Conservative firebrand Ann Coulter called libertarians "pussies" in front of an audience of 1,000+ students during Thursday's episode of Fox Business Network's Stossel at the International Students for Liberty Conference in Washington, D.C — reported Mediaite.
Coulter debated host John Stossel — and the students — over social issues, calling libertarians the aforementioned epithet and receiving loud boos as a consequence. Stossel and Coulter discussed the War in Iraq — which Coulter claimed it was totally justified because Saddam Hussein "was definitely looking for uranium from Niger."
They then turned to the subject of legalizing drugs, as Coulter quipped, "libertarians and pot." "This is why people think libertarians are pussies," 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're a little more manly you would tell them what your position on employment discrimination is. How about that? But it's always 'We want to legalize pot,'" Coulter elaborated.
And when Stossel asked, "why can't gays get married?" Coulter responded, "well, they can. They have to marry a member of the opposite sex" (which was booed again). "This is another one where you're just sucking up to liberals when there are big fights," Coulter fired back.
