With Allies Like These…

As long as we’re bringing up Confederate Americans and other oxymorons, I’ve got this hilarious story about gay conservatives c/o Shakesville.

GOProud, which describes itself as representing “gay conservatives and their allies”, invited Ann Coulter to speak at their event. Here’s the poster:

That’s not the funniest part.

After word got out, Ann was disinvited from an event hosted by conservative cacophonic orchestra of nutzoid, WorldNetDaily.

WND says that Coulter’s decision to speak at Homocon, an event sponsored by a gay Republican organization called GOProud, disqualifies her from speaking at their “Taking America Back National Conference.”

“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,” WND editor and CEO Joseph Farah said. “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.”

That’s not the funniest part.

The funniest part came when Coulter stuck up for gay conservatives like the ally she is:

“They hired me to give a speech, so I’m giving a speech. I do it all the time,” she said. “I speak to a lot of groups and do not endorse them. I speak at Harvard and I certainly don’t endorse their views. I’ve spoken to Democratic groups and liberal Republican groups that loooove abortion. The main thing I do is speak on college campuses, which is about the equivalent of speaking at an al-Qaida conference. 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.”

She doesn’t really like queers, but by God she’ll take their money. Just like Judy Garland!

Now that’s funny.
