Tear down this wall!

Reagan_cowboy.jpgIt was 20 years ago today that Ronald Reagan demanded “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!”  That phrase electrified millions behind the Iron Curtain and gave them the moral support needed to continue their struggle against the greatest mass murdering ideology in history.  Ironically, he bucked his own politically correct state department who thought that comment was too incendiary.  He was naturally mocked by the liberal media.

A favorite tactic among liberals opposed to the fence on the US border is to compare it to the Berlin Wall.  But there is a huge difference between a wall built by a muderous tyranny designed to keep people in, and a wall built by a democratic nation that simply wants its guests to visit legally. 

Here is the video of Reagan’s speech.
