House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has found herself on the receiving end of a wave of furious criticism.
In a statement on Sunday, Pelosi praised President Biden’s leadership even as Afghanistan fell and terrorists marched through Kabul with stolen U.S. military equipment. Pelosi said Biden is “to be commended” for “the actions he has taken” in Afghanistan.
Pelosi’s comments immediately attracted outraged criticism from all sides. President Biden’s actions have wasted trillions of dollars and thousands of lives, as the Associated Press noted.
Going down with Biden
In no way should President Biden be praised for allowing Afghanistan to fall after 20 years of work to bring democracy to the Middle Eastern nation.
For Pelosi to claim that Biden should be commended, even as hundreds of protestors rally outside the White House, as Breitbart reported, is simply absurd. Pelosi should be distancing herself from Biden, at least if she wants to save what’s left of her political career.
As if to double down on her statement, Pelosi took to Twitter and wrote, “The Taliban must know that the world is watching its actions. We are deeply concerned about reports regarding the Taliban’s brutal treatment of all Afghans, especially women and girls. The U.S., the international community, and the Afghan government must do everything we can to protect women and girls from inhumane treatment by the Taliban.”
Pelosi’s statement comes off as tone-deaf and insincere to many. The Taliban has no reason to fear the United States after what has happened and with Biden at the helm.
The Afghan people will once again be subjected to horrible human rights abuses, and the man responsible deflected blame onto former President Donald Trump, the Afghan army, and everything and everyone else but himself.
Democrat fate sealed
Other Democrats have seen the writing on the wall and are turning on Biden in an effort to save themselves, especially as the 2022 midterm elections near. Pelosi’s decision to stand with Biden is a bizarre one that could finally end her career if she maintains her current vector.
The fall of Afghanistan will be looked back on as a moment that sealed the fate of the Democratic Party. Democrats are already on thin ice, and after this disaster, their hopes of maintaining power in 2022 are all but destroyed.
While the Biden administration attempts to blame everyone from the Afghan army to former President Trump, Americans know the truth.
President Biden has been an abysmal failure in the arena of foreign policy. Where Trump created genuine peace, President Biden has made the world a more dangerous place.
