Great Analysis From Another Conservative Lady

The first time I saw this young Lady on Fox I was smitten. Smart and gorgeous.
(It's a Marine thing. Deal with it.)

Conservatives Can't Be Silenced

The left is legendary for its protests and ability to challenge, organize, and sow discord. For generations we’ve seen marches, burning bras, and human barricades galore. But when Americans question a democratically — and arguably leftist-controlled — government, freedom of assembly must be more than simply discredited, the left responds. It must be stopped. This year alone, we’ve seen progressives shift from downplaying the discontented mood of the nation to flat-out panic.

It started with the tea parties. As thousands gathered across the country, the far left sniffed at their concerns, and the mainstream media failed to acknowledge their growing popularity. Many discounted their effectiveness and alleged, absurdly, that Fox News was funding them.

So what did these “champions of free speech” do? They tried to silence it, of course. The Obama administration was so threatened that the truth would take hold that the Department of Homeland Security issued a memo to first responders to be on the lookout for “radical right-wing extremism.”

No memo like this was issued when MoveOn.org members were showing up at town halls in 2003 and 2004 to voice their rage over the war in Iraq.
