Coulter on fundie Take Back America confab: 'They're a bunch of fake Christians'
NOTE FROM PAM: Keyboard protection on, as you watch a circular firing squad with the fundies going down hard. I also have word that WND’s Joseph Farah was on a radio program over the weekend and went batsh*t berserk, so I’ll see if I can get that audio for you soon.
The war on the flailing, desperate, bible-beating hypocrite movement continues as Ann Coulter’s pummeling WorldNetDaily’s Joseph Farah and the social conservative conference, Take Back America, that dropped her as a speaker for agreeing to headline the gay conservative GOProud HOMOCON event. She went on the Fox News program Red Eye and underscored the chicanery of these holier-than-thou bedroom peepers.
The heat generated by the e-blasts from WND could fry the egg that is on Joseph Farah’s face. This is from his latest missive to burn my inbox…
Conservative pundit Ann Coulter intensified her attacks on WND last night on Fox News Channel’s “Red Eye” show, accusing those at the largest independent news site who dropped her from the “Taking America Back National Conference” in Miami of being “fake Christians.”
Coulter claimed she was never actually booked for the event, repeated her resentment over publishing her e-mail explanations to WND Editor Joseph Farah for appearing at GOProud’s Homocon event and lashed out at WND for “pushing the birther thing,” which she said is not supported by any conservatives.
“These are fake Christians trying to get publicity,” said Coulter.
Previously, Coulter called Farah a “publicity whore” and a “swine” for WND’s decision to drop her upon learning of her plan to speak to the homosexual Republican group.
In response, Farah issued the following statement: “Coulter called me a ‘publicity whore’ for my decision. But look who is on television talking about this – throwing mud, name-calling, smearing not only me but my entire staff. I will not engage in the kind of ad hominem attacks that have made Coulter so famous and that are making her even more of a media darling in this age of reckless anger and character assassination for the sake of entertainment. Every day, since we made this decision at WND, I thank God for giving me the clarity of mind and discernment to make the right choice.”
As to Coulter’s new accusation that she was never even booked for the conference, Farah had this to say: “Coulter agreed to speak. She was retained through her speakers bureau on the basis of a previous fee for an unfulfilled engagement. We promoted her appearance at the event for six months in a high-profile manner with no objections by Coulter. We were just about to pay the balance due on the remainder of the speaker’s fee when this bombshell dropped about her keynoting the Homocon event in New York one week after our conference. If Coulter didn’t consider herself booked, she had ample opportunity to tell me that during the last six months and during our e-mail conversations. Knowing how quick-witted she is, it would likely have been the first reaction she had, rather than one she had to think about for days. We haven’t asked Coulter to refund the money we paid to her for a speech she will never deliver. But, if I were making the charge that I was never booked, I would be more than willing to refund the money I was paid by supposedly ‘fake Christians,’ ‘swine’ and ‘publicity whores.'”
…“I have no desire to extend this public debate with Coulter, for whom I have lost so much respect, and I certainly won’t trade personal attacks,” he said. “The issue for us remains clear: GOProud, a group that supports same-sex marriage and open homosexuality in the U.S. military ranks, should not be embraced or validated by people who accept the biblical and traditional definition of marriage and the understanding that armies and navies have one purpose – to defeat enemies. My position is that homosexual behavior is a sin that should not be affirmed, condoned, encouraged or laughed about.”
Wow. So Ann’s ad hom attacks were fine until she put you in front of her acetylene torch? And about not being interested in a public battle, gee, Joe, then why are these public e-blasts still flowing freely on the internets? LOLOLOL.
Coulter also repeated her claim that Barack Obama’s failure to prove his constitutional eligibility for office, raised by WND and of concern, according to recent polls, by at least 58 percent of the American people, are nothing more than a big joke.
“He’s pushing the birther thing,” she said of Farah. “No one who is conservative believes in it either, someone who wants to get hits for his website may promote it.”
In fact, most of America’s top talk-show hosts have acknowledged on-air that Obama’s constitutional eligibility is a valid issue, including Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Michael Savage, Mark Levin, Lou Dobbs and many others – not to mention former Alaska governor Sarah Palin.
Wow, that’s a list of really credible peeps, Joe — keep it coming.
She continued: “I will say that [Farah] could give less than two sh–s 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.”
Farah responded to Coulter’s remarks, saying, “Ann is angry. I hope she calms down and there can be some restoration, repentance and forgiveness. She said some mean things about me, but I can sleep at night knowing I did the right thing in God’s economy.”
OMG, this beatdown is hilarious! I will enjoy the next chapter in this soap opera. Meanwhile, GOProud is laughing all the way to the bank on all of the free publicity Farah is giving HOMOCON.
