LISTEN TO TLR’S LATEST PODCAST:
Written By Jimmy Mahaney
American Conservative Union executive director Dan Schnieder gave a speech at CPAC 2017. In his speech he distances conservatives and the Republican party from the Alt-Right. He described the Alt-Right as Anti-Semites, racists, sexists, a sinister organization, and a hate filled left-wing fascist group. He went on to explain that they must not be normalized and that they hijacked the term Alt-right. Schneider also claimed that the alt-right hates the constitution, free-markets, pluralism, and everything that conservatives stand for.
The alt-right boogeyman Richard Spencer was also at CPAC. Spencer was flocked by reporters at the entrance. It got to the point where security asked him to move because the crowd was blocking the entrance. After a while security asked Spencer to leave all together. Spencer himself is famous for popularizing the term alt-right at the National Policy Institute and using the phrase “hail Trump, hail victory, hail our people!” at a NPI conference.
