Anti-gay conservative columnist Ann Coulter has joined the Advisory Board of the gay conservative Tea Party Republican group GOProud, as “Honorary Chair and Gay Icon.” Coulter, who regularly espouses anti-gay rhetoric and hate speech, said in a statement released by GOProud, “I am honored to serve in this capacity on GOProud’s Advisory Council, and look forward to being the Queen of Fabulous.”

“Ann Coulter is a brilliant and fearless leader of the conservative movement, we are honored to have her as part of GOProud’s leadership,” said Christopher Barron, Chairman of GOProud’s Board. “Ann helped put our organization on the map. Politics is full of the meek, the compromising and the apologists – Ann, like GOProud, is the exact opposite of all of those things. We need more Ann Coulters.”

Coulter, who is known for her controversial, anti-gay, and racist remarks, joins other right-wing extremist notables and radical conservative stalwarts like Margaret Hoover, Grover Norquist, Liz Mair, Chuck Muth, Lisa De Pasquale, Christian Josi, Roger Stone, Andrew Langer, Kathryn Serkes, Bob Carlstrom, and Andrew Breitbart on the GOProud Advisory Council. Breitbart is most famous for publishing and defending highly-edited and highly-discredited videos of so-called exposés of ACORN, Planned Parenthood, and Shirley Sherrod, the now-former FDA official who lost her job after a Breitbart-sponsored video led to her dismissal. Sherrod is now suing Breitbart and the suit was just green-lighted to proceed.

For her part, Coulter, despite being paid to headline a GOProud fundraiser last September (image from the event, top,) has consistently come out against the LGBT community, homosexuals, and issues related to gay rights. Coulter at the event drew massive amounts of criticism for comments like, “The equality clause is about just the blacks,” and, “Most parents don’t want their children learning about the ‘homosexual lifestyle’ instead of reading and writing.”

Late last month, Coulter riled many LGBTs, allies, and organizations by supporting the concept of “ex-gay” or “reparative” therapy, and saying to cable talk show host Joy Behar, “I not only want ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ for the military, I want ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ for all of society. Just give me a week where we’re not talking about gays.” Speaking about New York, Coulter said, “OK, the media capital of the world has gay marriage, can we move on now?” Coulter also said, “I not only don’t want open gays in the military, I don’t want open girls in the military.”

The gay Republican group Log Cabin Republicans denounced Coulter’s comments, calling them, “clownish,” “stale,” and a “throwback.”

In June, Coulter told Piers Morgan, “I would tell my gay son (if I had one) that he was adopted.”

In December of last year, just before the bill to repeal Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell became law, Coulter penned a column titled, “Bradley Manning: Poster Boy For ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’.” Manning is the gay service member who delivered massive amounts of leaked confidential military and diplomatic data to Wikileaks.

How dare she attempt to claim the title "Queen of Fabulous" – there are thousands (if not tens of thousands) of other people with much more substantial claim on that title.

GOProud is dumb. A.C. is a vulgar hermaphrodite, and neither of them pay enough in taxes.

I understand and mostly agree with the sentiments in this entry, but was greatly disturbed with the cowardly reference to Bradley Manning. If you're going to use Coulter's condemnation of him, then maybe you could have had the courage to stand up for him?

Juan Mendez, the UN's top official on torture, has requested unmonitored meetings with Manning and our President, and the Secretary of the Army, has refused to grant those meetings.

Before I pen a column entitled "David Badash: Poster Boy For the Hypocrisy of Using Ann Coulter's Disdain for Bradley Manning to Promote His Own Disdain for Ann Coulter, Without Really Showing Anymore Respect For Manning Than Coulter.” Screw it, the headline would be too long. I mean, does it even make sense to Judge Coulter harshly for her view on Manning if you're going to mention him only casually?

Well said, Curtis. Prvt Manning had his own reasons. Maybe DADT was part of his reasons, maybe not. I must wonder how it is the Secretary of the Army can refuse to grant a meeting of this Prvt with the Commander-in-Chief and a U.N. official? If the President says, "Make it so," it is the Secretary's job as the President's subordinate to make it so.

Is this just a big sarcastic joke? She's the Devil's Advocate, not "Fabulous!"
