Dear Jennifer

I don't so much blame Moslems for being led astray by their leaders. They truly are victims. They are brought into this world under totalitarianism, intellectual and spiritual bondage, and are so conditioned to not think for themselves that even when they are offered democratic freedoms they allow those with in that community to work feverishly to ensure and to maintain Islamic totalitarianism.

The people I hold responsible are those knee-jerk uber-liberals who willingly give away the principles of a free society for the imposition of a totalitarian religious, economic, social and judicial suppression of those principles. Naturally, it's all done for the good of all and further, goes to prove their opus, 'that bending over backwards is morally superior, and the politically correct way'. Rather than standing up to any assault upon the principles of a free and democratic society they demand in the name of political correctness to put the harness of servitude on their society themselves. '..hoping to be eaten last' misdirects the true intent. Which in my view is a type of cannibalism where the various 'isms' who wish to impose themselves on our society, consume that which gave them the freedom of expression, from within.

Sir Winston knew about appeasement. He understood back in the thirties that giving ground to any ideology whose sole purpose is to strangle social freedom and to dictate the religious, social, economic and judicial course of that society is evil. And counter to the sacrifices of generations who died to ensure those principles of freedom.

Another Winnie asked a very pertinent question in regards to todays appeasers.

Did you ever stop to think, and forget to start again?
