Attending the ACU’s (American Conservative Union) CPAC, Conservative Political Action Conference, for the first time last week was a pleasant experience that I encourage anyone with an open mind to attend.
The conference at the Gaylord National Convention Center in National Harbor Maryland is a four day speaker event including smaller group breakout sessions where knowledgeable speakers answer limited questions.
By definition, it is not a bipartisan affair and is refreshing how relaxed and open everyone I met was to speak their mind. By ACU’s statistics, 50% of attendees were 25 years old or younger and they were polite and considerate.
Matt Schlapp is the chairman of ACU and put on a great event from venue to speaker selection. Well done, Matt. My only question is why did you
feel it necessary to give a platform to an open communist Van Jones? CPAC was such an overwhelming success that his presence and invitation to perpetuate his leftist agenda was shocking and disappointing. He pandered to the audience through obfuscation and false praise all the while spewing leftist propaganda. The only reason someone of his ilk should be invited is when he has a complete awakening like Candace Owens had and can speak from experience how wrong the other side is.
My biggest takeaway from CPAC is the feeling of comfort from being around like-minded people not silenced for expressing their love of our country and our president’s leadership. From young to old, I did not meet a rude person. Nobody was pushing their agenda on me, granted, I was around like-minded conservative thinkers but the difference was they were expressing their opinion, not telling me what to think or do.
The agenda included elected politicians, cabinet officials (current and former), authors and policy experts and even the President and Vice-President.
The results of the chosen speakers overarching themes in my estimation are as follows:
