Bryan 'only gays were savage enough for Hitler' Fischer: Ann Coulter was simply FABULOUS!

by Jeremy Hooper

GOProud head Christopher Barron may not care what the supposed monolith that is "the gay left™" thinks:

But maybe he will care about this, the praise that uber-incendiary voice of the right, Bryan "homosexuals in the military gave us...six million dead Jews" Fischer," is heaping on Ann Coulter for her appearance at Saturday night's GOProud event:

Ann took [GOProud attendees] 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.
...
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 her hosts.

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.

Ann Coulter gets her “Warrior Princess” badge back [AFA]

This empirical evidence is simply undeniable. Bryan Fischer, someone who deals in some of the most sweepingly homo-hostile rhetoric in the land, has read the well documented reports from Coulter's GOProud speech, and has determined that her gig served his cause, not gays' interests. Keep in mind: This is a man who has said "homosexuals should be disqualified from public office," who has called on Christian conservatives to breed gays and progressives out of existence, who has declared that "Every time an HIV-infected male has sex with another male, it's essentially the same as plunging an infected heroin needle into his arm. He's passing on a potential death sentence, just as the Taliban seeks to do on a foreign battlefield," who has said only gays were savage enough for Hitler, who has compared gays to heroin abusers, who has directly compared laws against gay soldiers to those that apply to bank robbers, and who has invoked a Biblical story about stabbing "sexually immoral" people with spears, saying we need this kind of action in modern day (plus much more, if you can believe it). And yet Fischer has heard what "the right wing Judy Garland had to say to Barron and his peeps -- and Fischer determined that it was good.

So don't give a shit about "the gay left™," Chris? Frankly, who cares? Your much bigger organizational problem lies not with shit, but rather with the bull itself. And countering that bull -- Coulter's and Fischer's shared bull -- should be our common concern, regardless of placement along the contrived left ---> right political spectrum!
