Skip to comments.The Gay Infiltration of the Conservative Movement

California Young Americans for Freedom (YAF) chairman Ryan Sorba generated a media controversy when he was shown at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) denouncing the organizers for inviting a homosexual Republican group, GOProud, into the event as an official sponsor. In "controversial" remarks, Sorba said homosexuality was unnatural and that he welcomed more debate and discussion about the subject from his political adversaries.
But what many people don't realize is that Sorba's "outburst" was provoked by a speaker who preceded him, Alexander McCobin of Students For Liberty (SFL).
McCobin went out of his way to use valuable time from the podium to thank the American Conservative Union, the main CPAC organizer, for making the controversial decision to approve GOProud's participation.
David Keene, a lobbyist, is the chairman of the ACU and personally approved GOProud's involvement in CPAC.
Sorba told AIM, "I think CPAC went overboard this year. I don't think he [Keene] should be sitting at the top of CPAC." He noted that CPAC over the last several years has also allowed groups such as the ACLU to have exhibits at the event.
"What's next?," Sorba asked. "Are they going to have Republicans for Obamacare? Republicans for free abortions?"
Incredibly, McCobin of SFL told me that his group "is not a conservative organization" and that "We spent this past weekend reaching out to the left and the right at both the Young Democrats of America's convention and the Conservative Political Action Conference. We are not left or right."
If they are not conservative, Sorba asked, "What are they doing at CPAC?"
No stranger to controversy, Sorba is the author of the book, The Born Gay Hoax (this is a working draft) and was shouted down at Smith College by lesbian activists because of his support for traditional values.
CPAC is finished.
“Conservative” PAC not conservative any more.
Well, letting the ACLU set up there is one hint.
It’s not even libertarian. Libertarians are not all one on the gay issues that FUDGE-PAC is pushing.
Instead of boycotting, the Liberty Council and its philosophical counterparts shouldn’t have even bothered thinking of coming. I’m more embarrassed that they considered it than that they refused it.
From the looks of it, finished several years ago and all we are looking at is the zombie.
I’ve notices on uptick of pro-gay “conservatives” in the last few days. It seems they want to infiltrate everything and destroy it. What’s worse is that as soon as they feel somewhat comfortable, this scum start making fun of social conservatives.
“CPAC is finished.”
Well, they can always count on the gays to stay behind them...
Oh, the cruel and unusual pun-ishment this suggests....
Blow Up The Big Tent!
I don’t care if gays want to be conservatives. I’m ok with that. But they need to be conservative. Leave their liberal tendencies at the door.
however, on the other hand, there are plenty of straight conservatives that harbor a liberal idea or two on one issue or another. Why are the gay conservatives any different than these other “conservatives”?
Aided by RINOs like Skywalk.
Groups like GOProud aren’t the problem. Sorba nailed it. Keene, and Republicans like him (ahem, Bill Bennett) are the problem.
Tactic of progressive’s; has been for decades.
They haven’t infiltrated the conservative movement. They’ve only made it as far as the fake conservative movement, in other words the Republican Party.
More like a mark-cooler-outer.
this is part of the Clinton / Obama / Rahm Emmanuel counterattack to the conservative grass roots.
The RACIST charge didn't work, so they're working on HOMOPHOBE.
And the answer is to post unedited pictures of the Folsom Street Fair, and ask them to defend THAT.
To anger a conservative, tell him a lie; to anger a liberal, tell him the truth.
“Oh, the cruel and unusual pun-ishment this suggests....”
Quite an anal-ogy, eh?
Right now I am on the CPAC 2010 Facebook page being stuned by the ronpaulite idiocy on there.
HB 4530 would bring it into elementary schools.
These people are sick and perverted.
How did they worm themselves into a “Conservative” Political Action Committee? We know the GOP ranges virtually to the screaming left. GOProud outdoes even that in two-facedness.
I won’t be surprised if these f*gs are closet lib Trojan horses. If they were truly conservative, they wouldn’t make an issue of their abominable lifestyle.
