D.C. Watson, a longtime friend of Jihad Watch, has a new book out. I can't put the case for it better than I did in the book's Foreword:
D.C. Watson is a man of courage. D.C. Watson is a man of integrity. If we had a nation full of D.C. Watsons, we wouldn't be in the fix we’re in today.
I don’t mean by saying these things that D.C. Watson is some kind of extraordinary human being, possessed of some superior powers, any more than I am, and any more than you are. D.C. Watson is an ordinary man, an American, a man who has tasted freedom, a man who knows who he is and what he wants, and knows what is worth defending.
He is, in short, a man.
And they are in short supply these days. Nowadays we live in a culture of jelly, a culture that believes in nothing, and values nothing except its own lack of standards and values.
A culture like that is ripe for the plucking, ready to be conquered by enemies who hate it not for what it is but for what it was, for what it used to stand for, for what it brought to the world when it had some sense of its own identity and the value of its own contributions to the world.
D.C. Watson is not at home in a culture of jelly. His values, his love for freedom, his backbone, are all at variance with this morass of relativism and nothingness. He stands for something. That’s why he doesn’t fit in.
D.C. Watson is an ordinary man who loves freedom, loves Western civilization, loves his home, loves his family. He is not willing to see the things that he loves snatched away, and the values that he loves eroded into nothingness, and the people that he loves enslaved to tyranny.
And so he acts. And in this he is not ordinary. For most people do not act. Most people do not care. Most people either do not value what D.C. Watson values, and so don’t care if it is all snatched away, or do not know how close they are to losing everything, and to finding out that when they think they’ve lost everything, they have even more to lose than they ever imagined.
D.C. Watson is not going to go down without a fight. Unlike the great mass of his fellow countrymen, he knows what is at stake, and he is determined to make a stand, and to make the enemies of everything that he loves fight harder than they think they will have to.
In this book, he profiles other ordinary people who have done and are doing what has to be done, what everyone should be doing now if they value their freedoms. As such he has provided us all with a blueprint and an inspiration for further action. For much, much more will be needed, and much, much more will be called upon from all of us.
It is good to know that D.C. Watson exists. I hope and pray that there are many more like him.
Become one. Read his book. Learn his lessons.
