President Trump did what he promised while campaigning in 2016, he acted on January 3rd of this by eliminating perhaps the greatest threat to American lives and any hopes of stability of the Middle East, Iran’s Qasem Soleimani.
Nowhere has the radical left shown its disdain for Trump more and the average American in its reaction to the death of this terrorist. It isn’t surprising that the likes of filmmaker Michael Moore couldn’t wait to rail against Trump, claiming the Iranian mastermind of death had been “assassinated” and the American people are dupes for believing President Trump over anything Iran’s leadership had to say.
Moore tweeted, “Hello fellow Americans. Do you know this man? Did you know he was your enemy? What? Never heard of him? By the end of today you will be trained to hate him. You will be glad Trump had him assassinated. You will do as you are told. Get ready to send your sons &daughters off 2 war.”
More later about the wacko Hollywood elites and their opinions, but surely a seasoned Speaker of the House would speak with more reason. Sadly no. Nancy Pelosi, who can’t decide how to handle the impeachment her own Democrat colleagues voted for, said after it was revealed that Iran had targeted a US military base in Iraq that Trump’s “needless provocations” were to blame…it was not, she insisted, anything perpetrated by Soleimani or Iran’s government.
The liberal run mainstream media was just as terrible. They’ve spent every day this week trying to convince the American people that President Trump just started World War 3. Pundits on MSNBC, CNN, NBC and others railed against Trump, they acted as if Trump started this engagement and left out telling the audience everything Iran had done that Trump had previously ignored.
The hypocrisy of the left in the matter is undeniable. The Stream’s John Scott Jones published a list in 2013 noting 178 civilian children were killed by US drones under the Obama administration. Noting that neither Moore nor Pelosi ever mentioned those deaths of the innocent.
Scott noted, “These people have made whole careers … by cynically mimicking the goodhearted instincts of the American people … Michael Moore and his ilk certainly didn’t believe in peace when it counted most. They fell silent while a thoughtless and cruel foreign policy establishment maimed the Middle East during the eight years of the Obama administration.”
Michael Moore bemoaned the fact Americans probably had never heard the name Soleimani before his death last week. Hundreds of casualties resulted from President Obama’s careless handling of Iran. The drone strikes he ordered killed civilians indiscriminately, yet the left was silent.
Compare that to the attack President Trump ordered on Soleimani. Obama’s strikes were against guessed-at-targets in the middle of villages filled with innocent children and their mothers. They targeted youthful recruits as they cleaned their weapons at a remote outpost in Iran.
The strike President Trump ordered that Nancy Pelosi railed against was a single, precision strike. It targeted a known murdering mastermind responsible for helping plan the deaths of 600,000 in Syria amid overtaking Iraq and Lebanon.
So, while the liberal run media leaves out the facts, Hollywood leftists take to Twitter and Nancy Pelosi wastes our time with her histrionics, President Trump stood flanked by his national security team – Vice President Mike Pence, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Defense Secretary Mark T. Esper and top military brass – and declared “As long as I am President of the United States, Iran will never be allowed to have a nuclear weapon.”
No hypocrisy there.
