Democrat Senator On Biden Afghanistan Debacle: “No One Is in Charge”

Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal blasted the Biden administration Tuesday over the botched US withdrawal from Afghanistan, urging that the chain of command has broken down.

During a Senate hearing Tuesday in which military generals claimed they advised against the timeline to pull out troops from the country, in contradiction to Joe Biden’s own statements, Blumenthal issued a scathing assessment.

The Senator focused on stranded Americans, noting that it was a “moral imperative” to get them out, yet the State Department passed the buck to the Department of Defense. 

During a later MSNBC interview, Blumenthal repeated the comments, noting that Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin provided “no real responses,” because “there is nobody in charge.”

It asserts Christianity is institutionally racist, calling for white Christians to repent and offer “a sincere apology” to blacks for being “antagonistic.. to black people and the values of the black community.”

“Many have come to believe that we live in a post-racial society, but racism is very real for our brothers and sisters who are refused jobs and housing, denied basic rights and brutalized and oppressed simply because of the color of their skin,” one lesson explains. “There is an urgent need for Christians to evaluate racist attitudes and practices in light of our faith, and to live faithfully in today’s world.”

In an accompanying Study Guide on Racism, Salvation Army authors explain that all whites are racist, even if they don’t realize it. “The subtle nature of racism is such that people who are not consciously racist easily function with the privileges, empowerment and benefits of the dominant ethnicity, thus unintentionally perpetuating injustice,” it says.
