Hitler, Franco, & Mussolini all headed coalitions of Nationalist Fascist & Conservative factions, & all subscribed to a far-right ideology which we may call National Conservatism, & which involves scapegoating minorities & the Left as threats to 'Western Civilisation'. ImageImageImageImage
Should we be concerned that it was Britain's turn to host the National Conservatism conference aka #NatCon, aka the #NatC conference?

Unless you've been living under a rock you'll know that in May, the American hard Right came to England. Calvin Robinson did not speak at it. Image
Unlike in Hungary, where last year's gathering of Europe’s extreme-right figures was an offshoot of the Trump & Bolsonaro supporting US Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), the NatCon conference here was backed by the Edmund Burke Foundation.

Der ehem. Präsident des Verfassungsschutz und @CDU-Mitglied #Maassen hat ein Interview gegeben.

- Bevölkerungsaustausch
- geheime Netzwerke bestimmen die Politik
- USA kontrollieren die EU
- USA bestimmen über die politische Führung in Deutschland
- US-Stellvertreterkrieg Bild von Maassen bei der CP...
#Maassen war auf der #CPAC in Ungarn.
DEM Netzwerktreffen von Rechten, Rechtsextremen, Faschisten und Christofaschisten.

Im Anschluss hat er der #BudapersterZeitung ein Interview gegeben, welches tief blicken lässt.
Natürlich spricht Herr #Maassen über die bösen "Linken", über das ganz böse "wokeness" und, dass die @CDU/@CSU schon lange nicht mehr konservativ ist. Auch nicht unter @_FriedrichMerz.

Hier versucht er eine Verschiebung der Standpunkte.

1. #CPAC(Conservative Political Action) ist eine Organisation der US-Republikaner,ein Flügeltreffen des Trump-Lagers.Warum CPAC in Budapest? Ungarn ist ein Vorbild, weil... als "christlich illiberale Demokratie" (Orbans Worte) vorbildhaft gegen "woke" und "gender" kämpft. Ungarn ist ein "Disneyland" der Rechten sagt mir ein ungarischer Beobachter:Eingeschränkte Pressefreiheit,Kampf gegen LGBTQ+-Rechte, gegen den "liberalen Virus"...

Faux Republican Ana Navarro suggests the GOP is nothing but grievance politics and falsely claims the GOP is "fighting black history."
"It's [about making] things up that enrage people ... that piss people off, that makes them feel oppressed," she shouted.
Screaming about @michaeljknowles' denouncement of the transgender ideology at #CPAC, Navarro claims he's going to get some killed.
And she defends kids being exploited at drag shows: "If you are against your children going to a drag show, don't take your children to a drag show"
Whoopi defends parents bringing kids to drag shows and falsely claims that a drag queen has never killed anyone.

So America's very own Boris Johnson - Donald Trump - gave a speech to the far-right wingnuts & authoritarians at #CPAC filled with lies & wildly inaccurate claims about his own presidency, Joe Biden’s presidency, foreign affairs, crime, elections & other subjects.
Trump claimed that “killings are taking place at a number like nobody’s ever seen, right in Manhattan.”

Manhattan North: 43 reported murders in 2022 & 379 in 1990.

Manhattan South: 35 in 2022 & 124 in 1990.

NYC: 438 in 2022 versus 2,262 in 1990 and 1,927 in 1993.
Talking about rioting amid racial justice protests after the police murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis in 2020, Trump claimed he had been ready to send in the National Guard in Seattle. It's bullshit of course.

A new proposed bill in Florida would not only grant the state the authority to seize trans-identifying children from parents if they receive treatment for gender dysphoria, but to seize kids if they are merely “at risk” of receiving such treatment.
The bill that would grant Florida the power to seize trans-identifying children receiving or likely to receive treatment for gender dysphoria is sponsored by Republican state senator Clay Yarborough, who is a follower of Christ. @Clay_Yarborough…
This comes as Daily Wire columnist @MichaelJKnowles called at #CPAC for the “eradication” of “transgenderism” from American life—a call to action that Knowles has insisted was not a Hitlerian call to arms to enact a genocide against trans people.

It ain’t about the name on the front: Trump, DeSantis, Cruz, McCain, Romney, etc.

It’s about the name on the back: ‘merica.

When we’re dumb, we let them make it about themselves. When we’re smart, we make them make it about us.

We can’t afford anymore dumb.
We have two pit bulls in this primary at least, when there were past years we weren’t sure we had any. And right when we need a proverbial killer, too! The absolute dumbest thing we could, then, is create an environment where we don’t make them truly show us the alpha dog.
They won’t do that to us. We will do this to ourselves, with silly high school BS. We want them to fight, but we need to supply the right piece of meat. Because we want whomever comes out of that cage ready for war.

VIDEO THREAD: Tonight, fans of Nick Fuentes (who was kicked out of #CPAC for anti-semitism such as praising Hitler and Holocaust denial) gathered at the Residence Inn by Marriott National Harbor to see him speak across from CPAC.

The men yelled "Groyper! Groyper!" inside the……
The self-proclaimed security for the "Groypers" confronted photojournalist @zdroberts by approaching him up close and falsely whining "stop assaulting me with your camera!"

The man repeatedly misidentified him as another journalist out-loud, provoking the crowd to chant at him.
One of the men waiting to get into the "Groyper" rally showed off his suit to photog @zdroberts, noting that he wanted a "beautiful, 1930's style."

"What about the 1930's do you enjoy?" Zach asked him."

"Oh, all of it, especially the part where you all are dead," he replied.

People are tired "of RINOs and globalists," continues Trump.
"If you put me back in the White House their reign is over," says Trump. "I am your warrior, I am your justice...I am your retribution."

Michael Knowles of the Daily Wire says at CPAC that “transgendersim” should be “eradicated,” to thunderous applause.
@michaeljknowles @dailywireplus #CPAC #trans #transgender
@MichaelJKnowles’ insistence that there is no such thing as being transgender and his insistence that any acknowledgment of transgender people’s humanity or existence should be “eradicated from public life” lays bare conservatives’ intentions to ban trans care for all ages.
Many say that if @michaeljknowles of @dailywireplus had demanded at CPAC that homosexuality or Judaism be “eradicated”, this would be akin to Hitler’s Final Solution for Jews and gay people in Nazi Germany. They hear in his call to eradicate transgenderism a call for mass murder.

Minutes ago at CPAC, Trump just said “Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan would have never in a million years happened under Trump.”In the end, Trump was a pacifist willing to trade market stability and egregious human rights abuses for his precious (and failed)trade deal.With advisors 1/3
like Mnuchin, China Inc. was always safe. Individuals like Pottinger, Turpin, Lighthizer, Nikakhtar, Kissel, Krach, Bethel, Dabbar, Mattis, Johnston, Wray, and many more did ALL OF THE GOOD WORK countering the CPC at every turn. (I’ve certainly left some off this list). 2/3
Trump and Mnuchin worked against the China team at every turn. His comments at CPAC confirm his personal position. @POTUS45 #China #Pacifist #Trump #CPAC 3/3

CPAC claims to be the largest annual gathering of conservatives in the nation.

I’ve always been happy that #CPAC included the discussion of abortion and prolife speakers, and have spoken twice at the conference. Once pregnant and once as a new mom.
I have served on the Social and Cultural Planning Committee for CPAC, where a small group of leaders meets to compile topic and speaker ideas and submit them to CPAC. These always seemed to be considered and many accepted.

But not this year.
Oddly, this year, not a single speaker or session focused on abortion.

Not one on the threat to women's sports

Not one on religious liberty

Not one on family, marriage, sex trafficking, pornography, etc...

1/ THREAD: Body Language Analysis No. 4634: Trump's Tick-like Nonverbal Behavior. #Trump #BodyLanguage #BodyLanguageExpert #CPAC
2/ The shoulder-shrugging and neck foreshortening (colloquially referred to in the video as 'twitching') is a subconsciously-driven, tick-like response Trump exhibits with extremely high frequency when he mispronounces words — and then tries to ad lib his way out of the mistake.
3/ This verbal-nonverbal-verbal cluster behavior is similar to a person coughing whilst simultaneously moving their chair position and/or shifting their buttocks in their chair immediately after farting — in an effort camouflage an embarrassing faux pas.

Rubio closing his #CPAC remarks, which were mostly about Marxism/cancel culture, with some Ukraine talk: "The one thing I think everyone can agree upon is that the people of Ukraine are inspiring to the world... these are people saying, we refuse to be Putin's slaves."
