Acquiesce, Appease & Compromise
Acquiesce - Accept something, maybe reluctantly, but without protest
Appease - Pacify by passively acceding to others’ demands, no big deal
Compromise - An agreement reached by making concessions
By reluctantly accepting a premise with no protest and then passively acceding to others’ demands, one deals from a weak position if put in a compromising situation. If the acquiescing and appeasing is being worked in a public forum (politics), one will later compromise from an incredibly fragile position.
If one is not brutally dominant from the beginning, like today’s black minority with enormous liberal support continuously demonstrate and have done so for years, one cannot expect to win in a compromise. And, as can be clearly witnessed, the minorities do not intend to compromise; they want it all.
Since the Republican politicians did not want to be nor can they afford to be labeled a racist, they acquiesced and appeased hoping that the people or event or demand would just naturally go away. It did not!
Radical behavior with incredible demands from minorities has gone on for years while the Republican politicians not wanting to get involved with anything “too sticky”, passively watched. Neither the leftist minority groups, NAACP, Antifa or BLM, nor the ludicrous demands went away. They grew in number, they became more vocal, more demonstrative and much stronger. Now the Republican politician is trapped. The behavior and demands, over time, have become ‘normalized’ by the liberal press. The politician cannot fight the newly developed normal that they allowed to develop. And, if taken even one step forward, they will be labeled as racist or white nationalist or white supremacist as identified in Critical Race Theory.
The Republican politician developed the perfect storm for us conservatives. His lack of backbone brought about our considerable doom unless we take it upon ourselves to fight back. Ask yourself, ‘How does the black 12.5% of the United States population so dominate the conversation of the 65% white population?’
There is now no room left for compromise. We, Sons of Confederate Veterans, must stand shoulder to shoulder with common voice to stop the insanity we see happening today. We must research our prospective politicians carefully, let them know our specific non-compromise viewpoints, vote for them, and then hold them accountable. Also, one must remember, Republican does not always mean conservative.
