"The Conservative Political Action Committee announced Monday that it was canceling a scheduled speaker after it emerged that he made virulently anti-Semitic comments on Twitter.
"We have just learned that someone we invited to CPAC has expressed reprehensible views that have no home with our conference or our organization," CPAC said in a tweet Monday. 'The individual will not be participating at our conference.'
The identity of the speaker was confirmed by the journalist Ben Jacobs and other media outlets to be Young Pharoah, a rapper and activist.
Earlier, the progressive media-monitoring group Media Matters had published a report highlighting tweets in which Young Pharoah called Judaism a 'complete lie' and "made up for political gain," said that Jewish people are "thieving fake Jews."
He also tweeted that 'all the censorship & pedophilia on social media is being done by Israeli Jews.'"
