CPAC: GOProud, No — White Supremacists, Yes.

CPAC: GOProud, No — White Supremacists, Yes. February 10, 2012

The Conservative Political Action Conference, going on right now, will not include pro-equality Republican group GOProud, which was ousted after fury from religious right groups involved in the conference. But it did include white supremacists. Right Wing Watch reports:

Following speeches from Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and Rep. Michele Bachmann, CPAC ishosting the panel “The Failure of Multiculturalism: How the pursuit of diversity is weakening the American Identity” with Peter Brimelow, the founder and head of VDARE.com.

VDARE is a White Nationalist website, run by Brimelow, which frequently publishes the works of anti-Semitic and racist writers and is named after Virginia Dare, who is believed to be the first child of English parents born in the Americas. Brimelow, an immigrant from Great Britain, expresses his fear of the loss of America’s white majority, blames non-white immigrants for social and economic problems and urges the Republican Party to give up on minority voters and focus on winning the white vote. He also said that a New York City subway is the same as an Immigration and Naturalization Service waiting room, “an underworld that is not just teeming but also almost entirely colored.”

VDARE has published the work of people like Robert Weissberg, who says that black and Hispanic students are responsible for problems in the American education systemMarcus Epstein, the Youth for Western Civilization leader who karate-chopped a black woman after calling her a “n****r” (he later pled guilty to assault), and J. Philippe Rushton of the eugenicist Pioneer Fund

While CPAC gave the boot to the gay conservative group GOProud “because of their behavior and attitude,” apparently running a website dedicated to promoting white nationalism is just fine.

Three of the four Republican presidential candidates will be there. I bet none of them says a word about this.
