Blood, Toil, Tears, and Sweat

So I just listened to Morning Joe debate whether to give Unidicted Co-conspirator Bottomless Pinocchio a “Symbolic” victory on his Vanity Project Penis Wall O’ Racism.

I imagine you can already tell my position on this revolting development, but just in case you can’t- I’m against it.

Bob Woodward, who has journeyed from crusading journalist to Access Suck Up Hack and Toady (Bernstein will hardly talk to him anymore), was vehement in his defense of “Centrist Compromise”.

And where does that leave us Bob? In a Banana Republic Dictatorship where an idea only supported by 25% of the most racist people (plenty of other racism to go around). It is negotiating with a Terrorist, a Gangster who is obviously guilty of Treason!

Where you gonna be Bob when Mueller proves Unidicted Co-conspirator Bottomless Pinocchio is nothing but an Agent of the Russian Government, a spy? Well we can’t indict him and throw him in jail because he has the support of the most deranged Minority of a Minority Party?

Thank goodness it’s not 1940 Bob because instead of-

I have, myself, full confidence that if all do their duty, if nothing is neglected, and if the best arrangements are made, as they are being made, we shall prove ourselves once again able to defend our Island home, to ride out the storm of war, and to outlive the menace of tyranny, if necessary for years, if necessary alone.

At any rate, that is what we are going to try to do. That is the resolve of His Majesty’s Government-every man of them. That is the will of Parliament and the nation.

The British Empire and the French Republic, linked together in their cause and in their need, will defend to the death their native soil, aiding each other like good comrades to the utmost of their strength.

Even though large tracts of Europe and many old and famous States have fallen or may fall into the grip of the Gestapo and all the odious apparatus of Nazi rule, we shall not flag or fail.

We shall go on to the end, we shall fight in France,

We shall fight on the seas and oceans,

We shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our Island, whatever the cost may be,

We shall fight on the beaches.

We shall fight on the landing grounds.

We shall fight in the fields and in the streets.

We shall fight in the hills.

We shall never surrender, and even if, which I do not for a moment believe, this Island or a large part of it were subjugated and starving, then our Empire beyond the seas, armed and guarded by the British Fleet, would carry on the struggle, until, in God’s good time, the New World, with all its power and might, steps forth to the rescue and the liberation of the old.

You are counseling this-

We, the German Führer and Chancellor, and the British Prime Minister, have had a further meeting today and are agreed in recognizing that the question of Anglo-German relations is of the first importance for our two countries and for Europe.

We regard the agreement signed last night and the Anglo-German Naval Agreement as symbolic of the desire of our two peoples never to go to war with one another again. We are resolved that the method of consultation shall be the method adopted to deal with any other questions that may concern our two countries, and we are determined to continue our efforts to remove possible sources of difference, and thus to contribute to assure the peace of Europe.

My good friends, for the second time in our history, a British Prime Minister has returned from Germany bringing peace with honour.

I believe it is peace for our time…

Go home and get a nice quiet sleep.

It is hard for me to express my utter contempt (at least in terms fitting for publication, I’m much more forthcoming in private) for the Bob Woodward, Versailles Village D.C. consensus that represents a “Centrism” of the .01% who merely wish to be left alone with the results of their 40+ years of thievery and don’t want to be bothered with judgemental expressions of any but their most obsequious slaves.

I am aware, that many object to the severity of my language; but is there not cause for severity? I will be as harsh as truth, and as uncompromising as justice. On this subject, I do not wish to think, or speak, or write, with moderation. No! no! Tell a man whose house is on fire, to give a moderate alarm; tell him to moderately rescue his wife from the hand of the ravisher; tell the mother to gradually extricate her babe from the fire into which it has fallen; — but urge me not to use moderation in a cause like the present. I am in earnest — I will not equivocate — I will not excuse — I will not retreat a single inch — AND I WILL BE HEARD. The apathy of the people is enough to make every statue leap from its pedestal, and to hasten the resurrection of the dead.

NO WALL! Not a dime you racist bastards! I want you to LOSE, and more than that I want you to be SEEN TO LOSE, as a lesson for future generations that might be tempted to adopt Facist, Racist policies like yours.

Colonel Manton, I want you to tell your men to run away.


Those words. “Run away.” I want you to be famous for those exact words. I want people to call you Colonel Runaway. I want children laughing outside your door, because they’ve found the house of Colonel Runaway. And when people come to you and ask if trying to get to me through the people I love!
Is in any way a good idea, I want you to tell them your name. Look, I’m angry, that’s new. I’m really not sure what’s going to happen now.

The anger of a good man is not a problem. Good men have too many rules.

Good men don’t need rules. Today is not the day to find out why I have so many.

That was the Doctor. He’s much more diplomatic than I am. Churchill said this-

In this crisis I think I may be pardoned if I do not address the House at any length today, and I hope that any of my friends and colleagues or former colleagues who are affected by the political reconstruction will make all allowances for any lack of ceremony with which it has been necessary to act.

I say to the House as I said to ministers who have joined this government, I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears, and sweat. We have before us an ordeal of the most grievous kind. We have before us many, many months of struggle and suffering.

You ask, what is our policy? I say it is to wage war by land, sea, and air. War with all our might and with all the strength God has given us, and to wage war against a monstrous tyranny never surpassed in the dark and lamentable catalogue of human crime. That is our policy.

You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word. It is victory. Victory at all costs – Victory in spite of all terrors – Victory, however long and hard the road may be, for without victory there is no survival.

Let that be realized. No survival for the British Empire, no survival for all that the British Empire has stood for, no survival for the urge, the impulse of the ages, that mankind shall move forward toward his goal.

I take up my task in buoyancy and hope. I feel sure that our cause will not be suffered to fail among men. I feel entitled at this juncture, at this time, to claim the aid of all and to say, “Come then, let us go forward together with our united strength.”

He’s also much more diplomatic than I am.

The Republican Party and Republicanism must be crushed like a bug. Torn out root and branch. No compromise of weakness is acceptable. Squeemish Republicans with a ‘(D)’ squishes and the minuscule 4% who identify as ‘Socially Liberal but Economically Conservative’ may avert their eyes and make meally mouthed platitudes while the work is done, but done it must be.

La terreur n’est autre chose que la justice prompte, sévère, inflexible; elle est donc une émanation de la vertu ; elle est moins un principe particulier, qu’une conséquence du principe général de la démocratie, appliqué aux plus pressants besoins de la patrie.

Not the ground I would have chosen but strong none the less. If you can’t say stripping babies from their mother’s arms and throwing them into Concentration Camps to die is unacceptable what will you do?

Wait until they come for you?

Sie kamen, um die Kommunisten, und ich nicht sprechen, weil ich kein Kommunist war.

Dann kamen sie für die Gewerkschafter, Und ich sprach nicht heraus – weil ich nicht ein Gewerkschafter war.

Dann kamen sie für die Juden, und ich wollte nicht sprechen heraus – weil ich nicht ein Jude war.

Dann kamen für mich – und niemand mehr da ist, für Mich zu sprechen.

What did Lincoln say?

A house divided against itself can not stand. I believe this government can not endure, permanently, half slave and half free. I do not expect the Union to be dissolved — I do not expect the house to fall — but I do expect it will cease to be divided. It will become all one thing or all the other. Either the opponents of slavery will arrest the further spread of it, and place it where the public mind shall rest in the belief that it is in the course of ultimate extinction; or its advocates will push it forward, till it shall become lawful in all the States, old as well as new — North as well as South.

Time has come to chose. Slave or Free?
