The Media/Left’s most Churchillian Moment

As I watched things from the left media like this:

and this

and this

and of course this

Old friend Neo is a tad upset at these developments and so was I, then it hit me, there is one word that can be used to describe the reaction of the professional and media left to the successful raid to kill the head of ISIS

Churchillian

In fact this may be the most Churchillian thing thing the left has done in decades. Why? To understand my argument you have to remember that to the left Trump is Hitler, he’s Goebbles etc etc etc.

And if there is one thing that we all know about Sir Winston, is that as long as you are fighting Hitler you get a favorable reference, I quote:

“If Hitler invaded hell I would make at least a favorable reference to the devil in the House of Commons.”

So it’s simple logic

  • Churchill makes favorable references to those who Hitler attacks
  • Trump = Hitler
  • Trump attacks Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi
  • Media makes favorable references to Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi
  • Media = Churchill

It’s a simple rational deduction.

I predict this is the last Churchillian thing that the left will ever do.

I’m Old Enough to Remember When Troops Out of Syria Meant the Return of ISIS…

…and that every single person in media and many in congress were saying the same thing.

And if you were born two weeks ago you might remember it too.

At the time I wasn’t all that convinced it was the right move but said the following:

It’s possible that this is just part of the standard Trump doctrine of disengagement when possible, it’s also possible that there is a bigger deal that has been made concerning Turkey that I’m unaware of (possibly concerning Israel and a deal there) but we really don’t know. My gut says it’s the wrong move but Potus has played a pretty good hand so far so I’m going to see how the cards fall before I go insane over it.

I’m half wondering if President Trump was counting on the ISIS leadership buying all the propaganda of the left about running away and leaving him a free hand and stuck his head out. In fact I’ve got the livestream of NBC on right now and they’re still playing that line that the pullout is a betrayal as they await the president’s live announcement. They’re also trying to stress the idea that all of this started under Obama.

The spin is a great contrast to the actual announcement which not only stressed that

  1. No US casualties (update 2 minor wounds) other than one Dog who was hurt
  2. Baghdadi took three kids as human shields when he ran away and blew up the three kids with him.
  3. Lots of ISIS causalities and prisoners taken
  4. Lots of intelligence taken
  5. Mentioned the names of ISIS victims when making this announcements and stressed the atrocities of ISIS
  6. Thanked just about everyone from the Kurds, Russia, Iraq and Turks for help.
  7. Thanked the troops and generals and the pros involved in the operation

The President is now taking questions on the details of what is going on. He’s noting that the world should see the video to see how he died like a dog and a coward.

The media (and SNL who believe it or not had a skit about Trump bringing jobs back to ISIS going on live as the news broke) are hardest hit as it shatters every single narrative we’ve been seeing for weeks.

I suspect the MSM will leave this story as fast as they can, I suspect the president won’t allow it.

Update: That didn’t take long

however some on the left are saying the right thing

If they are smart other Dems will take notes here.

Update 2: this tweet didn’t age well

The president stopped talking about 10:10 forcing me to a later mass today, turned on CNN and apparently the President didn’t thank the kurds loudly enough for them and thanked the Russians too loudly

Bad news for the impeachment meme weekend planned on all the networks.
