Skip to comments.This is Too Much For Me (RedState rips into GOProud)
Posted on 02/10/2011 7:47:31 PM PST by DesScorp
I have, for me, shown an amazing amount of restraint in keeping my mouth shut on an issue about which I can stay silent no longer GOProud and CPAC.
RedStates parent company, Eagle Publishing, Inc., is a long time sponsor of CPAC. RedState itself is helping FreedomWorks sponsor Bloggers Row. We were the sole sponsor of Bloggers Row last year. I will be speaking at CPAC at the Young Americas Foundation luncheon named in honor of Tom Phillips, my friend and also the big boss at Eagle Publishing, Inc.
I have done my best to stay out of this business, keep my mouth shut, and appreciate my friends on both sides of the CPAC divide. Had I not seen this particular attack by GOProud against long time solid conservatives Id continue keeping my mouth shut. But this is too much. And my guess is that there arent many if any willing to call foul, so I will do it.
As someone who spent time trying to give them the benefit of the doubt, I accept this as conclusive proof that, while it is a Republican organization, GOProud is not a conservative organization.
Let me tell you why.

While Cleta Mitchell was fighting for peoples right to work, GOProud was aligning itself with the AFL-CIO and the SEIU.
While Cleta Mitchell was helping the Senate Conservatives Fund get people like Pat Toomey, Marco Rubio, Ron Johnson, Rand Paul, Mike Lee, and others elected, GOProud was attacking Jim DeMint.
While Cleta Mitchell was in super secret meetings of the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy this week, GOProud was attacking Tim Pawlenty for daring to defend conservative positions on dont ask-dont tell.
Those groups and people who have sat out CPAC this year have done so not because they hate the gays, as Grover Norquist and GOProud would have you believe, but because GOProud is not a conservative organization and its agenda is not a conservative agenda.
For that, they are called losers and nasty bigots.
These losers and nasty bigots have done a lot more for the conservative movement than GOProud. And I am very happy to call them my friends.
This week, Id much rather be with them than be at CPAC.
Well, yeah. What has GOProud done to prove it’s conservatism? Being Republican and being Conservative isn’t the same thing.
The leader of the militant homosexual group, GOProud, has been very open in his agenda. He said the group exists solely to work on “gay issues”. Hello? Here we go with another trojan horse group whose specific goal is to weaken the Republican party. If they truly supported conservative values, why would they form their group around sexual behavior? It makes no sense whatsoever. Good riddance to these freaks.
Suffer the little children. Barrons prochoice past is alarming not to mention his current attacks on prolifers.
Trump pretty much gutted the CPAC.
Next year should be DOA before it even starts.
the 2012 cpac should be RINOs and homosexuals.
