John Kerry Claims Charlie Hebdo Massacre Had A “Rationale”

We all know Secretary of State John Kerry’s foreign policies when it comes to France-remember James Taylor and the hug as the apology for not attending the march for solidarity?

After the apology, the song,(and the hug) earlier this year, John Kerry attempted to contrast the Charlie Hebdo attacks with the terror attacks in Paris this past week stating yesterday that the attacks on Charlie Hebdo back in January were “different”:

“In the last days, obviously, that has been particularly put to the test. There’s something different about what happened from Charlie Hebdo, and I think everybody would feel that. There was a sort of particularized focus and perhaps even a legitimacy in terms of – not a legitimacy, but a rationale that you could attach yourself to somehow and say, okay, they’re really angry because of this and that.”

Did we hear the word “different”? Were “legitimate” and “rationale” uttered? Yes, I think they were.

Whether the death toll is 12 or 20 or 130, is a terror attack different-err-legitimate-um, I mean, is there a “rationale” behind it? What will be the “rationale” for future terror attacks here or abroad? If cartoonists upset a terrorist or two, by Kerry’s “rationale”, what else is an acceptable trigger for a terrorist attack? Perhaps a group of people praying (not to Allah) would be enough to set off a terror attack? Perhaps a group of children saying the Pledge of Allegiance? Although Kerry called the Charlie Hebdo attacks a “vicious act of violence”, he now says these “vicious acts of violence” were legitimate and that there was a rationale behind them? Perhaps we Americans can deliver James Taylor on a silver platter singing one of his lesser-known tunes to John Kerry: “Don’t Talk Now”.

    If I were granted one wish it would be that, at least for a day, everyone could be as smart as they think they are. John Kerry reminded me of that wish today.

    The end of Kerry’s statement is even better:

    “This Friday was absolutely indiscriminate. It wasn’t to aggrieve one particular sense of wrong. It was to terrorize people.”

    Gee, ya think? What a blithering idiot. No wonder our foreign policy is in shambles.

  • Appalled By The World says:

    I don’t care about the rationale of the enemy-I want the enemy to be stopped from being able to carry out any attacks and if they do happen I want the heads of those responsible on a pike. The whole point of a government is to defend its people from this sort of thing, not to try to empathize with the enemy. That’s why the entire Hussein Obama regime is among the absolute worst in history if not THE worst-it basically condones attacks on its citizens.

    I read this article on Breitbart today: ( and underneath one of the comments, someone (Mr. Stewey Eoin) wrote this: (Later cited as having been originally written by a Faisal Saeed al Mutar.) I thought it was brillant.

    It must be incredibly frustrating as an Islamic terrorist not to have your views and motives taken seriously by the societies you terrorize, even after you have explicitly and repeatedly stated them. Even worse, those on the regressive left, in their endless capacity for masochism and self-loathing, have attempted to shift blame inwardly on themselves, denying the terrorists even the satisfaction of claiming responsibility.

    It’s like a bad Monty Python sketch:

    “We did this because our holy texts exhort us to to do it.”

    “No you didn’t.”

    “Wait, what? Yes we did…”

    “No, this has nothing to do with religion. You guys are just using religion as a front for social and geopolitical reasons.”

    “WHAT!? Did you even read our official statement? We give explicit Quranic justification. This is jihad, a holy crusade against pagans, blasphemers, and disbelievers.”

    “No, this is definitely not a Muslim thing. You guys are not true Muslims, and you defame a great religion by saying so.”

    “Huh!? Who are you to tell us we’re not true Muslims!? Islam is literally at the core of everything we do, and we have implemented the truest most literal and honest interpretation of its founding texts. It is our very reason for being.”

    “Nope. We created you. We installed a social and economic system that alienates and disenfranchises you, and that’s why you did this. We’re sorry.”

    “What? Why are you apologizing? We just slaughtered you mercilessly in the streets. We targeted unwitting civilians – disenfranchisement doesn’t even enter into it!”

    “Listen, it’s our fault. We don’t blame you for feeling unwelcome and lashing out.”

    “Seriously, stop taking credit for this! We worked really hard to pull this off, and we’re not going to let you take it away from us.”

    “No, we nourished your extremism. We accept full blame.”

    “OMG, how many people do we have to kill around here to finally get our message across?”

    So true. Jihadists proudly claim their attacks. Yet we have administration who pussyfoots around and says things like “we’re not sure yet”, “we need to be careful and not jump to conclusions”, or “this attack was different from THAT attack because THAT attack had reasoning or rationale while this one? Well…we can’t quite figure out WHY this attack happened and we can’t pin it on Islamic Terrorism because that would be Islamophobic….” I hate to say this…but doesn’t catering to the big, scary Jihadists in the common left bubble of “we need to be smart, provide reasoning before attack” and claiming “we brought this on ourselves and it (the attack) is somewhat warranted” MORE Islamophobic than acknowledging this is happening and accepting WHO is responsible? It’s like a judge in a rape trial saying a woman deserved to be raped because she wore a short skirt! “We deserved it because we’re flying our flag…” What?! All the while, the radicals are like “No, WE DID IT…” It’s like the bully on the school yard at recess who keeps beating up one certain kid. Proud of his/her accomplishments and planning on doing it again as long as the other child remains cowering in a corner in fear and denial. I was that kid in elementary school (the one who got bullied). You know what I finally did one day after a whole chunk of hair was pulled out of my head? I walked up, tapped her on the shoulder when she didn’t expect it and slugged her as hard as I could! Boom. She never touched me again! Simple elementary school war tactics…but these brainy types can’t seem to figure that out. (Disclaimer: I’m not endorsing kiddos beating one another up at recess.)
