The Most Important Conference of the Year:

Preserving Western Civilization

In this age characterized by racial socialism, pseudo-intellectual anti-Semitism of the Left and the Right, and Jewish mediocrity, ever fewer people have both the intellectual capability and, even more important, the requisite moral courage to speak on the forces threatening to extinguish Western Civilization. From February 6-8, much of that remnant will convene the first Preserving Western Civilization conference. Baltimore’s Four Points Sheraton BWI Airport Hotel will showcase big brains, and even bigger hearts.

Speakers include:

Have a good time at the conference. I had signed up and had hoped to meet you in person. Sadly, work has prevented me from attending.

The conference was great. I'm sorry you couldn't attend, but I understand. I'm able to attend at most one conference per year, and I always hear from friends and acquaintances who had planned on attending but couldn't, due to work or family obligations. Hopefully, we'll meet not too long down the road.
