wasn’t just a punchline. It was part of a whole argument about why gay people shouldn’t support their own right to marry.

“I should warn you: I’ve never failed to talk gays out of gay marriage,” Coulter told her audience of conservative (perhaps self-loathing) homosexuals. Except she did fail to do just that, notes TPM.

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.

Fortunately, not everybody was applauding. Or even laughing. This shows even the quisling supporters of GOProud have somewhat of a spine left. Maybe even a few discs? They didn’t even think much of her fisting joke.

In fact, despite opening her speech with a joke about the difficulty of “coming out” as a fiscal conservative to one’s parents — something she congratulated the attendees on — Coulter’s speech to GOProud mystifyingly focused on social issues and not the fiscal and foreign policy issues that brought most of the attendees there. For instance, she told GOProud that the conservative gay rights movement ought to make common cause with the anti-abortion movement because, she said, “as soon as they find the gay gene, you know who’s getting aborted.” Coulter also made a forceful case against sex education in schools, accusing liberals of attempting to teach kindergartners about “fisting” (which garnered her a heckler, who shouted out “What’s wrong with fisting?”) and told the crowd that most parents didn’t want their children learning about the “homosexual lifestyle” instead of reading and writing.

Oh, and then there were her claims that even though the 14th Amendment only protected people of color, it was those people responsible for the crumbling of America’s social values. This one did generate some hahas!

Several attendees, who requested anonymity, were also startled by her racially-tinged humor: in addition to her comments about civil rights, she also accused single parents of breeding muggers and blamed the decline in marriage in the African-American community on welfare, “the subsidization of single parenting” and overly liberal child support laws. Coulter’s comments about civil rights being “only for the blacks” rubbed many people the wrong way as well, though her joke about oppression and the amount of money in the gay community compared to other minority communities (“Blacks must be looking at the gays saying, ‘Why can’t we be oppressed like that?’”) garnered plenty of laughs from the well-heeled crowd.

Having not attended the event, I reached out to an acquaintance who did. He told me the above account is pretty accurate, and “the hand soap in the bathroom smelled wonderful.” He was joking of course, just like GOProud was when they invited these terror.

      Serves them right. They hire a bomb throwing pandering, bigoted, jerk and they are shocked that he basically made a mockery of the whole Gay rights movement????

      BTW: Speaking of the bathroom, Mann Coulter was snapped in the bathroom prior to slathering on all his makeup………. :p

      If there is anyone who needs a good fisting, it’s Ann Coulter.

      Why is anyone surprised? A snake does what it does; the person who thinks he can reason with the snake is the fool. So when these sell-out fools get bitten, I can only point and laugh and laugh and laugh… GopProud is a bunch of rich and wannabe-rich far right assholes for whom their bank accounts come before all, including their own self-respect; so fuck ‘em with Coulter’s big d*ck! They are loathed by both the right and left & are deservedly pariahs in both worlds.

      I’m really at a loss for words. The old saying comes to mind, “with friends like her who needs enemies.”

      All I can say is GOProud and Mann Coulter obviously deserve each other.

      But you do endorse teaching kindergartners that they are guilty of outrageous sins perpetrated by mythological figures, and further, that child’s horrible behavior is the reason God torture-murdered his own child in advance, and also that God wants them to engage in weekly ritual cannibalism?

      Even assuming that kindergartners ARE being taught fisting (a reality that exists only in your fevered and pathological imagination, Ms Coulter), I’d honestly prefer the fisting instruction. When the child rejects fisting, she will not be threatened by society with an eternal hellish torment.

      Now, please go kill yourself, you lackwitted bully.

      “as soon as they find the gay gene, you know who’s getting aborted.”

      This is the most evil thing I’ve read in a long time. ‘Abortion is bad, unless it’s for killing faggots like you.’ Serves GOProud right for thinking this abomination wouldn’t attack them with all the vitriol she has.

      Kindergaten is waaay to young to learn about that. I had to wait until the 5th grade to learn the ins and outs of fisting.

      Best clause ever: “Pressed to discuss what specific issues GOProud supports…”

      She always struck me as a bizarre fusion of Camille Paglia and Ayn Rand. There’s a great clip from the CBC where she is intellectually humiliated by the journalist.

      Is it evil for me to wish a long, excruciatingly painful and violent death on this pseudointellectual harpie?

      This hatchet-faced cunt serves no useful purpose except to generate hot air. and for the record, I fucking hate her and hope she gets a house dropped on her. Like her sisters.

      Since this comment was removed from the other Homocon 2010 post, I repost it here:

      I read on another site that Michael Lucas was at this event. Why am I not surprised?

      I wonder if he pissed, or farted on anyone?

      This only goes to show the selfish, self-hating, hateful, lowlifes that is GOProud members. They will laugh at a joke poking fun at everyone else until their brain finally catches up and realizes the joke’s on them!

      “as soon as they find the gay gene, you know who’s getting aborted.”

      I’m afraid this is true. It doesn’t strike me as absurd to expect an eugenics part deux. Sadly heteros want to be straight and homos want to be queer and everyone wants one’s children to be like oneself. So unless the scientific breakthrough of two fathers or two mothers becoming biological parents will arrive before the no-homo pill things might actually turn out the way Coulter predicts. (Not saying that hers isn’t a scare tactic and that what she says is relevant anytime soon.)

      @Soupy: That is an insult to both Camille Paglia and Ayn Rand! :P

      Perhaps some good may still come from this debacle. I hope that seeing the true venom, proud anti-intellectualism, cognitive dissonance, and outright fear inherent in modern American conservatism will drive these “well-heeled”, fiscally-conservative queers into the arms of the more-welcoming Libertarian movement.
