Seeing Allen West confront that CAIR guy with facts the other night reinforced for me how amazingly powerful the simple truth is. The Left is so rooted in a false ideology, and so accustomed to deceiving people in order to get their way, that they instinctively recoil from truth — including from plain, unadorned facts. It’s like a crucifix to a vampire. Like water on the Wicked Witch!
One of the reasons Allen West wows people is that, sad to say, it’s become so rare for politicians to stand on — and stand up for — the facts, that when Allen West does so, he really stands out from the crowd. (Of course, to stand on the facts, you have to know the facts, and too few people have taken the trouble to learn the facts about Islam. Methinks most of ’em really don’t want to know, since, once you know, you have a responsibility to do something. And that’s where the courage part comes in — which Allen West also has in abundance.)
Seeing West’s refusal to be cowed by CAIR reminded me of someone else with the kind of chutzpah we conservatives need: Andrew Breitbart. After watching his speech in Madison, WI, last week, calling out the unions’ mischief, and his awesome, hilarious speech at CPAC, describing how much fun — yes, FUN — he has, going to leftists’ protests and deconstructing them on the spot, I was inspired to watch this video of Andrew in action, intimidating the intimidators by asking them to answer honest questions. (They couldn’t.)
This is how it’s done, folks. Take it from Andrew Breitbart, Scourge Of Leftists! Watch ’em wither before his onslaught! Fighting fruitcakes can be fun! (Also, as Breitbart shows here, and as Allen West showed the other night, defeating them is easier than we thought. Just the facts, folks, just the facts.)

Listen to Senator Rubio humbly explain his loss: “I’m disappointed with tonight. I want you to understand, I want you to understand something. Our disappointment tonight is not on you, it’s on me.

Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES It sure seems that way. Christie is reportedly heading home to New Jersey to re-evaluate his candidacy. He was very clearly a dog backed into a corner in the New Hampshire debate, and he attacked who he saw as the biggest threat on the way to being the “Establishment” candidate – Marco Rubio. However, the strategy did not work, | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES Sadly, it appears that New Hampshire may have muddied the GOP field, rather than clarifying it. Even though Kasich and Jeb do not have obvious paths forward to the nomination, they are going to convince themselves that they do, at least through Super Tuesday – and they will probably find donors who will indulge that belief. Somewhere, Donald Trump | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES The GOP Establishment is bound to be looking at New Hampshire, a state where they perform well, seeing Donald Trump coming away with a major and distant first place, and weeping to themselves that their party has gone so terribly awry. There are a couple of things I’d like to say to them, but in the interest of keeping | Read More »
