Rage Produces Much Heat but Little Light
In recent weeks, anti-American cabals have unleashed much sound and fury but little of substance; much heat, but little light. Their aim is to terrorize the majority by pretending that hatred of America is more widespread than it really is.
This reminds me of a passage in President Ulysses S. Grant's memoirs.
In Texas, during the Mexican-American
war, Grant, then a lieutenant, accompanied by another officer, goes to
investigate the howling of what sounds like a huge pack of wolves. When they
arrived, they saw that: "There were just two of them; they had made all the
noise we had heard. I have often thought of this incident since when I have
heard the noises of a few disappointed politicians... There are always more of
them before they are counted."
