The Squad Has A Sad Over Soleimani

The Squad Has A Sad Over Soleimani

The Squad Has A Sad Over Soleimani

The general rule is that if the Squad is upset over something, then something good for America probably just happened.

So naturally, when the news broke that Iran’s terror mastermind Qasem Soleimani assumed room temperature, the Squad reacted exactly the way you would assume they would. Which is to say, ORANGE MAN BAD, Iran good, why is America so mean, we voted to impeach Trump so why does he still get to do stuff, blah blah blah.

Honestly, their reactions would be comical if it wasn’t so dangerous to have elected members of Congress spewing this crap. Let’s start with Ilhan Omar.


Psssst, Ilhan… please cite your “congressional authority” to stop Donald Trump from legitimately waging war in a combat zone. There seems to be a lot of angst right now over the targeting of Soleimani, but none on the left seem to care that a known terror leader is just hanging around in Baghdad? You know, Iranians take vacations all the time in… Iraq. Sure. It’s also very amusing that Omar thinks she has the power to do anything about it from her position in the House. How cute.

The next member of the Squad with an overinflated sense of her own superiority is Rashida Tlaib.


Funny, did Congress authorize war when the Obama administration sent troops back to Iraq in 2014 at the request of their government, or the additional forces that arrived afterward? Weird, I don’t think Congress did anything but approve the funding. Should we be concerned about Iran escalating in the region? Absolutely, even though I think we should be more concerned about Iran activating terror cells to wreak havoc on the West that can’t be directly conncected back to them. But again, I’m missing the part where Democrats were freaking out over the Obama drone strikes because they might have started “another unnecessary war.”

Ayanna Pressley is going with the “resist we much” angle.


Did they all text each other to coordinate this? It actually sounds like the directive went out to all the Democrats to hammer the same “we don’t want a war” and “Congress has the authoritah” talking points – especially when you look at Nancy Pelosi’s comments. Is anyone on the Democrat side of the aisle allowed to have an original, expressed thought these days? For all their claims of “resistance” and “girl power” and “independence” and “radicalism,” the Squad seems to be falling into line like obedient little sheep in this instance.

The only member of the Squad to have not given her own hot take/parroted talking points on Twitter is the brain trust of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, which proves that she’s either smarter than the rest of the Squad, or she forgot to charge her phone last night and doesn’t know how to log in to Twitter from a laptop. It’s not like AOC to let her Squad sisters have all the fun on Twitter without her, so I’m sure she’ll say something completely predictable and inane fairly soon.

But really, did we expect anything different from the members of the Squad? It’s more frightening that the Democrats are so relentlessly invested in the “anything the Orange Man does is BAD” narrative – even though they would be applauding their little fingers off if Obama had launched that drone strike – that they’ve blinded themselves to an enemy who really doesn’t care who is in charge over here, they just want us dead.

We should all be wary about the next moves by Iran, but we should never apologize for taking a very evil monster out of the equation.

    It’s called the power of the purse strings. And yes, it is considered a legitimate (if idiotic in this case) use of political capital.

    did Congress authorize war when…
    Pretty sure everyone assumed he was operating under the AUMF for Iraq from 2002.
    Syria was justified under the post-9/11 AUMF against Al Qaeda and their fellow a*holes.

    because he believes it will help his re-election
    This is where the issue lies. It’s a huge bit of projection, because that’s the only reason they do ANYTHING. To them, there is honestly no one – except us rube voters out in flyover land – who would actually do something like this for a reason as gauche as patriotism or actual defense of the nation and her interests. It’s all a game to them, moving pieces around, making deals.

    we must deescalate
    The word you’re looking for, miss, is “surrender”. Because that’s what you’re advocating.

    I think it’s more that the ‘principles’ both Dem groups espouse simply line up together. The Squad and their idiotic sycophants have learned from their academic indoctrination that War Is Bad, and a virtuous country must avoid it. The older Dems have been preaching unilateral disarmament for decades. And, now, they get to use those ‘principles’ to beat up on Trump.
    The main difference is folks like The Squad might actually believe their own bulls**t. I doubt Pelosi and others are un-cynical enough to do so.

    she forgot to charge her phone last night
    Holy crap, you’re right! Looking down the Twitchy page, and not a single pic of Donkey-Chompers as I type this!

    QFT.

    The big question: If the SHTF and Iran does something that requires us to actually go into combat against them…
    Are there enough blooded, courageous, intelligent strategists at the right levels of the Pentagon to actually prosecute the war?
    Or, did 0bama purge them all?

    “The Occupant”? This is not the language of a member of congress. This is the language used my a college radical.

    Pelosi, get you house in order!

  • Joe R. says:

    I think the squad should liaise AS MUCH AS HUMANLY POSSIBLE with Esmayeel Qaani. Wear him like underwear for the next ~ 6 mos.

    jk
    HOWEVER,
    The squad can #NaCL. And they should not delay in getting that accomplished.

  • askeptic says:

    When the Founders created a tripartite sharing of power, but designated the President as CEO & CiC, they had just experienced the interjection by Members of the Continental Congress with the conduct of the War For Independence, and the sometimes disastrous results of that interference.
    Congress has the Power of the Purse (which they wield erratically), and that’s as much influence they should have over the conduct of the military in undertaking the defense of the nation.

  • Skillyboo says:

    Judging by all the communists, er, democrats outrage over Soleimani’s death it makes one believe they prefer seeing Americans continue to die instead.

  • Zoopy says:

    ya know if Trump WAS a tyrant he would have already rounded up all these poltroons that are wailing about the demise of their evil hero and new demoKKKrat voter and would now being disposing of them.

  • Charles N. Steele says:

    More evidence that “the squad” is not simply political opponents but enemies of the United States. The invasion of the U.S. Embassy was invasion of U.S. territory.

  • CaptDMO says:

    A few days ago “Some people said something”
    But what difference, at this point, does it make?

  • […] after Thursday’s actions you can add to that unlimited support for Iranian thugs. Yeah, I can really see that working […]

  • Mike says:

    It’s so cute when Democrats appear to show some concern about the Constitution. You know, the Constitution that they would overthrown, given the chance.

  • Hate_me says:

    I agree with the content, just a little nitpick…

    Many Iranians do vacation in Iraq. Two of the most sacred Shi’a pilgrimage sites are in Najaf and Karbala.
