    This is from somebody who just had a spat with CPAC about not going to be their keynote speaker. The operative word here is "others." She's practically labeling the unnamed group liberal. icon_lol.gif

    http://www.breitbart.tv/sarah-palin-throws-support-behind-goproud-participation-at-cpac/“Well, I’ve never attended a CPAC conference ever so I was a little taken aback this go around when I couldn’t make it to this one either and then there was a speculation well I either agree or disagree with some of the groups or issues that CPAC is discussing. It really is a matter of time for me. But when it comes to and David, perhaps what it is that you’re suggesting in the question is should the GOP, should conservatives not reach out to others, not participate in events or forums that perhaps are rising within those forums are issues that maybe we don’t personally agree with? And I say no, it’s like you being on a panel shoot, with a bunch of the liberal folks whom you have been on and you provide good information and balance, and you allow for healthy debate, which is needed in order for people to gather information and make up their own minds about issues. I look at participation in an event like CPAC or any other event, along, or kind of in that same vein as the more information that people have the better.”

    Very telling, q1w2e3!

    Sarah Palin labels GOProud as others, simply because they're gay. What happened to looking deeper beneath the surface and seeing them solely as conservatives who just happen to be gay.

    This reminds me of when she retweeted that one comment by that conservative lesbian after the repeal of DADT. Palin didn't personally address and support the repeal, she just retweeted someone else's opinion of a gay right's issue.

    I see McCain taught her well. Swing which ever way the wind blows.

    I don't know, she could be talking about anybody here with her word "others." Maybe she was talking about a polygamist group, or a far-right white supremacist hate group. icon_lol.gif

    I think when she says "The Others" she is referring to the people in her house who are trying to scare her and her children, not knowing all along that she is the one who's dead.

    If the GOProud group had any sense they sure cut loose of any ties to this dingbat Palin, She'll end up looking even dumber than she now does before its over and anyone connected to her will look just a dumb. LOL

    Oh wishful thinking icon_sad.gif I thought the thread was "Palin throws herself under a bus"

    I certainly wish she had more openly and aggressively supported GOProud participating in CPAC rather than just lumping them into "other" groups. That said, the essence of what she said was a positive thing. Certainly a far cry from complete bigoted holier than thou jerks like Jim DeMitt.

    That didn't seem much like support as much as saying that we should be tolerant even if we don't like or agree with someone. And that's the way it should be. Just because I may not like someone because of how they are doesn't mean I'm going to vote to take away their rights.

    We shouldn't need to have people accept or like anything or anyone, just simply tolerate it.
