More On the CPAC Gay-Basher

Media Matters has the full video of Ryan Sorba's rant at CPAC Friday night. He's the young man who used his two minutes to address the thousands of people gathered in DC to bash conference organizers for letting a gay conservative group staff a table in the exhibit hall. Turns out this wasn't the first time Sorba has riled up a crowd with his views on gay civil rights. The representative of the California Young Americans for Freedom spends his time going around to college campuses lecturing on the "Born Gay Hoax." Two years ago, his speech at Smith College was shut down by protesters, which explains why he dismissed hecklers at CPAC by saying, "the lesbians at Smith College protest better than you!" Apparently CPAC organizers consider his presence another example of their inclusiveness.
