As you've likely seen from the flier promoting "the right wing Judy Garland!" and tagline "our gays are more macho than their straights", Ann Coulter is scheduled to address conservative gay group, GOProud's "HomoCon" get-together.
That, in turn, has led World Net Daily to drop Coulter as a speaker for the website's "Taking America Back National Conference".
Joseph Farah, editor of WND:
GOProud is about infiltration of the conservative movement and dividing it from within with twisted and dangerous ideas way out of the mainstream of American public opinion.
Ann Coulter is, I'm afraid, validating this effort for money. I support her speaking to people with whom she disagrees on college campuses. That's a good idea. I do it, too.
But if you see the way GOProud is exploiting its coup in getting Ann Coulter to speak to its HOMOCON event, you begin to understand what a mistake this is for aconservative icon like Coulter."
For her part, Coulter told WND:
"... in any event, giving a speech is not an endorsement of every position held by the people I'm speaking to.
I was going to speak for you guys, I think you're nuts on the birther thing (though I like you otherwise!)."
But the rift doesn't extend too far -- Coulter will continue to be a weekly columnist with WND.
UPDATE: Coulter tells the Daily Caller that her conversation with Farah was, implicitly, off-record and reserves a few choice words for the WND editor.
“I will say that [Farah] could give less than two sh-ts about the conservative movement — as demonstrated by his promotion of the birther nonsense (long ago disproved by my newspaper, human events, also sweetness & light, american spectator and national review etc, etc etc). He’s the only allegedly serious conservative pushing the birther thing. for ONE reason: to get hits on his website.”
