Carol Platt Liebau: A Crisis of Courage, Indeed

A Crisis of Courage, Indeed

Here is a wonderful piece from one of the remaining brave Republicans in the Senate, Jon Kyl. Senator Kyl points out that "A little practical wisdom, confidence in our cause, and more courage are sorely needed in the war against radical Islamists."

How right he is. In truth, the West is facing not just a crisis of courage; underneath it is a similarly pernicious crisis of confidence. Decades of multiculturalist, left-wing claptrap have left too many in the West unable to distinguish right from wrong -- or basically decent, civilized people from remorseless, barbaric terrorists.

Without the confidence to rally behind our own cause, it's not surprising that a crisis of courage -- which can sorely handicap people of conscience who are battling those with none -- is alive and well.

"Decades of multiculturalist, left-wing claptrap"
A good choice of words again.
If you ignore the "multiculturalist, left-wing claptrap" which I do, then the crisis of confidence does not exist. But the Dems and MSM need the "multiculturalist, left-wing claptrap" so expect more of the same.
