Appeasement Fails



“An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.”

Winston Churchill uttered those timeless words in response to Neville Chamberlain’s pathetic and pusillanimous appeasement strategy toward Adolf Hitler and Nazi Germany. Chamberlain foolishly thought that he had secured “peace for our time.” All he had really secured was a rain of Nazi bombs over London shortly thereafter.

Appeasement didn’t work against Adolf Hitler in World War II and it won’t work today against the rise of Muslim terrorism across this nation and worldwide.

American politicians don’t get it and won’t get it until there’s another Brussels or Paris or 9/11 in this nation. And it will happen. It’s just a matter of time. Why? Because the vast majority of American political leaders, both Democrat and Republican, both liberal and conservative, simply do not have the stomach for the fight. They lack both the guts and the will to confront Islam. The result is that more Americans will die.

Donald Trump says that the United States should use waterboarding and other harsh interrogation techniques when questioning terror suspects in order to force information out of them and save lives.

Trump is absolutely correct.

Ted Cruz says that the United States should increase surveillance in Muslim neighborhoods and locations where there is a higher incidence of radical Islamic terrorism.

Cruz is absolutely correct.

But Trump and Cruz are basically two voices crying out in the political wilderness. The rest of the presidential field, and the vast majority of politicians at all levels, would rather coddle Islam, downplay the threat, and blame it on just a handful of bad guys.

You know: just like feeding the crocodile.

Spineless politicians on both sides of the aisle just don’t get it. America is at war. The enemy has already made its intentions clear about its desire to kill us and destroy our culture.

And we’re helping them do it.

The crocodile lurks in the swamp, eyes us hungrily, and licks its chops.

And we decide to feed it.

We’re feeding the crocodile.

Compassion kills and appeasement fails.

Just ask Winston Churchill.
