What happens when you put a pampered liberal adolescent into an important position as a State Department spokesperson and turn her loose on national television? In the case of Marie Harf, the answer is widespread recognition of your naiveté, immaturity, lack of qualifications for your position and your socialist idiocy.
It’s not so much that her communist-based solutions of wealth redistribution to terrorists and the associated equating of the American people with the regime’s terrorist comrades is misplaced in the Obama State Department, she just isn’t supposed to come right out and say it.
Most clear-thinking people in the world, including conservative Americans, understand that redistributing wealth to those who intend to destroy us is a bad idea. Of course our government is engaged in doing that very thing now, so maybe Harf has more clarity than she’s given credit for. Maybe she doesn’t see a difference between what she advocates and the many forms of financial aid we are now semi-openly providing to our enemies around the globe.
Harf also exposes her simplistic “poverty is the root of all evil” view of the problems she’s supposedly solving for the world with her assertion that poverty causes terrorism. As we all know, the Bin Laden family is very wealthy. Much of the terrorist leadership as well as their foot-soldiers are composed of those of moderate and greater financial means.
If Harf is capable of understanding that there is such a thing as good in this world, she might want to take the next necessary step which would be the discovery that evil actually does exist as well. In fact, she’s working for evil at this very moment whether she’s aware of it or not.
Once she is able to recognize that evil is a reality, that those people who are motivated to butcher innocent people are not doing so because they can’t have a prime goat rib dinner or a new pair of Nikes, she might understand how foolish and naïve she has shown herself to be.
With that knowledge would come the unpleasant realization that she is totally unqualified to hold the position she now has, or any position within our government leadership. She could still be a mail carrier, maybe.
“Air head” was a term we used to use to describe people such as the Harf in the seventies. While she can be dangerous in her current position, what is more threatening is the existence of similar, like-minded, brainwashed liberal simpletons in other, more critical positions.
There is a cultural lack of ability and discernment that is inherent with polluting one’s government with liberal ideologues. In that regard, Ms Harf has exposed a serious problem the American people created for themselves by allowing Hussein Obama to assume his position.
Our situation with our government is not unlike that of the City of Cleveland forty years ago when the Cuyahoga River caught fire and burned due to its heavy levels of pollution. Our government is burning from the pollution of socialist idiocy, and no firefighting tugboats have been able to respond.
The cure then was as it is now, to clean up the mess, take out the trash, and get rid of the toxic poisons that are floating on the top. That means not only eliminating the ignorance of Ms Harf from our national foreign policy, but the other liberal mental midgets as well, including senior positions, across all agencies.
We do not have unlimited resources to dump into a terrorist jobs program nor would it be a wise or reasonable expenditure of funds if we did. Killing them is the answer. It worked in World Wars one and two and it will work in the case of ISIS.
Harf should have taken the mulligan when she had the chance. Sadly, ISIS doesn’t offer them; we need to get it right the first time, and we aren’t.
