Tom Tancredo defends Robert Vandervoort of Pro English.


The courageous former US representative from Colorado lashed out against the SPLC and other far-left hate mongers for their attacks on Robert Vandervoort.

Vandervoort is a Chicago area attorney who will be speaking at CPAC this year.

Conservatives are in danger of letting left wing groups define their own agenda. A slew of far left groups led by Al Sharpton, the Southern Poverty Law Center, and the People for the American Way are attacking for CPAC for having a panel featuring immigration and financial journalist Peter Brimelow and Robert Vandervoort of Pro English.

Lacking from these attacks is anything that either man actually said themselves. Instead most smears consist of nothing more than a long web of supposed connections to “white nationalist” groups are made. The worst thing they could come up with against Robert Vandervoort was that he allegedly affiliated with a group called Chicago Friends of American Renaissance that was allegedly affiliated the Council of Conservative Citizens. Then a controversial statement that appeared on the Council’s website is shown.

It is also important to note that these attacks have nothing to do with Pro-English or Peter Brimelow. They are only being made because three of the four major GOP presidential candidates—Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum, and Newt Gingrich—are speaking at CPAC. In effect, the media is attacking Romney, Gingrich, and Santorum for speaking at a conference with dozens of speakers, a couple of whom are allegedly associated with a group that once associated with a group that is supposedly racist. At the same time, they ignore direct links Obama has to anti-American racists like Jeremiah Wright and terrorists like Bill Ayers.

As Ann Coulter notes in her book Guilty, “[E]ven assuming everything the Southern Poverty Law Center says about it is true,” the Council of Conservative Citizens “does not hold a candle to the racism of Obama’s Trinity United Church of Christ. Obama was married by Reverend Wright, his daughters were baptized by the Reverend Wright. Obama gave his second autobiography the title of one of the Reverend Wright’s sermons. And yet after decades of majoring in Guilt by Association , liberals were indignant when an ad on cable television linked Obama and the Reverend Jeremiah Wright Jr. “

One of Peter Brimelow’s best known quips is that the new meaning for a racist is anyone who has won an argument with a liberal. This fact does conservatives no good when they run away from a battle as soon as someone screams “racist.”

Congressman Steve King (R-IA), who joined the panel with Vandervoort and Brimelow, was confronted by a reporter afterwards with the claim that the two were “white nationalists.” As Dave Weigel reported in Slate, “When told that the white nationalist designation had come from the Southern Poverty Law Center, King laughed. ‘I wouldn’t take them seriously,’ he said. ‘No, not at all.’”

Note: The SPLC has an annual budget of $15 million dollars. Each month, sometimes hundreds, of major media outlets give them free publicity and posts links to their website. The SPLC has dozens of full time employees and dozens more unpaid interns. Despite a constant stream of free advertisements for the SPLC, this website receives more American visitors than the SPLC website. This website consistently receives a better US Alexa score than the SPLC website. We usually receive an international score almost as high as the SPLC website. The CofCC has no full time employees and when when we get press, the media outlets never link to our site like they do for the SPLC. The SPLC calls us “extreme.” However, despite several paid full time employees working on their website and millions worth of free advertisements from the media, our website has a bigger American audience than theirs. If we are “extreme” what does that make them? Ultra-super-fringe-extreme?
