John Kerry said to a crowded internet café in Berlin, “In America you have the right to be stupid, if you want to be… and we tolerate that.” Let me translate. Conservatives, you have the right to be wrong, and we, liberals, tolerate your right to be wrong. I would like to add that you also have the right to open your mouth and eliminate any doubt of stupidity.
How contrasting these words are to John F. Kennedy’s, in his famous speech in Berlin, “Ich bin ein Berliner,” in which he told Germans indirectly that he understood their plight of living with a country separated by the Wall of Shame, the Berlin Wall, erected by the Russians. Families living on opposite sides of the same street had found themselves separated overnight by a tall concrete wall and barbed wire, guarded by East German soldiers who shot for keeps from looming towers.
President John F. Kennedy had told the roaring crowd that he was a jelly doughnut, yet the world and the Germans applauding him knew what he meant even though the German phrase he had spoken had one too many words, “ein.” Ich bin Berliner, I am German like you.
John Kerry is no JFK. On a nine-country tour of Europe and the Middle East, the newly-minted Secretary of State is promoting religious and political tolerance by showcasing the tolerant America and its multiculturalism. Tolerance is ‘something worth fighting for,’ he said.
John Kerry continued, “We live and breathe the idea of religious freedom and religious tolerance, whatever the religion – and political freedom and political tolerance, whatever the point of view.” He forgot to mention that this tolerance is one-sided, as long as conservatives agree with the liberal and Democrat points of view. If conservatives disagree with their talking points, they are racists and hate mongers.
“As a 12-year-old, I saw the difference between the east and the west. I saw people were in darker clothing and there were fewer people in the street. There were fewer cars. I didn’t feel the movement and the energy that existed elsewhere.”
Kerry had lived in Berlin in the 1950s with his American diplomat father and his family. He had snuck out one day to the other side, to East Berlin, part of the German Democratic Republic, a totalitarian state established by the Soviet Union with the communist party in power and a socialist collectivist economy.
Kerry first speech as Secretary of State promoted global warming fear mongering and population changes in a speech at the University of Virginia. “We as a nation must have the foresight and courage to make the investments necessary to safeguard the most sacred trust we keep for our children and grandchildren: an environment not ravaged by rising seas, deadly super storms, devastating droughts, and the other hallmarks of a dramatically changing climate.” It does not matter how many times the non-existent global warming is de-bunked. Arrogant liberals, who think they can control nature and weather-related disasters that have occurred since the beginning of time, continue to promote their manufactured global warming/climate change crisis because there is too much money to be made from carbon swaps and carbon taxes. Well-informed Americans are getting weary of misinformation and propaganda. “Americans are tired of being tired.” http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/kerry-gives-first-foreign-policy-speech-climate-change_703024.html#sthash.zZ9n9Np3.dpuf
Global warming and population change/manipulation are enshrined in the U.N. Agenda 21, a form of global communism control operating on the premise that the environment must be protected from faux man-made global warming and destruction. Carbon-taxing citizens from developed nations, redistributing their property to third world countries with the help of the United Nations, and social engineering, moving people from the land into high-rise, congested living/walking/areas into the city would somehow restore the planet to its “pristine” condition. When the definition of “pristine” is evaluated carefully, a scary picture emerges in which man can no longer occupy the land it owns or desires to own, capitalism is a dirty word, and man becomes “persona-non-grata,” an unwanted person.
That is exactly what communists did to people in East Germany and behind the Iron Curtain when they moved people off the land. Yes, we had fewer cars, wore dark, drab clothing, hid in our dirty grey concrete multi-story apartments without heat, water, or electricity for endless weeks and months, and standing in long lines to get our daily rations of food if we could get to the front of the line before they ran out. It is hard to be energetic when you are hungry and beaten down psychologically. Yet liberals promote U.N. Agenda 21, the return to the very same type of existence. To “protect” the environment that renews itself, they demand fewer cars on the road, public transportation, buses, trains, biking, and walking to work/school, dependent on government for all our needs, a government that cannot run anything right except the military.
We are so tolerant in America that we accept the killing of millions of innocent unborn who want to live as “choice,” we tolerate and reward financially millions of illegal aliens trespassing our borders as “undocumented Americans,” we accept political gridlock, we allow government intrusion into our lives, health care, we endure political correctness, we accept Sharia Law which is incompatible with our Constitution, and permit the deliberate incompetence and corruption of politicians. Yes, we have the right to be stupid in America and, unfortunately, we are fully exercising that right, to the shock and delight of the rest of the world.
