I’m glad to say that Victor Davis Hanson has recognized us Ohioans for our leadership. In a recent article, “Traitors to the Enlightenment“, Hanson notes the following:
Those in an auto parts store in Fresno, or at a NASCAR race in southern Ohio,[emphasis mine] might appear to Europeans as primordials with their guns, “fundamentalist” religion, and flag-waving chauvinism. But it is they, and increasingly their kind alone, who prove the bulwarks of the West. Ultimately what keeps even the pope safe and the continent confident in its vain dialogues with Iranian lunatics is the United States military and the very un-Europeans who fight in it.
