Jim DeMint Responds to Russian President Vladimir Putin Opt-ed In New York Times

In The New York Times —on September 11, of all days — Russian President Vladimir Putin had the nerve to take issue with the idea of American exceptionalism. Someone had to respond, which of course, we could not rely on President Obama to do. Former South Carolina Senator, and Heritage Foundation President Jim DeMint, rose to the occasion. Jim DeMint made the case that yes, all humans are created — however, not all nations are created equal.

Perhaps overplaying his hand, but because our fearless leader isn’t so frightful, Putin wrote:

It is extremely dangerous to encourage people to see themselves as exceptional, whatever the motivation. There are big countries and small countries, rich and poor, those with long democratic traditions and those still finding their way to democracy. Their policies differ, too. We are all different, but when we ask for the Lord’s blessings, we must not forget that God created us equal.

Heritage President Jim DeMint actually sent the letter to President Putin today, which explained why he was wrong. Read the letter below:
