CPAC Closes Door To Pamela Geller


Pamela Geller of AtlasShrugs.com and the American Freedom Defense Initiative has been a participant at Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) for the past four years. At the events she has brought in people who discuss the influence of Islam on America, including the likes of Geert Wilders, Allen West, Wafa Sultan, Simon Deng, Anders Gravers, and Steve Coughlin. However, this year, the American Conservative Union (ACU) will make no room for Geller or her message.

Geller issued the following statement today:

I won't be at CPAC this year. Every year AFDI organizes a must-see event addressing issues the Grover Norquist/Suhail Khan cabal refuse to address (jihad, sharia, the war on freedom in the West).

This year, I applied to speak and was ignored. I tried to get a room for an AFDI event, "The War on Free Speech" and was ignored. So, for the first time in five years, I won't be at CPAC. Last year Suhail Khan bragged out loud that he (and his other operatives) had successfully kept Robert Spencer and me from being invited to speak. He went so far as to warn people not to attend our events or read our books.

In several articles I took on Grover Norquist and his powerful influence over CPAC, most notably here and here. As soon as I published my Newsmax column concerning his perfidious influence at CPAC, my Newsmax column was taken down and my name and picture were removed from the Newsmax page..... it was two slots away from Grover's. My weekly column never appeared at Newsmax again. It was axed.

Now this. I might add, every AFDI event at CPAC was standing room only. We turned people away every year.

Geller then referenced an article on the issue at Breitbart.com. In that article, Geller gave a statement concerning the intention of her advertisements that countered the #Myjihad ad campaign, which was recently upheld in a court battle.

One commenter stated what he believed to be the real reason behind the shunning of Geller by CPAC. Golem Bar wrote:

"I know why the article doesn't mention it, probably because they don't want to get into hot water with CPAC and be blacklisted but i'll state it for them. Grover Norquist is a Muslim, and not just a regular agnostic apathetic Muslim but a concerted political Islamist who is actively working with Muslim Brotherhood front groups to advance political Islam in America. He married a Palestinian Samah Alrayyes -- who was director of communications for his Islamic Free Market Institute, which he founded in order to advance sharia law in Western economies, along with Abdurrahman Alamoudi a self-described “supporter of Hamas and Hezbollah” who is now in jail with a 23 year sentence for financing terrorism. He pushed the Bush Administration to meet with and hire various radical Muslims with ties to terrorism and the Muslim Brotherhood after 9/11, some of them who were later jailed for supporting and funding terrorism, and Pamela Geller has been at the forefront of raising this issue, hence Norquist and his Islamist allies trying to silence her."

That doesn't change my opinion on the pledges that were abandoned by Republicans this year through Norquist's organization because those promises were made to the American people. However, one does have to question what is taking place behind the scenes and I think Golem Bar might just have hit the nail on the head.

    It would seem that CPAC has evolved itself into fairly strict REPUBLICAN in nature, with some tolerance for SOME Tea Party people - and the REPUBLICANS have moved further left in the last, say, 50 years. Some are almost Centrists.

    CPAC will dig its own grave unless they start moving more to being truly conservative. So...

    Screw 'em

    ACU is a another attempt at re writing what a conservative is.

    Grover Norquist is a Muslim? Guess that fills in a piece of the puzzle for me and explains Bush's, outlandish at the time statement, Islam is a religion of peace! The truth is, Islam is at war with the world and even itself. If Israel and every non-Muslim disappeared from the earth overnight, Muslims would still be killing each other for supremacy. Thanks to Pamela Geller for getting the information out in spite of CPAC. Basically, the Republican Party is just Democrat lite. We would have gotten to this same point in history, just a little bit slower if they would have been in charge from George W onward. We don't seem to have Conservative leaders who can explain America and keep or defend our Christian heritage, which is the gold standard of values. They are all ready and willing to jump on pluralisms, fools gold bandwagon, help pull it and cut the ropes of those trying to slow it down...

    With the type of RNC, CPAC and GOP(goneoldparty) we currently observe at work actively dodging the real problems facing America and freedom, it is going to get a lot worse before it gets better, and the getting better is going to take a lot of work by some real Americans with some spine; not tollerant, PC, wanta-be-everything to everybody empty suits. And regardless of the 'romantic' possibilities, the TP requires some leadership, as all worthy movements do.

    Weak is as weak does!

  • orneagle

    Of course not...they are part of the elitiist that want to get along to come along. CPAC and the Goneoldparty are the problem; they haven't stood for conservative ideas yet, and they don't plan on starting now.

    It is actually very simple. CPAC closes their doors to Geller, therefore America closes it's wallet to them, period!

    Geller is not the only one with the wisdom to warn America about the dangers of sanctioning the activities of the Muslim Brotherhood - Glenn Beck who is now online at theBlaze.com has been warning the nation about them for years. Since CPAC has now proven itself to be anything but truly conservative, it is time for conservative patriots across America to use the purse strings as the power of persuasion in the matter, ie. BOYCOTT all of their events until they see the light of reason and invite Geller back to express her views. When they are left with empty seats and no one purchasing tickets to take part in their events, the squeeze will help them to change course back to the genuinely conservative right. Until then, they do not deserve another red cent from the American public!

    The CPAC has no balls or backbone when dealing with getting the truth out. Their message as been diluted and will be of no consequence to the left but will keep the truth from being said to the public.
