Ann Coulter gets booed by a roomful of libertarians

Ann Coulter gets booed by a roomful of libertarians

Coulter was jeered for saying that gay people can get married, "They have to marry a member of the opposite sex" VIDEO

During a debate with Fox Business’ John Stossel, Ann Coulter got booed after reportedly calling libertarians “pussies” and saying that gay people can get married, “They have to marry a member of the opposite sex.”

Stossel was filming his show at the International Students for Liberty Conference in Washington, D.C., with around 1,400 libertarian students in attendance, according toMediaite’s Andrew Kirell. When Stossel brought up the drug war, Coulter scoffed, and reportedly (though it was bleeped out) said, “This is why people think libertarians are pussies.”


She continued:

We’re living in a country that is 70-percent socialist, the government takes 60 percent of your money. They are taking care of your health care, of your pensions. They’re telling you who you can hire, what the regulations will be. And you want to suck up to your little liberal friends and say, ‘Oh, but we want to legalize pot.’ You know, if you were a little more manly you would tell the liberals what your position on employment discrimination is. How about that? But it’s always ‘We want to legalize pot.’”

When Stossel asked Coulter: “Why can’t gays get married?” She replied: “Well, they can. They have to marry a member of the opposite sex.” She was heartily booed.

Oh yeah, she's a piece of work. She should be booed everywhere she goes, same with Rush, Hannity & Beck. Let's just put them on a boat, sail them to the Artic and say, 'Try depending on yourself, instead of mooching off the media for money' smile

[Edited 2/22/13 14:15pm]

crazy people alert:

Estimates of the size of LaRouche's movement have varied over the years; most say there is a core membership of 500–2000. The estimated 600 members in 1978 paid monthly dues of $24. Johnson wrote in 1983 that the Fusion Energy Foundation and National Democratic Policy Committee had attracted some 20,000 members, as well as 300,000 magazine subscribers.

A 1987 article by John Mintz in The Washington Post reported that members lived hand-to-mouth in crowded apartments, their basic needs—such as a mattress and pillowcase—paid for by the movement. They worked raising money or selling newspapers for LaRouche, doing research for him, or singing in a group choir, spending almost every waking hour together.

According to Christopher Toumey, LaRouche's charismatic authority within the movement is grounded on members' belief that he possesses a unique level of insight and expertise. He identifies an emotionally charged issue, conducts in-depth research into it, then proposes a simplistic solution, usually involving restructuring of the economy or national security apparatus. He and the membership portray anyone opposing him as immoral and part of the conspiracy.

The group is known for its caustic attacks on people it opposes and former members. In the past it has justified what it refers to as "psywar techniques" as necessary to shake people up; Johnson in 1983 quoted a LaRouche associate: "We're not very nice, so we're hated. Why be nice? It's a cruel world. We're in a war and the human race is up for grabs." Charles Tate, a former long-term LaRouche associate, told The Washington Post in 1987 that members see themselves as not subject to the ordinary laws of society: "They feel that the continued existence of the human race is totally dependent on what they do in the organization, that nobody would be here without LaRouche. They feel justified in a peculiar way doing anything whatsoever."

Glad to see John Stossel is spewing his nonsense to smaller audiences these days. What a tool.

Guess I picked a bad year to quit drinking...

TWO MORE REASONS:

1. Libertarians want to legalize weed on a federal level.

2. Libertarians want to legalize prostitution.

remember back when GOProud, the gay republican group, was championing coulter as a gay rights hero and literally gave her the title of "gay icon" as an award?

...bless their hearts.

You're joking, but you do know that's the big motivator for most people to identify themselves as libertarians, don't you? biggrin You just have to learn how to say "liberty", "violence", and "end the fed" a lot. lol

Coulter is a Phony...

She says outrageous things purely to mess with people and sell books.

She doesn't believe anything she says.

She is litterally best friends with Bill Maher and Al Franken...

And Al Franken, has done events with her, and claims that after she would spew her hateful rant at the crowd, she'd go backstage and die laughing.

Best not to take anything she says seriously.

Sure. They spew shitty lies and the morons that worship them (right wing tea baggers) see to it that they're rewarded for their sliminess. Sick.

Well they are paid. They're no different from left-wingers. They all get money talking about what they talk about. Neither side's totally innocent. I'm not a big fan of Ann Coulter either but it is what it is.
