News coverage by conservatives is hard to find – I would argue even more so after this election cycle. Liberal bias in the media has been a problem for as long as I can remember, but there has been another noticeable split – one within conservative media. Some of the places we went for conservative news don’t seem to mesh with our Christian, conservative values anymore. And that’s not even taking into consideration all of the conservative clickbait. Trustworthy, conservative news websites are truly becoming a rare breed.
Part of the reason it’s hard to find is that the grassroots conservative movement isn’t made of money. In fact, many of us in this fight are passionate volunteers. The reality is, it takes money to keep things running. You might even say it takes a village.
That’s why #GivingTuesday and The Resurgent are such a great pair. #GivingTuesday is a global day of giving that’s powered by social media and collaboration. After we stuffed ourselves full of food on Thanksgiving and shopped ‘til we dropped on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, it’s time to shift the focus off of ourselves and on to others. How cool is it that we all come together, from around the world, to share a common value – the value of giving back.
This spirit of collaboration isn’t new to conservatives – we’ve been working together through grassroots efforts across the country to fight for our Christian, conservative values since the days of our Founding Fathers. In some ways, our fight seems to be increasingly more difficult, especially over the past year, when many of us have started to feel alienated by our own political party.
While we’re all fighting for the same values, we don’t all know each other; but we do have the comfort of knowing there are others just like us out there, thanks to people like Erick Erickson and conservative news websites like The Resurgent. Erick Erickson has created a home for resurgent conservatives – a home with values of faith, freedom and family. You can’t put a price on that.
So, for conservative news sites, like The Resurgent, today is not only a celebration of giving back, but also another chapter in our fight – a fight to keep conservative media alive.
