If someone told you that the world’s most wanted terrorist, the despicable leader of ISIS Baghdadi had been killed by U.S. Special Forces after a raid approved by President Trump, you’d probably assume that the entire country would be overjoyed, right? That for at least one day the country could come together to celebrate the death of such a heinous individual who’d brought so much death, destruction and despair to so many and would make President Trump’s opponents, however strident, at least unite over that. Unfortunately, you’d be wrong. And worse, not only did the Leftists and Never-Trumpers not pause to appreciate it, they booed him (at the World Series); compared him to ISIS on CNN and Saddam Hussein on MSNBC; and some actually took the side of the terrorist! We are in trouble America, serious trouble.
Their hatred for Trump is so intense it supersedes all else, causing a mental deficiency which makes seemingly sane people side against an American President and with someone who oversaw some of the most brutal atrocities seen in a generation.
From beheadings and drownings to burning people alive, from sex slavery of women and children to the execution of gays – much of it on camera – ISIS took terror to another level, making slick recruiting videos and spreading them over the Internet.
And what’s perhaps worst of all is that people from all over the world went to go fight for Baghdadi, in hopes of establishing an Islamic Caliphate, not in spite of the videos, but because of them. Young girls left their homes to go marry and have children with the ISIS fighters, some participating in the sex enslavement of other women and even murder. It was said of ISIS as a group that they were so bad even Al Qaeda didn’t want anything to do with them. Baghdadi was their leader. He died when he detonated a suicide vest after being cornered in a tunnel by Delta Forces, including a K-9 hero.
It’s a glorious day when such an evil person is stopped. Perhaps it would have been good to have him alive so we could interrogate him and get information, but we’ll get that anyway. And I’m quite ok with this barbarian of the ‘Religion of Pieces’ being in pieces himself. Especially since one of the ways they were able to identify him was by DNA on his dirty underwear (please give a special medal to the person who had to do that test! Yikes!). That information will be in the news worldwide, in addition to Trump’s scathing comments on him having died ‘after running into a dead end tunnel, whimpering and crying and screaming all the way.
He died like a dog. He died like a coward.’ It’s embarrassing and Trump knew exactly what he was doing by saying it this way. He wanted to emphasize how cowardly and shameful these people are, and to deter people from being inspired by them. He also knows Muslims don’t like dogs, so emphasizing the participation of the hero K-9 but saying Baghdadi ‘died like a dog’ is a slight that illustrates what a p*ssy he was. Just sayin.
Trump showed that he’s a strong leader who’s unapologetically interested in avenging those who would do his citizens harm. It was an extremely risky mission and had it gone bad it would’ve been all on his shoulders and would’ve been politically devastating. He was willing to take the risk not only because it was the right thing to do (apparently he’d been hounding his military and Intel people about it since he got in office), but because he had faith and confidence in the military – he’s building it back up and retuning sane Rules of Engagement. It also shows he has trust in his Intel people, which means that he must’ve cleaned out the rif-raff from the previous administration. (And just a reminder, though he’s now talking smack about Trump, Sleepy Creepy Joe Biden didn’t want to do the Bin Laden raid.)
And it was positively brilliant that he didn’t tell Democrats in advance, something which Kayla Mueller’s father, though hesitant to comment on politics per se, said with regard to President Trump’s having hid the raid from the Democrats, per the Washington Examiner: “I stand with Mr. Trump on this, the president,” Carl Mueller said. “I came up with a simple formula, and I ask people to honestly answer the question that I raise, given all the leaks that come out of D.C. constantly, especially in the Trump administration. If you had the fate of 100 men on your shoulders — and if you made the wrong move, those men could lose their lives — if you had to make the call, how many people would you tell about this raid? If there happened to be a leak, they could all die, he said. “He did the right thing. He was protecting those soldiers.” Of course it infuriated Democrats they weren’t told in advance, but guess what? It wasn’t leaked! But how depressing the President couldn’t trust the opposing party not to endanger our Soldiers just to spite him!
Sadly, and sickening, was how blatant the Fake News Media was in their inability to attribute the atrocities to Baghdadi in an effort to minimize the amazing victory for President Trump. The ‘Democracy Dies in Darkness’ Washington Post actually changed their headline from Its original headline which read, “Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, Islamic State’s ‘terrorist-in-chief,’ dies at 48.” to “Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, austere religious scholar at helm of Islamic State, dies at 48.” It was only after a swift and severe backlash that they ended up changing it the next day to: “Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, extremist leader of Islamic State, dies at 48.” The NYT said the raid succeeded ‘in spite of Trump’, and NPR seemed to be enamored, with reporter Greg Myre saying “He led a movement that we’ve never seen before…This isn’t the end of ISIS, but he was a real leader’. These are the same people who wear Che t-shirts and extol the virtues of Fidel Castro. You just know that in their heart of hearts they probably feel bad Baghdadi had to get killed and Trump’s administration get credit for it.
The raid on Baghdadi put egg on the faces not only on the media but on all of the bed-wetting pearl-clutchers who said his ‘America First’ policy meant he was retreating from the world and making America weaker.
It’s quite the opposite in fact! Not only is he personally a fortress of fortitude, a complete Alpha male among so many effete soft-handed Betas, but he’s showing that America is more than willing to use force when necessary – whether it’s a MOAB in Afghanistan, Tomahawks in Syria or Delta Force warriors in Syria to kill Baghdadi. But that he’s smarter by far than the bureaucrats, pundits, politicians and plaid-wearing think-tankers who’ve been operating (and screwing up) the country’s foreign policy for the past 50 years.
As a businessman, he has both the safety of our troops (and their families) and our resources ever in his mind, and doesn’t want to use either lightly nor lose them foolishly. It also shows just how much both the Left and the Never-Trump Republicans hate Trump more than they love America, so much so that they’re willing to be apologists for someone who beheaded two of our journalists and raped and murdered Kayla Mueller. But instead of golfing like Obama did immediately after announcing James Foley’s beheading, Trump hunted Baghdadi down and killed him. Just one of the many reasons I love him!
America, take notice of who these people are and don’t give these people any more power, they’re destroying the country.
