Gay Groups Silent on Palin, Angle’s Acceptance: Damned if You Do, Damned if You Don’t

Both Sarah Palin (Happy Birthday today, Sarah) and former U.S. Senate candidate from Nevada, Sharron Angle, expressed their approval of the inclusion of conservative gays in conservative politics, but the Human Rights Campaign, a Democrat tool, along

Sharron Angle - Sarah Palin

with other far-lefty gay groups are refusing to comment. Standing up for the rights of Republicans, as human beings and a child of God, is not righteous in the view of Liberalism. “Human Rights Campaign?” That would be a campaign for the Democrat masses, but never for the Republican few. Shameful. Damed if you do, damed if you don’t. Thing is, we no longer care. We are no longer compelled to prove our love for our fellow man (no pun intended).

Daily Caller:

On Wednesday, Palin reiterated her support for CPAC’s inclusion of “different, diverse groups … involved in political discourse.”…told the Huffington Post that she is “always in favor of freedom” and encourages “discussion.”

[Angle] “We need to be very careful when we get to talk about our opinions and be inclusive.”

The HRC — whose stated goal is to ”achieve lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) equality” — appears to be holding a second Day of Silence.

“We have no comment on this matter,” HRC Deputy Press Secretary Paul Guequierre told The Daily Caller when asked for a comment regarding Palin and Angle’s recent support of GOProud.

Other prominent nationwide gay-rights organizations, like the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD), did not respond to numerous inquires from TheDC regarding Palin and Angle’s comments.

Gay group, GOProud, which has caused a seething rift at CPAC this year, issued this comment:

“They [Human Rights Campaign] spend days publicly attacking something [Sarah Palin’s] teenage daughter said on Facebook — on Facebook; but they can’t bring themselves to thank Gov. Palin for having the courage to stand up for gay people,” said Barron. “It speaks volumes about what a joke that entire organization is.”


  • As a libertarian I am glad to hear Palin’s comments on inclusivity. That doesn’t mean “approval,” which is a difficult concept for many people to accept. Liberals often want everyone to “like” everyone else, and that’s just not possible.
