STATEMENT FROM GOPROUD BOARD

Posted by Bruce Carroll at 6:45 pm - December 10, 2011.
Filed under: GOProud

As a member of the GOProud Board, I’m publishing this statement:

On behalf of the GOProud Board and its members and supporters, we want to make it very clear that “outing” a gay or lesbian individual is wrong and should never be used as a political weapon.

Private lives should remain just that — private. The right to disclose one’s sexual orientation belongs solely to each individual. We will continue to oppose “outing” as it has never advanced a political cause but only hurts individuals and their families.

We strongly regret the events of this week.

  1. ILC, it was very sweet of you to edit Dalla’s quote to make him sound less deranged.

  2. Actually, what most people would consider deranged is saying that, if the Denver Broncos win the Super Bowl, Christians will riot, kill gays, and burn down mosques.

    But we all notice that you don’t consider that deranged. Just pointing it out, though, qualifies.

  3. He didn’t edit the part where you pointed out the loony left comments. That’s not the part that makes you sound deranged.

    No, he edited out the part where you attribute the comments to Jasun and Obama.

    Of course, pretending you didn’t understand that just makes you seem all the more nutty.

  7. So now you’re just repeating yourself Dalla? Looks like that old saw about “the definition of insanity” has been proven again.

    Comment by JJ — December 14, 2011 @ 11:11 pm - December 14, 2011

  8. But, JJ, since you’re neither a psychiatrist or psychologist, you’re not qualified to define or identify insanity. Furthermore, even if you were, you’ve never seen me in person, so your attempt to do so is, while completely consistent with Obama Party and liberal practice, also wholly unethical.

    You can continue to spin and avoid and dodge, but everyone is seeing how desperate liberals like yourself are to avoid taking responsibility for your claims that if the Denver Broncos win the Super Bowl, Christians will riot, kill gays, and burn down mosques. Your bigotry and that of your Barack Obama is now fully out in the open, and you’re losing more and more support because of it.

  9. Great diversion, Dalla, but doesn’t change the fact that even your buddies choose to rewrite your words to take out the crazy. Love it!

    Back to the old you’re moving the goal posts rant.

    However, it may be the first time I have seen the metaphor applied to an actual football conversation.

    NDT, erred in stating that these were the words of Obama and the words of Jasun Mark. They are the words of a Jewish rabbi. NDT painted with too broad a brush, perhaps, when he stated the names of those who did not utter the words. However, it is to be determined if Obama and the libs and Jasun will disavow the words as whacko and crazy and distance themselves from the Jewish rabbi who felt comfortable printing them in the Jewish newspaper. As a huge majority of New York Jews are a strong base of financial and voting support for Democrat liberals it is not unlikely that the Democrat liberals will react to such blatant bigotry by ignoring it.

    It is telling that NDT is being attacked for stating something that he should perhaps have clarified, but the actual meat of the post is being left to stand.

    Have you no shame, JJ? Can you not bring yourself to join NDT in damning such bigotry and then return to browbeating NDT over his way of overusing conversational shorthand?

    My bet is that NDT would concede the point instantly that he can not produce evidence that Obama and Jasun said the words.

    Which brings us back to the point of who is diverting (moving the goal posts!) and who is not.

  12. The link NDT provided has been scrubbed of the Rabbi’s rant. Those interested in the core of what NDT was after might try this:

    Exactly. JJ, if you think you’re ‘winning’ here… stop kidding yourself.

  14. The simple fact is: the rabbi is a bigot. He showed his anti-Christian bigotry and hatred. So do some others.

    Not instantly.

    Only after the point at which JJ condemns Nancy Pelosi as “deranged” for stating that her allegedly seeing a swastika means all Tea Party participants were Nazis.

    Only after the point at which JJ condemns Mike Rogers as “crazy” for stating that all Republicans want to put gays in concentration camps.

    You get the idea. I will do many things, but I will not unilaterally disarm. JJ and Jasun Mark want conservatives to follow the rules while they ignore them freely. I am moving the battleground onto their rules and holding them accountable using their own standards.

    The weakness of Obama puppets and liberals like JJ and Jasun Mark is that, under all their bravado and blustering about “war”, is an irrational and deep-seated fear of being rejected by their Obama Party and being subjected to the same sort of abuse that they have, at the behest of their Obama Party, heaped on other gays that dared not toe the line.

  16. I will not unilaterally disarm

    I know what you’re saying: you’re throwing lefties’ tactics back in their faces. Still, in my book, some tactics aren’t worth using (in terms of effectiveness) even if the enemy has earned them.

    Comment by ILoveCapitalism — December 15, 2011 @ 3:21 pm - December 15, 2011

  17. Either way, instantly or not, JJ has not been back to plead his case. The reason is clear. He hasn’t got one.

  18. #97

    ILC gives a nice summary of the hammering in comment #92, as does Heliotrope in comments #87 and #98. I’m sure I’m not the only one that noticed how you seem to forget what you’ve said in previous comments (as Heliotrope points out in comment #87).

  19. And as for “the non-existent threat of Sharia law,” maybe it’s not as big a threat as some people make it out to be. But where’s your evidence that is isn’t? If you think Muslims make up a large percentage of Europe’s population now, and if you think they’re causing problems over there already (which, based on your comments, you probably don’t, but you would be wrong), just wait until they reproduce at a much faster rate than native Europeans. Their influence will increase. It would be naive to assume that won’t happen in N. America. And even if it doesn’t, Muslims gaining influence in Europe threatens Western values here (and everywhere else). The Middle East is causing enough problems. The last thing we need is to have a Muslim Europe (where radical Muslims and their terrorist organizations can hide and breed).

    So, perhaps there is an element of fear-mongering in the “anti-sharia” crowd. But it’s somewhat based in reality, and it’s better to be vigilant than complacent.
