Ann Coulter Calls WorldNet Daily Editor, “Swine”

This lady don’t mince her words.  :-)

Conservative pundit Ann Coulter responded today to the announcement that WorldNetDaily was dropping her as a speaker for one of their events, calling WorldNetDaily Editor Joseph Farah a “publicity whore” and a “swine.”. . . .

WND posted an email exchange between Coulter and Farah in their public announcement that she would be removed from the list of speakers. Coulter expressed anger that he quoted her from their private emails on the issue.

My, my, this guy is a real piece of work, first, he peddles the birther nonsense, then he throws a hissy fit because Coulter would speak to an audience of gay conservatives, then he publishes private e-mails.

In her e-mail to the Dally Caller, Coulter reminds them that her “fellow evangelicals — and I know lots and lots of ‘em — – all think it’s great that I’m doing this. (of course, they know I’m not changing my mind on gay marriage even though I like gays.)

I’m presuming the Caller had her permission to post this missive that she acknowledged she wrote in a rush.  And she has evangelicals who think it’s great she’s speaking to gay conservatives!?!?  That really does upset the narrative now, doesn’t it?

And note how she says it’s possible to like gay people and oppose gay marriage.  Upsetting another narrative.

UPDATE:  Just received this note from Chris Moody at the Daily Caller, “Ms. Coulter did give us permission to use the email.”

  1. My gawd I’m so sick of this.
    I wasn’t a reader WND anyway, but I’ll make sure to actively avoid them now.

  3. Well, Ann did sort of peg Farah pretty close.

    I quit reading his site years ago precisely because of the drift towards the fringe.

  5. I quit reading WND back when they were trying to peddle (literally, as in selling books about it in their web store) this “Harry Potter is anti-Christian and Satanic” nonsense. So I can’t really boycott that site any more than I already am.

  6. I stopped visiting the site because of its constant denigration of homosexuals. It seems pathological to me. These conservatives are so stupid. Coulter should keep giving it to Farah. What a bastard!!

  7. Is this Ann Coulter’s Sistah Soljah moment?

    It’s getting harder to find conservatives who don’t have a rather nuanced view of gay rights. Well, maybe her views aren’t necessarily nuanced, but at least she appreciates dialogue and, it would seem, does not view homosexuality as one of the main threats to America. In between the WND and HRC it seems there are more and more people (e.g., Ann Coulter, Elton John) who are willing to look for common ground.

  9. It you are not for marriage equality — you don’t truly “like” gay people. This is more than a narrative — it is reality. It is that simple in 2010.

    People who like others and call themselves “friends” do not dole out scraps at the table and offer inferior relationship status.

    Stop denigrating yourself and have some self-respect.

  10. And how, Wayne, do you reach that conclusion?

    Comment by B. Daniel Blatt — August 18, 2010 @ 10:47 pm - August 18, 2010

  11. I reached this conclusion by using my brain. Anyone who advocates separate laws governing relationships — with one version clearly superior — is not a friend.

    How do you justify second class citizenship?

    Comment by Wayne Besen — August 18, 2010 @ 10:49 pm - August 18, 2010

  12. Have I mentioned that I LOVE Ann Coulter recently? Makes me wish I could go see her speak even more. And makes me feel silly for suggesting that GOProud reach out to the swine. Shoulda known it was just hate 4 publicity’s sake, but then again, like most people I dont read World Nuts Daily either.

  13. Never quite got how the absence of state recognition of our unions as marriage makes us second class citizens.

    Comment by B. Daniel Blatt — August 18, 2010 @ 10:50 pm - August 18, 2010

  14. State recognition is vital because we live in the state.

    Marriage confers both respect and rights. It is — and has long been recognized — as a key relationship and a fundamental right. To be denied this right is official, tax-payer funded governmental disapproval of our lives. It is unconstitutional.

    It also gives the nation’s official stamp of approval for people to look down on our relationships and have them viewed as inferior unions. And make no mistake, few people view civil unions the same way they view marriage.

    The goal of the gay rights movement and activists should be to abolish all legal prohibitions and restrictions against LGBT people. In the eyes of the law, there should be nothing differentiating gay from straight people. When this happens, we can all retire.

    You mean like the liberal left?

    Comment by ThatGayConservative — August 18, 2010 @ 10:58 pm - August 18, 2010

  16. The absence thereof may make you feel like a second class citizen, Wayne, but I sure don’t feel like one.

    Though I do feel that way sometimes when i come out as a conservative in gay circles. :-)

    I agree that the state should abolish all laws against gay people, but do understand those who see marriage as an institution defined by sexual difference. After all it’s been that way for a long time, a long time.

    And personally, I don’t need the state’s approval to give my relationship meaning. If I do find a man with whom I want to spend the rest of my life and he wants to call our union marriage, then married we shall be, no matter what the state tells us.

    But, I won’t feel second class if I don’t have a slip of paper from the state calling me married. Nor do I think that my friends would treat my beloved any differently than they would if the state called him my husband.

    Indeed, I have met many an individual who treats his gay friends with dignity and respect and honors their relationships while opposing state recognition of same-sex marriage. Perhaps, they’re wrong on this issue, but they do like gay people, well, at least the ones they know.

    Comment by B. Daniel Blatt — August 18, 2010 @ 11:07 pm - August 18, 2010

  17. Exactly. The liberal left should be held to the same standard as conservatives. Actually, they should be held to a higher standard because the left professes to be our friends and more frequently takes our money for political campaigns.

    By the way– congratulations on the number of conservatives supporting marriage equality of late. I think this is a wonderful development that will hopefully move those who are timid on the left to do the right thing.

    It is exciting to see conservatives do what is moral and just on this issue. This is precisely why we should support them and not give people on the left or right loopholes by calling them “friends” when they do not support true and full equality.

    Comment by Wayne Besen — August 18, 2010 @ 11:12 pm - August 18, 2010

  18. All the left does is throw scraps and Gay Inc. eagerly devours them while pointing to their massuhs as their BFF. And, of course, every body else is the racist, sexist, bigot homophobes rather than the people who profess their love by treating them like SHIT on a daily basis.

  20. It you are not for marriage equality — you don’t truly “like” gay people. This is more than a narrative — it is reality. It is that simple in 2010.

    Stop denigrating yourself and have some self-respect.

    Oy vey. Wayne, it is YOU that needs to develop some self respect. You are pretending you are something you are not. And people who have to lie to themselves about what they are do not do so out of self-respect.

    You call it marriage equality, but you are asking for everyone in the world to call your relationship equal to a relationship it is undeniably NOT equal to.

    1. Men and women are not interchangeable. If they were, you wouldn’t be gay, you’d be bi. Everyone would be bi. If they were, the people who tell you are gay because you havent met the right woman yet would be right.

    2. Every human life on planet Earth comes throughout ALL of history comes from heterosexuality. NONE have ever or will ever come from homosexuality.

    Every life in the history of the world is NOT equal to zero lives.

    3. EVERY heterosexual relationship contains a man AND a woman, a person from EACH of the sexes, a role model for EACH of the sexes, and NO homosexual relationships do.

    These are not meaningless differences, like the amount of melanin in a persons skin, these are enormously consequential differences that mean the difference between life and never having existed to every human being on the planet

    And yet YOU feel a need to pretend that your relationship is equal to that????

    And you have the gall to tell OTHER people to develop some self respect.

    Excuse me, but you’re in blatant psychological denial of BASIC scientific facts, and of who and what you are! You havent even faced up to the incontrovertible fact that you are different. Fundamentally, consequentially different!

    Denial and delusion may pass for self-respect in your world, but in reality they remain denial and delusion.

    Youre here, youre queer, get used to it!

  22. Marriage confers both respect and rights.

    Did you mean traditional marriage between one man and one woman?

    In the USA, we do not permit plural marriages. We do not permit bigamy. We do not permit child marriage. We do not permit close kin to marry. We do not permit gays to marry.

    If Marriage confers respect shouldn’t we have to respect the wishes of two children who wish to marry?

    I have yet to see a compelling argument for why gays should marry. I will cede the right to civil union in order to clear up certain tax, inheritance, next of kin problems. But for some reason, gays can not explain why marriage is necessary.

    Somehow, the debate always gets down to “equality” for gays but not the bigamists or the plural marriage crowd or children, etc. Why should there be a special “equality” for a man or a woman who can already marry someone of the opposite sex?

    Comment by heliotrope — August 19, 2010 @ 9:49 am - August 19, 2010

  23. Rather than saying “Not equal’ which implies some judgement of worth I would personally ammend that to say “Not the same as”. It isn’t the same thing. I have absolutely no issues with gays/homosecxuals/DIrrefently orriented people’ (Whatever term doesn’t get me in trouble) getting all of the civil trappings of marrige: The legal arrangements et al. Fine. But it is not the government’s place to call it the religious institution fo Marrige. That part should be between the church or religious institution invvoled and the individuals involved.

    Comment by Ryan — August 19, 2010 @ 10:04 am - August 19, 2010

  24. “Marriage” IS between “a man and a woman”. “Marriage” is NOT between “two people in love”.

    There have been several books about same sex unions in history. Look up John Boswell. I contend that it is a failure for whoever the so-called leaders of the Gay community are for not coming up with our own institution. Instead, it is just easier to play the whiney victim and and go all shrill about gay marriage, which of course is going to meet a huge amount of pushback. Let alone the whiney victim role not winning any support… Why keep hitting ourselves in the head? Insanity is doing the same things over and over and expecting a different result.

    As if the USA is under sharia law, we have it so bad… Puhleeeez….

    Be that as it may, it is too late now. The Gay left is seemingly too entrenched in victimhood and wound too tightly. However, B. Dan is right. You can get married all day long. No one is stopping you from committing to your partner. Having the State recognize you legally is another issue. Someone had coined the phrase “equal except marriage” which was a cogent, rational argument that could be accomplished.

    Need to drop the hysteria and whining and get rational and intelligent (and dare I say — loving) about it. That is the only way to win.

    Comment by The Other Peter H — August 19, 2010 @ 10:14 am - August 19, 2010

  25. I agree with Ryan’s comment at 10:04 and would only add that even if and when gay marriage comes about as a legal institution, it’s still going to be a joke (at best) to the vast majority of people. When even uber-liberal politically correct shows like ‘Family Guy’ are packed with gay jokes, it’s a pretty big clue that no matter how much straight liberals say they love and support you, you’re still a joke to them. And you always will be.

  27. To those fighting for gay rights, Powell* said, any step forward helps because it increases dialogue and people’s comfort levels.

    “Contact makes things less scary, makes it more comfortable, and the more comfort you have the less opposition you’re going to have,” he said.

    http://www.cnn.com/2010/US/08/19/same.sex.marriage.global.fight/

    As I come closer to the BIG Five O, I know all to many folk that have had poking fun at the ‘MOs’ — and when SS couples get recognition, I am sure that jokes will continue, just as people with other inclinations to make fun of other folk, sporting of so clever captions.

    But SSM is not isolated to just our little haven of the USA. It’s global.

    I agree with BDB, a piece of paper with a government stamp is not going to elevate any relationship. . .

    I’ve learned that it’s not what you have in your life, but who you have in your life that counts.

  28. The Coulter/Farah catfight over GOPROUD’s Homocon is just another step to more conversations. That’s a great thing!

    Porno Pete To Ann Coulter: Give Your GOProud Money To Anti-Gay Hate Groups

    “We at AFTAH have an idea: how about if Coulter donates her GOProud speaking fee to two worthy pro-family organizations whose mission (we hope) Coulter agrees with more than that of the phony ‘conservatives’ over at GOProud, who put ‘gay rights’ above traditional values. Here are two wonderful groups that could benefit from GOProud’s cash (via Coulter):

    * Elaine Donnelly’s Center for Military Readiness, which has led the way in battling President Obama’s reckless plan to homosexualize the U.S. military in a time of war (GOProud supports the Democrat-led effort to repeal the ban on open homosexuals in the military)

    * Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays and Gays (PFOX) — this worthy yet perpetually underfunded organization stands up for the rights of former homosexuals — who regularly get demonized and sometimes bullied by the supposedly “tolerant” Homosexual Activist Lobby.

    “If Coulter insists on going forward with the GOProud speech — even though the organization supports many of the same homosexual-agenda goals of other ‘gay’ activist groups, then maybe she can make it count for some good by helping to sustain the noble work of these two fine organizations.” – Porno Pete LaBarbera, writing from his dildo-strewn basement dungeon in suburban Chicago.

  31. Hi Guys! I am very saddened over this. We need to respond because I have never felt a victim of bigotry ever before until NOW.

    Michelle Bachmann is among the speakers. These people need to be informed that we cannot allow the GOP to move forward with this nasty taint on their names — along with these crazy birthers.

    Michelle Bachmann and Alan Keyes are the two main ones….we need to send out e-mails to these people. This Farah is a nut AND is a birther. This does not help with independents.

  32. Wayne Besen tries to use the law to force people to respect him and his relationship because neither he or his relationship will earn it in any other fashion.

    Mainly because Besen and his “Truth Wins Out” organization go around making statements like these.

    Actually, Bob, most “reasonable” people, if we’re using the word with a respect for its root word, “reason,” agree that there is no evidence for God’s existence, and thus no rational REASON to believe that any god or gods have determined ANYTHING, much less morality.

    Comment by Evan Hurst — May 27, 2010 @ 7:13 pm

    Hahahahaha, um. Dude. Seriously? No one in the history of the universe has ever been able to prove that the idea of “gods,” which have always been used to control populations, ever existed. It’s a ridiculous idea, created by uneducated nomads from thousands of years ago.

    They all rank “10″ because they’re all retarded and none of them can be proven by any human who’s ever lived.

    Comment by Evan Hurst — May 29, 2010 @ 4:29 am

    Bob. That means your god is a weak minded little bitch who changes his mind and is definitely NOT eternal or omnipotent. He’s merely a reflection of humanity’s most disgusting instincts.

    Grow the hell up.

    Comment by Evan Hurst — May 31, 2010 @ 4:20 am

    Of COURSE, their idea of god is as a serial rapist. Fundamentalist religious people ARE essentially battered wives. They just act it out on a grander scale without such visible bruises. The really screwed up thing is that their abuser is an imaginary friend.

    But it’s a rapist just the same.

    Comment by Evan Hurst — May 31, 2010 @ 4:22 am

    Ben, everything you said was spot on. Bob’s idea of “god” is a moral reprobate, and a child at that. I wouldn’t worship a sniveling ass like that if you paid me.

    Comment by Evan Hurst — May 31, 2010 @ 4:25 am

    And then we’ve already seen the language that Truth Wins Out and Besen endorse when speaking of other people with whom they disagree politically.

    Is it any surprise why Besen insists he cannot get “respect”? His behavior is disrespectable. But rather than acknowledge that his behavior is what causes the lack of respect extended to him, he insists that his sexual orientation causes him to act in this fashion. He is a coward and an inferior individual who takes no responsibility for his own behavior and instead hides behind his minority status. No wonder he whines and cries that government should give him things to which he is not entitled solely because he is a minority.

  35. GP, I believe you are referring to this and to this, not to mention his regular mocking of GOProud.

    You can also throw in Besen’s obvious bigotry of and hatred towards any sort of conservative or anyone with whom he disagrees.

    Meanwhile, while it’s entertaining to watch Besen rant about unqualified psychiatrists and psychologists pushing babble, he has nothing to say about the endorsed and supported positions of psychiatrist John Kruse and the Association of Gay and Lesbian Psychiatrists that dressing children as sexual slaves and taking them to a sex fair to “show off” in front of masturbating and naked adults is an “educational experience” and that anyone who disagrees with it is “close-minded” and homophobic.

She is such a dear and loves Lifetime. Sad to hear you are so familiar with such touching sentiment but I guess as a single parent you must have the time and need the inspiration from Lifetime reruns to help you with your parenting skills.

    It’s kind of interesting. People like rusty whine and cry about “all the children in foster care who need parents”…..and then ridicule those like V the K who actually are willing to put their time, effort, and money into being parents for those children.

    After all, gays and lesbians like rusty know that children are just props to drag to rallies and toys to dress up for sex fairs to show off to your friends, right? They just can’t comprehend why anyone like V would actually CHOOSE to be a parent.

  41. I just interviewed Joseph Farah about this whole thing and he made it clear that he doesn’t want gays (or anyone that touched us) near “his” convention about taking back America. It was surreal to be called an abomination, but he did it without so much as a second thought. This was after he tried to cancel because of a “family” emergency. What was it? He found out I was a homo. But I’ll play that interview and then talk to GOProud’s Jimmy LaSalvia. We’ll see who is more debauched.
