We’re heading up to Chicago today for the YearlyKos Netroots Convention, the second annual gathering of progressive bloggers and political activists who work in new media. YearlyKos is sponsored by Daily Kos founder Markos Moulitsas Zúniga. The four-day event kicks off tonight with keynote speeches by Sen. Richard Durbin (D-IL), Gov. Howard Dean (D-VT), Gen. Wesley Clark, and Markos Moulitsas Zuniga. We’re looking forward to meeting up with various progressive and GLBT bloggers, many of which we’ll be meeting in person for the first time this weekend.
Now let’s keep in mind a couple of facts. First, the Hypocrite Rights Campaign bills itself as “non-partisan” when they aren’t billing themselves as “bi-partisan” and when they aren’t being pure shills for the Democrat Nut-ional Committee. Second, since HRC shows up to the most radical Leftist nutroot group that exists today in America, how on earth can they honestly claim they want to reach out to “mainstream America” much less to moderate Republicans in Congress?
I’m guessing the war on gays by Islamic extremists won’t be worth a mention at the Kos lovefest. And far be it for the HRC to bring it up. It is an inconvenient truth.
So I have a question for Chris Johnson at HRC’s “Back Story”…. Would you accept an invitation to attend the CPAC Conference, or another conservative political conference? And let’s not hear the bull about “not ever being invited.” After all, yours truly was welcomed with open arms at the John Locke Foundation’s blogger conference in North Carolina last year.
