Kerry Slams Boko Haram Jihadists For Not Offering...A Health Care Plan

Abubakar Shekau, the leader of Nigerian Islamist militant group Boko Haram, has claimed responsibility for the more than 200 schoolgirls that were abducted two weeks ago and vowed to “sell them in the market.”

After pressure from the international community for the Nigerian government to act, the country’s president has reached out to the U.S., among other countries, for help finding and ensuring the release of the girls.

Secretary of State John Kerry said on a trip to Africa that the U.S. will do all it can to help, and also took the opportunity to slam the jihadists for…not offering a health care plan?

“The kidnapping of hundreds of children by Boko Haram is an unconscionable crime, and we will do everything possible to support the Nigerian government to return these young women to their homes and to hold the perpetrators to justice,” Kerry said in a speech in Ethiopia.

“I will tell you, my friends, I have seen this scourge of terror across the planet, and so have you,” he continued. “They don't offer anything except violence. They don’t offer a health care plan, they don’t offer schools. They don't tell you how to build a nation, they don’t talk about how they will provide jobs. They just tell people, ‘You have to behave the way we tell you to,’ and they will punish you if you don’t.

“Our responsibility and the world’s responsibility is to stand up against that kind if nihilism,” Kerry said.

Boko Haram, which means “Western education is forbidden,” also does not advocate for a minimum wage or equal pay, Mr. Kerry, nor do they care about carbon emissions. Wake up; you are not in the West.

Here's someone who said some Islamist terrorists are good guys doing wonderful things

Senator Patty Murray

[wiki source] In December 2002, while speaking to students at Columbia River High School in Vancouver, Murray made a number of remarks about Osama bin Laden, as she attempted to explain why the US had such problems winning hearts and minds in the Muslim world, and how bin Laden had garnered support among some in the Middle East. Among other things, she had stated that bin Laden has 'been out in these countries for decades, building schools, building roads, building infrastructure, building daycare facilities, building health care facilities, and the people are extremely grateful. He's made their lives better. We have not done that,'"

They don't tell you how to build a nation, they don’t talk about how they will provide jobs. They just tell people, ‘You have to behave the way we tell you to,’ and they will punish you if you don’t.

sounds familiar - as in, LaRaza, the Panthers and the Rainbow Coalition

Now the terrorists Obama and Kerry are doing this at home.

“Senator Patty Murray” A true lightbender.(someone so dense that light bends around her)

I had a former student who was really involved in Democrat politics and worked tirelessly on Murray's campaign. In a candid moment, he told me that she was really "dumb as a post." So I asked him why he wanted her elected. He told me that she'll just do what she is told by leadership.

Hilary was very confused. She thought they were talking about the 1960’s band Procol Harum and wanted to hear them play for the DNC at the 2012 convention. Ya we have the answer. Bill used to enjoy inhaling to their music.

I suspect Kerry is saying these things to draw a comparison between the terrorists of Boko Haram and the terrorists in the Republican Party. After all, Tea Partiers don’t want to spend money on health care of building schools, either.

He thinks he is being clever or subtle, but he is just being John F’n Kerry (who served in Viet Nam)

Well, OK, but I will ask a dangerous question: Just how stupid is this supposed to get?

Desert tortoises don’t provide universal healthcare for their tortoisettes, nor do they build squat little (all on one floor, no doubt) tortoiversities for them, either.
