” to relentlessly expose, ridicule, deride, mock and publicly shame arrogant progressives”
Let’s give them Saul Alinsky right back, in other words.
We also need leaders who can direct, inspire,defend, thrust, parry and debate the enemy under the table.
Mr. Cunningham is correct.
We have reached a tipping point on many levels in America this very moment.
Ridicule & sarcasm are powerful weapons. And heaven knows the Left has provided enough targets.
This past Christmas I spent time with my brother who introduced me to Jon Stewart. He has several choice Jon Stewart episodes recorded that he showed me.
This guy, Jon Stewart, is extremely talented at doing to conservatives precisely what the quoted paragraph above correctly opines we should be doing to "progressives". He deftly and mercilessly roasts the conservative's tactics in a way that is hilarious and totally believable to the less informed viewer. He is an extremely talented entertainer and comedian behaving as a news reporter and political commentator and is enormously engaging.
As I was watching him, I was thinking that "This guy is REALLY getting his leftist message across" and that we (conservatism) have nothing even close to this guy.
I don't have a clue how conservatives could possibly counter the effectiveness of Jon Stewart's spew, the truth is obviously not working, at least all by itself it isn't.
If an extremely talented conservative counterpart were to emerge, he (or she) certainly wouldn't be granted the venue that Stewart enjoys.
There are bound to be extremely witty conservative performers out there who could balance this guy and this genre to some degree, and surely there are producers that would see the profit in a conservative counterpoint? Maybe in India?
What Mr Cunningham is advocating is being done in the blogosphere, talk radio and the likes of FR. These media are only selected by those interested. The MSM is so entrenched with the rest of the apolitical and the political left that it will take extreme violence to ever get balance of information to a majority of voters.
The Democrat Party, now owned by the Communists, and the Republican Party, whose significance is not apparent to me, are only interested in power, not America.
I agree with most of this but it’s really not about branding. It’s about doing what’s right, which will never be “cool.”
