a slang word for gay. Originates from WW2 when Nazis would tie primarily homosexuals together like faggots of wood (a bundle of usually fire wood) one would be shot and the two or three people would be pushed off a bridge into a stream or river, the dead body would sink bringing the others down with them. This was done to save bullets.
"Binden Sie sie wie faggots"
A term derived from the time of the Salem Which Trials where when they burned the witches, they would use homosexual men as the kindling along with the bunches of sticks of the same name (faggots).
"Were the faggots burned along with the witches?"
A liberal person see below.

COULTER:....The word I used has nothing to do with sexual preference. It is a schoolyard taunt, and unless you're going to announce here on national TV that Edwards, married father of many children, is gay, it clearly had nothing to do with that. It's a schoolyard taunt.....

COLMES: But you used a word that's very offensive to gays. Would you use a word offensive to another group of people and say, oh, it was only a joke? Where do you draw the line?

COULTER: It isn't offensive to gays. It has nothing to do with gays. It's a schoolyard taunt, meaning wuss. And unless you're telling me that Edwards is gay, it was not applied to a gay person.....

COULTER: Yes. Yes. I would say that of pretty much every Democratic politician. It could have been Dean, but he's not running for president. It could have been a different word...
I was going to have a few comments on the other Democratic presidential candidate, Edwards, but it turns out that you have to go into rehab if you use the word "faggot." So...
