From Judson Phillips, Tea Party Nation:
Do you wonder why conservatives are losing the culture wars as well as the political wars?
Conservatives are losing wars on both fronts. Because conservatives lose the culture war, political wars are lost as a matter of course. The late Andrew Breitbart explained why this happened and what conservatives needed to do.
What was Breitbart’s advice and how is the left using it and the right isn’t?
Andrew Breitbart warned that politics flows downstream from popular culture. Liberals understand popular culture and engage it.
From Roll Call:
Rep. John Lewis not only dressed as a revolutionary leader during his second appearance at Comic-Con International, he behaved like one — seizing the opportunity to shape young minds by taking the future firmly in his hands.
The Georgia Democrat returned to the pop culture smorgasbord on July 11 to promote the second installment of his illustrated biography, “March.” Lewis co-wrote the ongoing series of graphic novels, which chronicle the life-threatening situations he often found himself in throughout the civil rights era, with right-hand man Andrew Aydin.
The duo has been working for several years now with artist Nate Powell on a trilogy of books detailing Lewis’ ongoing crusade to vanquish inequality….
Well said, Judson.
Where people of principle and perspective don’t stand for and explain righteousness — and call wrongdoing, including collectivism, the destructive harm that it is, the world around us suffers, our own children suffer, and even we suffer from an underactive and corrupted conscience.
When we don’t take our messages to the people, especially to the young, that corruption is inevitably at work in us.
