A British friend of the American Conservative Movement...

A Brit at Restoration Weekend 2006
By Brian from London, March 9, 2006
"The Center for the Study of Popular Culture held its annual Restoration Weekend between February 23 and 26 in Phoenix, Arizona, and for British friends of America like this writer it offered the perfect occasion to forget briefly about the troubles of my native “Eurabia” and rub elbows with some of the leading lights of the American conservative movement.

This was my second Restoration Weekend. I am a British citizen who is critically interested in the state of the world but also dismayed at the diffidence with which much of Europe, including my own U.K. government, has met the global threat of Islamic militancy. This is coupled with a strong revulsion for the predominant mood of anti-Americanism in Europe. Thus I view the Restoration Weekend as a chance to remind myself that the country that twice came to Europe’s side during wartime; that led and paid for the rebuilding of Japan and Germany; and that helped defeat the Soviet Union is indeed the land of the free and the home of the brave..."
You can grab podcasts from the weekend here. Sounds like a GREAT event...maybe next year.
