In little to no time, our list posts have become the most popular and well read articles at NewsReal Blog. When we first started featuring them, we hoped our readers would enjoy them, but we did not expect the tremendous success they’ve had. Many of them are read by tens of thousands of individuals and when we receive (positive) feedback, you can bank on it it’s about a list published that day.
In order to make our list posts even better we’ve decided to select a group of authors to, week in, week out, write list posts, and to put someone (yours truly) at the helm of this team, whose main responsibility lies in assisting these ‘list posters’ to help them deliver even better, more appealing products. From today onwards we will also run a post Sundays introducing the new list posts; that post – of which this is the first one – can function as the place to go to find the list posts and read them.
This week’s post are all of exceptional quality. Many of them are funny, most are in response to recent news and developments, and all of them will set off leftists like never before. In other words, the only people who won’t enjoy these posts will be the likes of Keith Olbermann – which, of course, is most definitely a good thing.
OK, that’s enough for a general introduction, on to the individual list posts published today!
In his list post written for our The Concession Stand sub-blog (about popular culture) Loran Blood takes a closer look at the classic TV show The Outer Limits. In “The Top 10 Most Conservative Episodes of The Outer Limits“ Blood proves that, once upon a time, TV Science Fiction was literate, thoughtful, and could, on occasion, be profound. If you’re longing back for the good old days in which you could watch your favorite television show without being lectured to by know-it-all leftist activists, this is the post for you.
The news of last week was, of course, the massacre in Tucson, Arizona. Six people were killed, many others wounded. The shooter, Jared Lee Loughner, was not inspired by any political ideology, but by a personal hatred for Representative Gifford and his own personal demons. In other words, the man’s a freak. That did not prevent leftists from accusing conservative leaders such as Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck from creating a climate of hatred in which such terrible crimes naturally occur, however. After all, never let a good crisis go to waste; not even when there’s bloodshed involved.
That’s why our very own Cassy Fiano collected “The Top 10 Reactions to the Arizona Shooting” (plus a dishonorable mention for Hanoi Jane). After you’ve read this post you can’t help but conclude that the Left has become so depraved that even Saul Alinsky himself would feel uneasy with their tactics. Well, the man who dedicated his Rules for Radicals to Lucifer would probably approve of them, of course, but I’m sure you get my drift.
One of our best read contributors and a true feminist hawk star on the rise, Megan Fox, realized that this wasn’t exactly the first tragedy ruthlessly exploited by the Left. In fact, our merry socialist friends have transformed using human suffering for political gain into quite an art. Here are the “Top 10 Tragedies Exploited by the Left.” Read this post, bookmark it, and be sure to bring it up whenever a leftist pretends to actually care about people.
While we’re talking about bookmarking posts, be sure to do the same with Diane Schrader’s “Top 10 Facts About the Arizona Shooting to Educate Your Friends on the Left.” In this remarkable post, Schrader refutes just about every ‘argument’ employed by progressives to link the tragedy in Tucson to conservatism. Force leftists to read it and watch them weep. Well, or at least run away with their fingers in their ears yelling “I can’t hear you, I can’t hear you!”
Of course there are more subjects conservatives care about than the massacre in Arizona (horrific as it – and depraved the reaction of the Left to it – may have been). Rob Taylor is concerned with growing the conservative base – which is always a good idea. What are the groups and who are the people conservatives have ignored for too long a time? How can the conservative movement be expanded? To whom do we have to reach out? Read “Top 5 Potential Allies Conservatives Ignore – At Our Peril” to find out.
And that brings us to the last – but certainly not the least – of this week’s list posts: “Stuff Leftist People Like #21 – #30 (AKA Top 10 Things Leftists Like Continued),” by Scott Spiegel. What sends a thrill up a progressives’ leg? What makes his heart beat faster? To give you some clues: massive human suffering, destroying individualism and Big Government are all on the list.
These are this week’s list posts. There’s something in there for everyone: if you are interested in popular culture, Loran Blood’s article is the perfect fit for you. Prefer to read about the depravity of the left? Go check out the posts on the Arizona shooting by Megan, Cassy and Diane. Want to understand the Left? Go read Scott’s piece. And if you care deeply about expanding the conservative movement, you can’t afford to skip Rob’s list post about groups conservatives should reach out to, starting today.
Read these posts, enjoy them, and let us know your thoughts.
