Ro, The Hypocrite: All Talk, No Walk!

In a recent post we discussed how Ro Khanna, a member of the Pakistan caucus, refuses to be critical of Pakistan even when their PM, Imran Khan, eulogizes Osama bin Laden as a martyr and refused to call him a terrorist while comparing Osama to George Washington

And this was in spite of more than 230 organizations from across the US hand-delivering a letter to him to consider his stand. Ro had joined the Pakistani caucus in July 2019, after meeting Imran Khan, who is also called Taliban Khan due to his proximity and sympathy for the Taliban.

The two soldiers represented are Cupertino's own Matthew Axelson, and James Suh, two Navy SEAL's who died fighting the Taliban in Afghanistan during Operation Red Wings.  "Lone Survivor", the book and movie, recalls their courage and sacrifice.

"Axe", Navy SEALS, Taliban & Pakistan

Matthew "Axe" Axelson was a graduate of Monta Vista High School, in Cupertino, who joined the US Navy, and became a Navy SEAL. A Navy Cross and a Purple Heart recipient, he gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country, when he died fighting the Taliban, in Kunar province, Afghanistan during Operations Red Wings. Taliban operations in the region were lead by a man called Ahmed Shah





Operation Red Wings was a counter-insurgency operation by the United States Armed Forces in 2005, to kill or capture Ahmad Shah (Taliban) a known terrorist and head of the militia, "Mountain Tigers".

         ... 

A team of four Navy SEALs, tasked for surveillance and reconnaissance of a group of structures known to be used by Shah and his men, fell into an ambush by Shah and his group just hours after inserting into the area by Fast-roping from an MH-47 helicopter.[2] Three of the four SEALs were killed, and a quick reaction force helicopter sent in for their aid was shot down with a rocket-propelled grenade fired from an RPG-7, killing all eight U.S. Navy SEALs and all eight U.S. Army Special Operations aviators on board.

 

Ahmed Shah escaped, found shelter in Pakistan, regrouped to return to Afghanistan.
 

Cupertino's Memorial Park: The Guardian Sculpture.

Cupertino's Memorial Park has a Veterans Memorial with a bronze sculpture called "The Guardian" which was dedicated in 2007 and memorializes "Axe" and a fellow SEAL, James Suh.

Two Faced Ro Khanna: Celebrates SEALs Taliban Killed

 

Cupertino's post office is about a half a mile, from the Veteran's Memorial which hosts The Guardian honoring "Axe". In order to get some more spotlight on himself, Ro Khanna sponsored a bill to rename Cupertino Post office after "Axe".  He recently talked about the bill passing the House in a post he shared on his Facebook Page.



However when it comes to taking a stand with the Pakistani authorities who harbored the Taliban who killed "Axe", Ro does little. He did not have the moral fortitude to take Imran Khan to task when he eulogized Osama bin Laden as a martyr in the Pakistani parliament in June 2020.

The same Ro Khanna who is unwilling to be critical of Pakistan, celebrates the SEALs who died because of Pakistan's duplicitous support of the Taliban!

Distressed and Shocked

Given Ro's tango with terrorist harboring Pakistan & Taliban supporter PM, Imran Khan, we are extremely distressed by Ro using the ultimate sacrifice of our Navy SEALS for his own political gains.

Ro is all Talk, No Walk.

#HowLoWillRoGo?


Can we wait further to find out How Low Will Ro Go?

This is a pattern; it seems there is no one, even a dead Navy SEAL, who Ro will not use & exploit to bolster his credentials. From faking endorsements by Presidents Clinton (2004) & Obama (2014), to taking U-Turns on his pledges on SCA5/ACA5/Prop-16, there are just too many red flags in his brief political career for us to not act. 

We helped build up Ro with our support; it is our moral duty to vote him out. CA-17 deserves representatives with integrity.

Please join his former supporters to show him the exit.
