Skip to comments.Al-Baghdadi Dead, Leftists Crestfallen-A hero of the Left has passed away
Posted on 10/28/2019 8:45:50 AM PDT by SJackson
Just in time for Halloween, one of the most famous undead people in the world, the Islamic State (ISIS) caliph Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has been reported dead yet again, and this time it actually appears to be true. President Trump announced the news in an address on Sunday morning, and predictably, the Left is now furious. Any enemy of Trump is a friend of theirs, and suddenly Leftists are deeply concerned about Trumps affronts to the dignity of the fallen leader.
Trump said of al-Baghdadi that the United States had brought the worlds number one terrorist leader to justice. Al-Baghdadi, according to Trump, fled his pursuers and finally blew himself up in a jihad suicide bombing. Said Trump: He was a sick and depraved man, and now hes gone. He died like a dog, he died like a coward. He died crying, whimpering and screaming.
Barack Obamas former Ambassador to Qatar, Dana Shell Smith, was furious not at the man who had committed mass murder of innumerable innocent civilians, and had sanctioned the seizure of non-Muslim women and their use at sex slaves, but at the man who oversaw his killing. She tweeted: This gruesome, vivid and probably exaggerated description of dogs chasing down Baghdadi will endanger our personnel in the region. When bin Laden was killed, we were careful to be clear that he had been given a proper Muslim burial. Not because we gave a damn about him but because it was important for our relationships in the region and safety of our military and diplomats.
In reality, that was totally incoherent. On the one hand, Obama was insisting that jihad terrorists had nothing whatsoever to do with the peaceful religion of Islam, and then he turned around and gave one of the worlds leading Islamic jihadists a respectful Muslim burial. This didnt gain the US any respect or save any lives; it just made us look ridiculous.
Does Dana Shell Smith actually think that some of the jihadis in the Middle East will think, Well, I was going to go easy on the Americans, but now that they have shown al-Baghdadi disrespect, I will crush them? They were already trying to kill Americans, and will keep trying. In reality, it is the exaggerated respect shown to those who have vowed to destroy us that makes jihadis see us as weak and ripe for the taking. The only thing they respect is strength, and the only thing Obama and Dana Shell Smith projected was weakness.
The establishment media reaction was even worse. The Washington Post headlined its story about the killing as if Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was one of their favored anti-Trump intellectuals, dead at a tragically young age: Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, austere religious scholar at helm of Islamic State, dies at 48. Bloomberg wrote that Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi transformed himself from a little-known teacher of Koranic recitation into the self-proclaimed ruler of an entity that covered swaths of Syria and Iraq.
The respect! The deference! The admiration! Imagine what the Washington Post and Bloomberg will say when Trump dies. There is absolutely no doubt whatsoever that the headlines will be scathing, not remotely as adulatory as they are for the caliph. And imagine if a prominent foe of jihad terror died, and the Washington Post was writing about his death. Imagine that this individual had never called for or condoned any violence, much less terrorism, and had stood all his life for the freedom of speech, the freedom of conscience, and the equality of rights of all people before the law. And he wrote about how Islamic jihadis used the texts and teachings of Islam to justify violence and oppression. Do you think the Washington Post would headline his obituary in such a respectful manner?
Of course they wouldnt. They would headline their story, Far-Right Islamophobic Extremist Dies or some such. If such a person were murdered, they would suggest in their story that he brought it on himself with his extremist rhetoric.
But al-Baghdadi, a mass murderer, enslaver of Infidel women, villain of history? An austere religious scholar. Thats where we are today.
Also, its likely that the Posts propaganda masters were unhappy with this headline for implying a negative view of Islam. Al-Baghdadi, a twister and hijacker of the true, peaceful Islam, a religious scholar? Actually, it was accurate: he had a PhD in Islamic theology. But that fact doesnt fit the narrative, and so must be deep-sixed.
Anyway, the reaction on the Left to al-Baghdadis death is telling, but it is more for their having to deal with yet another success of a President theyre determined to destroy than for any actual love for al-Baghdadi. Then again, the austere religious scholar did hate America as much as they do. Maybe behind all the self-righteous indignation over Trumps rhetoric, there is some real grief.

Which is exactly why ISIS grew after that because Bathhouse Barry signaled we were weak and he was committed to their struggle ("The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam."). The Islamonazis only understand force and force is what they got from this President in unleashing the industrial size can of whoop ass on al-Baghadi including the President's parting words. Obama bowed to the Saudi king; the Saudi king gave President Trump a medal. 'Nuff said.
It does boggle the mind how the left, as champions of the LBGTQ-XYZ, continually likewise championing all Islamics, who would by nature lop the heads off everyone in the LBGTQ-XYZ community. And do so quickly.
“When bin Laden was killed, we were careful to be clear that he had been given a proper Muslim burial. Not because we gave a damn about him but because it was important for our relationships in the region and safety of our military and diplomats.
#DanaShellSmith, you are nothing but a sniveling coward. Go ahead and assume the fetal position and continue to whimper, you coward. Maybe the terrorists will behead you last. Coward.
OBL should have been dumped in the sea after being properly mutilated. “Proper Muslim burial’ my behind.
Trump has been using this reflexive opposition for years to make his opponents look ridiculous. Defending the world’s most notorious terrorist isn’t a good look, folks, nor is treating a sworn enemy with more deference and respect than they do with their own President.
“It does boggle the mind how the left, as champions of the LBGTQ-XYZ, continually likewise championing all Islamics, who would by nature lop the heads off everyone in the LBGTQ-XYZ community. And do so quickly”.
And we can’t forget the brutality women have been subjected to by Muslims. Al-Bagdadi pulled out the fingernails of one woman, then repeatedly raped her, burned others alive, etc. etc. etc.
Any enemy of the United States is a friend to the DemocRats.
The left is clearly and completely criminally insane.
Are there ANY moderate democrats at all left or are they all extreme radical American enemies?
Hero? Or a wedge to use against Americans the left deems as a threat? Muslims, illegals, minorities, transgenders. You name it, the left uses each and every one as a pawn.
Now Nancy can have an aid remove Bagdadi from her speed dial.
“When bin Laden was killed, we were careful to be clear that he had been given a proper Muslim burial.”
Which is a load of BS. They tossed his body in the ocean (supposedly), and that is not ever a “proper Muslim burial”.
They court the queers for now, because they are a voting bloc that can help them at the moment, but the muslims will very quickly outnumber them, and the muslims always keep growing, while the queers will continue to stay at 2-3%. As soon as it becomes inconvenient to pander to both, the left will dump the queers in favor of the muslims, it’s just simple math.
Binny was fed to the fishes. May he rest in pieces sequestered in fish sh!t.
An enterprising entrepreneur will be coming out with a T-shirt.
Duplicitousness is a hallmark of Alinskyism. Those who blindly support the demon rat party are too dense to see that the party agenda is rife with contradictions; two opposing agendas sufficiently confuses demon rat voters such that they see neither as wrong.
The problem with our ambassadors is they have a disturbing tendency to 'go native'.
This is one.
Iranian born Valerie Jarrett's parent are another.
...any bets? Baghdadi T-Shirts will soon outsell Che T-Shirts.
