Ann Coulter Won't Pick Up the Tab for Sodomites, Gay Bathhouses: VIDEO

COULTER

A Geraldo at Large discussion about Bloomberg's various public initiatives turned into an Ann Coulter tirade on sodomy, AIDS and gay batthouses, Mediaite reports:

Coulter was not having any of it. She tore into Bloomberg by suggesting we just be done with it already and "have a death penalty for smokers," before changing the subject to the negative behaviors that liberals are unwilling to stigmatize, such as illegitimate birth.

Geraldo Rivera's efforts to corral the segment away from unwed teen pregnancy were for naught. When Roth made the claim that bans on various unhealthy activities are warranted because "we pick up the tab" for other's bad habits, Coulter countered that "I think you're going to have to do something about the gay bathhouses."

"AIDS is very expensive, and if I'm paying for it, how about discouraging that behavior?" she explained.

Later, while clarifying that she doesn't actually want to ban homosexual activity, she told Roth, "If you're argument is 'Smoking: we all have to pay,' then why not 'Sodomy: we all have to pay.'" She told Roth that a consistent position on "nannying" would require her to be "anti-bathhouses" in addition to anti-smoking.

  1. I'm sure plenty of people have been made ill by coming into contact with Ann Coulter. Perhaps we should ban her.

  4. Oh, dear God, how does anyone take Ann Coulter as a serious human being?

  5. @Sam, you sure do. (I live outside US.) But then it's globalism everywhere.

  6. Dear Ann,

    We liberals are generous to a fault. We'll happily pick up your abortion tab as an alternative to dealing with the criminally insane children you'd raise.

  7. We should outlaw gay bars because of AIDS. Geraldo let that one go. He should have pressed her on that. She needs to go away.

  8. Well of course Ann Coulter is anti-batthouse.

    *reads rest of article*

    Oh, BATHHOUSE. That's very different.

    Never mind.

  9. Herpes, we all have to pay. Gonorrhea, we all have to pay. We better outlaw straight sex.

  10. No way in hell I'm going to watch a video featuring that whore-of-a-woman.

    So all gay people = gay bathhouse? What is this, 1913? Idiotic simpleton.

  11. I hate to say it but in a convoluted way she has a point. We give incentive to get HIV in NYC. The psa's have hot, healthy young guys saying how great it is to be poz. The health care providers give preferential treatment to HIV+ people. Your AIDS meds are covered by state programs but you have to pay for PEP to prevent you from getting it.

  12. If in the future we find out that bleaching your hair and using too much mascara causes cancer, will Ann agree to let us execute her? I hope she will be consistent.

  13. Poor Ann. I fear for her sanity - as she becomes more irrelevant, her desperation to stay in the public eye increases. I predict self-immolation or a very public torrid affair with Sarah Palin for her to land any more TV appearances.

  14. at the ratings whore.

  15. If being a hateful leathery c*nt was illegal Ann Coulter would get the death penalty.

  16. Axis Annie -always trying to stay relevant.

  17. Coulter's argument is simply another example of the common fallacy that "taxpayer money" is somehow different from the money in the pocket or purse of any individual. The simple fact is that we all pay for everything, from the government's latest drone, to Ann Coulter's ear rings, to any one person's health care. That is the simple fact that grows directly from money being a medium of exchange.

  18. I'm sure she has to pay for sodomy. Normal people get it for free

  19. Giving Ann Coulter media coverage: we all have to pay.

  20. Gay bathhouses? What next? A tirade against disco and Gloria Vanderbilt jeans?

  21. oh missy ann get over yourself and go climb back under that bridge you came from and stop giving blonds in cheap jewelery a bad name

  22. I abhor that woman, but she does have a point. When the a "we all pay for it" justification is used, that argument can be cross-applied to various things. Bloomberg used the same argument for the soda law, and rational minds can agree that bathhouses are (or at least historically were) where gay men spread HIV and other STIs. Treating these diseases is expensive, and taxpayers bear that expense.

    What I do disagree with is her choice to use bathhouses as her example. There are plenty of bigger fish to fry, and there was no need to go after gays. Then again, had she talked about abstinence-only education's burden on taxpayers, she wouldn't have galvanized the viewership; gay-bashing is certainly better at that.

  24. Yeah, just like "our" money is used to pay for all those mobility scooters the Tea Party codgers use to get to protests against spending on health care, so what's her point?

    Posted by: Caliban | Mar 25, 2013 11:24:13 AM


  25. While gay bathhouses aren't our finest contribution to society, I often need to point out to conservatives that every town larger than Mayberry has a prostitution district where heterosexuals engage in irresponsible sexual activity with strangers... often in public, in alleys, in parks, etc...

    Clearly Coulter was making the point that the ninny Bloomberg is all about transfats, soda, and of course violating the Second Amendment but he's apparently not interested in bathhouses which have a track record of spreading disease at record pace.
