Would You Trust Your Country to the "Mommy Patriots?"

With a name like AS A MOM: Sisterhood of the Mommy Patriots, you've got to know these people are mindless drones, using a manipulative Frank Luntz tactic as a way to ooze sincerity.

According to the web site, they are a "Network of principled mothers, grandmothers, daughters, & guardians of our nation's children dedicated to the 9 Principles & 12 Values," referring to the 9:12 Project, the brainchild of Glenn Beck. Here's the caption beneath the video you can watch above:
On Friday September 25, 2009 Glenn Beck had a special entitled “The Mother’s Challenge: A 9.12 Project.” During the final thoughts section Dr. Frank Luntz said, “If you begin everything with ‘as a mom…‘ You win.” That thought, and a brilliant comment by Nancy, during a discussion of the feeling of being alone, referring to her friends calling themselves “Sisterhood of the mommy patriots,” were the inspirations for starting this site.

One tweet went like this: " the matter of two hours last night AS A MOM added 2,000 more members. In a few days they were up to 14,000. Moms/grans join non-partisan "Mom: Sisterhood of the Mommy Patriots"

Well since it is non-partisan and I hate phony, mindless sheeple groups like this, plus I'm a daddy, I should join for balance. After all, it's non-partisan, whatever that means.

  2. Please do not hesitate to join MOM. We're ready, willing, and able to welcome you and teaching you a thing or two about argumentation (and life), and we can do it without resorting to statements that only serve to describe the ramblings of an author unable to present an well-researched, honest opinion. You'll need more than empty ad-hominem attacks to carry on a discussion with those "mindless drones." You know - the moms of America!

    Looking forward to hearing from you on MOM!

  3. Funny stuff. I know if I were starting a "left" wing group of daddy patriots, the last thing I would do is use a "trick" devised by propagandist Luntz, to win arguments as my organizations name. Maybe I should start everything on my blog with "As a daddy, Sen. DeMint is a crazy bastard."

    To assume you and your group are patriots is a truly a partisan elitist thing to think. Sorry, I'll try to behave in "your" country.

    As someone conservative, it's hard to hide your authoritarian tendencies when you suggest "teaching you a thing or two" in your response. Please teach me more.

    As far as researching anything, you didn't do to much of that when you visited the site, ignoring the many researched postings. Nice try at a dig.

    If you didn't know, your site is cloaked in secrecy, with no available information without signing up. Why would I join any group who's only information is a regurgitation of Glenn Beck's bloviating.

    Why would you assume I didn't give an honest opinion. I'm assuming you didn't like it.

    Oops!! I'm sorry, I forgot I was writing to a Mom of America. Your exceptional.

    Thanks for the empty, adhominem rambling comment. It was fun.

  4. There is no 'secrecy cloak' with .
    Please feel free to join up, read what the MOM's have to say. Are you afraid you won't be approved by the admins there?

    I mean, seriously, you aren't afraid of a bunch of MOM's are you? ? ?

    And believe me "Glenn Beck' is not the man behind the curtain. I think he's just as stunned as we all are at the success we MOMs can do when we stick together and have an attitude of wanting to raise our children in a Free, morally and ethically responsible society.

    Your response to Mary sounds as tho you might be a little frightened by a group of conservative women. Of course, we did carry and bring LIFE into this world. How many men can say that?

    If you need a little handholding to get through the site, please feel free to ask, there are a bunch of MOMs who have had to hold the hands of their children as they go through new and unfamiliar places. We'd all be up to the task.

  5. Boy, are you angry? You sound so tense? Did Luntz and Beck hit a nerve somewhere? Or is the fall of the state mainstream media troubling you? I'm sorry.

    What "researched postings" are you talking about? You mean the false propaganda stuff you spew on your website. Wow, I'm impressed!

    Your comments make it evident that you have never researched the MOM site. You have certainly never read the countless stories of American women men, and families (yes, there are male members) who have worked hard and sacrificed much to make this country great. But you probably would never want to read these stories because that would be too much for you to bear! You'd probably throw up.

    So, I'm so sorry if your frustrated, angry, and can think of anything but sarcasm for relief, but we are here to stay,with no apologies. For too long the likes of you have controlled the agenda, but NEWSFLASH, we are energized and determined to change that! America isn't perfect, but it's the best you can get in this world! We are proud of her and are sick of liberal apologist and appeasers.

    Liberal globalist like you, whose only cause is to destroy the fabric of America, will be challenged every step of the way by the conservative, partisan-elitist,authoritarian, mindless drones" who are the mothers of most men in America! We are excited, motivated, joyful, and moving out to impact this nation, so watch out!

    You did get one thing right - MOMs are exceptional!

    Enjoy your anger! We're enjoying life!

  6. Take note of two important issues: Conservative projection, where you think liberals think like you and respond like you. It's just not true.

    Paranoia: The liberal media is a conservative myth you've come to believe yourself. For example:

    William Kristol, the republican neocon admitted and said,
    “The liberal media were never that powerful, and the whole thing was often used as an excuse by conservatives for conservative failures.”

    Matt Labash, senior writer for the Weekly Standard, said, “ We come with a strong point of view and people like point of view journalism. We’ve created this cottage industry in which it pays to be un-objective. It pays to be subjective as much as possible. It’s a great way to have your cake and eat it too. Citicize other people for not being objective. Be as subjective as you want. It’s a great little racket. I’m glad we found it actually.”

    I find it fascinating how conservatives, Republicans and multitude of constitutional scholars out there like to rip liberals a new one and then accuse us of being the angry ones. Listen to yourselves. My best friend is a gun toting conservative born again, and brags how he warned me how the conservative media would end up whining louder than the liberals did over the last eight years and show how hypocritical they were.

    Everyone who commented here offered no examples of how I have not researched the included topics. The odd cliche' I see from right wingers is the standard, "no examples, you sound angry...etc." If I spew propaganda, disprove something, anything.

    As a stay at home father, I understand my sons more than you might know your own. In my family, with my help, we had children. I can honestly say that I brought life into this world. I'm not sure how you reproduce.

    Finally, the idea that the opposition party is out to destroy the country demolishes your credibility. Making half the countries citizens the enemy is just plain pathetic. I hold military personal at the same level as a hard working 9 to 5'er, because they're all doing their part for America.

    Again, "Mommy Patriots" betrays your fears and anxieties normal citizens don't have. We don't wear patriotic flag pins to make up for our insecurities and try to marginalize our fellow Americans by making such declarations.

    Luntz's "As a Mom" advice is really low down. I'm amazed you can't see that.

  7. I thought the group was supposed to be non-partisan. Is this wrong? Amy said it's a group of conservative women in her comment. In addition, Glenn Beck and Frank Luntz aren't non-partisan in the least. It seems as if this mommy patriot group is not being very honest in how they are selling themselves.

    As a patriotic, principled, politically moderate mom, I'm pretty turned off by the self-righteous tone of the website. But then, I doubt I'm the type of person they're trying to appeal to. I'm sure they are going for the Glenn Beck audience, and I find him to be hysterical, illogical, dishonest and more than a little self-righteous himself.
