Online Rules for Defeating Moonbats

Currently America’s future does not look bright. But it didn’t look bright at Valley Forge either. When you have been pushed to the edge of a cliff is the worst possible time to stop struggling.

Fortunately the Internet gives us all a means to fight back. I’m 41 has collected advice from highly effective countermoonbats like Pamela Geller and John Hawkins on how bloggers can do it more effectively. I had the honor of providing this contribution:

Be relentless. Liberalism is like rust; it never steps corroding every aspect of society. That’s we why can never stop fighting it. If our attention flags, readers will inevitably wander away. Hammer away with everything you’ve got, day in and day out, not just when you feel particularly inspired.

Be honest. Let the Fox News analysts come up with politically expedient compromise positions. Honesty is what we have to offer that they don’t. Bloggers are the spine and the conscience of the conservative movement. If we sell out, it’s all over.

Unite. We don’t all have to be on the same page on every issue; we would go stagnant if we were. But we are all pushing in the same direction, so we should promote each other whenever possible.

Find your angle. There isn’t much difference between 1,001 blogs and 1,002 blogs all shouting the same thing. Ideally every blog will find something slightly different to bring to the table.

Keep your sense of humor. It isn’t easy to laugh these days, but no one is going to read you if you don’t stay entertaining.

Not everyone finds it feasible to make the time commitment blogs require. But you don’t have to run your own to take part. This site would have gotten nowhere without tips and graphics provided by readers. Equally crucial is promotion. If you like a blog post, get the URL out to your email list. Better still, gather all the followers you can and put it out there on Twitter. The more patriots you follow, the more will follow you back, giving you more reach.

The summer soldiers wandered off after the catastrophic election. It’s up to the rest of us to never let a day go by without putting up resistance.

  • Rules for Raticals

    Use rules for raticals #5. Mock, scorn and ridicule the glorious socialist utopia which is a choom smoke pipe dream that will never happen.

    Excellent points, Dave; very well-written!

  • Stephan The Original

    Dave, I have to say your persistence post-election was a lesson for me. Keep going!

    So, did you think the Muslim-in-Chief was going to let his radical, terrorist brothers in the Muslim Brotherhood be overthrown by the Egyptian people who, like us, are only now seeing what mindless voters can do to a country?

    Hunting liberals on twitter for sport is great fun, rub their noses in facts, on public, popular hashtags for all to see their comical and pathetic ignorance.

    And dont forget to comment on all leftist “news” outlets to clarify and put into perspective laughable leftist propaganda.

    Again, making liberals squeal like stuck pigs is good, wholesome fun, and its own reward. Make them expose themselves for the dolts they are, in their own words.

    Visit Salon, NYT, PBS, NPR, Mother Jones, etc… and make yourself heard. Skewer leftist nonsense with cold hard facts.

    And it shows.
    This household has not purchased a subscription to a newspaper in years.
    It is disconnected from network TV
    And satellite TV has never penetrated these walls.
    So why is it that I find myself constantly playing newsman to people that have 24/7 access to ALL these things ?
    Thanks, Dave

    Good stuff Dave. Since stumbling across your blog in search of like minded conservatives I’ve made it my main source for news stories and laughter. I’ve also been educated quite a bit by yourself and some of the frequent posters. Excellent work, keep up the good fight.

    “Keep your sense of humor.”

    I laugh out loud every time I buy a box of ammo.

  • Kevin R.

    I’m not a blogger but personally my first rule is to always keep in mind that the real issue of our time is individual sovereignty and our birthright to live our lives in independence on our own terms. Everything else I believe in in the political sense are just tools to that end and moonbats in debate of any sort will always try to steer their argument to a swamp of minutia rather than the core fundamental issue of our time – liberty or tyranny.

    Take the “tax debate.” Moonbats will come up with all kinds of stupid minutia over whether or not the rich should be taxed more. They’ll go off on all kinds of stupid tangents. None of it has anything to do with the fundamental issue involved, individual sovereignty and liberty and the proper maintenance of it, and everything to do with dragging the issue into the swamp of some egghead intellectual minutia in the hopes that the unwary will be sucked into a morass of soporific quicksand.

  • A. Levy

    Remember something the republicans seem to be incapable of learning, or simply lack the backbone to do. Given the fact that they control the MSM, the only way to defeat the left is to use their own tactics against them. Facts and logic have no effect.

    You should try going outside every once in a while.

    Bitching and complaining on blogs amounts to nothing if you dont have the testies to say it in public.

    You could always use those two magic words? PROVE IT!…reaction will then be “you racist”,…repeat,..”PROVE IT”…..and continue.
