MILLINOCKET, Maine, August 18, 2013 – Who knew a rodeo clown could dominate a news cycle? He mocked the President, got fired and apologies were flying all around. Days later we are still talking about it.
Was it freedom of speech, a joke, or racism? This is a de-mock-racy, isn’t it?
John Kerry, the Secretary-of-State-in-training is learning all about the use of words. He may have literally started a firestorm when he seemingly supported Egypt’s military by declaring that they were “restoring democracy.”
At the time, John McCain and Lindsey Graham were on the ground in Egypt, hoping to avoid the violence and bloodshed that subsequently occurred. McCain suggested that Egypt’s military saw Kerry’s statement as “a green light to take whatever action necessary to put down any opposition.”
About the carnage in Egypt, the President gave an eight-minute statement from his vacation in Martha’s Vineyard.
Looks like America’s military won’t get to play war games with Egypt’s military until they stop making war on their own citizens. That should teach them a thing or two about how to “play nice” in the world.
