Another Democrat snake tongue-flicker: Tony Blinken, Obama’s deputy national security advisor

Snakes flick their tongues; humans don’t.

Snakes flick their tongues for a good reason — to get a better sense of its surroundings by “tasting” the air. Most snakes have an excellent sense of smell to compensate for their poor eyesight and limited hearing. Although snakes have nostrils, they also use their tongues to pick up the scent of nearby prey or predators. (LiveScience)

A March 2017 FOTM poll of our readers found that an overwhelming majority (93.13%) said they never flick or stick out their tongues when talking.

But I’ve discovered that certain individuals disconcertingly do flick their tongues: Obama’s secretary of state John Kerry, Obama’s White House communications director Anita Dunn, Hillary Clinton supporter and anti-Trumper actress Meryl Streep, The View‘s harridan Joy Behar, French socialist presidential candidate Benoit Hamon, convicted murderer Jodi Arias, and “Word of Faith” Evangelical Charismatic preacher Kenneth Hagin.

The latest snake tongue-flicker I discovered is Tony Blinken, Obama’s deputy secretary of state and deputy national security advisor.

On April 11, 2017, Blinken was interviewed by Charlie Rose on PBS, along with Bret Stephens of the Wall Street Journal, on Trump’s missile strike against Syria. Here’s the video, posted to Charlie Rose’s website, in which Blinken frequently punctuated his speech by flicking his tongue.

I can’t slow down the Charlie Rose video to take screenshots of Blinken’s tongue-flicking. So I found a video on YouTube (where I can slow down the video’s speed) of Blinken being interviewed on Charlie Rose on Feb. 17, 2016.

Here are screenshots I took from the Feb. 17, 2016 video of Blinken flicking his tongue. In a video of only 1 minute 44 seconds, by my count Blinken flicked his tongue out at least 4 times.

Note: At least 5 of the 8 snake tongue-flickers named in this post have Jewish ancestry. I don’t know what that means.

  1. I have no idea what it implies but I do know that it’s clearly a perverse form of non-verbal communication that (except for the aged) almost everyone considers revolting enough to suggest moral turpitude. But it may be a nervous tic. Who knows? Crypto poster girl Anita ‘Dunn’ was WH communications director at one point–of all things–, which at least tells us who was running Obama with such blatant and double-edged grinning mockery of the American people.

  2. Add to the list Mike Cernovich in his 60 Minutes interview. I appreciate much of the man’s work, but he is a pretty self-important and boastful man who was raised Christian but now rejects those beliefs.

    • Good grief. I don’t watch 60 Minutes, but will look at the Cernovich interview.
      I stopped following him on Twitter after he recently rhapsodized about taking a mind-altering drug (forgot the name).


      • I don’t watch TV at all, but Cernovich has a way of making sure everybody knows, at least in some circles.

        At least 7 flicks in about 90 seconds here:

  3. Why are you indicating the religion of these people? Are you saying that Jews are snakes?


    • Actually, you are saying Jews are snakes, not I.
      Did you not read my sentence in the post: “I don’t know what that means”?

      Nor is this about religion: my words are “of Jewish ancestry”. Jews comprise 1.7% to 2.6% of the total U.S. population in 2012 (Wikipedia), and yet 50% or 4 of the 8 tongue-flickers identified in this post are Americans of Jewish ancestry. Do you not find that of interest? Or are you one of those who cry “anti-Semitism!” whenever something is said about Jews that you don’t like — even when it’s factual and true?
      our rulers are those whom we can't criticize

  4. A well known Jew, known as an authority on religion, said that the religious Jews are:

    “You snakes! You brood of vipers! How will you escape being condemned to hell?” – Jesus, Matthew 23

  5. “They who call themselves Jews but are not and are of the Synagogue of Satan.” This is what may be going on. In other words, they lie, and subconsciously give themselves away.

  6. Sometimes projecting the tongue is an attempt to wet the lips. And sometimes the mouth is dry because of immediate emotional stress, which at times can be due to violating the truth. I can picture many a Dem periodically activating the tongue in this manner as a way of punctuating his speech to gain time and to refresh his mouth in preparation for more lies.

  7. You can also add Matthew Kelly to the list, the newest Catholic darling who has taken many a parish by storm. In my daughter’s confirmation class, they played some of his clips and I remembered your post about tongue issues, and knew this guy definitely qualified. He hardly mentions anything uniquely Christian, let alone Catholic. Why so many bishops have embraced him is beyond me. I would’ve done some research and left a link for proof, but I simply can’t stand listening to him anymore.
