When Ann Coulter says “liberals want to destroy the family so that you have only one loyalty, and that is to the government,” an entire room full of self-described libertarians laughs at her. Such a stance against gay marriage–that it is a statist plan used by liberals to create dependence on government -can truly only be met with disbelief. It’s one thing to oppose marriage equality, but entirely another to reach such depths of paranoia. I don’t know exactly who Ann Coulter speaks for these days (some version of the Republican Party, I suppose), but its worth watching this video to see how the remnants of 2002 neo-conservatism look in 2013: crazy. Iraq was a “magnificent war”? Really? I didn’t know that even supporters still said things like this.
Also, I didn’t know all libertarians were pussies, Ann. Keep up the classy work.
