Et Tu, CPAC?

It began with a welcome to country? Seriously? Look out next year for drag queen story hour.
Tony Abbott delivered the keynote address and was also given an enthusiastic greeting, which prompted him to lament that more of the attendees did not live in the electorate of Warringah. During the pandemic hysteria, Abbott was very circumspect in his treatment of the disastrous decisions made by the Morrison government while it was still in office, and more credit to him for that, but he clearly no longer feels constrained and made some cogent points.
Constrained? I’m struggling to understand why he would deserve credit for keeping, er, mum.

    I was there, the whole two days and dinner on Saturday night. It was fabulous, a wonderful time, enjoyed every minute.

    Re. the Welcome to Country, yes, I was surprised. However, to be fair though to CPAC, they’d originally booked the conference facility at Luna Park but, due to pressure from a few activist scum, Luna Park pulled the pin. So, they were able to book the International Conference Centre (ICC) at Darling Harbour, a facility owned by the NSW state government. I’m pretty sure it is NSW state government policy that there must be a “welcome to country” and it was probably written into the ICC contract with CPAC. Anyway, it was an outstanding conference with many, many highlights…..the most spectacular being the session with the four Liberal amigos, and the audience erupted, like Vesuvius, shouting, yelling, hissing and booing. As the four were coming onto the stage, I saw Bernie Finn walk out. What was done to him by the Liberal Party is a scandal….an absolute scandal.

    Ah, thank you, Cassie. That explains it. Phew.
    And not one federal Liberal MP attended, according to O’Brien.
    What a surprise.
    I’m not seeing any good signs at all in the Dutton-Littleproud Opposition.

  3. Cassie of Sydney says:

    “And not one federal Liberal MP attended, according to O’Brien.”

    No, not one. Senators like Canavan, Price and Pitt were there, and they all spoke well but not one Liberal or National MP.

    There was a hint of Vesuvius erupting on Saturday morning where a video went up of Dom Parrothead talking about CPAC, and many in the audience started shouting, hissing and booing. I thought to myself, how interesting. The anger towards the Liberal and National Parties is palpable. Everyone I spoke to at the conference, and I spoke to many, all said that they didn’t preference the Liberal Party first back in May, instead they voted for minor parties.

    You reap what you sow. For so long the Liberals and National have spat in the faces of their supporters, I’m not usually one for the biblical punishment of an eye for an eye but on Saturday and Sunday, we spat back.

    So what you’re saying Cassie (attempted humour!) is that there is room in conservative hearts for a Conservative Party in Australia.
    Not to split the LNP vote but to totally cannibalise it and also rope in new people who really do believe in small government, low taxes, individual sovereignty, and the benefits of Christianity, democracy, and Western Civilisation.

    Yeah Morrison was a complete failure in having so few deaths etc.

    Why so few MPs. They want to win votes from ordinary punters not from people so far from reality

  6. New Chum says:

    Keith Pitt is in the lower house .

  7. bollux says:

    Just more evidence that the “conservative” parties don’t want to represent conservatives. Tony Abbott blew the biggest conservative majority in 75 years by trying to appease the Left the first chance he got, and for that should never be forgiven. Talks cheap.

    Which explains why Tony Abbott did so badly in 2013. Ooops, sorry, he did well, didn’t he?

  9. Terry says:

    No bollux,

    ‘…biggest conservative coalition majority in 75 years…’

    And therein lies the problem. It was never a “conservative” majority. Too many of them, elected under a conservative banner, were actually dripping “wets”; a fifth column of filth that persists to this day.

    Get rid of them, or get rid of the party – I don’t really care which anymore.

  10. Not Trampis says:

    only a mediocre talent could win so well because the ALP thought they could have infighting on so large a scale and still win. gosh the NSW right were soo wrong.
    As usual his lack of talent showed up and the liberals would have been massacred after only one term until they came to their senses and made turnbull leader.

  11. Boambee John says:

    only a mediocre talent could win so well

    Think before you hit the “Post Comment” button, pre-school failure. You are saying that a major talent could not have won.

    would have been massacred after only one term until they came to their senses and made turnbull leader

    The first eight words are an unprovable opinion, not worth the pixels it takes up. Making Turdballs leader was a complete loss of their senses, as his result demonstrated.

  12. Lee says:

    Massive logic fail.

  13. Lee says:

    only a mediocre talent could win

    Or, in other words, “Abbott was so mediocre and hopeless he failed upwards and was elected by a record majority.”
    Explains Albo’s election, except for the record majority part.

  14. Buccaneer says:

    How shit was Gillard, never won a majority, got pushed before facing Abbot for a second time to save the furniture. Then Rudd got spanked by Abbott.

  15. Syd Gal says:

    I attended most of CPAC and found it very interesting. Superb venue, great program, excellent presentations, short films, and powerpoints, fast pace and the ability to talk to a few of the speakers very briefly at the venue. I’ll be following up with some of the organisations represented. Wish I could have met Cassie! Former Senator E Abetz was in the audience. It was very interesting to see how the media portrayed the event. There was a huge police presence all weekend, but just quite young protesters there – only on Saturday, I think.

  16. Lee says:

    And not one federal Liberal MP attended, according to O’Brien.
    What a surprise.

    An absolutely damning indictment on the present day, so-called “conservative” Liberal Party.
    Any who failed to turn up because of the possible backlash from leftist activists and other whiners is a moral coward, lacking in conviction.

    The Liberal Party is doomed, unless or until it has an epiphany.
    But I don’t think it will happen.
