Conservative talking head Ann Coulter wants an “all gay division” of the military.

Coulter protested repeal of the law that bans gay and bisexual troops from serving openly – known as “Don't Ask, Don't Tell” – by ironically asking during an appearance on Fox News' Red Eye, “Why can't we have diversity?”

“The combat units, the Marines and the Army, don't want gays in the military. Why can't they have it that way and we can have an all gay division. And with the ice sculptures, and the Liza Minnelli, and the special uniforms and the cravats.”

The 49-year-old Coulter insisted open gay service will weaken the military.

“Why not make them fight – this is like, you know, an Orwell book – why not make them fight with a chainsaw attached to their left leg.”

“Just hope the Germans don't reconstitute an army when we're putting girls and gays in military. We are not taking the military seriously,” she added. (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page.)

Coulter created a swirl of controversy when she accepted an invitation to speak at Homocon 2010, the first annual convention of gay conservatives sponsored by gay GOP group GOProud. She was called a “traitor” by conservatives, but at the event she told gay Republicans that marriage “is not a civil right – you're not black.”
