Thanksgiving Is Over, Time For The War On Christmas

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving. I hope you ate well and got caught up on sleep because, conservatives, we have to get ready for the War On Christmas. Ever since the liberals took over everything from the White House to Hollywood, religious liberties have slowly been stripped away, and the pinnacle of this can be seen in the War On Christmas that has been taking over America since sometime shortly after Kennedy got elected. With the help of corporations and the liberal media, they have succeeded in getting this past. Well, it’s time for us to fight back and reclaim our “Merry Christmas” instead of “Happy Holidays”.  It will be a harsh fight, but I know that we can win it by sticking together against those heathens who would rather us say “Happy Holidays”.

Well, that’s how most conservative bloggers out there would characterize the “War On Christmas”, but I am different than them. I have friends of all religions including, but not limited to, atheists, those of the Jewish faith, pagans, and others. We all celebrate our holidays this month in our own individual ways, and no one has a problem with the other celebrating the holiday that belongs to their particular faith. As conservatives, we need to learn how to do this more. You know, live together in harmony with others. Yes, we can still have strong opinions, but we just can’t prevent them from trying to hush the opinions of others because, after all, freedom of speech is a basic principle of our country.

I say all this to say, what is all the hoopla about? I am not going to get offended if the sales clerk at my local store wishes me “Happy Holidays” instead of “Merry Christmas” mainly because I am strong in my faith, and them telling me “Happy Holidays” is not going to lessen my faith one iota. At the same time, I’m not going to say that those of us who are Christians shouldn’t say “Merry Christmas” at all because we should have that right just as others should have the right to wish anybody they want “Happy Hanukkah”, “Wonderful Solstice”, or anything else they wish because we all have freedom of speech and should be able to use it.

So imagine, a world where we could wish anybody a great holiday, regardless of their faith. Whether it be Christmas, Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, or Solstice, we could wish everybody great luck and a good holiday, and we would all be okay with it. It would be a great world, and there would be no need for people to complain about a so-called “War On Christmas”. After all, with all the trouble going on throughout the world, one less war would be a great thing in my humble opinion.

And Happy Hanukkah to everyone out there!

Huffington Post: Giving A Voice To Terrorists And Enemy Combatants

As a conservative, I feel like I should be fully informed about my opinion so I read both conservative and liberal news. One of the liberal websites that I visit the most is Huffington Post because I feel that they are the true voice of the liberal movement. From defending Obama’s every move to bashing conservatives, The Huffington Post is truly the microphone for liberal America. While I disagree with a lot of the information on their website, most of the time I give them the benefit of the doubt and chalk it up to ideology.

 

That was until yesterday. While I did my daily quick scanning of the site, I found an article entitled “A Letter From Guantanamo” that had me outraged. The letter, penned by Guantanamo Bay prisoner Abdelhadi Faraj, chronicled all the ways in which Mr. Faraj felt he had been mistreated since he had been imprisoned at the prison complex off of Cuba’s coast. He told stories of he and other prisoners having been victims of beatings and excessive and invasive medical checks, and he lamented on how cruel the United States government and the soldiers at Guantanamo Bay had been to him and his fellow inmates. At the end of the article, he states that he is going to continue with a hunger strike he has been doing until he gets everything he demands from the United States government.

To which I say, what demands? He and his fellow inmates are mostly terrorists and enemy combatants who have plotted attacks against the United States,and, in many cases, killed American soldiers on the battlefield. They should not be able to demand anything. Most of them, in fact, are scum, and they deserve to rot in those prison cells. After all, the men and women who have died at their hands don’t get a chance to even live because of these individuals, and they should be glad that the United States government is sparing them their lives.

In the meantime, The Huffington Post and other liberal media need to tell America both sides of the story. After all, they didn’t even reach out to the staff at Guantanamo Bay to respond to the accusations, and they treated Faraj’s letter as absolute truth. This shows where their priorities lie, and, to be honest, it makes me sick. They can defend Guantanamo Bay detainees, but they spew nothing but hatred at the men and women who protect their freedoms on a day to day basis.

So conservatives, it’s time to take actions. If this article makes you as angry as it has made me contact The Huffington Post and tell them that this article was not appropriate. Tell them that they need to realize that these people are not heroes, but they are completely the opposite. After all, this blog is read by many young people, and it may shape the way that they look at our troops and our enemies in a negative way. Only by speaking up can we try to stop this from indoctrinating the younger generations and give our future military members hope that they will be respected in future years.

Guns And Agendas: The Media’s Obsession With The Issue

Ever sine Columbine happened in the 1990’s, there has been a huge insurgence of the media covering gun violence in order to carry out an anti-gun agenda. With incidents like the Colorado movie theater shooting and the massacre of the elementary school in Newtown, it has amplified this agenda greatly over the last year. While these issues should be addressed seriously, taking away the rights of Americans is not the way to do. The media didn’t think so though. They decided to tackle the issue with an overwhelming bias. And what happened when these massive events weren’t in the media spotlight? Well, they decided to take isolated incidents and use them for there agenda.

A perfect case of this is when a four year old boy accidentally shot and killed his father when visiting the home of a gun owner in Arizona. The child took a gun that was within his reach and pulled the trigger, killing his father. This tragedy has been reported all over the liberal media with anti-gun sentiments placed throughout the articles. They say that this is a perfect reason to take away guns from Americans, but they don’t realize what the discussion should truly be about this story.

The fact is, the man should have never had a loaded gun, safety off and all, in his home. He should have at least put it on safety, and, better yet, he should have taken the bullets out of the gun. Additionally, he should not have had the gun within the reach of children. They teach anybody that who goes to a hunter safety course, and this tragedy wouldn’t have happened if they would have just followed a few simple rules. This doesn’t get reported in the media though because they don’t want to feature responsible gun owners in their stories because it would hurt their cause.

At while I’m at it, I would just like to say that it was sick what Obama has been doing to help the media. He’s used the Newtown families as props in his sick agenda, and it is a disgrace what he is doing with that tragedy. He needs to realize that he should be taking serious action towards getting guns out of the hands of real criminals. He should not be demonizing the responsible gun owners who follow the law.

To finish, I would just like to applaud those who are standing up for our second amendment rights. We are living in an age where our rights are being systematically ripped from our hands by our government, and those who are protesting these actions are true American heroes. They deserve to be thanked, and I would like to take this opportunity to do that. Without them, who knows where our rights would be now?

Why I LOVE Andrea Tantaros!

The one thing that I admire most about the modern conservative movement is that women are on the forefront of bringing conservative values to the next generation. From familiar faces like Sarah Palin to less recognizable, yet still important, people such as Nonie Darwish and S.E. Cupp, women are leading the charge to keep conservatism around. These women are fearless, and they often speak there minds much more often that men in our movement do. One conservative woman has done this recently, and it has caused quite the backlash in the liberal media.

Andrea Tantaros

The woman I am speaking of is Andrea Tantaros, a Fox News personality who is smart, intelligent, and not afraid to stand up for the values she believes in. This week she told listeners to “punch Obama voters in the face” due to the fact that we have had to suffer through more than four years of our rights being infringed upon by Mr. Obama and his administration. While she, of course, did not mean this literally, the liberals in the media jumped all over as if they were hyenas and she was their prey. From the Huffington Post to smaller publications, liberals all over crucified Andrea Tantaros for making a humorous comment about a very serious issue.

After all, Andrea Tantaros had a huge and extremely relevant point. It has recently come out that the Obama administration has been doing many things to violate our rights as Americans. The IRS has been targeting conservative groups simply for being who they are, and journalists can’t even practice their craft without being monitored by authorities. I know it sounds bad, but that’s just the tip of a gigantic iceberg of lies and deceit that has been tarnishing the image of Obama and his presidency. Obama has no one to blame but himself for all of this though due to the fact that he was the one who started to take away the rights of Americans, and this is why Ms. Tantaros became so upset that she made the remarks that she did.

One of her colleagues, James Rosen, was targeted in the grab of journalists’ email and phone records, and this must have hit close to home for Andrea. She, after all, is an outspoken conservative voice, and she could have very easily been in Rosen’s position of being labeled as a “co-conspirator” in espionage if circumstances were different. That’s why, while moronic liberals go about whining about what she said, I feel that she had sufficient reasons to be ticked off and to express her frustration and anger the way that she did. Liberals in the media would do the same thing if such an incident happened to one of their colleagues, and they should take this into consideration before hurling the first stone at Andrea Tantaros.

So that’s why I say good for her. She is standing up for what she believes in, and she is standing up against our freedoms being taken away from us by Obama and others like him on Capitol Hill. She is a true American hero, and she is one in a line of many conservative women who are standing up against tyranny on a day to day basis. That’s why I LOVE Andrea Tantaros.

Is It Halloween Already?: Because The IRS Witch-Hunt Of The Tea Party Sure Makes It Feel That Way

Since the Tea Party emerged as a political force to be reckoned with in the first couple of years of Obama’s term, liberals everywhere have had it out for the grassroots movement that took the nation by storm. From the beginning, leftist leaders belittled the party by calling those who participated in the protest against big government “tea baggers”, and from there it just took off. Racism was the next tactic used to try and silence the Tea Party as MSNBC talking heads showed isolated instances of offensive signs at the protests. Then came commentator after commentator spouting their opinion that the Tea Party had grown irrelevant. All of this didn’t stop the Tea Party though. They just became stronger.

Over the next few years they found their voice, and they began to develop one of the biggest political revolutions America has ever seen. Their libertarian views that big government should stay out of the lives of its citizens and that taxes should be low made sense with millions of Americans across the country. Though it may have started out small, they eventually grew into a  political powerhouse that Obama and liberals dreaded. That’s when things just got downright mean and ignorant.

While not much had been said about the Tea Party since Obama’s election in November,they have become  the hot talk of the town this weekend when it was revealed that the IRS took an extra careful look at the Tea Party’s taxes. At first, the rumors were widely made fun of by liberals, but when the IRS finally fessed up to doing such a scandalous thing, they were soon put in their place. A witch-hunt against the Tea Party had taken place, and it finally gave conservatives proof that Obama and his administration will do anything to target those who disagree with their socialist, big government policies.

Conservatives in D.C. called for hearing to see just how down and dirty the Obama administration and the IRS had gotten when it came to targeting the Tea Party. Meanwhile, liberals in the media tried to downplay the story every chance that they got. After all, the IRS apologized, and the Tea Party is nothing but a bunch of loons to the liberal media anyway. It was grossly unfair to give such a big story such a little coverage, but it happens every day in the world of the liberal media.

That’s where we have a chance to do something conservatives. In this day and age of social media, we are able to give a voice to the causes we care about most. So tweet, Facebook, and Instagram the causes that are most important to you. For the voice of one thousand ordinary citizens can drown out the lies and deceit that one influential citizen may spew.

Benghazi Answers: When We Going To Get Them?

Four Americans lost their lives in Libya this past September when the U.S. consulate was attacked. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty, and Tyrone S. Woods all bled and died at the hands of extremist Muslims that night, and they deserve for the American government to give them and their families answers. That’s not what’s happening at all though Instead, they have had their deaths ignored, belittled, and dare I say, covered up by the Obama administration and the liberal media.

It’s obvious that for an attack to be that successful one of two things had to happen. The first possible thing that could have happened was that security was majorly lacking in Benghazi (it’s pretty obvious this is the case). This is a shame since the U.S. ambassador and other U.S. workers should be the first to be protected, but the Obama administration may have not had the money to send more security over there since they needed it for their health care plan and stimulus packages. It’s a very likely possibility, and it shows just how bad the Obama administration has mismanaged their priorities.  I hate to tell you my liberal friends out there, but that’s what Al Gore would call an inconvenient truth.

The second thing that could have happened that night was that the attack could have been organized. While Obama and the liberal media have been sticking by the story that the attack was random, more and more evidence to the contrary is coming out. Just this week, a report came out that said Al-Quaida members were involved in the Benghazi attacks Coincidence? I think not. The attack was obviously orchestrated before hand, and I don’t understand why liberals have such a hard time owning up to that piece of truth about what happened that fateful September night.

Currently, a panel is looking into the events of Benghazi, but they are slow moving for sure. The American people and the families of those who lost loved ones don’t have time for these political games though. We need to know what happened. I’m not saying this because it will prove one political agenda correct and disprove another, but I am saying it because we need to know what happened so we can prevent the incident from happening again. When the lives of American are on the line, it is necessary to get this information in the most timely and efficient manner, and, by getting answers ASAP, we can do this.

So let’s try to get our politicians to give us answers. In D.C., the hearing on Benghazi are stalled, and we need to let those who run the hearing know that this is unacceptable. Political games should not be played when it comes to American heroes who have lost their lives, and if politicians won’t stand up for our heroes, we should. That’s the only way we are going to get answers on Benghazi and heal some of the wounds left behind from that horrific tragedy.

Liberal Myth Number 2: If You Stand Up for Conservative Values You Are A Racist

In the world of a conservative activist, one of the most common taunts that we hear from liberals is that we are racist. This myth, which already existed long before the election of our current President, became even more deeply cemented into the liberal psyche after Obama’s election. Those of us who have been in the game for a bit know the tactics, but we are not the ones at risk. The new generation of conservatives are the ones that we need to look out for because they are being bombarded with that message from their peers, their professors, and the media.

Example of how liberals demonize conservatives by calling them racists.

I know this first hand because I am from that generation. I am a bit tougher than others so I am not easily influenced, but I see my peers falling into the lies of liberals. For instance, I remember how afraid some of my friends were to speak out about their disappointment after Obama’s reelection because they felt that they would be targeted by faculty at my university. I understood their fears though because one of my professors wore an Obama T-shirt to class the next day and stated how glad she was Obama had four more years. No one who was conservative said anything due to the fact that the entire term the professor had stated things about Romney’s sexism and racism, and no one wanted to have that put on them.

This type of thing plays out every day in the liberal hotbeds of college campuses. It doesn’t just pertain to Obama though. I have heard those who believe that individuals should come here legally told that they were racist, and that their opinions showed how much “white privilege” they had. Some of these students fought to defend themselves, but other students sat silently as they were scolded. It’s just not right that those of us who stand up for the law are victimized and called racists, but it happens every day in our world. It’s a harsh reality that is spread throughout our society, and the media is the number one place to look when trying to determine how this myth is spread throughout our country.

If you watch any liberal media, you will hear those who are for illegal immigration rant and rave about how they are standing up for equality. Oftentimes, you will even hear them attack those who disagree with the insult of being a racist. It is sickening, but it seems to work as more and more young Americans are brainwashed with such hogwash ideas. It is a sad state of affairs when it comes to the current landscape of our media, but the fact is liberals in the media industry will continue to call those who disagree with them as racist as long as they think it can intimidate the individual(s) they are talking about.

That is where we conservatives can win. Let’s not let these false accusations affect us. We know that we are not racists, and we shouldn’t be afraid to stand up for our beliefs in spite of being called such vitriolic things by liberals. They have problems when it comes to race and their party due to the fact that they demonize African American conservatives. If you want proof, just watch any of the films  that chronicle liberals bias toward African American Republicans. It will make you realize that those who like to throw stones at us have their own fair share of issues, and it will help you to continue on in the fight for conservative values. That way, we can stand strong and spread our values of acceptance, love, and American values to a whole new generation.
