RIP WorldNetDaily

Via The Daily Caller: World Net Daily drops Ann Coulter from conference over speech to gay conservative group.

Recently, gay conservative group, GOPROUD, announced Coulter would headline HomoCon next month in New York City.  This announcement was a very big deal, but I don’t see how anyone who actually knows anything about Ann Coulter could have been surprised.  She’s just cool like this.  I hope Kathy Griffin doesn’t find out about it.  She’ll have a stroke.  DO NOT GO AND TELL KATHY GRIFFIN ABOUT THIS JUST SO SHE’LL HAVE A STROKE.  That wouldn’t be nice, and it would probably get her another Emmy.

Anyhoops, WorldNetDaily (yes, they still exist) is pissed.  So pissed they’ve dropped Coulter from their shindig next month in Miami.  That’s right, they’re punishing Coulter for hanging out with gays by disinviting her from their non-gay party in MIAMI (Miami is known for having lots of gay people).    Why:

“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 WND Chief Executive Officer Joseph Farah. “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.”

Under “What We Believe” GOPROUD’s website states, “We are Republicans and conservatives who believe in limited government, individual liberty, free markets, a strong national defense and a confident foreign policy. We believe that every individual should be equal under the law.”

Color me radical and unconservative.  It’s one thing to be against gay marriage.  Many conservatives are against gay marriage for a variety of reasons, some of them are even related homosexuality.  But WorldNetDaily seems to just be against gay people.  Much like the Ground Zero Mosque (Park 51 hates it when you call it Ground Zero Mosque, so be sure to call it that every time), WorldNetDaily has every right to drop Ann Coulter for any stupid reason they want, and I still have the right to express my opinion that they are homophobic dinosaurs and big jerkfaces. 

You know what I would do if I was a gay conservative?  Keep my mouth shut.  Who would want to deal with what they do?  Unless you were a sincerely concerned, patriotic American that thought the hardship was worth it.  I don’t know if I would have the guts.

Hmm, I’d like to go into how great the gay conservatives I’ve gotten to know are, but there’s no way to do it without sounding patronizing.  Instead, I offer you a first hand account from my friend, Trev, reconciling his sexuality and his politics.  Gaystapo be damned!  And like all human beings, gay and straight, Trev has a lot of interests, including his important work as a griffin advocate.

(If I remember correctly, Trev is to the right of me on gay marriage.  It’s hard when conservatives aren’t predictable isn’t it?)

    If they were true conservatives, they would not have a special group just for gays. This whole ‘gay conservative group’ thing is the kind of crap liberals pull – let’s highlight our differences and drive us all further apart! If they want to be gay, that’s fine – whatever – but I don’t understand why a special interest group is even necessary if their agenda is exactly like every other conservative’s agenda. I think they’re leftist infiltrators acting like conservatives. If that makes me a homophobe, then so what. I really don’t care.

    Yes, they are definitely Boobs. As such, I fear the Snark is beyond their feeble mental capacities.

    I can tell.

    Do you think women that belong to conservative groups for women are liberal plants too?

    I admire any Gay person for being openly conservative as they subject themselves to the ugly scorn from extremists like WND. I also admire people like you and Ann for standing up and taking the heat.

    It’s way past time to let go of non sense like this – our country is in shambles and the priority for conservatives has to be unity if we are to take back America.

      “It’s way past time to let go of non sense like this – our country is in shambles and the priority for conservatives has to be unity if we are to take back America.”

      Exactly.
