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


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. Something that never seems to get mentioned by people like Coulter: According to the 2010 Kinsey Report, the vast majority anal and oral intercourse is enjoyed by heterosexuals.

  2. She's consistent.

    Look, if you are going to have the state/fed control aspects of personal choice, you'd better be prepared for the ramifications and precedents set...

    I value my freedom. And I value most people's freedom more than they value it.

    The reality is, that your devaluing of your own freedom devalues my freedom.

    Freedom isn't just doing whatever it is you want, it's taking responsibility for what you do. When you do things that hurt yourself, and pretend that the world owes you for your own bad decisions, you've lost my respect.

    Coulter is good at one thing : getting gay people really angry so that they say inconsistent and defensive things. You're playing her game. Stop it. Agree with her, she's correct.

    For instance, I have no issue whatever with banning gay bathhouses so long as we also ban straight dating sites and straight bars and straight sex clubs. Let's be consistent like she is pretending to be, but more so, with a lot less hypocrisy.

  3. Even a stopped clock is right twice a day.

  4. But Ann Coulter is like a clock that's been stopped, broken down into little tiny pieces and then run over by a train. She's never right. Ever.

  5. As someone who goes to bathhouses as I hate smokey bars, like a clean area and be able to know exactly what I am getting into, I am perfectly healthy and never any diseases.
    Bathhouse does not = hiv.
    They can be clean, you are in a safe area and be smart. No different from being in a bed.

  6. Can she just fall into a cement mixer already? She at least be useful!

  7. Whatever come out of her mouth, we pay dearly. That's not including the density of the Carbon Dioxide she's been expelling from her polluted lungs!!

  8. She is an idiot and a c@nt, but her point in this case is fair, though poorly stated.

    HIV is concentrated among gay men because of a) high levels of promiscuity relative to the rest of the population, and b) un-safe sex practices.

    Both of those behaviors are choices on the part of the individuals involved and they should be at least partially responsible for the consequences that may come from them, including paying for their own HIV treatments.....or having their insurance rates raised.....the same way that people who smoke have to pay higher insurance premiums....or people with a bad driving record have to pay higher insurance premiums.

    Society should not have to pay for your irresponsibility.

  9. up next:
    "Why should I pay for the healthcare of someone who made the lazy choice to not get a high-paying job before they developed cancer?"

    "why should i pay for some girl's leukemia treatments just because her parents work minimum-wage jobs and were irresponsible and didn't think to only have a child if they worked better jobs?"

    but hey - it's Coulter on Fox News. i'd expect nothing less than intellectual-dishonesty with a side order of compassionless smug.

  10. This is typical of right wing media: The host or article starts with a false premise (Here, Geraldo starts by making the false claim that Bloomberg will ban the sale of tobacco) and then the whole discussion revolves around this false premise that never gets corrected, with false parallels made of "what it would look like if we did the same thing to liberals."

    Bloomberg's proposed law would keep tonacco put of the tempting sight of kids in establishments they frequent. Adults would ask for the product to receive it. Stores dealing primarily in tobacco sales would be exempt.

    Someone should have corrected Geraldo on that and then should have brought to Coulter's attention that for her parallel to other activities to be legit, those activities would not be "banned" but would likewise be sold upon request by adults only.
    Sex is obviously ALREADY not allowed to visibly go on in the middle of a store where kids are present, and it is not allowed for sale in New York City.
    For there to be a parallel, she would either have to suggest that tobacco not be allowed to be used in front of others who haven't consented to see it in public, or that tobacco sales end entirely and that its use be confined to very specific adult-only, behind-closed-doors venues.

    Tobacco has a long way to go to be under the same legal sanctions as those she seems to pretend have no sanctions.

    This entire discussion (like so much right-wing media) is completely bogus.

  12. Rick there is a little bit more to the reasons why gay men have higher rates of HIV than the ones you listed. Straight men can be just as promiscuous as gay men, and they are less likely to use condoms. What works in their favor is that fact that there far more straight people to choose from which decreases the chance that they will come into contact with someone infected with HIV. Also the type of sex we have puts us as greater risk. Receptive anal sex, the primary means of sexual activity of gay men, is the high risk sexual activity for HIV transmission.

  13. That should be highest risk.

  14. Her point was really valid- IN 1985.Alas, the concept of tolerance for anyone else living in the world, and "Paying for YOUR irresponsibility" always plays really well with cranks on both sides of the political spectrum. This beast speaks of hate, dressed up in responsibility.Plain and simple. It is a lesson that any Narcissist intent on self-validation always finds attractive, the Gays and Straights alike.

  15. no. really what is it that ann coulter does for a living? what is her contribution to society?

    we know she has a mouth, and apparently knows how to use it. but other than that what does the blonde bombshell bimbo really do?

  16. Ann is mad because no one is willing to pay for his sex-change surgery. Just keep on tuckin', Ann!

  17. I understand your point ANN. But wouldn't treating eating disorders come under that same category, ANN? Look what you've done to your body ANN. Don't you think you'll be dealing with health related issues at some point, if you already aren't? Of course, treatment for the mental illness associated with eating disorders is very costly to us all too... ANN.
    What a sad ugly person ANN is.

  22. Ann Coulter has probably caused some illness and death in her life. Why should we pick up the tab? She should suffer the same punishment she would inflict on others.

  23. The ugliest drag queen is prettier than Ann Coulter. Inside she is a cesspool. I have nothing nice to say about Ann Coulter. She is as significant to this world as lice.

  24. alright......this has really pushed my buttons........what about smoking, drinking alcohol, morbid obesity, prescription drug that enough

  25. That c*nt will say anything to keep her name in the news. If the Dems were in power, she'd turn against the Repugnicans just to make a buck.

    And what really gets me is that I recently read that Bill Maher is banging the whore!
    My esteem for him plummeted like my c*ck would at the sight of her!
