Sometime during the Bush-Kerry campaign I heard Kerry speak and thought: this guy is dim. His stint as Secretary of State has only reinforced that notion.
Speaking at the Munich Security Conference, Kerry praised German Chancellor Angela Merkel for showing “great courage in helping so many who need so much” and European communities who are taking in those fleeing the violence and “rejecting intolerance and racism” within their societies.
Voicing concern about massive numbers of immigrants from a vastly different culture is intolerant?
But he warned that the mass influx of refugees and other migrants into Europe spells a “near existential threat” to the continent.
“We are facing the gravest humanitarian crisis in Europe since World War II,” he said at the conference, which has been dominated by the Syrian conflict.
“The United States understands the near existential nature of this threat to the politics and fabric of life in Europe,” he told the meeting.
Does Kerry understand that his/Obama’s dithering on Syria played a big part in this humanitarian disaster? Nope.
