There’s been a lot of buzz in Washington about a planned boycott of the upcoming Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) by a handful of socially conservative groups. The groups oppose CPAC organizers’ decision to allow GOProud, a conservative group that advocates gay rights, to participate.

On Fox News Channel’s Thursday broadcast of “Red Eye,” host Greg Gutfeld asked Fox News legal analyst Kimberly Guilfoyle what CPAC’s next move should be.

“What should CPAC do about these conservative moralists who just can’t believe gays have a right to be there?” Gutfeld asked.

Guilfoyle, the former wife of San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom, told CPAC to ignore these groups and if they were seriously about the discussion, they would show up and be heard.

“Pretend that they never even made a statement about it,” Guilfoyle said. “Honestly I think if they address it, they’re giving some kind of validity to their position. I think they’re being divisive. It’s not helpful.  They should participate if they want their voices to be heard and actually show up.”
