The latest media buzz is about how wonderfully funny President Obama was at the White House Press Corp’s dinner the other evening. Coming a few days after President Obama and his Democratic Administration killed 147 civilians in a bombing raid in Afghanistan, it illustrates the complete callousness and indifference of the President to the mass murder he is carrying out. Though President Karzai requested that the U.S. end it’s bombing raids in his country, he was politely told to stick it. No head of a sovereign nation is going to tell our wonderful, peace-loving President not to bomb their civilians into eternity, even though it is a War Crime under established International Law. Like it or lump it.
Moreover, since under the Constitution, only Congress has the power to declare war, one wonders at the lack of protest by Liberals at the President’s waging war on his own initiative, without Congress voting on a Declaration. But let’s not let a little thing like the U.S. Constitution get in the way of our committing War Crimes. After all, it’s an anachronism, just like Congressman Ron Paul, who is so old fashioned, he actually believes in the Rule of Law.
And what of the Liberal media? Any hint of protest? No. Bruce Shapiro, on his weekly paean of praise for the President on Phillip Adams’ Radio Australia program, LNL, didn’t even mention an event that he surely would have cited as another example of Bush’s warmongering, if Bush were still President. But, as an editor at the Liberal rag, the Nation, he’s surely not going to point out the War Crimes of the man he has been praising for over a year, and whom he helped to elect. Anyway, what counts for Shapiro in the last week is not the agony of women and children terrorized, bombed into shards of flesh, and burned with white phosphorus, but that the President knows how to tell a joke, and laugh at himself. Yes, a real man of the people is our Chief Executive.
Once again, a Democratic Administration is committing War Crimes, and once again, the Democrats are as silent as sheep. No demonstrations from the Left in the Streets, though they helped to put him in office with his chant of “Change”, after which he quickly proceeded to install the whole archaic superstructure of the Clinton Regime.
America once more has blood on its hands, thanks to the Liberal Democrats. They think they can wash it away with a few laughs.
