When Snowflakes Find Air Time at Fox News

Snivelling, sob sister ‘Snowflakes’ fire off dumb questions when they’re out on the streets lamenting the election of Hillary Clinton-tagged “misogynist”  presidents—and even dumber ones on primetime Fox News interviews.

Meet Fox News talking head on Syria Marie Harf, who when she was the Obama State Department’s No. Two spokeswoman said that that ‘lack of opportunity for jobs’ in the Middle East should be the US focus.

“We cannot win this war by killing them, we cannot kill our way out of this war,” Harf said of the ISIS terror army.” (Daily Mail, Feb.17, 2015)

If you heard no mention of the brutal killings of 21 Coptic Christians lined up on a Libyan beach and decapitated by ISIS-linked militants when Harf made her atrocious statement on MSNBC,  it’s because she didn’t mention them.

“The Obama administration is drawing fire for suggesting that defeating ISIS requires more of a jobs program for terrorists than a sophisticated approach to killing them.” (Daily Mail)

Instead, Harf said, the administration should ‘go after the root causes that leads people to join these groups’ – including ‘lack of opportunity for jobs.

“‘We can work with countries around the world to help improve their governance,’ Harf insisted. ‘We can help them build their economies so they can have job opportunities for these people.’”


The clock gallops ahead to the present when Harf said President Trump’s response to Syria’s use of chemical weapons was “great”, but there are still a lot of unanswered questions:

There’s always a big “BUT” when snowflakes get the floor:

“Marie Harf, a former State Department spokesman during the Obama administration, said Friday President Trump’s response to Syria’s use of chemical weapons was “great,” but there are still a lot of unanswered questions. (Fox News, April 4, 2017)

“Tonight, great response,” Harf said in an interview with Fox News’ Shepard Smith. “But what if they (Syrian military) do it again? What if they use barrel bombs? What are we going to do for Syrian refugees who we say can’t come to the U.S., but we’re willing to drop bombs on their country? I hope the Trump administration is thinking this through.”

“The U.S. launched nearly five dozen cruise missiles at a Syrian airfield Friday in response to a chemical weapons attack that killed dozens of civilians. Trump said the base was used as the staging point for Tuesday’s chemical weapons attack on rebel-held territory.

“Harf worked closely with former Secretary of State John Kerry and President Obama when the administration had an opportunity to take military action in Syria in 2013. The administration did not get the approval from Congress to send boots on the ground, which led Obama to go the diplomatic route.

“A lot of us do wish there were times we were more militarily engaged in Syria,” Harf said.

“She added that the Obama administration looked at all possible consequences of possible military action in the region at the time, including the possibility of Hezbollah attacking U.S. military bases.

“In a region that is on fire, now with the addition of ISIS as a huge threat to the region, there are a lot of things that could happen if the U.S. gets more militarily involved,” Harf said.”

The ‘Give-a-job-to-a-jihadist Harf is no longer current but only one in a long line of Obama has-beens

The ‘Give-a-job-to-a-jihadist Harf is no longer current but only one in a long line of Obama has-beens.

This is the lineup of interviews we come to expect from MSNBC and the other alphabet television networks.

But Fox News?

From her April 15, 2012 wedding notice on the New York Times, “Ms. Harf is keeping her name.  She works in Chicago as the associate policy director for national security for President Obama’s re-election campaign”.

Harf’s “there are still a lot of questions” remark about President Trump’s response to Syria’s use of chemical weapons should not cloud this important one:

Why did Fox News award this snowflake air time on a Shepard Smith interview?

Note the picture of Obama on the right of the CFP Fox News screen grab.

Why would Fox ever run such a story?

Over to you, Shepard Smith.
