The World According to CPAC
At this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) gathering, we learned five things the Liberal Media will never tell us. Did you know:
The Catholic Church has been infiltrated by — infested with — Marxists, homosexuals and New Age devil worshipers. This dire warning was brought to us by Cliff Kincaid, founder of America’s Survival. Just one chilling example: Catholic bishops “made a deal with the devil to get Obamacare passed.”
Gay marriage is even more hazardous to America than you ever suspected. The American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Prosperity warned CPAC attendees of the “10 Reasons Why Homosexual ‘Marriage’ is Harmful and Must be Opposed.” Just ten??? Now hold on — the Ruth Institute has a brochure stating the “77 Non-Religious Reasons to Support Man/Woman Marriage.”
Thanks to the American Jobs Alliance, we now know that the United Nations is planning to impose Sharia Law on America, and “a quarter of the entire U.S. land area will fall under UN court jurisdiction.”
ProEnglish — gee, I wonder what their mission could be — is warning us that Puerto Rico’s statehood referendum was rigged. It’s part of a diabolical plot to dilute English — the cornerstone of American culture — with that swarthy Hispanic language.
And finally: George Soros controls EVERYTHING!!! Oh come on, we already knew that.
Bill Maher talked about the fact that such a tiny number of rightwing wackjobs can wield such a disproportional amount of power over the Republican Party and the national dialogue. He called it “shit-kicker inflation, which is the problem of all things conservative being portrayed as way bigger than they really are.”
For example — Bill Donahoe’s Catholic League. “It’s just one guy with a fax machine.”
Same with One Million Moms. I don’t know how many “moms” this group has, but they have fewer than 3,000 followers on Twitter.
The linked article describes CPAC as “where the looniest and most far-flung reaches of the far right are given a microphone and a chance to court the next generation of Republicans.”
Or as Bill Maher put it: “They’re just so loud, they haven’t noticed America has moved on without them.”
