Imagine an America where far-right, white militia groups could attack their political enemies with impunity. Where local prosecutors whose campaigns were funded by Vladimir Putin would simply dismiss the charges when they committed serious crimes, but savagely prosecute members of the public who tried to defend themselves against right-wing thugs.
Imagine further that after winning a murky election where his own election workers were credibly accused of massive voter fraud, President Trump’s administration kept dozens of progressive election protestors in solitary confinement . This more than a year after a riot where they were attacked by police . And the feds wouldn’t turn over key evidence, kept pushing trial dates back into the indefinite future, and denied those liberal protestors proper food and medical care. Meanwhile, a savagely partisan GOP Congress tried to delegitimize and prosecute ordinary political activity by Democrats. Our Country Is Fascist Now
If you called such tactics “fascist,” you wouldn’t be overstating things. Few of us on the right would have the stomach for such an abuse of power. You see, we really do believe in liberal democracy, the rule of law, and the dignity of the person as the image and likeness of God. And in the short-run, those things about us seem to be weaknesses. They stop us from even trying to aggressively wield power when and where we have it.
Even worse, we can mistake these cherished, peculiar beliefs of ours for a civic creed that all our fellow citizens likewise believe. We project our own good intentions and moral integrity onto our enemies. We imagine that they sincerely share these basic values with us, and they only disagree about their proper application.
My friends, none of this is true. And it’s time for us to stop pretending otherwise. Yes, it helps us sleep at […]
One Sick Day Proves We Need More Voices in Truthful Media
On October 19, I was sick. It crossed my mind that I had finally gotten the ‘rona, but my wife’s cream of chicken soup and a few extra hours of sleep into mid-afternoon had be back up and running after a sleepless night before.
When I finally stumbled over to my computer in the evening, I was met with a deluge of concern from readers. They asked what had happened as only one article had been posted that day. Generally, we post between 10-20 daily between all of the sites, not included curated and aggregated content. Seeing that we’d only posted my super-early morning article before taking the rest of the day off had readers assuming the worst.
We have a wonderful and talented group of writers who volunteer their time for the sites and their readers. Sharing their amazing perspectives has always been a blessing to us because we cannot afford to hire anyone at this time. But having great writers is meaningless if we don’t have great editors, or at least one additional. My wife helps me read and edit stories from time to time, but I’m a one-man show when it comes to getting the stories posted.
Whenever I highlight our desperate need for donations, I note that we do not receive money from Google ads even though most in conservative media are beholden. I often ambiguously note that the money donated will help us grow. Today, I’m highlighting a specific need. We must get an editor to help take some of the load and to expand on our mission of spreading the truth to the world. One sick day proved that.
The great news is that there is no shortage of people who CAN help. I am emailed variations of resumes every week by people who are much smarter than I am. As much as I’d love to hire some of them, we simply cannot. That takes money and as blessed as we’ve been to receive donations and collect ad money (though not from Google or Facebook), we have still fallen short.
Those who have the means, PLEASE consider donating. We have the standard Giving Fuel option and people can donate through PayPal. We are also diving into what we believe is extremely disruptive technology at LetsGo.finance, the world’s first major donation portal for crypto. I’ll be talking a lot more about them in the near future. Those who prefer Bitcoin can send to my address here: 3A1ELVhGgrwrypwTJhPwnaTVGmuqyQrMB8
We can get the voices out there and we’re willing to shine a spotlight on new talent. We just need the resources to make it happen. If you can help, we would be extremely grateful.
Thank you and God bless!
