For bloviating politicians like Mr. Biden and so many others – including several Republicans – today’s technology, particularly social media, is a menace. Decades-old diatribes they have completely forgotten about, and of which they are counting you having forgotten as well, come back to haunt them. Such is the case with this video.
Afghanistan Humanitarian Crisis
Last week, Sen Jim Risch (R-ID) released a report with a somewhat different accounting of the state of our current hostage crisis. His report estimates that 15,000 Americans were left behind when we precipitously fled from Afghanistan. He further estimates that since our departure, 6,000 of those Americans have been rescued by private organizations. Let that sink in.
The onus for finding homes for these people falls on religious and charitable groups. The government disperses then wipes their hands of them. These refugees have no say in their eventual home state and think of those lucky folks who go from the desert of Afghanistan to the tundra of Alaska. They have no money, job, home, cannot speak the language, and their children need to assimilate to new schools in unfamiliar locations.
Cultural Imperialism Through Western ‘Art’: Did This Ill-Advised Effort Contribute To The Afghanistan Failure?
The Afghans rejected the “woke” agenda being force-fed to them by know-it-alls who intruded into their lives with no regard for what they thought and felt. Indeed, there is a very sizable segment of American society who react similarly to the cultural dictates of the institutional powers-that-be. Will they ever listen? Will they ever? Can they even hear?
he medals and accolades by the Commander in Chief will not assuage the loss of loved ones to the families of our fallen. How much “ex gratia” payments will make an Afghan family forget having to bury the remains of a U.S. mistake? These questions will remain unanswered by this Administration. Biden and his minions still contend that this farce of an operation was well-planned and that all supported every aspect of it.
There some are lessons we can take away from the Afghan experience, ones that many learned long ago. First, don’t tolerate any leftist blather about “ethnocentrism,” multiculturalism or cultural relativism. While liberals are fuzzy-headed relativists, they only preach the above when it serves to destroy Western norms they dislike.
During a September 1st news conference, Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin stated that the U.S. military had evacuated a total of six thousand Americans. That would suggest there could be as many as five thousand Americans still left stranded as real live Taliban hostages, when one recalls the lowest figure given at the beginning of evacuation operations was eleven thousand Americans were there in-country, with a high confidence that as many as 40,000 total were spread across Afghanistan.
We have an oddly shaped political structure that has been coordinated to dominate our country. We have bankers, consultants, minorities, college children and bureaucrats to name a few. These are unnatural political alliances that come under strain as various outside events must be manipulated or recategorized for this disparate group to remain united.
Who in Creation would want to live the way Taliban guys live, anyway? The women do all the work so the guys can practice being vicious curs on any woman they catch all by herself. Mind you, that’s no easy thing. They gotta take care to beat, rape, and kill only women who have no menfolk who might take umbrage. Some guys just got no sense of fun at all.
When I see the images come across the screen from Afghanistan, I don’t just see a country falling apart. I see little girls who will no longer be able to continue their education. I see women whose lives are about to be destroyed. I see American allies who are in imminent danger. I see my friends who are terrified and aren’t sure that they will even make it to tomorrow.
