Free Republic Founder Joins Boycott Of CPAC
Free Republic ^ | 12-21-09

Posted on 12/21/2009 12:14:29 PM PST by icwhatudo

The founder of the website "Free Republic", Jim Robinson, has joined a growing boycott of the CPAC (Conservative Political Action Conference) due to a homosexual activist group sponsoring the event.

GOProud, a group that advocates same-sex "marriage," a repeal of the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy, and "expanding access to domestic partner benefits" for homosexuals, is listed as a sponsor of the event at CPAC's website.

Mr. Robinson has joined a number of conservative activists including Liberty University Chancellor Jerry Falwell, Jr., Liberty Counsel founder and chairman Mat Staver, and Gary Glenn, president of the American Family Association of Michigan in their efforts.

On a reply to an article about the boycott, Mr. Robinson stated "I’ll join that boycott. If CPAC is no longer for conservative family values then I want nothing to do with them. They’ll have to change their name to HOMOPAC."

CPAC ceased to be conservative when they let Newt through the door.

Between this homo-advocacy group and the John Birch Society it appears that CPAC has been subverted by infiltration of the enemy. Who is running this group and why are they committing suicide?

CPAC should know better than to allow this.

It makes a statement about the organization that is unacceptable.

This group is seeking to purchase legitimacy. CPAC should not be a party to that. It has telegraphed that it is willing to be.

Big mistake!

We need more conservative leaders like Jim who are willing to tell it like it is. Other than Jim and Sarah Palin, we’re pretty much at a standstill.

Obviously there must be a RINO running the organization so they should call themselves RINOPAC.

Outstanding Jim Rob! This is a vital leg to conservatism. What’s up with CPAC? There’s no need for a Log Cabin wing.

Letting Soros funded people take both sides of a debate on drug legalization was a pretty clear turn in my opinion.

CPAC has the Birchers and the Homos as sponsors.

I'm so damn tired of these deviant, diseased freaks hijacking rainbows and perfectly good words like "pride".

I'm so damn tired of them, period. The more they push, the more I truly despise them.

But guys, haven't they endorsed that conservative hero, Mitt Romney, three years running?

Wasn't Governor Palin the only major contender that did not attend and speak at CPAC?

Palin-bashing CPAC/ACU Chair donated $2,000 to Arlen Specter, endorsed Romney

The Birchers have been screaming about this NWO stuff for as long as I can remember. Everybody laughed at them.

Nobody’s laughing anymore.

It’s a shame anyone is still supporting them after that mess was exposed. CPAC is clearly not about advancing conservatives values anymore. They go only to the highest bidder.

Jim et al.

Every party needs their useful idiots (sorry to say). Their votes count as much as ours. I’m desperate enough at this point to accept 85% of our full agenda to defeat the Socialists.

It’s not ideological purity, but it’ll have to do for now at least.
