Brah·min ..ˈbrämin/noun 1. variant spelling of Brahman. 2. US a socially or culturally superior person, especially a member of the upper classes from New England.
Which describes John Kerry to a “Tee”, a privileged “Brahmin-Blue-Blood” as we were wont to describe the NE upper-class during our 10-year residence in Cape Cod. Which is not to say that Brahmins can’t be traitors, they most definitely can, and the enduring memory one has for Kerry is just that, and it goes all the way back to 1971. Hanoi to Hamas. As described by one of his swift-boat contemporaries: “The man is a vile individual who should have been fragged in Viet Nam. The world would have been a far better place for his permanent removal. Traitor, coward, liar, fraud, he is one of the worst villains to ever disgrace an American military uniform. That he could become a Senator and Cabinet Secretary speaks to the sickness and moral blight that is the contemporary American political system.”
Jeffrey Lord knows all about Communist Plants like these, having served as Political Director in the Reagan White House, and gives us his killer insight into the mind and being of this festering blot on the American landscape… Hanoi to Hamas.
John Kerry sees no evil. The Israeli media is catching on.
Last night, the news arrived that Secretary of State Kerry and UN General Secretary Ban Ki-Moon had issued a joint statement announcing a 72-hour truce between Israel and Hamas. Reported the Washington Post:
GAZA CITY — Israel and Hamas have agreed to an unconditional, 72-hour humanitarian truce to begin Friday morning, diplomats from the United States and the United Nations announced Thursday, potentially paving the way for an end to the 24-day-old conflict.
Got that? John Kerry has brokered a truce that will be “paving the way for an end to the 24-day-old conflict” between Israel and Hamas, the latter who has openly sworn to “eliminate” Israel. If you believe that this is “the end” of a conflict that is a mere 24 days olds (???), there is always that bridge in Brooklyn for sale (these days waving a white surrender flag). John Kerry has brought peace in the Middle East? Really?
From the moment he burst on the national scene in 1971 as a young Vietnam vet, his family connections and anti-war views landing him a spot testifying before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, right straight through to today as the U.S. Secretary of State, Kerry has demonstrated repeatedly that he is unable to grasp not only serious threats to the United States and the larger world as well.
What has been on display again and again in Kerry’s public career is a tone-deafness when it comes to the manifestation of evil. Unless, of course, in the style of that old comic strip character Pogo, he has met the enemy and he is us.
Famously in that televised 1971 testimony (seen here) Kerry attacked his fellow vets for “cutting off ears” and acting like “Genghis Khan.” He would pay a serious political price for this decades later when he ran for president and some of his still-infuriated fellow Vietnam vets came out to sink his White House bid. But there was more in that long ago testimony than imputing terrible deeds to U.S. soldiers. Said young Mr. Kerry of his view of the world in his testimony to an appreciative audience of liberal senators and anti-war protestors:
It is my opinion that the United States is still reacting in very much the 1945 mood and postwar cold-war period when we reacted to the forces which were at work in World War II and came out of it with this paranoia about the Russians and how the world was going to be divided up between the super powers, and the foreign policy of John Foster Dulles which was responsible for the creation of the SEATO treaty, which was, in fact, a direct reaction to this so-called Communist monolith. And I think we are reacting under cold-war precepts which are no longer applicable… but we must learn, in this country, how to define those threats and that is what I would say to this question of world peace. I think it is bogus, totally artificial.
[…] There is no threat. The Communists are not about to take over our McDonald hamburger stands. [Laughter.]Got it? “There is no threat” Kerry said categorically.
