America: Some Advise from Winston Churchill
Thanks to Patriot an Navy Chief Bosun’s Mate Veteran Lee Hornack for sharing these Winston Churchill quotes with us!
I have encountered several of these in the past and find they are certainly packed with wisdom.

“Democracy Is The Worst”

“Democracy Is The Worst”

I once read of a quotation attributed to Winston Churchill, a man who I admire beyond words. I cannot provide the reference for this quote, but it sure sounds like something that he would say!

The older I get, the clearer this becomes:

“Democracy is the worst goverment….except all the rest.”

Churchill On Islam

Churchill On Islam

I want to thank Ed for the following Winston Churchill quote. It is much shorter than my last quote on Islamic Stealth Jihad….so it is an improvement! Also, it goes to the center of it all. The specter of an Islamic world is appalling for all who look objectively. For the politically correct, open border, one-world government bunch Churchill’s quote is profane heresy. In my view, it is good to stand “guilty as charged” with the likes of Winston Churchill.

Ed, I hope you will check into my blog from time to time and sound off whenever you wish. Agreement with me, and further discussion or amplification of my positions is happily accepted. On the other hand, differing points of view are happily provoked and enjoyed. Bring em’ on!

Thanks for that !! Too bad more people weren’t aware of Robert Spencer … and Churchill. Hope you don’t mind, but another quote of Churchill fits here very well;

“How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either as a child, a wife, or a concubine, must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men.

Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities — but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilisation of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilisation of ancient Rome.”

– Winston Churchill – The River War, volume II pp.
