Ann Coulter: Liberal?
According to Wing Nut Daily, Ann Coulter is far too liberal to speak at their ‘Take Back America’ conference. These differences in philosophy stem primarily from her “fight for same-sex marriage and gays in the military”, according to the organization.
As per usual, the crazies have assumed ‘guilt-by-association’ because of Ann’s upcoming talk at GOProud, a surprisingly non-contradictory gay republican group. WND seems to think that, since she speaks at the organization, she obviously endorses 100% of their viewpoints. Ann, undoubtedly in her best crazy cat-lady tone, replies:
That’s silly, I speak to a lot of groups and do not endorse them. I speak at Harvard and I certainly don’t endorse their views. I’ve spoken to Democratic groups and liberal Republican groups that loooove abortion. The main thing I do is speak on college campuses, which is about the equivalent of speaking at an al-Qaida conference. I’m sure I agree with GOProud more than I do with at least half of my college audiences. But in any event, giving a speech is not an endorsement of every position held by the people I’m speaking to. I was going to speak for you guys, I think you’re nuts on the birther thing (though I like you otherwise!)
I happen to agree with Ann’s right to speak freely, despite the fact that she mostly spews vomitous garbage. When she came to speak in Ottawa, (invited by a local group), a couple of idiotic punks prevented her from dumping her load. It was wrong to stop her speaking then, and it is now, but it’s the wingnut’s conference, and they can do what they want with it. I really find amusing is the fact that Ann Coulter, who is so far right wing that she thinks all jews must be ‘perfected’ (or burn, I suppose), is too friendly towards TEH GAY for these crazies.
I believe it was Aristotle who said
It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.
