At least they booed him down

Via TPM:

During a CPAC segment to recognize student conservative activists from across the country, one particular conservative, Ryan Sorba of the California Young Americans for Freedom, denounced CPAC for allowing the gay conservative group GOProud to co-sponsor the event and host a booth. After finishing his short speech against homosexuality as being contrary to the concept of natural rights — amidst booing from the crowd — he walked off the stage.

“Just to change the subject for just a second, I’d like to condemn CPAC for bringing GOPride (sic) to this event,” said Sorba. The young activist crowd erupted into booing, but Sorbs continued. “Bring it. Bring it. I love it. I love it. I love it.

“Guess what? Guess what? All right, guess what? Civil rights are grounded in natural rights,” said Sorba. “Natural rights are grounded in human nature. Human nature is a rational substance in relationship. The intelligible end of the reproductive act is reproduction. Do you understand that? Civil rights, when they conflict with natural rights, are contrary — hey, you sit down. The lesbians at Smith College protest better than you do. The lesbians at Smith College protest than you do. All right? Bring it.”

Fundamentally flawed a priori reasoning and self-righteous machismo FTL!

That man probably believes he is Socrates and Jesus rolled into one, and twice as persecuted. I can see him going back to his hotel room and muttering about how right and how unappreciated he is into a dog-eared copy of The Fountainhead.

Also: CPAC is allowing the John Fucking Birch Society to co-sponsor. (Photographic evidence.) You know, the one that formed in the ’60’s to purge the Republican party of blacks, Mormons, evolutionists and Jews?  The one that accused Eisenhower of being a Communist agent? The one who was last in the spotlight in the 1970’s for slandering police officers? The one now devoted to initiatives to dissolve The Fed and withdraw the US from the UN? Goddamn. William F. Buckley was William F. Buckley, but you have to give him credit for purging these kooks from mainstream politics forty years ago. Now, barely two years after his death, they’re welcomed back in.

I guess Buckely’s wasn’t a legacy modern conservatives see worthy of conserving. It’s more important to them to rally one more pyramid of teabagging cheerleaders than to honor one of their movement’s intellecutal consciences.

  1. I think the conservatives need to take all the supporters they can get right now, and if they can find LGBTQ people who have enough self-loathing to support a party who doesn’t want them to have any rights, the conservatives should nurture them like newborn babies. It’s rare enough already to come across a conservative LGBTQ person without members of the party condemning their allies to their face.

    Also, that guy just looks like a total a**hole. lol.

  2. Natural rights?

    What?

    You have the right to get eaten and shit out of a tiger.

    Unless he means what humans have established as natural rights in which case hes still wrong
