A goodie courtesy of Rhymes with Right: George Orwell on Pacifism.

Pacifism is objectively pro-Fascist. This is elementary common sense. If you hamper the war effort of one side you automatically help that of the other.

And I'm the one that gets called a fascist.

Oh, and while I'm at it, it would appear that Charlie Rangel is looking to reinstate the draft. A fine tribute to the late Milton Friedman, who worked to end it. Don Surber commented thus:

Thus, liberals show their true colors: You belong to the government, not the other way around.

Ah, it's a great country.

We really need to either change out GOP leadership once and for all with some strong conservatives, or leave the Republican Party all together.

Rangel is a hoot. I can't believe he is still in elected office.

The Republicans need to raise up a few Goldwaters and Reagans, and they need to clean house big time.

Rangel represents a district that has been carefully gerrymandered so that he can't lose. Nice work if you can get it. Of course, we used to say the same thing about Cynthia McKinney.

Every once in a while you get slapped in the face with the sheer truth of the statement "ignorance is bliss."

Reminds me of Lincoln's saying: you can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can usually fool enough people to get elected. I have to wonder what people were thinking when they put these knuckleheads into office.

If I recall correctly, Friedman's reply to critics was that it was better to have an army of mercenaries than to bring back slavery.

The irony of this is that during the 2004 Presidential campaign, some Democrats were spreading the word among college students that George Bush would bring back the draft. And then the whacko left was absolutely certain that Evil George had already gotten secret legislation passed. It was so secret that nobody could actually find it, and even Congress was unaware that they had passed it. I wonder how those same people are spinning this turn of events.

That was what Friedman said. But we all know that he's one of those right wing nut jobs.

The Left is desperate to try and prove that all Republicans are evil fascists, but when the rubber meets the road you find that's the sole province of the Left.
