Rightwing homophobes boycotting CPAC.
CPAC is the biggest convention of rightwing nutters each year. GOProud will be on hand again this year, which of course pisses off the most extreme of the nutters groups. From TPMuckraker:
As the right-wing World Net Daily reports:
“We’ve been very involved in CPAC for over a decade and have managed a couple of popular sessions. However, we will no longer be involved with CPAC because of the organization’s financial mismanagement and movement away from conservative principles,” said Tom McClusky, senior vice president for FRC Action.
“CWA [Concerned Women for America] has decided not to participate in part because of GOProud,” CWA President Penny Nance told WND. [Ed. note: Penny Nance’s title is chief executive officer of CWA. Another individual, Wendy Wright, holds the title of president.]
A few other social conservative organizations — including the National Organization for Marriage, which was at last year’s conference — have also withdrawn from the event.
Big tent? I don’t think so, its more like a pup tent. The homophobic crowd just can’t stomach those ‘gay’ groups that align themselves with the republican party. Way to go haters!
