The Cowards Among Us
Cartoon by Michael Ramirez (click to enlarge);
The cowardice, on the other hand, is courtesy of the US Democrat Party: including its CEO and "Chief Puppeteer," George Soros; its "spiritual advisor," Noam Chomsky; and its sycophantic mouthpieces such as Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Howard Dean... among many others: all of whom I believe will go down in history as the catalyst for the catastrophe. They will be viewed as people who could have stood firm and stopped the deluge that only the most obtuse did not see coming--but instead chose political expediency, myopia, an arcane and evil economic philosophy and presided over: 1) the gradual demise of the greatest country the World had ever known--before or since; 2) the preventable loss of innocent lives of millions of American and European citizens; and 3) the advent of a new Dark Age such as the world has never seen, to include 9th century murder and bloodlust on a grand scale, economic ruin, and anarchy in the streets. This is an apocalyptic view, but I truly believe in the depths of my soul that these are the wages of surrender to this enemy--and I will take this belief to my grave.
If the killers of Western Civilization are allowed by an asleep at the wheel American public to succeed, they will be in good company when future generations look back on their treachery: Names like Reid, Clinton, Pelosi, Dean, and Soros will be added to a longer list: Nero, Neville Chamberlain, Marshal Pétain, Jimmy Carter (Iran), Joseph Kennedy, Anthony Eden, Judas Iscariot, Brutus, Cassius, Benedict Arnold, Quisling, The Rosenbergs, Alger Hiss, Philip Hansen, Aldrich Ames, George McClellan ...
There are many famous quotes about Cowards in history: see if these remind you of anyone in Washington D.C.
Thou dost shame That bloody spoil. Thou slave, thou wretch, thou coward! Thou little valiant, great in villainy! Thou ever strong upon the stronger side! Thou fortune's champion, that dost never fight But when her humorous ladyship is by To teach thee safety!
--Shakespeare, The Life and Death of King John
Hatred is the coward's revenge for being intimidated.
--George Bernard Shaw
Cowards can never be moral.
Great occasions do not make heroes or cowards; they simply unveil them to the eyes of men.
Cowards do not count in battle; they are there, but not in it.
