None Dare Call Them Racist: GOP Fan Group CPAC Hosting White Nationalist VDARE Founder
Following speeches from Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and Rep. Michele Bachmann, CPAC is hosting the panel “The Failure of Multiculturalism: How the pursuit of diversity is weakening the American Identity” with Peter Brimelow, the founder and head of VDARE.com.
VDARE is a White Nationalist website, run by Brimelow, which frequently publishes the works of anti-Semitic and racist writers and is named after Virginia Dare, who is believed to be the first child of English parents born in the Americas. Brimelow, an immigrant from Great Britain, expresses his fear of the loss of America’s white majority, blames non-white immigrants for social and economic problems and urges the Republican Party to give up on minority voters and focus on winning the white vote. He also said that a New York City subway is the same as an Immigration and Naturalization Service waiting room, “an underworld that is not just teeming but also almost entirely colored.”
Res ispa loquitor.
UPDATE: And guess what? Brimelow’s not the only white supremacist to be given an honored spot at CPAC. Robert Vandervoort, of ProEnglish and American Renaissance infamy, is there as well, cuddling up with the National Review‘s staff racist, John Derbyshire.
