    “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it on to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.” – Ronald Reagan, 1961 As we, the American people, see our rights diminishing and our Constitution violated daily, we have become alarmed. We will fight to preserve our freedoms, as Ronald Reagan warned us to...
  • MLK Event Excluded Conservative Key Organizer Of '63 March

    A conservative group which helped organize the famous March on Washington says it was left out of the seminal civil rights event's 50th anniversary celebration held Wednesday. The Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) was one of the six big organizing groups who coordinated the 1963 March on Washington 50 years ago. However, CORE says none of the event organizers at this year's remembrance of Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech invited anyone from the black conservative organization, particularly CORE's chairman and '63 March on Washington alum Roy Innis (pictured), to speak.

    When Dr. King began “I Have a Dream,” I was struck as if by lightning. It was akin to hearing Moses speak to the heavens. His speech was a defining moment for those assembled and for Americans watching television in living rooms across the nation. The March led to a Civil Rights Act of 1964 and a Voting Rights Act of 1965. In the late 1980s, I came out as a gay man and became increasingly involved in LGBT civil rights. I met Barbara Gittings and Frank Kameny, the mother and father of the LGBT civil rights movement. … Gay...
  • Sharpton Leans Forward to Blur MSNBC

    MSNBC obliterated the notion of separating cable-news hosts and their political activism when the network brass gave Rev. Al Sharpton a nightly show two years ago. It was just another day at the office when Sharpton held a rabble-rousing rally for Trayvon Martin in the afternoon and then covered it on his show hours later. But Saturday's rally on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial celebrating the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King's March on Washington was the most dramatic conflict of interest yet. Sharpton organized the rally (with Martin Luther King III), and MSNBC aired huge chunks of it...

    Washington Monthly's Political Animal ^ | May 6. 2013 | Ed Kilgore
    As readers have probably noticed, I’m on something of a campaign the last few days to train a spotlight on the revolutionary rhetoric and gun-brandishing of many Second Amendment activists and “constitutional conservatives,” which has leeched over into standard conservative and GOP messaging to an alarming degree. Like anyone shining a spotlight into previously dark shadows, I’m not always familiar with what I’m seeing. That’s definitely the case with Adam Kokesh, an Iraq War vet and omni-libertarian who is planning a non-violent march of armed citizens on Washington for Independence Day to show, best I can tell, that resistance to...

    I alerted Atlas readers that Islamists organizing and leading the "Islam on the Capital" mass prayer on September 25th had disturbing backgrounds and had made outrageous statements. I blogged on three of the leading players calling thousands of Muslims in prayer: Sheik Muhammad Jebril and Sheik Ahmed Dewidar, two Egyptians (home base to the Muslim Brotherhood); and prayer organizer Hassen Abdellah is a lawyer for terrorists.

Sorry it is up so late, our video editor was on his honeymoon. We should be posting several more videos next week, including some from the National Freeper Convention held that weekend in DC. It was an amazing series of events you will all enjoy.

    I attended the Rally in Washington this past weekend, and I assure you I am not a racist. When I came back and told some family members about my trip… Well, this is how the conversation went. “Are you a teabagger?,you must be a teabagger?” In which I respond “You must be watching some Rachel Maddow”, “Nope, are you a teabagger? That’s what you are called, right?”

    I titled this thread "Tale of Two Protests" because what I saw in Washington DC on September 12, 2009 illustrated a vast difference in liberal versus conservative protest content, values, and execution. To me, one of the most amazing aspects of this protest by conservatives was the character in a manner in which individuals expressed themselves. It was nearly impossible to find two signs that were exactly the same. There were many signs that expressed the same themes, same concepts, same bits of art, and sometimes even the same phrases. But with the exception of 20 or 30 signs that...

    It was surreal to step onto the stage and to feel the unity, energy, and absolute commitment to this nation on the National Mall yesterday in Washington DC. It was even more surreal to know that all who were there had come from every different corner of life imaginable in the United States. Nonetheless, we were honored to join Parcbench, the National Tea Parties, and every patriot who stood up on 9.12 for the future of America:

    Here is video of talk show host Mason Weaver speaking at the "Taxpayers March on Washington" today. Weaver told the crowd, "I thought you would want to hear a black man speak to you without a teleprompter." Weaver blasted Obama by asking the crowd, "How's that Hope and Change working out for you?" He said Obama wants to "Change" us from "Freedom" to what? Hope? He said, "If you have Freedom you have all you need." Great speaker! . . . . (VIDEO)

    NRO at the 912 March [Mark Hemingway] As journalist who wears his cynicism like badge of honor, to say that today's tea party protest wildly exceeded my expectations would be an understatement. I've yet to see a reliable estimate of the crowd size and the cops seemed bound and determined to keep any photographers away from any high vantage points, but I'd be shocked if it wasn't well into six figures. I've heard crowd-size estimates ranging from 350,000 to 1.5 million — the latter seems wildly optimistic, but the former figure would still be incredibly impressive.. ... So many people...

    Here is an awesome video showing the progressive gathering of the massive crowd at the 9/12 "Taxpayers March on Washington" today. You can see the U.S. Capitol in the distance, where the massive crowd marched to from Freedom Plaza. The video shows the crowd gradually growing and marching down the street to the Capitol. It is clearly a crowd in the hundreds of thousands if not millions. So far, estimates have ranged from "tens of thousands" to "1.5 - 2 million." . . . (VIDEO)
