Pamela Geller, Breitbart: CPAC Joins the Leftist Social Media Giants in Censoring Conservatives
Here it is: the whole story of how, over the past six months, I worked to get a free speech panel at CPAC — the battles, their ensuing cowardice, and Terry Schilling, a particularly evil liar.

Co-opting my ideas (stealing, really). Terry Schilling’s organization (American Principles Project — the irony)  says they’re organizing the panel anyway, without either me or Hoft.
