David A. Keene recently joined his friend Ken Blackwell for an in-depth conversation about the unprecedented state of our country.
Ken has enjoyed a successful career with the Republican Party, coinciding with the rise of modern American conservatism. He eventually became Ohio’s secretary of state and is currently a Senior Fellow at the Family Research Council.
The two men discuss the progressive fallacy that America is implacably racist. As absurd as this may seem to any history student, leftists have a huge advantage, having seized control of the education system decades ago.
The 1619 Project is the latest example of how the far-left supplanted its uncompromising ideology over history. Even the Great Emancipator, Abraham Lincoln, is rendered a white supremacist. Part of this perverted worldview comes from the flawed belief that contemporary liberals consider themselves morally superior to anyone in any generation that preceded them. Perhaps another part comes from wanting to see white liberals engage in self-flagellation. This belief system fails to acknowledge that we are all fallible and a product of our time and space. The Founding Fathers’ genius was that they knew that, and they created an extraordinary Constitution, which could be amended.
An unequivocal supporter of the Second Amendment, Blackwell also discusses how the NRA has helped the black community, something its opponents are loath to admit.
