breitbart.jpgThis news just in from GOProud is sure to rankle what GOProud's Chris Barron calls "the gay left." From the conservative gay group:

GOProud, the only national organization of gay conservatives and their allies, announced that conservative media mogul Andrew Breitbart will join the organization’s Advisory Council. 

"Andrew Breitbart is one of the most influential voices in the conservative movement today," said Christopher Barron, Chairman of GOProud’s Board.  "We are thrilled to have him as part of the GOProud team."

The move comes as Equality Matters -- a project of Breitbart's nemesis of sorts, Media Matters for America -- begins ramping up. Kerry Eleveld -- formerly of The Advocate -- was slated to begin as Equality Matters's online editor this week.

The timing seems too much to be chance, but regardless, it seems guaranteed that these two happenings mean that the online left-right LGBT fireworks are going to be moving up to a new level in the new year.

The full release is below the jump.

Conservative Media Mogul Andrew Breitbart to Join GOProud’s Advisory Council

Christopher R. Barron, Chairman of the GOProud Board – “Andrew Breitbart is one of the most influential voices in the conservative movement today.  We are thrilled to have him as part of the GOProud team.”

 

(Washington, D.C.) – Today, GOProud, the only national organization of gay conservatives and their allies, announced that conservative media mogul Andrew Breitbart will join the organization’s Advisory Council.  “Andrew Breitbart is one of the most influential voices in the conservative movement today,” said Christopher Barron, Chairman of GOProud’s Board.  “We are thrilled to have him as part of the GOProud team.” 

"I applaud GOProud's strong, principled conservatism and admire their courage to defy the left's stifling demand for group conformity,” said Andrew Breitbart.  “As a fierce opponent of the cultural Marxism and political correctness that divides Americans into different identity groups, I embrace the American motto E Pluribus Unum as an antidote to the Democratic Party's divide and conquer strategy."  

Breitbart joins Margaret Hoover, Grover Norquist and Tammy Bruce on the GOProud Advisory Council.

Andrew Breitbart is publisher of the news portals Breitbart.com and Breitbart.tv. In January 2009, he launched Big Hollywood, a group blog off of Breitbart.com on Hollywood and culture from a center/right perspective. He gained greater notoriety when his second blog endeavor, Big Government, broke the ACORN prostitution scandal. Breitbart launched Big Journalism in January of 2010 and his newest blog, on foreign policy and national security issues, Big Peace, launched July 4th.

Andrew co-wrote the best-selling attack on celebrity culture, Hollywood, Interrupted and was the co-creator of The Huffington Post. Look for his forthcoming book titled "Righteous Indignation: Excuse Me While I Save the World," which is set for release April 15, 2011.

“Like GOProud, Andrew Breitbart is on the cutting edge of the conservative movement.  No one better exemplifies the growing strength of the new media more than Andrew Breitbart.  Andrew is a fearless, committed advocate for conservative principles and we welcome him to the GOProud leadership team,” concluded Barron.
