We built and organized this party — but now we’re made to feel like interlopers.
I was surprised that I was even asked to speak at CPAC.
Last year, they invited alt-right provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos (and withdrew the invitation only after lewd tapes surfaced).
This year, in addition to the president and vice president, CPAC invited Marion Maréchal-Le Pen, granddaughter of Jean-Marie Le Pen and niece of National Front leader Marine Le Pen. While there were reasonable, mainstream Republican speakers at CPAC, the lineup also featured demagogues like Sheriff David Clarke Jr.
This at the largest annual gathering of conservatives.
Once upon a time, it would have been a given that Charen’s observations would have been robustly supported by Republicans.
Politicians, activists and intellectuals have succumbed with numbing regularity, betraying every principle they once claimed to uphold.
Charen herself said as much today : What happened to me at CPAC is the perfect illustration of the collective experience of a whole swath of conservatives since Donald Trump became the Republican nominee.

The kind of party loyalty that begets a moral bankruptcy resulting in there no longer being any daylight between Democrats and Republicans, thus making it impossible for either side to hold the moral high ground.
Democrats have Bill Clinton, the GOP has Donald Trump: The worst example of party loyalty is when a sexual predator’s bad behavior is brushed away, rationalized, overlooked, or worse: acknowledged as being rooted in truth, or altogether true but dismissed anyway because supporting the party trumps everything else – especially when an election is involved.
