A warm Gates of Vienna welcome to James Wolcott readers!
By all means see our response to his belated recognition of this post.
Also, here are the contest results, with the winners and the grand prize.
Yesterday’s post in response to TigerHawk discussed what would be necessary to militarize the West. In the comments section, ScottSA asserted that Western conservatives need slogans, some brief and pithy catch-phrases which express our cause succinctly. World War Two had its slogans. Our enemies in Islam have their slogans. The appeasers and fellow-travelers on the Left have their neo-Marxist slogans. Why don’t we have any counter-jihad slogans of our own?
In his own blog, Crusader, ScottSA offered his own contribution:
Let’s Stop Pretending.
Everyone should go over there and take a look at the excellent photo essay that accompanies the slogan.
One of our readers suggested:
Not all Muslims are terrorists, but all terrorists are Muslims.
I’d have to qualify the dependent clause in that one with “almost”, though, or else Eteraz would be down on me like a ton of bricks.
So, here’s the revised version for the nitpickers:
Not all Muslims are terrorists; however, all terrorists but four are Muslims.
Then there’s the Gates of Vienna contribution:
We are in a new phase of a very old war.
Does anybody have other suggestions? Send them in an email or leave them in the comments, and I’ll collect them all into a post and we’ll have a slogan contest.
Note: We need at least ten slogans; that way, there will be enough contestants to make things interesting.
