Skip to comments.The Gay Infiltration of the Conservative Movement
Posted on 02/22/2010 9:06:23 PM PST by DesertRenegade
California Young Americans for Freedom (YAF) chairman Ryan Sorba generated a media controversy when he was shown at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) denouncing the organizers for inviting a homosexual Republican group, GOProud, into the event as an official sponsor. In "controversial" remarks, Sorba said homosexuality was unnatural and that he welcomed more debate and discussion about the subject from his political adversaries.
But what many people don't realize is that Sorba's "outburst" was provoked by a speaker who preceded him, Alexander McCobin of Students For Liberty (SFL).
McCobin went out of his way to use valuable time from the podium to thank the American Conservative Union, the main CPAC organizer, for making the controversial decision to approve GOProud's participation.
David Keene, a lobbyist, is the chairman of the ACU and personally approved GOProud's involvement in CPAC.
Sorba told AIM, "I think CPAC went overboard this year. I don't think he [Keene] should be sitting at the top of CPAC." He noted that CPAC over the last several years has also allowed groups such as the ACLU to have exhibits at the event.
"What's next?," Sorba asked. "Are they going to have Republicans for Obamacare? Republicans for free abortions?"
Incredibly, McCobin of SFL told me that his group "is not a conservative organization" and that "We spent this past weekend reaching out to the left and the right at both the Young Democrats of America's convention and the Conservative Political Action Conference. We are not left or right."
If they are not conservative, Sorba asked, "What are they doing at CPAC?"
No stranger to controversy, Sorba is the author of the book, The Born Gay Hoax (this is a working draft) and was shouted down at Smith College by lesbian activists because of his support for traditional values.
CPAC is finished.
“Conservative” PAC not conservative any more.
Well, letting the ACLU set up there is one hint.
It’s not even libertarian. Libertarians are not all one on the gay issues that FUDGE-PAC is pushing.
Instead of boycotting, the Liberty Council and its philosophical counterparts shouldn’t have even bothered thinking of coming. I’m more embarrassed that they considered it than that they refused it.
From the looks of it, finished several years ago and all we are looking at is the zombie.
I’ve notices on uptick of pro-gay “conservatives” in the last few days. It seems they want to infiltrate everything and destroy it. What’s worse is that as soon as they feel somewhat comfortable, this scum start making fun of social conservatives.
“CPAC is finished.”
Well, they can always count on the gays to stay behind them...
Oh, the cruel and unusual pun-ishment this suggests....
Blow Up The Big Tent!
I don’t care if gays want to be conservatives. I’m ok with that. But they need to be conservative. Leave their liberal tendencies at the door.
however, on the other hand, there are plenty of straight conservatives that harbor a liberal idea or two on one issue or another. Why are the gay conservatives any different than these other “conservatives”?
Aided by RINOs like Skywalk.
Groups like GOProud aren’t the problem. Sorba nailed it. Keene, and Republicans like him (ahem, Bill Bennett) are the problem.
Tactic of progressive’s; has been for decades.
They haven’t infiltrated the conservative movement. They’ve only made it as far as the fake conservative movement, in other words the Republican Party.
More like a mark-cooler-outer.
this is part of the Clinton / Obama / Rahm Emmanuel counterattack to the conservative grass roots.
The RACIST charge didn't work, so they're working on HOMOPHOBE.
And the answer is to post unedited pictures of the Folsom Street Fair, and ask them to defend THAT.
To anger a conservative, tell him a lie; to anger a liberal, tell him the truth.
“Oh, the cruel and unusual pun-ishment this suggests....”
Quite an anal-ogy, eh?
Right now I am on the CPAC 2010 Facebook page being stuned by the ronpaulite idiocy on there.
HB 4530 would bring it into elementary schools.
These people are sick and perverted.
How did they worm themselves into a “Conservative” Political Action Committee? We know the GOP ranges virtually to the screaming left. GOProud outdoes even that in two-facedness.
I won’t be surprised if these f*gs are closet lib Trojan horses. If they were truly conservative, they wouldn’t make an issue of their abominable lifestyle.
In the past, CPAC allowed the ACLU to have a booth at the gathering. Keene is a money whore willing to promote any group that pays him.
Really, there need to be serious marches of “Call us homophobes, we don’t care!” Got to take the shock value of that word AWAY.
Reminds me of the Huffington's penetration of the Republican Party in California and national politics. He , a homosexual leftist Congressman (R-CA) , quickly retreated to his Democrat home when outed. Arianna of course was always a Greek Communist and had no problem fitting right in with East Coast socialists.
They say Romney basically owns CPAC. Is it any wonder there is gay sponsorship?
I really don’t see these people voting for McCain/Palin over Obama. They aren’t conservative voters. They aren’t even GOP voters. They are plants.
RINOs, unprincipled hacks, pro-aborts, pro-homosexuals, neoconfederates, isolationists, Libertarians, personality cult groupies...the GOP is becoming quite the coalition.
There's nothing they won't stoop to.
The Rockefellerite RINOs live.
>if gays want to be conservatives. Im ok with that.<
1. They cannot be conservatives or promote conservatism, even as regards fiscally and traditional constitutional interpretation, much less morally, as the former in the long term relies upon the latter, as long as they sanction or promote homosexuality.
2. The homosexuality movement relies upon deceit and its psychological tactics, and works toward censure of all opposition, and so GOPride ultimately would promote fascism, and its infiltration in the CPAC and intolerance there would be just a precursor of a larger work.
3. More critically, war against the God of the scriptures is suicidal, and America is already paying part of a much greater price for so doing, and homosexuality certainly part of that rebellion. http://peacebyjesus.witnesstoday.org/RevealingStatistics.html http://peacebyjesus.witnesstoday.org/Homosex_versus_the_Bible.html
I’d believe that Quaker guy, what’s his name? But Romney, that is beyond strange.
This type of tripe is from the fifth column in the GOP and CPAC. I say ignore it. The infiltrators want us to spin our wheels and spend a lot of time on these things thinking that we need to reorganize instead of focusing on the next election. We need to stop making this mistake of the immediate obsession and focus on the longer goal. Forward to November. Forward to victory. Don’t be distracted. Forward with Confidence!
Gays can be conservatives. As long as they are not pushing the gay agenda like the log cabiners do.
You are right.
CONSERVATIVE gays would be focused on issues of personal liberties and privacy, besides the standard plate of financial responsibility and national security. I see no problem with their inclusion.
Demanding the gay agenda of goverenment recognition and promotion of their lifestyle in any form, from special rights and legal recognition of gay marriage to inclusion in school curiculum and sex education is the LIBERAL agenda and must be immediately denounced and expelled.
GOProud= Log Cabin. No difference.
It is rare to hear of gays being gay in private nowadays. No, the whole neighborhood, if not the whole town, has to know. Seems that vice has forgotten even the hypocrisy which used to be its tribute to virtue.
With a fancier name
You tell me if I haven’t presented the case perfectly in post 33.
“Gays can be conservatives. As long as they are not pushing the gay agenda like the log cabiners do.”
Hahahhaha...you rest your case? I imagine a gay conservative would be like a straight bartender in a gay bar...he might think he is there for only one reason, but would probably be kidding himself about what it really is.
They better get their shiite together or they'll be left floating in the harbor when the Tea Party schooner fills her sails.
I think the conservative community needs to be warned of lurking “ironies” like this CPAC. Too many might donate to a Trojan horse like that.
Somewhere along the line “The Love That Dare Not Speak It’s Name” became “The Love That Won’t Shut Up.”
Nah, there are a few out there. I know at least one such lezbo. Has no use for the gay “scene”.

I don’t mind that, as long as government keeps its mouth shut and hands off in any form. People can make up their own minds whether to associate with it or not.
“Ax” yourself this question: If they’re vile enough to do what they do, are they also vile enough to be treacherous - to pretend to be with us, then get a kick out of actually voting for a party Evil enough to more openly try to give them what they want?
Conservatism would always have to be “relative” for active homosexuals. It would be virtually impossible for them to be of a single mind about how they are living, at the least. Questions would darkly hang.
They didn’t “worm their way in” to anything. They walked in the front door waving a check and Keene said “welcome conservative!”
How do you think Romney, the most liberal Governor in the history of the United States, became the darling of CPAC?
Huckabee was right. He’s not always right but he nailed this one before many others.
