6 Rules To Fight The Left, Plus Corollary: Do Not Irritate Susannah Fleetwood

You go to blogger gatherings, you meet lots of wonderful conservative blogging ladies. Because they’re conservative, they tend to be easy on the eye, and have a husband in tow, just in case the riff-raff’s restless. No, I was actually thinking of The Lonely Conservative, whom we also do not link enough. Wouldn’t want Mr. Fleetwood to break out the Mac-10.

Susannah Fleetwood, whom I’d not read previously, has a NewsReal post that starts with the Left’s shabby treatment of Christine O’Donnell. Things get interesting (emphasis mine):

. . .I think that one thing is painfully obvious (besides the fact that the Left is composed of a lot of pervs who would rather talk about witchcraft and masturbation than the economy and jobs)–we are playing the game by their rules, not our own. And guess what? This game is rigged against us. Simply put, the rules of this game are to call any woman who challenges Obama and his agenda a “witch”, or say perverted things about her and her family. And, if we complain about these Chicago tactics and don’t take ‘the high road”, then we are “Raaaaacists!!” (that’s five A’s). Well, in the spirit of Bill Maher, I’ve decided that it’s time for us conservatives to make some “New Rules”.

She then lays out six rules with examples that, combined, show just how propaganda driven and intellectually dishonest so much Lefty criticism is. Likely not news to our regular readers, but the packaging here adds substantially to the point.
Of course, I always recommend the milder approach: you can always escalate, but walking it back after allowing the passion to sweep one away is ever a challenge. Caution.
Is Susannah a slightly refined Dan Riehl? Prior to reading this post, I would not have thought such, but now I’m not so sure.

    “pervs who would rather talk about witchcraft and masturbation”
    LOL! And that perv would be the person that brought it up in the first place! In fact O’Donnel made quite a little TV career for herself talking about masturbation and witchcraft!
    How stupid can this Fleetwood idiot be?

    “the rules of this game are to call any woman who challenges Obama and his agenda a “witch”.

    Nobody called her a witch, she admitted to dabbling in “witchcraft” you moron!
    Oh man, you guys have a long way to go before you refine your whining to Faux News standards…
    Hahaha, how stooooopid!

    The difference is that while the legacy media still reports and supports all the leftist agitprop, fewer and fewer voters, including the mushy middle of “swing voters” and especially the impressionable youth vote, pay any attention to them anymore, and accord them barely more credible than conservative activists do – which is to say, none.

    The old diversionary tactics are going the way of the peremptory cry of “Racism!” to deflect criticism or scrutiny, that poop just doesn’t stick like it used to. Too bad their last new trick, “National Health Care,” is over half a century old and when they finally dragged it over the finish line against overwhelming public objection, it sealed their fate for this fall.

    The rest is just old stuff. They never learned that crap dries out over time and fails to stick. Losers.


    Another sign of the left’s rapid deterioration, both in practical effect and influence and mental stability, is the declining quality of their internet trolls – not just there, but on many conservative sites. They have become lame, flaccid, toothless, capable only of moronic raving, but even that without real fervor.

    It’s sad how pathetic they have become, but it couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of America-hating losers.

    Estrogen,you couldn’t have written a more self-serving, self-gratifying piece of nonsense if you were Christine O’Donnel herself. You should try keeping your hands where we can all see.
    Oh, and America-Haters? That’s so Sarah Palin…
    Hey, did you hear that she has the RNC paying her legal bills in exchange for helping the GOP?
    Yeah, there goes all that anti-establishment jazz.
    Conservatives are all a bunch of phonies.
