The Common Constitutionalist is branching out. In addition to my daily blog and a number of sites I already contribute to, I’ve been asked to write an exclusive weekly commentary article for the popular national conservative website, World Net Daily. Naturally I accepted. I’d be a fool not to. I am joining the likes of Ted Nugent, Ann Coulter and Judge Andrew Napolitano.
Once a week I will provide a few paragraphs of my latest article and a link to the WND site.

Courage is defined as the quality of mind or spirit that enables a person to face difficulty, danger, pain, etc., without fear; bravery. I would disagree, but only slightly. Courage can also be defined as acting bravely in the face of fear. One can be fearful, yet still act courageously.
Courage isn’t defined by protesting in a free and safe environment like a college campus or a mall. Courage isn’t defined by today’s feminists, or LGBT-rights activists and their infantile “pride” parades. It certainly isn’t defined by the phony Black Lives Matter movement and their schoolyard-bully tactics. True courage is rarely witnessed in a free society where there is no real threat of reprisal.
The last time we saw true courage in America was the real civil rights movement, in which those like Martin Luther King peacefully stood up against the threat of actual retribution and for it, paid the ultimate price.
So in today’s environment, for a Muslim to speak out against his own faith and his faith’s traditions is indeed the definition of courage. But this is exactly what Dr. Youssef Ziedan is doing.
