Six Bullets Going Straight at Progressivism’s Heart

Posted on January 23 2011 9:01 am
Michael van der Galien was born in the Dutch city of Leeuwarden in 1984. For as long as he can remember, he has been obsessed with the United States. When he was 17 years old, he started blogging - of course about America. His articles have been published at Big Hollywood, Pajamas Media, Hot Air (the GreenRoom) and Right Across The Atlantic. He's also an editor for the Dutch conservative blog, De Dagelijkse Standaard.

One of the reasons I love being in the news and opinion business is that there’s always something going on. There’s not a day that goes by without some important news. There’s always something happening in the world, and we serve as your eyes and ears. Every single day is filled with adrenaline; there’s always some front on which we, conservatives have to defend ourselves against progressives, and there’s always another front where we’re forcing them to play defense.

On the other hand, one of the main reasons I hate doing what I do is that, well, there’s always something going on. We live in an overhyped world. A day without a hype is a day not lived. Or that’s at least what the mainstream media would like us to believe. Many of these hypes don’t matter in the grand scheme of things. We talk about them today as if they’re vital, but have forgotten all about them tomorrow.

That’s why I’m so delighted and proud to be part of NewsReal Blog‘s List Post team. This team isn’t into the ‘hyping’ business. Its members have to sit down at the end of the week, in a quiet room, meditating and thinking about what truly matters. What deserves a list post? What should we truly concern ourselves with as conservatives? And what seemed to be important a few days ago is actually irrelevant? Only after asking themselves these questions can this team’s members get behind a computer and start writing.

Chris Queen wrote an enlightening post about President Obama’s socialist credentials. In “Top 7 Facts From Obama’s Background That Prove He’s a Socialist” Queen proves that the man who presented himself as a centrist during the 2008 presidential campaign is, in fact, a die-hard socialist. This list post is based on Howard Kurtz’s book Radical-in-Chief: an absolute must read for anyone trying to figure out who the man behind the moderate mask truly is.

Sick and tired of leftists’ blaming conservatives for the horrific massacre in Tucson, Arizona, The Concession Stand blogger Calvin Freiburger takes a look at violence perpetrated by leftists. Do James von Brunn, Bradley Neal Crowder and Amy Bishop ring a bell? Read “The Top 7 Violent Left-Wingers You’re Not Supposed to Remember” and refer to this post whenever a progressive pretends that all, or at least most, political acts of violence are carried out by conservatives.

Remember that Democrats accused Bush of being a stupid ignoramous who didn’t know how to treat other world leaders? Well, how about the Obamas? They have become experts at of insulting America’s democratic allies, while bowing to dictators and emperors. Here are the “Top 10 Breaches of Protocol By the Obamas,” collected for your reading pleasure by NewsReal Blog‘s rising star Megan Fox.

There’s a war going on in America. It’s a war that’s being fought in the classroom, on television, in movies and in Congress. You might think I’m referring to the War on Terror. Well, that would be the case in a sane world. As it is, I’m actually talking about the Left’s war on parents. It’s a ferocious war in which progressives take no prisoners. All your kids are belong to us. Click here to read the “Top 7 Ways the Left is Gunning for Parents,” by the always witty Diane Schrader.

Although most posts on blogs are ‘anti’ this or that, today we bring you an article that’s actually in praise of something: in the “Top Six Reasons Why I Love Capitalism” Matthew Vadum explains why America is blessed to be a capitalist country. It’s time for conservatives to stop playing defense on the economy. Capitalism is a blessing, without it millions more Americans would be living in poverty today, and the U.S. itself would not have stand a chance of becoming the world’s only superpower.

Lastly, talk radio expert Kathy Shaidle has had it with leftists’ attacks on conservative Talk Radio. Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Mark Levin and many, many others are here to stay. They’re doing conservatism and the country at large a tremendous service by sharing their thoughts and insights on a (nearly) daily basis. Read the “Top 5 Craziest Leftwing Attacks on Conservative Talk Radio Hosts” if you want to laugh at the Left’s over-the-top attacks on conservatism’s most vocal advocates.

These are the six list posts we published today, right here at NewsReal Blog. Every single one of them is a bullet flying straight at progressivism’s heart. Read them, bookmark them, and refer to them whenever a leftist attacks conservatism or conservatives. Trust me,  you’ll be happy you did.
