I’m Not Certain What The Proper Ethics Description Of The State Department Expressing “Concerns” Over The All Male Taliban Government, But “Oh, Shut The Hell Up!” Might Cover It…

In a statement that would be right at home in a satire of U.S. government cretinism like “Lil’ Abner” or “Mars Attacks!,” the Biden State Department expressed “concerns” over the composition of the new interim Afghan government announced by the Taliban. There’s just not sufficient diversity, you see.

The statement noted that the list of names announced by the Taliban earlier in the week“consists exclusively of individuals who are members of the Taliban or their close associates and no women.”

In a related statement, the State Department also expressed its shock and dismay that all the members of the interim government appeared to be Muslims, and no African-Americans were included.

OK, I’m kidding about that. But it would be no more ridiculous than the real statement. Maybe the diabolical strategy of the Biden Administration is to cause the Taliban to perish from laughing so hard their hearts explode, or something, like in Monty Pythons’ “Killer Joke” sketch. If the U.S. government has ever made an official statement that more embarrassing weak and pathetic than this one, I’d like to see it. Did the Hayes administration, after the corrupt deal in 1876 giving Rutherford B. Hayes the Presidency in exchange for pulling Federal troops out of the former Confederate states express its concern that former slaves were not being accorded the full rights of American citizens? That would be close.

This is one of the best examples of where ethics estoppel applies, easily surpassing Hillary Clinton condemning sexual harassment and demanding the female accusers of powerful men must be believed. When the U.S. abandoned the people of Afghanistan in a manner that evoked another Python classic moment…

…it forfeited all rights not to be mocked mercilessly if it dared to make any demands or express any “concerns” about what the known radical, brutal Islamists it left in power to do whatever they wanted did, which everyone knew would include treating women like a lesser species.

The Taliban talibanned women from participating in sports yesterday, and the Biden State Department thinks it is going to react to the expressed “concern” that it won’t allow women to participate in its government with anything but hilarity and derision? Who ARE these people? Does diversity and inclusion mean that our State Department has to be run by alumni of Madam Louise’s Home for the Bewildered?

What is this? Could the Biden experts we now have running our foreign policy really be this stupid and tone deaf? Or is it the public the Biden hacks think is so gullible that such hollow virtue signaling will prompt Americans to respond, “Good for us; that’s telling ’em!”? Is it women and feminists this bunch of desperate incompetents have such contempt for?

I don’t understand. What are they doing? What do they think they’re doing? What’s going on here?

The Biden Presidency is now officially an Ethics Train Wreck.

    • Same here; the Incoming Hash-Tag will strike fear into any dark souls!

      Reminds me of the laughable slobbering that ensued after the 2019 Madison Metropolitan School District spring election; the newly elected board was dubbed The Most Diverse EVAH!.

      One small problem: Not a Y-Chromosomal Unit to be seen, leaving alone the pervasive, iron-clad ideological monoculture; radical “you’re either a Victim or an Oppressor advocacy.

      Shortly thereafter, President Mary Burke resigned/retired, paving the way for a carefully selected (READ: Ideologically Certified) token male.

      This word diversity Lefty keeps using, I do not think it means what they think it means…

  1. On NPR coverage of the new Afghan government, the reporter also noted, in her “oh so concerned” voice, her apparent surprise that it included no women, opposition members, non-Muslims, etc. The only reasonable response seemed to be “DUH!”.

  2. We prefer to select for diversity, they prefer to select for homogeneity. It’s two sides of the same coin. Neither is selecting based only on skill or objective qualifications.

    Anyone in the State Department that didn’t see this coming should resign.

    • How many women are involved in the Russian and Chinese and Uzbek and Tajik and Indian and Turkish and Somali, Palestinian, Saudi, Jordanian, Egyptian (I could go on) governments? They’re holding up Kamala Harris as an example of what women in government can bring to the table? This really is Babylon Bee stuff.
