The New World has its Chamberlain; what we need desperately is our Churchill

At least Neville Chamberlain groveled to the devil before London was blitzed.

Much like the British prime minister's appeasement of Hitler with the Munich pact of 1938 -- which gave the monster a portion of Czechoslovakia -- today we have our nation's "leader" apologizing to, appeasing, and continuing the payment of jizya to Islam.

Here is Churchill's blunt condemnation of Chamberlain's malfeasance:
"I will begin by saying what everybody would like to ignore or forget but which must nevertheless be stated, namely that we have sustained a total and unmitigated defeat . . . instead of snatching the victuals from the table, [Hitler] has been content to have them served to him course by course."
Our Chamberlain bows to Saudi tyrants, apologizes to the ideology of our demise, and seeks to feed Israel to the dogs.

The result of Chamberlain's policies, major German advances and the retreat of more than 300,000 of its soldiers from France, England stood alone and outgunned, with Churchill in the lead.

From here:
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.
The "New World" has its Chamberlain; what we need desperately is our Churchill.
