By now, everyone has read the “Liberty Kids” article published by Reuters and carried by the Drudge Report and countless other outlets. No, no, actually we’re the Los Angeles County Republican Liberty Cau– OK, so people in media just like “Liberty Kids” better. We can deal with that.

So here’s the photo essay of how Amir Zendehnam (secretary), Noah Johnson (treasurer), and this post’s author Nick Hankoff (chair) reached true stardom and received Hollywood treatment in Texas, home of The Glenn Beck Program on The Blaze.

When I received the call from the producer, his first words were, “Is this Nick Hankoff?”
“Now listen,” I said, “the Republican National Committee isn’t getting a dime so stop call-”
“No, I’m calling from The Blaze. Glenn Beck wants to have you and a couple of your friends on the program to talk about what’s happening out in L.A. We’d fly you in to Dallas and set you up in a hotel and fly you back the next day. Sound good?”
“Free BBQ sounds good.”
“No.”
“JUST KIDDING! I LOVED GLENN BECK’S RESPONSE TO THE BORDER REFUGEE CRISIS! CAN’T WAIT TO MEET HIM! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!”

So I called Noah and Amir. Next thing you know, we’re on our way.

The three of us didn’t know what Glenn Beck was going to ask. We quizzed each other on Rothbardian ethics until we nearly initiated aggression on ourselves. To relieve the anxiety, we decided to get our faces and hair did. The closest salon we found was conveniently located inside the state-of-the-art studios of The Blaze.

We felt and looked much better!

The rest is history. Check out The Blaze’s coverage of our appearance with more video clips here. Glenn Beck and his team made us feel right at home. Seriously, they rock. Freedom is known to bring people together, and we hope it brings us back to Dallas for a longer visit next time.

The obligatory BBQ photo/video. Thank you Hard Eights. Go there and you’ll be licking the toothpicks on their bacon-wrapped chicken jalapeno poppers.
