GOProud and the CPAC split

Alongside conservative tax icon Grover Norquist, right-wing radio host Tammy Bruce and Fox News O’Reilly Factor regular Margaret Hoover, as well as former Republican party official Liz Mair, Breitbart is one of a growing number of unexpected voices supporting the upstart gay conservative group.

What’s more, Breitbart has opened up a side of himself that those on the left (and some on the right) never thought they would – and might not want to – see.

”The majority agrees on the humanity of gay people – and to treat gay people like you treat all people,” Breitbart says, talking with Metro Weekly the week before CPAC – the annual conference that brings a slew of conservative students, activists and would-be presidents to town…

With a nod of agreement from LaSalvia, Barron concludes, ”There’s a lot of people in the conservative movement who are looking very differently at the [Heritage Foundation].”

He’s singing the same tune when it comes to DeMint, who is joined by Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) in claiming GOProud as part of his reason for staying away from this weekend’s conference.

Of those calling for the boycott, Barron says, ”They’re all excited that Jim DeMint is boycotting. And that’s fantastic. I’m glad that he’s willing to be on the Island of Political Misfit Toys with [World Net Daily’s Joseph] Farah and the Concerned Women for America.”
