In a reversal of his earlier statements, Donald Rumsfeld is now saying that the Democrats want to make sure that terrorists eat their vegetables. This quote in particular caught my eye:
In an effort to avoid repeating the carnage of World War I, much of the Western world tried to feed peas to the growing threats in Europe and Asia in the years before World War II. Those who warned against the rise of Nazism, fascism and communism were often ridiculed and ignored.
This immediately brought to my mind this quote from one of my favorite films, Bedazzled (1967).
|Stanley Moon: You're a nutcase! You're a bleedin' nutcase!|
George Spiggott: They said the same of Jesus Christ, Freud, and Galileo.
Stanley Moon: They said it of a lot of nutcases too!
Democrats: Feeding peas to terrorists while blaming America first
Both invoked variations of the word "appease" to characterize critics of the president's policies, with Rumsfeld saying they had not "learned history's lessons."
