The relentless drumbeat of insanity from the left will work if we let it

Update: As if on cue, leftist-​operated Face­book is turn­ing to lib­eral “fact check­ers” in their quest to quash the scourge of free speech fake news. As you read the arti­cle, keep this in mind because the drum­beat is get­ting louder every day. Folks, if con­ser­v­a­tives don’t get louder, we’re going to get drowned out. Never under­es­ti­mate the abil­ity of left­ist pro­pa­ganda to turn good peo­ple to the left.

Lib­eral media is run­ning with so many nar­ra­tives right now that it’s get­ting hard to keep up. Rus­sia rigged the elec­tion. Obama is leav­ing the econ­omy in pris­tine con­di­tion. James Comey rigged the elec­tion. Snowflakes are being trig­gered by any­thing asso­ci­ated with Trump. Fake news rigged the elec­tion. Trump is going to take us to war against China, Iran, Mex­ico, North Korea, and every­one else (other than Rus­sia). The elec­toral col­lege needs to unrig the election.

Just when we thought that the flood­gates of left­ist pro­pa­ganda was fully open dur­ing elec­tion sea­son, the media has some­how opened them up even fur­ther. The sad real­ity is that if we, the con­ser­v­a­tive media and activists, don’t do some­thing to stop it, their plan is going to work. We’re going to expe­ri­ence a lib­eral revival based on sheer brain­wash­ing that hasn’t been seen since the Rea­gan era.

Things are actu­ally much worse than they were in the 80s because now we have the inter­net and social media. Both venues are dom­i­nated by left­ist ide­ol­ogy; for every con­ser­v­a­tive blog or news out­let out there, the left has a dozen to counter them. They have the advan­tage on social media sites, not because there aren’t enough con­ser­v­a­tives using them but because their “algo­rithms” favor lib­eral perspectives.

The orig­i­nal rea­son I started my con­ser­v­a­tive news aggre­ga­tor is the same rea­son I love writ­ing for DaT­e­chGuy. Con­ser­vatism needs more voices and it needs those voices to be louder in order to break through the false nar­ra­tives per­pet­u­ated by the left. We are fight­ing a two-​front war. On one hand, we have the known ene­mies on the left with lib­eral politi­cians, media, and indi­vid­u­als spread­ing their agenda. On the other hand, we have RINOs in office who are push­ing the GOP to adopt more “mod­er­ate” poli­cies, most of which would be con­sid­ered out­right lib­eral just a few years ago.

The mod­ern con­ser­v­a­tive move­ment is in dan­ger. While most of you are likely immune to the swarm of nar­ra­tives the left is push­ing right now, we have to acknowl­edge that most Amer­i­cans are not. Just because they don’t trust the media doesn’t mean that the media doesn’t affect their world­view. We are all being bom­barded with sto­ries on tele­vi­sion and the inter­net that tell us every­thing is going to fall apart with the GOP in con­trol of the gov­ern­ment. This “chaos strat­egy” works. As a strange man once pointed out, if you tell lies often enough, they become the truth.

We can­not be lazy. We can­not become com­pla­cent. We def­i­nitely can­not spend another moment bask­ing in our elec­tion vic­to­ries because the left is already hard at work try­ing to reverse them. They want to see big gains in 2018. They want to see big­ger gains in 2020. To accom­plish this, they will paint Amer­ica as a nasty place that’s falling apart because of the Repub­li­cans. More impor­tantly, they’ll blame con­ser­v­a­tive philoso­phies for every bad inci­dent, herd­ing as many Amer­i­cans as pos­si­ble into embrac­ing their lib­eral ideology.

I have to do my part to stop this. YOU have to do your part as well. No, I’m not talk­ing to every­one who’s read­ing this. Some peo­ple sim­ply don’t have the time to invest into a polit­i­cal project and are lucky to have the time to even read the occa­sional arti­cle. There’s no fault assigned to those who are unable to help. On the other hand, those of you who have a voice need to make it louder. Those of you who can build a voice should start doing so now.

It doesn’t require start­ing a blog or a YouTube chan­nel, though that would be nice. It can be done through word of mouth, social media, let­ters to the edi­tors of local pub­li­ca­tions, or com­ments left in any of these venues. We need to call out the left’s lies. We need to high­light the right’s goals and perspectives.

Today is the day that con­ser­v­a­tives need to real­ize the war is not over. We may have won some elec­tions, but we’re still the under­dogs. The left has more resources and advan­tages. We need to fight their pro­pa­ganda even more tena­ciously than we fought dur­ing the elec­tion. Oth­er­wise, the gains that were made in 2016 can be eas­ily wiped away in 2018 and 2020.

Update: As if on cue, leftist-operated Facebook is turning to liberal “fact checkers” in their quest to quash the scourge of free speech fake news. As you read the article, keep this in mind because the drumbeat is getting louder every day. Folks, if conservatives don’t get louder, we’re going to get drowned out. Never underestimate the ability of leftist propaganda to turn good people to the left.

Liberal media is running with so many narratives right now that it’s getting hard to keep up. Russia rigged the election. Obama is leaving the economy in pristine condition. James Comey rigged the election. Snowflakes are being triggered by anything associated with Trump. Fake news rigged the election. Trump is going to take us to war against China, Iran, Mexico, North Korea, and everyone else (other than Russia). The electoral college needs to unrig the election.

Just when we thought that the floodgates of leftist propaganda was fully open during election season, the media has somehow opened them up even further. The sad reality is that if we, the conservative media and activists, don’t do something to stop it, their plan is going to work. We’re going to experience a liberal revival based on sheer brainwashing that hasn’t been seen since the Reagan era.

Things are actually much worse than they were in the 80s because now we have the internet and social media. Both venues are dominated by leftist ideology; for every conservative blog or news outlet out there, the left has a dozen to counter them. They have the advantage on social media sites, not because there aren’t enough conservatives using them but because their “algorithms” favor liberal perspectives.

The original reason I started my conservative news aggregator is the same reason I love writing for DaTechGuy. Conservatism needs more voices and it needs those voices to be louder in order to break through the false narratives perpetuated by the left. We are fighting a two-front war. On one hand, we have the known enemies on the left with liberal politicians, media, and individuals spreading their agenda. On the other hand, we have RINOs in office who are pushing the GOP to adopt more “moderate” policies, most of which would be considered outright liberal just a few years ago.

The modern conservative movement is in danger. While most of you are likely immune to the swarm of narratives the left is pushing right now, we have to acknowledge that most Americans are not. Just because they don’t trust the media doesn’t mean that the media doesn’t affect their worldview. We are all being bombarded with stories on television and the internet that tell us everything is going to fall apart with the GOP in control of the government. This “chaos strategy” works. As a strange man once pointed out, if you tell lies often enough, they become the truth.

We cannot be lazy. We cannot become complacent. We definitely cannot spend another moment basking in our election victories because the left is already hard at work trying to reverse them. They want to see big gains in 2018. They want to see bigger gains in 2020. To accomplish this, they will paint America as a nasty place that’s falling apart because of the Republicans. More importantly, they’ll blame conservative philosophies for every bad incident, herding as many Americans as possible into embracing their liberal ideology.

I have to do my part to stop this. YOU have to do your part as well. No, I’m not talking to everyone who’s reading this. Some people simply don’t have the time to invest into a political project and are lucky to have the time to even read the occasional article. There’s no fault assigned to those who are unable to help. On the other hand, those of you who have a voice need to make it louder. Those of you who can build a voice should start doing so now.

It doesn’t require starting a blog or a YouTube channel, though that would be nice. It can be done through word of mouth, social media, letters to the editors of local publications, or comments left in any of these venues. We need to call out the left’s lies. We need to highlight the right’s goals and perspectives.

Today is the day that conservatives need to realize the war is not over. We may have won some elections, but we’re still the underdogs. The left has more resources and advantages. We need to fight their propaganda even more tenaciously than we fought during the election. Otherwise, the gains that were made in 2016 can be easily wiped away in 2018 and 2020.
