In late April, 2020, Thomas G. West, professor of politics at Hillsdale College, joined Dr. Larry Arnn, president of Hillsdale, and two other esteemed conservative academics, Kevin Portteus and Adam Carrington, in a symposium to discuss, “The Coronavirus and the Constitution.”
Normally I single out just Dr. Arnn, as no one, in my opinion, is more versed in everything related to our founding fathers, the documents they created, and how prescient their thoughts and writings are and how they still apply to today’s societal ills.
What most impressed me, beyond the obvious expertise of the subject, is his plain-spokeness. He didn’t spend his time spewing talking points or bloviating in academic gibberish speak, as virtually all leftist academics do.
West plainly and succinctly explained how the left is violating, not only our natural rights, but their oaths of office to uphold the national and their owns State’s Constitutions.
