CPAC and Occupy…. Anything that makes Andrew Breitbart go this fucking nuts, has to be good

    The big Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) just wrapped up in DC. After a few days of speeches, in which each of the Republican presidential candidates tried to prove that he, and not his rivals, was the rightful heir to the sainted Reagan mantle, Romney end up on top, with 38 percent of the straw poll vote. He was followed by Rick Santorum, who convinced 31 percent of the 3,408 hard-core Republican party insiders on hand to vote for him, and Ron Paul, who took 15 percent. The swollen, red faced, baby that is Newt Gingrich, who apparently doesn’t have many friends within the Republican inner circle, as evidenced by that statement that Bob Dole issued a few days ago, brought up the rear with 12 percent.

    Here, with a bit of the context, is a clip from the Christian Science Monitor:

    …Romney won with the highest percentage since 2000, when George W. Bush got 42 percent of the vote. Also to his apparent benefit, Romney won at a time when the activists voting said that the candidates’ position on conservative issues – not the “electability” favored by mainstream Republicans – held the most importance for them…

    The CPAC straw poll generates no convention delegates, and it represents a tiny slice of likely voters. But it does carry symbolic value – especially, perhaps, for Romney as he tries to keep his status as front-runner…

    But that’s not why I’m writing about CPAC today. I’m writing because I just happen to stumble across some video shot outside of CPAC of Andrew Breitbart, the one-man right wing smear machine that we have to thank for the likes of “journalists” like James O’Keefe, losing his shit at the sight of about 150 Occupy protesters. The protesters were being kept away from the hotel by private security forces, but apparently they were still too close for Breitbart’s liking. He launched into a visceral attack, accusing them of being, among other things, filthy rapists. (It reminded me of when Newt, channeling Republican party of the 70′s, told the Occupy protesters not too long ago to take baths and get jobs.)

    Here’s some of what Breitbart had to say:

    “Behave yourself! You’re freaks! You’re freaks and animals! Stop raping the people! You freaks! Stop raping the people!”

    Here’s the video. If you watch to the end, you’ll hear a female Occupy protester say to a friend, somewhat befuddled by the allegation, “I’ve never raped anyone in my life.”

    Anyway, I just thought that I’d post that here as a reminder to everyone that the Occupy movement is still doing good work, and keeping the pressure on the evil sons-of-bitches that are gaming the system for their own personal gain… In short, anything that can illicit a response like this from Breitbart, in my opinion, has to be a good thing.

    And, here, for those of you who want a little more CPAC news, are a few more links. (Of the two, I’d suggest the latter, which is list of all of the “men seeking men” posts that ran on Craigslist in DC, during CPAC.)

        From the clip, Breitbart appears to be drunk, high, mentally unstable — or some combination of the three. Nice to know so many conservatives consider him such a hero in their battle against the “liberal media.”

        Re: the Craigslist “MSM” ads related to CPAC … one can only imagine the depths of self-loathing these guys must have for themselves to be able to actively participate in such a stridently “family values” (i.e. homophobic) organization by day — while simultaneously chasing each other around the hotel seeking semi-secret sexual rendezvous, after-hours.

        This would actually be pretty amusing … if such behavior didn’t so obviously harken back to the McCarthy Era, when well-known closet-cases like J. Edgar Hoover held themselves up as paragons of “conservative” values … while, at the same time, using fear of exposure as a powerful weapon to terrorize a generation of innocent gay men and women into submission.

        Is he referring to alleged rapes that occurred at Occupy Wallstreet events (I don’t know the amount of such crimes or the outcomes of investigations)? Or is he comparing taxation to rape? I’m thinking the former, which connects to the “animals” label. If so, does that really pass for an effective response to political protest? Sweep them under the rug as “rapists” and thereby dismiss them? How many buy into those characterizations?

        I don’t know if you see what the top comments are — the most respected notes in the youtube community — but there are some pretty awful ones. such gems as “anti-racist is just a code word for anti-white.” and “Occupy WS and the KKK were both created as a extension of the Democratic Party. KKK to stop black Republicans voting in the South so the Democrats could control the South and OWS to trash freedom so people need to depend on the government so they vote Democrat.”

        This is a bit of a tangent, but I’ll mention it anyway: about three years ago, me and the family made a road trip to D.C. during winter break, about this time of the year. Via hotels.com or some such thing, we ended up picking out one of the big conference hotels near Adams-Morgan and over by the zoo metro stop– a combination of location and a good price. Anyway, we checked in and then went out and did touristy stuff, and then realized the next day we were staying in the CPAC hotel.

        It was strange. The next day, I went down to the lobby to get decent wifi and to sightsee all the freaky right winger types. Among others, I saw Joe the Plumber wandering around. It was quite the circus.

        Anyway, all of this is to say it doen’t exactly surprise me that this was the scene of this Breitbart video. Not that I agree with him of course– he’s an idiot– but I can imagine a lot of the ways the circumstances of the location figured into it all.

        How does one suck cock discretely? Do they wear camouflage?

        One of the links posted here leads to story where someone says that Breitbart, leapt out of a bush, before starting this tirade. What if it wasn’t a bush at all, but a clever bit of cock sucking camouflage?

        Speaking of male-on-male sex for hire, I wonder how much money Jeff Gannon makes during CPAC.

        Santorum alleges that Romney fixed the CPAC straw poll by buying tickets for a number of his supporters.

        From Right Wing Watch:

        Today at the Conservative Political Action Conference, the group ProEnglish organized the panel, “The Failure of Multiculturalism: How the pursuit of diversity is weakening the American identity,” and host Robert Vandervoort thanked CPAC for hosting the panel despite the work of “leftist thugs” who are trying to “shut down freedom of speech and freedom of assembly.” Vandervoort is a former leader of the White Nationalist group Chicagoland Friends of the American Renaissance, a racist magazine published by fellow White Nationalist Jared Taylor. Presumably, Vandervoort was referring to the efforts of the Institute for Research & Education on Human Rights, which issued an alert on his background, and People For the American Way, which called on Republican leaders attending CPAC to denounce another panelist, Peter Brimelow, founder and head of the White Nationalist hate website VDARE.

        In 2009, Brimelow reflected on CPAC after “Obama’s racial-socialist coup” and expressed his fear that the U.S. is doomed to face a “minority occupation government.” He called on the Republican Party to start focusing on becoming the party of white voters by attacking “ethnic lobbies,” affirmative action, bilingual education and “taxpayer subsidies to illegal aliens.”

        Prior to Brimelow’s talk, Vandervoort delivered a rambling speech from Serge Trifkovic (who wasn’t able to attend) that focused on how the “cult of non-white, non-male, non-heterosexual victimhood” and “multiculturalist indoctrination” is ruining the West. “The native Western majorities will melt away,” Trifkovic’s speech concluded, “Europeans and our trans-Atlantic cousins are literally endangered species. The facilitators of our destruction must be neutralized if we are to survive.” Afterwards, Rosalie Porter bemoaned the Civil Rights Act and the Voting Rights Act for giving too much political influence to minorities.

        Brimelow stayed on message and warned that multiculturalism and bilingualism were “diseases” that could wreck American society as they empower minorities and suppress traditional American (read: white) groups. He claimed that Canada, which is officially bilingual, was a good example of how bilingualism becomes a tool of elites to help minorities (Quebecers) at the expense of the majority, and went on to call multiculturalism and bilingualism a “ferocious attack on the working class.”

        But the surprise guest of the panel was the fiercely anti-immigrant Rep. Steve King (R-IA) who came to discuss his bill to make English the official language of the U.S.

        During a panel discussion, Brimelow said that the Democratic Party has “given up on the white working class” and is using immigration to “elect a new polity,” i.e. increase the number of ethnic minorities. Before he could turn to King, the congressman giddily told Brimelow, “I read your books!” King went on to say that Brimelow “eloquently wrote about the balkanization of America.”

        Following the panel, King dismissed the Southern Poverty Law Center’s classification of VDARE as a hate group in an interview with BuzzFeed, saying, “I wouldn’t take them seriously.”

        With the blessing of a leading Republican congressman, it looks like Brimelow’s dream of having a conservative movement which focuses on challenging cultural diversity may finally be coming to fruition.

        Apparently Breitbart was in Michigan a few days ago, and took the opportunity to go into more detail about how, in his opinion, the Occupy movement is all about rape.

        Breitbart is dead.

        It’ll be hushed up in the press, but I’m certain that Barack Hussein Obama’s paramilitary unit of black Acorn assassins took him out. He was the picture of health. And, he was getting too close to uncovering the Occupy rape complex.
