Funny, sarcastic, and a statement that rings true to a large plurality (33 – 40% at this time) of the US populace and admitted to being plausible by another, smaller number of us to this day. Of course, in actuality, those numbers may be quite a bit higher. Many of the sorts that voted for Biden might well believe as well that he didn’t legitimately win the 2020 election. They just don’t care as long as President Trump was ousted.
The above is the Gods’ honest truth. Biden is not responsible for the fiasco of our pull-out from Afghanistan and the Taliban’s resumption of control of that region; all the Democrats who, through voting or other means, installed that senile, deranged fool as POTUS are.
It was to anyone with any knowledge of the peoples of that region of shitholes a foregone conclusion that the moment the leaders of the Taliban knew that President Trump was forced from office they would abandon any semblance of complying with the terms of the change of power and retake Afghanistan by swift and overwhelming force. It was similarly a foregone conclusion that the Taliban would immediately commit various and sundry atrocities as part of this reconquista of the Graveyard of Empires. President Trump – the man, not any policies or plans set in place through the guidance of his cabinet – was the sole force holding the Taliban in check during this changeover.
Besides, how can we hold Biden responsible for anything when it’s so blatantly obvious that he’s mentally incompetent and not really involved in the actual duties of the President?
But… Some Simple Context
Firstly, the Taliban retaking control of Afghanistan was going to happen and was going to happen now regardless of who is POTUS. President Trump’s team already negotiated that as part of the President’s pledge to the American people to end our “Forever Wars.” So, Biden can’t be held responsible for any of that.
Secondly, some amount of atrocities were always going to be part of that regime change. Under President Trump, they would have been more subdued and handled less publicly, and some might have been delayed until the end of Trump’s second term, but they were always going to happen. So, again, Biden can’t be held responsible for any of that Nobody can; that sort of thing is part of the Afghans’ culture.
Third and finally, the fiasco that has been our pullout from Kabul is neither strange nor unexpected, given how fast Afghanistan “fell” to the Taliban. Nothing within that context is particularly odd or extreme. It looks very much like the other times the US military and intelligence apparatuses have had to withdraw from a theater with some level of haste. So too, to our shame, is the lack of support and extraction for our in-theater, indigenous assets.
So no. I don’t, and I don’t believe anyone should hold Biden responsible for what is happening in Afghanistan right now any more than I would hold him responsible for drooling on- or soiling himself. One and all need to show a certain level of respect to the aged and mentally infirm. Also, as I’ve written above, I don’t see that much to hold anyone accountable for in this situation.
The only ones I feel are responsible for this debacle are those who placed Biden in office. And, even then, I can’t see where they’re responsible for anything other than the specific timing of it and the overtness of the purge going on now in Afghanistan.
Funny but true in the minds of 10s of millions (approx. 115 million in point of fact) of Americans – two unrelated and extremely geographically separated cryptids telling you to “fuck off” has an equal to- or greater Confidence Level and Interval than Joe Biden having actually and legally won the 2020 election for POTUS. I.e., neither seems particularly believable to most of those Americans.
Unsurprisingly, the response by the sorts who possess that firmly held belief that “Creepy Uncle Joe” did win the 2020 election fair and square is also quite similar to the reaction of most people to those who believe in Bigfoot and the Loch Ness Monster.
Yeah, we live in interesting times.
Yeah, I agree with Rep. Lauren Boebert (R CO-3). President Trump may be crass and may have, at some times in his past, have made some fairly crude sexual comments, but he’s never been called “Creepy Uncle Donald” or “Donald ‘Bad Hands’ Trump.” So yeah, I too miss those apparently halcyon days when the man installed in the White House didn’t single out six-year-olds and compliment their legs while giving speeches.
Ah yes; the border, then and now – with then being 2020 and now being 2021. If one makes the mistake of lending unearned credence to the Democrats’ lamestream media, one would likely believe that things are quite different. Of course, one would be wrong to do so. The situation surrounding the quarantining and processing of the hordes of Central and South American invaders is almost exactly the same now as it was then. Indeed, it has changed very little overall since Obama had the “processing centers” created during his tenure in the White House.
No; the only thing that has objectively and significantly changed is who is POTUS. But then, that is sufficient unto itself for the media to completely change their narrative and “reporting” of the border crisis, its fallout, and its human toll. When Donald Trump was POTUS, how his administration handled the illegal aliens was “horrific,” “abominable, and “racist.” But, now that Biden has been installed in the White House, everything his regime does is copacetic or just a sad fact of “properly” handling the influx of “refugees,” even though nothing of substance has changed.
Of course, the media’s behavior now is also essentially the same as it was when Obama’s regime set up the camps at the southern border in the first place. Hellfire! back then, what passes for journalists these days even defended or remained silent upon his regime’s handing unaccompanied minors over to human traffickers!
But then, even this exuberance of bias and lying is the same as always in these degenerate times. The Dems’ propaganda corps reports based upon who is doing something, not what is being done.
