GOProud's Jimmy LaSalvia: Majority of conservatives embrace gay conservatives
Parker/Spitzer Blog ^ | Feb 24, 2011 | Jay Kernis

Posted on 02/24/2011 10:38:46 AM PST by DesertRenegade

In the news: Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie on Wednesday signed into law a bill that will legalize civil unions for same-sex couples in the Aloha State. Meanwhile, President Barack Obama has ordered the Justice Department to stop defending the constitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act, which defines marriage for federal purposes as only between a man and woman, according to a statement Wednesday from Attorney General Eric Holder.

ONLY ON THE BLOG: Answering today’s OFF-SET questions is Jimmy LaSalvia, Executive Director of GOProud, the only national organization representing gay conservatives and their allies.

According to its mission statement, “GOProud is committed to a traditional conservative agenda that emphasizes limited government, individual liberty, free markets and a confident foreign policy. GOProud promotes our traditional conservative agenda by influencing politics and policy at the federal level.”

This homosexual group is becoming more and more open about their agenda. I predicted this from the very start. They now seem giddy to work with Obama and James Carville's wife in order to mandate normalization of their lifestyle. If they truly believe in conservative values, why the hell did they form membership of their group based around bedroom sexual behavior? This is perversion gone wild.

I’d like to start the following groups within the Democratic Party:

1) pro-lifers
2) pro-growth tax-cutters
3) small government freedom-ers

Here’s a zinger from the interview:

LaSalvia: “Like GOPoud, she’s (Carville’s wife) staunchly conservative, but not conventional. She’s much more edgy and cool than your stereotypical stuffy conservative. I’m sure that the party at her house will be like most GOProud parties – a blast!”

When talking to other homosexuals, these cowards are quick to stereotype other conservatives. Then brag about their parties. Their highest priorities seem to be sex and partying.

With the debauchery into which our society is sliding, is it really any mystery as to why so many good conservatives shy away from running for President? Who in their right mind would want to preside over this mess?

“Conservative” and GOProud do not go together. I could not care less what your preferences are but DO NOT SHOVE THEM AT ME OR MY CHILDREN! By definition Conservatives do not act like GOProud does.

No one who supports these jerks or those who work with them is a real conservative.

It couldn’t be plainer. Their agenda is not to bring gay activists into the conservative movement, but to bring stupid pseudo-conservatives into the gay activist movement.

CPAC is dead. And I hope that Ann Coulter comes to her senses and repudiates her support for GOProud.

Hey sweetums. You don't speak for me. I don't care what you do in your bedroom. I do care about hearing what you do in your bedroom. I do not "embrace" sectioning off a part of the Conservative movement so you can let your freak flag fly.

This man is a subversive agent in the Conservative movement. I do not think for a moment that he is not a Rat plant.

I am constantly astounded by the number of FReepers who don't want gays to vote Republican. There are many reasons why they should, and it's possible to convince many to do so, if you can interact with them calmly, logically, and without bigotry.

"Gay marriage" is a silly desire, and I've already convinced one young gay man of this. This is a man who actually obtained one of those "marriages" done in SF a few years ago.

This young man doesn't vote yet, because he doesn't consider himself well informed. I've encouraged him to wait until he becomes better informed. In the mean time, I take occasional opportunities to educate him about areas where his interests are in-line with Republican interests.

It's more productive to educate people than to run around screaming "faggot".

“I am constantly astounded by the number of FReepers who don’t want gays to vote Republican”

What are you talking about. Of course I want gays to vote Republican. I also want pedophiles, wife-beaters, and 911 truthers to vote Republican. What I don’t want is these sick groups FORMING A GOP PAC NORMALIZING THEIR SICK LIFESTYLE!

Votes are one thing - flaunting and forcing your sodomite lifestyle on others is something entirely different. Would CPAC have welcomed a group calling itself GOPedo or GOPalchy or GOPilloppers?

They have no other interests. The only part of their environment that should be allowed in the party is their money in our coffers. Otherwise they have to stay away ~ the American voting public punishes Republicans and Conservatives for having them around.

They don't need an identity group to vote. They need one to push their AGENDA. We object to IDENTITY politics based on deviant sexual choices. We object to "special rights" based on deviant sexual choices.

Well, if this is something that you are "constantly astounded" by it won't be a problem for you to provide links where FReepers have suggested this. Can you do this or were you just repeating some leftist talking point?

There are many reasons why they should, and it's possible to convince many to do so, if you can interact with them calmly, logically, and without bigotry.

So, you think FReepers who opposed militant homosexuality are "bigots"?

It's more productive to educate people than to run around screaming "faggot".

Really? Tell us, when you are "educating" the sodomites do you tell them that they are engaging in deviant behavior that is almost certain to shorten their lives and cause numerous health problems? What precisely do you tell homosexuals when you are trying to "educate" them?

It's more productive to educate people that this issue is about opposing a homosexusl sex premised rights agenda. You miss the point completely by calling people 'gay' as if there is some immutable objective characteristic that identifies the homosexual species -this is much like calling abortion 'choice' and socialism 'progressive'.

You quack like a duck... Why should any conservative consider your views at best RINO?

Quack quack...

I think you may be misreading the opposition to GOProud. It is not their conservative voting that is being rejected, but their demand for special recognition and status based on their sexual orientation. The sectioning off into subgroups is the hallmark of the left...the opposite of the "melting pot". Why do you think the word "American" is always last in all of those hyphenated descriptions liberals use to describe themselves? Because the identity politics come first in their minds. That is what GOProud is doing. They are placing their sexual orientation above their supposed conservatism, and that is what is being rejected.

This nonsense, to many of us (Mary Matalin notwithstanding) this perverse behavior is unscriptural, both in the OT and NT, and goes against the express written laws of God. The homosexuals DEMAND that we have to EMBRACE their flouting of God’s laws; we MUST cheer on their “marriages” and fawn over their in-vitro children. Of course, it’s not the child’s fault how their parents “choose” to live, and they should be loved and accepted as all children should be. - Frankly, I have to live a practical life. I can’t keep up with Rosie O’Donnell’s “marriages”, divorces, and who she’s sleeping with now. I can’t get excited about Elton John and his “husband” “having a baby” because it does not compute. I think this GOProud thing is just another way to divide the RINOs.

Let me add that this organization promotes an agenda closer to the anarchy of libertarianism than the REPUBLICAN premised government moral order of society that comprises a FUNDAMENTAL plank of conservatism. The obvious thing missing with these morally devoid or at best morally moot anarchists God.

We are at war with Islam -do we stand with God or with homosexual sex? The answer is obvious. LMAO

I came off the plantation because I realized how much more fun it is to work and earn a living.

As for gay people, they need to understand several things. Personal responsbility is a whole part of the system. This means accepting the consequences for harmful behaviour.

You're damn right you struck a nerve.

Free Republic is a CONSERVATIVE forum, not some cesspool for homosexual apologists.

You said that a number of FReepers don't want homosexuals voting GOP, you were asked for proof and now you come up with a pathetic excuse.

You also suggested that FReepers who opposed militant homosexuality are bigots.

Now you say that OUR NAMES will do for a "quick shot in the dark." So tell me you lying POS where have any of us EVER suggested that homosexuals not vote GOP?

Nobody objects to them voting Republican. What planet are you from?

The whole gay movement when it first came out had as its rallying cry, *What we do in the privacy of our own bedrooms is nobody's business.*

From that moment on, they've made it our business. We are sick of them shoving this in our faces at every turn, demanding special privileges, and that it be accepted as normal.

It is not and never will be and we will not ever accept it as normal and allow special privileges to come with sexual preference.

If they don't like the reaction they're getting, it's because THEY are the ones who are not backing off. They can't be constantly be provoking others and then complain about the reaction.

As far as bigotry, go tell them as well to knock it off. You object to people calling them *faggots*. Then don't be a hypocrite and not object to them contemptuously calling us *breeders*.

You're stealth support of the homosexual agenda will not fly here. Sexual perversion is NOT normal and should not have special rights and protections by law.
