The script given them by British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain and the politicians and newspaper editors who co-starred with him in a play they did not have to write down, because they acted it out for us on the world stage:
How to Bring on a World War by "Appeasing" Those Who Do Not Want Peace.
Do you doubt me? Our mediacrats and professoriate bent over backward after 9/11 to make sure not to sound patriotic, not to label Islamists as our enemies.
They are eager to blame terrorist acts on anyone but Islamists.
When a homegrown terrorist blows up a government building or assassinates a government official, they blame conservative American talk radio shows on no evidence whatsoever.
But the assassination of an American ambassador in Libya and the storming of our embassy in Egypt (a supposed ally) are blamed on a stupid movie. Our government does not defend our principles of freedom of speech; instead, our government apologizes for offending Muslim sensibilities.
I'm still waiting for the apology from these same people for their specious accusations against conservative talk radio. But no, they would still very much like to ban conservative talk radio.
In fact, Barack Obama didn't defend American values because he doesn't value them. He has already expressed his envy of the Chinese government's ability to make decisions without consulting their people. He has already promised to give Putin a free hand, once he gets reelected.
He joins the professoriate and the mediocracy in their contempt for dissenting views, punishing anyone who says things he doesn't like. He began his term by evading the Constitution by replacing his cabinet with "czars" who do not have to be confirmed by the Senate, where Republicans might question their shoddy credentials.
In this, too, Obama, the professoriate, and the mediacrats resemble Neville Chamberlain, the pacifist politicians, and the newspaper owners and editors during the run-up to World War II, when they constantly papered over or simply lied about Hitler's actions and the danger he posed.
They keep believing, as Chamberlain's companions kept believing, that negotiations only fail because we haven't yet given enough, even though we have already given more than was safe or even decent.
Even now just as Chamberlain bullied Czechoslovakia's leaders in 1938 into giving up their defensible borders and then kept no promises to protect them as their nation was erased and their people enslaved or murdered so also Obama snubs the leader of Israel, our only reliable ally in the entire Middle East, so that they won't defend themselves.
Here is what happens when you pursue the Neville Chamberlain course that Barack Obama is so carefully, systematically pursuing:
1. Negotiations lead to nothing. The enemy keeps no promises and can't believe you keep believing them.
2. Yet as long as we keep giving them what they want, or postponing taking any action as long as they hold out the promise of negotiations, they are happy to accept the extra time in which to build up their ability to attack and destroy us.
3. Obama inherited two battle zones in the war against radical Islamism: Iraq and Afghanistan. He has declared both wars over and is withdrawing our troops.
This is the equivalent of France and Britain allowing Hitler's Nazis to occupy the demilitarized Rhineland and then to force anschluss with Austria. The people of Afghanistan hated the Taliban and rejoiced when their murderous, repressive regime fell.
4. Just as they hated Saddam, and far more than they hated Mubarak, anyone who has lived under Islamist rule hates the Islamists and longs for their destruction.
But Barack Obama has shown them (like Carter, Reagan and Clinton before him) that there will be no effective resistance to the extension of Islamist rule.
Briefly, two presidents named Bush stood against Muslim aggressors, and a remarkable thing happened: The Muslims who don't want to be ruled by these mad dictators fell in behind American leadership and bet their lives and their futures on our victory.
And we won. Even if the occupation did not go brilliantly at first, we won, and the result was a general backing down of support for Islamists all over the Middle East.
But with Barack Obama's decision to lose these wars, despite the fact that we won them, and continued to prevail whenever and wherever adequate support was given, our friends and allies in the Middle East have no choice but to make whatever accommodation they can with whoever looks like the eventual winner.
Hint: As long as Barack Obama or any other member of the professoriate or mediocracy is president, the US is not going to look like the eventual winner.
When Barack Obama snubs Netanyahu of Israel, he no doubt imagines he is building friendship with Muslims.
But he is not. He is earning the contempt of the Islamists whose war against the West he thus encourages, and he is showing those who would be our friends that American friendship means nothing.
After all, look how Obama treats Israel, our staunchest ally! If that's how America treats its friends, it's time to join up with America's enemies.
There are still many millions of Americans who approve of Obama's decision to lose the war, just as many millions of Britons rejoiced when Chamberlain came home from Munich with a worthless treaty and promised "peace for our time."
These are the Americans who think that because Osama bin Laden is dead, we already won the only war we ever meant to fight.
But we don't get to decide when the war is over they do. And President Obama's actions have proven again and again that Osama bin Laden was absolutely right in his assessment of America.
We will not keep fighting. We win and then we quit; but the Islamists go on. All you have to do, Bin Laden taught, was keep on attacking, and eventually the Islamists will bring down the whole Western civilization.
Then the Islamists can replace it with their own ugly, hate-filled, oppressive, racist, misogynist, fanatic, murderous "law." Of course it will quickly become corrupt and the leaders will not be true to the faith we do have the history of centuries of fanatical Muslim governments to show us that.
But it will be no help to the people who groan under the heel of the Islamist conquerors.
Here's where we come to the crux of the matter. The professoriate and mediocracy think it's absurd for me to talk about these terrorists actually bringing down Western Civilization.
Well, in a way it would almost be redundant the only people who hate Western Civilization more than the Islamists are the professoriate and mediocracy here and in Europe, and they already do all they can to destroy all the values that made Western Civilization the envy of the world.
And never mind that their pat-on-the-head devotion to the "oppressed" Muslims will not protect them as with Hitler, wherever Islamists take over the first people they kill or imprison are, unsurprisingly, the professoriate and the mediacrats....continued on page 3
