Appeasement denies Freedom
I thank God that I live in a democracy. Growing up, the socialist propaganda that we pandered to, saw my economic freedom at its lowest. Thank God, we've changed and I love the new freedom I enjoy. The freedom to consume products and services from around the world.
The worst life is one that's bonded. Politically, economically, culturally. Not standing up to such enslavement, and pandering to movements that support it, is called appeasement. The last great hope against such appeasement was called George W Bush. The latest name to appeasement is Barack Obama. It worries me no end when I take in Obama's foreign policies that are aimed at tolerating if not supporting tyrannical regimes around the world that prevent their citizenry from what must be their birthright, Freedom.
Micheal Leeden warns us of Obama Appeasement policies when he says,
Winston Churchill: “An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.”
They like to call themselves “realists,” but their proper name is “appeasers.” They follow in the hollow footsteps of Neville Chamberlain, who signed an agreement with Hitler, believing it signalled “peace in our time.” But it only encouraged the Fuhrer to believe that there was no will in the West to resist the onslaught of Nazi terror, and thus hastened the onset of the Second World War. As Churchill darkly told Chamberlain upon his return to London, “You were given the choice between war and dishonor. You chose dishonor and you will have war”...
The current appeasers have less excuse than the British Prime Minister, who thought he could forestall and perhaps even avoid a war with the Third Reich. If they were really realists, the appeasers of today would recognize that we are already at war, and that, just as in the epic struggle against Nazism and Fascism, the only proper mission for the West is victory. Instead, they seek dishonor, and the effect of their dishonorable campaign is to encourage our enemies, weaken our will, condemn the victims of radical Islam to death, torture, and misery, and hasten the day when we will be forced to fight on a much larger scale, perhaps even in our own land.
