“Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passion, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence.” ~ John Adams, “Argument in Defense of the Soldiers in the Boston Massacre Trials”, December 1770
A serious problem Progressives (no matter which side of the aisle they come from) have is, eventually, they have a smash-mouth encounter with the impenetrable wall known as facts. Their idealistic/fantasy world, which they have willfully chosen to reside in … has real-time consequences for many innocents, who are caught under their rule.
And none more innocent than children…
Case in point … the products of the “Arab Spring” that Mr. Obama lauded are now murdering hundreds of Children. And, thanks to the senile-inspired insistence of his fellow Progressive on the other side of the aisle, Mr. McCain: They are NOW equipped with US weapons.
You see, the touchy-feely McCain “personally” met with these butchers and said that the majority are secular. And vehemently insisted that “There’s about 70 percent still who are Free Syrian Army.” OK, statistical genius … the experts say you’re, well, WRONG!
A study done by IHS Jane‘s Charles Lister, stated, “The insurgency is now dominated by groups with at least an Islamist viewpoint on the conflict.” Oh, I don’t know … based upon McCain’s assertion that a Muslim yelling “Allahu Akbar” after a kill is the same as an American Christian saying “Thank God” … I think it’s safe to say Mr. Lister is 100% correct. (I’m beginning to think McCain is turning into another Jimmy Carter, the Hamas apologist … but in McCain’s case, one for the Muslim Brotherhood.)
And since the transfer of arms to this loathsome lot … there have been a plethora of reports/video of the slaughter of innocents (mostly Christian and non-Sunni). These barbarians, that McCain calls “secular”, have murdered the most innocent among us:
— Syrian rebel terrorists attacked villages in Tal Abyad, near al-Hasakah governorate, killing civilians including women and 120 children. (FNS, Aug. 2, 2013)
– FSA rebels kidnapped and killed dozens of children from Latakkia and Ghouta, Syria. (Beforeitsnews, August 30, 2013)
— Syrian child tied by U.S.-Supported Jihadis and forced to watch the killing of her parents. (Raymond Ibrahim, June 23, 2013)
And this is not taking into account the Christian children who are being slaughtered by these jihadist fiends, since the Syrian Christians are being ethnically cleansed by all those “secular” rebels that McCain was happy to pose with in a photo … when he went on his jaunt for Mr. Obama.
These are al Qaeda related jihadists. Al Qaeda came out of the Muslim Brotherhood. And they are near and dear to Obama’s heart.
Progressives/Liberals have always covered their political grabs with “it’s all about the children” … I guess these don’t count…
…like the ones in the womb, right Mr. President?
Shalom through strength…
