Horowitz: Conservatives Must ‘Fight Fire with Fire’


HorowitzOriginally published by Breitbart.com

Speaking at the Americans for Prosperity Defending the American Dream Summit in Orlando, Florida, conservative icon David Horowitz, head of the David Horowitz Freedom Center, took to the microphone to encourage conservatives to “fight fire with fire.”

Horowitz, who grew up in a Communist family and then spent his youth as a Marxist leader of the New Left, gradually became a conservative after recognizing that all of the measures he had fought for were wildly counterproductive – and recognizing that the leftist movement he supported was not a movement of the people, but of the elites. “Historically the upper classes have been movers of radical change,” Horowitz said. “The French Revolution was initiated by French aristocrats; Karl Marx was funded and promoted by a capitalist factory owner. And the Obama socialists who today threaten our way of life are swimming in wealth up to their eyeballs. The purpose of my making these observations is first to underscore how important the creators of wealth are to the battle facing us; they have to be active on the side of freedom and ready to support a grass roots army to fight in the trenches.”

How can conservatives fight back against a well-entrenched opposition? Horowitz explained: “character attacks can have a crucial impact on electoral outcomes; well-designed attacks on an opponent’s credibility can overpower well-crafted messages.” And Horowitz encouraged conservatives to argue on the basis of character: “Obama is the most brazen and compulsive liar ever to occupy the White House. He is a commander-in-chief missing in action — invisible at the budget negotiations in Washington and the withdrawal negotiations in Iraq, hidden from view in crisis after crisis. While Egypt and Syria burn, he golfs. His endless dithering and wrong-headed interventions to support the Muslim Brotherhood have set the Middle East aflame. Meanwhile, he and his wife carry on like French royalty, lavishing tens of millions of taxpayer dollars on their family and dog while tens of millions of Americans suffer historic levels of deprivation because of policies he put in place. This is a leader who just doesn’t care. That’s how he was able to leave four brave Americans to die in Benghazi. He just doesn’t care.”

So why haven’t conservatives attacked Obama on character? Horowitz suggests:

The reason why we have not attacked him is obvious to everyone, but no one will say it out loud. I will. The reason no one is willing to confront Obama the way he deserves to be confronted is because the color of his skin is black. Actually he is half black, raised by whites and one Indonesian. But no matter, since racist liberals have made the color of one’s skin all that matters. It is because Obama is a minority that no one will hold him to a common standard; or confront him with what he has actually done. Any political consultant will tell you that you can’t. This is how race conscious and race-prejudiced our country has become. This is why we lose elections. Because what is true of Obama is true of the Democratic Party and the liberals and socialists generally. They present themselves as the defenders of minorities. Whenever they are attacked, they use minorities as human shields, so they can call their opponents racist. If we can’t hold Obama accountable, how can we hold any Democrat, any liberal or any socialist accountable? Because this is how they fight, and will do so until we have a counter-strategy to neutralize their attacks.

Horowitz continued, “How can we turn the tables on them? It’s not rocket science. We can beat back their attacks by turning their guns around. We can neutralize them by fighting fire with fire. In the real world, Democrat socialists have made the lives of poor Americans worse, much worse. We need to shove this fact in their faces every time we speak…. This is a social atrocity committed by liberals and democrat socialists against African Americans. If we spoke like they do, we would call this racism — the most appalling racist atrocity committed against African Americans since the passage of the Civil Rights Acts.”

“So here’s the strategy to beat them, remembering that the best defense is a good offense:Attack the democrat socialists for their wars against minorities and the poor,” Horowitz concluded. “Expose their empty promises and question their character and undermine their message by portraying them as hypocrites whose words cannot be trusted.”

    Fight fire with fire? Hmmmm. Then why don’t fire crews use fire to put out fires? Best to use methods that are different and superior to their Gramscii-Alinsky-Cloward/Piven. Given that David Horowitz wants us to throw the truth at them, why is it that he refers to them as socialists rather than the CPUSA owned and operated commies that they actually are?
    I’m sure that DHJ will tell you that socialism is about taking your money to use for themselves while communism is strictly about maximum control. Is it not rather obvious just how controlling the Left is getting to be? For Pete’s sake, they want to tell you what size soda you must buy! This is only the smallest reference, as you likely know already. And Obama? He is setting himself up to be our Dear Leader; the ONLY leader.
    There is a far superior strategy to use against Alinsky’s. Sun Tzu, the old Chinese military general. But, alas, it matters not since there are only a mere handful of Republicans able to think outside the political box, and even they are not brave enough to start a war against the communist run Left of this country. They will ALL protect themselves and allow this country to go totally down the commode drain.

    • MacMac1000

      Typo correction.
      Not DHJ. DH, as in David Horowitz.

      • 11bravo

        David is right! Stick to one thing – go after their personal character and how their policies affect the poor and minorities ONLY!
        Bringing up birther ID theft and all the rest just makes us as kooky as Ron and Rand.
        Just point out the character flaws about any and all dems you debate on TV. Do it every time – everywhere.
        It is all about WINNING!!!

    • florence va

      I agree. I don’t know who DH is speaking to. If he’s speaking to the Koch brothers who are on the board and the funders of AFP then he needs to call out their names. They have had their heads buried in the sand with the same old strategies and now we have the communist for another 4 years.
      Face it DH, it’s the elites vs the rest of us. Where is Joe the Plumber? Why isn’t he speaking. I’m sick of all the ‘brillian’t great writers like DH who get paid to speak to the real warriors sitting at the tables. We’re the ones on the front lines and yet AFP won’t invite people like Mike Vanderboegh or David Codrea!
      Fight fire with fire? Is he kidding? The fact that well-off pols, Fox news pundits and writers like himself are on the Defending the Dream schedule instead of the citizens from LOCAL! tea parties speaks volumes. I mean, really, where has DH and Malkin and Gottlief or whatever his name is, gotten us so far? They command speaking fees and stroke their own egos while regualr American wil be the ones unable to head for Costa Rica when the ships goes all the way down.
      DH is as much a part of the elites’ refusal to think outside the box and change up. Too bad.

        • truebearing

          Your poor spelling is the least you should be apologizing for.
          David Horowitz was fighting the Left before you knew the difference between right and left. Do you think opposing the Left is without risk? If you do, you are as much a fool as your shallow, arrogant post indicates.
          Have you had the courage or intelligence to provide the Right with a reliable map of the Left and its occult connections? Have you taken on George Soros, or power broker on the Left, or do you just snipe at stalwarts of the Right from behind the lines?
          Do you think idiots like yourself should do the writing, thinking, and leading? Don’t make me laugh. You’re a whiner and a lightweight. You aren’t even qualified to be cannon fodder and you don’t have the brains or courage to do a minute fraction of what Horowitz has done to keep this country from falling to communism.
          If you had a brain, and even a vague awareness of the massive gap between you and your accomplishments, and those of David Horowitz, you’d apologize for your nonsensical comment.

            Frontpage is the best web page on the web. David and his fellow contributors have done amazing investigative work on the folks who are destroying this nation. However, Horowitz and company have punted on the biggest scandal of the century, the usurping of the Presidency by Barry Soetoro (aka Barack H. Obama, Barry Obama, Barack Obama Soebarkah, Harrison J. Bounel, he has used them all). The evidence has been collected and packaged, all Horowitz has to do is report on it. It would be the easiest assignment he ever had. Silence, why????

    • Gee

      In most forest fires – fire crews do in fact use fire to put out fires.

    • 11bravo

      So what is the superior plan MAC?

      • Albert8184

        The superior plan would have been to put a stop to the nonsense in the McCarthy era, when people in power were predisposed to defend the founding principles. Would have been massive protests against the Federal Reserve Act and giving corporations free speech rights and muzzling the political speech of the church. Would have been to send Bill Ayers to the electric chair, instead of giving him a cushy government job as an educational subversive.

        There is no superior plan NOW, save a patriotic salvation front organized by a fierce demagogue with a vision and the ability to unify a weak and fragmented traditional base as well as make as many useful idiots of the Left switch sides as possible. This Leader is going to have to have buy in from non-white social conservatives.

    • sendtheclunkerbacktochicago

      Horowitz will not deal with the Scandal of the Century and the biggest Constitutional issue ever. Obama is an illegal President. He is a FRAUD and a CRIMINAL, David knows it and refused to report on it or investigate it. He has been completely silent on about these Obama crimes.

        • sendtheclunkerbacktochicago

          Its worse than that, there has been a 23 month criminal investigation being conducted concerning the fraudulent documents being used amd flaunted by Obama are seriously flawed. His April 27th, 2011 computer generataed PDF file is a forgery and his 2008 registration with the Selective Service was also fraudulent. Those documents were used to prove he was eligible to be POTUS. He was not and is not eligible to be POTUS>

  • herb benty

    Gov’t gives themselves massive monetary deals, right down to the janitors, these are Obama’s “middle class”. Millions of government workers. Meanwhile, the real middle class, the strength of America, is milked to pay for this gargantuan government that expands mostly to watch,tax and regulate into the poor house.the very middle class that pays the country’s bills. Socialism is cannibalistic.

  • bluffcreek1967

    Yes, indeed, David, far too many conservatives have been afraid of openly criticizing Obama because they will be perceived as ‘racists.’ This fear of the label ‘racist’ is what liberals use to clobber us with because they know it works! We have allowed it to work.

    White conservatives need to abandon their fear of being looked upon as ‘racists’ and just speak the truth as it is. Besides, in the overall scheme of things, will liberals hate us any less than they already do? Every time we capitulate and allow liberals to set the rules, we lose. We worry too much about what others think, and this always gets us into problems and diminishes the force of our message.

    White conservatives also need to get over their white guilt. It’s quite okay to criticize the rising tide of black-on-white crime and the ghetto culture that has destroyed the black community without having to worry that you’re some demented, redneck ‘racist’ (no offense to rednecks). The black community in America, in fact, deserves every ounce of criticism and ridicule they get. They alone are responsible for their miserable conditions and the insane levels of crime that runs rampant in their communities – not the white man, not the ‘white system,’ and not the ‘legacy of slavery’ either.

    The more whites ‘help’ and give ‘aid’ to blacks in America, the more we cripple them and the more likely they will never grow up to be as productive as other racial groups in the U.S. (e.g., Asians). Our foolish and endless white altruism has helped enable much of the black criminal pathology that we see today.

    • truebearing

      The Left has skewed the meaning of the word “racist” to mean anyone who is white and doesn’t agree with their agenda.
      The Left uses the tendency of blacks to think and act as a monolithic group to create an instant intimidation force. They get blacks riled up about wrongs done to them, both real and imagined, and voila, they have mobs prone to violence ready to attack the cause of all of their problems — whites….whites that won’t agree to endless reparations that is.
      Way too many whites allow themselves to be paralyzed with a guilt that only makes sense if they had actually had slaves. As far as I know, guilt isn’t genetic or inherited, but many whites act as if it is. And if whites aren’t paralyzed by guilt, they’re paralyzed by fear, which is exactly what the Left, and the black mob leaders, want — racial dhimmitude.
      Unfortunately, far too few blacks see how they are being used by the Left…..even though the Left schemed to eliminate minorities in the early 20th Century.

    • sendtheclunkerbacktochicago

      There has been a 23 month long criminal investigation being carried out by law enforcement officers with hundreds of years of experience in investigating crimes. They also have people who have made careers out of sellng and servicing copy machines and programs who have determined that Obama has been using fraudulent documents. These investigators have also confided in document experts who have determined that Obama has been using fraudulent documents. After 23 months they have packaged all the evidence and made it court room ready and have been showing it to various Congresspersons and other VIPS in Washington DC. What really bothers me and frustrates me is that nearly all conservative tv and talk shows and web sites have black listed anyone who dare talk about the criminal investigation. These investigators are 100% certain that they have proven that Obama’s April 27th, 2011 computer generated document that he presented to the world is a FORGERY. They are also convinced that he fraudulently registered with the Selective Service in 2008 and did not register in 1980 as declared and they can prove it. This is crimnal activity at its worse in that Obama used these fraudulent documents to enable him to attain the office of the POTUS. Can you tell me why the hell David Horowitz is not all over this and joining hands with those investigators to dispose of this criminal?

    • Albert8184

      But, the problem is… conservatives don’t have a unified and accurate grasp of “the truth” and they certainly don’t have a vision that replaces the program of the Left for long term restoration and recovery. You couldn’t get any 10 conservatives to agree on much anything of real substance.

      In your case, for instance, I see a person who is preoccupied with ethnically driven issues, who is not looking deeper to the root of the problems. Black crime rates and family disintegration, while real, are only a symptom of the problem. You have to address the root problem, AND offer ways to fix the resulting fallout.

  • tamsin

    The content of Obama’s character cannot be discussed because of the color of his skin. Which is not what MLK had in mind. It’s like the North lost the Civil War. Democrats won, they just took the long way around.

  • Anamah

    Totally agree with your opinion David.
    And because of that you can find my comments in Gibberish as someone very well said to me.

    Nothing better to these undercover communists to called them what they are.
    Whites or blacks they spit similar resentment and ingratitude.
    They share their special will against the USA, a true commitment to ruin this amazing America you have created to inspire the world.
    I would like to thank you for your leadership.

  • AlexanderGofen

    Why haven’t conservatives attacked Obama on character? – asks Mr. Horowitz, the “Freedom Censor”, with a straight face… Really?

    Mr. Horowitz, why have you censored the most crucial facts about character of Obama-Soetoro-Soebarkach-Bounel since 2008? Are identity theft and forgery not a part of a human character? How long can you take your audience for idiots, Mr. Horowitz?

  • truebearing

    David Horowitz is right, of course. He knows exactly how the Left works and therefore what the Left fears and what damages them. Too many conservatives think they have the answer, and are afraid they will morph into Bolsheviks if they use the Left’s tactics to destroy the Left. Needless to say, these aren’t the people we want leading us now. Their all to frequently rigid, dull, self-satisfied thinking is what has brought us to this precipice, at least in part.
    Who makes the best conservative? Is it someone who was born and bred to think conservatively, or someone who learned the failure and evil of the Left first hand, and then became a conservative? Who is the conservative that all conservatives point to as our finest example of leadership? Ronald Reagan. What do Reagan and Horowitz have in common? They were both lefties before they saw the errors of their ways and became conservatives.
    Why are reformed Leftists such effective conservatives? Could it be that they fully realize the threat of the Left, and it energizes them, or is there something about their nature that inclines them to activism? Maybe both, but one thing is clear: conservatives need to heed the advice of the true experts on the Left. They understand more fully the Left’s tactics, strategies, and ruthless devotion to totalitarian power.

    • sendtheclunkerbacktochicago

      Obama is a FRAUD and he has committed this fraud right under the noses of most of the conservative media outlets including Frontpage. I believe all of the conservative media outlets know Obama has used fraudulent documents but they fear the consequences from the Democrats and the left wing nut jobs in the liberal/progressive media. That can lead to only one conclusion, they are COWARDS.

    • Albert8184

      Who makes the best conservative? A child raised firmly in the tenets of America’s founding principles, and in the knowledge that there is a law higher than the law of man, to whom we all must answer.

  • Nowhereman

  • S7teen70six

    You are absolutely right. Being timid and defensive for no good reason has allowed these people to nearly destroy our country. The facts about the Democrat party need to be exposed to bright sunshine. And when they fight back with their perpetual accusations of racism we cannot cower and go back to our corners like compliant sheep. They need to be fought head on. It won’t be pretty but it will win out in the end.

  • Dr. John

    I disagree with the approach outlined by Horowitz, because it’s
    demonization of a person, Obama. I agree that he’s a bad president and a
    person of flawed character, but that doesn’t mean he’s bad in
    everything he does and will never make a wise or beneficial move as
    president. In short, there aren’t that many out-and-out demons in the
    world. Of all the people I’ve known in my life, there was only one.
    Demonization befits the left–Bush, for them, was evil, prima facie, in
    everything he did. It doesn’t befit conservatives to adopt this style
    and it’s sad to see.

    • Gee

      Okay I’ll bite – what exactly has he done FOR America. Please name something

      • Dr. John

        Killed Bin Laden and lots of other terrorists with drone strikes. Applied sanctions to Iran. A strike on Bashar Assad’s regime, if it’s on the way, could do some good.

        • MMinCC

          Just how in the hell has any of that helped the tens of millions of Americans who have to endure this nightmare economy?

          As for Bin laden, he was forced kicking and screaming to bypass Jarrett.

          As for sanctions on Iran, they are either in possession of nukes or will be shortly-they are the root of almost all the problems in the middle east and Obama has literaaly done nothing.

          And finally, “could do some good’???? Really, bombing Syrians to keep them from killing Syrians?? It’s like Russia decided to come over here on the side of whites to protect them from the gangs of black thugs. In both cases just WTF business is it of ours or Russias’?

        • lyndaaquarius

          but what is crucial is what has he done to better the lives of African Americans? Specifically, how are their lives improved with Obama as our leader? Amnesty,which he desperately wants will be a hard blow to them.

          • Dr. John

            Gee’s question, to which I responded, is what he has done for America, not for African Americans. If you read my initial post, I say that I see him as a bad president and flawed character. I’m not his admirer or defense attorney. My point is just that he’s not a demon and shouldn’t be demonized the way the left demonizes Republican presidents–I always thought (or like to think) conservatives are the more rational, fair-minded camp. So I mentioned some of Obama’s moves in foreign policy that are not demonic and maybe even kind of good. Or are you folks saying he’s total evil, and that nothing he does needs to be considered on its own terms, since it’s always clear from the start that everything he does and will ever do is bad?

          • lyndaaquarius

            no, the important thing to consider is how poorly the African-American population is doing under Obama’s “leadership”. Leftists use minorities for political gain and Obama is really playing these citizens.Using them big time. Surely, you can see that,right?

          • Dr. John

            Well, I thought there were other important things to consider too, guess I was wrong. And no, I don’t think he’s helped African Americans, but, as I said, again, I never said he was a great president.

            Obama is following an Agenda.
            Common sense indicates that other people are in control. He is the willing mouthpiece speaking their desires into existence. It is the agenda that is evil, and that is crafted by men of evil intention; at least to the degree that it eventually will progress’ to the complete destruction of the United States Constitution. Most of Obama’s Manchurian two-step are part of a large pre-planned take down of America. In that regard I cannot give him the benefit of the doubt. Even on reasonable appearing things. The integrity of this administration is virtually non-existent. From the ‘Right’ there is no trust in him to do the right thing to preserve our liberty, nor trust in the people running his show. Next time America should just elect this shadow government and eliminate the middle man; OR make it treasonous for someone to pull the president’s strings.

        • ziggy zoggy

          Obama did not kill that impotent old fellow traveler, Osama. Seal Team Six killed him after 6 months of Presidential dithering. And Seal Team Six was outed by the Obama administration and killed shortly thereafter. The only terrorists Obama allows to be killed are the ones who can embarrass his administration or impede the advance of jihad. Assad is currently blocking the advance of jihad.

          Obama is not a person of flawed character. He is a complete scumbag with no morals or scruples whatsoever. If he isn’t evil, then nobody is.

          No, Obama has done nothing good for America, but he and his minions have harmed us immeasurably. [Ben Ghazi, Fast and Furious, wasted trillions of taxpayer dollars, apologized to those who want us dead, imposed ObamaCare on the people and granted waivers to his friends, made this Country a laughingstock among our enemies, etc.

    White Supremacist Felon Caught With 18 Guns, 45,000 Bullets And A List Of Black & Jewish Leaders

    Federal agents were tracking Ohio resident Richard Schmidt’s imports of counterfeit sports jerseys when they stumbled upon his arsenal of 18 guns, more than 40,000 rounds of ammunition, and bulletproof body armor. Besides the arsenal, he had lists of Jewish and black leaders in Detroit, MI. He is also an ex-felon who killed a Hispanic man and wounded two others 24 years ago….

    Scott Kaufman, the head of the Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Detroit, was spooked after discovering he was on Schmidt’s list. “For a convicted violent felon to amass an arsenal with 40,000 rounds of ammunition with no red flags popping up is problematic,” he told the Plain Dealer. “No matter where you stand on the gun issue, it makes you wonder. The moment I saw my name in this guy’s notebook, I freaked out.”…

    After years and years of preaching to an echo chamber with kid gloves on, FPM is finally starting to get it. Shame and humiliate your enemies. Always make it personal, because it is.

    • Albert8184

      It won’t work. In fact, it will be counterproductive, as it has proven to be already for years.

      • 11bravo

        Seems to be working for the leftists given they only represent 20% of the population. Self ID’d leftists that is.

        • Albert8184

          That’s because the Leftists own the media. And the school system. So, you go ahead and tell the one conservative professor left at Harvard to start ridiculing the liberalism of his fellow professors and his classrooms full of liberal kids.

          We’re a long way from being a position to ridicule anyone. We gave that up in the 50s and 60s.

          • 11bravo

            Al, I think David means every politician – especially the national politicians and GOP talking heads on TV like Crystal and the Kraut – Will and Goldberg.
            Do it in the school system and they will whip-out a speech code on your a$$. Ha ha!

          • Albert8184

            Yep. A speech code. That’s all it takes to defeat the opposition.

    At this juncture of American history, with the national debt at an all time high, American education at an all-time low, health care costs at an all time high, and the reputation of conservative Republicans at an all time low, advocating that American Conservatives should continue with the very tactics that got us into this mess reminds me of Jim Jones in the jungles of Guyana and the impending suicide of his entire group of followers. Wake up America! Don’t drink the cool-aid. It’s all well and good that Mr. Horowitz has seen the light and now wishes to fight for Conservative policies rather than the Communist and Leftist policies he favored in his youth. Unfortunately, he doesn’t seem to have been able to completely leave behind the Stalinist and Bolshevik style of political debate which, as we all know, is characterized by lies, personal attack, and character assassination.

    The problem with bringing Bolshevik and Stalinist tactics to the American political arena is quite simply this. The American people are completely turned off by it, and for good reason. The truth of the matter it is repugnant and contrapositive to the very essence of Authentic American Conservative political philosophy, i.e. that the innate dignity of every human being is the highest moral, ethical, and political value there is. What good is it to win an election if in the process you have turned the social fabric of the nation into a charred battlefield of broken dreams, broken human beings, and broken philosophical ideals. What good is is to win an election if in the process you destroy the very thing that makes America great?

    Thanks for your suggestions, Mr. Horowitz, but no thanks. The future of American politics belongs to those who can articulate a better vision for America’s future, a better hope for America’s people, and a better chance to realize the incomparable original American ideals of human freedom and human dignity. You of all people should know that the politics of lies, personal attack, and character assassination belong in the same “dustbin of history” as the rest of the discarded relics of the Communist, Marxist, Bolshevik, and Stalinist political nightmare that you say you have left behind. If you want to be an Authentic American Conservative, start acting like one. And in case you don’t know what one looks like, read Barry Goldwater’s classic, “The Conscience of a Conservative”, and take lessons from him. You won’t be sorry. Life is much better as a Free American, and the essence of being an Authentic American Conservative is recognizing the innate dignity of every human being.

    I don’t share David’s and this website’s views on most things related to foreign affairs but there’s no doubt that Horowitz and others here have done some phenomenal work here on the culture front at home. The Republicans need to fire back and Horowitz offers the way to go about it…unashamedly and with TEETH. The Rep leadership right now is pathetic with no one wiling to take a stand and lead.

    It’s a shame the conservatives can make a real difference here at home but at the same time want to give us a disastrous interventionist foreign policy. The American people are not going to support more wars not in our country’s interest.

  • Joel Raupe

    The appalling state of services and inattentive to the individual American citizen under the bureaucratic orthodoxy owned lock, stock and barrel by socialists is an obvious weakness that should be exploited to fullest advantage.

  • Albert8184

    I disagree, David. I admire you and I respect you. But I disagree with you here.

    The Left controls the education system and the media. They control the science discourse and entertainment culture. They will win by attrition. And no amount of debate is going to change that fact. Until we find real leaders who have a vision to put a stop to cultural Marxism in a real and substantive way, and who will refuse to go along with the Beltway stream of consciousness, it’s hopeless. America will fall.

      Really? Why is it that you can’t see creating a front that is united across the lines of liberty vs. the lines of your “faith”? One does not have to be a leftist to be an atheist, but you wouldn’t know by listening to conservatives. There are many of us who believe in liberty but don’t share your faith. I wonder, do think we could try to make common cause? I think we can restore the character of our society by making a few changes. People will respond to being given more freedom, more authority in their lives and communities, and more responsibility.

      I think the moral crisis of our society is more due to the Marxist and Progressive diagnosis of what ails us. They see exploitation of power and class, and see the system as only serving the powerful – yet they rely on the power of govt to fix that problem. Sort of like hiring a panther to guard your cave from the lion – either way you’re dinner. And there is no learning for them – their beliefs are unfalsifiable as their is so much resting on their truth. Entire edifices of institutions across society rely on adherence to their brutish view of life and man.

      I think we can talk about the innate moral superiority of voluntary agreements, personal liberty and respect for property rights. Why not make the case that civil society, left to its own devices becomes quite busy and diverse? Just understanding that bottom up decisionmaking has the advantage of not replicating errors as opposed to top down decisionmaking always spreading errors across a complex system like our society seems a very good way to get the message across. I don’t have to bring faith into it.

      Do I make no sense? I have nothing against Christianity or even the idea of how “the Church” has been an important influence in American life. But I think that the religious among us should realize that they have very strong allies in the atheist world who would make common cause on liberty with them, if they were to reconsider placing faith at the center of their criticisms and analyses.

      Just sayin’…

      • Albert8184

        Okay. I’ll listen. Give me something substantive on the changes. Certainly we can agree that Marxist/ Progressivism is the problem – that’s a start.

    • 11bravo

      Al,” Until we find real leaders who have a vision to put a stop to cultural Marxism in a real and substantive way, and who will refuse to go along with the Beltway stream of consciousness, it’s hopeless.”
      THis is why Dave says attack Obama’s character…and every single lib’s character. Dismiss them as legitimate. Call them names, discredit them, laugh in their faces on TV. Belittle any commentator or interviewer who quotes them or espouses their views.
      Davids plan is VERY viable. It is where the attrition stops – belittle the media – all of us – all the time everytime – and most assuredly while on the big three networks.

      • Albert8184

        No. I didn’t mean “real leaders” who would continue the grand old party tradition of arguing with Leftists as they have for the last 30 years. Debate is worthless. It’s time for decisive action and civil disobedience.

    • Lerojist

      I agree. Until real Americans turn back to God’s Word, instruction, the nation will continue to decline. NO MORE political correctness.

      Being a Christian don’t mean stupid.

      • Albert8184

        True. But I’m afraid there are as many conservatives in this country who are Leftist as there are Leftists who are Leftists. Steeped more in the worldview of secularism than they are of Jesus.

    Glenn Beck began to blow the lid off the entire subversive process in 2008 when he first went to Fox. And we see how speedily he was eliminated from the equation before he could do anymore damage to the Soros-led Leftist funding machine. It would be interesting to know more about that legendary “lunch discussion” that Beck had with Soros’ people. I bet it involved some threats that made things crystal clear for Beck.

    But it demonstrates how much danger we are in now. NOBODY in Washington is willing to stand up against these people.

    No Mob present. Why lie frontpagemag? To promote racial hatred.

    PORTLAND, OR (KPTV)
    “Andy Sweeney, who moved to Portland from Illinois last month, told FOX 12 that he was riding his bicycle home from a friend’s house late Saturday night when he noticed three young men walking in the opposite direction along Northeast Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard in Portland.

    One of the men threw a traffic cone at Sweeney’s face, which knocked Sweeney to the ground, he said”

    No excuse. Those involved should be captured and punished.

      “Not so heartening is a report from Norwich, the largest city in England after London. A woman namedEmma Way sent out this tweet on May 19: “I knocked a cyclist off his bike. I have right of way, he doesn’t even pay road tax.”

      In an interview with the BBC, the victim, Toby Hockley, said: “She hit me hard, really hard. I am lucky to be alive. But I managed to get out of the hedge and stand up. The car was nowhere to be seen. She hit me and she was gone. All I know is that it was a blonde girl driving.”

      All other blondes responsible for what this women did?
      Should we hate all blondes now??

    I believe in segregation, but the enemy within wants racial strife for better control. We are all more comfortable with what we have in common, I say racial segregation. We are kind in passing, but segregation is the way.

        Shame on you!

        Racial segregation is the only way for peace for everyone.
