Announcement: Dr. Jim Garrow joins Conservative Firing Line

If you’re a fan of Dr. Jim Garrow, author of The Pink Pagoda: One Man’s Quest to End Gendercide in China, we have good news for you.  On Friday, October 6, Dr. Garrow joined our team of contributors and will be offering his own unique commentary on issues of the day.

Dr. Garrow has led quite an interesting life.  According to a post at the DC Clothesline:

Dr. Jim Garrow is the Christian founder and executive director of The Bethune Institute, a charitable organization dedicated to advance education in China via teaching English, giving free books to poor Chinese, and medical scholarships. Through its branch organization, The Pink Pagoda, the institute also rescues baby girls from infanticide  in China, and finds homes for the unwanted girls. Dr. Garrow is credited for saving the lives of over 50,000 Chinese girls for which he was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.

Last year, Garrow told the world (via Alex Jones’ radio, Glenn Beck, and other conservative media) that Obama’s U.S. military was purging top brass using a “litmus test” of sorts. High-ranking military officials were being asked “Would you fire on an American citizen?”. Garrow claimed that if one answered no, you would be fired.

At the time, he wrote:

I have just been informed by a former senior military leader that Obama is using a new “litmus test” in determining who will stay and who must go in his military leaders. Get ready to explode folks. “The new litmus test of leadership in the military is if they will fire on US citizens or not”. Those who will not are being removed.

I recall that story quite well, and interviewed Dr. Garrow for an article I published at the now-defunct Examiner.com.  While the site is no longer in existence, an archive of the original article can be seen here.

He also discussed the claim in this interview with WHDN:

He came under intense fire from many on both sides for that information but stuck to his story.  Moreover, he never released the name of his source to me until our conversation Friday morning.

We look forward to his commentary on current events, and we hope you enjoy his posts as much as we will.

You can see his articles here.
