Won’t this just bash the left’s stereotype that Republicans are Gay Haters. Conservative Ann Coulter will speak at the New York City HOMOCON 2010 gathering for Conservative Gays.
While there are differences of opinion between straight and gay Conservatives, the fact is most understand that it is not our differences that matter as much as our similarities. The GOP is truly a big tent. And no, we are not all the same. Thank goodness for that! If we were all a bunch of mindless robots that all act the same and believe the same we would be, well, Democrats.
When it comes down to it, the tie that binds is an urge for smaller government and a fiscally responsible one that lets us make our own decisions.
From Daily Caller:
“I’m so tickled that she agreed to do it,” Jimmy LaSalvia, executive director of GOProud told The Daily Caller. “Think about it: She’s hilarious, she’s provocative and, honestly, our folks just love her.”
LaSalvia said Coulter was the only person the group asked to headline the party, and she immediately agreed.
“Of course I’ll do it,” Coulter wrote to GOProud when they asked her to join the event. “I’m the right-wing Judy Garland!”
GOProud used that quip to advertise the event, adding, “our gays are more macho than their straights!” which Coulter wrote in a 2005 article comparing liberals and conservatives.
Coulter took criticism from gay rights advocates in 2007, when she used an anti-gay slur in reference to then-presidential candidate John Edwards. When asked about Coulter’s past comments, LaSalvia said that he would not give in to political correctness.
“This party is about fun. It’s not about placating to the PC crowd,” he said. “Listen, the no-fun police do enough in this world and we want to have a fun party.”
