Posted on 06/08/2012 6:41:42 AM PDT by Reaganite Republican
So...the Left wins?
Isn't that what the likes of Kimberlin want? For conservatives to not blog?
Correction: Ace of Spades was not targeted himself (although the day of silence is his idea)... it was an LA County prosecutor who blogs as “Patterico” that was indeed ‘SWAT-ted’ just about a week ago
Uh...silence is self-defeating.
It’s not like anyone reads blogs anyway.
You know, there comes a time when you fight fire with fire. The Left has for too long benefited from Conservative’s sense of “fair play”.
The allies won WWII through mass bombings of civilians, the use of WMDs, and other things, that when taken individually would be immoral by any standards. Taken in context, though, they were just and righteous.
Maybe, just maybe, it’s time to start looking at things in the proper context, and Conservatives need to take the gloves off.
The only fair fight is the one you win.
Lemme get this straight...
You wanna protest the attempted silencing of the right-wing blogosphere, by silencing yourselves?
And people wonder why boycotts are ignorance.
One day isn’t going to help the Left, they’re trying to scare people out of blogging for good
What it CAN do is get a message across to those on The Hill who might be able to do something about it... GOP senators are already pressuring the DOJ to look into all this, but I wouldn’t get my hopes up there- Holder’s surely not interested
Michele Malkin’s also in on it, I’m just supporting the cause here- maybe there would have been other ways to do it, but this one is already in action, so I’ve chosen to support it... maybe some regular readers will take time to contact their congressional representatives instead
The idea is a day of ACTION, no inaction
But not by blogging... I already called my congressman and senator
“Its not like anyone reads blogs anyway.”
Michele Malkin and instapundit both get 150,000 hits/day... that’s 3x Newsweek’s WEEKLY circulation
Even little guys like me do 3000/day, ya know- the media is being chopped up into smaller players as the big, liberal MSM outlets crumble... many would have been gone already without Obama’s bailouts/porkulus money. The future is many more sources ran through various aggregators, Drudge showed the way on that.
We conservatives should welcome the death of the Dinosaur Media... the thousand points of light emanating from the blogosphere cannot be silenced, THUS the violence and threats we are now seeing... they are desperate as hopenchange implodes
Due primarily to your free exposure here on FR.
I note some ads on your blog. How much of that ad revenue do you contribute to FR for the exposure?
I will, however, give you credit for not excerpting.
This places you many rungs above standard blogpimps.
most decent folks might trvst a citizen blogger b4 ...say, the nyt for instance...or mistrvst anyone else who leans toward silencing wee the sheeple...
gotta remember, the WTP in the preamble was referring to (not “the folks”) but the signers at the secret con-con...and it’s been a con ever since...
