Do you remember the scandal when Barak Obama removed the sculpture of Winston Churchill from the Oval Office and sent it back to England? It was a slap in the face to the British but it was even more a statement about Progressive’s attitudes toward a man who saw the evil in Communism while FDR was calling Stalin “Uncle Joe”. For the left it was a win/win.
I came across another reason while reading Winston Churchill.
“Indeed it is evident that Christianity, however degraded and distorted by cruelty and intolerance, must always exert a modifying influence on men's passions, and protect them from the more violent forms of fanatical fever, as we are protected from smallpox by vaccination. But the Mahommedan religion increases, instead of lessening, the fury of intolerance. It was originally propagated by the sword, and ever since, its votaries have been subject, above the people of all other creeds, to this form of madness. In a moment the fruits of patient toil, the prospects of material prosperity, the fear of death itself, are flung aside. The more emotional Pathans are powerless to resist.” Kindle location 459-464Churchill was in the India/Afghan area of Asia at the time. He was acting as a reporter in the same area that our troops are operating now. He faced the reality of the situation on a day by day basis.
Doesn’t it sound like what you are seeing and what the media are ignoring? Keep in mind that the left keeps calling it a religion of peace in spite of the evidence. Keep in mind that Obama did everything he could to weaken America and the West and strengthen the power of Islam. Is it any wonder that he, and they, don’t like Winston Churchill?
