The accosting demands of liberal America are really starting to get to me. They are unmatched in fury, money, and their grip on the media and, as a result, groups like moveon.org are financing and actively pursuing the downfall of America. Really.
I am no demagogue; these are simply the truths of our circumstances. Take a look at Target, America’s second largest retailer behind Walmart. Target recently donated $150,000 to a business group named MN Forward, a group which supports Tom Emmer, a conservative Minnesotan looking to win this fall and succeed Tim Pawlenty as Minnesota’s chief executive. Emmer is a Republican, and made the decision to run for office because he believes Minnesota can do better. Emmer, like many conservatives, is opposed to gay marriage. Unfortunately, due to his convictions, Emmer has been under fire. Also a target? Target, for its donation to MN Forward.
With Target’s $150,000 donation to MN Forward, the liberal elite of America–a.k.a the bully unions and the financiers of the American media–have launched an attack on Target. Moveon.org has initiated a series of protests against Target and gay rights groups across our nation are demanding Target give a matching donation to the gay advocacy group of their choice. Who would have thought that one day in our republic the demands of an elite few would dominate the beliefs of our nation? This nonsense has shook me to my core, redrawn my fervor for justice in our country, and renewed my passion to see the right kind of Republicans elected across America this November.
If I wasn’t going away this weekend I would be out at my local Target countering liberal America’s attack on our freedoms. The Supreme Court case Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission has cleared the way for corporate giving, and whether you agree with this case or not it is in fact a declared right in our country, one which I implore liberal America to respect. A corporation is, by law, an artificial jural person — therefore, why can’t a corporation choose to donate to the cause of their choice? Why must we pander to the cause of a progressive militia like moveon.org?
Am I angry? Sure. Am I passionate about this country I love? Absolutely. I stand with my convictions to see that America triumph and move forward, because the voice of We the People is under attack in our nation, an attack which stems from more than the leaders in Washington, an attack which has been launched by the unions of America, the liberal elite that fund our broken laws and the chosen few who believe their rights trump the rest of those in America.
Unfortunately, Target just recently apologized for its decision to donate to MN Forward. Admittedly, I am disappointed. Target caved in to the pressure, and it’s a testament to the power of the American left, but even considering that, I dare say that the resolve of the American people is far greater than that of an angry mob. This weekend, I ask that you shop at your local Target and perhaps even visit MN Forward’s Web site and make a donation to a cause worth fighting for. Today, liberal America attacks corporate choice, tomorrow they attack your neighbor’s freedom of speech and, next, it will be yours. We must stand up against tyranny because, as Walt Whitman once said, “There is no week nor day nor hour when tyranny may not enter upon this country, if the people lose their roughness and spirit of defiance.”
