  • Photo from the TelegraphLech Walesa, who has spoken at multiple Young America's Foundation events, unveiled a statue of President Ronald Reagan in Warsaw yesterday to honor President Reagan's contribution to ending Soviet oppression in Poland and the rest of the Eastern Bloc.

    Young America's Foundation agrees with Walesa: Reagan played a major role in ending communist tyranny in Europe. The statue is of Reagan delivering his famous "Tear Down This Wall" speech at the Brandenburg gate in 1987. This speech was the centerpiece to Reagan's constant pressure on the communist regime in the Soviet Union and certainly helped lead to the fall of the Berlin Wall.

    Lech Walesa, Tadeusz Mazowiecki, David DreierMore on the event from Fox News:

    Former Polish president and anti-communist leader Lech Walesa unveiled a statue of Ronald Reagan on an elegant Warsaw street on Monday, honoring the late U.S. president for inspiring Poland's toppling of communism.

    Though Reagan's legacy is mixed in the U.S., across much of central and eastern Europe he is considered the greatest American leader in recent history for challenging the Soviet Union.

    The moniker he gave it -- the "evil empire" -- resonated with Poles, who suffered greatly under Moscow-imposed rule.

    "I wonder whether today's Poland, Europe and world could look the same without president Reagan," Walesa said. "As a participant in those events, I must say that it's inconceivable."

    The 11.5-foot bronze statue depicts a smiling Reagan in a historic moment -- as he stood at a podium at Berlin's Brandenburg gate in 1987 and said the famous words, "Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall."

    • Standing next to Nobel Peace Prize winners Mikhail Gorbachev and Lech Walesa would only hhligight the fact that Ronald Reagan deserved one but was snubbed by leftist elites.It would be great conversation if he went though...."Let's see, I broke Poland free from Communism, Mikhail over there got his prize for surrendering to Reagan.....what did you do? Did you surrender to someone already?"
