GayPatriot readers, let me introduce you to Alexander McCobin from Students For Liberty. Alexander was one of the student activists who spoke from the main CPAC stage yesterday. He spoke up IN FAVOR of CPAC’s including GOProud BEFORE Ryan Sorba’s tirade a few minutes later.
THIS IS THE PART OF THE STORY THAT HASN’T BEEN TOLD YET.
UPDATE at 5:00PM – I’ve learned a couple of important facts that shed some more light on this whole incident. First, folks have emailed pointing out that there were boos when Alexander spoke (see video) below. But the boos were quickly and resoundingly overtaken by applause. Secondly, the booing was started by none other than Ryan Sorba and it is quite possible he was THE ONLY one booing since he was onstage and near a microphone.
From Students For Liberty on the CPAC kerfuffle:
Secondly, I have found out that Ryan’s outburst was a publicity stunt. Ryan is hawking a new book called “The ‘Born Gay’ Myth”. That pretty much speaks for itself and the CPAC crowd rejected Ryan’s message and tactics resoundingly.
The first video is Alexander’s remarks yesterday.
The second video is my interview with Alexander this morning.
