One of the most instructive and heartening things I’ve read in a long while is this post (hat tip: Sam) by Daniel Greenfield at his blog Sultan Knish: Be the best saboteur you can be. I’m sure most of you reading RRW lately are getting pretty demoralized as the hard Left seems to be winning the war to control America politically and culturally while the establishment Republicans simply cower.
Greenfield tells us that we are the guerrilla warriors now and they (the Left and the eunuch Republicans) are the power we must fight using skill and cunning.
Greenfield gives us the prescription and it is similar to what I have been telling those audiences I speak to (but Greenfield says it more clearly and fleshes it out!). There is no silver bullet, there is not one leader who will rally us all, there is no national group or movement that will do it for us, it’s up to you individually and in small guerrilla bands! Choose small battles, create chaos and work to win where you live!
Here is some of what he says, but please read it all. Emphasis below is mine:
The only way conservatives can get anything done now is by threatening business as usual.
Washington D.C. is never going to be the solution, but to the extent that its business as usual is threatened, sabotaged and held hostage, it will have trouble putting its boot on ordinary people. Until the Republican establishment changes its ways, populist saboteurs are the best conservative weapon.
2. Fight the small stuff
You don’t have to think in terms of a national movement. You don’t even have to think in terms of an organization. Those are things that we need, but you can fight the left in small ways at home.
I’m not talking about Sign X or donate to Y.
Just obstruct any liberal initiative, policy or program in your community. It doesn’t matter what. It doesn’t matter if it’s innocuous. It doesn’t matter if you agree with it.
Undermine it on principle. If you can, vote it down. Encourage others to vote it down. If you can’t, look for ways to tie it in red tape by attaching other agendas to it.
The left wins its biggest victories at the planning stage. Its activists come early and stay late. They propose their plans, rig meetings, use kids and the elderly as human shields, and get their way. They are not used to any real opposition. Particularly the kind that doesn’t bluster, but finds ways to tie their proposals in knots, to make them expensive and drag them out as long as possible.
Oppose them when you can. Concern troll them when you can’t.
If you don’t have that kind of position, think of the origins of the term ‘sabotage’. Workers threw their shoes into machines and stopped the machine. Don’t do anything illegal. Don’t do anything that will get you fired.
But if you have the opportunity to make a liberal program work badly, if you have a legal way to put more stress on it, to tie up the energy and time of the people running it, to make it worse… do it.
We’re the underdogs. We’re the political guerrillas. This is not our system. It’s their system.
Our job is to make it run as badly as possible.
Please find your little piece of the battle and work on it every day, a little at a time. It is going to be a long war!
And, just a reminder for those of you who want to join forces and throw shoes into the machine that brings hundreds of thousands of third world migrants to America every year, people who will not find work, people who have no intention of assimilating, but every intention of changing America, people who will need you to feed and care for them, people who will vote for more goodies for themselves and who will join the Democratic party in order to vote for more big government programs, please sign up at the Center for Security Policy and join our band of political guerrilla warriors especially so we can help facilitate your alliance with others where you live.
