I criticized Ann Coulter
last month when news surfaced that she had accepted an invitation to speak at
HomoCon 2010, a gathering of so-called conservative homosexuals. (They can’t
call themselves conservatives, for the simple reason that using the anal cavity
for sex is not a conservative value.)
You also will notice
that they have no hesitation calling themselves “homos,” as in “HomoCon,” but
take umbrage if anybody else uses their own chosen monicker.
I did say that Ann might
surprise us all and take the homosexuals straight on, but guessed that a desire
not to upset her hosts, who surely paid a princessly sum to entice her into
speaking and appearing on all their promotional posters, would likely prevent
her from getting up in their business.
Well, I was wrong.
Ann took them straight
on and gave them some straight talk I doubt they were ready for. There is no
amount of sugar that will help this medicine go down.
According to the leftwing website Politico.com, she complimented the Christian
audiences before whom she speaks by telling these homosexuals that the people
who get her “gay jokes are gays.” Christians get them, she hinted, but “out of
sweetness they don’t laugh at the gay jokes.” Alas, she was suggesting, if only
Christians were as mean-spirited as everyone says they are! I have to leave my
gay jokes in the green room because those Christians are just too darned civil
and courteous and kind!
Then she let the air out
of the tires on the tired argument that homosexual marriage is the civil rights
issue of our day. Reminding them that blackness is an innate characteristic but
sexual behavior is a choice, same-sex marriage, she said pointedly, “is not a
civil right -- you’re not black.”
As Gen. Colin Powell
himself said, the comparison between homosexual behavior and race is
“convenient but invalid.” People are born black, but they are not born gay. And
many people who enter the homosexual lifestyle later leave it. So there are
plenty of ex-gays, but you will never meet an ex-black.
Then she punctured a
hole in the entire oppressed-minority argument by pointing out that homosexuals
are among the wealthiest demographic groups in the nation, again making the
civil rights argument utterly invalid.
Survey after survey has
revealed that homosexuals tend to be more highly educated than their straight
counterparts and have higher levels of income.
“Blacks must be looking
at the gays, saying, ‘Why can’t we be oppressed like that?’” said Coulter.
So Christians are too
tolerant to make fun of gays, homosexuals have no civil right to marry, and
homosexuals can’t claim oppressed minority status. This from the keynote
speaker at HomoCon, who got at least five figures to get right in the grill of
Anybody at HomoCon want
their money back?
And Ann, all is
forgiven. Humble pie has never tasted so sweet. You are no longer the “Joan of
Arc of homosexuality,” as I described you last month, you are now Daniella of
the Lion’s Den. Good on ya, lass.
