America's Darkest Hour

JUICE—As the last U.S. Service Members have now departed Afghanistan, signaling the end of the most embarrassing retreat in American history, both Republicans and Democrats across the nation are shaking their heads in disbelief as to what transpired over the past several months. The American Surrender is now complete.

Outside of a few Democratic apologists in Congress, the silence coming from the Democratic Party as the U.S. completes its pull out and leaves Americans and allies behind to be murdered by the Taliban and other terrorists, it's deafening.

This debacle was not about Republicans or Democrats. It was about competence or incompetence.

There is no way that any of the past Presidents Clinton, Bush, Trump, Obama, or Bush Sr, would have left billions of dollars in military equipment and Americans behind.

This is nothing less than shameful.

Again, look at how Democrats around Florida are taking this retreat. Complete silence, except of course for those pushing the Biden apology—Reps. Charlie Crist, Val Demings, and Darren Soto.

Trump Calls Biden’s Afghanistan U.S. Military Retreat ‘Stupid’ and ‘Feeble-Brained’

 

Rep. Matt Gaetz-Lloyd Austin is one of the most incompetent people to have ever served in a cabinet for a President of the United States.

Rick Scott-At the direction of @POTUS, the U.S. has now stranded hundreds of Americans in Afghanistan after giving their names to known terrorists. We can’t fight endless wars, but the scope & consequence of Biden’s failure here is staggering. We cannot rest until all Americans come home.

Rep. Anna V. Eskamani -Florida, where our Republican state leaders like to talk about "law and order" but don't like to practice it themselves.

Rep. Omari Hardy-Republicans are lying when they tell you they want law and order.

Ron DeSantis-When I served in Iraq, I saw firsthand how PTS affected the brave men and women serving. That’s why when I was in Congress, I introduced the PAWS Act, which was signed into law last week to help prevent dependence on opioids, reduce suicide & help get veterans back on their feet.

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz-All those families impacted by and without power due #HurricaneIda are in our thoughts, and we hope everyone stays safe as flooding continues to threaten the region. Thankfully, federal resources are mobilizing.
