Appeasers Can Be Patriots

Thursday, August 31, 2006  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

With the decision of the Adminstration to bluntly outline to the public the dangers of the appeasement policies proposed by the Democrats, expect some reactions from Democrats along the lines of the famous response: “It’s not my dog.  He didn’t bite you.  And besides, you kicked him first.”

NationalReview’s Katherine Jean Lopez has a bit of the Democratic response here, with Democratic Senator Jack Reed arguing it isn’t fascism we are fighting:

QUESTION: Senator, I was wondering if you could respond to the earlier note of the use of the phrase Islamo-fascism, if you think that is an accurate term for what’s going on.

REED: Well, I’ll just say I don’t think it’s particularly accurate. You know, I think if one carefully has looked at the history of fascism, which was a political movement in western Europe that actually, in the two principal cases, came to power through democratic elections
