GOProud’s Barron: ‘No One Should Be Surprised’ Ann Coulter Said Terrible Things About Gays At HomoCon

We celebrated by asking Ann Coulter to speak, and Ann Coulter was exactly who we thought she was when we invited her. Ann is someone who we disagree with on issues like marriage, but is also one of the funniest, most provocative, and – yes – controversial conservatives out there. Ann’s participation in Homocon helped this organization raise a substantial amount of money, money that will help us continue to push our agenda of common-sense conservative solutions to the challenges facing gay and lesbian families. No one should be surprised that Ann was controversial and no one should be surprised at the histrionics from the left about her appearance. The truth is that if the left showed half as much outrage over Iran’s brutal treatment of gay people as they did about our party in New York, we might take their criticism seriously.

—GOProud Chairman Christopher Barron, clearly enthusiastic about the publicity Homocon’s headliner is generating, in a post-event statement

    Cristopher has officially crossed from douchebag, to asshole. I didn’t hear shit from GOProud, or the LCR about Iran’s, or Iraq’s treatment of queers, and heard plenty about it from the “left”; including Queerty.

    Barron has admitted that this event was about raising money for himself and GOProud, and not about advancing any sort of equality. That he is willing to get into bed with someone as anti-gay as Coulter, demonstrates clearly that Christopher Barron is a whore.

    Fuck you, you iPhone pic taking, Aunt Tom

    It might just be me but I think shes more of a bigoted air headed bitch probably just me though.

    Ha! Found this on another website:

    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.”

    Suck it, Barron! You actually thought you and Coulter were buddies? She’ll take your money, but does not like you.

    Ann Coulter is funny? I hadn’t realized.

  • PLAYS WELL WITH OTHERS

    These douchefags and The Uncle Toms Log Cabin Repugnaticans and their constant groveling at the feet of the repugnatican party remind me of the after school specials on the TVs about the kids who no one seemed to like and didn’t fit in………………….

    They would try their hardest to make other kids like them. They would have their parents throw these really over the top parties and invite all the popular kids. After Mommy and Daddy spent a silly amount of coin and the popular kids left smiling with their gift bags the next day at school they would beat the shit out of the kid again………

    Ugh! I wasn’t going to comment because it’s obvious to most people that GoProud is not proud of who they are and sold out. But I had to. It’s just disgusting to be in bed with the devil.

    WTF!!

    There are no words………..

    @ Miss Understood – love it! Describes this tool and his group of deluded idiots perfectly. The horse-faced Ann Coulter is nothing but a well-paid clown tossing off firebombs, and these GOProud idiots just got punked big-time.

    And though we should ignore the whining toddler until he shuts up and stops demanding attention, I just have 2 things to say:

    1. Glad to hear you are concerned about the horrible treatment gays are subject to in Iran…so how much of that money you raised is going to help oppressed gays overseas? Hmmm…thought so.

    2. Just because your nose swings so far to the right doesn’t mean the rest of you has to follow.

    To Christopher Barron, all that matters is that both he and Ann Coulter believe in more tax cuts for the rich and bombing brown people, to hell with gay rights.

  • Soupy

    Clearly the men of Go Proud like to take it doggy style. Unfortunately, they have no idea what is behind them.

  • whatever

    Their tag line for the event was “Our gays are more macho than [the left’s] straights.”

    That’s funny, when I saw the Lucas/Coulter video, I saw a bunch of nelly, mincing homos and very humungous dykes. I doubt any of them fight in the Republican wars they all support.

    Hard to figure if you get money for the “ones” stabbing you in the back and then give it back to them, who is getting head… I mean getting ahead? WTF is GoProud really supporting?

  • southpaugh

    GOProud’s delusion and self loathing at the altar of the almight dollar is sickening and pathetic. They pay to be told lies and paint themselves tough for withstanding the self afflicted flagellation. This group is truly, pathetically dysfunctional.
