In August 2021, after having overseen the end of the useless and futile Afghanistan Occupation, conservatives began an on-line campaign to blame Biden for everything.an overnight rumor spread rapidly an rightwing Twitter that neither President Biden, nor Vice President Harris, nor anyone from the Biden Administration had gone to meet the last 13 returning service members slain during the withdrawal, during their dignified transfer. This lie quickly caught fire amongst the right as pictures of C-5 Galaxy's landing at Dover AFB without President Biden and pictures of President Biden's "official" White House schedule circulating without mention of attending Dover AFB. This caught the eyes of several prominent Republican congresspukes, former Trump officials, and the eyes of Faux News Liars who ran with the story.
Because as Joe Rogan says about every piece of rightwing trash he regurgitates without pause, “It’s got to be a real thing … it seems too good to not be … damn it, it better not be fake."
Even after their story feel apart rightwingers attempted to keep it somewhat alive by claiming their outrage had forced President Sleepy Joe Biden to scramble and rearrange his schedule to make the landing. Because what's important is too push those emotional buttons in the rightwing reptile brain, to get them riled up, to keep conservatives in a constant state of frenzied anger. By the time reality intercedes all rightwingers remember is that they were mad at Joe Biden and Joe Biden must have done something to make them mad.
So, it should come as no surprise that Faux News ran a story about the family of USMC Sgt Nicole Gee, having to pay $60,000 out of their own pocket to have her remains flown to Arlington National Cemetery for final burial. Two Republican House Assholes Cory Mills and Kevin Kiley went public and told Fox News, this was an outrage!Fox News simply deleted the story. Drats! Well, I'm certain they think, their next lie to slander Biden will catch on and they can always run a Hunter Biden dic pic for clicks! And after all some rightwingers will still believe the initial lie anyways.
The Kabul 13 they call them... what a slap in the face. What a despicable use of the the dead. Selective "waving of the bloody shirt." As if no one else fucking died over there. As if Joe Biden bears the responsibility of 20 years of pipe dreams of Nation building or Trump's 2020 Art of the Deal with the Taliban. As if Republicans give a rat's hind tit about Veterans or service members when they demonstrably don't, like last August when Senate Republicans fist-bumped after blocking key components of Veterans healthcare coverage.It's outrageous the rhetoric around Afghanistan. President Biden extricates us from a 20 year hole and not only doesn't he get credit (from anyone) he gets the blame. That Marines who died in the last battle of a failed war were infants when I was in the same land they would later die in, doesn't make me angry at President Biden, instead I thank him for having the courage to end it so some 18 year old yet unborn today won't die in 2041 in Afghanistan.
