Ron Silver, for years, has had a dubious place in the annals of conservative politics. During Bill Clinton's first inauguration, the ecstatic Hollywood liberal saw an Air Force jet flying over them. At first, he was filled with hatred, until he remembered, "Those are ours now!"
But then on September 11, 2001, America was changed forever...and so were many of its people. Christopher Hitchens, Geraldo Rivera, James Woods and some other notables had been having second thoughts about their liberal or leftist ideology; 9/11 pushed them over the brink. Another man who would never be the same was Ron Silver. While hardly a Reagan conservative, Silver's eyes have been open to the plight of freedom in the world and America's role in that fight. He took part in the production of the documentary Fahrenhype 9/11 which took Fahrenheit 9/11 to task for its lies and anti-Americanism.
Now Silver has set his sight on what used to be his childhood getaway...the United Nations. (Hat tip: Instapundit)
