Well, we didn’t behead al-Baghdadi and leave his body to rot. I’m sure Obama treated Osama bin Laden’s body with respect because he feared Muslims; feared them enough to dedicate the US space program to them, bow before them, send Iran a pallet-full of cash and heap praise on Islam for some made-up contributions to American history.
Compare and contrast the left’s response to the killing of al-Baghdadi and Osama bin Laden (per reports from across the web):
Flashback: Trump Congratulated President Obama Personally on Osama bin Laden Raid . . . I want to personally congratulate President Obama and the men [and] women of the Armed Forces for a job very well done. I am so proud to see Americans standing shoulder to shoulder, waving the American flag in celebration of this great victory.
We should spend the next several days not debating party politics, but in remembrance of those who lost their lives on 9/11 and those fighting for our freedom. God Bless America.
“Moreover, Trump congratulated Obama even though the president had infamously mocked him mercilessly just hours before the raid, at the 2011 White House Correspondents’ Dinner . . .
Liberals speak out from their comfortable homes.
. . . “Both Biden and Castro used their statements to criticize President Trump’s recent decision to withdraw U.S. troops from the Turkey-Syria border, and from Syria more generally. Castro’s language was even more passive.
“Other candidates were slow to acknowledge the successful raid, in which no American soldiers were killed or injured, aside from a K-9 dog involved in the operation.
“Trump told reporters that he had excluded certain congressional leaders from being briefed in advance of the raid for fear that leaks in Washington might tip off the terrorists, endanger U.S. forces, and undermine the success of the operation.”
Julian Castro Leaves Trump out of Congratulations for Raid on ISIS Leader Al-Baghdadi . . . “Other candidates were slow to acknowledge the successful raid, in which no American soldiers were killed or injured, aside from a K-9 dog involved in the operation.
“Trump told reporters that he had excluded certain congressional leaders from being briefed in advance of the raid for fear that leaks in Washington might tip off the terrorists, endanger U.S. forces, and undermine the success of the operation.” . . .
“Both Biden and Castro used their statements to criticize President Trump’s recent decision to withdraw U.S. troops from the Turkey-Syria border, and from Syria more generally. Castro’s language was even more passive.”
One of Hollywood’s great thinkers speaks something or other to power here:
Jamie Lee Curtis Rips Trump, Pities al-Baghdadi, Praises Dogs in Bizarre Rant . . . “While most of the nation was celebrating, Lee-Curtis appeared less than impressed, pointing out the suffering endured by those in warfare that Trump has never experienced.
“’He may have died a coward @realDonaldTrump but ALL living things suffer when they are blown up. Anyone who has experienced warfare, unlike yourself, would know that,” she wrote on Twitter. “War is brutal. Dogs are brave, bold, loyal, loving and healing.’ ”
After Obama sent SEALs to kill bin Laden Hollywood was ecstatic Happy Osama died like a dog
Bernie Sanders Acknowledges ‘Kurds and Other U.S. Allies’ After al-Baghdadi Raid, Not U.S. Forces or Trump . . . “Sanders remarked on the massive development but failed to mention the president’s role – or that of U.S. forces, specifically – in his initial statement, acknowledging the “Kurds and other U.S. allies” instead.” . . .
Funny, Poignant, Earnest: Hollywood Responds on Twitter to Osama Bin Laden Killing Here are a few selected excerpts:
- Late-night host Bill Maher (@billmaher): “Somali pirates, Gaddafi’s son, now bin Laden – do NOT f**k with Obama, he’s Gangsta!!”
- Actress Anna Kendrick (@AnnaKendrick47): “Wow. Just when you thought Obama couldn’t top correspondents’ dinner speech. The man’s on fire.”
- Filmmaker Spike Lee (@SpikeLee): “President Obama ‘May God Bless you and May God Bless The United States of America'”
- Maroon 5 frontman and The Voice celebrity coach Adam Levine (@adamlevine): “I don’t know how I feel about “celebrating” death. But im just glad this happened during a good man’s presidency.” . . .
Pelosi finally makes statement on al-Baghdadi raid and it’s as petty as it gets
. . . “Social media users were only too happy to throw a little shade Pelosi’s way… here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:” . . .
Leftists, Obama Officials Race To Downplay Al-Baghdadi Death . . . “And then there’s Obama’s Joint Chiefs Vice Chair James Winnefeld, who pre-emptively blamed Trump for whatever spate of radical Islamic violence comes next: “If you look back at the bin Laden raid, we treated his body with respect that is due under Islam,” he told CBS’s “Face the Nation.”
“Regardless, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi remains dead.”
