Why learn the lessons of history when you can pander to a constituency that refuses to recognize the threat of radical Islamists? The Islamist savages murdered 129 and wounded over 350 innocents in Paris Friday, but during the Democratic presidential debate on Saturday in Iowa, Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, and Martin O’Malley insisted they would continue their firm commitments to appeasing and/or ignoring Islamist murderers:
… 1) Hillary Clinton would refuse to apply the phrase “radical Islam” to ISIS; 2) Bernie Sanders would maintain that climate change is a greater threat to national security than ISIS or Islamic terrorism in general; and 3) Martin O’Malley, with Clinton’s agreement, would insist that the U.S. stick to a proposal to admit 65,000 Syria refugees into the country. …
History shows us the terrible consequences of appeasing terror. Just one example out of many is sufficient. Have people already forgotten what happened to this world — how many millions of innocents were killed — after throngs of cowards catered to Hitler and Stalin in the mid 20th century?
