Brent Scowcroft, adviser to two presidents — Ford and Bush 41— the other day announced that he’s supporting Hillary Clinton. His initials are BS. How fitting.
Now, I’ve heard his name. I know a little bit about the man. I was a political wonk during the George Herbert Walker Bush White House years. However, my understanding of him was admittedly somewhat superficial.
Someone on Twitter had quoted an article in The Atlantic mentioning him, so I did some poking around.
Well, here’s one unflattering historical footnote that I learned about him.
“Scowcroft also, on Bush’s behalf, toasted the leaders of China shortly after the slaughter in Tiananmen Square.”
Scowcroft is slime. Diplomacy for diplomacy’s sake. A State Department lackey. He clearly doesn’t support those championing human rights. He’s one of those globalist, internationalist nuts who benefits from the status quo, so damn whatever the commoners need, think, or want.
Brave men and women died that day in China. How many will probably never be known.
I didn’t realize that America, thanks to President Bush and Brent Scowcroft, were complicit, accessories after the fact, in their murders. How does this man sleep at night?
