Jerry Agar, who is a far-right radio shouter, hates Fight The Right. That, of course, delights me.
In his review – which is more about me than the book – Jerry suggests it lacks facts.
Which moves me to ask Jerry: facts, like when someone falsely passed themselves off as American in Kansas City papers? Those kind of facts?
Didn’t you attack Michael Ignatieff for doing the same thing, Jerry?
These guys slay me.
God, not government, gives liberty

…The Founders, unlike kings, knew it wasn’t their right to take our life and liberty. They set up a system in which the government derives its power from the people and its moral guidance from God.
Because we elect our representatives, we can be a godly country with godly leaders while never becoming a theocracy.
If we were to truly achieve a separation of church and state we would have set up a government that has no moral authority above itself.
What then will be our rights? Whatever the government says they are. What Uncle Sam giveth, Uncle Sam taketh away. Who says he can’t?
I believe God says he can’t. The Founding Fathers believed it as well.
