Yesterday the United States dropped the Mother of All Bombs on ISIS tunnels in Afghanistan.
Twenty-one thousand pounds of boom.
Leftists, of course, are apoplectic over it.
What are we doing killing the enemy?!
Celebrities were busy tweeting out their insipid “Only love can triumph” inanity.
And that noted military expert Linda Sarsour added her own spin. It’s so much stupid in one tweet, it deserves the Homer Face/Palm treatment:
We can’t bomb away a barbaric ideology?
I wanted to get confirmation on this from Adolf Hitler and Imperial Japan, but neither were available for comment.
It’s absolutely amazing how some people can reach maximum stupid when they only 140 characters to work with.
Well, we all have to be good at something.
To tell you the truth, I never quite understood the logic behind the argument “By killing terrorists we make more terrorists.”
What are they? The men from the Matrix?
And what the hell would Linda Sarsour know about it?
She’s a Muslim, after all.
And we’ve been told countless times that terrorism has nothing to do with Muslims. So what makes her an expert on how to rid the world of this barbaric Islamic ideology?
Leftists have never really understood the concept of Victory.
For them, if you go to war, you certainly shouldn’t be trying to defeat your enemy or, you know, win the war.
That’s not fair!
But this idea that trying to defeat the terrorists will only make more terrorists never made a lick of sense to me.
Back in November 2015, in my column Everyone loves a winner, I wrote:
You know what draws “folks” to ISIS? To terrorism in general?
Is it lack of a job?
Is it the US refusing to accept refugees?
Not even a little.
Is it people using the term “radical Islamic terror?”
So what draws “folks” to ISIS?
Well, for one thing, the fact that ISIS is making the single greatest superpower on the planet look like a bunch of losers.
Yup. No doubt about it. Winning is the best recruiting tool in the history of the universe.
People always want to join the winning team.
And people always cheer the winning team.
In fact, people are drawn to winning like Bill Clinton is drawn to buxom blonds named Kandi.
Young people aren’t drawn to ISIS because they lack jobs. They’re drawn to ISIS because ISIS is looking like a winner.
The truth is, terrorism grew by leaps and bounds during the eight years Barack Hussein Obama was President.
And why wouldn’t it?
Young men saw a band of vicious crazies render the United States of America impotent. Under Obama we became a fearful, timid, accommodating country unwilling to defend itself or its allies. We busily made excuses for the enemy — if we even bothered to admit they existed at all.
And we just couldn’t stop appeasing them.
Refusing to fight a war with the objective of winning the war made America look weak.
And it made the terrorists look strong.
What young man steeped in radical Islamic ideology wouldn’t want to join a group that seemed to be knocking America back on its heels?
But with one well-placed twenty-one thousand pound boom, America isn’t looking so timid anymore.
A bully can always find other bullies to join him in a brawl when the opponent is afraid to fight back.
But when the opponent kicks the bully’s ass, suddenly, he finds himself standing alone.
Personally, I don’t know why anybody would take anything Linda Sarsour says as remotely serious or worthwhile.
You’d have to be deeply naïve and crazy stupid.
You know, like this guy:
