Pamela Geller’s ‘Uninvited’ Panel Presentation an Attack on ‘Stealth Jihad’

Famed anti-jihad activist Pamela Geller made a splash with her appearance at the special Breitbart breakout panel, “The Uninvited,” at this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC).

In true Breitbart fashion, Breitbart News–itself a sponsor of the 2013 CPAC–held its own panel and stocked it with some of those voices that were systematically prevented from officially speaking at the conservative event. Seeking to engage with voices beyond those approved by both the Old Media and the GOP establishment, Breitbart News sponsored “The Uninvited,” a panel featuring topics, experts, and personalities that were absent from CPAC this year.

Of the many outspoken guests, Pamela Geller has a record of raising the hackles of the liberal media and even some on the right that are squeamish of her topics and her command of the facts. Geller didn’t disappoint, either, when it came for her time to speak out that Saturday afternoon.

“Truth is the new hate speech,” Geller proclaimed. She went on to warn the audience of a “stealth jihad” that was being waged against free speech right here in America; a war meant to silence any dissent against sharia law and radical Islam. Geller was incensed noting that this stealth jihad is even being waged on behalf of radical Islam by the American right. She was sad to note that the right is too afraid to speak out for fear of being labeled Islamophobic.

All this, Geller hinted, is one of the reasons she had been barred from being part of the CPAC schedule. She went on to criticize CPAC for silencing this subject matter, something she called a crime.

CPAC 2013: OK, Can We Just Be Done With Donald Trump Now?

March 18, 2013 | Filed Under Conservatives, CPAC, Donald Trump, Elections, GOP, Republicans, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

I was at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Maryland this year but I was not yet at the event on Thursday morning, so I missed The Donald’s speech. I watched the video later because I heard a lot of people wondering what the heck this guy was talking about. And after seeing the video, I have to say this: can we finally be done with Donald Trump in GOP politics, now?

Trump started out his speech talking about how the country was in trouble. Not a big newsflash, that. He also noted that the GOP was in serious trouble. Another newsflash. But then came a slap in the face. Here he was at a conservative gathering and what was the third point he made?

“The Republican Party, I can almost want to say it’s going to be a little bit tough and especially as you get more and more conservative. They get nasty. They don’t like to hear what we have to say.”

Um… what?

Who is “we” and is everyone in your audience is a closed-minded, nasty, creep, Mr. Trump?

CPAC 2013 Wrap Up: The Libertarians Take Over

March 17, 2013 | Filed Under Conservatives, CPAC, Republicans, Warner Todd Huston | 1 Comment

-By Warner Todd Huston

On Saturday after noon they announced the winners of the straw poll giving us an idea of who the attendees of the event would like to see run for president this far out of 2016. Interestingly, no “establishment” pols appeared anywhere on the list.


The Results Board

Here are the results:

  • KY Senator Rand Paul (25%)
  • FL Senator Marco Rubio (23%)
  • PA Senator Rick Santorum (8%)
  • NJ Gov. Chris Christie (7%)
  • WI Congresman Paul Ryan (6%)
  • WI Gov Scott Walker (5%)
  • Doctor Ben Carson (4%)
  • TX Senator Ted Cruz (4%)
  • LA Gov Bobby Jindal (3%)
  • AK Gov Sarah Palin (3%)
  • Others (14%)
  • Undecided (1%)

So, what does this mean? As one person noted, the libertarians took over CPAC.

Note that all those above were non-establishment people with Rand being the most un-establishment of them all. But Rubio was opposed in his primary by both the Florida and national establishment (they all supported Charlie Crist who ended up switching parties to a Dem. after he lost), Santorum is no establishment guy, neither is Carson or Cruz. Christie is as close to establishment as it gets and even he isn’t totally “one of those” in many ways. I wouldn’t call Ryan an establishment guy, either, as he’s brought them to him–via his expertise on the budget–as opposed to him bending over backwards to join them as most do.

CPAC 2013: Mitt Romney Speaks

March 15, 2013 | Filed Under Budget, Constitution, CPAC, Ethics, GOP, Government, Jobs, Mitt Romney, President, Republicans, Taxes, Warner Todd Huston | 1 Comment

-By Warner Todd Huston

Apologizing for not winning the last election, a chastened and humbled Mitt Romney came before the crowd at CPAC here today vowing to be a “coworker” with conservatives to get the country back on the right track.

Romney entered the stage to loud applause, some of the loudest for the day. His appearance certainly seemed to find approval with this crowd.

His speech was very good. One wag noted that he may be the most inspiring loser ever.

The former GOP nominee for President spoke all in big terms today, not much getting down in the weeds of specific programs. He was stopped occasionally by respectful and sometimes enthusiastic applause. He ended to a standing ovation, as well.

One thing is sure, the crowds at CPAC are mainstream Republicans as opposed to strictly hard right conservatives. If this crowd were more hardcore a moderate like Mitt Romney would never have been received, nominee or no, as well as he has been here in the last three years.

CPAC–Rand Paul: Not a Penny to Countries That Burn U.S. Flag

March 15, 2013 | Filed Under Bill of Rights, Budget, Constitution, CPAC, Economy/Finances, Ethics, Foreign Countries, GOP, Government, Kentucky, Rand Paul, Republicans, Senate, Taxes, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

Kentucky Senator Rand Paul didn’t disappoint on yesterday’s appearance at CPAC at one point in his speech saying of foreign aide, “I say not one penny more to countries that are burning our flag.”

When he kicked off his address he joked that he’d only been given 20 minutes to speak but had brought 13 hours of material. He went on to joke that because of his filibuster Obama might ant to “drone” him.

This set Paul up to discuss theObama’s drone program, the National Defense Authorization Act, and how it is borderline unlawful to use drones on American soil without the due process of law.

CPAC 2013

March 14, 2013 | Filed Under Conservatives, CPAC, House of Representatives, Republicans, Warner Todd Huston, Washington D.C. | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

Once again I am attending the Conservative Political Action Conference here in Washington D.C.–well, not D.C. exactly but outside the city in National Harbor, Maryland, a 20 minute drive from downtown.

The morning started off with Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, U.S. Representative Allen West, and Senator Pat Toomey and a few others.

CPAC’s early group discussion on Thursday was all about cultural diversity with a panel titled “Respecting families and the rule of law: a lasting immigration policy.” This panel addressed the thorny issue of the conservative position on the current problems over immigration, illegal or otherwise.

Paul Ryan to Keynote Conservative Political Action Conference in March

January 14, 2013 | Filed Under Conservatives, CPAC, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

The Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) has announced that its keynote speaker will be Wisconsin Congressman and former GOP Vice Presidential nominee Paul Ryan.

“We are pleased to announce that Congressman Paul Ryan will be a featured speaker at CPAC 2013,” said Al Cardenas, American Conservative Union Chairman and CPAC host. “From the day he was elected, Chairman Ryan has been a strong voice in Congress for pro-growth, free-market economic policies and has always been a CPAC favorite.”

The three-day conference scheduled to begin March 14 has for forty years been one of the biggest conservative meetings in the country and has served as a major forum for Republicans and conservatives seeking the White House.

While Rep. Ryan has not announced any decisions to seek the GOP nomination for 2016, his CPAC appearance could serve as a first step toward a run for president.

By the way, everyone, I’ll be at CPAC once again this year, so I’ll be reporting about Ryan’s speech.
