DAVIDSON: Mobilization, Not Despondence, About Progressive Ideology Will Make A Difference

Despair about progressivism doesn’t change what is happening.

The expanding cultural rift between the Left and the Right, and the opposing views over issues that seemingly have no middle ground, are tearing apart our society. At least 75 million Americans (Trump voters in 2020) are deeply concerned about the fate of our country, perhaps even more so than at any time in our history, including WWII, the Cold War, and 9/11. In those three cases, some measure of unity existed in addressing our common foes.

Counterbalance the Grotesque and Violent

We are a nation infected with an entitlement and ‘social justice’ mentality from which many individuals will never retreat. The Democrat’s long-standing posture, as the party concerned with the common man and woman, has morphed into something grotesque and often violent. We are flooded with great numbers of low-information voters, most having been brainwashed by our educational system. Will the ‘woke’ hustlers and connivers win election after election for the duration of our nationhood?

This we know for sure: Despair about progressivism doesn’t change what is happening in the country or around the globe. All of the email chatter in the world, between ourselves, doesn’t lessen the pace of the destruction.

How can we make a vital difference in the health and vitality or of our nation? For one, support endeavors that counterbalance the effects of the mainstream media. The nation’s major newspapers, including The New York Times, Washington Post and Los Angeles Times, among throngs of others, maintain an unwritten cabal to support Joe Biden, irrespective of his illicit dealings with Ukraine and China, militarization of Washington D.C., deep state malfeasance, destruction of women’s sports, border policy lunacy, gross incompetence, dementia, and everything else.

Media giants as impactful as those cited above have been censoring and contorting the news for generations, while constantly claiming that any view from the Right is antiquated or misconceived. So, seek out other news sources such as Newsmax, OneAmericaNews, Townhall, Politicrossing, FlagAndCross, RedState, and WhatFingerNews.

Let’s Focus our Billions of Dollars

Rather than lament “progressivism,” we need a sustained effort to fund, support, and maintain print as well as television and internet media which truly counterbalance the effects of the mainstream media. We need major new entries into the media landscape.

For all the billions of dollars held by conservatives, instead of simply backing individual candidates and campaigns, let’s redirect public opinion at the “cellular” level. Rank and file liberals have little chance to achieve objectivity because each day they are thoroughly manipulated. Otherwise, many of them could at least become centrists. Note: In contrast, conservatives have no choice but to be exposed to the constant “progressive” beat of the media machine. Hence, we know all about Leftist spin.

It is time to launch a conservative version of National Public Radio, with the scope and backing that NPR enjoys. It is time to launch a second and even a third Fox-type network, or at least how Fox used to be.

The Columbia School of Journalism and other journalism schools will continue to pump out ready-made liberal journalists. We need counterbalancing institutions that will produce conservative journalists, or at least reasonably objective journalists.

Will a Pulitzer Prize be awarded to a conservative journalist? No. Will the Nobel Prize continue to go to the Barack Obamas of the world who did nothing to earn his, and after eight years in office did much to have it rescinded? Yes. Thus, we need to launch our own awards and our own institutions that sponsor them. https://townhall.com/columnists/jeffdavidson/2021/01/31/a-nobel-peace-prize-to-black-lives-matter-n2583972

Keeping the Lefties in Check

We can no longer allow institutions like the ACLU and BLM, and legions of other Open Society funded organizations, to go unchecked in their quest to bring down our nation. Sending more emails to each other, and writing more online comments, as the “progressives” work feverishly to make the U.S. into “just another country” on earth, won’t do much to stop them.

Virtually unchecked, progressives continue to spew their doctrine, which ultimately impoverishes everyone except for a handful of “elite” leaders (see Soviet Union, 1917 to 1989) who enjoy privileged status.

As a political body, a force for good, and a constituency for sanity, let us resolve to erect major institutions that exert influence on the populace with equal, if not greater impact than the liberal cabal. Let’s neutralize the mainstream media, the press rooms, the airwaves, and our universities. This is within our grasp and we have the will.

Andrew Cuomo Should Win The Political Darwin Award

Heck, he should probably get a lifetime achievement Darwin Award based on his handling of the CoronaVirus pandemic.

If there is ever a Darwin Award for politicians New York Governor Andrew Cuomo just earned himself the award—heck, he should probably get a lifetime achievement Darwin Award based on his handling of the CoronaVirus pandemic. The Darwin Awards salute the improvement of the human gene pool by honoring those who achieve the pinnacle of stupidity by accidentally and spectacularly killing themselves most spectacularly. Like the guy who approached the open drawbridge in Louisiana, “lifted up the arm of the safety gate, then get back in while the driver backed up a bit and accelerated hard over the dra-bridge edge.” The car did not make it. The driver and passenger drowned as the car sank into the bayou. They received the award because “You cannot live long if the road’s IQ is higher than your own. In this IQ test, our Double Darwin winners failed; indeed, they set a new low. Because these Texas Men–unlike the Blues Brothers–lacked “Cop Tires. Cop Engine. Cop Suspension, and a Mission From God.” A political version of the Darwin Awards would not involve the death of the winner but would be given to the politician who says the most imbecilic tone-deaf statement at the worst possible time. Based on his latest statements, New York’s ‘Luv Guv” Andrew Cuomo should receive a lifetime achievement Darwin Award. Cuomo has been in trouble thanks to sexual harassment charges and, most importantly, his COVID-19 executive order that lead to the death of thousands of senior citizens earning him the Twitter hashtag #CuomoKilledGrandma. When concerns regarding the nursing home deaths resulting from his order, the Luv Guv made some awful tone-deaf statements, perhaps the worst of which happened in May 2020. A reporter asked, “What would you say to families who have suffered losses inside nursing homes? His callous…

He’s still got it!

There has been no shortage of concerns over the health of our elected officials as of late, and with good reason.  We keep electing septuagenarians who aren’t exactly the perfect specimen of physical or mental health. And so, far too often, we hear these elder statesmen ragging on one another’s condition.  During the 2016 election, we had to watch the painful and frankly scary behavior of Hillary Clinton, who was in continual denial about whatever affliction she was dealing with at the time.  In 2020, it was Donald Trump and Joe Biden arguing back and forth over their stamina and physical aptitude.  At one point, Biden even suggested that he would drop and give us several pushups in the middle of a debate if Trump would be willing to match him. That potentially hilarious incident never occurred, (maybe thankfully, in order to save our nation from that embarrassment), but these feats of strength remain out there, in the ether, just waiting for some poor sap to take the bait. A reporter in Texas was almost that sap this week. Texas Republican Party Chairman Allen West, a 60-year-old former Army lieutenant colonel, did 30 pushups at a press conference outside the state capitol on Wednesday. The pushups occurred near the end of the event, which was to discuss the state’s new abortion and anti-transgender bills. West initially challenged a CBS Austin reporter who showed up late to the event to do 30 pushups in order to make up for his tardiness. After the journalist declined, West did the pushups himself. The crowd counted along and then cheered after he completed them in roughly 22 seconds. Video of the incident shows that West has still got it. https://twitter.com/janestreet/status/1390055667612979204?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1390055667612979204%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.newsweek.com%2Ftexas-gop-chair-lt-col-allen-west-challenges-reporter-press-conference-do-30-pushups-1589432 West has long been an icon in the conservative world, and there is little doubt that this…
