Glenn Reynolds Shocked - Shocked! - to Find Homophobia in the GOP

Instapundit fails right wing purity test
Wingnuts • Views: 27,608

Apparently, “Instapundit” Glenn Reynolds never got the memo about Republicans and gay rights; he seems totally gobsmacked that he was disinvited to speak at a Utah Republican Party dinner because he doesn’t hate gay people enough.

And on top of that, he was doing it for nothing.

I love how Reynolds and Roger L. Simon pretend they’re shocked — shocked — to find homophobia in the Republican Party. Who knew?

Meanwhile, over at Michelle Malkin’s fake news site Twitchy, the article seems sympathetic to Reynolds, but most of the commenters are assuredly not, oddly enough. Some examples of the “conservative values” on display:

So let’s abandon our values and make ourselves barely different than the Democrats. Sorry we don’t pull the “Personally opposed to x, but” BS. Yes we should reach out to minorities more, but changing our values? No. That’s what the socialists want us to do, but we have to stay strong.

[…]

A person suffering from homosexuality has the same hurdles as anyone else who wishes to marry. They must find a willing member of the opposite sex. Should lonely computer geeks demand that masturbation be redefined as marriage so they, too can derive the legal benefits of marriage?

What’s your position on narcissists marrying themselves?

If you oppose it, you’re a hypocrite. If you support it, you are supporting the devaluation and dissolution of the concept of marriage until it can mean anything, and therefore means nothing, which is the “gay agenda”.

[…]

You cannot explain the biological purpose of homosexual attraction.
You cannot explain away the simple fact that sexual and romantic attraction exist for the purpose of procreation, just as hunger exists for the purpose of nourishment.

A sane, rational, thinking brain cannot possibly consider homosexuality as anything other than a mental/emotional disorder.

[…]

We have to stand up for traditional marriage guys. I agree with the move.

[…]

Seriously Correct! one of the reasons the GOP is so fscked up is because they let sexual deviants (ie homosexuals) in to start with. You want to clean up the party, make that damn tent smaller and the righteous will come back.

[…]

The DemocRATS won with removing God from their platform…I don’t think that staying true to our conservative position against “gay” marriage and abortion is a bad thing. Its what conservatives hold as a convictions. Something Democrats know nothing of. I would rather be firm in my convictions and lose every election, than to compromise my values to win. I think that is called prostitution, is it not??

[…]

letting filth in to the party just to garner more votes is just as bad as prostitution no matter how you try to excuse it.

[…]

that & they’re abnormal as well.

[…]

The reason the GOP is sinking is because they are wallowing in the filth of the unrighteous. Maybe if they would clean themselves back up the righteous might be willing to return to their party.

[…]

I’m not saying sexual deviants should be legislated to convert to Christianity. I’m saying their deviant lifestyle choices shouldn’t earn them any extra rights. If I decide to drive a nail throuh my hand every saturday, should I get extra priviledged status in legislation? No, because it is a STUPID thing to do. If I decided to dress like a baby as a lifestyle should I get a disablity check? NO, because it is a stupid lifestyle choice!! people who chose sexually deviant lifestyles do not deserve ANY extra legislative consideration EVER!!

[…]

So very typical of you lefturd scumbags, you decide since I think sexual deviancy is wrong so I must be a hater. My disgust at a depraved lifestyle choices must have nothing to do with how filthy and perverted they are, I’m just a bigot, right? you must be a member of the demoncrapic party, abort any babies recently, collect your gub’mint stipend last week?

[…]

Of course it is deviant. Anyone with two eyes and common sense can see that. If not just check the CDC stats of all the illness homo-sex will give a person.

[…]

As soon as you or Glenn can explain to me what gay rights are, you might make me give a damn.

[…]

Exactly, sexual deviants have the same rights as everyone else. What they want now is justification for their perversions.

[…]

People of the same sex can’t be married it is an absurdity. Its like cats campaigning for the right to be dogs

[…]

“Homosexual rights” leads to indoctrination of children. That is a fact. We don’t need to teach small children that disease inducing perversion is normal. It’s a lie. Utah GOP group was right

UPDATE at 1/7/13 3:02:57 pm

The Utah Republican Party says they never invited Glenn Reynolds to speak in the first place:
