Bob Belvedere of TCOTS makes a salient point;
As many commentators in The Rightosphere have pointed out this is, indeed, a war we are in. The Left is seeking, in their own words, to ‘fundamentally transform’ America. Those who use such words, are saying that what exists now must be uprooted and discarded, that not merely the edifice, but the foundation must be torn down and something entirely new erected on it’s ruins. This has been the belief of every single Leftist since the modern Left formed in the mid Eighteenth Century. The only difference in approaches has been between two factions: those who wish to violently tear the existing regime down, like a hollow point bullet to the skull, and those who want to destroy from within, like a metastisizing cancer. The end is the same: the overthrow and utter destruction of the current government. This is why Revolutionaries often impose a new calendar, setting it to the Year Zero or the Year One. (bolding by me)
Such a strategy meets the definition of war.
While Leftists are incredibly ignorant on so many fronts [one glaring example: economics], they do possess a low-cunning that makes them very well-suited to wrecking havoc and sowing Chaos. Add to that a rejection of all Morality, of a belief in The Permanent Things and Right Reason, and you have a potent force ready to do whatever it takes, by any means necessary, to achieve it’s end: the bringing about of Heaven On Earth — Utopia, if you will, or the phrase I prefer: the Immaentizing Of The Eschaton. What you have is a group of people ready to commit any act, no matter how vile, on any person or any group that stands in their way. What you have is Pure Evil.
This is what we are up against. This is War.
The only Utopia Mankind will achieve is in the end by the grace of God, but only if his or her heart is in the right place IYKWIMAITYD
Basically what we have is the tension that inherently happens when the inevitable clash between science and theology hit’s it’s zenith. Will Durant probably explains it better than anyone else ever has;
“Hence a certain tension between religion and society marks the higher stages of every civilization. Religion begins by offering magical aid to harassed and bewildered men; it culminates by giving to a people that unity of morals and belief which seems so favorable to statesmanship and art; it ends by fighting suicidally in the lost cause of the past. For as knowledge grows or alters continually, it clashes with mythology and theology, which change with geological leisureliness. Priestly control of arts and letters is then felt as a galling shackle or hateful barrier, and intellectual history takes on the character of a “conflict between science and religion.” Institutions which were at first in the hands of the clergy, like law and punishment, education and morals, marriage and divorce, tend to escape from ecclesiastical control, and become secular, perhaps profane. The intellectual classes abandon the ancient theology and—after some hesitation—the moral code allied with it; literature and philosophy become anticlerical. The movement of liberation rises to an exuberant worship of reason, and falls to a paralyzing disillusionment with every dogma and every idea. Conduct, deprived of its religious supports, deteriorates into epicurean chaos; and life itself, shorn of consoling faith, becomes a burden alike to conscious poverty and to weary wealth. In the end a society and its religion tend to fall together, like body and soul, in a harmonious death. Meanwhile among the oppressed another myth arises, gives new form to human hope, new courage to human effort, and after centuries of chaos builds another civilization.”
More from Bob;
Last week, many of us got involved in the counterattack against these Leftist bastards, and Friday’s Everybody Blog About Brett Kimberlin Day was, by many accounts, a success. But, this was just an opening salvo in a long offensive. This is why I have been using the ‘D+’ language in my post titles — we have just started a Great Crusade by landing on the beaches and establishing a beachhead. This will be a long and hard slog. Berlin is quite far way at this point.
It is imperative that we keep up the fight, keep the offensive going with as much audacity as possible.
Audacity, always audacity — Rogues, would you live forever?
-The ever-intrepid Michelle Malkin has come up with some ways to keep the offensive going.
Remember what I wrote on Wednesday and what more than 150 blogs and thousands of Twitter activists united behind on Friday?
This is literally a matter of life and death, freedom vs. terrorism. We side with life and freedom.
The massive blogburst about convicted bomber and online terrorist ringleader Brett Kimberlin ended on Friday, but this is an ongoing legal, financial, and emotional morass for the targets. And it has now entangled new victims. It is precisely because each and every blogger, Twitter users, activist, talk show host, and podcaster is potential new prey for sicko Kimberlin and his cabal that we must all stand together.
And it is imperative that we turn awareness-raising into action.
I urge you to take the time to click here and read all of what she suggests.
The Memeorandum thread.
-Stacy McCain has filed another report that includes information on Nina Totenberg’s involvement with Brett Kimberlin.
As he reminds us once again:
What we have here is a remarkable news story, and the story is not about me. It’s not about Aaron Walker or Mike Stack or Seth Allen or Patrick Frey or Erick Erickson or Mandy Nagy.
Tea Party Nation finally decided to chime in today;
Last Friday, in an amazing act of unity, the Conservative Blogosphere united for “Blog about Brett Kimberlin day.”
The idea was simple. Conservative bloggers from all over the nation would blog about Kimberlin and his war against his critics.
Now something else has come up and conservatives should be just as outraged about it. Not only that, they should do something about it.
What is it?
It is the practice of Swatting conservative bloggers.
Swatting is a practice that involves calling 911 from either a spoofed number or a blocked number and relaying information that would get the police to a home in force.
Patrick Frey, who blogs as Patterico, was the victim of a Swatting back on July 1, 2011. Someone called 911, claimed they were Frey and claimed that he had shot and killed his wife. Needless to say, the SWAT team showed up and Frey was taken out of his house at gunpoint in a situation that could have easily ended up with Frey being shot.
Thank you TPN for jumping on the bandwagon. In all, you have some 40,000 plus members. If just a small fraction of them start writing about Lying Felon Brett Kimberlin, we can nip it in the bud…just nip it!
The Daley Gator is keeping up the heat;
This story is ongoing, and it must be kept on the front burner folks. This is not so much about Kimberlin as it is about stopping the thuggery of the Neo-Marxist Left in its tracks! And I would ask EVERY Liberal blogger out there one question. Just one, when will YOUR TURN come? When will these thugs turn on you? See I really do not care about the ideology of the blogger being harassed or bullied, or sued, or swatted. I care about stopping the far Left’s insidious and evil war of freedom of speech!
Spaekking of “swatting” Let me remind you that Erick Erickson has been targeted by that vile tactic, likely because he dared report on Kimberlin.
The story continues gaining momentum. The Sunday “SWATting” of Erickson, a CNN contributor, guarantees that this story won’t go away soon. Michelle Malkin has published a “to-do list” for those who want to put a stop to the intimidation and harassment:
My thinking is Brett Kimberlin is heading into;
