    SE Cupp pulls out of CPAC until groups representing gay Republicans are embraced

    S.E. Cupp Pulls Out of CPAC Until Groups Representing Gay Republicans Are Embraced | TheBlaze.com

    TheBlaze TV’s S.E. Cupp on Tuesday announced she is pulling out of CPAC until the annual conservative gathering welcomes GOP groups that support gay marriage. Two prominent groups representing gay Republicans, GOProud and the Log Cabin Republicans, will reportedly not be in attendance at CPAC.


    “I go to CPAC every year. I love speaking there. It’s a great opportunity for conservatives, young and old from all over the world, to get together and sort of touch base,” Cupp said on MSNBC’s “The Cycle.”


    CPAC has reportedly permitted groups advocating for gay marriage to attend, however, they are unable to sponsor the event. Cupp said that is a bit of a “cop-out” on the issue.
    “Ive been thinking about this a lot, and I know a lot of people on my side of the isle have been struggling with this for some time now too,” she added. “I’ve been scheduled to speak at CPAC this year, and I don’t think I can until this issue is reconciled and figured out.”


    Cupp said Republicans are divided on gay marriage, an issue that the party can “no longer seem to avoid.” She explained that several Republicans, including four former governors, have signed a legal brief arguing that gays have a constitutional right to marry. The brief will be submitted to the Supreme Court this week in support of a lawsuit to overturn California’s Prop 8, which limited marriage to the union of a man and a woman.

    The Conservatives need to learn a phrase - "Matters such as gay marriage and abortion are individual issues best handled at the local level. These are not federal issues and the federal government needs to stay out of such things. We can not have a limited government and at the same time have that government engaged in individual matters. The force of the state can be wielded for a great many things but it is our job as Conservatives to insure that great restraint is exercised before that power, no matter how well intentioned, is used upon the American people."

    Good on her!

    We need people from both sides of the aisle to support marriage equality, and her standing up on this issue is a great thing.

    I agree, YS. She's taking a beating for it, but she's doing the right thing.

    I agree. It will take time, but I think both left and right will be mostly united on this.
    “No men are anywhere, and I’m allowed to go in, because I’m the owner of the pageant and therefore I’m inspecting it,” Trump said... “‘Is everyone OK’? You know, they’re standing there with no clothes. ‘Is everybody OK?’ And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.”

    The REAL question is, if this is a legitimate movement from the right, is it sincere? I highly suspect not.

    Im still trying to figure out whether shes going undercover (into the MSM) on Becks orders, or whether she just has no principles. Pretty sure that liberals called her all sorts of nasty things before this, though. For example in 2009 Salon wrote an article critical of SE Cupps article about how Gay Obamas inauguration was going to be.

    Fox News on inauguration: “Gay America prepares to party” - Salon.com

    Or this one saying she distorted news to make Obama look bad. But I guess now shes on MSNBC and ciriticizing the GOP, all is forgiven.

    She's just pandering to her pals at MSNBC

    Traditional Marriage should be defended and upheld
