Panel Packed for 'Gay Infiltration' of CPAC While NOM Panel Attracts Sparse Crowd: PHOTOS, VIDEO

Gay_cpac

Two Instagram photos from Buzzfeed's Chris Geidner reveal that the only gay event at the 2013 CPAC conference - "A Rainbow on the Right: Growing the Coalition, Bringing Tolerance Out of the Closet" attracted lots of interest while Cleta Mitchell, Hans von Spakovsky, Ben Shapiro & Brian Brown's NOM panel (below)was left a bit wanting for interest.

As you may know, gay groups GOProud and Log Cabin Republicans were barred from the conference but found a way in via this panel, organized by the Competitive Enterprise Institute.

The Daily Beast has a report on the gay panel:

The event was hotly anticipated—and overly crowded—as the Competitive Enterprise Institute, a libertarian think tank actually invited to the Conservative Political Action Conference, circumnavigated the snub by hosting its own panel on same-sex marriage and asked GOProud co-founder and executive director Jimmy LaSalvia and others to speak.

“A new conservative coalition starts here in this room. Will you join us? Will you stand up to forces of intolerance?” LaSalvia implored the crowd. “Join us in building a better coalition that can win and use it in making America better.”

The message projected by LaSalvia and, echoed by his fellow panelists, was that government intervention in how people live is not the conservative way.

Meanwhile, AFA spokeshater Bryan Fischer welcomed Cliff Kincaid, the director of the 'Accuracy In Media Center' to his radio show for a hilarious segment about the gay "infilitration" of the conference.

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

  2. Was there an actual head-count at either event? Room size and camera angle can be deceptive. I hope what appears to be true was true. but a large room can seem empty with the same number of people which would make a smaller room seem full. I'm just sayin'...

  4. “Join us in building a better coalition that can win and use it in making America better.”

    - we have a coalition already trying to do this. It's known as the Democrats and everyone else working against the GOP.

    "The message projected by LaSalvia and, echoed by his fellow panelists, was that government intervention in how people live is not the conservative way."

    - no, it's the Liberal way, as in Liberty.

  5. Did LaSalvia make up more stories about being attacked by blacks?

    :)

  6. I count 17 people in the audience of that NOM photo and I'm being generous. If a shadow looked like it *might* be a person I counted it.

    Apparently thousands of (paranoid nuts) people attend CPAC so that is really pitiful attendance. Even the wingnuts don't really care that much about the "scourge" of gay marriage anymore.

    Jeez. Let it go!

    You have to kind of wonder about the mental health of people who are THAT concerned about gay marriage, considering it really doesn't affect them at all. The biggest news from the Prop 8 trial was that NONE of them could explain how it impacted them other than, "Well, the BIBLE says..."

  7. I believe that some people get into CPAC for free but most have to pay and then some of the events have tickets (those with the most popular speakers) while most are free. This can affect turnout for each event. Also, the time schedule (early or late) can affect turnout too. That said, NOM doesn't have much of a future except to perhaps protect the gains they've already made in 38 states with constitutional amendments against gay marriage, the action is now at the Supreme Court and not the states and the crowds trend young at CPAC--they keep voting libertarian in the straw polls--so this makes sense. CPAC is almost self defeating.

  8. "...ay groups GOProud and Log Cabin Republicans were barred from the conference but found a way in via this panel.."

    It makes me sad that they'd rather hustle their way in to a place where they aren't wanted then stand up straight and walk proudly amongst a democratic party that is overwhelmingly (not totally... I'm looking at you, suburban Illinois Dems!) trying to fight for their rights.

  9. It'll be cool when "the conservative way" abandons entirely the gay scapegoat-ism and anti-family agenda in favor of being inclusive.

    At that point, where will the bigots and haters all go ?

    I guess we may finally eventually have a third party in the US.
