The Pope of Hypocrisy

I just read the speech, sorry, “the remarks” that John Kerry made at the World Economic Forum in January of this year, and want to share a couple of the laugh-or-barf comments.

There are no grounds of history, religion, ideology, grievance, psychology, politics, economic disadvantage, or personal ambition that will ever justify the murder of children, the kidnapping and the rape of teenage girls, or the slaughter of unarmed civilians, whether for ideology or for some false religious assertion – none. No matter the input, this kind of atrocity can really never be rationalized; these kinds of actions can never be excused; and they have to be opposed with every fiber of our being. They have to be stopped.

Can you believe this guy? If hypocrisy were a religion Kerry would be its Pope. Can this Secretary of State be unaware that his state has been drone-and-hellfire-missile killing children and unarmed civilians in several countries for years? He seems incapable of assuming that women and children must have been among the more than 1.000.000 people his state killed in its illegal war in Iraq. Not only is the state for which he is secretary world leader in slaughtering innocents, it even kills babies not yet born due to its generous use of DU (depleted uranium) weapons. (The UN produced a report about the effects of these weapons but Kerry’s state prevented it from being published.) Israel places second for numbers of killed kids and first in receiving aid from Kerry’s state.

What’s Kerry’s plan to oppose the killings with every fiber of his being?

And the place to begin is quite simply by defeating Daesh. Why? Because they are better armed, better trained, better funded, and have been more able to hold onto territory than any other terrorist group in history; because they directly threaten the peace and stability not of one group in Iraq, but of every single country in the region; and because they have further overtly threatened to take their threat around the globe and are working to do so. This is a threat to the entire structure that we have worked so hard to put in place since the end of World War II. It’s a threat to nation-states. It is a threat to rule of law. And freeing Iraq from its ruthless occupiers is the critical, crucial first turning point.

You’ve noticed by now that secretary John is linguistically challenged, but what is this “entire structure” he’s referring to? It’s the structure outlined in The Project for the New American Century (PNAC) with the explicit goal “to promote American global leadership” (through economic and military dominance) because “American leadership is good for the world.”
John Secretary of State Kerry proves to be a superstar of arrogance and hubris as well as hypocrisy. There is no label however to put on the quote about the “ruthless occupiers”. It’s in a class by itself. The ruthless occupiers he is referring to are the surviving natives of the USA shock-and-awe war of aggression. These victims have, says the representative of a state with over 700 military bases throughout the world, “overtly threatened to take their threat around the globe”. If the natives are occupiers, what are the Americans? According to John, as expressed at the end of his remarks, they are champions of “the universal values of decency and civility, and knowledge and reason and law.”
Are you barfing of laughing? BTW, John does speak the truth at one point, by mistake. “We have to intensify our effort to defend violence in Nigeria”.
I hope I didn’t give you the wrong impression of Mr. Kerry. Despite his astonishing proficiency in arrogance, hubris and hypocrisy, he’s not half as accomplished as his boss.

    I have to wonder, does Kerry himself believe the mish-mush in his remarks? I am shaking my head in disgust.

      We can’t know what Kerry believes, but I think he knows. His speech was probably guidelines for the other delegates to use when talking to their own citizens.
