Fox Goes Pink
While CNN celebrates “gay pride” with its pro-homosexual special program “Gary and Tony Have a Baby,” hosted by Soledad O’Brien, high-profile conservatives, two Fox News personalities, Tucker Carlson and Margaret Hoover, have joined in the national effort to promote the cause of “alternative lifestyles.”
Mr. Carlson, who edits The Daily Caller – – a conservative newsletter, is the scheduled keynote dinner speaker at a September meeting of the Log Cabin Republicans, a group of militant homosexuals who have filed suit against the Pentagon’s policy of excluding open and active homosexuals from military service.
He is also a fellow of the Cato Institute, which supports gay rights and same-sex marriages.
Ms. Hoover serves on the advisory council of GOProud, a so-called “gay conservative” group whose chairman, Christopher R. Barron, has a history of working for “centrist Republicans.”
She has appeared on “The O’Reilly Factor” FNC program to promote President Obama’s proposed repeal of the Pentagon’s homosexual exclusion policy and has written an article for the FOXNews.com website expressing her belief that there is a right to gay marriage in the U.S. Constitution.
Ms. Hoover sits on the board of the American Foundation for Equal Rights, an organization supported by Hollywood liberals committed to gay marriage and the “gay rights struggle.”
Tammy Bruce, another Fox News Channel political contributor, serves the openly gay chair of the GOProud advisory council and promotes the Independent Gay Forum, a network of so-called gay conservatives and libertarians.
GOProud is the same group whose inclusion in the Conservative Political Action Conference by David Keene of the American Conservative Union outraged many conservatives who hold a philosophy of limited government and support for traditional values.
Other leading Republican conservatives support GOProud, including Grover Norquist, who served as the Chairman of the National Rifle Association.
Mr. Norquist, the head of Americans for Tax Reform, has been a leading proponent of Muslim organizations in the United States, including the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).
The gay rights movement was founded in the U.S. by Communist Harry Hay and has been traditionally associated with liberal and left-wing organizations, as well as the national Democratic Party. Hay, a self-described “Radical Fairy,” promoted pedophilia and participated in meetings of the North American Man-Boy Love Association.
American Conservatives have presented themselves as upholders of the Judeo-Christian tradition which opposed homosexuality as a perversion of natural law.
