Thos Halvorssen is a young, handsome human rights activist and founder of the Human Rights Foundation. He was born in Venezuela where his father was a powerful and connected individual who was at odds with the Hugo Chavez Socialist government. His mother, too, was opposed to Chavez and persecuted for her beliefs. As Thor Halvorssen reached adulthood, his opposition to Venezuelan Presidents Chavez and Maduro was extended to the Cuban Socialist regime of Fidel Castro. Right-leaning Republicans saw him as a potential ally in their fights against progressive governments, but a humorous interview on Fox News proved that Halvorssen could not be easily pigeonholed. Enjoy the Fox News interview gone horribly wrong here:
To explore this advocate for freedom a reporter from the Weekly Standard, a right-wing newsmagazine, wrote an in-depth study of the enigmatic Thor Halvorsen. What the magazine discovered was that Halvorssen is opposed to dictatorial regimes no matter what the avowed political leaning.
What we do know about Halvorssen is that he is intelligent, handsome, young, well spoken and has a European Worldview that has been gained from his extensive travels around the globe fighting against tyranny wherever it occurs. He is a dedicated fighter, pugnacious, and energetic to a fault. He is the biblical David of human rights fighting the Goliath of oppressive countries that control all aspects of human rights that we in the United States of America take for granted.
Halvorssen continues his work around the globe, but the battle may be lost. One only has to look at the repressive Islamic-inspired governments that totally control their citizens and leave them without freedom of personal expression. Until the world is rid of these oppressive regimes, the people will continue to suffer under millennia-old rules that do not express the best of humanity but expose the misogyny and corruption of religions that feature dominance as one of their abiding principles.
