Just when you thought the liberal media couldn’t fall farther into the moral death pit, they shock you with another heaping pile of hypocrisy that leaves your jaw on the floor.
Colin Powell, who is arguably the biggest war monger in modern U.S. history, served as the chief foreign war architect for multiple presidential administrations, both Republican and Democrat. He is responsible for many military conflicts with foreign governments, which cost American lives and American taxpayer dollars.
Powell’s reputation faltered when in 2003 he went before the U.N Security Council and made fallacious claims to justify entering into war with Iraq. He was the arbiter of then-President George W Bush’s phony theory that Saddam Hussein was secretly stashing weapons of mass destruction.
What resulted is decades of tragedy, lives lost, and taxpayer dollars down the drain.
On Monday, it was reported that General Powell passed away after multiple underlying complications interacted fatally with COVID-19. He was 84.
Meanwhile, liberals – as phony as ever – are posthumously celebrating Colin Powell with glowing headlines and articles. One common thread seems to link every article, proving yet again that liberals are entranced by this cult of wokeness.
CNN, MSNBC, et al are focusing solely on Powell’s skin color, not his achievements or his failures, but the fact that he happens to be black.
In 1989 Powell became the first Black chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. But that didn’t stop him from plunging the U.S. into multiple military conflicts. In that role he oversaw the U.S. invasion of Panama and later the U.S. invasion of Kuwait to oust the Iraqi army in 1991.
An announcement was made on social media by Powell’s family informing the public of his tragic end.
While the General was fully vaccinated, his multiple underlying conditions – including blood cancer – caused his immune system to suffer and he was unable to fight the virus.
Former President George W. Bush said he and former first lady Laura Bush were “deeply saddened” by Powell’s death.
As liberals continue to worship at the alter of wokeness, it’s become even more imperative for conservative outlets do something their liberal counterparts wouldn’t even consider: tell the truth.
