Headdesk: Accuracy in Media writer claims, 'There's no such thing as a gay conservative'

The American Conservative Union got off to a rocky start with this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference when word got out that GOProud would again be excluded from participation. Conservatives rallied behind GOProud, while a tone-deaf ACU extended invitations to “leading conservative voice” Chris Hayes of MSNBC and “hugely popular” Donald Trump.

While CPAC’s stumble angered conservatives, the reaction pales to that over a piece posted to Accuracy in Media’s website March 6. While “denier” has become a bit of a political cliché, conservatives were stunned to read that “There is no such thing as a ‘gay conservative,’ unless the term ‘conservative’ has lost all meaning.” Instead, Cliff Kincaid wrote, CPAC “should be sponsoring a panel on the dangers of the homosexual movement and why some of its members seem prone to violence, terror, and treason,” citing WikiLeaks tool Bradley Manning and Family Research Council shooter Floyd Corkins as examples of a “homosexual movement” trying to infiltrate conservatism.

The piece goes on (and on), but with CPAC already inclined to shoot itself in the foot, few thought that Accuracy in Media needed to be handing out more ammunition.

The backlash caused by the piece motivated Accuracy in Media Chairman Don Irvine to issue a statement:

Like many organizations, AIM has a staff that represents more than one viewpoint on various issues. We allow our people to express themselves as they like. We all share the same general conservative philosophy, but not necessarily on every specific issue. Cliff Kincaid is a longtime, valuable part of the AIM team. My personal view on this is irrelevant. That being said, Accuracy in Media does not agree with his assertion that it is impossible to be both gay and conservative.

That’s good news for the gay conservatives out there who now can rest assured knowing they exist.

Look out: CPAC has been infiltrated. What terror lies in store?
