I have no problem understanding the tactics employed by the unhinged Left in their unhinged effort to avoid the ash heap of history as increasing numbers of ordinary people awaken to the havoc these people have wreaked on our nation over the past eighty years. To the average Leftist, for whom the Cause – whatever that cause may be – transcends all other things, the ends will always justify the means and other people become nothing more than the eggs necessary for the perfect omelet…and everyone knows you can’t make an omelet without breaking some eggs.
Anyone not blinkered by sympathy to the cause of contemporary American liberalism who has devoted more than a few minutes’ time observing it, cannot avoid being astounded by the extremes to which the Left resorts in order to advance its agenda: there is no stratagem too brutal, no lie too outrageous, no slander or libel too vicious or hurtful that it cannot be effectively employed – especially if people of good will do nothing to oppose the outrage but instead gape and gawk like bystanders at a traffic accident or, worse, accept what they see and hear as the truth.
Thankfully, the conservative right is largely free of this pathogen. Insofar as they hold dear any number of self-evident truths that transcend this vulgar, mundane world and aspire to a more exacting and divine standard, conservatives pursue the truth – even when engaging liberals in political battle – because there exists no other weapon more powerful. In some instances this instinctive respect for eternal verities can have a hobbling effect when engaging an enemy for whom truth is nothing more than expedience and integrity but one of many costumes donned in the Kabuki theatre of politics. Nevertheless, one adapts to these things over time and evolves strategies to outwit and overcome them.
But what is to be done when a textbook Liberal assault – complete with innuendo, insinuation, fallacious reasoning, half truths, outright lies, slander and libel – comes not from the Left but rather, from the Right? What would history have been like if the planes that attacked Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941 were not Japanese but American? It’s a jarring image and there are few who can abide it for any length of time. Yet this is precisely what is taking place in New Jersey as an erstwhile conservative advocacy blog has taken upon itself with drooling zeal a mission one would ordinarily expect to see a Leftist organization embracing: the destruction of a Tea Party organization that, since its founding, has dedicated itself to the principles embraced by Ronald Reagan – the man whose mask their attackers wear.
Yesterday a pair of articles was published on the web pages of Conservative New Jersey so outrageous, so over the top, that I insist you read them for yourselves. The author is Rob Eichmann. Please make a note of his name.
Unlike the bloggers at Conservative New Jersey who are so terrified of me and of this site that they refuse to link to it or to anything I have published, I’m more than happy to link to them. I want you to go there and partake of the sewage that passes for conservative thought among these pathetic excuses for conservative activists. I implore you to read the dreck that passes for their informed opinion and, assuming you haven’t already vomited, read it again.
In particular, I want you read the following posts:
Ordinarily, I take the time to answer screeds like these almost on a line-by-line basis. This time, I’ll let the victim of this libel – and yes, it is libel – answer for herself. In an e-mail to me, Barbara Gonzalez had this to say:
I did not host a fundraiser for ANYONE except for the BTPG once in March. In the present case, I was merely an invited guest at the home of the Measleys.
Neither I nor the BTPG ever made a public statement of support for or endorsed RoseAnn Salinitri.
Neither I nor the BTPG ever made a public statement of support for or endorsed Mr. Quick. I don’t even know what he is running for and only vaguely recall the name.
Neither I nor the BTPG have EVER promoted or supported the Socialist Party USA. However, I should point out that CNJ has given them a substantial amount of promotion (including a link to his website), so much so that the 18 yr.old has thanked THEM for promoting his platform.
Neither I nor the BTPG have been accused by anyone but the bloggers at CNJ for promoting Socialist and Marxists.
Neither I nor the BTPG have gone “door to door” to ask neighbors about Steve Lonegan. We haven’t the time to delve in such idiocy.
Neither I nor the BTPG have been commenting on this site because, quite frankly, we realize you can’t argue with idiots.
I couldn’t agree more. It’s worth noting that Michael Doherty and Steve Lonegan both enjoy considerable support from Conservative New Jersey. Indeed, Rob Eichmann happily volunteers his time on behalf of Mr. Doherty. And yet, to date, neither of these so-called conservative leaders has had anything critical to say in public about the escalating outrage being perpetrated on the part of their supporters. Do they not realize that all this time Democrat operatives have been assiduously recording every slander and libel against the Bayshore Tea Party? Do they not comprehend the incalculable damage this is doing to Movement Conservatism in New Jersey? Have they nothing – apart from criticism of me – to say about all this?
Well, I have something to say: it’s time for Messrs. Lonegan and Doherty to grow a pair and put a stop to this madness. I understand that while the zoo crew at CNJ has no sense of decency or shame, I have no choice but to ask both Mr. Lonegan and Mr. Doherty:
Do either of you have any sense of decency or shame? Will either of you step forward and do the right thing? Or will the conservative movement in New Jersey die in a cannibalistic feeding frenzy?
I’m not the cause of this plague. I’m merely the scalpel that lanced a festering boil. Now the pus is everywhere and it covers everything. It’s time for the conservative leadership in New Jersey to step forward with gauze and alcohol and clean up the mess. They can start by directing their attention to Conservative New Jersey – the pathogen that triggered this disgusting eruption.
