Are You Ready to Storm the Beaches?
Conservatives4Palin ^ | September 21 2011 | Mary Beth House

Posted on 09/21/2011 8:57:50 PM PDT by Windflier

Peter Singleton, Iowa state co-ordinator for Organize4Palin:

(snip)

“Imagine, if you will, that this is May 1944. We’re all in our tents in Great Britain. We’re all preparing.

You’ve checked your boots. And checked your gear. Do you have your sidearm? Check. What about your rifle? Double check. How about extra ammo? You’ve packed and re-packed the landing craft. The fellows in the airborne have pored over the maps of the drop zones, again and again.

And as you continue through the laundry list of things you need to do to prepare for the call to hit the beaches…you notice your buddy two bunks over is just sitting there, his arms crossed tightly.

‘Hey pal,’ you call out. ‘Aren’t you gonna get ready?’

‘No,’ he mutters under his breath.

‘Why not? Everyone knows that the invasion is imminent!’

‘Because General Eisenhower hasn’t briefed me on his strategy.’

‘What!?’ you reply incredulously.

‘When are we going? Where are we going to hit?’ he exclaims. ‘What day? These are all things we need to know, and know right now. I’m not going to do a thing to get ready until I hear from the General!’

That scenario is preposterous when you think about it, isn’t it? Because, as soldiers, they all knew they had to be ready. They did know that invading the continent was almost certain and was imminent. But they also knew that they would never be privy to the strategic planning—and should not be. The less people who knew of the whens and the wherefores, the less chance there was of the information being leaked to the Germans. And then what would have happened? The Germans would have been ready and waiting on June 6, and on the beaches of Normandy—and the course of the war and of human history would have been changed.

So we too must look at the election cycle metaphorically as a war.

Today, for us, it is May of 1944. We don’t know when the call will come, only that it’s almost certainly coming…and it’s coming soon.

So our job right now is to prepare for that call so that when the announcement comes…we are ready to go. We’re are prepared and ready for what is to come.

That the “General” hasn’t filled us in on her strategy is no surprise. Secrecy and message discipline is vital in any campaign…be it a campaign for war or a campaign for office. This is could not be more important in this, potentially the most important election in American history.

So the question I throw out there to all Palin supporters is this…

Are you ready to storm the beaches?“

Kind of an insulting take if you ask me. And I speak as a die-hard Palin supporter.

WE HAVE BEEN READY FOR FRIGGING MONTHS NOW!!!!

Checkbooks out, ready to buy signs, bumper stickers, man phones, anything else that needs to be done. We're primed and pumped. But until Sarah tells us she's running, there's not much else we can do!!!

I was promised by Freepers associated with various Palin organizations that she was going to announce Sept. 3, and then in time for tomorrow's today's debate. No sign of an announcement. God, I hope she runs, but this is killing me.

Right! And we'll stay in a constant state of preparedness until Sarah gives us the green light. Just like those soldiers on D-Day, we know it's coming any day now, but we're simply not on a need-to-know basis regarding the actual GO date.

Cards anyone?

My pitchfork is ready...and my checkbook.

I have already donated at sarahpac.com, but I'm ready to give more.

We will need some "Sarah Palin for President" yard/political signs. It would be great if a national organization could print them in bulk and sell them at cost to local Tea Party organizations. We can provide the sticks.

I'm ready. Let's do it -- probably in October or November. .

I quit listening to speculation about her intended announcement dates after the first date came and went. She's going to announce when the moment is right, and not a minute sooner.

As far as promises go, Sarah has said that it has to be no later than late September - early October. That is as close as anyone can nail it down.

I've got no problem with that. We've got a long 13 months ahead of us until election day.

I’m sorry, but this is just creepy for me as a conservative to see anybody this blindly devoted to a human being.

Gotta be early October at the latest (which Sarah herself has indicated). There are a couple of important filing dates that she can't miss, then.

It’s not blindly devoted to a human being. That is a very ignorant way to see it.

She has a core value and belief system that some of us can see. She is a God-Fearing woman that can eliminate the socialist properties Obama has pushed through.

Our Nation will fall if we choose the Obama European Model and that is exactly what goes away here. It’s damn unconstitutional as well.

Point to ponder...

It has been since 1988 since Conservatives have really rallied behind and BELIEVED IN the candidate they chose to support. Have you truly forgotten what that means and is like - to genuinely support a candidate I mean.

No one here has a blind loyalty to Palin. What we have is a ‘belief’ that she’s the right person for the job and until she says otherwise, we will wholeheartedly support her.

And if she chooses to not run, we will lend our efforts to another candidate. And our enthusiastic support will be consummate with that candidate’s beliefs and how they align to our own.

Palin isn’t God and no one thinks she is, Cultish taglines aside ;)

"In wartime, truth is so precious that she should always be attended by a bodyguard of lies." - Churchill

Excellent post Windflier. Singleton is telling us to fight smarter and to mature in our approach to political battle. Churchill saw the same thing as did Captain Jack Aubrey in "Master and Commander".

"That will test our nerve, and discipline will count just as much as courage.

In this sequence from the movie Aubrey instructs his men that in order to defeat the larger ship Archeron they must spring a trap. Disguised as an unarmed whaler they allow the Archeron to get close so they can cripple her. Successfully pulling off this trap "will test our nerve, and discipline will count just as much as courage."

It is the same as us. We need to be mature warriors in this battle and not as Aubrey also said "a sniveling midshipman, still yearning for hearth and home."

Regards, Mr. Sol.

We must be ready like the cavalry of old to ride to the sounds of the guns. This will be a hard battle, an up hill struggle made worse by the MSM, Tina Fey, and the Unions. Still, if the Republic is to be saved, its a battle that must be fought. It will not be easy-—are you ready? It will cost you more than just a little shoe leather. This is an election that may even see loss of lives and reputation. Would you lose your job for Sarah Palin? Would you risk your family? Maybe even your life? Those about to land on Omaha Beach knew they could end up dead—are we ready to make the ultimate sacrifice for freedom to end a dark and diabolical tyranny? I fear many Americans are not committed. In the end they will do what is easy and not what is right.

Glad you liked that. The original painting is called, “Grand Old Gang” by Andy Thomas. Palin isn’t in the original, but was digitally added by some talented person in a HotAir contest.
