GEORGE WILL: America’s Higher Education Brought Low. “People who are imprecisely called educators have taught, by their negative examples, what intelligence is not.”
SMART DIPLOMACYTM UPDATE: Obama & Kerry: Such a Fine Line Between Clever & Stupid.
Let’s put it bluntly: Kerry tells us that certain acts of mass terror are not as bad as others if the terrorists have a “legitimacy” or a “rationale” understandable to your average progressive elite moron, one that said moron “could attach to.” You find encapsulated here the self-loathing that progressives feel for Western society, a loathing so deep that they are willing to “attach” themselves to those who would kill us in cold blood as long as the killers had an understandable reason, of course. This is the same sort of “cool detached intellectualist logic” at work, say, when Hitler reoccupied the Rhineland, Stalin conducted his murderous purges, Castro and Che ran their firing squads 24/7, as Chavez/Maduro dismantle democracy in Venezuela, or as thugs take over universities in the name of “tolerance” and “black lives” etcetera, etcetera . . .
For the progressive the victims at Charlie Hebdo, of course, had committed the crime of treating Islam to almost the same level of mockery to which they subject Christianity, Judaism, Israel, and conservative politicians. They violated the Molotov-Von Ribbentrop Pact that exists between Islam and progressivism. It was too bad they had to die, but it was understandable.
Ouch. Plus: “Unfortunately for Western civilization, the Obama misadministration is not a fictional mockumentary. This is real. The disaster is real. The blood being spilled by Muslim crazies is real.”
ISIS is a JV team, they are “contained”, and he sent James Taylor to sing a song after the Charlie Hebdo attack. I’m not sure Obama can do much more…
