Democrat intimidation — and how to fight it
From American Thinker, an excellent piece that outlines a strategy to fight intimidation from the Democrats. It really is simple: don't let them get away with their lies. Throw their lies right in their face. Here are the closing paragraphs.
[...] Ultimately, they hope to intimidate us from voting for our favored candidates or voting altogether. So now members of the "Party of Tolerance and Diversity" are reduced to nothing more than the "Party of Intolerance, Intimidation and Invective."
What do we do about this? We don't let it intimidate us. We buy a dozen bumper stickers and replace them as needed. We put up sign after sign, even if we have to install a surveillance system. We stick up for each other. We get out the vote, we march, we rally, we protest, we assemble, and we continue to do it peacefully and with respect. And we vote.
But most importantly, we call it what it is and throw away their made-up rules for what is and isn't politically correct.
When Louise Lucas says that those who aren't voting for Obama are racists, we need to call her out for her racism and intimidation. When liberals label us intolerant because we prefer civil unions to changing the definition of marriage, strike back and point to their intolerance of religious views. If they talk about the Republican war on women, remind them that since Obama took office, 800,000 more women are unemployed and the poverty rate among women is the highest it has been in 17 years (from 13.9% in 2009 to 14.5% in 2010). If they talk about how we don't care about the poor, remind them that median household income has declined under Obama; unemployment has hit the young, the black, and the poorest the hardest; over 46 million people are on food stamps; and unemployment (the best way out of poverty) has been at 8.2% for over 40 months.
When Obama and his minions talk about how the government built the roads, bridges, and schools that account for our success, remind them that a ubiquitous and omniscient government is not responsible for that success -- the People are. The government is nothing without our work, our enterprise, our industry, our ingenuity, and our tax dollars. The People made this country what it is -- not the Congress or the presidency -- and we are responsible for this country's largesse and our individual success, no matter if we engineered it, mined it, hammered it, used it, or paid for it.
So, from now on, don't play the politically correct game. Throw it right back at them. It's violent, offensive, repulsive, intrusive, racist, bigoted, intolerant, or divisive. It sets a bad example for the young, it violates our rights, and it threatens not only a civil society, but a free society as well.
And don't back down or cower because of this thuggish behavior. This is a time for valor, a time for all of us to take a stand. Our soldiers do not cringe in the face of danger just because the enemy has a gun. Neither should we.
