Today’s entry on the common theme of the left and their problem with truth comes from Morning Joe
Item: On Morning Joe yesterday I saw the sudden post-election discovery of Benghazi (but not Senator Kelly Ayotte who Willie Geist refers to as “others”) in the context of the following arguments:
1. It is OK to send out a member of the administration to say something they know is false or as a dupe who doesn’t know they are sending out false information. (Unlike Iraq for example where the administration and every intelligence agency in the world believed what they were saying was true)
2. Questioning a black woman like Susan Rice is bad optics and racism (unlike questioning a black woman like Condi Rice which is simply asking questions to power plus she doesn’t count as black because she is republican).
3. It is foolish to demand accountability because such a demand is based on facts and accountability rather than deferring to a mandate of racial or sexual politics.
Note that the death of
three four Americans is not the issue, the administration sending out a person before the election to deceive is not the issue, no it is the idea that two of the three Senators who have critiqued said person are white men (we’ll ignore female Senator in the group) and she is a black woman and because she is a black woman the standards of truth and honesty do not apply here.
In other words the offense here is against Truth, but well discuss more on that tomorrow.
Update: Should have said four dead Americans, corrected, thanks.
