Westerners Is Our Name Appeasement Is Our Game!

Westerners Is Our Name Appeasement Is Our Game!

Does anyone remember where Augustine of Hippo (Saint Augustine) hailed from?  Well, Hippo, of course, but where WAS Hippo?  Hippo was located in North Africa.  North Africa was once considered solidly Christian.  However, the Christians of North Africa decayed from within.  When the desert raiders of Islam rode into town in the seventh or eight century, they put up little to no resistance.  The denizens of North Africa chose to switch rather than fight – and die.  The once Christian region of North Africa became solidly Muslim and has remained so ever since.

Why the history lesson?  Because we (in the West) are in danger of falling into the same appeasement trap into which our brethren in North Africa fell.

Why do I say this?  Because the headlines today are RIFE with examples of Western appeasement of the demands of an ever-inflexible and unreasonable Islam.

Example #1:
The Dhimmi Leader of France criticizes the few members of the French press brave enough to run the Muhammad cartoons.  (Hat tip: Drudge.)

Example #2:
President Bush picks at nits (about being “thoughtful”), rather than standing boldly like  a lion taking it to the enemy of liberty.  (Hat tip: Drudge.)  (But, what do you expect from someone who considers Bill Clinton his “brother.”)

Example #3:
Bill Handel, KFI, and the despicable Clear Channel cave to the demands of the ever-inflexible asshats of CAIR.  (Hat tip: lgf.)

Example #4:
People are upset that our Government is spying on the Al-Qaeda throat-slitters.
Also: here.  (Hat tip: realclearpolitics.)

Example #5:
People are upset that the US military may be force feeding the Islamofascist thugs at Guantanamo who refuse to eat.  (Hat tip: Drudge.)

Example #6:
There is news about how Yahoo WILLINGLY cooperated (again) with the oppressive Red Chinese Government in the prosecution of a courageous Chinese dissident.

Also here.  (Hat tip: Drudge.)

Regarding the Handel case, it doesn't appear that Handel himself caved (although he did apologize for the timing of the joke, when the wounds were still raw). It sounds like the higher ups, either at KFI or at Clear Channel, forced the issue. Sure, Handel could have resigned, but what would he do then? Work for Disney talk radio? (Perhaps Clear Channel should sell off their talk radio business also. It doesn't look like they can take the heat.)

I don't think the French newspapers were brave. I think they were the spineless, cowardly idiots they usually are. No one benefits from these riots, what purpose does it serve to poke at them? Certainly there should be no riots in the first place, but that said anyone prolonging or aggravating them should be slapped.

bostonmaggie? you feeling okay? anyone publishing cartoons on principle at risk to life, limb, and gainful employment is VERY brave. Proof: The NYT, the Boston Globe, CNN, Time, etc, are all TOO CRAVEN to run the cartoons. Caving to the demands of fascists is called appeasement. I suggest you do a study on these two men (and their response to Hitler): Neville Chamberlain and Winston Churchill. Lessons learned from Hitler: Just "a little bit" of appeasement only enlarges the fascists' appetite for ever more outrageous demands. Don't you see that by winning on the cartoons, the Islamofascists will next time demand something even more outrageous. You don't have to believe me, but you probably will when you are told you have to wear a burkha when you go out in public (which will happen shortly, unless the West grows a spine). -- gunjam

I don't think the French were Churchillian. They are poking around and once the trouble starts, they will flee. They are just posing. Churchill meant to stand up to his enemies and he did. When's the last time the French stood up to anyone (including teenagers in their own country)? What's the biggest penalty in hockey? 3rd man in.
