Their behavior has led the president to characterize members of the mainstream media as “enemies of the people.” Naturally, that ticks them off but the characterization couldn’t be more accurate -- and the latest organization to prove it is the Washington Post.
On Sunday, the president announced that U.S. Special Forces operators, acting on intelligence, infiltrated a compound in northern Syria where ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was hiding with several of his men.
As our forces cut through his men and cornered him in a one-way corridor, al-Baghdadi blew himself up with a suicide vest he was wearing.
Naturally, the president took the opportunity to not only praise our forces, but take a major swipe at our terrorist enemies. And that was just too much ‘Merica for the anti-American Leftists at the Post.
An obituary by the Post read like a lionization of al-Baghdadi, who led a terrorist organization that slaughtered thousands of people and beheaded every Christian ‘infidel’ they could get their hands on.
“Austere?” “Religious scholar?” “Dies at 48?” Unbelievable.
Needless to say, the temperate treatment of a murderous terrorist thug outraged Americans inside and outside of the Beltway.
Oh yes, we forgot: These animals would soak people in gasoline, lock them in cages, and light the fuel, all for their viewing pleasure.
The Post also claimed that al-Baghdadi "maintained a canny pragmatism as leader,” and, “Acquaintances would remember him as a shy, nearsighted youth who liked soccer.”
And what fawning obituary of a terrorist animal would be complete without burying the worst behavior — like being a serial rapist and keeper of sex slaves? (Related: ISIS terrorists urged to start poisoning grocery food across America with deadly cyanide.)
Guess al-Baghdadi lost his “shyness,” huh?
How “pragmatic” to have several sex slaves instead of just one.
Of course, it wasn’t just the Washington Post that idolized this terrorist. Foreign Left-wing media, like the Times of London, did the same thing. As Zero Hedge reports, that paper described al-Baghdadi this way: “A promising young footballer and a student of the Koran who became a terrorist, mass murderer and the world's most-wanted man.”
‘Student of the Koran.” That’s a cowardly way of hiding the fact that al-Baghdadi was an Islamic extremist who oversaw the murder of tens of thousands of people just because they did not share his religious views.
The disgustingly positive treatment of al-Baghdadi led to several mocking tweets.
In addition to the mainstream media, it’s become obvious that former President Obama and the sycophants who enabled all of his corruption are just as seditious as the media that protected them.
During an interview Sunday on CNN, network contributor James Clapper, a serial liar and former director of national intelligence, actually suggested that killing al-Baghdadi was going to put the rest of us more at risk because it would ‘inspire’ remaining ISIS fighters, or something stupid like that.
“What is going to be interesting is to the extent to which this negatively affects ISIS or does it galvanize ISIS, the remnants of ISIS, which still survives as an ideology and has franchises in other places besides Syria,” he said.
The biggest enemies to our republic are coming from within. And many of them use their First Amendment right to undermine and destroy the very country that protects more than half the world from authoritarianism and tyranny.
