I mentioned the famous Walt Kelly phrase (“we have met the enemy and it is us”) the other day in connection with a post I did about Sweden’s national suicide pact. My point then was that, if a culture is determined to self-destruct, that suicidal urge becomes the most powerful weapon possible in its enemies hands. When it comes to Europe, the Islamists don’t need airplanes and bombs — they just need to keep the Europeans doing what they’re doing. If you stop having children and you hate yourself, your cultural demise is pretty much a foregone conclusion.
At Scott’s Conservative News and Commentary, we get a reminder that some people are more active in the cultural and national self-destruct mode than others. Get a load of this incredible picture of Code Pink protestors. Don’t just glanced at it. Really read the sign. You then have two choices: crawl into a corner and cry or fight back in this war of ideas. [UPDATE: I have it on good authority that the photo is a fake. While Code Pink has real signs with similar sentiments, someone mocked this one up to make a point. I think this post still stands, though, even if the photo isn’t real. What do you think?]
Incidentally, you can read a bit more background information Code Pink’s latest initiative at Butch Morgan’s site.
