Today’s read is from Michael Anton, a lecturer and research fellow at Hillsdale College and a senior fellow at the Claremont Institute. It’s loaded with sarcasm to make many points. Here’s an excerpt:
It’s very sad that a bunch of Americans who call themselves “conservatives” and believe themselves to be patriotic have spun themselves up to worry that the American government — in conjunction with those whom these paranoids insist are its corporate allies, or even masters — are gearing up to do here what Trudeau just did in Canada. Which, again, was totally justified and not that bad.
Oh, sure, America has problems. But because America is exceptional, we’ve always been able to overcome ours. We abolished slavery, gave women the right to vote, ended segregation, made MLK Day a national holiday, imposed gay marriage by judicial fiat, and now are about to see a trans woman smoke a bunch of girls and maybe even set world records at next month’s NCAA swimming championships. There’s nothing this country can’t do when it puts its mind to it.
So cheer up, conservatives. Everything is fine.
