Conservative author/speaker Ann Coulter has been dumped as a keynote speaker at WorldNetDaily’s upcoming “Taking America Back” national conference.
Why? Because of her plans to also speak at HOMOCON 2010, a Sept. 25th event sponsored by the homosexual Republican group GOProud.
Ann Coulter is promoted on a poster for the upcoming gay event with the quote, “Our gays are more macho than their straights.” She is also referred to on the poster as the “Right Wing Judy Garland.”
Joseph Farah, editor and chief executive officer of WND, says the decision to dump Ann from their conservative conference was tough. But he just had to do it.
Farah also asked: “Do you not understand you are legitimizing a group that is fighting for same-sex marriage and open homosexuality in the military – not to mention the idea that sodomy is just an alternate lifestyle?” Coulter responded: “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!).” But Farah sees her speaking at HOMOCON as aiding GOProud’s ongoing infiltration of the conservative political arena. “Earlier this year, GOProud was permitted to sponsor the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, the biggest event of its kind,” Farah says. “This bad decision resulted in consistently conservative groups dropping sponsorship and withdrawing from participation – much to their credit. GOProud is about infiltration of the conservative movement and dividing it from within with twisted and dangerous ideas way out of the mainstream of American public opinion.” He supports her speaking to people with whom she disagrees on college campuses. He says he does it too. “But if you see the way GOProud is exploiting its coup in getting Ann Coulter to speak to its HOMOCONevent,” Farah says. “You begin to understand what a mistake this is for a conservative icon like Coulter.” Follow Zap2it and Elizadish on Twitter and Zap2it on Facebook for the latest TV, movie and celebrity news.
