GOProud Party Breitbart’s Proudest Hour
PajamasMedia ^ | February 10, 2011 | Roger L Simon

Posted on 02/12/2011 12:42:10 AM PST by Nickname

The party staged by Andrew Breitbart for GOProud — the gay Republican and conservative group — was as close to a game changer as things get and the most interesting event at CPAC by far, at least to this point — and that’s meant as no insult to CPAC. With sexy Sophie B. Hawkins singing to a boisterous, supportive crowd, the party almost obliterated in one night the conception that Republicans are anti-gay and gave the impression that young libertarians — and some not so young — are taking over the GOP. Pretty soon it may be cool to be a Republican and square to be a Democrat.

Well, maybe that’s what I wanted to see and wanted to feel, but the atmosphere was certainly there Thursday night at DC’s Eighteenth Street Lounge. People wandered the club’s corridors in wonderment at it all. No, there weren’t any leather biker studs or other accoutrements of the more outre gay scene, but there was as much acceptance of our modern world as at Democratic Party events, especially national ones of the scope of CPAC.

Does this indeed mean that libertarianism in its various strains is taking over the GOP? Again, that is possibly wishful thinking (and I wouldn’t want it to be that brand of libertarianism that seems to think the common defense can be accomplished with BB guns in someone’s garage), but there are indications across CPAC. Again, maybe this is anecdotal, but I’ve hardly heard much talk of abortion or other social issues at the conference — and when I have it seems vaguely discordant or anachronistic. Most people wanted to discuss the economy or the looming dangers of the Muslim Brotherhood. And, of course, who would be best to put Barack Obama out of office.

More juvenile giddiness over GOProud at CPAC.

We can see where this is headed with libertarians attempting to redefine conservatism. Next up: courting the pro-aborts.

C-PAC - co-opted, penetrated by Paulbots, homosexuals, and other various and sundry Marxist moles.

Send bucks to individual candidates.

I don’t think so. The new chairman has distanced himself (unless he changed his mind today) and CPAC from the GOproud crowd. He was disgusted with the behavior and alarmed by conservative groups ‘friends’ that did not attend this year. He sounds like he gets it.

Further, although it wasn’t really publicized, Scott Magill wrote an op-ed piece in the Washington Times. An absolutely outstanding piece regarding the recent leftward shift and what being conservative is about.
Here’s the link:
http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2011/feb/9/defend-cpac-from-phony-conservatives/

As I said it’s a fantastic article.

Hopefully the newly selected chairman will clean house starting with that mole Norquist.

It’s a good read, thanks for the link.

Some of the comments that follow are telling with those who disagree with Magill using the usual left-wing tactic of leveling personal attacks. Rather than disagreeing and stating why, it’s the same fundamentally immature derision and name calling employed by democrats in an attempt to bully people into submission to their agenda.

You do not need a special group like GOProud for gays to be accepted in the GOP. People normally tend to treat other people with dignity and respect. Get rid of a special organization and recognition because homosexuality is abnormal and unnatural, introduces risk to mental and physical health. Do not pretend otherwise!

There’s a weird logic here. With the collapse of cultural Christianity, and Christian true-believers fragmented and distrustful of each other, a secular pro-sodomy candidate who’s a fiscal conservative and nominally anti-abortion could steal the show. Trump is positioning himself like this. Is Palin? Who else?

When it was revealed that this individual supported this abnormality group, I stopped going to the sight, breibert.com and will never again. They are using this abnormality to destroy society. Read, “The Pink Swaztika”, the plan has not stopped. There is no future with this abonormal behavior except for the power elite.

I’m reminded of northeast liberals who can’t make the cut in the crowded field of the Democratic Party so try to make a name for themselves as Republicans. I know that their agenda is more insidious than that but yeah, it’s sucking.

I’m disappointed but not surprised that Breitbart has jumped on the GOProud bandwagon.

I will stop visiting his sites after CPAC is over. For now, I’m just watching this spectacle unfold.

Here’s another emotionally stunted report coming out of CPAC involving GOProud:

Reason.tv – Liberal in Bed, Conservative in the Head: Sophie B. Hawkins, Andrew Breitbart, Michael Steele, at the Big Gay Party

Has the conservative movement become a champion of gay rights? Is gun-owning, lesbian singer Sophie B. Hawkins of “Damn I Wish I Was Your Lover” fame a liberal in bed and conservative in the head?

Last night, Reason’s Michael Moynihan dropped by the Big Gay Party, a celebration of the role of the conservative movement in advocating for gay rights, which was hosted by conservative gay group GOProud and new media mogul Andrew Breitbart. The party was part of the festivities surrounding the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), which was boycotted by some conservatives because of GOProud’s participation.

GOPproud must be the successor to Log Cabin Republicans. A conservative once wrote that he knew they were in the room when somebody approached him and offered to fix the dimple in his necktie.

To be “proud” because of the manner by which one has sex. Yuk.

Last year was the first year I noticed that the Pro-Life message among younger people at CPAC seemed to be starting to wane, and that it was becoming a heavily “Libertarian” event, with an odd influx of the tattooed and pierced type.

This is going to be a great thread. Breitbart, who has arguably done more to advance and defend conservatism over the past few years than the supposedly conservative Republican Party, is now going to be FR's enemy # 1.

Breitbart's reach and opposition research operation is much wider than evidenced by his family of web sites and it's hilarious to watch the tsk tskers in this thread who probably idolize a certain conservative talk show host that Breitbart's operation is closely tied to.

CPAC sucks.

I’m reminded of that classical old western tune sung by Gene Autry, an american legend in singing, acting, business, horsemanship, baseball, and longevity, “Back in the Closet Again”.

Just as Conservative, Christian, Constitutional folks have their sexual preferences firmly behind the door of the closet, the only way to recognize a truly Conservative, Christian, Constitutional, homosexual, is to not recognize them at all, because their sexual preferences are firmly behind the door of the proverbial closet and will remain there where they belong.

Breitbart’s done a great deal to expose corruption but endorsing the homosexual agenda is not advancing conservatism.

We’re going to end up with a lot more Scott Browns in the GOP if courting special interest groups like GOProud is the road we take. We’ve actually done the “big tent” thing before and the results have been disastrous. A watered down GOP that stands for nothing. Dem lite.

Join us as individuals but get the hell away from me if you have the slightest inclination to use the power of the government to force anyone to approve of whatever it is you’re doing behind closed doors. And GOProud is inclined to do that.

Next year, prepare for gala events celebrating those who practice incest and bestiality. They’re equally sinful to homosexuality in the Bible, so if it’s cool to be gay, then I guess it’s cool to participate in the other stuff.

I am putting on my nomex now.

1. Marriage recognition is a state issue, not a federal one. Any “conservative” that says marriage recognition should be dictated to the states by the federal government is no conservative. I don’t think there should be a separate federal recognition of marriage at all.

2. “Render unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s, and unto God the things that are God’s.” Some Protestants, often the most violently opposed to government “recognition” of gay marriage, accept a marriage as valid when presided over by a judge. Marriage is a sacrament. Whatever any earthly government declares as marriage may or may not be one, but the government declaring it so does not make it so.

From Man For All Seasons: “Some men think the earth is round, others think it flat. It is a matter capable of question. But if it is flat,will the King’s command make it round? And if it is round, will the King’s command flatten it?”

Many are arguing about whether or not the state can make a marriage that is against God. Since the state is not competent to make marriage, obviously it cannot. That certain religious groups assumed the state had that power by accepting “marriage” “granted” by the state (a justice of the peace), I can see their problem. They, like the left, have tried to give that which is God’s to their Caesar. *That* is the real problem.

One may need a licenses to have his marriage recognized by the state and to receive the tax benefits of marriage recognition, but recognition is a far cry from making a marriage, which can only be done by God.

3. There have always been factions in both parties that feel they can save individuals by passing laws to save them from themselves (see Prohibition, for example). Contrary to the statements by Scott Magill in the much lauded link, the Constitution does *not* deal with the relationships of an individual to the family, the family to the church, nor even the government to the family, but the government to the *individual*. (”Church and family are the basis of the traditional values upon which our Constitution rests.”)

I, too, have sworn to uphold and defend the Constitution. However, radical divinations of what the Constitution ought to say based on a quote from a historical figure not only does not magically transform the Constitution into something it is not (a bulwark for the ideals of some religious institutions) , but recalls the tactics of the radical left in their attempts to destroy that very document. It says what it says and for a reason.

I do *not* support gay marriage, as there is no such thing. The state claiming there is such a thing would be as meaningful as the state declaring that the Earth is flat (or that there really is a market for ethanol).

Well, we must admit it is getting harder to do. Things and people are not always what they seem. Some Leftists, like Bill Maher, claim to be Libertarian. I suspect that is to deny his true colors and he thinks few people even know what a Libertarian stands for.

What makes GOProud different, IMO, is they are declaring themselves to be conservative even though they are gay. That means they are not claiming special status nor wanting any special treatment from the government. They are saying that not all gays are pushing the liberal agenda.

Some Freepers are quick to judge and they come out with guns blazing to declare their bona fides as conservatives before they have all the facts or before they have thought the matter through. I agree we must be wary of RINOs but we shouldn't throw our daughters out of the house if they happen to lose their virginity. Dick Cheney has a lesbian daughter whom he loves very much. Did you disown Cheney over that? Some declare their opposition to homosexuality based on their understanding of, and belief in, the Bible. Did they miss the part that says, "Hate the sin but love the sinner."? If you accept their help in other matters it does not mean you are supporting their sin.

Were GOProud not flying under that banner but were instead quietly joining as individuals, as wita suggested, would the same Freepers be demanding their expulsion? I doubt it, and that would also deprive us of the message that the Left cannot create victim groups, demand special rights for them and then claim them as their own and rely on their votes. Some of these made-up victim groups, blacks, women, homosexuals, illegals, etc., are conservatives and we should be happy when they declare themselves so.

To abandon Breitbart over this is ridiculous, wounding yourself in the futile attempt to hurt someone else. Is that Christian? It is certainly dumb and all would see it as such were their vision not clouded by religion and politics.

I suggest that some Freepers should cool their jets, stop their sanctimonious Bible thumping, and take a closer look at this thing.

The ‘Age of Consent’ is also a state issue, not a federal one. So if the left-wing attack this state issue the same way that they have attacked the definition and recoginiton of marraige are you still going to spout the same BS?

The Constitution specifies the means for Amendments. Yet you claim it is anti-conservative to seek an Amendment in order to clarify the definition of marraige for activist judges?

As it stands now the left-wing seek to dictate a perverted morality through federal law. They have also saught this on the state level for many states as well. People and businesses have been punished for opposing perversion. The ‘right to association’ is being destroyed. The People’s ‘right to representation’ is also being destroyed by activist judges who claim that the people have no right to make state laws opposing perversion rights.

The military is now also being perverted at the federal level as well by leftists. What state laws will prevent that?

All of this eventually winds up in front of judges. The only way to make it crystal clear for judges is through a Constitutional Amendment that clarifies it for all of the states.

But if we are lacking the majority to Amend the Constitution then we still will have to fight the left here on every level from the state level to the federal level. It is moronic to think that it is anyother way.

The past wording of the ‘Marraige’ Amendment may not be the silver bullet answer but to defeat the left will require action at the federal level and ultimetaly an Amendment.

GOProud pushes a left-wing agenda. They are for special rights for perversion. They support law that would punish those who oppose perversion.

There is no need for a closer look. The GOProud perversion rights agenda is known.

Excellent post! Thanks.

One may need a licenses to have his marriage recognized by the state and to receive the tax benefits of marriage recognition, but recognition is a far cry from making a marriage, which can only be done by God.

Having the marriage recognized by the state also subjects it to other laws, such as community property, alimony, child support, etc., all of which were designed to protect "the weaker sex." As with many things the government does it has often foisted the opposite upon us. Women usually reign supreme in a divorce court. However, those issues are legitimate concerns for women and I am not sure how they could be handled through an administrative procedure through the church.

I suppose your view is that were it a "true marriage", a sacrament of the church, these issue are unlikely to arise.

I’m a little surprised you noticed. I wanted to write an explanation, as you have done, stating that the broad homosexual brush does not include the many homosexuals who believe implicitly in Conservative principles and morality, knowing they are but a small percentage of the populace, and understanding their differences/preferences sexually are not important enough in the overall scheme of things to warrant wholesale upheaval of the American system as the founders viewed it, nor justifying special rights with the unintended consequences.

Not sure why I didn’t write more. Perhaps it was the subconscious Nomex moment mentioned by another on this thread.

That means they are not claiming special status nor wanting any special treatment from the government.

They aren't? What's this?

GOProud Federal Legislative Agenda

1 – TAX REFORM - We support replacing the current tax code with the Fair Tax. Until then, we support death tax repeal; domestic partner tax equity; cuts in the capital gains and corporate tax rates to jump start our economy and create jobs; a fairer, flatter and substantially simpler tax code.

2 – HEALTHCARE REFORM – Free market healthcare reform. Allow for the purchase of insurance across state lines – expanding access to domestic partner benefits; emphasizing individual ownership of healthcare insurance – such a shift would prevent discriminatory practices by an employer or the government.

3 – SOCIAL SECURITY REFORM - The only way to permanent solvency in the Social Security system is through the creation of inheritable personal savings accounts. Personal savings accounts would give gay and lesbian couples the same opportunity to leave their accounts to their spouses as their straight counterparts.

6 – FIGHTING GLOBAL EXTREMISTS – Standing strong against radical regimes that refuse to recognize the basic human rights of gays and lesbians, women and religious minorities.

7 – DEFENDING OUR CONSTITUTION – Opposing any anti-gay federal marriage amendment. Marriage should be a question for the states. (where they win in the courts) A federal constitutional amendment on marriage would be an unprecedented federal power grab from the states.

8 – ENCOURAGING COMMUNITY ENTREPRENEURSHIP – Package of free market reforms to encourage and support small businesses and entrepreneurship. Such reforms would create jobs for all Americans – including gay Americans.

And lest you be fooled by the inclusions: Christopher Barron, GOProud Chairman of the Board: "We are a gay organization, we only work on gay issues, we have never claimed otherwise. My God people." Aug 4, 2010; 4:04pm

Note this statement from the article:

Again, maybe this is anecdotal, but I’ve hardly heard much talk of abortion or other social issues at the conference — and when I have it seems vaguely discordant or anachronistic.

What does this tell us about his priorities?

GOProud pushes a left-wing agenda. They are for special rights for perversion. They support law that would punish those who oppose perversion.

There is no need for a closer look. The GOProud perversion rights agenda is known.

Not only are you wrong, you are completely wrong and you are aggressively fighting a ghost. Good luck with that, Don Quixote!

Go to their website. They are exactly as I said. They support all the things a good conservative supports. This is one of their legislative goals:

7 – DEFENDING OUR CONSTITUTION – Opposing any anti-gay federal marriage amendment. Marriage should be a question for the states. A federal constitutional amendment on marriage would be an unprecedented federal power grab from the states.

Is that what you mean by They support law that would punish those who oppose perversion.

They simply oppose the federal government getting involved at all. They are not against anyone's point of view from a legal standpoint. They just want the government out of it.

I assume this will change you attitude about them.

Please point out to me where they are seeking special treatment. I went to their site also and I posted a reply to TheBigIf, #48. What are you seeing that I am not?

So the fact that they oppose the one thing that would clarify this issue for the Courts makes them conservative?

Every issue that GOProud takes is calculated to sound as conservative as possible while supporting the radical left-wing perversion rights movement.

Show me one place whereas they oppose anti-discriination laws that punish people and businesses for opposing perversion?

There is non because GOProud support them. They also support special protections for perversion in our military that would punish those who do not want to shower and bunk with those who openly profess a perversion for the same gender.

They are not conservative but are left-wing perverts who support dictating their perverted morality to others.
