Oooooo the right wing has a new word, “appeaser”. Seems anyone who talks to a country we have difficulties with is an appeaser. Son of Neville Chamberlain, who tried to prevent WWII by appeasing Hitler. Seems they remember what Teddy Roosevelt said a little differently than I’d heard: Speak loud and if they don’t listen, thwack ‘em with a big stick.
Seems Hamas said–quite understandably–that they hoped Obama was elected because it was the only way they could see they might get a fair shake. We’re talking about the people who got kicked off their own land 60 years ago. Happy Birthday Israel. And if you don’t think our country’s policies have been pro-Israel, just read Georgie’s address to the Kenesset. But anyway, both McCain and Georgie took the concept that Obama might actually TALK to Hamas and have turned him into an “appeaser.” Georgie practically accused him of starting the Holocaust single-handedly.
It’s gotten so bad that Christ Matthews has briefly found his brain again and gotten thoroughly disgusted at the way the right wing is handling things Chris Matthews Eviscerates Right-Wing Host Kevin James Over Obama “Appeasement” Claims. Seems this radio “host” is all for calling Obama an appeaser but really has no concept what an appeaser is, except something you don’t want to be. Chris tries to get James to say exactly what it was that Neville Chamberlain DID that made him such a terrible person and the guy literally COULDN’T ANSWER except to repeat and repeat and repeat that he appeased Hitler. See the video on the Huffington Post for a good laugh.
Now I’ve got a word for the Right Wing. Any of you remember back in the school yard? If you had a problem with another kid, you worked it out. Sometimes you worked it on with your fists, but more often you talked through it. But there was one kid you couldn’t work it out with. The Bully. He was the one who never worked it out–it was always his way or get creamed. Oh, you don’t remember? Hmmm, that means you were probably the one who nobody could work it out with–or one of his toadies.
Think it over.
