Yesterday I shared a quote by Sir Winston Churchill:
â€œAn appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last!â€
~Sir Winston Churchill~
American is becoming the world’s biggest appeaser.Â Heaven forbid that we do or say anything that might possibly make anyone feel uncomfortable or offended.Â In our striving to make everyone happy, we aren’t making anyone happy – even ourselves.
It makes me sad – and scared – to see and hear people claiming that anyone who believes that people should follow estabished laws for entering our country are racist, bigoted, and anti-immigration.Â Placing negative labels on peopleÂ is the best way to get attention away from the real issues.Â No one wants to be considered racist and bigoted and against the very thing upon which our country was built.Â
Even in church I hear people saying “But the illegal immigrants are just poor people coming here for a better life.Â How can we deny them the opportunity to make a better life for themselves and their families?”Â If so, then they should stop crossing the border in the dead of the night and getting ID’s, social security numbers and drivers licenses illegally.Â Stop breaking in line – go back and do it legally.Â We want you here if you can have the strength of character and perseverance to do it the right way.Â
To borrow from a country song, “You’ve got to stand for something, or you’ll fall for anything.”Â We’re falling for just about everything that people are willing to shout loud enough about andÂ make a big enough scene about .Â We don’t want to feel “uncomfortable”Â or be accused of not being “tolerant.”Â Â We’ve reached the point of not being willing to take a stand for anything.Â Everything is all right.Â We’ll tolerate any and everything.Â We don’t have the courage to say that some things are simply WRONG.Â
Our country was founded by CHRISTIANS who came here for freedom of religion.Â Recognizing our Christian heritage and celebrating it does NOT deny non-Christians their religion.Â Rather, denying “In God We Trust” on our currency, in our history booksÂ and in our pledge is denying our own history.
Our country is directly threatened by radical Islam.Â Fighting Islamic terrorists is honorable and necessary.Â Mistakes made by .001% of our soldiers does not negate the wonderfully courageous efforts of 99.999% of them.Â Spouting anti-war rhetoric does not negate the fact that our soldiers are dying every day to give U.S. citizens the right to protest and criticize their country and president.
Our country was founded on freedom based on law.Â When we reward lawbreakers with privileges not given to law-abiders, we undermine the foundation of our country.
President Bush was fairly elected in both 2000 and 2004.Â Certainly 2000 was close, but the law was followed and he was correctly chosen as our president.Â To not give him the respect due the leader of the greatest nation on earthÂ is unpatriotic and childish.Â You can disagree with people without disrespecting them.Â President Bush deserves our respect based simply on the fact that he is our duly elected president.Â Period.
So we will appease the illegal immigrants, we will appease the radical Muslims, we will appease the left-wing anti-war protestors, we will appease the history revisionists, and eventually we WILL be eaten by the crocodile of appeasement.Â That crocodile is already well into his meal of USA a la Appeasement.Â
