David Keene:

If we stick to principle, if we remember what it is we are about and what it is want to accomplish, and if we organize around those principles and stand for them, people will stand with us.”

Regarding the double standards of the Democratic Party and Obama administration, Keene said, “I find it ironic for example that they tell us that we should not ever judge all Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but at the same time they encourage us to judge all gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics.”

Keene’s full remarks are available via YouTube here.

Please note that the schedule is available on our CPAC St. Louis website under “Program.”

Founded in 1964, the American Conservative Union (ACU) is the oldest and largest grassroots conservative organization in the nation. For almost fifty years, ACU has served as an umbrella organization harnessing the collective strength of conservative organizations fighting for Americans who are concerned with liberty, personal responsibility, traditional values, and strong national defense. ACU defines conservatism, grows conservatism, and wins for conservatism.
