It’s not every day when major voices as disparate as Piers Morgan and Rush Limbaugh agree. But when it comes to Democratic (and, more widely, liberal) reaction to Trump’s killing of Iranian General Soleimani, Morgan and Limbaugh are singing the same tune.
In their view, liberal hatred for Trump is so extreme that the left would rather sympathize with terroristic Iran than celebrate the death of a mass terrorist. How telling.
According to Morgan, “Soleimani was the world’s most dangerous terrorist,” no ifs, ands, or buts.
“As such,” Morgan continues, “he was no different ideologically from other terror leaders like al-Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden and ISIS commander Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.”
And U.S. forces took out all three of these mass murderers. (The ISIS leader, of course, killed himself when he was about to be captured.)
“Yet unlike,” Morgan observes, “Bin Laden and Baghdadi, Soleimani’s death has been met with howls of protests from the world’s liberals.”
Why? It’s because of liberal hatred of Trump.
Indeed, “when Obama ordered the execution of Bin Laden, liberals cheered him around the world.
“But Trump Derangement Syndrome dictates there must be a very different response when the current president kills a terror leader.”
Now, you might say that Morgan is wrong here. If Trump Derangement Syndrome was so blinding, why didn’t these same liberals condemn Trump for taking out Baghdadi?
The answer would appear to be that: 1) ISIS was too evil and could not possibly be defended, whereas there can be sympathy for the nation of Iran and one of their generals. 2) Baghdadi ultimately killed himself. 3) His death occurred before Trump’s impeachment, with the impeachment causing the left to become even more radicalized.
Morgan was also right to dispel the myth that Trump acted impulsively and on his own to take out Soleimani. (He details the order of events in his article.)
This has been a concern of the left from day one, and it was a concern I had in the past as well. Trump will get us into another world war. He is irresponsible. He is a madman. He is unhinged and you never know what he will do.
