Quote of the Day

“WHAT IF THEY GAVE A WAR AND NO ONE CAME?”
For many many years we have heard the question from the anti-war left, supposedly by Carl Sandburg

 

I came across the original – and it’s not what you might think.

Stell Dir vor, es kommt Krieg und keiner geht hin,
dann kommt der Krieg zu euch!
Wer zu Hause bleibt, wenn der Kampf beginnt,
und lässt andere kämpfen für seine Sache,
der muss sich vorsehen:
Denn wer den Kampf nicht geteilt hat,
der wird teilen die Niederlage.
Nicht einmal Kampf vermeidet,
wer den Kampf vermeiden will:
Denn es wird kämpfen für die Sache des Feinds,
wer für seine eigene Sache nicht gekämpft hat.

Imagine, war comes and no one goes out to fight,
Then the war comes to you!
Those who stay at home when the fight begins,
And let others fight for his cause,
For whoever has not shared the struggle,
Will share the defeat.
You can not avoid combat,
Because he who wants to avoid the fight:
Will thus fight for the cause of the enemy,
Who then needs not fight for his own cause

 

I love it when I can find the the lefties have been lying again and again, and even one of their favorites has been twisted from its original meaning.
