"If..."

Sounds like something straight from Asterix, but it is a historical fact: Phillip of Macedonia, father of Alexander the Great conquered all of Greece, except Sparta. Not that he didn't try, though. He sent a warning to Spartans:"You are advised to submit without further delay, for if I bring my army into your land, I will destroy your farms, slay your people, and raze your city." The Spartans, always witty, replied with one word:"If..." In spite of the city by then being in steady decline for over a century their reputation was still very high and eventually Phillip dropped the idea.

Gates of Vienna has thankfully decided to call it a day in the war against LGF. There is no point, nobody is as deaf as those who do not wish to hear and trying to get them to listen is a waste of time and energy. In the comments section, Fjordman added final remarks in two parts that show the kind of people Charles Johnson has been using as sources in order to smear Fjordman, GoV, Sverigedemokraterna and others. Fjordman concludes with:

If Mr. Johnson still had a shred of decency left, he would apologize for ever linking to that organization and distance himself from both their viewpoints and their methods.
