GOProud: No regrets for supporting Trump despite major donation to Democrat
Daily Caller ^ | 2/17/2011 | Chris Moody

Posted on 02/17/2011 12:28:41 PM PST by DesertRenegade

The gay conservative group GOProud doesn’t regret inviting real-estate mogul and possible 2012 Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump to speak at a conservative conference last week, even though he donated $50,000 to former White House Chief of Staff and Democratic Chicago mayoral candidate Rahm Emanuel.

“We have absolutely no regrets in inviting and promoting Mr. Trump at CPAC,” GOProud Chairman Christopher Barron told The Daily Caller. “Why in the world would we? Mr. Trump stole the show on Thursday, brought new energy and enthusiasm to the conference and delivered a hell of a speech.”

Trump was a last-minute surprise addition to the list of speakers at the Conservative Political Action Conference, where presidential hopefuls traditionally test the campaign waters in front of thousands of activists. Barron said at the time that he “would love to see Mr. Trump run” and Trump has said that he is “absolutely thinking about it.”

Trump’s speech at the conference caused a ruckus among some younger members of the crowd when he said that Texas Rep. Ron Paul had “zero chance” of ever being elected president.

Barron added that Trump’s choice could be justified, given the alternative in the race.

“Would it have been better if he gave $50,000 to Carol Moseley-Braun?” he said, referring to Rahm’s arguably more liberal opponent.

Just as I predicted, the militant homosexual group GOProud is a front group for pushing DemRat issues (just like Log Cabin was exposed as doing). Trump is about as far from being conservative as you can get.

"Barron said at the time that he “would love to see Mr. Trump run”

I wonder if this guy realizes that this week, Trump said that marriage should only be recognized if it's between a man and a woman.

Trump is about as far from being conservative as you can get.

On a few issues, yep. On most, he's personal responsibility straight across the board, and even on some of the most liberal issues he's fond of, he's been clear in the past that a lot of it isn't part of the government's business in the first place.

Would I prefer he'd be more conservative on some social issues? Absolutely. Is it a deal breaker for me? No. Unlike Huckabee, McCain, and Romney, he's not interested in pushing those social viewpoints on others through the power of government. And that counts for an awful lot in my book.

Trump is a democrat not a republican, he supported Obama’s run in 08 and he donated money to Rahm’s bid in Ill.

GOProud invited Trump to CPAC despite the fact that Trump isn't Conservative. Neither is GOProud. And this article shows that.

and what you agreed with
Do you not have a problem with the homo agenda and would you vote for Trump who has said he’s a Dem, he has given mroe to Dems and wanted Clinton back in office?

Trump gave money to Rahm’s campaign because the alternative candidates would be a disaster, and Trump has business interests in Chicago, including Chicago’s version of Trump Tower. He wants to have some influence and voice in what happens with the business climate in the city of Chicago. He has vested financial and real estate interests in Chicago and he wants to protect them politically, as best he can. He is a shrewd and practical businessman. If Carole Mostly Fraud or Gary Chico got into office, it could be very detrimental to doing businesss in Chicago. Rahm will be much more practical and is the least of three evils by far.

This is almost exactly what happened to the forerunner homosexual group to GOProud, “Log Cabin”. An investigation uncovered that a huge portion of their funding was coming form a super rich homosexual Democrat Tim Gill. I’m not surprised at all that this GOProud is looking like the same kind of front group.

correct.
this goproud was founded right after the log cabins were busted for being Dems and funded by Dems.

their whole mission was to infiltrate the right and CPAC.

Niow this homo groups invites others who are not conservatives but are attention media seeking, Dem contributer as Trump is

I believe that the government should not be in the business of social engineering of any kind.

Personally, I think homosexuality is morally wrong, disgusting and unhealthy. But, if folks want to burn in Hell, that's their business.

Would I vote for Donald Trump? If him or Obama are my only two choices, yes. Is he my first, second or 10th choice? No, but I'd take Trump over Romney, Huckabee or the other 2008 retreads.

Trump would represent the dog with less fleas, which is hardly a good thing to be.

so you have no problem with a father marrying his daughter at aged 15?
No problem wiht a crack house right next to a school?
A man marrying and having sex with animals?

I could go on but I think you get my point but I am interested in your answers.

Those examples you listed are all against the law (I hope).

People need to govern themselves by having a moral compass and knowing right from wrong. The problem is that the government (IMO) has blurred the lines and we end up with serious problems (see the “War on Poverty”).

Passing more and more laws isn't the answer. People having common sense, self control and knowing good from bad would go a long way to curing many of the problems we have today. Those are things taught by family and friends, not by bureaucrats of one ilk or another.

Is Trump 'flip-flopping' or evolving? - February 17, 2011

Trump has said in interviews with CNN that he identifies more with Democrats than Republicans; that the party handles the economy better than Republicans; that President George W. Bush was "probably the worst president in the history of the United States"; and suggested that Bush should have been impeached for what Trump called "lies" over a "horrendous mistake": the Iraq war.

In 1999, while flirting with running for president under Ross Perot's Reform Party, Trump told the New York Daily News that he supported abortion rights and universal health care.

snip

Now he says he's very Conservative. In 2004 he said "Well, you'd be shocked if I said that in many cases I probably identify more as a Democrat," Trump said. "And it just seems that the economy does better under the Democrats than the Republicans.

That's a big fat NO MORE RINOS.

homo's getting married was against the law too in MA once upon a time until these sick people forced their version of morals on to the people.

So if incest was made legal, and then daughter married father would you have a problem with it.

I ask this because when people state they are against the Govt getting involved on social issues everyone minus one said they do have a problem and then they rethink their version of what the Govt should be involved in.

Sounds good though doesn't it , you know people should govern, keep the Govt out, family brings morals but in the real world there are sick freaks who will have incest, who will want law for them who do want to have sex with animals .
Hey even in MA there was a guy who got caught having sex with a goat.

Trump is definitely better than Romney while Huckabee is definitely preferable to Trump. At least, Huckabee could be trusted to appoint judges to courts.

I would imagine the homosexual sex group GOProud's 15 minutes is about up now?

Other than attending the increasingly less conservative FudgePAC conference and associating them homosexual sex brand with some conservative name recognition (which is not defined GOP) what exactly have they done for the conservative cause?

LMAO --NOTHING!!!!!!

These perverts simply wish to ride the coat tails of the ta party much like their spineless RINO counterparts do.

The homosexual sex perverts are the fleas on the RINO tail attempting to wag the conservative dog!

Totally agree!

If incest is made legal for example, would I have a problem with it? Of course! What sane man would have sex with his daughter? Same as two fairies or two bull dykes getting “married” or banging.

The problem is, for these cases, you do need laws exactly because some critters have no morals. That's the problem: The only way to fix the problem is to pass a law, which gives politicians more power to pass more laws.

The breakdown of society that started in the 1960’s has been devastating on this country and in turn, the world.

I couldn’t agree more with you.

Plus, GOProud is very tricky. They proclaim that it’s wrong for Republicans to talk about social issues, meaning that Reagan was “wrong” as were America’s Founding Fathers.

Note too that these statements are directed at social conservatives not social liberals.

Of course, after telling Republicans to shut up on gay marriage etc. they then start welcoming Democrat activists and supporters to CPAC events, like Sophie B. Hawkins (a Hillary girl). What a scam.

I have to agree. As you can tell from my name, I’m also in Mass so I’ve seen what it was like under Mitt. He destroyed what was left of the Republican party and I’m not sure it will ever truly return.

I wish people could understand what it’s like in this Commonwealth. it’s an incredible place with everything, culture, the arts, education, the mountains, the ocean, everything. But we have a truly “blue” state mentality and we need to shake things up.

Welcome to FR!

I calculate ~35% of the voters in this state have a clue, the rest are too stupid to butter toast, let alone procreate or vote for that matter.

Too many people in this state vote for a living; that's the biggest problem we face here in MA or in most, if not all “blue” states.

MA does have a lot to offer and you're right, it's “true blue” to a fault. Can it be “shaken up”? IMHO, no, because the sane folks are way outnumbered.

I agree. I’m not in love with Scott Brown’s performance and I’m sure he is vulnerable in a primary but there is absolutely no Republican in the state who could beat a motivated Democrat. I wish the 100 percenters could understand this state

Scott Brown: Where do I begin...?

I campaigned for him, donated to him, was thrilled when he won (I predicted here on FR he'd win by 5%), as did a number of people here on FR.

Then Scotty came down with DC Fever.

I suspected he went native when the Tea Party Express, with keynote speaker Sarah Palin came to Boston last year and Scotty was TOOOOOOO busy to appear or even record a 10 second “Thank you all for your support and welcome!” blurb. Hmmm...this is the same man that drags his entire family to every museum dedication, restaurant opening and sporting event he possibly can.

Then he came out with that interview where he pretended he didn't know who or what the Tea Party is.

Then he voted for the Frank/Dodd Banking Bill, the repeal of DADT and for the new START treaty. He votes differently from how Coakley would how? Those are some far ranging and damaging votes. I don't expect any Republican from MA to vote like a Republican from say, SC or TX, but dammit, those votes are unforgivable.

A dear friend of mine, a disabled Korean War vet, contacted Brown's office several times regarding some questions/concerns he had about the VA and his benefits. This man also campaigned for and donated to Brown, and didn't even get a call back. Say what you want about Teddy K. (and my nasty anti-Kennedy comments are all over FR) his office would have returned a phone call or email and assisted.

He's up for reelection next year. Fine. I (and pretty much everyone I know and many people here on FR) will do nothing to help him. If he wins whatever; if he loses whatever.

He's nothing to me.
