Mark Stevens to Heritage: “This is war.” — AND — A Darrell Issa investigation of left wing bullies?
(Page 3 of 5)
Before that it was Lou Dobbs.
And let’s not forget the just-successfully targeted Naomi Schaefer Riley, recently fired by the leftist-thugs running the laughably but accurately titled Chronicle of Higher Education.
What are we really seeing here? What to do?
Mark Stevens is blunt.
In an enthusiastically received talk he gave at the Heritage Foundation’s 35th Annual Resource Bank conference in Colorado, the man who was bullied by leftists for refusing to withdraw his company’s sponsorship of The Rush Limbaugh Show spoke plainly.
(Note to readers: Here’s the video. Warning: That’s a 450 megabyte file, so it might be best to save it to your desktop, instead of trying to view in a browser. Mark’s talk — following a great presentation by the ACORN-busting Hannah Giles — begins at about 16:40 into the tape.)
Remember. This talk of Mark Stevens’ was delivered before the discovery that some unknown Obama supporter had launched a Fusion GPS investigation of Frank VanderSloot. It was delivered before the firing of Naomi Schaefer Riley
We have to stop using euphemisms. Us. We have to stop saying that there’s a national debate. We have to stop saying that there’s a great divide. We have to stop saying that we’re having a national conversation. None of that is happening. What there is, is a war. There is a war.
There is a war. If we treat it as less than a war we will not win…. This Rush issue and others like it that are happening right now are not boycotts. These are not boycotts. That’s a very sweet term for what it really is: which is, internal American terrorism.
These people are terrorists. You do not have to put on a suicide bomber’s belt to engage in terrorism. Terrorism is the act of invoking fear in people. And when you do that and you do that successfully, you get people to change their behavior and you cave to them and they win.
And as long as we keep playing by the rules of anything but war and not recognize that we are (being) engaged in a terrorist activity, we will lose our country. So we have to change the rules of the game.
Now, think of what Mark Stevens is saying here.
Remember that for the simple act of advertising on Rush’s radio show in the New York area, Mark Stevens was deluged with phone calls and emails threatening his personal safety, threatening his staff, threatening to shut down his company, threatening his clients, telling him his new enemies knew where he lived.
Remember what has happened — is happening — to Mr. VanderSloot. And remember the others.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
