Tammy Bruce’s Nasty Ambush Interview and Cliff Kincaid on CPAC, ‘Gays’ and the Conservatives

Thursday, March 14th, 2013

“Conservative” business group brings pro-homosexual “Rainbow on the Right” panel to CPAC

Self-styled "conservative" and lesbian Tammy Bruce isn't very "conservative" when it comes to homosexuality.

Self-styled “conservative” and lesbian Tammy Bruce isn’t very “conservative” when it comes to homosexuality. If the Republican Party starts supporting “out and proud” homosexuality and “gay marriage,” it will divide the Party and alienate its socially conservative base.

Folks, my friend and America’s Survival president Cliff Kincaid is getting a lot of flack from the Left and LGBT activists over this piece (below) highlighting Marxist connections to homosexual activism. CPAC, the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, D.C., begins today and runs through Saturday.

In protest of CPAC denying the homosexual-activist Republican group “GOProud” a sponsoring role at its annual conference, the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI) used its privilege as a major CPAC sponsor to hold a special panel (tonight) titled, “A Rainbow on the Right: Growing the Coalition, Bringing Tolerance Out of the Closet,” which will promote “inclusion” of homosexuals (and Republican “gay” activist groups like GOProud) in the conservative movement. Among the CEI panelists is libertarian, pro-“gay marriage” pundit Margaret Hoover and GOProud co-founder Jimmy LaSalvia — but not a single stalwart social conservative like Kincaid who opposes the homosexual activist agenda on principle.

Homosexual activism — fighting for “rights” based on sexual deviancy — and oxymoronic “same-sex marriage” are the antithesis of conservatism. Certainly, practicing homosexuals can vote Republican and be conservative on various issues — taxes, foreign policy, etc. And they can even oppose what I call the “Big Gay Government” agenda, which is in the vanguard of repressing religious freedom — ironically, in the name of “nondiscrimination.” But I have found that usually the personal “gay” aspect of “gay conservatives” dominates and drives them to be very anti-conservative on that particular issue. An example is supposed “conservative” and open lesbian Tammy Bruce. She is terrific on many issues and an articulate critic of leftist excesses. But when it comes to her pet issue, homosexuality, Bruce at times has behaved like a typical irrational, left-wing extremist.

Years ago, in a response to a release AFTAH put out critical of “Gay Day” at Disney World, Bruce interviewed me on her radio show, posing as a bullying “homophobe.” (I foolishly had failed to research her before appearing on the show.) In the radio business this is known as an ambush interview. Executing her on-air ruse, Bruce tried to goad me into saying that it was OK to get violent with homosexuals — because, of course, from Bruce’s fanatical and warped perspective, my opposition to homosexual activism meant that I “hated gays” enough to want to beat them up! (AFTAH and its predecessor, The Lambda Report, have from their inception (LR in 1993) condemned violence against and hatred of homosexuals.)

Libertarian Margaret Hoover is pushing the GOP to embrace homosexual "marriage."

Libertarian Margaret Hoover is pushing the GOP to embrace homosexual “marriage.”

Thankfully, I didn’t play into Bruce’s jaundiced “gay” stereotype, because I don’t hate homosexuals. Frustrated that I didn’t fall for her “Religious-Right-as-Antigay-Bully” trap, she closed the show by defiantly announcing that she was an “out lesbian” and that I had one minute to respond. It was a harrowing experience that violated all rules of civil discourse. I ended up haltingly affirming that it’s OK to oppose homosexuality and that doesn’t translate into “hating gays.”

It was telling that Bruce never had the courage or decency to provide me a tape of the program when I requested it. She also never apologized to me, because I suppose the ends justify the means and “hateful homophobic bigots” like me deserve to be mistreated, right? (Even now, Bruce — like GOProud co-founder Chris Barron — blocks me on her Twitter account; sign up to follow me on Twitter at https://twitter.com/PeterLaBarbera.)

I tell this story to illustrate the folly of the Republican Party folding “out and proud” homosexuality — and “gay” activism of GOProud’s variety — into its Big Tent. First and foremost, homosexual behavior is immoral and hence defending it – much less ascribing it legal rights — is anti-conservative, assuming that conservatives defend Judeo-Christian mores.

Transsexuals Need Christ, NOT “Sex Change” Surgery

Recently I had the pleasure of doing an in-depth, four-part radio interview with Walt Heyer, a Christian man and FORMER transsexual who once lived as a “woman” named “Laura” (see before-and-after photos above).  Walt had the Gender Reassignment Surgery – yes, the one that makes men wince at the mere thought of it.  (It is frequently called a “sex-change” operation even though, as Walt stresses, a person cannot change their biological sex.)

Walt discovered too late that finally “becoming Laura,” as it were, through a body-disfiguring operation didn’t solve his severe “gender” problem.  But thank God he ultimately DID find healing through the grace of the Lord — who labored through faithful and loving Christians who stood by Walt and helped restore him to the man he was created to be.  Now Walt has dedicated the rest of his life to helping others avoid this awful surgery and the “sex-change regret” that he had; instead, he directs them to the healthy CHANGE available through Jesus Christ.

Walt Heyer as “Laura,” his former fantasy-female identity. Heyer underwent radical “gender reassignment surgery” but now warns others not to undergo the disfiguring operation.

LISTEN: AFTAH Interview with Gary Glenn – Part Two

Thursday, February 10th, 2011

This is Part 2 [click HERE to listen] of our 4-part interview with Gary Glenn, president of American Family Association of Michigan [see Part 1 HERE]. It was pre-taped and aired Feb. 6, 2011. AFTAH President Peter LaBarbera and Glenn discussed how “sexual orientation” laws are inherently discriminatory against people of faith and anyone who opposes homosexuality. Glenn ticks off case after case of Christians and moral organzations like the Boy Scouts being victimized by pro-homosexual “sexual orientation” laws. Glenn also holds a mini radio “Truth Academy” on the proper mindset for pro-family work — urging activists not to use defensive language that suits the Homosexual Lobby’s debate frame but rather to put homosexual activists on the defensive by “telling the truth” that the “homosexual agenda itself discriminates against people.” Glenn and LaBarbera agree that the idea of “civil unions” as a supposed compromise is a non-starter — noting how the concept was regarded as “radical” in Vermont just a few years ago, while today leading liberal elites easily jump from backing “civil unions” to “gay marriage.”  Glenn also discusses school bullying laws, urging an approach that protects ALL students without “segregating” them by singling out “sexual orientation.”

LISTEN: AFTAH Interview with Gary Glenn – Part One

Wednesday, February 2nd, 2011

This is the first of a multi-part interview [Click HERE] with Gary Glenn, president of American Family Association of Michigan. It was pre-taped and aired January 29, 2011. AFTAH president Peter LaBarbera describes Glenn as one of the most effective, strategic and principled pro-family leaders in the United States (which probably explains why he is despised and routinely smeared by the pro-homosexuality Left and pro-“gay” Republicans). Part of the conversation revolves around whether “conservatism” can abide the promotion of homosexuality through Republican-oriented groups such as GOProud — which has been accepted as a sponsor at the upcoming CPAC (Conservative Political Action Conference) in D.C. Glenn says the truly conservative portions of GOProud’s stated agenda (e.g., support for gun rights) are “window dressing’ for their real goal of “advancing the homosexual agenda.” He also discusses the recent lame-duck congressional repeal of the ban on homosexuals in the military – noting that our Armed Forces are “being used as a tool of social experimentation.” Glenn said pro-family advocates need to deal with the reality that politicians “understand two things”: punishment and rewards.

CPAC’s GOProud Controversy Continues — FRC, CWA Pull Out

Tuesday, December 28th, 2010

“Would CPAC bring in an organization specifically devoted to promoting abortion and pretend it’s conservative?

Shame on CPAC for defending the absurd proposition that one can be ‘conservative’ while embracing moral surrender – in this case the idea espoused by GOProud of the government granting ‘rights’ and benefits based on sinful sexual conduct long regarded as anathema to biblical and Judeo-Christian values.” — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH, quoted in WorldNetDaily.com

TAKE ACTION: There is nothing “conservative” about promoting homosexual behavior in the name of “civil rights.” Contact American Conservative Union (703-836-8602) and urge them to live up to their name and stop “gaying down” conservatism by embracing pro-homosexuality activism through CPAC. (ACU has allowed the homosexual activist group GOProud to be a sponsor at its Conservative Political Action Conference, to be held Feb. 10-12, 2010 in Washington, D.C.) ACU’s offices are closed for the holiday, but you can leave them a message on their voicemail or through their website contact page.

Biggest conservative names bidding goodbye to CPAC

Participation of homosexuals, financial mismanagement cited

By Brian Fitzpatrick
© 2010 WorldNetDaily; 12/27/10

Two of the nation’s premier moral issues organizations, the Family Research Council and Concerned Women for America, are refusing to attend the Conservative Political Action Conference in February because a homosexual activist group, GOProud, has been invited.

“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 has decided not to participate in part because of GOProud,” CWA President Penny Nance told WND.

Fresh from HomoCon, Ann Coulter Comes to Chicago for Culture Campaign Event Oct. 7th

Friday, October 1st, 2010

Conservative pundit angers liberal “gay” activists by telling GOProud that there is no gay “civil right” to marry; criticizes homosexual propaganda in schools

Ann Coullter comes to Chicagoland Thursday, Oct. 7th. Coulter outraged "queer" liberals like Perez Hilton when she told 'conservative' homosexuals at GOProud's "Homocon" event that same-sex "marriage" "is not a civil right -- you're not black!"

WARNING: GRAPHIC DESCRIPTIONS

[CORRECTION: we received a note from homosexual blogger Joe Jervis (Joe.My.God.) pointing us to a Human Events article by Lisa De Pasquale that clarifies some careless reporting by Politico of Ann Coulter’s GOProud speech: it was not a GOProud member (as I reported, relying on Politico) but rather a joking Greg Gutfeld of the latenight FOX show “Red Eye” who “heckled” Coulter, blurting out, “What’s wrong with fisting?” after she — using her patented comic hyperbole — accused liberals of wanting to teach kindergartners about “fisting.” Coulter and Gutfeld are friends. (Her point of reference was surely the infamous 2000 Boston “Fistgate” incident, in which middle- high school kids actually WERE instructed verbally about “fisting” — at a Gay, Lesbian, Straight Education Netword (GLSEN)-sponsored conference. (“Fisting” is a dangerous homosexual sadomasochistic perversion in which a man inserts his arm up another man’s rectum.) 

[We have removed the portion of this article in which we speculated that it was a GOPround member or supporter who asked, “What’s wrong with fisting?” Also, it also should be noted that, despite the value of correcting the record on Coulter’s speech, De Pasquale works for American Conservative Union, which supports GOProud and defended the homosexual group’s sponsorship of the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) — against complaints by conservative Christian groups who accused CPAC of promoting the acceptance of homosexuality. AFTAH opposed GOProud’s sponsorship of CPAC.  — Peter LaBarbera, www.AmericansForTruth.org]

LaBarbera to Ann Coulter: Reconsider Appearance at Event for GOProud — Phony ‘Gay Conservatives’

Tuesday, August 10th, 2010

Would Ann Coulter speak at an event for “Republicans For Responsible Porn Use,” or “Republicans for Higher Taxes,” or Republicans for Choice (Abortion) -- if such groups took legitimately conservative positions on other issues like gun rights?

Contact: Peter LaBarbera: 630-717-7631; e-mail: AmericansForTruth@gmail.com ; August 10, 2010

CHICAGO — Americans For Truth About Homosexuality President Peter LaBarbera today urged conservative pundit Ann Coulter to reconsider her appearance at “Homocon,” a September event for the homosexual Republican group GOProud

LaBarbera said: 

As a fan of Ann Coulter, it pains me to see her cave in to political correctness and lend credibility to the phony homosexual “conservatives” over at GOProud. Worse, Coulter is sending a dangerous message to young Americans that homosexuality is OK. (It’s actually a sin.) Fully half of GOProud’s top 10 federal priorities center on using the Government to advance homosexuality, including: 

#4 – “Repealing ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’” – Homosexualizing the military is reckless, especially in wartime. GOProud claims to defend “individual liberty,” but what about the privacy rights of normal soldiers who don’t want to bunk and shower with men who lust after other men? Moreover, if DADT is repealed, the military will become a massive government bureaucracy for pro-homosexual “diversity” – subjecting millions of tradition-minded servicemen to Orwellian, same-sex propaganda to enforce its new lavender crusade. (Chaplains: beware.) 

# 7 – “Opposing any anti-gay federal marriage amendment.” Coulter must know that America might be just one Supreme Court justice away from legalizing oxymoronic homosexual “marriage” – which would undermine religious freedom in every state in the nation. A Federal Marriage Amendment could be the only way to stop this Roe v. Wade-like disaster. And since when did state-enforced homosexual “marriage” – with its corrosive effect on liberty and linkage to Homosexuality Promotion in schools — become “conservative”?
