CPAC, if you don’t know, is the increasingly irrelevant gathering of so-called leaders of the conservative movement, but with each passing year they have become more and more unwelcoming to anyone not of their class—the “ruling class” wannabees.
Grover and gang have finally, after five years of trying, succeeded in completely blocking Pamela Geller’s message to CPAC attendees. She wrote about it yesterday, here.
I won’t be at CPAC this year. Every year AFDI organizes a must-see event, addressing issues that the Grover Norquist/Suhail Khan cabal refuse to address (jihad, sharia, the war on freedom in the West).
This year, I applied to speak and was ignored. I tried to get a room for an AFDI event, “The War on Free Speech,” and was ignored. So, for the first time in five years, I won’t be at CPAC. Last year Suhail Khan bragged out loud that he (and his other operatives) had successfully kept Robert Spencer and me from being invited to speak. He went so far as to warn people not to attend our events or read our books.
In several articles I took on Grover Norquist and his powerful influence over CPAC, most notably here and here. As soon as I published my Newsmax column concerning his perfidious influence at CPAC, my Newsmax column was taken down and my name and picture were removed from the Newsmax page….. it was two slots away from Grover’s. My weekly column never appeared at Newsmax again. It was axed.
There is much more (including lots of links), read it all.
Just a reminder that at CPAC 2011, Norquist told Think Progress that Islamic law was completely compatible with the US Constitution. And, if you disagree, he will call you an “Islamophobe.”
See Geller’s speech at MD CAN in Annapolis on January 12th here.
