Here, you are urged and encouraged to run your mouths about something important.

When the Daily Caller published several stories back to back that exposed a mainstream media conspiracy of collusion and collaboration about how to best push the leftwing agenda, it was like a mack truck of information hitting the alternative media. As the days have passed, however, the most egregious revelations to come out of it are rising to the top, causing many people to take a second look, and re-think some things.

Among them, and perhaps the most relevant to an issue that is at the forefront in America today is what Spencer Ackerman of the Washington Independent wrote on the Journolist Listserv that a good way to bury the Jeremiah Wright story in the spring of 2008 was to slander conservatives as racist.

Here is what Ackerman said, via Pajamas Media:
It’s not necessary to jump to Wright-qua-Wright’s defense. What is necessary is to raise the cost on the right of going after the left. In other words, find a rightwinger’s [sic] and smash it through a plate-glass window. Take a snapshot of the bleeding mess and send it out in a Christmas card to let the right know that it needs to live in a state of constant fear. Obviously I mean this rhetorically.

If the right forces us all to either defend Wright or tear him down, no matter what we choose, we lose the game they’ve put upon us. Instead, take one of them — Fred Barnes, Karl Rove, who cares — and call them racists. Ask: why do they have such a deep-seated problem with a black politician who unites the country? What lurks behind those problems? This makes *them* sputter with rage, which in turn leads to overreaction and self-destruction.
Take note of that very last sentence because it virtually mirrors one of the Rules for Radicals authored by Barack Obama's ideological mentor, Saul Alinsky.

Rule #5 to be exact:
Rule 5: Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. It’s hard to counterattack ridicule, and it infuriates the opposition, which then reacts to your advantage.
Alinsky was a man who advocated slander and libel, which are nothing more than false attributions in order to destroy character. He did this not because it was ethical. On the contrary, in the world of Community Organizing, the ends justify the means.

Here is Andrew Breitbart talking about the leftwing media scandal exposed by Daily Caller.
