Tribute: Lily Tang Williams

A rare tribute post saluting Lily Tang Williams.

She posted the photo above, and these comments, on FB:
I am a Chinese immigrant and an American citizen by choice. I once was a slave before and I will never be one again.

I will always stand with my AR, no matter what my President signs with his pen.
Alexander Solzhenitsyn reminds us that Communism is Communism, and those who are free have an obligation to fight.  At all costs.  Mao, Stalin, and many of America's Democrat voters all share the exact. same. dream.
And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?... The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If...if...We didn't love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation.... We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.
Immigration is the hot topic this election cycle.  Trump and Cruz, assuming they are as pro-immigration as they say, should be fighting over Ms. Williams.  She is the perfect example of the type of immigrant this country needs: rabid and vocal anti-communist, self-sufficient, and an assimilated American.

ZH has more, including video of Williams' March 2015 statement against SB15-175, a Colorado bill to reduce magazine capacity.

And look!  This is not my first post with Ms. Williams.  Good for her!  I hope she will contact me and claim her free Glorious Hat.  (Actually, I'll try to contact her.)
