First Amendment Heroes

by Mike Adams - Novermber 5th, 2007 -

Sometimes we forget that Dinesh D’Souza was one of the first to write about the effects of political correctness on university free speech. His early 1990s book, Illiberal Education is a must-read for anyone interested in the topic. And, for those who don’t know it, his sometimes-overlooked Letters to a Young Conservative is loaded with practical (and fun) advice on how to fight back against campus political correctness.

Recently, I realized that I would not be doing what I am doing without Dinesh’s influence. Shortly thereafter, I wrote to thank him for being, not just a great influence but, perhaps, the greatest political mind of our time. I hope some of you will take the time to write and thank him for his role in starting this great free speech revolution in higher education.

When I first started writing about the insanity on our campuses even my own family and friends did not believe the stories. But because of all the people I’ve mentioned today, they do believe me now. And, whenever I get a chance, I tell them “See, I told you so.”

Next week, I will write about young First Amendment heroes who are still in school. You won’t believe how great these kids are when I first tell you. But, later, when they become household names, you will. And, then, I will write again to tell you “See, I told you so.”

Until then, enjoy your precious liberties. Our toughest battles may be still to come.

Our toughest battles are still to come. It is time America remembered what made us great. When the abolition movement failed to disband after the slavery practiced by Muslim governments against whites ended (known in our historical lore as the Barbary Pirates but in actuallity a much larger multi generational problem) it took on the injustice of slavery against blacks here in the Americas. It is forever to our sorrow that America was one of the last in our hemispere to end slavery. However that battle was won, and 500,000 whites died following Abe Lincoln in his war to end the practice and keep America one nation.

If there is honor in those black men and women who would not stop fighting for their own freedom, willing to risk death, how much honor is there in those white men and women who died while free for the freedom of others? What kind of courage did they show?

When did we become such wusses that we are not willing to fight for freedom today? How can we tolerate the injustices that have been re-instituted into our nation in the guise of political correctness? Here in North Carolina the education system is failing to such an extent that half of our black male children quit school because they know that they are wasting their time? They are not getting an education while our teacher's unions are bragging about how their new methods have been scientifically tested and proven superior to the methods that gave us the greatest education system in the world 40 years ago. How can anyone with a brain believe this? How can anyone with a conscience allow them to continue to destroy an entire generation?

It is not just in higher education that these battles must be fought. We need to win these battles on the local level too. Where are the first Amendment heroes of the Inner Banks? Are you ready to be one?
