After Election 2012: WWBD -- What Would Breitbart Do?

Most of the people who are voting for socialism and political correctness are ignorant but well-meaning people who have been duped by others. They have been brainwashed by our educational system, K-12 and above, as well as the main-stream media. This is the result of a long-standing plot to capture the minds of the masses in order to make this a socialist nation. Many of the voters who vote liberally in their youth become wiser with age and vote more conservatively later in their lives. The problem is, the average age when this change occurs is too late with current demographics. We need to fight fire with fire. I don’t propose we broadcast spam on liberal websites like certain liberal posters do at townhall.

I agree with you about the educational system. That's why it is much more important that parents educate their children at home while they are receptive. And monitor what the children are learning and meet more with teachers. It would help the children, teens and the teachers.

You are right. I use to be a democrat. Since 9/11 and living in California .......now I am in my 50s I am a conservative. Very conservative. What is there to do but vote and watch as my vote gets swallowed up by all the liberals who are looking for utopia.

Charles Dean’s Rules of Infiltration:
1. No name calling. When we get people mad we lose all opportunity to reach either their minds or their hearts. Most of the people we’re talking to were fooled by others to believe that liberal politics are good and conservative politics are bad; very few are malicious in their intent.
2. Document all entries so that anyone whose interest you’ve piqued can find and read the source. If we get people reading good material, then they will educate themselves much faster than we can through short arguments in websites and social media.

3. Try to keep arguments as short as possible, without losing the major flow of the logic in your point. Remember, our goal is to plant many small seeds of thought, not a few big ones. People need to learn to think for themselves. We’re just trying to get them started in seeing through the tissues of lies that surround them.
4. Only post items in threads that are related. It can be very annoying to people to be reading through comments on one topic and then come across one that is totally unrelated. Comments like that are generally not well-received.

What I propose is we begin building brief, coherent, well-documented arguments supporting the conservative view: e.g. how the western civilization and the US in particular became the exceptional culture that they are (or possibly were at this point), specific lies and doublespeak by politicians and members of the media or higher education, et cetera. Once we have amassed a reasonable amount of ammunition, we visit liberal websites and insert appropriate comments in the different threads. Remember, our goal is to educate, not to insult and not necessarily to even win arguments.

Start by reading D. Pragers book on "Still the Best Hope" and Mark Levin"s last two books. Much of this education has to start in the home, especially in raising children who have an attitude of gratitude instead of entitlement. The Spanish speaking generally are conservative but their lack of language skills and understanding of our values impede them from teacning their children at home. They came for freedom not for freebies, but their children have been affected by popular culture and "educators" who instill leftist ideology.

As a starting point, what if we help fund an organization such as the Heritage Foundation to put together a coherent series of 30-second tv spots which explain the history and thinking behind our founding?. No politics, just the bare-bones facts.

It's not the liberals we must reach, it's the low information voter who assumes that the country will be OK if it runs on autopilot. Long-term, our K-12 education system must teach civics and the obligations of citizenship What "We the People" really means.

Good plan. Properly implemented, that could reach many of the people watching the mainstream media. As you say, that is a good starting point for reeducating those citizens, but we also need effective plans to reach the millions of young people who are immersed in daily propaganda in our educational system.

Many of us woke up the morning after the election in a daze and I imagine quite a few of us thought, okay…we lost, it is a new day…WWBD-What Would Breitbart Do? None of us can speak conclusively for him, but many of us were so deeply influenced and impacted by his leadership that in different ways his ideas live on inside of us.

Just before he died, Andrew called for a true vetting of President Obama, something that simply did not happen in 2008. Though he did not live to see it, many people led the charge and dozens...
