Because you can't do both....
America is at a crossroads. President Trump, for the moment, has bought us some time. He is but one man and can only do so much..and yes...so much he has already done but...the America we leave for our posterity will only be great again if YOU engage in this war and only IF you engage in ways that will defeat our ever powerful enemies.
Our enemies are united. We are not....
Our enemies, however you define them, progressives, far left thugs, liberals, feminists, socialists , communists, etc....are in this to win it and have been for more than a century.
Our enemies are so committed to their cause that even in the face of imminent exposure for all their corruption they march on....unabated ....business as usual...because they have picked the hill they want to die on. Have you?
The election of President Trump was a gift from God and the potential we on the New Right have right now is not something we will ever get again....and we are squandering the moment.
Social media has allowed new, creative, and productive minds to unite and thrive and have influence over things no one in history could ever have imagined. In 2010 I attended a conference where Rudy Guiliani was one of the speakers. He said something that day which was one of two things that stuck with me and there were several other great speakers there including Colin Powell(not a fan), Leigh Anne Tuohy, Lou Holtz, Terry Bradshaw, John Walsh, and several others. Rudy stated that cell phones combined with the internet were changing our world in ways that no one, not even the most powerful and smartest among us, could see right now. He called the internet the great equalizer in that never before had the common man had so much access to the same things that great and powerful men had and he thought if used right would be a game changer for mankind. Was he spot on or what? I'll tell you what the 2nd thing I remember from that day is at the end of this post.
Most of you that read me follow me on twitter and you are aware of the drama that pops up from time to time between some of the more influential among us. Drama is a natural part of life and has been with us since the beginning of time. A lot of people get bent out of shape and think it's the end of the world and that it should never happen. I'm not one of those people. There can be good drama (POTUS has this down) and bad drama (see Aaron Burr vs Alexander Hamilton). The problem with a lot of the current drama the New Right finds itself enmeshed in is it's drama that is dividing us. Egos take over our brains on a regular basis and either you overcome that deficiency or you feed it....and you go after others on the right who get under your skin, those who perhaps have wronged you in some way, those who perhaps you have a righteous grievance with and you make this drama public....because you can.
I'm no saint. I have previously fed into the drama but I'm trying to make a conscsious effort to unite ....and not to divide.
I'm not going to dredge up all the drama I have witnessed on the New Right and unless you have been following this stuff closely for the last year you would probably be amazed by some of the characters who were actively seeking to divide and who have hopefully realized they aren't as powerful as they thought they were. I have unfollowed people on twitter I avidly followed during the campaign because of this but I am open to the fact that there is room on the New Right for all kinds of people. There is room for the 24/7 cheerleaders. There is room for those who may disagree with POTUS from time to time. There is room for flawed and imperfect people and more of us need to realize this.
We are at war, like Andrew Breitbart so famously said...may he rest in peace knowing the legacy he left behind is carrying on that brushfire of freedom that he lit when he so bravely took on the left and the MSM. If we don't start acting like this is war, we are going to lose it.
When you are on facebook or twitter and you see drama, before retweeting or sharing, ask yourself a few questions.
Just because you can share something doesn't mean you should. Think before you tweet. The elites have been so successful these past few decades by creating diversions and distractions that get you focused on the shiny thing over here meanwhile they are destroying every vestige of our constitutional Republic while we are all distracted. One of the ways they have been able to maintain control over us is by dividing the more effective groups among us. When they see a group of people who are smart, productive, and having influence on more and more people they go to work. They plant people within our ranks whose only goal is to DIVIDE. Whether by making us look bad (see Richard Spencer) or by creating drama that will make those on our team pick sides. I see so much potential for our side to outsmart the left and I keep hoping those among us who have a huge following will stop falling for the innate human need to be seen as smarter than the other guy. Do you want to be right at the expense of dividing the team? If someone on our side makes a mistake or does something you don't like is it always necessary that you make it a public feud just so you can have people pat you on the back and reinforce your righteous point of view?
I agree there are some battles that need to be public and need to be aired out for all the world to see so we can weed out those among us who are hurting the movement or just in it for themselves or who might be paid opposition (see Richard Spencer) but if the drama involves catty type mean girl drama (guys can do mean girl drama too) or petty little squabbles that do NO ONE any good except yourself because you get to vent then maybe just give it a night, sleep on it, and ask yourself is this going to benefit the movement or divide the movement.
I am going to ask myself before I tweet about drama on the right...who benefits? If' it's not my side...I'm not feeding the drama.
Think before you tweet.
How about the Lord's Prayer before you share?
I have no idea what's going with the Bannon/Trump drama. I have no idea whether any of it's true or whether it's part of a ruse. I only know the drama doesn't benefit my side so I'm not sharing anything about it unless it will unify the New Right.
You have more power now than you think you have no matter how many people you have following you. If you can influence one person you have no idea how many people that one person can influence. You have an exponential ability to reach more people than anyone in history ever had so use this power wisely. We are at a crossroads and I don't want to squander the opportunity we have here to change the course of human events. Be the change you wish to see in this world and stop falling for the tools the elites use to divide us.
Right now you have as much power as the Shadowmen ever had....if you wake up and realize that what's happening is bigger than yourself. Stop taking things so personally. Stop taking yourself so seriously. Someone wrongs you or maybe they wrongly call you out...is it worth dividing the movement? If not, then work it out amongst yourselves. Every petty squabble makes your enemies smile and friends discouraged because they have to choose a side.
I'm not choosing sides other than the side I'm on. I hope in 2018 we can all be wiser than we were in 2017. Drama is going to arise...of that I'm sure. Will you feed it or defeat it by rising above it?
Do you want to win .....or divide because you can't have both.
P.S. The 2nd thing I remember from that conference I attended which I mentioned earlier was two words said by John Walsh. "Saddle Up". John spoke a little about the horrible murder of his son at the hands of a demon. He was depressed and despondent as anyone would be. He had a friend who was trying to convince him to do the show America's Most Wanted. His friend told him the world needed him to fight back against the evil in this world and though his son was gone he could help other parents find justice. His friend told him to "Saddle Up"...that he had work to do. I am tearing up just remembering him utter those words and how hard it must have been for him to "Saddle Up".
Well friends...we have much work to do before us and just like John Walsh found strength in fighting for justice for other parents we too should be fighting for our posterity. Their future depends on us. So Saddle Up....and start uniting and not dividing.
The success of this movement depends on you.
You have more power than you think you do...use it wisely.
United we stand. Divided we fall.
That is all......
Andrew Breitbart knew who our enemies were/are and fought them...he set the winning example so let's follow it and focus our energies on our enemies...and not our friends ...
After watching Stefan Molyneux's take on this whole Steve Bannon mess I must include his video ....it is profound...please watch it
