Howard Dean Demands GOP Candidates Denounce Ann Coulter for Referring to John Edwards as a ‘Faggot’
Saturday , March 03, 2007

Democratic Party boss Howard Dean demanded that Republican presidential candidates denounce conservative columnist Ann Coulter after she referred to Democratic presidential hopeful John Edwards as a “faggot” during a speech Friday at a national conservative gathering.
Coulter, who was addressing the
Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, D.C., said:
“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.”

Members of the audience seemed startled, then many clapped, and she proceeded to open the floor to questions, reported EditorandPublisher.com
After her comments, Dean issued a press release expressing his outrage. Dean called Coulter’s remarks “hate-filled and bigoted.”
“While Democrats and Republicans may disagree on the issues, we should all be able to agree that this kind of vile rhetoric is out of bounds. The American people want a serious, thoughtful debate of the issues,” the press release read.
“Republicans – including the Republican presidential candidates who shared the podium with Ann Coulter today – should denounce her hateful remarks.”

Subject: Urgent CPAC report: Ann Coulter’s bodyguards harrass conservative
You can use my name. The MSM, Media Matters, Wonkette and Olbermann — and whoever else you know — needs to know about this: Just a few hours ago, my friend Dan Borchers (conservative Christian who is writing a book about Ann Coulter’s “extermination speak”) was bodily wrestled out of CPAC (Conservative Political Action Conference) by 4 of Ann Coulter’s bodyguards (two claimed they were CPAC security.) They staged the whole thing, followed him with a camera, cut his hand, tried to pry his name tag and credentials off from his neck, physically WRESTLED him out of the hotel, and shoved him.

His crime: asking a question of another author (Mark Smith) about Ann Coulter, and about the Paula Jones case. Borchers had spent money, bought tickets, took time off work and traveled from Maryland as he does every year, to be at CPAC. He is a lifelong Republican, a conservative military veteran, whose only crime is being morally offended by the way conservatism has been ruined by people like Coulter who indulge in hate speak. He believes it is his moral obligation to bring attention to this, and that “evil triumphs when good men do nothing.”

Borchers is the most mild-mannered, humble Christian. His crime? He is guilty of being critical of the way Ann Coulter has “mainstreamed extremism” and has written articles about her. He accused her of plagiarizing her early books, and at the CPAC conference two years ago, he tried to distribute press kits calling for Coulter to stop her hate speak.
