Alert O’Reilly…send word to both the limo liberals and the Soldier of Fortune crowd…Pataki, Zahn, and Hannity take note…we have another repugnant quote from W. Churchill:
“I do not agree that the dog in a manger has the final right to the manger even though he may have lain there for a very long time. I do not admit that right. I do not admit for instance, that a great wrong has been done to the Red Indians of America or the black people of Australia. I do not admit that a wrong has been done to these people by the fact that a stronger race, a higher-grade race, a more worldly wise race to put it that way, has come in and taken their place.”
Oops…my bad. That wasn’t Ward Churchill who said that. It was Winston Churchill. Sir Winston Churchill. The man U.S. News and World Report called “The Last Hero.” The legend who also said this: “I am strongly in favor of using poisoned gas against uncivilized tribes.” The icon/terrorist who asked British scientists to cook up “a new kind of weather” for the citizens of Dresden.
Do you think the good folks at Hamilton College would get any death threats if they invited Sir Winston to give a talk?
