Ed Schultz spoke to Mike Papantonio and Goldie Taylor about the Republicans latest dive off of the right wing cliff with the inclusion of White Nationalist Peter Brimelow at this year's Conservative Political Action Conference, otherwise known as CPAC.
As the panel noted, this is who the Republican Party has become. Forget trying to mask their racism and xenophobia, it's just right out in the open now for everyone to see and we have three of their presidential candidates refusing to denounce the inclusion of this man and attending the same event. There was a time when this would have been considered quite astounding, but not any more.
Here's more from Right Wing Watch on Brimelow -- CPAC Set to Host White Nationalist Leader:
Republican presidential candidates Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich, along with several Republican senators and congressmen, are set to appear at the American Conservative Union’s Conservative Political Action Conference, but the GOP brass aren’t the only ones set to be at CPAC. As we’ve previously reported, CPAC will play host to anti-gay groups such as the Family Research Council, the birther leader of WorldNetDaily, and the Apartheid-nostalgic Youth for Western Civilization.
But that isn’t all.
Following speeches from Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and Rep. Michele Bachmann, CPAC is hosting the panel “The Failure of Multiculturalism: How the pursuit of diversity is weakening the American Identity” with Peter Brimelow, the founder and head of VDARE.com.
