Liberals finally found a reason to pay close attention to CPAC after an audience member spoke in favor of segregation.  

Outlets like Talking Points Memo moved quickly to make Scott Terry, reportedly a member of the White Student Union at Towsen University in Maryland, the face of CPAC - while at the same time dismissing former Congressman and CPAC superstar Allen West as a “token.” 

The panel was dedicated to minority outreach, but the true minority in the room seemed to be Scott Terry and White Union founder Matthew Heimbach.

TPM reports, “Several people in the audience cheered and applauded Terry’s outburst” questioning Frederick Douglass’ forgiveness of his former slave master" -- but video doesn’t bear out that account, despite being embedded within TPM’s report.

Jason Howerton of The Blaze spoke to Terry and assures readers that Terry is not the face of conservatism, despite what media coverage would like the public to believe.


I talked to Scott Terry who made some outrageous comments at CPAC today... I also talked to his colleague at Towson White Students Union


Contrary to what Think Progress, HuffPost & others are portraying, Scott Terry and his white student union group are NOT conservatives 

Real conservatives are familiar enough with this narrative, unfortunately.

The racist guy said some ridiculously offensive stuff. The audience was appalled and quickly dismissed him and his friends.

Aside from that, a liberal activist named Kim Brown also attended. According to witnesses, she spent the whole time heckling panel/audience.

Audience members were frustrated with her heckling by the end and made that very clear. So what happened next?

Talking Points Memo wrote up a story equating audience being frustrated with Brown and the racist's comments:http://tpmdc.talkingpointsmemo.com/2013/03/tea-party-event-on-racial-tolerance-turns-to-chaos-as-white-supremacists-arrive.php 

TPM did this on purpose. Their goal was to paint all the people there as racist. Any decent human being should be offended by that.

While that display at CPAC is horrible, it's an audience member. Let's find out more about who it is before condemning the ACU.

In case anyone in the liberal media is interested, K. Carl Smith was the invited presenter and had plenty of interest to say. Anyone?

That's out of line. Unfortunately many people seem to favor generalizations and making one or a few people out to represent the whole when that's just not the case. Like equating everyone who supports OWS with the few violent Anarchists that attached themselves to the movement or calling all TeaPartiers racist due to a few chuckleheads.

I hate generalizations.

 


Thank God......it's Friday!!!

Even if it doesn't represent the majority of the people there you have to wonder why they chose CPAC.  Maybe because they felt they had an audience.

I guess I'd have to have read those publications in order to see that.

But I don't so I didn't.

I hope the rest of the audience boo'd him.

Ah, I see - read a few other threads and feel a little more caught up now.

Exactly which articles painted this racist as the "face of CPAC"?

To make a scene. And that they did. There was outrage, and they were asked to leave.

If they had gone to some liberal conference, it may have gone to physical violence.

They would know that CPAC folks would listen initially, then shut them up, appalled.

Actually, they do not fit in either party.  No one would want to associate with avowed racists.

Absolutely they booed.

What publications are you referring to?

But remember the journalist at CPAC who interviewed them after the session, found out they are members of the White Student Union, did some research and came up with their mission statement.

That - along with their statements in the session -  are plenty enough to determine they are racists.

As mentioned in the post: liberal ones like Talking Points Memo, Think Progress.

It's all over the blogosphere - so look at other places like HuffPost, Politico, others. You can find all those articles in those websites.
