GOProud's Chris Barron Calls Bachmann's Views on His Sexuality a 'Side Show': VIDEO


CNN's Ali Velshi doesn't get why Chris Barron of gay conservative group GOProud says he won't question Michele Bachmann about her "ex-gay" clinic at the group's planned meeting with her.

Demands Velshi: "You're not running for President. Why are you dodging questions?"

  1. I don't understand why they exist as an organization if they say their personal lives, (i.e. sexuality, partners, husbands, wives etc.) are side-shows and not important. I would say they highlight their sexuality MORE by stating that it isn't a deciding factor in who they help to elect.

    The supposed "gay left" doesn't berate everyone who doesn't agree with them on marriage equality. What most gay organizations actually do is point out the truly bigoted politicians and public figures whose statements and views demonize gay people as a whole and take them to task.

    I don't think every gay person is a loyal Dem OR GOP supporter- I think a lot of us are independents with varying issues that are just as important as our civil rights are.

    I don't understand why he just doesn't come out and support any of the more moderate candidates, like Johnson, Huntsmen, or Romney.

    I hope Bachmann spews some more of her ignorant bile in their lil meeting....

  2. This is the organization that has like four people right? Why, again, does anyone listen to them? There is absolutely no point for this organization to exist. They don't support gay rights and only focus on fiscal issues. There's no reason for them to even bring their sexuality into it if that's all they're going for.

  4. Someone on You Tube and Joe My God wrote:

    Barron.. no matter how many times you vote republican and bash "gay liberals" daddy will still be dissapointed that you're a fag.

  5. Again, GOProud is NOT a gay organization. The majority of its ten members are straight people, who seek to cover their bigotry using slimeballs like Barron.

    Why does rich, white-boy, self-hating Barron get any screentime? Yes, he's entertaining---and an embarrassment to mankind...

  6. barron didn't answer one question. he was more evasive than bachmannn. what a very dull relationship he must be in if all he and his partner discuss at night are taxes and spending. his partner has to be as dull as he is. they seem only to worry about their pocketbook but the issues of civil rights. these are the type who volunteer to build the camps when the conservatives win and be shocked when the get locked up with everyone else.

  7. This is a perfect example of the difference between Democrats and Republicans. Democrats care more about people and less about big business and Republicans care more about big business than people.

    Very sad.

  8. It's sad that Barron doesn't think gay marriage and civil rights doesn't impact him and his partner fiscally. And he's a fool if he thinks his group is going to get any support from Bachmann and folks like her. She'll take his vote and throw his rights right under the bus. What a waste!

  11. Wow...his self-hate is infesting all over his face. He and his partner never talk about hate crime! I know it's bad, but i soooo hope to hear someday soon he will be attacked by homophobes so that he and his partner know something about hate crime.

  12. I love the indignant face he gets EVERY SINGLE TIME someone asks him a question.

    "How dumb are you to be asking me such a *stupid* question?"

    ... Even though the entire world is asking that question right now. Oh well, I guess it's hard staying classying with the libtards, right, Chris?

    What an ass. Go tweet another photo of your abs, you pompous jerk.

  16. Ali starts the interview calling GOProud "a group that supports gay rights" but... is that actually part of their mission? I don't mean that as a joke; it actually doesn't sound like gay rights are part of their charter.

  18. What a pathetic excuse for a human being he is. I would actually feel sorry for him, if I wasn't so mad at him.

    Fool/Tool indeed.

    I fear for America's future. Truly. Why are all these morons running the show...?

  19. What exactly is a gay conservative, or a gay republican? How can one be so self loathing?
