Offensive Actions Deserve Offensive Words

Democrats must really love war and terrorism. Don’t let their disdain for domestic gun sales confuse you, Democrats delight in death and destruction and the money that comes from spreading chaos to non-aligned countries, like Libya.

The morally bankrupt debate right now regarding Libya is whether or not to send more weapons. Are these people retarded? Morally bankrupt Democrats would probably be more upset that I used a politically incorrect word to describe this insanity than the actual insanity itself. From the link:

In 2015, the United Nations Security Council expressed concern over the unchecked spread of weapons to militant groups plaguing Libya following the fall of Muammar Gaddafi. Fast-forward a year: The country has descended further into chaos, as dozens of militias, Al Qaeda and ISIS, and two rival governments backed by armed groups vie for power. So, naturally, the United States is ready to ease the UN arms embargo that was put in place in 2011.

The United States, along with many of its international partners, wants to be able to supply “necessary lethal arms” to Libya’s UN-backed interim Government of National Accord to fight ISIS and other terrorist organizations. “It’s a delicate balance. But we are, all of us here today, supportive of the fact that if you have a legitimate government and that legitimate government is fighting terrorism, that legitimate government should not be victimized by [the embargo],” Secretary of State John Kerry said on Monday.

Legitimate government? Are you fucking kidding me?

How about that legitimate government in Saudi Arabia that financed the terrorist attack on 9/11? Democrats are so enamored with state-sponsored Wahhabi terrorism that their dear president will more than likely veto the Congressional effort to hold Saudi Arabia accountable because a great customer of the arms industry is more important than giving families of the victims a chance to go after the terrorist-financers in court.

War is great, Democrats love it, and their soon to be anointed Queen will keep the weapons of war proliferating to despotic maniacs like the Saudis:

The planes, made by Boeing, have been implicated in the bombing of three facilities supported by Doctors Without Borders (Médicins Sans Frontières). The U.N. Secretary General has decried “intense airstrikes in residential areas and on civilian buildings in Sanaa, including the chamber of commerce, a wedding hall, and a center for the blind,” and has warned that reports of cluster bombs being used in populated areas “may amount to a war crime due to their indiscriminate nature.”

Bombs dropped by fighter jets are pulverizing Yemen’s architectural history, possibly in violation of international humanitarian law.

A few years earlier, as secretary of state, Hillary Clinton made weapons transfer to the Saudi government a “top priority,” according to her closest military aide.

And now, newly released emails show that her aides kept her well-informed of the approval process for a $29.4 billion sale in 2011 of up to 84 advanced F-15SA fighters, manufactured by Boeing, along with upgrades to the pre-existing Saudi fleet of 70 F-15 aircraft and munitions, spare parts, training, maintenance, and logistics.

Dirt poor Yemen being bombed to smithereens is good for business, good for America and great for Democrats. They must have a great method to keep the ghosts of dead children from haunting their dreams at night.

Speaking of dead people, women supporters of Hillary should come up with a special incantation to ward off the violently dispatched spirit of Berta Cáceres. You see, in countries where American-supported coups happen, uppity bitches get killed. I hope the actions of a government Hillary supported taking power is more offensive than the language I am using. From the link:

EARLY IN THE MORNING on March 3, in La Esperanza, Honduras, unidentified men broke into the home of the environmental activist Berta Cáceres and murdered her. Cáceres was the cofounder of the Civic Council of Popular and Indigenous Movements of Honduras (COPINH) and the 2015 winner of the Goldman Environmental Prize, and her murder has prompted an international outcry as well as investigations supported by the United Nations and the FBI. The Mexican environmental activist Gustavo Castro, who was staying in Cáceres’s home in hopes of deterring violence against her, witnessed the murder and was subsequently detained by Honduran authorities. Amnesty International has warned that Castro, who was shot twice in the attack, is in “grave danger.”

Cáceres’s activism spanned several issues, including indigenous rights, feminism, LGBT rights, and environmentalism, but recently, “more than anything,” her sister Agustina Flores told me, “it was Agua Zarca,” a proposed hydroelectric dam project, which was to be built on the territory of the indigenous Lenca people. Flores, a retired teacher, says that Cáceres had received repeated death threats related to her work. The threats were so serious in recent months that the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights repeatedly called on the Honduran government to provide her with protection. Her sister said that protection was never provided. “We have feared for her life for a long time,” Flores said in a telephone interview, adding that in November, Cáceres told her she was being “seriously harassed” by three local politicians who she believed were acting at the behest of Desarrollos Energéticos, SA (DESA), the private energy company behind the Agua Zarca dam.

DESA is partially controlled by the controversial Honduran Atala family, whose members are involved in a variety of business ventures and suspected by many of having backed the 2009 coup. Best known among them is billionaire Camilo Atala, president of Banco Ficohsa, a regional bank that in 2014 acquired most of Citibank’s assets in the region, making it the largest bank in Honduras.

Please, female supporters of Hillary Clinton, explain that lesser-evil argument to me again. Maybe Montana’s Democrat matriarch, Carol Williams, can clarify how the hell she can justify saying this last night at Clinton’s campaign office opening event in Missoula:

“I knew that when she came to Washington, D.C., as First Lady, that she’d be an amazing First Lady,” Williams said. “I trust her judgment. In this day and age, with real problems in the world – the problems of terror and economic justice – these are things (Clinton) has worked on her entire life.”

Williams has apparently known Hillary for decades, which makes this statement even more audacious. I wonder, which Hillary did Carol know? Hillary Clinton, Goldwater girl? Hillary Clinton, Walmart director?  Hillary Clinton, slut-shamer?

The man Hillary Clinton had the good judgement to rise to power with will be in Billings tonight, at a Middle School. I hope every parent of a young girl at Will James Middle School will keep a close eye on their daughters tonight while Bill is in town.  Fortunately Bill’s billionaire pedophile friend, Jeffrey Epstein, isn’t allowed near children because he’s a registered sex offender now. Before being convicted and forced to register as an offender, though, I’m sure he was a great job creator for the young women he trafficked while flying around with Bill and other lecherous, powerful men in the private jet known as “The Lolita Express”.

All that said, I have a penis, so this is probably nothing more than suppressed sexism escaping through the guise of what I claim to be legitimate criticism, criticism of a political creature I assume must be a sociopath to do what she has done so adeptly, transforming seemingly intelligent people into cognitive dissonant time bombs with the fuses cut.

I’m afraid there will be no explosions of insight, or detonations of enlightenment to jolt the Hillary legions into realizing what it is they are actually supporting.

Please, DOJ, indict before it’s too late!

      I’m not sure why I should be so afraid of Trump. He’s speaking to blue collar and working class issues, the Democrats no longer seem to be. Even Bernie Sanders is saying how bad it is that Trump is stealing these issues from Democrats.

      I feel national Democrats only care about protecting Wall Street and Ivy League educated types these days. At the state level Democrats clamor for whatever fundraising droppings are left behind from that.

      If Hillary gets the nomination I think it’ll be a bad year for Democrats in Montana.

    I’d be curious to find out if there are any female supporters of Candidate Clinton reading here, or at least any who will respond to your loaded questions. As to your caricature of Bill Clinton as the lusty womanizer, that’s just a trope, well worn by the Republicants. What you are expressing isn’t “suppressed sexism”. It’s mansplaining why woman should fear Bill Clinton in any position of power.

        “Targets”? A value laden term you assume exists for them. That’s the very point behind mansplaining. In political context, assuming William Clinton is a sexual predator, or must be seen as such, is precisely a trope, often used to mask the infidelities of folk like Trump or Gingrich, the diaper games of Vitter, and most recently the true predation of Hastert.

      BC wouldn’t have had to settle if the accusations were false.

      “President Clinton reached an out-of-court settlement with Paula Jones yesterday, agreeing to pay her $850,000 to drop the sexual harassment lawsuit that led to the worst political crisis of his career and only the third presidential impeachment inquiry in American history.”-Washing Post.

  3. Caught the Thomas Frank episode of Alternate Radio a couple of weeks ago. According to Frank, Bill Clinton was ready to roll out his plan for privatizing Social Security until the Monica Lewinsky scandal erupted.

    Maybe we could give Monica a national holiday?
