Liberals count on conservatives giving up, talking too much, and not acting on threats; as a result, liberals steamroll ahead with their policies.
The internet has made it possible to do an end run around the establishment GOP and media sources that have had a stranglehold on information for decades. The Establishment GOP has not taken advantage of today’s versatile technology. They are stuck in the 1970s.
Guess what happened with Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) got caught in lies about the Hobby Lobby decision?
They didn’t get away with it. For example:
“1. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.): ‘Really, we should be afraid of this court. The five guys who start determining what contraceptions are legal. Let’s not even go there.’
“The majority opinion written by Justice Samuel Alito said, ‘under our cases, women (and men) have a constitutional right to obtain contraceptives,’ and cited the 1965 ruling in Griswold v. Connecticut that struck down state laws banning contraceptives.
“Pelosi spokesman Drew Hammill told the Post his boss ‘misspoke.’
“‘Obviously the impact of the court’s decision is not to make these four contraceptive methods illegal – i.e. no longer allowed to be sold.’ he said. ‘But the overriding point here is that the decision does in fact limit access, which is the key point Pelosi made.’
“PolitiFact gave Pelosi a ‘false’ rating, for which the Post said, ‘we certainly agree, though we generally do not award Pinocchios when politicians fess up to a mistake.’”
This is called pushback. As soon as a politician lies – Democrat or Republican – broadcast the lie on every website known in the conservative movement. Let your Facebook friends know. Pass it on. Share it. Push . . . push . . . push. Don’t give them a chance to breathe.
