CPAC 2007: The Unauthorized Documentary
Watch CPAC 2007: The Unauthorized Documentary. The Nation’s Max Blumenthal took a camera inside the Conservative Political Action Conference and recorded some comments from some well-known and not-so-well-known righties.
You also get to see Ann Coulter lob the “faggot” bomb (and see Max ask her a question about the sanctity of marriage), and watch Malkin come unglued with anger in the short documentary, but you also get to see a horde of xenophobe presidential candidate Tom Tancredo supporters get mad when asked if there’s a connection between race and his anti-immigrant views and they go unhinged, including one guy who didn’t want to be seen on camera wearing a Confederate flag pin. He covered it up with a Tancredo sign and gets upset with Blumenthal when asked why he wanted to cover it up.
There is thoughtful commentary by former Rep. Bob Barr on how the conservative movement has lost its way, and Grover Norquist on the dangers of the anti-immigrant Tancredo candidacy, which threatens to turn the “brown” vote away from the Republican party for decades to come.
Another hilarious bit is when he goes up to the table for the National Black Republicans Association table and it’s staffed by, as Max says, a “curiously pale black Republican” who tries to explain why it’s hard to recruit.
This phenomenon, sadly, is not hard to find. Take a look at the head of Project 21, a supposedly black organization that provides token talking heads of color for the MSM to represent the right wing viewpoint.
