President Biden’s State Department recently issued one of the dumbest statements ever uttered by man, expressing surprise and concern over the lack of diversity in the new Taliban government in Afghanistan.
“We have made clear our expectation that the Afghan people deserve an inclusive government,” a State Department spokesperson declared. The spokesperson added that the leadership announced by the Taliban “consists exclusively of individuals who are members of the Taliban or their close associates and no women.” Shocking. To absolutely no one with an I.Q. greater than that of a housefly.
Note to the State Department: the Taliban set women on fire when they screw up dinner. They take young girls as sex slaves. They stone gays and lesbians to death. They don’t believe women are capable of working in government. And this lack of diversity surprised and angered you?
Don’t tell me the folks at State thought the Taliban leadership group would be shot through with gays, lesbians, non-binary types, Jews and assorted other infidels. No sentient being expected there to be anyone other than swarthy, bearded, Muslim males in control of the new government.
Pathetic Western progressives such as those currently besmirching the State Department will also be perturbed to find out that the Taliban recently defaced a George Floyd mural by covering it up with Islamic slogans. Which is odd, since they themselves recently celebrated the beheading of a police officer.
Most of the world understands that diversity isn’t the be all and end all. Power is.
The U.S. must soon relearn that lesson or face its impending doom.
