Allen West is away on the annual National Review cruise
As we pulled out of the port, it struck me that my life has become the intersection of two great champions of civil rights and conservatism: Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and William F. Buckley Jr. I was born and raised in Dr. King’s neighborhood in Atlanta, and now I’m cruising for the magazine first published by Buckley in 1955. Nowhere other than America could this story be told. Equality of opportunity, not outcomes, is the American way, the American dream.
The family is out on the deck as we make our way out of the channel to the North Sea. I have always admired the Viking warrior culture. Now I get to visit their homeland. One of my favorite movies was “The Vikings,” with Kurt Douglas, Tony Curtis and Ernest Borgnine. The History Channel series “Vikings” was doggone good as well.
I wish you all well and will be providing some Facebook updates on the excursion.
Steadfast and Loyal,
