Expanding the Ranks

THE FIGHT FOR WESTERN VALUES

One thing the Right has to watch out for is not thinking the fight for Western values belongs only to them. Rights like free speech, after all, once were known as liberal values before liberalism transmogrified into something not liberal.

Yes, there will be johnny-come-latelies as more Molly Norrises lose their naivete. They need to be welcomed and defended. The fight belongs to all. What's striking about the movie :"El Cid" is that the character of Rodrigo prevails by welcoming all to the battle against the fanatical enemy Ben Yussef. The idea is to isolate and marginalize your opponent-- not yourself.

Molly Norris's fight is everyone's fight. Everyone who believes in the values our nation was birthed with 234 years ago.
