GOProud, the Republican homosexual activist organization whose leaders claim to be “conservative,” has announced Ann Coulter as its new honorary advisory council chair, a title Coulter recently carried with her in taping a television program for a “gay” cable network.
Coulter filmed the episode of “A-List Dallas” for Logo – a television channel owned by MTV and targeted at the “gay,” lesbian, bisexual and transexual, or GLBT, audience – along with GOProud Executive Director Jimmy LaSalvia.
“Ann and I had a great time with Taylor Garrett, a young, up-and-coming conservative fundraiser and ‘A-List Dallas’ cast member, at lunch yesterday in the gay mecca of West Hollywood,” boasted LaSalvia in a GOProud press release. “Ann and Taylor really hit it off, and we talked about a ton of issues ranging from the presidential race to illegal immigration and abortion. We even made time for a little girl talk about boys and dating!”
La Salvia continued, “We look forward to gay people everywhere getting a chance to hear about our organizations and hear from Ann Coulter – simply the smartest, funniest and most stylish woman in politics today. We thank Ann for agreeing to do this and for continuing her outspoken support for gay conservatives.”
Coulter, whose work appears weekly on WND, was announced as a member of the advisory board of GOProud earlier this summer.
The move came only weeks after officials with the Conservative Political Action Conference, or CPAC, announced they would no longer allow GOProud to participate as a sponsor of their conference and after Coulter’s controversial decision last fall to speak to GOProud prompted another conservative conference to withdraw its speaking invitation.
Coulter had been invited to speak at WND’s “Taking America Back National Conference” in Miami last year, but WND founder and CEO Joseph Farah withdrew the invitation because of her GOProud appearance.
“Ultimately, as a matter of principle, it would not make sense for us to have Ann speak to a conference about ‘taking America back’ when she clearly does not recognize that the ideals to be espoused there simply do not include the radical and very ‘unconservative’ agenda represented by GOProud,” said Farah then. “The drift of the conservative movement to a brand of materialistic libertarianism is one of the main reasons we planned this conference from the beginning.”
Asked whether her appearance would not legitimize GOProud’s agenda, which includes open homosexuality in the U.S. military and same-sex marriage, Coulter said: “That’s silly, I speak to a lot of groups and do not endorse them. … I’m sure I agree with GOProud more than I do with at least half of my college audiences. But in any event, giving a speech is not an endorsement of every position held by the people I’m speaking to.”
GOProud and Logo, however, have both issued statements implying Coulter’s partnership has, indeed, lent legitimacy to their causes.
“Opinions of Coulter aside, the boys of Dallas are certainly stepping it up with this surprising, and relevant, guest star,” a Logo news release trumpeted. “And while there are of course thousands of reasons to disagree with Coulter and her uber-conservative politics, it is incredibly refreshing to see someone in her position, and of such noted stature for her far right opinions, willing to reaffirm her GLB (T might be going out on a limb) support.”
