Why I Am Not a CPAC Conservative

Many years ago, when I interviewed the great avant-garde saxophonist Charles Gayle, I asked him about bitter criticism he had received for his tendency to preach a pro-life message in the middle of his concerts. “Yeah,” he said with some amusement, “they always call me ‘right-wing.’ Man, I ain’t got no wings!” Neither do I. And as the events of the past week have shown, I am not “right-wing,” either; nor, by the standards of some of the organizers and chief figures of the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), am I a conservative.

Throughout my public career, of course, the mainstream media has insisted that my colleagues and I are indeed “right-wing,” and often even “far right.” Since the “far right” is the label generally given to advocates of authoritarian government and racist discrimination, this label, as common as it is, is a sheer calumny, since we are not only advocates of neither one, but opponents of a system that advances both. If working to defend the principles of the freedom of speech, the freedom of conscience, and the equality of rights of all people before the law is “far right,” then we should all be “far rightists”; but in reality this label is just a tool of the foes of those principles, used to discredit those who defend them.

But I am nonetheless generally considered to be a conservative. It is a label I have used myself, as a way of distinguishing my position from that of the liberals and Leftists who have generally sold out to the jihad, so blind in their hatred of Western civilization and the United States of America that they eagerly cast their lot with the foremost enemies of both. And on a practical level, that identification has been easy: Regnery Publishing, a foremost conservative publishing house, has published six of my books. Many of my books have been endorsed by the late, lamented Conservative Book Club.

Nonetheless, for all that, I am not a CPAC conservative. You want a CPAC conservative? Mitt Romney is a conservative. He is still a key leader of the Republican Party, the party of conservatives, and he is addressing CPAC this weekend. But during his presidential campaign, he called for the creation of a Palestinian state, which I oppose on the grounds that it will be used as a new base for jihad attacks against an Israel weakened by its creation. During his third debate with Barack Obama, he kept agreeing with Obama that the Syrian “rebels” and other forces of “democracy” in the Middle East had to be aided with our tax dollars – despite the fact that jihadis dominate the Syrian rebellion and that an Islamic state even more hostile to the U.S. than the Assad regime is likely to be the result of their victory. He has said that “jihadism” has nothing to do with Islam, which is just an absurd statement.

So if Mitt Romney is a conservative, which he undoubtedly is by the lights of CPAC, then I must not be one. And then there is Grover Norquist, who is even more of a conservative, as far as CPAC is concerned, than Mitt Romney. Norquist’s conservative bona fides are impeccable: as the leader of Americans for Tax Reform, he has a huge base of supporters among fiscal conservatives and the politicians who want their votes. But he also has extensive ties to Islamic supremacists. Rep. Frank Wolf (R-VA) called Norquist out for this on the House floor in October 2011, saying of the anti-tax hero: “Documentation shows that he has deep ties to supporters of Hamas and other terrorist organizations that are sworn enemies of the United States and our ally Israel.” He pointed out that “around the years 2000 and 2001, Mr. Norquist’s firm represented Abdurahman Alamoudi, who was convicted two years later for his role in a terrorist plot and who is presently serving a 23-year sentence in federal prison.”

Despite this, however, Norquist remains such a powerful force among conservatives that he is a feared eminence gris at CPAC. Last year, his protege (and another conservative with extensive ties to Islamic supremacist Muslim Brotherhood groups) Suhail Khan boasted to me that I had been barred from speaking at CPAC because I dared to question the Muslim Brotherhood ties of some of its foremost figures.

And just last week, after my website www.jihadwatch.org overwhelmingly won a vote for CPAC’s “People’s Choice Blog Award,” John Hawkins of Right Wing News (whether on his own initiative, as he now claims, or as the errand boy of shadowy and unnamed higher-ups, as he initially told me over the phone) told me that I was not to speak about the Muslim Brotherhood ties of Norquist and Khan when I received the award. Needless to say, I could not accept this gag order, and will not be receiving the award: the truth is more important than a trophy.

But that was the end of my identification as a conservative, by CPAC’s lights. Grover Norquist is a CPAC conservative. Suhail Khan is a CPAC conservative. John Hawkins is a CPAC conservative. I, on the other hand, am not acceptable either as a speaker or an award recipient at the nation’s foremost conservative gathering. I must not be a conservative.

Yet some are fighting back. The Breitbart group has invited me to be on a panel they’re holding – at CPAC! — called “The Uninvited.” Also featured there will be my colleague Pamela Geller, another human rights and freedom advocate whom mainstream, timid, clueless and compromised conservatives have shunned.

So what ultimately is conservativism? I can only answer that for myself: I am an advocate of freedom: of the freedom of speech, of the equal treatment of all people under the law. Consequently, I am a foe of the global jihad and Islamic supremacism, which are enemies of both those principles. I know that there are many others like me, but neither party seems interested in us right now, and neither does the conservative movement as it is represented at CPAC.

It is time for a new conservative movement, a genuine movement of freedom, one that is not compromised, not beholden, and not corrupted. Are there enough free Americans left to mount such a movement? That I do not know. But I do know that if there aren’t, all is lost, and the denouement will come quickly – more quickly than most people expect.

    IMO, another one who deserves to be outside the conservative tent (in addition to the Mitt Romney's, John McCain's, G. Norquist) is Rand Paul.
    (A similar Leftist/Libertarianism within the Conservative movement is occurring in Canada. Preston Manning is an example. Once upon a time, a conservative, now? Not so much (whether on topics of Free Speech or environmentalism) — it is a sad development.

    Mitt Romney is and never was a conservative, no matter how often and "severely" he claimed to be one. His record, and specifically Romneycare, was his Achilles heel which the Republican establishment refused to recognize, and is why many conservatives stayed home in November. And the fact that CPAC chose him as their guy last year, "severely" calls CPAC's credibility into question despite the fact that that there are quite a few legitimately conservative speakers at this year's event.

      Oh, Romney was a pragmatic, serious problem solver who knew how business ran and how government ran. Perhaps a perfect candidate for where we are.

          Pay attention. The discussion here is why is the GOP falling apart?

          Why did Romney have such a hard time getting the nomination? The reason is idiots like you and people on this board, demanding absurdist, extremist right-wingerism from their candidates. Romney had to swear that he was a "severe conservative" because he wasn't crazy enough for the base.

    • ObamaYoMoma

      I agree with Spencer, when it came to Islam Romney was a loon, but so was all of Romney's competition in the Republican Party field. The truth of the matter is Romney was not a true conservative, but the problem was no one in that Republican Party field of candidates was a true conservative either, and not one of them was more conservative than Romney.

      And no Massachusetts's healthcare program that the Obama campaign successfully christened Romneycare was never anything remotely similar to Obamacare, yet that propaganda nonetheless resonated among low information conservative voters. Romney's two biggest problems were he was a former governor of Taxachusetts, which painted him as a liberal in a lot of low information voter's minds, and he was also a Mormon.

          • EarlyBird

            Because she is insane. Just like the McCarthy witch hunts, now the enemy is not the Reds, but the Muslim terrorists, who have secretly crept into Washington and are moving the levers of power.

            And yes, you and the other bigoted, fanatical idiots on this board believe all Muslims are either terrorists or would-be terrorists.

          • defcon 4

            Um the McCarthy "witch hunts" did uncover evidence of Communist infiltration. But we don't even need a witch hunt now to see evidence of islamofascist infiltration of US government entities across the board.

          • EarlyBird

            It ruined many more innocent lives than it did uncover communists.

        • AnOrdinaryMan

          You're wrong this time. Bachmann understands Islam very well; why do you think the Dhimmicrats made such a strong bid to defeat her in Minnesota?…and they came close to defeating her. Newt also understands the Islamic threat, and he's done a few things to try to reverse the favored immigration status of Muslims.

        • objectivefactsmatter

          "Gingrich and Bachmann are complete and utter loons when it comes to understanding Islam and the threat it poses to the free world."

          If I agreed with you (and I see your point by the way) then I'd have to exclude almost everyone else I know as an utter loon too. However, the critical point is whether or not they are cowed in to submission by CAIR and other tools of the MB and the Saudis and neither one seems to be. Therefore having already taken positions far bolder than any others, I'd say that they are noteworthy for that at least.

          The biggest problem is the liars are still getting away with all of it.

  • george bush sr.

    The message from CPAC is clear. { whites for leadership posts need Not apply }. Just look at the new stars of cpac speakers. They all want amnesty for millions of illegals in america. This country is not going to last much longer without the rule of law.

      Can you possibly do the PR work of Democrats any better than crying about a conservative leadership that isn't white enough?

      • bluffcreek1967

        Nonsense! The previous post was spot on. The GOP has ignored its white majority and it foolishly thinks it will regain its former glory by granting mass amnesty to hordes of third-world Mexican-Indian invaders. They will soon learn how wrong they are, and the Democrats will be laughing and snickering all the while. We need a party that represents the interests of white Americans yet still maintains its conservative values and ideology – unlike the Republican Party which has abandoned both. This thing is turning more racial and nationalistic than most would have ever imagined. Whites are tired of being the blame for so much and having to downplay or ignore our racial heritage and the great things we have done to build this once great nation.

        • SiliconDoc

          I agree in a large sense the republican machine imagines itself gaining minority vote, and the harder it tries the more it loses it.
          They need to stop trying and be law and order instead of steal and love the criminals.
          Of course most of them are huge criminals, so don't expect any changes.
          A few might have actually forced demise of the wall street gamblers to suck their own gambling risk loss and get the USA back on track with Glass Steagal reinstated, but those few no doubt were crushed as soon as they opened their mouths.
          The republicans need to stop defending the racist charge and just admit to it saying who cares, then move on to ACTUALLY ENFORCING RULE OF LAW AND RULE OF ECONOMICS AS IN TOO LARGE TOO FAIL FAILS ANYWAY.
          If they do that they won't be able to stop the masses of citizens formerly known as "minorities" clamoring to their door and defense.
          I do not expect it to ever happen though.
          Fear, and corruption will win bigger as time goes forward, and stupid thug top powers will pretend along like blind friendly scared children while screeching "like me ! like me! I'm no racist, now darkie races please please vote for us! "

        There's no question that the Democratic Party advances the interests of blacks, Mexicans, Asians, Eskimos, sexual perverts, criminals, athiests, Mohammedans, Wiccans, Sasquatch, and everybody else who isn't a normal white Christian. This being the fact, why wouldn't you expect to find a party somewhere representing white people? After all, white people founded America, fought for Independence, authored and ratified the Constitution, etc., etc., etc. No party for you crackers, eh? Why would whites feel abandoned when the one party that isn't dedicated to non-whites' interests fights like hell to support even more mass immigration from the third-world? We need more Detroits and L.A.s? More "Dial 1 for Ingles"? More affirmative-action hiring and non-white set-asides? Another Smithsonian museum for the native Tasmanian contributions to world culture (and their holocaust)? Phooey!

    • Ghostwriter

      And as long as people like bluffcreek1967 and Jacobite spew racist rhetoric and have ideas that could only come from a Klan meeting,conservatives will always be seen as racists. People like this who revel in racist rhetoric will just give ammo to those who caricature conservatives as latent Klan members. This isn't the sort of talk we should be indulging in.

      • bluffcreek1967

        Oh yes, let's not dare talk about whites and their racial interests. Let's instead talk about all the other races and 'minorities' and the things that benefit them – not those evil, self-serving 'racist' white folks! And let's not concern ourselves with whites being racially displaced in their own lands. Let's instead encourage even more third-world immigrants to flood the U.S. and to radically alter our culture and our values. Yeah, that's the ticket.

        It's easy for you to ignore the facts and the arguments presented by myself and others when all you have to do is raise the 'racist' and KKK flag. You need to stop your emotional, knee-jerk reactions and begin to think a little deeper on these issues.

    Robert, when a so-called conservative person steps forward to fully address Barack Hussein Obama's presidential eligibility, instead of dodging the issue, they'll be recognized as such. Until than, they're just another liberal in RINO clothing. IMO, CPAC is a guise, in disguise.

  • EarlyBird

    Conservatism has figured out that as of late it's become represented in the popular mind with Spencer, Gellar and other assorted Muslim obsessed radicals, anti-Obama conspiracy nuts, and neo-Birchers, hence the dissing of Spencer.

    We're seeing evidence that the Republican Party gets it and has finally hit bottom. The aforementioned bigots, hysterics and whackjobs were useful in firing up the base, and like Palin, have been discarded because they are no longer useful.

    As I've written to Reibus, the best possible thing in the world is to verbally b**ch slap the next right wing fanatic who screams that Obama is a Marxist-Islamist enemy of America. It would be an important Sister Souljah moment.

    One of the biggest problems today with the conservative movement is thanks to GWB and Karl Rove most so-called conservatives are complete and utter idiots when it comes to understanding Islam and the threat to our freedom that it poses. Islam is not a so-called "Religion of Peace" as first proposed and promoted by the aforementioned and mainstreamed by our glorious lamestream media. Indeed, what religion other than Islam requires as its first and foremost requirement the total, complete, and unconditional submission to the will of God, i.e., sharia, where apostasy and blasphemy are capital offenses? The answer is, of course, none of them, which also means that Islam is not a religion, at least not according to our civilized Western Christian-Judeo civilization's standards.

    Moreover, the proposition that there are so-called "moderate Muslims" is ridiculous as well. In fact, for a Muslim to be a true "moderate Muslim" that Muslim would also necessarily have to be a blasphemous apostate at the same time, which under the tenets of Islam is a capital offense.

    Therefore, if Islam isn't a religion, then what is it? It's a very aggressive and rabid form of totalitarianism that aims to take over the world.

    • SCREW SOCIALISM

      OYM AKBAR!

    • http://alwaysonwatch3.blogspot.com/ alwaysonwatch

      It is absolutely true that Karl Rove has zero concept regarding the threat from Islam.

      I'm not sure that the same could have been said about John E. Carbaugh (deceased 2006), who trained Karl Rove. Carbaugh was Rove's predecessor.

      Carbaugh, who basically "sponsored" the election of Ronald Reagan, was focused on the threat from Communism until Reagan left office. At that point, Carbaugh focused on Asia — Japan, I think. However, Carbaugh's family recognized the threat of Islam, so I'm guessing that Carbaugh himself did also. By that time, Carbaugh was no longer in the power seat; Rove was — and was whispering into the ear of GWB.

      GWB words shortly after 9/11: "Islam is a religion of peace." Those words have done much to poison the well, particularly the neoconservative well. It is an exercise in futility to present most neoconservatives with the facts about Islam.

      • objectivefactsmatter

        "GWB words shortly after 9/11: "Islam is a religion of peace." Those words have done much to poison the well, particularly the neoconservative well."

        Firstly, I do think Bush remains today a dupe of the Saudis. Having said that. I don't think it's insane or was insane in 2001 or some time after to try to sell that one. Nobody should have taken that literally. We might as well quote Roman senators who claimed that Carthage was an empire of peace in between their ongoing battles to destroy each other. Some times politicians make statements understood to be visionary.

        But he was negligent in simply allowing it to be repeated over and over and failing to respond to facts as they unfolded in reality. He got tough on Arafat finally, but didn't connect the dots. The Saudis never rebuked Arafat, OK George?

        And it also deserves mention that without the leftist uprising around the world as we prepared to go to Iraq, the jihadis may never have had the courage to resist other than insane Taliban. The leftists projected to them that they had allies already even before we rolled out our military. If that hadn't happened, nobody would have cared about Bush uttering those false words. He's not an evangelist when he's POTUS. He should have known better, but really there is so much blame to go around.

        And let's not forget who the original Saudi dupe was. FDR practically gave them a roadmap and the means for infiltrating and corrupting our foreign policy in the region.

        Bush failed to learn and failed to take on the leftists with enough vigor. He believed in political compromise. 0'Bama doesn't. Clinton was just as destructive but could often be reigned in. 0'Bama will kill us all in the name of "transformation" and ironically no matter what happens, nobody will be able to say he failed to transform America.

        • EarlyBird

          In your little world, Iraq would have been a success if it wasn't for those pesky "leftists," who resisted the war. It's their fault that it was such an epic disaster, not the ones who imagined it, pushed for it, and waged it. (Which is why in your magical Iran War, we'll do it "right" though you never really explain how.)

          Just when everybody thought you couldn't get more delusional, you actually write this:

          "Bush failed to learn and failed to take on the leftists with enough vigor. He believed in political compromise."

          In fact, Bush's was notoriously unwilling to care about polls or the national opinion about anything, let alone Democrats in Washington, and Obama notoriously is so willing to compromise and be a "healer" he ends up bargaining with himself.

          He's finally waking up this term to the reality that he needs to simply run over the Republicans as much as possible

        I saw her facebook page. She has lots of pictures of other people on it.

          • Alinsky Hero USA

            Michael Crichton never wrote a book about moon schools with children being r a p ed.

            She was not laying down. And she was screaming for her life with a bright orange coat on.

          Rachel Corrie was a morally confused young lady, and actually too stupid to get out of the way of a tractor.

          And when someone like her decides to get into the middle of conflict where she can expect to be in harm's way, she isn't "murdered," any more than a soldier on a battlefield is "murdered" if he dies in combat. She chose her own death.

          • Alinsky Hero USA

            She was not in a war, she was on a piece of land that was being stolen by radical conservative Jews.

            There is only one word for it, murder.

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

            She was hiding under a wheel barrow in brown slacks and a knit top to blend in. (I'm pretending to be an expert, like you make things up) Then the crowds of protesters distracted the driver so she could sneak closer.

            Why do you pretend to make all this stuff up as if you have any credibility?

  • AnOrdinaryMan

    Robert, don't despair. You are the best. However, a Republican party that didn't fight voter fraud, probably won't stand up to Muslim encroachment as much as they should, either. Unfortunately, it will probably take another cataclysmic event, such as another 9/11, before these rubber-legged RINO's see the error of their ways. And they will see that Robert Spencer was right all along.

    • Jeum

      If they won't demand to see Obama's records – proven false as far as the birth certificate goes – then they don't have the guts to investigate the election fraud. You know he has Intel guarding his secrets – Brennan is the dog at the gate. Why else would he be the new CIA chief?

      • AnOrdinaryMan

        Some people think Brennan is blackmailing Obama. This is because in 2008, one of Brennan's employees(Brennan is the head of a private security/intel firm) hacked into Obama's passport files.

    I am very sympathetic to Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller's fight. I can even imagine, that they decided to "specialize" at one particular field of fight (at the cost of ignoring the much bigger fight).

    Alas, too many "conservative" journalists hope to stay in business at any cost – just by not irritating the treasonous islamic GOP/CPAC/"conservative brass". These journalists compromised their journalistic integrity by maintaining a taboo on the most significant issue ever – the ineligibility and thievery of Obama/Soetoro, hoping that they at least are allowed to expose islam.

    Guess what: Now their owners GOP/CPAC/"conservative brass" do not allow them to expose islam either. That is how dhimmies of ALL evil powers end up.

    As Captain Neil Turner brilliantly wrote
    http://beforeitsnews.com/u-s-politics/2013/03/rhe

    … they must look themselves in the mirror each morning wondering "who (or what) has the power to make me lose my way … and my mind … and my shame … and my conscience?"

    Yes, it IS time for a new conservative movement, a genuine movement of freedom, one that is not compromised, not beholden, and not corrupted. Here is the Platform for this movement: http://www.resonoelusono.com/Platform.htm Is there enough patriots to gather under it?

    • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

      Tea Party.

      • http://www.resonoelusono.com/Platform.htm Alexander Gofen

        Tea Party?! You must be joking! Look at this:
        http://www.wnd.com/2013/03/another-islam-critic-s

        Spencer was told that one of the co-sponsors of the award, TheTeaParty.net, didn't want to allow him to receive the award at CPAC next week unless he promised not to criticize two board members of CPAC’s hosting organization, the American Conservative Union: Grover Norquist and Suhail Khan.

        This is the "roof" of the movement you invest your hopes… Are you happy? Not to mention their ugly resistance to anything revealing ineligibility and thievery of Obama/Soetoro.

        • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

          Yes Tea Party. If you don't like the one that wrote that letter (and I don't agree with that letter either, then start your own local tea party and go after your own liberal political hacks.

          The roof? You define your own roof, and with the tea party not having deep pockets like the RNC you can have more influence since they are more grass roots.

          • http://www.resonoelusono.com/Platform.htm Alexander Gofen

            You wrote: "then start your own local tea party…" In a sense, that was exactly what I thought needed to be done: establishing of a truly patriotic party, which at least recognizes the scope of a disaster America is in. That is why I started with the Platform already in 2006: http://www.resonoelusono.com/Platform.htm even if being a party of one…

    Those who refuse to fight for liberty have already lost it.

  • Porky's2istan

    Conservatives:
    1. The top 5%.
    2. Christian religious fruitcakes / racists / sexists
    3. The upper middle class.

    Every year this nation becomes more tolerant, more PRO-Choice, less racists, and less sexists. The fruitcake base is shrinking.

    Thanks to pro-corporate/anti-union policies, businesses are allowed to move to slave wage countries. Thanks to free trade, those same traitor companies are allowed to ship their slave products back to America (while not paying any taxes), and thanks to BOTH the Democrats and Republicans the border is never secured so any decent jobs left have their wages driven down by millions of labourers who can't complain or form unions. The upper middle class base is virtually gone.

    But hey, the top 5% is doing great and Faux News is always there to blame it all the Democrats/unions/liberals.

    The conservatives have screwed themselves right out of existence. The rich have gotten richer and everyone else has gotten poorer. In the future they won't just say, "Tax the rich." They'll say things like "Kill the rich!" or "Eat the rich!" They can rebrand themselves a million times with, 'trickle down economics', 'a rising tide lifts all boats', or 'don't tax the job creators', but with no upper middle class to hear the propaganda, they are lost and irrelevant.

    Hopefully the Left will wake up to the dangers of islam before it is too late. But right now all they see is the (very real) danger of the Right catering to conservative Christians in order to get them to vote against their own (and everyone else's) economic self interest.

      People in San Francisco had much the same ideas and housing costs have never been the same since.

      Hopefully individual responsibility and liberty to discharge those responsibilities will be in vogue and we can recover from ideas like yours.
