Join the #LadyGang: Pictures and Video from The Dana Show

Last week, I had the great pleasure of appearing on The Dana Show on The Blaze alongside my sister Anna Maria and gal pals Ashe Schow, Ashley Sewell, Bethany Bowra, and Lauren Luxenburg. This was my first time on TV–an experience I will forever cherish.

We went on Dana Loesch’s show to discuss REAL women’s issues beyond birth control and abortion. I was one of six panelists on the program. We were also joined by an all-female studio audience. (Conservatives hate women? WRONG.)

Here’s more about the program from The Blaze:

Dana Loesch has been an outspoken critic of the so-called “war on women” since its inception, saying Democrats are conflating actual rights with the non-existent right to have other people pay for your birth control.

On her Blaze TV show Friday, Loesch brought in an audience full of women to weigh in on the controversy, finishing the show with a mock “pajama party” where she read some of the hate mail she received this week.

“The female resistance marches on,” she said. “We’re bringing the war on women to them.”

One of Loesch’s main issues with the “war on women” was that it relied on women to “accept premises at face value.”

Women were essentially told, she said: “If we don’t pass healthcare we’re going to starve because we don’t have birth control for sexual recreation purposes! Old, white, Republican men [will] physically block our access to contraceptives by refusing to pay for them! And women, we have to vote for Barack Obama if we want the right to vote! Forget that we already have it. We need it again!”

Tired Of #BroChoice? Meet Young Men Who Are Standing For Life

stand4life

The socio-political-cultural blog Counter Cultured released a video called “Young Men Speaking Out for Life” today. The blog, which is managed by my sister Anna Maria, aims to merge culture and conservatism.

Here’s more about the video:

Often, abortion advocates silence men from speaking out against abortion, arguing that they cannot have a say in an abortion, because it’s not “their body.” Recently, we have heard much talk about the #BroChoice movement, which sadly consists of men pushing for abortion.

Countering all of that, 28 young men from across America participated in our pro-life young men’s video project, answering two questions: “Why are you pro-life?” and “Why should men be pro-life?” Clearly, these young men have an important message for America: men also matter when it comes to abortion, and that the unborn child in the womb is their child too. We hope this video inspires more young men to proudly speak out for life and tell the mainstream media and abortion advocates that they will be silenced no more.

UPDATE:

The video has been featured on Townhall.com, LifeNews.com, and The American Spectator.

Examiner.Com Article Profiles My Sister Anna Maria (@AM_Hoffman), Counter Cultured (@CCultured)

An article about my sister Anna Maria Hoffman (Counter Cultured founder/blogger) appears in Examiner.com today.

Here is an excerpt from the article:

For those inclined to believe there are no young people in line to inherit the mantle of perpetuating the traditional values which have wrought God’s blessings upon the U.S.A., Examiner gives you Anna Maria Hoffman.

While many Christian youth fritter away the time playing “church,” being trendy and “tolerant” sipping their Starbucks Grande Frappuccinos, and discussing what new “ink” they want next, this remarkable, God-fearing lady at the tender age of 20 devotes an abundant part of hers championing traditional values.

An outspoken apologist of Christian morality, particularly – but certainly not exclusively – through the Counter Cultured blog she created and co-administrates with others including her sister Gabriella, Anna Maria is engaging the American culture head-on and full-out.

By all appearances a kind-hearted but certainly most uncompromising soul, this conservative pro-life, pro-natural marriage activist bravely jumps into the fray in a manner which would weaken the knees of many other Christians.

Anna Maria has been active interning for the D.C. based Family Research Council in the past and intends to return this summer after she graduates (this week) from UC San Diego with a B.A. in Human Development.

This despite having been inside the FRC facility during last year’s shooting in which heroic building manager Leo Johnson was shot and wounded while thwarting what could easily have been a horrific killing spree.

My Sister Calls Out Family Research Council Shooter Who Targeted Her, Co-Workers

Domestic terrorist Floyd Lee Corkins – who threatened to “smear their [FRC employees] faces with Chick-fil-A sandwiches” and attempted to carry out a mass-murder spree last August- plead guilty to three charges this week, namely committing an act of terrorism. He faces up to 70 years in prison.

You might be asking yourselves, “Why is this conservative chick is so worked up about this Floyd guy?” Well, I take great issue with this individual and would display the same anger on anyone who wishes ill on conservatives or innocent Americans.

On August 15, 2012, Corkins targeted my sister Anna Maria Hoffman (then a Family Research Council intern) and her co-workers at the Family Research Council’s Washington, D.C., office. He shot building manager Leo Johnson and then was immediately apprehended. (Being Washington, D.C., it is one of the worst cities in terms of crime and gun control policies.) Thankfully law enforcement came to the scene and took this incident seriously.

I remember that fateful day like it was yesterday. I was into my third day as the new Northeast Regional Field Coordinator at the Leadership Institute. I was in a meeting with our company president before I heard the news. After the meeting ended, my co-workers informed me that there had been a shooting at the Family Research Council. I was in disbelief. My sister was there finishing her final week as an intern, and my heart began to race and pound deep in my chest. I immediately thought the worst- my sister had been shot or killed. I withheld tears as best as I could. Thankfully, I discovered on my phone that my sister was all right and safe. She assured me that all was well and that her building was on lock down. I could sense that she was scared and frightened, yet calm and collected. My dad, who flew in that morning to visit us, came at the right time and provided that much-needed comfort then. When I saw my sister after work, I could sense she was distraught. When a guy attempts to commit mass murder at your office, how else should you react? It’s scary and terrifying. My dear little sister had every right to feel this way. I was afraid I had lost my best friend, my flesh and blood. Luckily, she and her co-workers were spared the worst. Without a doubt, Anna Maria and I were thankful to be consoled by our dad that day.

Fast-forward to February 8, 2013 – nearly six months after the shooting. How has the media responded? Except for conservative media outlets, the Left has completely shoved this story under the rug. Given this, my sister offered her take about being one of many people targeted that day in an entry at her blog Counter Cultured today:

I was one of those people who could have been his victim. I was on the 6th floor of the FRC building working on my pro-life internship assignments. I could have lost my life. My dear friend Rosa and everyone else in the building, including my boss Jeanne Monahan, now president of March for Life, could have lost their lives.

That fateful day has only reminded me of how precious life truly is and how important it is to live every day as if it is your last. I thank God every day that our building manager, Leo Johnson, prevented Corkins from carrying out his intended act of violence. Leo’s courage and strength helped prevent what could have been a heartbreaking tragedy. Leo is a real hero that I will continue to thank for the rest of my life.

It saddens me and brings tears to my eyes that a person like Corkins would resort to violence out of political disagreement, especially on the topic of gay marriage. It breaks my heart that Southern Poverty Law Center facilitated his intent to commit such a horrific act of violence by labeling FRC as a “hate group.”

In case you weren’t aware, she and I support traditional marriage. (That makes us fascists and Nazis, right? Wrong.) Anna Maria and I were raised with a set of principles and traditional values. No one has to agree with our views, but we ask that you respect our right to express them in a civil way. We have no hatred towards anyone (with the exception of  communists and anti-Semites, mind you).  We only wish our opponents well and hope they can respect different opinions.

Many conservatives also share this worldview. We don’t resort to violent means to achieve our goals, although the mainstream media will tell you otherwise. We’re free to disagree on the marriage issue and all other issues. That’s what living in a free society is all about. We’ll defend your right to express your views, and we hope you’re respectful enough to defend our right to express ours. Fair deal?

I don’t care whether you support gay marriage or not – if you stand for civil discourse, I hope you – especially gay rights’ activists on the Left – condemn people like Floyd Corkins. If you think targeting conservatives with violence and premeditated murder is conducive to healthy debate in America, then you need to reevaluate your tactics and think twice about lending support to dangerous people.

American leftists are eager to shut us up. The least our fellow Americans can do is behave human.

Thank you everyone-namely friends, family, co-workers, and fellow activists-for your prayers and for extending your support to my sister and Family Research Council following the August 15, 2012, incident.  May we console one another and work together to advance our cause without living in fear.

G-d bless.

Earth to Generation Y: You’ve Been Cheated By Obama’s Administration

555306_4466860913583_1041459048_n

Last Saturday, I had the privilege of speaking at Maryland Conservative Action Network’s “Turning the Tides” conference in Annapolis, MD alongside three other young panelists – Brandon Cooper, Brian Meshkin, and Trae Lewis.

Our generation will be hardest hit by Obama’s disastrous economic policies. Therefore, it’s imperative that conservatives bolster their numbers with more young people. Conservatism, not a diluted version of it, will entice people to our side. Any attempts to abandon conservatism will lead to more elections lost and less voter turnout.

Those in attendance enjoyed hearing from us on the panel. Everyone gave wonderful speeches.

My speech beings at the 19:28 mark.  Let me know what you think!

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.” – Ronald Reagan

Media Alert: Counter Cultured’s Anna Maria Hoffman and Blogger/Actress Kira Davis To Appear on Dr. Phil Show

Today, my sister Anna Maria Hoffman (founder/editor of conservative socio-political blog Counter Cultured) and our friend Kira Davis (blogger/actress/commentator) are taping a segment about “slut shaming” on The Dr. Phil Show. The show will air on Friday.  I ask that you pray for them and have them in your thoughts. They will be going up against the “YouTube Slut” and a young feminist who uses vulgarity to advance her message. I look forward to Anna Maria and Kira demolishing their arguments.

Here is more about the show as listed on Dr. Phil’s website:

Friday – January 18, 2013

Girls Who Bash Girls Who Dress Sexy

Dr. Phil takes on the hot-button topic of what some are calling “slut-shaming” — when young women are taunted and harassed, often online, for their sexual behavior, such as having casual sex, having more than one sexual partner or dressing provocatively. This form of bullying, like others, can lead to tragic consequences. Fifteen-year-old Felicia Garcia sent her last tweet, “I cant, im done, I give up,” before jumping in front of a train, while many of her classmates looked on. Friends of the freshman say she was tormented by bullies for alleged sexual encounters with football players. Did her classmates go too far? And, what can parents and students do to prevent another senseless act? Grab your teen, sit them down and watch this powerful Dr. Phil together!

Hoffman Sisters Comment on Importance of Youth Involvement in the Conservative Movement

This past Monday, my sister Anna Maria Hoffman and I went to the 4th Stop Taxing Us Tax Day Tea Party in Oceanside, CA.

Anna Maria (right)  and I (left) are pictured here. (Thanks to Dr. Gary for taking this priceless photo.)

Like good young conservatives, we decided to go to the event and assist our political godparents – Donna and Woody Woodrum – with the Eagle Forum of San Diego booth. A cameraman approached us and asked why we were at the event. You can see what we said starting at the 0:32 mark:

The Implications of Sperm Donor Dads

The Sperm Bike in Copenhagen- 07

In an age where marriage, family, and Judeo-Christian values are under siege, it is important to pose the alternative. With contraceptives, abortion, and other unorthodox practices readily available and accepted, sperm donors should not come as a surprise.

In my time at college, I have seen ads in my university paper calling for egg or sperm donors. Most college newspapers advertise the same services. They entertain offers to make bank by giving sperm or eggs to labs for research and/or  “humanitarian” causes.

In a time where students need money, this seems like a good prospect. Why not – give your sperm off  through little to no effort and make money! How awesome is that?

Nevertheless, do students who partake in this understand the implications of their actions? Do they understand how many children they may potentially father?

My sister Anna Maria Hoffman, who also contributes to TheCollegeConservative, expounds on this unethical and equally demoralizing practice in her column “Sperm Donor Daddy: The Breakdown of Society“:

“On September 12, 2011, Style Exposed aired a program called “Sperm Donor”, which features 33-year old Ben Siesler, a man who has fathered 74 children. When he was in law school at George Mason University, he donated to a local sperm bank for three years and never knew he fathered so many children until recently. For each month he donated his sperm, he received $900. Throughout the documentary, he has trouble telling his fiancée Lauren about his 74 children, while they both discuss wedding plans and the possibility of having children of their own in the near future.
