Political Correctness and the Cultural Battlefield in America
Report by Betty Sakai
Founder of FLAG (www.flagusa.org), Foundation for Liberty and American Greatness, Nick Adams introduced his life’s work to a large holiday-celebration at the Conservative Forum. With a pronounced Australian accent, Nick talked about FLAG as a patriotic movement actively seeking to confront the Left culturally across America in school classrooms and in the local, national, and international media. FLAG, he emphasized, is committed to stopping the defamation of the American people, to making American exceptionalism reach the hearts and minds of Americans.
As a child, Nick Adams had survived neuroblastoma cancer. He is appreciative of the diagnosis by an exceptional American doctor fresh out of medical school, even has he endured three years of cancer treatment. He survived, by the grace of God.
Growing up in an educated family, his parents believed that America is a force for good in the world. Young Nick Adams yearned to immigrate to America. At the age of 17, Nick watched the World Trade Center tumble down and decided then and there that he would immigrate to America, that it would be his responsibility to stand and protect and defend the United States of America. He explained: when America is strong, the world is strong. When America is weak, the world is weak. Countries like individuals, he added, must have an identity, a reason for being. America’s reason for being is its exceptionalism. It’s not by accident that Western Civilization depends on America remaining strong.
Growing up in Australia, Nick Adams earned his undergraduate and postgraduate degrees from the University of Sydney. He taught English. His father taught math. Both experienced the suffocating policies of bureaucratic Leftists. Nick discovered that “given the choice between a leader who conforms to the consensus, and a leader who creates consensus to their own visions and goals, Australians will always choose the former.” Leftist policies and the media are the establishment’s gatekeepers in Australia and the establishment enjoys the support of the Australian people. Nick was elected to political office at the age of 19. He became the youngest Deputy Mayor in Australia’s history at age 21. All the while, he yearned to immigrate to America.
Determined to become a U.S. citizen to make a difference in the world, Nick discovered that legal immigration into America is not easy. Like a light shining through a sea of darkness, Nick tells an incredible story of the enormous expense and difficulties experienced by legal immigrants over the red-carpet welcome Leftists provide illegal immigrants. His story is one of steadfast persistence, finally receiving the coveted Extraordinary Ability Green Card. The difficulties of Nick’s journey are chronicled in his 88 page book, Green Card Warrior, My Quest for Legal Immigration in an Illegals’ System, Post Hill Press, 2016.
FLAG is a 501 (c) (3) charitable organization. Donations are tax-deductible and can be made on line @ www.flagusa.org/donate. Nick explained that FLAG is not a think tank but a battle tank. Money donated facilitates the work of those actively confronting the Left’s army of anti-Americanism called “teachers”. Donations to FLAG secure for thousands of students a Constitutional Renaissance. Working to confront the Left in the media, FLAG works to compliment patriots like Pete Hegseth, Col. Allen West, and Charlie Kirk. The FLAG movement is sweeping across the country creating a voice for Americans. For too many years there have been no patriot troops on the ground opposing America’s enemies on the Left.
Adam’s book, The American Boomerang (2014), was endorsed by The National Review, The Heritage Foundation, The Washington Examiner, and the Dartmouth Review. He has received personal endorsements from Gov. Mike Huckabee, Chuck Norris, Dr. Ben Carson, Glenn Beck, Dick Morris, and Col. Allen West. Always ready to speak to groups and at meetings, to military bases, to schools and churches, Nick Adams fights for America to experience renewal. Honored by Texas Governor Rick Perry in 2013 and made an honorary Texan, Nick is fluent in German and has addressed groups in several countries including Germany, England, and South Korea.
Noting that nearly everyone relies on the news for their understanding of the world, the truth is that a dishonest media has led listeners and readers to believe the world hates America. Dominating the media for over fifty years, the Left is responsible for creating the hatred of America.
FLAG’s goals are: (1) To be an unfailing presence in the national and international media to provide a pro-American voice, (2) To strengthen families and to honor learning, expanding charities and questioning the value of multiculturalism, reviving citizenship, rebuilding defenses, limiting government, reasserting sovereignty, and upholding freedom of conscience, (3) To change the world through education to show why America is the best place in the world to live challenging anti-American arguments, focusing on middle schools, high schools, and universities.
American children, Adams lamented, are overwhelmingly brainwashed to admire the European welfare state as opposed to the American values of individual initiative and responsibility. Patriotism is undermined by the secular Leftist’s curriculum that teaches students to believe in welfare values, not American values. Curriculums are airbrushed. History is rewritten. Change and diversity are prioritized at the expense of greatness. Universities should be the first line of defense championing free speech but they have lost their moral compass. On racial matters, the Left has done immeasurable harm by constantly telling black children that the white majority disdains them. All of this is a lie. America is the least racist multiracial country in the world.
In his book, Retaking America, Crushing Political Correctness, (2015), 32 year old Nick Adams commits to a complete overhaul of the system. He is taking the culture war to education and to the national and international media, calling out their dishonesty. He believes that no less than civilization is at stake.
Anti-American forces have been allowed to run amok and as a result America has been weakened internally. Americans are confused about what it means to be an American. We are less confident, less patriotic, more divided, less principled, more relativist, and less morally courageous. FLAG believes that America cannot be restored at the ballot-box. It’s going to take a cultural revolution through education to correct years of malicious misinformation. The media’s narrative must change. FLAG’s 10-Point Plan is to end waste, pay back the debt, limit government, wipe out political correctness, protect the borders, preserve Judeo-Christian traditions, end the culture of entitlement, cut taxes, exercise knowledge and fidelity to the U.S. Constitution, and keep the peace through superior military advantage.
Nick Adams asked, “What if there is no America?” Concerning Islam’s age-old war against Western Civilization, Nick Adams referenced a recent polling of 100 million Muslims supporting violent jihad. If there is no America, there would be nothing to stop Islam from destroying Western Civilization. No other country in the world can prevent the cruelty, terror, torture, the tyranny of non-democratic regimes. There are tyrants through-out the world, including in Africa. Without America, the light of liberty on earth would be extinguished. Taiwan would be overrun by Communist China. Islamists would take over where there are majority populations of Muslims, installing Sharia Law, enslaving women, murdering gays, suffocating freedom. War in the Mideast might annihilate Israel and cause the deaths of millions. Without a strong America, the world will become a place where tyranny and terror are commonplace.
The Forum audience thanked Nick Adams with standing applause. In the Q & A session that followed, Nick Adams was asked a number of questions. Asked his opinion on 49er Colin Kaepernick, he quickly answered that Kaepernick should resign. He added, players and teams that disrespect America should be boycotted. Asked how he is able to get into public schools, Nick Adams answered that he has never been turned down. In classrooms he talks about patriotic principles and headlines the achievements of exceptional Americans like Walt Disney. Speaking at a Catholic School in St. Louis, MO where he encountered extreme racial tensions, Nick answered that we must counter the Left’s lies with reality. Asked about his position on the 2nd Amendment, Nick Adams quipped, “Without the 2nd Amendment, all other Amendments would only be recommendations.” Asked about his position on Donald Trump, Nick said that he started admiring Trump in June, 2015. He recognized that Donald Trump understood more than the others about where the world is today, that Trump had gotten into the game to change the culture of the Left’s influence in America. Asked about Muslims and Islam, Nick answered that Islam is absolutely not compatible with America. All Muslims follow the Quran and the Quran requires Muslims to participate in replacing U.S. Constitutional Law with Sharia Law when their populations reach a majority. He added, Muslims have been more passionate than us in pushing their agenda. We must be more passionate about pushing them back. Asked about Common Core, Nick Adams answered bluntly, “Any teacher who distorts or changes history is a traitor.” Kids he said should never apologize for being an American. Why would anyone want to be a world citizen when they are an American citizen? Asked about the United Nations, Nick Adams said it is corrupt, weak, and ineffective. And lastly, he was asked about California’s lost political leaders. He answered that many feel intimidated by the Left. We must encourage and empower those willing to stand for Conservative principles.
Nick Adams talked about this year marking America’s 240th anniversary. History tells us the lifespan of great nations tend to be between 200 to 250 years. America is in the “kill zone”. Enemies of America are no longer foreign, but also domestic – teachers, professors, celebrities, the politically correct. If America is to reach its 300th year anniversary in 2076, the work of those willing to stand up and be counted as Conservatives must start now.
The Forum thanked Nick Adams with bountiful applause. His youthful energies and message of hope for America complimented the Conservative Forum’s holiday celebration.
