Calling a spade a spade

After the battle of Shiloh, then the bloodiest battle of the young Civil War, Lincoln was advised to get rid of Ulysses Grant because of the butcher's bill the young general had racked up in that engagement. The ever-perceptive Lincoln thought otherwise. "I can't spare this man," he said. "He fights."

I'm feeling a little towards Pamela Geller right now the way Lincoln felt towards Grant. We can't spare this lady. She fights, when so many others turn tail and retreat in the face of PC aggression from the SJW crowd and murderous violence from Muslim fundamentalists.
Drawing Muhammad offends Islamic jihadists? So does being Jewish. How much accommodation of any kind should we give to murderous savagery? To kowtow to violent intimidation will only encourage more of it.

This is a war.

Now, after the Charlie Hebdo attack, and after the Garland attack, what are we going to do? Are we going to surrender to these monsters?

The attack in Garland showed that everything my colleagues and I have been warning about regarding the threat of jihad, and the ways in which it threatens our liberties, is true. ...

You can try to avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality. The shootings in Garland, Paris, and Copenhagen targeting defenders of free speech, and the raging jihad across the Middle East, Africa, and Europe, are the disastrous consequences of avoiding reality. ...

To learn who rules over you, simply find out whom you cannot criticize. If the international media had run the Danish cartoons back in 2005, none of this could have happened. The jihadis wouldn’t have been able to kill everyone. But by self-censoring, the media gave the jihadis the power they have today.

We must take back our freedom.
Amen to that, Ma'am. Amen to that.
