On Sunday, Nancy Pelosi released a statement to defend Joe Biden on his Afghanistan debacle. A total foreign policy blunder that even liberal media networks are slamming and blasting the Oval Office resident on his inept decisions that have caused chaos the last couple of days.
“The President is to be commended for the clarity of purpose of his statement on Afghanistan and the actions he has taken. We are deeply concerned about reports regarding the Taliban’s brutal treatment of all Afghans, especially women and girls. The U.S., the international community, and the Afghan government must do everything we can to protect women and girls from inhumane treatment by the Taliban,” said Pelosi.
“Any political settlement that the Afghans pursue to avert bloodshed must include having women at the table,” Pelosi added. Gotta love that “must.” I am sure the Taliban got a good belly laugh from this “stern warning.” I am sure the International Community will be tweeting up a storm to keep the Taliban in line. Pretty soon, they will break out the heavy artillery of Tik Tok.
Nancy is lecturing a different squad here, one that doesn’t play by Queensbury rules and whose political acts are a bit less performative and a bit more consequential than “camping” on the Capitol steps.
It’s easy to say that Nancy is detached from reality when she makes these ridiculous statements. But I wonder if she really thinks her statement will have any impact or whether she is just making it to her base so they can all feel better about leaving those women out to dry.
Either she believes her statement will actually cause a change in Taliban behavior (which means she is truly detached from reality), or she knows she is lying and therefore doesn’t care about those women who care about “appearing to care” about those women. Honestly, both are terrifying.
Nancy knows that the media no longer does its job and that her words will be soundbites on network channels, and the media will praise her words. Never mind that thousands of women will now be maimed, beaten, tortured, killed, raped, and forced into marriage. Nancy spoke.
Everyone knows Afghans have little regard for females. Witness the hordes of non-disabled men desperate to save themselves. Their women, children, and the elderly are abandoned without a thought. We don’t need these cowards in the US.
Forcing the values of Pelosi on the Afghans for 20 years is exactly why the entire enterprise failed so spectacularly.
Let’s face it. All of the government agencies and NGO’s that were involved in Afghanistan – remember Barack Obama called it the “good war” – are populated by people from the far left. They could not leave alone and let Afghanistan form a society based on its own culture minus the Taliban. They had to force feminist and gender ideology on Afghanistan because they think that’s what our military is for.
Most clear thinkers knew the gig was up when our glorious leaders flew the gay pride flag over the US Embassy in Kabul this summer. Want to know why the Taliban were able to move so fast? A conservative and religious Muslim society was not going to fight for that flag.
We have a barely coherent president, a vice president who is often missing in action and incompetent when she shows up, and a speaker of the House that is ‘detached from reality, as the EB so genteelly states. Folks, we are in for a world of hurt if the GOP does not stand up and fight this ship of fools every step of the way, throw every obstacle in their path, and, yes, resist.
BBC aired a live interview of an Afghan woman hiding from the Taliban like many 1000s of Afghan women, especially in Kabul. She related the excruciating fear they all face and broke down crying inconsolably at their abandonment by the US.
“Progressives” don’t really care about human misery. They don’t really care about rape and the real oppression of women. And they don’t make apologies when they plainly show by their actions that they don’t really care. Notice that Creepy Uncle Joe Biden stated in his speech that regardless of the real, foreseeable consequences of his stepping back, it was the “right” thing to do.
She’s speaking to her base; they expect to hear “the message,” which has nothing to do with substance but everything to do with the appearance of caring. Now they all feel better as feelings are what matters, and they can go back to their comfortable, safe lives having filed this pitiful event away in their locker of caring feelings. Her liberal base sighs with relief that she mentions the unmentionable, assuaging any tinges of guilt as they sit down for a cocktail or two this evening. It makes me sick! We made a commitment right or wrong to people who placed their trust and their lives in us. This nation has lost its honor as it takes another step deeper into the pit.
