Most conservative political bloggers have dealt with the vitriol of the lefty bloggers. Anyone who has not stood at this front line of conservative defense has no idea what is out here, the aimless anger and coordinated (often paid) attacks on conservatives. Many righty blogs have had to moderate their comments sections because of the down-right nastiness that is written by the hate-filled hired hands of the radical Left.
Donald Douglas has certainly received his fair share of the vitriol over at his American Power blog, and his latest post documents the most current coordinated attacks from the Left because he dared to write about 9/11 and his trip to New York City to participate in the Ground Zero Mosque protest. A heads-up: Language Warning.
One Douglas supporter cautioned about responding to the Left by commenting, "Two reasons to never wrestle with a pig: 1) You get dirty. 2) The pig likes it. Never let them pull you into the cesspool, nor allow them to talk you into jumping in. Your unconquerable strength is in your ability to express the truth. They despise you for it. Let them!"
Good advice ... except sometimes the pig is begging to be turned into bacon and Donald does just that with his post. Hang in there, Donald, and all other conservative bloggers who stand up for their principles and their candidates day in and day out.
