From The Zelman Partisans:
Losing the War?
I read a lot of RKBA news. Seriously: A lot. (And that matters, as you’ll see.)
One theme that started popping up last week is the idea that RKBA advocates are somehow losing the culture war.
If you read the national news (or watch television, or get your news from mainstream web sites), that’s an easy conclusion to reach. So long as you don’t look too closely.
As I said, I read a lot of news. I must, to put together the weekly TZP news summary. Besides my casual browsing, I use several pre-built news searches on a variety of terms. The terms were selected to produce headlines from various points of view.
Probably 90% of the actual results reflect only one point of view; that RKBA is losing. You see it in “news” reports and Letters to the Editor (LtE) alike. You see it in polls and surveys.
And it’s BS.
And this is how we end up with folks who give up the fight, and simply wait for the revolution in which they hope to kill their enemies.
