Andrew Breitbart: Still Winning
Following the tragic loss of Andrew Breitbart, the Conservative blogosphere and media have been filled with memorials and accolades to his life, principles, and tenacity in achieving his goal of setting the Conservative message against the main stream media. The constant theme of them all is that Breitbart was a warrior for the cause, and an example to set before all involved in fighting the barrage of skewed information presented by the main stream media. Andrew set out to ensure that even media in pop culture was countered when he created “The Bigs” and added Big Hollywood to its ranks.
An article in The Atlantic Wire makes the thought provoking statement that Andrew himself was trying to make: the Conservative movement can’t just happen in blazer and cocktail dress filled rooms, or in e-vite organized Tea Party events, or even on Twitter and Facebook groups. It has begun to surface in the places that would have made Andrew more happy than anything: in pop culture. And it’s growing.
Movies like “Act of Valor” , endorsements by celebrities of Conservative candidates, and the willingness of more celebrities to talk openly about being Conservative, are what Conservatives need to encourage to help keep up with the constant barrage of anti-conservative messaging in pop culture.
The Atlantic Wire mentions Breitbart’s quest for a Punk Rock Republican as being unfinished. I would suggest that the author of that post never met the guys from Madison Rising. A recent interview with lead singer Dave Bray, and talking with the band in general, has proven that Breitbart was on to something. These guys fully intend to do their share to bring Conservatism to the rock area of pop culture.
Now, I’m going to say something controvercial. Just as Blacks are said to not be able to be racist, what we find as the truth is they are more racist than anyone ever thought. And in the same vein, as it is said that liberals are so compassionate and have such a deep reverence for the soul of man(not recognizing GOD as the creator), what we find is the depth of their hatred, perversion, and sickness is an abiss that in the case of leadership in Washington, socialites, elitest in San Fransico, and New York, is without a doubt, bottomless.
I’m afraid to go on such sites as the Huffington Post, Media Matters, and other left wing sites because the language I’ve heard them use to describe Rush and conservatives in general may even be beyond my vocabulary, and that’s saying alot. But I can swear with the best of them but that’s just so many words. It’s when the left really find themselves a worthy target, they can really let it hang out.
What is wrong with American’s that they don’t see what the problem is? You know, you can tell the difference between someone who has deep and unrepentant anger, and someone who is just throwing something around looking for attention. These people are truely eaten up with hate of everything that is holy and true.
Good point WillofLa! I’ve always felt that if you have to insult someone with a cussword, you’ve lost the argument. I think Rush Limbaugh realized that this week in his comments about the so called ‘co-ed’ law student. If you want to tick off the liberals, keep to the facts, it drives them crazy every time.
Thanks Michelle for posting this. Madison Rising rules. I’m so jealous that you met them at CPAC.
