Charlton Heston will be greatly missed by many. Nancy Reagan has also paid tribute to Mr. Heston. Mr. Heston was a long time friend of her late husband, former president Ronald Reagan. They both died after suffering from Alzheimer’s disease.

In December, 1997, Mr. Heston gave a great speech to the Free Congress Foundation, which hit the nail on the head about the serious problems that we face and must correct. Here is a small sample:

“The Constitution was handed down to us by a bunch of wise old dead white guys who invented our country! Now some flinch when I say that. Why! It’s true — they were white guys! So why should I be ashamed of white guys? Why is “Hispanic Pride’ or “Black Pride’ a good thing, while “White Pride’ conjures shaven heads and white hoods? Why was the Million Man March on Washington celebrated by many as progress while the Promise Keepers March on Washington was greeted with suspicion and ridicule? I’ll tell you why: cultural warfare!”

Mr. Heston also criticized “feminists who preach that it is a divine duty for women to hate men,” and “blacks who raise a militant fist with one hand while they seek preference with the other.”
