In his TownHall.com opinion piece Trump and the Traitorous Critic Fallacy, Ian Haworth advocates a loser's strategy for conservatives. The article is worth reading for the truth and education it contains, but Hawsworth needs to wake up to communication in 2019. He's right that "love it or leave it" is just an emotional reply to insufferable fools. However, in his assertion that we need to (solely) use "objective metrics" to rationally refute the Left's bad ideas, Haworth misses what the president understands: a purely rational discussion of logic and facts will not be covered by the media—legacy or—so Nobody will hear it. An issue must get legs (be heard) before it can go anywhere (influence opinions). The Left has mastered evoking emotional knee-jerks. We are masters at making the rational case for liberty and protecting individual rights. We always win thoughtful debates, but if we're going to win hearts and minds, we've got to be more savvy about getting attention and stirring emotion. President Trump is quite good at that.
Principal Replaced After Making A Student Take Off His Trump Jersey At A Patriotic-Themed Football Game
Schools should have broad leeway to govern what students wear. Obvious examples of inappropriate clothing include T-shirts with profanity or pornography, and "painted on" pants. Short of the obvious, principals must make judgement calls to facilitate academic, behavioral and social order. A boy wearing khaki cotton slacks and a button-front shirt will feel less inclined pick a fight than when he is wearing jeans and an old T-shirt from a Five Finger Death Punch concert. Principals should set standards and school boards should back them.
Accordingly, a school-sponsored event must have standards, albeit more relaxed. In this case, the principal appears to have abused her power by censoring a political view she opposes, or to have demonstrated starkly poor judgement. A shirt promoting Jew-hater Farrakhan or alcohol use are inappropriate for a school-sponsored event, but a star-spangled, Statue of Liberty torch-bearing, "Trump 45" jersey at a patriotic-themed sporting event was wholly appropriate, as would have a red, white and blue, Obama "Yes we can" shirt.

Interesting article, but we think he's wrong about the new spending fiasco signaling our "death." What these fools do in D.C. and Raleigh is what motivates us; is does not reflect us. As for the GOP coopting "most of the larger tea party groups to do the party's bidding," we were there any Tea groups that supported this statist atrocity?
