Foreign Policy President leaves Israel out to dry, dithers over embassy response
And the media dutifully cover for him, while the thinkers attack Romney for his presumptuousness.
Nero fiddled while Rome burned. So I guess you’ve got to hand it to Obama: at least he’s figuring out a way to maybe take in a show and hit the black jack table while the whole fucking top three layers burn off and we find ourselves once again back in the age of scimitars and religious wars. Which we won’t be able to fight effectively for fear of offending someone somewhere with our post-colonialist, racist, xenophobic, homophobic misogony and failure to allow the Other his Otherness.
Being seen as tolerant and as a result finding yourself enslaved (but ostentatiously righteous!) is better than admitting to a fixed set of principles and defending them, and by doing so asserting a defense of our own beliefs, over and against the beliefs of others who wish to do us harm. Because that’s just not very thinky or tolerant.
This isn’t leading from behind. It’s Cloward Piven, with the whole world being used as a transnational progressivist RISK board.
Sucks that some of us can see, some of us can’t, and some of those who do pretend not to.
