This evening, 6:30 Central Time, I’m scheduled to be on KTKK 630 Talk Radio, “The Voice of Utah” out of Salt Lake. I’ll be on the Kyle Betton show, “Kyle 2K,” which airs weekdays from 5pm to 7pm (Mountain Time). This is curious, because Betton had no idea of my issue with Sundance Institute and Robert Redford. He’d been looking at my recent articles on FrontPageMagazine, and contacted me. How apropos, then, that the capital city of Utah, Salt Lake, some 27 miles north of Redford’s Sundance Ski resort, is the place from which we launch the first stage of attack!
It has become immediately apparent, of course, that the front line of Redford’s defense will be the hordes of tan-skinned, dark-haired, dark-eyed women in the world who simply idolize him. They know nothing of his ideas, his intents, his Institute; they only know what a grand attraction he is to them, and they think only of his wonderfully “American” movies, like The Horse Whisperer (1998), The Natural (1984), and of course, The Sundance Kid (1969). I mean, how “American” can make a guy? We’ve already noted his famous ‘Indian-killer’ movie, Jeremiah Johnson (1972), which, however, paraded no special patriotic cause, no triumph of anything but Redford’s macho image. Horses, baseball, cowboy/western outlaws, and Indian-killers, what more could they pack into an American icon?

No, I doubt that I will be able to enlist many women in this cultural raid, this soon-to-be cause c
