Since It’s Now Okay to Smash Things, How about Helping NR Smash Our Webathon Goal?

We are seeking support — our new four-day webathon goal of $150,000 has met with over 1,400 donations, totaling $134,000 as of 5 p.m. on the East Coast, God bless you all who have helped — to call out the window smashers. But unlike the vast majority of American media, let’s be honest: These marauders are more intent on smashing the foundation of our Republic.

Over our dead bodies: We’re keen on fighting them tooth and nail, hand to hand, brandishing the truth, which in the end will always win out. As Rich Lowry put it in his exceptional call to arms:

Now, more than ever, it’s crucial to have a fiercely independent, intelligent, and fearless conservative publication speaking the truth and defending right reason — when everyone around us is going mad, and marauding bands threaten to set our cities back decades.

National Review is that publication.

The webathon — which will sustain NR in this epic battle for the soul of America and western civilization — ends tonight at midnight. We believe there is time for those who have yet to join NR’s band of brothers and sisters to do so. It’s no stretch to believe we can gain that final $16,000. We’re confident that 100 good souls will contribute $100, and that they’ll be joined by another 100 defenders of freedom who can afford to send a $50 donation, along with another 80 friends of conservative principles and enemies of lawlessness who can see fit to keep NR in the fight with a $25 gift.

Helping NR is one way — and a consequential one — of fighting back. Donate here. You do that with our deep and heartfelt appreciation.
