Remember those T-shirts that were all the rage a few years ago—my teenagers had them—the NO FEAR shirts. I don’t remember exactly what they said, just that some were black with the bold words “No Fear” emblazoned on them. That is what I think of when I read articles like this one written by Pamela Geller of Atlas Shrugs fame.
Here she is today at American Thinker with her piece on the premiere gathering of “sissies’ (oops! Republicans) that opens in Washington, DC tomorrow. (Hat tip: Janet)
For the fourth year in a row, I am doing what the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) refuses to do: covering the central issues of our time, the issues that ought to be center-stage, prime time at CPAC.
Once again, CPAC is avoiding and ignoring the greatest national security threat to our country: jihad. Year in, year out, the puppetmasters, Grover Norquist and Suhail Khan, have managed to keep jihad and sharia off the CPAC schedule. The American Conservative Union, the political right’s largest and most influential grassroots umbrella organization — and sponsor of the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) — has abandoned conservative principles and morphed into some fleshy, ambiguous, compromised political machine doling out money and favors for cronies, when it is doing anything at all.
This is why I organize an event every year at CPAC to educate the upwards of twelve thousand conservatives who come to D.C. to get activated. Do you think that they know that CPAC has been utterly corrupted by the likes of Grover Norquist, the most powerful Muslim Brotherhood-linked influence-peddler in the country? Hardly. Has it been easy going up against the most corrupt and powerful conservative in America? Hardly. I lost my Newsmax column because of it, as I have repeatedly called for an insurgency at CPAC.
Read on about Pamela’s previous programs at CPAC. I was fortunate to be there for Geert Wilders. This year’s program is a must-attend—it’s about what the US Justice Department is doing to help advance sharia law in America. Geller continues:
And this year is shaping up no differently. Our event this year is generating plenty of heat. My organization, AFDI/SIOA, has put together the most critical and essential event at CPAC: “Islamic Law in America: How Obama’s Department of Justice is Selling us Out.” Our keynote speaker, J. Christian Adams, has been scheduled to speak at our event for months. Yet CPAC (under the leadership of Al Cardenas) scheduled Adams to speak at another event at the exact same time. It is on their agenda: Adams at both places at the same time. Further, our co-sponsor, the Tea Party, is under increasing pressure to cancel our “controversial” event.
The event is Friday afternoon look for it. And, read Adams’ book, it is a shocker. Also, see Geller’s article about the FOIA document dump she received from the Justice Department recently. I wrote about it here.
New readers might also wish to visit this post I wrote last year where Norquist gave an interview to Soros’ Think Progress and said Shariah law is compatible with the US Constitution. And, check out David Horowitz speech at the 2011 event.
To add to your fun at CPAC 2012, the word is that Occupy Wall Street will try to Occupy CPAC.
