It would also help to find a candidate who embodies conservatism, believes it, articulates it, has a history and a background of implementing it--and convinces and inspires people.
The way CPAC is going, the way the Republicans talk--a paradigm shift in political thought is needed.
What a great question by David: Why isn't the National Socialist Republican party taking up the issue of teaching English to Latin children in American schools? 75% of Latin identify themselves as conservative and yet they still vote for the man whose parent race despises and distrust Latins. Am I the only one who sees that the African American is the only race that hates every other race on the planet; whites, Jews, Asian and Latins? Why do we continue to dance around this ugly race-hate fact that was generated by the Demokratic Party's treatment of blacks since reconstruction?
70% of Asian, who also identify as conservative in the majority, voted for Mr. Potato head and the National Socialist have zero interest in these valuable, cultured, motivated and self -sufficient people? No The National Socialist, like the Demokrats pander to the American African like they were little gods. Forget the Africans, start thinking about the Latins and the Asian. The Demokrats "own" the American African.
And the national Socialist Republican Party's out-reach to Africans, who despise and hate the white National Socialist Party, was to appoint Michael "Mr. Cucumber head" Steele as the chairman. The only African who is more stupid and corrupt than Obama, itself.
The National Socialist Republican party must be defeated and pushed into the dustbin of history. They have proved to be nothing but stupid and intractable since the moment the Emancipation proclamation was signed. The National Socialist Republicans Party is a one trick pony; "We freed the slaves." Jesus. The national Socialists, like the African American prefer to portray their group as victims. Poor us.
Fight them, hate the National Socialist Republicans and destroy them.
CPAC has changed it's message and it's no longer the CPAC that is delivering the " True Conservative Message " something just doesn't pass the smell test..
Breitbarts shoes can never be filled. He was exactly the perfect weapon against the progressives. Brash, intelligent and quick witted. He destroyed liberals. Roller blading right into the middle of Occupy Wall Street. He is EXACTLY what I wanted...a conservative godfather.
I miss Breitbart. He passing created a hole in the world. If he had lived, Obama could not have been re-elected.
But I cannot express how this David effects me. He, born a communist to radical, jewish communist parents, that most despicable branch of the tree of evolution, is probably the last person we should trust, as was that little sling-bearing soldier with the same name.
Bless us all.
(Infidel u did it again--thank you.!)
Horowitz has been working tirelessly to break down the stranglehold the left has on college campuses. Amazing stuff. Thanks for bringing him up!
A couple of things, I found that there were some good points made here on the way forward, I was getting excited, then they lost me as soon as Horrowitz defended Rove, It is preposterous to say that Karl is any help to the Republican Party.
Breitbart was one of a kind. He carried the war into the enemy's camp and wasn't afraid to shout/laugh right in their faces. He took people by surprise, uprooting ACORN, the 'Pigford' Sherrods, and Anthony Wiener. Horowitz has a long and respectable record, but he doesn't have that quality of unpredictability that made Breitbart so wonderfully dangerous.
To C4PFAN, and those who say he is not Andrew, well, no he is not. He doesn't try to be. If anything, Andrew was a Johnny-come-lately. As I stated in the last post about him going to colleges and universities...he needs a protective detail every time. His life has been threatened, he's been booed, they try to silence him by making a ruckus when he attempts to speak. They throw things at him, they sue the groups who invite him. It's not pretty. They are BOTH great conservatives, but David has been at this for decades now. I'm missing Breitbart, too. Andrew was more flamboyant, yes. But David is every bit as interesting, once you get to know him. His books reveal a lot about him, how he grew up a red-diaper baby, to his radical years in the 60s, to his "conversion" to Reaganism in the 80s, the losses he has suffered over the years, etc. And, yet, he still goes at it, giving it his every effort, the best of all he is, in his tireless and steady battle for conservatism and for the life of this country.
I read Radical Son many years ago and was hooked. I've also attended Restoration Weekend in Palm Beach and read many of his books. I love David. May he rest in peace but I didn't think Breitbart could shine David's shoes. He was great at what he did but he wasn't David.
Since David grew up a Marxist he knows how to beat them. He knows how they think. He holds the keys.
What David has done at universities is above and beyond the call of duty. May his guardian angels continue to watch over him.
Please .....your comment that Breitbart could not shine david's shoes, is ridiculous, Breitbart was more powerful, and got more attention in one day then David's whole life. I dont know if you watched the whole video, David defended Karl Rove, enough said.
I guess that was my point and I didnt state it correctly, I found it insulting to Breitbart to denigrate his memory with that silly comment, people have short memories he was a very effective spokesperson for the Tea Party, and he knew how to do it in this new era of the media.
We don't need to fight over them. Breitbart was unique. But Horowitz has been at this a long time, and has been tremendously effective. Both are/were excellent.
David Horowitz is a Conservative. Breitbart was not. Breitbart, while claiming to be a political Conservative, was still, very much, a social liberal (which just means, he was a liberal). He had no qualms about attending gay events as a speaker, and so to legitimize organize organizations like the so-called "Log Cabin Republicans".
Tammy Bruce: just another homosexual pretending to be a Conservative, but still pushing a liberal social agenda. Just because she talks about gun rights, does not make her Conservative, but people are willing to claim she is a Conservative, just because she speaks well of guns.
The "big tent" bull**** is not rejected by the Establishment, but the hallmark of the Republican Establishment. That garbage philosophy is precisely what brought us people like John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Ron Paul, Olympia Snowe, Mitt Romney, Scott Brown, Arlen Specter, Rick Snyder, Jeb Bush, Colin Powell, SE Cupp, and all the rest. Then, there's Glenn Beck, who is certainly no more a Conservative, than Rand Paul, but a self-professes libertarian, which is nothing but a social liberal in Conservative's clothing.
Just because someone gets along well with Conservatives, just because someone goes to Conservative events, does not a Conservative make. This sounds too much like " the enemy, of my enemy, is my friend", a stupid philosophy that almost always backfires. Its time to stop the "big tent" bull****, and use some discernment. David Horowitz is a Conservative. Bill Wittle is a Conservative. Senator Cruz. Michelle Malkin. We need to be more discerning. Liberals are, and they WILL NOT accept someone they don't believe is really on their side, because they talk out of both sides of their mouths. Being a geniune Conservative doesn't mean being in lockstep, but you have to be consistent. Politically, financially, socially. Too many so-called Conservatives aren't, because they're too busy hawking gay marriage, amnesty, corporate welfare, government spending, legislating morality, and kowtowing to the left. Those people we don't need. Guys like David Horowitz aren't anything new, and I certainly wouldn't insult him by calling him a Breitbart. What Conservatives like him really are is UNKNOWN, and it's up to Conservatives like us, on this page, to spread the word about these people, and change them from unknowns, to household names. Rush Limbaugh is a household name, because he has a radio show is his platform. We, ourselves, have to become the platforms of Conservatives, like these.
If Reagan lives anywhere its at the David Horowitz Freedom Center. The establishment keeps piicking fruit from a dying tree and drinking Dhimi kool-aid from a poisoned well. Like I said in the thread Horowitz brings alot f people together...though I do not always agree with them...and gives each a place at the table of ideas. That's what traditional liberals do. That's liberal with a small "L". This is the tradition that used to be part of the American school system; that no longer exists. That's why he features such an eclectic group. So I'll see your bullsh** and raise you a little hard truth.
Totally agree with you with except the legislating morality part. We do legislate morality...as a matter of fact we legislate because of morality.
The real question is going to be is where are conservatives willing to draw their line in the sand to say someone is not conservative? Elections are won by majorities and so that needs to be kept in mind when drawing that line in the sand.
To Netmilsmom: How long have you been following Horowitz? He may not be like Breitbart, personality-wise, but he is every bit the fighter and has been since the 90s, maybe before. I've been supporting him for years, read most of his books, get his daily emails for years. He usually is ahead of everyone else, like Breitbart, in seeing how things are going to turn out, etc. He has been speaking at colleges and universities for years, and I might add that he gets a lot of antagonistic stuff and hate mail thrown his way. The left hate him, even more than Breitbart, because he has been around a lot longer. I trust him, too. He is a tireless warrior! I don't think many could stand half of what Horowitz has been through, and I know many would just shut the heck up rather than take the abuse.
I found DHs explanation spot on. When I was a sales manager I had to drive it into my sales reps heads time and time again that "all sales are based on emotion" people don't realize this and think they are buying something because they are so logical and that it just makes sense but that is not the case at all. Out of a purchasing decision you only need to supply about 5% of data to satisfy the logical part of their thought process the other 95% has to appeal to their emotions.
I know some people reading this, especially engineers and other analytical types will disagree with this and think that all their decisions are based upon reasoning but they're wrong and just don't know it.
If more conservatives put their foot down like Rand Paul did yesterday, we could win hands down. Even the liberal rag LA Times poll on him was 95% for what he was doing, albeit it was not a scientific poll, it was heartening.
Isn't that the music from Band of Brothers? It always makes me cry. But I am teary eyed today. I attended a funeral for a friend. An older gentleman who was the kindest, sweetest guy I know today. He had a heart of gold and nothing but nice things to say. Very sad day :(
I meant to continue that the conference must have been inspiring. I wish I could attend such an event someday.
On a side note...my hubby's grandfather was in Patton's Army and was the relief crew for E company all over Europe. He didn't talk about the war much until the end of his life but he told me the coldest he had ever been was the Ardannes(sp?)Forest.
There ought to be a website like this one (for the Navy and Marines) where you could get info on it. Good hunting!
I haven't seen that, but I will look again. We didn't even know he had earned it until 3 years ago. It was in the trunk packed away. I found the order no. online in a database. It is kind of interesting doing the research. Thanks for your help! :)
Hmmm. There ought to be a citation somewhere. My wife's got a relative who keeps his Silver Star citation on the wall, and it briefly explains his actions (in military-ese) that earned the award.
It can be hard to track that stuff down, though.
I have a menu of a Christmas party given at the base before they were shipped overseas. On it are the names of soldiers. He wrote beside the names of each man he served with what became of them. I also have some pictures. I hope to preserve his records to share with future generations of our family. I am glad you have those photos.
My father was in Italy also. I have 2 small black and white pics of him over there that my mom gave me after he passed 3 years ago. Feels like yesterday to me.
Isn't that something!? My father would never speak of service during the war. I feel like I missed a huge part of his life. It affected him right up to the end. Sad.
We had some photos he left us as well. We didn't even know he had those. We donated them to the Holocaust Museum in LA but now I wish I had saved them and given them to the new WWII museum in New Orleans. I didn't know at the time it was in the planning stages though.
My great-grandfather fought in WWII as well. The only thing he ever told anyone was that there were dead horses in the streets during the battle in Salerno, Italy. I was young when he died, but a couple of years my grandmother gave me all the contents of his footlocker. No one had ever looked at them. Come to find out, he had earned 2 purple hearts (we only knew about one) and a silver star. I have done some research and his company helped to liberate a camp as well. Still trying to figure out what he received the silver star for. I have an order no., but haven't been able to track down any other info yet. I can only imagine what he saw and experienced and can understand why he didn't speak of his time over there.
I know what you mean. My own Grandfather served in both WWI and II, but never once spoke of it in my hearing until he was in his late eighties, and I happened to be sitting with him with a friend from college. This friend was just asking questions, and suddenly I found that my Grandfather had been with the first wave of units called in to figure out what these "concentration camp" things our troops had discovered were, and how to go about getting the victim/prisoners healthy enough to release.
He had a pile of photos my Uncle said he'd burned long ago, keeping only a few that he felt were fit for decent people to see.
Another good friend of mine did not know his own father had been on Omaha beach on D-Day. Not until the old man was in his eighties, and felt his kids should know about it. And even then, he could only bring himself to tell his oldest son, and not the other kids. Up till that point, not one of the family knew about it. No even his own wife.
NEVER apologize for telling the truth. B.o.B. may well be the greatest tale ever told about the 2nd WW. I believe children should be seeing it and studying it for a long time to come. That movie should be required for ALL school kids to see, debate, and study.
For years; Horowitz as been my #1 American hero for his efforts in going to colleges and exposing the radical left.
He's a great American and we would be wise to listen to him. He has indepth analysis on all important topics.
Kudos to The Right Scoop; for getting THIS SCOOP right.
