Mrs. Clinton and the Amazing Amnesia of Delusional Democrats

Back in 2014, Charles Barkley told James Harden during a Foot Locker commercial obviously inspired by Democrats in the Swamp that “all the greats have short memories.” He didn’t know anything about any of the unfortunate events Harden mentioned, just that all the greats have short memories, and even passed to Scottie Pippen for confirmation. “I sure do,” Pippen assured Harden. “And I’m the greatest Chicago Bull of all time.” “And that’s how it’s done,” Barkley replied.

That’s how it’s done in the Swamp, too. But in politics, it isn’t only “the greats” who suffer this amazing case of mass amnesia.

Iran: What Would Hillary Do?

As tensions rise between the United States and Iran, the delusional Democrats who were “with her” back in 2016 are coming out of the social media woodwork to say, “I told you so.” Trump’s starting a war with Iran – never mind the fact that his aggressive moves against the Middle Eastern nation have all come after attacks by Iran or Iran-backed groups. If a country attacks the United States, what is the president supposed to do, just sit back and let Americans die like Obama and Clinton did in Libya?

But never mind for a moment whether Trump should take action. Let’s focus on the Cult of Clinton and their claims that Madam President would have done better. Short memories: All the greats have them. In 2008, back when then-Senator Clinton wanted to be president the first time, she made it clear that, if she won, any Iranian attacks on Israel meant war with the U.S.

To be fair to Mrs. Clinton, she was talking about Iran attacking Israel, not the United States. So, perhaps she wouldn’t have cared as much had the lives lost been American. She certainly didn’t balk as secretary of state when Obama allowed Iranian aggression to go unpunished. And while we’re on the subject of short memories, how about that love for Israel back in ’08?

“If a country attacks the United States, what is the president supposed to do, just sit back and let Americans die like Obama and Clinton did in Libya?”

US is being attacked IN THE MIDDLE EAST because it is an illegal occupier IN THE MIDDLE EAST. The US should not be in the middle east as it only makes any instability a lot worse.
It is pointless trying to support Trump when he fails to follow up on his promise of disengaging from foreign conflict zones.

The sad truth is that the US is in the ME for Israel. Almost nothing else matters for it. Even given the public’s increasing reluctance to live with that reality, the powers that be and their MSM bullhorns feel compelled to double down on convincing the public otherwise. I wish it were otherwise but building a fictional reality helps no one and guarantees perpetual strife. I have no acceptable answer but to me, it’s obvious that something new need be tried. That’s why ‘democracy’ by its true definition is more a facade than a reality in today’s America. Blame whoever… Read more »

This isn’t amnesia, this is gaslighting.

For some of them, sure. But most of the Dems I know (all pretentious retired university types), truly hate Russia, Russians, or for that matter anybody who has a more nuanced view of the eastern ‘axis’ than they. They also appear utterly incapable of seeing the positions advanced by their party leaders as anything but morally-elevated, and obvious ‘truth’. That isn’t ‘gaslighting’, it’s brainwashing. If it was John Podesta, Schumer or Hillary talking it WOULD be ‘gaslighting’, but from what I’ve seen the average self-identified party member has gone full Bolshevik and resembles a weaponized Zombie more than anything.

What Iranian attacks on the USA and what Iranian aggression? Seem to have missed all that. All the attacks and aggression are from one side only, the USreali side.
Why does the Duran publish the rantings of these delusional Yanks?

Psychopaths, narcissists, opportunists. If you don’t have at least two of these three attributes, don’t bother running for POTUS. All three might even guarantee you a win.

You forgot the necessary ‘must have’ attributes: Corrupt to the core, pathologic lying 24/7 about everything + ideological obsessiveness

Appreciate the historic references, but none of those will ever make any difference to the centrist Democrats I know. They believe their party bosses exclusively, and believe nothing which conflicts with their basic ‘Goldwater Girls’ perspective on the world, regardless of the source. To me the Democratic Party today looks as splintered as the Green Party and the myriad of social justice issues they humor which have ensured that they go nowhere nationally (at least in the US). Frustrating that they won’t even consider the hypocrisy of their party claiming anti-war cred (from Vietnam war days) while surreptitiously advocating for… Read more »
