Neo-Nazi GUSHES Over How Loved He Feels At CPAC, Happy No One Punched Him (DETAILS)

Everyone knows that the Republican Party is racist. That isn’t a secret. Oh, sure its elected leadership and leaders of official organizations try and distance themselves from racist figures in the conservative movement, but they sure as hell don’t kick these folks out. Even the party leaders themselves will let something racist slip now and then, and then they’ll try and walk it back quickly. However, in the age of Trump, there’s no more hiding it.

This week is the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), the biggest gathering of right-wing nuts of the year. The alarm bell on the bigotry on display there needs not be sounded; after all, this is the group that once banned gay GOP groups from participating because they’d upset the homophobic sponsors, and this very year they had invited professional troll, provocateur, and Alt-Right darling Milo Yiannopoulos to speak there with bells on – that is until videos of Milo condoning pederasty surfaced and they had to drop him like a hot a rock. The fact that they disinvited him matters not; after all the racism, anti-Semitism, misogyny, Islamophobia, transphobia, and other forms of open and proud bigotry were just A-OKAY with the good folks at CPAC. It was the political pressure regarding Milo’s potentially being okay with kiddie diddling that forced them to cancel on him.

Therefore, it should be no surprise to anyone that Neo-Nazi leader Richard Spencer says he feels perfectly at home at CPAC. When Spencer showed up to Thursday’s CPAC events, he was greeted with adoring throngs of his fellow bigots, and of course the press was eager to speak with him. Here are a few tweets from reporters in attendance there. In one he says:

“I feel very welcome here. Nobody’s punching me…yet.”

Of course the latter tweet and quote are in response to the time Spencer was infamously punched.

The last vestiges of decent right-wingers did try and intervene, it seems:

American Conservative Union Chair Matt Schlapp, who organizes CPAC, insists that the Alt-Right isn’t what conservatism is about, but seemingly had no problem with Spencer’s presence at CPAC:

Finally, it looks like the media attention got to Schlapp and friends once again, and they caved to public pressure:

The GOP wants everyone to think they aren’t racists, but how the hell can we believe that when stuff like this keeps going down? These people are perfectly fine with bigotry – because many of them are bigots themselves. People like Richard Spencer and Milo Yiannopoulos are just saying out loud what the rest of them are saying behind closed doors.
