Defense secretary tells veterans that U.S. faces a ‘new type of fascism’....And the new appeasers take umbrage.
How deep is the irrationality of the Left on the subject of the global terrorist threat? How motivated would they be to lash out at the bearer of any meritorious criticism of their 'position'?
It is very telling, that an article that identifies so directly the similarities between today's so-called war 'dissenters' and the 1930's appeasers whose primary goals is/was inaction against the Fascism of their respective eras, garners a rating of two stars out of a possible five stars with 1828 votes as of 8:04pm Central. There has to be at least one fat-fingered idiot rating the story 1/2 star repeatedly from as many IP addresses as possible to skew the overall rating of the article that low.
Instead, why don't they spend some time answering the SecDef's question:
“Can we truly afford to believe somehow, some way, vicious extremists can be appeased?”I'd love to know their answer.
