Ann Coulter Defends Alec Baldwin In Op-Ed: He Was “Not Engaging in ‘Homophobia'”

You know you must be in the wrong when Ann Coulter steps up to your defense.

Yesterday, the dragon lady published an op-ed in support of Alec Baldwin’s homophobic outburst earlier this month when he was caught on tape allegedly calling a photographer a “cocksucking fag.”

“It is perfectly obvious Baldwin was just cursing the guy out with whatever bad words popped into his head,” Coulter wrote, “not engaging in ‘homophobia’ against an actual gay person.”

Evidently, hurling aggressive gay slurs at people doesn’t count as homophobia in Coulter’s book. For some reason this doesn’t surprise us.

Coulter also called Baldwin’s outburst “justified,” then accused his critics, both liberal and conservative, of being “shortsighted” and enforcing a policy “where careers are ended over a word.”

“Liberals don’t mind abortion, sexual promiscuity, adultery, lying or criminal behavior,” the professional shit-stirrer wrote. “They save all their moral indignation for people who use politically incorrect words.”

Then, in true Coulter form, she completely deviated from the topic at hand and started talking about all the reasons why Alec Baldwin is actually a victim.

The badly-Botoxed ice queen sympathized with him for having a stalker, defended him for calling his 11-year-old daughter a “fat pig” back in 2007, expressed her distain for his “feminist” ex-wife Kim Basinger, condoned his refusal to turn off an electronic device on a plane, and praised him for appearing with Sarah Palin on SNL back in 2008, “unlike the drama queen Tina Fey, who refused to share the stage with Palin.”

(For the record: This is untrue. Tina Fey did share the stage with Palin on SNL… But we’re still not sure how this is relevant to Alec Baldwin’s comments made earlier this month.)

Whatever Coulter’s motive is for publishing this op-ed (For publicity? For traffic? Maybe she really, truly cares about Baldwin’s well-being?), it’s likely not going to help the actor/suspended MSNBC host’s cause. The only thing more toxic than an endorsement from the dragon lady would be taking a dip in Lake Karachay.

    Stalin defending Caecescu.

    “Come on guys, he’s a commie, but it isn’t like he’s slaughtering dozens of millions like me, just a few million”

    Is there actually anyone worse to have jump to your defense than this muttonheaded subnormal troglodyte?

  • JohnnyRalph

    Maybe Alec Baldwin isn’t homophobic, but he’s still a douchebag overall

  • Degas

    No, Ann, liberals save all of their moral indignation for hypocrites, and for people like you, who desperately try to keep alive any divisive cultural war possible. It’s your bread and butter.

    I was surprised to see that Dan Savage also defended Baldwin on Bill Maher’s show last Friday. Strange “bedfellows” indeed! Maybe Comet ISON is messing with people’s thought processes or something.

    Coulter is defending Baldwin to defend herself, to keep others from holding her accountable for her own words.

    Ann Coulter wrote this column several days ago. Has Alec Baldwin issued a statement repudiating any support from this noted homophobic bigot?

  • viveutvivas

    AS despicable as Ann Coulter is, I agree with her on this one. Context matters. Alec Baldwin has liberal and pro-gay politics and is not a homophobic man. By the measure used by some of our hysteric fellow f*gs in the media, any of us who has, for example, called an unpleasant woman a bad word would be branded a misogynist.

    ‘”“It is perfectly obvious Baldwin was just cursing the guy out with whatever bad words popped into his head,” Coulter wrote, “not engaging in ‘homophobia’ against an actual gay person.””

    Yes Ms. Brain trust, it’s the fact that he considers words that reference gays to be “Bad Words” that makes it homophobic.

    If some man, got into an argument with another man and called him a pathetic, weak, Stupid, Woman would Ms. Coulter also say that his comments were not sexist towards women?

    Oh wait, that’s right, Ann wants all the benefits of equal rights as long as they apply to her.

  • krystalkleer

    i actually painfully agree with this C-U-Next-Time (though she only said a thing about it to make herself relevent fer the week!)
    Alec though may have said somethin’ that some may interpret as against someone’s sexaul preferance…he was NOT say’n it in a against homosexuals as a whole…it was cuz the annoy’n pap’s were try’n to get a story outta the situation and possible try and cash in on a lame story story…PERIOD!

  • oilburner

    Jesus Christ I actually agree with Mann Coulter . Alec Baldwin is not a homophobe he’s just a hot head shouting out whatever foul words first come to mind whenever he’s pissed off like any other a**hat no reason to cancel his show and brand him a homophobe

  • Bumper

    @JohnnyRalph: Agreed. He needs some major anger management help. He’s getting too old to hurt anyone anymore. Being the older brother is the bully position. Hopefully he reflects on this at some point……nah, he won’t! LOL

    Gee, Ann, I had no idea that Newt Gingrich, Mark Sanford, George W., Dick Cheney, and David Vitter were liberals.

    The issue isn’t whether or not he is a homophobic, it’s whether or not his actions were homophobic.

  • DShucking

    Alec Baldwin may not be anti-gay or a h*mophobe and he may not have ‘engaged in hom*phobia’ (whatever that means) but he used anti-gay, hom*phobic language. Much like Paula Deen, many people said, “It doesn’t matter if she’s r*cist. She used the r*cist words.”

    When Ann Coulter defends you, you know you’re wrong

  • ho

    Hey Man Coulter what’s with the Adam’s apple?
    And how about you hold a press conference and produce your birth certificate.
