GOP leadership opens door to homosexual rep
OneNewsNow.com ^ | 6/30/11 | Fred Jackson

Posted on 07/01/2011 2:28:17 PM PDT by Antoninus

Homosexual Republicans are celebrating what they see as a major victory for their cause. According to the Log Cabin Republicans, the Republican National Committee -- which is the central arm of the Republican Party -- has named the homosexual group's executive director to the RNC's Finance Committee. That committee is the fundraising arm of the RNC.

The Log Cabin group says R. Clarke Cooper will play a "critical" role in raising funds for the party's efforts to elect Republicans to the White House and across the country. Cooper says he will be working to elect what he calls "pro-equality Republicans."

Bob Kabel, a former national chairman of the Log Cabin Republicans who now chairs the District of Columbia Republican Committee, lauds Cooper's new role and references the GOP's "winning strategy for 2012, one based upon inclusion and the conviction that with a big tent the GOP can recapture the White House." Social conservatives who normally support the GOP have often expressed concern about the homosexual group gaining greater influence in the party.

The problem with the log cabin republicans is the fact that they put their homosexuality first and foremost.

I see nothing wrong with this. If he can bring in the gay vote, that’s fine with me. We will need every vote we can get if we are to beat obammy.

Just more evidence that there is no national party that advocates for social conservatives. We are +30% of the electorate without a voice.

Did you see this part, genius?

Cooper says he will be working to elect what he calls "pro-equality Republicans."

What's the point of electing a Republican if what you're getting is the same as a Democrat?

Exactly. Next we can go after the welfare vote, the chronic unemployment vote, the criminal vote, and then we can be DEMOCRATS!

I echo the first post ... at what point do we just walk out. I KNOW the argument against a third party and it is a strong one. However, let’s face it. The GOP is never, ever, ever, ever going to be conservative. It is not going to change. For decades we’ve been asking for change and they act like they are going to do something and they do nothing. What did we get out of the Bush years? NOTHING.

I wish Sarah or someone who we respect would lead the way and start a Third Party. We keep this up, and the conservative movement will die. Because you know as well as I do what is going to happen - they are going to push Romney (and get him) as the nominee. He will pick some running mate who will tow the Romney line. And win or lose in Nov 2012 NOTHING will change. We’ll be here, complaining about it all yet again saying, “we need a Third Party.

We HAVE to start somewhere ... and sooner than later. The time is now.

The term "Homosexual Republicans" is used in the article. There likely are such things. (And I'll give credit for using "Homosexual" instead of the perfectly fine term "gay" which has been corrupted of from its original meaning).

But there is no such thing as a:

HOMOSEXUAL CONSERVATIVE!

Conservatives are pro-God, pro-family and anti-sodomy. Sodomites will not find any welcome among true Conservatives. A Sodomite can repent and with God's help become a normal human being. Until and unless that happens, such an individual is an abomination to God and to to Conservatives. Period.

Welcome aboard. You’ll find you’ve come home.

The GOP has now come out of the closet. It is a full-blown arm of the demrat party. If there is any conservative who doubts that now you’re to naive or stupid to be a conservative. True conservatives have a brain they still use.

We lost in 2006 on account of half a dozen homosexuals elected to the House, or Senate, or working there.

The American voting public tolerates Democrat homosexuals but they don't tolerate Republican homosexuals.

I warned you that if you let the old money "establishment" stick this Preibus guy in charge of the RNC you'd see the gays coming back at the top.

Well, there they are ~ END OF STORY.

That’s sure going to get a lot of money from conservatives- not.

The thing is that homosexual “conservatives” are so few as to be virtually non existent. Its an utter waste of time and resources to pick up that few thousand total votes when you’ll lose millions of conservatives.

So, the Republican Party appoints a homosexual activist to raise money for the party. And just what kind of candidates are going to recieve this money? Social conservatives? Obviously not. Why do they want to lose? Are they suicidal? They're kicking millions of social conservatives to the curb. What next, people? Where do we go from here? Ideas?

I'm pretty sure the RINOs are trying to force a third-party exodus to throw elections to the Dems, for which RINOs will, as always, blame conservatives while they laugh it up with their real friends.

If you’re not threatened by the homosexual agenda, you must be in favor of it.

The homosexual agenda is busily destroying our freedoms of religion, speech and association, as well as the military, and the natural family, and childrens’ innocence.

This means nothing to you?

if the homosexual crowd wants to give us money, fine. if they want to vote for us, fine. The AMERICAN PEOPLE do not tolerate homosexuals in leadership positions in the Republican party nor do they tolerate homosexuals elected as Republicans.

We lost 2006 because of a half dozen people.

NO MORE 2006 EVENTS.

Isn’t the overall deal that the tea party kills all the RINOs in the primary. It was great fun to kill off Mike Castle in Delaware. That’s what the tea party does. The RINO establishment destroys the party and the tea party voters destroy the bad Republicans.

Hey all the candidates say they are conservative, there is no standard. I have been here since 98 and vote for the candidate who is most conservative [my standard pro-life and pro-jobs] even if that means 3rd party. I have voted for Buchanan. I have never voted for a Democrat. I don't waste my vote on lesser of evils. I want my vote counted even if I lose.

Sweeping all opposition before it the coalition continues to roll on to final victory. Soon the Republican party will be composed solely of left wing blacks, homosexuals, illegal aliens, asians and for flavoring a sprinkling of convicted felons.

Before you walk on the country, walk on the Whigs....I mean the GOP.

I have voted every opportunity for almost forty years. Sometimes my issue won, most times it didn't. But when my issue was victorious, it was overthrown by some F.A. puke in a black robe.

I've seen my neighborhood where we've lived for the last 30 years slowly turn into a a cruising ground for thugs and taggers.

I've been beat down by the media and their partners the left, public sector unions and higher 'education'.

The concept of shame, of doing the right thing is almost gone.

I am 'demanded' to show respect to every person regardless of their perversion or anti-social thought. (poopy! this is a good beginning of an opus!)

It saddens me is that beyond these walls not too many people in this country care what happens as long as they can afford the payments for the latest gizmo or who wins on America's most whatever.

So that's why I'm thinking of getting out while I'm still not too old and while TSA still doesn't require exit visas.

I'll celebrate Independence day but for me sadly not in a traditional way. My independence from a society who just don't care.

It'd be nice if we could destroy all the RINOs, but like the poor, no doubt the craven and venal will always be with us, and will never fail to be pompous asshats about it.

I don't find it particularly fun to commit electoral RINOcide anymore than it's fun to kill mice or roaches when I find 'em in my house. Not fun, just necessary.

Conservatives are pro-God, pro-family and anti-sodomy.

If someone calls himself a conservative and believes in our Constitution and fiscal conservatism, I don't care if he believes in G-d or who he has sex with.

If you throw out all the gay conservatives, then you need to throw out all the conservatives who commit adultery, shack up before marriage, look at porn, eat too much, whip their kids with belts, spoil their kids, don't want kids, have problems with drugs or alcohol, are "fighting with G-d" (because isn't that what atheists are doing, since there IS a G-d), or have other flaws.

Anyone who believes like we do and is not perfect is only going to help us! Because none of us are perfect! Welcome to all who believe in FREEDOM and our founding documents.

As have most of us here.

"I've been beat down by the media and their partners the left, public sector unions and higher 'education'."

"The concept of shame, of doing the right thing is almost gone."

Ah ha!!! You said it yourself.......ALMOST. We have NOT lost yet. Heck, I'd rather go down fighting than walk away.

We are ALL in your same shoes. "Don't retreat, just reload". Can't remember who said that, it's on the tip of my tongue.....

"I am 'demanded' to show respect to every person regardless of their perversion or anti-social thought."

You are "demanded" no such thing. The only demand is to step in their face and say eff you. They don't like it very much, but it seems to cower them from my face.

"It saddens me is that beyond these walls not too many people in this country care what happens as long as they can afford the payments for the latest gizmo or who wins on America's most whatever."

That was then....this is now. They can no longer afford such things. They're too busy trying to keep up with their mortgage and credit card bills, which is why spending has come to a screeching halt.

"I'll celebrate Independence day but for me sadly not in a traditional way. My independence from a society who just don't care."

YOU celebrate the way you always have. If not, you allow them to defeat you. There are millions upon millions of us who feel exactly the same way you do. We're just not all "in your face vulgar" about it......yet.

Hang in there, at least until 2012. I think He may give us a 2nd chance and I'm sure you'd hate to miss out on that!
