Kerry made another faux pas, and I don’t understand why it isn’t making bigger headlines, considering that he’s a Senator and should be held accountable for all of his disgusting actions against the United States in a time of war; first, during the conflict in Vietnam, and now, during the war in Iraq. This article was dated February 1st.
Sen. John Kerry, the 2004 Democratic candidate for president, is at it again with another rude gaffe, this one providing an unintended glimpse of the way many contemporary cosmopolitan elites characterize their homeland when abroad.
In the past, Kerry has said that our soldiers were “terrorizing’’ Iraqi civilians in their homes. He has also warned that uneducated Americans “get stuck in Iraq’’ — a supposedly botched joke. Now, he assures an audience at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, that the United States is a “sort of international pariah.’’
Kerry, who appeared on stage in Davos this past weekend with former Iranian President Mohammad Khatami, also proclaimed, “When we walk away from global warming, Kyoto, when we are irresponsibly slow in moving toward AIDS in Africa, when we don’t advance and live up to our own rhetoric and standards, we set a terrible message of duplicity and hypocrisy.’‘
Kerry could learn a few simple rules of etiquette that should guide the “message’’ of all high American officials when abroad:
Tell the whole truth without posturing or spinning.g
Ever determined to make The United States out to be the Great Satan, Kerry’s words are sounding exactly the same as those of Bin Laden.
the Kyoto Protocol, the international climate treaty, was first rejected by the United S. in 1997. Ten years ago, President Clinton wisely chose not to refer the treaty to the Senate. Even that was not enough for outraged senators, who went ahead anyway to vote 95-0 to oppose any international agreement on climate control like Kyoto in which China, India and other developing countries would remain exempt. Kerry himself cast one of these votes — an ironic example of what Kerry now calls “duplicity and hypocrisy.’’
Nor was the United States “irresponsibly slow’’ in regard to African AIDS relief. In fact, the Bush administration has devoted $4 billion annually to combat AIDS in Africa. That’s triple what the Clinton administration budgeted. That generosity deserves praise, not scorn.
Remember we are at war.
Kerry’s criticisms are hauntingly similar to Al-Qaida’s own talking points. Both Osama bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahiri have preposterously claimed that America’s past inaction on Kyoto was a good excuse for going to war. In various ways, they have long blamed America for the spread of AIDS, and insisted that the United States is an international outlaw. When Kerry makes similar charges, it only enhances the jihadist propaganda, and weakens the United States in a war that is largely to be decided by relative resolve.
Ever in bed with the enemy, this is completely reminiscent of his taking communist Madame Bin’s talking points and bringing them back to America.
This is another example why it’s clear that Kerry is a master at twisting the truth; although he’s not really that clever at it, and using those lies for political gain, just like the terrorist propagandists in the media, and the terrorists themselves who want to destroy America. He is one of the people who has used his position in the Senate to destroy America; talk against the war and undermine the war effort; absolutely no different than what he did 30 years ago.
We are still calling for him to release his records; since there are gaps in his service in Vietnam, and a 6-year gap between his leaving the Navy and his discharge.
Also, see Musing Minds where we are reminded that January 30th marked the 2-year landmark of the empty promise he made in front of the American people to release his records.
