Posted on 01/27/2014 4:36:55 AM PST by Kaslin
Have you noticed how the Establishment invents a lot of special rules that only seem to apply to conservatives? Have you noticed how these rules always involve preventing conservatives from winning? And have you noticed how these rules never, ever seem to apply to our enemies?
Take the imbroglio over Wendy Davis, the pride of Harvard Law School and the scourge of fetuses everywhere. Turns out her story of pulling herself up by her stiletto straps was a bit more complicated than it initially appeared. And by a bit more complicated, I mean it appears to be a miasma of distortions, omissions and outright deception.
That is, if the left wing mainstream journalist who wrote it is accurate. I mean, we cant know for certain if the older, established husband she married was telling the truth when he said she dumped him and her kids the day after he finished paying for that Harvard Law School education we keep hearing about, nor can we know if his initial legal claim of adultery was accurate.
Apparently now its unfair to mention the possibility that Wendy Davis, who expects the citizens of the Lone Star State to trust in her character enough to elect her governor, might be a gold-digging user who tosses aside those closest to her when they become inconvenient to her personal agenda. That would seem important information to know about someone I was being asked to rely upon to represent my interests.
But remember, sexism is holding a liberal woman to the same standards of integrity as a man. Think of the MSNBC coverage if Sarah Palin who was raked over the coals for keeping her child was accused of a tenth of Wendys perfidy. Theyd probably even preempt Lock-Up.
So we conservatives are supposed to be silent about the faux heroine in tennis shoes who valiantly fought against the peril of babies being born, about the women whose face launched a thousand Manhattan fundraisers, about the newest feminist icon and symbol of just what a woman can do when her soon-to-be ex is writing the checks.
The rules say we must to be silent, that talking about her is somehow not understanding womens stories. Gosh, the last thing wed want to do is not understand a womans story, whatever that means. We better just sit, quiet and obedient. Wed better obey the Establishments rules.
Their rules. The rules that keep them in power. The rules that didnt apply when the NYT ran a barely sourced hit piece on John McCains alleged affair during his campaign. Those rules.
Nah. The hell with their rules. Wendy Davis sounds like a terrible person who will treat her constituents with the same disregard that she treated her kids and Im glad theres a conservative media out there to do the job the mainstream media only does on conservatives. Wendy Davis is the power-hungry, hypocritical, elitist face of modern liberalism.
Theres another rule we didnt hear about until Chris Christie stopped haranguing conservatives long enough to explain why his administration thought it was cool to abuse the public for its own personal amusement. Apparently, were supposed to offer our credibility in support of Christie in his time of need. Hes a Republican you know, and the rules say that when a Republican moderate needs conservatives, we conservatives are duty bound to come running.
Vice versa? Not so much.
So well get right on that.
Trusting in Christie not to stick us in the back by having some new revelation come out right after we stand up for him seems like a solid strategy. We can totally expect Christie to repay us with support and loyalty in the off chance that no Twitter direct message surfaces reading Sure hope the toll lane closure I ordered doesnt slow up the Dominos guy.
Just ask President Romney about Christies loyalty.
The Establishments rules also require that we stop demanding that Republicans who claim to be conservative act like conservatives, support conservatism and, you know, be conservative. The rules are there because this short-sighted insistence by conservatives on conservatism is somehow certain to prevent the success of conservatism. We conservatives are just too unsophisticated to understand that true conservatism will only be achieved by a strategy of surrender, compromise and acquiescence to expanded government power.
Dont fight amnesty! Dont you know that by fighting amnesty youll ensure that people who will never, ever vote for us will never, ever vote for us? Of course, defeating amnesty also means they will never, ever vote for our opponents either, but that subtle insight doesnt seem to get much play.
Dont get upset that Republicans went along with slashing our active duty military retirees pensions! Dont you know that the path to political success involves trashing the only subset of governmental employees that has both a moral claim on a decent pension and generally supports Republicans? The smart play for the GOP was picking on vets instead of any other beneficiaries of a government that pays money to losers for sitting on their ample bottoms watching Judge Judy all day, that hands out piles of cash to Democrat green energy fraudsters, and that funds bizarre performance art projects that combine flag desecration, hot fudge and sodomy.
The rule for conservatives is to sit down, shut up, and write checks except at election time, when they need us to come out and man phone banks, walk precincts and vote, vote, vote for the smug jerks who will later huddle with their buddies in D.C. bars laughing at how dumb we rubes truly are.
The rules say we need to just sit and take it. But we need to tell the Establishment geniuses what they can take their rules and do, and they wont be able to do it sitting down.
Yes I noticed and I also noticed that Ole Weepy does absolutely nothing. . . . .
-——a gold-digging user-——
If that were only true.
It turns out, Wendy is a law degree digging user. There is not hing worse unless it is a Tea Party condemning non christian Senator from New York
Look for the conservatives to break away in order to start the breaking of the GOP-e.
Lets just say that a number who are identified as conservatives have blown themselves and the issues they claim to support up with stupid statements.
But to the authors point, just watch Sunday morning shows especially the networks to see how weak GOPe types are.
Those Republicans (GOPe) never go after Dems or Dems issues, they mostly apologize for not being Dem. The only ones weaker than them are on MSNBC.
Break away and then what?
while I was still searching but not finding I found one upright man among a thousand, but not one upright woman among them all.
“And then what?” A profound question.
There has to be pin-point financial and political support at state, county and town level. Both parties are corrupt at the federal level. A third party is hamstrung by the system.
I don’t care if you go Democrat or Republican. Such labels are out of date. It’s Conservative vs. Liberals.
“Break away and then what?”
Drift away and disappear. Until conservatives get off their fat behinds and organize themselves into even a mediocre political force, that movement continues to become irrelevant. I’m anxiously awaiting the time when I see conservatives get organized enough to send a half-dozen of themselves to attend local village board meetings across the country to object to high property taxes. Maybe they can even drag themselves to school board meetings and mildly dissaprove that there’s too many commies and perverts in public schools.
It certainly could happen, and in time for the next presidential election, depending upon a variety of unpredictable events. This would take determination and persistence in the face of hammering flack.
The only measure of success for conservatives is the decibel-level of our opposition. Rather than avoiding such a libelous stew of discomfort, we will need to embrace it as the very measure of our effectiveness, the way of knowing we are over the target.
And the writer is correct that allowing our opposition to determine both the language and rules of debate is foolish. We must become willing to frighten the "independents" with the level of acrimonious debate that the only ones left to determine an election's outcome are conservatives and liberals. Our base is larger than theirs.
Would not surprise me if a new party is born down the road.
That may be happening in Tennessee. Report is that 100 people knocked on doors this weekend.The ground game plan for Joe Carr to Beat Lamar! is to ask likely Republican voters a short series of questions. We record and compile their answers.
We are identifying our base and will use that information to get out the vote in the August primary.
They treated Christine O’Donnell quite differently. Wendy Witch is a protected class because of one reason, her rabid left wing politics.
Do you favor such? What work will you do to make it happen?
Do you not understand that three way races against the United Statist Front guarantees their victory. Remember the 47%. Do the math.
She is a lying shameless skank like every other female "star" on the left, Hillary, Pelosi, Warren, Blabbermouth Shultz, on and on.
.......I could likely top your analysis of Miz Davis but would get totally banned so I will congratulate u on your very apt description of the woman!
Would not surprise me if a new party is born down the road.
...it’s never surprised anybody the numerous times it has happened in history...
Exactly right. There are plenty of "moderate" Republicans I wouldn't invite over for dinner because (just like the Liberals) I would have to hide the silverware and use plastic sporks instead.
In 2010 the Congressional RINOs were happy to welcome the energy of those who were TAXED ENOUGH ALREADY.
The opposite is true today.
The major change happened in 2012 and 2013 when RINO John Benghazi Coverup Boehner refused to appoint a Special Prosecutor for Commie Obamas IRS harassment of TEA Party Organizations.
By this single arrogant protection of Obama, Speaker Boehner became enemy number two for members of the TEA Party.
Additionally, the RINOs want to replace Obamacare with Boehnercare, Ryancare or RINOcare, which proves that RINOs support the continuance of the taxation punishment of working Americans by the illegal Commie mechanism of Mandatory Insurance Taxation.
Lenin would be very proud of both Obama and Boehner.
Any support of Democrats or RINOs is support of Commie Obamacare or its neo-Commie derivatives.
History has shown that most voters have made up their minds by July Fourth, and thus a Convention held after that date is pointless.
The best way to drum the RINOs out of the Republican Party is a massive write in campaign.
If we want to change the Political Party Controlled Voting System, then WE MUST USE THEIR SYSTEM AGAINST THEM.
Only Democrats voted for Obamacare, and therefore all Democrats are to be opposed.
RINOs propose fixes to Obamacare, and therefore all RINOs are to be opposed.
Suggested Checks and Balances on Doormat RINOS, Democrats and the Leftstream Media:
!.) Send no money to the DNC or the RNC.
2.) Hold a TAXED ENOUGH ALREADY National Party Convention on April 22, EVERY YEAR FROM NOW ON.
3.) Flood the RINOs taxpayer paid office staff with all manner of irate communication every Wednesday FROM NOW ON.
4.) Write in or leave RINO slots blank on election ballots.
5.) Remember that as of 1-1-2014 we are now a Neo-Communist nation, thanks to Obamacare and our own doormat Congressional Cave In RINOs, and hold rallies and marches to remind the low information voter of that fact.
6.) In 2014 we boot out the RINOs.
7.) In 2015 and 2016 we give the action-based TEA Party Numerical Constitutional Rating on every Republican or Independent Federal Politician.
