There’s much great content by Conservative bloggers, but so little time to read. I’m referencing, today, a few pieces that I feel are especially pertinent to our American freedoms and our victories. If you haven’t gotten to them, I’m providing the link. If you have already read them, then I’ll compile a nice little list for easy reference for myself.
1) The Signaleer profiles National Guard: Who are We? RTO Trainer takes on a syndicated editorialist who refers to some reports out of Iraq as “the daily slaughter,” and then goes on to mention “the apparent lack of professional troops…”. RTO Trainer slices through the column with honest dialogue and an obvious well of knowledge. This is an article to file under “meaty-Patriotism”. Referring the National Guard, here is a small snippet of RTO Trainer’s words:
“The policy has worked, precisely as billed and precisely as designed. So, despite the natural wish of the public to keep us safe, that desire is at odds not only with the job description, part-time or not, but also with the assigned task. Just as you would not prevent the police officer from responding to an armed disturbance or a firefighter from walking into a burning building, don’t try to prevent us from completing our job. Far more importantly, don’t give us a job to do and then repent at your leisure (it is not our leisure) as to its necessity”.
I love this article, and am humbled by it.
2) The Amboy Times (whose moniker states: “articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy”), puts up The List of Things That Offend Muslims. This article links the reader to real examples throughout the world: offense at the English Flag (being flown in in England), The new Apple Store in Manhattan, it is offensive to Muslims – and you won’t believe why, The Cross, The Bible, movies, and even food. This article is pertinent to Victory and Freedom because, as The Amboy Times says:
“The West needs to come to grips with this fact and start standing up for our God-given rights of free speech, free expression and freedom of religion, lest we surrender those rights to a theocratic movement bent on removing our Constitutional freedoms that we hold dear. In this case, our tolerance will lead to intolerance”.
If I understand correctly, “this list is a work in progress”. Check it out – you will be amazed, as well as appalled.
3) Wake up America reports on the plans of America’s Veterans to be present at the “leftist activists” march on Washington, D.C. on March 17th. Wake up America leads into this information with this:
“I’ve said a time or two (or more) in the past that the veterans of our nations armed forces will not sit by silently and let our younger brothers and sisters currently bearing arms be the subject of ridicule and harrassment by a group of people who don’t know their ass from a hole in the ground”.
The high-profile names of the “leftist activists” tells you where this story is going:
“The group, led by Cindy Sheehan, Jane Fonda, Ramsey Clark and their ilk, plan to gather March 17 at the Vietnam Memorial Wall to begin a march to protest America’s involvement in the Iraq war. The date marks the fourth anniversary of the war’s beginning.”
Then this quote from a veteran and member of The Gathering of Eagles who is Calling all Eagles.
“The anti-war/anti-America group cannot be allowed to use the Vietnam Memorial Wall as a back-drop to their anti-America venom and stain the hallowed ground that virtually cries out with blood at the thought of this proposed desecration … it must not happen,” said veteran Bud Gross. “… All Americans are invited to support our effort, which is intended as a defender of hallowed ground and intended as a non-violent competition between those that would sell out America and those of us who support freedom and keeping the fight with the enemy on distant shores.”
There is much more information, including a list of contributors, both monetary and those who will lend their fame(Maxine Waters, for one) to the “Leftist activists” at Wake up America, including the latest updates on the Veteran’s counter-protest. March 17 is just a month away.
