Rob Cunningham of the Georgia chapter of Organize4Palin says it is vital to get people into the theater seats to see Stephen Bannon's "The Undefeated." In an American Thinker opinion piece, Cunningham makes a compelling case for getting conservatives actively involved as "rogue warriors" against the media's campaign to destroy not only our leaders such as Gov. Palin, but ourselves and our cause:
I implore every freedom loving American to see Stephen K. Bannon's documentary on the life and career of Sarah Palin. And furthermore, every conservative, Tea Party activist, free-market capitalist, persons of faith or no-faith, and all influential leaders, regardless of whom their preferred 2012 presidential candidate might actually be, should leverage all their talents, skills, resources and creativity to ensure the maximum number of people experience this movie in public theaters.When Sarah Palin refused to be a non-moving target for the news media, she was roundly criticized for fighting back by not only that same media, but also by members of the GOP elite and even some in the conservative establishment. Such is the power of the media that the conventional wisdom has long maintained that any attempt to push back against its arrogant manipulation is nothing short of suicidal.
Stay with me on this, please.
Why do I make this claim? The simple clarity and raw truth offered in "The Undefeated" stands at the ready to educate tens of millions of citizens, perhaps influencing an entire generation of voters. This documentary deeply connects, on both an intellectual and emotional level, and stirs one's very soul. This film brilliantly serves as a modern-day case study, and clearly illustrates how our agenda-driven news media, entertainment industry and political power brokers brazenly operate, in plain view and with cold-blooded intentionality, in a tireless attempt to destroy a very decent fellow citizen. When presented with basic facts, Americans will recoil in disgust.
If principled republicans, tea-partiers and libertarians choose to no longer remain silent, misinformed or "neutral" while one of our strongest and most influential "movement conservatives" is repeatedly and falsely attacked, we will empower every single person and candidate within our movement.
This movie delivers a massive body blow to the media, it dilutes the effectiveness of liberal scare tactics and will vaccinate millions against infection from traditional "news" reporting. By powerfully highlighting the media's methods of distortion, one of the most powerful weapons used against all conservatives, is damaged.
"The Undefeated" will be released the week of July 15th through July 21st at AMC theatres in 10 major US cities. A positive reception at each of these theaters is critical to ensuring a much larger national audience benefits from this film. Those interested can purchase tickets online at http://theundefeated.cinedigm.com/tickets.html.
In one July week, our entire conservative movement can become enormously stronger if we work together and "get out the viewers." Invite a few friends, visit with your neighbors or organize a youth group. By making a concerted effort to better educate ourselves and our fellow citizens, the best and brightest conservative leaders across our nation will benefit.
It's easy to make a point. It is so much harder to make a difference. If conservatives in ten cities become engaged and encourage all they can to attend "The Undefeated," we'll each be making a positive difference in America. We'll be helping to bring educational value to a generation of citizens and possibly impacting their lives, forever.
But in choosing not to surrender in the war the media has prosecuted against her, Gov. Palin has one key factor working in her favor. That the media is not highly regarded by the general public is a fact no amount of spin can change. Despite Gallup's best efforts to put a happy face on the way the media is regarded by noting a slight rebound in attitudes about the media, its June 29 poll still shows that among the 16 institutions tested, newspapers and television news rank 10th and 11th in confidence. Considerably less than one third of Americans put much trust in what the media tells them, which means that a substantial majority of people recognize a media smear job on Sarah Palin when they see it. The media's war on conservatives in general and Gov. Palin in particular is a campaign the media could lose.
This is why "The Undefeated" is so vitally important. In our review of the documentary, The Power of 'The Undefeated' two weeks ago we commented that the film has the power to change minds, and if enough minds can be changed, then that changes the game. It is critical to reach that 29 percent of Americans who still believe what the corrupt media tells them before we can make media either change its ways or accept its consignment to the dustbin of history. If, as Cunningham says, we can get enough of those 29 percent to sit still for two hours to view "The Undefeated," conservatives can win this game.
