Remember when President Obama said that more Americans die in bathtubs than at the hands of terrorists?
Well, now Secretary of State John Kerry has taken it a step further by adding air conditioners to the list. Kerry is in Vienna as the 1987 Montreal Protocol is being amended where it concerns Hyrdofluorocarbons (HFC) found in air conditioners and refrigerators. Kerry remarked:
As we were working together on the challenge of [ISIS] and terrorism. It’s hard for some people to grasp it, but what we–you–are doing here right now is of equal importance because it has the ability to literally save life on the planet itself.
Except that bathtubs and air conditioners don’t control vast amount of territory in Iraq, Syria and Libya. Nor do bathtubs and air conditioners behead American journalists, rape American relief workers, burn Jordanian pilots alive or commit genocide against Christians and Yazidis.
When President Obama invokes bathtubs, when Kerry invokes air conditioners and, for that matter, when Hillary Clinton asks “at what point what difference would it have made?” they demonstrate their lack of seriousness when it comes to the Islamic supremacy and its terrorism. It is attitudes like theirs which drives people into the arms of Donald Trump.
