The Capitol Skyline Hotel has chickened out. Never mind what I said about staying there if you ever go to DC.
Here is the sequence of events as I understand them. The first hotel canceled. Then a second canceled. Then a third hotel was arranged, but it was supposed to be kept secret only to be released a day or two before the conference. But the hotel somehow leaked out and the third hotel wussed out as well. Finally, the Capitol Skyline was arranged but has now chickened out.
I became aware of the situation after the second hotel canceled. When I first read about it my immediate thought was don’t schedule it at a hotel. Schedule it at some sort of public venue that can’t discriminate.
From what I can tell the organization primarily behind this anti-AmRen jihad is R.E.A.L. headed by the cartoonish Jeffrey Imm. I know Ed Sebesta, Morris Dees, Heidi Beirich, and Mark Potok always come off as caricatures of PC thought enforcers, but Jeffry Imm really takes the cake. Even Cultural Marxist guru Herbert Marcuse would be embarrassed by this guys ham-handed attempts at right-think enforcement. “Love is More Powerful Than Hate – Love Wins.” Really? What? Are we in third grade?
