Cleek’s Law: Today’s conservatism is the opposite of what liberals want today, updated daily.
Roy Edroso, at Alicublog:
I see Milo Yiannopoulos’ friends have turned on him. Just kidding — they were never his friends; just a bunch of conservatives and libertarians who took him up because, one, he hated things they also hated (liberals, women, the transgendered, et alia); two, he celebrated things they also celebrated, primarily the vicious, spiteful treatment of anyone weaker than themselves; and three, because he was ostentatiously gay — indeed an old-fashioned caricature of homosexuality straight out of the Liberace playbook — and allowed himself to be associated with them, which gave conservatives and libertarians two things they thought would advantage them in the dreary Culture Wars they’re always pursuing: glamour and victim status…
You have to feel sorry for CPAC. They booked a perfectly normal Nazi in good faith and then found out he was some kind of *weird* Nazi.

CPAC has always been a clown show for college students and bored retirees, even before it was clear the whole movement was so stupid too. https://t.co/bkD5lio4ms

The concession here is that there is a line, CPAC just doesn't think nazism lite crosses it

Don't worry, CPAC will still be a celebration of heterosexual assault.
