  • Campuses Nationwide Celebrate Freedom Week 2011

    11/18/2011 12:19:49 PM Posted by Patrick Coyle

    GPN Berlin Wall100 high school and college campuses took part in Freedom Week 2011.

    Conservative clubs and Young Americans for Freedom chapters across the country tore down Berlin Walls, warned their classmates about runaway government spending, and honored America's military.

    Conservatives at Providence College hosted Yan Bielek who escaped then communist-controlled Czechoslavakia. According to an article in the campus newspaper, Bielek was told as a child that the communist government supposedly supported individual freedoms, but soon came to learn that was a lie, "Bielek says that there was only freedom of speech, 'if you spoke in favor of Socialism' and no religion was allowed at all. The pay was on average $75 per month for workers, which would not change for the rest of a person's life. This left many citizens without proper funding for retirement, including Beliek's own grandparents, who needed to be funded by his father.

    Conservatives at Florida State University, Florida Atlantic University, UNC-Chapel Hill, UCLA, and Grosse Point North High School YAF Chapter among others tore down a mock Berlin Wall on November 9, the anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall.

    The University of Washington YAF chapter placed 3,500 flags in the campus quad to symbolize the 350,000 troops stationed around the world protecting our freedoms.Devon Ciby who is chair of the YAF Chapter at Bellarmine College Preparatory held a Freedom Rally which included close to 300 students and faculty.

    Sarah Telle with Marshall County High School YAF encouraged her classmates to write thank you letters to soldiers. Quoted in her local paper, Sarah said, "We really wanted to do something for the soldiers here at the holidays. They don't get to come home and spend time with their families like we do and we just wanted them to know how much we appreciate the sacrifices they are making for us."

    • repeatedly that I think immigration past a crtiaen (as yet undefined) percentage of the total population over a short period of time (once again, yet undefined) is a danger to an ordered society.It is clear to me, from having spent time in the UK, that your major cities past this undefined number quite a while ago, and little assimilation is possible at this point. The immigrants have their ghettoes and they have little motivation to assimilate. You guys do have a real problem. Of that, there is no doubt.Additionally, I want to make it clear that I have my doubts that Muslims can, at all, be expected to assimilate. That is not to say that there are not decent human beings who happen to define themselves as Muslims. I have known such people personally. However, it seems that, wherever one goes in the world, if Muslims are asked the question, "Do you want Sharia law imposed here?" 25-45% of the Muslims polled will respond, "Yes."Therefore, it seems apparenet that Muslims immigration is ALWAYS dangerous.That does not mean that all immigration is dangerous. It seems quite clear to me that Indian Hindus, and Japanese, Chinese, Viet Namese Buddhists, and South American Catholics, and African Protestants make decent and fine immigrants.I live among such people, and I have no trouble getting along with them.

    • / I can't believe all of the ignroant comments on this article. you are full of hate. as an APU alumnus, I can say that I really didn't care for the school too much. what I am most offended by is the way that so many of you can make such harsh judgments without having any affiliation with the university and using "jesus" to do it. I don't know what bible you read or what jesus you believe in, but he is certainly not the one described in the gospels. you think you have the market corner on christianity, and you use common american rhetoric to support your violent and polarizing political agendas. you are the pharisees. you take your hate and try to conform your christianity to it. instead of creating a worldview around the love of christ, you want to see the great american jesus smash all competing worldviews. your christ is feeble and submits to american ideologues. guess what? christianity is 2000 years old and has gone through countless developments. think about how many nations put jesus as their poster-boy and their citizens thought they were apart of some godly heaven on earth? basically every country in the western world has gone through that phase. jesus christ unites all people through his love and takes care of the thieves, prostitutes, and tax collectors. jesus was not political, for his "kingdom is not of this world. if it were, [his] servants would fight to prevent my arrest by the Jews. But now [his] kingdom is from another place." john 18:36.

    • Very interesting, <a href="http://jfxdqxfb.com">thknas</a>.I've seen that happen both ways--people driven to more liberal positions by being around knee-jerk conservatives, and people driven to more conservative positions by being around knee-jerk liberals.

    • Visual art takes me on a little jonruey. Whether I'm looking at sculptures or photographs, the scene in a sugar, panoramic egg or one painted on a canvas ... whether I'm examining hand-made toys or weavings, cartoons or print ads ... for as long as I choose to look, I'm transported there. I get a glimpse at another world ... another perspective ... another view. How flat life would be without these jonrueys!
