To quote someone we all know and love, let me be perfectly clear: The mainstream media is the bought and paid for lapdog of the liberal Democrat elite. It will not only never give conservatives a fair hearing but will actively distort, lie and slander in an effort to destroy any conservative it sees as a threat to its masters. So why the hell do conservatives treat its members with anything other than contempt and allow it to set the agenda and exploit fault lines in the movement?
Easy – conservatives tend to be polite, reasonable people with a genuine interest in honest debate and a quaint belief in the efficacy of things like “facts” and “evidence” as a way to demonstrate the truth. No wonder they get rolled. The other side believes in none of those things – its only belief is that leftism must prevail and any other value is disposable if it turns into a liability. The answer is conservative judo – understanding how the Left works and using its own weight and momentum against it. We need to start being less like butt-kissing conservanerd David Brooks and more like butt-kicking conservastud Chuck Norris.
