Andrew Breitbart Steps Down From GOProud Board After it Outs Perry Advisor
NY Magazine ^ | 12/9/2011 | Andre Tartar

Posted on 12/10/2011 2:20:25 PM PST by rintense

It's not all that surprising that, in the wake of Rick Perry's much-maligned anti-gay ad the other day, the gay conservative group GOPRoud ended up at the center of the ensuing media storm, fielding requests from reporters left and right. Except it seems that the group's director and chairman (inadvertently, they claim) created a gay-bashing brouhaha of their own by letting slip the true sexual orientation of Tony Fabrizio, a top strategist on the governor's presidential campaign. In an e-mail to the rest of the board — acquired by the Daily Caller — GOProud leaders Chris Barron and Jimmy LaSavlia defended themselves, basically by claiming that Fabrizio's in-or-out status wasn't exactly a closely-held secret.

Drama just seems to follow Perry and his camp. That said, outing is just dirty stuff. Glad Breitbart stood up for what's right.

Wouldn’t “gay conservative” be an oxymoron?

Good for Breitbart. He should’ve never joined the board in the first place. The homosexual agenda is a full-frontal attack on our first amendment rights and our moral society.

“Drama just seems to follow Perry and his camp.”

Poison just seems to seep from GOProud.

Breitbart sure chooses strange times to decide whats right, after supporting the gay agenda all this time.

I don’t think all homosexuals subscribe to the radical political agendas of the “gay community”.

Agreed. I know some gay conservatives who want nothing to do with any of that pink mafia crap. Heck, look at the good work Hillbuzz.org has done.

But that militant, pink mafia, agenda driven stuff has no place in politics, let alone any association with conservatism.

Is Breitbart gay? Just asking.

And I see no contradiction by the Perry campaign, if his aide wasn’t “openly serving”. Plus the army is different than civilain life.

You could ask his wife, the daughter of Orson Bean. They have 4 children. (Think it was mentioned in his book. It’s on Wikipedia too.)

Even Rick Perry Staffer Agrees that Anti-Gay Ad Is ‘Nuts’ is the one who was outed. Hmmm...

Breitbart isn’t gay, he just has to have his finger in everybody’s pie. Sometimes it backfires in a big way.

I believe recent studies have show conservatives to be, on the whole, happier that liberals, so no.

No, I know a lot of gay conservatives, they're just not into identifying themselves by their sexual preferences. You form a friendship with them for who they are not what they are.

Let the gay games 2012 begin. They’ve been itching to start them for months.

Everybody buckle up.

No. He’s a conservative family man. Whether he has any “gay” friends or relatives, I don’t know. Don’t understand why he’s sympathetic to GOProud. Coulter either. CPAC was nuts for going along with that crap.

It took Breitbart long enough to get a clue. I figure he regretted his decision to align himself with that group and just needed an excuse to bail. Anyway, better late then never. It will be interesting to see what Ann Coulter says about this.
