On Saturday’s “Geraldo at Large” on the Fox News Channel, conservative columnist Ann Coulter suggested that people who support taxes on obesity and smoking are hypocritical to not also back taxes on certain homosexual behaviors.

Coulter,  the author of “Mugged: Racial Demagoguery from the Seventies to Obama,” also told National Action Against Obesity campaign founder MeMe Roth that President Barack Obama’s health care law opened the door to unnecessary nanny-state regulations.

“If we have to worry about the smokers because of Obamacare, I think you have to do something about the gay bathhouses,” Coulter said, “because AIDS is expensive. And if I’m paying for it, how about discouraging that behavior?”

“By the way, I’m not the one that wants to go do anything about it,” Coulter added. “I’m just saying, if the argument is smoking well, we all have to pay — sodomy, we all have to pay. You’re the one making the argument. Go ahead have your bathhouses, have at it. … I’m saying you have crack down on sodomy. You have to demand it.”
