C4P at CPAC 2012: Breitbart & Bannon take on Lefty Blogger/Update: Videos Added

February 9, 2012

Police cars were conspicuously present around the Marriott Hotel in Washington DC’s historic Woodly Park neighborhood for the 2012 Conservative Political Action Conference– “CPAC 2012”.  Perhaps they were anticipating a violent encounter with those from the “Occupy Wall Street” ilk. After all, Occupy Wall Street (OWS) groups had sent warnings to the Tea Party—and the Tea Party had emailed supporters– that OWS planned to make a scene at CPAC.  Fortunately, from what I observed, the OWS crowd wasn’t around in any formidable way. I saw a lone person dressed up as Ronald Reagan, attempting to mock him, but not getting much attention.

Inside the hotel, however, one liberal blogger, Andrew Metcalf, who writes for the left wing website www.crooksandliars.com was at the panel discussion featuring Stephen K. Bannon, writer/director of The Undefeated, the documentary about Gov. Palin’s historic career in public service. Bannon was there with David Bossie, President of Citizens United Productions, along with Andrew Breitbart and www.breitbart.com writers Brandon Darby and Lee Stranahan, to preview upcoming 2012 films for CPAC credentialed bloggers.  One of the upcoming films exposes the real impetus behind “Occupy Wall Street.” Bannon played a powerful trailer to the film that is chilling.

But Metcalf was focused on Sarah Palin and The Undefeated. In the question and answer session, he prefaced his question to Bannon with his opinion, saying The Undefeated was “panned by critics and bombed at the box office”, or some such other nonsense.

Andrew Breitbart stepped up and asked the other Andrew a simple question: have you seen the movie, Andrew?

His answer: no. The audience, and the panel, roared, effectively letting him know what they thought of his commentary.

Afterward, I introduced myself to Metcalf, whereby he defended himself, saying that Gov. Palin “quit to make more money and become a celebrity.”

Really? Have you researched her record? What do you know about her record?

“Yes, I know that she was Governor for 4 to 6 years and quit in the middle.”

With that, I suggested he watch The Undefeated himself, read Going Rogue and gave him the C4P website.

    I was not looking forward to going to CPAC tomorrow.  I don’t know this election cycle has burnt me out.  I caught Rush on the radio playing clips of Romney — I couldn’t help, but say "You Lie"

    But, I caught Breitbart on C-SPAN and now I’m fired up.

      Just remember, they want you to be bombarded and depressed.  It has worked in the past but please seek strong like minded people.  The media and some right media has turned against conservatives.  They think they can beat TP out of the picture, don’t let them.  We are it guys, we are the Washingtons, Reagans, and all who have died fighting for our freedoms.  We must do this, it’s now or never, we must not let the future down.  I know it’s a lot of responsibility but what do you think our military are doing in that hell hole, we are just as strong and have it so much easier.  Stand in the truth, keep praying, turn the tv off if you have to, you won’t miss anything, you can go on the net and know what’s going on.  Please don’t stop.

    I watched Andrew on C-SPAN, he was great.   Hope C4P can get video.

    Saul Alinsky’s four dance steps are select the target, freeze the target, ridicule the target, and destroy the target with lies.  The intellectually lazy, Andrew Metcalf brought into the lamestream media use of Saul Alinsky’s four dance steps to malign Sarah Palin.  It is cool how Breitbart cut Metcalf down to size.

    Boy, these Lefties really are clueless, aren’t they?
    Good job, Jasmine and Breitbart!:)

      I’m not sure if it’s his full speech.  It’s 4 minutes long but man those 4 minutes are awesome!

    I found a video clip of the exchange between Andrew Metcalf and Andrew Breitbart, it’s on the Crooks and Liars website.   :-(       I won’t link to it…..

    C4P techies, I wish you guys would unblock China because of spam. Lots of spam comes from all over and blocking isn’t a solution. WordPress has anti-spam plugins to counter spam. Think of the disservice you’re doing to the Chinese who might wish to learn something about The Guv but are blocked from seeing her Facebook page. Yes, lots of Chinese read English. Blocking China for spam is like taking a sledgehammer to kill a mosquito. Do reconsider that block, guys.

      Perhaps add some captcha-function for Chinese IP-addresses?

        Whatever works, but to block a huge country like this?!

    Did you get the impression as I did that Andrew Metcalf is gay?  if not, then very feminine.
    Has anyone figured out why most of the worst vocal smear artists against Sarah are gay or lesbian? Or have sexuality issues? Bill Maher is one of those as he frequently has to pay hookers for sex because normal women can not stand him.

    what an idiot.

    What an a–hole!!!! That’s all I have to say about that Metcalf character.
