Romneys IL campaign chief Dan Rutherford says offended pro-family conservatives can go someplace else and drink
By Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH Exclusive
Folks, there is a reason that conservatives often jokingly call the Republican Party the stupid party (as opposed to the Democrats being the liberal party).
We learned today from the Chicago Sun-Times that the Illinois Republican Party delegation to the GOP convention in Tampa led by former legislator and current Illinois State Treasurer Dan Rutherford is partnering with a homosexual activist group that is pushing to close down what it calls the hate-filled, homophobic Chick-fil-A restaurants in the state.
Equality Illinois (EQ), the leading gay pressure group in the state, is sponsoring the IL-GOP event by covering the bar tab at the IL-GOP Beachside Cocktail Hour this evening in Clearwater, FL, where the Illinois delegation is staying. EQ, which lobbies aggressively to legalize homosexual marriage in the state, curiously combined its sponsorship with a fierce condemnation of the GOPs conservative platform particularly the partys call for a federal marriage amendment.
Recently, Equality Illinois led a pro-homosexual Flick-the-hate campaign to pressure leasing and rental companies to cut ties with the 19 Chick-fil-A restaurants in Illinois.

AND Myth Romney will probably serve as Grand Marshall.
The homonazis are really making a big mistake with this over the top, jack booted, goose stepping nonsense.
A lot of people like me, once upon a time, didn’t give a flying sh** about queers and what they do.
Now, with this “in yer face” hogwash, which to me is NO DIFFERENT from mudslimz, atheists, and commie pigs trying to force their belief system on me, Now, they have an ENEMY.
Where none existed before, they have created an enemy. I now shun the queers that I have socialized with in the past. When they start with the “whatzamatter? whatzwrong?”
I clue them in. Then, just like the mudslimz, they want to beg off by saying “you can’t blame me for those extremists!”
Yes I can and yes I do. They are YOUR fault, get them in line or get away from me.
They're in the business of selling food and are not privately owned like Chick-fil-A.
They wouldn’t and they didn’t. A poster said Wendy’s and McDs did not embrace gay marriage but were not boycotted. I still think it holds. Cathy spoke so he’s the bad guy.

You and me and a million others.
Very true words. Thank you for them and the link.
We've been talking and we decided it would be better if you didn't have your business here.
Rombot is just PUSHING FOR ME not to vote for him.
Meanwhile, in Missouri, GOP PhonyCons are trying to force out a Pro-Life conservative from the Senate race
Seems like a lot of those Illinois Gay GOP have been posting in the Akin threads
Bashing Christian conservatives on one side of the Mississippi...pandering to gays on the other side. Looks like conservatives may have to form their own third party
A third party sounds good right now....
I go to Chick Fil A regularly, both before and after the support Chick Fil A day and I can tell you that the best thing that can happen for Chick Fil A is for the Gays to keep up the boycott. The ones around me are packed every day.
Glad to hear it, good going! :-)
In other words, pro-life, pro-family conservatives, we don't need you. As if we needed any more evidence that we're just being used because they know we'll vote for the nominally pro-life, pro-family party. This year, the party is falling all over itself to convince me not to vote for any of its candidates. We're fighting an uphill battle, folks.
They don’t need proof. Allegations suffice for the fringe whackjob activists and their MSM lapdogs.
It’s so true, and it is saddening and above all appallingly infuriating.
Absolutely. So many of my pro-life, pro-family conservative friends are lifelong Republican activists. They've spent their entire adult lives trying to get like-minded people elected under the Republican banner. And this is the thanks they get?
Fortunately there's a decent young man running for the state legislature in my district - Sean Clark - and he seems to have his head on straight. I asked him some rather pointed questions about his stances on marriage, family, abortion, etc., and he answered them directly without any weaselly language. It'll be a joy to support him with my vote this November. But I don't feel as strongly about practically any other Republican in this year's race, all the way up and down the ballot. And that's especially true of how I feel about Mitt Romney.
