Big Gov Compares "Gay-conservatives" To "Islamist-conservatives"

Blog ››› ››› MEDIA MATTERS STAFF

A February 9 post on the right-wing blog Big Government discussed several conservative groups' boycott of this year's Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) following CPAC's inclusion of the conservative gay group GOProud at its annual conference. The post appeared to equate Gay-conservatives" with "Islamist-conservatives," by asking, "If one is ok with Gay-conservatives then what about Islamist-conservatives, or Muslims who happen to be conservative but are not radical Islamists?" Andrew Breitbart, who is the publisher of Big Government, was recently named to GOProud's board. From the post:

Now, there are fair questions being asked regarding whether the gay inclusion amounts to compromising values. Certainly tolerance at some point implies endorsement. If one is ok with Gay-conservatives then what about Islamist-conservatives, or Muslims who happen to be conservative but are not radical Islamists? I think Reagan would have an answer for that too.
