Hate speech gets good laughter
Click this video to see yet another RECENT hate example against gays. Can you imagine what it would be like to hear her say the word nigger…or other slur? What got me was the audience laughing.
“I was going to have a few comments on the other Democratic presidential candidate, John Edwards, but it turns out you have to go into rehab if you use the word ‘faggot,’ so I — so kind of an impasse, can’t really talk about Edwards.”

SUMMARY: After right-winger Ann Coulter used the “f-word” to slam John Edwards, the candidate put the video on his Web site and used it to raise money.
Prominently featured on John Edwards’ presidential campaign Web site is a video of conservative commentator Ann Coulter insulting him. And with just a mouse click you can hear the invective and get a chance to donate at the same time.
On Friday, Coulter, a writer and columnist known for provocative remarks, told an audience at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington: “I was going to have a few comments on the other Democratic presidential candidate, John Edwards, but it turns out you have to go into rehab if you use the word ‘faggot,’ so I — so kind of an impasse, can’t really talk about Edwards.”
The Edwards camp is now seeking to capitalize on the slur by soliciting $100,000 in “Coulter Cash” to “show that inflaming prejudice to attack progressive leaders will only backfire.”
Meanwhile, conservatives were none too pleased with Coulter, either. Rev. Patrick J. Mahoney, Director of the Christian Defense Coalition, said: “Frankly, I would have loved to have heard Ann expose and dissect the radical agenda of Sen. Edwards instead of restoring to cheap name-calling.” (AP)
