CPAC 365: September 18, 2018

Dear Mr. VP,

You’ll be headlining a NEW CPAC on Friday. CPAC 365 promises, according to the website, to have “richer intellectual content.”

In advance of this illustrious event, let’s examine just a small sampling of intellectual moments in CPAC history.

1. Bobby Jindal accuses African-American AG Eric Holder of “standing in the schoolhouse door” to keep students from attending charter schools. Yup. He called a Black man a segregationist.

2. Milo Yiannopoulos, who is a racist, misogynist xenophobe, found the line CPAC wouldn’t cross when he condoned sex between older men and 13-year-old boys, and was disinvited. (And lost his book deal! Poor guy.)

3. Someone espoused actual conservative thought and got booed.

4. Attendee Scott Terry noted slaves should have thanked slave owners for feeding and housing them, and people cheered.

5. CPAC organizers desperately tried to show a backbone and draw some sort of line in the sand in regards to conservative philosophy by kicking Richard Spencer out of CPAC 2017, though as noted above his views probably would have been cheered by more than a few attendees.

Can’t wait to see what surfaces this weekend at CPAC 365! Have the best time!
