Feud Key —
CPAC vs. Pamela Geller: Geller, famed anti-Islam blogger, has spoken at CPAC for the last four years in a row, but she’s not invited to the 2013 gathering. Breitbart News thinks it’s because Geller just won a high-profile court case to put anti-Islam ads in the New York City subway.
Geller vs. Grover Norquist: Geller thinks she was disinvited from CPAC because she criticized the anti-tax advocate. As The Right Scoop
explains, Geller accused Norquist of shilling for Muslim radicals. “He
and his Palestinian wife, Samah Alrayyes, who was director of
communications for his Islamic Free Market Institute until they married
in 2005, are very active in ‘Muslim outreach,'” Geller said in 2010.
Michelle Malkin vs. Norquist and CPAC: “I’ll #standwithpamelageller over Grover Norquist in a heartbeat. How about you?” Malkin tweeted.
CPAC vs. Chris Christie: New Jersey Gov. Christie
wasn’t invited to CPAC this year. Christie has a “limited future” in the
Republican Party, a CPAC “insider” told The National Review.
Christie has indicated support for gun control measures and said very
nice things about President Obama’s handling of Hurricane Sandy.
CPAC vs. GOProud: CPAC did not invite the gay
Republican group GOProud, a decision organizers said was not about gay
rights, but decorum. “From time to time, there are organizations or
individuals who we think go over the top when they are our guests at
CPAC and for years we’ve decided not to invite them again for the
following year given that particular group of circumstances,” CPAC chair Al Cardenas said.
The National Review vs. CPAC: The conservative magazine’s editors
say CPAC was wrong to keep out GOProud, especially given that young
Republicans are more accepting of gay rights. As for Christie’s
heresies, the magazine says, “Our approach has been to praise those of
Christie’s policies that we think judicious and wise, and to criticize
those that we think provocative and unwise. We do not think the latter
requires reading him out of the conservatism movement or the Republican
New York Rep. Peter King vs CPAC : Asked about Christie’s snub at CPAC, King took on most conservatives south of the Mason-Dixon line. “[Republicans] are more and more taking on this anti-Northeast attitude… We say fine, if you want to be anti-Northeast, then the Northeast is going to be anti-them.”
King vs. Rubio: ” Rubio
and these other Republican candidates are coming to New York to raise
money… I don’t think any senator or congressman who voted against aid
for Sandy should get one nickel from New York.”
King vs. John Boehner: After the House’s initial vote
against a Sandy relief package, he said, “Anyone from New York or New
Jersey who contributes one penny to congressional Republicans is out of
their minds… Because what they did last night was put a knife in the back of New Yorkers and New Jerseyans.”
