Legal Insurrection reports on Michelle Malkin’s explosive speech at CPAC:
Many speeches were given at CPAC this weekend, but one stood out from the rest.
Conservative author, activist and entrepreneur Michelle Malkin gave a fiery speech in which she reminded movement conservatives that they have been repeatedly betrayed by the Republican Party.
Malkin began her speech by saying:
“It’s not people outside the party that have thrown the conservative grassroots base under the bus. It’s the people who have paid lip-service to limited government while gorging on it.”
She was only getting started. In the course of her seventeen minute speech, she went after Republicans for the Gang of Eight, Common Core, cronyism, immigration and more.
She slammed the party elites who smear and sneer at the conservative grassroots as fringe while pretending to support causes they care about at election time.
When it came to Common Core she named names, singling out John Kasich for claiming he believed in local control of education. About Bush, she said:
“There are three reasons why Jeb Bush failed. His last name, his support for amnesty and his cheer-leading and cashing in on Common Core.”
This was the first time Malkin has spoken at CPAC in 13 years and it was well worth the wait. Once you start watching this, you won’t be able to stop.
