For John, BLUF: We should be careful to not lose our political heritage in a narrow rejection of our common history. Nothing to see here; just move along.

Here is the lede:
Ah, October 25, one of those dates that means a lot to a very few people. A date immortalized by one of the greatest poems in English, a poem we don’t recall as poetry.This is about the Battle of Agincourt, and King Henry the Fifth's speech.
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;[The whole speech is on video at the link.]
Progressives assert that there is "White Privilege" in this nation, holding back others. I would assert that they miss the fact that what bouys our spirits is Anglo-Saxon privilege, a privilege available to all, "we band of brothers (and sisters)," regardless of race, color or creed.
Hat tip to the InstaPundit.
