#4 I looked at the website for the New English Review. Seems like a decent group with some A-list writers.
I note this only to be clear that we support those who stand against jihad but stand against the neo-fascists and nationalists. We don't want to walk in the same path as the Vlaams Belang and the groups who stand with them.

#5 Agree, Steve. The good news in all of this is that more scrutiny will be placed on Negri and his group. Judging from the comments on the paper's website, Nashville folk aren't too pleased with the hotel management's handling of this.

#6 This group waited until the very last minute to cancel. Whoever scheduled the event should sue the hotel and its owners for everything they have for fraud. Not giving the schedulers enough time to find another venue, forcing the cancellation of the event, is personal vindictiveness engaged by the hotel management, possibly on instructions from "above". Not only will I boycott the Vanderbilt Hotel, but I will also boycott any other properties or businesses operated by the same investors.
