It takes a special kind of stupid to write uninformed crap like this. Leave it to an “insider” and self-inflated puffball to get this so completely and abysmally wrong. Did he bother to contact me and ask? Ha! Did he bother to contact CPAC? Ha ha! Did he read Atlas’ numerous explanations as to why I hold these events at CPAC? Not a chance. He’s a leftoid, he knows better.
CPAC is not holding this event. I am, with Spencer. Our dime, our film. I do this every year to inject some relevance and honesty about the jihad to clueless and compromised CPAC that is hugely attended by good Americans unaware that Keene and co. has sold them out.
One of the strangest moments in this year’s civil war over CPAC was the charge that it had fallen under the influence of the Muslim Brotherhood and of sharia, something rather convincingly rebutted by new of an event tited, “The Ground Zero Mosque: The Second Wave of the 9/11 Attacks.”
The event is a movie premiere, hosted by mosque opposition leader Pamela Geller and her partner Robert Spencer. It will be followed by “a question and action and strategy session on how to stop the Islamic supremacist mega-mosque at Ground Zero.”
UPDATE: Benny updates: Infiltration, cont’d

I’ve asked CPAC and Geller for a bit more detail on whether they approved her event or had anything to do with it, and will update when I get hear back.
UPDATE: Geller emails that she’s renting a room that CPAC has reserved, but paying the Marriott, and did it without discussing the event with CPAC, which may or may not put it on their schedule.
ALSO: CPAC’s Lisa De Pasquale describes the event as “independent.”
To be clear, shruggers: There are fees to both CPAC and the Marriott. And while I have issues with CPAC, and I do, I commend Lisa De Pasquale for giving me the opportunity to hold the event at CPAC, which she has done every year despite my outspoken criticism.
