CPAC Still Won't Let GOProud Play With The Right Wing Big Boys

Lasalviatweet

Should the gay conservative group GOProud stop trying to attend the Conservative Political Action Conference, or does their continued rejection from the annual right wing event, and executive director Jimmy LaSalvia's promotion of this rejection, help their cause?

Or do these dust-ups end up hurting their cause, serving as yet another reminder to voters that the Republican base still rejects LGBT people as a whole, even their fellow conservatives?

  1. Gotta hand it to GOProud - they consistently bring self-loathing to new and unprecedented heights.

  3. It's probably for the best - GOProud has a documented presence of slandering and denigrating "other gays" at CPAC events.

    it aint no loss.

    remember this?

  6. As Roy Cohn said in Angels in America. Not because you are gay. It is because you have no clout. Ken Mehlman would be welcome in the big tent.

  8. Boo Hoo. What do they expect? The GOP hates the gays. GOProud is noting but a bunch of foolish Uncle Tom's. PATHETIC.

  10. Can we go with none of the above?

    Their continual banging their heads against the wall of GOP homophobia does in fact point out the view of the GOP and highlights them to anyone with eyes to see - it prevents the GOP from getting away with any variation of "We're not exclusionary, no gay people asked to join!"

    But as for whether it advances the GOProud cause, which is effectively, entitlement for rich (mostly white, mostly male) A-List gay men and screw the rest of us, it doesn't do anything to further their cause. It might help the cause of the rest of us, but far from being a prophetic voice crying in the desert, they're a bunch of spoiled brats whining in a sandbox.

  11. Remember, it is the Republican party and conservatives that have pushed for every single LGBT civil rights legislation! At least this is what GOProud members believe.

  12. Whatever happened to self respect ?

  13. Who cares?

  14. I mean, yeah, it's pathetic, but I pity these gay Republicans at this point. No-one should be excluded from a group that they feel strongly connected to because they're gay. But eventually you can't continue to be OK with being treated less than dirt. You have to find backbone and stop trying to be friends with people who don't want to be friends with you.

  15. Gay Republicans?

    I prefer old-fashioned S&M.

  16. did y'all see Django Unchained?

    Samuel L. Jackson gave the most blisteringly honest depiction of a gay republican ever portrayed in art.

  17. They're like abused women, certain of their abusers love, hoping he won't hit her again if she folds his shirt correctly this time...sad.

  18. This is one of the best (funniest) responses I read:

    CPAC: "....and the award for the most insecure quislings goes to: GOProud" (applaus)

    Jimmy LaSalvia: "Thank you so much CPAC, thank you and I just want to say......You hate us! You still really hate us!!"

  19. Anyone who wants to attend a CPAC convention, unless they are media people, is by definition a WINGNUT! Did you know that the John Birch Society still exists and attends CPAC to call attention to the government conspiracy concerning floride in our water?

  20. All political parties are coalitions. If we are going to tar the GOP with Michelle Bachmann then the DNC has a couple of people to answer for as well. Remember the Democratic Congressman who thought that the Navy might cause Guam to tip over? You want irrational beliefs? Here are some:

    The belief that giving amnesty to 12 million illegal aliens won't amount to an open border and an environmental, economic, and cultural disaster for the US.

    The belief that "Climate Change" can be "stopped" by taxing the hell out of energy at the expense of the American people and giving that money to third world countries. Global Warming religion is every bit as dangerous as Christian religion or Islamic religion. Islam wants to conquer the world and doesn't care if our way of life is destroyed in the process, and Global Warming Theology wants to "save" the world, and doesn't care if our way of life is destroyed in the process.

    The belief that undermining the Second Amendment will stop criminals and crazies from killing people.

    The belief that spending unlimited amounts of money on the least able and educable students will somehow produce a result which affirms the ridiculous belief that all people are equally able.

    The belief that forcing association between the good and the bad will transform the bad into good.

  22. that the "David Hearne's" of the world (read: cowardly anonymous trolls) can never man up and put a face to their comments only proves that they know themselves that they're full of s**t.

    Feel free to provide a link where you show your empowered manly gay male stance with those opinions, sugarpie.

    or continue being as useful and intellectually-relevant as tits on a fish. and half as attractive.

  23. They're perfect little Republicans opening wide for Big Daddy, yet still their party hates them and won't even let them in to sit at the kid's table. As for clout, what Simon said: they have zilch.

  24. Ernie:

    I'm not saying that we should be Republicans. I am a libertarian nationalist and have little regard for either ruling party. I am pointing out that gay people served the Democratic Party without respect or accommodation for a very long time before getting encouragement from leadership. Along the way we were ignored, dismissed, or abused by Democratic Catholics, Democratic Blacks, Democratic Whites, and even Democratic Feminists.

    I am saying that objectivity it always called for.
