Skip to comments."Bring It! I Love It!" CPAC Speaker Gets Booed For Condemning CPAC For Inviting Gay Organization
Posted on 02/19/2010 5:51:20 PM PST by icwhatudo
The speaker, Ryan Sorba, was introduced to talk about his experiences with the ACORN investigation. Before he could even say a word the boos started from the assorted gay activists in the crowd. (Sorba is a frequent critic of the homosexual lifestyle).
Note that only AFTER the boos began did Sorba change the subject to condemning CPAC for inviting GOProud to CPAC.
He became flustered as any young man in such a situation would be on national TV, at a supposedly "conservative" event, being booed by homosexual activists...but his response that "Lesbians at Smith college protest better than you do" was pretty funny.
I guess CPAC is being infiltrated by ‘progressive’ elements. Disgusting.
Sure, a more experienced speaker would have handled it a bit better, but its easy to stand up for what you believe along with a crowd of thousands, but to do it in front of such boos and cat-calls...the young man is very brave IMHO.
But, that's not the case. Even if the GOP wrote into its platform a celebration of homosexual marriage and even performed one at the convention, we still wouldn't get any more of the homo vote than we get now - which is squat, bupkis, nada none. So, I say ignore them. We have nothing to gain and everything to lose. JMHO.
If this is allowed to continue, we lose out party.
Hang around GOP activists, you would be shocked how many of them are homosexual.
I am no fan of "the homosexual lifestyle" but I think we would be much better off advancing broad agendas of less government and individual freedom that that vast majority of people share common ground on then worrying about what people do in their bedrooms.
Saw it today. He was good.
Ounce upon a time our great party stood for broad themes of individual and economic freedoms. If we have gotten to the situation that the party's existence depends on this issue, we have already lost.
It was a time where students where speaking and it was mostly college students booing.
Then maybe the homos should shut the F88K up and stop trying to force normal people to accept their lifestyle as acceptable at gunpoint.
I really don’t see what the Republican leadership think they gain by this. The Log Cabin Republicans have been a traitorous, trouble-making bunch for as long as I can remember.
All they succeed in doing is angering their base, while the great majority of these folks continue to vote for the Democrats. It’s not a big tent, it’s a sure-fire formula for a much smaller tent.
As for CPAC, they have turned into a very questionable and unreliable organization.
Our party, our country, our lives.
I’ve had “disagreements” with a few homosexual supporters on FR. Amazingly, they try to justify the behavior with scripture.
When I’ve pointed out indisputable evidence that God condemns the behavior, they say I’m “Angry” and “Full of Hatred.”
I don’t think it’s right to shout any speaker down. That’s what liberal slime do. Looks like a militant homosexual group planned the protest. In the midst of fighting two wars, do we really want to inject open homosexuality into our armed forces? I think not!
Way to go Ryan, he is a personal acquaintance of mine!~
Wonder if the Soros puppets are there this year.
progressive gays are pro acorn? certainly not conservative
Maybe Conservative Christians ought to consider abandoning the Republican party then..wouldn’t put in skin off my back (God would defend us anyway, even if the Repugs do lose because they have abandoned Republican..Conservative) principles! CPAC is fill with establishment CINO types, I know from experience.
I don't think that bad advice. But, to bring it back around to the marriage issue - these proposed marriage laws have virtually nothing to do with to homosexuals marrying each other and everything to do with foisting a particular lifestyle acceptance in the broader community. These bills regulate how religious based charities manage their outreach programs, their adoption programs, how they hire staff as well as what kind of gay-friendly curriculum has to be taught in the local schools.
It seems the "gay agenda" has much less to to with what goes on in the bedroom between two consenting adults, and much more about how society is forced to accept such a lifestyle, without rebuke or comment.
The name of the group is a slander in and of itself. How or why the party ever accepted the infiltrators is beyond me.
Now we have another gay activist group of ringers pulling the same thing. And the Stupid (or worse) Party is falling for it again.
Are you nuts? Most of us don’t give a crap about what folks do in their bedrooms. It is they that want to make us make an issue of what they do in their bedrooms. I do not show up at tea parties and profess I am a heterosexual and seek special attention for that.
How freaking ridiculous. This is what happens when you start pandering to stupid special interests.
Let him know about this thread. He showed real bravery doing what he did.
If they could shut the hell up about what they do in their bedrooms, you might have a point.
It is my opnion that government should not be involved in marriage at at. There should be no marriage license. If government wasn’t involved in granting permission to get married (license) the homo/straight “marriage” dispute would not and could not exist.
We’ve already lost the party. We are now in the process of losing CPAC and may soon have the Tea Party at risk as GOP tries to “moderate the tone.”
Agreed I’ve got gay friends who don’t expect the world to conform to them. Why the hell should the GOP conform to this special interest?
“If we have gotten to the situation that the party’s existence depends on this issue, we have already lost.”
If homosexuals were content to shut up about their sexual proclivities and vote like conservatives, there would be no issue.
As it stands, they are not content to just be conservatives, but want to be issue-oriented activists within the party - specifically about an issue that will have huge implications for our, “individual and economic freedoms”.
Today MARKED THE END OF CPAC AS A FORCE WITHIN THE CONSERVATIVE MOVEMENT.
Good job Ryan.
If the “gay vote” depended on the GOP reversing its position on gay marriage, they’re probably not Republicans, or at least not conservative. I am inclined to believe that a gay conservative would take a more libertarian stance on the issue of gay marriage: either keep it at the state level or have the government get out of the business of issuing marriage licenses altogether.
That being said, I am disheartened how one could be for smaller government, low taxes, and strong defense, and be called still be called a RINO if they don’t believe it’s the government’s job to promote social conservative values.
Well, just thinking out loud here - if they aren't involved in marriage at the beginning, they'll still be involved in marriage at the end. Even if you were to advocate that the marriage contract would be unrecognized in government, for purposes of taxes and such (which would be a bad, bad idea), the courts would still get dragged into it when one of these marriages end, either due to death or divorce.
It seems that it would be impossible to completely remove government from marriage, and I'm not sure it would be a good idea even if it was a possibility.
As if the GOP hasn’t alienated me enough in recent years with various big-government spending efforts and amnesty plans, if it goes all faggy too, I’m dumping it for keeps. The memories of Mark Foley kissy-courting teenage pages and Larry ‘wide stance’ Craig’s bathroom sleaze are nauseating enough. Hell, if the GOP starts supporting gay marriage, I’m going third-party in a split-second. There’s no way in HELL I’m going to sit by and tolerate that.
I agree. He was very brave.
I just watched the video. If you ever get the chance, let him know that was amazing.
Look, some people are gay and so what...
that is why they invented doors and curtains...
after that, I am not in favor of approving it!
Mostly, because of the oft heard slippery slope...
once any so-called alternative lifestyle gets the nod...
every pervert and deviant will get on that line to gain approval!!
No matter how sick and twisted you are, if you can find someone like yourself...
you become a group and start clamoring for acceptance!!
The answer is NO!!
People do not want to admit the dirty little secret. All of these idiot pundits and all others refuse to admit it too. The fact that the dems had a freaking supermajority plus the WH and they could not get things passed. Why? Because they pander and lie to so many groups to get votes that they cannot please them all when legislation is brought up. That is a fact.
The GOP has nothing to do with why they cannot get what they want. They need only to look at themselves as their own worst enemy.
Years ago we were all treated as Americans based on the Constitution. Not anymore, we are fragmented bunches of spoiled babies who only care about a specific issue.
I am sick of it.
Once conservatives and Republicans accept the false premise that sexual proclivities deserve civil rights protection status we lose a lot more than a party we lose all pretense for conservative ideas of individual sovereignty and the freedom of association which has already been abridged significantly. A conservative homosexual would not seek to be identified as such. He would not see his sexual proclivities as a civil right but merely a personal choice something to be kept private. We’ve seen the same thing with the Republican flirtation with CAP and Trade. Why they think there is any advantage to be had by blurring these lines it is beyond me. Their are not a lot of votes to be gained by courting homosexuals and environmental nuts but the so called Moderates continue to insist on it.
The CPUSA meets at least as much as they do, and one of their members is POTUS.
FLIP SLICK WILLARD RINO ROMNEY AND ANY OF HIS SUPPORTERS AND THAT INCLUDES HANNITY AND COULTER BEST BEWARE.
NO MORE RINOS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Even more glad Sarah skipped this RINO gay festival. Appears Keene’s gay-PAC has officially jumped the shark.
Ann Coulter was on Hannity & calling from CPAC. She stated the good money was on Romney and in essence he was next in line like Reagan in 80. Very disappointing...and not one word of RomneyCare or Sarah was mentioned. Clearly, Coulter has moved toward the Republican Party RINO elites.
THE ROMNEY CANIDACY IS DEAD, DEAD, DEAD,and MORE DEAD, RIGHT NOW RIGHT HERE.
What boggles my mind is that a group like this ‘GOProud’ would form a membership based on some bizarre sexual fetish. What the hell does that have to do with being a Conservative? If they support Conservative values, then why in the world do they promote themselves as a sodomite group?
Exactly. They are the ones trying to silence any opposition and force their views on our children. I think most Americans are sick and tired of Homosexuals and their ego tripping. They demean the idea of civil rights to the level of copulation between two men or two women. It is a disgrace and not conservative at all.
