GOProud, Log Cabin Republicans Won't Participate In CPAC This Year

Source: Huffington Post

WASHINGTON -- Though the Republican Party's stance on same-sex marriage faced criticism from within its own ranks following the 2012 election, this year's session of the top conservative gabfest will not include the two leading conservative gay rights groups.

GOProud and the Log Cabin Republicans will not be participating in the annual Conservative Political Action Conference, top executives from both groups confirmed on Wednesday.

"We were kicked out last year and nothing has changed and we wont be at CPAC," GOProud's Jimmy LaSalvia said in an interview. "The last communication I've had from them is that we were kicked out. Nothing has changed."

"At the present time, we have no plans to participate in CPAC this year," Log Cabin Republicans spokesman West Honeycutt told The Huffington Post.

3. CUE THE VONAGE THEME!

Now all we have to do is get them to stop participating in the Republican party.

9. The problem is that they essentially agree with the Republicans on the rest of the issues

But they are treated like pariahs because their party is a bunch of homophobic assholes. They have to make a decision whether they sit on the sidelines watching their party implode or join us.

4. Uh guys...

You know, they (the GOP) are just not that into you. I say this just in case you haven't been paying attention for the last, I don't know, 200 years.

5. Clueless Collaborators in their own Undoing

Glad the Loggies are showing at least a scintilla of common sense for once.

6. I don't think this is what happened.

 

They were kicked out. They didn't leave voluntarily.

They haven't learned a fuckin' thing.

10. OMG

That is just sad. Sounds like the Right Wing is gearing up to be more transparent in their hate, and the Loggies are still hoping futilely that Republicans will give them a scintilla of respect as human beings.

Sad.

8. I've known a few. All were in finance industries or associated with finance.

Bankers, real estate agents, and a lawyer for an investment firm.

All self centered pricks that prided their cash over society.

Cared nothing about politics, gave money to Republicans to protect their industries, and then didn't even vote.

11. Conservatism continues sinking to irrelevance.

I mean, Sarah Palin is speaking at the clown convention this year! She makes "Who Let the Dogs Out?" sound avant garde.

12. Gay Republican?

That's like being a black confederate soldier.

That's like being a chicken for colonel sanders.

That's like being a jewish nazi soldier.
