  • Morning Again: A New Era For Conservative Activism

    11/9/2010 2:26:36 PM Posted by Evan Gassman

    Berlin Wall DownThis is just the beginning! Now that Election Day is over, students from across the country are preparing to hold Freedom Week 2010 activities. 

    Freedom Week, a campus tradition created by Young America’s Foundation in 2004, honors the anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. Students often create a mock Wall, and then tear it down on November 9 at 4:30 p.m. ET, the same time that the real Wall came down more than 20 years ago. This year the anniversary holds more significance: not only are students celebrating the fall of communism abroad, they are reminding students of the recent rejection of socialist ideas at home. 

    Freedom Week also gives students the opportunity to properly acknowledge Veterans Day and support the military and ROTC. In addition, students will educate their peers about the President Reagan’s successful efforts to challenge and defeat communism.

    Today is the anniversary of the Berlin Wall. Today is officially recognized as “World Freedom Day.” To coincide with Freedom Week, we ask that students request their universities officially recognize today as a holiday worth celebrating.

    During Freedom Week, Young America’s Foundation will also be hosting the West Coast Leadership Conference , November 12 to 13, at the Reagan Ranch Center in Santa Barbara, CA. This will be the first major conservative conference since November 2. More than 150 participants from 19 states representing more than 70 colleges and universities will be attending this year’s conference. Speakers will include Senator-elect Mike Lee and previous Bush administration speechwriter Marc Thiessen.

    • I agree with your comment. Nigeria is too deiedvd along the ethnic line to fight corruption, not to even metion the chinese method. Whenever you read story about corrupt politician (or even Boko Haram), do you noticed how the discussion immediately turn to ethnic bashing or defense? This is why it is difficult for GEJ to fight corruption or Boko Haram? Take the case of the Hon Farouk Lawan versus Otedola bribery incident, notice how the issue became ethnic issue rather than being treated as individual corruption case. Same thing with Boko Haram killings, the position of an average Nigeria as to whether or not the Boko Haram members should be dealt with as terrorist group depends on which ethnic group the Nigerian belongs to. Our country is in a state of collapse, but we the people can't even come to a point of agreement. For a Nigerian, there are more loyalty to tribes and family than loyalty to country. There is nothing like national pride for a Nigerian (except during football games) .
