Heywood H. Broun on appeasement

Here’s a good one from Canada-based Liberty quotes:

“Appeasers believe that if you keep on throwing steaks to a tiger, the tiger will turn vegetarian.”
— Heywood Hale Broun (1918-2001) American sportswriter, commentator, and actor

H.H. Broun is a hero of U.S. newspaper unionism, led formation of The American Newspaper Guild — later renamed The Newspaper Guild (I’m not sure why), which gives an award named after him.

He might be saying this in re: Iranian mullahs or N. Korea these days, where hope and change reigns.
