Palin Should 'Preach to the Choir'


at THE AMERICAN THINKER


"In Sarah Palin's interview with Stephen Bannon, the documentarian who chronicled her life in The Undefeated, she speaks forthrightly about her future plans now that she's no longer tethered to a progressively moderate Fox News. But the meaning behind her words isn't so clear.
Short term: I encourage others to step out in faith, jump out of the comfort zone, and broaden our reach as believers in American exceptionalism. That means broadening our audience. I'm taking my own advice here as I free up opportunities to share more broadly the message of the beauty of freedom and the imperative of defending our republic and restoring this most exceptional nation. We can't just preach to the choir; the message of liberty and true hope must be understood by a larger audience.
What does "broadening our audience" mean? If it means taking a message of conservatism, limited government, adherence to the Constitution and a free market, to the streets and preaching to anyone who will listen, then I'm all for it.
On the other hand, if Palin means she should "share" her message with moderate Democrats or independents, she should remember that train left the station when establishment Republicans lost to Obama in November. Throughout the 2012 campaign season, the Republican theme was bipartisanship and compromise. Where did that get us?
We do not live in normal times. We have a diehard socialist president who constantly insinuates his personal progressive opinions into the American narrative. If moderate Republicans, nay progressive Republicans, continue to rule over conservatives, we won't stand a chance against those that wish to bring our Republic to its knees.
And how has it helped that conservative media personalities accept jobs on "lamestream" media outlets? Do they really think they are going to change CNN's or MSNBC's progressive editorial policies by being a voice from the right? Not a chance. Mixing with the left is futile, and sometimes dangerous.
Just think of the late Andrew Breitbart. He went out on a limb and endured vitriolic hatred when he faced the public, but he didn't compromise his beliefs. "Bring it on, you freaks" was one of his famous lines and it symbolizes his single-minded mission to call out the left every time they made a move. His conversion from a liberal Hollywood type to a conservative dragon was complete. He was all about the cause. He threw out his liberal lexicon and replaced it with straight talk, shooting from the hip.
Here's a suggestion for Sarah Palin. Take your 3.4 million Facebook followers and name them as your base. Lead them. And preach like you've never preached before."
