According to Secretary of State John Kerry, America should give up on national security. In a commencement speech on Friday at Northeastern University, Kerry dictated terms by pronouncing America “learned the toughest lesson of all on 9/11″ that there are “no walls big enough to stop people from anywhere, tens of thousands of miles away, who are determined to take their own lives while they target others.” (link)
Those others targeted, of course, are we the Americans, and according to Kerry there’s nothing we can actually do about it.
We should just give up.
While this was obviously a jab at Republican president presumptive nominee Donald Trump, who Kerry referred to as someone on the level of “sound-bite salesmen” and “carnival barkers,” his sentiment is nonetheless clear: We must lay down our arms and surrender.
Kerry characterizes people who, like Trump, believe they can be victorious in our fight for survival, as a people who think “all they need simply to [do is] climb under the sheets, close their eyes and push the world away.”
While some graduates might have thought they were really being addressed by a statesmen, other surly recognized the words of a political hack. The words of defeatism; capitulation, and rank incompetence.
For any who needed more confirmation, Kerry told them they were “about to graduate into a complex and borderless world.”
Too ‘complex’ for hacks like defeatist Kerry, and President Obama, but, thankfully, not for President Donald J. Trump.
