Tell Me Again: What Part of MAGA Did You Object To?

Anyone remember the old Rush Limbaugh parody bit from the way-back machine that featured the whiney line “…but the Belgians and the French are laughing at us!” As I recall the premise was mocking the kinder-gentler path our military seemed headed down at the time and was implying that even the cheese-eating surrender monkeys and the chocolatiers were making fun of us.

Well fast forward about 15 years along that path and see, yet again, just how right Rush was:

…now the Chinese are mocking us. And for good reason. They’ve launched a hypersonic missile with nuclear capabilities that can reach speeds of up to 21,000 mph and strike anywhere on Earth from space within minutes.


The system would be able to overcome US anti-ballistic missile defense systems: that’s pretty impressive.


See what you can do when your resources are focused on offense/defense rather than a Green New Deal - which, I point out gratuitously, is quite useless in the face of nuclear annihilation. And if your military is more interested in the traditional role of killing people and breaking things than it is in CRT, gender roles and intersectionality?

According to the Financial Times:

The incident caught the US intelligence community by surprise, sources say, as it shows 'China has made astonishing progress on the development of its hypersonic weapons'.

One person familiar with the test said: 'We have no idea how they did this.' 

Ha ha ha! That’s a good one, how, indeed?

“It is inevitable that China will take an upper hand over the US.”

Tell me again, what part of MAGA did you object to?
