How to Handle an Open Thread on Liberal Blogs
Liberals, being the lazy sons of guns that they are, often have open threads on their blogs. That way they can keep visitors interested in talking amongst themselves, keeping them on their blogs without having to actually do any work.
For us conservatives this presents a wonderful opportunity, if we choose to act on it. Remember, anyone is allowed to post on an open thread. There is no determined topic. This is your chance to take control of the blog and direct the flow of conversation the way you want it to go.
Rule #1: Attack. Hit the liberals where it hurts. This is your time to take control of the debate. Don't pull any punches. You want them on the defensive the minute you're there. Liberals generally aren't very quick thinkers, if you hit them hard in the first post they won't know how to respond.
Rule #2: Attack, but always be courteous. The liberals will troll you, flame you, insult you, use every dastardly trick within their arsenal to assault you without actually joining in any sort of debate. Always keep the higher ground and do not resort to their level. More people are reading these threads than posting on them, and they will acknowledge you for your courteousness and attempts at reason being thwarted by irrational liberals.
Rule #3: Don't be scared off by hordes of liberals trolling you. You may be in their territory, so to speak, but you are right. Don't let yourself be swayed by the growing influx of parrots all chirping nonsene at you like mongrel hordes of dogs.
Rule #4: Join in the side chatter. Remember, this is an open thread and there will be discussion that isn't directly pointed at debate. While you shouldn't let it sidetrack you from the topic at hand (the topic that you began), joining in non-debate discussion will ingrain you into the community.
Rule #5: You are in charge. Don't let yourself be swayed by the liberals. Keep to your point, and don't let yourself be drowned out. If these people are ever to see reason, it will be through your efforts and the efforts of others.
Rule #6: Always keep in mind that your reading audience is far larger than the few liberals who will be responding to you. You probably won't reach those who actually post, but lurkers and those who are just reading the blog will see what you say and pay attention. Remember you are writing for them too.
Rule #7: Have Fun!
