Biden Admin Proves It’s Too Woke to Deal With the Taliban

The State Department’s expression of concern about the Taliban’s all-male government was the latest sign that the Biden administration is putting “wokeness” ahead of real-world military concerns.

SO WHAT

Is President Joe Biden too woke to protect America?

WHAT HAPPENED

In a statement Tuesday, a State Department spokesman worried aloud about the makeup of the new interim Afghan government announced by the Taliban, including the lack of female leaders and the past actions of some of those appointed to top posts.

  • “We have made clear our expectation that the Afghan people deserve an inclusive government,” the spokesman said.

THE CONTEXT

Biden’s Pentagon has made eradicating white supremacy from its ranks a priority even as it failed to adequately prepare for the Taliban’s conquest of Afghanistan — angering many conservatives.

To be fair, though, accusations that liberal bias helped doom U.S. nation-building efforts in Afghanistan go back many years.

SAME ENERGY

A Vice reporter, apparently earnestly, asked the actual Taliban in April what their plans were for an inclusive government, eliciting actual laughs from the jihadis.
