America: Know Your Heroes
~ ITEM: Jay Sekulow, Chief Counsel of the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ)
~ ITEM: Big Fed & Speech on Campus: A Salvo
~ ITEM: Greg Lukianoff, President of the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE)
~ SINCE THIS blog was started to support free speech warrior Mark Steyn, you already know he’s at the top of the list of happy warriors doing the needful in times when freedom is treated like a disease.
Two other good folks come to mind.
Support, help, and encourage the current heroes in current U.S. Freedom Wars, like Jay Sekulow, Chief Counsel of the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ); and Greg Lukianoff, President of the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE).
Sekulow is the one defending the IRS target groups; Lukianoff is currently exposing government interference in university speech-codes.
Oh, and the awesome 54 Colorado Sherriffs, too.
Heroes, saith The Binks. ~
Take Hope Back
~ “HOPE”, LIKE “Justice” is become a cuddly modern code-word for many, signifying redistribution, white guilt, statism, and Obama Uber Alles/ Progressive/ cuddly Marxism in the case of American politics.
Hope is far older, and one of the theological virtues, the opposite of which is sloth/ despair/ mindless activity, cynicism. Hope is grounded in God, and as Wikipedia puts it, is an “expectation of and desire of receiving; refraining from despair and capability of not giving up.”
