Virgil: On This Memorial Day, Breitbart Readers Remember and Look to the Future

In a March 17 piece, “Donald Trump, Rosie the Riveter, and the Revival of American Economic Nationalism,” Virgil took note of President Trump’s speech, two days earlier, recalling the B-24 plant at Willow Run, Michigan. And that article brought forth an outpouring of WW2 memories from Breitbart readers, many of them recording what they had heard, over the years, from fathers, mothers, and other loved ones who lived, worked, and fought in that era.

That meta-theme, we might observe, is the essence of the “American System” of Henry Clay.

POLLAK: Free Trade and the Conservative Intellectuals
