Al Cardenas, the chairman of the American Conservative Union (ACU) interviewed with Latino star journalist Jose Diaz-Balart and said CPAC 2013 will be used to “stimulate the conservative electorate to support this immigration measure,” meaning Rubio’s legislation. He said the “measure” will allow “11 million to come out of the shadows,” and “have immediate access to residency and citizenship.” Also below, don’t miss CPAC People’s Choice Blog Award 2013 Winner Robert Spencer not allowed to accept his CPAC award. One more hits the dust with the rest of us domino-ing right behind.
Makes more sense now that CPAC has denied Pamela Geller a space for her popular annual forums on the danger of Islamists and Islamization in the U.S. Now we know conservatism is being reshaped to accept everyone, no matter their status.
But then there’s this, TheTeaParty.net held a contest – The People’s Choice Blog Award. Robert Spencer at JihadWatch won by a huge majority, but…TheTeaParty.net will not allow Spencer to accept his award unless he makes certain promises, which he will not agree to do:
I was surprised and honored that Jihad Watch was among the nominees for the People’s Choice Blog Award, sponsored by Right Wing News and TheTeaParty.net, to be awarded at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) 2013.
… Jihad Watch won decisively, getting over 50% of the vote in a field of fifteen….
But as time went by and no announcement was made of this victory, and the voting continued despite my having been told that it officially ended last Friday night and that I had won, and the promised links and other placement promised to the winning blog didn’t materialize, I started to wonder. So I contacted the organizer who had written me telling me I won and asked him what was going on.
He told me that there was a slight problem: the Tea Party group, which co-sponsored this People’s Choice Blog Award, didn’t want to allow me to receive it at CPAC next week unless I promised not to criticize Grover Norquist and Suhail Khan as I accepted the award. ~ Robert Spencer – read the entire story at Always on Watch.
