I had reasoned this out in my mind, there was one of two things I had a right to, liberty or death; if I could not have one, I would have the other. ~~Harriet Tubman
This day, I come to the defense of my liberal brethren.
Yes, I want to defend pink-organ wearing brood that is foaming at the mouth for merely mentioning the name of Donald John Trump, the 45th President of the United States of America. Yes, the same group that believes in free speech as long as you agree or are willing to watch your city or university burn to the Naked Earth. Yes, the ones that do the sign of the cross in this fashion: "In the Name of FDR, and of Elizabeth Warren and of Bernie Sanders, Amen!" Today, I defend them against the rhetoric of the Urban Right.
I defend them because they have done to the conservative movement what we should have done to their leftist movement a long time ago. The Left have conquered the Fourth Estate, public press, and we play continually on their plantation or media colony. We bemoan Fox News eliminating most of the conservative analysts on their Network yet, become as satisfied as a vegetarian eating a one-ounce salad in saying that at least they have Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity. The Right that champion capitalism and liberation of the oppressed betwixt us by placing the shackles back on to report the news and give commentary. Or, the Right satisfies itself by turning to MSNBC, CNN or one of the original alphabet soups of the Fourth Estate Left and throw shoes at the TV or curse the night fantastic because of the obvious bias, prejudice, and contempt for truth. Well, maybe there is a chance that I will get a less densely populated bias on my local TV or radio station. Good luck with that! In Urban centers, the Left have seized every local tv station and newspaper leaving a few dangling fruit that we may hear the voices of Rush Limbaugh, Laura Ingram and Michael Savage. All Day. Every Day. There are no other voices in the conservative movement the Left will have you believe. Why? It is because they own the plantations and will not allow any competition. Yes, the conservative movement has won the battles for a couple of terrestrial AM and FM stations in Urban America but, lost the media war.
What shall we do? Throw a shoe at the radio and curse the dawn to come.
"Facebook is censoring conservative media!"
"Twitter deletes my tweets because they are offensive."
"We need Bill O'Reilly to Build Us A Conservative News Network!"
"We better use the social media that we have rather than trying to create one."
This will not be the last page turned to consider the actions of the social media plantation owners that have gratified themselves with advertising dollars and captured audiences while the Fourth Estate Right bemoan the tragedies of slavery. "O Lawdy, what shall we do?" In "Google redefines 'fascism’ to smear conservatives and protect liberal rioters", Dan "The Man" Butcher writes, "Has Google, the world’s most popular search engine, changed the definition of the word “fascism” to protect liberal mobs using violence to silence those who disagree with them politically? The evidence suggests they have." Yes, they have the freedom, liberty, and power to do so. What do we have?
“I make like $10,000 a month from AdSense,” Paul Horner, a prolific, Facebook-focused fake-news writer told us this week. And among a growing group of Macedonian teenagers who see fake-news sites as a way to make easy money from American gullibility, the most successful can make about $5,000 a month, BuzzFeed reported."
So Let me get this straight. If I fake a news story on Facebook, I get paid. If I tell the truth, nothing! Before I move forward, let me define what a slave is: a person held in servitude as the chattel of another; one that is completely subservient to a dominating influence. You spend hours on Facebook, Youtube, and Twitter giving free content because they are the only game in town and they profit and you don't. You freely spend three hours discussing and debating with people--imaginary and otherwise--the pros and cons foreign policy, immigration threats, education deficiencies on various social media sites and then, you want to get paid to host a show that you will eventually distribute for free on social media.
"Wait a minute Ken, I want to be popular. The more popular I am the more likely I am to get paid by those that own and support the Fourth Estate."
Yet, I have true pioneers of Urban Conservative Media that can't buy a cup of coffee at a convenience store with the monies that they have earned from their truth detection and telling.
"Well, Ken, I don't watch them or support them. I gotcha there, Ken. I don't pay their salaries!"
Yes, you do.
When you subscribe to cable television, portions of those monies pay the salaries of the gatekeepers of lie, prejudice, and bias. Even if you don't watch, because you paid your cable bill, they get a portion. Kind of like it feels good amongst conservatives to say I don't support Planned Parenthood and abortion and yet, our tax dollars end up in the pockets of the malcontented Left that practice genocide in Urban America. Kind of like it feels good to tell people that you are protesting the Public Broadcasting System by not watching it. Yet, our tax dollars pay for Big Bird's and Elmo's getaways to Cancun and Hong Kong annually. Kind of like it feels good to tell people that people got to pay you to sing and yet, you blow pipes on the back of the bus to get attention.
"Yeah, Ken, I know but, we do not have a forum to discuss issues with conservatives or broadcast without risk of Master coming by and taking our straw thus, making us responsible for finding our own resources to build their pyramids."
TeaPartyCommunity.com Founder and CEO Tim Selaty Sr. would beg to differ. However, we'll take our chances. It's the logic that says I will stay in poverty until someone takes me out of it. Booker T. Washington and Nannie Helen Burroughs would be appalled at such excuses of reason. We preach "Boot-strap" Economics to the impoverished and disenfranchised yet, live out a comfortable suburban lifestyle on the Fourth Estate plantation. We fear to leave the Master's vineyards because he has convinced us that we shall not do well on our own. I was Facebook born. I was Facebook bred. And when I die, I'll be Facebook dead. When will we establish our own Underground Railroad from the Fourth Estate Plantation to the Pastures of an Independent and Free Fourth Estate?
"I freed a thousand slaves. I could have freed a thousand more if only they knew they were slaves." ~~A Quote Attributed to Harriet Tubman
Winston Churchill, former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, said, "In war, resolution; in defeat, defiance; in victory, magnanimity.” Yet, there is literally a true lack of defiance on the Right. Dylan Thomas wrote, "Do not go gentle into that good night". Yet, when I listen to the Fourth Estate Right, it appears many have not only gone gently into the night but, have complained about the dawn to come. Why must the fruits of profitable truth be forbidden to us, while those on the Left force us to pick the trees bears for their constituency? The Left has created a Fourth Estate Plantation and has successfully prostituted the urban conservative media. We must put an end to this and do it with the force of the "father of all bombs"--Massive Ordnance Air Blast (MOAB).
How shall we do this?
I believe that the ingredients for a profitable conservative forum and broadcasting network already exist. The grassroots have constructed the system that best refutes even the staunchest, Leftist Republican in Washington, DC. For this reason and for this season, I created The Exceptional Conservative Network®. In seeking an opportunity to reach the least, the last, and the lost among us, I am partnering with Christopher Arps, MOUToday.tv President, and John Scott, EnetLive.tv President, to build a subscriber based conservative news, commentary and sports network. EnetLive.tv is centered in Washington, Mo, about 50 miles west of St. Louis, MO and is seeking to build the bridge between the American conservative and our Nation's Truth detectors and tellers. Chris Arps, an often overlooked strong conservative commentator, has been on the front lines preaching Urban Conservatism to all those that would hear. Friend to many an outcast that spreads the Good News of Christianity, Conservatism, Capitalism, Constitutionalism and Individual Sovereignty, he and I understand that The Fourth Estate, in pursuit of the soul of America, have censored and silenced so many on the Right that restoration and revitalization of our very lives have been stymied. We have watched our friend, Stacey Washington, suffer at the hands of the Leftists, unwarrantedly suspended for possibly working with--get this--the NRA! Yes, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch would not dare someone on their staff embracing the Second Amendment while cherishing the First. This happens whether you are Perry Drake or Stacey Dash or Miss USA. If you bleed patriotism then, you shall be treated as an enemy combatant, not a friend, by the Left.
Yet, where can such great and noble messengers find room to deliver their messages?
You say terrestrial AM Radio is the place to be. Really?! If you have money then, you may find a spot on late Saturday or Sunday night. Otherwise, Rush, Shaun, Michael, and Laura have an utter monopoly. You say terrestrial FM. Really?! Unless I am the King of Pop, it is very doubtful that you will hear the Good News of Christianity, Conservatism, Capitalism, Constitutionalism and Individual Sovereignty on one or two stations. So how shall we liberate Urban America? We must go where they least expect and where we have our strength as a guerilla army--Internet Television. Wait a minute, you subscribe to Glenn Beck and he is only conservative on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Why would it be difficult to subscribe for $9.99 per month to listen to Willie Lawson, Shannon and Michael Wright, and so many great conservatives that really speak to the conditions of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness? Our talented artists and commentators should never suffer poverty at the hands of the Fourth Estate Leftists. Our TECN® Family has Mutually Pledged Our Lives, Our Fortunes, and Our Sacred Honor to Save Urban America. Yet, many of the hosts struggle to make car payments, delay seeing physicians, or sacrifice meals so that they can produce high-quality programming and content. Why such sacrifices? They want to give to their children a Nation more prosperous and free than the one handed to them or created by their peers.
Kenneth McClenton, Chairman of The Exceptional Conservative Network®, is an Urban Conservative Whose Mission Is to Spread the Good News of Christianity, Conservatism, Capitalism and Constitutionalism throughout the World. Devoted to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness, He Believes that in Order to Save the United States, We Must Mutually Pledge Our Lives, Our Fortunes, and Our Sacred Honor to Save Urban America.
