The Wrap: From RG3 bashing political correctness to Eric Holder’s Kansas problem, the week that was
Question of the Day
Americans learned that the Boston bombers initially wanted to launch their terror attack on Independence Day, and the Obama administration found itself on the defensive once again over accusations of a Benghazi cover-up.
On the international stage, Russia’s strategic nuclear forces are undergoing a major modernization — while the U.S. scales back.
Here’s a recap, or wrap, on the week that was from The Washington Times.
A survey of Republicans found nearly half agreed that “an armed revolution in order to protect liberties might be necessary in the next few years.” The poll, from Farleigh Dickinson University’s Public Mind, surveyed a random sampling of 863 registered voters and had a margin of error of plus-minus 3.4 percentage points.
Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III took to Twitter to espouse his views of political correctness, describing an America that’s well on its way to tyranny.
“In a land of freedom we are held hostage by the tyranny of political correctness,” he tweeted.
The Pentagon’s top brass has dealt another blow to a decorated Army officer who was fired last year as a war college instructor because of his teachings about radical Islam, his attorney told The Washington Times.
A four-star general’s rejection of Lt. Col. Matthew Dooley for consideration for command of a combat battalion likely means the end of a promising Army career of an armor officer who was decorated for valor in Iraq and received glowing evaluations.
ESPN has been pushed to apologize for conservative Christian views expressed by NBA analyst Chris Broussard, who stated a biblical view of homosexuality during a segment about the coming out of free agent Jason Collins.
During an “Outside the Lines” appearance on Mr. Collins — who said earlier this week he was gay — Mr. Broussard was asked by the host about the readiness of the NBA to deal with an openly homosexual player.
