Despite these accomplishments, her teaching contract at a Los Angeles private school was cancelled because of her political – pro-Western Civilization – beliefs. You can read about this here, and watch her appearance on The Huckabee Show here. Since 2016 she has been the President of the American Freedom Alliance and is delighted to co-host The Sound of Freedom with her great friend Elisabeth.
Karen and Elisabeth first became acquainted when Karen, as president of the American Freedom Alliance, sought out Elisabeth to be a speaker at the AFA conference on Islam in 2016. As it happened, they first met in Vienna and have been fast friends and colleagues ever since. They share a love of America, its values, freedoms and general ethos, and they agree that it is the bastion of freedom, the “Last Best Hope,” the shining city on a hill that is a beacon to freedom-lovers around the world.
Their love of Austria, its culture and beauty, also runs deep in each of them, as does their recognition of the role this now small nation plays as a canary in the coal-mine of European freedoms and individual rights.
Both Elisabeth and Karen are mothers, fierce defenders of free speech and passionate about preserving freedoms generally. They each have paid a price for this defense of truth and freedom.
