Is Mitt Romney an Idiot?
Romney lives in a neocon Bizarro world where war is peace.
No, but I bet he thinks you are.
Here is Mitt from a few days ago. He’s going on about Ukraine. Everything he says here is taken right from the neocon playbook.
Mitt says “we care about human life and the suffering that’s going on in Ukraine.”
If that were true, Mitt would have raised his voice in 2014 when the neo-nazis he supports began killing ethnic Russians in eastern Ukraine. The takeaway from his blather is that “humanitarianism” is only valid when it comes to saving the lives of Zelenskyy and his thugs.
As for the people of Ukraine, I cannot recall Mitt complaining about the massive corruption and poverty in that country. I don’t recall him denouncing the USG-sponsored coup that brought vicious neo-nazis to power.
“We’re just appalled by the fact that Russia has invaded a peaceful, sovereign nation next door,” says Mitt.
Peaceful? Neo-nazi ethnic cleansers, celebrating Stepan Bandera, and the murder of thousands of Poles in Volhynia and Eastern Galicia in 1943, are anything but peaceful.
Mitt has spent his time as a careerist politician—and before that, as a student—defending the brutality of the most violent, self-proclaimed “exceptional” nation on earth. USG crimes are exceeded only by Stalin’s Russia, Mao’s China, and Hitler’s Germany.
Mitt experiences cerebral vapor-lock when it comes to USG invasions, terror bombings, and regime changes in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, and dozens of other countries, for instance, Chile, Mali, Laos, Somalia, Yemen, Lebanon, Guatemala, Syria, on and on, with a death toll in the tens of millions since the end of WWII.
As a USG senator, Mittens is guilty of perpetuating and defending recent invasions, sanction warfare, and the horrifying prospect of human suffering and death inflicted on small, defenseless nations. He didn’t witness summary executions, beheadings, carpet-bombing, CIA torture, children fried by napalm, etc. No PTSD for Mittens. No blood splattered on his suit.
Back in the day, when Mitt was a student at Stanford, he opposed other, less entitled students protesting against the draft (compulsory slavery) and the Vietnam War. As I recall, Mitt debated the French government over its opposition to that war, which killed more than three million people, not only in Vietnam but also Laos and Cambodia.
I don’t recall Romney joining up to fight. I believe his sense of self-importance and narcissism got in the way of “serving” his country. “The Vietnam War came at a time in my life when I had other plans,” Mitt said.
It is disgusting how neocons and warmongers make excuses for not putting their pampered and entitled derrières on the line. “I had other priorities in the ’60s than military service,” said Dick Cheney, the Darth Vader of neocon mass murder and destruction.
Refusing the draft was an act reserved for rich boys and the sons of politicians. It wasn’t an option for working-class boys not able to snatch a college deferment.
Like most politicians, Romney conveniently changed his opinion on the war as the American people turned against it. “If it wasn't a political blunder to move into Vietnam, I don't know what is,” he said.
I guess Mitt “misspoke,” as back-pedaling politicians often aver to save face.
“Conflict makes us less well-off,” Romney argues in the Twitter video.
No kidding. $813 billion (the most money ever) for the “defense” (war) department certainly “makes us less well-off.” However, as one of the water carriers for a psychotic, war-addicted ruling elite, Romney certainly is not worried about being “less well-off,” not with a net worth of around $300 million.
No, Mitt will not have to beg for SNAP and submit to the government’s welfare-control system, as millions of Americans are now forced to do (the alternative being a street corner and a cardboard sign).
“If we’re in conflict, things aren’t good for us,” Romney says.
Au contraire, Mittens. “War is the health of the state,” declared Randolph Bourne at the conclusion of the “Great War,” and that maxim, thanks to Romney and virtually every member of Congress, holds true today, more than ever.
In fact, thanks to Mitt and the neocons (and neolib “progressive” warmongers), we have been mired in perpetual conflict for over 80 years.
It will not end well. However, I bet Mitt, his wife, and his children all have a reserved space in a luxurious government bomb shelter. As for his constituents in Utah, they will be stuck with a nuclear winter.
Mitt Romney lives in a neocon Bizarro world where war is peace, as George Orwell predicted.
“And when you have a nation that feels it can invade their neighbor without a response, without a reaction, you can have that happening more and more and more because that kind of violence spreads and ultimately comes to our own shores.”
It certainly does. Of course, it depends on who is perpetuating the violence. If it is the Contras or Latin American death squads trained in the US, CIA-supported jihadis, Wahabbi head-choppers, a wide array of tinhorn dictators, or neo-nazi cutthroats in Ukraine, that’s a different story. They are working in tandem with the “exceptional nation.”
Mitt probably is unaware of the fact al-Qaeda, and ultimately ISIS, are creations of the USG. I’m sure he is unaware as well of a remark made by General William Odom, who said, “by any measure, the U.S. has long used terrorism” to realize its geopolitical objectives.
Romney went on to regurgitate more fallacies and “misinformation” about Ukraine and the role played by the USG. He didn’t bother to mention what is on the minds of many Americans. That only matters during elections.
Americans paying attention to the horror show unfolding now face the dire prospect of thermonuclear war, thanks to the idiocy and bare-faced duplicity of Mitt Romney and his fellow neocons.
Anyone who survives may team up to rip down the blast doors at the Greenbrier Resort, in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia. I’m sure Mitt will be there, as will many other congress critters.
The survivors will be hungry.
