Moral equivalence. It’s not just for professors of post-moral theory anymore. Anyone can play the game, including liberal senators and secretaries of state.
See if you can spot the difference between the Turkish Jihad boat Mavi Marmara and the Boston Marathon… and keep in mind that John Kerry can’t.
Speaking at Istanbul, Turkey, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry made a jarring comparison between the victims of the Boston Marathon terror bombs and terror activists from the IHH group who were killed when they attacked IDF forces aboard the Mavi Marmara in 2010. Kerry told his hosts in Turkey that he understands the pain of the families whose loved ones were killed aboard the Marmara – and added that he can understand their pain well, having just dealt with the families whose loved ones were slain in Boston.
I would point out the horror of this man almost ending up in the White House, but he would probably be an improvement over the one who did. But at least we can look forward to the speech that John Kerry will give at the next Taliban summit.
Meanwhile the United States has a man at the helm of its foreign policy whose ability to tell good from evil is completely absent.
