I am an Andrew Breitbart Conservative!

BeTheTruth

A while back on Facebook I had read somewhere that a couple of people call themselves Frederick Douglass Republicans. Well I would like to toss another term into the mix: Andrew Breitbart Conservative.

AndrewBreitbartQuoteOver the past 13 weeks I had been going through the Pragmatic Primer for Realistic Revolutionaries during these editorials, and in my research on the topics, I realize that I am an Andrew Breitbart Conservative. When I began introducing the Pragmatic Primer, I mentioned that this battle is not Left v. Right, Liberal v. Conservative, or even Democrat v. Republican. This battle is one step DEEPER than that: Alinsky v. Breitbart. The seeds for the major part of this battle were laid when Andrew gave his wonderful speech at the 2012 CPAC just a few weeks before his death.

During that speech he said that many are on to the “Saul Alinsky Bullshit ways” of the Progressive Left and that the 2012 election would be forever known as the “dogwhistle” election. We were right on the cusp of victory with Mitt Romney only to have it grabbed away from us at the last minute. It also showed down the ticket as we barely kept the House and failed to grab the Senate.

In order for us to win the Senate and increase our lead in the House in the 2014 midterms, we have to learn where we went wrong in the 2012 House and Senate elections. Then when we find out where we went wrong we have to learn to not repeat the same things if AND ONLY IF we are serious about winning in 2014 and carry that momentum into 2016. One of the main things that Andrew said, and I use it as my own motto ever since, is “Anyone that’s willing to stand next to me and fight the progressive left, I will be in that bunker, and if you’re not in that bunker, more than shame on you. You’re on the other side!” In fact, let me just play that entire clip for you right now:

 

AndrewBreitbartRighteousIndignationFrontCoverAfter hearing that speech, I knew I was an Andrew Breitbart Conservative, but did not fully embrace it until after I got his book Righteous Indignation for Christmas and then went through the Pragmatic Primer. Now, after reading it many times and going over the Pragmatic Primer on my radio show, I fully embrace it because just like Andrew said at the end of the book on page 232 in the hardback edition:

“These are the years that we will look back on and question whether we did enough for our country and for out children. That’s why I’m so determined, so pissed, so righteously indignant. Excuse me while I save the world.”

Rundown for December 29, 2012

RedRightBlueBanner

Join Rick Bulow and Billie Cotter as they go through the week in news. With 2012 coming to a close, this week’s show will be a little different. They will be going through the entire year with an all-star panel that include the best and brightest from shows all across the online Conservative sphere. Among the panelists will be Kel Fritzi (aka The Red Fox), Patricia Baber (former co-host of Red, Right, and Blue), Germaine Thompson (Host of Conservative Prime Time) and others. A few of the topics they will go through will be the 2012 Campaign and the horrific shootings in Aurora and Newtown. They will also pay a tribute to Andrew Breitbart, a great American Patriot who was taken unexpectedly and at a young age. Your calls are also welcome and of course they will also have Schmuck of the Week.

Come join the fun and frivolity that is Red, Right, and Blue today at 1:30 PM Eastern. The chatroom at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/conservativennationradio/2012/12/29/red-right-and-blue--the-year-in-review will be open 30 minutes early for some last minute show prep and also so the audience can have a little meet and greet with the hosts. If you want to join in the fun, there are three ways to do so.

  1. Call 718-305-7176 about 5 minutes before the show starts if you want to get in the call queue early or you can call in throughout the show.
  2. Call in using Skype. As soon as the show starts there is a little Skype button (or as my good friend The Reactionariez calls it the Skipity Skype button) which will display next to the phone number at the top of the page. As soon as you press it just follow the instructions of the English Lady at the other end and you will be in the call queue
  3. If you are unable to log into the chat, there is another way for you to engage the conversation if you use Twitter. Just tweet your comments or questions using the hashtag #RedRightBlue.

Tell your friends. Tell your enemies. Hell, tell a Liberal. This show is the last show of 2012 and I guarantee you that I will end Red, Right, and Blue on a high note for 2012 and look ahead to what 2013 has in store.

End of the Year Retrospective

Well, 2012 is fast coming to an end believe it or not. So much had happened that it is hard to fit into a blog, both event-wise as well as the friends I had made online. I would like to say to everyone first, thank you for being an inspiration to me this year. Each of you had brought much joy and passion into my life in 2012. Some of you more than others and I will get into that later. One main thing is though we had not met face to face (and for 80% of you I would like to just because you mean a lot to me) you had treated me not as one with a handicap like many I had met in my real life have done. Rather, you welcomed me into your online world as a “normal” person.
Now granted there might be some things we disagree on, and for a few we even came down to verbal blows to the point I wished I would have climbed through the computer monitor and throttle you, but at least for the most part we have been civil to each other and handled our disagreements like gentlemen and not like animals. There are still a couple of issues we disagree on and in 2013 I will get into why I believe the way I do a little more. However, I also realize we are all on the same page and have the same goal in mind – the betterment of America.
There are certain people I would like to thank personally. I had done so in my blog entry on Christmas Day, but will say it here once more.
To Michael B. Smith - we have been through thick and thin from our days on the Herman Cain Dashboard back in the Summer of 2011. While we might have parted ways back in late December 2011 to early January 2012 due to you supporting Santorum when I supported Mr. Newt, I am ever thankful to you for allowing me 2 hours every Saturday to vent and let my crazed mind roam on Conservative Nation Radio.
To Harriet Baldwin and Patricia Baber - Thank you both for being former co-hosts with me on Red, Right, and Blue. No matter what, I still consider you a part of the Red, Right, and Blue family as well as a part of the Conservative Nation Radio family.
To Billie Cotter - Thank you for stepping up and being my co-host on Red, Right, and Blue. We might disagree on a couple of things, but no matter what we always make the show as interesting and intriguing as can be.
To Becca Lower - You have come a long way in the year or so since we had met. I am thankful you had stepped in for Patricia that one time on Red, Right, and Blue and that catapulted you into making your own blog and now your own website at Lowering the Boom. Keep up the good work.
I know there are others I might be forgetting, but as I said at the outset you all have been an inspiration to me over the past year. I would like to wish you all a very happy New Year. Here’s to good friends and good times now and in the year to come!
