Robert A Taft Club

Robert A Taft Club

The Robert A Taft Club is a conservative organization associated with Pat Buchanan's The American Cause. Named after United States Senator Robert Taft, The Taft Club was founded by Marcus Epstein in 2006. The Club holds occasional meetings with panelists focused on a topic of particular controversy within conservative circles.

In the past, meetings have been held on the impact of the Religious Right, race and conservatism, the social significance of the Duke Lacrosse Case, the Right in Europe, and the future of the conservative movement.

The Taft Club has no official political affliation; however, its speakers and members are often described as paleoconservative, libertarian, paleolibertarian, and traditionalist.

The Taft Club has been highly critical of the Republican Party and in August 2007 held a meeting in which speakers discussed the possibility of the conservative movement ending their association with the GOP. The Taft Club has also been a venue for criticism of the Religious Right. In June, Doug Bandow spoke on the Religious Right's support of reckless, interventionary foreign policy and the Cato Institute's Michael Tanner on the Religious Right's role in the expansion of government. James C. Russell also spoke at the meeting.

Most recently, the Taft Club hosted Terrence Jeffrey, Richard Viguerie, Paul Gottfried, and James Antle III who spoke on the prospects for the conservative movement. In a more controversial meeting, the Flemish separatist party the Vlaams Belang discussed their opposition to Muslim immigration in Europe. More controversial still, John Derbyshire, Jared Taylor, and Kevin Martin debated the role race should play -- if any -- in conservatism. Just after the Duke lacrosse case began to unravel, William Anderson, Stacy McCain, Nicholas Stix and Duke graduate student Richard B. Spencer discussed political correctness, prosecutorial misconduct, and the contemporary university.
