There is a reason conservatives have been so success with new media, social media and spreading their message on the ground, and it’s one the mainstream media hopes you never figure out. The grassroots conservative movement, or as we like to say, “the new American Revolution,” is being led by Generation Y.
Steven Crowder, Madeleine McAulay, Hannah Giles, and Misfit’s very own Brandon Morse joined guest host (and Misfit favorite) Dana Loesch on the GBTV set to talk about what they’re doing to impact culture and bring a voice to conservatism, and how you can get involved.
On Tuesday’s show, Brandon explained to the studio audience that “the media has become this big boogie man [to conservatives] that we have to fight against, but it’s not something we need to fight against. It’s something that we need to get involved with. What we put into the mainstream is what changes the culture. If we, as a movement, start getting more involved in culture – movies, music, video games – I guarantee you things will improve at the polls and in politics.”
As we’ve seen first hand here at Misfit Politics, Brandon’s absolutely right.
Steven Crowder, comedian and Fox News contributor, also pointed out that the demographic conservative media is appealing too is, let’s face it, OLD. Steven noted the overplayed Goldline and Head-On commercials. Has anyone been able to avoid the ‘easy-eye keyboard’ commercials? (Seriously …who the heck is buying that?) Nothing says “watch my show young hipsters,” like a bright yellow keyboard cover that protects the keys on a 1995 Gateway desktop.
While Fox is worried about appealing to mom and dad, take control of the media narrative for your generation – get involved. Like Steven said, you don’t have to wear a bow-tie and be a Tucker Carlson look-a-like to be a conservative.
Be yourself, and please, be authentic.
That is far more threatening to the old guard on the Right, and to the Left we’re just plain scary.
So, what can you do to sell conservatism? Get involved in the things you already like: Music, movies, video games, art, etc. You don’t have to quit what you love to get involved in politics. Infiltrate the things you love – no one will see you coming.
