Conservative columnist Ann Coulter is so upset at Fox News host Chris Wallace for asking Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum about gays in the military that she is advocating violence.

In asking Santorum about the military's now-repealed gay ban Sunday, Wallace had compared the integration of blacks to the integration of gays.

"It is a behavioral issue as opposed to a color of the skin issue," Santorum argued. "And that makes it all the difference when it comes to serving in the military."

Guest hosting for Fox News' Bill O'Reilly Monday, Laura Ingraham asked Coulter to respond, not to Santorum's view of gays in the military but to the appropriateness of Wallace's question.

"I thought it was an outrageous question," Coulter declared. "First of all, I thought Juan Williams should have punched Chris Wallace for saying that when he came on the second half of the program. I'm sick of people comparing gays to blacks. No, it's very different. What Santorum said is true."

"You can see someone is black. You can't see someone is gay. And the precise policy we're talking about is whether someone can go around announcing they are gay. I mean, it's not just being gay. Obviously, [Bradley Manning] can be listening to Lady Gaga while downloading files he's about to give to Wikipedia in the greatest betrayal of his country anyone has ever committed in the military and he was gay. Pretending to listen to Lady Gaga, that's not enough."

It's should be no surprise that Coulter agrees with Santorum that homosexuality is a "behavioral issue" because she has also said that she believes in the gay conversion therapy offered by Rep. Michele Bachmann's (R-MN) clinic.
