GOProud Banned From CPAC (Again)

GOProud has again been barred from participating in CPAC, the annual wingnut conference where the far-right plots on voter suppression, getting Jesus into public schools, and how to thwart civil equality for LGBT Americans.  You may recall the 2011 kerfuffle in which then-GOProud head Chris Barron called CPAC organizer Cleta Mitchell a “nasty bigot,” for which Barron later apologized after …

Email Of The Day – Eugene Delgaudio

“Joe, We took CPAC back for the Family! Last year, I was forced to stand against the establishment by handing out flyers at the door warning of the homosexual influence.

Victoria Jackson At CPAC

“I’m here to save America from communism. The people of California voted that they did not believe that gay marriage — no gay marriage. They voted that. A judge, probably gay, activist judge, overturned that. That’s what I’m talking about — communism. [snip] That’s not marriage. It’s in the Bible. God created it. He did not create gay marriage. He …
