Disgust/aversion is part of the definition of homophobe. I've seen your posts, you're are the epitome of a homophobe, and therefore should vote for Gingrich.

That is the hallmark of conservatives, they are defined completely by what they hate. Newt knows that this will actually be a selling point to his base.

In order to be considered a conservative, you must have a deep committment to hating gays, Muslims, immigrants and anyone that doesn't agree 100% with your beliefs.

I'm not sure he's confused. Just looking at these type of threads, it rings pretty true. Based on experience, you seem to be a rare type of Conservative Afo. Most conservatives i've interacted with most certainly are controlled by their hate and ignorance.

So claims a gay, democrat who is a professor and we are supposed to take it as what was really said? We know it wasn't taken out of context or that Mr Professor wasn't irratation Newt? Whatever: HELLO!!!

Isn't Newt the candidate who wants to let Hispanics who are illegal but have been in the country years, paid taxes, worked and stayed off welfare remain here? That doesn't sound to me like a candidate that is trying to turn off Hispanics?

Ouch....
She had a tumor that was not cancerous and all these years later is very much alive and well. Many things might hurt his chances of getting the nomination or winning in November, but his past (30 years ago) isn't going to be an issue....

"The hallmark of conservatives" is hate?

He/she said that conservatives hate "gays, Muslims, and immigrants."

Gays - Poll: Plurality Of Conservative Voters Oppose North Carolina's Anti-Gay Marriage Amendment | ThinkProgress

I hate to link to such a liberal site - LOL, but hopefully you will be more likely to take that source seriously.

Immigrants - Conservatives are against ILLEGAL immigration because we support law and order. We support the poor in America and don't want their jobs to be taken over by those who don't have a right to be here. We don't want to spend lots of money we don't have on services for people who don't have a right to be here. We support LEGAL immigration.

Muslims - Most of us don't hate them either. True, some people are a bit scared of some of their beliefs, but I think that includes many liberals as well.

you certainly must be joking??? If you are, the comments are not very funny, certainly they are not funny to the Log Cabin Republicans and if you are not joking I find it hard to believe anyone who knows anything about politics doesn't know who or what "Log cabin Republicans".
