[ Click above to embiggen: isn’t it time to admit the go-along-to-get along garbage just doesn’t work out for the best? ]
We live in an apartheid state, where the institutional Left controls the government of our country…despite Leftists themselves being a small minority (around 22% or so) of the population. People who consider themselves “conservative” account for almost 70% of the population, regardless of what party they affiliate with. But, the Left wins the Culture Wars because Leftists are disciplined, committed to victory, and count on conservatives doing incredibly stupid things every day that Democrats just LOVE. Here are ten things you need to permanently stop doing — starting today — because each of these simple things is just like mailing a $1,000 check to the DNC to further their efforts in the Culture Wars:
10. Using the word “liberals”. There’s just no nice way for me to say this, but if you are using the word “liberals” in conversation, in anything you write online, or are even thinking it when referring to Democrats you are a complete and total idiot.
Democrats LOVE being called “liberals”…and, in fact, large sums of money have been spent focus-group testing this word…because low-information voters who have no understanding of political issues react positively to hearing the word “liberal”. It sounds open-minded, positive, and kumbaya to them. Even if you scream it with what you believe is pure acid and venom in your voice, an independent voter will still think good things about Democrats because “liberal” is a happy, fun, positive word to them. Focus groups do not lie. Companies and entire industries live and die by them…and political parties depend on them for national victories.
We know the institutional Left is draconian, close-fisted, and determined to control every aspect of our lives via aggressive government regulation and intimidation efforts using agencies like the IRS and NSA as anti-American goon squads and enforcers of the Left’s iron will. But, to independents and low-information voters who don’t pay much attention to politics, the word “liberal” conjures images of running through fields of posies being tickled by butterflies. Democrats are thus able to cloak their real agenda behind this hippy-drippy front…and idiot conservatives HELP THEM masquerade like this by parroting the specifically-designed branding that the institutional Left has chosen for itself.
My boyfriend Justin’s mother CarolAnne refuses to stop using the word “liberal” though, because she says “I know what it means and I think it’s an insult to be called that”. CarolAnne is one of the most stubborn people you will ever meet…and she refuses to see that it doesn’t much matter if conservatives think “liberal” is a dirty word, since it’s really moderates and independents whom Democrats are targeting with this branding effort. CarolAnne can think “liberal” is a pejorative…but her neighbor, LucyBelle down the road (who doesn’t follow politics much), thinks it’s a nice word and she feels good about herself for voting for “the liberal”…because that must mean she is a big-thinker and is open-minded. The tee-vee says that conservatives are backwards but “liberals” are good and “progressive” and LucyBelle wants to feel like a big smarty for doing what the tee-vee told her. See how that works?
You’re an idiot to ever help Democrats by using their chosen terminology for themselves…because you are encouraging low-information people like LucyBelle to keep voting Democrat…since doing that makes them feel good about themselves (despite the ruinous effect it has on their lives and pocketbooks). CarolAnne enjoys reminding me that Ann Coulter, Rush Limbaugh, and the writers at Breitbart.com use the word “liberal” all the time — and I think they, too, are foolish to do that.
I adore Coulter about 90% of the time, but you need to understand that her brand is all about preaching to the choir…and she’s not much concerned with winning any elections or getting independents and moderates to sever their emotional affiliations with the Left. Coulter’s brand is based on railing against “liberals” because the people who buy her books enjoy hearing the word “liberals” and it’s an instantaneous way for her to get their attention. The thing she’s not much concerned with is the fact that there are tens of millions of people out there who don’t know what Coulter is so angry about, because being “liberal” sounds like a good thing to them. She’s actually leaving money on the table and doesn’t realize it, because if she was railing against “Leftists” or “lefties” I bet she’d sell even more books. I really wish she’d come out against the word “liberal” and launch a second act to her career dedicated to its elimination…because that would send the DNC into seizures of panic as its entire 30-year branding campaign would be annihilated in one swoop.
I think Rush Limbaugh is a national treasure and admire him immensely…but he needs to stop using the word “liberal” too…and should excoriate any conservative pundit or writer who calls Democrats this. I keep hoping one day he eliminates the word “liberal” from his lexicon, because he’s the only person alive who could put a stop to conservatives consistently helping Democrats’ brand management this way. But, I think there’s a part of Rush that is doing what Coulter does…and it’s catering to their audiences (who enjoy saying the word “liberal”). I wish he’d be more strategic and would make it one of his Action Items to get people to see that stamping out the word “liberal” in conservative usage would send Democrats into a panic. They honestly wouldn’t know what to do if they lost this brand advantage.
Just try this experiment for a week: wherever you would normally say the word “liberal”, instead say the word “Leftist” or “lefty”. Following this convention, “liberalism” becomes “Leftism”. Not only will everything you say carry more of a punch…but you will also drive Democrats CRAZY by doing this. They are like vampires doused in Holy Water when they are called “Leftists”. Try this on Facebook if you have any Democrat friends. Start talking about the bad things that Leftists or Lefties do and just watch your Obama-voting Facebookers become apoplectic over your new choice of terminology.
People tend to ignore you when you are going on about “liberals” anyway…so why not shake things up and use “Leftist” and “Lefty” as your descriptors and start to change the brand awareness that people have of Democrats. You know how exterminators need to change the bait once in a while to get bugs to start eating the poison again? That’s what needs to happen here with the word “liberal”. Because, honestly, these people are Leftists…they do want to push the country towards socialism and eventually communism…and calling them “liberals” is like calling cockroaches “hug-a-bugs”. Just because you’re a fool who likes giving horrible things cutesy nicknames is no reason to keep doing what you’ve always done while bemoaning the sorry state of the country. Stop using the word “liberal” and start calling these people “Lefties” and watch independents abandon Democrats in DROVES.
9. Never standing up for someone who is being maligned as a “Ray Ciss”. This is something I am really sick of that conservatives do ALL THE TIME…because whenever the institutional Left fires up the “Ray Ciss” death star and aims it at someone, every conservative runs into their hidey-holes and stays out of sight instead of defending the Left’s latest victim. It’s pathetic, but one of the hallmarks of being a conservative also entails being perpetually terrified of almost everything in life. The pioneers, pilgrims, and Founders who built this country would be ashamed of a great many people who call themselves “conservatives”…when in reality they are just wimps who love elephant stickers.
I had a gym teacher in high school who once joked that guys should go around always wearing a jock and a cup…to be properly suited up and forever unafraid of any kicks that life might deliver, on our off the field. I just love that…and know there is a female equivalent if you transform that cup into an Amazonian shield, like Wonder Woman would have carried around with her. Life is brutal…and politics is a blood sport…so you best be FIERCE. The Left controls this country right now because Leftists are bullies and conservatives are largely wimps. I think it’s time to rediscover our pioneer spirit and rekindle some of the outspoken and brazen attributes of the generations who came before us…when men were real men and women could bring down a grizzly with a hair pin.
Being an American is one of the most awesome things in the history of the world…because we are a people who culturally take no prisoners and suffer no fools. The institutional Left’s been trying to change that, by making people afraid of politically-correct consequences for all manner of Leftist-ascribed offenses. This weekend we’re watching the tee-vee cooking host Paula Deen being raked over the fires for admitting to saying the word “nigger” back in 1983 or so…when Michael Jackson was still alive (and black!) and the Internet was just a figment of Al Gore’s imagination. Despite being a Democrat herself, the Left needed a white woman to be screamed at for being “Ray Ciss” this weekend…so that black churches could talk about this evil, female, white devil at services today…which will get black people riled up as the Trayvon Martin trial starts up in Florida come Monday.
For some reason, conservatives have a bizarrely hard time putting pieces of a puzzle together like this. Nothing the institutional Left does in the State Media is by accident, folks. They build files on all sorts of people and drop stories on them when it best suits the narrative that the Left wants the Ministry of Truth that is our national media to push at that moment in time. This is a highly coordinated effort, with editors of newspapers, magazines, and websites colluding with the producers of television programs…and all of them, in concert, doing whatever they can each week to win that particular news cycle for Democrats.
Meanwhile, conservatives — who are a majority of people in this country — let them get away with it by never speaking out and calling the State Media on what it’s up to. I have to say that I have never particularly cared for Paula Deen or her style of cooking. I think she’s obnoxious and fake…and I’ve never bought a stick of butter in my life. But Deen is an American and a Christian and she’s under siege right now by the politically-correct enforcers of the institutional Left…and by Zeus I am going to do everything I can to help this woman refute the “Ray Ciss” attacks aimed at her by the likes of the Justice Brothers and the Democrats’ other race-mongering usual suspects.
Conservatives never come to the aid of anyone. I don’t get that. When someone is called a “Ray Ciss”, conservative pundits and writers go scurrying under rocks…lest they be called “Ray Ciss” too for standing up for someone like Paula Deen. As my drag queen friend Ophelia Payne would attest: Hunties, if you ain’t never been called a “Ray Ciss” by the overlords of the institutional Left then YOU AIN’T DOING YOUR JOB WELL ENOUGH. Upsetting these lunatics and making them come after you means you are taking their flak…and thus over the correct target.
Labeling someone a “Ray Ciss” is classic Alinsky Rules for Radicals (Rule #13 , the most important rule, in fact) because it completely alienates and destroys a person…and has always prevented anyone else from coming to that person’s assistance because people are so damn terrified of being called “Ray Ciss” themselves. I’m really ashamed of the site Breitbart.com today because they are not doing anything at all to call the Left out for this blatant use of Alinsky Methods…just to gin up controversy before the Trayvon Martin trial. If Andrew Breitbart was still alive I hope he would be ashamed of Joel Pollack, Ben Shapiro, Tony Lee, and the rest of those clowns over there too…because in his too-breif time on the national stage Andrew Breitbart would never allow nonsense like this to stand. I can clearly see, though, that Pollack, Shaprio, Lee and the rest are too afraid of being called “Ray Ciss” themselves…and so they say nothing in moments like this.
Aren’t you tired of that? Don’t you miss Andrew? He stood up for you, you know. All the time. Like her or not, I think you need to stand up for Paula Deen and help the “butter lady” weather the rancid Alinsky attacks being leveled against her. Time to start looking at politically-incorrect words that famous black people have used in their lifetimes and bring down someone like Oprah Winfrey, Morgan Freeman, Pat and Gina Neely, or the like while the institutional Left is gleefully carving up Paula Deen as the new poster woman for irredeemably “Ray Ciss” white Christians.
Whenever the Left targets a white person as a horrific “Ray Ciss”…I think this should be answered by similarly ruining the career of a racist black person. Tit for tat, “Ray Ciss” for actual racist. Those sure feel like Breitbart Rules to me…which I hope one day are evolved as conservative counter to the “Alinsky Rules” upon which all Democrats rely.
8. Always playing defense…and thinking “offense” is too offensive. Andrew Breitbart was effective and left such a void in his passing because he was the first conservative person who ever used the institutional Left’s Alinksy Rule Book against them. Andrew mounted offensives on the Left, often deep into the heart of their territory. Normally, conservatives just apologize for who they are and pray that no one on the Left notices them or calls them a bad name that day.
Is this the spirit this country was founded upon? I love being an American so much because I can look through a history book and see someone kicking ass against impossible odds on just about every page…up until the 1970s, when people in this country decided all at once to largely become wimps. I am a gay man in Chicago calling out the majority of conservatives on being wimps…and the irony is not lost on me. Seriously, if a gay guy is tougher than you, then you got problems.
For Hera’s sake, folks, grow a pair. I can’t help citing the Paula Deen example today because every time the institutional Left mounts an attack like this the conservative Right should fire back several volleys of its own. The State Media is maligning Deen as a “Ray Ciss”…which I see as a great and historic opportunity to talk about the real and actual racism directed against white people by blacks in this country today.
I think the topic of the day should be “Have we as a country really achieved equality on all levels, when blacks are the racists now and gays are victimizing Christians?”…instead of the other-way-around, which is what the State Media tries to make you believe.
Black people direct immense hatred at whites all the time, because they are taught by the Left in the public schools that they are eternal victims and that only the government can give them what they need to survive all the evils of the white devils.
Meanwhile, gays are indoctrinated in the bars and clubs of a place like Boystown that they, too, are victims and that only the government can save them from the evil Christians who would send them to concentration camps if only Democrats weren’t there to stop that.
This is seriously the sort of nonsense that is preached to the useful idiots of the “black community” and the “gay community”…and Democrats count on these institutionalized lies to maintain power.
Because conservatives never challenge any of this, it’s just accepted as truth by millions of people. I like to think that if Andrew Breitbart had lived he would have eventually turned his focus to mounting an offensive on the Left’s yoke on the black and gay “communities” to expose all of the lies fed to these groups to keep them under permanent Democrat plantation control.
Maybe even without Andrew around this can still happen…provided YOU start doing something about it wherever you can. It’s not offensive to play on OFFENSE in life and in politics. In fact, it’s actually the American way, using Breitbart Rules. What a sick irony that the anti-American Left understands this…while people who actually love this country behave like sad, frightened, Eloi mice always too afraid of the Morlocks to do anything about them.
7. Allowing closeted gay politicians like Lindsey Graham and Aaron Schock to be blackmailed by the Left into doing bad things to their constituents and the country. I think this is truly one of the stupidest things I see being done on a regular basis, and I just wish it would stop. Especially considering what Lindsey Graham has been doing lately in pushing the “Gang of Ocho” amnesty bill that will put millions of Americans out of work, bankrupt the Treasury with billions in new welfare spending, and create a permanent Democrat voting majority that will hasten this country’s lurch into socialism and communism.
Lindsey Graham is a gay man whom Democrats have been blackmailing for decades now. He is as gay as rainbows. He’s got Bette Davis eyes, for crying out loud. This fact would be obvious to Helen Keller if she was still with us. It is more than okay for you to talk about this openly. Because it is true.
Democrats have a file on Graham which involves all sorts of things that the institutional Left has documented about his sexuality and romantic antics while in Washington for all this time; word to the wise to Republican closet cases: the rent boys and male prostitutes working the Capital are not as discrete as their escort services promise they’ll be.
Closeted gay guys like Graham get in trouble because they keep lying and claim they are straight…and they live in terror of being outed by the Left and resigning in disgrace “to spend time with their families” (that they never had any interest until now of spending time with). The sick irony in all of this is that conservative people don’t care if someone is gay…but they do hate being lied to. Graham’s lying about being straight all these years is what would sink him, not the fact that he is gay. The other element of this that’s lost on Republicans is that coming out because of a massive scandal is different than just picking a day in June…say, for instance, GAY PRIDE SUNDAY…and just having every closet case in Republican ranks hold a joint-press-conference and shout “We’re here today! We’re out as gay! We’re Republican and it’s okay!’ while everyone in the State Media is busy reporting on pride parades.
Can you imagine the impact that something like this would have, since it would eliminate the Left’s ability to use Pride Sunday to bash Republicans?
If the big news on the last Sunday in June was all about Lindsey Graham coming out of the closet (FINALLY…at last, Mary!)….and bringing Aaron Schock and others with him…then there would be a lot of very angry Democrats fuming over the loss of two of their favorite sleeper agents in Republican ranks.
I’m happy to swear on a Bible in open court that I have personally seen Congressman Aaron Schock making out with handsome athletic men in the Chicago gay bar MiniBar…and I bet there are people out there who can testify to personally seeing Lindsey Graham up to all sorts of shenanigans at various parties in Washington, DC where gay closet-case Republicans socialize. I wish conservatives would demand these guys come out already…since being closeted leaves them vulnerable to Democrats’ constant blackmailing. A lot of conservatives have a hard time understanding this, so let’s break it down:
The Left has really been putting the screws to Graham lately to make him the face of Amnesty…and I wish conservatives would respond with a big SCREW-YOU to the Left by dragging Graham out of the closet, kicking and screaming and clutching his Bette Davis DVD collection if need be. I’ve been writing about this issue for years and always get emails about it from people who say “I don’t care if he is gay and if he wants to keep it a secret, so be it”.
What conservatives miss is the fact that keeping this a secret allows the Democrats to say to Graham (and Schock…and others like them) that “Unless you do what we say and push Amnesty, we will out you!”. And Graham, being afraid of losing his Senate-seat-for-life, does what the Democrats want…not because it’s what his constituents want or need, but because he personally is afraid it would jeopardize his cushy lifestyle to stand up to the Left.
This should not be acceptable behavior…but I think conservatives are so afraid of being called homophobes for addressing this that they just continue to allow closeted gay Republicans to be blackmailed nonstop. Can you imagine if the Soviet Union was still around and was blackmailing US Senators to harm our country because the KGB had files on them? I don’t think conservatives would stand for that…but for some reason when it’s homosexual blackmailing going on the conservative pundits and writers won’t touch the matter with a ten foot pole (of Lindsey Graham’s and Aaron Schock’s dreams).
Enough is enough of this already. Stop being afraid of the Left labeling you a homophobe if you stand up and shout “Lindsey Graham is gay as gay as ruby slippers and is being blackmailed into pushing Amnesty down our throats because Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid told him they’d out him if he didn’t!”.
So, why don’t conservatives just out him — and every other gay Republican out there — so we can sweep the ranks clean of any blackmail cases and deprive the Left of some of their favorite sleeper agents? No time like the present to do this…and no better month than “Pride Month” of June. Aren’t you sick of the constant blackmailing and its effect on the country?
6. Referring to Democrats as “progressives”, which is just oxymoronic newspeak and quite dumb. This is similar to conservatives using the Democrats’ favorite word, “liberal”, but I find it even more obnoxious. Do you remember several years ago, around 2005 or so, when fruit packing companies started referring to prunes as “dried plums” or even “sun-kissed plums” in order to sell more prunes to idiots? It worked! Sales skyrocketed because the branding changed…and people just loved eating prunes after they were able to call them “sun-kissed”, which was so exotic and fancy and romantic. They were still being marketing to constipated people and senior citizens as prunes…but on another aisle of the supermarket the very same fruits were being gobbled up by hipsters because they were “sun-kissed fruits”. It’s asinine, but that’s just how effective marketing works.
Every idiot who refers to Democrats as “liberal” or “progressive” should be dragged into the street and hosed down with cold water on a chilly day. Seriously. Ann Coulter included. Like a bad dog these fools should have the word “progressive” behavior-reinforced out of them. A lot of dummies at Brietbart.com write like this these days, to the point where I wonder if the site’s been infiltrated by the Left since Andrew died.
This is another example of how Democrats choose a word to make them sound better…because the average person has a hard time coming up with concrete reasons why “progressive” is a bad thing…since it includes the word “progress”, which means to move forward. So, Democrats set up a dynamic where they are marketed to low-information voters as the big-thinking, moving forward, “liberal” and “progressive” party…whereas conservatives are ignorant troglodytes who should be shunned and then shunted into the dustbin of history. Every time you see a conservative writer use the words “liberal” or “progressive” you need to start calling them out on it…while also asking if they are possibly a plant from the Left purposefully using the Democrats’ desired messaging to assist the Left’s brand management and marketing efforts.
5. Spending too much time in front of a computer screen or tee-vee and not outside in the world interacting with others. I love that you are reading this essay right now. It validates me as a writer because it means if you are reading this that I didn’t spend four hours on a gorgeous Sunday morning typing this for nothing. Since we’re friends like this, I like that you are understanding what I’m trying to say and that we’re in synch on this and other issues. But, I wish you’d spend less time in front of a computer or tee-vee and more time out in the world either observing or interacting with people who don’t know much about politics.
My boyfriend Justin’s mother CarolAnne is retired and spends all of her time reading things that scare her online, watching things that scare her on tee-vee, and then spreading her fears and terrors to her family members like she’s a zombie trying to make other zombies by spreading her virus. She does nothing productive with her life and I pray every day she snaps out of this at some point. I actually am considering using my birthday wish this year on her…and wishing that CarolAnne would take the information she’s culling from all of her online and tee-vee activities and find a way to coherently go out in her community and inform her neighbors about all the bad things the the institutional Left is doing to our country. If she just reached out to one person a day and told him or her about everything that was going on — in a non-scary and non-conspiracy theory sounding way — then I think she would be doings some real good in the world. Instead of, you know, freaking out her son so that I have to pick up the pieces and reassemble his sanity every evening.
Finding a way to reach people who do not read conservative sites or watch conservative tee-vee has been the biggest stumbling block to conservatives. The institutional Left, meanwhile, controls Hollywood and pop culture…so Leftism infects people who are watching sitcoms or movies…but people need to actually SEEK OUT conservative sources of information because these do not automatically come to them.
We need to change that. The million dollar question is “HOW?”.
All I know is that YOU play a part in this…and the part I play in it all is being compelled to tell you that over and over. What I’m missing is the next part, which is what to tell YOU to do about fixing all of this. I pray and pray that revelation comes one day. I think Andrew Breitbart was on the cusp of figuring that out before he died…and it’s like a scientist about to resolve the equations for cold fusion and provide free, stable energy for the world was lost right before he could finish his work.
We’re still here, though…and though we aren’t Andrew we can pick up where he left off. We can crowd-source this problem with other great-thinking conservatives and we can find a way to first undermine Hollywood and then replace it with something that promotes conservative values instead.
But, this is never going to happen if they only thing you do all day is read essays like this one on a computer screen or stare at the tee-vee upsetting yourself by the bad things that Democrats are allowed to do because too many conservatives never get up the couch and stop them.
4. Using the word “blog” and unknowingly undermining conservative voices on the Interwebz. I really want you to start paying attention to the words that the State Media uses…because all of them are purposefully chosen to achieve specific goals. Start noticing that NOT A SINGLE DEMOCRAT will ever refer to a Leftist pundit, writer, or “journalist” as a “blogger”…despite these people now mostly writing exclusively online (since more newspapers and magazines are folding every week). The Left calls these people “writers”, which is what they are…and the Left reserves the word “blogger” for conservative writers because that’s how the Left disparages these people.
Every time you use the word “blog” to describe a conservative website you are an absolute idiot.
Every time you call a conservative writer a “blogger” you are a moron.
You help the Left undermine these people when you call them these names…and, worse, you don’t even realize you are doing it.
The funny thing is, though, that the Left is not the only ones that play this disparaging game. I’ve actually seen other conservative writers refer to people who are not as well known as them as “bloggers”…because it’s a power thing on their part. They will only allow themselves to be referred to as “authors” or “writers”, but anyone who is not as rich or famous as they are must be called “a blogger”…because that means that person is not as important as the “author” or “writer”…and thus not competition for writing gigs or speaking engagements.
When you call a writer a “blogger” it’s like you are calling a gay person a “fag” or a black person a “nigger”. So stop it.
Not only is it insulting to someone who works hard to generate often FREE conservative political content for your enjoyment, but you are helping the institutional Left maintain the convention that “bloggers” are amateurs who should not be paid attention to…and that the only voices online that matter are those that have a Leftist bent to them and are pro-Obama.
YOU are actually helping Barack Obama on a personal level every time you use the word “blog” or “blogger” because you are helping him to marginalize and silence his critics. It’s like you send the Obama Regime’s public relations ministry a $1,000 check every time you do it. So stop it already!
And give any conservative writer you see out there an earful if you catch him or her doing it too…because they should know better…and they may actually be doing it for personal benefit as a means of kneecapping the competition in conservative writing ranks.
3. Giving money to the Republican National Committee. I happen to think the RNC has been infiltrated, because every cent sent to them appears to be wasted on consultants that end up losing elections for Republicans. Don’t you ever give a dime to the RNC.
Instead, donate to actual individuals who you think make a difference. I don’t make a lot of money these days, but whenever I can I send something to SarahPAC or Tea Party groups I like. I need to see if Allen West and Mia Love have PACs of their own, because I’d like to help those two where I can as well. Ted Cruz is my hope for the 2016 presidential nomination and I’m saving up to start contributing directly to him.
I would not give a dime to the RNC if my life depended on it, though. Just think of donating to the RNC like writing a check to Barack Obama himself, because the end result sadly ends up being the same.
2. Apologizing for being who and what they are instead of being proud of it. I’m writing this near the tail end of June, which is gay pride month according to Barack Obama (the man Newsweek deemed our “first gay president”). The “pride parades” scattered around the country this month are supposed to be about having pride in being gay and not being ashamed of being who we are as gay men and lesbians (and the assorted other niche groups along the LGBTQAI rainbow).
The institutional Left uses pop culture and Hollywood to shame conservatives into being afraid of taking pride in who they are…and that’s just wrong. Don’t let them get away with this!
Don’t be politically correct ever, folks. Life is too short for good people to do the Left’s bidding. There is a Benjamin Franklin essay from his satirical days called “Fart Proudly”, where he wrote a letter to some asinine and pretentious scientific committee advising them that they would better spend their time discovering ways for people to ameliorate the smell of their intestinal gases. The idiots receiving the letter apparently took him seriously…and in 2o13 I have no doubt that similar fools at various grant-approving entities would fund such a study with tens of millions of taxpayer dollars.
I don’t think a conservative person should ever be ashamed of anything about him or herself. Even if you feel scolded right now after reading about how you should stop using words like “liberal”, “progressive”, or “blogger” I hope you take this as it’s intended…as constructive criticism amongst friends…and don’t withdraw emotionally because of it. I see conservatives do too much of that, with the institutional Left forever causing good people to retreat into shells for fear of being whomped over the head with one politically correct cudgel or another.
Be proud of who you are…but be smart enough to never used words that benefit the Left. This is different from the Left telling you not to use certain words because they are “offensive”…because it’s just being sharp enough to see that in the year 2013 marketing and brand management is everything and to beat the Left we need to start outwitting them while never, ever doing things they want us to do.
Every day is a new chance to be the best, smartest, and most strategic version of yourself that you can possibly be. You know as a conservative you are right about how things should be run in this country and that the Left’s ideas are all bad and wrong…and proof of that is the simple fact that the Left can never win by using persuasion and reasoned argument; instead the Left wins using tricks, fraud, intimidation, bullying, and outright threats. The Left also counts on conservatives just making the same mistakes over and over again and always expecting different results.
Stop waiting for some miracle leader to emerge on the scene and fix everything. That person is not coming. However, YOU are here in the year 2013 when you are needed…and this essay has 10 things you can do right now that would make a big difference nationally if enough people did them. Why not give some of these a try instead of just accepting the old status quo?
1. Forever embracing candidates and figures the State Media tells them they need to support. This upsets me the most, because I often feel like Cassandra in Troy…knowing something terrible is going to happen but being unable to get anyone to stop it. I look at John McCain, then Mitt Romney, and now Marco Rubio and constantly wonder why Republicans allow the Democrats to choose their standard bearer for them. It’s just the height of madness. And it needs to stop.
I can’t stand Marco Rubio and hope Allen West will primary him for his Florida Senate seat. That awful man needs to be summarily booted from office for the push he’s made for Amnesty…since not only will this cripple Republicans nationally do to an influx of tens of millions of new Democrat voters but it will also put a similar number of American citizens out of work, including vast numbers of black people who will be then thrown on welfare since Spanish-speakers will usurp their jobs. Wages will be lowered across the board, while cost of living will continue to increase, and Marco Rubio will go down in history as the fool who helped Barack Obama permanently decrease the standard of living in the United States to second-world status.
Rubio’s an idiot and a tool who believes the State Media’s hype about “Republicans needing to get Hispanics to love them”. I have a news flash for all of you: Hispanics will never vote for Republicans en bloc anymore than gays or blacks will vote Republican. There will always be a few that are conservative (and they are usually pretty awesome people who are brave enough to stand up to others in their respective “communities”), but for now the institutional Left has won the identity-based voters game…and Republicans should not do what the Democrats want just because a useful idiot like Marco Rubio is currying praise from the Left for pushing Amnesty.
I want to tell you something about Marco Rubio that I hope you won’t forget: he’s an attention loving man who is very quickly losing his hair and he has serious psychological issues about that. He’s getting pudgy, too, and his vanity is getting the better of him right now…because he is eating up every nice thing being said about him by the State Media. This is precisely how John McCain behaves himself as well…the two of them must masturbate to videos of the hosts of MSNBC praising them for doing everything they can to backstab their constituents whenever Nancy Pelosi or
Hairy Palms Harry Reid calls.
For some reason, conservative pundits and writers are afraid to call Rubio out on any of this. I pick up a distinct sense that everyone thinks it is a waste of time, because the media has already selected Rubio to be the Republican who loses to Hillary Clinton in 2016. There is a lot of very real fatigue in conservative ranks from everyone who said the media should not be allowed to pick Mitt Romney as the Republican nominee in 2012…or that the media should not be allowed to pick John McCain as the Republican nominee for 2008. Seeing the media hand-selecting Rubio (or Jeb Bush) for 2016 is soul-killing on so many levels.
I’ve already told Justin that if Allen West challenges Marco Rubio in a primary that I want to do everything I can to help him, even moving down there for a while and living in the back of a car if need be…just to throw Rubio out of office for what he is doing right now with Amnesty. I wish the Tea Party wasn’t so afraid and traumatized by the IRS persecution and would rise up against this man…and hopefully derail his national career so that he’s never a viable presidential nominee.
Republicans need to stop allowing Democrats to choose their national candidates for them by way of the State Media. A man like Ted Cruz or Allen West or a woman like Sarah Palin or Michele Bachmann are the candidates that Republicans should be running…not the John McCains, Mitt Romneys, or Marco Rubios that Democrats force on the GOP.
I think the problem is that too many conservatives sit around watching tee-vee all day…and they start parroting things they hear, like “Rubio will help get more Hispanics to vote Republican!”. No, he won’t. By the time that Democrats get done with Rubio he will be an unfunny joke…just like what they did to McCain and to Romney. They’ll mock him for going bald, for being pudgy, and they’ll find all sorts of horrible things he did in the past that the Leftists will gleefully pummel him with…whether any of it is true or not. The preening peacock that he is, Rubio won’t know how to counter any of it….and his bumbling and ineptitude will alienate even people who currently still support him.
If you can’t scry into the future and see this will indeed happen then you didn’t pay much attention to the last two national elections.
I think Ted Cruz can take on the Left and win…and a combination of Cruz/West would make the 2016 election extremely difficult for Hillary Clinton and her black VP pick (either Corey Booker or (remotely) possibly Harold Ford Jr.) to win. I think blacks won’t be as enthused to come out and vote for a white woman for president if there is a black man as the VP on the Republican side of things. But, of course, Republicans stupidly won’t put West on the ticket and they’ll lose again as a result.
If you are sick of idiocy like this, you need to start speaking up about it. God gave you a voice and a whole lot of smarts in your head…so please start using them, along with all your other talents. There are so many little things you could do in some way each day that would slowly chip away the Left’s hold on power in this country…but you just need to start doing them. It’s kind of like eliminating fatty foods from your diet and doing a little exercise each day to start getting in shape. It’s hard to change old habits, but a lot of people do…and in no time they feel so much better about themselves and their lives…and the benefits of these changes make big differences over time.
Politically, the Republican Party has a chance to get in much better shape between now and 2016…but only if it starts making a lot of smart changes, starting with the ten simple things outlined above.
