Spencer is a truthful person. When he was told he can not speak about certain issues that are important to him, he declined the honor. And although he did not plan on speaking about these particular issues, if he is being honored with the award and asked to speak, he shouldn't be told what he can, and can not speak about, especially when he believes his views on these issues are truthful and important. That's not the way you honor someone. Spencer's refusal to accept the award shows that truth matters to him more than an award and an honorary speech. That's pretty impressive.
Any no-need-to-talk-about-Islam pseudo-conservative republicans should take their bible to one of the numerous Muslim dominated enclaves in Europe and tell the Muslims that, according to the Bible, Allah is Satan and the false prophet prophet Muhammad was demon possessed.
I am pretty sure that those of you that survive, will end up supporting Robert Spencer in his efforts to warn the West against totalitarian and evil Islam.
If you keep on supporting thugs like Grover Norquist and Suhail Khan you will end up like Europe. You have the privilege to learn from our mistakes. Don't let it all be in vain.
Greetings from Europe.
LGen.Boykin: Well, Grover Norquist, and it is hard for the Republicans to accept this, but Grover Norquist is a Muslim Brotherhood facilitator. Now, he's very popular because of his tax position and the influence that he has over taxes. But the fact of the matter is Grover is the one who brought in Suhail Khan into the conservative movement and has staunchly defended Suhail Khan, who is the son of a very radical Islamic cleric who had [Ayman al-Zawahiri] in his mosque in San Diego a decade ago raising funds, essentially to support terrorism. And Gover has a very checkered background and, let me say Glenn, that even now members of Congress are starting to recognize that Grover has been involved with some very questionable insurgent elements from the Muslim Brotherhood here in America."
That tree's needing a watering...
I found that, one can always tell a lefty by how they berate with personal attacks their subject matter, always comes out, can't keep it in. Case closed = fake Tea Party person .. Robert stand tall accept the plaque (award) be above it all, give respect, get respect, its not about you, its bigger .. this is a big deal, do not, not go there, (show up) represent the truth / truth never hides, so don't you .. many battles to be fought, go win this one .. thanks .. Sarah will be there .. woman has spine, show us yours ..
How bad would it look at CPAC if someone who wins an award was refused the opportunity to collect it. He should show up anyway and flip the bird to Khan and Grover. Those bastards would have their mouths rammed shut faced with that scenario. Agreed.... Spencer should go, no conditions... period.
Michael Coren interviews Robert Spencer on the Peoples Choice Awards.
People's Choice Blog Award is sponsored by Right Wing News and TheTeaParty.net, right? And Cardenas claimed the "Tea Party group" said there could be no criticism of Grover? That's because this is a fake Tea Party group that circles back to CPAC.
"Fake Tea Party group sponsored cruise with slime Grover Norquist, TheTea Party.net PAC raised over $1 million, only gave $12,500 to candidates in 2012. Gives money to corrupt CPAC"
One begins to notice the many institutions in American life where hostile Muslims have burrowed in to subvert.
Why aren't more people concerned about John Brennan running the CIA?
As Robert Spencer observed, "John Brennan has been an incredible enabler of Muslim Brotherhood influence at the highest levels of government."
This isn't just a CPAC problem, which used to be a great organization, this is becoming a Tea Party problem. People better let them know if you are displeased or Grover will co-opt it.
Grover has a long history of being a self serving idiot. If he is allowed to co-opt Tea Party and CPAC then it is over.
Never trusted CPAC. Nothing new here for me. The name just, at least in my book, reeked of deception and possible deceit (like the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act name is an ultimate deception of extraordinary deceit) and nothing they do has even come close to changing my mind.
It appears that CPAC is being taken over by a group which has other than conservative objectives. Perhaps over the next year or two there will be a new and unbastardized group formed to return to the principles of the Reagan, Buckley, Goldwater era.
Or kick these guys out and put them in their place. If we allow 'new groups' to continually re-form then all we do is divide and conquer each other which is exactly what Obama and the left wants...let alone the ME and enemies abroad. Conservatism is the true bulwark in this country against despotism. the rest of the world knows this possibly better than most citizens.
back in 2011 I was warning about him
I thought I had comforting news about CPAC and our intrepid Governor, Bob McDonnell, but since connecting the dots it was just a head fake.
Tea Party meeting on Tuesday was mostly to vent against the politicians that voted for Bob McDonnell's huge tax raising transportation bill. Hastily constructed and not solving the problem which has been around for decades, it passed the House of Delegates with three votes from our area. These are all Republicans and two were elected because they were so-called grass roots Republicans. It got these three votes because the lead dog was promised more power by heading more committees. The other two went along to get along. Boom! It passed. This problem needed a solution, but not this one.
We found out that Bob McDonnell was invited to speak at CPAC and that he was dis-invited. Now that I have connected the dots, it is just a cover-up to protect Norquist. The Republican ranks are not happy with our Delegates and there will be hell to pay. I was pretty much ignorant of Norquist's recent past as he has always been somewhat of a hero to my husband with his tax stances. He knew of Norquist back in the '70s. He was pretty surprised to hear of this. Many people will be. Spread the word. This CPAC junk is unacceptable.
CPAC - Conning Pathetic Anarchist Clowns? From what I'm reading these people don't seem to have the first clue what the word Conservative actually means! Either that or, like the US government, it's been usurped by those who do not have the orgs best interest at heart.
"You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we will sentence them to take the first step into a thousand years of darkness. If we fail, at least let our children and our children’s children say of us we justified our brief moment here. We did all that could be done" — Ronald Reagan
God I miss Ronald Reagan.
Infidel... here's a bit of a run-down over the last four years of the Khan/CPAC desert fiefdom imposed on ACU and the CPAC with regards to Geller and Spencer. From Pamela Hall.
Here's Michael Coren's interview with Spencer about Norquist.
Thanks so much for this link. I feel like I have followed this pretty closely over the past several years but there is still a lot of background I know nothing of! I haven't followed all the links or read all the material yet but look forward to diving into it.
What is interesting is that when Geller showed Wilder's film "Fitna"... at CPAC a few years back, Wilder's had to leave the room for security reasons as the mean and unhappy group “Muslims For America” were in attendance.
I don't know what Tea Party group he is speaking of,but nobody in my group has any problem with attacking Islam loving Grover.CPAC is a joke.And a bad one at that.
WOW Pam Gellar is so popular. Okay then she should hold her own conference and stop pitting herself against the only properly funded conserativa action group we have.
Since Right Wing News and Tea Party .net didnt make the list , how does their noms matter?
Stop the non-sense. Pam Gellar should hold her own forum at the own conference or just attend the existing forums at CPAC
She is the problem, She did interveiws for Current TV's documentary ,making anyone concerned about Jihadism look like crazies.
She is not on a list of "who we aren't going to invite to CPAC" There is no such list
CPAC just lists who are the invited to speak
Agaiin, GOproud, Christie , Pam Gellar can all attend CPAC as participants.
None are on a list of "non-speaker"
WOW you are so anonymous. Okay then you should hold your own logical fallacy conference and stop patting yourself on your pointed RINO head. No, really.
CPAC has, in the past, accepted Geller's application for Freedom Defense Iniative panels to run concurrently with CPAC. This year they refused her space. A speaking role was never the issue.
Geller's subject to a cordon sanitaire because of Keene, Khan and Norquist. Now that Keene is out of the picture, she's not even allowed on the premises in any speaking capacity. Seriously, How can you be so dim witted and still breathe. Get a clue and educate yourself. Start here.
Here's Khan at his best or his Islamic dissembling worst... take your pick.
Khan and Norquist are running their own little desert fiefdom. Here's a quote from Khan: "Dr. Spencer... doesn't know what he's talking about. And that's why we have a panel of people who actually know what they are talking about... that's why the ACU has rejected Dr. Spencer, and Frank Gaffney, David Horowitz and Pamela Geller.
Khan can't stand the heat, or debate.
Seriously, your lame attempt to defend Khan, and Norquist as the sheiks of CPAC shows there is an even bigger problem among conservatives. And no! Muslims for America attending CPAC is NOT a "Jihad Forum". Give yourself a kick and wake up. You're snoozing on the tracks and a train is coming.
 links fixed
WOW Pam Gellar LIVES in your HEAD for FREE... You are the only one mentioning her.
You are so far off topic the water must taste a quite salty.
Grover Norquist is an unprincipled, quisling, islamic sympathizer who has done severe and permanent damage to our security and sovereignty. If Norquist controls CPAC, CPAC is a hollow shell of conservatism.
Pamela Geller is a warrior and patriot who walks into the belly of the beast to fight such putrid men.
Yup. A little more from Wikipedia:
He has long been active in building bridges between various ethnic and religious minorities and the free-market community through his co-founding of the Islamic Free Market Institute, and his involvement with Acton Institute, Christian Coalition and Toward Tradition.
In 2010, Norquist, whose wife was born into a Muslim family, emerged as an outspoken Republican foe of politicizing the mosque-in-Manhattan issue, calling it a "distraction".
A distraction... Hmm... I can think of many words for it, and none of them is "distraction."
Who's running this? Karl Rove? Come on... this is ridiculous. So evil and corruption is creeping into every corner of our lives, huh?
Didn't TRS win this last year or recently?
Thanks for the post 911. I appreciate it.

Give me Sarah Palin the only true blue leader out there, honest, open to all .. debating the Constitution her being .. its never about her, stand tall Robert, more importantly, its about your writers, they won, you couldn't have done it without them .. go there, rise above the fray, be a man ..
