'Marriage Is Not A Civil Right. You're Not Black.'
I am so glad she's not one of ours.
How embarrassing for them!
"...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."
Sure Coulter, tell that to post-menopausal women who marry, and to couples who are sterile. You are not only cruel, but wrong AND stupid.
"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 people or other minorities.
Despite the laugh lines, Coulter's arguments against same sex marriage were not well-received by much of the crowd: for instance, the question and answer session after the speech was dominated by Homocon attendees grilling her on her position on a range of issues, including whether opposition to same sex marriage was really in line with the conservative principles of limited government and whether she personally believes that homosexuality is a choice -- a question she declined to answer. "
Coulter, you are on the wrong side of history on this issue. And just because there are people in the media who continue to cover your idiotic, self-aggrandizing statements on this subject, it doesn't mean you have any credibility on it. You don't. You are mean-spirited and vicious. At some point in your wasted life, you will regret the pitiable inanities that dribble from that vulgar maw, and perhaps you'll come to your senses and beg forgiveness from those who are most assuredly your betters.
But I'm not holding my breath.
Oliver Willis blogged this as well.
FROM ANDREW SULLIVAN'S BLOG:
"In her speech on Saturday, Coulter says that "not only can gays be conservative, you pretty much have to be," because they are the "highest income demographic," because "gays are too stylish to work for the federal government," because radical Muslims want to execute them, and because "once [scientists] find the gay gene, guess who's getting aborted?"
This is the same Coulter, of course, who is comfortable with the word "faggot," wrote that Rick Santorum's comparison of gay sex to bestiality is an "indisputably true point," told an interviewer that sexually active gay men should "feel guilty about it," and mocked the "irritating lesbian" teenager in Tennessee who wanted to bring her girlfriend to senior prom."
