His business cards may read “Secretary of State” but in reality, he’s “Secretary of Stupidity.”
President Obama has made history in one way that will never be eclipsed. He’s given us a man who committed treason (Paris 1971, met with the North Vietnamese while a commissioned officer in the US Naval Reserve) as Secretary of State. That’s a double whammy. Jimmy Carter’s Vietnam amnesty program got his less than honorable discharge wiped off the record and President Obama finally recognizes him for his service to America’s enemies by making him a Cabinet Officer.
Kerry has never been the brightest bulb in the box, but over the last week he’s set a new standard for rank stupidity.
One thing we’ll say for the Department of State, they’ve got a perfect match for Kerry with Jen Psaki, the State Department SpokesTwit. She’s as big an embarrassment as Kerry.
Charles Krauthammer pretty well hit the nail on the head with this one.
It’s beyond nonsense. It’s pernicious and extremely harmful. What the Secretary of State of the United States has succeeded in doing in what he thought was a private comment is to echo and therefore to legitimize the worst of the libelous claims against the Jewish state. If there is one minority in the Middle East that enjoys the rule of law and protection and democracy it is Arabs in Israel. One out of every five Israelis is a Palestinian, overwhelming they are Muslim. There are Arabs in the government, in the Supreme Court, in all walks of life, in the universities.
There’s actually affirmative action if you are a Palestinian in the universities. And to compare that in any way with the systematic discrimination against black Africans in South Africa is truly appalling and hurtful. I think Cruz is right. This is beyond something requiring an apology. I think this is a resigning-type statement. This is an injury to an ally that will echo because it will be repeated, and people will saying, “I’m not saying this, it is the Secretary of State of the United States.” It is untrue. It is pernicious and it’s truly something that demands at the very least an immediate apology.
Kerry, like the President and pretty much the entire administration, but especially the career staffers at the State Stupid Department, are rank anti-Semites who hate Israel with a passion typically only seen in the Arab states.
Kerry has gotten all huffy about people condemning his “A word” comments, whining about how he always voted to support Israel as a Senator. What he doesn’t say is that “those votes” were always part of a larger bill – total foreign aid package for instance – not unique bills supporting Israel over the butchering factions of Hamas and Hezbollah that border them.
John Kerry is ten thousand times worse, and more of a bigot, than Donald Sterling. If Sterling can be tossed from the NBA, certainly we should be able to toss Kerry from not just his job as Secretary of Stupid, but the country.
