There may be some strategic advantage to informing your opponent that you are about to launch an all-out blitzkrieg against the principal conservative media outlets and personalities. Off hand, I can’t think of what it is. No one I know is quaking before the threat.
Mind you, this is not just the usual general harassment. It’s not the usual opposition research, or the usual cacophony of liberal complaint. No indeed. David Brock, MM’s founder, said that he would wage guerrilla warfare and sabotage against Fox News, while claiming that Fox was the sotto voce of the Republican Party and not a legitimate news outlet. That’s really funny. But it does go to illustrate just how far from the mainstream of American thought these elitist Marxists really are.
According to information leaked and picked up by conservative outlets, Media Matters is hiring every commie shyster they can find and they intend to do far more than harass network sponsors. They fully intend to use the politics of personal destruction to disrupt and, if possible, destroy the lives, careers and families of conservative media figures. Rupert Murdoch and his business interests will be attacked ruthlessly.
It came to me that Fox, and other conservative media and artists, don’t have to fight this battle alone… and shouldn’t have to. Fox has carried the remarkable story of the rise of the American Patriot Movement from the very beginning… and even then I sensed that this movement could be huge. That turned out to be something of an understatement.
There’s an awful lot of really clever and well-educated conservatives out there… millions of us in fact. If Fox and Rupert Murdoch can’t take on Media Matters… we can.
If I’m not mistaken, Mark Levin’s Landmark Legal Foundation has been keeping several eyes on the antics of Media Matters, along with other assorted reptiles. What we can do is tear into Media Matters the way they intend to tear into Fox. Forward whatever you can find to people like Mark, or to the various Patriot sites. Trust me, they’ll pick it up, check it out and run with it.
I can’t help but think, all things being equal, that conservatives will withstand close scrutiny far better than their leftist counterparts. Let’s expose these snakes.
Semper Vigilans, Semper Fidelis
