John Kerry Face-Brain

John Kerry’s Latest Idea to Stop Terrorism is Ridiculous

By Jeff Dunetz:

Relax America,  Secretary of State John Kerry has figured out how to win the war on terrorism. His solution is so far beyond the line where ideas are considered moronic– it is almost brilliant in its stupidity.

We don’t need to destroy the terrorist forces.

We don’t have to negotiate with them, making all kinds of concession that will only lead to our own destruction the way John Kerry and Barack Obama did with the Iran deal.

According to John Kerry the way to stop terror is to stop covering it in the media.   Really that’s all we have to do–if the media doesn’t cover it, no one will know about it and abracadabra…no terror!

“Kerry in Bangladesh: Media Should Cover Terrorism Less,” by Jeryl Bier,Weekly Standard, August 29, 2016:

During Secretary of State John Kerry’s first official visit to Bangladesh, he met with top Bangladeshi government officials and held a press conference at the Edward M. Kennedy Center in Dhaka. In light of recent terror attacks in that country, Kerry addressed the problem of terrorism, including root causes and how the terrorists spread their message. The secretary said that the media could “do us all a service” by reducing coverage of terror attacks:

Remember this: No country is immune from terrorism. It’s easy to terrorize. Government and law enforcement have to be correct 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. But if you decide one day you’re going to be a terrorist and you’re willing to kill yourself, you can go out and kill some people. You can make some noise. Perhaps the media would do us all a service if they didn’t cover it quite as much. People wouldn’t know what’s going on. (Applause.)…

Who knew?  If people didn’t know what was going on…there would be no terrorism.

WAIT A SECOND! Didn’t Kerry’s State Dept. also say that people join terrorist groups because they don’t have Jobs? Heck I was even willing to hire one to help the effort:

Granted no one wanted the job because the salary was too low (zero) but at least I tried.

But now it doesn’t matter, John Kerry has changed the State Dept.’s approach all we have to do is ignore the terrorism and it will go away.  If reporting on terrorism makes terrorism happen, perhaps if sports pages stopped reporting the NY Jets blowing big games in the second half, they would finally win. Perhaps the reverse works, if people started reporting that I won a billion dollars–that would come to pass. According to Kerry’s logic it should work.
