What An Unbelievable Cluster, Virginia Wants To Do WHAT?, And This Is What Integrity Looks Like *Open Thread*

August 31, 2021

Holy freakin’ frijoles – our leaders, including military leaders, have absolutely lost their mind. And they are doing real, significant damage to our nation. Well, I guess I should say, to the world after leaving terrorists $84 BILLION worth of advanced technology, weapons, humvees, armaments, and sadly I could just go on and on. Dear God.

Let’s start with the Taliban and some NEW idiocy/insanity that has emerged about what we did. I swear, it is hard to even believe this is true, but it is. From Townhall:

Buried mid-way through the piece is the Taliban offering the US to take control of not just the airport but all of Kabul. Chaos was engulfing the city as news of the government’s collapse spread. Security was a priority. The Taliban offered the US to take control of the city, and we turned them down (via WaPo): 

In the void, law and order began to break down, with reports of armed gangs moving through the streets.

In a hastily arranged in-person meeting, senior U.S. military leaders in Doha — including McKenzie, the commander of U.S. Central Command — spoke with Abdul Ghani Baradar, head of the Taliban’s political wing.

“We have a problem,” Baradar said, according to the U.S. official. “We have two options to deal with it: You [the United States military] take responsibility for securing Kabul or you have to allow us to do it.”

Throughout the day, Biden had remained resolute in his decision to withdraw all American troops from Afghanistan. The collapse of the Afghan government hadn’t changed his mind.

McKenzie, aware of those orders, told Baradar that the U.S. mission was only to evacuate American citizens, Afghan allies and others at risk. The United States, he told Baradar, needed the airport to do that.

On the spot, an understanding was reached, according to two other U.S. officials: The United States could have the airport until Aug. 31. But the Taliban would control the city.

What in the actual hell is WRONG with these people?!?! The Taliban offered to let us keep Kabul and we demurred? Are you SERIOUS?!?!?! Dear GOD – make it STOP.

Oh, but wait, it isn’t just the Feds who are working to destroy the country. Check out what the Virginia Department of Education wants to teach their students. When I first began to read this article, I had to stop after about the first paragraph I was so disgusted and appalled that any state in the USA, especially one that houses one of the target sites (Pentagon) would teach such unmitigated garbage to the minds of our children. From PJMedia:

On Thursday, the Virginia Department of Education published a video entitled, “Culturally Responsive and Inclusive 9/11 Commemoration,” detailing how Virginia public school teachers should handle the upcoming twentieth anniversary of the September 11, 2001 jihad terror attacks that killed nearly 3,000 Americans. The emphasis on that day and thereafter must not be on the ideology of the attackers or the ongoing jihad terror threat; rather, the focus is entirely on acknowledging and eradicating what the video calls “anti-Muslim racism.”

The video is narrated by a hijab-wearing woman, Amaarah DeCuir, who describes herself as “Professorial Lecturer, School of Education, American University & Paragon Education Consulting, President.” One would think that with all her expertise, Ms. DeCuir would know the elementary fact that Islam is not a race, and that there are Muslims, and Islamic jihadis, of all races. And of course she does know that, but she is operating in this video on the basis of the Leftist contention that opposition to jihad violence and Sharia oppression of women really stems from an irrational animus against Muslims as a people, and hence is a “racialized” form of “hatred.”

Yes, it’s toxic nonsense, but that’s the Left for you. In any case, Virginia public schools that implement DeCuir’s recommendations (and since the Virginia Department of Education published her video, it would appear that the department wants that to be all of them) will give students a presentation on the twentieth anniversary of the worst attacks ever on American soil that will portray Muslims as the primary victims of those attacks, and make herculean efforts to deflect attention away from the extremely inconvenient fact that the attacks were perpetrated in the name of Islam and in accord with its teachings.

If you doubt that fact, note that in March 2009, five masterminds of the 9/11 plot, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, Ramzi bin As-Shibh, Walid bin ‘Attash, Mustafa Ahmed AI-Hawsawi, and ‘Ali ‘abd Al-’Aziz ‘Ali – styling themselves as the “9/11 Shura Council” – wrote a lengthy communiqué titled “The Islamic Response to the Government’s Nine Accusations.” In it, they called the 9/11 attacks an “act of Jihad,” and explained: “The Jihad in god’s [sic] cause is a great duty in our religion.” They quoted numerous Qur’an verses, including the notorious “Verse of the Sword”: “Then fight and slay the pagans wherever you find them, and seize them, and besiege them and lie in wait for them in each and every ambush” (9:5) and another enjoining Muslims to “strike terror into the heart of the enemies of Allah” (8:60).

Yep. This is what they want to teach in VIRGINIA, one of the original colonies of our country, and from where founders like Jefferson hail. And now they want to teach – on the twentieth anniversary this horrendous radical Islamic attack that THEY are the victims?! Oh, HELL no. Every red-blooded American parent in Virginia better make DAMN sure that their children are not indoctrinated with this unbelievable BS, and get every one in that Department of Education fired. ASAP.

Yep – our leaders have are insane, from the very top down to state departments. People have lost their ever-loving minds.

But I can’t leave you with all of the insanity of the Left. That would just be wrong. So let me leave you with this story. This is what integrity, patriotism, grit, and determination look like. In this case, all that is coming from a Marine. Now, a year ago, that would have gone for all Marines, including their leaders. But not anymore. And that’s what makes this officer’s actions that much more impressive. From RedState:

He clearly doesn’t think the military leadership is owning up yet, so now, he’s gone a step further. He said that he will be resigning his commission, at 17 years, short of his 20 years which would vest his pension and benefits. This is an incredible sacrifice, giving up a lot of the security that he’s earned through his service — to be honorable, to put everything on the line to push for accountability, that if no one else stands for it, at least he will.

He takes them apart in a new video.

God bless this American hero.
