The Obama administration has tried hard throughout its two terms in office to persuade Americans – indeed, the entire world – that the global terrorist threat is due to everything butt…Islam.
Various pretzel-like “rationalizations” have been peddled to “deflect” attention from the “true” cause.
Thus, Major Nidal Hasan’s murderous rampage in 2009 that left 13 people “dead” at Fort Hood, Texas was termed “workplace violence.”
Later, State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf infamously declared that the “root cause” of terrorism is “a lack of opportunity for jobs”:
“We cannot kill our way out of this war. We need in the medium to longer term to go after the root causes that leads people to join these groups, whether it’s a lack of opportunity for jobs, whether we can work with countries around the world to help improve their governance. We can help them build their economies so they can have job opportunities for these people.”
A month ago, Attorney General Loretta Lynch “topped” Harf in the “insanity” department with these pearls of wisdom:
“The good in this world far outweighs the evil. Our common humanity transcends our differences, and our most effective response to terror is compassion, it’s unity and it’s love. We stand with you today because we grieve together, and long after the cameras are gone will continue to stand with you as we grow together in commitment and solidarity and in equality.”
The latest “silly” statement was made by none other than Hillary Clinton’s successor at “Foggy Bottom,” Secretary of State John “Ketchup” Kerry.
Gaffe-inclined Kerry was in Vienna, Austria to “negotiate” a global climate deal to “phase out” hydrofluorocarbons (HFC’s), chemicals used in “air conditioning and refrigeration.”
HFC’s are a source of “greenhouse” gas emissions that some scientists have alleged “contribute” to global warming.
According to various sources, Kerry claimed that refrigerator and air conditioner chemicals pose an “equal threat to life on the planet as ISIS and their global terrorist threat.”
Kerry, a notorious global warming fear monger, went off the deep-end, making this “idiot” claim, and giving the right a perfect sound-bite illustrating the left’s “incapacity” to understand and fight our greatest threat: “radical Islamic terrorism, or jihad.”
“As we were working together on the challenge of ISIS and terrorism, it’s hard for some people to grasp it, but what we – you – are doing here right now is of equal importance because it has the ability to literally save life on the planet itself. The use of hydrofluorocarbons is unfortunately growing. Already, the HFC’s use in refrigerators, air conditioners, and other items are emitting an entire gigaton of carbon dioxide-equivalent pollution into the atmosphere annually. Now, if that sounds like a lot, my friends, it’s because it is. It’s the equivalent to emissions from nearly 300 coal-fired power plants every single year.”
Kerry said that most of the substances banned in the Montreal Protocol have increased the use of HFC’s and claimed that the “coolant was thousands of times more potent than CO2. He added that the increase of HFC’s has led to the trend of global climate change,” notes Fox News.
Apparently with a straight Botox face, “Ketchup” Kerry is asking us to believe that commercial chemicals that allegedly contribute to global warming are “morally on par with the wanton, indiscriminate murder of innocents by Islamic jihadists.”
Preposterous, of course; but then the Obama administration has been living in an “alternative reality” for quite a while when it comes to “radical Islamic terrorism.“
Ironically, an Iranian-German 18-year-old murdered nine innocent people outside a strip mall in Munich—that same day that Kerry “warned” about refrigerators.
Germany treated the shooting as “terrorism,” and a witness reportedly heard the man shouting “Alluha Akbar” as he shot children in a McDonald’s restaurant.
Further, a Muslim “refugee” from Syria seeking asylum in Germany murdered one woman and injured two others with a machete. He reportedly pledged “allegiance” to ISIS before “blowing” himself and others up.
Stunningly, in both cases, it was not one of those “equally murderous refrigerators or air conditioners.”
Even if we grant “Hanoi Traitor” Kerry all the hysterical “settled science” concerning global warning, or climate change, or whatever the left calls it now, the “comparison” to the Islamic State is nonsensical.
“The threat of terrorism is immediate, barbaric, growing by the moment, and ripping apart families across the globe.”
The willingness to “downplay” this by comparing “radical Islam terrorism to refrigerators and air conditioners” reeks of, dare I say, a cover-up,” or at the least, an attempted “manipulation” of the people.
“Terrorism isn’t so bad, you see, your refrigerator and air conditioner is equally threatening, thus the Obama Administration is doing just fine. Right?”
Little is likely to change as Democrats meet in Philadelphia to anoint “Clinton-Kaine” or “Kaine and Unable,” as some wags have “labeled” the ticket.
Stop laughing. Kerry is right. Watch for the next “mass shooting” by air conditioners and refrigerators vowing the imminent “destruction” of the U.S.
It’s not a joke. In what world would this kind of absurd “rhetoric” be taken seriously? In a world “dominated” by the left.
These are “dark” days for this country.
Wouldn’t you expect there to be calls to “remove” Kerry from his position of responsibility, and “incarcerate” him in an institution for “unreachably” insanity?
Yet a recent declaration by Hanoi John Kerry is comparable, and he is still running loose “unmedicated,” not even “wearing” a straitjacket.
Yes, “fear” your air conditioners and refrigerators, America, but welcome “jihad terrorists” into your cities, towns and villages.
John Kerry should repeat this “warning” when he meets with the families of the “victims” of San Bernardino, Orlando, Chattanooga, Paris, Brussels, Dhaka, Munich, Fort Hood, Boston …and counting.
Mental illness aside, “hyperbole” has been the “envirofascist” propaganda tactic of “choice” for some time now.
As the global warming “hoax” gradually collapses, increasingly “desperate” proponents have been throwing their “hair-on-fire” prognostications of doom into overdrive, “plunging” ever deeper into the realm of “self-parody” and not looking back to see us “laughing.”
Less funny is that “kooks” like Kerry run the ever more “powerful” federal government.
Enjoy “refrigeration and air conditioning” while they are still permitted.
Out of his freaking mind.
Help John Kerry get rid of his carbon-emitting polluting air conditioners
