Then what do we rally around to defend who we are?

Reader comment on item: The End of Treason

With all due respect Mr. Pipes, there are fifth columnists in the "West" who frankly are ashamed of what makes Western culture as robust as it is. Why? Because they have the stamina of an easily winded person when it comes to doing the right thing over and over again.

After all, there are rewards for doing the right thing over and over again, and these rewards are compensation for doing the right thing, which far more often than not is the more difficult of two choices.

Lest I be reproached by saying that Sparta was a better influence than Athens when it comes to Greek culture, (the opposite is usually the case), let me say this: those who have the most to lose are those who fight the hardest to retain the work of their hands.

What does this have to do with treason? Simply put, those who are most active of aiding the forces of Arab Aryanism have gotten themselves in serious trouble. For we would be casting aspersions on what makes Western Culture as robust as it is by letting such activities slide, and not hold those people accountable for their actions.
