I’ve lost all interest in the public jabber. I still take daily digital strolls past Instapundit, Drudge, PJMedia, RCP, and BOTW on weekdays. Most days I stop by old haunts like aosHQ, hot air, NRO, etc. and still occasionally follow a link to a new site.
But now all that earnest effort just makes me sad and disappointed. Nobody has the faintest idea about what’s needed.
Though maybe a few are starting to nose around at the margins.
Tragic as those developments were, this — the electoral affirmation of President Barack Obama — is a crowning catastrophe. It signals more than political or legal corruption.
We have to get real, and the reality is bleak. It prescribes a task far more difficult than crafting “the right message” or finding “the right candidate.”
We have to fundamentally transform minds.
Also…wait, what? What minds is he talking about? It’s a Catch-22; the only transformable ones are the ones not needing it. The Left is immune to reason and is assimilating America’s schoolchildren.
Ahhh, had lots more points to make. But why? They’re all as futile as this writer’s efforts. He mentions Bill Whittle and Declaration Entertainment. Hey, I’ve been contributing there since its earliest days, but not under the illusion that it will change anything.
Now I’m just waiting for others to realize there’s only one way to fundamentally transform irrational foes.
US: “We’re going to beat you forever with this bloody stick, or until you leave us alone.”
LEFT: “Ow ow OW! But what about that carrot, what’s the carrot?”
US: “The carrot is that you don’t get constantly beaten to a pulp. You’ll get it right after you leave us alone.”
That method would work. Nothing else you read today will. So forgive me for avoiding news more and more.
