Breitbart News had a tremendous presence at CPAC on Thursday, which culminated with an announcement that Breitbart News will host “The Uninvited”, on Saturday from 1 p.m – 3 p.m in National Harbor rooms 4-5. The bold, two-hour discussion will touch on controversial topics like illegal immigration and radical Islam with speakers such as Pamela Geller and former U.S. Attorney General Michael Mukasey and will be heavy on audience participation to encourage as many voices as possible in the debate.
On Thursday at annual conference, Breitbart News Editor-in-Chief Joel Pollak addressed CPAC to break down President Barack Obama’s attacks on the First Amendment immediately after the Benghazi scandal and America’s foreign policy after Libya. Andrew Breitbart’s legacy was discussed and tributes and cocktail parties in his honor were held throughout the afternoon and evening at CPAC. Larry Solov and Steve Bannon led discussions about Breitbart’s enduring legacy and the conservative movement he continues to influence. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) paid tribute to the late media mogul Andrew Breitbart at Blog Bash.
Breitbart News Editor-at-Large Larry O’Connor interviewed a host of people–like Jenny Beth Martin of the Tea Party Patriots–about where the conservative movement is going. Pat Caddell blistered Republican consultants and what he called their racketeering on a panel. Breitbart News’s Kerry Pickett and Matthew Boyle, along with director Stephen K. Bannon, were on a panel discussing Bannon’s blockbuster movie, “District of Corruption.” And Breitbart News Editor-at-Large Ben Shapiro electrified CPAC while discussing how the Obama administration, the mainstream media, and the institutional left bullies conservatives to silence and threaten them so liberals can advance their political agendas.
