CPAC Turns Away Pamela Geller
Big Government ^ | March 1, 2013 | Breitbart News

Posted on 03/02/2013 1:23:08 AM PST by Bratch

For the last four years, Pamela Geller of AtlasShrugs.com and the American Freedom Defense Initiative have held events at CPAC featuring guests she invites to discuss the influence of Islamism on America. But this year, the American Conservative Union (ACU) has no room for Geller or her message.

[...]

In years past, the events were standing room only thanks to their popularity, but that apparently was not enough to counter pressure brought to bear from somewhere to exclude Geller’s message.

CPAC was founded to give conservatives a platform and a network to fight the RINO Establishment.

We an organization goes bad, take it over or start over.

It's time to dump CPAC and build a new platform.

OK. I just remember in early 2009 when every major Republican organization with a conference advertised a Palin appearance (without confirming with her) in order to boost their own attendance, and then beat her up when she didn’t’ show (because of the damn anklebiters in Alaska).

CPAC is probably having second thoughts on Ben Carson, too. Too ‘radical’ for them?

They have sprinkled a few conservatives for decoration, so that people like you can say "see, see, there are conservatives speaking".

There is a whole bunch of those who want to remake conservatism and the republican party.

The Islamic Free market Institute is a co-sponsor of CPAC, and the Muslim Public Affairs Council, who blamed Israel for 9/11, is a prized participant. Oh, and they also are in bed with the ACLU. Anyone who thinks that at this point CPAC has anything to do with American conservatism is a sucker. They sold out some time ago.

Not one of them will address the communist-Islamist alliance that put a foreign enemy combatant in our White House - who is systematically destroying this country’s foundations, abandoning our allies, and lifting up our enemies. They are guard dogs that rolled over and fell asleep while the enemy ransacked the whole house.

Right now there is nobody who gets much but a “meh” from me. Nobody in the public eye has the courage to be real with the country about what is happening. Some are braver than others but none will address the elephant in the room.

If so, that would explain a lot.

If I were Sarah Palin I think I’d stay away from this group.

the most prestigious Islamic University in our world.

Interesting but hardly impressive, since his major achievement was memorizing the Koran. This guy is a self promoting religious nut. I don't blame a serious person like Geller for not wanting him creating distractions and diluting the message.

Before we condemn CPAC, let’s get some more facts. Neither CPAC nor Geller is quoted in the linked article. There is nothing. Incredibly bad journalism.

15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.

They have one, and a good portion of the other...that is why it is becoming increasing difficult to ascertain any difference between Democrat and Republican.

The ACU owns and operates CPAC. Its board of directors includes Suhail Kahn, who Is engaged in a litany of Muslim based front groups and Grover Norquist, who is an unabashed supporter of Islam. That’s all I need to know about why CPAC shut Pam Geller out.

The genesis of Islam,
The demented ramblings of an illiterate memory impaired old man. His recounting of bible stories heard as a young child comprise a small part of the Koran. The remainder are the words of one megalomaniac after another seeking to enhance their power, their prestige and their wealth. The Koran and it's teachings tend to attract the fundamentalist radical types. It's leaders are self promoted to cleric. Islam is run much the same as organized crime. Mob bosses are self promoted and failure to do what you are told will get you killed. In Islam failing to be a proper believer will get you stoned to death.

This, Islam, what ever you call it, has no place in this nation. It is inimical to everything this nation propounds.

US politics are infected with Islamists and their sycophants. I have no doubt that Grover Norquist was the prime mover behind stopping Ms. Geller's addresses to CPAC. Daniel Pipes had the goods on Norquist back in 2005:

It does appear that he is indeed from his actions and deeds.

Certainly some squish on that list (McConnell? Carly Fiorina? Noot? REALLY?) but on the whole, a pretty good one.

The one that really bugs me, though, is Romney. He’s literally yesterday’s news and his candidacy split the conservative movement right down the middle. He did far more harm than good to the conservative cause and really shouldn’t have been invited.

someone opines that Grover Norquist may have had something to do with the blacklist.

Karl Rove, is that your latest brilliant strategy — antisemitism and pro-Islam? Grover Norquist’s your man. He's a real Jew hater with Islamic connections. Conservatives they are NOT.
