Rob Cunningham writes a powerful article for American Thinker on how seeing The Undefeated can absolutely change the political landscape as we know it, for it reveals the truth about Governor Palin's record, rather than the narrative the media has dished out to the American people. Read on:
During this anniversary month that marks America's independence, and inspired by a personal sense of patriotism, I implore every freedom loving American to see Stephen K. Bannon's documentary on the life and career of Sarah Palin. And furthermore, every conservative, Tea Party activist, free-market capitalist, persons of faith or no-faith, and all influential leaders, regardless of whom their preferred 2012 presidential candidate might actually be, should leverage all their talents, skills, resources and creativity to ensure the maximum number of people experience this movie in public theaters.
Stay with me on this, please.
Why do I make this claim? The simple clarity and raw truth offered in "The Undefeated" stands at the ready to educate tens of millions of citizens, perhaps influencing an entire generation of voters. This documentary deeply connects, on both an intellectual and emotional level, and stirs one's very soul. This film brilliantly serves as a modern-day case study, and clearly illustrates how our agenda-driven news media, entertainment industry and political power brokers brazenly operate, in plain view and with cold-blooded intentionality, in a tireless attempt to destroy a very decent fellow citizen. When presented with basic facts, Americans will recoil in disgust.
If principled republicans, tea-partiers and libertarians choose to no longer remain silent, misinformed or "neutral" while one of our strongest and most influential "movement conservatives" is repeatedly and falsely attacked, we will empower every single person and candidate within our movement.
If, as members of the modern grass roots movement, we individually or collectively fail to mount an informed and honorable public defense of one of our generation's most influential, ethical and popular figures, then I submit we [have] surrendered our courage. What message are we communicating to our neighbors and children if we stand by in silence as one of our most courageous, honorable and accomplished leader receives regular virtual stonings from our friends, family and media?
The Sarah Palin I deeply appreciate, the accomplished, effective and popular citizen of Alaska, was the highest rated U.S. Governor in the history of Gallup polling, one who maintained statewide favorability ratings that exceeded 80% during both 2007 and 2008. She actually enjoyed an Alaska voter approval rating of 88% on the very August day in 2008 she was selected as the Republican party's vice presidential candidate. Her life is remarkably extraordinary, yet one our traditional media refuses to tell.
"The Undefeated" will be released the week of July 15th through July 21st at AMC theatres in 10 major US cities. A positive reception at each of these theaters is critical to ensuring a much larger national audience benefits from this film. Those interested can purchase tickets online at http://theundefeated.cinedigm.com/tickets.html.
In one July week, our entire conservative movement can become enormously stronger if we work together and "get out the viewers." Invite a few friends, visit with your neighbors or organize a youth group. By making a concerted effort to better educate ourselves and our fellow citizens, the best and brightest conservative leaders across our nation will benefit.
It's easy to make a point. It is so much harder to make a difference. If conservatives in ten cities become engaged and encourage all they can to attend "The Undefeated," we'll each be making a positive difference in America. We'll be helping to bring educational value to a generation of citizens and possibly impacting their lives, forever.
