Things went Technicolor (rainbow?) at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, D.C., today when Ryan Sorba, of the California Young Americans for Freedom, stood in front of a microphone and trashed CPAC for having invited GOProud, a Republican lesbian and gay group, to the conference. (The video is below. Here is a photo of Sorba, who, a reader suggests in the comment section, has a "gay face." I'm not sure I disagree.)
As Sorba ranted, the audience booed and howled. Sorba spread his arms wide. "Bring it," he said. "Bring it. I love it. I love it. I love it."
The howlers included gay Repubs and members of Young Americans for Liberty, a conservative student and youth group. Sorba dissed them by saying that "the lesbians at Smith College protest better than you do," and called out YAL executive director Jeff Frazee: "YAL is my enemy. Jeff Frazee, guess what, you just made an enemy out of me, buddy. Yeah, you."
It's nice to see young Republicans preparing for a future in Congress and/or the White House by hewing to key Republican principles: advocating for limited government, ensuring individual liberty, supporting free markets, and eating their own.
Bring it (x2). I love it (x3).
