Ann Coulter Tells Roomful of Booing Students that Gays Can Marry — 'a Person of the Opposite Sex': VIDEO

Coulter

Ann Coulter was booed by a roomful of Libertarian students from the International Students for Liberty Conference in Washington, D.C. when she brought her uniquely disgusting worldview to a debate with John Stossel.

Asked Stossel: “Why can’t gays get married like straights do?”

Spat Coulter: "Well, they can. They have to marry a member of the opposite sex."

"This is another one where you’re just sucking up to liberals when there are big fights we really need to be having.  Marriage is the most important institution to civilize young people. I want to make divorce a lot more difficult too. Liberals want to destroy the family so that you will have one loyalty - and that is to the government."

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. Anne is great...she knows exactly what to say to rile everyone up..she makes headlines...i actually dont believe she really thinks or believes in anything that she says. She is a provocateur. Not a funny or particularly witty one...i mean yes she's basically a racist bigot as well but these days there is an entire section of the media where you can make a career being one of those. Seriously what else would this awful woman do ? Who would employ the poor thing?

  2. @ MIKE :
    Great question.......what else can she do, other than being an anorexic racist provocateur ?

    I guess she is incapable of doing anything positive or of even holding diown a productive job like the rest of us.

  3. Coulter, please keep speaking for the GOP. Republicans are tearing themselves apart. Keep up your good work. In other words ... THANKS !!

    "You're comparing the intellectual abilities of Coulter with Rachel Maddow ?

    Seriously ?
    "
    Absolutely. I used to think that Maddow was sharp, but after awhile it became obvious that she is either a Progressive or playing one on TV.

  5. She says "Iraq was a magnificent war.." Why on earth to we re-distribute her nonsense. Publicity is all she is after and we keep giving it to her...

  6. Why are so many of the comments here juvenile insults about Coulter's appearance, body, or body parts? Your superiority is not showing.

    Racist? Based on what?

  9. "Marriage is the most important institution to civilize young people."

    Coulter has never been married. By her own reasoning, this explains why she's so uncivilized.

  10. I don't understand why everyone is in a snit because TR has posted an item about Ann Coulter. She may seem irrelevant and yesterday's news, but she is still very relevant to our enemies.

    Folks, we've won several battles in the last 4-5 years. But we have not won the war by any long shot. This is an ongoing fight and even though Ms. Coulter continues with her over-the-top uber-conservatism, she espouses views that still resonate with millions--repeat, millions--of Americans.

    Go ahead, roll your eyes. But in those incubators of social legislation, the states, the right-wing hold great sway. Michigan, Tennessee, Florida, Oklahoma, Iowa, Ohio, Pennsylvania, the Carolinas, Kentucky, and on and on. I'm sure you all get the idea.

    In those states, a woman's right to make her own medical decisions over the most intimate aspects of her personal life are being abridged almost daily. In those states, the ideal of marriage equality is scorned and practically unachievable and probably will not occur in those states within our lifetimes, unless the Supreme Court in the near future forthrightly and unequivocally declares that LGBT Americans are full and equal citizens. In those states, there are movements afoot to make divorce as hard to get as it was 100 years ago.

    Yeah, yeah, Ann Coulter is annoying, I get it. Ann has always gone out of her way to be provocative and outrageous. Yes, it garners her headlines. It even helps her sell bundles of her poorly-written, logic-challenged books. And, of course, her fawning fans in GoProud ululate at the sound of her voice or the very mention of her name.

    But, she knows of what she speaks. She is not isolated. She works the conservative circuit, the think tanks, the scholarly forums for current and future conservative thinking.

    None of you like it. I sure as hell don't like it. I, too, would like to think that her "brand" is fading, soon to be outmoded. But, it is not. Among millions of Americans, Ann speaks what they are thinking and feeling.

    Deal with it. It pays to continue to know who our enemies are and what they are thinking, if not planning legislatively.

    Remember, the war we've fought for so long against the still-powerful right-wing in order to achieve LGBT civil equality is NOT over. Not by a long shot, especially if one saw the ersatz "forum" on CNN the other day as to whether or not LGBT rights even qualify as civil rights.

    As a warrior grunt sergeant on an alien planet once said: Stay frosty.

  11. David Hearne, how long did it take you to realize that Maddow is a progressive? What tipped you off? Was it the fact that she routinely states that she's a progressive? Sharp!

    LOL

    Sorry, I meant to say "global warming immigration gun control sarcastic childish reality denying liar". Progressive just seemed to save some typing.

  15. hey David Hearne! Is today the day you put a face to your comments or is the day you continue to avoid doing so and use your fake aliases to troll? just curious.

  17. People like Coulter, Limbaugh, etc are not serious political commenters. They are entertainers. They entertain a minority of Americans who are happy to give them lots of money because clowns like Coulter and Limbaugh make them feel better about their wretched, worthless lives in Two Rivers, Mississippi where they stuff their faces non-stop with Chick-fil-A (deep-fried flour, sugar and butter) and develop type 2 diabetes.

  18. No wonder GOProud called her the conservative Judy Garland.

  19. I have to admit that sometimes the articles on Coulter, Bryan Fisher, Tony Perkins et. al. seem a little like, "Look! Some nitwit has taken a dump! Let me rub your nose in it!"

    Ann Coulter said something homophobic?! Well you could knock me over with a feather! What a shock.

  20. there's a very specific reason that the Coulter/Limbaugh types are so miserably bitter - for all their money, they're aware that the thrones they sit on are made of bulls**t and their loyal subjects are society's unfortunates.

    it's not impressive being the grand ruler of Plebeland.

  21. One way to deal with Coulter and the like is to ask them questions that they can't rebut without their stock answers. Instead of asking "Why can't gays marry like straights are able to?" the question should be "Why can't gays marry whom they love like straights are able to do?"

  22. I find this so typical of the right. They have no concept of love and never will.

  23. I think she needs to be on pills. What sane person, mid sentence, starts to yell?

  24. It's a tad noteworthy to point out she isn't married herself.

    They used to have bachelor taxes to encourage marriage, but what's really made marriage more equivocal is near income parity by women with men and declining birth rates. Poor women suffer the most from declining marriage rates but this has nothing to do with gay rights. This is all about button pushing and trying to take advantage of gay discrimination, not addressing declining marriage rates. Most divorce occurs well into a marriage after the kids have grown up, so by then the 'civilizing effects' should have taken place.

  25. I'm stunned.. she said something I agree with. (the bit about why government can't be removed from marriage: divorces, alimony, custody, etc).

    They really should rebrand themselves. Libertarians are benign anarchists ... republicans are facists who want corporations and religions to rule our government instead of our citizens.
