I received an email on Saturday that both surprised me….and kinda pissed me off. Zoomie over at Patriot Rising sent out an announcement that he was shutting down operations…..for good.
The reasoning for this decision? That is a good question. I really do not understand as Zoomie references a post he republished that from the sounds of it was controversial and potentially ”dangerous”. I suspect that post may have been taken down as I could not find anything that might have fit that description. I must have missed it when it was originally published.
Zoomie goes on to write a fantastic narrative and description of his displeasure in the current state of this country. As usual – I agree with him 100%. All great hings must come to an end – but that doesn’t mean I have to like it.
What pisses me off is we need his voice out there. Zoomie, Squid, and Grunt provided a voice of RIGHT against the many voices of WRONG that so many of us are exposed to on a daily basis via newspaper, radio, and TV. There are many people out there just now waking up to the realities that all is not what it appears in this country – and they need a voice to talk to them. Patriot Rising no doubt has been that voice for many – including myself.
I feel there is a lot of work left to do for Patriot Rising. BUT……Zoomie needs to do what is best for him and his family. I trust that he has and will make the right decision.
