Screw You Donald

According to Dumbass Rumsfeld I am a Nazi appeaser. May please join Steve Bates over at Yellow Doggerel Democrat in wishing him a pleasant stay in hell. I dissent because it is my duty and a growing majority of Americans are joining me and the rest of the progressive left.

Fuck you Rummy and the horse you rode in on.

Thanks Steve for the link to the Seattle Times.

SALT LAKE CITY — Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld compared critics of the Bush administration to those who sought to appease the Nazis before World War II, warning Tuesday that the United States is confronting "a new type of fascism."

Rumsfeld, speaking before the American Legion convention, delivered some of his most explicit and extended attacks yet on the administration's critics, provoking criticism from furious Democrats who accused him of "campaigning on fear."

By comparing U.S. foreign policy with World War II and the Cold War, Rumsfeld sought to portray skeptics of Bush's foreign policy as being on the wrong side of history. Rumsfeld again ridiculed U.S. officials who, before World War II, wished to negotiate with Adolf Hitler.

"I recount that history because, once again, we face similar challenges in efforts to confront the rising threat of a new type of fascism," Rumsfeld said. "But some seem not to have learned history's lessons."

He continued: "Can we truly afford to believe that, somehow or some way, vicious extremists could be appeased?"

His use of the word "appease" was particularly notable, clearly tying administration critics to the failed efforts of the pre-Churchill British government to mollify Hitler.

BTW Steve has moved the Yellow Doggerel Democrat to a new location and here it is. Change your bookmarks.
