Steve Deace: Conservatives Need to 'Do What We Believe'

Friday, 21 March 2014 07:02 PM

Steve Deace, radio talk show host and author of "Rules for Patriots," says his new book is a how-to primer for conservatives.

"We felt there've been just so many great books that have been written by conservatives around the country [about] what's wrong with liberalism, why doesn’t it work, why Obamaism has failed, why you should believe the same as we do. But the one thing we've lacked is a plan," he told Newsmax TV's John Bachman and J.D. Hayworth on "America's Forum" Friday.

"Somebody needed to write a book about how we actually do what we believe," Deace said. "That's exactly what 'Rules for Patriots: How Conservatives Can Win Again' is, that's what it aims to be."

The book is organized in a Ten Commandments style, and the new rules are similar to his "Ten Commandments of Political Warfare," Deace said, noting, "The first commandment is, never ever, ever trust Republicrats… the person who figured out what people want to hear in the post Reagan age of conservatism and has consultants that teach and coach them on how to condescend to us and how to patronize us and what terminology we want to hear. And they get elected on that because they fire us up, and then once they get into office nothing really changes. They get infested with what I call, RCV, ruling class virus."

Deace said he considers almost every member in the House and Senate Republican leadership as a Republicrat.

"For example, I like to refer to him as Ditch McConnell, but you just saw [Kentucky Republican Senator] Mitch McConnell roll into CPAC waving a firearm," he said. "Now you'd never see a real RINO like an Arlen Spector show up at CPAC at all, let alone waving a gun."

He continued, "This is something, again, the consultants get together and they say to Mitch, who's got a very credible primary challenger named Matt Bevin down there in Kentucky, and they say, 'hey this is how you patronize these people. This is how you condescend to these people. And then if you just show up waving a gun, they'll suddenly forget about everything you've done to put the gun of government to their heads, so to speak. That is just one primary name example of what I'm talking about."

Deace had more complimentary words for GOP Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas. Recalling Cruz's filibuster of the Senate's vote on increasing the debt ceiling last month, Deace said, "Ted Cruz gets up there in the back Senate court room there in the Republican caucus and says I'm not going to let you get away with that. I'm going to filibuster that deal so that all of you have to go on the record voting yes or no to cloture because your constituents deserve to know where you really stand on these kinds of issues. Of course, that caused quite an uproar from a bunch of gutless Republican politicians, but I would say a gentleman like Cruz is sort of the antidote to what we're talking about."
