Big Announcement: Right Wing News Is Sponsoring Homocon


The Log Cabin Republicans have long been an annoyance. They’re a gay “Republican” group that withheld their endorsement of George Bush in 2004* and they essentially sound identical to every liberal gay group that you run across. In other words, there’s nothing meaningfully Republican about the Log Cabin Republicans or any point to their continued existence.

So, when GOProud split off from the Log Cabin Republicans because they wanted to create a genuinely conservative group for gay Republicans, I thought it was an extremely positive development. That doesn’t mean I agree with GOProud on every issue, but as Ronald Reagan said, “My 80 percent friend is not my 20 percent enemy.”

With that in mind, when there was controversy over GOProud getting a sponsorship slot at CPAC, I came to their defense. I also interviewed GOProud’s Chairman of the Board, Christopher Barron, and I liked his perspective,

When you look at our legislative agenda and the issues that we’re working on, we think the question of “gay rights” has been narrowly defined by the left. We think that if you want to improve the lives of every day gay and lesbian folks all across this country, you can do things like reform our tax code and provide for personal savings accounts in social security, free market health care reform, the type of stuff that’s going to improve the lives of every American in this country.

We certainly do understand that there are going to be conservatives who disagree with us on issues like same-sex marriage. We understand that and respect that. But, the fact is that movement conservatives aren’t going to agree on everything.

…We work with folks like Tom Coburn. We worked with John Thune on a concealed carry amendment. We work with conservative members. We’re a conservative organization. I was really moved and not really surprised, but happy, about the support that we’ve gotten from fellow conservatives.

As you can see, I have a history of backing GOProud. So, when I heard that Ann Coulter was going to be doing a fund raiser for them, it definitely caught my eye,

Homocon

Today, I want to make an announcement: Right Wing News is the first sponsor of Homocon. We’re going to be supporting the event, promoting it, and encouraging Republicans in New York to attend. Thanks to GOProud for giving us the opportunity and thanks to Ann Coulter for creating what’s sure to be a memorable event that people will want to attend.

Correction: Originally, this post said the Log Cabin Republicans endorsed John Kerry in 2004, but actually they just withheld their endorsement of George W. Bush, which isn’t quite the same thing.

They Don’t Know Their History at All–This is Elitism Straight Up

To understand the frustration of legacy media journalists such as New York Timeso racialist Kate Zernike over the strength of the Tea Parties and the resurgence of Friedrich Hayek and other past voices from the right, let’s paraphrase Janene Garofalo’s infamous rant last year on MSNBC. It’s not about bashing Republicans, it’s not about taxes, they have no idea what the Boston tea party was about, they don’t know their history at all. This is about hating conservatives in America.
