It is amazing that Republicans have won any elections in past years, with the vile and hateful “progressives” using Alinsky as their model for attack against the right. What the elites and the most genteel of our Republican brethren are about to witness and may have noticed in the past couple of years, is that we are not sitting back taking the lies of the media wing of the Democrat Party who are the best at putting forward that which they want to twist your brain with, while ignoring the truth. It isn’t enough anymore to expect that Democrats have the Country’s best interest at heart, they don’t and they haven’t for a few decades. You could probably pin the beginning of the end of the Democrat Party as loving America, around the time of Justice Thomas’s hearing, and then there was Bork, and it has been Alinsky all the time. To accept what the leftwing media is peddling to accept suicide for conservatism, they will always let the progressive Republican rise to the top with their help ie: McCain but the true conservative will be attacked from all sides of progressivism. I do believe Dr. Helen has it extremely RIGHT We Will Not Falter, We Will Not Fail, This Is About The America We Hand To Our Children
I read with disappointment Andrew Klavan’s post entitled “Why We Should Be Unfair to Herman Cain” in which he explains that it is the right, not the left who must be fair:
And yes, it’s unfair. But there’s a reason it’s unfair—a reason it should be unfair. There’s a reason we right wingers vet our candidates while the left adulates theirs, a reason we condemn our miscreants while the left elevates theirs, a reason our news outlets cover stories that the left covers up.
The reason is: we’re the good guys. We have to do what’s right. The left doesn’t. Sorry, but that’s the way it works. It’s the price you pay for defending what’s true and good, the price of holding yourself to a high moral standard. Our politicians have to be better than their politicians. Our journalists have to be more honest. Even our protesters have to behave with decorum and decency—and still suffer being slandered—while theirs can act like animals and commit acts of violence and lawlessness and spew anti-semitic filth and still find themselves excused and glorified…
Herman Cain is going to have to run the gauntlet, not just of a racist and dishonest left that wants to destroy him but of a fair-minded and decency-loving right that wants him to come fully clean and let the voters decide how we should proceed. The fight for truth, liberty and morality requires sacrifice and self-examination. The self-righteous quest for power over others does not.
The world is just as unfair as you think it is. You’ll never catch the devil hanging on a cross.
Bullshit. What Klavan is advocating is political suicide. He might as well have taken his playbook from Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals where Alinsky’s fourth rule is “Make the enemy live up to their own book of rules. You can kill them with this…”
Mr. Klavan, telling the right that they have to live up to some impossible standard while excusing the left is laughable. All it will get you is defeated. Do you remember the Fresh Prince of Bel Air episode where Will Smith’s Uncle Phil was running for political office? His opponent, the guy who played George Jefferson in The Jeffersons bad-mouthed Uncle Phil all over the media. The family told Uncle Phil that he needed to fight back but Uncle Phil stated that he was “not going to sink to that level.” He lost the election by a landslide. He did eventually get appointed to the office when his opponent died by the governor but that’s not the point.
I read the same thing she read yesterday and immediately thought bullshit too, but to see it so succinctly put was just awesome. I encourage you to read the rest of her take down of the genteel factions of the Republican Party!
