NPI@CPAC: THE “UNCONFERENCE”

Richard Spencer, Radix Journal, February 24, 2014

As we announced last week, NPI will be attending the annual Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, DC, which begins on March 6 and will stretch through the weekend. (Perhaps “crash” is a better choice of words than “attend,” despite the fact that we’ll be on our best behavior.)

THE PLAN

On Thursday and Friday (March 6 and 7), I will be listening to some of CPAC’s speeches and panel discussions and participating, when possible, in Q&A. If you see me in the halls, please say hello.

On Friday March 7, at 7:30 PM, NPI will host a dinner. Our special guest will be American Renaissance editor Jared Taylor, a man who’s been a lion in our movement for close to 25 years. NPI will provide wine for everyone who attends, to ensure a festive atmosphere.

Then, around 9 PM, we will retire to a hospitality suite, where NPI will provide an open bar and host an “unconference.”

The “unconference” idea is a response to fact that most people don’t attend conferences to hear speeches—they attend to connect with people. Thus, our gathering will be something like a free-flowing conversation. Jared and I will get the discussion started with some remarks, and our guests will take it from there.

We expect excellent people to attend, and we hope that some from the CPAC crowd will want to see where the real action is. (No doubt, we will be “unconferencing” into the wee hours.)

NOTA BENE

First and foremost, the gathering will be discreet to the best of our powers.

Our desire for privacy is one reason that we will not be releasing the exact location of the dinner and unconference until the morning of March 7. We will say now that the events will be conveniently located near the Gaylord Resort Hotel at the National Harbor.

Secondly, because of our discretion, you must register for our dinner and unconfenece beforehand using the form below. (This will be the only way we can alert you to our gatherings’ locations.) [Editor's Note: You can register at the original article link below.]

Thirdly, you should be confident that you can attend in an anonymous fashion (short of donning a disguise and voice modulator): no name tags will be issued; no recordings will be made; and all discussion will be strictly “off the record.” Our guests, we hope, will feel comfortable expressing themselves.

Fourthly, though we hope you’ll join us for the entire evening, we understand if you could only attend either the dinner or hospitality suite.


This is a chance for our movement to have a real presence at a major forum for ideas (and perhaps mug a few conservatives with reality). And more important, it’s a chance for us to network and talk about our future.

I hope to see you there!

    CPAC was started a long time ago to challenge the RINO establishment.

    Now it has been absorbed into the RINO establishment.

    • AndrewInterrupted

      CPAC tries to be the keeper of the conservative flame.
      But, it is a case of herding cats, no doubt. Too many egos.

  • D.B. Cooper

    I think there will be some members of the SPLC secretly attending.

    • blight14

      Sans doubt DB…………I also assume we can count on at least one $PLC maggot at the conference in April. HOPEFULLY someone will call them out this year.

        I attended the 2012 conference outside Nashville. Jared told us that Heidi Beirich had contacted him with the request that she attend. Jared refused her request. As far as I know there were no infiltrators except for one young guy from the Nashville Scene who wrote a scathing article. I might add that the NS is our local freebie run by hipsters therefore it really should be considered a joke. There was one other fellow who was filming for a local television station. Channel five I believe, the station that gave Oprah Winfrey her Affirmative Action job. Interestingly enough this fellow agreed with Amren about the rights of Whites.

    I don’t think that can be emphasized enough.

  • Martel

    It would be interesting to see the debate with any grassroots or GOP conservatives walking around those halls.

    • WR_the_realist

      I already know how that conversation will go. Here “MR” is Mainstream Republican.

      JT: Thanks to current immigration policies and differential rates of fertility, whites will soon be an ever smaller minority in this country, which is already the case in the bellwether state of California. Would you want to send your child to a majority black and Hispanic school, which is what more and more of our schools are becoming?

      MR: You’re a racist!

      JT: Do you believe we should end anti-white policies such as affirmative action and racial set asides in government contracting?

      MR: We need to get the black and Hispanic vote!

      JT: Blacks and Hispanics overwhelmingly vote for Democrats because they want big government. Lower class blacks and Hispanics want the hand outs and middle class blacks and Hispanics are often middle class because they have an affirmative action government job. Does it bother you that the business interests who want a cheap labor immigration policy are dooming your party to permanent minority status?

      MR: We’ll give the diversity enterprise zones and tax cuts! Then they’ll vote for us!

      JT: Is there any reason why white working and middle class whites should vote for you guys?

      MR: (Runs away… then, in the next room, away from JT): Tax cuts! War with Iran! Tax Cuts! War with Iran!

    Excellent idea.

  • wildfirexx

    Nice Try, but that was a lost cause….these people won’t see the threat to their racial identity until it’s too late.

    • Martel

      How do you know if one of those CPAC juniors didn’t Google Amren when e got home?

    • LACountyRedneck

      I don’t think it’s ever a lost cause. Every attempt can create a realist. Non-attempts create nothing. They stood there and listened. Others walked by and simply called him a racist. I applaud the guy.

      • wildfirexx

        Actually you guys could be right…the silent ones standing by may have been to afraid to say anything because they might have agreed with him…where as the vocal chorus just wanted to hear themselves talk. But he did seem to establish a kind of curiosity, where he kept a circle of young people interested in the conversation. It just too bad so many young people are oblivious to what’s really happening today.

        • LACountyRedneck

          True. Now plant a seed.

    • blight14

      Agree.

  • DaveMed

    Exactly. I’m straight as an arrow, but it’s clear to me that fellows like Richard Spencer are the key to drawing more people of my generation into the fold. James Edwards also has good presence.

    Good looks don’t hurt.

  • DaveMed

    The key – the key – is to not be anti- [X], but rather to be positive.

    Considering the venue – CPAC – I think that, somewhere in the discussion, our representatives should make the point that classical American values (limited government, natural liberties, the rule of law) are almost uniquely European values.

  • PvtCharlieSlate

    Neither. You euthanize them.

  • LACountyRedneck

    At 8:30 she says, “If they’re more qualified, then yes.”, after he asks, “Should Nigerians be allowed in Ireland?” So based on what she’s saying, Whites should be allowed in any non-White country if they’re more qualified to work there than locals. At least these Whites stood around and listened. Potential realists.

  • blight14

    That the descendents of those that founded this great nation have to go to such levels to remain ‘secret and hidden’ is sad indeed.

  • WR_the_realist

    That’s a one note rant. Apparently the sky will fall if some atheists attend CPAC. Contrary to what the linked article states, atheists do not “hate God”. You can’t hate something you don’t believe in.

    • Katherine McChesney

      “… atheists do not “hate God”.”

      I beg to differ. My Dutch brother-in-law claims to be an atheist but becomes loud and aggressive at the mention of “God” or “Jesus Christ”. He actually becomes violent in his demeanor. IF he didn’t believe in God why does he become so agitated at the mention of our Creator?

      I think he feels guilt and thinks that God has picked on him for everything that has gone wrong in his lifetime. Denial…well you know that stage of lying to oneself and others.

      • http://www.awpn.net/ Celestial Time

        Most of the atheists with the loudest mouths and making the most fuss are the ones who have recently broken away from religion. It really has nothing to do with being an atheist or not. People become more than a little irritated when they feel they have been lied to and manipulated for so long. The more selfless and balanced individuals usually mellow out and learn to accept that there are some things they can’t change in people. The more self-absorbed individuals will continue to believe that whatever they say and believe for that day is the path that everyone else must be following. This holds true whether one is religious or not religious.

        So the question of whether or not someone hates the/your/a God is a moot point. Most other atheists I know hate lies that are forced upon them by people who claim to have all of the answers in life.

      • WR_the_realist

        I am an agnostic. But I don’t hate Christians and I don’t hate a God whose very existence I’m uncertain about. And even if there is a God and I have a crappy life that’s no reason to hate God, since God never promised we’d have easy lives, and if I think it’s God’s job to give me an easy life that puts me in the dubious position of telling the Creator of All Existence what to do.

        Now there are some cantankerous atheists who do get all bent out of shape at other people’s belief in God. That’s not because they hate God, it’s because they hate the thought of other people believing in something they regard as foolish. I think they need to grow up. Spiritual and religious questions are not things we can resolve in an objective way, and different people will come to different conclusions.

    In Portland, OR a petition to prevent a Trader Joe’s from being built is being reviewed after the initial blocking. The store was to be built on a long vacant piece of land on Portland’s MLK Boulevard. The denizens of the black neighborhood there flatly stated that a Trader Joe’s would attract “too many white people.” The “African American Association of Portland” was meeting last night to discuss it after it was revealed that the contractor who would have built the project is black. But Trader Joe’s isn’t sure they want to build the store there after all. Maybe a Popeye’s would be a better bet.

    But what stood out to me was that no one has batted an eye at the obvious, no one! We’ve got blacks openly and hypocritically discriminating against whites and a black association that gets to meet and discuss black self-interest, promotion, protection and planning while whites nationwide only get on the SPLC hate list if they even try one of these things.

    • WR_the_realist

      If the Trader Joe’s is located on Martin Luther King Boulevard I don’t think there’s any serious danger that “too many whites” will patronize the place.

    • LHathaway

      Welcome to the 20th Century. . In fact, you pretty much defined it.

      Now it’s the 21st Century where we may yet fight back.

  • Whiteplight sees the Emperor N

    I love the testy little proclamation that Group X is destroying a way of life for Group Y.

    The invitations extended by the ACU, Al Cardenas and CPAC to American Atheists to have a booth is more than an attack on conservative principles. It is an attack on God Himself.

    American Atheists is an organization devoted to the hatred of God. How on earth could CPAC, or the ACU and its board of directors, and Al Cardenas condone such an atrocity?

    It makes absolutely no difference to me that CPAC and ACU have backed down and removed the booth. I am sick and tired of these games. I will continue to denounce CPAC, ACU and Cardenas.

    No conservative should have anything to do with this conference. If you do, you are giving oxygen to an organization destroying the conservative movement.

    He’s taking a stand for something important!

    Hey, never mind all of the organizations, groups, corporations and people directly destroying the viability and safety of the nation and its people, because we have people that could possibly destroy the Conservative Movement™!

    I’m dead serious when I say that I’m not sure who should be hanging from the gallows first, the Leftists or the “conservatives” like this.

    • http://countenance.wordpress.com/ Question Diversity

      I’d rather have an atheist racialist than a Christian egalitarian.

      Then again, I don’t run a Beltway Conservatism Inc organization who has in recent years gotten on the take from the el cheapo labor lobby.

  • Snakes on a Car

    Will Jared Taylor be walking around at CPAC? or will he only be doing the unconference dinner?

    • WilburnSprayberry

      Good question. I hope he walks around. He has the physical presence, charisma, and gravitas that would impress.

  • WilburnSprayberry

    FTR: Jamie Kelso is not only a committed WN, he’s a pioneer. He set up or helped set up many pro-white websites, and was instrumental in getting the movement established and going on the internet. But here he was the wrong man, using the wrong arguments, to do much good.
    I think numbers are important. If Jamie had had even one articulate wingman, he would have been more credible. I hope Richard won’t try to debate these people alone, a small team would be better. I can think of many young activists besides the Dream Team I mentioned who would do an effective job, such as Dan Poole, an internet journalist I met at the NPI conference.
    You make excellent points about the contrast between the working class and CPACers. And perhaps these entitled young folks are indeed too immature and still too heavily indoctrinated from their colleges. But I can’t help thinking that better arguments, made by the right advocates, might get through. What about the Sailer strategy? Explaining it and linking it to policies like ending affirmative action and reducing immigration to increase the chances of Republican electoral success would definitely pique the interest of this particular crowd.
    Finally, note the lack of historical knowledge amongst Kelso’s audience. They seem to exist only in the present, and the USA is for them only a libertarian business corporation. The tall young man who was Kelso’s chief interlocutor seemed sincere (and not as condescending as the others), but had a distorted view of American history. I think he might have been reachable if Kelso had thrown out some hard historical facts: that America was 90% white and had a immigration policy designed to keep it that way until 1965, that the Indians had nothing to do with the creation of the USA, except as enemies, and that the continent was, in fact, conquered by whites, just as every country in the world was originally conquered by somebody. And, as DaveMed said, that the institutions of self-government are of exclusively European provenance.
