Robert Spencer, Director of Jihad Watch, participated Saturday in Breitbart News' wide-ranging "Uninvited" panel on the final day of the annual CPAC. Covering issues from crony capitalism, global jihad and the global persecution of Christians, the "Uninvited" panel was the only opportunity CPAC attendees had to discuss several issues critical to our national security.
Spencer's remarks were framed around the provocative title, "Why I'm Not a Conservative." The title was toungue-in-cheek, of course, as Spencer has a long history in conservative activism, devoting much of his career to defending the constitution. Because his focus is on the threat to the constitution from the imposition of Islamic Sharia Law, however, his work has been unwelcome at recent CPAC gatherings.
Spencer noted that, in recent years, discussing the threat Sharia Law poses to our basic freedoms, "is suddenly that's so toxic, that's so controversial, that's so evil that they only way I can get here, even to the Conservative Political Action Conference is on a panel called the 'uninvited.'"
