A while back my husband I and were in a bookstore looking through autobiographies of different actors, actresses and politicians. As I picked up one on Ben Franklin, I noticed my husband covering up Barack Obama’s books with other books about Ronald Reagan. I started to laugh and he just smiled and placed a book about guns in front of “Dreams from My Father.” At the time I just thought it was my husband being my husband (if you think I’m conservative, hang out with the mister some day), but looking back I realize he was demonstrating the signs of a new breed of conservative.
The breed of which I speak is a take-no-prisoners type of conservative that lives on bacon, hates political correctness, loves the troops, knows the Constitution by heart and has taken the gloves off. They are inspired by the Tea Party but may be a bit too much for the more traditional conservatives therein. Many love and quote Andrew Breitbart and share his fire for shutting down progressive agendas. I think of them as warriors really, in the trenches, fighting the good fight and getting their hands dirty.
If you spend any time in social media, you will see many of these conservative warriors demanding to be heard, which is especially important when our media is impotent, useless and reports propaganda as “news.” They’re out there on twitter, Facebook, doing radio and writing blogs; people like Dana Loesch, Michelle Malkin, Dennis Miller, Ken Wahl, Ann-Marie Murrell, James Woods, Nick Searcy… the list goes on… outspoken, take-no-prisoners conservative warriors on a much different but all too important battlefield doing what they can to tell the truth about the progressive policies that are destroying our people, and our country.
This new breed is fueled by passion and an enduring love of country that makes them nearly impossible to ignore. When you see them you can’t help but feel inspired and want to join in the fight, and share your own voice and ideas. To join ranks and do your part to wake up low information voters up and remind them how important it is to be an American, to be free. For far too long, liberals have exploited traditional media so these conservatives have taken over grassroots efforts and in doing so are influencing ideas, educating the uneducated and changing minds.
Honestly, we need this type of conservative to combat the amount of rhetoric and empty promises democrats have made to this country. They have successfully painted republicans as the party of no, the party of intolerance and the party of old, rich, white men. I hate to admit it, but they have been successful in these efforts. Democrats can market so it’s up to this new breed of conservative to break those molds and shake the stereotypes up. And sure, more traditional conservatives may not like their tactics or the language they use but this is a grassroots war and in war, there is no time to worry about swearing or being a lady or a gentleman.
This new breed, of which I am proudly a part, is coming for the Democrats in 2014… if they thought 2010 was rough with the Tea Party they ain’t seen nothing yet.
