Lloyd Marcus, Tea Party activist and author of Confessions of a Black Conservative: How the Left has shattered the dreams of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Black America, calls out those conservatives who "still crave to be accepted by the liberal media" and have been duped by that same media into accepting the left's narrative about Sarah Palin:
The Left launched their "Sarah Palin is Stupid" campaign the next day after her incredible VP nomination acceptance speech. A woman, pretty, smart, witty, confident and bold with an ability to inspire and fire up the conservative base, Sarah Palin was the Left's worst nightmare. They were livid. The only thing which could have made it worse would have been if Palin was black. The Left would have surely lost their minds.Lloyd Marcus has a point. Though conservatives pride themselves on not being as gullible as their liberal friends, some of them nevertheless seem to be willing to fall for anything rather than stand for something. Those conservatives who buy the Democrat/Media Complex's narrative about Sarah Palin almost always do not resemble movement conservatives in any way, shape or form. They are represented in the corrupt media by the likes of David Frum, David Brooks and Kathleen Parker, and the type is easy to spot. Their modus operandi is to attack other conservatives more often than they criticize the left and its policies.
The clarion call went out, "Palin MUST be destroyed!"
The assault on Palin's intellect intensified daily. Every word out of Palin's mouth was dissected and placed under a microscope. Then, viewed through a lens tainted with the paradigm that "Palin is stupid". Who amongst us could withstand our every utterance judged with such extreme scrutiny?
Conservatives saying under their breath at cocktail parties that Palin isn't too bright is evidence the liberal media's branding of her has worked on some level.
Frustratingly, the facts completely prove otherwise. Palin was extremely successful as Governor of Alaska.
Some on our side still crave to be accepted by the liberal media. They are embarrassed to be named among those "crazy tea party people". Thus, they pander to the Left saying things like, "They're right, Palin is a joke. And yes, we conservatives should be willing to work with liberal democrats". Unfortunately, willing to work with always means compromising our values, not theirs. Thank God, most of us get it. We realize the left simply must be defeated.
Liberal mainstream media, your glory days of distorting the truth, monopolizing coverage and totally controlling public opinion are over. We The People truly are Taking Back America!
In Ronald Reagan's day, they were called Country Club Republicans, and they supported Gerald Ford over Reagan in 1976, with the result being the national disaster that was the Jimmy Carter presidency. Nowadays, they like to call themselves "conservatives," and the liberal media never fails to oblige them. We like to refer to them as Conservative Lite®. To take back America, as Lloyd Marcus urges us to do, we must first defeat these pretend conservatives. Only then can we set about dismantling the crack house government that the Democrats and Vichy Republicans conspired to build. We can't think of a better contractor for such a project than Sarah Palin.
