Speaking at the white nationalist American Renaissance conference last month in Tennessee, conservative author and onetime CPAC speaker Peter Brimelow argued that instead of promoting unity, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day “has just turned into anti-white indoctrination.” Unless “cultural Marxists” who are behind “political correctness” and “the war on Christmas” are resisted, Brimelow contends, the U.S. will collapse. “Whites have rights,” demanded Brimelow as he advocated for the secession of Texas from a failing U.S....

Last month, the white nationalist group American Renaissance held its annual conference in Tennessee, bringing together fringe racist figures like AmRen’s Jared Taylor, the National Policy Institute’s Richard Spencer, and former Klan attorney Sam Dickson with activists who have ties with more mainstream conservative movements, including former National Review columnist John Derbyshire and onetime CPAC speaker Peter Brimelow. American Renaissance is tied to the leadership of ProEnglish, a regular sponsor of groups such as CPAC. The event included a debate about whether... MORE >

On Saturday morning, right-wing radio host and self-described "total partisan hack" Dana Loesch participated in a CPAC panel on religious liberty, along with the Family Research Council's Tony Perkins and Rep. Randy Neugebauer. During the discussion, Loesch said that if America doesn’t protect the supposed "right" of Christians to discriminate against gays in public accommodations, it will eventually lead to gays being stoned to death in the streets. Loesch claimed that a lot of atheists who listen to her radio program worry that not protecting this "... MORE >

For some reason, organizer's of this year's CPAC conference decided to bestow a First Amendment award upon "Duck Dynasty's" Phil Robertson, apparently for no other reason than because he came under intense criticism for a series of offensive comments that he made about gays and African Americans and for which he refused to apologize. Going well beyond his allotted time, Robertson treated the audience at CPAC to a rambling sermon about America's desperate need for God, which he illustrated in a variety of ways including, at one point, by railing about STDs....

Rick Santorum worked a few jokes into his CPAC speech today, deriding President Obama as the “weatherman-in-chief” for believing in climate science and even making a birther joke, which was met with tepid applause. “The Obama-Clinton foreign policy team” has been “disastrous,” Santorum said. “In fact the president’s popularity is so bad around the world today that I heard this report from a source that the Kenyan government is actually developing proof that Barack Obama was actually born in America.” MORE >
How President Trump Will Defeat ISIS: 'Hit Them So Hard And So Fast That They Wouldn't Know What Happened'

Nothing better exemplifies the state of today's Republican Party than the fact that RNC Chairman Reince Priebus's speech at CPAC today was immediately followed by a speech from reality TV star Donald Trump, who shared his deeply thought-out plans for saving America when he is elected president. In addition to "taking back jobs from China" and "making America rich again," Trump revealed his very serious solution for dealing with ISIS: "Hit them so hard and so fast that they wouldn't know what happened." "Nobody, if I decide to run and win,"... MORE >

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker seems intent on running a presidential campaign completely devoid of substance, refusing to answer straight-forward questions and consistently feigning ignorance. Last night at CPAC, after telling the audience that he is prepared to take on ISIS terrorists because he fought labor-rights protesters, Walker also fielded a question about yesterday’s FCC vote to preserve net neutrality. Although net neutrality has been a hot-button topic for several years, Walker did not reveal whether he favors or opposes it, only explaining that he supports... MORE >

The Media Research Center's Brent Bozell spoke at CPAC this morning, where he let loose with a speech that was little more than an endless stream of right-wing misrepresentations, falsehoods, fabrications, and outright paranoia about how left-wing tyranny and fascism are destroying America and persecuting people like Rush Limbaugh and Phil Robertson. For nearly 20 minutes, Bozell ran through a litany of right-wing outrages and supposed scandals as he declared that "something terrible is happening to our country [as] the radical left now controls most levers of political and cultural...
