Leah wrote a similar story this morning, but the liberal news media seems to be pretty clear in their reaction to the death of terrorist mastermind Maj. Gen. Qassim Soleimani: Orange man…bad. Yeah, apparently, it’s only good for the U.S. if a Democratic president kills terrorists, but if it’s a Republican, or worse—Trump; it’s a total national catastrophe. Based on the reactions, you’d think Trump ordered a drone strike on Gandhi. Qassim Soleimani was a terrorist responsible for scores of American servicemembers’ death in Iraq. It’s a good thing he’s dead. We should be celebrating we blew him to pieces. He’s the epitome of human terrorist garbage that deserved to be BBQ’d when he blew up the car, he was riding in traveling through Baghdad. 

The man was a harbinger of death, destruction, and terror to millions. Yet, the news media seems to think this was a guy like Norman Schwarzkopf. Some “inspirational” leader. We talk about Trump Derangement Syndrome a lot here; these are prime examples. The Media Research Center’s Newsbusters division had a field day with MSNBC and CNN's coverage today.

 

 

He was not a legitimate public servant.  Over at The New York Times, they published a lengthy obituary that while informative could’ve been a little more declarative that this horrible man was a terrorist. Iran is the world’s largest state-sponsor of terror. There is never a day where the Left ceases to amaze us, huh?

He changed the shape of the Syrian civil war and tightened Iran’s grip on Iraq. He was behind hundreds of American deaths in Iraq and waves of militia attacks against Israel. And for two decades, his every move lit up the communications networks — and fed the obsessions — of intelligence operatives across the Middle East.

On Friday, Maj. Gen. Qassim Suleimani, the powerful and shadowy 62-year-old spymaster at the head of Iran’s security machinery, was killed by an American drone strike near the Baghdad airport.

Just as his accomplishments shaped the creation of a Shiite axis of influence across the Middle East, with Iran at the center, his death is now likely to prove central to a new chapter of geopolitical tension across the region.

General Suleimani was at the vanguard of Iran’s revolutionary generation, joining the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps in his early 20s after the 1979 uprising that enshrined the country’s Shiite theocracy.

[…]

In the West, he was seen as a clandestine force behind an Iranian campaign of international terrorism. He and other Iranian officials were designated as terrorists by the United States and Israel in 2011, accused of a plot to kill the ambassador of Saudi Arabia, one of Iran’s chief enemies in the region, in Washington. Last year, in April, the entire Quds Force was listed as a foreign terrorism group by the Trump administration.

[…]

But in Iran, many saw him as a larger-than-life hero, particularly within security circles. Anecdotes about his asceticism and quiet charisma joined to create an image of a warrior-philosopher who became the backbone of a nation’s defense against a host of enemies.

Yeah, talk about burying the lede there, folks. The Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps also created Hezbollah in the 1980s, another terrorist organization, but continue to label this guy as some sort of inspirational military leader. This. This right here is one of the many reasons why Trump won.
