Skip to comments.Republican Gay-Rights Group, GOProud, to Throw Party at RNC
Posted on 08/22/2012 12:38:25 PM PDT by nickcarraway
The 2012 RNC is about to get faaaaabulous!
The gay conservative group GOProud will hold its Homocon 2012 event following the Republican National Convention in Tampa.
"Homocon 2012 will be the must have ticket for the RNC," the executive director and cofounder of GOProud, Jimmy LaSalvia, says on the group's website.
The event will include a number of conservative guest speakers, including Grover Norquist; Breitbart.com contributors Dana Loesch and Mike Flynn; and a former chair of the American Conservative Union and vice chair of CPAC, David Keene.
GOProud proudly proclaims on its website that it is the only gay conservative group to endorse Mitt Romney. We're not sure if that's because it is the only gay conservative group in existence (Log Cabin Republicans, can you hear us?) or because Romney's record on gay rights is shitty.
Says LaSalvia about Mitt: "We think that jobs, the economy, health care, retirement security, and taxes are all 'gay issues,' and on every single one of those issues, Mitt Romney is light-years better than President Obama."
And yet, ironically, Mitt Romney is still stuck in the Stone Age when it comes to gay equality.
GOProud cofounder and chief strategist Christopher R. Barron says that Homocon is a place where the GOP can showcase that it is totally down with the gays (except that it's not, in any way shape or form, but hey... LET'S PARTAY!): "Homocon 2012, like our previous events, will be more than just a party. It is an opportunity to show where the conservative movement is -- and where it is going -- in regards to the inclusion of gay people."
Brietbart.com -- who figures prominently in Homocon 2012's festivities this year -- insists that Romney is a friend to gays because, as this "ON THE RECORD" post says, he totally treats them humanely. Which, we suppose, is a step up from the way he treats dogs.
Yet, the record shows, over and over again, that Romney is far from being a friend to the gay and lesbian community:
-- RoboRomney believes marriage should exist only between a man and a woman.
-- He urged the adoption of a Massachusetts constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage.
-- He kept the fight to delay same-sex marriage in his state going. 'Cause there ain't no quit in RoboRomney!
-- ''If I have to choose between gay marriages and civil unions, I'll choose civil unions every time.''
-- Keep your meddling government away from my money! The right for two consenting same-sex adults to get married? MEDDLE AWAY!
-- You gays get out of my state, and take your gayness someplace else!
-- When gay marriage was made legal in Massachusetts, Mitt was the first to speak out against it before the Senate. Oh, that Mitt's a tenacious one!
-- Romney's statement to the Senate in that hearing: "Marriage is not an evolving paradigm, as the court said, but it is a fundamental and universal social institution that bears a real and substantial relation to the public health, safety, morals, and general welfare of all the people of Massachusetts." Them gays are gonna get married and gay up my state!
-- Oh and Romney blocked an antibullying guide because the guide had the words bisexual and transgender in it.
The GOProud folks might be all fired up to support their man Mitt. But ask Mitt to support them? They're hosed.
Homocon 2012 will be held August 28.
There. That's done.
That’s one party you better not pass out at...
“Republican Gay-Rights Group, GOProud, to Throw Party at RNC”
“Mayor: Absolutely Prepared To Call Off GOP Convention If Isaac Threatens Tampa”
This is one event that I’m betting I don’t get invited to attend.
And now Scott Brown is calling for the GOP to be more inclusive of pro choicers like himself.
The conversion is nearly complete.
Well yes it is a big con.
Homosexual activity is a mental illness not a choice of 2 equals
Homosexuals partying and indulging in pleasure. Doing what they do best!
Lol......yikes...’Homocon’ !! Sounds like a new comic book sidekick to Green Lantern. Lol
Is Romney going to attend?
Just in spirit.
Was looking for something to watch on TV late Monday evening - 4 different channels, 4 different types of programs, all dealing with gays, ranging from HGTV to Law and Order.
Just really, really tired of it.
“Isaac Threatens Tampa”
Name of Techno DJ at scheduled fag party.
What if they threw a party and no one came?
No decent Republican had better show up there. His/her career will be o-v-e-r.
The American people aren't taking kindley to the homosexual agenda these days.
Queerdom is no longer in style, dude.
Uhhhhh. a cancer is still a cancer no matter how healthy for ya it claims to be..
Was I right about Homocon?
Exclusive: Joseph Farah measures response to Ann Coulter’s appearance
Gosh, what an extreme position to take. /s
These homos have nothing to do with the RNC convention. They're just trying to insert themselves into it by having a perv party afterwords.
This is just more homo "In your face" crap.
The event is held at the HoneyPot Club, which is near the complex where my office is located.
If they want to act like democrat's I don't understand why they just don't become democrat's.
They just have a compulsion to contaminate the GOP with democrat directives.
