Secretary of State John Kerry has been betraying America and giving aid and comfort to our enemies since the Vietnam Era. Faking wounds, falsifying statements to obtain citations he didn’t earn, and to this day, lying about his exploits in Vietnam, are all of a piece for John Kerry. He’s never met an enemy of the United States he didn’t support, including Latin American and Soviet communists, and of course, Iran. In short, he’s a perfect Secretary of State for Barack Obama.
Kerry is also known for saying incredibly stupid things, many in the category of a gaffe: accidently saying what he–and Mr. Obama–really think, in essence, accidently telling the truth, always to America’s detriment. The most recent example comes from an August 29 speech in Bangladesh. I’ll not expose you to the entire thing, though you can find it here. Kerry, of course, blathered on about climate change, called Islam a “peaceful religion,” all the usual progressive spin, and then there was this, from PJ Media, an amazing excerpt:
Remember this: No country is immune from terrorism. It’s easy to terrorize. Government and law enforcement have to be correct 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. But if you decide one day you’re going to be a terrorist and you’re willing to kill yourself, you can go out and kill some people. You can make some noise. Perhaps the media would do us all a service if they didn’t cover it quite as much. People wouldn’t know what’s going on. (Applause.)
The Secretary of State of the United States of America is actually suggesting the media shouldn’t cover terrorist attacks. Why? So the public won’t know “what’s going on.” That line drew applause.
It’s tempting to attribute this to Kerry’s long demonstrated tendency to say idiotic things, and I’m sure others will have other views, but allow me please, gentle readers, to suggest a disquieting possibility, perhaps even a probability. This statement directly indicates that Kerry, Barack Obama, and his many followers, have absolutely no fear of the American public. They surely have no fear whatsoever of public opinion.
So what? They’ve been that way for years. Perhaps, but with but a few months left before they lose the power to which they have become accustomed, and to which they believe they deserve due to their moral and intellectual superiority, they may act on their lack of fear. What, after all, would restrain them? The Constitution? They have no respect for that. Patriotism? They sneer at patriots. The rule of law? This is the most lawless administration in history, and they’re not nearly done. All that’s left is fear of us, and there is more than ample reason to believe they–stupidly–have none.
Perhaps the Obamites will quietly move on to their own foundations and scams that will put millions in their pockets. Progressives are always working to build a permanent, unalterable Democrat majority, and they’re closer than ever before, with the help of innumerable useful Republican congressional idiots. That may be enough for them, particularly if it looks like Hillary has a lock on the presidency. Perhaps that will be enough.
We’ll know soon enough.
