Neoconservative Max Boot, Council on Foreign Relations member and Washington Post columnist, has stood out as one of the most unhinged Never Trumpers opposing the President’s “America First” agenda from the start, but he hit a new low after he defended the courage of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in an article earlier this week.
“The assertion that Baghdadi died as a coward was, in any case, contradicted by the fact that rather than be captured, he blew himself up,” Boot wrote in the original version of his op/ed published by the Post.
Boot was forced to backtrack after he received widespread condemnation over social media, and he had to edit his column and remove the controversial statement.
“An earlier version of this column included a sentence questioning whether Trump was right to call Baghdadi a coward because he blew himself up,” Boot wrote on Monday evening. “The line was removed because it unintentionally conveyed the impression that I considered Baghdadi courageous.”
Boot’s article argued that Trump’s overly harsh rhetoric against Baghdadi somehow nullified his signature foreign policy achievement.
“Most likely Trump made up the vivid details about Baghdadi’s last moments,” Boot speculated.
Trump’s comments about Baghdadi from his Sunday morning news conference announcing the death of the terrorist leader can be seen here:

“Trump’s news conference should have been his shining hour. Instead, it showed yet again why he is utterly unfit to be commander in chief,” Boot concluded.
Boot, who supported the disastrous Iraq war during the George W. Bush administration, was embarrassed during an appearance on FOX News’ Tucker Carlson Live in 2017.
While Boot used to be able to masquerade as a conservative when the globalists were in total control of the Republican Party, he has been forced to show his extreme leftist colors following the election of President Trump.
He now openly pines for the day when white Trump supporters are completely disenfranchised and have no political power, supporting the mass immigration agenda pushed by leftist oligarchs like George Soros:
A few decades from now, when the entire country is majority-miinority, the Trump era will be seen as a sad last gasp of white resistance — a reprehensible episode that will be recounted alongside the McCarthy era, the internment of citizens and noncitizens of Japanese descent during World War II, and the Palmer Raids. No one will remember or care who backed a corporate tax cut. When their grandchildren ask today’s Republicans what they did to oppose Trump’s racism, what will they say? “No comment”?
When it comes to Trump derangement syndrome, Boot may be suffering from the worst case out of all the Never Trumpers.
As Trump Leaves Office, Media Cites Ineffectiveness of Lockdowns and Democratic Leaders Display Eagerness to Reopen
Right on cue.
With President Donald Trump’s impending exit from the White House, many are starting to perceive pivots from Democratic leaders and the mainstream media on the ineffectiveness of lockdowns and the reopening of society.
For example, Newsweek ran an article Thursday titled “COVID Lockdowns May Have No Clear Benefit vs Other Voluntary Measures, International Study Shows.” The study, published in the European Journal of Clinical Investigation, found through a mathematical model that there was “no clear, significant beneficial effect of [more restrictive measures] on [COVID-19] case growth in any country.”
This is just one study, of course, so it may not reflect objective reality any more than one study which concludes that lockdowns saved “millions of lives.” But after getting bombarded with messages from the media that lockdowns were necessary—with the opposite message found only on explicitly conservative outlets like Big League Politics—it may seem too coincidental to see such a story while the changing of the presidential guard takes place.
Not only that, it also comes at a time when some Democratic leaders appear to be chomping at the bit to reopen restaurants, bars, and schools—after several months of harsh insistence that they all must stay closed in the name of “safety” and “public health.”
On Monday, for example, Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York called for the reopening of the state’s economy “smartly and safely.”
“We simply cannot stay closed until the vaccine hits critical mass. The cost is too high. We will have nothing left to open. We must reopen the economy, but we must do it smartly and safely,” Cuomo tweeted.

Mayor of Chicago Lori Lightfoot put out a similar call on Thursday, saying that bars and restaurants need to reopen “as quickly as possible” because it will help those businesses survive and reduce the number of large private parties and gatherings.
And incoming president Joe Biden recently pitched a $175 billion plan to return children to school, $130 billion of which would be for public elementary, middle, and high schools, the other $35 billion for colleges and universities. Many teachers unions stubbornly refused to return to in-person classes for the longest time, but now that Biden has come out in support of in-person classes, don’t be surprised to see them suddenly change their tune.
The left is so predictable, isn’t it?
