Huge thanks to the uniquely brave and brilliant Mark Steyn for his piece over at NRO (yes, NRO) in support of my work:
For the last four years, Pamela Geller of AtlasShrugs.com and the American Freedom Defense Initiative have held events at CPAC featuring guests she invites to discuss the influence of Islamism on America. But this year, the American Conservative Union (ACU) has no room for Geller or her message…
In years past, the events were standing room only thanks to their popularity, but that apparently was not enough to counter pressure brought to bear from somewhere to exclude Geller’s message.
After the fiasco of last November, it’s appropriate for the American right to consider new strategies. Narrowing the message, restricting the debate and enforcing conformity doesn’t seem an obvious winner.
