On Friday’s episode of “The Janet Mefferd Show,” Matt Barber was interviewed to give his thoughts on “the GOP and their buckling stance on homosexuality.” Barber was, not surprisingly, highly critical of any effort by the Republican Party to try to appear less openly-hostile to gays and blasted the party for even letting groups like GOProud and the Log Cabin Republicans or pro-gay donors have a seat at the table.
Such groups were, Barber asserted, really just gay activists in disguise who are intent destroying the Republican Party from within. As such, they and like-minded donors have “poisoned” the GOP and need to be “rooted out” because the “most important election in history” is approaching and the party cannot risk alienating its Chick-fil-A-loving, anti-gay base at a time like this:
You know, that’s all we need is the Republican Party looking more and more like the Democratic Party. What the Log Cabin Republicans are doing here – and let’s be very clear here; groups like GOProud and the Log Cabin Republicans who call themselves Republican or conservative, they’re just a bunch of radical homosexual activists in conservative or Republican clothing. These guys know exactly what they’re doing, they’re trying to undermine the Republican Party from within I believe intentionally, I believe it’s covert and they know what they’re doing.
So this does not bode well, the fact that the Republican Party is even entertaining these radical activists here and they’re looking at essentially spending a dollar to save a dime – I mean, imagine alienating the entire base of the Republican Party in order to appease a few radical homosexual activists; it’s counter-intuitive, it’s thick-headed, and this is the most important election, I think, in history that we have coming up right now, and now is not the time for the GOP to be alienating the base of the party.
They are not conservatives. They are liberal Republicans more suited to the Democratic Party but fiscally conservative, oftentimes, and so they have essentially poisoned, in large degree, the Republican Party and, I think, need to be rooted out.
You know, we saw what the base of the Republican Party believes with the overwhelming outpouring for Chick-fil-A, for natural marriage, for traditional values and for the Republican Party to even entertain the idea because a few of these donors have deep pockets of running afoul of these traditional values that the Republican Party platform has been based on for years, it’s just a stupid idea.
