    The moment a gay man someone that they are a conservative because they believe in free market, then I know he is one of those gay men who makes very good money, and is more concerned with his money than he is the civil rights of the gay community.

    He is able to throw his lot in with the republican party, who, whatever delusions he may foster on that point, despises him because he cares more about his personal money than securing the rights and bettering the lives of other gay men and women.

    And every gay republican I have ever met despised gay people, and opposed their rights to express themselves as they deemed fit.

    So when someone like the self-serving Christopher Barron says he opposes the governments infringing upon the lives of American individuals, he would oppose gays who are flamboyant, would legislate, if he could, laws the would prohibit gay pride parades.

    Republicans talk about the overbearing role government plays in the lives of its citizens, yet they do more to impose their values and morals and lies upon the rest of us than any other political party, and that is the part this idiot belongs to.

    He is more comfortable with republicans because he hates gay people, he hates poor people, and the middle class.

    A gay republican makes about as much sense as a black repubican . . . which is to say, no sense at all.

    Scratch a gay or black republican and what you will find just another self-serving bigot. I have never met a gay republican who was not as big a bigot, and as hateful towards other gays (who did not walk around pretending to be straight) than their heterosexual counterparts.

    In short I have never met a gay republican who was not morally bankrupt and a thoroughly despicable person.

    ricco the problem though is that the policies of repubs only benefit the top 2%

    the majority of conservative /repub gays though might have $/well off…..the top 2% is wealth

    very few gays are top 2% wealthy…..that is money that someone just on the interest on their wealth is considered rich (just on the interest)

    99.999% of R gays are racist plain and simple and that is why they are repubs

  4. JJ says

    The fact that it’s easier to be gay among conservatives than conservative among gays doesn’t mean conservatives are welcoming. It just means they despise you less vehemently than those who regard you as a traitor.

  5. peterparker says

    I believe him when he says “I have an easier time being openly gay with conservatives than I do being a conservative with gay people.” After all, most of us don’t like kapos.

  6. mstrozfckslv@yahoo.com says

    I want to stress the point I made

    U can have a multi million dollar home and pull in a multi million dollar income

    You are NOT wealthy! in top 2% that benefit from repub policies

    If you pull in millions on interest alone on investments and do that while sitting on your ass 24/7 = you are wealthy and benefit from repubs. Think multi generational wealthy families living on trust funds = that is not you gay repubs

  7. BobN says

    I guess I missed the part where the gay community passed laws rendering Republican relationships invisible before the law…

  8. GregV says

    “The fact that it’s easier to be gay among conservatives than conservative among gays…”
    Hold on, I wouldn’t call that a “fact,” to say the least.
    There are no political campaigns among gays to take basic civil rights away from conservatives; no reports of murders by gay thugs of innocent victims suspected of being conservative as they walked down the street minding their own business. Gay-majority areas have never debated a “kill the conservatives” bill. Gay majority churches don’t raise millions of dollars to create propaganda campaigns to try to stop conservatives from having their marriages recognized or from being allowed to work in jobs such as the military.
    Having friends and acquaintances question one’s opinions in no way compares to the kind of discrimination gays have to endure. Conservatives who try to say it’s somehow the same thing just haven’t thought it through.

    I swear i’ll never understand a gay republican. It just doesn’t make sense. Its like being a black klans memember

  10. says

    “The moment a gay man someone that they are a conservative because they believe in free market, then I know he is one of those gay men who makes very good money, and is more concerned with his money than he is the civil rights of the gay community.”

    You have no understanding of what the free market is… it is where people make THEIR OWN choices of how, when, where to buy goods and services and for how much. Our community (at pride events) is DRIVEN by the free market and gays are a HUGE consuming sector.

    “And every gay republican I have ever met despised gay people, and opposed their rights to express themselves as they deemed fit.”

    Please tell us which ones, and the way I see it gay liberals are the ones who have opposed marriage, adoption, and even gays like Elton John having their own children. YOU LIBERALS have been against gay people as well.

    “Republicans talk about the overbearing role government plays in the lives of its citizens, yet they do more to impose their values and morals and lies upon the rest of us”

    And you’re telling us that the democrats DO NOT? And why do you care about big government anyway? You liberals/Marxists WANT more intrusive big nanny/big brother style government.

    “He is more comfortable with republicans because he hates gay people, he hates poor people, and the middle class.”

    Again, how is that so? Liberals have done more damage to the middle class than ever before. The middle class is shrinking because you want to destroy the free market in which it flourishes. YOU said it yourself. YOU are the one that has destroyed the middle class and have made people poor.

    “In short I have never met a gay republican who was not morally bankrupt and a thoroughly despicable person.”

    Neither have I met a gay HIV infested liberal Che revolutionary who wasn’t.

  11. says

    “Chris B., Sarah P. and the like are DELUSIONAL”

    Agreed.

    What about all the gays who told us that the Obama was going to pass ENDA, repeal DOMA and all that..?

    And the ones that said that California will never pass prop 8 because it is a blue state?

    And the ones that said that Maine will pass gay marriage because it is also a blue state?

    And on, and on, and on…

    LOL. One can only point to the preceding comment by “Crazy-as-hell”:

    “delusional -adj.

    LOL. I knew that definition was going to come in handy on this board, filled with delusional anti-capitalists who want to impoverish the nation.

    So you libs a ARE admitting that you are hateful? In fact this is not about our rights anymore, but about being MORE hateful to other gays who are not liberals?

    Okay. At least you are being honest.

  14. walter says

    goproud members must be smoking some good stuff to actually think that conservatives like them. conservatives would like nothing more the eradication of all gays. to feel the need to support the repuks you must really hate yourself. the repuks really don;t much to do with any minority be it black, hispanic or
    gay. the only rights they will defend are the rich and those they will defend with everybody else blood.

  16. says

    “goproud members must be smoking some good stuff to actually think that conservatives like them.”

    Yes and no, maybe. But at the very least why even bring up pot smoking as a smearing device? I thought you libs were all “tolerant” of pot smokers.

    My feeling about GOProud is the same as Stonewall democrats, just another front group of partisan shills, only difference is that GOProud seems to enjoy provoking the left a lot. LOL. And you stupid liberals take the bait.

  17. Jay says

    This guy has his head planted firmly where the sun never shines & I don’t mean Portland. I lived briefly in Wash. D.C. and left for fear that all the guys in D.C. like him would somehow be startled into pulling their head out of their asses at the same time. The resulting explosion would flatten the District and several adjoining counties in Virginia and Maryland and Delaware.

  18. says

    “Pepa, please do us all a favor and take your meds”

    Why don’t you do YOURSELF a favor and actually come up with an original thought.

    As in using your brain cells appropriately.

    Because all you libs have done so far is shown your hate while lacking substance.

  19. Jay says

    Note to Pepa who complained that she feels betrayed because Obama has not passed ENDA and repealed DOMA as she was told.

    1. Prognostication is not an exact science.

    2. Congress has to do these things. WAKE UP.
    Obama did NOT end DADT, Congress did. But
    Obama worked hard to convince Congress to
    do the right thing and he gladly signed
    the bill Congress sent him.

  20. Jason (the commenter) says

    Reading this blog over the past few months, I’ve seen Chris attacked at least as much by liberals as by conservatives.

    I could say more looking at the comments on this post! Liberals HATE gay conservatives.

    So please come up with a better argument for voting Democrat than, “the Republicans hate you”, because for gay conservatives the Democrats do as well!

  21. Rowan says

    Good! He’s a kapo. Stick with the Conservatives Barron you sociopathic and self centred creep.

    We’ve just had this guy Andrew Price in the UK insult Elron John. Vince, Jason and Pepa, why don’t you all start a right wing facist group with Barron, Coulter and Price?

    Poor you! You are the minorities as right wingers because you believe in no such thing as society but only in money!

    Obama is the anti-Christ and Bush did nothing wring, those damn n-gags deserved what happens to them in new orleans n’est pas kapo’s?

  22. Zach says

    “So please come up with a better argument for voting Democrat than, “the Republicans hate you”, because for gay conservatives the Democrats do as well!”

    Liberal gays despise Republican gays who support a party whose majority would gladly see us thrown in prison. Liberal gays despise Republican gays for supporting a party that has never once made any major civil rights initiative for us. The Democrats are, collectively, spineless and opportunistic. But it’s been a while since a major party figure called us deviants, or a state platform explicitly included criminalizing homosexuality. Democrats don’t have politicians wishing to kill gay people, or isolate them from the general populace. As long as Republicans do, Republican gays are morally bankrupt; I will not tolerate anyone who willingly subverts their rights for their personal economic gain.

    But this is really just punching a brick wall – you can’t make people so obsessed with their (usually moderate) economic situation that they ignore everything else suddenly care. Certain personalities are just too warped by their own selfishness.

  23. Houndentenor says

    I find it odd that every one of these gay Republicans that either blog or show up on tv live in deep blue country like West Hollywood, NYC or somewhere similar. I wonder if they would agree that conservatives are okay with gay people if they lived in Alabama or rural Texas. I just got back from the Gulf Coast and realize that the racism and homophobia is very bad and very out in the open. If you think these Tea Party types say horrible things you should hear what they say in front of a white man they assume will agree with them.

  24. Tony X says

    Gay Republicans are just selfish elitists – Just like straight Republicans – of course he is more comfortable around “conservatives” they are assholes just like him …. sorry GOP GAYS the liberal progressive movement set you free … you owe us and we do not like your ungrateful spits in the face

    Log Cabin ENDORSED John McCain for President
    GOProud invites Ann Coulter to speak and insult them.

    Gay Republicans have a right to be gay, a right to be Republican – but not a right to be respected. They rightfully are and should be scorned for how they treat the progressive movement.

  25. Vince in WeHo says

    Rowan: “Vince … why don’t you all start a right wing facist group with Barron … You are the minorities as right wingers because you believe in no such thing as society but only in money! … Obama is the anti-Christ and Bush did nothing wring, those damn n-gags deserved what happens to them in new orleans n’est pas kapo’s?”

    1) You made an assumption based no my observation of incivility on this thread. I’m nowhere near the right. I’m actually left-center.

    2) I only think about money? Huh? You get that again from an observation about incivility.

    3) Obama the anti-christ? Huh? Again, you extracted that from an observation of incivility. I voted for Obama and I’ll probably vote for him again in 2012

    *removes Rowen’s foot from Rowen’s mouth*

    I’ll restate what I already said: No wonder Barron feels comfortable with conservatives, judging from the comments on here. I don’t support the backwards social thinking of Evangelicals and the lot. And I don’t support the nastiness that the left spews at them. Hate begets hate begets hates.

    I stand with Jesus.

    And, by the way, I actually personally know two Tea Party members who aren’t related to me and they both support gay marriage, as well as the DADT repeal. If I acted and said the things that a lot of people on here say, they’d probably change their minds.

    Dude, every gay is a spokesperson for our progress, whether we like it or not. Set an example why don’t you? What makes you all so superior? Because you’re on the right side of history? Congratulations. Now act your age, not your shoe size.

    *kiss*

  26. brenda says

    Wow.

    I’m so glad I’m neither a Democrat or a Republican.

    The system on both side is fucked.

    After all, DADT and DOMA came to be under Democratic presidents.

    After all, it is Republicans who vote consistently against gay issues and voice brutal hate for LGBT Americans.

    Being an Independent suits me.

  27. Shaun says

    @Houndentenor:

    I totally agree. I find it interesting that a lot of gay conservatives choose to live in liberal, trendy neighborhoods like West Hollywood in L.A., Georgetown in DC, or Manhattan in NYC. Wouldn’t gay conservatives feel more comfortable in suburban or rural Red State America? Then they can see what their Republican friends REALLY think about gay men.

    Gay conservatives talk the talk, but they don’t always walk the walk.

    I know one politically vocal gay Republican who talks about economic freedom and the virtues of the free market, but he chooses to live in a rent-controlled apartment in West Hollywood.

    And I know another gay Republican who criticizes “wasteful government spending” and any stimulus program supported by Obama or the Democrats, but he made sure that he took advantage of the “Cash for Clunkers” program last year.

  28. says

    @Brenda: DADT was actually an improvement over the previous policy, when the JAG actively sought to find and remove homosexuals serving in the ranks.
    And DOMA was a Republican law (both the Senate and the House were in GOP control at that point in time).

  29. ravewulf says

    If it weren’t for the CONSTANT Republican filibusters of nearly EVERY single piece of legislation in Congress, the Democrats could have gotten all our legislation (and a lot more beyond that) passed ON THEIR OWN without a SINGLE Republican’s help

  30. says

    This is what Christoper Barron is soooo proud of (via Twitter)

    October 17: Is Tom Brady transitioning to living as a woman? If not please explain the hair.

    December 11: Apparently fat pathetic self-important Andrew Sullivan doesn’t like GOProud. I’m crushed.

    Also, he’s not insulted by Ann Coulter because she raised his group some $$

    December 9: Ann didnt insult me and we raised a ton of money off that event

    Sooooo in Barron’s “proud” mind you better have cash, not be fat or transexual.

  31. PeteP says

    It’s true. Conservatives really are accepting of gays. I can’t wait for Mr. Barron to get his friends at CPAC to support the repeal of DOMA and the legalization of same sex marriage. Good times are ahead. Thank God that we have him to remind us how much conservatives love us and want to make our lives better.

    However, in the unlikely event that he leaves CPAC with nothing more than a bunch of tasteless conservative swag, do you think that he will admit defeat and go into hiding. It would be the honorable thing to do.

  32. Jason (the commenter) says

    “Democrats don’t have politicians wishing to kill gay people, or isolate them from the general populace. As long as Republicans do, Republican gays are morally bankrupt…”

    Please, one of the favorite television shows of Republicans is Modern Family. Yes, there are still Republicans with negative views of gays, but as far as hate goes, actual hate, gay conservatives get much more of that from liberals. And being hated for your ideas is not better than being hated for your identity.

    Liberals are literally a hate group as far as gay conservatives are concerned.

  33. Jason (the commenter) says

    “But this is really just punching a brick wall – you can’t make people so obsessed with their (usually moderate) economic situation that they ignore everything else suddenly care. Certain personalities are just too warped by their own selfishness.”

    Economic conditions apply to everyone in the entire country. You ask gay conservatives to ignore those conditions and instead focus on the well being of a tiny group they belong to, and then call them selfish!

  34. Rovex says

    It all comes down to whats more important, self respect or money.

    You cant escape the fact that there are conservative gays, although it doesnt mean they are conservative in all things. However to actually vote or even campaign for the republicans is very much a step too far. You ARE voting yourself into continued second class citizenship, whether you feel it or not.

  35. Jason (the commenter) says

    “We are entitled to hate you back when you treat us as less than equals. That may not be hate in your mind, but it is in mine.”

    That’s not even hate according to Webster’s.

    And who is the “you” in the comment? Gay conservatives! Hate gay conservatives, feel free, but if you do, don’t tell them to distance themselves from groups that hate them, because you just sound ridiculous.

  36. Jim in St Louis says

    Too Funny! – I wish there was a decent third party in this country that would combine fiscal responsibility with a respect for constitutional restraint.

  37. Jonathan says

    Jason and PEPA should hook up. Both seem to have the impression the road to nirvana is paved with conservatives. Good luck with that.

    PEPA – you are possibly the most ignorant poster on this comment thread. You don’t even know what a Marxist is.
    Hint – Eisenhower, by your definition, must have been a card-carrying member of the communist party.

    I’ve heard parrots that made more sense than you do.

  38. mike/ says

    this is the 1st time i think i’ve seen him not higher than god and able to stay on topic instead of jumping all over the place, though i can’t agree with anything he says…

  39. Rowan says

    Jason you’re crazy. Continue living in your own world where the right are your friends and the left are the enemy. You guys are seriously deluded and well, mad.

  40. justiceontherocks says

    When asked why he aligns himself with Republicans he doesn’t answer the question, just talks about conservatives. I think his brain must have been damaged in the same misfortune that got his nose.

    But since this guy represents himself and maybe two other people, why do the gay blogs feed into his ego trip, which is all this is?

  41. says

    This guy Chris on some level is all of the following. Self-loathing, masochistic, greedy, selfish and in denial. And I’m sure I’ve missed a few. How else do you explain his defending the indefensible. He hides behind his conservative values as his only motivation. Well I’m conservative in many of my beliefs too, but I would never align myself with people who openly hate me and would wish me harm at best and at worst, death. Makes no sense to me.

  42. ggreen says

    Once a rich gay conservative is gay bashed they change tunes immediately. They inhabit a world where bigotry is bought off with money and status. But once a few teeth are knocked out or their homes are vandalized, big government is what they scream for.

  43. PeteP says

    Great point about gay conservatives living in cities like L.A., S.F. or N.Y. The same is true for most of the conservative pundits, T.V. hosts, etc. Every Fox News anchor lives in New York or a nearby suburb. Perhaps they should move their headquarters to Mississippi or Alabama and take advantage of some of the wonderful (and extremely free market) incentives that these states are using to lure businesses from other states. This would put them closer to the people and place them in a state where the tax burden is lower. I can’t wait to see that happen.

  44. Tranquilo says

    Wow. Pepa is really selling me on his argument. I especially like when he uses HIV status as a perforative.

  45. wslandry says

    @Rodney Wollam said it just perfect. I’m surrounded by family and work associates who are Republicans that feel the same way you feel. It’s all about not effecting there status or money. Old money gay and hate themselves behind closed doors but will never admit it. Xmas Eve dinner was just a hate feast will loving fake smiles.

  46. says

    “PEPA – you are possibly the most ignorant poster on this comment thread. You don’t even know what a Marxist is.”

    There has been open Marxists on this site who have expressed the views that I point out… so no. Marxists hate gay people, they use gay people as patsies to spread their ideological perversion.

    This is BEYOND republican vs. democrat, only SIMPLETONS like so many of you will fall for this fraudulent paradigm of a two party system. BOTH parties use gay issues to GET VOTES and stay in power.

    How that is so hard to understand is the reason why so many of you are PERSISTENT with the name-calling and stupid babel. This is the reason why our community is GOING NO WHERE on our rights. Period. Too many of you are PARTISAN shills. You are no worse than GOProud.

    Party first, gay people last.

  47. says

    “two words; and they’re the same two words that apply to all republicans: selfish and greedy.”

    And the gay liberal that persists on having multiple sex partners and have as much sex as he wants at the expense of other people’s health is by no means selfish or greedy?

    Pot meet kettle.

  48. says

    The hatred for being a successful gay person is really funny…

    These people obviously either live on welfare or they are themselves so damn ironically greedy that they get envious when a gay person makes good money, hires people, and contributes to the community.

    What a shame. The Marxists are in full throttle.

    They care more about bashing gay people who are successful than securing any of the supposed rights at all. And this is the biggest irony of all.

  49. says

    “Pepa must be the other member of GOProud.”

    YOU obviously do not know how to read.

    Please re-read my comment on GOProud before making asinine statements that only fuel the obvious conclusion of your foaming hatred that inhibits you from making sound comments based on facts.

  50. says

    “Wow. Pepa is really selling me on his argument. I especially like when he uses HIV status as a perforative.”

    Gay liberals LOVE HIV. They even forced the country to admit foreigners with HIV so they can infect everybody.

    They also love infecting themselves and others so the government can pay for their misery.

    Some of the gay liberals even call HIV the “gift.” Haven’t you heard of the “gift?”

  51. SCVMalcolm says

    Poor Chrissie! He doesn’t seem to realize that he had no choice to be gay, but he does have a choice to be a stupid lying Bimbo. No wonder mainstream gays don’t like him!
