Conservative pundit Ann Coulter on Thursday insulted a group of student libertarians by calling them “pussies” for pushing for drug legalization and then found herself being booed when she insisted that LGBT people should only marry members of the opposite sex.
Fox Business host John Stossel on Thursday aired Coulter’s attempt to antagonize a crowd of about 1,400 libertarians at the recent International Students for Liberty Conference in Washington, D.C.
During the event, Stossel asked the conservative columnist if she agreed that “the drug war is a failure, get rid of it.”
“You libertarians and pot!” Coulter exclaimed. “Look, this is why people think libertarians are pussies. We’re living in a country that is 70 percent socialist, the government takes 60 percent of your money… And you want to suck up to your little liberal friends and say, ‘Oh, but we want to legalize pot.’”
“You know, if you’re a little more manly you would tell them what your position on employment discrimination is,” she continued. “How about that? But it’s always ‘We want to legalize pot.’”
“Why can’t gays get married like straights do?” Stossel pressed.
“Well, they can,” Coulter quipped. “They have to marry a member of the opposite sex.”
That response was met with boos and groans from the libertarian students.
The best way to end OWS is is to kill some of them.
This is the first time they got bullets back and that put an end…to the protests pretty quickly.
Maybe Coulter ought to change her last name to Assad?
The fundamentalist Social conservatives in the tea party movement have an agitprop article of faith that they and their talk show host friends spew incessantly. One of their favorite myths is that most college science professors are atheists and that they are bent on subverting youth into godless communism/socialism/ and SCIENCE!
The truth is that the great majority of professors who teach are religious, and believe in god(s) to one extent or another. Atheists in the Universities who actually teach are a laughably small minority. Another wingnut claim is shot down fully aflame in this study reviewed in the video by C0nc0rdance.
