STRANGE BEDFELLOWS: Breitbart Is Throwing an '80s-Themed Gay Party
National Journal ^ | January 19, 2011 | John Hudson

Posted on 01/22/2011 11:09:11 AM PST by Tolerance Sucks Rocks

For months, the family values wing of the Republican Party has been protesting the inclusion of GOProud, a right-wing gay group, at this year's Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). You won't hear any protesting, however, from conservative media mogul Andrew Breitbart.

"We're going to have a big ol' gay party," he said on a radio show Wednesday. Breitbart says gays deserve a place within the Republican Party and he's been "offended" by efforts to exclude them. Therefore, he's throwing an 80's-themed gay party to welcome them on board.

If this sounds like uncharacteristic behavior for Breitbart, his additional remarks should clear things up:

I am not endorsing gay marriage, I'm not endorsing Don't Ask, Don't Tell. I will be the harshest critic of the activist gay left, who I fear more than al-Qaida. But for these people not to exist in a two-party system, for you to tell them they're not welcome in the big tent, I have a huge problem with that and I'm going to indulge in my all '80s Depeche Mode, Cure, New Order fetish and we're going to have a big 'ol gay party at CPAC.
Al-Qaida—really? Here's some Depeche Mode to cool down some of that hot talk:

Depeche Mode - Just Can't Get Enough (Music Video) from Depeche Mode on Vimeo.

Harumph. I am not impressed. A stick in the eye to family values.

A stick in the eye to socially conservative principles.

Regardless of what you think about your politics, celebrating homosexuality is as leftist as you can get.

“I am not endorsing gay marriage, I’m not endorsing Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”

I’m almost certain that “gorpoud” do. Can someone please confirm?

So that would make them your “activist gay left”, like Al Qaida”, wouldn’t it.

How is having a ‘gay party’ showing that you just think gays should be able to vote conservative? Why not just say that? Depeche Mode? Oh, the guys dancing together. Yeah, Andrew that’s real ‘big tent’ of you. Liberal sickness is creeping in. There’s a line to draw with tolerance.

But he’ll embrace the activist gay right, dammit!

Sorry, this is kinda pitiful and I’m embarrassed for him.

An 80’s themed gay party? He’s acting like a guy who really, really wants to be liked and just fit in with who he thinks are the cool kids.

If they are real conservatives we wouldn’t even know they are gay. They wouldn’t identify themselves by their sexual perversions.

Not yet, anyway. Can’t help but think that isn’t far behind tho.

In any event, other GOProud advocates think that detractors are some pretty bad peeps:

“Mr. Sorba’s so-called “conservatism” is actually familiar. His is the usual opponent of classical liberalism: a totalitarian vision functionally identical in structure (if not goals) to radical Islam and the neo-communist Left. Mr. Sorba believes he can use the federal government to create his anti-gay utopia in which “sodomites” can be imprisoned:”

So that explains no bigsodomyagenda.com website.

Hopefully he will see his error and realize that homosexual acts have been considered immoral for thousands of years for a reason, along with robbery, fornication, rape, etc.

Just because all people don’t avoid immorality and just because laws can’t be enforced 100% perfectly, legalizing immorality won’t cure the problems it creates for society.

And people decry the moral lapse of their leaders wasting government money for their own political gain - if society is allowing immorality to run rampant, government and business leaders will reflect that. I would expect to see all sorts of crass behavior by politicians nowadays because there is a general acceptance of immorality; there’s no reason why leaders would not be a part of the moral tailspin.

We are going to have some very crazy looking family trees down the road, a lot of which will be lies.

As long as we have had Judeo-Christian civilization our ancestors have known that anal sex warps the mind. And that applies to heterosexuals too. Normal people have normal sex at their disposal but by definition all gay sex that involves penetration is anal. Disgusting and unhealthy. God did not make the rectum for sex

Judaism was a reaction against paganism that involved human sacrifice and bizarre sex between men and beasts. We are sliding backwards as we give gays the OK sign.

Any support for this pervert by Fox, Hannity, etc... and they can all be on my mute button for good.

This sick pervert needs to be shunned by conservatives regardless of any investigative work that he does.

I know he has been featured on conservative media programs before as an ally but it is all an effort to undermine conservative principles.

"Should Gays Be a Part of the Conservative Movement? Part II"

Sure...all they have to do is stop being homosexual, and denounce that particular immoral, vile, disgusting, disease-spreading lifestyle, and they can be conservative. Provided, of course, they're also pro-2nd Amendment, pro-military, pro-secure borders, pro-life, pro-business, pro-limited government, etc.

Nobody said they couldn’t be in the party. We don’t want them running the place or setting the agenda. Just like, I don’t want to kick them out of church. They are welcome to have a seat. But the moment they get up into the pulpit and start defining the theology I’m out of there.

Breitbart is being played like a violin. I was not aware he was so ignorant e.g. his principles are not firmly rooted in understanding of truth as evidenced by his lack of cogent action here.

The same flawed argument he uses to justify his support of homosexual sex; e.g. no political discrimination of homosexual sex is legitimate; is the same argument that the progressives he now lends his name to use to promote "homosexual marriage".

Breitbart is lost. I hope he eventually gets a clue.

Brietbart, Gutfeld and other “hip conservatives” subscribe to the settled-science of the non-existent gay gene the same exact way the greens subscribe to the settled-science of non-existent anthropogenic global warming. It’s a feel-good fraud that makes life a lot easier for people, like Andrew and Greg, who live in major urban centers and work and socialize with many homosexuals.

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2568057/posts

Fully half of GOProud’s top 10 federal priorities center on using the Government to advance homosexuality, including: #4 – “Repealing ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’” – Homosexualizing the military is reckless, especially in wartime. GOProud claims to defend “individual liberty,” but what about the privacy rights of normal soldiers who don’t want to bunk and shower with men who lust after other men? Moreover, if DADT is repealed, the military will become a massive government bureaucracy for pro-homosexual “diversity” – subjecting millions of tradition-minded servicemen to Orwellian, same-sex propaganda to enforce its new lavender crusade. (Chaplains: beware.)

# 7 – “Opposing any anti-gay federal marriage amendment.” Coulter must know that America might be just one Supreme Court justice away from legalizing oxymoronic homosexual “marriage” – which would undermine religious freedom in every state in the nation. A Federal Marriage Amendment could be the only way to stop this Roe v. Wade-like disaster. And since when did state-enforced homosexual “marriage” – with its corrosive effect on liberty and linkage to Homosexuality Promotion in schools — become “conservative”?

GOProud is non-committal on ENDA (Employment Non-Discrimination Act), which would federalize workers’ “rights” based on homosexuality and gender confusion. A truly conservative organization would fight this federal power grab — and GLBT lawyers’ dream legislation — tooth and nail. Ann, are you aware that these days it’s Christians like Julea Ward and Matt Barber who defend biblical truth – not “gays” – who are victims of corporate discrimination?

Breitbart is not and to my knowledge has never claimed to be a ‘conservative.’ He’s a libertarian. However he’s done more for the ‘conservative’ cause than most who self-describe themselves as such.

He attacked Obama Eligibility people for asking for Obama to release his long-form birth cert....and Breitbart attacked Birthers at a Tea Party rally last year.

And, I have not even got into his helping start up the Huffington Post

Andrew Breitbart is no Conservative.
