Whipped-Dog Syndrome

10 Jun

I’m nearly finished reading Andrew Breitbart’s new book, ‘Righteous Indignation’.

It’s a great book, full of great stories about his life, the foundation of and eventually the ‘BIG’ website, (Big Hollywood, Big Government, etc.) , but it is also an action plan and a motivational call to arms for conservatives.

It urges YOU to take control of the narrative put out by the Big Media Complex by creating your own stories that expose them for the frauds that they are. Use Alinksy’s tactics against them.

Although there are a great many quotes in this book, Breitbart also urges the establishment Republicans to ‘man up’.

At its core, the Republican Party suffers from whipped-dog syndrome. Its every word and policy is shaped by a defensiveness against its master–and its master is less Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi than it is the mainstream media. Case in point: the last standard-bearer of the Republican Party was the defeated presidential candidate John McCain. McCain spent an entire political career cozying up to the media power structure in Washington, New York and Hollywood. Then when he finally ran, expecting that he would be treated with dignity and respect for capitulating on core conservative principles, the media treated him like a mutt.

Boy, ain’t that the truth.

    More Republicans need to adopt Reagan’s approach, that you can not worry about what the New York Times thinks about you. It is more important to be concerned with communicating to the American people and to connect with them. Trying to appease the media is simply a lost cause, hence their hatred of Palin, who does not try to pander to them.

    Agree that the time has long passed for Republicans to “play nice”. “Bipartisanship” has only gotten us further down the road to a cradle-to-grave Nanny state.

    The politicians who electrify the Conservative and Independent voters the most are those that are principled, and not afraid to take a stand or call out the hypocrisy and foolishness of the Progressives, and their enablers in the Corporate media.
