GOProud Pays Lots Of Money To Be Demeaned By Homophobic Racist

09/26/10-by Bridgette P. LaVictoire
Homocon is exactly what Ann Coulter did yesterday. She conned a group of homosexuals to give her money while she demeaned them and went on in a very racist fashion. She apparently made a series of jokes and then went ahead and stated the predominantly wealthy conservative lesbians and gays that they should oppose marriage equality and said “I should warn you: I’ve never failed to talk gays out of gay marriage.” She then went on to parrot the usual run of why lesbians and gays should nto be allowed to get married including stating that “Marriage is not a civil right. You’re not black.” She also used the same logic as Justice Antonin Scalia about why lesbians and gays should not be allowed to get married in that the Fourteenth Amendment does not, according to her and the Justice, apply to anyone but African-Americans.

The Q&A session after her speech saw Coulter do her best to avoid answering whether or not barring marriage equality was in line with the Conservative principles of limited government, and whether or not she truly believes that homosexually is a choice. She did, however, call for an end to no-fault divorce laws.

In truth, most of the people at GOProud are fiscal conservatives rather than social conservatives and had expected Coulter, who has never been big on being a fiscal conservative in reality, to focus on fiscal issues rather than social issues. She went after sex education, including claiming that the Democrats wanted to teach five year olds about “fisting”, to which someone yelled “what’s wrong with fisting?” She suggested that GOProud should support anti-abortion groups, which are usually also vehemently anti-LGBT, because “as soon as they find the gay gene, you know who’s getting aborted.” She also talked about how parents don’t want their children learning about the “homosexual lifestyle.” Which has always begged the question- what are the differences between the gay and straight lifestyles other than the fact that most lesbians and gays can’t get pregnant in the back of the car during a one night stand.

Coulter also blamed the decline in marriage among African-Americans on welfare and “the subsidization of single parenting.” And, of course, on liberal child support laws. She also talked about civil rights being “only for the blacks” and “Blacks must be looking at the gays saying, ‘Why can’t we be oppressed like that?’” She made the last in reference to the amount of wealth that is supposedly in the LGBT Community (which is a myth)

GOProud Executive Director Jimmy LaSalvia did state “I don’t agree with Ann Coulter about gay marriage, but there was a real conversation here. That’s what we’re trying to start. We want people to see that it isn’t ‘us versus them.’” However, as TPM stated “GOProud focuses strictly on federal issues which means that, institutionally, they don’t take a position on state policy issues like same sex marriage. Unlike the Log Cabin Republicans who exist, according to LaSalvia, to push from many of the same agenda items as the ‘gay left,’ GOProud seeks to redefine what are ‘gay’ issues and push for issues of the largest importance to the LGBT community.” Of course, so far, only LCR has been willing, of the two, to actually tackle any LGBT legal issues including Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.

LaSalvia did, however, state that his group had worked with Senators John Thune and Tom Coburn on such hot button LGBT issues as the ability for gun owners to carry concealed weapons over state lines and a “free market alternative” to healthcare reform. They stated that the latter would have benefitted LGBT people more, though one has to wonder just how much it would help the transperson who cannot afford any kind of transition care without state run healthcare due to insurance companies classifying all of it as ‘cosmetic’.

Of course, one has to wonder what the fiscal credentials of a group must be for them to waste money and time on someone who they all knew was homophobic and unwilling to support LGBT issues in any form.

    Let’s hope she’ll continue to make an ass of herself. Saves the rest of us from having to point it out if she’s doing a good job of it herself.
    Are GOProud really that desperate for people to come to their little events? Reminds me of the child at school who can find anyone else to be friends with them, so they”re forced to take up with the jerk or the troublemaker.

    Duh.  What were they expecting? Serves them right for having invited the source of pure evil.

    GOProud is not a real LGBT group. They are LGBT republicans, not the same thing. They should have known Coulter would do what she did. Every time she opens her mouth garbage falls out. They had it coming, and I don’t feel bad for them at all. The only result is that Coulter made an ass of herself AGAIN, and it once again demonstrates to the LGBT community that the GOP are not our friends no matter the circumstance or donations. They will happily take our money and spit on us, far worse than the dems do.

    D2Boston,

    The only people who seem to be hysterical are you and yours. Most of us are busting a gut laughing over the fact that you guys could not manage to fill a decent sized auditorium with your numbers and that you really did pay someone to get up before your group and demean you with homophobia and racism. Really, the only vapid ones are you, especially given that you guys really are going out of your way to bow to the people who would like to see you “converted” into heterosexuals. Sheesh, you guys will do anything for a buck, huh?
