In my daily online reading I came across a reference to Mike Adams’ book Feminists Say the Darndest Things and was inspired to make the article in Salvo about his conversion story available online. So here’s an excerpt from Twice Convicted: The Story of Mike Adams, Atheist Criminologist by Terrell Clemmons from issue 14.
. . . He really didn’t set out to become a radical professor-provocateur, but Mike Adams has never been one to “go along to get along.” It started when he’d get snarky over some of the absurd and utterly stupid content of campus emails. He tried to point out the hypocrisy, narrow-mindedness, intellectual dishonesty, and appalling lack of balance and abuse of authority running rampant in their little corner of academia. But instead of responding to the facts he presented, the offending colleagues either ignored him or, when that didn’t work, threw temper tantrums, called him names, or tried to intimidate him into silence.
So he took the message to a wider audience and started writing a column for Agape Press. When Rush Limbaugh read one of his columns on the air the following spring, Mike Adams was catapulted, almost overnight, onto the national platform he enjoys today. Currently, he writes a nationally syndicated column for Townhall.com and is the author of two books, Welcome to the Ivory Tower of Babel and Feminists Say the Darndest Things.
His adversaries definitely picked the wrong guy to try to intimidate. “There is clearly something wrong with me,” he says, point-blank serious. “I should be deathly terrified with the way that I confront radical Muslim extremists. I should be concerned for my life; I should be concerned for my job. I’m not afraid of those things. But it’s worse than that,” he says, and here his voice drops to a whisper. “I enjoy it.”
