RULES FOR RADICAL REPUBLICANS: Gonzo Street Artist Challenges Grammys Hypocrisy With Racy Posters.

Kurt Schlichter wrote last year, “[Shove] Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals Right Back in the Left’s Ugly Face.” Sabo, working in deepest blue Los Angeles is one of the very best at it.

indeed so but it’s not like I haven’t been saying this for quite a while. For example, I wrote back in 2012….

At what point do we stop going for the mythical center? At what point does the GOP leadership start actually BEING conservative? At what point do the rank and file GOP have a real say? It makes one really wonder just what the motivations of the GOP Establishment really are.

I suggest, as do rally attendance figures that Palin, Ryan and the other far more conservative candidates’ popularity far outstrips the GOP leadership’s chosen ones… and the treatment they receive at the hands of the GOP establishment outright proves that, as well. Conservative ideas and ideals will win the day every time they’re tried…. and the real issue is they’ve not been so tried in many decades because theGOP Establishment won’t allow it to happen. Of course the left knows it as well. They each know very well know someone with real conservative ideas and ideals will suck all the air out of the room.

Consider the question I asked last week; “Will Ryan get the Palin Treatment?” I said then:

Sarah Palin

As with Palin, what we have with Ryan is someone who understands what Reagan meant when he said government isn’t the solution, but the PROBLEM. As such, Ryan, clearly, has the ability to argue these points forcefully and convincingly. That can only be a plus, however, if the Romney campaign is willing to stand up and be counted as conservative.

The question seems to me open as to how seriously Romney and the remainder of the GOP leadership take that point, today.

As a measurement of that, watch with me to see if the GOP will make the same mistake with Ryan as they did with Palin; Muzzling him in an effort to appease the left, which is masquerading as “the center”. Again, speaking for myself in the suspicion that a Reagan-sized majority agrees with me, I will say my support for Romney/Ryan will be established if they do not muzzle Ryan, if they do not ignore the message the public support of Ryan shows.

Of course it was deeper than that then. We had a GOP establishment that was deathly afraid of confronting the left on their own ground. Using their own methods.

Alas we have progressed to the point now where it’s the only way we’re going to get the country back from both the GOP establishment and from the knee-jerk Democrats.

And what was the election of Donald Trump and the wild amount of support that Ted Cruz got over the establishment choice of Jeb Bush but a rejection of the establishment of both parties? A hunger for somebody that was willing to fight back?
