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?

  3. Why those self loathing gay 'Toms would want to jump on a sinking ship is beyond me but masochism comes in all stripes I guess.

    They think they can bring about change. It's like gay activism: some people move to SF or DC to be "activists" which is of course carrying coals to Newcastle. Others actually stand their ground in Alabama and Mississippi and effect real change without all the applause.

    Again, did the Democratic Party support gay rights for the first 75 years of the Gay Rights Movement? Would you have condemned the gay activists who were ignored, shunned, and opposed for decades in the Democratic Party? Should they have packed it up and left? Where would we be if they had?

    Something you may not know about the Republican Party is that it's very much like the Democratic Party. The people who run it aren't really concerned with doing what's right- they are concerned with winning. The far left enjoyed some considerable power in the last two elections; the backlash is going to be considerable. Why? Because the "progressives" don't represent mainstream values, social, cultural, or economic. They are ideological parasites who will kill the host rather than face reality.

    It's the same in the GOP. The abortion/gay issues voters are a small but loud minority. The party panders to them because they are the ones who do the stoop labor of the party. Your average Republican that I call beach-republicans, don't give a damn about abortion and have no problem with gay rights but they aren't going to support the Democratic Party because of all the unconstitutional baggage and BS that the Progressives have loaded onto it.

    See what you did there? Whether it's you or Kiwi posting under my name is irrelevant. It's childish. Grow up.

  6. Some of us old gay white people with guns need our guns because our feminist mothers won't protect us from the men in our family who want us dead.

  7. @NOTEASILYOFFENDED: Thanks for taking on the Hearne troll. He spouts like a broken sewer pipe with ill-informed conjectures and FOX-toids and never provides anything to back up his commentary. To be that cranky all the time must be a miserable experience.
