He posted this on Facebook today:
“Rise up, warriors, take your stand at one another’s sides, our feet set wide and rooted like oaks in the ground.”
— Tyrtaeus of Sparta
More about Tryrtaeus here. He did not present ideals that involved knowing when to fold ’em. One of his (well, his if he was a real person) big themes also seems a little off here: Support of the state (Spartan) authorities in their struggles.
This, also posted on Facebook, also suggests the fight, such as it is, will go on:
“This is the lesson: never give in, never give in, never, never, never, never—in nothing, great or small, large or petty—never give in except to convictions of honor and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.”
— Winston Churchill
Whoever is doing the Facebook feed also posted this:
“…Let us use this court decision to motivate us, not to sadden us. Today we must begin an important transition, to return our party to its conservative principles. It was the Party of Reagan. It can be again.
This party belongs to us and it’s time to reclaim it for true conservatives.
Let our battle cry be: WE ARE ALL McDANIEL REPUBLICANS NOW!”
I don’t see how he can post this stuff and not appeal. Other thoughts?
