Young conservatives gather together in bubble to escape judgement over their beliefs and learn to be role models for others.

Throughout the building, like-minded travelers are gathering for a four-day Young Women’s Leadership Summit hosted by a conservative group known as Turning Point USA. They pack the Hyatt’s elevators and line up to meet their idols: Tomi Lahren, Dana Loesch, Kellyanne Conway. At the bar, they buy drinks they’d only recently come of age to purchase and lounge by the pool draped in Trump-branded towels.

This is a place where right-leaning women who feel under attack on their liberal school campuses can don their MAGA hats, profess their Ben Shapiro crushes and question the existence of the patriarchy without fear of insult.

Within this hotel, the young conservatives get to meet and hear advice from their idols, while also being protected for differing ideologies and opinions. 

Walk out of this conference room, through the door that locks automatically when shut, into the beige expanse that is the basement of the Dallas/Fort Worth Airport Hyatt Regency, and Kirk’s vision of a political revolution unfolds before you. The future is female. There’s the makeup booth hosted by the Conservative Political Action Committee, the pink posters that say “COEXIST” in letters made of guns.

Young women from 48 states have traveled here to listen to speeches by Jordan Peterson on political correctness run amok or catch a glimpse of Fox News host and Don Jr. dater, Kimberly Guilfoyle. They attend breakout sessions about building a #brand and developing right-wing Instagram pages. This is a place to learn how to become a conservative celebrity from those who have already made it.

And look, here comes one now. Even in a sea of blondes, even in her skintight camo pants, Tomi Lahren can’t blend in. She walks like a magnet through the throngs, drawing fans to her amid the “Socialism Sucks” posters and “Trump Girl” shirts. The selfie line is at least 200 deep, and when she makes her way onstage, the audience is so quiet you could hear a snowflake melt.

“I think if all of us stand up and make a movement out of saying, ‘Enough is enough’ about being treated differently because we’re conservative,” she says. “It almost sounds a little bit like a political Me Too movement. But I think if the liberals can stand up and say Me Too about sexual harassment and assault, why can’t we stand up and say Me Too about being disenfranchised as conservatives?”

This is what the people came to hear: they are not alone, they are powerful, they too can be just like Lahren. Which is, what exactly? She’s a political commentator and a staffer for a Trump-aligned group. But she’s more than that, she’s seen. She’s heard.

“It’s kind of freeing to come here to be surrounded by a lot of people who have the same beliefs as you,” says Reagan Tapley, 21, a senior at an “extremely liberal” college. “It doesn’t feel as terrifying to wear a hat that says ‘Make America Great Again’ because the odds are pretty low that anyone is going to come up and harass me.”

“I’ve never been in a scenario where I can sit in a room and voice my opinion and no one backlashes me,” says Alex Owen, 18, a recent graduate from a Denver high school.

So rather than have the courage of their convictions and the ability to stand up and defend their positions, these young people flock to spaces where their ignorance will not be judged, and they can worship at the feet of air headed Right Wing morons like Tomi Lahren and current Trump Jr. bed warmer Kimberly Guilfoyle.

Jesus if they play their cards right they may not only learn how to create a popular neo-Nazi Instagram page but they might get to fuck a Trump as well.

    Good grief; does she use her p***y as a holster? Does she realize that if it goes off unintentionally that any discharge will rupture her femoral artery and she’ll be dead in about a minute?

    Uh duh, you stupid bimbofreak, because being harrassed and assaulted isn’t exactly a choice, while being a conservatie tool is.

    Poor indoctrinated minds.
    Some of them will wake up. But it may take a few decades. But when they do they will be quite pissed.

    So “safe spaces” are okay when conservatives do them? Got it.

    And interesting to see Jordan Peterson on the agenda. I guess he will finally stop lying about not taking sides and “just asking questions”.

    This one has the tone of a fishwife pushing week-old mackerel. Shrill and demeaning. Mistakes nasty jibes for intellect. The best UNLV has put forth. Sarah Palin on the make.
