Guess Who's Coming to CPAC? (Breitbart & Norquist Gush Over GOProud in Homosexual Publication)
MetroWeekly ^ | 02/09/2011 | Chris Geidner

Posted on 02/10/2011 8:46:00 AM PST by Pyro7480

...Calling this "a maturing point for the conservative movement," Breitbart minces no words: "If being conservative means rejecting gay conservatives because they are gay, then fine, I'm not a conservative."

..."No, we're not giving cover to bigots," he [Chris Barron of GOProud] argues. "What we're doing is separating the people who don't agree with the left-wing agenda from the real bigots. You can be against ENDA and hate crimes and federal safe schools legislation and not be a bigot. If you're Tony Perkins, you're a bigot. You're against all of that stuff not because of any federalist reasons, but actually because you're just a nasty, anti-gay bigot."

..."There are socially conservative groups who are a part of CPAC. You have the pro-life groups, you have education – school choice groups, all kinds of Second Amendment groups," he [Jimmy LaSalvia of GOProud] says. "Lots of social conservatives are represented at CPAC."

"And we're at CPAC. It's still the preeminent conference of conservatives in the country. The groups who aren't there are the anti-gay groups. That's it."

...Going to the substance of what he says is the primary reason for his support of GOProud, Breitbart says, "I believe, to the core of my being, that what I'm doing is supported by the vast majority of the people who consider themselves conservatives in this country."

...Barron looks at the landscape: "We've said all along that we don't think that the conservative movement is unwelcoming to gay people. There is a fringe element. A really nasty, anti-gay, bigoted element. And we have smoked them out, and we have marginalized them."

The truth comes out... GOProud's statements here and elsewhere all add up to this group trying to marginalize the traditional marriage groups.

Being conservative must mean rejecting those who organize their lives around a vice. I've known some fine conservative alcoholics. As soon as they organize the Drunkservative organization, we part ways.

who exactly made Barron and Breitbart the preeminent, super duper experts and spokespersons for conservatism? “We have marginalized them” (?) Sounds like a liberal to me.

There is a difference between respecting a person’s right to do what they want to in their own bedroom, and not promoting homosexual relationships as being no different from and equally valuable as heterosexual relationships.

Unfortunately, if you want to be invited to the right parties, you have to pretend to see no difference between a parade of grown men in chaps, and a march civil rights march in Selma Alabama.

Good grief. Do we really have the time to go over all this? No one "hates" gays. I could care less what they do with their orifices.

MY beef...Marriage at it's very creation is biblical. The power players in the "gay community" do not represent most gays and they don't want "rights", they could get that with civil unions, they want to discredit biblical values and shove a rewritten "Word" down everyone's throat. That is not conservative...it's fascist.

If you don’t agree with the left-wing agenda then you’re a real bigot? Who is this homo?

GOProud is conservative as long as it includes homosexuals as a special group, healthcare, social security, homosexual marriage etc..

If being conservative means rejecting politics of group identification, are you still a 'conservative'?

Excellent post. Evidently, Brietbart & friends no longer hold to the same origins of morality that traditional conservatives use and they wish to "marginalize" us.

I’m not surprised that Grover Norquist is doing this. But I’m very disappointed in Andrew Breitbart.

OK, as far as I’m concerned, Breitbart is all washed up. Finished. Done.

It cannot be repeated too often. There is a big difference between homosexuals who do their thing (which is bad enough) and homosexual activists who want to impose their lifestyles on the entire country, including kindergarteners.

And as for GOProud, there is a big difference between spreading conservative values in the homosexual community and spreading homosexual advocacy in the conservative community. GOProud is only interested in spreading homsexual values. There leader has said exactly that, and it’s clear enough from their takeover of CPAC. It’s nothing but Log Cabin Republicans on steroids.

Why do you think that? Seventy-five percent of homosexuals vote for Democrats. All of the "Republican" and "conservative" homosexual groups (Log Cabin Republicans, GOProud) have a similar objectives as the Democratic party in regard to promoting homosexuality.

CPAC is going to come apart as a result of this. It won’t happen immediately, but when conservatives begin to understand the full extent of the factionalism that is being promoted by Norquist and others there will be a major backlash. I’m hoping Mark Levin will lead the charge against this poisonous nonsense. Pseudo-conservatives like David Frum will be rubbing their hands with glee over the success of this divide and conquor strategy.

Because the Dems still pretend to be reasonable..when they are not.

Most the gays I know are like the majority of the population..they watch political TV two weeks prior to elections, vote and then never pay attention until the next time around. They have jobs and families and they just want to be left alone. If you talk to them about the "gay agenda" most of them think it's nuts.

This is a great country to be gay in when you look at the world as a whole and they are not out to force anyone to change for them...of all people I think they can understand pure bullying and that is what the "leaders" here are about...not "gay rights".

It's the same with the "leadership" of the feminist movement, it's been overrun by extreme fascist leftists that couldn't care less about woman's rights and care more about big government totalitarianism.

Every worthwhile movement in the country has been taken over by big government nut wackos.

Homosexuality is a sin. Lying is a sin. Stealing(cheating on your taxes) is a sin. The very thought of foolishness is sin. God has a low threshold for sin. It is man who wants to put degrees on the awfulness of sin.

Ask my personal opinion on homosexuality and I will tell you. It is sin. Having said that, I have worked with homosexuals at several companies. As long as they did their job, supported company goals, we worked well together. Outside of work, we parted ways.

My point is conservative ideals are much larger than just whatever we call the coupling of homosexuals. If they support limited government, lower taxes, American exceptionalism, a strong national defense, and are law abiding, what they do in private can’t be controlled. They are going to do it anyway.

Jesus said,”Let him without sin cast the first stone”. From the oldest to youngest they walked away. Why? The longer one lives the more one learns how far short of God’s standard they truly fall.

The oldest ones left first because they knew they broke the law and could be stoned.

The law was that both the man and the woman had to be judged together. AND they had to be caught in the act. There had to be witnesses. If you accused someone and the law wasn't followed, you suffered their punishment. Stoning to death. Had ONE Pharisee cast a stone they could also be stoned to death.

The Pharisees were trying to set up Jesus but didn't follow the law. The Scripture states that the oldest dropped their stones first because THEY knew the law. And they knew the punishment.

I think it's safe to say that anybody who hates the concept of recognizing that marriage is only for heterosexuals is a bigot.

If homosexuals want to work with us because we are willing to respect their private lives, they certainly should because we do.

Some of Grover Norquist's other friends, however, . . .

And why does Breitbart think anal sex is something that shouldn't be at the very least discouraged?

"No, we're not giving cover to bigots,"

They will not reason the concept that marriage is exclusively a biblical created state, they cannot reason that changing the meaning voids and discredits the bible as a whole and they dare not reason what would happen if the meaning of marriage could be opened to the joining of any and all men or beasts.

He that will not reason is a bigot; he that cannot reason is a fool; and he that dares not reason is a slave.

I didn’t used to care much about GOProud. After reading this spew by this clown who demands approval of his faggotry or screams “You’re a bigot” - I have a very unfavorable opinion of the group.

It is not “bigotry” to find two men kissing distasteful. It is not “bigotry” to find two men having anonymous sex in a public restroom extremely distasteful. It is not “bigotry” to find oral-anal contact disgusting.

It’s common sense. FOAD, GOProud.

The bottom line is God states clearly choosing a homosexual lifestyle is not only wrong but an abomination.

I always go with the big Guy and whatever He says.

Anyone who chooses homosexuality lifestyle or chooses to defend it simply chooses to disagree with God. That is dangerous and quite arrogant to think one knows better than Him.

Perhaps it is time to put the mechanism in motion to take it to the next level.

Sarah or Michele may not have as big a ears as Perot.. however, the TEA Party is both long overdue and obviously necessary to influence opinion and preserve what we can after such an orchestrated attack by enemies both without and within, all the while our security folks are either clueless or unwitting co-conspirators to a nation’s cultural demise.

The old ‘Taxation without Representation’ gambit still rings true today as a motivation as strong as it did way back when this Republic came into being.. perhaps more so, look at the price to be paid for this nation to continue its ruinous path.

Nero has his blinders on, the empire is burning from within, we aren’t that far removed from what is happening in Egypt..

This isn't about what GOProud members do in private, and never has been. The very claim is disingenuous. This is about GOProud, by their own admission, trying to purge the GOP of social conservatives.

We have the most inept clown EVER running the country. He is in the process of DECEIVING the “sheeple” in to believing he is moving to the middle from the extreme far-left. Even Charles Krauthammer acknowledges this ruse predicting an immediate return to the left fringe if Obama is re-elected.

If the GOP, GOProud, social conservatives, fiscal conservatives, and any/every other conservative group can’t come together with the common goal of defeating Obama in the next election, then we will deserve the liberal/socialist/statist hell hole this country will continue to become under his leadership.

We are ONE Supreme Court Justice(Scalia, Alito, Roberts, Thomas, Kennedy) away from an extreme leftist, America destroying, majority on the SC. Can’t WE all come together to make sure that doesn’t happen? I am starting to doubt it. The “purity” and “litmus” test mentality that dominates what makes up the GOP is disheartening.

Amen about Breitbart. Looks like the conspirators are trying to split the social conservatives. I think they are still holding on to the pro-life people because they have pacs that give a lot of money to pro-life candidates. If they didn’t have that money and organization Breitbart and Norquist would throw them under the bus.

It looks like the pro-lifers and the NRA owe CPAC favors from years gone by. It looks to me like CPAC is doing a “rope-a-dope” on the pro-life and gun people by suddenly adding the Muslims, gays and libertarians, their heads must be spinning. CPAC is not a friend to the pro-life and gun groups, they have been using them all along. Isn’t this what has been wrong with politics for so long? What we have not been aware was going on for many years? Now people are seeing what is behind the faux “conservative” label. How many other wolves in sheeps clothing are there out there? It always comes down to who is for the elite insiders and who is for the people. These frauds have been talking the talk for years but they had their own selfish secret agendas. Let them all be exposed so that they can be brought down from their places of power.
