CPAC Hungary: It's All Over But the Nazi Armbands

In a "brain-melting" confluence of authoritarian crackpottery - Jews as "excrement," Romas as "animals" - America's right-wing confab CPAC just spread their malignant wings abroad for the first time to gather in Viktor Orbán’s Hungary, an anti-democratic bastion righteously battling "the woke revolution" in the name of God, nation, family and "Western civilization," aka old white men. Somehow - WTF - the demented meetup got startlingly little press. But take note: The event marked "the American right wing stating as openly as it ever has that fascism is its goal."
