The 'Gay Conservative' Oxymoron

A lot of folks on the right were perplexed with this yesterday, at Twitchy, for example, "Headdesk: Accuracy in Media writer claims, ‘There’s no such thing as a gay conservative’," and Vodka Pundit, "Gay Haters Gotta Hate."

But I've read the allegedly "hateful" piece, from Cliff Kincaid, and folks are misrepresenting what he writes (Bradley Manning is not argued to be conservative, for example, but as a member of "the homosexual movement"). See, "CPAC and the Conservatives":
The term “gay conservative” is being used by some news outlets in connection with the upcoming Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) and whether certain homosexual groups should be invited to appear. There is no such thing as a “gay conservative,” unless the term “conservative” has lost all meaning. But there is a homosexual movement that has its roots in Marxism and is characterized by anti-Americanism and hatred of Christian values.

Two of this movement’s members, Bradley Manning and Floyd Corkins, have recently been in the news. Manning betrayed his country in the WikiLeaks scandal, while Corkins has pleaded guilty to trying to kill conservative officials of the Christian Family Research Council in Washington, D.C.

Rather than debate whether “gay conservatives” exist or ought to have prominent speaking roles, CPAC should be sponsoring a panel on the dangers of the homosexual movement and why some of its members seem prone to violence, terror, and treason.
Continure reading.

It's a great piece, and dead-on 100 percent accurate.

And if all the folks outraged are defending GOProud, remember the group's chairman Chris Barron trashed top conservative Cleta Mitchell with what can only be described as a depraved left-wing attack. AoSHQ wrote about this recently, noting how he changed his mind on the controversy after he saw Barron's depravity. I can't find that link, although Erick Erickson sounded the alarm on this a couple of years ago.

The libertarian conservatives defending GOProud --- and attacking Kincaid --- are wrong. But the conservative movement's all messed up these days. And I don't care much about what happens at CPAC this year, in any case.
