Conservablogger Power Quote

"...But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security..." The Declaration of Independence

No Violence Challenge Issued to Full Political Spectrum - Will YOU Take the Pledge?

In the aftermath of the Shooting in Arizona, many media sources have wrongfully politicized a crazy person's act.

The left expects America to embrace tighter restrictions on gun rights as well as restrictions on free speech claiming they both contributed to the rampage.

I have never heard any conservative pundits encourage violence as a way of securing their political goals. Therefore, restrictions on political media would be unjust.

Today, Glenn Beck issued a challenge to the full political spectrum. The challenge was to TAKE THIS PLEDGE of nonviolence which is contained in Glenn’s letter to the American people, politicians, and media. This challenge has been extended to President Obama and his entire cabinet, as well as people like Van Jones who encourages “the bottom” to “rise up”.

Does the political left, the hard-leaning progressives have the courage to publically denounce violence as a means to obtaining their political goals? We shall see, won’t we?

Here are the Pledge Bullet Statements:

** I denounce violence, regardless of ideological motivation.

** I denounce anyone, from the Left, the Right or middle, who believes physical violence is the answer to whatever they feel is wrong with our country.

** I denounce those who wish to tear down our system and rebuild it in their own image, whatever that image may be.

** I denounce those from the Left, the Right or middle, who call for riots and violence as an opportunity to bring down and reconstruct our system.

** I denounce violent threats and calls for the destruction of our system – regardless of their underlying ideology – whether they come from the Hutaree Militia or Frances Fox Piven.

** I hold those responsible for the violence, responsible for the violence.

** I denounce those who attempt to blame political opponents for the acts of madmen.

** I denounce those from the Left, the Right or middle that sees violence as a viable alternative to our long established system of change made within the constraints of our constitutional Republic.
