The Conservative Political Action Conference is coming up this week. It’s an event attended yearly by thousands of Conservatives and Libertarians every year. Well known conservative politicians, writers and activists give speeches and workshops over three days.
At the very end of the event comes the keynote speech and this year it will be given by Milo Yiannopoulos.
The Hollywood Reporter has the story:
Milo Yiannopoulos Tapped as Keynote Speaker at Conservative Political Action Conference (Exclusive)
The Washington gathering, known as CPAC, is the premiere event for established conservatives. This year’s speakers include Vice President Mike Pence, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, former presidential candidate Carly Fiorina and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, as well as media personalities like Lou Dobbs and Mark Levin.
None of the 60 or so confirmed speakers, though, will have more stage time than Yianoppoulos at this year’s event, which runs Feb. 22-25 at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center. The speeches will be broadcast live on C-SPAN.
Organizers of CPAC are set to officially announce Saturday the addition of Yiannoppoulos, whose Friday night appearance on Real Time with Bill Maher has been a hot topic among conservatives and liberals alike. On the show, he criticized HBO stars Amy Schumer, Sarah Silverman and Lena Dunham and addressed his well-known problem with actress Leslie Jones.
Yiannopoulos told The Hollywood Reporter his CPAC presentation will focus on his “experiences in America battling feminists, Black Lives Matter, the media, professors and the entertainment industry.”
That should be interesting.
We’ll keep an eye on this and try to post video when it happens.
