Everybody has been talking about the hate spewing out of Ann Coulter's mouth during her speech at the Conservative mecca/meeting, CPAC. Clearly, she's doing what she does best: talking trash that gets her attention and the adoration of the most hateful people in America.
I'm hesitant to give her the time of day or any attention at all. Heavens forbid I help propagate her vindictiveness. Let me just say that she's a hateful, worthless, person.
That being said, there is something that hasn't gotten any attention from her speech. After her now-famous Edwards/faggot comment, she said something even more interesting. She insisted that she and the Republicans weren't anti-gay, just anti-gay marriage.
In the comments that ensued, she basically said that, just like blacks, she couldn't believe that gays aren't Republicans. She said "gays make a lot of money and are victims of crime." And, that "Republicans are anti-tax and anti-crime."
Hmmmm.....was that a tacit endorsement of including gays, lesbians, and transgendered folks in hate crimes law? I think it is!
So, the real story is that the right wing devil herself has endorsed pro-gay legislation. She may have even inadavertantly suggested that she was in favor of the Employment Nondiscrimation Act.
Instead of giving her attention for her usual hatefulness, let's embrace her for coming around to support equal rights for the LGBT folks who she usually hates. Perhaps she'll find a way to put it into more clear terms in the future. Until then, I'll take what I can get from that usually worthless b****.
