For much of the modern left, “1984” would ring true:
WAR IS PEACE
FREEDOM IS SLAVERY
IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH
Those are the slogans of The Party of Oceania in the dystopian novel “1984.” And Sen. Kamala Harris would fit right in.
Last week she was full of bluster, absurdity, and hypocrisy as she pushed CIA director nominee Gina Haspel to declare that “torture” is immoral.
To clarify – Kamala wouldn’t know morality or torture if it hit her in the face.
Her torture definition could’ve come straight from the pages of “1984.” It’s waterboarding. But, waterboarding as practiced by the American CIA and military is not torture. Proof? It was done on our soldiers until 2007 to teach them how to survive capture. Fox News reporter Steve Harrigan underwent waterboarding in 2009 as a demonstration of the process. Yes. Among Fox News’ many crimes against humanity, they WATERBOARD THEIR REPORTERS!
I can’t find a single instance of any leftist getting upset about a Fox News reporter or our military being tortured. Of course, they do hate Fox News more than terrorists. Silly me. Probably celebrated Harrigan’s waterboarding.
The only thing tortured here is the definition of the word, “torture.”
U.S. waterboarding isn’t torture, and it isn’t immoral. As done by the U.S. it’s a very moral way to get information from a murderous wretch to save innocent life. The terrorist isn’t physically harmed at all! That seems humane in the extreme!
During a 2007 raid on an al-Qaida safe house, torture instructions were discovered, along with implements of torture like meat cleavers, whips, and wire cutters. Missing? Towels and buckets of water.
Torture instructions for Islamic terrorists from that source and others include:
- raping the torturee’s family members;
- pulling out fingernails and constricting genitals;
- torching a person’s face and EYE REMOVAL (all caps because I am horrified).
That is all torture and immoral – and typical Islamic terrorism.
Maj. Gen. Patrick Brady is disgusted with John McCain’s conflation of waterboarding and torture. He wrote recently of real torture experienced by Col. Bud Day, a Medal of Honor recipient in Vietnam: 300-plus “strokes with a car fan belt that cut open his scrotum, hanging upside-down, pistol-whipped in the head, kneeling on concrete while being beaten so long that he could see his knee bones.”
But Kamala is morally confused.
She thinks it’s “immoral” to waterboard a bloodthirsty jihadi (I have no problem calling them animals) who will gladly slit your child’s throat for gain.
She also thinks Planned Parenthood is a moral force. You know this “moral” organization:
- whose founder, Margaret Sanger, said, “Colored people are like human weeds and are to be exterminated”;
- that puts 79 percent of its clinics in minority neighborhoods (let that sink in) to carry out Sanger’s vision of exterminating black people;
- that has led the way in taking 57 million lives;
- that has led to more black babies aborted than born in New York City in 2012 (and the abortion of 30 percent of the black population of the U.S. since 1972);
- that illegally sells the BABY body parts.
And Kamala wasn’t mad that Planned Parenthood was selling baby body parts. She was mad that someone caught the perpetrators! She actually went after the group that discovered that Planned Parenthood was profiting from the sale of baby parts.
So in a 1984 “war is peace, freedom is slavery,” upside down, mixed-up world, here are Kamala’s slogans (and most of the leftist world):
IMMORAL: Waterboarding terrorists in the same way American special forces have been waterboarded in training.
MORAL: Targeting babies, and especially minority babies, for abortion.
IMMORAL: Uncovering horrific practices like illegally selling baby parts on the black market.
MORAL: Carefully killing the “commodity” in the womb so as not to damage profitable parts to be sold.
TERRORIST: Deserving of protection by a U.S. senator.
BABY IN THE WOMB: A valuable commodity to be sold.
Wisdom for the wise: Any time someone begins spouting off about the “immorality” of a practice that is demonstrably moral, look at their other pronouncements of morality and immorality. And remember:
“Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!” – Isaiah 5:20
Some on the left were offended that Franklin Graham said the election of Trump was an act of God. But just looking at the “moral” pronouncements of the American left, this last election can only be seen as a defeat of those who are blind to the morality of the universe’s Creator.
