A lot of liberals were foaming-at-the-mouth mad at Donald Trump every single day that he was in the White House. But that was all fake. Those were mostly emotionally damaged attention seekers whose anger wasn’t based on anything real. (But enough about MSNBC!) The anger the American people feel against Joe Biden today is real – and it is an all-consuming anger based on reality.
Joe Biden and his woke military commanders are getting Americans killed on the ground in Afghanistan for the first time in a long time. The death toll at the Kabul airport, as of this writing, is now up to 13 American service members and 90 civilians. At least another 150 civilians were gravely wounded. And Joe Biden’s response to this is… not inspiring, to put it mildly.
The Taliban demanded to be put in charge of airport security checkpoints in Kabul, and Joe Biden let them. Of course he did. To quote noted foreign policy expert Hillary Clinton, what difference at this point does it make?!
This serves multiple purposes for the Taliban, obviously. First, it’s incredibly humiliating to the United States. They make a demand, and Joe Biden complies. Second, it allows them to stop anyone if they don’t want to allow that person to leave the country. And third, it allows them to let any known terrorist through the checkpoints, so that person can fly to your neighborhood and move in with a taxpayer-provided Section 8 voucher.
The Taliban allowed someone wearing a suicide vest through one of their checkpoints, and the obvious happened next. That person detonated themselves near a dozen US Marines, a Navy medical corpsman, and a bunch of Aghan Christian women and children who were waiting to be evacuated on a plane that Glenn Beck had organized to get them out. (By the way, Beck to his great credit is flying these people out as refugees to countries where they would not have any difficulty assimilating, i.e., not America.)
When a catastrophe like this happens, the American people expect an address or a speech of some sort from the person in charge. When a Republican president is in office, the media demands a presidential address, and it must be given to the standards of their liking.
On the day of the 9/11 attacks in 2001, President George W. Bush was visiting a school in Florida. Less than an hour after the planes hit the World Trade Center towers, Bush addressed the nation from that school. The media then spent the rest of the day complaining about Bush’s address, because he didn’t give that address from behind a desk or a podium with the presidential seal on it. Peter Jennings at ABC News whined for two straight hours about how Bush’s address was “not cosmopolitan enough” to suit his standards.
A few hours later, after the media was starting to confuse Americans with its live coverage of how Bush was not addressing the nation, Bush gave a second address to the nation. He did it from behind a desk with the presidential seal for that one, to salve the wounds of the media. That one looked president-y enough for them.
Joe Biden, by contrast, sat around for nine hours not addressing the nation on a day when a suicide bomber killed the most American soldiers in a single day in Afghanistan since, well… since the last time Joe Biden was at the White House as Obama’s vice president (2011). Biden was finally supposed to address the nation at 5 p.m. Eastern time, but he showed up 25 minutes late.
And his remarks were extremely bizarre. Here is the message that Joe Biden sent to the person who detonated himself at the Kabul airport and killed our Marines:
“We will not forgive. We will not forget. We will hunt you down and make you pay!”
Uh… do you guys want to tell him? I kind of want to tell him.
The thing about suicide bombers, when they successfully carry out their attacks, is that there’s nothing left to “hunt down” and punish. If you’re lucky you might find a thumb or a shoe. In other words, Joe Biden won’t be hunting down anyone. There’s not going to be any justice extracted for our troops who just paid the ultimate price for Joe Biden and the Democrat Party’s incompetence.
