Sometimes You Feel Like a Nut…at CPAC


In what had been fairly subdued morning and afternoon sessions on the second day of the CPAC conference, during a lightning round of two-minute speeches by ten or so young activists, one Ryan Sorba, of the Young Conservatives of California, decided to make an ass out of himself.

He ranted:

I’d like to condemn CPAC for bringing GOPride [sic] to this event. Civil rights are grounded in natural rights. Natural rights are grounded in human nature. Human nature is a rational substance in relationship to the intelligible end of the reproductive act of reproduction. Do you understand that?

Then a funny thing happened on the way to the conservative forum.  The audience, at maximum capacity awaiting Dr. Ron Paul began to boo the asshat!

He continued:

Civil rights when they conflict with natural rights are contrary… Will you sit down? The lesbians at Smith College protest better than you do. The lesbians at Smith College protest better than you do.

And they continued to boo!  And then he finally sat down.

As a gay Republican, it was heartwarming to see that reaction from that audience.  However, to be expected, there were some in the audience who did applaud the fucker.

Watch the full video.

    Goproud is a sponsor; socon groups threatened pull out if goproud was allowed stay; CPAC told the socon groups to pound sand; goproud has been welcomed by participants; Sorba states the socon line and he is boo’d.

    Gay conservatives have a long way to go, but the door was opened and they were welcomed in. I am encouraged (not elated).

    I joined the republican party in 1980 as a member of the Young Republicans in Seattle Washington. I was 12 years old and having studied the constitution and politics of the day I found myself believing the ideals of the GOP in smaller government, personal freedom and responsibility, fiscal responsibility etc. Anyone who knows anything about Seattle, knows this wasn’t an easy choice.

    Then as the 80’s went on the GOP became the party of Ralph Reed and the religious right. In 1987 the first time I was old enough to vote I voted for George Herbert Walker Bush for President as my one and only vote as a registered republican. I still remember that Tuesday night at the republican convention when I was told gay’s weren’t welcome in the republican party. That I was sick and twisted and my vote wasn’t welcome anymore. I kept trying to understand how this religious shift had anything to do with smaller government, personal freedom and responsibility or fiscal responsibility. These were the ideals that I believed in then and still do to this day.

    I thought about becoming a democrat, but couldn’t bring myself to do it, I joined the libertarian party as a socially liberal, fiscally conservative American. If ever the republican’s pull their head out of the sand and remember what the party is really about then perhaps there will be a future for them beyond convincing people that its all about the three “G’s” of the 80’s and the fear mongering that went with it.

    The party I joined in 1980 of great republicans like Goldwater is somewhere in there. I hope they find themselves for the good of the nation.

    A gov that enforces immorality is dangerous, but less so, than one that enforces morality. Our Constitution supports neither position.
