Krauthammer on Ahamdinejad's anti-Semitic rant
Charles Krauthammer comments
on Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's anti-Semitic rant to the Durban II hatefest on Monday.
You would expect this at a conference like this to begin with an Orwellian event, where a man delivers an anti-Semitic rant at a conference that's ostensibly against racism.
But the deeper story is that for 30 years the third world countries have used their majority in the U.N. to hijack western ideas of liberalism such as human rights.
This conference is going to issue an edict in which it says that the persecution of anybody who criticizes Islam is a good thing and is a defense of the freedom of speech. The persecution is the way of defending freedom of speech.
And here's the worst part. We are subsidizing this through our membership in the U.N. We may have walked out, but we are the ones who are paying for the sandbox in which these tin pot dictators are shooting spit balls at us, and we're subsidizing the spit balls as well.
It's time to bid the UN good-bye.
