It’s still one year later, and #NeverTrump is still mad that Hillary lost the election:
Conservative columnist Mona Charen attacked CPAC for inviting French nationalist Marion Marechal-Le Pen to speak while addressing the conference Saturday.
“I think the only reason she was here is because she’s named Le Pen,” Charen said during a CPAC panel on the #MeToo movement. “And the Le Pen name is a disgrace. Her grandfather is a racist and a Nazi. She claims that she stands for him. And the fact that CPAC invited her is a disgrace.”
That comment drew loud boos from the audience and jeers wondering why she was even at the conservative event. Several conservative commentators expressed outraged at Le Pen’s invite, claiming the young French politician is a “national socialist” and a false conservative.

“I’m actually gonna twist this around a bit and say that I’m disappointed in people on our side,” she argued. “For being hypocrites about sexual harassers and abusers of women who are in our party. Who are sitting in the White House. Who brag about their extramarital affairs. Who brag about mistreating women. And because he happens to have an R after his name, we look the other way, we don’t complain.”
All of these statements were met with vigorous boos and jeers from the crowd. Politico Magazine correspondent Tim Alberta reported that after the panel concluded, Charen had to be escorted out by three security guards.
As I keep saying, I wish these closeted social justice warriors would switch parties. They’d be much happier with the Democrats, and I think most of us would be happy to see them go.
