KNIGHT: ‘Stand your ground’ when liberals attack
Question of the Day
Twenty million died under Vladimir Lenin and Josef Stalin in the communist Soviet Union, including millions of Ukrainians who were deliberately starved to death. Cambodian dictator Pol Pot executed more than 2 million of his countrymen in that small, Southeast Asian nation that became collateral damage when America pulled out of Vietnam. Some people died in Cambodia’s killing fields just for the crime of wearing eyeglasses. The authorities thought they might be too well-read to be good communists.
All that said, if you’re running a business, and a guy such as Mr. Durbin turns his inquiring mind to what you’ve funded lately, you can scarcely be blamed for imagining the most lurid headlines associated with your business. It’s a credible threat.
The folks funding the American Legislative Exchange Council should take heart and stand their ground, as Sen. Ted Cruz, Texas Republican, has strongly encouraged. A recent editorial in The Washington Times echoed Mr. Cruz, saying, “Foundations, corporations and plain citizens have the right to support political causes of their choice without fear of reprisal from the government, or even from a U.S. senator.”
More and more Americans are getting tired of being called names merely for not going along with the latest liberal schemes to divide us. They’re looking for someone to stand up to the bullies.
