Gay TV Star Assaulted for Being Associated with Ann Coulter
Taylor Garrett is a member of the gay reality TV show "A-List Dallas." After leaving a party he found a vandal scratching "[expletive] Coulter" on the side of his car. After Garrett discovered him, the vandal stood up and decked Taylor in his left eye.
Garrett, who has done work with groups run by former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, says he has been subject to harassment and threats for being a gay conservative since news broke that he was having lunch with Coulter in Los Angeles for his show.
One of my former students, who is a conservative lesbian, worked at the Log Cabin Republicans headquarters in Washington, D.C. She told me that there are two groups that might naturally oppose the Log Cabin Republicans: (i) liberal homosexuals who are angry because they are Republican, and (ii) conservative heterosexuals who are angry because they are homosexual. She said that the hate mail and hate phone calls from the liberal group vastly outnumbered those from the conservative group.
