Spencer Changes Story, But Still Defends Pro Koln - Update: Pro Koln Organizers Say Spencer and Geller Confirmed in Writing

World • Views: 4,512

Robert Spencer says he won’t attend the Pro Koln conference of Eurofascists, after waffling on it and smearing me for days with insults and ad hominem attacks. (Attacks that continue today.)

Meanwhile, at the website of Pro Koln, they still say Spencer is going to be the main speaker.

This website is run by the people who Spencer continues to defend at his website, denying their well-known connections to neo-Nazi groups and individuals. If they’re such wonderful people, and their ties to neo-Nazis are all lies, what’s the problem? Why wouldn’t Spencer talk at their little hatefest?

Who’s lying? Not me; all I’ve ever written is that conference organizers announced Spencer had confirmed his attendance. And they still do. Since Spencer is obviously in touch with Manfred Rouhs, maybe he should get them to clarify the issue on their website. Until then, I simply note that Spencer says he won’t attend the conference, while continuing to snap at me like a rabid chihuahua.

UPDATE at 4/26/09 9:37:37 am:

In his latest tirade against me, Robert Spencer threatens to attack me physically:

(Buckley’s sage advice to Gore Vidal comes to mind at this point.)

Spencer is referring to this:

After Buckley responded to Vidal’s argument by stating that Vidal’s position was “so naive” and saying of the protesters “some people were pro-Nazi”, Vidal called Buckley a “Crypto-Nazi”, to which Buckley replied, “Now listen, you queer, stop calling me a crypto-Nazi or I will sock you in your goddamn face, and you will stay plastered.”

UPDATE at 4/26/09 10:01:46 am:

Here’s the latest update at the Pro Koln conference website (translation by Cato the Elder):

The unbelievably malicious campaign in the USA, despite obvious forgeries (see above), has unfortunately not missed its mark: The two American Islam critics Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer are currently under massive pressure and have therefore regretfully retracted their written agreements [to attend the conference] - but at least they continue to actively defend pro Köln and the Anti-Islamization Congress.

So according to the fascist organizers, both Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller agreed in writing to speak at the conference.

This follows days of obfuscation and personal attacks by both of these people, trying to hide the fact that they did confirm their attendance at the Pro Koln hatefest. They only canceled after it became very clear that their associations with Eurofascists would not go unnoticed.
