Independence Day is Saturday and Americans will be celebrating our great country. Most Americans would agree that America is exceptional compared to the rest of the world, but there are some liberals who like to downplay America’s greatness. President Obama said, "I believe in American exceptionalism, just as I suspect the Brits believe in British exceptionalism and the Greeks believe in Greek exceptionalism." Obama loves to make statements like those. He goes around the world apologizing to other nations for alleged wrongs that America has committed. Liberals especially like to make sure that our schoolchildren are taught that America is only as good -or even worse- than other nations.

Ann Coulter lives up to her reputation of issuing warnings and political comment nobody else dares to say. Her newest book, “Adios, America!” is aptly titled because she makes the case that it is goodbye to the America we know and love if we do not stop diluting our population with people who do not love America, do not respect our Constitution and laws, do not even speak our language and commit all sorts of unspeakable crimes. “Adios, America!” brims with the scathing humor that has made Ann’s previous ten books into best-sellers. It explains the attitudes and customs of foreigners whom Obama is welcoming by the millions into America, including their horrific mistreatment of very young women and even some younger than teens.

Sinai.” Today’s liberals, however, are at the forefront of efforts to erase any mention of religion from the public square, especially in our schools and colleges. What changed in the years between Truman’s time and our own?

It’s no longer just conservatism that’s a problem on college campuses: now we’ve got students objecting to things that just remind them of conservative ideas. The Student Government Association at Johns Hopkins University passed a resolution stating that Chick-fil-A is not welcome on the campus, because the restaurant’s presence would cause “microaggressions” against the campus gay community. The students said that they vehemently oppose the CEO of Chick-fil-A speaking out against gay marriage, and they were concerned that gay students might have to walk past a campus Chick-fil-A. By the way, there has never been any plans whatsoever to build a Chick-fil-A on the Johns Hopkins campus. Yes, you heard that right. These kids are so terrified of Chick-fil-A that they came up with this entire scenario on their own.
