Last week C-span2 broadcast a very inspirational speech presented by Nick Adams. Click here to watch it and hear him proclaim that the world is a better place because of the United States.
Here's something he said I had not heard before: More African Americans have come to the U.S. voluntarily than were brought as slaves. That's interesting. It's something Americans who were subjected to the racial strife of the past few years might like to know. It also raises a curiosity about voting patterns of the descendants of those two groups.
Adams is not content to simply preach about the good that is the U.S. He's trying to get that message into the schools with his FLAG project:
The university has become the seat of anti-Americanism in America, and is the most anti-America mainstream institution. They advocate and take actions that are anti-American in their effect, if not their intent. This includes airbrushing, or rewriting history, and prioritizing change and diversity at the expense of greatness in curriculum choices.
Modern universities should be the first line of defense of liberal Western civilization and freedom of speech- of which America is the pinnacle- but a moral compass disappeared from most campuses a long time ago.
Turning that around is a tall order. But when asked what it would mean to make America great again, many Americans might say fixing that problem could be second only to turning around the main stream media.
In any event, for a patriotic booster shot, watch Nick Adams on C-SPAN.
