“Courage” Defined by Pres. Obama and Col. Allen West

Posted by Steve Markowitz on May 5, 2013

Throughout history words such as courage, patriotism and radical have been defined by the popular narrative of their time.  During the 1950s, the narrative was controlled by the Right, often through anti-Communist rhetoric and McCarthyism.  Currently, the narrative is controlled by the Left.

There is no better example of the Left’s control of the contemporary narrative then the hoopla surrounding NBA basketball player, Jason Collins, publicly stating that he is gay.  As seen in the video below, Jay Carney, speaking for President Obama, calls Collins’ action courageous.  That is a curious claim considering the adulation Collins has received from the press since his announcement.

It is sad what signifies courage in contemporary America.  Col. Allen West eloquently discusses his definition of courage in the second video posted below telling the story of Sgt Greg Robinson.  Robinson recently concluded the army’s rigorous air assault school, even though he is missing the lower section of one leg.  In another time a person like Col. West might have been Pres. of this country.  Today he is considered a radical.
