Oliver North Tells CPAC That GOP Must Fight Gay Equality Like Abolitionists Fought Slavery: VIDEO

North

In a speech at CPAC today, Oliver North accused Obama of treating service members like “laboratory rats in some radical social experiment” by repealing 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' and said conservatives must fight marriage equality like abolitionists fought slavery, Right Wing Watch reports.

Said North.

"Some say that we must ignore social issues, like the definition of marriage and the sanctity of life, religious freedoms. I say those are not social issues. They are deeply moral and spiritual issues and they should be a part of America's elections. In the 1850's, a political party was born on the idea of a great moral issue - human bondage, the abolition of slavery in America. If we as conservatives cease to be a place where people of faith and those who believe in strong moral values can come, we will cease to be a political force in America.”

  3. Convicted of accepting an illegal gratuity, obstruction of a congressional inquiry, and destruction of documents. Freaking moral avatar.

  7. It's really amazing that this man is a speaker anywhere...

    I hope the media gives him credit for the villainous creep he is, rather than simply, Reagan administration appointee.

  8. Oliver North is a terrorist. He belongs at the Guantanamo concentration camp. This bloodthirsty war criminal wouldn't know "moral values" is they fell on his head.

  9. "strong moral values" lol

    This from Ollie North: a man who has been convicted of accepting bribes and obstruction of justice, and who only narrowly escaped punishment for committing high treason.

  10. It says something about those idiots that they allow this garbage to speak.

  11. The doesn't even make sense. Abolitionists fought to eradicate slavery. So he advocates enforcing oppression with an anti oppression analogy?

  12. "...we will cease to be a political force in America." Yes, that's the whole idea you has been bigot.

  13. Well, as Oliver North has stated, they will cease to be a political force in America. How prophetic.

  14. And least we forget: Oliver North was indicted on sixteen felony counts and convicted involving the Iran-Contra affair. He is a felon who was politically pardoned by none other then our worst president, Ronald Reagan. So much for his credibility.

  15. Good bye and good riddance...

  16. If put to a vote at CPAC, I'm certain a resolution to reinstate slavery would pass. After all, it's condoned in the Bible.

  17. Great speech Ollie, one who dressed in a Class A Uniform of the United States Marine Corps and lied to Congress, one who should have been dishonorably discharged for Conduct unbecoming a United States Marine and spent the rest of his useless life here in KS in a place called Fort Leavenworth.

  18. Its a real stretch to equate the kidnapping, imprisonment and forced hard labor of slavery with preventing two people who love each other from getting married. He should also remember that while Lincoln was a Republican and the Democrats were on the wrong side of civil rights (thru the 60s), the parties changed lanes around the time of Nixon and his Republicans are the ancestors of those that owned slaves.

  19. CPAC really digs deep into the crevices of the gutter to get speakers for their bigot event, now don't they.

  20. Another piece of out-of-touch white trash -- this one a felon. The conservative "heroes" are getting more and more pathetic.

  21. America has nothing to apologize for? Seriously - the man behind the illegal guns-for-hostages plot is saying this? Has he been medically assessed for insanity, or is he saying we should totally negotiate with terrorists and pay ransom for hostages?

  22. Putin:

    "Sometimes, I get the feeling that these people in America. They are sitting there, in their laboratory, and doing experiments, like on rats."

    North:

    "Obama of treating service members like “laboratory rats in some radical social experiment.”

    C'mon. Ollie. At least credit your sources.

  23. I'm not interested in hearing anything a traitor has to say. Not only that, but he obviously doesn't see the civil rights connection in his analogy, which busts it wide open.

  24. Well there you have it. No ifs or buts or misanderstood-messages about it: Oliver North is the truest voice of Republicans you can find.

    With an honest to man-made god on which the fabric of conveniently oppressive values are stitched with magical weaving of flexible beliefs that are specifically suited to the glory of the white-straight-old-bigotted man-fart. You cannot get a clearer message.

    A party in the past 28 months had stated the most atrociously hateful bigoted, xenophobic, homophobic prejudiced PUBLIC statements, is willing to use an anti-oppression historicallly and politically charged movement, so it suits their purpose to oppress the American people.

    Anyone non-white-old-staight man voting Republican is just self-hating and masochist in the saddest of ways.

  25. I hope this message resonates with voters. GOP=slavery.
