Conservative Insurgency takes the form of an oral history of a successful struggle against progressive dominance from the perspective of the year 2041. It is not a novel; instead, it is a rallying cry and a battle plan for constitutional conservatives who feel outnumbered and outgunned by a liberal establishment that wants to make them extinct and Republican moderates who are more than happy to lose if it means they keep getting invitations to all the right parties.
Conservative Insurgency lays out the history of this struggle from the point of view of various participants as America inaugurates a new president and fully re-commits to the conservative vision of the Founders. The testimonies of the characters politicians, academics, activist, soldiers and even a gender-indefinite performance artist who finds that liberalism is more constraining than conservatism ever could be describe a multi-front, long-term political, social, and cultural war designed to seize society s high ground in order to restore the Founders vision.
It is not a war of violence but one of persuasion and action. The weapons are not arms but arguments though the transition is not entirely peaceful as progressives refuse to honor basic rights when it means they must give up power.
Why an insurgency? Because conservatives won t win a stand up fight today the enemy is too powerful, and to do so risks allowing them to destroy us forever in detail. Military history provides many useful analogies for this peaceful struggle. Remember the Vietnamese insurgents during Tet in 1968? They came out of the jungles during that holiday season in an attempt to take over the South in one fell swoop. They were annihilated, despite the best efforts of a liberal United States media to portray it to the contrary. They simply made their move far too soon. They went back underground and, seven years later, they took Saigon.
How does a force that is always losing end up winning? That s the key question, and one the oral histories of the 30+ characters answers.
Author Kurt Schlichter is uniquely suited to write this book. A Townhall.com featured columnist and conservative media commentator, he was personally recruited by Andrew Breitbart to write for the conservative legend s Big websites. Kurt has a large Twitter following and four consecutive Amazon kindle bestselling Political Humor e-books, but he is also a trial lawyer who served in the Army infantry from Operation Desert Storm to Operation Enduring Freedom in Kosovo. His background, including a masters of strategic studies from the United States Army War College, give him a unique perspective on politics, government and the strategy and tactics of an insurgent movement. His work as a stand-up comic helps give this serious subject a humorous edge.
Conservative Insurgency shows how we need to engage the enemy everywhere politics, the media, the law, academia and, as Andrew Breitbart taught us, popular culture. From the faculty lounge to the news room to the recording studio to the boardroom, we will never again simply write-off anywhere in our society to the progressives. There can be no safe havens for those who reject the basic freedoms our Founders enshrined in the Constitution.
Conservative Insurgency is not about losing gloriously but about winning gloriously. Through the experiences of its many vivid characters, it lays out some general concepts and ideas about how to do it. They say the Tea Party is dead. Nonsense. We re still here. We re still ready to fight. And we re going to fight, each in our own way, and take America back.
