Joy Behar Does Not Understand GOProud

BeharvoteDiscussing Ann Coulter with The Advocate's Matthew Breen, The View host Joy Behar veered the conversation toward GOProud, the conservative gay group that backs Mitt Romney.

She's find GOProud utterly confusing, she says, because they've endorsed a candidate who doesn't support them.

Here's an excerpt:

MB: Some of the things [Ann Coulter has] said at Homocon and other GOProud events seem tone-deaf.

JC: Aren’t the GOProud guys the ones that are voting for Romney? Why would she be against them?

MB: She said if the GOP picked Romney, they’d lose.

JC: Let’s hope she’s right. I don’t understand the GOProud people either. Why are they voting for someone who’s against gay marriage, gays in the military? The Republican platform wants to roll back into “don’t ask, don’t tell.” I mean, that is completely retro. It’s not all about your pocketbook, guys. I guess they feel their money will protect them from homophobia. A lot of people felt that way, in like Germany, for example.

In response, GOProud executive director Jimmy LaSalvia tweeted at Behar that he wants to come onto The View to explain his group's position.

  1. Love the line about Germany.

    And, please, do not let LaSalvia on The View. It's bad enough GOProud gets the sort of attention it does.

  2. I think we've had enough explanations from GOProud.
    They can now phuck off and just be the traitors they have always been.

  3. LaSalvia, a pathetic racist who himself made up a story about being "attacked by black youths" whom he scared off by "pretending to reach for a gun" (massive eye-roll) has no credibility.

    all his angry anti-liberals tweets in the last week about that OTHER GOProud-sanctioned utterly made-up hate crime attack, and not honest condemnations of Kyle Wood who made the damn thing up.

    his group's position is simple - it's a support network for white boys who resent being homosexual as much as their own families and political affiliates do. they exist to slander liberals and invent anti-liberal stories, while doing NO WORK AT ALL to advance LGBT Equality. No building bridges. They're the ones who create distances between Gay and Conservative because that distance is their only way to save their own @sses.

    sad sad sad.

  4. It's ok Joy, the rest of us gays don't understand them either...

  5. ugh.. dear ladies of the view. do not give that turd air time. if you do, research his history THOROUGHLY, something you don't often do. he has lied repeatedly and continues to lie to date.

    you can be gay and conservative, but it doesn't require toadying to do so. even mehlman, once he came out backed away from the party's bigots and tools.

  6. the be gay and conservative you simply have to neuter yourself and forsake your dignity. it's that simple.

  7. So tired of GOproud. Their tagline should be "Our money is more important than your civil rights."

    I am all for economic conservatism, but I'm not going to vote for a candidate who is gung ho for discrimination and marginalization. Those GOproud people should be ashamed.

  8. GoProud is to gay as Ann Coulter is to civil discourse.

    They deserve one another and both are lonely islands.

  9. Maybe if they try hard enough, one of the good ol' boys will let them give him head.

  10. Actually it would be kind of fun to watch Whoopi and Joy dismantle LaSilva.

  11. curious - has ANYONE been able to find retractions from Barron, LaSalvia, B. Daniel Blatt (gaypatriot.net) or other "gay conservative" faces in regard to the fabricated Gay Liberal Attacks Gay Republican falsehood from last week?

    ANY retractions? ANY condemnations of his lies?

    i can't find 'em.

  12. In the transcript, who is "JC"? Breen and Behar are "B"'s.

  13. Does anyone else wonder about the authenticity of this group?

    Posted by: Lucas H | Nov 2, 2012 4:09:03 PM

  14. Joy wouldn't understand GOProud type gays. The gay folk she associates with aren't damaged like so many of the gay conservatives are.

  15. Too bad that Little Kiwi was exposed as an ignorant liar who is incapable of doing even basic research here.

  16. Joy cannot understand the idiot GRUBS (Gay Republicans) because she is intelligent. No one intelligent can understand the gay idiots who support the Republicans. We would have to have our brains removed to understand them on their level.

  17. "ANY retractions? ANY condemnations of his lies? i can't find 'em."

    There were AT LEAST THREE, LK. You must not be trying too hard.

  18. I wonder if Joy would support the abortion of babies with a gay gene should such a gene exist. Most liberal women do.

  19. "I guess they feel their money will protect them from homophobia. A lot of people felt that way, in like Germany, for example."


    this is true though- many thought they were the "right" kind of german jews but everyone ended up in the camps...

    Joy, we don't get it either. I think being queer and being oldschool conservative is very compatible- that is if you are talking about going back to libertarian roots. There is nothing small government about using the government to dictate what is and isn't acceptable social behavior or amending the constitution to tell individuals and states how they are going to manage marriage.

    I hope and pray for more fragmenting of current Republicans on this issue with the end result being expulsion of the "religious right"/american taliban from the Republican party so we can go back to civil discourse

  20. Joyless Brayhard does not understand words with more than two syllables. What a bint.

  21. The GOP gays are not real gays they are fake gay Christians who pretend to be gay so the GOP can get votes from LGBT people who have not figured out that the "GAY GOP" is a scam and a fraud and a trick to get them to voting for the Republicans.

  22. This assumes the Republican economic positions are the right one, considering the last 30 years of implementing them I can say GOProuds economic ideas are bad for LGBT individuals and the country. I don't know why we let them get away with "it's all about money" Yeah things are great for the richest of them, but not all of us are millionaires and do we fool ourselves into tax cuts we might need if we do become millionaires. Side Supply has been disproven, we need to go back to what works. GOProud doesn't have any idea what works and will throw our rights under the bus to push the idea they somehow know better than us about economic issues.

  23. The troll is at it again. Please ignore him and his "what if" comments.

  24. We know your position, Jimmy. Bottom.
