As her first tour in 3 years winds down, our own Carrie Underwood brought her “Cry Pretty Tour 360” to Tulsa’s BOK Center thanking fans for patience.
“There are lots of reasons for that,” she said. “I had myself another baby earlier this year,” proudly noting she has her sons on tour with her. “It’s hard, but also really wonderful at the same time. Every day is bring your kid to work day.”
The First Amendment and the very idea of free speech are under attack in America today. A growing number of Americans don’t believe you have the right to speak your mind if what you have to say might offend someone, somewhere. They advocate for “safe spaces” in which people won’t be offended by ideas they may find troubling. But is that what America is about?
Tulsa’s Leftist mayor and City Council with help from the daily newspaper continues a war on history and fact in today’s coverage of Native American Day yesterday – you remember the day, the national holiday; Columbus Day.
Granted some just hate Italian-Americans or Catholics and some in history like Karl Marx provide foundation for those like Howard Zinn “lamenting Columbus’s discovery of America as the birth of capitalism.” (A People’s History of the United States, New York: Harper 2017)
Quickly understand that a Native American Day in Tulsa is a fabulous idea, but it doesn’t have to happen on a national holiday dedicated to an American Hero.
