Appeasement is giving in to the demands of an enemy in order to avoid conflict. Islamists demand that we truncate our freedom of speech when it comes to depictions of Islam or Mohammed. Obama's criticism of someone who exercised their free speech in that manner and the subsequent (purely coincidental, I'm sure) jailing of that person is designed to placate those Islamist concerns. That's not the same as handing over California to prevent Mexico from attacking us, but it's appeasement nonetheless, whether you like it or not.
