It’s winter in DC so CPAC must be nearing.
Of course, we all saw this coming didn’t we? Late yesterday Conservative blogs started the meme that OccupyDC protesters were going to target Newt Gingrich and Andrew Brietbart with violence at the 2012 Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington DC. That gathering of the most prominent members of conservative political ideology would be a perfect target for violent Liberals in the minds of conservatives who want to take the gloves off once and for all. You have to keep in mind though that Conservatives can’t be seen as inspiring violence or starting mayhem so there has to be a trigger. For this sort of necessity one only has to look back at the Gulf of Tonkin incident for a historical point of reference.
There has to be an element of race, the great driving force of fear among white Conservatives, that they’ll be overrun by screaming mobs of blacks and latinos and their white liberal lickspittles to get the ball rolling. The Ulsterman Report yesterday in an article entitled, “Occupiers, New Black Panther Members and Union Thugs Prepare To Assault Conservative Conference,” fans the flames of not only partisan political division but clearly prays for black on white violence that it can point to in the future for the purpose of denouncing President Barack Obama.
What the Occupy DC protesters want is to have their voices heard over the megaphone of the 1%; the clinking of GOP bourbon filled highball glasses and practiced moans of conservative male attendees in their first passionate throes with a $300 hooker. The last thing these people want is to grant the Right the ammunition that they’ve always lusted for– that the Occupy movement is not only Liberal [read Communist, irreligious andti-Family] it is also violent to the point that it is a clear and present danger to wealthy people with white skin who cannot defend themselves in a fight.
This whole thing began with Lachlan Markay’s post at Heritage.org written as an exclusive two days before CPAC 2012 was to kick off. Markay, using information sent to him from an anonymous source within the New Black Panther Party, writes that the members joining this protest wont be satisfied with electrical disruptions and shouting “fire” in crowded halls. The New Black Panther Party wanted to “physcially assault speakers.”
I am sure that while Lachlan Markay wrote this he knew he would be Internet famous within minutes. From this one post the thought of a fight with radicval black nationalists spread through the Conservative blogosphere like fire in a grain silo. [Yes I was born in Iowa] Jim Hoft took the time to get up off his knees before the lifesized statue of
Ronald Reagan George W Bush Rush Limbaugh Rick Santorum in his basement and digitally pen this at Big Government, “Obama’s #Occupy army threatened to disrupt and physically assault conservative speakers at the CPAC convention this week in Washington DC. Andrew Breitbart and Newt Gingrich are two conservatives who they will be targeting at the event.”
Chad Sinclair at CBS News betrays the dirty little secret that the MSM wants to see something just like this with his report that picks up the essence of Markay’s blog post while assuring everyone that CPAC 2012 has enough security.
All of this makes me wonder if this wasn’t really germinated from the nugget of Right wing union hatred by John Hinderaker at Power Line three days ago. In that piece Hinderaker has this to say about planned protests by the AFL-CIO:
I’m not going to make it to CPAC this year; too busy in the office. This headline, though, really makes me wish I could attend: “Big labor plans ‘Occupy CPAC.’” That’s right–union goons are going to try to interfere with the conservative gathering. The D.C. AFL-CIO sent a call out to its members:
What do Wisconsin Governor SCOTT WALKER, presidential candidates MITT ROMNEY, NEWT GINGRICH, RICK SANTORUM and House Budget Committee Chair PAUL RYAN have in common?
They all represent the greed of the wealthy 1% and they’ll all be at the 2012 Conservative Political Action Conference.
WE’VE HEARD ENOUGH FROM THE 1%!
Join the rally featuring tents, an inflatable fat cat, puppets, “candidate Walmart,” and more to
LET THE VOICES OF THE 99% BE HEARD!
Friday, February 10, at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel (2600 Woodley Rd at Connecticut Ave NW), by the Woodley Park Metro Station
Coordinated by the Metro Washington Council AFL-CIO
Disgusting. Note that the AFL-CIO is one of the few remaining groups that are not too proud to associate themselves with the Occupiers. David Freddoso reminds us what happened last time the union goons decided to disrupt a conservative event:
You may remember what the union-aided Occupiers managed to do at the D.C. conference center in November. When conservatives staged a conference there, they banged on the windows, physically harmed at least one old woman, blocked local traffic, and used children as human shields. Much of the action was caught on tape.
Watch for more of the same at CPAC.
OccupyDC.org has this to say about their plans for CPAC 2012:
On February 9th through February 11th, a who’s who of dastardly politicians will be holding the Conservative Political Action Conference at the Marriot Wardman Park Hotel at 2660 Woodley Road, NW. Similar to the Alfalfa Club dinner, this event is another gathering of bigots, media mouthpieces, corrupt politicians, and their 1 percent elite puppet masters.
CPAC will parade and attempt to perpetuate the radical right wing’s imperialist ideologies with keynote speakers, movies and banquets dedicated to pursuing its racist, sexist, patriarchal and exploitative agenda.
Spectacles will include imperialist topics such as “From Fidel to Chavez: How Do We Stop the Resurgence of Socialism in Latin America?”, “Is the ‘Arab Spring’ Good or Bad for America?” and frequent bloviation on “American exceptionalism.” Openly racist discourses will be given on “The Failure of Multiculturalism: How the pursuit of diversity is weakening the American Identity” and “Islamic Law in America: How the Obama Justice Department Is Selling Us Out.” The conference will also glorify the role of money in politics in talks such as “How to Raise Money… the Easy Way,” “Citizens United Productions Hosts Blogger Briefing” and “Fundraising Secrets from the Billion $ Man.”
There will also be a discussion entitled “Taking Back Wall Street: The Tea Party vs. Occupy Wall Street,” in which they plan to hear only from Tea Partiers.
Our Mission: Occupy CPAC. Create as much non-violent resistance as possible, and make this a conference the attendees will never forget.
In the end, 99% of me wants this to be a peaceful protest that is mostly ignored by the American MSM. Then there is that evil 1% of me that wantrs the same thing the American MSM really wants, blood, violence, arrests, high ratings and an Internet on fire with rants and raves from both sides. Unlike most American journalists I am at least honest about the 1%.
Qu’ul cuda praedex nihil!
Sanjtu Occupy DC!
