The Evil Mind of John Kerry
The American Spectator ^ | August 1, 2014 | Jeffrey Lord

Posted on 08/01/2014 2:39:51 AM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife

".....From the moment he burst on the national scene in 1971 as a young Vietnam vet, his family connections and anti-war views landing him a spot testifying before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, right straight through to today as the U.S. Secretary of State, Kerry has demonstrated repeatedly that he is unable to grasp not only serious threats to the United States and the larger world as well.

What has been on display again and again in Kerry’s public career is a tone-deafness when it comes to the manifestation of evil. Unless, of course, in the style of that old comic strip character Pogo, he has met the enemy and he is us.

Famously in that televised 1971 testimony (seen here) Kerry attacked his fellow vets for “cutting off ears” and acting like “Genghis Khan.” He would pay a serious political price for this decades later when he ran for president and some of his still-infuriated fellow Vietnam vets came out to sink his White House bid. But there was more in that long ago testimony than imputing terrible deeds to U.S. soldiers. Said young Mr. Kerry of his view of the world in his testimony to an appreciative audience of liberal senators and anti-war protestors:...

...Now the Israeli media is furious with John Kerry. Earlier this week Politico pulled together a sampling of Israeli media comment about Kerry. Among other things the Israeli press is saying “Kerry’s mistakes are embarrassing. … Kerry just doesn’t understand who’s playing against whom in the Wild Mideast” (Times of Israel), that Kerry (and Obama) “did not understand the depth of the cynicism and cruelty of the factors that they are dealing with?” (Maariv), Kerry is like a “blind person” and should be fired because he is “pathetic and confused” (Maariv).

The main problem is that he’s not evil, just venal and closed off from the realities of the world as it is. He’s supposed to have his finger on the pulse of the world and yet, he’s never really been outside of the East Coast, something that is crippling. Around the world, most foreign secretaries are experienced in travel and work/education abroad.

In Savannah they have a special cemetery for lawyers, they are not buried with the rest because they were considered scums.

Kerry is a fake. He doesn’t come from wealth his aunt paid his tuition, yet he lives like he comes from old money. He screwed his first wife into giving into giving him a huge settlement to get rid of him. Then along comes Tereza who enabled him to buy a nine million dollar yacht and pretend he can can hob-nob with his betters. But he is still a joke and a dumb laughingstock.

Conservatives do believe in evil, and liberals either no longer do or they don't wish to allow the idea of evil to be explicit in our politics.
Liberals believe in evil, too: Everybody who resists them must be evil in their mind, since they are the forces of goodness, and only evil would resist goodness!

When you’re that wrong about anything good that many times it only leads to one conclusion.

Yeah; I believe we’ll hear of how Fonda’s grave will be stained irrevocably by a bunch of troops who will sneak into the graveyard.

None of that matters...... The Israelis just don’t understand. The force driving Lurch is pacifism. There must be no war, no hostile action. War is obsolete today. He is as committed to pacifism as are the Hamas wacko wildly shooting rockets to kill on a genocidal scale.

Hard core liberals, of which Kerry is one of the most devout, cannot believe that "evil" exists because that would force the admission that "good" exists.

And that would lead to the admission that there are forces of "good" and "evil" and that would lead to a discussion of the existence of values and moral standards and that would lead to an re-evaluation of moral relativism on which liberalism is based.

And all the above would lead to the possibility that there is a God and *gasp* there is a Satan...and that liberalism, by denying God, is intrisically on the side of Satan.

I disagree. He is evil, as demonsstrated by his actions, the only thing that really counts.

Kerry bad caused tremendous heartache in his lifetime. He was involved in 2 million Cambodians dying thousands of our vets being dishonored and opening the door to Watergate.

He and his liberal ilk are evil.

The most telling comment about John Forbes Kerry came from a long-time, highly successful Massachusetts state pol.

He said “The good Senator’s initials are J.F.K. - which stands for `Just For Kerry`.”
