Star Parker, founder and president of the Center for Urban Renewal and Education, recently appeared on Victory News to discuss the situation in Afghanistan. She also wrote about it in her recent column.
She called what’s happening a “sad debacle.”
“When we start thinking about the values here in America, and how unraveled they are, we need to check ourselves. We’re trying to persuade people around the world that the ideals of America work and will work for them. We need to persuade them that terrorism is not the right order, that they could live free, that God has gifted them, that they, too, can live free.”
Yet, Star says, we can’t seem to express this. When half the country keeps claiming there’s systemic racism, how can we expect people like the Afghans to fight for freedom when it doesn’t work for Americans?
Watch Star’s segment, which starts at 6:05, to hear what she had to say about President George W. Bush’s intentions in Afghanistan versus President Barack Obama’s.
