The next American Revolution will be televised and recorded.
Vanity | July 4th 2013 | Zeneta

Posted on 07/04/2013 9:43:23 AM PDT by Zeneta

The next American Revolution will be televised and recorded.

Grass roots conservationism has the numbers but it's message becomes easily diluted in the face of liberal media control of the narrative.

I suggest we take back the narrative.

My proposal:

Create a half dozen "permanent" threads on FreeRepublic that will serve as a clearinghouse or central hub for conservative activism using the electronic media.

A place where we can consolidated ideas into short "Twitter Bombs" that are targeted to both media heads, politicians and business leaders.

There is plenty of talent here for the creation of content. Content that is bold, biting and to the point.

I would also suggest that participants adopt a twitter handle that includes FreeRepublic, so we can drive traffic to this website.

We need to get in their face in a different way. All of these people are fundamentally insecure narcissists.

Create a "how to use twitter" thread.

Create a directory of "targets".

Create threads for specific issues; Gun Control, Immigration, Foreign Affairs, etc...

Create a library of content for each issue. Content being "cut and paste" twitter bombs.

I envision current and new FR users logging in and using the these clearinghouses to send messages without the feeling that they are alone.

Free Republic can be the center of this revolution.

I’d like to see an Education thread or area of content. I have a lot of ideas and I think this should be a real conservative issue. Not necessarily in terms of testing ad nauseum, but in terms of creating a new exciting dynamic in the class room. Democrats have controlled education for decades and look at the fiasco that they’ve produced!

I too would like to see FR a clearinghouse for independent editorials, but I just don’t think it will happen. I know we have some talented writers here, but their tomes are hard to find due to the layout of FR. There would have to be a little makeover to get FR up to the editor managed heights of Hotair or Breitbart, etc., but its certainly possible.

I am looking for the powers that be, here on FR to create “permanent threads” for this activism.

For too long our message has been diluted both among ourselves and certainly in the “Mainstream”.

These threads should be focused in such a way that the content is filtered to the top.

I’m not sure you will make much of a difference doing that. People watch television and listen to radio. That’s expensive, but the internet versions of each are not. Streaming programming that is interesting and educational will have the biggest impact.

Helping people understand and articulate conservative ideas will stimulate conversation and interest.

I disagree

If a thousand people a day, sent messages to the targets I am talking about, and sent them EVERYDAY, they will be forced to address us.

I’m not trying to educate.

The goal is to undermine their confidence by exposing their insecurity.

How about an FR YouTube channel?

Or do we already have one. Jim would have to designate someone to manage it or do it himself. Plus there would be a need for some sort of "submit for approval" mechanism to allow Freepers to make submissions.

A search for "Freerepublic" or "Free Republic" on YouTube yields this:

YouTube search on "FreeRepublic"

Realistically, if we collapse into war the power grid, communications networks, and water systems are pretty much guaranteed to be down for the duration.

So no, not as much as you might think will be recorded in the electricity sparse environment war would create here.

I need an “auto tweet” app.

An app that I can schedule my tweets to go out automatically to my targets and contain either fixed or alternating messages.

If it has not been done already, well, I just gave someone a multimillion dollar idea.

Sounds great...if the internet and broadcast airwaves aren't immediately commandeered by the tyrants to prevent exactly what you just laid out.

WTSHTF, we may have shortwave radio by which to communicate, if they don't figure out how to jam the entire spectrum, that is. Then again, there's EMP if the Muzzies get involved, and anti-satellite weapons in the Chicoms and/or Russians do. Don't count on the internet or cable when the rounds start going downrange.

Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!

There is always a place for this.

BTW, how’s that been working out in the culture wars lately ?

In addition, we are a long way away from an actual shooting civil war.

What I propose is a consolidated, defined and targeted effort to undermine the children that run the media and our Gov’t.

Big mistake. Now you're being monitored. But wait - now I'm being monitored too. Have to remember not to hit the "Post Button". Just look at the "Preview" to temp fate. Need to be very careful. Like walking up to the edge of the Grand Canyon.

Oops ....

No you are wrong, they would only be forced to ignore a thousand messages a day vs 100.

"Create a "how to use twitter" thread."

I dislike Twitter intensely because it actively encourages idiocy in 140 characters or less, but this is really a good idea. We need to be better at controlling messages no matter how long they are.

History has been re-written to suit the liberal agenda. I ask my grandkids what they have learned about various historical events, and then have to educate them on the truth.

The next American Revolution will be televised and recorded.

and this begs for some of the Lyrics of Marxist Gil Scott Herons diatribe:

The revolution will not be right back after a message
about a white tornado, white lightning, or white people.
You will not have to worry about a dove in your
bedroom, a tiger in your tank, or the giant in your toilet bowl.
The revolution will not go better with Coke.
The revolution will not fight the germs that may cause bad breath.
The revolution will put you in the driver's seat.

The revolution will not be televised, will not be televised,
will not be televised, will not be televised.
The revolution will be no re-run brothers;
The revolution will be live.

They do not have batteries that will run for several years. You seem to have the exact same misconceptions regarding what an American civil war of necessity must entail that the civilians in eighteen sixty had.

If it comes to that its likely going to take a while.

I like the idea of a conservative TED Talks.

17 minutes, or so, to present our ideas in front of an audience. Short and sweet and easily shared over the internet.

I’m guessing most FReepers don’t use Twitter or Facebook. Most FReepers rightfully suspect it’s used to profile people for their ideology and entrap them for placement on the DHS’s ‘watch’ list.

‘Bout dang time. A Free Republic YouTube Channel is a super duper idea. Time we started using the Internet in a way it was never intended- as a peer to peer broadcast medium with each one of us a potential NBC/CBS/ABC.

I’d want a dedicated thread aimed at the global financial oligarchy, their roots and their game plan starting with UN Agenda 21.

This is news to me, since first, I thought the conservationists were allied with and well represented by the liberal media, second, I didn't think there well all that many of them, and lastly, I thought these days they were mostly calling themselves "environmentalists"

LOL - naturally you meant "Grass roots conservationism"

I agree !!!

For those that I pinging into this discussion late, sorry but please look at my original post/proposal.

I love the TED talks and the challenge for conservatives, in my view, is that there are soo many topics to address that the time allowed dilutes the message.

Heritage and CPAC have a few videos that should be in our library.

Andrew Breitbart called this, “One of the five most important conservative speeches ever given” — Evan lays the foundation for what would soon become known as the “Unified Field Theory of Liberalism”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eDb3sTwD_vA

Combine the above with this, and I hope you get what I am after.

Ann McElhinney, Frack Nation

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ur50sTTETTg

These are not short videos but I think they are necessary in order to understand what and who we are dealing with.

I am tired of conservatives that take comfort in preaching to the choir.

We are smarter, more creative and have history and the facts on our side.

We need to get in their face, electronically.

The Goal: Exploit and undermine the childlike nature of liberal media personalities, environmentalists and Statists alike.

I want to destroy the false confidence they carry.

They operate from and promote relativism and uncertainty, therefore any and all statements of their opinion or fact are fair game.

please reconsider my proposal after watching the videos and offer constructive ways to achieving the goal.

I can’t do this alone.

Not just a YouTube channel !!!

See original post.

Set up Permanent Threads for electronic activism.

A clearinghouse of material so to speak.

Here is what generally happens and what we can achieve.

Some Liberal talking head says something wrong or plain stupid on air or on Twitter.

People reply as for or against the comment.

When conservatives reply, they are attacked personally, never the point of the reply.

...ReTweet the attack...

expose their hatred and intolerance.

expose their illogical position.

They might or will block you.

create a new account if needed.

repeat.

All they can try to do is rule the medium with personal attacks.

After some time they actually will go away.

We as conservatives can OWN this medium and should OWN it.

But, in my view we need to get organized.

Someone that alerts us to a stupid statement or tweet, so we can respond with a targeted effort of replies drawn from a library of content.
