The Cabal of ‘Elite’ Conservative Bloggers Unites

September 19, 2012 3 comments

This Saturday, I posted a ‘fangirl’ blog, super excited because I got the Full Metal Jacket Reach Around Award from The Other McCain. I was thrilled, humbled, and honored because as I indicated in my fangirl post, Stacy McCain has been around a while, knows his stuff, and from what I’ve seen, is truly a stand up guy. His enemies would say ‘so you got an award for linking to him, so what’? Well it’s not something he is obligated to do, and I can attest to the improved traffic and attention my blog has received since he linked to me. I’ve seen him link and tweet for bloggers that others would consider ‘little known’ or completely off of the radar. I’ve read the kind words from several people stating how much Stacy has done for them. He has been a mentor to many, and an even better friend.

To know that he’s under fire from people whom I construe as just being completely jealous of him, is disconcerting. I’ve seen just how ugly the progressive left can be for myself. Go ahead, defend someone like Lee Stranahan, Dana Loesch, Stacy McCain or Michelle Malkin, and watch the attack tweets roll in. I personally agree with Dana (yes, love her too) when she tweeted recently: “Don’t engage the trolls, I only retweet them so people can see their ideology is based on hate.” (paraphrased) While I agree with that 100%, I also know that sometimes…you just need to sound the trumpet for good, and stand up for your friends.

Anyone who knows me, and knows me well, also knows you don’t eff with my family or friends, because this good lil Christian girl will go ghetto in a heartbeat. It’s a fault I often have to pray about, but it has it’s redeeming qualities. With that said, I just wanted to also take the opportunity to address these ridiculous ‘elitist’ statements about Stacy. Some colleagues that have known him far longer than I have also posted some amazing affirmations, and I’m linking them below. Please take the time to check them out, and if you’re so inclined, visit Stacy’s blog and leave a word of support.

And to all the haters, your venom only invigorates us, your spite only amuses us, and your threats only unite us. This is #War, and we’re in it together, we will rally behind and protect our own.

Sikh temple shooting: Details on gunman emerge; donation drive for victims launched

August 6, 2012 Comments off

I adore Michelle Malkin. I was going to post about the Sikh shooting, but was hesitant, because most of the sources I saw focused on the shooter and him being a white supremacist, and all the additional speculation that goes along with that. Of course, as with Aurora, we’re already seeing politicization of this shooting as well. Well as usual, Michelle nails it and says it perfectly.

The dead gunman in the horrific Wisconsin Sikh temple shooting has been identified. He is Wade Page, an Army veteran with white supremacist tattoos.

I’ll leave the vulgar politicization of this evil massacre to others. The usual suspects are in full-blown Blame Righty Syndrome mode. They are as ghoulish and galling as the disgusting Westboro publicity hounds.

As we did with the Aurora movie theater shooting just two short weeks ago, we will keep the focus here on the victims:

Commemorating those lost in Aurora-UPDATED

July 21, 2012 Comments off

Today I’m sure many of us are still reeling from the shock of yesterday’s tragic events. Unfortunately, we’ve seen the tragedy become almost immediately politicized.  Ross, Stephanopoulos and ABC news later apologize, but many are still calling for termination of the two who instantly targeted the Tea Party.

While bloggers sometimes get a lot of heat, especially from the media, it’s my opinion (probably biased, yes) that they are the best researchers. PJ Tatler did an excellent comparison of a network reporter and a blogger. I just can’t imagine making an accusation against an innocent person, without knowing all the facts. There are many common names out there, how did they not make sure they were talking about the right person? Breitbart News has an interview with the James Holmes, Hispanic Tea Party member, who was unfairly targeted by the media. There was actually more than one James Holmes that was harassed because of the incident.

With all that said, I think the best article so far right now, is the one by Michelle Malkin. I agree 100% in her call for us to commemorate the victims, not the shooter. His story will ultimately come out, we hope, if he starts cooperating. I don’t doubt he was a very troubled young man, but our focus deserves to be on the families of those who lost their lives in such a tragic and horrific way. Let’s join with Jessica’s Mom, and her request that #RIPJessica continues to trend. Watch Jessica’s brother’s heartfelt interview on Greta. Let’s remember all the names of those lost, the ones we know of so far: Jessica Ghawi, Alex Sullivan, AJ Boik, Matt McQuinn, and Micayla Medek. As Michelle said: “Read every post for photos, tributes, memories, and tweets. Spread the word about each precious life.” And remember folks, life is precious, cherish every moment.

Update #1: The Blaze has two great articles:

WATCH: Levin, Malkin Deliver Answer to Obama’s Class Warfare Rhetoric

Movie Trailer: Levin, Malkin Deliver Answer to Obama’s Class Warfare Rhetoric

Mark Levin in New Movie Trailer: Academic “Propaganda” is “Wrong. Dead Wrong”

By Ron Meyer, Young America’s Foundation Spokesman

America’s universities and schools are the training grounds for class warfare.

Where do you think President Obama and his administration’s economic advisors developed their redistributionist ideology and “fairness” rhetoric? It’s no coincidence most of them have spent their career in higher education. The President’s tax-hiking policies–and any public support they receive–originate from Leftist professors who preach collectivism over individual liberty.

Last week, the president said, “If you’ve got a business—you didn’t build that.  Somebody else made that happen.”

Conservatives will not sit on the sidelines as higher education and the Obama administration attempts to keep passing along their collectivist agenda to our nation’s youth.
