Secretary of State John Kerry may be the only person on the planet who doesn’t realize Iran hates us and truly means it when chanting, “Death to America.”
Kerry will soon be out of a job, but that does not mean he cannot cause harm to the U.S. before January 20. “I think they have a policy of opposition to us and of great enmity, but I have no specific knowledge of a plan by Iran to actually destroy us,” John Kerry said when referencing the “Death to America” chants and overall Iranian mindset about the U.S.
Does Kerry really think leaders of one of the largest state sponsors of terror would actually share “specific” details about plans for our demise with him?
The secretary of state made the ludicrous comments while testifying before the House Foreign Affairs Committee. Republican Texas Representative Ted Poe had questioned Kerry about the commonly heard chants at events presided over by Iran’s supreme leader, the Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and President Hasan Rouhani.
“It is the policy of the ayatollah – if you can answer for him – that Iran wants to destroy the United States?” Representative Poe asked Kerry. “Is that still their policy as far as you know?”
John Kerry danced around the obvious as best he could, but Poe refused to let the matter drop. “Well, I kind of take [the chants] to mean that they want us dead.”
The Texan added, “That would seem like that would be their policy. He said that. That – you don’t think that’s their policy? I’m not mincing words. Do you think it’s their policy to destroy us?”
Kerry, ever the Obama loyalist and true liberal, still refused to concede the readily apparent fact that Iran hates America and would prefer We the People dead. Any admission about the true feelings of Iran about the United States by the secretary of state would make the nuclear deal Obama signed appear all the more insane.
“I do know that the rhetoric is uh, is beyond objectionable,” Kerry said. “I know that we, you know, are deeply concerned with Iran’s behavior in the region, deeply concerned with their past activities—which is why President Obama felt…”
Representative Poe interrupted Kerry’s nonsensical rambling to say, “If they did want to destroy us, they’ve got a much better shot of doing it if they had a nuclear weapon.” Exactly – and the nuclear deal is filled with loopholes that do absolutely nothing to prevent Iran from developing a weapon of mass destruction.
In just a few short weeks, Donald Trump will become the 45th president of the United States. HE will not ignore the “Death to America” chants from Iran when looking over the nuclear deal and fixing one of the many problems he will inherit from Obama!
