Gasping! What sparked that tweet and the #AmbPowersTweets hashtag? Well, as Twitchy readers know, Amb. Samantha Power further exposed her own idiocy with a tweet about Daniel Pearl, the journalist beheaded by jihadists in 2002. You see, all we need is some “reconciliation” and stuff to “break the cycle of violence,” guys! Twitter users were baffled by her inexplicable tweet: Victim blaming and evil or just incredibly befuddled stupidity? You decide.

In the meantime, it’s time to laugh instead of cry with some oh-so-deep thinking, Power-style:

Wiping. Tears.

Will this faux-pology be forthcoming?


And this Twitter user brings it home by tying it in with some delicious Piers Morgan-related snark:

Keep it coming, Twitter.


‘What the hell is wrong with you?’ Was this Samantha Power baffling Daniel Pearl tweet evil or stupid?

    If we had only chosen to build those twin towers someplace where the terrorists weren’t flying those planes, those people wouldn’t have been hurt.

    Sounds like people are speaking truth to Power.

      Good question. Libs get more upset by us calling terrorists the word terrorist than they do the actual terrorist act.

      Just like the Boston Bombing last year. As soon as they were outed as Radical Islamists, the libs started a “Free Jahar” movement and started bashing anyone who tried to bring up Radical Islam. The left was more concerned with defending Islam than they were being outraged over two welfare recipient immigrants setting off bombs.

      Or when they say that Muslims are the religion of Peace and that they are more tolerant than other religions.

      Google search about how gay people are treated in the Middle East. It’ll completely destroy the “Religion of Peace” talking point.

    It’s so nice to see the Anti Semitic political leanings of Joe Kennedy Sr. are alive and well in Ambassador Powers.

    I see the problem right off, she is John Kerry’s illegitimate son.

  • Exodus2011

    ** this Samantha Power tweet was only ‘dumb’ from the POV that she inadvertently allowed a glimpse of the truth wrt her real thinking, (*and* the Obama Regime’s thinking also) before a ‘whoops’ …. and a hasty cover-up attempt ….

    IMV, these people are PRO Palestinian and ANTI Semetic at their core, regardless of the spin they project to the outside (in order to keep the US liberal Jewish community on board with the Democrat Party)

    I’m still trying to wrap my head around it all.

    It truly sounds like she’s saying that, somehow, Daniel Pearl going to Afghanistan to do his job was his fault and thus his death is his own responsibility.

    That’s like blaming me for getting shot by a mugger because I didn’t dodge the gorram bullets!

  • GaryTheBrave

    Apparently Ambassador Powers is antisemitruck.

  • LegalizeShemp

    The “cycle of hate” means we are just as responsible as radical Muslims are. Liberals suffer from a psychological disorder known as “moral relativism” whereby they can’t distinguish between violence for freedom vs. violence for suppression. These are misguided, sick people.

    “Cycle of violence”. Wasn’t that in Ghostbusters? RIP Harold Ramis.

    • tops116 ✓Quipper

      The Ghostbusters’ story is a reminder that individual accountability of sliming & shutting down containment grids are required to break the cycles of mass hysteria.

    #AmbPowersTweets: Julie Boonstra needs to break the cycles of healthcare cynicism by accepting accountability for Obamacare premiums not being affordable and by shutting up when Rep. Gary Peters tells her to.

    And yes. This woman really IS in our government and ‘speaks’ to foreign heads of state.

    She’s been reading too many of those #ChuckToddScoops with logic like this. Wow.

    I can’t believe Daniel Pearl was responsible for dulling that Muslim knife with his neck…..he should be more careful next time !
