Over at Powerline, David and Daniel Greenfield have an article: Where is the Outrage?
It opens strong:
Only one man lost his job over Afghanistan. Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller challenged Biden’s incompetent and spineless Joint Chiefs of Staff to take responsibility for their dereliction of duty that led directly to the catastrophe in Afghanistan. Taking responsibility meant resigning. Biden’s military men immediately smeared him as mentally ill and forced him out of the Marines.
For four years, conservatives of a certain stripe cheered and encouraged the military to attack Trump. They considered it part of the normal constitutional order. Now, when a solider dares to criticize Biden for…
Biden is directly responsible for the worst, most humiliating, most dangerous – yet completely avoidable – defeat in the history of American warfare.
…those same conservatives have nothing to say about this man being fired, or, worse, they cheer it on, as the rules get applied to him, while they cheered on others not having the rules apply to them.
The article goes on to attack GOP leadership for their spinelessness. They sure don’t fight for anything of value. I understand why: They never meant it. They are in it for the perks and don’t care about anything as long as they get their goodies.
What I cannot understand, are rank and file Republicans who buy into this nonsense. They can claim to be for America, but it is crap. Any conservative who voted for Biden, who frankly, could not be doing more damage to America than if he were an agent for Xi, can only win back trust if he or she is willing to get outraged at Biden as they were at Trump and his mean tweets.Published in
