CPAC Turns Away Pamela Geller, Robert Spencer and AFDI
The height of Spencer and Geller’s influence was in the summer of 2010 when they succeeded, along with their cohorts, in making Islam part of the Conservative movement’s “culture wars,” most notably with the so-called “Ground Zero Mosque.”
Fast forward to the present and even CPAC is turning Geller and co. away–according to Breitbart.com.
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.
The Breitbart article casts Geller in a positive light, but what do you expect from one of the leading portals of the Tea Party. It seems the Conservative movement still has a long way to go to reconcile with the present reality of the USA.
