John Kerry has lost ‘legitimacy’ as Secretary of State

An American Secretary of State addressing American Embassy employees spoke of the “legitimacy” of the murderous attack on Charlie Hebdo, before realizing how outrageous that was and correcting himself to speak of a “rationale.” Too late and still awful. By expressing his understanding of, if not agreement with, the right of Muslims to murder those who violate their Sharia code while freely expressing themselves in the tradition of the West, Kerry has forfeited his ability to act as defender of American interests on the world stage.

He should resign or be fired.

    When did he ever have any legitimacy?

    • Glenfilthie

      LOL. I remember back when he got ‘swift boated’ – that pretty much every American blogger with a triple digit IQ was calling him ‘F***face’. The man is unquestionably an imbecile.

    John Kerry was against legitimacy before he was for it before he was against it again.

    Does anyone remember in 2004 when he was running against GWB, that he was being sold as the INTELLECTUAL candatite?
    He’s a shithead.

      I do. I also notice how our new PM was sold much the same way.

    • Maggat

      Right colour.

      I used to watch The Daily Show back then and even Liebowitz was exasperated by Kerry’s response to a simple question that should have had a binary answer.

    Resign or be fired? Not likely before next year’s election.

  • Ron MacDonald

    The entire Obama Administration should be fired.

    • Raymond Cameron

      I volunteer to be on the firing squad.

    We all remember Obama saying, “The future must not belong to those that slander the Prophet of Islam”. Then he, Hilary Clinton and Susan Rice said it was a video that caused the terrorist attack in Benghazi that killed the ambassador and others.

    And now Obama’s words have come full circle with what Kerry said. Their words condoned the killings at Charlie Hebdo and suppression of freedom of expression.

    Corrupt toadying fool.

  • Dana Garcia

    Leftists used to defend free speech, but then conservatives started winning arguments…

  • Ed
  • Mannie

    He had no legitimacy to lose. He should be hanged for treason during the Vietnam war.

  • Petrilia

    Too much botox, he can hardly find his own mouth anymore and what comes out of it is flowing excrement.

      There’s a William S. Burroughs story in the book The Naked Lunch about a guy whose asshole develops sentience and eventually takes over his body.
