CPAC attendees confront a white nationalist [VIDEO]

White nationalist Jamie Kelso went to CPAC last week hoping to get some converts. Instead, he got an earful from some conservative activists who sent him packing. In a video shot by Eddie Becker, Kelso engages in a lively discussion with younger CPAC attendees and Ron Paul supporters who let him know that racism is not welcome in the conservative movement.

After one young attendee refers to Kelso as a “Paultard” – an insult often leveled used by some movement conservatives to describe the Texas congressman’s more outré supporters – several Paul fans demand that Kelso’s “Campaign for Liberty” buttons be removed. Kelso eventually complies before making a hasty exit from the building.

At nearly 15 minutes, it’s a long clip still worth watching in full. A small bonus: footage of Hot Air’s Ed Morrissey mulling about in the background.

    I am glad that I did not see that guy. The guy who called the other fellow a “jackass” was causing trouble all around. Everywhere (mild exaggeration) I turned he was berating people and telling them how dumb and uneducated they were if they took a different view (gotta love this flavor of Paultard). Of course he was no Oppenheimer himself (not by a long shot).

    i love watching this… the racist guy is trying SO HARD to sound smart… he’s trying to come up with logical arguments, he keeps going on and on… but i love the people arguing against him, they were awesome!! the guy who started talking at 9:23, his statement was great!

    look at 11:13, “if you were to look into your genetic code…” that part. the racist says “there are no races”

    honestly that’s actually kind of true. race is not very biological, contrary to popular belief. it’s largely socially constructed. if you look at genetic variations, racial groups don’t have differences from each other. what i mean by that is, you can have two white people with more genetic differences than one of those whites and a black!!

    that is one of the few useful things i learned in school, haha. that racial divisions of people are kind of arbitrary and meaningless. i can’t explain it very well but it’s true.

    lol then the racist says “we’re all white”… my thought was, no, no, you don’t get it, we’re all HUMAN!!

    then he says that… but then he again makes a case that whites are superior… wow he almost got something right then turned his back on it.

    oh and this was funny:

    “dont call him a paultard.”

    “i can call him what ever want.”

    “then i can call you a jacka**” “i can call you a cock sucking piece of s***”

    XDDDDDDDD

    The film is doctored. We all know conservatives are all bigots and would accept this man in their fold with open arms. Or so we have been told over and over again. Is there hope for fair reporting on the conservative movement?

    If he wants to hang around with bigots he needs to go to an NAACP convention.
