It's time to play America's fastest growing game show sensation, "Moron or Traitor."
It's a tough challenge because this administration has plenty of both. So does a radicalized Democratic Party leaping into insanity. A Democratic candidate was recently forced to drop out for tweeting that ISIS isn't evil.
But don't look for Kerry to quit over his suggestion that the ISIS massacre of Charlie Hebdo artists and writers (not to mention, as his boss put it, some random (Jewish) folks in a deli)
There’s something different about what happened from Charlie Hebdo, and I think everybody would feel that. There was a sort of particularized focus and perhaps even a legitimacy in terms of – not a legitimacy, but a rationale that you could attach yourself to somehow and say, okay, they’re really angry because of this and that. This Friday was absolutely indiscriminate. It wasn’t to aggrieve one particular sense of wrong. It was to terrorize people.
Now you can chalk this up to "moron."
Kerry quickly backtracks on the "legitimacy" line (though it's a telling Freudian slip) and appears to be trying to express the incoherent leftist bafflement at ISIS terror not fitting neatly into a "protest against oppression" box. You see this same attitude often enough on the left.
