From the ashes a fire shall be woken
a light from the shadows shall spring;
renenwed shall be blade that was broken,
the crownless again shall be king.
Seems Tony Blankley agrees with me about a coming conservative renaissance.Â In his latest essay, he writes:
I think that Miss Noonan may have unconsciously touched on what is really going on here when she accuses Mrs. Palin – who is attracting crowds as big if not bigger than any Reagan ever drew – of being a “follower â€¦ not a leader.” Miss Noonan’s unconscious fear may be that it will be precisely Mrs. Palin (and others like her) who will be among the leaders of the about to be re-born conservative movement. I suspect that the conservative movement we start re-building on the ashes of November 4th (even if Mr. McCain wins) will have little use for over-written, over-delicate commentary.
The new movement will be plain spoken and social networked up from the internetted streets, suburbs and small towns of America. It certainly will not listen very attentively to those conservatives who idolatrize Mr. Obama and collaborate in heralding his arrival. They may call their commentary “honesty.” I would call it – at the minimum – blindness.
Reading the blogs, I have a sense of intellectual ferment on the right. It’s even reached the halls of Congress, conservatives looking back to the ideas and inspiration of Ronald Reagan, but forward to the problems of today.
Read the whole thing. And I mean that.
There is something happening on the right. It may not lead to victory in November, but like the goddess Athena, we focus on the long-term. An electoral setback is just that, a setback. Our ideas are on the march and won’t be diminished by the temporary triumph of our ideological adversaries.
And we at GayPatriot intend to lead the gay vanguard in this renewed push for American ideals, for freedom and personal responsibility, for love of country, a strong national defense and above all, an appreciation for the greatness of this nation and its exceptional role on the world stage.
