    John Kerry Lambasted Over ‘Appalling Moral Equivocation’ When Discussing Charlie Hebdo, Paris Terror Attacks

    In Secretary of State John Kerry‘s remarks at the U.S. Embassy in Paris Tuesday morning, he suggested Friday’s attack was different from the Charlie Hebdo attacks earlier in the year, because the latter had a sort of “legitimacy” and “particularized focus” behind them.

    “There’s something different about what happened from Charlie Hebdo, and I think everybody would feel that,” Kerry said according to the State Department’s transcript. “There was a sort of particularized focus and perhaps even a legitimacy in terms of – not a legitimacy, but a rationale that you could attach yourself to somehow and say, okay, they’re really angry because of this and that.”

    By comparison, Kerry argued, the simultaneous attacks Friday were “absolutely indiscriminate. It wasn’t to aggrieve one particular sense of wrong. It was to terrorize people. It was to attack everything that we do stand for.”

    That seems consistent with the tone of the entire administration so far.

    Obama and his entire administration, not to mention democrats that have made far left liberal ideals the main focus of their platform, LOVE muzzie terrorists and black criminals. The only thing they hate is white, law abiding citizens.

    He should resign, if he's empathizing with monsters who would kill over a stupid comic strip then he truly is a sick puppy.

    He takes his marching orders from obumba you cant blame him.

    Heard his boss embarrassed himself and our Country, showing up late for the meeting with other world leaders and immediately lecturing them for failing the refugees.

    I'm not super political, but what the fuck is wrong with Kerry's brain to say something that fucking stupid???? I'm sure the families that had loved ones killed in the Charlie Hebo massacre were overcome with joy to hear that the slaughter by RADICAL ISLAMISTS had "a legitimacy".

    Maybe their master plan is that the ISIS terrorists will all die of heat stroke 225 years from now when the temperature in Raqqa reaches 135 degrees?

    I'm not that big about our leaders saying "sorry", but John Kerry should 100% apologize for saying this. I'm sorry, I misspoke, that was inappropriate

    "Kerry's chin looks ridiculous. You can tell it's fake. Why would a guy do something like that, Robin?"
