The pseudonym “Robin of Berkeley” has a very Robin Hood-esque feel to it. And as far as fugitives from the leftist sphere of thinking go, Robin is very much like Robin Hood–one who fights against the powerful on behalf of the oppressed. She’s also, possibly literally, one-in-a-million. Having once been a radical feminist who attended pro-choice rallies and anti-war demonstrations, she came to the realization that people she once shared that common bond with weren’t thinking for themselves when they began participating in Obamamania.
So, Robin did the only thing a thinking person can do. She defected to the conservatives. She realized that what she had been fighting against all those years was actually not what she was told it was by her liberal peers. She began foraging in her local community near Berkeley for other conservatives and didn’t find very many. Over the past 2 years, though, she has found a supportive network of real conservatives…as well as a promising voice on AmericanThinker.com.
I’m just discovering her writing, but I was instantly a fan when I read these posts today:
- Paranoia Strikes Deep in Obama’s America
- The Wilding of Sarah Palin
- The Left’s Corruption of Youth
- How to Influence a Liberal (But Not a Lunatic)
Robin, please don’t stop writing. We the People need you.
