Comment on the Belmont Club:
"Outrageous Fortune"

you can lose a real limb

You can lose your head. I have seen the Danny Pearl vid.

The problem with the conflict we are all engaged in is that it is asymmetric in its costs. If we withdraw and concede the field we do not get peace but death. In victory the extreme Left will not raise marginal tax rates by 10% and build huge ugly public housing projects. That was your father's age of liberalism. These people are allied to the jihadis because they both seek to achieve their utopian goals through blood. These are people who read Nineteen Eighty-Four in High School and said to themselves, "That's a plan." They have arrogated to themselves the authority of the God of Isaiah who said (KJV 29:15)
Woe unto them that seek deep to hide their counsel from the LORD, and their works are in the dark, and they say, Who seeth us? and who knoweth us?
Conservatives seek to conserve not to conquer, but those who attack us will accept no peace and offer no quarter. To surrender means immediate death or future betrayal. On the Hamas ship they chanted the war cry "Khaybar Khaybar ya Yahūd, jaysh Muḥammad saya‘ūd." The Jews of Khaybar surrendered to Muhammed and 13 years later Umar revoked the peace treaty and expelled them. Two years earlier the Banu Qurayza Jews of Yathrib surrendered and were massacred by the hundreds. Given the technology available this was done as systematically as any genocide of the 20th century.

When Youtube or PayPal or Google acquiesce to the thuggery of those who seek to dominate and destroy the United States and all of Western Civilization they are not being even handed and protecting the innocent from hate. They are supporting those who champion hate and creating more victims. They do Evil.

Most of the time I assume that Silence=Consent and people not only agree with me but that I exhaust the point so thoroughly that no direct reply to my windy posts is needed. Others frequently make similar points later without attribution. Of course I could just be kidding myself.
