Ann Coulter, a conservative known for spouting her controversial beliefs, has again shocked the nation by stating that gay people can get married as long as they marry a member of the opposite sex.
Coulter made the statement when she was debating Fox Business correspondent John Stossel. She was quickly booed by the audience.
Before she made the statement, she called Libertarians “p*ssies.”
The audience was full of roughly 1400 Libertarians, as it was filmed at the International Students for Liberty Conference in Washington, D.C.
When the topic of drugs came up, Coulter said “this is why people think Libertarians are p*ssies.”
She said, “We’re living in a country that is 70-percent socialist, the government takes 60 percent of your money. They are taking care of your health care, of your pensions.
They’re telling you who you can hire, what the regulations will be. And you want to suck up to your little liberal friends and say, ‘Oh, but we want to legalize pot.’ You know, if you were a little more manly you would tell the liberals what your position on employment discrimination is. How about that? But it’s always ‘We want to legalize pot.’”
After spouting her opinions on drugs, she was then asked by Stossel what she thought about gay marriage.
Stossel asked, “Why can’t gays get married?”
She replied, “Well, they can. They have to marry a member of the opposite sex.”
That’s when the audience had enough and began booing her.
The debate happens once a year. Usually Stossel invites Libertarian-friendly guests. Past guests included presidential candidate Gary Johnson, Reason magazine star Nick Gillespie, and Cato Institute VP David Boaz.
When the conversation between Stossel and Coulter first began, it was “mostly pleasant.” They had a light debate over the War in Iraq, where Coulter said it was certainly worth the cost because Saddam Hussein was “definitely looking for uranium from Niger.”
