Marie Harf Wonders When America Was Ever Great. [VIDEO]

Fox News’s Marie Harf is the embodiment of a Dumb Blonde joke. Now I apologize to any blondes out there who are sick of hearing those gags.

But when you go on national television and can’t think of when America was great because of. . . credit card restrictions?

Yes, Marie Harf went there.

She appeared on Fox News “America’s Newsroom” on Tuesday morning while the panel was discussing NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s comment that America “was never that great.”

Marie Harf said that Cuomo certainly “flubbed what he was trying to do.” And then she went Full Stupid with this:

“But I keep asking President Trump supporters, when is he referring to when America was great? When I couldn’t vote? When I couldn’t get a credit card without my husband?”

So America wasn’t great when women “couldn’t vote” or “get a credit card” without their husbands. Let that sink in.

Dear readers, here we have on full display the progressive mindset: America is great only when she makes life ideal, especially for designated victims. And if she doesn’t, then America is not great.

Marie Harf mindset

Whatever happened to the citizens who cheered the words of a Democrat president who told America “ask not what your country can do for you…”?

No, America is not perfect, and she never has been. No serious person would claim perfection. But America is the most grand of all nations because her liberty allows her people to rise above their circumstances, even when those circumstances come from repression. America’s free people make America great.

Since Harf was talking about not being able to vote, here’s when heroic women endured grave suffering in order to obtain their rights to vote. The freedom to speak gave them the ability to do great things — like earn American women the vote. They helped make America great.

What about the Tuskegee Airmen, who rose above racial discrimination during World War II to became officers and fighter pilots?

Or those Japanese-American citizens who found themselves in internment camps during World War II? Those among them who were Kibei  — Americans who traveled to Japan for their education and then came back to the United States — served as translators for the Military Intelligence Service during the war. They served their nation despite prejudice, and they made America great, too.

I could go on and on with other examples of Americans like these. You probably could, too. In fact, you may have family members who overcame all sorts of barriers to become great people in their own right. It’s the people who make America magnificent, not some massive government that hands out favors like it’s Halloween.

Perhaps Marie Harf should take her beloved credit card and go shopping for books about Americans such as these — Americans who can inspire us all. Maybe then she’ll find out that even with all her warts, America has always been great.

    Oh, Kim, it’s even worse than you say. Though making the perfect the enemy of the good is a big part of it, note they’re saying America was never great, because it at one time had certain faults. By that standard, no nation can ever be great because it at one time had some faults (according to our post-modern thinking).

    When I couldn’t vote?
    Arguably, Marie, America is worse off because you can vote. You’re an idiot and a socialist simp. Your mere existence on the bell curve pulls all other women to the left.

    America’s free people make America great.
    Sing it, sister!

    It’s the people who make America magnificent
    Yep. It’s not the country in and of itself – except where that country is not defined so much by borders as by an attitude and ideals.

    Marie needs to take an extended vacation to Venezuela, Sudan, Somalia, Dubai, Vietnam, etc. Then maybe she can tell us how great America is and maybe she’d even be grateful to be back.

  • John C. says:

    Ironically, the Tuskegee Airmen were allowed to form in order to prove that blacks were unable to fight in a modern mechanized war, just as the Buffalo Soldiers had been formed to show that blacks could not make effective soldiers. In both cases they showed that they were as good, or better, than whites as soldiers.

  • Nina says:

    Example 1: Nellie Tayloe Ross was appointed first and then elected as FIRST woman Governor our country had. Women were also given right to vote in that same state. WYOMING.

    Example 2: Our race to the moon

    Example 3 & 4: WWI and WWII – The Greatest Generation

    Example 5: George Washington Carver

    Example 6: Thomas Edison and Alexander Graham Bell

    But Marie can’t seem to figure out when America/Americans were ever great. SMDH

    Want me to go on?

  • Dietrich says:

    The Navajo Code Talkers were/are among the finest Americans who ever lived!

  • Jim says:

    To quote a famous sage [Bugs Bunny]: this woman is a real maroon!

    The World owes the USA gratitude for its role in the two world wars last century and for always being ready to assist other countries in their time of need. Instead this self-centred whining blond complains about voting and credit cards. Obviously the notion of helping others, as JFK famously stated, is beyond her.
