Ryan Sorba, from the Young Americans for Freedom organization’s California chapter, was booed off the stage tonight at CPAC, for deriding CPAC’s choice to have GOProud attend CPAC, even going so far as to say he “condemns CPAC”. Not the sort of thing one would say when invited to speak at the biggest gathering of Conservatives who look to CPAC for guidance and networking.
GOProud is, in their own words:
GOProud represents gay conservatives and their allies. GOProud is committed to a traditional conservative agenda that emphasizes limited government, individual liberty, free markets and a confident foreign policy. GOProud promotes our traditional conservative agenda by influencing politics and policy at the federal level.
Watch for yourselves.
Just like not all liberals are for abortion, not all Conservatives are against homosexuality. CPAC is a place for Conservative Thought, and is attended by folks who share the common denominator of Conservative Thought, albeit in varying shades and flavors. Mr. Sorba picked a heck of a place to grandstand, and I am most sure that his words will be used as a weapon against all Conservatives, except for the members of GOProud, of course. Freedom of Speech is still Freedom of Speech, though.
I really don’t think he’ll be asked to speak next year. Um, no.
